The world's most expensive prison, which becomes a big issue during the tenure of every US President

Many questions arise in the mind as soon as the name of the jail is taken. Prisoners have to face many problems including eating and drinking. But there is such a prison in America, where there is no point thinking about all these things. Crores of rupees are spent annually on every inmate living in this prison. For this reason, this prison is known as the most expensive prison in the world.


The name of this prison is 'Guantanamo Bay', which is located in Cuba. This prison got its name because it is situated on the banks of Guantanamo Bay. According to the report of the American newspaper New York Times, there are currently 40 prisoners in this prison and each prisoner spends around Rs 93 crore annually.


However, Guantanamo Bay prison becomes a topic of discussion during every presidential term. There is a possibility that the newly elected President of the United States, Joe Biden, can get the prison locked. Because saving the money spent on this prison will benefit the American economy.


Let us know that just before Trump, former President Barack Obama talked about the closure of Guantanamo Bay Jail. Barack Obama had said that inmates of such a costly prison should be sent to another safe prison and the jail should be closed. However, this could not happen.

The Guantanamo Bay Jail has three buildings, two intelligence headquarters, and three hospitals. Along with this, separate compounds have also been made for lawyers, where prisoners can talk to them. The staff and inmates of this jail get facilities like hotels. The prison has a church, gym, play station, and cinema hall for the prisoners.

US Navy base was first in Guantanamo Bay, but later it was made Detention Center. George W. Bush, the President of the United States, built a compound here, where the terrorists were kept. This camp was named X-ray.
