Retirement Benefits for Prisoners to be Cancelled

Until 2009 prisoners will be entitled to receive retirement benefits.They are also eligible for study grants given to people who do not live at home. Thereafter a new law will cancel these benefits. Subsidies for those who are unfit to work have already been cancelled. Last year a majority of the Parliament had also asked the government to investigate the possibility to have prisoners with the means, pay for their stay in prison. The government has decided to reject this motion.
