The probe panel set-up to investigate the immediate past administration of Rivers State, Rotimi Amaechi has said it is not out to witch-hunt anyone.

Chairman of the committee, Justice George Omereji said this during his inaugural address to declare the sitting open.

Justice Omereji said the commission would give room for fair hearing to all parties, adding that all parties had the liberty to contract the services of any legal representative of their choice.

While highlighting the terms of reference of the committee, Justice Omereji said the Judicial Commission of enquiry would among other things, investigate the sale of the valued assets of Rivers State.

He said, “I must state here that the Commission is a fact finding body and not a court of Law. It is not on a witch hunting mission and its activities would be strictly based on the memoranda submitted by the parties.

“The Commission shall uphold the principle of fair hearing, give adequate and equal opportunities to all concerned persons to state their cases and tender relevant documents that shall assist the commission.”
