By BBN Staff: Police Commissioner Allen Whylie says he cannot start an investigation until he has formally received copies of the Auditor General’s Special Reports on Immigration, which he has not as yet.
Whylie said he has briefed the head of National Crimes Investigation Branch (NCIB) “to be on standby in terms of putting together a team to investigate whenever those things reaches.”
The reports are all available online at the Auditor General’s website, “audit.gov.bz.”
Meanwhile, retired Superintendent of Police Julio Valdez was tasked to investigate passport irregularities, and earlier this week he called a morning talk show to say that he was directed to only focus on how PUP Attorney Arthur Saldivar had come into possession of a trove of immigration documents. Whylie said there was no such directive – and surely not from his office. If it is confirmed, he said, he will send an attorney after the ex-senior cop.
