Apparently if you have it then you have to flaunt it, no matter where you are, not even in a prison cell.
Convicted Brazilian drug lord, Jarvis Chimenes Pavao, considered one of South America’s most dangerous narcotics traffickers, is doing just that. He has the money and he’s flaunting it big time.
His prison cell is a three-room suite complete with a library, high-tech kitchen, stylishly tiled walls, plasma TV and even a conference room.
He has been serving an eight-year sentence for money laundering since 2009 at the Tacumbu prison in Asuncion, the capital of Paraguay.
Police discovered the luxurious cell on Tuesday night at almost the same time, as a bomb was uncovered inside the prison. It is believed that the drug baron wanted to create a diversion by detonating the device, in order to allow him to escape.
Chimenes Pavao was due to be released in 2017, but it is alleged he feared being extradited back to Brazil where he would face extra charges, hence his desire to break out of jail.
Following the discovery, Pavao was moved to another prison, to the disappointment of many inmates, as according to them, the drug lord has always been very generous.
