Tivoli Enquiry to hear in-camera evidence today

Published:Thursday | December 4, 2014 | 8:56 AM

The Tivoli Commission of Enquiry is to have its first in-camera testimony today when the sitting continues at the Jamaica Conference centre in downtown Kingston.

In camera is a legal term used to describe proceedings which the public and the media are not allowed to observe.

On the first day of the hearings, chairman of the commission, Sir David Simmons had indicated that while the enquiry is open to the public, there are some aspects which will be heard in private.

Today’s testimonies are to come from three more civilian witnesses.

So, far the commission has heard testimony from six West Kingston residents.

These residents have described being brutalised at the hands of members of the security forces and losing valuable property during the operation to arrest convicted gangster Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke in May 2010.
