The Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) today lashed out at critics of her decision to discontinue the private criminal charge that was filed by a Woman Police Constable against Attorney Nirvan Singh over Singh’s alleged use of racist statements toward the Police Constable.
Last week, the DPP defended her decision to discontinue the case by indicating that the evidence in the case did not support the charge.
In a follow up statement today, the DPP’s office again defended the decision, but this time critics found themselves in the crosshairs of the DPP.
The DPP Chambers said it will continue to operate in accordance with the Constitution of Guyana and the relevant laws which are concerned in each case.
According to the DPP’s Office, it can boast of its professional approach to all cases receiving attention, and assures the public that it will continue to remain apolitical, and act in a lawful and professional manner devoid of any prejudices.
“The Office wishes to inform all persons that the DPP’s Office will not be intimidated or hindered by cheap and baseless attempts on partisan positions in carrying out its constitutional functions,” the DPP office explained.
Last Week, the charges against the Attorney who is the son of retired Chancellor Carl Singh, were dropped after the Court received a letter from the Office of the DPP indicating that the matter should be discontinued.
The decision came under heavy criticism from the Attorney for the Police Constable as well as the Political Opposition.
The Police Constable who filed the private criminal charge also staged a protest in front of the DPP’s office, declaring that the DPP has stripped her of her quest for justice.
