Pollsmoor inmates join in on the social media action
A Facebook page has been created, containing dozen of photos of Pollsmoor prison inmates.
CAPE TOWN - Prison officials say inmates found guilty of smuggling cell phones could have their sentences prolonged.
These pictures are believed to have been taken by the inmates.
It appears Pollsmoor inmates also want to get in on the social media action; smuggling in cell phones to be able to peruse popular sites like Facebook from behind bars.
Pollsmoor's Maximum Security inmates have seemingly started a Facebook page, giving users a glimpse of their stay in prison.
Some of the pictures include selfies, inmates sleeping and prisoners brandishing gang signs.
But the Correctional Service Department's Manelisi Wolela has warned they will not tolerate this behaviour.
Cell phone detection systems have been piloted in among others Pollsmoor, St. Albans Prison in the Eastern Cape and Kgosi Mampuru Prison in Gauteng.
