Entornointeligente.com / RJR News / Prime Minister Andrew Holness has turned the spotlight on the Independent Commission of Investigations (INDECOM), suggesting that the entity needs to be more equitable in carrying out its operations. Mr. Holness asserted in the House of Representatives on Tuesday that Parliament “will have to take some decisions to ensure that that very important institution (INDECOM) operates with balance.” Opposition Leader Dr. Peter Phillips enchoed similar sentiments, urging INDECOM to show more respect to members of the Jamaica Constabulary Force during its investigations of police shootings. “If INDECOM has a problem with the members of the security forces, I don’t think they should disarm them in public in full view of the citizens. I think that unnecessarily demoralises the men and women who are urged to obey the law but who operate in what is a very dangerous situation on the street,” the Opposition Leader declared. He argued that it does no good for Jamaica’s crime fighting efforts if those who are tasked to serve and protect citizens are weakened in the face of their attackers.
