It sounds daft doesn't it?

Does it sound daft that there are a thousand people waiting to be executed in that country?

"People living outside don't know the conditions inside the prisons. We used to fight for clean water.

"There's violence, drugs and homosexuality. But the situation has improved slightly in recent years."

Overcrowding and lack of sanitation was a major problem and many prisoners suffered from skin diseases.

Bangladesh's 67 jails hold around 75,000 prisoners, at least three times their capacity.

It couldn't happen here could it?

Conditions in a poor country are worsened by social chasms and ignorance. But the big difference between the rich and the poor is exactly the same as it is in Britain and the USA:

The poor are the ones who go to prison. The rich tend to get way with everything. And the colour of your skin or some other class or caste is a major consideration.
