Chief Executive Officer
Siparia Regional Corporation
Chronic under-staffing within the T&T
Police Service Court and Process Branch
has been identified as a major factor affect-
ing the efficency in transportation of pris-
oners to and from the nation s court.
The issue was raised by head of the
department, Senior Supt Kenneth Cordner
as he sought to give an explanation for the
virtual shutdown of criminal courts in Port-
of-Spain earlier this week because of the
absence of remand prisoners.
Cordner was summoned to court yester-
day by the presiding judge in the Vindra
Naipaul-Coolman murder trial, Malcolm
Holdip, after he (Holdip) was forced to
adjourn the high profile case over three con-
secutive days this week.
As he was being questioned by Holdip,
Cordner admitted that only 35 police officers
were currently assigned to the Hall of Jus-
tice---half the complement required for
guarding prisoners and the courtrooms at
the Hall of Justice.
He said that 24 officers were absent on
Monday because of gridlock caused by
nationwide roadblocks, with an average of
ten missing work on Tuesday and Wednes-
day for various reasons including vacation,
maternity and sick leave.
"Because of this low strength it would
not have been prudent in the interest of
safety, to escort the prisoners as normal,"
Despite admitting to the staff issues
affecting his department, Cordner sought
to divert blame to the Prison Service for
the situation on Wednesday when four of
the 12 men on trial before Holdip were not
transfered from the Port-of-Spain State
"It is out of our hands if prisoners are
not handed over to us. We always arrive on
time but we have no say when we reach
the prisons," Cordner said.
Asked about what measures were being taken to
rectify the situation, Cordner said the police service
was currently engaged in a major recruitment drive.
However, he admitted the process was tedious and
Holdip urged Cordner to find a temporary solution
as he stated that this week s delays had significantly
impacted on all parties involved in the trial.
"It is not like we got a day off. We have things
planned and prepared and this just scrambles our
day," Holdip said.
