KINGSTON, Jamaica - Information Minister Sandrea Falconer today shied away from questions relating to the possible revocation of the United States visa of Police Commissioner Owen Ellington.

Falconer, who was fielding questions from the media at the Post Cabinet press briefing at Jamaica House today, said the matter was a personal one and would have to be answered by Ellington himself or his legal team.

“It was not discussed in Cabinet,” Falconer said.

Ellington announced that he was stepping down form the post of top cop earlier this week giving as his main reason that he did not want to interfere with the upcoming Commission of Inquiry into the security forces operations in Tivoli Gardens in 2010.
