Opposition Leader Keith Rowley issued yet another call yesterday for Commissioner Gibbs to resign immediately

Speaking at his bi-monthly media conference at his Charles Street port of Spain office yesterday Dr. Rowley slammed the handling of news of the alleged plot to assassinate Prime Minister Kamla Persad Bissessar

He insisted that conflicting police reports as to the veracity of the plot would have been avoided had the police force maintained its independence of the government

Dr. Rowley added that, shortly after being briefed on the plot by Deputy Police Commissioner Mervyn Richardson on November 23rd, he was convinced that the plot was a hoax

He demanded that the Police Service Commission dismiss Mr. Gibbs immediately

The Opposition Leader describe the Police Commissioner as a “a useless, pliable tool at the hands of the political directorate”.
