Prosecutors eye contract corruption at massacre jail

Brazilian prosecutors on Thursday demanded a multi-million dollar private prison contract in Amazonas state be axed due to signs of corruption as the government blamed mismanagement for the country’s bloodiest prison massacre in decades. Amazonas’ accounting court prosecutor, Carlos Almeida, said he found signs of payment irregularities in a contract the state signed with the Pamas consortium to manage all its prisons, including the Anisio Jobim penitentiary where 56 inmates died in an uprising this week. The Pamas consortium received about 400 million reais (US$125 million) in 2016 to co-manage Amazonas’ prisons, he said.
