‘It Should’ve Been Me’ – Blair Reflects on Al Miller’s Sentence

146

The former Political Ombudsman Bishop Herro Blair, says it should have been him on trial and not the Reverend Al Miller.

Speaking outside the courthouse, he told members of the media that he had the first chance to bring in the former Tivoli don to face justice.

The Bishop broke down in tears during the proceedings on hearing that Miller was not given jail time.

During the West Kingston Commission of Enquiry it was revealed that both Blair and Miller had spoken to then Commissioner of Police Owen Ellington, and were unofficially tasked with de-escalating the situation in Tivoli Gardens in May 2010.

Queen’s Counsel Jacqueline Samuels-Brown, argued in court today that the clergymen were not told to stand down after the security forces operation had ended.

Bishop Blair says the court ruling will change how Ministers of Religion assist the Police in turning in wanted persons.
