A pedophile wants to room up to the family. An Islamist, and don't want a female guard checked his cell. A racer wants to subscribe to a Autoheftli. The greed of men who have done a Bad thing. For Ines E. Follador-width Moser is the everyday life. Your Job is to decide on the fulfillment of these wishes.
For the past eight years she has been the Director of the prison Sennhof in Chur. 54 men sitting there. In January your task even more challenging, the prisoners leave the for his Close notorious bunkers and rein in a new complex. 23 kilometres further into the mountains. The new prison Cazis Tignez at a cost of 119 million Swiss francs and offers space for three times as many men. The move has the Sennhof-Head strong, he is their biggest challenge so far.

The 59-Year-old is sitting in your new office. Straight back, the hands resting on the edge of the table. She speaks of moving, the joy of upcoming tasks. In General rates. More and more there. For the time being.
you don't want a feel-good oasis
Bare is the room. Soon images from the Kunsthaus in Chur delivered, but a lot more interior it will not give here. She was not one that had to rebuild their work to the oasis of well-being, explains Follador-width Moser. Through the barred window of the views of barbed wire and concrete wall. This will be your view for the next few years. In the bareness between the thick walls she has found her calling.
"I was here in Sennhof as a woman only at the very beginning of the question."Ines E. Follador-width Moser
At the time of their appointment in 2011, she was the only woman who headed a prison for men. And, of course, the same question emerged as: How does a woman in this environment? Ines Follador-width Moser shrugs. "I was here in Sennhof as a woman only at the very beginning of the question." As they had been by the inmates tested – they would have looked to see how far you could go with your claims, your Consultation. "But that was because I was new, not because I was a woman."
The prisoners were not far. With the newcomer, the mother, who had caught up with 30 of your studies, and let himself talk. But exceptions there was not. The had you pegged as a Boss already in the Chur Migros club school. "Consequence," she says, "is here the most Important thing." For all of the same rules would have to apply, otherwise... she breaks off the sentence. She obviously wanted to summon scenes of Chaos, of revolting prisoners up.
The slope to the right
In the Wake of the country discussed the Carlos affair to those Detainees who, with his violence and his Obstinacy, the judicial enforcement of its limits, not discussed by the Public recently about the inner workings of the prison – about appropriate punishment; dealing with people who will support the consensus of a society.
Follador-width Moser is well aware of the sometimes distorted the outside perception of your workplace. The place behind the wall offers a space for all sorts of clichés – in General, it are dark. It avoids areas therefore further attack. Of course, there is violence, but it was also outside a Problem. The trait to name things without being judgemental, is probably their most pronounced. It has an almost Zen-attitude to everything. This makes it difficult to grasp. To do this, the almost compulsive tendency to order.
In the prison everyday life is both of great importance. The days consist of fixed sequences, the rules are clear. Reveille at 6 am. Work from 7.30 am, cell no conclusion at 19.45. Friction, irregularities are undesirable. And yet there are men with emotions, many of the runs are extreme, some of the damaged, sick, and others. And all of them are thrown back into the bondage on themselves, often for the first Time in her life.
Ines Follador-width Moser knows the stories of the men who sit in the office opposite. She knows to the depths. You have to be on guard, says the woman, petite in stature, 160 cm large. That's why she always sits on the chair, standing closer to the door. More safety precautions, you don't need but. A very dicey Situation you've never experienced.
no one managed to escape
For the native Gossauerin, grew up with four siblings and up to five foster children, these perpetrators, people with whom she works together. "And part of this is that I have a relationship to them, a certain proximity must allow." Of course this is a balancing act, she explains, but they have also the contract for the rehabilitation of prisoners. 99 percent of the Prisoners come out one day again.
About 7,000 people are currently sitting in the 102 Swiss prisons, the utilization rate is 94 percent. This value is not changed in the last years, about the same. This has a lot to do with the Revision of the criminal code of 2007, the short prison sentences for first delinquent almost entirely abolished. Switzerland is a Europe-wide pioneering role. Also in relation to the work with the prisoners.
Since the murder in Zollikerberg, where a sex offender during a prison leave, a 20-year-old scout leader killed, the local prison converted. 26 years later, the prison therapy is more oriented towards offense, the risk assessment professional, the probation important. According to the Federal office for statistics (BFS) is the rate for re-admission within a period of three years – 17.3 percent. In the near abroad (Germany, France, Italy) is up to twice as high.
Nevertheless, have repeatedly criticized the excessive focus on the offender, of soft justice, the speech is then. In the new Grisons jail if you want to see a lot of it. The hallways are bright and wide, the casement of the 12-square-meter cells open, the furniture are made of wood, and in the courtyard there is a Lawn with a tree. The grid wouldn't be in front of the Windows, the jail, the appearance of a youth hostel.
"A prison cannot be a dead place. Because in here people live, sometimes for a very long time."Ines E. Follador-width Moser
For Follador-width Moser makes a lot of sense. "A prison cannot be a dead place. Because in here people live, sometimes for a very long time." It was still a prison, and this means the radical circumcision of a fundamental right: freedom. "How hard it is, you can see particularly well on the New. In the first few days, you look around constantly, always looking for a way to escape." But there is not. At least in the case of Follador-width Moser. In the Aegis of any of the outbreak was possible. In Switzerland, eight persons found according to the BFS in the past nine years, per year, the way to freedom.
Now on the move in Sennhof. The prisoners will move for a short period of time outside the prison walls. How big is the risk of an escape or even a campaign of liberation, then, does not want to betray you. Details on the move not at all. Only: It will take place sometime in January. "I can't say more – for obvious reasons, you understand." The desire of the journalists to be present during the Transfer of the inmates, not instead of them.
you no is categorically and absolutely. No further discussion. Similarly, in the absence of paedophiles, Islamists, and the serious road racers with their inappropriate Desires.
