The situation at the Camp Street Prisons is returning to normalcy. This follows a meeting with Minister of Public Security, Khemraj Ramjattan and Minister of State, Joseph Harmon and the prisoners.

Ramjattan told members of the media that the inmates had “quite a lot of grievances”, especially as it relate to the conditions of the prisons. He said inmates also had grievances with some of the officers of the prison, as well as lengthy detention periods.
According to the Public Security Minister, this morning’s meeting with the aggrieved prisoners was “a useful thing…hearing their versions”.  While acknowledging that several of the complaints seems to be credible, Ramjattan assured that some of the basic needs of prisoners can be immediately addressed at this point in time.

  1. You cant do the time dont do the crime,Jail is Jail not a vacation spot,what they doing with cell phone and match in Jail and how is the PPP to be blame now that there is a new government?

  2. Well, Granger promised to free some more Prisoners for the up coming Independence Celebrations but these Prisoners want freedom before their time. So they got it—-Death. They all die for a cause A ‘Promised Freedom” by the APNU/AFC Regime. Is this for real?

  3. The PPP party was in government for more than two decades,what has it done to remedy the overcrowding of the Georgetown prison during that period?NOTHING.I am certain,if it hasn`t done so yet,will place the blame on the Coalition for being responsible for the protests that took place at the Georgetown prison.The previous government had enough time to remove the excess amount of prisoners from there to place them somewhere else,but never saw it fit to do,under the previous Home Affairs Minister,now PPP mouth-piece Rohee,who BRAYS all the time,and does nothing else.That is why he was called upon to resign in Parliament by the then Opposition,now government. I am looking forward to the inquiry that must take place sooner than later in this tragedy.

    Cack eye Ramjaat must tell the convicts to haal yuh ass now.
    Whey Ramjaat talking with convicts but cant talk to certain press people?
    Be reminded that it was the said Ramjaat that represent the little criminal when police bun up him wille.
    Some lawyer/ss will now represent these BBB convicts against Ramjjat.
    Ramjaat must go should be the chant on the streets now.

  5. I will also like to agree with the Minister of Communities that the lengthy detention period is too disgusting. I personally think that the way in which the judicial system works need to beef up.
