In the U.S., the prison in which the banker Epstein committed suicide will be closed

The prison in New York, where the financier Jeffrey Epstein, who committed suicide, was held, will be closed due to inappropriate conditions of detention of prisoners, The New York Times newspaper reports, citing the U.S. Department of Justice.

According to the newspaper earlier, the conditions of detention in the Metropolitan Correctional Center prison were criticized by prisoners themselves, lawyers, and even judges.

“All facilities of the federal penitentiary system should not only be reliable and safe but also provide prisoners with the resources and programs necessary for a successful return to society after release,” the Ministry of Justice said in a statement.

The agency reports that it has decided to close the prison “at least temporarily” until the existing problems are resolved.

Currently, the Metropolitan Correctional Center holds 233 prisoners; they will be transferred to other prisons in the region.
