Are you a war criminal concerned about your prospects for decent housing when awaiting trial? Have you been kept up at nights in a cold sweat, not thinking about the blood on your hands but whether your roommate will snore, your beds bunked, or internet access abridged?
Well, keep going to that gym and working out, because you're going to have to have the spirit to win! I don't mean win the trial (ha!), but win in indicted war criminal volleyball! Slate details how accomodating the UN is with its mixed nuts:
Inmates here certainly don't lack for entertainment options. Besides television, radio, and access to any print media they choose to subscribe to, the prisoners have access to English classes (which boast almost universal attendance), computer workshops, and a range of art instruction from ceramics and painting to more esoteric techniques like model-ship building. There are comfortable visiting facilities, including rooms reserved for conjugal visits.
