The Press Association of Jamaica (PAJ) notes with concern the reports that death threats have been leveled against two members of the media, Karyl Walker, of the Jamaica Observer, and Abka Fitz-Henley, of Nationwide News Network.

While it is not unusual for Jamaican journalists to be threatened because of their work, the PAJ views every threat seriously and condemns those misguided members of the public who believe violence should be their reaction at all times whenever there is news or opinions which they do not support.

The PAJ is urging the police to investigate the threats and to take action to ensure the safety of Mr. Walker and Mr. Fitz-Henley.

The PAJ is also reminding journalists to continue doing their work without fear or favour, even as they make every effort to ensure their personal safety.
