Location: Bioko, Equatorial Guinea
Notable Residents: Simon Mann (British mercenary)
Amenities: Sparse meals and no medical treatment post-beatings
Brutal and systematic torture are common at one of Africa's most infamous prisons, all for the purpose of breaking the spirits of inmates. Prisoners are often savagely beaten, then denied medical attention. They're provided with laughable excuses for meals; some inmates starve to death. Disease spreads easily because prisoners are not given the opportunity to properly clean themselves. Prisoners are kept inside of their cells, shackles and all, for most of the day, another form of psychological and physical torture. A number of the prisoners kept at Black Beach were members of a 2004 failed coup d'état attempt against the President of Equatorial Guinea, Teodoro Obiang Nguema, former Governor of Black Beach.
