La Corbiniere committed to fighting police corruption

By SNO Staff

National Security Minister Victor La Corbiniere.

National Security Minister Victor La Corbiniere has admitted that there is some level of corruption within the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF) and said he is committed to having them weeded out.

La Corbiniere said while this may be the case for some officers, the RSLPF is a good institution and has people who on the other hand are committed to serving their country.

The minister’s comments comes in light of reports that three police officers were recently charged for financial irregularities unearthed at the Richfond Police Station.

La Corbiniere said he will not interfere with the investigations, but noted his commitment in fighting corruption at all levels to reduce the chances of it getting out of control.

The three police officers were formally charged in connection with the disappearance of approximately $4,000 from the Richfond Police Station in Dennery in 2010.

The missing funds are monies from maintenance and commitment warrants.

One officer who was charged with false attestation, could serve a maximum of two years behind bars if convicted.

What about those like yourself who bend all the rules for your friends and its only when its a poor man with no clout then the have to follow rules and regulations. Same old bs talk, talk, talk. Corruption you say? Smh only way to stop it is by first looking in the mirror you people in authority
