DITSHWANELO CALLS FOR AN INQUEST INTO THE MYSTERIOUS DEATH OF AN INMATE WHILE IN PRISON

Written by on

Human Rights group, Ditshwanelo has called for an inquest to be conducted, for an inmate who lost his life whilst in prison.

The call was made following a statement issued by prison services yesterday that the inmate died after a fight with a prison officer.

Ditshwanelo Spokesperson, Lame Moreeng said the inquest will enable a full investigation as the prisoner did not die due to natural causes and will further show circumstances surrounding the death of the inmate.

It is alleged that the prisoner attacked and seriously injured an Officer with a metal object. The Officer is admitted at the hospital with serious body injuries.
