Superintendent Cuffy Williams investigating alleged leak of documents in a case involving a minor sets his sight on the CID
Superintendent Cuffy Williams who is investigating the alleged leak of documents in a case involving a minor, appears to have set his sights on the CID, as part of the focus of his investigation. He says this situation is a serious indictment on the police force, and promises he will thoroughly investigate the alleged leak.
Cuffy told state-owned DBS radio, “I received the orders from the Commissioner of Police to carry out an investigation into the breach that has been committed in the CID (Criminal Investigation Department), I suppose”. Court Reporter, Carlisle Jno Baptiste, has more details.
The documents in question relate to a case of alleged inappropriate behaviour of two high-profile men and an underage child. The documents have spread through social media and concerns were raised that the leak could seriously compromise and prejudice the case.
Cuffy stated that he will first look at the area where the alleged breach took place. He added “I will be interviewing various persons pertaining to that breach & then I will come to a conclusion & forward the results to the Chief of Police,” he remarked.
He stated at that in all his years of service, he has never seen a thing of this nature. “It is a serious indictment on the force,” he noted. “In my 38 years of service, this is the first time that such thing has happened, and yes I support the Chief’s statement that it is an indictment on the police force…”
Cuffy noted that investigating the matter is not a “good day” for him.
“But I can assure you and I can assure the public that I will carry out a thorough investigation into the alleged breach,” he said.
Meantime, Jno Baptiste says everyone should be concerned about this breach.
