The spokesperson for the group, Juan Carlos Sanchez, has said that this is due to cutbacks in prisons throughout Spain, and that the women who used to be paid to clean the prison inside and out, are now only doing the outside, while 10 inmates were chosen to clean the officers where the prison guards work.
However, he also said that they were aware that this caused a “serious safety problem.”
