Director of Prisons Dale Erskine has launched an investigation to find out how an inmate serving time for armed robbery escaped from the Georgetown Prison.
Erskine told Kaieteur News that Surujnarine Singh, 20, of Mon Repos, East Coast Demerara, slipped away from prison guards between 14:00 hrs and 15:00 hrs yesterday while fetching items into the penitentiary.
It is unclear how the inmate managed to escape un-noticed.
According to Erskine, Singh was jailed for a knifepoint robbery and has only been in jail for about 20 days.
The incident comes in the wake of the daring
jailbreak last December by six dangerous prisoners, who broke out of the Remand Dormitory by prising out the bars from a cell window.
All of the inmates were quickly recaptured.
Last year, also, another prisoner simply walked out of the front gate while waiting to be registered as a new inmate.
