Bunting says Jamaica committed to transparency after Amnesty Int'l flak

National Security Minister Peter Bunting says the Jamaican Government is committed to transparency and accountability in the operations of the Security Forces. Minister Bunting was responding to a statement by Amnesty International which criticized the Minister for withholding information regarding alleged abuses by the Jamaica Constabulary Force. The Minister stated that a Commission of Enquiry into the May 2010 Tivoli Gardens incursion has been established, and that it fully backs probes launched by the INDECOM. He added that any group concerned with preservation of Human Rights must recognise that "it would have been highly improper, prejudicial, and an abuse of process for a Minister of National Security to disclose information on matters which are a) currently the subject of investigation by an independent body, and b) presently before the courts." Bunting added that once these investigations are complete reports will be released to the public.
