OUTGOING Assistant Commissioner of police Les Green, says despite claims by gay lobby group Jamaica Forum for Lesbians All Sexuals and Gays, (JFLAG) that gays are being persecuted and subjected to mob beatings, Jamaicans are actually tolerant of gays.

In an exclusive exit interview with the Jamaica Observer Green said he had worked closely with JFLAG and found that most gays who were victims of murder were killed by other gays.

"There isn't that sort of backlash that some people say. I think we are much more tolerant. I think Jamaica is far more tolerant than the public hype," Green said.
