Cameras barred from ‘Dudus’ enquiry
Monday, March 21, 2011
The woman is said to live in an area where her safety may be in jeopardy, and so Manatt/Dudus Commission of Enquiry chairman Emil George barred videotaping of the proceedings.
Only audio recording was allowed.
George also told reporters to tell editors to not prominently display the woman’s evidence.
In a private meeting, however, reporters told him that neither they nor he could dictate how stories were placed.
The chairman also wanted to take the reporters’ cellphones, but the journalists protested, saying the phones were part of their work tools.
The woman, who is also a worker with the Commission, was said to have sent an email outlining the extradition proceedings to Leys and Brady.
Lightbourne had said, before the email was brought into evidence, that she had not spoken Brady in relation to the extradition of Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke.
Lightbourne has since said that the email sent by the woman had to have been a forgery.
