Prison Repression in Spain

Prison Repression In Spain

The prison Meco is 30 kilometers from Madrid. It is a maximum security super prison where torture is most of ten practiced against the prisoners. Currently they have stopped beating prisoners a little but there is all kinds of problems, such as censorship of mail, communication with friends and even family members. All of this has been complained of to the Judge for Prison Vigilance but the judge always, except for a rare occasion or tow, rules in favor of the prison directors, that is how "justice" functions here in Spain.

All of this is being done with the governments consent.
