Seven prisoners escaped from the Beccaria juvenile prison in Milan


This was announced by the Uilpa union: "They would have taken advantage of the work in progress" (ANSA)

"Seven inmates escaped in the afternoon from the courtyard of the 'Cesare Beccaria' penal institution for minors in Milan. The fugitives allegedly took advantage of the work in progress, which has been going on for some time, to break through the fence and then climb over the wall The searches by the Prison Police and the other forces of order began immediately, without success for now".

This was reported in a note by Gennarino De Fazio, general secretary of the Uilpa Penitentiary Police.

   In juvenile institutions, for reasons also connected to penitentiary overcrowding in prisons, the age of the prisoners - as De Fazio recalls - "can reach up to 25 years".

"Many of the problems affecting prisons - underlines the general secretary of Uilpa - are also found in penal institutions for minors. In particular, there is a dizzying increase in cases of aggression against operators, riots and, as in this case, This is evidently attributable to a series of factors", including precisely "the raising of the age limit".

   "For some time - he continues - we have been repeating that the criminal enforcement system needs to be rethought and that the Department of Juvenile and Community Justice and the Department of Penitentiary Administration need to be reorganized and strengthened".

"We hope - concludes De Fazio - to soon be able to meet with the Minister of Justice and the Deputy Undersecretaries for the search for a reform path and concrete solutions that go beyond mere proclamations".
