concerns are again being raised over the
use of SOS as a means of dealing with a
conscious crime problem the concern
follows numerous calls from various
sectors of the society for the Andrew
Holness led government to outline a
detailed crime plan for central
Manchester Member of Parliament and a
challenger for PNP president Peter
bunting the imposition of a state of
emergency is more a publicity stunt
speaking with reporters in st. James
last evening mr. bunting said he’s not
hopeful that there will be any great
results under this SOE the central
Manchester MP and former security
minister says the members of the force
are being used in intelligence so that
they can identify who the violence
producers are where the guns are and go
for them in a pincer like movement this
you know state of emergency approach has
been just used for largely for public
relations the the data says that it has
not been effective and we need something
more meaningful from the government to
respond to the crime situation meanwhile
the private sector organisation of
Jamaica PS oj is calling for the
authorities to provide details on the
decision-making process in the clearing
states of emergency PS oj president
hamid mitchell says the business
community supports their states of
emergency because crime and violence
have affected its members however he
believes there are other areas in need
of heightened security measures
additional activities being pursued
inclined and hotspots management
additional intelligence on surveillance
activities because we can just go on
putting band-aids on this part of the
cancer that Carlos you noticed so I I
support it but there must be more to
make us airport
are in need of essential upgrades that’s
according to Transport Minister Robert
Montague who says Jamaica’s facilities
or airport facilities lack keifa City
technology to compete on the global
stage he was speaking at the 45th
anniversary of the airport authority of
Jamaica we have more in this report both
phenom and Manny International and
sangster international airports have
been leased to investors within the last
20 years and moved the airport authority
of Jamaica saw as necessary in
developing and modernizing the
facilities however Transport Minister
Robert Montague believes that Jamaica
should be leading in innovation but
instead Island is lacking
mr. Montague argues that the lack of
urban planning creates major challenges
for the country’s infrastructure
he believes America must look at mass
transit and other key transportation
issues for the future for Transport
Minister says lawmakers inability to
plan especially in the transportation
sector please still citizens being
inconvenienced when improvements are
made to infrastructure
machine masters TVJ news the problematic
Sargassum seaweed is once again
impacting Jamaica’s beaches
however tourism minister Edmund Bartlet
is proposing that this year the issue
will be fixed he spoke on the matter
during a tour of tourist attractions in
Saint Mary on the weekend Sargassum it’s
a form of seaweed that almost yearly has
been a problem to beaches in the region
the weed washes in in droves covering
large areas of beach both land and water
it’s again seen as a threat to the
tourism sector as it has already been
seen on beaches in eastern Jamaica this
year we’re concerned because we see that
as a clear and present danger to tourism
especially the tourism we understand
that is driven by sand sea and so on
noting the importance of the beach
experience to the sector tourism
minister edmond Bartlett says it’s a
threat to the entire region in addition
to its unsightly nature and hindrance to
beach goers the seaweed also has a
distinctly pungent odor which adds to
visitors staying away last year the
National Environment and planning agency
never suggested collecting the seaweed
for use as fertilizer while there has
not been much detail on that suggestion
mr. Bartlett says more definitive action
is to be taken this year we have already
started to be proactive
we been talking with our partners nipper
and ourselves we’ve been talking with
some international bodies that are doing
studies as well so what is the
expectation from these discussions this
year mr. Bartlett says he expects an
outcome that will bring a solution to
the recurring issue once and for all
we think that the meeting of the minds
of all of these key and powerful
thinkers will help us to find a formula
that will do two things one will
identify and choke off the flow of
into our space and second to track it
and to be able to trap it and within our
waters and finally to be able to recover
from whatever follows that may come my
way of its own accretion on our beaches
we take a break here on the midday news
but stay with us more stories when we
welcome back continuing the news the
government is moving to boost the
