Sonja visited Bredtveit prison and detention facility in Oslo. The prison is one of four prisons in Norway with only female prisoners. She met the prison management, staff and some of the inmates. The visit began with a presentation of the prison and its activities by prison leader Doris Bakken and assistant prison leader Siri Brock-Utne. In addition, prison chaplain Elisabeth Kjetilstad gave her a presentation of the art in the church.
Among other things, Sonja got to see two of the living quarters, the work operation and newly renovated visiting rooms with recently completed artistic decorations. In the housing department and work operation, she met inmates who talked about everyday life in prison.
In the work operation, the inmates receive training, a normal working day and contact with other inmates. Here, the staff and inmates showed her how they work with design and crafts. They also have their own hairdressing salon, Cup'n Cut, run by inmates. The prison also works closely with the NAV (Norwegian Labour and Welfare Administration) and schools to make the transition to life after imprisonment easier.
