The Police Complaints Authority (PCA) is the best independent body to conduct an investigation into the New Flying Squad Investigation Unit (NFSIU) and its leader Mervyn Cordner.
This is the suggestion from activist group Fixin' T&T which yesterday supported the call by the PCA director Gillian Lucky for an investigation to determine the involvement of police officers in the Flying Squad.
Fixin' T&T also believes that the PCA has the authority to conduct such an investigation.
Waithe said in a statement: "We applaud the position taken by Police Complaints Authority (PCA) Director Gillian Lucky on this issue and believe that the PCA, an independent body, is ideally suited to conduct same."
The lobby group said that it "categorically rejects Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar's attempt to distance herself from the efforts to revive the Flying Squad", adding that Persad-Bissessar is on record as stating that this issue was one for the consideration of the Minister of National Security.
"We hold her wholly responsible for this and the many other 'missteps' that include the Reshmi Ramnarine debacle, the ill-conceived State of Emergency and the Section 34 fiasco. She must now immediately remove Mr Jack Warner from all Cabinet, Ministerial and National Security Council posts pending the outcome of investigations into these and all other allegations of impropriety levelled against him. "
The Sunday Express also learnt that the Integrity Commission is continuing its investigation into complaints of alleged breaches of the Integrity in Public Life Act by the National Security Minister.
Fixin' T&T had written to the Commission resulting in Waithe being interviewed by the Commission in the matter.
On January 31, 2013, the Commission's Registrar Martin Farrell wrote to Waithe drawing reference to his letters of complaint against Warner, dated April 2, 2012 and July 26, 2012 about breaches by Warner with respect to his affiliation with FIFA, the world governing body for football and the Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation (TTFF).
"These matters are still engaging the attention of the Commission," Farrell has said.
