Former National Security Minister Dr Peter Phillips yesterday battled unrelentingly with Frank Phipps, the attorney representing the Jamaica Labour Party, at the Manatt-Dudus commission of enquiry.

At the centre of clash were two controversial memoranda of understanding (MOU) signed by Phillips in 2004.

Phillips maintained that the contents of the secret MOU, aspects of which came perilously close to being revealed yesterday, were in conformity with Jamaican laws.
