Prisoners in revolt in the prison of Santa Bona in Treviso. Two hours of tension Friday morning in the penitentiary of Treviso. A group of inmates in the pre-trial section gave life to a riot leading to a state of high emergency. Prison guards were called in from their time off and about 20 prisoners have been charged.
Violent protests yesterday against overcrowding in the prison by prisoners held in Treviso, with throwing and exploding camping gas canisters. One more protest after those during the week in Agrigento, for lack of hot water, and in Santa Maria Maggiore in Venice, also for overcrowding, banging on the bars and throwing gas canisters. This week there was also one suicide and three attempted suicides prevented in extremis by guards in Trapani, Brindisi and Florence.
