Five Inmates make failed attempt to Escape Prison


The authorities last evening foiled the escape of five inmates at Her Majesty’s Prison.


One inmate scaled the south eastern wall but was held by police shortly afterward and returned to the prison.


Four others did not manage to reach the perimeter wall.


Acting Prison Superintendent Jermaine Anthony says an investigation is being carried out.

  1. Bring in that teacher to give these boys some of that corporal punishment. It’s well deserved.

    • Just to let you know Antigua and Barbuda signed the human rights declaration which outlines the treatment of prisoners ( To include the abolishing of corporal) in 2011, however it was not until 2017 the government made an amendment to the Prison Act which abolished corporal punishment.

      • Are you telling me corporal punishment is illegal in prison, but is LEGAL in school???? What’s going on here. Send those teachers and principals into the prison to teach the would-be escapees what corporal punishment is all about. What is going on here. Looks like some of the inmates might have to show us what corporal punishment is about in a prison, and how they keep troublemakers in line. There is such a thing as prison justice, whether we like it or not. Would be escapees give everybody a bad name, and this is not desirable in a prison setting. It leaves the rest of the inmaters unhappy, since they are being painted unfairly. Hmmmm.
