Pol­ish jails all ready for Euro 2012 thugs

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - UK&WORLD UPDATE -

POLAND is putting hun­dreds of judges on stand-by and mov­ing some 600 in­mates out of pris­ons in cities host­ing Euro­pean cham­pi­onship games next month to pre­pare for law-break­ing foot­ball fans. No ma­jor dis­tur­bances are ex­pected dur­ing Euro 2012, which Poland is co­host­ing with neigh­bour­ing Ukraine, said Jus­tice Min­istry spokes­woman Pa­trycja Loose. She said Euro­pean foot­ball cham­pi­onships do not have a rep­u­ta­tion for vi­o­lence but that the gov­ern­ment would rather be safe than sorry.
