Prisons: riots in Bergamo, officer injured with a razor blade

(ANSA) – BERGAMO, June 20 – Unrest was recorded yesterday evening in two sections of the Bergamo prison. A prison police officer was reportedly injured with a razor blade and taken to hospital.

“One month after our last complaint – underlines Toni Sole, general secretary of Fns Cisl of Bergamo -, we still have to deal with an increasingly less tolerable situation.

The high presence of inmates, with peaks of over 152% compared to the tolerable capacity, and a dramatically underpowered staff of prison policemen (over 20% fewer units) are the dramatic combination of factors that outline the situation in which it finds itself the prison in Bergamo and which for years have been the subject of reports by our union “.
