sparked instances of the police tampering with evidence he was

chapter in Port Maria over the weekend more in the support a legislative
amendment meant to increase the likelihood of witnesses coming forward
but instead it is hampering the process in some instances attorney at law and
justice of the peace Peter Champa knee says there has been issues of the
witness authenticity and even instances of police interference since the
abolition of the preliminary inquiry hearing this was part of the committee
proceedings Act which came into effect in 2016 there have been claims in the
past and in fact actual situations we are police officers I think in the West
there is one case where the policeman basically created wrote a statement and
signed it with another person’s name and so on and said this person witnessed the
crime and when it was examined with great scrutiny it was discovered that
this person did not exist the police know that this man is a killer cannot
get the evidence so him say okay what I’m going to do I’m going to write a
statement and pretend that John Brown saw him when he killed so-and-so and put
it forward he says that is where JP’s come in so as to preserve the integrity
of that statement and that process whenever statement is collected in that
fashion it has to be what I would term in simple terms authenticated by a
justice of the peace or a police officer above a certain around mr. Ciampa knee

increased the JP’s rule the justice of the peace and their
functions are outlined in going to these areas and see into the protection of

Alexandra and Claremont October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and as
part of our aim to help sensitize the public we will focus on some advice from
the head of the mammography unit at the University Hospital of the West in DES
dr. dairy at Cornwall according to dr. Cornwall your morning
habits may be causing undue worries and pain more in the support from TV jays
kaliesha Williams one in every 21 women in Jamaica gets breast cancer so it’s
nothing to treat lightly persons feeling tenderness lumps and pain in the breasts
are therefore urge to seek medical attention but according to doctor Derry
a Cornwall painting the breasts could be caused by several things that can be
solved by a change of habit for instance wearing the wrong bra sizes or even bent
press exercises at the gym in fact she says a common morning drink could be the
cause of pain in the breasts sometimes we even add some about coffee drinking
because coffee drinking can be linked with breast pain so we may say okay stop
the coffee for a coupla months three months women feeling breast pains
especially those younger than 40 are often advised to increase their vitamin
E in take vitamin E foods include nuts such as almonds
and peanuts as well as green leafy vegetables such as broccoli
dr. Cornwall also urged medical professionals to be more proactive in
dealing with women patients over 40 years each of us you send her for a
mammogram regardless if your family nurse practitioner you’re in a clinic
even if the age should send them now men can get breast cancer too but the
odds are far more favorable just one in nearly 3,000 jamaican men gets breast
cancer but according to dr. Cornwall that is no reason to be unconcerned no
man wants to be that 3,000 man understood
so let me just talk to the man quickly we don’t do routine screening of breasts
for men so we encourage men to be aware of themselves if you feel any lump any
swelling coming right through up to 50 60 70 80 90 100 any man who feels a
change in his breast must go to the doctor and get that checked out

professional players yeah they weren’t here to be and the fact that other
players are given the opportunity you know they need to ensure that they make
the coaching staff job been more difficult and they have to understand
