TVJ Midday News: INDECOM Challenge Court of Appeal Ruling at Privy Council – February 4 2020

good afternoon I am Andrea Chism with
the midday news a special welcome if you are watching on one spot the
Privy Council is now hearing the appeal brought by in the come against the
Police Federation challenging the ruling of the Court of Appeal that it has no
jurisdiction to arrest and prosecute members of the Jamaica Constabulary
force the hearing started yesterday and will end tomorrow in March 2018 the
Court of Appeal ruled that in the comes powers are limited to investigations
three other associations representing members of the jcf are also respondents
in the matter the Privy Council will also decide whether any limitations or
restrictions arise in respect of a prosecution by Indicom or its initiation
the court will also decide whether a claim of uncertainty about the
lawfulness of a request made by an Indicom investigator can amount to a
lawful justification for failure to comply with that request further they
will seek to get answers on whether a claim by a police officer that he or she
is following the instruction of a superior officer
can amount to a lawful justification for failure to comply with a request made by
an indica investigator justice minister Delroy chuck said he believes the Privy
Council is likely to agree with the Court of Appeals ruling health
authorities in China’s Hubei Province yesterday reported 64 deaths from the
coronavirus the death tone in China has now risen to 425 the authorities also
reported 2345 unicorn’ firmed patients in whom a Hong Kong Tunney today
reported its first death from the coronavirus the second fatality outside
mainland China meanwhile the whistleblower doctor who was silenced by
Chinese police when he flagged the corona virus outbreak early on is now
one of those infected we have details in this report in a matter of days
dr. Li wen Liang went from treating patients to becoming one the 34 year old
ophthalmologist diagnosed Saturday with the Wuhan coronavirus but if action had
been taken when he and others started sounding alarms the severity of the
outbreak might have been understood sooner struggling to communicate Lee
spoke with CNN briefly by phone you can hear the hospital machines pulsing in
the background it was back in late December when Lee first warned friends
on WeChat about a SARS like disease going around Lee sent a group message
saying that a test results from a patient quarantined at the hospital
where he worked showed a patient had a corona virus but hours after hitting
send wilhunt city health officials tracked me down questioning where he got
the information within days they closed the suspected source of the virus this
seafood market and they announced the outbreak but instead of being praised
Lee got a call from Wuhan City Police with Lee coughing too much and breathing
too poorly to speak by phone we asked Lee by text how did you feel
when this happened I felt a little afraid afraid I would be detained afraid
my family would worry Lee responded he agreed to sign this document admitting
to spreading rumors online and severely disrupting social order it reads we want
you to cooperate with the police and listen to our reminder and stop the
illegal act can you do that Lee answered yes I can in the weeks that followed the
100 miserable Health Commission maintained that there was no obvious
evidence for human to human transmission no infection of healthcare workers and
that the outbreak was in their words preventable and controllable and with
that the people of Wuhan continued about their normal lives then came a sudden
jump in infections China’s central government took over scrambling to
contain a spreading virus with a rising death toll chinese state media first
reported that Lee was one of several whistleblowers silenced by police calls
for Lee and the others to be vindicated through online China’s Supreme Court
even weighed in adding quote it might have been a fortunate thing if the
public had listened to this rumor at the time tourism minister
Edmund Bartlet continues to encourage employers in the hospitality industry to
participate in the tourism workers pension scheme at a press conference
today the tourism minister said registration will begin soon t BJ’s
Anthony log reports so I’m pleased to announce that the Gazette it did for the
start of the tourism workers pensions give me January 31st 20 tourism minister
Edie Bartlett at a press conference on Monday the announcement is expected to
set the stage for the Board of Trustees to conclude the arrangements with a fund
manager and the fund administrator we expect to have that done in very very
short order so that we can then proceed to have the Augmented partners getting
involved in registration the long-awaited tourism workers pension
scheme is designed to cover workers aged 18 to 59 whether permanent on contract
or self employed this includes hotel workers as well as persons employed in
related industries such as craft vendors tour operators redcap Porter’s contract
carriage operators and workers at attractions this pension scheme is going
to be the largest pension plan in the Caribbean at the moment we have
potential for about 350,000 members and that’s growing it’s growing because the
tourism industry is growing because the employment in the industry is growing
phenomenally it’s only yesterday only we can I have occasion to be reminded by
statistics that in the last four years we have increased by nearly 50 percent
but just how much will persons have to contribute well it’s a three percent
initially represent of whatever you get for the first three years and then five
percent after that but remember now that the 3 percent is much by 3 percent from
the employer and the 5 percent will be much
but if you are able to put more you can turn ship it up to 20% of your salary
over time analog TV news meanwhile mr. Bartlett
says thousands of jobs are coming for the Jamaican people looking in the
pipeline the next two months we’re going to be breaking ground for close to
12,000 rules the implications of which for job creation and for employment in
the broader scale is going to huge one of the projects that we break in goes on
the 28th of February is going to employ initially 10,000 people and there’s
another one that’s coming which is going to have pretty close to that and then
one which and Wednesday I will conclude this questions on which will bring
another some four or five thousand employ and it’s time for a break here on
the midday news but stay with us we have more stories right after these messages welcome back and we’re continuing the

