[www.inewsguyana.com] – The Walter Rodney Commission of Inquiry (COI) has disclosed that several notable personalities have confirmed their willingness to assist the commission to the best of their ability.
According to Glenn Hanoman, one of the lawyers attached to the COI, such persons have signaled their intention to give oral evidence and have submitted detailed statements in various forms of their proposed evidence.
Hanoman indicated that Dr. Rupert Roopnarine, Eusi Kwayana, Karen DeSouza, Andayie, Fr. Malcolm Rodrigues, Lincoln Lewis, Nigel Westmaas, and Donald Rodney, Edward Rodney, Hubert Rodney are among those persons.
They are expected to testify either next week or during the next session commencing at the end of May.
These disclosures, Hanoman stated, come on the heels of much speculation that members of the Working People’s Alliance (WPA) and other important witnesses were reluctant to participate in the COI.
Public Hearings commence on Monday, April 28, at 9.00hrs at Supreme Court Library Building, Avenue of the Republic and Charlotte Street, Georgetown, and will continue on April 29 and 30, and on May 2. The proceedings will be streamed live onncnguyana.com. (GINA)