capacity of the security forces to
monitor communication by criminals the
disclosure was made by national security
minister dr. Horace Chan at a news
conference yesterday where he outlined
legislative measures to be taken to
cauterize crime he noted that a review
of the anti-gun legislation is underway
but the government would not be relying
only on that law to suppress gang
activities anti-gang legislation will
have his final tour three panel sittings
to look at various amendments until we
get to those sitting in fact we’re
bringing to the host amendments to
intercept act to provide the security
forces with an effective means of using
modern technology to gather evidence in
dealing with the criminal enterprises
the gangs they are Don’s and bringing
together of guns in the country the
interception of communications at allows
the security forces to tap the
telephones of persons suspected or
accused of criminal involvement it
authorizes the interception of all
communications of a specific person
named in a warrant
and enables author authorised officers
to request technical information from
telecommunications service providers
under the Telecommunications Act
counselor for the Waterford Division in
st. Catherine Finley Douglas is
appealing to the National Works Agency
NWA to make adjustments to the newly
rehabilitated port Henderson Road in a
recent interview with TVJ news mr.
Douglas raised several concerns about
the median being created in the road he
claims the median is too low which
encourages motorists especially taxi
operators we were hoping that the median
in the center of the road would have
been much higher because as it is right
now vehicles are driving over the median
one – we’re seeing taxi men work going
towards knucklehead stopping in the
center of the road letting off people
who is just crossing and three the fact
that this road is somewhat like a new
highway if there should be an accident
there is no way that the accident will
be contained on the side that it
occurred the intersections are both nog
ahead and beside cannot remain as they
are otherwise what they’re only doing
with the road widening is to shift the
block from one end to the other and no
arrangement made at the intersection to
disperse the traffic wanted it’s built
up in fall in two lanes finally Douglas
also says the street lighting is
insufficient which he believes is a
recipe for disaster
I am concerned also about the lighting
when it was a normal two-way Road the
lighting would have been able to spread
across entire corridor know that it is a
dual carriageway the lighting is
insufficient the entire left side going
down towards beside will be in total
darkness but as it is no it’s an
ingredient for disaster and if we should
cry out our talk no it is the best time
to do so so that the National Works
Agency can make the necessary correction
– – to this corridor here no the Jamaica
urban transit company J UTC’s liquefied
natural gas LNG terminal in Port Merson
to be commissioned into service shortly
that’s the word from Minister of
Transport Robert Montague the Jo TC has
acquired five LNG buses and mr. Montague
says more will be purchased the Depot
will operate the buses as part of a
pilot LNG is being promoted as a much
cleaner fuel than diesel which offers
economic and environmental benefits
children who previously had to travel
from south central parishes of the
island to Kingston seeking medical
treatment for some air conditions will
no longer have to do so that’s because
the Mandeville regional hospital is now
equipped with a state-of-the-art
microscope which will significantly aid
in those procedures the microscope
valued at over 3.5 million dollars was
donated to the hospital by the
manchester wellness foundation
consultant in the ear nose and throat
ENT department of the Mandeville
Regional Hospital dr. Andrew Manning
says the use of the microscope will
change the quality of life for many
children in the region this microscope
is going to help a large number of
children within our region to have a
better life so currently we have to send
patients to basta Monti Children’s
Hospital for the universe the hospital
and a lot of the times they go to na
within this so this microscope will help
to change that dr. Manning noted that
the handing over of the equipment is
essential as a number of children across
the island are affected by glue air this
refers to a buildup of fluid behind the
eardrum he says this infection has a
serious debilitating effect on the
learning process kids with hearing
disabilities have a lesser chance of
learning what they need to learn in
primary school there were much lesser
chance of going on to high school a much
lesser chance of going to college which
means a much greater chance of ending up
in prison we going on to news in sports
Jamaica’s men’s and women’s rugby sevens

