St Thomas PNP councillor, businessman slapped with corruption charge
Jovan Johnson, Gleaner Writer
The St. Thomas police have charged People’s National Party (PNP) councillor for the Morant Bay Division, Rohan Bryan with attempting to pervert the course of justice.
Head of the St. Thomas Police Deputy Superintendent, Charmaine Shand, said a businessman, Ludlow McWhinny was also charged with the same offence.
He reportedly operates a block factory and restaurant in the parish.
Shand told The Gleaner/Power 106 News Centre that both men are to appear before the Morant Bay Resident Magistrate’s Court today.
She says the men were investigated for their alleged questionable interaction with the complainant in a sex case involving a pastor from the parish.
Last week, the Director of Public Prosecutions ruled that the men be charged.
In the lead up to the ruling, the St Thomas Police had interviewed the councillor, an act that drew a firestorm of criticisms from other PNP councillors in the parish.
The councillors publicly berated Superintendent Shand and questioned her competence to lead the St Thomas Police Division.
