Clean the rot in police prosecution

Letters, Normal

The National, Tuesday December 17th, 2013

 IN reference to the article “Reinstate Gibson, lawyer says” (Dec 5), the court has discharged four fraud-related charges against him and the fact that the police prosecution section could not provide any evidence is absurd. 

A lot of evidences have been compiled by police investigators, internal and external auditors, informers and whistle blowers, but the police prosecution section seems to be suppressing and sweeping things under the carpet. 

This is not the first time and there have been a lot of high-profile cases that have been thrown out on similar circumstances. 

The government is fighting corruption head-on, but this element of the police force is not in tune and seems hell-bent on promoting corruption. 

I’d like the police commissioner and the Task Force Sweep team to investigate  the police prosecution section and get rid of  undisciplined and irresponsible staff. 

The commissioner must overhaul the section so that it becomes a team that fights corruption.
