On 23rd May, EuroPris was invited to the plenary meeting of the Committee on the Operation of European Conventions on Co-operation in Criminal Matters (PC-OC) to present its European Prison Information System (EPIS). This system, which provides a base platform for the collection and dissemination of prison related information, continues to develop so that it can be utilised as source of data for a variety of purposes. Administrations seeking to repatriate a foreign inmate to his/her country of origin, must take into consideration recommendations made under the Convention on the Transfer of Sentenced Persons and EC Framework Decision 2008/909/JHA. In the context of conducting prisoner transfers there is no doubt a great deal of information is required by an authority. EPIS is holding data on a number of European Prison Agencies, provides a base platform for the collection and dissemination of prison related information. Read more on about the meeting here.
