I have been following very closely, almost every article published in the newspapers on the developments of the case involving the Commissioner of Police who allegedly sexually abused a citizen of this country.
I guess some can recall sometime in August of 2008 the headline captured “Traffic cop sexually molested three year old son.”
I’m the accused. Unlike the Commissioner whom as I read in one article refused to answer certain questions put forwards to him by media personalities, I could recall going to Kaieteur News where I cleared up points that were alleged and stating briefly my side of what actually transpired.
I was open to investigators so as to prove my innocence but to no avail; I was pushed around so many times making my way from the Childcare Protection Agency to the Criminal Investigations Department- Eve Leary, where no satisfactory answers were given to me on the developments of the case.
I was even deprived from seeing the said Commissioner as I tried on one occasion and was told that I have to follow the chain of command and deal with persons who were directly involved in the investigation process.
I was in turn treated like dirt. I faced many embarrassing moments as I faced up to slandering remarks made by persons within the said organisations and many within the general public who know me by being pointed out by some of my colleagues.
It wasn’t long after as I continued to prove that I was innocent, I was told that the said Commissioner gave an order that I be placed under close arrest. There I could recall vividly spending four days in the T.S.U lock ups. As the file was still then at the DPP chamber.
Shortly after being released from close arrest the file returned with instructions from the DPP where I was then charged with two counts of an indictable sexual offence and a summary offence of assault causing actual bodily harm, which two ranks of the said CID headquarters alleged that they saw me slap my child.
I can clearly recall the horrific days I spent at the Camp Street Prison as I was on remand from February 10, 2009 for almost five months.
It was until in September of the said year, after attending court on several occasions, the prosecutor retrieved the file from the DPP where the police were advised to withdraw charges laid against me on the sexual offences and continue the proceedings on the summary offence.
At the court I was found guilty of the lesser count of assault being contrary to section 21 of the summary jurisdiction (offences) act Chapter 8:02 .
Whereas I admitted in court to hitting my child with a rag under his cheek and by doing so there were no marks of violence inflicted to the child as stated by the police which caused them to charge me for assault causing actual bodily harm.
The case was then reprimanded and discharged. I later received a notice signed by the said Commissioner (who now faces allegations of sexual abuse) ordering my dismissal from the Guyana Police Force with effect from August 16, 2010 to which the said notice state that I was found guilty of assault causing actual bodily harm. Contrary to section 30(a) of the summary jurisdiction (offences) Act Chapter 8:02. (As was charged).
Noticing my faulty dismissal from the job I so loved and how I have been deprived from continuing my service as a fair and just policeman as many could admit, I eagerly look forward to action to be taken appropriately when allegations of such are made against such ones whom by use or abuse of their powers have caused me somewhat distress; as I see this as my reward. The scripture says “For everything, there’s an appointed time”.
