Police Officers Dismissed for Unlawful Killings

The Inspector-General of the Sierra Leone Police, Francis Alieu Munu, has informed journalists that two police officers involved in the unlawful killings of two members of the public have been dismissed and promptly handed over to the Criminal Investigation Department for further action.

He relayed the information on Tuesday, June 24, 2015, during the usual police press conference at Police Headquarters in Freetown.

The Inspector-General disclosed that the decision to dismiss the two officers was a result of the internal investigations and findings of the disciplinary tribunal which proved that the two officers were involved in the two incidents which resulted in the unlawful killing of two people, one by shooting and the other by brutalization in custody.

Francis Munu noted that whenever an incident occurs, especially one involving a member of the public losing his or her life, the Sierra Leone Police acts swiftly to address the issues involved and if it is the case that their officers have acted outside their operational rules, procedures and mandates, they take very prompt action to address such matters.

He noted that since the rebranding of the SLP as “A Force for Good,” the institution prides itself as being truly responsible and they have tried always to keep the image of the force beyond reproach by providing a comprehensive package of services for the populace.

IG Munu observed that with all the numerous good deeds they perform each day in especially local communities, they are fully aware that such good deeds are left mostly unreported by the press unless there is bad news.

The police chief pointed out that the SLP is a very large organization with over 12.000 men and women who work tirelessly everyday to keep the peace, maintain law and order and protect the lives and properties of everybody in this country.
