Nine prisoners suspected of leading a wave of attacks in Rio Grande do Norte this week were transferred to federal penitentiaries on Friday night (17). The detainees were taken from the Prison Rogério Coutinho, located in the Alcaçuz Complex, to the Federal Penitentiary System (SPF).
According to the National Secretariat for Penal Policies (Senappen), the transfer was at the request of the Public Ministry of the State of Rio Grande do Norte and the local government and authorized by the Judge of the Penal Execution Rod.
The operation was supported by the criminal police officers who work at the State Department of Penitentiary Administration in RN. With the new transfer, there are already 10 state custodians included in federal penitentiaries since the beginning of the crisis in the state.
The detainees are accused of leading crimes such as homicides and drug trafficking, in addition to being involved in escape plans and attacks on public and private property in Rio Grande do Norte.
Transferred prisoners can be held in any of the five federal units located in: Catanduvas (PR), Campo Grande (MS), Mossoró (RN), Porto Velho (RO) and Brasília (DF).
According to Senappen, prisoners will be isolated in individual cells, with monitored visits and only by parlor and with strict security procedures.
