Police efforts to secure International Women's Football teams being hampered by hotel
2013-10-30 11:15:27 | (0 Comments)
The Jamaica Constabulary Force is reportedly being prevented from securing seven International Women's Football Teams now staying at the Holiday Inn Sunspree Resort in Montego Bay.
The teams from the USA, Canada, Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala, Trinidad and Tobago and Haiti arrived on the weekend.
They will be participating in the World Cup qualifying CONCACAF U-17 Women's Championship, which starts today.
It is understood that the police have been trying to establish the State's security apparatus around the teams since the weekend but are being resisted by the hotel.
The hotel’s management has reportedly stated that they “do not want any police on their premises".
The hotel has insisted that its security guards are competent to ensure the safety of the teams.
When the executive office of the Holiday Inn Sunspree Resort was contacted for a comment via the telephone by The Gleaner, our request for a comment was flatly rejected.
The woman who answered the call refused to allow contact with general manager Clarke Lobban.
While refusing to give her name, the individual from Holiday Inn said all matters relating to their guest, who are involved in the CONCACAF Under-17 tournament should be addressed to Nicola Madden Greig at the Courtleigh Hotel, in Kingston.
When the Courtleigh was contacted, we were told that Madden Greig would be out of office for the remainder of the week.
