Agents of the Civil Guard have arrested this Wednesday the deputy director of the Villena prison (Alicante) for an alleged crime of false reporting. The woman denounced an alleged attack by five hooded men who allegedly tried to intimidate her after a prisoner’s complaint for the attack by prison officials.
The investigation of the armed institute has concluded that the aggression never existed and they accuse it of false report and simulation of crime, according to the newspaper Lift-EMV. The official has been released with the obligation to appear in the Benidorm court that investigates the facts.
The woman linked the alleged assault by five hooded men at the door of her home with an internal investigation in the prison into the actions of two officials in the reduction of a prisoner who was part of the care program for inmates with mental illness. After two months of investigation, the Civil Guard has concluded that the complaint was fabricated.
According to the account of the deputy director of the Villena prison, the alleged attack was related to the incident with the prisoner, for which Penitentiary Institutions opened an internal investigation. The woman reported having been attacked on the eve of her statement for these events and also claimed that her mobile phone had been stolen from the prison.
The woman was guarding the images from the video surveillance camera that captured the attack on the prisoner. Penitentiary Institutions reported to the court both the incident with the inmate and the alleged assault that the deputy director of the prison claimed to have suffered. In addition, the official had also denounced having received threatening messages on her mobile phone.
The general secretary of Penitentiary Institutions, Ángel Luis Ortiz, traveled to the Villena prison to participate in a rally in support of the official. The alleged attack on the official, now being investigated for a false complaint, caused consternation in the prison environment and several unions condemned the events. Ortiz sympathized with the alleged victim, whom he defined as “an upright professional.”
