Contest #195 answer: Bastøy prison, Oslofjord, Norway

About 75 km south of Oslo, in the Oslofjord lies Bastøy Island, a minimum security prison with appr. 115 inmates.

It is to my believe the most liberal prison in the world, without armed guards or barbed wire. The main problem is not prisoners wanting to escape, but to keep visitors out of the prison.

And the reoffending rate of inmates who served their sentence here is by 16% the lowest in the world.

This is a fascinating documentary about prison life on Bastøy

Those who wouldn’t escape:

  • Ivar Bonsaksen
  • hhgygy
  • Matt Manolides
  • Chris Nason
  • Milosh, Serbia
  • mccrumplair

– Hint –

  • Sasha Smith
  • Paul Franson
  • David Kozina
