A feeble galvanized Sheet in the television room at the Immigration Detention Centre was all five men had to shift to flee to freedom.
Two detainees who witnessed the escape and spoke to CNC3 said the five men pushed their bodies against the galvanized sheet to raise it... and crawled through the opening onto the roof.
The five detainees who escaped from the Immigration Detention Centre in Arima may have snuck out during an event there yesterday afternoon.
CNC3 News spoke to a Senior Official at the IDC who said officers did not discover that the five men were missing until hours later.
During a routine head count around eleven last evening, officers realised five of the 107 detainees could not be found.
Three of the escapees have been identified as Venezuelan nationals Rodney Noel Mendoza, Luis Sifontes, and Jose Yanez.
