[] – Home Affairs Minister Clement Rohee has given the Guyana Police Force (GPF) ‘a pat on the back’ for the breakthrough it has made recently in several criminal matters.

Speaking to iNews yesterday, Rohee said he feels “very positive” about the inroads police have made in some high profile criminal cases.

“I know that notwithstanding the fact some of these crimes were committed some time ago the commitment to solve these crimes is evident,” Rohee said; adding that “crime solving sometimes takes a lot of time.”

The Minister recognized that solving crimes depend on people coming forward and circumstances under which it occurred.Guyana-Police-Force

He made reference to ongoing prosecutions involving the alleged accomplice of now dead bandit Kevin Fields who was shot during a robbery on Sheriff Street on July 14; the suspect in the Medicare, Botanical Gardens robbery/murder and more recently the case involving the Lusignan Hairdresser Ashmini Harriram who was shot dead moments after exiting a bus and the Haslington Fisherman who was hacked to death.

“I feel please to know that the police have made breakthroughs and must be congratulated,” Rohee said.

According to him, the police will always have difficulties, “good days and bad days” but stated that it was important to give support.

Rohee added that whenever there is an infraction and it is proven then the public also have a right and should criticize.
