Report reaching the offices of the Informer Newspaper indicates that the Director of the Special Security Services at the Executive Mansion, Mr. Victor Helb has been accused of ordering the flogging of one Mr. C. Marvin McCormada in Bona Farm, Duport Road area and took away his cell phone.
During an exclusive interview with Mr. McCormada, the land administrator, explained that on the 19th of July, 2006 between the hours of 11 to 11:15pm, he was informed of a survey that was being conducted on a 9 acres of land owned by the late Jessie G. Payne for which he is an administrator.
Not taken the information lightly, Mr. McCormada said he proceeded to the sight to find out from the surveyor why he did not call the owners of the surrounding parcel of lands before conducting the survey.
Mr. McCormada said while he was interacting with the surveyor, Mr. Victor Helb who he later got to know that he was the Director of the SSS, walked before him (Mr. McCormada) and the surveyor and said that he was going to manhandle him if he will continue to confront the surveyor with questions.
Mr. McCormada said further that Mr. Helb’s action prompted him to use his cell phone in order to contact his nephew who and him are administrators of the 9 acres of land.
He said while he was communicating with his nephew, Director Helb order the two SSS officers nearby to have the phone taken away from him. He said while in the tussle to rescue his phone, his money in the tone of US385.00 got missing while the 2 SSS officers ordered by Director Helb took his phone away from him.
Mr. McComada said he has written the Ministry of Justice and the Executive Mansion complaining Mr. Helb of his behavior especially he being a Director of a bonafide security agency.
When our reporter contacted Director Helb via cell phone to give his side of the story since one week ago, he said that he could not say anything on the phone, but was going to meet with the reporter to adduce his documents of the land as evidence.
