"During a police raid in Paraguay, officers were surprised to find a drug lord living the life of luxury in his three-room cell.

The slammer looks more like a hotel suit with a conference room, library, en-suite bathroom and kitchen, reports BBC News.

Occupied by Brazilian drug lord, Jarvis Chimenes Pavao, the Tacumbu Prison cell also featured air conditioning, a big screen plasma TV, treadmill and a DVD collection.

The inmate was close to completing his sentence for money laundering, when police turned over his cell and ‘destroyed’ the contents.

He has since been moved to a special unit and an investigation has been launched to uncover the prison officials involved in the cell’s lavish makeover.

Prisoners told Agence France-Presse that men were expected to pay Pavao $600 (£450) a week if they wanted to rent the space."

I would wonder if it could even be considered a jail cell as it looks more like he got himself a free stay at a hotel rather then a prison cell.

I would think it would be a combination of bribery and outright fear of being killed by his people. The thing about drug lords is they can still wield power even while behind bars as they likely have people on the outside who will do the drug lord's bidding who he can communicate with while in prison.
