ComPol Whylie says he is awaiting completed Auditor-General’s report

Allen Whylie

When asked if the police department would not have proceeded with an investigation had a writ of mandamus not been filed, ComPol Whylie told the media that they were simply awaiting the outcome of the auditor general’s investigation. That report has been delivered to the office of the Prime Minister and the Minister of Labor since March.

“Sir, without the order of mandamus the investigation would not proceed as it has, I know that copious statements have been taken.  I have given one myself.  I am saying that, isn’t there then an indication if so many statements were taken and so much investigative work has been done, isn’t there an indication that in fact mandamus was needed in order for your department to do its job because there appears to be substantial material that was gathered in the investigation.”

 

Allen Whylie, Commissioner of Police

“I disagree with you Jules because we had never taken the position that we would not investigate.  All we were saying was that we were awaiting an official complaint from the Director of Immigration or we were awaiting the results of the auditor general’s investigation.  It’s not unusual when people believe irregularities have occurred, an auditor general goes in, does the investigation and they send their report to us along with the necessary evidence, that was done in the Southern Regional Hospital case.  So we never said that we would never investigate.  We just said that based on the fact that investigations were already underway, we were awaiting the outcome of those and to be called in.”

 

Last Wednesday, ComPol Whylie came under fire from COLA and its attorney Kareem Musa for his inaction in criminally prosecuting Penner.
