WEST KINGSTON ENQUIRY: Scheduling clashes force early break

Published:Monday | July 6, 2015 | 7:12 PM

The West Kingston Commission of Enquiry has been forced to take break earlier than expected because of an apparent scheduling clash at the Jamaica Conference Centre.

The enquiry, which has been taking place at the downtown Kingston facility since its start last year, was due to break on Friday and resume in September.

However, the chairman had to cancel this week after it was discovered that a previous event scheduled for the conference centre was scheduled to start today.

This is another setback for the multimillion-dollar enquiry which has been trying to make up time.

It was initially scheduled to be completed in three months, however, that time has been exceeded.

The hearings are organised in sessions which usually last two to three weeks.

The enquiry, which is in its fifth session, is looking into the circumstances surrounding the May 2010 joint police/military operation to nab Christopher 'Dudus' Coke, which left more than 70 civilians dead
