Two police constables appear in court today

Two brothers, both of whom are police constables, will appear before a Port of Spain magistrate today, on charges of misbehaviour in public office.

The charges stem from an incident that occurred in March last year, during which a 30-year-old watchman was confronted by the two officers, who reportedly assaulted and abused him.

The victim informed the officers he was going to report them for their actions and proceeded to the Central Police Station.

It was reported that he was followed by the officers who arrested him for using obscene language and resisting arrest.

The Professional Standards Bureau subsequently conducted investigations into the incident.

Yesterday, the Director of Public Prosecutions gave instructions to charge the two officers, while charges against the victim were ordered dropped.
