Kerr-Jarrett urges calm as INDECOM probes Hopewell shooting
JAMAICA Labour Party caretaker for Eastern Hanover, Paula Kerr-Jarrett, has called for calm in Hopewell, Hanover, following the shooting of a taxi driver by a policeman during a scuffle on Monday.
At the same time, Kerr-Jarrett, in a release, called on the Independent Commission of Investigations (INDECOM) to "leave no stone unturned" in its investigation into the incident. She also noted that a video of the incident was captured and has been circulated across social media, "making it even more critical that not only must justice be done; it must also be seen to be done".
The JLP caretaker also encouraged residents of Hopewell to be respectful to the police, and implored the police to exercise restraint despite the stressful circumstances they face.
She has urged INDECOM to give an update on investigations into an incident involving the police from Hopewell last November that left a teenager dead and another injured.
