The Justice Ministry announced Tuesday that it plans to expand cooperation with major outdoor clothing and equipment producer Montbell, with inmates at prisons across Japan, to make handicrafts designed by the company as part of the ministry's correctional efforts.

The cooperation agreement was signed in June 2019, but due to the high popularity of the products and positive results of the correctional program, both parties have decided to expand the initiative and involve inmates at more prisons.
