APNU executive wants Linden Enquiry statements by victim’s legal representatives to be accepted
APNU Executive and Attorney-at-Law, Basil Williams, wants to know if the Commission of Inquiry will accept statements from the shooting victims’ legal representatives.
He said that there are provisions for those people to have legal representation.
The police were appealing to residents to come forward and give statements on the July 18th shooting deaths and the injuries to several others.
Williams believes that the reluctance is as a result of the police not providing the necessary protection to the eyewitnesses.
The Commission of Inquiry has hired two lawyers to assist persons with writing their statements.
The APNU objected to the appointment of those attorneys citing their connection to the chambers of the Attorney General, Anil Nandlall.
The APNU is still waiting for a response from the commission to those objections.
