On the Floor

At least 9 prisoners sleep on the floor in detachment 3 of the provincial prison of Canaletas in Ciego de Avila, according to this reporter. Multiple interns assure us that this phenomenon is common in this jail and in the majority of the detachments there are many prisoners who spend the night on the floor. In galleys 41 and 42 of detachment 3 there are 8 out of 100 convicts that do not have beds. It’s also important to note that in the mentioned detachment there is capacity for 36 men in 12 beds which hold 3 tiers, in a space measuring less than 12 meters in length by 5 in width, including the baths and tubs for showering, cleaning, and having to do all the physical necessities. Canaleta has capacity for 1,200 interns.
