El Salvador’s Pres. Nayib Bukele Touts “Megaprison” with Shocking Images of Shackled Detainees
HAVANA TIMES – In El Salvador, human rights advocates are condemning the transfer of some 2,000 suspected gang members to a newly opened megaprison as part of an ongoing crackdown by President Nayib Bukele. Over the weekend, Bukele shared images of prisoners wearing nothing but white shorts being rushed into the prison, then sitting in rows with their heads down.
The so-called terrorism confinement center has a capacity of 40,000 and is now considered to be the largest prison in the Americas. Bukele’s government has been enforcing a state of exception since last March, suspending several constitutional protections and leading to the arbitrary arrest of an estimated 64,000 people — many without any ties to gangs or access to due process. Human rights groups say at least 80 people have died in police custody.

I am in Haiti living in Port au Prince … over there the general population is more or less like those salvadorian criminals while the terrorists gang are free and roaming every where killing kidnaping raping day and night thanks to our human rights advocates who protect there rights …. Its a great pleasure for me to see how president Bukele take care of those bastards .
