There is no need for foreign investigators to be brought in to probe the deaths of the two suspects in Andrea Bharatt’s kidnap and murder.
The Law Association of T&T made the call for international investigators.
However, Senior Counsel Israel Khan said the Police Complaints Authority (PCA) has already started an independent investigation into the deaths of suspects Andrew Morris and Joel Balcon.
Khan said he was “in total disagreement with my association’s call for foreign police to investigate the deaths. “The Police Complaint Authority has already commenced an independent investigation into the suspects’ deaths and the investigators attached to the PCA are not police officers, so there are no conflicts of interests.”
Khan added that “the PCA is not ‘bonded’ to the reports by other law enforcement agencies like the Homicide Bureau, Police Professional Standards Bureau,” and it had the necessary powers for an in-depth investigation.
