Lands Country Planning and the Environment Minister, Dr. Dennis Sandy, the Majority Leader and leader of Government Business Eddie Turay and the Parliamentary Oversight Committee Chairman for Lands and Country Planning Hon Dauda Dumbuya yesterday testified at the ongoing land enquiry.
Fifteen MPs from all sides of the House are investigating the allegations earlier made by the Lands Minister that Hon Eddie Turay and Dauda Dumbuya were allegedly involved in the sale of State lands.
The Parliamentary Select Committee Chairman, Hon Chief Dhaffie Benya declined to comment on what the three testified on or to explain how the enquiry is being carried.
Chief Benya told Awoko that at this stage he would not want to divulge the outcome of the proceedings as they have fifteen days mandate to complete their hearing and present their report.
He further said that they were examining the documents presented by the Lands Minister on June 9, 2009 and the enquiry is a closed door one that started last Tuesday and they are expected to present their report within fifteen working days after they would have examined, analyzed and evaluated documents presented.
