For a second week running the Minister of Information, Senator Sandrea Falconer, has told journalists the Cabinet has not discussed the issue of the shock early retirement of Police Commissioner, Owen Ellington.

However, Ms Falconer says the Cabinet was presented with a report outlining the reasons given by Ellington for leaving the post.

She says the Executive did not receive or discuss any report concerning pressure being brought to bear on the administration by the US government, for Ellington to retire.
