Reports are that one of the Lusignan Prison inmates was chopped about his body, yesterday, and was treated for his injuries.
The inmate has since refused to identify his attacker.
Notably, while the Director of Prisons, Gladwin Samuels, has also not commented on the matter, he has indicated that efforts are underway to “establish proper control” at that location.
Over 1,000 inmates from the Camp Street Prison, which was destroyed by fire during Sunday’s jailbreak, were moved to the Lusignan Prison. Since then, several inmates have been released early, as part of the Coalition government’s four-part emergency response plan, which includes a move to “immediately reduce the prison population.”
