Top cop under fire
SPORT SHOOTERS in Barbados filed papers with the Supreme Court yesterday afternoon seeking to have Acting Commissioner of Police Tyrone Griffith committed to Dodds Prison for allegedly refusing to carry out an order of the court.
But last night Griffith told the MIDWEEK NATION he was totally unaware of any action on his part or by individual police officers that could be construed as not following the instructions of the court, or of the documents filed yesterday seeking to jail him.
Bernard Chase, a competitive shooter who last month sought and obtained an injunction from the court preventing Griffith from refusing to renew gun licences listed as “For Use of Target Shooting Only”, is now asking that court to commit him for contempt, compel him to pay costs for the court action and grant any other relief it deemed fit.
