RJR News / Commissioner of the Independent Commission of Investigations (INDECOM) Terrence Williams is not yet ready to say whether he will seek guidance from Parliament on how to proceed following Friday’s ruling by the Court of Appeal on whether the agency has the powers of arrest and prosecution.
The Court has said INDECOM does not have such powers under the relevant statute, but Mr. Williams has insisted that the ruling does not affect the agency’s ability, acting individually, to arrest and prosecute cops.
Director of Public Prosecutions Paula Llewellyn has suggested that Mr. Williams refer the issue to Parliament for a determination.
Mr. Williams on Monday said he was not yet prepared to speak on whether he will go that route.
The INDECOM Commissioner said he would advise as soon as he is ready to make a statement.
