If any of the emails, releases and obviously planted stories circulating within the last 36 hours have any substratum of fact, then the fact of interference in the selection process for a new commissioner of police and now apparent interference in the attempts to settle the attendant litigation seem confirmed.
These clandestine activities are even more deeply troubling than I have already described.
It is imperative that the PolSC—miserable failure that it is—be reconstituted with members with backbone who are not representative of cliques taking the place of those who have resigned.
The existing chair should also recognise that she is in an untenable position and should depart from the PolSC forthwith.
The first task of the new members of a reconstituted PolSC should be to appoint an acting commissioner of police without reference to the admittedly erroneous 2021 subsidiary legislation, for which the Attorney General must account.
The second task is to scrap the already poisoned process and set about the process of appointing a substantive commissioner of police.
We are in the midst of dangerous, swirling currents of abuse of power and this is no time quietly to accept a failed status quo.
