Conditions at 1735 prompt deFreitas to call for investigation of prison operations

17

Franz deFreitas, the United Progressive Party (UPP) Candidate for St. John’s City South, is speaking out against  conditions at Her Majesty’s Prison, calling it a humanitarian crisis.

The penal institution – better known as “1735″ – has been plagued by poor sanitation these many years, and inmates and prison officers alike have been subjected to less than humane conditions.

Now, there are allegations that there is no drinking water for the use of staff or prisoners.

Further reports say that a new wing constructed at the facility has no running water; so toilets cannot be flushed and inmates have resorted to using buckets to flush them manually.

DeFreitas bemoans the fact that a British prisoner is being housed at the old US Naval Base in Coolidge – because of the prison’s unsanitary conditions – while locals have to contend with the unhealthy conditions at 1735.

The City South Candidate is calling for an investigation into the prison and into monies spent to construct the new wing. (REAL NEWS)

    • yes! As Lovell famously said – the easiest thing to do is to criticize while you´re in opposition. The prison needs urgent attention as had been said countless times way before the advent of BEGGY BEGGY.

  1. “inmates have resorted to using buckets to flush them manually” – and by inmates you mean the whole of Antigua?!!🤫🤣

  2. Maybe if them criminal politicians, that aremisappropriation public property like buses, buildings and motor cars, are placed there the conditions would dramatically improve

  3. Politics is an extremely funny game!

    When Ms. Thompson was the lonely person picketing the jail and its condition, she needed your support, Mr. Defrietas …… Where were you ?

    Is this a case of you pretending that you care so much bcuz the general election is now around the corner?

    I hope you are not one the foxes in sheep clothing seeking a political opportunity…… Quite amazing!! When something looks like a fish and it smells like a fish, then the chances of it being a fish is very high.

    Lets hope that you are not that fish!!

    • WHAT IS FISHY IS THE COST OF THE NEW WING OF THE PRISON. SCHOOL CHILDREN SAY THAT SOMEONE GOT A KICKBACK.
      THAT SMELLS WORSE THAN STINK FISH
