The New York Chapter (G2K NY) of Generation 2000 the young professional affiliate of the Jamaica Labour Party, is today questioning the judgment of Minister of National Security Peter Bunting in appearing and being a main contributor to the recently aired documentary, “Gangster: America’s Most Evil“, that chronicles the extradition of Christopher "Dudus" Coke, and was broadcasted on A&E television’s Biography Channel.

“Whose interest was Mr. Bunting serving? Nothing Minister Bunting said during the entire interview served the interest of the people of Jamaica or we the members of the Diaspora. In fact Bunting has caused further irreparable damage to our country’s image by alleging in the foreign press that our Attorney General’s Department was being controlled by a criminal” said Patrick Callum, President of G2K NY.

G2K NY noted that some of the allegations made by Bunting were being heard for the first time and are not supported by the findings of the The Manatt - Dudus Enquiry.

“We the members of the Diaspora vigorously defend the image of Jamaica on a daily basis and we hope that when Minister Bunting speaks, especially to the foreign press, he puts aside puerile and tribalistic tendencies and recoginise that the foreign press does not separate Government based on political party. As such an allegation that a Government was corrupted by a kingpin, further cements in the mind of the world that Jamaica is a corrupt country, which includes the current government” added Callum

G2K NY further noted that Minister Bunting’s spewing of negativity about Jamaica has further setback the positive spotlight and inroads the stride s made by agencies like the Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB) and Jamaica Promotion Corporation (JAMPRO) over the years in painting a complimentary picture of Jamaica.

“The people of Jamaica, and Jamaicans in the Diaspora, deserve at least an apology from Minister Bunting for his faux pas”concluded Callum.
