WAITHE: Police must probe Darryl Smith case

Head of FIXIN T&T, Kirk Waithe, says the allegations of cover-up in the Darryl Smith matter, are extremely worrying, and he believes it is time the police launch an investigation into the case.

Kirk Waithe is taking issue with the fact that the settlement awarded to the victim in the sexual harassment claim against Darryl Smith, was paid with public funds. He also points out that the victim could never discuss the matter because she was forced to sign a non-disclosure agreement.

Mr Waithe believes that the country needs to put in place effective sexual harassment legislation. He says this must be a top priority for government, and must no longer be given mere lip service.
