Dec 17, 2011 News Comments Off on Women Lawyer’s Association says …Police Commissioner should go on leave, allow rape probe to proceed
The Guyana Women’s Lawyer’s Association has spoken out against the Police Commissioner Henry Greene and the present allegations before him.
The association said that the allegation is a very serious one and requires an immediate and thorough investigation by the Guyana Police Force.
It was further stated by the members that they were surprised that to date Mr. Greene has not proceeded on administrative leave which he should have done forthwith.
They stressed that Greene, who is an attorney-at-law, ought to know that he should not be performing the duties of head of the Guyana Police Force while the said Police Force is investigating an allegation made against him.
The group believes that justice and fairness require that Mr. Greene is not on the job while the investigation is being carried out. In the circumstances the association is urging the Commissioner to immediately remove himself from the Office of the Commissioner of Police so the public can have some confidence in the independence of the investigative process.
The police are currently probing the report from the 34-year-old woman after she has claimed that she was raped by Commissioner Henry Greene.
The woman who hails from the East Coast of Demerara made the report to police at the Brickdam Station on Tuesday afternoon in the presence of attorney at law Nigel Hughes.
She is alleging that she was forced to have sex with Greene after she was induced with cash and a promise to assist her in a matter that is presently engaging the attention of the police.
