    This is an ongoing problem for the Guyana Police Force and they seem unable to put a complete STOP to prisoners escaping whilst seeking medical attention at a Hospital.

    It is beyond me why such prisoners are not put in “Leg Chains” or handcuffed to the bed or both !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Happy to hear that he was caught, you can run but you can’t hide.

      I will be happier to hear that those who were harbouring him are charged and hauled before the court. I cannot recall one single instance in which this was done. Nurses who provide medical services to wounded criminals also seem to get away with it.Maybe this will mark the change.

    Here is a chap that seems fit to clear six yards of weeds a day in canal somewhere along the coast . In a year he can get up to a mile of the canal cleaned…
