effectiveness of states of public
emergency even with a marginal increase
in murders officials give an update at a
press conference yesterday and we have
more in this report prior to prior to a
state of emergency or the use of state
emergency we were at sixteen hundred and
thirty five murders for the year last
year we got a 22% reduction with the use
of state of emergency but other measures
on December 18 the Supreme Court will
hear arguments relating to criminal
charges against the former education
minister and president of the cabin
maritime university CMU hew aldman the
attorney representing well-read and
professor fritz Pinnock confirmed the
information with our new center the
application for leave afford judicial
review was made in the Supreme Court
last month shortly after the men were
charged mr. Reed and pinnock are
challenging the decision by the
financial investigations division to lay
charges against them they contend that
the entity is an investigative body and
does not have the legal authority to
bring charges on October 9 mr. Reed his
wife Sharon and daughter Cheryl
professor Fritz panic as well as
counselor for the brownstone division
Kim Brown Lawrence were charged
following a corruption probe at the CMU
and education ministry the five who are
out on bail are scheduled to return to
court on January 23 the high profile
fraud case involving the Manchester
municipal
corporation resumed this morning at the
pooris courthouse retired mayor of
Mandeville Brenda Ramsey and her former
deputy counselor Ervin facie we’ll take
the witness stand in the multi-million
dollar saga mayor of Mandeville Donovan
Mitchell says the matter is too
important to files pertaining to that
particular matter was destroyed or
damaged in the fire and so I think the
matter will be continued because I know
during the last circuit matter the
matter was being aired in 13 poorest so
totally the fears based on what I’ve
been informed that those matters are
those files would have been still in
good custody as for other cases such as
bail hearings mr. mitchell says those in
lockup will have to wait
my major concern though is that really
of the litigants because you know if the
courts offices are closed no and there
are matters that may have been going to
the parish duties for billed for matters
for bill those persons will not have to
spend a longer time in the lockups
so we’re hoping that as soon as possible
and we’re gonna be returning to an
earlier story we told you that the
security forces are again defending the
effectiveness of states of public
emergency across Jamaica even with a
marginal increase in murders let’s hear
the details in this report and we’re
still having some technical difficulties
with that we’ll try to get it to you by
the end of the newscast
moving on to human trafficking are there
enough measures in place to prevent
human trafficking in Jamaica that’s a
question this afternoon as the number of
cases continue to increase tbj Springs
more picks up that story and we’ll be
hearing from Prince a little moment a
little while longer from now but for now
we’re going to be taking a break and
return to those and other stories here
on the midday news
welcome back and we’re continuing the
news
are there enough measures in place to
prevent human trafficking in Jamaica
that’s a question this afternoon as the
number of cases continued to increase
and now we’ll hear from TV J Springs
more a nine billion dollar illegal trade
but where Jamaica stands in that is
still unknown but while human
trafficking is growing on a worldwide
scale
Jamaica’s governor-general Sir Patrick
Allen is calling for more to be done to
decrease the number of cases island-wide
speaking at a trafficking-in-persons
symposium in st. James recently he
pointed out that to date over 80 persons
have been rescued by the national task
force against trafficking in persons Sir
Patrick highlighted the need for serious
efforts to tackle human trafficking as
it can be detrimental to the country’s
economic growth this on the background
of a report tabled last July by the
National Rapporteur on trafficking in
persons
Diane Gordon Harrison that 138 page
report is an eye-opening document which
highlights the enormity of the situation
that faces us in Jamaica he says despite
the laws which have been instituted
since 2007 greater work is needed
according to the global slavery index
Jamaica is ranked 117 out of 167
countries and has a tier 2 rating so
therefore we are of the understanding
that human trafficking is prevalent it
is the third largest criminal activity
in the world and it is a nine billion
dollar industry the International Labour
Organization ILO estimates that
traffickers exploit 77 percent of all
victims in the countries they reside the
United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime
report in 2008 pointed out that while
transnational trafficking networks are
still prevalent and must be responded to
through international cooperation
national justice measures strategies and
priorities should acknowledge the
increasing the national nature of the
trafficking problem even countries that
are signatories to the Universal
Declaration of Human Rights such
countries have no difficulty in
practicing human trafficking
unfortunately young people between the
ages of 18 and 35 are most vulnerable it
is estimated that twenty seven point
nine million adults and thirteen million
children right around the world are
victims of human trafficking and not
just for labor but also for organ
harvesting in the meantime Sir Patrick
is cautioning citizens to be vigilant in
the way they post on social media as
that is the main way of traffickers
gathering information on their prey
Prince more TVJ news a woman was

thirty five murders for the year last
year we got a twenty two percent
reduction with the use of state of
emergency for other measures general
Anderson noted that there was an overall
reduction of twenty two percent in
murders last year and significant
reductions in areas under a state of
emergency as our small figures in terms
of reductions in murders when comparing
what was happening since compared to
what was happening before it cannot be
there is no version of how you can twist
or turn those figures that suggests that
people’s lives are not being saved by it
will it save everybody’s life no it
won’t there are a number of things
we’ll have to take place to do that what
it does is largely remove the
opportunity to do it me of meep and
Winston mirage says since imposition of
these ESO in Condon there has been
significant reduction in the party’s
crime rate
we are also know looking at what happens

  1. The country is going to hell and the Police are not on the beat when on shift and they are seriously letting the public down.

