Sorry if some of it reads retarded, it was put through google translator;
Man with leg dissected tortured to death , sex in collective environment and prisoners with mental illness mixed with other inmates . And the conclusion : the government of Maranhão has been
"unable" to curb the violence .
The scenario of lawlessness in the prison complex in São Luís was described in a report of the Judge Douglas Martins , CNJ ( National Council of Justice ) , after the site visit on the 20th.
The government has confirmed 59 deaths this year. In the last rebellion on December 17 , three detainees were beheaded .
The complex , designed for 1,700 men , 2,500 houses , according to the CNJ .
The document was delivered on Friday (27) to the Minister of the Supreme Court Joaquim Barbosa, who chairs the board . The report reproduces the statement made to the Minister by the OAS (Organization of American States) that the Brazilian government needs to act to ensure the integrity of prisoners in Maranhão .
A shocking scene is quoted in the report : a video , which , according to Martins , was sent by the the prison guards' union , with the record of the slow death of a detainee in Rhinestones .
The video is "the most barbarous scene I've ever seen" said Folha Martins , experienced judge on visits to prisons throughout the country.
The image shows a prisoner still alive with the skin of the leg dissected . Torture exposes muscle, tendons and bones .
from the report:
"The units are overcrowded and can not maintain the physical integrity of the prisoners".
" Prisoners are forced to choose new gang when entering the units. "
The judge mentions that those responsible for security are no longer able to handle the inmates. in order to enter, you must have the endorsement of gang leaders .
Since there are no cells in the CDP ( center for pre-trial detainees ) and the two prisons (for those already sentenced ) , all freely circulate . The model for the CNJ , " undermines the guarantee of minimum security inmates without the command post ."
The free movement within the compound , says the document, "facilitates the sexual abuse against fellow prisoners without the command post ."
Martins also argues that the government of Maranhão "has been unable to determine with adequate precision , all deviations for abuse of authority , torture , other forms of violence and corruption committed by public officials."
