2012-08-17 12:14:33 | (0 Comments)
Forty-one-year-old Clayton James, a police corporal attached to the St. Elizabeth Division, and 45-year-old unemployed Oswald Pinto of Steven Run district, St. Elizabeth, were today charged by members of the Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB).
The charges follow a ruling by the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) that both men be charged for breaches of the Corruption Prevention Act.
Both men were arrested during a sting operation carried out by members of the ACB on Monday August 13. Reports are that the Corporal corruptly solicited money from a motorist in order not to prosecute him for an offence under the Road Traffic Act.
Pinto, who is a friend of the policeman, was sent to collect the money from the motorist. Both men were held.
James and Pinto are to appear before the Santa Cruz Resident Magistrate’s Court later today.
