Prime Minister, Dr. Keith Rowley, has described as "deeply offensive" a newspaper article suggesting the Parliament's investigation into the selection process for Police Commissioner was launched because the top candidate, Deodat Dulalchan, is of East Indian descent.

The article in the Express Newspaper was written by one of its columnists, Michael Harris.

Dr. Rowley has written to the newspaper stating that the article was an "uninformed piece of misrepresentation."

In his letter, Dr. Rowley reminded that earlier this year, he moved a Motion in the House of Representatives proposing the establishment of a Special Select Committee to review the PSC's process of appointment.

He said the Hansard would show that at that sitting, Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar had supported the setting up of the Committee and that there was no support on the Opposition benches then for Mr. Dulalchan.

The Prime Minister said he would like those bent on destroying the beauty of our people and the fabric of this land by using the regrettable behaviour of race-baiting to stop.
