St. Vincent & Grenadines: Primus swapped cells to escape through prison roof

Accused murderers Veron Primus, 33, and Ulrick Hanson, escaped through a hole they had cut through plywood and galvanise sheets at Her Majesty’s Prison (HMP), in Kingstown, over a two-day period.

Primus’ escape last week was his second in just over a year, as he awaits trial in connection with the November 2015 murder of real estate agent, Sharlene Greaves, 33.

In order to access the cell through which they escaped, Primus traded accommodation with a new prisoner, sleeping alternatively between the cell to which he was assigned and the one he swapped with another prisoner.

Information about the escape was relayed at the Kingstown Magistrate’s Court, on Monday, where Primus pleaded to charges of escaping lawful custody and damage to property.
