A Maltese prisoner was found dead in his cell this morning in Corradino Correctional Facility.
The 45-year-old man was found dead at 6.45 am today. According to the prison, it seems that the man died a natural death.
Police are informed and a magisterial inquiry has been opened.
Informed sources told Lovin Malta that the prisoner had heart problems due to obesity, was also a heavy smoker and didn’t exercise.
While being monitored by doctors, his condition did not require hospitalisation and prison could not force him to take action on his personal condition.
