Fiji’s Corrections Service (FCS) is once again pleading with visitors to adhere to visitation rules when visiting their facilities.
The call comes following recent discovery of contrabands on inmates despite repeated warnings from the Corrections department.
FCS media liaison officer Ana Tamani said, “Visitors must understand that contrabands are a serious breach of prison discipline and when found on inmates, they automatically lose their privileges so this does not help the situation at all.
“Our officers continue to seize contrabands from inmates as a result of snap searches that we continue to carry out.”
She said the contrabands including mobiles, sim cards, tobacco and drugs are “sadly brought in by visitors themselves.”
Tamani further said snap searches which is a normal part of their operations has been stepped up recently in light of the escape incident at Naboro Medium.
