Alarming news from Naboro Maximum Prison (pictured) where it is being reported a hunger strike has broken out.
FijiVillage and Fijibroadcasting Corporation say the police have confirmed the hunger strike and are looking into the grievances of prisoners.
FijiVillage says some of the inmates have ended their strike and that just a few prisoners are continuing their action.
The grievances surfaced during the court appearance of a remand prisoner who told the court prison officers were mistreating inmates.
The Fiji Prisons and Correctional Services has denied trying to cover up the hunger strike at Naboro, where the jailed coup leader George Speight is, of course, being kept.
