Justice Minister Delroy Chuck has said compensation and an apology could be coming soon for residents of West Kingston, who suffered damage to their properties during the 2010 operation in Tivoli Gardens.
 
He said the completed West Kingston Compensation Committee report will be tabled in Parliament early next month.
 
Recommendations have been made by the Committee for various amounts to be paid out to the affected residents.
 
Mr. Chuck did not say how much the government will have to fork out to the residents.
 
He said more than 1000 claims for compensation were reviewed by the Committee.
 
"They had to put in a proper matrix for those who got compensations immediately after the event and those who, a lot of them were denied, because you might have two or three persons from the same family applying and the committee was able to discern that," he highlighted.
 
Mr. Chuck added that almost 400 claims were rejected because they were submitted after the extended deadline.
