Jacob Ostreicher To Be Penalized For 15 Days For Talking To The Media

The family of Jacob Ostreicher released the following information to TLS: Jacob was served a notification (see attached) that he will be penalized for 15 days for talking to the media in Bolivian and the media in the USA. The notification states that he mentioned Drug Use and (moderated) in the Nightline interview. They claim that this will cause a riot in the prison. 

Jacob never mentioned any of this on the interview with Nightline. You can watch the clip yourself and you will note that the information was taken from the ABC archives. 

Jacob’s interview was strictly about his suffering and his families suffering. He was on the segment for only a few seconds. 

The notification does not state what the penalty will be nor does it state when it will start. 

Standard procedure in Bolivia is to penalize prisoners by sending them to Chonchocorito. In Chonchocorito you kill or you get killed. The government obviously wants Jacob out of the way. 
Following is a description of the history of Chonchocorito:
Years ago, Palmasola Prison was run by 300 prisoners who would call the prisoners family and while they were on the phone would beat every prisoner senseless until the family would give up all of their possessions. Many prisoners died as a result of these beatings. Families would sell their homes, cars and anything else they owned to make the beatings stop. 4 years ago the prisoners rioted and murdered 10 of these gangsters. The government removed the 290 gangsters and put them in a separate prison called Chonchocorito.
