Thirty inmates in a prison in the Belgian Itter have Saturday night refused to their cell to return. The prisoners wanted their discontent express themselves about the cuts to the prisons where they are rejected.

The police came to the return to the cells to accompany. And after that turned the rest back. The prisoners had their walk sit when they are not wanted.

According to trade unions lead the cuts of the federal government to a shortage of prison staff. That, in turn, has consequences for the daily life of the inmates, who, for example, is less able to exercise or visit the gym.

The trade union movement supports the action of the prisoners, however, are not. “There are rules to respect, also in the prison. If we have such a riot would accept, then we would open the door to everything.”
