INDECOM Boss Defends Commission’s Track Record After Court Finds ‘Death Squad’ Cops Not Guilty


Commissioner of the Independent Commission of Investigations, INDECOM, Terrence Williams, is defending the oversight body’s investigative track record after another case of murder it brought against two members of the Constabulary ended with a not guilty verdict.

Detective Corporal Kevin Adams and Constable Jerome White, were freed of murder charges on Tuesday after a jury found them not guilty of the 2012 killing of Anthony ‘Toby’ Trought.

It’s the second time this year that Corporal Adams was freed of murder charges.

Mr. Williams is also calling for changes to the legal system that would give agencies like INDECOM the same powers the police have to bring cases before the court.
