While on mission to Trinidad, the French Embassy’s Caracas-based Police Attaché, Serge Antony, paid a courtesy call to Commissioner of Police (CoP) Gary Griffith earlier this morning.
The meeting was also attended by French Ambassador Serge Lavroff, who expressed his gratitude to the CoP for his willingness to discuss collaborative ideas.
The parliament will have to sit again next Friday to discuss the nomination of Stephen Williams as commissioner of police.
The parliament has proceeded on July August vacation and means it will have to sit in emergency session to discuss the notification from the police service commission.
Last week, the parliament rejected the nomination of Harold Phillip who was the second-ranked nominee.
Once the parliament rejects a nomination, the constitution provides that the next ranked candidate is submitted for consideration.
