The inmates at the strike hit prison in Bern have gone back to work after authorities agreed there could be a room for them to have sexual contact with their partners.

But their other demands, such as higher prison pay, were not accepted.

Last week eight of the alleged ringleaders of the strike were moved to another prison and the inmates were barred from any electronic media.

The prison director, Thomas Egger, told the press the prisoners are calm and working.

However, there must be questions as how the media were fully informed throughout the crisis despite a ban on phones.
