The entire handling of the Gary Griffith issue could serve to erode confidence in the independence of independent institutions.
So says attorney-at-law Senior Counsel Timothy Hamel-Smith.
He made the assertion while speaking with Power 102 Digital this morning.
There have been questions over the last few days as to whether Mr Griffith should have been serving as Acting Commissioner of Police after his contract had ended and also over the role of the National Security Minister in determining whether Mr Griffith should return to the post following his vacation.
Mr Hamel-Smith explained that the entire fiasco looms over the Police Service Commission.
He added that it the way in which the matter has been handled could lead to speculation over political interference.
