An inmate of an Australian jail is on hunger strike in order to retain possession of a mobile phone he's kept inside his anus for up to a week.

The inmate is believed to be Kon Georgiou, a convicted triple-murderer doing a long stretch inside Goulburn Jail's “Super Max” unit. That facility is reserved for the worst of the worst and therefore supposedly the most secure jail in the Australian state of New South Wales. Mobile phones aren't allowed inside the jail. Penalties apply to inmates found in possession of phones, and those who supply them.

You have to wonder if the battery will survive such constant temperature.

If it is a lithium battery they tend to explode when over heated, so no more hot curry or chilli.

If they want to make him remove it why not keep phoning his number the constant ring tone should be a real pain in the *ss.

Seriously I would have thought that having a phone inserted is a threat to his health and safety and there are grounds for anaesthetising him and removing it.

Ew!
I sympathise for the authorities that have to inspect that!

I assume it's not a large smartphone.

I also would have thought it would fail at some point through fluid ingress.

Not to mention the poisons that may end up in his system.

Why am I even commenting!

Unless it's set on vibrate... (Um, no, I'm not going to go any further in that direction.)
