Officer being disciplined for breathalyser failure

Dear Editor,

The Guyana Police Force is responding to an article published in yesterday’s edition of the Guyana Chronicle captioned ‘Businessman knocks police probe into crash’.

Please be advised that the driver of the vehicle that caused the accident has been charged with dangerous driving and the case is fixed for hearing at the Leonora Magistrate’s Court next Tuesday.

Further the Traffic Subordinate Officer who visited the scene indeed neglected to administer a breathalyser test on the driver of the vehicle who caused the accident; he is being disciplined for the neglect and has no further role to play in the investigation.

Yours faithfully,

Jairam Ramlakhan

Superintendent of Police

Public Relations and Press Officer
