Red flag’ ignored
AN OFFICER, whose name was linked to corrupt activity, was never discussed by Commissioner of Police Darwin Dottin when that name came up amid the highest ranks of the Royal Barbados Police Force (RBPF).
This was part of the evidence given by retired deputy commissioner Bertie Hinds yesterday, one of three witnesses, including Acting Commissioner Tyrone Griffith, who testified in the Supreme Court in the case brought by over a dozen police officers challenging their non-promotion.
Hinds, under cross-examination by Alair Shepherd QC, told the court that the efficiency and general conduct of Sergeant Errol Ellis, one of the applicants, was in question. (Coastline Communication)
