Living hell the prisoners of santo tomas based on the diaries of isla corfield - Living Hell: The Prisoners of Santo Tomas by Celia Lucas



Bang Kwang Prison, jokingly known as the “Bangkok Hilton,” is a severely overcrowded — and underfunded — maximum-security facility that houses both local and foreign prisoners. It has a reputation worldwide for being one of the very worst prisons due to extraordinarily unfair sentencing and inmate abuse.

Built in the 1930s, the prison was originally supposed to hold no more than 3,500 inmates, but now houses more than 8,000, with most serving sentences of at least 25 years. Around 10 percent of those prisoners are on death row, and each death row inmate has shackles welded to their legs.

Only one meal — a bowl of rice and soup — is served each day; other food must be purchased through the canteen, although the poor prisoners have to work for the wealthier prisoners in order to afford the canteen’s goods. In the case of Angela Carnegie (an American who spent nine years in Bang Kwang for drug smuggling), the only meal offered to her was usually infested with maggots.

Durban - Two Kokstad C-Max prisoners, who were sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder of a Tongaat couple, have complained about the “cruel, inhumane and degrading” treatment they were receiving.

Lucky Njoko, 36, and Senzo Mduli, 25, brought an application to the Pietermaritzburg High Court on Monday to be transferred back to Westville Medium B Prison or a facility where their next of kin had reasonable access to them.

They also want the privileges they had at Westville restored, which included being allowed visitors and calls from family members.

Liao Chew Hat, 52, had so much power over them that the women - one in her 40s and the other in her 30s - endured his sexual and violent abuse for years.

Liao, who was also a cabby and ran several cooked-food stalls, once slapped one of the women, forcibly stripped her naked, and ordered her to get out of her room and have sex with the workers at the hostel where his coffee-shop employees stayed.

When she tried to avoid him, he sent her 173 threatening SMSes over four days, went to her house to look for her, and kicked at her bedroom door.
