Public Safety Minister Steadroy “Cutie” Benjamin has said that an example needs to be made of the police officers under whose supervision an alleged serial killer escaped.
Benjamin spoke on Pointe FM on Tuesday, after he received a report into the matter, which is also part of an investigation by the Professional Standards Unit of the police force.
The minister said the investigation “must be taken seriously to set an example to others that when they perform their duty, it must be done in a manner that is professional and beyond the public scrutiny.”
Benjamin who is also Attorney General says the matter “will not go unpunished.”
“You have to set examples and this one requires immediate action,” he added.
Delano Forbes has been on the run for over a week now since escaping police custody. Even though he was shackled, Forbes managed to escape the custody of five police officers.
A reward of five thousand dollars has been offered for people who have information leading to his arrest.
Police charged Forbes with three murders, alleging that he drank his victim’s blood after killing them.
