Prisoner Attempts Suicide

Prisoner Attempts Suicide

March 16

Yesterday morning, around 4am, Cemal Cengizhan and three other inmates of the TRNC central prison were discovered be in possession of drugs (bonsai).

Soon after which discovery, Cengizhan attempted to commit suicide by cutting his wrists. He was rushed to Nicosia state hospital where he received treatment and was returned to prison. Meanwhile a team from the narcotics unit along with sniffer dogs combed the prison looking for drugs. However none were found. The obvious question is, how were these inmates supplied with drugs in the prison?

Mr Cengizhan has served two out of five years in prison for a string of burglaries in Famagusta and Kyrenia.
