The Austrian Ministry of Justice confirmed on the 7th that it is conducting self-inspection of prisons across the country to avoid loopholes similar to the bail of the perpetrators of the Vienna terrorist attack.
The Austrian Ministry of Justice stated that the self-inspection operation involved prison cells and factories, mainly targeting 229 prisoners who were imprisoned on terrorism charges or showed extreme tendencies.
During the self-examination operation, inspectors found suspicious objects in 12 prisons, most of which were handwritten documents suggesting extremist background.
A gunman shot at a crowd in the center of Vienna, the Austrian capital, on the evening of the 2nd, killing 4 people and wounding 23 people including a policeman. The attacker himself was shot dead.
The Austrian police confirmed that the attacker was Kuytim Fajzule, who has dual citizenship of Austria and North Macedonia.
The man was sentenced to 22 months in prison in Austria last April. He later participated in a de-radicalization project and was subsequently released on bail.
