BRUSSELS – In the prison of Saint-Gilles, tensions are rising since a few weeks. Yesterday, a prisoner who was brought before the internal disciplinary court attacked the five prison guards who were accompanying him. All five of them got wounded and had to be brought to the hospital. The prisoner, a trained kick-boxer, was transferred to the prison of Nivelles and put in isolation. The prison guard unions blame the over-population of the prison to be at the source of the tensions (almost 900 prisoners whereas officially, there’s place for 600).
