Chairman of the Tobago Business Chamber, Martin George, is calling on politicians to display a high level of maturity following Thursday’s High Court ruling pertaining to the unconstitutionality of the acting appointment of Gary Griffith and Deputy Commissioner of Police McDonald Jacob.
Speaking in a video recording on Thursday, Mr George said the development creates what he described as a conundrum and an unfortunate circumstance for the country because it’s unprecedented as for the first time in the nation’s history there will be no one sitting in the office of Commissioner either through a substantive or active appointment.
Mr George said this situation calls for urgent demonstration of political maturity.
Mr George commented the seriousness of the leadership position of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service and the implications which can arise if it is not urgently addressed.
Mr George also suggested there be a review of the process to appoint a Commissioner of Police.
