    The Maori Party says prisoners at Waikeria were treated with extreme cruelty before they staged a protest

    The Maori Party says prisoners at Waikeria were treated with extreme cruelty before they staged a protest


    The 16 inmates involved in the action have filed claims of human rights abuses against the Corrections Chief executive and the Attorney-General, assisted by the Maori Party.

    They allege racist treatment, serious violence and harsh conditions.

    Party co-leader Rawiri Waititi says the claims are well founded, and not new.

    He says the Ombudsmen and the Human Rights Commission have also issued reports on the prison's conditions.