Saint and Municipal Corporation as they say the entity has done nothing to fix
the situation the vendors in the st. Ann’s Bay market say there are several
issues which the Municipal Corporation has failed to address despite them ping

those persons died from their wounds don’t want a repeat of 2019 when we have
multiple and I’m saying again that you know we

give whatever support necessary to ensure that the residence of years and
by extension Clarendon is safe because what is not me know is reach alarming
proportion and we are now saying that we are afraid do in Anderson TV G news
there is a slim chance that the demolition of the apartment complex on
upper Montrose road in st. Andrew can be avoided despite an order by the Supreme
Court attorney at law Amy libels who filed a claim against the
developer said there was an opportunity for modifications to the complex instead
of demolition the issue was follows our ruling by the
Supreme the developer should demolish the
structure immediately because it breached the restrictive covenants
attached to the title these covenants stipulated the type of structures which
should be built in that neighborhood however the developer went ahead with
the construction and later applied the covenants to be changed the Supreme
Court did not find favor with this activity it then made an order for the
structures to be demolished so that they could conform with the covenants
according to mr. LIBOR based on the order some time was given for
recommendations to be made on how to carry out the demolition he explained
yesterday on radio Jamaica’s beyond the headlines there’s another date that is
set for the parties to put forth as it is to see the extent to which the
structure on the property can be modified to conform with existing
covenants so if it is that something is put before the court that reflects that
how the property can be modified to conform with the covenants then the
court will consider that in making any final determination on that aspect the
Child Protection and Family Services Agency is moving to provide more
resources to deal with the troubled children head of the agency Rosalee gage
gray says in the near future the agency will be building a therapeutic Center at
the max Miller Children’s Home this Center she notes is vital due to the
level of violence against children and this is will be a critical facility for
us and for the children of Jamaica where we can do the therapeutic intervention
which is if we should see what’s our greatest need apart from the fire safety
it would be the therapy to care for children who have experienced severe
trauma mrs. gage gray was speaking recently either handing over of a fire
safety system at the Maxfield park children’s home approximately 30 homes
will be retrofitted with the safe equipment through a forty million dollar
initiative spearheaded by the Supreme Ventures Foundation and the Jamaica Fire
Brigade director of the Supreme Ventures Foundation Heather Golson highlighted
the reason for such a move it’s a strategic imperative for the foundation
and fire safety has been so topical over the last few years we’ve suffered loss
we have suffered destruction in the society and we’ve suffered so much
emotional upheaval that it was a absolute absolutely clear decision for
us grammy-winning reggae artist coffee was welcomed home by government
officials when she arrived at the Norman man the International Airport in
Kingston yesterday and during a courtesy call at Jamaica house prime minister
Andrew Holness and minister of entertainment Olivia Grange
congratulated the recording artist Poppy’s mother Joanne Williams was also
in attendance coffee later expressed her gratitude to the prime minister and for
winning the award she is proud that she could represent the country me winning
this Grammy definitely represents hope for the future it shows that many great
things are possible as I’ve been saying and it opens new doors not only
established artists before us who not even discovered him talent yet so to
speak so I mean it’s it’s a huge it’s a huge milestone for us and the country
minister Olivia Grange described it as a blessing to be celebrating coffees

  6. Markets is a tourist,stop. Many people love to visit markets when travel.
    Markets can be plagues by viruses. This is what happened to China. The Markets in Montego is full of garbage taken over by homeless people. Or people selling clothing, while all the foods selliers sit outside in garage selling their food. plus market is rat infested.

  7. The government need CCTV monitoring to back up the Police force. Too much absent father's the mother's alone can't do it boys need good role models.