America’s north championship in the
Cayman Islands on Sunday the men’s team

  1. Remember he was in charge of minster of security and the crime he couldnt control it so he is all talk because he could not do better

  2. We need 20 more soe bunting when you was minster 1000 of people was still been kill that why I support the use car we just can't aforward so many new one

  3. Bunting should be the last person to criticize on anyone's crime fighting method, he threw his hands up and cried for his god to rescue him…. we all have the answers when we're on the other side. smhMontague highlighted some good points but what are we going to do to resolve it?…. talking is easy

  4. Peter did you have those strategies when you were the Minister of national security? Wasn't your solution divine intervention?

  5. Buy beach cleaners, give jobs to youths and supervisor and tractor drivers to clean up the beaches., Locals have to get jobs. There are many kind of beach cleaners on YouTube. Invest in beach care.

  6. This con artist
    He was security minister and he basically cried in public about the crime.
    Never felt so hopeless in my life

  7. Seems like Mr Bunting is a professional opposition minister. Can he tell us what was the benefit to Jamaica when he joined protestors marching downtown against crime?
    Can we guess? yes they were protesting against govt inability to curtail crime and as the minister in charge of crime, who was he protesting against?

  8. Peter bunting got robbed by theive and he was in charge of been the minister of national security shake my head boy

  9. Mr Montague what happen to the roads to st Thomas..the single road is a disaster although St Thomas have the most Aggregate….so stop coming down on the AIRPORT Authority..the travellers already over taxed with so many Agency claiming improvements and more…fees are collected…..try fixing St THOMAS Roads…

  10. Peter Bunting need to shut up.. when he.was minister of security
    .. he was not doing better.. it was the.same.. You alzo got rob when u were security minister. Did u do nothing u all PNP IS A BUNCH OF HYPROCRITES….

  11. Peter bunting should shut his chop because all he did was when he was a minister of National Security is cry at least somebody else is trying something else

  12. peter bunting the crime that Jamaica facing right now did not started yesterday, yesterday, it escalated out of hand under you PNP Government, you peter was there as security minister talking about divine intervention , you can fix the crime problem now so why you did not fix it then, you and you PNP crew or a set of hypocritical asshole , and cant even fix one shit you all major achievement is corruption

  13. True true true Jamaica airport's need to upgrade it's full time now Jamaica never been in the back before so why our airport's not upgrade

  14. Crime in Jamaica is the concern of every Jamaican including " former security minister Peter Bunting" .
    Peter Bunting as security minister recognised and understood crime "the MONSTER," he was dealing with. He was not "NAIVE" , so to EMPHASIZE the SERIOUSNESS of it ; he said JAMAICA NEEDED DIVINE INTERVENTION to HELP TACKLE IT. What was wrong with that?.Can't we as a nation rid ourselves of the JLP/ PNP SYNDROME ? Don't we over the years realise that everyone has a solution when someone else is wearing the shoes? Peter is no longer wearing that shoes he passed it over to this administration who thought they could do a better job. However, they are learning the hard way; how difficult crime solving in Jamaica is. Saying this to say that, we all NEED the killings and robbery to stop so at this point it is not about who said what in the past ; it is about what can be done NOW to curtail it.