  2. human trafficking will not stop in Jamaica as long as the government dont stop so much Mexican from coming in to Jamaica especially montego bay

  3. This is how u know laborite run dry off excuse and cons, SOE! Why can't you state in real numbers the amount of arrest made, from SOE, then break down what were these arrest for!! For e.g. last week/ month alone stop and frisk we discovered 10 guns and made arrest,15 arrest for rape, burglary 20 arrest, robbery 20 things like that…From look of the commissioner face u know that man has no idea what he is doing!!!

  4. So its not that they are innocent but they are the its was the wrong entity that charged them …..well if that is so the entity that charged would have known it couldn't and so the right one should step in and file charges …because if they are freed …because of this …it would raise a belief that it was deliberate

  5. listening to that man talk about the people swinging on the bridge he is a thief if it was made good he would not say shit like that god have mercy on jamaica 🇯🇲

  6. Jamaican must stop blame police and government for crime, blame our unintelligent self for using crime to solve every problem.

  7. SOE is absolutely worthless criminals do crime with police blockades right down the street. if it really made a difference they wouldn't have to be going public pleading their case and the difference is making.

  8. Jamaica and Crime!!!
    Solving crime in Jamaica is very simple, as we all know the root cause. Politicians and Gangsters are in the same bed!!! Is there once member of parliament in Jamaica that can say he has no connection to the DON in his constituency???
    Memba a vote win election!!! Affi talk to do don when election time and everything honest Jamaicans, kno how Ghetto Run!!
    Good way to start!! 1. MANDATORY SENTENCE OF 25 YEARS FOR ILLEGAL POSITION OF FIREARM.!!!
    2. RETURN TO CAPITAL PUNISHMENT FOR CHILDREN AND WOMEN KILLERS.!!!
    3. ONELAW, NOT 2 LAW FOR ALL JAMAICANS.
    4. THE GOVERNMENT MUST INVEST IN A NATIONWIDE PROGRAM THAT TEACH JAMAICANS HOW TO STAY AWAY FROM ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES.
    (GUNS, DRUGS, HUMAN TRAFFIC, BLATANT DISREGARD FOR THE CODE OF LAW AND ORDER.!!!)
    Crime makes you poor!!! That's a fact! 100 % All so call countries BIG COUNTRIES spend over 50% of their annual budget on defence or crime prevention!!! If crime reduce by 50% around the Caribbean and the world on a wider scale. What would happen to all the arms manufacturers????!!!!
    IMAGINE POLITICAL LEADERS AND GANSTERS GETTING ARRESTED AND CHARGED, PUT AWAY FOR GOOD, WHEN THEY COMMIT CRIMES.?
    THE OPPORTUNITY EXIST FOR THE JAMAICAN GOVERNMENT TO SET A STANDARD FOR THE PEOPLE OF JAMAICA TO SEE WHERE THEY'RE GOING.
    PEACE.

  9. U guys ear what tht guy said about those in lockup awaiting bail will have to wait…but the security minister stated tht ruel and his family shud of just been brought to station pay them money then go!! So wat happen to the inocents in jail or those who waiting on bail??…only for the rich this system wrk…..wake up Jamaican polititions are not for us

  10. THEY WANT TO SOLVE CRIME THEY CAN. THEY NEED INTERNAL INFORMANTS IN THE COMMUNITIES. ITS EAZY .CREAT DR CREAT SQUAD.INFORMANT UNKNOWN, CREAT DIFFRENT USERS NAMES ISSUE CARDS FOR PAYMENTS TO THESE INFORMANTS.

  11. CREAT A SMALL BODY OF AGENTS UNKNOWN TO THE GOVERNMENT ,TO GET INFORMATION, INTERNAL INFORMANTS,FOR INFORMATION.CREAT NEW NAMES FOR THE INFORMANTS, CHANGE INFORMANTS ACCORDINGLY.PAYMENTS MAID BY CARDS WITH NEW NAMES.

  12. These so call big politicians are a joke these guys should go back to practicing their doctorate and stay away from politics ,,let real tough guys fight crime ,these guys have soft hands ,them talk a big game with nothing to back shit up ,they have no clue what good intelligence are ,how to track or infiltrate gangs ,soe is the biggest failure I've seen ,gangs jst laugh at the whole thing .
