A HIGH COURT judge has halted the interview process for the selection of a new Deputy Commissioner of Police.
Justice Dr Sonia Richards made the ruling during a hearing in chambers yesterday in which Acting Deputy Commissioner of Police Seymour Cumberbatch has filed an injunction to halt the selection process to fill the vacant deputy post.
Last month, the Police Service Commission (PSC) had interviewed six officers ranging in rank from inspector to assistant commissioner to fill the number two post in the Police Force.
And at least one other interview was conducted this week by the PSC.
But Justice Richards ordered the process be stopped and adjourned the matter for a full hearing at a later date. (TS/BA)
