KINGSTON, Jamaica:

The eighth witness at the Tivoli Commission of Enquiry, Nicola Bryce Wilson, has said she is not appearing before the commission in hopes of getting compensation but to ensure the events of May 2010 are not repeated.

Attorney for the Jamaica Constabulary Force, Valerie Neita Robertson, had suggested that the witness had embellished aspects of her statement after hearing there would be a commission of enquiry.

However, Bryce Wilson said she had no reason to as she was not at the enquiry to seek money.

Meanwhile, Bryce Wilson has testified that a soldier, who shot her in the breast and leg, later told her he was sorry for shooting her.

Bryce Wilson says she was shot in her left breast and left leg on Monday, May 24, 2010, but was made to remain in a house in the community until Wednesday.

She said weeks later, her son was able to identify the soldier who attacked her.

She said when she confronted the soldier called 'Baby Shrek' by residents, he apologised and said he was glad she had not died.
