Another cop charged for failing to give statement to INDECOM
Another policeman is to be charged for failing to give a statement to the Independent Commission of Investigations (INDECOM).
In a media release, INDECOM said the Director of Public Prosecutions has ruled that Constable Jevaney Turner be charged with breaching Section 33 of the INDECOM Act.
The matter relates to a complaint of assault alleged to have been committed by Turner.
He was reportedly twice issued a notice to furnish a statement.
However, INDECOM said the officer failed to provide a statement or comply with the notice.
Turner is the second cop to be charged this year for breaching the INDECOM Act.
Last month, a sergeant was convicted for a similar offence after he too refused to give a statement to INDECOM.
The investigations body is reminding members of law enforcement agencies to comply with the lawful obligations of the INDECOM Act.
