Deputy Superintendent of Police, Albert Diah, has been convicted for breaching the INDECOM Act.
DSP Diah was convicted when he appeared today in the Spanish Town Resident Magistrate’s Court.
He’ll be sentenced on November 20.
He’d been charged with failing to comply with a lawful request by INDECOM without lawful justification or excuse.
And, obstructing the Commission in the exercise of its duties.
He’d been charged in November last year.
This is the second INDECOM-related matter to be completed in the courts. It’s also the Commission’s second conviction.
DSP Diah was charged after he failed to hand over firearms to INDECOM which were used by police officers involved in a fatal shooting in Macca Tree St. Catherine.
INDECOM says they were to be handed over for ballistic testing.
