CHAIRMAN of the Dudus/Manatt commission of enquiry, Emil George, has ordered an investigation to discover the motive behind a visit by police to the office of Solicitor General Douglas Leys' yesterday.

Members of the Jamaica Constabulary Force's (JCF) Cyber Crimes Unit reportedly went to Leys' office and with the intention of perusing files on his computer.

The probe was ordered after a complaint was lodged by Ley's attorney, Orville Smith this morning.

Last night the police offered apologies to Leys and his staff for any inconvenience occasioned by their visit.


Police Commissioner Owen Ellington, has since instructed all cops assigned to the Jamaica Conference Centre where the enquiry is taking place to take instructions from anyone participating in the proceedings excepting for the commissioners overseeing the enquiry.
