live via television radio and the internet and it’s time for a break here
on the midday news but stay with us more so
is right after these messages welcome back and we’re continuing the
news a government senator has again defended the government’s push for the
implicate implementation of a national identification system saying it’s an
important tool in helping to quickly identify and catch criminals Senator
Charles Sinclair was responding to opposition senator Lambert Brown who
questioned the crime fighting strategy T BJ’s Krista Campbell reports at
Wednesday’s the sitting of the Senate Lambert Brown pointed to a spiraling
crime situation plagued in the island and a government he said is losing the
fight to bring crime figures down he noted that robberies remain a challenge
making special note of a recent incident at a Western Union in st. Elizabeth
unknown brothers got cornered within 24 hours three weeks know how we can corner
some breeds of criminal robbing a Santa Cruz business in the bright up there and
it tells me where to dote and have some lack of confidence in the leadership
that feel to capture those people he insisted tools are available for the
government to use to help solve certain crimes especially when they’re caught on
camera that went senator Kerry night was Minister national security official
recognition the technology official recognition was introduced to pika that technology exists in the world
it exists in Jamaica has it been used and it has that has been doing a very
good job in identifying persons who may have applied for passports using other
names and income back since the implementation of that system and I’ve
applied for passports it picks them up quite quickly
government Senator Charles Sinclair stressed it’s why his government had
been advocating for the of a central identification system which
would among other things help to make it easier to catch criminals video footage
from the robbed reality in st. Elizabeth watching against because those persons
may have no identification at all they may not be the ruin of a passport they
may not be who will offer an electoral identification
so what Christa Campbell TVJ News there’s a call this afternoon for
Jamaicans to do more to protect the environment by restricting developments
which destroy forestry and mangroves there’s also a view that local hoteliers
should contribute towards conservation efforts more in this report the second
tourism resilience summit of the Americas was teased and the regional
headquarters of the University of the West Indies over two days last week and
the stakeholders who attended warned local authorities about paying lip
service to environmental protection for them promises and plans won’t save
residents the infrastructure and the environment when disaster strikes a call
was therefore made for local leaders to prove they are serious by stopping the
destruction of critical areas such as forests and Mont groves in Montego Bay
there is a Marine Park which protects all the coral reefs that the hotels and
Montego Bay use for visitors but they do not pay the operational cost of that
Marine Park so there’s a spillover I’m not an economist but I know spill overs
are bad and I know externalizing costs about it causes all kinds of distortions
so you know one of the things you’ll have to figure out is how do you stop
the distortions how do you create a fair and just economy as far as tourism is
concerned and in your own self-interests how do you make sure that the natural
basis for your business continues to survive in addition to saving
livelihoods conservation efforts can also save lives one of his speakers at
the summit recalled his trip to a Baku in the Bahamas
just months before Hurricane dor-win struck Heaphy is a region including
Jamaica should learn lessons from what that hurricane did in Nabucco out of all
the destinations we chose to reach out to conduct two of our annual crisis
readiness in response workshops which we rotate every year ironically we did them
in Abaco and Grand Bahama in April our challenge with how to better prepare and
respond to these unfortunate and increasingly frequent occurrences and
pay professor ation regional leaders were also encouraged to use their
collective voice at global summits to get action on climate change or Shane
masters TV genius and that’s the midday news I’m Andrea Chisholm join us at 7:00
for the prime time news package on behalf of the news sports and production
teams good afternoon
