The Government of Nayib Bukele has transferred 2,000 prisoners accused of being gang members to the Terrorism Confinement Center, a new Salvadoran prison inaugurated in January with a capacity for 40,000 prisoners.

This center, with 23 hectares of extension, is the largest prison in America.

The transfer took place at night, amid tight security measures.

By road, the prisoners on buses have traveled the more than 100 kilometers that separated the Izalco prison from their new destination.

At all times the prisoners, who were handcuffed, had to move quickly and keep their heads down.

This new prison worries Amnesty International, which fears that it could mean the continuation of the abuses in El Salvador.

Since Bukele approved the emergency regime in March of last year after an escalation of murders, more than 64,000 people have been arrested accused of belonging to gangs.

Salvadoran humanitarian organizations and the Office for the Defense of Human Rights (PDDH) have received more than 7,900 complaints for arbitrary detentions.
