    Inspections of two prisons have highlighted repeated recommendations not being met and undignified and barren conditions

    Inspections of two prisons have highlighted repeated recommendations not being met and undignified and barren conditions


    Chief Ombudsman Peter Boshier has published two reports following unannounced follow-up inspections of Christchurch Men's Prison in February last year, and Whanganui Prison in September last year.

    Other concerns include the continuing use of force in one prison unit and a transgender prisoner being referred to by staff in a derogatory manner.

    Boshier says the issues show the apparent lack of progress by Corrections to improve treatment and conditions in prisons.
