Haiti - FLASH : Explosive situation among the detainees of the Commissariat of Petit-Goâve
This Friday morning, the situation of 224 prisoners incarcerated in extremely difficult conditions, in two cells of the Commissariat of Petit-Goâve (built to accommodate 60 prisoners), deteriorated further. Angry, they demand food "We are hungry, this morning we were given something of poor quality that we refused to eat," said detainees at the microphone of Radio Préférence.

In an atmosphere of revolt, hungry prisoners are claiming for food, as the Commissariat does not seem to be able to feed them enough because of an insufficient food supply. The angry prisoners seem ready for anything and threaten "If we are not given food, we will set fire."

The detainees in the cells, are very agitated and make a lot of noise while the police seem overwhelmed by events and talk about strengthening the surveillance and the number of police officers tonight...

Moreover, it should be noted that in these two cells whose overpopulation is inhuman, some prisoners are seriously ill and should be hospitalized while others carry contagious diseases including AIDS.