  15. The JLP government is using tactic to try to impressed the people of Jamaica, by using the State of emergency indefinitely to control crimes. It looks like comrade Peter Bounting is reading my comment about what am saying, the PM Andrew Holness is just a big kid he does not know the intricacies about crime fighting and.
    He is surrounded by a group of novices who does not know the intricacies about fighting crimes, so they have no answers how to control the crimes situation in Jamaica. It is really sad to see how JLP party government ministers is just trying to displacing the people from their homes, and the opposition leader is not trying to counteract Andrew Holness. The present CP also the JDF chiefs of staff what the hell they knows about crime fighting, the JLP party government ministers is just trying to used the JDF. Which does not know nothing about crime fighting stragerdy, whenever times they are patrolling with the police officers.
    They only there to back up the police officers during patrolling on the streets, but they does not know the intricacies about how to detect crimes at all.
    Most people in Jamaica is very ignorant of the facts about the intricacies of crime fighting stragerdy, they thought using the JDF is the answer. If the government did have any form of sense at all, everytime that the PNP party government put a good squad of police officers together. As soon as the JLP party government ministers comes in power they dismantled it,because is not them who put it in placed.
    The greatest group of police they put together is Eradication during the 1970s, they need no JDF to go with them. There is nowhere in Jamaica that the eradication squad could not go,and as soon as the JLP party government came to power. They dismantled the squad, and brought in a squad they useto called acid,but it was none effective as eradication.
    The only thing that I know of a fact, that the JLP party government ministers is very much anti police from the time of Hugh Shearer. But you have some dieharted labourites police officers, although their own party is treating them like a piece of shithouse. I have a few good friends who are former police officers ,and some still serving , they still remains diehearted JLP supporters. With all the wrong doing that the JLP party government is doing to the poor people, also the entire police force. They are still supporting the JLP party government, I asked some of them why the JLP party government never considered one of you guys. To give the contract to help with the crimes situation in Jamaica, as a former member of the JCF with over 35years of services.
    More than giving the control of the JCF to someone from the JDF with no experience of the organization, and with less education. Because the government having no form of respect, or regards for the members of the JCF. So why some members of the JCF is still supporting the JLP party government ministers which does not have, no form of respect or regards for the members. I would like to know why those members is still voting for the JLP party government ministers, is those officers is taking cocaine or what. Or they are stupid or what, why are they still supporting the JLP party government ministers who is abusing them in all areas in life,those officers must be suffering from some form of mental health sicknesses.
    I would like to know what Bounting is trying to do about the unconstitutional laws that the JLP party government ministers is doing, what is his actions he will be taking. Just coming on social media and giving a fancy speech,and doing nothing to alleviate the problems. It does not makes any sense at all, I would like to see action from you Peter Bounting.The PNP party opposition is allowing the JLP party government ministers is just trying to manipulate the poor people, without trying to stop them by putting the matter in front of the court. Are they reading the news,or listening to it to see how the Democratic party in the United States. Whenever times that President Donald Trump is trying to put laws in placed illegally, the democrats putting the matter in front of the court barring him from carrying out his illegal actions. I would like to see the PNP party to be more active like the party I know before, more than just talking, talking like they does not know what to do. You cannot be too sympathizing with what the JLP party government ministers is just trying to displacing the people from their homes, there or going to have some people is going to criticizing the party. Because those people who are going to criticizing you, they are staunchly the JLP party diehearted supporters. It is the duty of the opposition party is to help protect the people of Jamaica constitution rights, and don't let the loggerheads government manipulating the poor people.

  16. What that dispelled former no good minister of national security is saying about face camera and boarding pass. He is just a big piece of shithouse, he should be in prison for fraudulent conversion activities of the money for the police new vehicles, which he also and other government ministers altering the deal.
    From new vehicles to used vehicles, and all now from such time none of those vehicles cannot turned over to police force almost 3years now. When you see someone like Montique a former minister of national security coming on social media talking bullshit, no one should be listening to a big fool like him. Who is carrying down the country, someone who cannot be trusted at all. Is one I can tell him,what he did to the Jamaican people taxpayers money, if he was living in the United States and did something like that. He would be in prison for fraudulent conversion activities, only in Jamaica certain things can happened. Where those politicians continues to defrauding taxpayers millions of dollars, and nothing is done about it. The government should be a shamed of themselves, that if everything they are leasing out,or selling out.
    That means the government is very much incompetence to run, or managed the businesses of the country. It is really sad that the government leasing out the two major airports to foreigners , so why that fool is complaining about cameras to take pictures for boarding pass.
    He should go hide his ugly self,he is too nough.What he is trying to do,is using this type of information to covering up his wrong doing.Nobody wants to hear nothing from him, because what he is saying is all nonsense at these pointing time. Because he has a very bad reputation already, so nothing he can say,or do can really compensated for it.

