Three suspensions over Vanuatu jailbreak

4:07 pm on 5 January 2011

Three staff members of Vanuatu's correctional service have been suspended over last week's escape of eight high-risk prisoners from Port Vila's jail.

The director of the correctional centre, Johnny Marango, says the Public Service Commission is to decide their fate once investigations into the jail break have been completed.

Four of the eight escapees have been recaptured.
