Rohee- No Police pervert, please
The Minister of Home Affairs Clement Rohee said it was alarming to note that in the wake of an ongoing allegation of sexual assault, yet to be determined, the Guyana Police Force (GPF) while it struggles to regain public confidence the Organization finds itself further embattled due to this alleged despicable act.
The Minister said he is awaiting the outcome of the investigation into the allegation of sexual assault of a young boy by Police Ranks in downtown Georgetown.
On Thursday, Nicholas Kisssoon, the teenager making the allegations attempted suicide but was rescued and taken into Police custody.
He has claimed that he was taken into the Police outpost just outside the Stabroek Market and sodomised by three Policemen, who has since been placed under close arrest.
The Minister of Home Affairs said that if proven guilty, such elements must be weeded out from the Ranks of the Guyana Police Force; They would not be worthy of wearing Police Uniforms.
The Ministry of Home Affairs has called on the Guyana Police Force (GPF) to pay closer attention to its recruitment procedures and screening practices when recruiting civilians into its ranks so as to ensure that perverts are not allowed entry into the Organization.
The Ministry of Home Affairs said it stands ready at all times to assist the Police Force in meeting its challenges but said the Force must come to grips with its administrative, and operational deficiencies and to embrace fully the current effort at reforms in the best interest of the Force in particular and the people.
