Suspended Commissioner of Police, Wendel Robinson is yet to respond to the Police Service Commission which wrote to him more than two weeks ago.
“We have sent a correspondence to him via email and we have not received any response to the email nor an acknowledgment, so there has been no response,” the commission’s lawyer Dr. Dorsett said.
“We wrote to him on behalf of the Commission…we are not aware of any action taken by Mr. Cheltenham in response to our letter to him.”
Through his lawyer, Sir Richard Cheltenham, Robinson had threatened to sue the state if his April 13 written demand for his reinstatement on or before April 20, was not met.
The Commission rejected Robinson’s demand and rebutted his argument that his suspension was unlawful.
On April 5, the Commission suspended Robinson and in the interim, his colleague, Atlee Rodney is the acting top cop.
Robinson, who is also a lawyer, threatened to sue the PSC which he said violated the law when is suspended him, by: “acting ultra vires; not complying with the rules of fair play, natural justice and due process; acting in a manner which is inconsistent with established practices and protocols; committing errors of law; failing to give any or any adequate reasons for the punitive steps taken; failing to take relevant considerations into account; abusing its authority; acting without administrative consistency and; violating the Commissioner’s legitimate expectations.”
