ComPol Calls on Fugitives to Surrender!

Chester Williams

Commissioner of Police Chester Williams says that he believes that many of the escapees have returned to their homes so he is warning those who are harbouring the men. Today, he called on those relatives and friends who are assisting the fugitives to get in touch with the police or to have the men hand over themselves peacefully.

“We have credible information that a number of these escapees have returned to the area of residence prior to prison and they are being facilitated by family members and friends. I want to sound the warning that it is a criminal offence to aid or abetting an escaped prisoner; a convicted person or a wanted person and once it is that we are to find any of these prisoners are the home of anybody or if we can obtain concrete evidence of anyone facilitating them that those concerned will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. I, again, want to appeal to family members that it is best that you have your loved ones surrender themselves than to have the security forces out there pursuing them. We continue to consider these escapees as armed and dangerous and the safety and security of our personnel will always be paramount.”
