HUMAN rights watchdog, Jamaicans for Justice (JFJ), yesterday appointed Kay Osborne as its new executive director.

Osborne, a former general manager of Television Jamaica, will take up her appointment today.

"Ms Osborne comes to the position with years of experience and knowledge in the field of communications and management and a dedication to the work for human rights," a JFJ release said yesterday.

Osborne, the rights group said, was selected from local and regional applications who were shortlisted by a firm which provided human resource consultancy support and two rounds of interviews.

"JFJ was heartened by the interest expressed in the position and the strength of the shortlisted candidates. In the coming month, we look forward to the opportunities our annual general meeting and our annual board retreat will provide for our new executive director to begin her work with the organisation, as we continue to work for the protection of human rights in Jamaica," the release said.
