Kingston, Jamaica (McN) – Senator Floyd Morris, Opposition Deputy Spokesman on Labour and Social Security, has beckoned the Kingston and St Andrew Corporation (KSAC) to hasten payment to Mr Carlo Bruce, a blind man who fell over a Kingston bridge in 2015.
Mr. Carlo Bruce reportedly suffered severe injuries during the 2015 fall.
The incident was placed before the Combined Disabilities Association (CDA) and the Public Defender, who represented Bruce on to the KSAC.
Senator Morris reports, KSAC accepted liability for the incident, agreed to pay $1.1 million to Bruce. However, since that agreement, Bruce was not paid.
