PHILIPSBURG: — Detective Linden Lewis who was suspended after he gave statements in a murder investigation that involved a rookie police officer filed a complaint against the head of the Landsrecherche Ademar Doran last week for defamation.
Lewis was suspended by the management of the Landsrecherche for dereliction of duty because he did call the police when convicted officer Rishmer Red Rum York called him and told him that he was in the Belvedere area and was about to take out Akeem Isidora.
SMN News understands that detective Lewis who is still off the job, sent the complaint directly to the Attorney General, but so far the Attorney General Guus Schram did not take any decision on whether or not he will order an investigation against Doran.
In an invited comment Minister of Justice Edison Kirindongo confirmed that he was formally informed of the complaint that was filed against Doran. The Minister said that the person that has to order an investigation already has that information and he is waiting to see what decision the Attorney General will take on whether or not he should order an investigation. The Minister said unless the Attorney General takes a decision to order an investigation he cannot take any actions against Doran.
He told SMN News that when he received the complaint against the Director of IND Udo Aron he did not suspend him immediately, instead he gathered information on the incident and after that he wrote a letter to the Attorney General and asked him to conduct an investigation into the incident that occurred on May 5th 2016 at PJAIE. Minister Kirindongo said he only took actions and suspended the Director of IND when he was officially informed that the Attorney General ordered the investigation against Aron. He said Lewis did not send his complaint to him as Minister of Justice instead he sent it directly to the Attorney General.
