Senior Officers Caught in LICENSE RACKET

Members of the Royal Grenada Police Force (RGPF) have launched what is being referred to as a major investigation into allegations of fraudulent disbursement of driver’s licenses.

This we were told could result in a number of senior police officers forcefully parting ways with the RGPF and the supposed- to- be credible organization coming in for heavy bashing from the Commander-in-Chief.

 According to inside sources, already one senior officer has been transferred from the island’s capital to a station in an outer parish thus ensuring that the process of the investigation is as seamless as possible, and most importantly, our source added, that all the relevant pieces touching and concerning the case are collected.

 Sources told the Informer that the RGPF is convinced that they have in their possession credible information that points to a functioning licensing racket of some vintage, operating within the RGPF with outside connections that has resulted in the distribution of  scores of licenses in exchange for cash, to drivers who for one reason or another chose not to go through the normal channel to obtain a license or in some cases failed to pass the requisite driving test.

 The move to launch an investigation our sources said came when officers at the Inland Revenue Department raised the red flag questioning the number of persons showing up for new licenses as opposed to the number of persons recorded as passing the exam on a daily basis.

  Informer learned that a special team of investigating officers have been tasked with the responsibility of looking into the matter and according to our source, fingers are pointing at a number of key players within the RGPF, including personnel from other departments linked in one way or another to the illegal issuing of licenses.

 In the recent past one individual from the parish of St. Mark was arrested, charged and convicted for a similar offense; time alone would tell if the fate of those names that are presently featuring in this fiasco would be similar in the event that they are also found guilty.
