The AFC is pushing for the commission of inquiry to be held in Linden

The opposition Parliamentary party, AFC, is disappointed that there is not yet a formal Terms of Reference for the Commission of Inquiry investigating the shooting death of the three Lindeners. There was an initial agreement among the parties that the Terms of Reference would have been ready by last Thursday.  Attorney Nigel Hughes, the new chairman of the AFC, is continuing to push for an international inquiry.

The police have said that they are investigating the bloody events of July 18. However, no interdictions or arrests have been made, and all of the officers remain in active duty.  Hughes said that while he is not surprised at the police action, he is disappointed.

The three Lindeners were killed on day one of a planned five-day protest against electricity tariff increases. The protests continue, three weeks later.