  8. We really need to start using our robust tourism industry to attract more local investment.

  9. All markets need to be modernized for better security, enhanced sanitation, and ample parking.

Where is the money Parish Council collected from the venders for rent ,come on this is Slackness, it don't look good on the  Agriculture sector of jamaica, when people like myself  in America see these in the news and all over like YouTube and Facebook etc.That is not a good  look on our market in a big Tourism area like St Ann Bay  .Mr McKenzie ,Mr Edward Seaga leave you to carry on his Legacy  and  his job ,let him proud in his Grave .Put some Pressure on the Parish Council of St Ann and let them do there job.
    By Gary Logan

  16. I love to hear about the job opportunities on the rise!!

  17. Police will be biased to arrest fellow members therefore INDECOM should be given the power to arrest any member of the J.C.F after the dpp have approved any matter brought forward. Jamaicans should look pass the 'pat on the shoulder ' and stand up for justice.

  18. When the police stopping people, and looking for a little ganja, it is a waste of time. The police must utilizing their time looking for guns,and dangerous objects which can killed people. More than wasting their time looking for ganja,that is not the real problem that is why they are there in the 1st place.
    There main purposes they are there, is to try to get rid of the gun men, rapists, robbers, burglaries, also those stealing people farming produced.
    Also those wanted men roaming the parish, and committed those heinous crimes, that is what they are there for. Stop concentrating on petty things like ganja,it is a money making for poor people in Jamaica. Poverty is what really leads to most crimes, until the government can really helped in some ways or the other.
    By implemented certain systems to help the poor people in Jamaica, if they cannot help to motivated, and creating ways to helped the poor. The crimes situation in Jamaica is going to get worse, plus the continuous devaluation of Jamaica dollar.That really helps to make matters worse, because they cannot afford to buy the basic necessities of life for their families.

  19. Any believe tht death toll is a IDIOT 🤔

  20. What this guy is saying is all nonsense, it is not the police job to be asking people how many children they have and. Where they are, their jobs is to maintained laws and order. It is the Mps obligation to provide social services throughout Jamaica for the poor people who voted for them, so why the police officers.
    Should took over the MPs position, and is not them the people votes for.
    With all those training centers over Jamaica and they closed down by the JLP party government, in the 1980s. So there is nowhere for the young people to go,and learned a skill. That what that guy should be trying to emphasizing on,by encouraging the government to restored back those training centers over Jamaica and they closed down in the 1980s. All the crash programs services throughout Jamaica useto helped the poor people in their communities, and the JLP party government shut it down. It useto brought in some incomes into the communities across Jamaica, and that useto cut down on poverty .So if the government is taking away all the benifits from the poor people in Jamaica, you are going to have internal inflation on the people. Which is going to caused high crimes rates, it does not matter if the government put all the security forces on the streets. It is not going to preventing the people them from committed crimes, so all who trying their fancy talking. It is not going to work, because a hungry,and angry people in general. You must haveto be going to deal with high crimes rates, what is the government is planning for the poor people in Jamaica. More than talking bullshit about, and making all these promises and no action at all. It is full time for action too much talking over the years, and nothing is been done about it.
    The people is very much tired of all these waiting over the years, and nothing is been done about it.

  21. What a change in Jamaica I remember the days when I would travel from Trelawny to Haley market,, where I would sell yams on Friday so on Friday night I would walk to Water lanes on I would stop in bar and I would punch music from the duke box, that time jimmy as just done that song (girl you promise me love and devotion) and around 11pm I would walk back alone to Haley market and no one would trouble you, I just wish these young people could experience some of those lovely days when we was loving people to each other .

  22. big up koffeeeeeee

  23. Help our farmers please

  24. Mr Barlett was the pension scheme one of your initative?

  25. It is either that the Minister of national security and Andrew Holness is blind or simply retarded. What does setting up a road block at the crime scene is going to produce. If I am a criminal, why would I drive down a road that have a road block. Go back to the old tactic…..The Adam's way……Oh, yuh nuh like fi hear dat. Well, it is the only thing that will work. Run een pahn di man dem ina before day. Shut down an area and search it house to house, mango tree to mango tree, pit toilet to pit toilet. That is the only way you are going to ease this crime problem. Then spend some money on educating people……mandatorily……yes , mandatorily. Give youths incentives to go to school. Give employers incentives to hire them, and pay people to install proper electronic systems in and around their business. Start training police like police……the mental, educational, economic, and informational training of police is pathetic. A lot of police don't even think that they are police. Their mentality portray them as a criminal with a badge, so, they act like it and it works. Sooner or later they are a full fledged criminal.

  26. I do not believe in nothing that Jamaica's government says or does. A bunch of LIARS.

  27. That’s stupidity indiCOM can only investigate And not charge a officer with a crime 🤦🏾‍♂️
