Senator Mary Isaac is calling on the relevant authorities to appoint someone to the position of acting Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) to take action on the IMPACS report.
The incumbent DPP Victoria Charles-Clark is currently on preretirement leave and is expected to vacate the post in March next year. Charles-Clark said she was not furnished with evidence requested for the IMPACS investigation.
Isaac said when a public office bearer goes on preretirement leave they are usually replaced by someone else. “It doesn’t matter that the person has moved on, the office remains and the office must be staffed,” Isaac explained.
The former trade unionist also said that the IMPACS report should be made available to the opposition, the Governor General and other key individuals and institutions.
Isaac noted that some persons who have allegedly been named in the report have not seen it.
The IMPACS report was compiled based on an investigation into the alleged extra-judicial killings by some members of the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF).
