The violence between inmates required the mobilization of the security forces.

The serious crisis that the penitentiary system is going through in Ecuador caused important changes in the responsible institutions of that country.

President Guillermo Lasso accepted on Monday the resignation of the general director of the National Service for Comprehensive Attention to Adults Deprived of Liberty (SNAI), Bolívar Garzón, as well as the head of the Joint Command of the Armed Forces, Vice Admiral Jorge Cabrera.

Garzhe had less than 50 days as head of the prison system.

These resignations occur after the weekend occurred a new clash between rival gangs in the Litoral Penitentiary, in Guayaquil, which left 68 dead.
