People incarcerated for default in payment in fines
From: Jessica Lim
Dear Ministry of Justice,
How many people have been incarcerated or sentenced for the non-payment of fines?
Please provide data for all people incarcerated for the non-payment of fines.
Please also provide details for the length of the sentence for all people sentences (whether it be primary, secondary, tertiary. etc offences)?
Also, where would I be able to find additional information relating to people arrested and/or incarcerated for defaulting on student loan defaults and the non-payment of fines?
From: correspondence, official
Ministry of Justice
