Suspended cops to be charged

Police are now in the process to charge the 37 pass-outs who were caught harassing new police recruits over the weekend.

The Bomana police commandant, Peter Philip, says that among the charges to be laid on the now suspended personnel, are disgraceful conduct, unethical behavior and disobeying lawful instructions.

He anticipates more charges to be laid on them following a consultation of the police act and the laws that are in place.

The pass-outs are recent graduates of the previous police batch and are on site as part of the APEC security training.

They were taken into custody after they were caught on Saturday night imposing initiation-like conduct on new male recruits forcing them to go to the extent of stripping naked and doing knuckle push-ups in the rain.

As of Sunday the pass-outs who were taken to the Gordons police cells to be detained fowling their capture were brought out of the cells, allowed to have a showers and given a suspension notices.

Formal charges will be laid today.
