Golding also revealed that in 2007 when he heard that thugs were hiding in Tivoli Gardens he sent an emissary to Coke telling him there could be bloodshed if criminals were allowed to stay.
He said Coke assured him there were no criminals hiding in Tivoli.
Golding also said it was difficult to assess the incursion and whether unnecessary force was used.
But he said it is evident to me that some of those persons that were killed were not themselves gunmen and were not confronting the security forces.
Meanwhile, Golding said he’s surprised that the public defender, Earl Witter has not yet submitted his report on the incursion to parliament.
Golding resigned as prime minister in October last year.
