I am preparing my witness statement, says Bruce Golding
Livern Barrett, Gleaner Writer
Former Prime Minister Bruce Golding says he is now preparing his witness statement to be submitted to the West Kingston Commission of Enquiry.
Golding made the disclosure in an email to The Gleaner as he sought to make it clear that he was not reluctant to appear before the enquiry.
The Gleaner reported today that Golding, along with former National Security Minister Dwight Nelson, former army chief Major General Stewart Saunders, retired Police Commissioner Owen Ellington and popular pastor Bishop Herro Blair have been given until January 7 next year to submit witness statements to the commission or risk being summoned.
"Lest the impression be conveyed by your article that I am either unwilling or reluctant to appear before the Commission, please be advised that a formal request from the Commission was received two weeks ago," the former prime minister wrote.
"My statement is being prepared for submission to the Commission", he said.
