The appointment of acting Police Commissioner Daniel Carbon has been extended.
“Acting Police Chief Mr. Daniel Carbon has been appointed to continue to act in the office of Chief of Police of the Commonwealth of Dominica Police effective October 1, 2012 to December 31, 2012,” a release from the police department said on Tuesday.
Carbon replaced Cyrille Carrette on July 7 and was to be acting commissioner until September 30.
He will now remain on the job until December 31 when a permanent replacement is found.
The extension of the post for Carbon has not been without controversy as Opposition Leader Hector John has said he was not consulted by Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit, as dictated by the Constitution.
“This is a continuation of the disrespect of the constitution because the acting commissioner was put to act for three months up to 30th September and there was no consultation,” John told DNO.
