Ewatski to meet with service commission
Deputy Police Commissioner in charge of operations Jack Ewatski is expected to meet with the Police Service Commission following his refusal to sign his performance appraisal which he deemed “seriously flawed.” Ewatski, in a brief telephone interview yesterday, said the commission did acknowledge receiving his six-page letter. He said he was expected to meet face to face with all members “to have discussions” but did not specify a date or time.
Ewatski’s letter, dated February 29, was copied to National Security Minister John Sandy, director of Personnel Administration Gloria Edwards-Joseph and commission members Martin George, Jacqueline Cheesman, Kerry Parker and Addison Khan.
In his letter, Ewatski said when he assumed office on September 20, 2010, he was provided with a document from the National Security Ministry titled “A Performance Mandate for the Commissioner of Police in a Changing Environment.” “This contained the only clear mandate communicated to me relative to my role and all actions and initiatives taken have aligned with that mandate,” he wrote.
Police Commissioner Dwayne Gibbs who also refused to sign his appraisal has hired Senior Counsel Dana Seetahal to represent him. Efforts to contact the commission’s chairman Prof Ramesh Deosaran were unsuccessful. A spokesman said Deosaran was unavailable for comment as he was in a meeting.
