Human Rights Violations in the Chiapas Prison System

In 2010, the Fray Bartolomé de Las Casas Human Rights Center (henceforth Frayba) received 17 denouncements from prisoners and their family members, signed by a total of 2,142 individuals. Likewise, we have documented the testimonies of 24 relatives of prisoners who have denounced various acts and omissions that officials in charge of Penitentiaries have committed. These acts have predominantly directly affected women, boys, and girls who are subjected to cruel, inhuman, and degrading treatment upon entering the prisons to visit their family members.
