Three members of the Commission of Inquiry (COI) are now back in the BVI and more members of the COI team are “expected to join the Commissioner later this month”.
The Commissioner, Sir Gary Hickinbottom, returned last Thursday, April 1, with COI Secretary Steven Chandler and senior solicitor to the Inquiry, Andrew King.
They will be in quarantine for 14 days as they continue with the information gathering and production-of-documents stage of the COI.
“The Commissioner is currently considering holding some initial hearings in the BVI in late April and early May. The Commissioner will publish rules to regulate the conduct and management of the COI’s hearings later this week,” Chandler said in a statement on the COI’s website on Tuesday.
Chandler renewed the COI’s open invitation to anyone who believes they have information that may assist the Inquiry to immediately submit it through the inquiry’s secure website.
In addition to the website, persons can contact the COI through its secure email address (firstname.lastname@example.org), OR its WhatsApp phone number — +44 (0)7832 111254 — for messages or audio/video calls.
