Phillips reissues call for islandwide SOE

Opposition Leader Dr Peter Phillips said that there is need for an islandwide state of emergency (SOE) to effectively manage crime and COVID-19.

“The fact that crime is generally trending down globally is a good thing, but a long-term solution is still required,” Phillips told yesterday’s sitting of the Lower House.

He explained that the emergency regulations allow for the declaration of an SOE where there is the case of widespread pestilence and other national threats.

“The question is whether you bring the Disaster Risk Act under the SOE and make it islandwide. Failing that, you have an untidy situation in different parts of the country with different legislations in effect,” he posited.

Man charged after allegedly forcing family to watch rape

A Westmoreland man who allegedly raped a woman and forced her mother and sister to watch has been charged.

The police are reporting that 26-year-old Garreth James of Bluefields in the parish was arrested and charged on Monday with rape and grievous sexual assault.

This came two days after the incident.

The police report that the mother and her two daughters were at the Bluefields Beach Park on Saturday, April 18, when James reportedly held them up.

He allegedly forced one of the daughters to engage in sexual activities with him while the others watched.

Cabinet clear of COVID

All Cabinet members have been tested negative for the new coronavirus, Prime Minister Andrew Holness has said.

Holness provided the details at a virtual press conference held at Jamaica House on Monday.

“On Friday (April 17), you may have noticed that we did not have our usual press briefing. That is because we all got tested. All the Cabinet members got tested and a few of our permanent secretaries took advantage of that opportunity,” Holness said.

“We got back the results and all were negative.”
