Questions over police payout to law firm to be addressed in States
Tuesday 26th February 2013, 5:00PM GMT.
HOME minister Jonathan Le Tocq will tomorrow make a statement about the taxpayer money that has been spent in costs and damages following an unlawful police raid on a law firm’s premises.
Deputy Le Tocq, pictured, who is also deputy chief minister, confirmed that he would be addressing questions raised by Vale States member Matt Fallaize, which relate to two years of legal argument over a police raid on AFR Advocates’ Court Place headquarters at 3am in June 2010.
The Guernsey Press has been rebuffed despite several attempts to get Treasury and Resources to release the figures.
‘I will be making a statement in the States on Wednesday. That is the proper way of dealing with matters,’ Deputy Le Tocq said yesterday.
‘States members should be informed first before the media. [The statement] will certainly be addressing the questions raised.’
