It seems that this is the senior officer who was recently accused of corruption by some junior officers. It also seems that he is indeed 'Granger's boy' as he is still on the job committing further corrupted acts. Until Granger does something about this officer, he is in effect being complicit. Maybe this is why those fools above are petitioning Jagdeo for justice instead.
"The President's boy"
As you are aware by now Melly Mel who has made it her mandate to highlight the wrongs executed by a private health institution in Guyana by publishing personal stories sent by persons accross the country, most females, was detained for over 12 hours by police at CID Headquarters, Georgetown and practically harrassed.
It is also public knowledge now that after her release Melly Mel confirmed with several media outlets including the Stabroek News and Guyana Chronicle that instructions were given directly by the Crime Chief Lyndon Alves to keep her in custody over night and not be placed on bail.
"The Scoop" finds this alarming development as a means of surpressing free speech in what was thought to be a democratic country that allows freedom of speech.
However, what is even more worrying is the fact that this senior officer is once again misusing his power vested to him by the David Granger administration.
Let's take it back to the year 2017.
Four year old Ramkarran Mohan of Tuschen Village, East Bank Essequibo was struck down and dragged under the wheels of a reckless driver, to his death.
The driver of that car was the DAUGHTER OF THE CRIME CHIEF LYNDON ALVES. She was identified as Grace Alves. He was an Assistant Commissioner when that accident occured but had used his influence to intervene and help his daughter while the relatives of the toddlers struggled for justice.
His daughter was detained after the accident but was released the very day on a meagre $20,000 bail. Months had passed, relatives protested that they feared justice would not be served since the driver had major link in the Guyana Police Force. An inquest was ordered months later and the then Commander of D division had said that a coroner had to be sought.
The matter died down and it is now 2019.
The Crime Chief personally gave instructions to have Melly Mell detained and denied bail but readily had his daughter who KILLED A CHILD DUE TO HER RECKLESS DRIVING released on only $20,000 station bail. She is roaming freely to this day as he sits at the helm of the force.
The Scoop read in a Stabroek News article that he boasted "I am the President's boy".
Well, THE COUNTRY IS LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING WHETHER THE PRESIDENT CONDONES INJUSTICE AND ABUSE OF POWER.
LET US NOT FORGET THE MANY OTHER ALLEGATIONS OF CORRUPT PRACTICES EXECUTED BY THIS VERY MAN PUBLISHED BY THE MEDIA RECENTLY
A CHILD IS DEAD, A KILLER IS FREE, A ACTIVIST WAS HARRASSED AND A CRIME CHIEF IS POWER DRUNK.
