The promised IMPACS Tribunal is on schedule, Prime Minister, Allen Chastanet, has assured.
Chastanet’s United Workers Party (UWP) had promised during the last elections, that within one hundred days of assuming office it would announce the terms of reference of an independent tribunal to deal with the IMPACS matter regarding alleged extra judicial killings by police officers here.
Prime Minister, Allen Chastanet, says the move to set up the tribunal was “one hundred percent” on track. He disclosed that his administration has been in contact with the British, the Americans and the Canadians.
He also disclosed that simultaneously, attempts are being made to get the situation with the Director of Public Prosecutions resolved.
The post has not been filled since Victoria Charles-Clarke proceeded on preretirement leave in March.
Chastanet explained that once a DPP is appointed, he is hoping that the government can take up the offer of getting a special Prosecutor to specifically deal with the IMPACS situation.
