Police officers investigating the accident involving the Chief of Staff of the Prime Minister are now being investigated by the RSIPF’s Professional Standards and Internal Investigations after concerns were raised to the Police by the public and the Opposition.
Commissioner of Police (Ag) Mostyn Mangau reveals that the PSII is now carrying out the investigation after a lot of people had complained to the police including the Leader of Opposition, Matthew Wale.
“We have continue to receive concerns from the public including the leader of opposition and the matter is now being referred to the PSII,” he said.
He explains that the PSII would conduct an inquiry into the investigation process that was conducted by Traffic officers in this matter.
Mangau promises to inform the public on the outcome of the investigation by PSII.
“If there is a breach into the investigation process then RSIPF will deal with it,” he assures the public.
The public has raised concerns on the length of the time it had taken before the Chief of Staff, Robson Djokovic, was charged. It had taken five days before the Traffic Department charged Djokovic with careless driving. Three officers were investigating the accident.
The public has also raised concerns on breathalyzer test result carried on Djokovic which according to police was within the legal requirement.
Mangau said all these claims will be subject to the investigations.
