Australia is to build its first prison aimed at isolating militants and stopping the spread of radical beliefs through the prison system as part of efforts to eliminate terrorism, the premier of New South Wales state said on Sunday. The unit will be within a maximum-security prison and have capacity for 54 inmates, who will be isolated and intensely monitored, said the state's Premier Gladys Berejiklian "We'll be giving $47 million over the next three years to have the extra capacity to isolate those prisoners who are likely to try a spread radicalization through the prison network," Berejiklian told reporters. There are 33 people within the New South Wales’ prison system who have been jailed for terrorist offences, the state government said.Australia has seen a series of “lone wolf” Islamist-inspired attacks recently, prompting a review of police tactics and the powers of state and federal authorities. "We’re a government taking nothing to chance, we'll be making sure we continue to have the toughest position in the nation in relation to reducing and eliminating terrorism activity," Berejiklian said. Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull last week signaled a drive to reform parole laws, including a ban on parole for violent offenders with links to militancy, following a deadly siege claimed by the Islamic State group on Monday.
