The Ezeiza prison has long been the focus of corruption cases discovered in Argentina. Inside, alongside former government officials, businessmen and trade unionists side by side.
The Federal Penitentiary Complex I, the largest prison in Argentina, was approved in 1999 and has a capacity of 2,193 men. It has six modules, an income unit and the Central Penitentiary Hospital (HPC).
Exactly the six module works under the job of the intervention system for the reduction of indices of corruption (IRIC). It was established in 2015 and aims to prevent corruption at work with a specific prison population. It has four pavilions on one floor, where there are about 60 detainees in cells for one prisoner in both cases.
Recently the place was startled by an event that caused a stir, when everything was eventually blown up by remarkable prisoners: the head of the La Plata branch of the construction union, Juan Pablo "Pata" Medina; José María Núñez Carmona, ex-partner and friend of Amado Boudou, and Fabián de Sousa, partner of Cristóbal López.
Boudou himself, who, condemned in the Ciccone case, certainly saw the fact. The former Transport Minister, Ricardo Jaime, is also staying there. And until Friday they shared the sector with José López, now a protected witness.
Cristóbal López, detained as De Sousa for the avoidance of oil fuels, is also housed in the same place. In the same prison module, but in a separate pavilion, Carlos Kirchner, a cousin of the former president, is being investigated for fraud in public works. There are also the trade unionist Omar "Caballo" Suárez and Oscar Chueco, the lawyer in the neighborhood of Lázaro Báez.
Báez, on the other hand, is housed in another pavilion, in which one of the former employees also had protagonism these weeks: Roberto Baratta. It was precisely his director, Oscar Centeno, who wrote the famous notebooks of the bribes with which module six of Ezeiza raised his population this month.
Daniel Pérez Gadín, accountant of Báez, is also in that pavilion. And there is more: through the investigation of the judge Claudio Bonadio and the public prosecutor Carlos Stornelli they were also stopped at that place Fabián Garci & # 39; a Ramon, exdirector of Promotion of Renewable Energies and Energetic Efficiency; Rafael Llorens, former Minister of Planning; Walter Fagyas, former president of Enarsa; a former adviser to the ministry, Hernán Camilo Gómez and Nelson Lazarte, a former private secretary of Baratta. Until Friday he stayed in the Martín Larraburu sector, the adviser to former cabinet manager Juan Manuel Abal Medina, but was released after paying a deposit of $ 50,000.
Despite some exchanges of words it is known that detainees can coexist peacefully under the IRIC system. They regularly receive visits from relatives and lawyers. Each prisoner has his individual "wet" cell (measuring 6×3 meters), known for having a bathroom (a toilet and a sink). It also has a bed, a table, a stool and a piece of furniture.
If they want, prisoners can request permission to have a fan in the cell that they have bought themselves. The device must pass a strict security check. The same areas share common spaces; like the dining room: there is a television, a freezer, a refrigerator, a stove, a stove, a fan and three fixed lines. They also have a table with stools with bolts on the floor. The module has a gym divided by the
four pavilions and a garden where all detainees of the sector can work voluntarily.
Every day at 7 o'clock in the morning there is a full count of the prisoners and then the cells are left open and until the 22 prisoners of the same pavilion can be crossed in the common areas and participate in different activities. The garden is always active for those who want to participate and they can also do different sports such as football or volleyball. As part of the routine, the prisoners take part in daily walks and other physical exercises.
There are also workshops and guitar lessons, table tennis or table tennis. In the summer, when the education section goes into recess, other options are added. For example, the National Institute for Cinema and Audiovisual Arts (Incaa) shows films and raises discussions about cinema.
At 14 hours the SPF distributes lunch meat, although the prisoners can also cook their own food in the common room. The most popular menu's in module six are salads, baked potatoes, milanese juice, noodles and chicken. The favorite dessert is rice pudding. Some interns maintain a low sodium diet with vegetables and apple desserts. Since it happens throughout the prison, knives and other cutting elements have to be returned at night when they are no longer needed for culinary tasks.
At a distance from the prison of Ezeiza, another prison saw his daily routine change considerably with permission from a sector for prisoners "IRIC". It is the prison of Marcos Paz, where the former Minister of Planning, Julio De Vido, shares a pavilion; his brother-in-law, Claudio Minicelli and the accountant of the Kirchners, Víctor Manzanares. Recently, another pavilion entered a number of the businessmen held by the bribes of bribes: Gerardo Ferreyra and Jorge Neira, of Electroingeniería; Claudio Glazman, real estate entrepreneur; Armando Loson, from Albanesi; Carlos Mundin, of BTU and the former president of the Argentinian building and member of the Esuco company, Carlos Wagner.
