Female claims male officer filmed her urinating

Female claims male officer filmed her urinating

A young female is claiming that a police officer filmed her urinating while she was detained at Custody Suites.

Attorney at Law, Mary Francis, told the Times in an exclusive interview that she is pursuing the case.

Francis is also Coordinator of the National Centre for Legal Aid and Human Rights.

She told the Times that on the weekend a report was made to her from that a young woman’s rights were violated after the Carnival street jump up.

Francis asserted that the way the female was treated violates  the constitution  which prohibits torture or degrading punishment or treatment.

According to Francis, her client reported having been picked up by the police during the carnival celebrations and taken to Custody Suites.

The Attorney at Law said the woman’s request to  use the bathroom was denied and she was told instead to use the yard outside where, while urinating.  she was filmed by an officer.

“That is totally degrading punishment for a young woman,” Francis declared.

The Human Rights Activist said that she is looking into the matter.

She declared that under the criminal code there is provision for police bail in connection with  offences that are not serious, such as the use of insulting language.

“You don’t have to detain people for an inordinate length of time, refusing to exercise your discretion,” Francis told the Times.

She disclosed that the young woman in question was released yesterday, having been detained since Sunday evening.

Francis said the woman and her sister had been picked up and taken to give a statement, which never occurred.

The Attorney at Law asserted that the rights of the two women were also violated in that they were not allowed to contact a legal practitioner.

Francis declared that she is becoming more and more disenchanted with the actions of some police officers.

She told the Times that there is clear resistance by them to her efforts to intervene in cases related to human rights violations.

However the Coordinator of the National Centre for Legal Aid and Human Rights said that her job is not to get people – including the police, to like her, but to get them to understand the importance of adherence to human rights and the rule of law.

    It’s about time. The police use their authority to arrest and detain people at will for no reason and then let you go
