The Commissioner of Police filed a motion in the Supreme Court yesterday. Anil Kumar Dip is seeking for an extension of time so that he can challenge the Moka District Court’s decision to release Bruneau Laurette on bail.
In a document to support his claim, he violently criticized the DPP’s office. He claims that he was misguided and accused the Director of Public Prosecutions of having gone beyond his constitutional powers.
The CP said that due to the heavy rainfall warning issued on Monday, 6 March, he was unable to meet the deadline for filing the appeal. Hence its motion for an extension of time.
The motion of the CP is drafted by solicitor Shamila Sonah-Ori.
Anil Kumar Dip argued that the DPP has not properly defended the police on issues like bail, peace, and public safety.
The CP said there are several flaws in the Moka court’s judgment. He insisted on the fact that the magistrate conceded that there is a risk that Bruneau Laurette flees the country.
The case will be called on Monday 13 March. The motion is directed against Bruneau Laurette, the magistrate of the Moka court and the Director of Public Prosecutions. They will have to give their stand on the motion.
