general was later subsumed into the
interpreter commission under the
Integrity Commission at 2017 that
statute which took effect on February 22

post of director of corruption
prosecutions but mr. Harrison was never
appointed to the position instead he was
asked to act in the role on an interim
basis earlier this year the public
became aware of strong differences of
opinion between mr. Harrison and the
commissioners of the Integrity
Commission following a report by mr.
Harrison as former contractor general
about the government sale of the rooms
on the beach property in notorious his
report stated that the Urban Development
Corporation was not able to negotiate
freely and from a position of strength
in the sale of rooms on the beach
to porter Caribe properties limited
because of the alleged meddling of
government minister there involves and
others that claim was strongly contested
by mr. Vaz
the controversy depend when
commissioners of the integrity
commissioner raised doubts about the
credibility of the report in a statement
issued on April 30 in June mr. Harrison
said Jamaica’s anti-corruption
strategies are ineffective adding that
the country runs a risk of suffering
reputational damage unless decisive

and corruption forum in New Kingston Oh
Shane masters TVJ news a call from the
Consumer Affairs Commission for parents
and guardians to be vigilant in their
back to school shopping the director of
communications was speaking on TV Jai’s
smile Jamaica program this week TV days
Angela Lee has the report look out for
counterfeit goods that’s the call from
the Consumer Affairs Commission as the
back-to-school shopping period
intensifies director of communications
at the CAC Latoya Halstead says reports
of fake school bags and shoes have
increased in this period after the rush
where everybody generally trying to do
last-minute shopping what generally
happens we see a 5 to 10 percent
increase in the number of complaints
miss house they’d made a plea to those
who purchase goods without getting a
receipt while encouraging parents to buy
brands they are familiar with and I’m
gonna ask beg lead the consumers ensure
that you get a receipt when you purchase
the items because at the end of the day
it comes down to three hours you either
repair it replace it or you get a
redress as for textbooks miss house that
said parents should look out for books
which have been defaced in terms of
books persons would have written their
names in the books and they would have
wrapped the books and when you take that
back to the store the bookstore cannot
sell it to somebody else
because somebody else’s name is
in it okay so what we call Shan parents
is that when you purchase books do not
write the names do not wrap the books
until you have confirmed with a teacher
this is what we will be using and you
