The trial is set for January 6. It will be interesting to see the outcome.
I've read everything I can find on Peru's two major prisons, one being where Joran is kept for now, and to label them as hell holes is being to be to kind.

To speak of they don't have any staff, the prisoners themselves run the place.

From Wikipedia

Quote:
Because of understaffing, guards leave the internal operation of large prisons, including the management of commerce, to taitas, the bosses among the inmates.


Since 2000, the International Red Cross has been working with Peruvian authorities to help control the widespread transmission of tuberculosis and HIV among the overcrowded prison population.

But Joran's stay will be short, once he is released into the general population he'll be dead in 24 hours.


The guards guard the perimeter for escapes and once inside the walls the running of the entire place is left up to inmates. Inmate committees decide who eats, what they eat and where they sleep. Some inmates are not fed and their sleeping facilities are designated the garbage dump where they can search for food among scraps left over.

Many countries have sorry prison systems ... my son has to travel out of the US for his work ... I always tell him to be very very careful wherever he goes.

Miguel Castro Castro prison, from what I have read only has a 100 guards and apparently the majority must take bribes.

Our own prison systems are the Ritz compared to other countries.
