Vaki Assessing Paraka Files

Acting Police Commissioner, Geoffrey Vaki has explained to the media that the investigation files in the Paraka payment will be assessed, before being passed on to the public prosecutor.

Commissioner Vaki had received a briefing by the lead case investigators, and files passed on to his office for assessment.


This, he says, is to have an objective assessment on the files to verify whether it has substantive evidence.


From his office yesterday afternoon, Acting Commissioner Geoffrey Vaki, told the media that it is not in his interest to restrain the arrest warrant on the Prime Minister however he has to be objective about the whole investigation.


Vaki said he will assess the Paraka files before deciding whether to pass them on to the public prosecutor for its assessment and what necessary steps to take from there.


The Acting Commissioner also clarified that he has the constitutional rights to lay, charge or withdraw cases and he will exercise that right if need be.


When asked whether he was referring to Prime Minister’s arrest warrant case, Mr. Vaki denied this saying he was making a general comment on the rights of all police officers that are guided by the constitution bound to perform their duties.
