Police appeal promotion ruling
FOURTEEN SENIOR POLICE officers have lodged 18 grounds of appeal following a High Court judge’s decision to throw out their challenge to being omitted from promotion four years ago.
The officers, who ranged in rank from sergeant to superintendent, are charging that, among other things, Madame Justice Margaret Reifer “erred in law in finding that there was no contravention of the law as it pertained to the acts of the Police Service Commission (PSC) in the manner in which it dealt with the names of the officers who were recommended for promotion”.
In her decision last December 23, Reifer ruled there was no evidence supporting the assertion that the PSC had acted unreasonably or arbitrarily in the promotion process. (TS)
