    Norway: One-Quarter of Prisoners Are Foreigners

    Some 25 percent of prisoners in Norwegian jails are citizens of other countries than Norway.

    This is a huge jump from 2003, when just 15 percent of the prisoners were non-Norwegians, reports Aftenposten.no.

    For comparison, just 5 percent of those living in Norway are not Norwegian citizens.

    The Justice Department report reveals that 683 prisoners began serving sentences in 2007, although the actual figure could be higher, as the report only counts sentences and doesn’t include criminals who are directly transferred from arrest to imprisonment.

    The list of nationalities in Norwegian jails is topped by Poland, Iraq, Lithuania, Sweden, and Somalia.

    The realistisc number is probably much higher, since this statistic bases the numbers of people with norwegian citizenship.
    When Varg Vikernes was in prison, he said there were very few norwegians there and mostly africans, east-europeans and pakistanis.

    I believe I read him say recently somewhere he was literally only 1 of 2 Norwegians at a particular facility.
