ARTICLES / PROJECTS: An Editor-In-Chief Behind The Bars (MOLDOVA)

An Editor-In-Chief Behind The Bars

Denis is reserved but also willing to communicate. Without reading his record, it would be hard to believe he is only 18 years old. His head shaved, a bit hunched, with intelligent eyes and a straight look, he sits with a notebook under his arm and periodically jots down ideas, verses, or maybe something totally different.

Denis is the Editor-in-Chief of the first newspaper in the country for incarcerated people. The paper, ?AerZona?, is published in the Lipcani Penitentiary for minors with UNICEF support.
