Although departmental charges were recommended against him after he was caught smuggling alcohol, Deputy Superintendent Motie Dookie has resumed full duties with acting Police Commissioner David Ramnarine defending the decision.The former Special Weapons And Tactics (SWAT) Unit Commander was busted back in December during a routine roadblock on the Corentyne, smuggling some 30 cases of Johnny Walker whisky into the country from neighbouring Suriname.He has since been removed as SWAT Commander and was temporarily posted at the Force’s Strategic Planning Unit doing a desk job. However, it was revealed that Dookie is now the Number Two Sub-Division Officer of A Division (Georgetown-East Bank Demerara).In defending the move, Ramnarine explained that while all the processes available to the Force’s administration were adhered to regarding Dookie’s case, the organisation could not have afforded to keep the former SWAT boss confined toActing Top Cop David Ramnarine“four walls”, given that the hierarchy of the country’s premier law enforcement agency is suffering.The acting Top Cop pointed out that the Force has lost 15 senior officers in the past two and a half years to retirement, while about five to seven senior officers from the rank of Superintendent up are currently on lengthy outstanding annual vacation leave.On this note, he added that after the embattled Deputy Superintendent’s circumstances were reviewed, it was found that he has some 100-plus days of annual leave outstanding as well, hence a decision was taken to have him proceed on leave, which he agreed to.“He is entitled to due process, a part (of which) has been completed… Dookie being a Deputy Superintendent of Police, therefore, in the circumstances which the Force has to be superintended on a daily basis, couldn’t find himself anymore in four walls… And so on his return, he was sent to A Division to perform duties in uniform – general duties…,” Ramnarine stated.With regard to the smuggling case, the acting Police Commissioner told reporters during the press briefing that the Force’s administration has completed its work and departmental charges were recommended. That file has been sent to the Police Service Commission for further action. However, with the Service Commission not operational since the life of the body expired last year and a newDeputy Superintendent Motie Dookieone was yet to be appointed, no further action has been taken.“When the Service Commission is reconstituted, another course of action may follow which may necessarily see the matter, depending on the course of action taken by the new Service Commission, return to the Police Force,” Ramnarine stated.Dookie’s resumption of duties comes months after President David Granger told the Annual Police Officers’ Conference earlier this year that the practice of transferring and demoting rogue elements will not bring an end to the scourge of corruption within the Force.The Head of State’s comment at the time was in relation to Dookie’s temporary transfer to the Force’s Strategic Unit. He had said that corruption within the law enforcement agency could not be cured by ignoring it.“Dookie’s law teaches that if corruption is concealed, it will continue. Transferring a corrupt officer from one branch to another, or posting him from one Division to another, or promoting him, or demoting him from one rank to another, cannot guarantee he will change his wicked ways,” the President had stated.He went on to say that senior officers turning a blind eye to corruption put the lives of not only honest Police ranks on the line but those of the public as well.

India’s head coach Michael Nobbs admitted on Sunday that four successive defeats at London Olympics could have adversely affected the confidence of the team.After defeats to the Netherlands, New Zealand and Germany, India went down 1-4 to Korea, a team they had had success against in the recent past.”The performance so far has been very disappointing and unacceptable, but we need to remember that we haven’t been at this level for eight years. Maybe the first three games have taken their toll on ability to believe in ourselves,” the Australian told Mail Today after Sunday’s defeat.The coach was especially frustrated that his team could not capitalise on the chances they created against the Koreans before conceding three goals in the last 12 minutes.”We played well for the first 50 minutes and let ourselves down by not taking our chances.” Drag-flicker Sandeep Singh was expected to be one of India’s main weapons, but the occasion seemed to have got the better of him.”It looks like he may have succumbed to the pressure as up until this, he had an 82 per cent success rate and now some of his corners almost fail to make the goal line,” Nobbs said.

Former Test bowler Lonwabo Tsotsobe has been banned for eight years, taking to seven the number of South African players kicked out of the game for their part in a 2015 match-fixing scandal, Cricket South Africa said on Tuesday.The 33-year-old, who played in five Tests and 61 One-Day Internationals, was charged in April with contriving to fix or improperly influence matches in the South Africa domestic Twenty20 Series and seeking to accept, or agreeing to accept, a bribe.Tsotsobe admitted one charge of contriving to fix a match and nine separate charges of failing to co-operate properly with various investigations.”I was, at the time, in a very vulnerable financial state and this dilemma too easily persuaded me to participate in spot fixing,” he said in a statement.”There are no words to describe the regret I have in relation to my actions and I hope that the cricket world could consider my apology and understand my deepest feeling of remorse.”Gulam Bodi, Jean Symes, Pumi Matshikwe, Ethy Mbhalati, Thami Tsolekile and Alviro Petersen were previously banned for between two and 20 years for their part in the scandal, although CSA has long held that no matches were actually fixed.
