PCA makes recommendations to DPP on fatal 2020 police shooting

The Police Complaints Authority (PCA) has released its findings and recommendations to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) on the 2020 police shooting that left a pregnant woman dead.

In a statement on Friday, the PCA said its report was sent to the DPP on Thursday, June 30.

The authority has opened multiple investigations into reports of gunfire, brutality and police misconduct following the deaths of three men in Second Caledonia, Morvant at the hands of TTPS officers on June 26 2020. This was done in accordance with PCA Section 26 Chap 15:05.

During one of the protests, an expectant mother of five identified as Ornella Greaves left her home in Beetham Gardens to observe what was happening and was fatally shot by police gunfire.

Two other citizens said they were shot while running for cover when police began shooting during the protests.

During its investigations, the PCA team reviewed the available documentary and medical evidence; statements from victims and those present at the demonstrations; police reports; evidence obtained from CCTV footage and digital information, as well as the findings of an independent expert witness.

“The PCA wishes to inform the public that its findings and recommendations were sent to the DPP’s office on June 30, 2022. As an independent oversight body, the PCA is committed to ensuring that no police officer acts in the above the rule of law and to empower citizens to report incidents of police misconduct and/or criminal activity.”
