Dakar, June 19 (APS) – The prison administration wanted to provide details on the incident that occurred on Wednesday at 9 a.m. after the residents of room 8 of the Liberté 6 penal camp refused to submit to the roll call, which remains a mandatory security measure, considering that the incident was quickly brought under control by the personnel on duty.

In a press release from the communications service of the general directorate of the prison administration sent to the APS, she reassures the Senegalese population and particularly the parents of prisoners at the Liberté 6 penal camp.

The same source estimates “that no injuries have been reported, much less a loss of human life”.

The prison administration wishes to clarify that this is an “incident and not a mutiny” as relayed in the media and social networks where the images and videos coming from inside this penitentiary establishment , fraudulently filmed by detainees were shared.

“These images and videos (…) result from an incident that occurred after the residents refused to submit to the roll call (…) They subsequently deliberately set fire to their sleeping belongings,” explained the communications service.

The prison administration reassures that an investigation will be opened to find out the origin of the phones which filmed and shared these scenes of violence

It calls on prisoners and public opinion to respect the security provisions which govern the operation of penitentiary establishments.
