More time for Manatt

Published:Saturday | March 26, 2011 | 3:00 AM

THE MANATT-Dudus commission of enquiry has been granted another extension.

Chairman of the commission Emil George disclosed that he has been given until May 16 to complete his work. However, George said he hoped that the cross-examination of all witnesses would be completed by next week Friday.

The commission was scheduled to end in February but delays and lengthy cross-examinations forced Governor General Sir Patrick Allen to grant an extension to March 31.

But with less than a week before that deadline, Prime Minister Bruce Golding is still on the witness stand after facing only three attorneys: Hugh Small, his attorney; Frank Phipps, the lawyer for the Jamaica Labour Party; and K.D. Knight, the attorney for the People's National Party.
