Mugla Prison

No I have not been arrested..............Had a day trip with a difference yesterday ! Went to Mugla Prison with a Turkish friend to visit his friend. It was just like a scene from The Great Escape...................lots of barb wire and high turrets with Jandarme with machine(?) guns watching everyone .I was dying to take photographs but thought better of it !
Had to go to Mugla courthouse first for a pass for my friend to go in (I declined the offer !)
We were not sure of the side road from Mugla but fortunately a prison van went past so we followed that............and the vans back door was gaping open !
When we got there my friend had to hand over to me all his stuff like phone wallet etc and his trouser belt...........I had visions of everybodies trousers falling down as they walked in .
The prisons in a beautiful place.On a plain(plane?) below mountains with clouds rolling down the side of them.Very beautiful and very scenic.
All in all it was a very weird day and I felt I had been part of some strange film.

Re: Mugla Prison

Hi Lyn, very interesting
but did you see the cells as well, I have been told that generally there are a lot of prisoners in one cell and life in a Turkish prison is very bad....(you get hardly any medical care, have no privacy) inspite of the beautifull location.
I have a Turkish friend who has been kept in prison for 8 days in Torba because of a car accident (very serious one, two people were killed), and from what he tells me, prison is too bad (he had an injury at the shoulder but nobody took any notice of that).
Still, I think you had a very interesting visit

Can you tell us what they use in UK prisons? Is there Rose garden instead of Barb wire?

Re: Mugla Prison

Coming from someone who has worked in an English prison for the last 16 years I can confirm that yes, they do have rose garden. No joke, they seriusly have rose gardens along with a variety of other shrubs!

Re: Mugla Prison

Well I can vouch that Milas prison is pretty awful. Luckily the lad I visited was 'in' with the guards and because I was obviously a 'Yabancı' we got to sit in their office and drink tea. I know they don't keep anyone at Milas for long but it sounds like they show it on Turkish TV - each cell has bunk beds with a head man and a lad running around for him at the bottom of the pecking order. They do get to do things though.... I was swamped with 'interesting' presents like beaded keyrings and even a 1 metre long replica of a gulet!! Ah the colourful tapestry of life in Turkey......

Re: Mugla Prison

Right VWBug from what i have read about UK prisons they are like four star hotels, and seems to be the bigger the crime the more well treated they are, take Myra Hindley in the years before she died. She had her own luxury cell (if that is what you could call a nicely decorated room with an en-suite!!!) They get free education, fantastic food cooked and prepared for you they have tv sports facilities. They also i am told get a small amount of money each week so if they are doing say 15 years which is normally then reduced to about 3 months (given the farce system called justice) they come out with a fair some. In fact i read in the paper last week some criminals re-offend just to get back in!!!

Re: Mugla Prison

Turks should transport their prisoners to UK prisons then, do they have some extra room for them? I have heard that they are running out of room in Turkey
