Prison Conditions in France Worse than Guantanamo?

From David's Medienkritik, we learn the following:
The European Council's commissioner for human rights has described conditions in the prison in France's most august court building as the worst he has seen. ...

... [H]uman rights organisations have uncovered evidence of prisoners, mainly illegal immigrants, going without food, drink and lavatory paper as they huddle together for warmth. There have been numerous violent attacks and cases of detainees mutilating themselves and smearing their blood on the walls.

I am sure that France will be roundly criticized by the same organizations that criticized the U.S. about conditions at Guantanamo. Yeah, sure.
