Laptop computers were among prohibited items law enforcement authorities found during a prison search in Martinique.

As a result of the authorities seizing the items, prison officers say they have received death threats.

According to Martinique 1Ere, the laptops belonged to inmates whom the authorities consider to be dangerous.

And  the union representing prison officers has called for improved security at Ducos.

Trade Union representative Patrick Louvounou said the security issue has to be taken very seriously.

Reports indicate that the authorities frequently find prohibited items in the prison, although they conduct regular searches.

Prison officers say because of the devices the inmates had, they are concerned about the ability of prisoners to form organisations inside the prison, with connections outside.
