THE Andrew Holness-led Administration yesterday announced a zero-tolerance approach towards perpetrators of domestic violence, sexual abuse and grooming of minors signalling its approach towards arresting the growing crime wave sweeping the island.
The announcement of enforcing existing laws comes in the wake of an escalation in crimes against women and children in recent weeks.
Prime Minister Holness, at a hastily-called press conference at the Office of the Prime Minister following a special meeting of the Cabinet, suggested that the nation has been brought to its knees with crime because violence has been used as a currency of social transaction, effectively identifying its root as a cultural one.
Holness promised that the coming crime plan will undoubtedly cause disruption in the way the country has operated.
