Jamaica's Prime Minister, Bruce Golding, has said it is absurd to expect a political party to divulge information on its internal dealings.
He was facing questions from PNP attorney K.D. Knight at the Manatt-Dudus commission of enquiry today, regarding the Jamaica Labour Party’s (JLP) hiring of the law firm Manatt, Phelps and Phillips.
Golding was being questioned about a press release issued by JLP chairman, Karl Samuda, following an investigation into the hiring of Manatt, Phelps and Phillips.
Knight questioned the prime minister as to why the press release left out certain key information, such as the fact that former junior minister in the ministry of foreign affairs, Dr. Ronald Robinson, met with representatives of Manatt on Golding’s instructions.
Golding, however, said the JLP was not obligated to provide all the information it had on the issue.
Knight also questioned why Golding had ordered Samuda to carry out an investigation into the issue, when the Prime Minister already had all the information and could have made a public statement on the matter.
