Undesirable Escapee Deported


Olanzo Jamall Dore who was recaptured by the Royal Virgin Islands Police (RVIPF) last year after he escaped custody was deported from the Territory by order of His Excellency Governor Augustus Jaspert at the end of his conviction.

In an order issued on 29 January Governor Jaspert explained that : “It has come to my knowledge that Olanzo Jamall Dore is a person not deemed to belong to the Territory and that the said Olanzo Jamall Dore has been convicted of offences of Assault Causing Actual Bodily Harm, Destroying/Damaging Property and Escape which are punishable with imprisonment of three months or more.”

Governor Jaspert announced that Dore is a person whose presence in the Territory would be undesirable and not conducive to the public good. Additionally the Governor said that it is his opinion that Dore should leave the Territory. Therefore the Queen’s Representative ordered Dore to leave the Territory on or before the expiration of seven days from the date on which a copy of the Order was served on him by an immigration officer or a police officer, and thereafter to remain out of the Territory: “I do further order that the said Olanzo Jamall Dore be placed on board the first available ship or aircraft about to leave the Territory and that the said Olanzo Jamall Dore may be detained until he is placed on a ship or an aircraft,” the Governor added.

32 year old Dore is a native of St. Kitts and resided in The Valley, Virgin Gorda. After his arrest last year Dore escaped   custody   when   he   was placed on remand by the Magistrate’s Court in Virgin Gorda.

At the time of his escape Prison and Police officers were preparing to escort Dore, from the vehicle to the ferry boat on the St. Thomas Bay Jetty. It was said that he ran and made his escape. As a result a Territory wide appeal was made to secure his capture. Fortunately the search was short as Dore turned himself in a little while after his escape.
