A year has passed since the bloodiest gang battle in Columbian history raged through the Buedeventura penitentiary resulting in numerous deaths of gang members and penitentiary staff who were caught up in the violence.
Governor Nino Juan who was interviewed days before the bloody riots, admitted that mistakes had previously been made and the prison system had collapsed resulting in the lockdown that fuelled the riot.
Nino Juan gave a public statement just after his debrief and quoted 'Most of the prison staff are still unaccounted for and what's even worse in the confusion I forgot my beloved gold fish!... Cabrón!'.
To make matters worse the gang members from the Los Rojas and Los Cuervos who survived have combined forces and still have control of the prison. Buedventura penitentiary was upgraded 10 years ago to hold the most violent gang members and is known to be the most fortified prison in Columbia and due to this all recent attempts to retake the prison by local Police have failed resulting in more bloodshed.
The Buedeventura government where quick to cut off all services to the prison in the hope that this would force the prisoners to eventually give up but somehow they are still managing to survive and get supplies which are believed to be coming in from an underground duct system that the government cannot locate. Furthermore we believe that this mystery duct system is allowing them to conduct more illegal activities including drug and weapon manufacturing and distribution directly from inside the prison.
Information has leaked and according to BCN the Columbian government is 'considering' sending in military Special Forces in an attempt to close this increasing nightmare down.
BCN has contacted the Government to confirm if military intervention was planned? However the government has declined to answer any questions regarding the Buedeventura Penitentiary and it's in-mates.
