Cops say Kwame Mc Coy gun-butting, other assault cases with DPP
The office of the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) is in possession of various reports concerning the alleged assault of civilians at the hands of Liaison to the President, Kwame Mc Coy.
Among them is one concerning the alleged gun-butting of APNU activist, Clifton Stewart, by Mc Coy some three Saturdays ago, a senior police official disclosed yesterday.
According to the official, the report concerning Stewart was sent to the DPP’s office recently. However, Mc Coy has reportedly still not given investigators a written statement on this matter, although he had indicated that he would have done so.
Clifton Stewart, the alleged victim, gave investigators police a written statement and a medical document last Wednesday.
The police official pointed out that one has an option of refusing to give a statement.
Kaieteur News was also told that other assault allegations against the Liaison to President Jagdeo have also been sent to the DPP.
According to the source, one of the reports concerns allegations by a woman who claimed that Mc Coy struck her with his vehicle.
The source was unable to give a reason why there has been no further development in these matters, which occurred weeks ago, when, in contrast, police have already charged four men for allegedly wounding three Buxton youths last Wednesday.
In late October, 22-year-old Natalia Ross alleged that she was run over by a Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) driven by Mc Coy.
Roxanne McKenzie is terribly upset that McCoy is apparently being allowed to get off. The incident stemmed from an earlier altercation between volunteers from two major political parties over the erection of campaign material in Georgetown.
According to reports, volunteers from the ruling PPP/C were erecting posters on lamp posts along Regent Street when they were confronted by several persons who objected to the “obscuring of another party’s campaign material.”
This led to a heated argument and the PPP/C volunteers summoning McCoy. It allegedly ended with Mc Kenzie being struck by the SUV.
