A senior police official said he fully supports having a police officer investigate his colleague for wrong doings, but this does not mean he is not open to the idea of having an independent body to do this.

Acting Deputy Police Commissioner Severin Moncherry who appeared on a television talk show dubbed Police Insight aired on MBC Television on Sunday said the current system works.

“I see no reason why police officers should not investigate the police,” he opined.

The Police Complaints Commission is currently responsible for investigating these complaints.

However, Moncherry said he would also support the establishment of an independent body to investigate complaints out of concern about ‘public perception.’

The senior police official noted also that in order for this body to be established, legislative framework will have to be put in place.

To support his argument that the current system is working, Moncherry said 7 police officers have been charged with criminal offences to date and are currently on suspension.

He said there is also record to prove that several police officers have been arrested and convicted for various crimes.

    • Yeah right. Choops. Putting the cat to watch the cheese. Who will guard the guards? An independent, civilian body would attract more credibility.
