A female prison guard, identified only as 'S', who worked at Lantin prison in eastern Belgium, has denied allegations of engaging in sexual activity at work and participating in orgies with colleagues. The accusations include claims that she would not be able to work unless she had sex and that she would regularly participate in X-rated jacuzzi sessions after work with other prison officers.
'S' refutes these claims and states that she has 'never done anything like what I'm accused of'. In an interview with La Dernière Heure newspaper, she expressed shock at the magnitude of the allegations and the impact they have had on her life. She emphasized that the accusations have stained her reputation and caused immense personal and professional damage.
Furthermore, 'S' stated that she has never witnessed other staff members engage in sexual activity and has vehemently denied the allegations made against her. Her lawyer, Michel Degrève, firmly contests all the accusations, stating that they have caused irreparable harm to his client's reputation.
The allegations came to light when a whistleblower revealed that ten prison officers, including 'S', would attend post-work jacuzzi sessions where they would participate in sex parties and pick colored bracelets to determine their respective partners. The whistleblower also claimed that these sessions took place at the home of one of the male guards, 'P', who was accused of engaging in sexual relations with female inmates.
The prison authorities have launched an urgent inquiry into the allegations, and 'S' has been transferred to the women's section of the prison while 'P' has been banned from the women's area. Lantin Prison Director, Marc Brisy, expressed his disappointment and reminded the staff that the workplace is not a dating club or an amusement park.
As the investigation unfolds, it remains to be seen what evidence will come to light to either substantiate or disprove the claims. In the meantime, the accused prison guard, 'S', continues to maintain her innocence and is determined to clear her name.
