A report compiled by Jamaican investigators who probed allegations of extra-judicial killings by the police here between 2010 and 2011, said that a police ‘death list’ indeed existed.

Then Prime Minister, Doctor Kenny Anthony, in an address to the nation, quoted the report as saying that the police staged fake encounters and planted weapons on persons to justify the fatal shootings.

The shootings occurred during a police campaign dubbed – Operation Restore Confidence.

    In regards to describing the place where the incident occurred, it is best to use the name of the area rather than business places. Example “Lewis was reported to be exiting the Windjammer Landing gap” this is not correct, it is the Trouya gap.
