Trinidadís Acting Commissioner of Police Stephen Williams has ordered an investigation into allegations that Attorney General Anand Ramlogan attempted to interfere in a criminal case.
It is reported that the Director of the Police Complaints Authority, David West, visited the acting police commissioners and presented him with a signed statement making an allegation of an attempt to pervert the course of justice against Ramlogan.
In a statement issued yesterday, West said since his appointment last November, the Attorney General asked him to withdraw a witness statement which he had made on behalf of opposition leader, Dr Keith Rowley.
The Sunday Express newspaper reported that Ramlogan had refused to confirm or deny an allegation that six days before West was appointed he asked him to withdraw his witness statement in a defamation lawsuit brought by Dr Rowley against him.
The newspaper reported that Ramlogan made the demand in exchange of West being selected for the job.
