Urdangarín is serving his time in a women's prison about 100 km from Madrid. He has been in solitary confinement and not allowed to meet other inmates ever since he entered prison.He has been carrying out volunteer work (eight hours a week) at a centre for disabled people over the last few months.

Plenty of time to think. Anyway, I have always felt  sorry for their children.

Curious, why is he serving his time at a women's prison?

Inaki Urdangarin, who is married to Princess Cristina, the king’s sister, chose Brieva penitentiary in Álava over 81 other prison facilities in Spain. Brieva houses around 200 female inmates.  It also has a small four/five cell module for male prisoners that is rarely used.  Inaki is the first male prisoner to used it in many years.

It is believed that he selected this facility for the following reasons, per El Pais:

1. "The center is located near Madrid, making it easier for his wife and four children to fly in from Geneva to visit him. Urdangarin had been considering Brieva and other penitentiaries near Madrid, such as the ones in Segovia and Zaballa (Álava).

2. "The fact that Urdangarin can be alone in the center is important. It means there is nearly no security risk to him and no chance that he will be recorded on a cellphone, as has happened recently with other celebrity inmates. He would not come in to contact with any other inmate or share any common spaces."

Inaki is a high security risk prisoner who would require extra precautions if he were incarcerated with other male prisoners.  Women inmates are housed in a separate section of Brieva.  

Of course, the downside of the situation is that he is very alone and this could lead to psychological issues related to isolation.  It should be noted that he is not in "solidary confinement" per se as punishment, but rather in an isolated situation of his choosing, presumably for his own safety and privacy.


'Of his choosing' so no one can see how posh-ly he's serving his term. Please, I don't feel sorry one bit for him. I'm sure he gets good food, a cell phone, Skype and a million other amenities that the average inmate would never dream of. If he's suffering then good, but I doubt he is.

Even, if so, he made his own bed and now has to lie in it.

I think it was a prison that had an old block that was used for some prisoners in solitary - hadn't been used for a while and it was opened up for him. the rest if the prison is for women, the whole story is somewhere else, I'll see if I can find it


ETA https://murciatoday.com/k...on-sentence_518815-a.html

They said  it is partly for security reasons and because it is almost midway between Madrid and his hometown in northern Spain — his choice.Also, there  have been no leaks or pictures taken by other inmates or their visitors. A former & notorious high officer who served his time there stated that it was frozen hell and isolation drove you crazy.

Thank you both for the info!  Star I don't know much about this situation so was surprised to read that he was being kept at a women's prison.

Can they request the use of an entire wing of their choice of prison? Can they request preferential treatment because of who their father-in-law is? Your point was...?

It seems a bit ridiculous that he went into a women's prison and gets first class treatment there. But then he is getting first class punishment because everyone know him and therefore knows what he did. Sadly his children are punished as well ...

He is not the first male prisoner there and the one other prisoner I know of is not related to the SRF. According to the media, Brieva has a better heating system now.

Will he be eligible for parole for good behavior?  In the States, model prisoners ( behavior wise) can get huge chunks off their sentences.  Does Spain do that too?

As from next February, he will have served a quarter of his sentence and will be allowed to leave Brieva 36 days per year. By next autumn, he will be eligible for day release.

Well dearest, if you ever contemplate to off your boss or to hasten the "until death doth us part" be sure to do so in the northern countries of Europe. Not only is the sentence much shorter than in the US but the prisons are a lot more comfy just as well. Celebrity prisoners or those with money can expect outside catering (seriously prison food though much better than in any CF overseas is blah), and you doN't get the standart bedding and stuff but lovely thread counts. There is TV, Internet, cellphone (though I wouldn't advice plotting anything sketchy via email,mobile or Facebook) and of Course education (in any form) is available for everybody.
Plus hardly anybody seems to do full term. (just avoid knifing a warden)….

Yes I saw that too. I don’t care about him very much, but happy birthday anyway.
