Gov’t finally talk up on Wikileaks report

No Comments

The Government finally breaks its silence on the controversial WikiLeaks report that Jamaica was uncooperative in the drug fight in the region. The Office of the Prime Minister (OPM) says investigations by the national security minister confirm that in 2009 concern was expressed by officials of the Cuban Ministry of the Interior about the failure of the unit within the police force to adequately respond to communication from its Cuban counterpart.
The OPM says the officer who headed that unit and who had been assigned in 2006 was replaced and the unit was reorganised and renamed the Transnational Crime Narcotics Division.
It says since then, there has been full and active cooperation between Jamaica and Cuba on counter-narcotics surveillance and interdiction and no concern has been expressed by officials of the Cuban government.
