By D. Ignatius Roberts, LINA Grand Cape Mount County Correspondent
ROBERTSPORT, October 27 (LINA) - Grand Cape Mount County Police detachment Commander Jacob Comehn has warned officers under his command against detaining suspects for longer than legally required.
He said any officer caught having a suspect behind bars for more than provided under the law will be dealt with in accordance with the police manual.
Speaking in an interview with the Liberia News Agency in Robertsport Tuesday, Comehn said keeping a suspect in police custody for protracted period without sending him/her to court is a violation of their constitutional right.
Meanwhile, local police chief is appealing to authorities of the LNP to increase the manpower of the police in all five districts to augment police presence in the county.
