Senior Counsel Pamela Elder has described the delay by police in charging former Attorney General Anand Ramlogan as oppressive.

Up to 3 pm on Wednesday, Ramlogan had not been charged, although he was detained by police at 6 am on Tuesday.

He can be legally held without charge for 72 hours, on suspicion of a charge.

Elder spoke to reporters outside the police CID around 2.30 pm.
