The prison in Menzingen is now even more secure than it normally is. Visits are banned, the prisoners are being fed in their cells on disposable plates and they can’t do their prison jobs. 

Staff have to stay at home when not at work.

The prison director says they’re in contact with cantonal authorities on when restrictions could be lifted.
