Police waiting on legal advice

Dear Editor,
Cognisant of an article captioned “Family of Coverden crash victim plead with Police to speed up probe”, which was published in a section of the local media on Wednesday, March 9, 2016, the Guyana Police Force wishes to clarify that investigations into the fatal accident that occurred on January 30, 2016, at Coverden, East Bank Demerara (EBD), and which resulted in the death of Ann Mohamed have been completed and the Police are in the process of seeking legal advice on the matter from the Chambers of the Director of Public Prosecutions.
The concern about a driver who was allegedly involved in the accident being seen driving on the roads is noted; however, any suspension of his driver’s licence is dependent on the receipt of legal advice, following which an Order to that effect can be prepared and served.
