16 April 2020 demesure

from a summary of the cooperativa Spanish, 15 April 2020

A mutiny broke out on April 15 in the prison of La Gonzalina, in Rancagua (O’Higgins region).
Faced with the restriction of visiting rooms  (But relatives can still bring food) and the measures of “social distancing” imposed with these which were the pretext for a search, a prisoner of module 52 attacked the shift manager, then all 126 prisoners joined in, torching part of the wing. Three screws were wounded (stabbed, punched, kicked) then taken to hospital, and six prisoners were accused of being the “ringleaders”.
