“Without prejudice to the case involving the former governor, the report is incorrect as the commission has yet to declare Matawalle wanted or solicit the assistance of any agency, including the DSS, to effect his arrest.

“The commission has standard procedure for declaring persons wanted and communicating same to the public, not through faceless “security sources,” the commission added.
