manner he says a consensus must be reached so that while persons are
enjoying themselves they cause little or no disturbance to others the Prime
Minister says his call two years ago for the establishment of special
entertainment zones to be set up was to achieve just that five o’clock by the
way five then four years persons in the entertainment industry have been calling
for a review of the 2:00 a.m. cutoff time for certain entertainment events to
be changed entertainers have been lobbying the government saying the 2:00
a.m. cutoff time is only killing the industry players in the local medical
ganja industry are unlikely to face competition from Carreras anytime soon
after the group revealed it is not interested at this time Carreras main
business is tobacco cigarettes however questions have been asked about
whether the group could look to medical ganja to diversify its offerings and
increase its profits medical ganja is one of the fastest growing sectors
globally chief executive officer of Carreras Marcus Steele addressed the
matter at the group’s annual general meeting last week we have no intention
now or on the horizon to do so because I think we do have so much more to do on
the cigarette business which is what we are doing in terms of the brands and
ensuring that we’re at the right route to market model so that is the reason
why I was able to categorically say no we are not
into that business because I don’t believe that’s our business at the
moment many others a renewed appeal from cigarette retailers couriers for the
authorities to launch a counter-offensive against the illicit
cigarette tree CEO Marcus still explained that most of the cigarettes on
the local market got there illegally and it’s costing the company and the
government billions the illicit trade percentage went up significantly and the
government lost over 1.8 billion dollars it also impacted the company as well
because the legal market went down by over 22% 53% of the consumption of
cigarettes in Kingston Basin or internal study it’s not an official study or
internal study 53 percent which is over half of the consumption of cigarette in
Kingston is illegal and that is significant and that is something that
is a monster that we need to tame and we have to do together with the authorities tickets issued is set to exceed last
year’s figures nearly 500,000 tickets traffic ticket status were issued in
2018 Police Commissioner Major General Anthony Anderson gave an update this year we’re likely to exceed that
we’re way over 300,000 going to 400,000 already and each one of those tickets if
you just apply some imagination to it you know the amount of time it takes to
write up a ticket and they do it repeatedly and repeatedly the truth is
that we actually have people who have gotten over a thousand tickets and it’s
our job to do this it’s what the law says the Lord says we do this part of it
we seized over eight thousand vehicles last year for various offenses that are
seasonal and then we turn them over to the courts and that’s where it goes
there are renewed demands from residents of montpellier housing schemings and
thomas for a rotten utility pole to be fixed immediately the test Rafi waiting
to happen it’s hosing scheme are describing this
situation everyone Richard says this poor has been a hazard for years he says
he has been reporting the matter to the Jamaica public service company for five

complain oh yeah no you have no excuse our news team has been trying to get a
response from the utility company but so far that has been unsuccessful we go on

times then it became three times and each time they’re like oh we’re so sorry

About the author


  1. This is what the government needs to focus on reducing the crime in jamaica and stop fighting getto youths that are out making a honest living ( like shutting down events .. Etc)

  2. Were you guys using a trainee in the control room? This is one of the lowest quality news productions I have seen from you guys!

  3. Absolutely Sir they JPS just do not care. I am very pleased that I do not used them anymore for my electricity. A very none caring company. They have no competitor that is the reason why they behave in that manner.

  4. I swear to God. Use to see this in the movies. Now in real life. By the way a lot of things shown 15 years ago to now in a movie is happening in real life

  5. 1983 gunmen attempted to rob an American Jewelry store off Constant Spring Rd,the robbery was foiled by the police and the gunmen took hostages including a 13 yrs old school girl from Merl grove high school,the police opened fire on the gunmen and hostages which resulted in the death of the student. Jamaica has definitely come along way from those barbaric days.

  6. I support the RG 💯! They need their $$! Dem av bills and responsibilities like everyone else! Big F-ry the JFF a gwaan wid. Pay di girlz dem man!

  7. If the government doesn't create jobs for the people of the country it not going to get better,Chinese supermarket work and cheap Mexico work can't help, we need to build our country cause we have the people that have big brains and can use it but the government doesn't want the people ideas PNP and JLP doesn't make one

  8. What happened to cameras on the gas station…the establishments to put cameras on there premises..boy they dont hear .glad no life dont lost inthe two incidents.shalom

  9. What kind of banduluu news reporting is this? That static in the audio is irritating and definitely unprofessional. TVJ? Do you have any pride in your work?? You guys need to get yourselves together.

  10. Brother did you say disastrous* or disastarous*

    Is Marigold Harding newly appointed or reappointed? Which is it?

