The Attorney General's Office has yet to receive the police reports detailing what happened that led to the arrest of Customs director Ike Peredo.


Mr. Peredo was arrested by airport police officers, booked, and released following a female Customs officer's complaint that he assaulted her last week.


"As of earlier today, we still had not received police reports," AG's spokeswoman Carlina Charfauros told Kandit this evening.


Sources within Customs say the argument that preceded the alleged assault was regarding Mr. Peredo's reprimand of the officer for contesting the special treatment of some incoming passengers at the airport and allowing those passengers to escape from required quarantine screening.
