Corrections department under investigation after stabbing and knife discovery

Supreme Court knife discovery investigation continues as Inmate stabbed multiple times in Westgate Correctional Facility. How was it possible for a knife to be smuggled into court during the recent Raheem Wray murder trial? An answer to that question is being sought as police investigate the matter.

And attention may well be focused on officers at the Department of Corrections. TNN understands the Department of Corrections is responsible for securing the dock, the area occupied by the accused during a trial.

TNN has been reliably informed that just like court workers Corrections officers are themselves now expressing concern for their own safety while on duty in the courts.

We have been told there is now an air of distrust among Corrections staff as some wonder whether one of their own is responsible for placing the knife in the dock.

The hope is that the police investigation into the matter will be completed in quick time and that whoever is responsible will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Meantime, sources have informed TNN there was a major assault involving a number of inmates at the Westgate Correctional Facility over the weekend. Word is that at least one inmate had to be taken to hospital for treatment after he was reportedly stabbed multiple times by another inmate.

TNN has reached out to DCI, the Department of corrections and Minister of National Security for comment and we await their response.
