In an online interview with SEARCHLIGHT, John noted that all his years of studying had finally paid off and said he is looking forward to putting the theory into practice.

In show of gratitude, John thanked God for his guidance and protection. He also attributed much of his success to family, especially his wife Antonio and daughter Aaliyah John.

John also thanked Prime Minister Dr Ralph Gonsalves and the Government; Lawyer, Cecil “Blazer” Williams; Director of Public Prosecutions, Colin Williams; Leroy James and Rouzendal Francis.

John obtained the degree of Bachelor of Laws, with upper second class honours, from the Holborn College in London, England, in 2009.

The veteran police officer of 22 years’ experience said he is putting the necessary arrangements in place to be called to the Bar later this year in St Vincent.

Just recently, Assistant Superintendent of Police, Reynold Hadaway, graduated from the University of Huddersfield in England with the degree of Bachelor of Laws (LLB), with lower second class honours. (KW)
