Five of the six dangerous inmates, who attempted a daring jailbreak at the Georgetown Prisons back in December 2008, were all found guilty yesterday by Magistrate Susanna Lovell. They were all jailed for three years.
Charged with attempting to breach the prison were Dennis Williams, called Anaconda; Sherwin Nero, called Sherwin Moses; Mark Royden, called Durant Williams; Jermaine Savoury, called ‘Ja Ja’; Paul Bagot, and Dwayne Archibald now deceased.
It was alleged that the six tried to escape from the Capital section of the Camp Street Prison on December 28, 2008 knowing that they were incarcerated for criminal offences.
The matter was going on for some time but was stopped after Magistrate Nigel Hawke resigned. The case recommenced before Magistrate Lovell.
The prosecutor was Police Prosecutor Neville Jeffers. While the preliminary inquiry was going on, Dwayne Archibald, who was serving a sentence for narcotics, died after he was stabbed by another inmate.
Paul Bagot who was charged with the murder of schoolgirl Abigail Gittens on September 30, 2004, was freed earlier this year in the High Court.
Sherwin Moses was slapped with an additional charge of escape since he was caught on Mandela Avenue and was given an additional three years.
Quick response by prison authorities and the Joint Services had led to his recapture.
Five of the escapees never made it out of the prison compound, while the sixth, murder accused Sherwin Moses, also called Sherwin Nero, ‘Pattacake’, and ‘Cattie’, was recaptured on Mandela Avenue.
Dennis Williams is also charged with the Bartica massacres and armed robbery in connection with the GuySuCo payroll heist.
Mark Williams, of Uitvlugt Estate Road, was charged with the Lusignan massacres.
He has being committed to stand trial for that in the High Court.
Jermaine Savoury was charged with the murder of Melissa Payne, who was shot dead during a robbery in Agricola. He too has been committed to stand trial in the High Court.
Sherwin Moses was charged, along with now-dead fugitives Rondel ‘Fineman’ Rawlins and Cecil Simon Rambarran, called ‘Magic’, ‘Limpy’, and many other names, with the murder of Ivor Williams, a 24-year-old soldier, who was shot dead in Buxton.
Nero, 22, of Lot 74 Dennis Street, Sophia, was also charged with the August 30, 2007 murder of mango trader, Kumar Singh, called ‘Mango Man.
Kaieteur News was told that the inmates broke out of the Remand Dormitory by prising out a bar from a cell window.
After climbing through the window, the prisoners climbed down a water tank trestle and made their way into the compound.
However, an alert prison warder reportedly spotted the prisoners trying to scale the prison fence and raised an alarm.
The police, army personnel and other Joint Services ranks responded quickly and captured five of the men. However, Sherwin Moses managed to scale the prison wall.
The police said that Moses was found at Rasville, Georgetown.
