Jamaica Crime News, Kingston: Wednesday, February 6, was the day slated when over 40 deportees were expected to be flown back to their land of birth in Jamaica, but seven of the accused were given the magic touch and granted an amnesty of stay, back in England.
The other deportees were placed on a chartered flight from Birmingham, England on Wednesday morning and are expected to land at the Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston.
Mckoy’s News learnt that over 27 of these deportees are known hardcore criminals, who were arrested on charges ranging from rape, murder and shooting.
We also learnt that the Government of Jamaica will now be processing these individuals to determine the nature of their crimes and to make a decision on what fate will be handed down on them.
Mckoy’s News carries out a poll around the second city of Montego Bay on Wednesday and everyone seems to share the same opinion that these criminals should be housed where they committed the crime.
Mr Leslie Green, a businessman man who operates in downtown Montego Bay, suggested that it is time the government of Jamaica took a page out of the Englishmen’s book, and stat shipping hardcore foreign criminals back to their own country.
