The Opposition Leader Andrew Holness has declared that the Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) wants to participate in the upcoming Commission of Enquiry.

Holness was speaking last night at the constituency conference of the JLP Area Council One at the Denham Town Community Centre in West Kingston.

His comments come weeks after claims that the JLP did not want people to testify at the enquiry.

Last night, Holness disclosed that the JLP will provide legal assistance to the people of West Kingston who want to participate in Enquiry.

Holness was an MP under the Bruce Golding-led JLP administration in 2010 when the security forces went into West Kingston in search of crime lord Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke.

Some 73 people were killed in the operation.

According to Holness, the Jamaica Labour Party wants West Kingston residents to tell their story to the commission.

Last night, Holness also took aim at the governing People’s National Party accusing it of being bad government.

He says the PNP has eroded all the national gains achieved in crime fighting, health care and education, as well economic growth and stability.
