CAPI wants update on Irwin Point police misconduct probes

Published:Tuesday | March 25, 2014 | 9:39 AM

Concern is being raised about how long it has taken the authorities to tell the public their findings into allegations of police misconduct in the investigation of the rape of five women in Irwin Point, St James in 2012.

The concern is being raised by civil society group, Citizens Action for Principle and Integrity (CAPI).

The Police Commissioner, the Independent Commission of Investigations and the Office of the Public Defender had asked the group to provide a formal report on claims it made that the police had acted improperly.

Co-Convener of CAPI, Dennis Meadows, had claimed that photographs of the two men who were named as suspects were taken by the police and circulated days before a scheduled identification parade.

Meadows is now complaining that more than seven months have passed and there has been no word on the outcome of the investigations.

CAPI says it is urging the investigative bodies to make public their findings in the interest of transparency and accountability.
