Great escape attempt foiled at prison

prisonWILLEMSTAD - An escape attempt from the only prison in Curaçao was stopped. This is according to the director of the Center for Detention and Correction Curacao (SDKK).

The plan for the jailbreak leaked out: a tip about a greatest escape attempt was received. The prison management searched all cells and found among other mobile phones, drugs, anabolic steroids, homemade weapons and the bars of two cells were sawed.

The director spoke of a great escape attempt because there has been discussion in the run-up to the planned outbreak among several prisoners from different cells that were planning to join.

The prison on Curaçao has a history of problems and abuses. There was a shooting in which a prisoner died in July 2012. And in May, four serious criminals escaped.

Formerly called the Koraalspecht prison, which later became the Bon Futuro prison for several years, it is now called the Center for Detention and Correction Curaçao.
