According to comprehensive foreign media reports, the prisoners suffered such abuse because they protested that the prison did not provide them with adequate food and water, and requested that their families be allowed to visit with medicines. The guards forced the prisoners into the courtyard, first spraying water on them with pipes, and then putting the cockfighting on them, allowing the cockfighting to leave bites and scratches on the prisoners.
In the process of abuse, many prisoners were slapped by prison guards with boards. The guards held a sarcastic attitude towards the scene. When some prisoners raised their heads, they would slam them on the head with boards, and the torture lasted for up to two hours.

At present, prison guard Diaz and two prison guards have been disciplined for abuse of power and persecution of prisoners human rights.
