  3. Bunting says PNP vindicated by commission's reportRead the original story w/Photo

    Tuesday Jun 21 | The Gleaner

In his contribution to the Sectoral Debate in Gordon House yesterday, Bunting drew on excerpts from the findings of the commission as he slammed the actions of the then attorney general, Dorothy Lightbourne, who delayed signing the authority to proceed against Coke, for a period of nine months, saying it would be illegal to do so.
