Baden-Württemberg may use the “Fauler Pelz” in Heidelberg for hospital treatment order

Baden-Württemberg is able to use the “Fauler Pelz” prison in Heidelberg for the treatment of psychiatric disorders. After a nearly two-year dispute between Baden-Württemberg and the city of Heidelberg over the former prison, there is an amicable solution. The state can use the “Fauler Pelz” for a transitional period for hospital treatment order and thus has the urgently needed bridging solution until further imprisonment facilities are completed. After that, the “Fauler Pelz” can be used by the University of Heidelberg. This is a good result for everyone involved, especially for Leonie Dirks (head of the Ministry of Social Affairs) and Jürgen Odszuck (First Mayor of Heidelberg).
