President, Dr. Irfaan Ali is calling on protestors to desist from any misconduct and to not act on misleading information but rather await the justice system to complete its work.
The President was speaking following protest by residents demanding justice for Quindon Bacchus, who was gunned down by police two weeks ago.
“I’m urging the residents who are on the road to please stick to the facts, do not be misled by any social media posting or any information that is not verified.”
The president assured residents that the officers are still in custody. He said the Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) is conducting its investigation. He further explained that the process has commenced and tremendous progress has been made.
Police Complaints Authority (PCA) Chairman, retired Justice William Ramlal’s is expected to present the findings of the investigation to the DPP by Monday.
“We must allow the system and the institution to work and complete their responsibility, this is independent, this is an independent process and I’m assured by the chairman who had advised me that very early in the new week, he’s hoping that by Monday he’d be in a position to present his report to the DPP,” the President explained to citizens.
Further, the President said there is no basis for the actions of the protesters. The President understands the need for justice and fairness but at the same time actions must be taken on factual information.
“I’m asking residents to please go home, to please clear the roadways, and to please allow the system to work.” ( DPI)
