Jamaica house a short while ago he said the incident may have been an escalation
of an ongoing feud in another community he suggested that the criminals may have
been targeting relatives of a member of a rival gang very close to home that
they were family members of a member of parliament or the old involved they the
best information have this is emerging from earlier gang activity which actor
is it in the cafeteria it is a kind of activity that the police
finally the current stage of police is almost impossible to prevent some of
these activities on to other news now may of Montego Bay Houma Davis is this
afternoon expressing concern about the recent fire at the old fort market in
San James it comes weeks after fire gutted a section of the map and market
in Clarendon leaving over 200 vendors hopeless it’s still unclear what caused
the fire at the old fort market which destroyed four shops but mayor Davis
says these fires are a cause for worry and then any unfortunate accidents
whether by fire otherwise is something which is quite regretable but I don’t
know the reason for these periodical fires and this is why an investigation
is very important mr. Davis says his team from the
Municipal Corporation is conducting that investigation after which they will
provide the requisite help we haven’t gotten the official report from the fire
department as yet but currently we are doing an estimate cost to replace those
four shops so as soon as that is done it will be taken to the appropriate meeting
for the appropriate action to be taken two of those shops rebuilt parties can
now be held longer than usual because of changes to the noise abatement act
Parliament passed the changes to the law last night to a low parties to go on for
longer during the festive season events are being allowed to go on to talk
o’clock in the morning on weekdays and a four o’clock on weekends parties are
usually only allowed to go until midnight on weekdays and at or o’clock
on the weekend it will remain in place until January 31 the National Security
Minister dr. Horace Chan says the bill is in response to calls from
stakeholders so the call from the entity and industrial
the practitioners community associates and residents for there to be a review
of the amendment at the current Nazarbayev act caused a call from the
police force who find themselves being pressured to give extensions beyond the
law and the current atmosphere we have insisted that the police abide by the
law and therefore they would have had the clappers to give extension to any
individual seeking to have any entertainment activities in all the
period the ability of amis are ensuring that over the period of the festive
season public all the laws and regulations can be strictly carried out
notwithstanding the extension we appreciate what the this provision seek
to attain and we fully support that these changes so without further ado mr.

  34. They need to ban all party on the outside, ban all violent music on the air way and forego all those bloody money, these are the things that's is corrupting the mind of our youth's and teaching them to act like devil's. Not only should we create opportunities in the inner city, but we should take away anything that add fluid to the fire.

  35. you guys take people of Jamaica for a fool we are not no fool we want our freedom

  36. When it will end? Law abiding citizens have to be living in fear because of these criminals, it seems as if they have all the rights to kill, Zoso isn't working only making it worst. We need the government to change the law regarding illegal firearms, no bail and if found guilty 50 to 70 years imprisonment. It's so hard for law abiding citizens get a legal firearm, but it's easy to gain access to an illegal gun.
