Recent figures given during a Westminster debate in the UK showed there were six Bermudians incarcerated in England and Wales as of 31 December 2012. Numbers revealed last month indicated there were seven Bermudians incarcerated in England and Wales as of June 2012. That was a jump from 2011, when records indicate there was only one Bermudian jailed.
There were a total of 83,757 prisoners in the system as of the end of 2012, with 10,592 of them being foreign nationals. The foreign prisoners were divided by region, with Bermuda classified as part of the ‘West Indies’ which had some 1,007 citizens incarcerated in England and Wales at the end of 2012. Jamaicans made up the bulk of that number, with Jamaica listed at 821 — the highest number of any nation worldwide.
There was no information released on what the individuals were jailed for, or how long they were jailed for.
