Prison wardens torment illegal aliens
May 29, 2008 Leave a Comment
In a report broadcast on Tuesday evening on the TV current affairs programme NOVA, a Dutch prison warden revealed that illegal aliens are often abused and tormented by guards. She says illegal aliens are sometimes put in isolation cells for no reason at all and they are often the victims of excessive violence.
The whistleblower works for a private security firm which provides wardens for the Justice Ministry. The woman says many wardens go to work hoping they can hit someone or intimidate a prisoner.
NOVA says her story has been verified by three other wardens and 50 former prisoners. MPs have called for an investigation.
