Annex 2 Acknowledgments Many individuals assisted in the Project on which this Report is based. Many officials, prisoners and ex-prisoners talked to us at length and on several different occasions about the issues discussed in the Report, and though, in order to protect the anonymity of all, we cannot name even those who would have been quite happy to have their remarks attributed to them, we remember them all with gratitude and take great pleasure in expressing our thanks here.
We also thank the following organisations who so willingly and graciously helped us with contacts, interviews and in a variety of other ways.
