Rohee, Green voice concerns to Top Cop over Carol Sooba’s security
- City Hall staff uneasy over bodyguard’s presence, Mayor says
PPP General Secretary Clement Rohee yesterday said that he has conveyed his concerns about the security of government’s Town Clerk-appointee Carol Sooba to acting Police Commissioner Seelall Persaud, even as Mayor Hamilton Green wrote to the commissioner to find out whether her private bodyguard Shawn Hinds is armed in the light of uneasiness about his presence.
Green, in a letter to both Persaud and Chief Constable Andrew Foo, requested that Hinds be checked to ascertain if he carries a firearm or any illegal weapon as a matter of urgency.
Hinds, an ex-policeman, had been charged with murder but was acquitted in the High Court. He has also faced other charges but has not been convicted.
