Foreign Prisoners and Deportation
A common problem for many governments with regards to foreign prisoner treatments concerns what to do with the prisoners after their sentence as been served. Many nations hold that they have no obligation to house the prisoners after their sentence and often revoke visas for stay. Deportation is typically forced and requires many legal obstacles for efficient practice.
An idea pushed by elements in the government of the United Kingdom includes cash rewards for prisoners who voluntarily leave after their sentence. This is an effort to prevent repeat offences by prisoners who leave prisons with minimal life skills and repeat crimes, the £500 reward would avoid future costs by the British society.
Is this a viable alternative to forcible deportation? Is the risk of prisoners refusing the deal worth the lack of force applied? Issues such as this will be relevant during your committee come March and are worth considering.
