Minister of State, Joseph Harmon, this morning, received the report of the inquiry into the allegations made against officials of the Customs Anti-Narcotic Unit (CANU) by self-confessed drug lord, Barry Dataram.
The probe was conducted by Brigadier Bruce Lovell, who was appointed by President David Granger, shortly after the allegations were made.
Lovell, according to the Ministry of the Presidency, said that the allegations made by Dataram are of a very serious nature against officials of the State and as such it was incumbent on the Government to carry out a probe, which he completed in two months.
“I am positive that the Government will find favour with the recommendations as well as the conclusions and take the appropriate actions,” he said.
The report will be presented to the President and a copy will be handed over to Minister of Public Security, Khemraj Ramjattan.
