KINGSTOWN, St. Vincent, Feb. 18, IWN – Police are making “every effort” to return to St. Vincent a colleague who fled the country in the midst of an investigation into alleged sexual relations with his 8-year-old daughter.

“We are carrying out some investigations into the involvement of a policeman with his 8-year-old child,” Commissioner of Police, Keith Miller confirmed to I-Witness News on Sunday.

“When we make more progress, when we have more information, I will call the media and brief them, accordingly” he further said in Layou, where the police launched two youth clubs.

“I can tell you, based on our investigation so far, he has fled the state and it is something we were hoping not to happen.

“But you know, sometimes, people have a way when they are investigating matters, they want to keep things under their belt, so to speak.

“Based on what the investigators said, they wanted to do the groundwork first, but it seems that word got out … and the policeman got word of that and he [fled],” Miller further told I-Witness News.

“But I can let you know, every effort is being made to get him back to St. Vincent,” the police chief further said.

Searchlight newspaper reported on Friday that the cop, a corporal attached to the Special Services Unit, is suspected of raping his 8-year-old daughter and infecting her with gonhorrea, a sexually transmitted infection.

The newspaper said questions were being asked as to how the police officer was able to leave the country without the written permission of the Commissioner of Police, a requisite for officers below the rank of sergeant.

    Another dreadful story, lets hope that the child isn’t further damaged by some dick brain giving the policeman’s name out.

    Remember Gonsalves said their is no need for Vincentians to claim asylum. Well this is a case where the child should be taken to another country.

    Being raped by your father in SVG is fairly common, catching gonhorrea from ones father is not so common.

    I think that Chief Millar is a disgrace to his rank, he has given enough information to identify the child and enough information to ruin her life.

  2. Peter I have to agree with you to some extent. Mr Miller should have said “we are carring out investigation of sexual assault involving a police man and a minor child” End of story. The minor child’s portfolio still need to be protected. In some countries Peter a child at this age is never brought into the open court hearing room. The child is either
    interviewed by professionals at a different location. The accused goes to jail and only close associates,neighbours and the police may know who the child. Peter let me say this if I were to still live and work in SVG for the last 29 yrs I would not have known stuff I know today. Experience saves the pitfalls. But I think miller should know these things, a man who truly had an opportunity to study law. On the other hand, I wonder how well did Miller handle Gonsalves or the Policewoman privacy in ‘a policewoman vs Gonsalves’rape charge a few years ago! That case had too much media attention. Every one involved in that case should have dealt with it on different level.

  3. PROF DA SILVA, I am so pleased to see here after such along time. Your sensible, intelligent and unbiased input is dearly missed by all decent people on this and other sites.

    Welcome, please don’t be a stranger.
