He’s made the declaration as persons continue to react to alleged gangster, Tesha Miller, on Tuesday, being fined 100 dollars for making a false declaration to Jamaican immigration officials.

There’ve been expressions of shock and surprise among parliamentarians and ordinary people.

The Attorney General, Marlene Malahoo Forte, says the fine makes a mockery of the justice system.

The parish judge who handed it down, Sancia Burrell, described it as ‘embarrassing’. Speaking last evening on Nationwide @5, Minister Chuck agreed. But he says his Ministry takes ‘some responsibility’.

Miller was charged under the 1945 Immigration Restriction Commonwealth Citizens Act, which carries a maximum fine of 100 dollars.

Meanwhile, the Justice Minister says, over the past year, the fines set down by several pieces of legislation have been increased.
