The West Kingston Commission of Enquiry is expected to resume today.

The enquiry is being held at the Jamaica Conference Centre in downtown Kingston.

The Commission has indicated that this session will last for three weeks ending on Thursday, November 5.

During the last session, the Commission heard more testimony from Tivoli Gardens residents who recounted their ordeals during the joint police-military operation in May 2010.

Two members of the Jamaica Defence Force also testified about extrajudicial killings by members of the Jamaica Constabulary Force.

The enquiry is looking into the circumstances surrounding the operation which was aimed at arresting then fugitive Christopher 'Dudus' Coke.

More than 70 persons were killed during the operation.
