The Police Complaints Authority (PCA) has recommended that three members of the Guyana Police Force, who are being investigated for the shooting death of a young man, be charged.
The PCA completed their investigation in Quindon Bacchus’ death and submitted their report to the Director of Public Prosecutions last evening.
“I recommend to the Director of Public Prosecutions that three members of the Police Force are to be charged. It is for the Director of Public Prosecutions to determine who is to be charged and what offences he/she/they is/are to be charged for,” PCA chairman Justice William Ramlal said in a statement.
Bacchus was shot on June 10 as he fled from a plainclothes police officer.
GPF claims that Bacchus had attempted to sell a firearm to the cop.
GPF alleged Bacchus shot at the officers, who attempted to capture him, and they returned fire, fatally wounding the young father of one.
Last week, residents of Golden Grove on the East Coast of the Demerara River protested the slow investigation into Bacchus’ death after new circulated on social media that the cop, who allegedly fired the fatal shot was released from police custody.
The protest turned violent resulting in several businesses being looted and damaged along with cars being burnt.
President Dr Mohammed Irfaan Ali had pleaded with Guyanese to allow the wheels of justice to turn so Bacchus’ family could receive justice.