    The quality of news nowadays. Herman Green you are an embarrassment.

  11. Because the gun men are. Cowards. In America it's different. People are crazy in America. They would have shoot one of the hostage throw out to show how serious they are

  12. Not supporting robbery or murder. My point is, to how Jamaica is backwards, it takes special team and soldiers to handle these things. In America, police alone deal with it.

  13. The police force in Jamaica is weird. They only have strength for week cowardly criminals. They don't use their head, they quick to use their finger. And politicians run the security force. Madness.

  14. these police need to wear body camera when they issue traffic ticket video them so when they dont pay put there picture in mideo so people can see them

  15. Police only know how to run down taxie, harass the market people Dem, argue like women, Tek people man and woman, because when man and woman have things, domestic abuse, violence, fight, scratch, box etc, them not just arrest the man, but Tek the man woman. Sexual favors. Police drink drunk on job, have big Bill at the bars to pay. Some of them, their uniform ugly, wash out.

  16. What sick my stomach with the police force in Jamaica is. They carry allot of feelings for people when doing them Job. Just because the market woman trace off the police man, him get mad and turn over her stall. Them don't act professional, so that people can respect them. And allot of the especially the young police officers, them Tek up Gaza Pon Dem head, pop corn, alkaline etc

  17. Police a wear tight pants, tight shirt on the Job, in scamming, mix with the criminals Dem. Everybody want to be rich. Can't satisfy with the pay check

  18. One time, when driving in a police car, is news am hearing on the radio, or rarely a reggae. But mostly the service radio. Now. Mi seh, a Kartel, alkaline, Movado etc.

  19. I have a message for the minister of security. Jamaica is in peril. The greatest threat today is the especially the police force. Some place, things, and situation I see police in and involve. Its a disgrace. I use to have respect for the police force. Now, I am afraid of them. Use to feel safe going to the station and make reports. Now, unfortunately, everybody knows what's in the books. Information not confidential again, and them use you, expose u, and leave u in u own mek the dogs Dem bite u up.

  20. The nation is under distress. For humans or no more acting humans. And so the pressure apply, so there are person who give up job, etc and transform into monsters

  21. So many police leaving the force. Gone to America, etc. Everyone want better. Those who cannot go, find means and ways to get rich

  22. Parliament house is, I won't even say. The message you people sending out to the nation is? Fight, fight, fight, grab, grab, shoot, shoot, kill, kill, bad mine, bad mine, etc. No morals. The poor church Dem get normalize. And it's a money making thing at church, also most church is like a theatre.

  23. Everybody gone astray. Turn back on God. Am so disappointed of the prime minister of Jamaica, because I don't see him doing what God would have a leader do. Madness

  24. For the PNP party. Madness. Money money it all about. Until I see a leader rise, and burn out injustice, stand for truth. Praise God. Lead the people as Moses. Patient, with love and compassion. Humble. Serious, etc. Then I say yes, revival and Reformation for Jamaica. But the dirty dancehall them love up. The dirty clubs, and the illegal guns them bringing in the country, also the good lands for farming gone to housing. Chaos

  25. May God help us all. For every country have been following Babylon.
    Am happy none got hurt by those robbers. Get rich quick is not the way. Either you die, loose your soul, or end up in prison

  26. Carreras strategy proves that they have no sense.
    Cigarette is the most vilified product in the modern world and proved cancer contraction because of its use will continue to destroy it's sales until zero .
    Surely now is the time to start to invest into research into the Marijuana field . What have they to lose ?

  27. The reggae Girls they work so pay the salary damn disgusting This is nothing new in Jamaica because I once worked for a security company in Jamaica and It was a nightmare to get our salary I support the Girls them

  28. Selling cancer sticks and acting like it’s food. I say no to the government allow them a license to make the product… give the small man a chance.

  29. Police ya'll need to start shooting those criminals, enough of the robberies and killings. You work hard and make a little house and buy a nice car, they want to come and collect everything including your life. Bullitt fi di ole criminal dem. Who nuh like weh mi seh, guh cook rice, one grain at a time.

  30. That's where need to have a state of emergency – KINGSTON/ST. ANDREWS!! Why should some parishes be singled out when crime is just as bad or even worse in Kingston/St. Andrews. But, that won't happen since it'll disrupt the life of too many influential people who the government don't want to go up against as the government won't win that battle!! As usual in Jamaica, the government has taken advantage of poor people!

  31. When since jamaica have swat team lol me sure me just see the police with the bar at the back an the Police if front him that was a stupid move he have the bar son he should be in front
