Photo credit; flags.netBRADES, Montserrat (GIU) –The Royal Montserrat Police Service has been conducting an extensive internal investigation into allegations of police misconduct during and following the arrests of George Leonard and George Farrell on the morning of 17 December 2011. As a result of the investigation, one officer has been suspended from duty and another is on compulsory leave pending further investigation. The Governor has decided that, in addition to the very comprehensive internal investigation undertaken to date, he should activate the provisions of a co-operation agreement on reciprocal law enforcement assistance between the Caribbean Overseas Territories. This will enable law enforcement officers from the Bermuda and Cayman police services to come to Montserrat to assist in the on-going investigation under the command and direction of Deputy Commissioner Paul Morris and present their findings to the Director of Public Prosecutions through the Governor. The police officers should begin their work early next week.by Nerissa Golden Caribbean News Now Share Share
