Reply from the Minister of Police on 11 Jan 2022

 

  1. It’s a Presidential prerogative to suspend the National Commissioner, up to this far we have not been advised by the Presidency along those lines,
  2. Commissioner is responsible for that function; again Ministry has not yet been advised as such.
  3. Action would have been taken by the Presidency regarding National Commissioner and by National Commissioner concerning the two Lt. Generals
