Commissioner of Police Owen Ellington is refuting suggestions that he is yet to honour a request for a statement from him in the corruption case against the three high-profile Jamaicans.
Senior Superintendent of Police James Forbes and businessman Bruce Bicknell are charged with attempting to pervert the course of justice while Parliamentarian Daryl Vaz is charged with breaches of the Corruption Prevention Act.

In a statement this afternoon, the commissioner said he is aware of comments made in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court today by Deputy Director of Public Prosecution, Dirk Harrison, concerning an outstanding statement.
Harrison told the court that a case file was complete except for a statement from the Commissioner of Police.
"Based on some intelligence we have we need a statement from the commissioner," the prosecutor said.
But Commissioner Ellington says neither the office of the deputy director of public prosecution nor the investigator in this matter has requested a statement from him.

The Commissioner says he does not know or have any interest in knowing who the individual investigator in the matter is.
He also says his only interest is that a fair and professional investigation is carried out.
