Tenerife prison intern commits suicide

On Tuesday, a 37-year-old man was found dead in his cell in the Tenerife II prison


According to first indications, the man took his own life with an overdose of heroin. The man was staying in a wing that mainly accommodates repeat offenders. This was the second death this month inside the prison walls. Just last week, another inmate killed himself. 
The APFP prison wardens' professional association provincial delegate, Rafael Paniza, complained that there are far too few staff to supervise the prisoners properly. There is also a lack of training, equipment and control mechanisms to prevent the introduction of prohibited substance
