In the fourth such escape within the past five weeks, three Cuban migrants got out of the George Town Immigration Detention Centre early Tuesday morning.

Assistant Chief Immigration Officer Jeannie Lewis said another four went missing, but were later found hiding on the centre compound.

The three migrants that escaped were found in the swamp area behind the centre less than two hours after they got away, Ms Lewis said.

Tuesday’s escape comes just a few days after 19 Cuban migrants being kept in the centre were sent back to their home country.
