BCF Adopts Additional Measures After Inmate Attack


Bordelais Correctional Facility (BCF) was putting ‘additional measures’ in place to prevent further violence after a male inmate attacked another on Sunday, sources have disclosed.

But officials would not go into details.

The alleged perpetrator attacked the victim with an improvised weapon, inflicting multiple injuries.

As a result, the victim, who was on remand regarding a firearm-related offence, had to be rushed to a medical facility where he was in stable condition.

St. Lucia Times has learned that both the injured inmate and the alleged perpetrator are from Vieux Fort.

However, according to reports, the victim has declined to press charges.

A Department of Home Affairs statement on Sunday’s BCF incident said prison officers responded swiftly to an altercation involving two inmates during a routine recreation break for the Remand Block.

The statement said the officers quelled the altercation, ensuring the safety of other inmates.

It noted that one individual sustained body lacerations and was in stable condition at the hospital while the assailant was under ‘close management.’

  1. If the Victim don’t want police to Charge the Attacker .It seems the Injured Prisoner has his police Force who will Deal with the Incident

  2. Reactive Officials – leading from the back. Something must happen to put measures in place. Anything proactive at this point ? Until next time

  3. We are all aware that Bordelais officers are corrupt, from top to bottom. The bottom bringing contraband , the top having affair with the females. Mama. Who was the officer supervising the recreation when the wounding took place?
    Oh, what become of the lost firearm? Where is the transparency in this island?
