The Minister of Home Affairs the Hon. Walton Brown JP MP wishes to advise that no application for a work permit has been received for the entertainer, R. Kelly. When considering the approval of a work permit, the Minister is required to take into consideration the character of the person.

The Minister of National Security the Hon. Wayne M. Caines, JP, MP, today issued the following statement regarding the firearm incident which occurred in the early hours of this morning at The Docksider Pub and Restaurant, Front Street, Hamilton.

“The management of Docksider can confirm that an incident took place at the bar shortly after midnight on May 16th. The incident itself was unrelated to any patrons that were in the establishment at the time. Unfortunately it seems the individuals being targeted were in close proximity to Docksider and ran into Docksider to seek refuge therefore our business was affected. Docksider is cooperating fully with the BPS in this matter.

In spite of the commitment, dedication and progress of successive governments in dealing with gun violence, in tandem with many community groups, it is most concerning to learn of a reported incident of gunshots last night in Hamilton and on the back of recent incidents in our streets.
