The Police Welfare Association could meet as early as this week to discuss a letter in which a sergeant of police complained about the interaction between his wife – also a police officer — and acting Commissioner of Police Colin John.
Head of the PWA, Sergeant Brenton Smith, told iWitness News on Sunday that he received the letter on Friday, but was yet to discuss it with his executive.
He declined to disclose the contents of the letter beyond saying that the policeman had given the police chief seven days to respond to a matter allegedly involving the aggrieved officer’s wife.
“It would be premature for me to say more before meeting the executive,” Smith told iWitness on Sunday.
Other media outlets in SVG have published various claims about various allegations reportedly made either by the policeman or his wife, allegedly against John.
At the time of publishing this article, John was yet to respond to a request for a comment sent earlier Sunday evening.
It is the second time in just over a week that the acting police chief, a lawyer and former prosecutor, is making headlines for the wrong reasons.
Earlier this month, John denied beating suspended Police Constable Ettian Charles after Charles was arrested during the investigation of the robbery of Resha Twana Browne-Caesar, wife of Minister of Agriculture, Saboto Caesar.
