Still no DPP report on Knight case
A LAWYER REPRESENTING THE family of Selwyn “Blues” Knight is disappointed that more than three weeks after his killing by an off-duty policeman a report has not been sent to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).
“I am extremely disappointed that the investigation is taking so long,” Queen’s Counsel Andrew Pilgrim told the DAILY NATION yesterday.
“The (Commissioner of Police) has assured me in writing that it (report) will soon be forwarded to the DPP, but meanwhile, the person who shot my clients in their backs is still at work.
“If a public servant is charged with stealing, he is suspended. Is there any reason for this special treatment? Shouldn’t he be suspended pending the investigation? ”
Pilgrim said the public and Knight’s family should be allowed to “feel confidence in the system and to believe that we don’t have one set of laws for the police and another set for ordinary Barbadians.” (TS)
