After Shineka Gray’s Murder Illegal Taxi Targeting Begins

Kingston, Jamaica (McN) – In a press conference Prime Minister Andrew Holness, gave notice that the government will be implementing a Zero Tolerance plan towards perpetrators of domestic violence, sexual abuse and grooming of minors.

In the wake of the murder of 15-year-old Shineka Gray who reportedly took an illegal taxi heading for home before she went missing, and the more recent Eltham park taxi driver charged with forcing an 18-year-old female to massage his private part until he ejaculated – the Jamaican Government is including the targeting of illegal Taxi’s, as one of the measures to reduce crime.

Targeting will begin islandwide on Monday February, 13.


“…as part of the zero-tolerance approach, the police, assisted by the Transport Authority, will be targeting ‘robot’ (illegal) taxis as of Monday next week, and will be removing dark tints from all public passenger vehicles.” Briefed Jamaica’s Prime Minster.
