mu­lated va­ca­tion leave.

The CoI con­cluded that Per­saud’s abil­ity to con­tinue to hold the post has be­come “un­ten­able” and rec­om­mended that he should be made to re­sign un­der terms con­sid­ered ap­pro­pri­ate by Pres­i­dent David Granger, or if he fails to do so, be re­moved for mis-be­hav­iour.

The rec­om­men­da­tion was made on the grounds that Per­saud had in­ter­fered in the probe of the al­leged as­sas­si­na­tion plot while he was on va­ca­tion leave and in­flu­enced the con­duct of the in­ves­ti­ga­tions; acted im­prop­erly by in- struct­ing that the brother of the sus­pect be sent on bail, thereby by­pass­ing the chain of com­mand; fail­ing to re­cuse him­self from the mat­ter although there was a con­flict of in­ter­est; and fail­ing to re­view the file on the mat­ter.

It was also rec­om­mended that Per­saud be in­ves­ti­gated for per­jury, as he had told the CoI that he first knew about the al­le­ga­tion af­ter 4 pm on March 29, although As­sis­tant Com­mis­sioner of Po­lice Clifton Hicken, who was then ‘A’ Di­vi­sion Com­man­der, claimed to have told him around 10 that morn­ing.
