    Police Commissioner Gary Griffith says recent police searches in La Romaine, were conducted for a specific purpose and not based on race, politics or religion.

    Mr Griffith says he was not in the country when a number of houses in the affluent area were searched, but adding that he has since been briefed on the exercise, which was carried based on a specific purpose.

    He says that reason would be revealed at the appropriate time, but insists that the TTPS did not act based on any prejudices linked to “race, religion or colour of houses”.

    He says the TTPS acts without favour or affection, malice or ill will, and any notion to the contrary could be considered as pure mischief.
