Jailed For Aiding Prisoners
prison, The Nakab, located between Egypt and Israel has booked one cat in
solitary confinement as punishment for its services and assistance to prisoners
who are serving sentences in solitary confinement. According to the Israeli
officers, the cat was aiding prisoners by moving light objects (i.e. letters,
bread etc) between the cells of prisoners.
out that the cat had been providing its services to prisoners for several
months until it was exposed recently and so the prison administration decided
to place the cat in solitary confinement – the same way they do to
the prisoners. There are dozens of cats living between the cells and rooms
of the Palestinian prisoners in several Israeli prisons and private prisons,
and apparently the cats are trying to help them.
