Bulgaria -Prison guards protest against deplorable conditions -June 10, 2012

The Confederation of the Independent Syndicates in Bulgaria (KNSB) organised a protest in front of the Justice ministry on 10 June. The prison guards demand more funding for the overcrowded prisons, higher wages and better benefits. The Bulgarian Helsinki Committee too, has repeatedly addressed the issue of overcrowding with the government, stating it visited prisons where toilets were lacking and some prisoners were sleeping on the floor on mats.
