The West Kingston Commission of Enquiry will tomorrow visit the Tivoli Gardens community where a police-military operation in 2010 ended with the deaths of more than 70 people.

Chairman of the Enquiry, Sir David Simmons, disclosed this morning that the visit will last for about three hours.

He says each organisation or person with standing at the enquiry will be allowed two representatives for the visit.

The security forces entered Tivoli Gardens in May 2010 in search of then fugitive Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke.

He is now serving a prison sentence in the United States.

The incidents surrounding the operation in the community and the resulting deaths formed the basis for the establishment of the Commission of Enquiry.
