The country is currently operating what has been referred to as “open prisons” where prisoners are allowed to own vehicles, leave for work or school, and host overnight guests, according to a video report by Insider.
Unlike in Africa and other parts of the world where prisons are overcrowded and virtually worse than hell with inmates packed like sardines among other dehumanising conditions, Finland has invested in its correctional infrastructure and continues to do so heavily.
The country which has been named the happiest and safest country in the world in recent years is currently funding educational programs where prisoners learn technology skills like artificial intelligence, according to the report.
In the 7-minute long video report, Insider compares how Finland’s prison system was like some years ago and how they have been improved through huge infrastructure investments.
The video which was uploaded to Insider’s Instagram page was titled: “Open Prisons Where They Learn Tech Skills”.
