PNCR sets up legal team to watch over Rodney probe

The People’s National Congress Reform yesterday said it has established a legal team to oversee the Party’s interest during the Commission of Inquiry into the death of Dr. Walter Rodney which is to begin sitting today.

A release from the PNCR said that the team is headed by Party Chairman and Attorney at Law, Basil Williams, MP, and includes Attorney at Law, Joseph Harmon, MP and James Bond, MP.

The Party’s Central Executive Committee has made a decision that the Party will not cooperate with the COI due to Terms of Reference number four and the appointment of Seenath Jairam, SC to the Commission.

That part of the Terms of Reference has to do with investigating the actions and activities of the state and whether it carried out actions against the political opposition for the period January 1, 1978 to December 31, 1980 when it was in government.

The PNCR objected to Jairam on the grounds that he appeared for the government in the budget cuts case.
