The Law Association of Trinidad and Tobago LATT wants an investigation done into allegations against the Commissioner of Police Gary Griffith related to recent newspaper articles. The LATT insists that the Police Complaints Authority (PCA) and/or the Police Service Commission (PSC) must intervene.
The LATT statement issued Sunday states in part: “If the story recounted to the journalist is false, that finding needs to be made public and bear the authority of the independent PSC and/or PCA.
”It undermines trust in the police service that serious allegations such as this, especially if false, should continue to hang over the Commissioner’s head.”
The association said if the allegations are true, then the PSC and/or PCA must say so and recommend appropriate action.
“Impunity on the part of any police officer, and in particular the head of the police service, must under no circumstances be tolerated.”
