The Police Complaints Authority (PCA) says it is aware of reports of an alleged voice note being circulated via social media, allegedly emanating from an Officer of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS).
The PCA has been informed that the Professional Standards Bureau (PSB) has been charged with the responsibility of investigating this matter which also falls within the remit of the PCA.
It says that in light of this, the PCA wishes to advise the public that it shall be monitoring and auditing the investigation of the PSB pursuant to Section 21 (1) (c) of the Police Complaints Authority Act, Chapter 15:05.
It says that by the close of business today the PCA will be communicating with the PSB on this matter.
Over the weekend the voice note of a person who identified herself as a female police officer, alleged that the wife of former Minister of National Security Howard Chin Lee, had been stopped for a traffic violation.
The voice note alleged that the former minister's wife did not have a driver's permit and insurance and was taken to a police station where they were met by Chin Lee.
Chin Lee later issued a statement saying that the claims made in the voice note, were not entirely correct.
