Wendell Robinson’s termination hearing, scheduled for October 31, 2019, has been postponed to November 14, 2019 after Robinson presented a sick certificate and requested more time so that he could answer to each specific allegation made against him in a letter from the PSC.
This was decided after the initial hearing on his termination was held on Friday, October 25th, 2019.
According to Robinson, doctors have advised him to stay away from stressful environments for the next three weeks.
The Commissioner of Police may face termination because of, as described by the Police Service Commission, his temperament and his fractious relationship with the Minister with responsibility for the police.
This was all in a letter addressed to Robinson, dated October 15th, 2019 where other details were included: “The Police Service Commission is minded to terminate your service as Commissioner of Police in the public interest”.
Robinson was first suspended in April 2018 following allegations of improper conduct leveled against him by two junior officers and a civilian.
On October 2018, Robinson was slapped with two internal charges for discreditable and oppressive conduct.
The embattled top cop insists that those charges do not apply to him “because Special Constables have no authority to investigate disciplinary charges, more so to prefer charges against me.”
The court ruled that week that the section under which Robinson was suspended could not apply to an officer with the rank of Inspector or higher.
