Prison of Sulmona, Nardella (Uil Pa penitentiary police): “The minister transfers more prisoners and invests more money in men and logistics”

SULMONA- We receive and publish: “There would be a million things to say about the all-Italian disaster and which concerns the world of prisons in general and Sulmona in particular if we refer to the penitentiaries of Aquila.
However, I will limit myself to listing those which, if dealt with properly, would at least float a boat that is leaking on all sides, such as the transfer, for example, of prisoners (starting with those who attacked colleagues months ago and who still found in the same location) more than the regulatory capacity; greater investment in personnel both of the Penitentiary Police and that belonging to the central functions sector and greater funds for logistics could, if implemented, certainly allow oxygen to be embarked on the asphyxiated rights of all the players in the field “. This is how Mauro Nardella, territorial secretary general of the UIL PA Penitentiary Police of the Province of L’Aquila begins, who continues: “The ECHR imposes sanctions on Italy, as in the case of the Torreggiani sentence, because it does not believe that the rule of law in prisons is exercised according to the schemes represented by international conventions?
I wonder why the ECHR itself does not condemn Italy also for the state of abandonment in which the national penitentiaries, including Sulmona, have been left, given that it too would represent torture given that everyone, both prisoners and staff working there, lose out ?
In Sulmona we live in a state of general chaos due, as mentioned, to prisoners who attack policemen and are not transferred; of prisoners who ask to be sent elsewhere because they do not find themselves in that school and/or university context for which the Sulmonese prison had been advertised and their wish is not fulfilled; due to the fact that the DAP continues to send psychopathic subjects (the last one yesterday) even though the Peligno prison does not have a structure capable of satisfying their need for treatment and for this reason unprepared to manage them.
What can we say about the issue concerning personnel, if not bad if we refer to their disregarded rights (there are people with more than 200 days of overdue leave), or the number of them present and lacking in every order and degree?
What can we say of the percolating logistics that sees the remaining structure in need of restructuring as well as adaptation to the wishes of the new regulation implementing the penitentiary order act as a counterpart to a new pavilion?
Peeling walls, moldy showers, floors without tiles and for this reason poorly sanitizable; lack as required by the regulation of hot water and showers in the rooms.
These just listed are just some of the things that should be addressed but it is not possible to understand why they are not processed.
We were assured that they would proceed to open the new pavilion (which fortunately is still closed) by moving the inmates from one department to another in order to proceed with the renovation work but to date nothing is known for certainties in this regard.
We were promised that they would refurbish the complex where the collaborators of justice are located in a more suitable and safe garrison for videoconferencing (useful for carrying out remote trial hearings) but nothing is known about its implementability.
Promises, promises, promises… only to find ourselves with a handful of flies and many more problems in hand. Let Minister Nordio, who we know is a serious, sincere and sincere person, come and visit us in Sulmona. Let him come and listen to what we have to say about the policy adopted by one of his departments and, above all, come and support us physically and psychologically because we still don’t know when we will still be able to resist. Minister… we are waiting for you!”.
