Minister of Home Affairs in Discussion With Top Cop Over Alleged Drug Link Allegations
As allegations continue to surface with regards to the alleged links of two senior police officers in the drug trade the home affairs minister Clement Rohee said that he is now engaging the commissioner of Police Henry Greene on the issue.
During a meeting last week, commander of B division Steve Merai who himself has been entangled in several serious allegations, told the commissioner of police that there were at least two officers who were linked to persons in the drug underworld.
Home Affairs minister Clement Rohee said that the fact that the allegations were made by another member of the force and were made in print adds a greater degree of seriousness to the matter.
One of the officers at the center of the allegation has since tendered his resignation, but capitol news understands that an investigation by the police is underway in the matter.
The Guyana police force has been claiming that it has been finding ways to deal with those officers who run afoul of the law.
