[www.inewsguyana.com] – Crime Chief, Leslie James says the police are still investigating the rape allegations against Speaker of the National Assembly, Raphael Trotman.

When contacted, James told iNews that the allegations need to be properly investigated and that the police cannot just arrest persons without conducting a thorough investigation.

Trotman’s accuser, 22 – year – old Johnny Welshman went public with the accusations, stating that Trotman buggered him when he was 12 – years – old.

Welshman is also alleging that his father and a close relative also sexually assaulted him when he was a child.

Meanwhile, when contacted by iNews, Legal Advisor to the Guyana Police Force, Justice Claudette Singh confirmed that there was no move on the part of the police to seek her advice on charging the Speaker.

Justice Singh explained that the matter is an indictable one and as such, advice will be sought from the Director of Public Prosecutions.

Meanwhile, upon investigating, iNews found that the police did not send a file as yet to the DPP’s chambers in relation to the incident.

Trotman has come out in full defence, denying the allegations; stating that the young man is mentally unstable and it is a plot by the ruling People’s Progressive Party to destroy him.
