(ANSA) – BOLOGNA, OCTOBER 27 – First arrest in Italy, in the Ferrara prison, for an inmate found in possession of a mini-cell phone, a six-centimeter ‘L8Star’ device. It is an Albanian, considered a person with significant criminal depth in drug trafficking, caught red-handed by the prison police. The operation was coordinated by the DDA (prosecutor Giuseppe Amato and prosecutor Roberto Ceroni) and took place in collaboration with the mobile team of Bologna and with the department of the Ferrara penitentiary.
The phone was in the ‘Prison’ section, reserved for those sentenced to life imprisonment or with high sentences. The arrest of the owner, explains a note from the Public Prosecutor’s Office of Bologna, is the first case after the introduction of article 391 of the criminal code, which punishes undue access to devices suitable for communication by inmates.
“That of telephones – says the Prosecutor led by Amato – is increasingly becoming a thriving illicit market in prison, as the availability of a mobile phone during the period of detention, in addition to allowing the continuation of criminal intentions and objectives, allows the owner to exercise supremacy in prison relations and to maintain continuous contact with the external criminal environment to issue criminal orders to be carried out outside the prison facility “.
