There are mixed reactions from residents of Tivoli Gardens and Denham Town in West Kingston to the findings and recommendations of the Commission of Enquiry into the deadly operation of the security forces in 2010.
Some residents, who’re dissatisfied, told our Nationwide News today, that they wanted to see a number of government, army and police officials charged for murder.
Marjorie Hinds says she’s still unable to use her right hand due to the injuries that she sustained from a mortar during the operation.
The widow with 2 children says she welcomes the recommendations for compensation and an apology.
But she says she’d be more satisfied if charges were recommended against those who spearheaded the operation.
Miss Hinds is supported by her neighbor who only identified himself as Mr. Biggs.
Another resident who says her house was damaged wants those who spearheaded the operation and have not retired from either the JDF or JCF to be fired immediately.
Our news center also caught up with Adina Darby.
Darby testified at the Enquiry that she was shot in the back while trying to save her wounded 20-year-old son by pushing him on a handcart to the Kingston Public Hospital.
And other residents who spoke with our Nationwide News say they’re satisfied with the findings and recommendations of the report.
A resident who didn’t want to give his name says he’s happy that the Commissioners recommended that residents should be compensated.
AND, a woman who identifies herself as Elizabeth Taylor says she too welcomes the findings of the report.
