PM Golding faces Manna enquiry again

No Comments

Prime Minister Bruce Golding is to face further cross examination by People's National Party attorney KD Knight when the Manatt-Dudus commission of enquiry resumes today.

The enquiry had taken a two-day break because Prime Minister Golding was not available on Monday and yesterday.

Golding, who will take the witness stand for the fifth time is expected to face more intense questioning from Knight.

So far, there have been occasional clashes between the two with the Prime Minister appealing to Commission Chairman Emil George for his intervention.

Golding had sanctioned the hiring of the US law firm Manatt, Phelps and Phillips to handle matters relating to the extradition request for west Kingston alleged drug lord Christopher 'Dudus' Coke.

The prime minister has maintained that Manatt, Phelps and Phillips was hired by the Jamaica Labour Party, but the law firm has insisted it was working on behave of the Jamaican Government.
