Former Major Gen: Griffith should show more respect for Office of the PM

Commissioner of Police Gary Griffith has been slammed for his disrespectful approach and responses to matters involving the Prime Minister.

That’s according to former Chief of Defence Staff Major Gen Ralph Brown.

Brown, in a letter to the editor on Monday, said, “I am certain that Commissioner Griffith was not taught to be disrespectful of authority at the prestigious Sandhurst Military Academy that he so often reminds us he attended.

He called on Griffith to take some time to “rethink his position on this and other issues which have not gone unnoticed,” or resign immediately.

Brown said Griffith’s recent conduct was unacceptable and not expected from a military officer and the Commissioner of Police.

He said “If Commissioner Griffith felt so strongly about the issue, he should have sought an audience with the Prime Minister through his line minister, the Minister of National Security…Were he still a member of the Defence Force, this conduct would have been considered prejudicial to good order and military discipline.”
