Jamouilx - Tekim killed by prison guards

JAMIOULX – The prisoner Tekim was beaten to death by guards who were transporting him from a normal cell to the punishment cell. A juridical investigation was started; the prosecutor said that the man died because of serious wounds inflicted by the guards, but that the guards “are entitled to use violence when necessary”.

Family and friends gathered in front of the prison and were welcomed by thirty riot cops with full gear. Inside the prison, prisoners occupied the yard to protest, but returned to their cells when the anti riot police came.

The day after the murder, the guards of the prison went on strike. The prison is therefore under control of the Federal Police.
