Policeman accused of Moruga killings sues DPP over delay

One of the six police officers charged with murdering three friends from Moruga in 2011 has been given the green light to sue the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) over delays in starting their trial.

On Friday, High Court judge Ronnie Boodoosingh granted lawyers representing PC Safraz Juman leave to pursue his judicial review claim over the failure of the DPP’s Office to file an indictment against him and his colleagues since the end of their preliminary inquiry, almost five years ago.
