COMMISSIONER of Police Gary Griffith has made it clear that he has not resigned as head of the police service, nor does he intend to do so.
Griffith sought to clear the air on Tuesday afternoon after social media posts – some designed to resemble posts by authentic news outlets – declared that he had quit.
Saying he had "bad news" for the criminal elements and the “Hate Gary Club,” he said there are too many idle hands in this country, who have nothing better to do than to spread fake news.
He added that those who know him best, could attest that he is a fighter and not a quitter. He said both he and the Chair of the
National Security Council (Prime Minister Dr Rowley) have too many things to do to secure this country, that he cannot even contemplate resigning.
It was Rowley who on Monday summoned Griffith to a meeting after a weekend of tit-for-tat exchanges between the head of government and the CoP on the police's ability to enter private property to deal with people breaking the Public Health Ordinance designed to halt the spread of the covid19 virus.
In his press release on Tuesday, Griffith said there are people out there with an agenda with one purpose in mind and that is to spread false news with the hope of having a destabilising effect.
