Member of Parliament for West Portland, Daryl Vaz is blasting Chairman of the West Kingston Commission of Enquiry, Sir David Simmons for the manner in which his name was introduced into the proceedings of the Enquiry Today.
Sir David Simmons read into evidence from a police diary, an unsubstantiated report that former tivoli strongman, Christopher “Dudus” Coke was at Vaz’s private residence during the May 2010 security operations.
Deputy Commissioner of Police Clifford Blake who was the witness being questioned indicated that he was not aware of the source of the information and that the police were unable to verify its truth.
Mr. Vaz says he finds the Commissioner’s action “thoughtless, insensitive, careless, reckless, and downright irresponsible.”
This afternoon, Mr. Vaz’s attorney, Peter Champagnie, raised the issue with the Commission Chairman in chambers.
Following Mr. Champagnie’s intervention, Sir David told the Enquiry that the allegation that Coke was present at Vaz’s house was investigated and not substantiated.
