PNCR threatens to cut funding for Rodney COI

Screen Shot 2014-08-08 at 6.33.52 PMThe work of the Rodney Commission of Inquiry could have been over already if the commissioners were really interested in solving the 34 year old crime according to the People’s National Congress Reform.

Basil Williams- Lead Attorney representing the interest of the PNCR in the Commission of Inquiry said it continues to be of concern to the party that the commission is failing to bring forward core witnesses as he mentioned former Crime Chief Cecil ‘Skip’ Roberts and Rodney’s brother Donald.

Donald Rodney was the only witness to his brother’s death while Roberts was the Crime Chief investigating the circumstances which led to Rodney’s death.

Williams said the commission will reconvene in another two weeks and the commission has not yet indicated when Donald ROodney will be called to testify.

Since the commencement of the Commission of inquiry several persons including several members of the Working People’s Alliance took the stand testifying that it was their opinion that the state was responsible for Rodney’s death, without producing any evidence to substantiate their claims.
