Freedom of the press

Pin It

Prime Minister Andrew Holness sought to assure media practitioners who have come under attack from Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) platforms in Manchester and Portland that his Government support democracy and freedom of speech.

Speaking during the Private Sector Association of Jamaica (PSOJ) Christmas lunch at the Wyndham hotel in New Kingston, the prime minister said the Government was not against the work of the media, but only wanted balance and fairness.

“I am noticing that there is a little bit of agitation in the press. And I want to say here publicly that this Government believes in freedom of the press, safety of the press.”
