Prison guard interdicted after inmate who allegedly swallowed razor blade escapes
A rank attached to the Georgetown Prison Service was Monday morning interdicted from duty after a prisoner in his care managed to escape during the course of Sunday night.
The rank has not been named by the Director of Prisons (ag) Nicklon Elliott but he confirmed the man’s interdiction and said he is expected to be charged at the level of the Court shortly.
Elliott said the prisoner, who was identified as Mohammed Ali, escaped while at the Georgetown Public Hospital.
He was there as it was alleged that he swallowed a razor blade but sometime around 1:30am this morning the rank reported being unable to locate him.
Ali was serving time on several fraud-related charges.
The fraud convict was charged with defrauding a businessman of over $2 million in phone credit by impersonating former Minister of Public Health Volda Lawrence from prison.
Prior to that, Ali was convicted and jailed for impersonating former First Lady Sandra Granger and taking money from women by promising scholarships to them.
