Golding says the commitment and enthusiasm he witnessed during last week’s celebration of Restorative Justice Week are clear signs that Jamaicans will embrace this form of dispute resolution.
Restorative justice is a process that allows all the parties involved in a dispute to come together to resolve and discuss ways to deal with the aftermath and its implications for the future.
During last week’s celebrations, the Restorative Justice Unit in the Ministry of Justice opened three centres in the inner-city communities of Trench Town and August Town in Kingston, and Russia in Westmoreland.
This brings to seven, the number of centres opened across the island to serve approximately 10 communities.
