Constable in St. Catherine Charged for Corruption
On Friday June 15, 2018, Constable Nickino Mullings of the St. Catherine North Division was arrested and charged for breaches of the Corruption Prevention Act 2000 by detectives from MOCA.
Allegations are that on the abovementioned date, Constable Mullings who was on duty at the State of Emergency Checkpoint located at Angels’ Spanish Town, St. Catherine, signaled the complainant to stop. Constable Mullings requested the motor vehicle documents and the complainant complied. He then asked the complainant to read a line from the Certificate of Insurance to which the complainant indicated that he could not read well. In response Mullings corruptly solicited Twenty Thousand Dollars ($20,000.00) and later accepted Five Thousand Dollars ($5,000.00) from the complainant in order not to impound the motor vehicle and revoke his licence.
A report was subsequently made to MOCA and a Sting Operation conducted, during which Constable Mullings was arrested and subsequently charged for breaches of the Corruption Prevention Act 2000. He was offered bail in the sum of Three Hundred and Fifty Thousand Dollars ($350,000.00) when he appeared before the St. Catherine Parish Court and is set to return to court on September 1, 2018.
