Testimony in St.Alban's prison torture case

Lukas Muntingh has testified on the position of St. Alban's prison within the South African Department of Correctional Services in the civil lawsuit brought by 231 inmates from St Albans prison, which resumed in the Port Elizabeth High Court on 2 February 2015.

The prisoners brought a civil claim for damages against the Minister of Correctional Services, claiming they had been tortured during a mass assault over a 5 day period after a warder was killed in 2005.

Muntingh's testimony, which defence counsel initially objected to, was based on a 40-page report which was provided to the court.
