DPP to rule in cop abduction case
The Corporate Communications Unit (CCU) says formal charges against a constable, who is alleged to have abducted and assaulted his ex-girlfriend, awaits a decision by the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).
The constable, who is from the Manchester Police Division, is accused of committing the acts against the woman after she broke off their relationship.
He has been arrested since the incident but is yet to be charged.
It was unclear up to press time yesterday whether a file has been sent to the DPP or oral advice was sought from the office.
DPP Paula Llewellyn is currently on leave.
Reports are that the woman was abducted and held under inhumane conditions for more than 10 days.
She reportedly escaped, following which a report was made against the policeman.
The CCU told THE STAR that investigations are ongoing and charges could be laid very soon.
