CS commissioner sanctions investigation

An independent investigative enquiry into the leave of absence privileges has already been sanctioned by Correctional Services Commissioner, Michael Waipo.

The investigation is led by the assistant commissioner Southern region, Chief Superintendent Henry Wavik, along with an independent body to avoid biased views.

“This is made up of people apart from CS members,” says Waipo.

Meanwhile, reports on LOAs from correctional institutions for 2017 are expected reach the commissioner’s office no later than the end of January 2018, which is according to a circular sent out earlier this month.

Deputy commissioner operations and regional assistant commissioners must ensure that these reports are received from all the institutions.

Commanding officers failing to provide these reports will be severely dealt with.
