If he is not a New Zealand born citizen he should be deported back to where he came from originally.

We don't need such people operating in our prisons, nor in our society in general.

Who will be his next victim as there is likely to be one if he hasn't received appropriate rehabilitation.

A senior staff member at the Auckland Region Womens Corrections Facility has lost his bid for reinstatement after having sex with a colleague at work.

A senior corrections officer has been fired after having sex with a colleague inside a high security area of an Auckland prison.

Mohammed Ifraz began working for the Department of Corrections in 2005 and by last year had been promoted to principal corrections officer at Auckland Regional Women's Corrections Facility.

But in July last year a female colleague told her manager she had been in a relationship with Ifraz for six months and that the two had sexual intercourse while on duty within a high security area.

She also claimed Ifraz had allowed her to leave work early so the pair could meet off site.

Ifraz was suspended pending an employment investigation and eventually fired last month.

Details of the sordid allegations were revealed in an Employment Relations Authority (ERA) decision after Ifraz lodged a complaint, seeking to be reinstated to his former position in the interim and paid lost wages and compensation.

In a letter advising Ifraz of his dismissal, prison director Cheryle Mikaera said given his lack of remorse or regret she failed to see how she could trust him again.

But Ifraz told the authority that while he accepted he could no longer work with the woman he had sex with, he could work at a different prison or the woman could be transferred.

ERA member Vicki Campbell said the woman he slept with was back working at the prison and her husband worked at another prison, so it was innapropriate for Ifraz to work at either.


"The prison environment is not a typical working environment. This is an environment where there needs to be a high level of trust with all employees but especially those employees who are making management decisions on a day-to-day basis.


"Employees holding senior roles such as Mr Ifraz are required to carry out their roles in a way that does not give any cause for concern."

Campbell declined to reinstate Ifraz in the interim, before a substantive hearing is held in December.

Corrections have been approached for comment.
