Foreign Inmate Complains About Prison Conditions

When Bright was brought down to Court Two, Nassau Street, for his weekly appearance before the court, he expressed frustration about the conditions he is being subjected to inside the jail.

He told Magistrate Sylevester about the inappropriate slop buckets being used as toilets in the cells. He claimed bathing on time and consuming drinking water were ”luxuries”.

The foreign inmate also complained about his health and the conditions in his cell. He pleaded for something to be done about it.

Magistrate Sylvester told Bright his plea was not an isolated one and that her courtroom was not the right place to direct his complaints.

Mr. Bright has been on remand in the prison for seven months.
