(Trinidad Guardian) Acting Police Commissioner Gary Griffith says there’s a “massive, well-orchestrated, clandestine mission” to undermine him.
“The hatred and fear for my return by some is mind-boggling, and they have put it as their mission to do all they can to prevent it,” he said via a statement yesterday, after returning from vacation leave.
“The detractors and defenders of criminal elements, inside and outside the Police Service, have almost exhausted their vomit and lies, in their last-ditch desperate attempt, in the hope that their trash talk of falsehoods, can influence the (PSC’s) Merit List, and affect the selection process.”
Citing success in defeating “fellow honourable rival applicants” in the 2018 selection process and listing accomplishments, Griffith said the only possibility detractors and those involved in the mission against him had for him not to be re-appointed wasn’t in a fair race, “but through a massive, well-orchestrated clandestine mission to undermine me with lies, which uses certain media contacts in the process.”
Griffith said he understood some may be uncomfortable with his leadership style.