  17. I waa surprised that they didnt add a transit only lane for buses and taxis whike doung the mandela project…i believe our politicians need to go out into the world and learn more about the updated ways of efficient governance…..look at trinidad whi we compete against more than any other country in the world…they have had a dedicated transit road that brings peiple from the rural areas into port of spain for decades ……thats vision right there…and our politicians are still asleep at the wheel……i swear a thing as simple as people movement and in this day and age they havent seen that vision….very dissapointing espacially to a jamaican living out of jamaica and knowing what need to be done to make the country better

  18. So tell me something why mr bunting never do all that when he was in the position of security them full a shit

  19. Peter bunting is a crab who wants to be in charge,I wonder why he against the crime measures implemented, he might be one of the players who profit from high crime rates in the country

  20. Clean the beaches and sell the sea weeds I pay ten US dollars for a small amount to make my Irish moss

  21. Bunting himself is a criminal use Skeng don to Run JLP voters from Polling stations on election day in Central Manchester.

  22. Monteque Jamaica could have had all those nice things in other countries. Too much Criminals in high places. Do the addition of all the Money we have heard about that have been Robbed my Ministers. Plus the money we don't hear about.

  23. Sticky plaster on gaping wound is no use,SOE 90% of the Country,wishful thinking.Where's the real plan to reduce violent crime or are people at the top benefiting from violent crime.Starting from the top,sack certain curropt police man.

  24. Bunting need to shut up!! Does he think that Jamaican still have short memory!? Well some of the stupid making comments are!! At least this Government is trying!! Bunting and the PNP need to shut up because Bunting show his hands in the air in desperation and talk about divine intervention!!! Shut up Bunting!! Just shut up!!!

  25. Mr Bunting, you are running an election campaign what is your plan!? 😂 we don't want to here about the Government we already know that they are not doing anything 🤣

  26. Thats all them doing is slaving Jamaican people and taking the money out the country and not investing in the country back. and the government of Jamaica need to stop those kinds of thing and let foriegn who own companies in Jamaica need to invest back in Jamaica……

  27. How comes authorities do not know who are selling the guns so they can nip the gun trade in the bud?
    The US had a major gun bust in Florida in 2017 and all the the focus was on was who it was sent to. Anyone can screw up someone by sending gun to to that person. Focus was not on the purchaser in the US and nobody in the US will go to jail for breaking such law.

  28. Both parties are clueless as to how to fix what is a severe social crisis in Jamaica. They are busy trying to treat the symptom, crime.

  29. Peter Bunting should stand down with his criticism of the government. Peter is in political mode and dirty water is over his head as it relates to crime and security! Stand with and defend the government crime-fighting efforts for the good of the country!

  30. putting politics one side , mr . bunting is right , the state of emergency is now nothing but a state of joke . my friend got robbed at the stop light in inswood st. catherine , just a stone throw away from the JDFcheckpoint , the gunman then rode right past them on the stolen bike , with the gun in his waist , no attempt was made to stop him , as all the personel who were supposed to be on duty , were busy taking a brake under the tree , a lady was robbed on johns rd. within earshot reach of the checkpoint there . a car load of gunmen drove past the same checkpoint on johns rd . and shot and killed a man not far away from them , a couple was trailed by gunmen armed with m16s all the way from portmore and robbed in the dovecot area . the criminals drove past the checkpoint twice in one night . incidentaly , the robbery in inswood occured at 4pm in the evening . the gunman also passed the inswood checkpoint twice in one evening . to top it all the entrance and exit to the toll roads in and out of spanish town are without checkpoints since early last year , so all who want to transport anything illegal without the possibility of a search , just need to drive on the toll rd. in addition to all this , another of my friend have been traveling to and from montego bay past all the checkpoints since the last two weeks , he has a licensed gun , and he told me , he has never been stopped or searched . what a joke . kmt .

  31. I’m so happy, I never believe I will be this happy again in life. I was working as a air host (cabby crew) for 3 years but earlier this year, I lost my job because I was diagnosed of Hiv.
