A Police Prosecutor in Grenada is under investigation for an alleged act of sexual molestation of an under-aged resident of the Bacolet Home for abused youngsters in St. Andrew.
Authoritative sources told THE NEW TODAY that the member of the Royal Grenada Police Force (RGPF) was picked up a few days ago and questioned by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) in connection with the alleged incident.
A source who spoke on condition that he was not identified said that the officer in question has been transferred from the Prosecution Department to a police station on the western side of the island.
The incident comes against the backdrop of recent disclosures by THE NEW TODAY of several senior police officers being accused of forcing female officers to have sexual intercourse with them with promises of promotion and those who refuse are subjected to acts of reprisals such as putting them to work on the midnight to morning shift.
Police Commissioner Edvin Martin summoned all female police officers to a meeting just over a month ago to hear from them on allegations levelled against senior officers from the rank of Inspector to as far as the Police High Command.
During the meeting, the island’s chief cop announced the setting up of a three-member Committee headed by an acting female Superintendent of Police to collect information from female officers on those officers who are engaged in such acts.
The source said that the alleged victim from the Bacolet Home met with the member of the Prosecution Department in preparation for an upcoming case.
“That little girl, he put her in an office by herself and the young lady complained that he touched her up so CID picked him up in a hush-hush way – they interviewed him and released him and then they transferred him forthwith…,” he remarked.
CID investigations into such matters are usually sent to the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) to determine whether criminal charges should be pressed against suspects.
THE NEW TODAY understands that the wife of the Police Prosecutor, now the subject of a sexual-related offense investigation, is also a member of RGPF.
Another police insider stated that it was time for something to be done as RGPF is infested with a number of sex predators.
He said the same police prosecutor who has been transferred to another posting was also caught some time ago naked inside his vehicle with an Imani and is known to be the lover of a female clerk in the St George’s Magistrate’s court.
Police insiders have said that the officer’s name is also calling with a schoolgirl attached to a secondary school in the St George area.
