Queens Counsel Sir Richard Cheltenham has given the Police Service Commission until April 20, 2018, to reinstate suspended Commissioner of Police Wendel Robinson.
Robinson was suspended on April 5 as the commission investigates complaints against him.
In his letter addressed to Chairman of the Police Service Commission Sir Richard argues that the suspension of Robinson was unlawful.
The lawyer for Robinson argues that the Commission has no authority to suspend the commissioner without having first laid a complaint or charge against him.
The QC argues that due process was not followed because Robinson, who is also a lawyer, was not afforded an opportunity to comment on the allegations made against him before the suspension.
The veteran lawyer wants Robinson reinstated effective April 5, the day of his suspension.
