JP Embroiled in Corruption Investigation


Justice Minister, Delroy Chuck, says investigations are underway into a Justice of the Peace, JP, who’s allegedly being given directives by a gangster to notarize documents for criminals.

Minster Chuck made the revelation on Saturday while speaking at a Justice Ministry training session for JP’s at Sandals Montego Bay.

Minister Chuck says investigations reveal that the JP is allegedly engaged in other corrupt actions.

Mr. Chuck says despite training, many JPs are still engaging in bad practices. He pointed to the ongoing investigation involving a newly employed person at the Riu hotel in St. James, who’s accused of raping two female guests at gunpoint.

A St Catherine JP wrote a recommendation to RIU attesting to the accused’s character as a reliable and suitable person for the job. This, despite the Manchester Police saying he’s a person of interest in a number of rape cases in that parish. That JP is now under investigation.
