fellas, the kind of heights involved in that escape...if u think this was a simple burst to freedom...hmm..u r sadly mistaken..

seem pretty normal to me.. no heights involved there...

you bribe some men, get some guns and give it a try... they were probably fearing for their life because if they went to trial, they may have to sing, who really behind it and if they did, their families will be targets as well..

so they try to make a break for it

Monthly bill of $25,000 for each inmate
By Darcel Choy (Newsday).


THERE are 3,667 persons incarcerated in this country, with each prisoner costing the State between $20,000 to $25,000 per month.

Attorney General Faris Al Rawi disclosed this yesterday during the first public consultation forum on prison reform at City Hall, Port-of-Spain.

He said the estimated cost of each prison in 2015 was $597 million and this includes, electricity, manpower, water, food, transportation, health and other additional costs.

“If you take the prisons figure alone, you divide by the total physical inmate population you will get $13,271 per head, per month, but when you factor what the additional costs, some intangibles, you can easily take that figure to $20 to $25,000 per head per month,” he said.

He added, “That is a real figure to be grappled with because coming out of that comes the discussion of what are we going to do about it? And are we prepared to make some hard choices, some unpopular choices? Are we prepared to have a real discussion not based on anecdotal information, based instead on statistically driven thoughts and analysis.”

Al Rawi disclosed that of the more than 3,000 persons incarcerated, there were 2,235 people in Remand. Of that number, 42 percent are charged with murder, five percent are charged with simple possession, six percent charged with trafficking, seven percent charged with sexual offences and 13 percent charged with possession of firearms and ammunition.

Then there is a category of “other” which comprises 27 percent of the Remand population.

Under this category, Al Rawi said people are in Remand on charges of using obscene language, failure to pay maintenance, breach of traffic regulations, and malicious damage.

Of the Remand population, 11 percent have been incarcerated for more than ten years.

Nineteen percent have been incarcerated for more than five years and 70 percent have beens incarcerated for five years or less.

Al Rawi said to maintain each prisoner for more than ten years cost more than $2 million.

“There are 246 that fit that category. It has costed us $649,440,000 to hold 246 inmates for 11 years. Four hundred and twenty five persons in remand for over five years, the annual figure for one person is $1.44 million,” he said.

To address the transporting costs and the delays in the criminal justice system, Al Rawi disclosed that a court was being constructed at the Remand prison.

Al Rawi noted that there are eight prisons in the country, with many over capacity. At the Remand prison, there are 1,032 as of December last year but the capacity is 655.

“Port-of-Spain prison has a capacity of 250 people and houses 725 people, in other words, 290 percent occupancy.

Carrera has a capacity of 185, housing 201 persons therefore having a capacity of 108 percent occupancy.

The Tobago convict prison has capacity of 30 and there are 53 people there as of December last year, being 177 percent capacity,” he said.

No water, so prisoners bathe in sea.

No water, so prisoners bathe in sea
By NALINEE SEELAL (NEWSDAY).


INMATES at Carrera Island prison are keeping clean by bathing in the sea after a non-functioning pump left the prison facility with no pipe borne water for the past two weeks.

The pump, located near water tanks, is supposed to pump water to the cell blocks. While officials wait for a replacement part to be sourced and sent to the island, prison officers have decided to allow prisoners to bathe in the sea, at 6 am and again at 4 pm, daily.

Inmates are given only one litre of drinking water a day and have not been able to wash their clothes or flush toilets because of the water problem.

Relatives of the inmates, who contacted Newsday, said they (the inmates) are fed-up with the situation and that life in prison is miserable enough with the dry taps making life almost unbearable.

President of the Prison Officers Association Ceran Richards confirmed yesterday that a pump has been down and that officers too have been adversely affected.

He said there was a proposal, some years ago, to run a water line from Nelson Island to Carrera to cut costs, but this never happened, for unexplained reasons. He said information being bandied about is that someone is paid close to $30,000 a week to supply water on a barge to the island prison and he wants the authorities to conduct a feasibility study to ascertain if this cost could be cut by running a line direct from Nelson Island.

“We hope the administrators deal with the problem quickly because water is essential for the overall maintenance of people,” Richards said, adding that Carrera is also badly in need of other repairs. Another problem is that prison officers have no waiting area and no facilities to board the boat that takes them to Carrera.

“We have been asking for that for years,” he said, “And nothing has been done to accommodate officers at Hardscot Bay. The association will be aggressively pursuing this going forward.” Richards said the budget for 2016/2017, has a $1.5 million allocation to deal with Carrera’s water problem, but to date, no remedial action has been done.

The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.

Riot at Golden Grove prison
RYAN HAMILTON-DAVIS (NEWSDAY).


A riot broke out at the remand section of the Golden Grove Prison on Tuesday.

The riot is being streamed live from inside the prison, and prisoners could be heard saying, “We not dying from no corona.”

They claim there are oppressive conditions in the prison as the courts are on lockdown because of the coronavirus and they have been left without trial dates.

In the live video, men could be seen with T-shirts covering their faces, chanting, “We want we freedom”

“These people are not violent,” said a prisoner. “They want their freedom.”

The person live streaming the riot went from prisoner to prisoner asking them to tell their families they love them.

Commissioner of Prisons Dennis Pulchan told Newsday he was en route to the prison to assess the situation.

Prison officers beaten during riot

Approximately 250 prisoners are still being contained after a prison riot which broke out around midday today.

A police report indicated that at around 11.20 am, two prisoners were creating a disturbance and prison officers responded. The two prison officers were beaten and the altercation deteriorated into a riot.

Prisoners captured two prison officers and held them hostage. One of them suffered a broken jaw while the other prison officer was beaten unconscious. Prisoners took the opportunity to try and escape from remand yard by trying to breach the southern wall and setting fire to the roof. The prisoners were armed with improvised weapons.

The trouble started when a visitor was denied entry, according to a prison source. A Joint unit including the Regiment, Guard and Emergency Branch, SORT, the fire service and Northern Division police officers are currently at the scene trying to bring order to the situation. Videos recorded with cellphones inside the prison were posted to social media.

In the videos, some prisoners were shouting out about the covid19 virus almost as if to indicate the riot was because of the disease. More on this as news comes to hand.

The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.

Prison guard stabbed by inmates at Arouca
JADA LOUTOO (NEWSDAY)


ACTING Commissioner of Prisons Dennis Pulchan on Monday condemned the stabbing of a prison officer by two inmates at the remand facility at Golden Grove, Arouca, at about 7 am.

A release from the prison service said prisons officer I, Damien Allong, with over 21 years of service, was going about the routine morning duties of opening cells individually, when he was attacked by the inmates who were in possession of improvised weapons.

The officer received eight stab wounds about his body, namely his head, face and arms.

An alarm was immediately raised, officers responded and due force became necessary to bring the situation under control, the release said.

Officer Allong was rushed to the infirmary and then transferred to a medical facility for further treatment and observation.

The police were called in and charges are expected to be laid against the inmates.

Pulchan has expressed his empathy over the incident and has promised that all assistance possible would be made available to his officer, who is in a stable condition.

He has also informed that the inmates were treated for the injuries received whilst attempting to disarm them.

The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
