<<<Looking like Popeye with no more spinach, once again Hubert Ingraham (Right) ran out of the House of Assembly today as the brilliant Alfred Sears showed up the weak legal minds behind the FNM proposed term limits for the commissioner of police.
Nassau, Bahamas: The IGNORANCE of Hubert Ingraham and some persons who sit around the Cabinet of the Bahamas came to light today, as a scholar of the law and member of parliament for the Fort Charlotte constituency Alfred Sears, reminded parliamentarians that the office of commissioner of police is a constitutionally entrenched office in the Bahamas. He therefore added that the office of Commissioner cannot be confined to term limits as being proposed in a bill tabled in the House by the Ingraham government.
The government is proposing to limit the years a commissioner of police can serve contractually. Sears, the MP most supported by Bahamas Press to lead the PLP, used decisions handed down by courts around the world to confirm that the office cannot be tampered with so easily. Sears also explained the procedure for the removal of a commissioner and charged that the Ingraham government bearing the facts, has UNCONSTITUTIONALLY removed two past commissioners of police.
Bahamas Press accepts that Ingraham clearly knows no better or simply does not respect the laws of the Bahamas. And now with this new bill, he is attempting to tamper with the Constitution of the Bahamas! THIS SPEAKS VOLUMES OF THE MAN WE LIKEN TO MUGABE!
There is no telling what MUGABE WOULD DO to have his way in the country. First his government fired thousands of government workers (1,200 to be exact in 2007). According to reports have pressured to early retirement some 42 senior officers of the RBPF. Dismissed the high command officers of the Immigration department and of the Customs department, suggesting that his government intends to weed out corrupt element of the public service.
These are the same kind of actions a Robert Mugabe did in Zimbabwe, and now his twin brother Ingraham is trying to establish a similar record of LAWBREAKING here in the Bahamas.
The supreme LAW OF THE LAND is the constitution. It is a living and breathing document and NO ONE, not even Hubert Ingraham can have his way attempting to change constitutional positions to suit his corrupt intentions.
Bahamas Press rejects the idea of moving a commissioner of police for purely political purposes, and equally REJECTS the DISTASTEFUL ACTIONS OF INGRAHAM WHO IS CLEARLY IGNORANT OF THE LAWS OF THE BAHAMAS!
Ingraham if you want to go against the constitution of the Bahamas and fix limits on the commissioner of police follow the constitution of the country and call a referendum to do so, otherwise do the next best thing for all Bahamians, RESIGN AS PRIME MINISTER!
