Native Affairs - Interview with Kelvin Davis on Corrections

Labour MP Kelvin Davis came face-to-face with some of the country's most hardened criminals yesterday on a vist to Pāremoremo Prison.  He was talking to former Mt Eden inmates about their treatment while at the privately-run Corrections Facility.

Two weeks ago the Corrections Department took over Mt Eden from the British company Serco, following numerous reports of violence within the prison.
