333% More prisoners in 30 years

The head of the Prison Organizations – Ashghar Jahangir came out with an announcement about the conditions in prisons. He said that the population of the country increased to about 80 million but the penal population of the prisoners is absolutely not compatible with this population. The prisoners don’t have to capacity for the current population. Back in 1979, the country has had a population of 37 million and 8,557 prisoners and in 2016 there are 223,000 prisoners while the population is 78 million. This shows that the growth is absolutely non-simetric and to be considered.
