Venezuelan rugby rehab for offenders

A Venezuelan rum magnate is using rugby to rehabilitate offenders.

Project Alcatraz, which uses the sport to reintegrate criminals into society, is the brainchild of Alberto Vollmer, the CEO of Santa Teresa.

The scheme has made him popular not only with the local community but with the government, too.

BBC News spoke to Mr Vollmer and some others of those involved in Project Alcatraz.

Produced by BBC Mundo's Daniel Pardo.
