PRISONS COMMISSIONER: "YTC escapees used hacksaw to break out..."

Prisons Commissioner Gerard Wilson told Guardian Media today that he isn’t surprised a hacksaw was used by the juveniles to escape from the facility.

Commissioner Wilson explains: “The lads often go outside of the compound, so there are many ways for them to get access to these hacksaw blades. Up to yesterday, a search was conducted because we had information about an item, but you will be surprised sometimes the types of items we would find in these searches."
