Cold cases still with homicide

A number of incomplete cases have gone cold and are still with the Criminal Investigation Division and Homicide.

NCD Metropolitan Superintendent, Perou N’Dranou, said it is safe to say that homicide is investigating the cases but it involves time and effort.

“All other investigations are continuing, like that of the alleged police shooting of a young boy at the Erima flyover.”

This also includes the other cases that police have been investigating, like that of the late former Border Development Authority chairman, Fred Konga, the late Post-Courier journalist, Rosalyn Albaniel-Evara, and many others.

N’Dranou said the public expectation of their sense of urgency in completing the cases quickly is unfortunate, adding that police will need assistance from the public as well to have the cases solved.

“We have to follow process and do things correctly so we don’t lose evidence. Police is as good as the evidence they get from people,” says N’Dranou.

He adds that it is a slow investigative process and homicide will need to be careful not to overlook important steps that should be followed before the case goes before the court.
