November 9, 2019

good afternoon I am Andrea Chism with
the midday news for this Friday November 8th a special welcome if you are
watching on one spot Mediacom the security forces are again defending the
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 yesterday afternoon shot while driving

distance to grey ground where she was assisted to hospital up to news time her

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

it does is largely remove the opportunity to do it me of meep and

    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!!!

    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

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

  • Reply Bob Newhart November 9, 2019 at 12:58 am

    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.
