Liam Adams refusing food at Maghaberry PrisonWednesday 29 January 2014 21.33
Northern Ireland's prison service has confirmed that Liam Adams is one of the inmates affected by new visiting arrangements at Maghaberry Prison.
It is understood the 58-year-old from west Belfast was threatened by fellow prisoners a number of times.
He has been refusing food since Monday in protest against the new visiting regulations.
Adams was given a 16-year prison sentence in November after he was convicted or a series of offences related to the sexual abuse of his daughter Áine.
