KINGSTON, Jamaica:

Attorney for the Association of Finsac’d Entrepreneurs, Kent Gammon, says the group plans to write to Governor General, Sir Patrick Allen, to press their demand for the FINSAC Commissioners to produce a report from the Enquiry.

There have been renewed public cries for the FINSAC commissioners to produce a report in light of revelations that the Government is spending more than $300 million to fund the West Kingston Commission of Enquiry.

However, the FINSAC report has been in limbo since 2011 as the government has refused to provide the 10 to 20 million dollars needed to complete the report.

Gammon says the disregard being shown to the FINSAC Commission is shameful.

He says the Governor General must take steps to get the FINSAC Commissioners to produce a report.

In 2013, the Association of FINSAC’d Entrepreneur took the FINSAC Commission to court seeking an order compelling them to produce a report.

The Supreme Court however ruled that only the Governor General has the authority to compel the commissioners to furnish a report.
