PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad -- Kamla Persad-Bissessar, prime minister of Trinidad and Tobago, on Thursday received a copy of the report of the Commission of Enquiry appointed to investigate the circumstances surrounding the 1990 attempted coup in Trinidad.

The report was raised at Thursday’s meeting of the National Security Council (NSC). Persad-Bissessar told members of the Council that she would be laying the report at Friday’s sitting of the House of Representatives.

The prime minister also thanked Commission Chairman, Sir David Simmons, and the other members for the work they had put into the Enquiry, which resulted in the presentation of the report on Thursday. The other members of the Commission were Sir Richard Cheltenham, Dr Haffizool Ali, Eastlyn Mc Kenzie, and Diana Mahabir-Wyatt.

In 2011, Persad-Bissessar recommended to the president the appointment of a Commission of Enquiry to investigate the circumstances surrounding the 1990 attempted coup that resulted in the deaths of 24 persons and destruction of property worth millions of dollars.
