As­sas­si­na­tion plot in­quiry ex­posed ‘se­ri­ous de­fi­cien­cies’ in po­lice force

Stabroek News Sunday - - GLOBAL GOSSIP -

Pres­i­dent David Granger yes­ter­day said that the re­cently-con­cluded Com­mis­sion of In­quiry (CoI) into the al­leged as­sas­si­na­tion plot against him has ex­posed se­ri­ous de­fi­cien­cies and weak­nesses in the Guyana Po­lice Force that have to be cor­rected.

Ac­cord­ing to a state­ment is­sued by the Min­istry of the Pres­i­dency, Granger made it clear that the CoI was not meant to be a witch-hunt, but said that work has to be done to en­sure that the po­lice force is more pro­fes­sional and ef­fi­cient in the ex­e­cu­tion of its du­ties and re­spon­si­bil­i­ties. He added that its find­ings point to some crit­i­cal ar­eas, which will need to be ad­dressed as part of se­cu­rity sec­tor re­form.
