Corruption probe gains momentum
October 18, 2012 1:04 am
Nine police officers under investigation for alleged corruption have been formally inter-dicted, meaning they can’t interfere with investigations or speak to any witnesses.
Police Spokesperson, Ana Naisoro confirms the special task force investigating
the officers has been told to speed up its work.
“The Commissioner of Police has reiterated to the special taskforce that they have to carry out a thorough investigation into the allegation that was levelled against the senior officers. He has stated that the authority given to this investigation has to look into all avenues before any decision is made.”
The high ranking policemen were suspended three weeks ago after allegations of corruption surfaced.
Police are tight-lipped about the allegations.
The implicated officers are on reduced pay.
