The Independent Commission of Investigations (INDECOM) has refused to comment on allegations made by one of the two policemen freed of murder in the so-called death squad trial.

The policeman, Constable Collis ‘Chucky’ Brown, has charged that he is being punished by the INDECOM because of his refusal to do certain things.

Brown did not provide any details of what he claimed INDECOM asked him to do.

However, he asserted that he was arrested and charged after an exchange with the agency’s assistant commissioner Hamish Campbell at the army’s Up Park Camp headquarters.

When contacted yesterday about the accusation, INDECOM said it had no comment, indicating that Brown is involved in other related matters before the court.

Brown and Corporal Roan Morrison were found not guilty of murder and wounding with intent by a seven-member jury in the Home Circuit Court, yesterday after a near five-week trial.

They were arrested and charged by the INDECOM following a shooting incident in May Pen, Clarendon on February 13, 2010 in which 20-year-old Phaebian Dinnal was killed and another man injured.
