I was at Mr. Emmanuel’s home on the morning when the police arrived and I saw and heard the police speaking to him. I do not know why the commissioner would say that” he said.There is a mystery and a lack of clarity around the situation with respect to one of the persons of interest.“The Police Chief has given the impression that he doesn’t know where the individual is, he has to make arrangements with his colleagues to contact him, yet we heard an interview that the individual is not in hiding and he is willing to come back…the public needs answers in this regard,” he said.He said the police must question Senior Council Anthony Astaphan regarding his role in all this.James said the authorities must get independent investigators to asist them in investigating this situation, and that the public lacks confidence in the local authorities.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more
