Prime Minister Holness Ready For Action!!


The Zones of Special Operations Bill, which was passed in the House of Representatives last month, is to be debated in the Senate on Friday before becoming law.

The legislation, if it becomes law, will give the prime minister power, in consultation with the National Security Council, to declare an area a zone of special operations to tackle increased volatility in a community. However, the zone can only be established after the police commissioner and the chief of defence staff make a request for such a declaration in writing to the prime minister.

More than 697 persons have been murdered across Jamaica up to June 24, up from 584 for the same period last year.
