Belgium: Alexandre Varga “suicided” in prison after escape attempt

ANDENNEA – Friday evening, Alexandre Varga took out a knife and took a prison guard hostage in the prison of Andenne. He forced the other guards to open the prison doors. When Varga was outside, the guard taken hostage managed to escape, supported by other guards who followed Varga, he started to run but was soon caught.

A day later, after they put Varga in isolation and after the guards announced that they were going on a 48 hour strike against “prisoner’s violence”, Varga was suicided in the prison.  They say he hanged himself. Every death of a prisoner is a State murder.

Alexandre Varga was sentenced to 18 years for a number of robberies, one against a supermarket and others against security vans. In 2008 he appeared before the court in an orange shirt with “GUANTANA-MONS” written on it to denounce the violence committed by the screws against psychiatric prisoners in the prison of Mons.
