An undisclosed number of inmates at the Saskatchewan Penitentiary have been transferred to other federal institutions after a deadly riot on Dec. 14.
Jeff Campbell, regional communications manager with Correctional Service Canada (CSC), could not disclose the exact number of transferred inmates or where they went to due to the Privacy Act.
A lockdown at both the medium and maximum security units at the penitentiary in Prince Albert is still in place.
Visits also remains suspended.
Jason Leonard Bird, the inmate who died as a result of injuries sustained during the riot, was laid to rest on Thursday.
