Newly appointed?chairman of the Police Services Commission (PSC), Guyson Mayers, should resign immediately.
That call has come from the Opposition following last Monday’s controversial decision to send Commissioner of Police Darwin Dottin on administrative leave.
Speaking at a Press briefing yesterday at the Opposition’s office in the Parliament Buildings, Leader of the Opposition Mia Mottley said she was against Mayers holding the position in the first place.
St Joseph MP Dale Marshall, St James Central MP Kerrie Symmonds and Senator Santia Bradshaw also attended the briefing.
Mottley said when she was consulted by Prime Minister Freundel Stuart in May about Mayers’ appointment, she wrote him a letter stating her concerns.
“I wrote back a letter on the 16th of April that pointed out my concern and my lack of ability to agree to the appointment of Mr Mayers, on the basis that Mr Mayers left the [Royal Barbados] Police Force at a rank that was junior to four of the five holders of senior posts in the Police Force today.?And it was argued that it was ill-advised to put a junior person to preside over the promotion and discipline of persons who were previously his superiors.”
