Lithuania's Justice Ministry has applied for 8 million euros of funding from Norway to modernize the penitentiary system.

The money would be allocated from the Norwegian financial mechanism support, the Justice Ministry said on Thursday. The ministry has worked out a special program for improvement of operations of penitentiaries and prisons.

If received, the money would go towards buying 125 electronic bracelets for intensive monitoring of convicts and the necessary software.

After the new Probation Law came into force on 1 July, the Prisons Department has rented 100 bracelet sets for persons on probation.

The Justice Ministry emphasized that bracelet-assisted monitoring of one convict costs 13 litas (EUR 3.8) per day, which is considerably cheaper than sending an officer to the convict's home to check his compliance with the court-prescribed rules.

Furthermore, the Norwegian assistance would be used to renovate penitentiaries and prisons.
