By BBN Staff: Compol Whylie was asked by Senator Ashley Rocke if it would have been hard to investigate a department where he was once the CEO.
“I am a no nonsense person, I stand for discipline, fair play and I have no fear to investigate anybody and anyone worse knowing that I had nothing to do with anything that had occurred,” Whylie stated.
The immigration department was being investigated for the portion of the period that Whylie was the CEO.
“I don’t think that my browsing through the report says anywhere that I did anything because people who know me know that I do not tolerate non sense and wrong doing, I can put my reputation and my head on the block I knew nothing of or I would have addressed it,” he continued.
Whylie told the committee that most critical issues lands on his dead once it is criminal and it require police intervention.
According to Whylie, he would delegate issues to other senior police officers.
While Whylie agrees that the safety and security and prevention and detection of crime is his responsibility, he believes that he didn’t do anything unreasonable and irrational in relation to the investigation into the Won Hong Kim matter.
“ I believe I did nothing wrong and up to today’s date, I believe that I did nothing wrong,” Whylie alluded.
According to Whylie, since the auditor general was doing an investigation, he didn’t feel that the resources of the police doing a parallel investigation into the Won Hong Kim file would be useful.
Whylie said that he did obey the order of the CJ and an investigation was done.
In defending himself, Whylie told the committee that he did not stop Retired Assistant Supt. Julio Valdez from conducting the investigation.
