Check Out The 'VIP Cell' A Brazilian Drug Lord Lives In Prison ( Photos)

While some are languishing in an overcrowded room, some are living in LUXURY. A Brazilian drug lord serving an eight-year prison sentence has been spending his time behind bars in a 'VIP cell' - complete with a plasma television, a kitchen, three rooms and a DVD library.

Jarvis Chimenes Pavao, was locked up in Tacumbu prison in Asuncion, Paraguay, after being found guilty of money laundering charges. Yet Pavao, who is considered to be one of South America's deadliest and most feared drug lords, is living the life of luxury behind bars in the Paraguayan prison.

But Pavao's cushy life behind bars came to an end at his own doing, after officers began to suspect he was planning to detonate a bomb in order to smash through one of the jail walls and escape.

Investigators flooded the Brazilian's cell in search of the explosives on Tuesday night, but instead found his luxury prison pad.

'Six or seven justice ministers and six or seven prison directors' took bribes from Pavao, his lawyer alleged.

The lawyer also claimed her client paid for lodgings for prison directors, toilets for the guards, the renovation of the prison library and the cooks' salaries.
