BALSAM GHUT, Tortola, VI- An inmate of Her Majesty’s Prison in Balsam Ghut is currently a patient of D. Orlando Smith Hospital after being stabbed by a fellow inmate on Thursday, January 9, 2020.

According to reports, Malik Maduro was stabbed under his arm by an inmate only identified as ‘Andrew’.

Maduro reportedly collapsed “in the laundry area” after the stabbing and another prisoner, indentified as Ricardo Farrell, assisted in trying to revive him.

Reports from prison sources are that the injured man was taken to hospital by ambulance.

“The ambulance met them on the way to the hospital,” a source at HMP told Virgin Islands News Online.

The person who allegedly stabbed Maduro was subsequently transferred to the A Wing of the prison, which was then placed on lockdown.

Superintendent of Prisons, Mr Verne A. G. Garde could not be reached; however, Police Information Officer Akia L. Thomas confirmed a stabbing incident took place at HMP on January 9, 2020.

“Yes, I can confirm that Police are investigating a stabbing incident at the prison. Investigations are ongoing,” Ms Thomas said today, January 10, 2020.

    Why do they still have those Jamaican in this country causing havoc in the prison? Mr. Governor it’s time to act, give those bad boys time served, used your executive privilege, sign their deportation order and have them sent back to JA. What purpose does it serve to still have them here house at the prison.
