PWA seeking legal advice on IMPACS matter

The Police Welfare Association (PWA) is in conversation with ‘key attorneys’ in relation to what has become known here as the IMPACS affair.

The disclosure has come from PWA President, Travis Chicot.

“We have some information – we are in conversation with key attorneys, good attorneys, persons who can advise the executive,” Chicot disclosed today as members of the new executive of the PWA held their first meeting with the general membership of the organisation.

The PWA President said the new executive plans to meet with police officers who were affected by the IMPACS affair.

“What we have asked them to do is to remain professional even as they go through the situation at hand,” Chicot stated.

However he said the IMPACS matter was not going to be discussed at today’s general meeting.

“There will be a special meeting where we will deal with that issue with our members – the general body and also the set of people who were accused, so we will meet with them and let them know the plans that we have in place,” Chicot said.

IMPACS -the Caricom Implementation Agency for Crime and Security, was asked by the Saint Lucia government  in 2013  to investigate and report on all alleged extrajudicial killings by members of the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF) between 2011 and 2012.

The report, prepared by a team of Jamaican investigators, described local police officers  as operating in “an environment of impunity and permissiveness designed to achieve the desired results,” with senior commanders showing “willful blindness.”

It also spoke of ‘death lists’ kept by local police officers who carried out extrajudicial killings of suspected criminals.

    Something us brewing. I suspect police will be arrested in the very near future. What they fwar….. Is about to happen. If you are innocent there’s nothing to fear if you are guilty there’s everything to fwar. Is it true that known criminals were taken out while those in the hierarchy turned a blind eye… Let your conscience be your guide

    When will this PWA notice there are not a UNION ????? The executive of this organization need to understand the statue they operate under does not give them the latitude as a UNION.
    They are misguided and therefore the legal advisers should have told them so a long time ago.

      Even in the mighty US, the basic educational requirement is a high school diploma. So, get off your high horse.
