The Police Complaints Authority is making it clear that at no time did it furnish a copy of its Report into the alleged existence of a new Flying Squad Investigative Unit to any media house, media personnel or Member of Parliament.
In a statement this afternoon P.C.A. said leaking its report does not serve the interest of the authority.
It explained there was no need to leak the report as the PCA’s powers include the authority to make public disclosure of its findings in any matter.
The P.C.A. noted this has been done with several matters in the past.
In this instance, the PCA said it chose not to place any of its findings in the public domain, and the report was delivered to the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions.
The PCA said it is extremely unfortunate that the Attorney General (AG) has sought to suggest that the manner in which the report was introduced into public domain contaminates the report’s content and findings.
The authority says it is not a political entity and does not exercise any of its functions with a political agenda.
It further stated that it does not have the power to ‘clear’ any party, as suggested by the AG.
