Chile: Urgent! Anarchist Prisoner Tamara Sol Transferred to the Maximum Security Section in Santiago


26.01.18: On January 25th, 2018, the comrade Tamara Sol was transferred once again, this time from the prison colony of Rancagua to the Maximum Security Section in Santiago. The reason for the transfer is due to her attempted escape from Valpraiso Prison.

The maximum security section is inside the High Security Unit (CAS) a punishment division inside a prison for men, with a strict disciplinary regime. This section began receiving women prisoners with the imprisonment of Marcela Mardones in June of 2017. Marcela is linked to the FPMR* and the muder of Jaime Guzmán**.

Making a mockery of their own regulations, the State and the prison administrators moved Tamara Sol to a men’s prison despite it being specifically forbidden by their own rules and standards. The Prison State does not hesitate to increase punishments, to make execeptions to their own rules and to seek out the worst and the most hostile conditions of confinement.
