A Brazilian drug lord serving an eight-year prison sentence has been seeing out 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, was living the life of luxury behind pars in the Paraguayan prison. Investigators flooded the Brazilian's cell in search of the explosives on Tuesday night, but instead found his luxury prison pad. After the raid, Pavao's lawyer said the lifestyle her client was able to lead while locked up was proof of how deeply corrupt the Paraguayan prison system had become. '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. In the wake of the scandal, Justice Minister Carla Bacigalupo was sacked almost immediately.
