    Detailed provisions concerning the different types of prisons; their administration; prison records; functions and duties of prison directors and officers (which include "supervision of work in the prison, ensuring it is carried out in an orderly fashion and preventing any violation of laws and regulations"); admission of detainees; separation of detainees into categories according to age, criminal record and length of sentence; rights of detainees; etc. The work of detainees is regulated by sections 22-25. Those in pretrial detention on non-political charges and persons not sentenced to hard labour or death (cat.A) are not required to work, except to clean their cells, unless their skills are needed in connection with work in the prison in which case their consent and "appropriate" remuneration will be paid to them. If they wish to practice their occupations, however, the prison administration must provide them with the means of doing so. Detainees sentenced to hard labour (cat.B) are paid for their work and can send part of their pay to their family (at least half of it being withheld and saved up for payment upon release from prison). Hours of work must not exceed 8 hours per day, and official holidays and Fridays are observed as days of rest (non-Muslims are not required to work on their religious holidays). The types of work to be assigned to detainees will be specified in the regulations.
