The Prison of Normal Security of Lushnja was built in early '70 destined as priso for women. In 1990, the prison was transferred to Ali Demi in Tirana, adopitng the facility as a normal security prison with a capacity of  176 people.

the Prison infrastructure remains problematic. It includes two wings; for the management of the prison population; in most of time it is overcrowded.

ARCT has constantly raised concerns about the hygiene, and difficult ventilation spaces for the inmates.

There is no autoambulance for the transport of inmates in cases of emergencies. 

ARCT has interviewed around 180 inmates (2009- 2013).
