Attorney-at-law David Comissiong has accused Police Commissioner Darwin Dottin of personally attacking him, following calls for foreign help in investigating the police killing of a young man earlier this month.
Comissiong, who represents the family of deceased Jamar Maynard, has taken issue with comments made by Dottin in rejecting his requests for a foreign investigator to be brought in to lead the probe and for the officer who pulled the trigger to be suspended.
In his response to the calls made in an April 11 letter and in an interview with the SATURDAY SUN, Dottin said local systems were robust enough to ensure there was no cover-up and questioned whether Comissiong’s “comments on issues like this are sufficiently balanced” given that he was silent when two police officers were shot in the line of duty last year.
Comissiong has since written a second letter to the police chief expressing surprise at his reaction. (DP)
