Mr Cooper was hospitalised for a prolonged period since 2021, during which he was also in a coma, Police Headquarters noted in a brief press release.

Commissioner of Police (ag), Clifton Hicken, Commander of Region Three, Assistant Commissioner Mahendra Siwnarine and other police ranks met with the grieving family at their home earlier Saturday.

Mr. Cooper in my opinion has gone too soon. However, he has left a rich legacy. My sympathy goes out to his bereaved family. may his soul rest in peace and rise in glory.
