Allegations of assault against cops reach civil court

| 22/07/2014

(CNS): Some five years after she was arrested, a civil claim made by Clover Powery against the police for assault when she was being taken into custody is beginning its journey through the courts this week. Powery filed a suit against constables Damian Anderson, Kayla Levy and the Attorney-General in connection with injuries she says she sustained while in the hands of the local cops. Powery's case is set for a closed door hearing Wednesday before Justice Williams but the matter is expected to go to trial. Although details of the case have not yet been revealed Powery is looking for damages as she says she was assaulted by the officers and then handcuffed while her arm was injured.
