Created : 23 January 2018
It's just under two months since fraud accused Vicky Boodram escaped prison with the assistance of fake legal documents and today, prison officers are investigating a similar attempt at freedom, this time involving a high profile inmate.
Loop TT understands that on January 22, a request was made to take the prisoner who is awaiting trial for murder, to the Arima Magistrate's Court.
However, the inmate's matter is set for next week.
This prompted a search of the Remand Yard Prison today, causing a lockdown outside Frederick Street, Port-of-Spain.
