After spending a month in prison for contempt, Alistair Nelson, a member of the infamous group dubbed Montie 3 has given his account of his experience in prison.
He revealed that on the day they were sentenced, he was tempted to throw his sandals at the judges for the harsh sentence but was stopped by his lawyer.
“I’d wanted to throw my sandals at the judges when we went to the court that day because I knew we would be jailed, but my lawyer advised me not to and when we were sentenced, and sent to the prison, my life changed completely" he said.
He said being in prison for a month was nothing to ‘write home about’ although they were received nicely by other inmates.
“In fact, prison has really changed my life and everything about me. Just a month and I already feel like we’ve been there for like ages. I have learnt a lot throughout our stay in the prison and I must say that it is nothing to write home about" Alistair stated.
He also complained about how the police handle the prisoners during transportation to the prison. He said the policemen who transported them to the Nsawam prison insulted them as if they were criminals.
