Prime Minister Andrew Holness is calling on young men in society to end the cycle of harassment and violence against women.
Mr. Holness says the permissive attitude towards violence cannot be tolerated in the country.
Mr. Holness took the unusual step to address the issue on a political platform during a JLP Area two meeting in Portmore, St. Catherine.
He’s calling on members of the JLP to ensure they do not take part in such behaviour.
Prime Minister Holness argues that the JLP must extend its message of prosperity to also include peace.
