A review into New Zealand prisons is underway, as Corrections continues to face pressure over its treatment of inmates, RNZ reports. The review is one of many sparked by the treatment of three inmates at Auckland Women’s Prison. “If there are lessons to be learnt or practices to be updated, I want these to be considered at the earliest opportunity,” said Chief Inspector Janis Adair. Earlier this month, the Inspectorate found a “catalogue of failures” and said “not only did the system fail the wāhine, it also failed to support the staff who were charged with managing them”.
