Prison inmate to face charges over assault

A prison inmate is to be charged with assault after an attack on an officer at Westgate.

According to a Ministry of National Security spokesman, the officer was “executing his duties” when he was assaulted on Monday.

The prison's duress system was activated and staff responded according to protocol.

The officer sustained “minor injuries” and attended hospital as a precaution.

The inmate was moved to disciplinary segregation.

Police have launched an investigation, with the inmate expected to be charged “in due course”.
