Paraguayan prisoners riot for more sex

June 23rd, 2008 - 5:24 pm ICT by ANI  

London, June 23 (ANI): Inmates at a prison in Paraguay have detained the director of the prison and several other administration staff to meet an unusual demand of having more sex in prison.

The prisoners rioted demanding more time to have sex with their wives and girlfriends and put an end to ill treatment by prison guards, reports the Telegraph.

Though Paraguayan prisons allow conjugal visits during the day, the law in Esperanza clashes with the prisoners’ working hours, when they run small businesses such as clothing factories.

The inmates said that they had complained that work was getting in the way of pleasure, but were not heard, so they decided to turn rebellious.

However, Derlis Osorio, the Paraguayan justice minister, said the riot ended after a tense, four-hour stand-off and there were no deaths or injuries.

The inmates demands were met and the officials declared that the prisoners would be allowed more conjugal visits during the day, outside working hours.

The officials also assured to improve the way guards treated inmates, to investigate claims of abuse and to end the regime of strip searches of visitors. (ANI)
