The latest prison performance stats are here. Of the 17 prisons:
- 13 are deemed effective
- Three are exceeding their targets (Arohata, Tongariro and Waikeria)
- One is deemed exceptional – Mount Eden
So Mount Eden is the only prison in New Zealand that is deemed exceptional for its rehabilitation – and that is the one Labour and Greens want to sack – purely on ideological grounds.
Putting ideology ahead of effective rehabilitate – very wrong.
