Acting Top Cop, Atlee Rodney said the probe into allegations against Police Commissioner Wendel Robinson will be independently investigated.
Robinson has been suspended while allegations against him are investigated.
Rodney said, “I don’t know where the misinformation came from but it is not possible, it’s not legally correct, it’s not ethically correct that I would be acting in his position and at the same time investigating the matter against him”
“The normal procedure is that you would have an independent person to investigate a matter of that nature,” he told state media.
The Acting Commissioner said he would, however, have a say in choosing the investigator.
“We are still brainstorming and we’re still trying to identify a suitable and qualified person to handle this matter,” he said.
Yesterday, both the main opposition United Progressive Party and the new Democratic National Alliance called for an independent investigation after it was revealed that Rodney would lead the investigation.
