In addition, four other ranks including one senior police officer will be facing disciplinary action in accordance with procedures of the Guyana Police Force.

Crime Chief, Leslie James confirmed to iNews that he is in receipt of the Harding file which was sent to him by the Chairman of Police Complaints Authority, Retired Justice Cecil Kennard.

The Crime Chief said he will peruse the document before it is sent to the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions.

Colwyn Harding was reportedly raped with a baton by a police officer while he was in custody and ill-treated by other ranks of the Timehri Police Station where he was being detained in November 2013.

There have been much unease in society with respect to the investigations into the Colwyn Harding matter causing many to suggest that the police are taking their very own time in investigating their own.
