KINGSTON, Jamaica:

Opposition Leader Andrew Holness has written to Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller regarding the appointment of persons to serve as commissioners for the West Kingston Commission of Enquiry.




Holness says he wants to be informed of the terms of reference of the enquiry before the appointment of commissioners given the importance and sensitivity of the matter.



He believes that public interest will be best served by a process of consultation with the Opposition prior to the selection of terms of reference for the Enquiry and persons to serve as commissioners.



The government announced in May last year that a Commission of Enquiry will be convened to, among other things, look into the operations of the security forces during the May 2010 incursion.



More than 70 people were killed during the operation into the West Kingston in search of then fugitive Christopher 'Dudus' Coke.
