High ranking police officer facing disciplinary action

TNN can report that Mr. Martin Weekes, Assistant Commissioner of Police has been put on restricted duties pending an investigation into alleged misconduct on his part.

Asked whether this was in fact the case a spokesman for the Bermuda Police Service, told TNN “The Bermuda Police Service can confirm that a police officer is currently being investigated following allegations of misconduct against them.”

The officer has not been charged with any offence and remains on duty with some responsibilities varied, pending the outcome of the investigation.”

“Given the nature of the investigation and continuing lines of enquiry, no further details will be released at this time.”

However, sources tell TNN there is some concern about this situation within the BPS. It is understood this stems from claims that the allegations being looked into were already dismissed by the courts.

These allegations are believed to centre around claims that ACoP Weekes managed the promotion process against a West Indian officer while allegedly aiding UK officers.

Allegations that were dismissed by the Supreme Court during a matter brought by the West Indian officer against the BPS and the promotions process.
