Prison guard suspended

A prison guard was suspended from his duties on Friday after being arrested for allegedly trying to influence a convicted man not to testify in a drugs case.

Reports say the 34-year-old is being investigated in connection with offences including the influencing of a witness in order to give false testimony or concealing true testimony, obstructing judges and interfering with justice, deceit and abuse of trust by a public official.

The guard was taken to CID headquarters for questioning, where he denied committing the offences.

Police sources point to the convict having reported the guard to the prison authorities, who immediately suspended the guard from his duties.
