Chairman of the enquiry, Sir David Simmons, is to rule at two o’clock today whether to re-admit convenor of the Tivoli Committee Lloyd D’Aguilar to the proceedings.

D’Aguilar was removed from the proceedings on the second day of sittings last year after continuous outbursts at the commission.

Attorney-at-law, Carol Dacosta, who represents the Tivoli Committee, made an application this morning to have the social activist re-admitted into the proceedings as an observer.

Most of the lawyers appearing at the commission said they would support the chairman's decision.

Sir David agreed with the counsel for the commission, Garth McBean that D’Aguilar did not make a full apology or withdraw his controversial comments.

D’Aguilar has accused Sir David of being a political hack and described the enquiry as Kangaroo Court and a farce.
