Prisoners and guards in Nicosia Central prison are not safe, Izzet Turkmen head of the justice and equal rights union HAK-SEN, has said. The union was preparing for strike action in order to get the politicians to hear their voices, he said. Furthermore, prisoners were on the verge of rioting, Turkmen warned.

The central prison was built to house 180 convicts in 1982, he said, pointing out that now, there were about 450 prisoners in the prison, emphasising that the prison capacity had been exceeded nearly threefold.
