Prime Minister Dr Ralph Gonsalves said on Tuesday, at a press briefing, that he was not going to release the names of the committee just yet.

He said that there are two persons whom he had approached to sit on the committee, who had requested that they be given some time to consider.

“And I am awaiting their responses, because this is a serious matter,” Gonsalves said.

At a press briefing last week, Gonsalves announced that he had asked lawyer Jomo Thomas to chair the reparations committee, a request to which Thomas had responded positively, the Prime Minister said.(DD)
