Kean: One officer fired, five suspended on remandee attack

The Fiji Corrections Service has confirmed an incident which occurred at the Suva Remand Centre on Wednesday, October 10.

The Fiji Corrections Service concluded its internal investigations which resulted in the termination of one officer.

It suspended five others, pending the outcome of the Police investigation.

The incident was reported to the Totogo Police Station based on the outcomes of their internal investigations. The Police are currently investigating this incident.

The remandee, Sefanaia Turagadamudamu, was attended to by the FCS Senior Medical Officer and also referred to the CWM Hospital for further medical examination soon after the incident.

The FCS has said they have zero tolerance on the assault of prisoners and strongly condemns the actions of a few rogue personnel who have tarnished the good work currently being undertaken by the majority of the officers, men and women of the Service.
