“It is in fact better for someone to receive lifetime in jail, than receiving a penalty with a fine they cannot pay, but only in connection with talking of the possibility of being transferred to your home country, of course. The best is always to stay out of trouble,” she says.

“With a lifetime penalty the prisoner might be transferred after eight years and there is no fine to be paid. But with a time limited sentence with a fine, you will only get out once the fine is paid.”
