Cork city has gone to the dogs.

If you put them all in prisons 23 hours a day you would be in contravention of human rights law, and the outcome would be compensation for those prisoners.

Is that that just the case in Irish law? I know of a Cat AA prisoner in England who is banged up 23 hours a day like many others. His issue is he refuses to co-operate with authorities as he says he's wrongly convicted for a triple murder.
