InSight Crime Discusses Honduran Women’s Prison Investigation

Latin America

Investigators Victoria Dittmar and María Fernanda Ramírez discussed InSight Crime’s recent investigation of a massacre in Honduras’ only women’s prison in a Twitter Spaces event on September 4. The investigators explained how InSight Crime was granted unprecedented access to the prison prior to the June massacre that left at least 46 inmates dead, and how we incorporated a gender perspective into our exploration of growing tensions between the Barrio 18 and MS13 gangs.
