"Do you see the conditions I'm living in? That insipid Senator put me in here! She deserves to die for leaving me to rot in this squalor!"
Ziro Desilijic Tiure, on Padmé Amidala[src]

The Republic Judiciary Central Detention Center was a high-security Galactic Republic prison on Coruscant during the Clone Wars.

History[edit | edit source]

"We've both spent time in a Coruscant prison, so planning their jailbreak should be easy."
Boba Fett, to Bossk[src]

The holding cells and guard station within the detention center

During the Clone Wars, the prison was guarded by clone shock troopers of the Coruscant Guard.[3]

Among its prisoners was Ziro Desilijic Tiure. He was freed from the prison by the IG-86 sentinel droid HELIOS-3D during a hostage crisis involving several senators trapped inside the East Wing of the Republic Executive Building.[1][2]

After being captured by Jedi Master Plo Koon and Padawan Ahsoka Tano, Boba Fett and Bossk were brought to the RJC Detention Center for their part in the destruction of the Republic Venator-class Star Destroyer Endurance, along with their attempted assassination of Mace Windu and Anakin Skywalker and murder of numerous clone troopers.[4]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Concept art of the Republic prison

The prison's design bears strong resemblance to Panopticon, a conception of a round prison with cells being exposed towards the center, thus providing the guards a possibility of discretely observing every inmate at the same time from that central point - a tower. Although, as the RJCDC prisoners were perfectly aware they have been watched - the clone troopers held guard at the platform of the central tower - the idea of Panopticon was not wholly fulfilled in that prison.
