Prison escapee Germaine Sebastian.

An active manhunt is still underway for 40-year-old Germaine Sebastian, the inmate who escaped Her Majesty’s Prison on Saturday, October 30.

An identification profile released by the police describes Sebastian as a medium built man who is five feet nine inches tall.

He is of dark complexion and weighs about 170 to 180 pounds.

    Nice local boy. Foy would give him Belongership if he didn’t already have it. Deport him to his indigenous (Africa) homeland if caught.

      should back there, no matter what our race.
