City corporal dismissed for ‘dereliction’ must be given fair hearing

-Communities Minister tells Town Clerk

Minister of Communities, Ronald Bulkan has written to the city’s Town Clerk saying that the corporal who was dismissed for supposedly failing to take action during an alleged sexual assault on a minor by a lance corporal, must be given a fair hearing.

Corporal Quacy Baveghems was dismissed by Town Clerk Royston King on October 17 for alleged dereliction of duty in failing to intervene or make an entry of the incident in the station diary. However Baveghems did report the matter to his senior at City Hall and his dismissal is being seen as punishment for having done so.

It appears that Baveghems made a complaint of wrongful dismissal to the Ministry of Communities and Bulkan wrote King on the matter, King replied on October 31st and in a reply dated November 9th, 2017, Bulkan said there were many discrepancies in the reply…..
