PUBLIC NEEDS MORE INFO ON HIGH PROFILE CRIME CASES

Attorney Martin George is criticising the nation’s Protective Services for failing to adequately inform the public on high profile cases.

Referring to the ongoing investigation into the murder of Senior Counsel Dana Seetahal in May last year, Mr. George said while officers cannot release sensitive information pertaining to a case, the public needs to be assured that work is being done.

“My personal view differs a bit from the hierarchy of the Police Service and the Ministry of National Security which at times has tended to say ‘look you can’t say anything because this is a matter of national security.’ I’m sorry, I don’t buy that. You look at how investigations are conducted anywhere around the world, the hierarchy of the police and the defence apparatus, they are able to give you credible updates, they say, ‘this is the lead we are following, we are doing this.’ They may not give you the nuts and bolts of it but at least they give that sent of assurance. Here we just put a blanket cloak on everything and say, ‘oh we can’t discuss it, it’s a matter of national security.'”
