CoP apologises to Khamal

UPDATE:

Outgoing acting Commissioner of Police Stephen Williams apologised to CNC3 news anchor Khamal Georges after his Kia Sportage car was stolen twice, and said the matter has engaged the executive of the police service and is now the subject of an “internal disciplinary process.”
Williams made the apology via a media release issued by the police service yesterday, describing the incident as one of “re-victimisation.”

Georges’ car was stolen a second time at around 6.47 pm from the Besson Street Police Station. It was later found with false number plates at Roget Place, St Barb’s, Belmont, by Port of Spain Division Task Force officers.

The release confirmed a 20-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the theft.
Georges reported the car stolen after he was robbed at gunpoint outside his St James home on Thursday morning after returning from the T20 CPL match at the Queen’s Park Oval.
The Inter Agency Task Force found the car hours later at Bath Street, East Port of Spain. But later it was stolen again from just outside the Besson Street Police Station, where police had left it.

Nevertheless, Georges appeared to be in good spirits during an interview with reporters outside the Central Police Station on St Vincent Street, Port of Spain.
He said despite being shaken, he was grateful for the assistance of the police, adding he could not believe his vehicle had been stolen twice.

“I went to my family to get a good night’s rest in South,” he explained, saying that when he heard of the second theft, “I initially thought it was fake.
“But what can you do?
“I thought the response of the police was good. They have been really very supportive and very apologetic as well. “I came out of the game a little late because we hung around for a bit. They probably saw where I parked and thought I was an easy target.”

He also joked that he would like to sell the car, but admitted it would be difficult now, given its reputation.
