Citizens are being assured that stringent security and safety measures have been put in place in light of the removal of keys from the Port of Spain Prison.
Reports say the prison officer in question appeared in the Port of Spain Magistrates’ Court today charged with misbehavior in public office.
The officer was arrested last week and was granted bail.
Questioned on the development in the Senate Tuesday afternoon, National Security Minister, Edmund Dillon, confirmed that additional security arrangements have been implemented to prevent an occurrence of the incident.
