The People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) activists who were arrested in connection with a murder probe have reportedly confessed to hurling a container of faeces on newspaper columnist and political activist Freddie Kissoon, some six years ago, however, questions are being raised as to whether the detainees were forced to do so.
Police sources allege that Jason Abdulla, Okene Fraser and self-confessed death squad member Sean Hinds have all admitted to committing the act.
According to information received, the trio alleged that former Press and Publicity Officer and PPP/C Executive Member Kwame McCoy, was the mastermind behind the idea.
PPP members and supporters have since took to social media expressing their dissatisfaction with the manner in which the detainees are being treated. One of the men, Abdulla has already accused the police of beating him. INews understands that Abdulla was allegedly threatened and forced to sign a “document”. It is reported that Abdulla was not told what he was signing but was allegedly threatened that if he did not sign the document, he would end up being charged for the murder of Courtney Crum Ewing.
Crime Chief, Seelall Persaud has shot down these allegations of police brutality against the men.
Kssoon, an open critic of the PPP/C, was doused with faecal matter on May 24, 2010 in the vicinity of the Nigel’s Supermarket, Robb Street.
The public figure had just emerged from the supermarket and had entered his vehicle when a man approached and threw the substance on him.
Reports indicate that Kissoon then chased behind the perpetrator but the man escaped in a waiting vehicle.
