THE LEGALITY of a letter which sent Commissioner of Police (COP) Darwin Dottin on forced retirement last Monday will be put to the test next week before Justice Margaret Reifer in the High Court.
Yesterday, Dottin’s lawyers, headed by Queen’s Counsel Elliott Mottley, along with a legal representative from the Solicitor General’s Office, held brief discussions in Justice Reifer’s chambers.
Dottin on Thursday filed judicial proceedings against the Police Service Commission (PSC) and the Governor General charging that the document which advised he was being required to retire in the public interest was flawed and unconstitutional.
The matter involving Acting Deputy Commissioner of Police Seymour Cumberbatch, in his challenge to halt the selection of a Deputy Commissioner of Police by the PSC, is also slated to be heard next week before Justice Reifer.
