New PSC to be sworn in today

The new members of the Police Service Commission were due to be sworn in this morning at President’s House, St Ann’s, by President Paula-Mae Weekes.

A divided House of Representatives approved five nominees sent by Weekes to constitute a new PSC last Wednesday.

This means that a new Police Commissioner could be named in the coming weeks.

The Opposition voted against the nominees, having said no appointments should be made until Weekes had explained why the CoP order of merit list had not reached Parliament for debate after it was sent from the former PSC head to the President, amid allegations of political interference.

The new PSC consists of retired judge Judith Jones, management consultant Maxine Attong, criminologist Ian Kevin Ramdhanie, accountant Maxine King and attorney Rajiv Persad.
