Russian term or phrase: пресс-хата (тюремный термин)
Просто нужен термин. Лежащие на поверхности варианты типа punishment / torture cells / sweatbox не делают более понятным, кто кому устраивает невыносимую жизнь или не являются точным понятием.

disagree  The Misha: Or better yet, pressure cooker:) Inventing new words is fine - when it works. This doesn't. You are translating figurative speech in one language verbatim into another language. This is ludicrous.

do the hardest time there is!


Explanation:
or:
to be cast down with the Sodomites.

Аскер пишет *их основная задача - сломать морально или физически того, на кого укажет администрация*
Now, I just happened to watch (for the umpteenth time:) the 'Shawshank redemption' last Sunday:
..Nothing stops. Nothing. Or you will do the hardest time there is. No more protection from the guards. I'll pull you out of that one-bunk Hilton and cast you down with the Sodomites. You'll think you've been f**ked by a train!... (c)
Isn't that pretty much what Mr. Norton 'the Warden' is threatening the defiant prisoner with? (сломать морально или физически)

Reference: "Sweat box"

Reference information:
Александра планируется поместить в камеру, так называемую, «пресс-хату», где на него будет оказано психологическое и физическое давление, со стороны подконтрольных администрации тюрьмы уголовников, вплоть до инсценирования самоубийства. Это будет сделано в ближайшие несколько суток, если Александр не даст «нужные» показания следствию, на себя и других участников политической оппозиции России, а также – откажется работать на ФСБ.

They’re planning to put Alexander in a cell—the so-called “sweat box”—where he’ll face psychological and physical pressure from other inmates under the control of the prison administration, up to an imitation of suicide. This will be done in the next few days, if Alexander doesn’t hand over the “required” evidence to investigators, incriminating himself and other participants in Russia’s political opposition, or if he refuses to work for the FSB.
