He said that there are the legal issues which need to be dealt with and according to him; the police are working to ensure that they get everything properly done.
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 has been much unease in society with respect to the investigations into the matter causing many to suggest that the police are taking their very own time in investigating their own. [Leroy Smith]
