It should be made known to the general public which prisoners are granted these special leaves because i cant enjoy my christmas freely knowing that the murderer who killed my friend, uncle, cousin or sister is in the proximity before her rehabilitation period has expired and blood is still dripping on her hands.

Uri dofo iwe! Prisoners getting released are from an Open Prison and Open Prisons only house convicts who committed non-violent crime in fact they are those who committed level 1 offences otherwise known as misdemeanors which are non-violent in mature and carry a light sentence. Murderers, rapists, robbers and the likes will never be housed at an open prison rather they'll be at a maximum security prison and in the level 4 section which houses the toughest criminals on the land.
