Inmate Killed at Maximum-Security Prison in Bolivia

LA PAZ – A 29-year-old inmate was murdered at Bolivia’s maximum-security Chonchocoro prison, marking the third killing at the facility in just over three months, a police spokesman said.

Felix Braulio Flores’s body was found early Tuesday bearing several stab wounds, FELCC law enforcement agency director Col. Humberto Echalar said.

Alberto Abaroa Rubin de Celis, a 43-year-old inmate serving a 30-year sentence for killing four police officers, was killed in mid-November.

An unidentified inmate died at the maximum-security Chonchocoro prison in late October.

A total of 19 inmates have been killed at Chonchocoro since it opened in 1992.

The prison, located in the Bolivian highlands at an altitude of 4,000 meters (13,115 feet), houses, among others, murderers, terrorists and soldiers convicted of crimes committed during the Andean nation’s military dictatorships.

Former dictator Gen. Luis Garcia Meza, who headed a brutal 1980-1981 dictatorship, and his interior minister, Luis Arce Gomez, are serving 30-year sentences at Chonchocoro.

An estimated 1,000 people were killed by the Bolivian army and security forces during the 13 months that Garcia Meza’s regime was in power, with Arce Gomez serving as the dictatorship’s chief repressor. EFE
