President of the Police Service Social and Welfare Association, Insp Michael Seales, will reappear before a Port-of-Spain Magistrate on August 23.

Seales is currently before the courts charged with making a seditious statement on June 24 last year. He is out on bail set at the sum of $75,000.

The matter was called for mention this morning at the Port-of-Spain Magistrates’ Eighth Court before Chief Magistrate Marcia Ayers-Caesar.

Seales is being represented by prominent attorneys Pamela Elder, SC, and Owen Hinds.

It is alleged that Seales made the seditious statement on June 24 last year during a live interview on TV6 Morning Edition.

He claimed that there was then an alleged plot by the People’s Partnership government to frustrate the Police Service to react in such a way that there would be a need for a state of emergency, thereby stalling the September 7 general election.

Seales made the comment during the heightened wage negotiations and was suspended the following day by acting Police Commissioner Stephen Williams.

In a release then, Williams said he made the decision “as a result of an allegation of serious misconduct.”
