Special adviser to Governor General Sir Patrick Allen, Evadne Coye, has revealed that Opposition Leader Andrew Holness has already received a response from that office to his request for the head of state's intervention to allow the completion of the commission of enquiry into the operation of the Financial Sector Adjustment Company (FINSAC).

In a letter to The Gleaner, Coye revealed that in correspondence to Holness, dated January 11, "Sir Patrick advised him of the initiatives he has taken to date and of his instruction that the commissioners meet with him during this month.

Coye also highlighted the need for a meeting with Holness "once he has concluded those consultations".

Added Coye: "When these meetings and consultations are concluded, the governor general will make a public statement."

Coye, who was responding to The Gleaner's revelation on Tuesday that Holness had sent the request, stressed that the letter was not "an instruction from the leader of the opposition for the governor general to oblige the Government to bring closure to the FINSAC commission of enquiry".
