General Secretary of the the People’s Progressive Party and former Home Affairs Minister, Clement Rohee is convinced that the Guyana Police Force is now paying attention to the public’s voice and advice in the fight against crime and that may be responsible for many of the recent success.
“There was a time when everything civilian was ignored and disregarded to the detriment of successful investigation and prosecution. Making effective use of human intelligence and civilian common sense is the way to go”, Rohee declared as he congratulated the Criminal Investigations Department and the Police Force for their recent crime solving successes.
The Guyana Police Force’s CID has been coming in for high praise by the Government and now the Opposition for its ability so solve a number of cases that had been placed on the back burner.
Just on Sunday, the Police Force was able to solve a six year murder investigation after finding the skeletal remains of Babita Sarjoy who had gone missing in 2010 after leaving home to view the Diwali motorcade. Her reputed husband and his friend are expected to be charged for the murder.
Mr. Rohee today offered high praise for Crime Chief Wendell Blanhum and said it is time for him to be promoted to Assistant Commissioner of Police.
“Blanhum and his team at CID, are to be commended. He should be considered for promotion immediately from Senior Superintendent to Assistant Commissioner of Police. The Crime Chief must at all times be of the rank of an Assistant Commissioner. However, Blanhum must at all times refuse instructions and directives of a non-professional and political nature.”
