A Special Reserved Police Constable is due in court on October 29, for breaching a Covid-19 quarantine order.
The TTPS stated that 39-year-old Wimana Combie was called by the Health Department because he had allegedly been in contact with someone who tested positive for the virus.
On Sunday 16 August, he was tested and issued with a quarantine order for 14 days, until August 29, which he voluntarily signed.
The order stated that the officer was assessed and found to be a possible risk for the transmission of the virus.
The Chief Medical Officer (CMO) of Trinidad and Tobago (TT), who is the Quarantine Authority, in accordance with the Quarantine Act directed that Combie be quarantined for observation for 14 days.
During this period, he would not be allowed to leave his place of abode and failing to comply with these quarantine directions would be liable to conviction of a fine and imprisonment.
However, Combie was reportedly seen at business places and other public spaces and concerned citizens contacted the Health Authority after which a report was made to police.
Sergeant Yorke attached to the Shirvan Road Police Station conducted enquiries and subsequently laid the charge.
