Acting Commissioner of Police Gary Griffith says that he has been instructed to remain on leave by the Minister of National security Fitzgerald Hinds.
He revealed that he has been told that he must remain on leave until further notice.
However he has stated that the National security Minister does not have the authority to do so.
In a voice note, Griffith explained that it is quite obvious that Hinds has been ill advised on the issue.
Griffith has been on vacation after applying for leave two months ago.
His contract as commissioner ended in August.
His successor has not yet been announced.
Last Tuesday it was reported that Griffith was on leave for the week which began the preceding Sunday, and Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) McDonald Jacob would act as commissioner in his absence.
