File on shooting of teen with police complaints body
Chairman of the Police Com-plaints Authority (PCA), retired Justice Cecil Kennard yesterday said that he is in receipt of the file on 15 year old Alex Griffith who was shot by a policeman on April 30.
On Tuesday, the police by way of a statement announced that the Police Office of Professional Responsibility had completed its investigation.
Contacted yesterday, Kennard said that he hasn’t had a chance to peruse the file as he is hoping to complete another file first. “After having concluded the (Colwyn) Harding matter I will then look at the file,” he said.
He also said that “at the end of the day if I recommend disciplinary charges, the file will then go to the DPP.”
Griffith has identified a cadet officer as the person responsible for the shooting and picked him out during an identification parade at the Brickdam Police Station last week.
