Inmates of the strong cell division at Camp Street Prison yesterday set alight a mattress after protesting the conditions they were being kept under. They claimed that they were under lockdown 24/7.
The concrete facility located under the ‘capital division’ has 10 cells that houses rebellious inmates. However, according to reports Randolph Rodriques, called ‘Shoulders,’ who was transferred this year from New Amsterdam Prison to Camp Street Prison, is serving a 20-year sentence for murder.
The report is that his sentence is almost completed. He and others have been protesting issues relating to the way the present Officer in Charge of Camp Street Prison, Gladwin Samuels, has been terrorizing inmates.
“The man (Samuels) goes into the strong cell division and terrorize the men pulling out his gun and things. This makes prisoners angrier and causes more problems.”
“The prisoners crying out how they getting lock down 24/7, and how is pig food they getting serve and is only to the washroom they getting to go and lockdown again. They are saying that they are human beings and have rights.”
Randolph Rodriques was accused in May last of chopping four other inmates at New Amsterdam Prison and burning some with acid.
Those injured were identified as Davendra Harricharran, called ‘Bara’, 27, of Nigg Squatting Area, Corentyne, Berbice; Quammy Bhagwandin, 32, of Angoy’s Avenue, New Amsterdam; Clarence Williams called ‘Wild Hog’, 41, of Angoy’s Avenue, and Adbussulum Azimullah called ‘Sato’, 31, of Hampshire Corentyne, Berbice.
