Attorney General clarifies advice given to Police in May, 2016

The Attorney General has referred to advice he gave to the Police on 16th May, 2016, and maintained that in no manner did he make recommendations that a stop should be made on investigations or the gathering of proof on individuals, Government officials and/or other persons.

He said the advice did not concern all investigations but a case in particular and specific to focus on the confiscation of servers being operated by the body and that Police should base their actions on reasonable suspicions to avoid the commitment of illegalities and responsibility with resultant damages as has often happened in the past.

The AG added that such an intrusive advice without any solid legal basis would require reason and responsibility.
