Early Friday July 24, Harmon visited the High Court in Georgetown where the COI sessions are facilitated.
According to a release from his office, the Minister told the staff, “It seems to me you seem quite ready to resume the hearings and I trust that when the Commissioners come in tomorrow that they will find you as ready as they have always found you.”
Minister Harmon wants the Commission to be able to wrap up its work within the time period set by President David Granger. He says “they must be able to conclude their work and report”.
He also lauded the efforts of the staff as he observed that they have always been professional and diligent workers, urging them to continue as this will allow for the transfer of those skills to other commissions government intend to set up, and to other areas of work countrywide.
Harmon revealed that on Monday when the tenth session of the COI begins there will be “sort of a wrapping up of submissions, and the attorneys who had actually been presenting these submissions have been identified”.
He says in some cases they will bring their work together so that the time for submissions would not be too lengthy.
