The family of the missing boaters says any independent inquiry of the police actions of the past seven days must be independent.
In a statement released in the past Monday (14 March) the Mullings and Brown families are calling for a judicial inquiry and not one carried out by a neighbouring police force.
They say this is the only way they can ensure an impartial outcome if a panel is picked from people with no ties to the Cayman government.
Gary Mullings, Edsell Haylock, Nicholas Watler and children Kanyi and Kamron brown have been missing for more than a week since setting off on a fishing trip.
The brother of Mr. Mullings said his family must be allowed to have their input in any examination of the facts.
“I hope to see that conducted independently of any resources that they, the government, would have ties too,” said Hyman Mullings.
“I and my family members, persons that are affected by this, would like to see this done, we need to have some sort of input in this. Because I don’t need to have any mishaps to take place where anyone has any hands to put in play of this, or anyone covering up anything, because this is very important.
“This will tell us, the family, if we have to get some sort of closure or something. This would help to tell us, or give us some form of idea of what really happened and I need for this to take place, independently as much as possibly.”
A review was recommended by Commissioner of Police David Baines, after the family of those missing criticised the response time of the RCIPS. No word say as to when that review will be carried out, or who will be on its panel.
