INMATES DEATH
Following a probe by the Inspectorate of Constabulary (IOC) into the circumstances
surrounding the death of 31-year-old Mario Dean on Wednesday, August 6, six Police
officers have been interdicted and suspended with immediate effect.
Among the officers interdicted are: two Police Corporals and one Police Constable, while
three District Constables were suspended; all attached to the Barnett Street Police Station in
St. James. The officers, who were on duty when Mario Deane was allegedly beaten by
prisoners in his cell on Sunday, August 3, were interdicted pending the investigations into the
matter.
Meanwhile, Acting Commissioner of Police, Glenmore Hinds is urging for patience while the
investigations continue.
We are urging citizens to remain calm and are appealing to relatives to support the
Independent Commission of Investigations (INDECOM) and Police investigators in their
probe. We are assuring the citizenry that the JCF recognises the duty of care and we will be
unrelenting in this regard, especially as it relates to persons in our custody, said Acting
Commissioner Hinds.
The two men, 25-year-old Adrian Morgan and 35-year-old Marvin Orr who have been
charged with the murder of Deane, will appear before the Montego Bay Resident
Magistrates Court on Wednesday, August 13.
