Three prison guards charged in relation to an alleged attack on a prisoner have entered pleas of not guilty.

The three men were granted name suppression at the North Shore District Court during their appearances on Friday morning.

The charges result from an incident at Auckland Prison in Paremoremo last month when police say a guard was stabbed multiple times by prisoners.

Police are investigating the force used by the three guards on the prisoners following the initial attack.
