Correctional Services said that “matters are under control” at Johannesburg’s Sun City Prison on Wed.
Police have been unable to secure four crucial witnesses who were in the police van when the alleged attack by police on their fellow prostitute took place in Pretoria on Monday.
Director Govindsamy Marie- muthoo told Sowetan that the four other prostitutes had appeared in court and were released. He said the police were now trying to "locate them and take statements from them as part of our investigation into the assault".
Mariemuthoo revealed that the police officers involved in the alleged assault were working as usual because investigations were still under way.
