$100,000 bail for two cops on bribery charges
Two police officers, accused of receiving and soliciting a $1,500 bribe, appeared in the Port-of-Spain Magistrates’ Court yesterday and were each placed on $100,000 bail. Acting Insp Nyron Heeralal and PC Ronald Nathasingh were not called upon to plea to the charges when they appeared before Magistrate Marcia Murray in the Port-of-Spain First Court. Herralal was charged with soliciting and receiving a $1,500 bribe to forgo prosecution in a drunk driving case, misbehaviour in public office and recording a false entry in an official register.
Nathasingh was slapped with one charge for soliciting the bribe. The officers, who were last assigned to the Chaguanas Police Station, were arrested last week by investigators of the Professional Standards Bureau. Both officers are in their 40s, have a total of 32 years’ service and live in Longdenville, Chaguanas. The charges arose out of an incident which allegedly occurred at the Chaguanas Police Station on May 17. Senior Supt Deodath Doolalchan and ASP Totaram Dookie co-ordinated the investigation. Insp Montrichard laid the charges. They will reappear in court on October 8.
