Commissioner of Police says Fareed Ahmad murder case “not exhausted” – but job will not be easy

By Aaron Humes: Commissioner of Police Chester Williams insists the file on Fareed Ahmad is not exhausted, but investigators’ job has been made harder with the gaping lack of evidence against any one, even Corporal of Police Elmer Nah.

The Commissioner, who was part of the investigation as head of the Professional Standards Branch (PSB) at the time, said they did their best to find any evidence substantiating claims of involvement of the Special Assignment Teams (SAT), in which Corporal Nah and accused Constable Michelle Brown both participated, and found no evidence that Nah was at the scene of the accident on the night of December 28, 2017: “At no point in time during that entire investigation did any of the witnesses that were interviewed, and these were eye-see witnesses that were interviewed, made mention to the fact of there being a third person in the vehicle. All the witnesses who we spoke to said that they saw the vehicle crashing, they heard the bang coming from inside the vehicle, they saw the vehicle crashing, they went directly to the vehicle. At no point in time did they lose sight of the vehicle while they were going to the vehicle and when they got there, all they saw were two persons inside the vehicle.”

And he added that even with all the evidence seemingly pointing to one person’s involvement, that person – WPC Brown – was found not guilty, and has since reportedly left the country. Even with her public accusation against Corporal Nah at her trial, which was said in her own defense and could easily be torn down in cross-examination, where would police start a new investigation, the Commissioner asked? “Who are we going to interview – the same people that we interviewed, because those were the only witnesses that were there?” He continued that police could not try to coerce witnesses to change their stories because they would have no credibility in court, especially if they testified before. As many as 30 persons testified in the 2020 trial of Michelle Brown.

But the Commissioner held out hope, saying that if there was anyone else who saw something, kindly come forward, as the case is not “completely exhausted” – and the police certainly have nothing to hide in accepting new accounts.
