CoP clears up erroneous claim

Com­mis­sion­er of Po­lice Gary Grif­fith says that dur­ing his tenure as na­tion­al se­cu­ri­ty ad­vi­sor for for­mer prime min­is­ter Kam­la Per­sad-Bisses­sar he was nev­er part of any cov­er-up in­to the mar­i­jua­na find at Per­sad-Bisses­sar's Phillip­ine home.

Grif­fith said when he was first in­formed about the mar­i­jua­na find at the res­i­dence he ad­vised that the mat­ter should be re­port­ed to the po­lice.

For­mer na­tion­al se­cu­ri­ty min­is­ter Jack Warn­er claimed that when the find was made on April 12, 2013, Grif­fith and for­mer hous­ing min­is­ter Dr Roodal Mooni­lal were both aware of the find and had ad­vised Per­sad-Bisses­sar of it.

On Thurs­day, Grif­fith said that the in­ves­ti­ga­tion in­to the mat­ter had been com­plet­ed and Per­sad-Bisses­sar had been cleared of any wrong­do­ing.
