Ministry of Justice | 2013-07-29 00:00:00

The Minister of Justice, Senator the Hon. Mark Golding, joins in the condemnation of the brutal slaying of 17-year-old Dwayne Jones by a mob at a dance in St. James on 22nd July 2013.

Given our country's history of brutality and the pluralistic nature of our society, all well-thinking Jamaicans must embrace the principle of respect for the basic human rights of all persons.

This principle requires tolerance towards minority groups, and non-violence in our dealings with those who manifest a lifestyle that differs from the majority of us.

Depraved acts of violence against individuals such as Dwayne Jones have to cease. The police must spare no effort in bringing the perpetrators to justice, so that any persons who may be inclined to indulge in such vile brutality will know that they cannot do so with impunity.
