Top cop: No to brutality

AN INTENSIVE PROBE has been launched into a recent report of police brutality and the police chief is insisting that no such conduct will be tolerated within the Royal Barbados Police Force (RBPF).

Acting Commissioner of Police Tyrone Griffith promised that “no stone will be left unturned” in investigating allegations that police officers severely beat Nazim Blackett two weeks ago.

A photograph of the 20-year-old lying in a blood stained cell was carried in the WEEKEND NATION on May 20.

According to his mother Tracey Blackett, Nazim was wheeled out of the District “A” Police Station on a stretcher and treated at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital for internal injuries, including bleeding in his lungs.
