Australia - High risk inmates at an Australian prison will no longer be allowed to speak Arabic during visiting hours and phone calls, The Australian Daily Telegraph reported on Sunday.

Prisoner guards  at the SuperMax unit in Goulburn jail will stand within hearing distance of conversations and will be able to record them as part of the effort to monitor the communications of inmates for any terror related messages that will be delivered from within the prison. Documents however cannot be checked as they are protected by legal privilege.

Among the challenges facing Australia’s prison system is the fact that prisoners linked to any terror activity often do not converse in English. 


“One of the issues that came out of that process was that some of these people, these high-risk ­inmates, were conducting their ­discussions in Arabic, or at least not English,” the State Attorney General of New South Wales, Brad Hazzard said.

“This clearly needed looking at and action, in my view.”. 

The new policy, which will be relevant to 13 inmates, is part of a broader effort to combat and curb radicalism in Australia, a process which has included employing moderate imams in the prison system in order to prevent the permutation of Islamist and jihadist ideology among a growing number of Muslims and Muslim converts behind bars.

This is not a big deal, but it really would be right to let them speak away in their native tongue.

Either way, they are not being denied free speech.

But still, I do not think that the reality is that the caliphate of hate is going to take off because the prisoner had a right to enjoy his native tongue.

Still, it makes sense.

Give the future a good conduct before the wicked are able to use their native skills to decimate the war of human trust.

Good move.
