Prime Minister Denies Instructing the PSC
Wednesday 14th March, 2018 – Prime Minister Gaston Browne is denying reports that he has instructed the Police Service Commission not to investigate reports of sexual misconduct involving a member of the top brass of the police force.
The allegations were outlined in a newspaper article last week of the cop, allegedly making sexual overtures to several young officers.
In today’s edition of the newspaper, Prime Minister Gaston Browne is accused of interference. In a front page article captioned “PSC Cops out of Sex Probe,” the newspaper reported that “ A source close to the matter, who spoke on condition of anonymity out of fear of reprisal, said the PSC met with Prime Minister Gaston Browne on Monday and he rubbished the claims and does not support an investigation.”
“The source said that Browne pointed out that the complaints from the three junior ranks and an applicant to the force are not “official” because they were not reported as crimes to the police and it is one person’s word against another.”
Prime Minister Gaston Browne has responded to the newspaper article, describing the contents as fabricated.
