The General Penitentiary and Correctional Services Agency (DGSPC) announced on 5 February 2024 the dismantling of Starlink satellite dishes at the La Victoria Jail. The actions follow after detainees admitted to committing crimes contracted by jail inmates.

The DGSPC reports that on Sunday, 4 February 2024 DGSPC inspectors cracked down on the internet network that prisoners operated in the La Victoria Jail.

This begs the question of how many people were paid off for this to happen to begin with! It boggles the mind, 12 satellite dishes………
They were easily better connected than any home and probably most businesses.

each and every one of them generated easily 100,000 RD$ a month by sharing the password hourly.

La Victoria used to and may still allow conjugal visits. For the men with no one to see local cueros were provided. This from an old friend that spent a short time there.............He was eventually exonerated...........

This has been an open secret for years and there have been dozens of videos posted online about how prisoners live in the penal system down here.

I knew about the lifestyles inside, the women, the food, cellphones, drugs, etc., but putting 12 satellite dishes in…. Not something I ever thought of. It’s so blatant.

Yes but believe me that you do not want to spend one day there. This place is hell on earth. Been there several times on business.

I think it was Ramoncito from the Baninter scandal that in an interview said that he used to go to the casino when in Najayo. It wasn't that he went as a prisoner to any of the casinos in the capital, but that there is a casino in the jail.

I can only imagine when this news reached SpaceX headquarters. Even Elon Musk must know about this. It must be a global first. lol
