A prisoner said his wife had an affair with a prison officer. The prisoner made the allegation before the Commission of Inquiry into Tafaigata Prison this week.
But details are unknown because the allegation was made in a closed sitting of the commission which is into its fifth week of investigation.
“All the sittings were in private and closed to members of the public due to the sensitivity of the issues being discussed,” an update of proceedings says.
On Monday 4 November 2013, the Commission heard evidence from one current prisoner about his treatment in Tafaigata.
