Footage has emerged of the moment 19-year-old Nzinga King was taken into custody at the Four Paths Police Station in Clarendon in July last year.
In addition, the Director of Public Prosecutions, Paula Llewellyn has released a witness statement that seems to support her decision not to pursue criminal charges against the police involved in the matter.
In the video, Ms. King could be heard hurling expletives at the members of the constabulary in the station before threatening to kill them
The Director of Public Prosecutions, Paula Llewelyn, has given her legal opinion that the members of the constabulary accused of cutting Ms. King’s hair and assaulting her, face no criminal charges.
Though the DPP did leave the door open for potential civil charges.
In her opinion, the DPP outlined a series of events leading up to Ms. King being taken into custody.
Ms. King says on the day she was detained, she was in a taxi when she was pepper-sprayed by the police and then detained for breaching the mask regulations of the Disaster Risk Management Act.
