PPP fails to back up claims of misconduct against senior rank


AFTER alleging that a senior police detective engaged in unprofessional conduct, People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) Executive Secretary Zulfikar Mustapha and General Secretary Clement Rohee told Police on Monday that they had no evidence in this regard.In a statement on its Facebook page, the PPP/C had called for an immediate investigation to be launched into the conduct of the detective. The party at the time claimed that there were audio and video recordings implicating the detective. In that statement, identity of the rank was disclosed.

But Police Headquarters, in a statement, said that when the ranks of the Office of Professional Responsibility visited Freedom House to interview party leaders, those leaders had nothing to substantiate their claims.

Initially, when the issue first arose through a broadcast on TV Channel 67, News Reporter Travis Chase had also stated that he had nothing of evidential value to offer when approached by the police, Police Headquarters stated.
