People have been interested in learning more about jail life and food since hearing that Najib had been sentenced to prison.

According to China Press, there are 8 different colours prevalent in Malaysian jails, and each one stands for a different “stage” of the inmates’ incarceration.

  • Orange 

The orange coloured uniforms are for suspects who were detained by the police and are about to go for their trial/hearings.

  • Red

For those who are sentenced to prison for 6 months and above, they will be wearing red for the first 3 months of their sentence. After 3 months of wearing red and attending PPI courses, they will then change into other colours, depending on their prison time.

  • Green

After three months of wearing red, the convicts will switch to green for the following four to eighteen months. Other than that, they will have classes in the PPI and other therapeutic communities set for their second phase.

  • Blue

If a prisoner is sentenced to 18 months and above or even for life, they will then change into a blue uniform. This would also represent that they’ve completed their PPI courses and are allowed to enroll in other courses that are offered in the prison.

Neon green uniforms are for prisoners who are about to be released from prison. Those who are in this uniform are allowed to work outside of the prison with supervision. Usually, prisoners who are wearing the neon green uniform will be released within 3 months.

Lime Green

  • Red and White

Those who have been given the death penalty wear red and white uniforms. The red and white clothing will also be given to those who are requesting a reduction in their criminal sentence, particularly from a death sentence to life in prison.
