Well placed sources within the Chambers of the Director of Public Prosecutors have confirmed that a
criminal charge would be laid against embattled Police Commissioner Henry Greene on Tuesday. Kaieteur News understands that Greene is expected to be charged with rape.
This newspaper was further told that Greene is expected to be arraigned on Tuesday at the Georgetown Magistrates Court before the Chief Magistrate Priya Beharry.
But when contacted last evening acting commissioner Leroy Brummell said that he was not yet aware of any recommendation from the DPP.
Crime Chief Seelall Persaud could not be reached.
The investigations stem from allegations made by a 34-year old woman who claimed that the Commissioner raped her in a city hotel back in November last year. Greene has denied the rape allegations, telling investigators that the sexual encounter with the woman was by mutual consent. But according to one investigator who asked not to be named, the question of consent is not one for the DPP to decide on.
Attorney at law Nigel Hughes who is representing the alleged victim yesterday told Kaieteur News that his client has not been notified about the possible charge.
Weighing heavily on the matter will be the woman’s initial statement, which she had given to local investigators at the Brickdam Police Station.
She told detectives, that after she had sought the assistance of the top cop to recover her cellular phone which was seized by the police, Greene subsequently invited her to his office to collect it. According to the investigator, the woman has indicated that “she did not go there off of her own.”
Greene is presently on leave to facilitate the rape investigation and Home Affairs Minister Clement Rohee has stated that his return as head of the Guyana Police Force would be based on the recommendations of the Director of Public Prosecutions.
