The West Kingston Commission of Enquiry into the deaths of more than 70 people during a 2010 police-military operation resumes today for its fourth session.

Public hearings are expected to start at 10 o’clock this morning at the Jamaica Conference Centre in Kingston.

Deputy Commissioner of Police, Glenmore Hinds, is expected to be the first witnesses called.

More than 30 witnesses have testified at the multimillion-dollar enquiry chaired by Barbadian Sir David Simmons.

The enquiry, which started last December, ended its third session on April 24, the same day all three commissioners and other participants toured sections of West Kingston.

This latest session of the hearings will run until June 5.
