Chester Williams turns up information on his accusers

Story PictureSenior Superintendent Chester Williams is back in the news tonight. Williams, who is off the beat until the merits of his transfer and suspension are resolved, has turned up vital information in which he claims that he has been framed by his own. It is a story that has many twists and turns and according to information reaching News Five, on Monday, Williams made an official complaint to the police requesting a thorough investigation into his case.

Williams claims he was named by top brass in the police in the presumed murder of Jermaine Fuentes that purportedly occurred in 2002. The allegation is that the senior superintendent was behind a death squad in the police force that killed Fuentes and put his remains near the Coastal Road. Fuentes, also known as Jermaine de Paz, disappeared in January 2002 after he was accused of a string of high profile murders.

In his complaint to the police, Williams claims the remains unearthed from a shallow grave near a river bank on the coastal road, show consistent signs that a post mortem had been conducted, suggesting that the remains were placed in the grave to set him up. It is also known that Williams has provided a copy of a statement to the D.P.P. made by one of his accusers who admits he accused the senior superintendent because he feared for his own life.

Williams is requesting that police investigate how the human remains got to the grave on the Coastal Road, who were involved in what he calls a “conspiracy,” and he further requests that court action be taken for the fabrication of evidence against him.

Williams’ woes began back in March when he was first transferred to what he considered a lower level job and then suspended from the force after he was named in the investigation of the Fuentes murder. Williams has claimed that the actions against him are politically motivated and is challenging his transfer before the Services Commission, while the matter of his suspension is before the Supreme Court.

Commissioner of Police, Gerald Westby today confirmed to News Five that Williams has in fact submitted the complaint and that it will be investigated.
