Similar to what happened last August, the Funchal Prison in Cancela is once again receiving prisoners from mainland prisons.

The 35 inmates, all male, have already arrived at Madeira Cristiano Ronaldo International Airport, where they were awaited by dozens of PSP agents and prison guards.

According to DIÁRIO NOTÍCIAS, one of the reasons that motivated this transfer was the fact that these prisoners did not have family visits in the continental territory.

Prisoners are serving a variety of sentences, including murder, theft, drug trafficking, etc.
