The Police Service Commission (PSC) has set January 15, 2021, to meet with the senior police officers who approached the court blocking the year-end police promotions.

This was disclosed by Attorney General and Minister of Legal Affairs Anil Nandlall during the hearing of the case before Chief Justice (ag) Roxane Geroge today.

Nandlall told the Chief Justice that by meeting with the ranks, it would allow for the issue to be amicably resolved.

The AG pointed out that the PSC’s Chairman, Retired Assistant Commissioner Paul Slowe, is presently in Bangladesh performing duties with the West Indies Cricket board.

As a result, he noted that there would be a need for additional meetings following Friday’s engagement, given that country’s time difference.

“The Commission has expressed willingness to participate in the engagement, and we have a second meeting with all the parties together on Friday,” AG Nandlall said.

Notwithstanding the proceedings, Chief Justice George adjourned the hearing until February 5, 2021, at 14:00 hrs.

Senior Superintendent of Police Calvin Brutus had moved to the High Court, blocking the promotions of several ranks as he complained that the PSC was acting irrational and unlawful.

Following his High Court application, Chief Justice (ag) Roxane George issued a temporary order blocking the PSC from promoting several officers to Assistant Commissioner’s rank.

Meanwhile, a number of other officers have filed applications challenging the year-end promotions.
