Press Release - RESPONSE TO NEWSPAPER ARTICLE

09 June, 2015

 
 
The Guyana Police Force is responding to an article published in the Kaieteur News today Tuesday June 09, 2015, under the caption “Police criticised for handling of Wismar shooting”, which dealt with the shooting of Police Constable Victor Fausette at the Wisroc Police Outpost on Sunday June 07, 2015.
 
The Guyana Police Force wishes to state that contrary to the allegation attributed to Constable Victor Fausette’s mother, Marcel Bobb, in the article, to the effect that “up to late yesterday afternoon (Monday), no one from the Police Administration had visited her son or spoken to her, personally”, the Police Force has been in contact with her since the very night of the incident on a continuous basis.
 
The Divisional Commander of “E” Division, where the injured rank is stationed, Senior Superintendent Calvin Brutus, made telephone contact with Marcel Bobb, via her cell phone, during the night of the incident in which he apprised her of the incident and expressed the Police Force’s concern over the injury to her son.
 
He also indicated to her that, at the time of their conversation, efforts were being made to transport the injured Constable Victor Fausette to the GPHC, by an Ambulance.
 
During the morning of yesterday Monday June 08, 2015, Inspector Oswald Pitt of “E” Division visited Police Constable Victor Fausette at the GPHC, at the behest of the Divisional Commander.
 
In addition, during yesterday morning the Police Welfare Officer, Assistant Superintendent Loraine Saul, visited the Hospital in order to see Constable Victor Fausette, but was unable to do so as he was in the recovery area of the ICU. However, she was informed of his condition by hospital personnel.
 
Consequently, Assistant Superintendent Loraine Saul returned to the hospital for the lunch period visit yesterday Monday June 08, 2015, where she was able to see the injured rank and was informed by another relative that Marcel Bobb would be returning to the hospital for the afternoon visit.

As a result, the Welfare Officer returned to the Hospital during the afternoon where she met with Marcel Bobb. She also expressed the Police Force’s concern about the incident and assured Marcel Bobb of the Force’s readiness to assist in every way possible with the care and welfare of Constable Victor Fausette.
 
During their conversation the issue of some urgent medical amenities for use by the injured rank in hospital, as well as some other matters, were discussed and have since been dealt with.
 
Divisional Commander Senior Superintendent Calvin Brutus also met with Marcel Bobb during his visit to the Hospital to see the injured rank today Tuesday June 09, 2015.
 
The Guyana Police Force has responded very positively in this matter involving Constable Victor Fausette, which is in keeping with its policy of utmost care and concern for the welfare of its members.
