There are more African student in North Cyprus jail

Over half of convicted criminals and detainees at the Lefkosa Central Prison are foreigners.

According to report by, Yeniduzen, the prison which was constructed in 1984 is struggling to cope with the increase in its prison population while it waits the completion of the new prison, funded by Turkey.

According to sources, the prison has a population of 584 inmates, 315 of whom come from 40 different countries. Of those who are foreign prisoners, 169 convicts and detainees come from more distant countries, many of whom are of African origin, and are students. Additionally, there are 146  from Turkey. The remaining 269 inmates are from the TRNC or are TRNC/Turkish dual nationals.

The fact that there are so many African students in jail has led to a call to revise the terms of “university standards”.
