Inside the world's most secure prisons from which it's IMPOSSIBLE to escape
They are words which send a shiver down the spines of the world’s most hardened criminals: Alcatraz, Belmarsh, and the ‘Supermax’.
A new name has now been added to the list: CECOT, or Tecoluca.
On Wednesday Bukele – who has won praise by some for his merciless line on gangs, and been criticized by others for his ruthless approach – announced that a second wave of inmates had been transferred to CECOT. The first 2,000 arrived on February 24.
‘Today, in a new operation, we moved the second group of 2,000 gang members to the Terrorism Confinement Center (Centro de Confinamiento del Terrorismo – CECOT),’ he tweeted.
‘This means that there are now 4,000 gang members living inside the most criticized prison in the world.’
Here, DailyMail.com takes a look inside CECOT, and see how it ranks among the impenetrable prisons around the world.
