The Independent Commission of Investigations (INDECOM) says it recommended criminal charges in 14 per cent of the cases it investigated involving the security forces last month.
However, INDECOM says it prescribed no criminal or disciplinary action in 61 per cent of the cases it resolved for the month of October, while disciplinary action was recommended in 16 per cent of the cases.
The commission says it prepared 44 reports for October, 27 of which recommended no criminal or disciplinary charges, while six recommended criminal charges and seven suggested disciplinary action.
In one case, INDECOM reported that a district constable based in an eastern parish was slapped with criminal charges after allegedly assaulting a civilian who had visited a police station to make a complaint regarding an incident at her home.
