Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley will lay the Firearm User’s Licence (FUL) Audit Report in the Parliament in due course.
Attorney General Reginald Armour confirmed this at a media conference on Wednesday as he called for balanced reporting on the matter.
Referencing a letter sent on Tuesday to lawyers for former police commissioner Gary Griffith, the Attorney General sought to set the record straight on what course of action was being taken with the audit report.
AG Armour made it clear that Government wants the audit report dealt with as quickly as possible, but indicated that consideration is being given to allow those who are affected by the report to submit comments and make representation.
He revealed that he’s recommended to Cabinet that an individual or body be appointed to review this.
Following this, a decision will be taken on the next step for the report, including the timing for it being laid in the Parliament.
“The audit report or any summary will not be laid in a manner as to prejudice its value as an investigative audit,” AG Armour said.
The AG said there were no additional details he could offer as he had to ensure that due process is concluded before commenting on any of the contents of the report.
