Israeli dies of COVID-19 in Peru prison where he was held for drug trafficking

Description (Dublin Core)

This prison looks like a terrible place to serve a sentence, and even worse during a pandemic. The article discusses an Israeli inmate who died from Coronavirus while imprisoned in Lima, Peru. Sure, he was in jail for 20 years for trafficking cocaine, but it raises larger issues about the dire inequities and lack of funding present in Peruvian jails. Allegedly the woman, Hodaya Monsonego was mentally impaired, suggesting that perhaps she should have been repatriated to her family.
