The Association of FINSAC’d Entrepreneurs is heading to court today as it attempts to get the FINSAC Commission of Enquiry to produce an interim report.




The matter is being heard in the Supreme Court.



The association, which is being represented by Attorney-at-Law Kent Gammon, is seeking leave to the Judicial Review Court.



It wants an order from the court to compel the Commissioners to produce the report.



The association believes the document can be produced based on the testimonies heard during the enquiry.



The Commission was set up to examine the 1990s financial sector meltdown which saw the collapse of thousands of businesses.



The FINSAC’d association is contending that given that scores of businesses suffered during the 1990s meltdown, the government has a duty to ensure that any injustice is uncovered and the perpetrators prosecuted.



The Government has maintained that it will not spend any more money on the Finsac Commission.



The Commission ended its settings in 2011.
