Home Affairs Minister Dr. Virginia Albert-Poyotte has called for a full investigation into Sunday’s escape of a convicted rapist from the Bordelais Correctional Facility (BCF) farm. The Minister spoke on Monday, hours before a joint operation involving BCF and police officers recaptured Elwin Lansiquot. He was hiding in some bushes at Praslin and offered no resistance. “It’s a while we haven’t had a case where an inmate escaped from the prison. So, I would want a full investigation into the matter and I will await a comprehensive report on what transpired,” Albert-Poyotte told St. Lucia Times. She explained that the authorities would decide on measures to prevent a recurrence based on the investigation and report. On Sunday, the BCF disclosed the escape of fifty-five-year-old Elwin Lansiquot, alias’ La Por Ta’ or ‘Big Dude’ from the prison farm. According to a BCF statement, the prison noticed Lansiquot’s absence at approximately 8:30 a.m. He was serving a 20-year sentence for two counts of rape, kidnapping, and false imprisonment, arising from a 2006 incident at Canaries. A search party found him at about 10:35 pm on Monday. & & The article Albert-Poyotte Calls For Full Investigation Into BCF Prisoner Escape is from St....
