Brazilian Drug Lord Found Living In Luxurious En Suite Prison Cell

A Brazilian drug lord has been found living a life of luxury while behind bars.

Jarvis Chimenes Pavao hasn’t had to endure a grimy cell while serving eight years for money laundering at the notoriously crowded Tacumbu prison near Asuncion in Paraguay, the BBC reported.

Oh, no. Instead, he’s been whiling away his days inside a specially adapted, air-conditioned three-room suite.

Photographs and video released this week reveal how Pavao, who was likely due to be extradited back to Brazil in 2017 to serve a sentence for a previous drug trafficking conviction, enjoyed sleeping on a comfortable-looking double bed and keeping fit on a treadmill.

Entertainment came courtesy of his very own plasma television and computer, which was located near a refrigerator and freezer in case he needed a snack or beverage.

The 42-year-old also had ample wardrobe space for his collection of clothes and fancy footwear, as well as an en suite bathroom.

Other images show his fully stocked library and eclectic DVD collection, which included a TV series on the life of Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar who himself, before his death in 1993, cut a deal with his country’s authorities, who let him design and reside inside his own prison.

Pavao’s privileged prison life came to an abrupt end on Tuesday, however, after Paraguayan police discovered he was hatching an escape plot, Agence France-Presse reported.

He’s now been transferred to another secure unit while officials investigate how he came to set up his extravagant living quarters, which he would reportedly rent out to fellow inmates for up to $5,000 per week.
