Bajan police sue over promotions list

(Barbados Nation ) In an unprecedented move, 15 police officers, including nine from senior ranks, are going to the High Court to challenge their omission from this year’s promotions list.

The action follows legal letters giving the Police Service Commission (PSC) a last Thursday deadline to reverse its decision to promote several other officers.

“I am instructed that the aforementioned officers have all qualified for promotion after successfully completing the process and receiving the pivotal recommendation for the said promotion,” Queen’s Counsel Ralph Thorne stated in a letter sent to the PSC’s chairman last Tuesday giving the PSC 48 hours to respond.

Thorne, who is representing 14 of the 15 aggrieved officers, added: “It appears that their legitimate expectation has been unlawfully defeated.”

The letter was copied to the Commissioner of Police and the Attorney General.
