THE Fiji Corrections Service is refuting claims by five of six remanded inmates at the Naboro Maximum Security Corrections that they are on a hunger strike.

The inmates Michael Scott, Peni Tukai, Iowane Benedito, Sefanaia Turagadamudamu, Bola Basaga and Deshwar Kishore Dutt are said to be on day two of their hunger strike because of the inhumane and degrading treatment they are receiving at the maximum prison.

Prison spokeswoman Kuini Waqasavou denied that any inmate was on a hunger strike.

"Everything is normal at the Maximum Corrections Facility and no one is on hunger strike," she said.
