Crime Chief Seelall Persaud yesterday said no charges have been recommended against the police officers implicated in the alleged rape of a 16-year-old boy at the Stabroek Market police outpost in January.
Persaud said that since no charges have been recommended that was the end of the matter.
The 16-year-old had alleged he was sexually assaulted on January 26 inside of a police outpost at the Stabroek Market. His accusations had incited much criticism against the Guyana Police Force from human rights organisations and an opposition political party since it came on the heels of another alleged police rape case.
Commissioner of Police Leroy Brumell had told reporters last month that the teen was unable to identify any of the police ranks during an identification parade.
A senior official of the Ministry of Human Services had said the ministry was seeking a psychiatric evaluation for the teen after he scaled the roofs of two buildings on Robb Street in an attempt to flee from a relative in the days after he made the allegation.
The boy had clambered onto the roofs to evade an abusive relative who claimed he fabricated the allegations. His actions had caused hundreds of people to swarm the street screaming at him not to jump.
