Idir Mederess, 22, was found dead in prison cell in Corbas, France.

Mederess was found hanged in his cell two weeks before his release. Doctors said he committed suicide. His family does not believe in it and thinks that he was beaten by the prison guards who eventually killed him.

“Rebellion” organization published an article in which called inmates who witnessed the beatings and murder of Mederess to testify. The organization reported that one of the inmates stated that Mederess was beaten, deprived of water and electricity, and forced to drink water from the toilet. According to the organization, the guards now beat that prisoner to silence him.

MASS MEDIA ABOUT THE CASE:

“There are suicides, but they make inmates to do this. The conditions of detention do not correspond to a level of a country like France with civil and human rights,” Mederres’ mother said.

“I spoke with him on the phone a lot, he was looking forward to be released from the prison. He was a boy with plans for life, I can’t believe he could commit a suicide,” Mederres’ mother said.
