Probation for prison escort firm

PUBLISHED April 13, 2004

The roll-out of a new prisoner transport procedure has been put on probation by the justice minister.

The move by Cathy Jamieson came after the mistaken release of murderer James McCormick from a court last week. He was taken to Hamilton Sheriff Court by private security firm Reliance Custodial Services but was released in error by guards and is still at large.
