Not safe "inside"

The Spanish National Police have broken up a prison mafia based in the Fontcalent jail in Alicante which was demanding money from prisoners and their families under the threat of death.

Reports in online newspaper "20 minutos" indicate the criminal gang obtained several thousand Euros in this way, and that 14 people made up the group, three of whom are prisoners themselves in Fontcalent, another a prisoner in the Valdemoro jail in Madrid, and with the rest working outside. The family of a businessman being held prisoner in the jail is reported to have paid several thousand Euro in the case.
