West Kingston Enquiry to resume today

Published:Monday | September 7, 2015 | 9:17 AM

Public hearings at the West Kingston Commission of Enquiry are expected to resume this morning in Kingston with more testimonies from Tivoli residents. 

Proceedings have been on break since July.

The commission is chaired by Barbadian, Sir David Simmons.

He is assisted by retired high court judge Hazel Harris and university professor, Anthony Harriott.

The enquiry, which started on December one last year, is looking into the circumstances surrounding a 2010 police-military operation that left more than 70 civilians dead.

That operation was aimed at capturing then donman, Christopher 'Dudus' Coke who was wanted in the US. 

So far, former Prime Minister, Bruce Golding, former members of his Cabinet, high ranking military and police officials and several Tivoli residents have given testimonies.

Following the September session, there will be two others leading to the end of public hearings on December 11.
