TIVOLI ENQUIRY: Tears flow as witness recounts sons' deathsTuesday, September 22, 2015
KINGSTON, Jamaica – The Tivoli Enquiry had to break for 15 minutes after a witness broke down in tears while speaking about her two sons who were killed in the May 2010 operation to apprehend then don Christopher 'Dudus' Coke.
The witness, Marjorie Williams, said her two sons were taken from her house with her brother, but could not continue as she complained about feeling pain.
"Mi belly hurting me," Williams said in tears.
She was then given time to compose herself.
Williams, a housewife, who was living at an address on DC Avenue in Tivoli Gardens, said that a soldier came to her house on May 25 and ordered her two sons and brother outside. The witness said one of her sons was 20 years old and the other was 17 and a student at Denham Town High School.
She said they were taken to a nearby house and made to lie down in a garden.
Williams also recounted that before the soldier visited her house that morning, both her sons were nervous and one even told her that he felt like he was going to die.
Williams' tears were seemingly contagious because an attorney also started crying during the testimony.
