Tivoli Enquiry: Hearing could exceed three months

Published:Monday | December 1, 2014 | 4:42 PM

Chairman of the Tivoli Commission of Enquiry, Sir David Simmons has indicated that the sittings could go beyond the three-month timeline set by the Government.

"I think it is clear to all that we can't conclude the public hearings in 90 days with so many witnesses for cross examination and so on," he said.

However, Simmons said the stakeholders are to ensure that they are efficient, sensitive to time, sensitive to the money that is involved and sensitive to the rights of all concerned.

The Commission has been asked to make a full report and recommendations within two months of the end of the enquiry.

The Commission will sit in sessions, each lasting 10 days, over the period allotted for the hearing.

The hearings begin at 10 o'clock in the mornings and end at 4:30 in the afternoon.
