As posted in Kolbe Foundation Abuse Watch on Facebook:
PRISON OFFICERS LEAVING THE PRISON AT NIGHT – We have just been reliably informed that it is likely that the weakening of the prison officers at night to go and check Taheera’s resident in Hattiville, may have contributed to these three escapes. If Prison Officers are still involved in the security of the superintendent’s house at night then that is in contravention of the Minister of National Security’s directive. We are aware that the minister had directed that no prison officers should be involved in the security of that residence. Taheera’s salary at Kolbe is $4,000.00 per month. She can pay for her own security and not the Tax Payers. If those officers kill someone near her house in Hattiville, those officers has broken the law (Firearms Act).
