Former head of the Special weapons and Tactics Unit, Deputy Superintendent, Mootie Dookie, is back on the job and in uniform.
This was confirmed by Commissioner of Police acting, David Ramnarine, who said that departmental charges were recommended against the officer but, those chares cannot be instituted in the absence of the police Service Commission.
Ramnarine told a press conference today that Dookie’s file was already sent to the secretary of the Police Service Commission and when the members of the commission are sworn in, it is expected that the matter will come up for discussion and possible penalties.
Dookie was caught in a bus on Old Year’s Day last year when he should not have been out of his service area. He was caught on the Corentyne Coast, along with another man. In that vehicle also were more than thirty cases of smuggled whiskey.
Dookie, as a senior officer, was detained and subsequently the subject of a Guyana Revenue Authority probe and also an internal investigation by the police force.
Today, Ramnarine confirmed that Dookie is now serving as the No. 2 Sub Divisional Officer in ‘A’ Division. While he is answerable to the Commander and Deputy Commander of the Division, Dookie is commanding one of the largest sub divisions in the country and which has the size of the entire ‘G’ Division.
Mootie Dookie prior to the whisky scandal, was bot new to scandal and several other issues, in the past, one of which even resulted in then President Donald Ramotar ordering the return of his firearm after that was taken away by the administration of the force.
