Police Chief Daniel Carbon has confirmed that the police are questioning Earl ‘Seko’ Grant as their investigations continue in the matter of suspected arson at the home of former magistrate, GON Emanuel in December 2010.
Grant has been implicated in the “fire bombing” by Denny Shillingford who confessed to committing the crime.
He was out of the country for the past three years but returned on Sunday night at the request of Ag. DPP, Julien Prevost, and was immediately arrested by the police on his arrival at Melville Hall airport.
“Seko Earl Grant ….the investigators have been given clear guidelines and given proper instructions that they must investigate this matter professionally with the view to find the truth,” Carbon told State radio DBS on Wednesday May 29, 2013.
However, Dominica News Online has learned from sources close to the investigation that a charge of “conspiracy” is expected to be filed against Grant.
“He is in police custody and an interrogation involving both Grant and Shillingford is ongoing in the presence of his lawyer,” the source revealed.
Under the constitution, Grant can be held by the police for interrogation for 72 hours without charges(s) and that time will elapse sometime this evening (May 29).
