ATTORNEY-General Tim Le Cocq says he was not behind the disciplinary action against the three police officers cleared last week of misconduct over the operation to arrest drugs baron Curtis Warren.

The officers - Chief Inspector David Minty, Inspector Louis Beghin and Detective Sergeant Lawrence Courtness - issued a statement yesterday saying that they felt aggrieved by the Attorney General's decision 'to personally lay a complaint' against them, adding that the disciplinary process has had a very serious effect on their health, career and families.

But Advocate Le Cocq, who was unavailable to comment before the JEP went to press yesterday, says that he was not behind the complaint.
