Aprendizajes mutuos desde el centro penitenciario de Donostia/San Sebastián (Martutene)

Eugenio Artetxe

This year, a special course was organised in Martutene prison, which consisted of a meeting with inmates in the centre, with the aim of breaking down stigmatisation and taking steps towards the inclusion of these people. 

Once the course has finished, Eugenio Artetxe, Director of Justice of the Basque Government, states in this interview that prisoners maintain all their rights except those restricted by the sentence, which is basically freedom of movement. Once they have served their sentence, they return to society.
