The alert was given at 1:40 a.m. by guards, after a detainee called them to announce a fight in a cell, according to a press release from the regional union of the Ufap-Unsa union. The guards found the death of an inmate,

"tied up and bathed in a pool of blood"

, according to the union. The detainee, whose autopsy will take place in the coming days, was imprisoned for

"aggravated theft and releasable in June",

according to the prosecutor who indicated

"not knowing the reasons for the homicide".

"The detainee was placed in the so-called differentiated section, where we place detainees who do not manage to integrate among the other detainees, who need protection or on the contrary who are aggressive"

, explained to AFP Jean-Jacques Racamy, of the Ufap-Unsa union, who denounces the

"almost unmanageable preposterous management"

of this district, warning of the insecurity for the supervisor

"dropped into the pasture, alone in this jumble, a pressure cooker which explodes so repetitive”.

“We asked for a psychological cell for the staff but also for the detainees who are repeatedly confronted with these facts”

, further specified Jean-Jacques Racamy who deplores the attacks

“of detainees as well as staff”.

According to the director of the penitentiary center, Jean-Pierre Charpentier-Tity,

"this district is not in a situation of prison overcrowding, and within the establishment violence has dropped by around 20%".
