Trinidad and Tobago’s Commissioner of Prisons Sterling Stewart says breaches of procedures and protocol were responsible for the escape of two inmates from the maximum security prison on Independence Day.

Steve Mc Gilvary and Leroy ‘Redo’ Mohammed made a break from the Carrera Island Prison around 6:00pm on Monday.

Mc Gilvary, who is serving a 30-year sentence for unlawful killing, and 34-year-old Mohammed, who is serving a 12-year sentence for robbery with aggravation, remains on the run and are described by Police as being armed and dangerous.

The Newsday newspaper quoted Stewart as saying that preliminary investigations revealed that the two high risk prisoners were not under direct supervision as they should have been.
