“The fight was among three remandees at the remand wing of the prison at around 6am this morning,” said the Commissioner.

Pokanis said the fight was later stopped by CS officers and the situation is now back to normal in the prison.

The Commissioner will be making his way to the prison facility later this morning to assess the situation.
