TWO of the three convicted inmates who were admitted at the PJ Twomey Hospital have been discharged, while the third inmate is still admitted.

The three inmates were confirmed to be suffering from tuberculosis (TB).

Fiji Corrections Service spokeswoman Kuini Waqasavou confirmed the two had been discharged after the medical officer found their health condition improving daily.

"However, the third inmate is still admitted at the hospital and is currently being monitored," Ms Waqasavou said.

The two inmates are now back at their holding cell at the Suva Corrections Centre, while the third inmate was incarcerated at the Naboro Maximum Facility.
