Newlands Still Tense

Member of Parliament for for East Central St Catherine, Arnadlo Brown, says things are still tense within his constituency.

This after the murders of PNP supporter Sadie Forbes and relative of JLP supporters Jermaine Nicholas Vassel in the Constituency.

Speaking with Nationwide News Mr. Brown says things are still unsettled but quiet.

Mr. Brown says he is still eagerly awaiting further information from the Police in regard to the murder.

Miss Forbes it is alleged was killed for removing a JLP flag from her gate, and Mr. Vassel was killed in apparent retaliation.

MP Brown says while several of those flags have been removed some still remain in the constituency.

Meanwhile Mrs. Parchment Brown says only the Prime Minister has so far responded to her request for a meeting on political conduct.

She says that meeting is scheduled for the 18th of this month.

The Ombudsman had requested the meeting last week after initial meetings with the General Secretaries of both political parties.

During a JIS interview earlier today Mrs. Parchment Brown says the meetings with the leaders are a means of engaging them in regard to matters of political conduct.
