Political Ombudsman, Donna Parchment Brown, has apologized for her comments to our news centre on Sunday that her office was treating the double shooting in Annotto Bay St Mary on the weekend as being politically motivated.
Yesterday Assistant Commissioner, Norman Heywood, said the shootings were not linked to politics.
Mrs. Parchment Brown says she’s pleased to hear the position of the police on the matter.
And, Mrs. Parchment Brown is to visit sections of South East St Mary today amid an escalation in political tension in recent days. She’s to be accompanied by a member of the police high command.
The Political Ombudsman says there were no reported incidents yesterday.
And, Mrs. Parchment Brown is agreeing with the observation that most of the breaches of the code of conduct in the constituency are being committed by outsiders.
