Ewart Brown, the former premier, is among witnesses scheduled to appear later this month before the ongoing Commission of Inquiry.

According to the commission’s webpage, the group is still working on its list of potential witnesses for the week starting November 28.

Dr Brown, whose appearance at its last hearing was adjourned after an application by counsel, is scheduled to appear on November 30, while Joyce Hayward, the former Accountant General, is also expected.

In addition, witnesses who addressed the commission in September may be recalled. Thus far, no witnesses have refused to appear.

The Commission of Inquiry is continuing to take submissions, but would like to have them by November 18 — with the online statement adding that some have been impossible to follow up on because they were sent in anonymously.

The group remains committed to finishing its work by the end of the calendar year.

Meanwhile, all transcripts of its public hearings are available on its site, www.inquirybermuda.com.
