LANTIN - A few weeks ago, prisoners of Lantin rebelled and destroyed the new isolation module. The module was completely destroyed and is now closed. All prisoners were transferred to the other isolation module in the prison of Bruges. The two isolation modules (in Lantin & Bruges) were built almost two years ago as a reaction to the several escapes and riots in the Belgian prisons, to isolate those who revolt. Already in April 2009, the isolation module of Bruges was temporarily closed after a serious uprising. Prison authorities, unions of guards and press kept silent about this revolt. Only three weeks later, the news filtered through the walls.
