Fiji police say they will not comment on the circumstances which led to a recaptured prisoner, Epeli Qaraniqio, having a leg amputated.
According to Fijivillage, police will only comment once they see the medical report.
Qaraniqio is one of those charged with robberies after their prison break-out last month.
The prosecution says he could not attend court because of the amputation.
It has asked for the case to be adjourned by two weeks.
