Acting AG files police complaint

Thursday, August 16, 2018
Acting Attorney General Fitzgerald Hinds is doused by Beetham residents during his tour of flood affected areas, yesterday.

Acting Attorney General and Laventille West MP Fitzgerald Hinds made a report to police against a group of residents of Beetham Gardens who doused him with flood water during a tour of the community on Tuesday.

Police sources said that Hinds went to the Besson Street Police Station to make the report yesterday. Hinds refused to confirm or deny the reason for his visit when asked by reporters outside the station.

Guardian Media was unable to confirm whether local government councillor for the area, Akil Audian, who accompanied Hinds on the tour of the flood-ravaged community and who was also soaked with flood water, made a similar report.

Now that the incident is reported, police are expected to visit the community to interview those who were involved and those who witnessed the incident. No arrests were made up to late yesterday.

Investigations are continuing.
