Tivoli Enquiry: Witness takes stand behind closed door

Published:Friday | December 5, 2014 | 12:02 PM

The West Kingston Commission of Enquiry this morning heard evidence from witness number nine outside of the earshot of members of the media and spectators as it continues to probe the controversial police-military operation of May 2010.



The witness had requested to give evidence without members of the public or the media being present.



This morning, commission chairman, Sir David Simmons, instructed the media to exit before the start of the proceedings.



Sir David had made it clear on the first day of the enquiry that while the hearing is open to the public, there are some aspects which would be heard in private.



The eight previous West Kingston residents who appeared before the commission 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.
