Australia is planning to build its first prison solely for militants with extreme views to prevent the radicalization of other inmates. The move comes days after a shooting and hostage situation in Melbourne that was later claimed by Islamic State.

The new “mini-max” jail will be part of Goulburn Supermax Correctional Centre, a maximum and minimum security prison complex for male prisoners, in New South Wales (NSW).

We don’t want to see people already behind bars subject to radicalization,” NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian said on Sunday, announcing the project.

The government is planning to spend AUS$47 million (US$35 million) over the next three years on the project, dubbed Supermax II. The new jail, equipped with CCTV cameras, will house 54 prisoners. The authorities hope the facility will be completed by the end of 2018.


I am in favor of splitting the two off to stop the spread of Islam in prisons. last thing we need is hardened criminals being brainwashed into action for Allah. But to me the cost seems way to high for a simple 54 people?
