A month has already passed with no word from the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), Christopher Nelson on whether criminal charges would be laid on a Sergeant of Police in connection with an alleged sexual offence act.
This was revealed to reporters at a press briefing by Head of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the Royal Grenada Police Force (RGPF), Superintendent Earl Dunbar.
The CID Chief was responding to a question posed by THE NEW TODAY newspaper which had broken the story in April about the alleged act involving the middle-rank member of the police force.
Supt. Dunbar was asked to clear up the status of the investigation as the Sergeant was often seen in full uniform on traffic duty in the city.
“The file was sent to the DPP and we are still waiting on instructions from the DPP and that is as far as I can comment on that matter,” he said.
When contacted for an update, DPP Nelson indicated that it would take some time for him to complete the review of the files and to make a final determination in the matter.
The Sergeant of Police was investigated by CID for sexually assaulting a female student attending one of the nation’s secondary schools in St. George.
Speculation is rife that the policer officer is familiar with the student and might have been helping her financially to attend school.
THE NEW TODAY understands that the student brought to attention the issue, in light of a police-sponsored march in the city against child sexual abuse in the month of March.
