The Private Sector Organisation of Jamaica (PSOJ) wants to register our support for the limited
State of Emergency (SOE) called on Thursday January 18th for
areas in St. James.
The PSOJ had earlier this month expressed significant concern that the crime situation was out of
control, as was evidenced by the brazen murders that were taking place across the island, but
particularly in the region of our tourist ca
pital, Montego Bay.
Crime, and the general lawlessness, in the society has not only threatened our number one foreign
exchange earner and business, but more importantly has restricted the movement and rights of all
law abiding Jamaican citizens and the si
tuation was untenable.
