Jamaica: Man who ‘dissed’ Holness in curfew resistance fined $60,000

The man who earlier this year launched an expletive-laden tirade in a video against the prime minister about the introduction of an all-island curfew, and who was later found hiding under a bed, has been fined $60, 000, with an alternative of 90 days in prison, for breaches of the Disaster Risk Management (Enforcement Measures) (No. 2) (Amendment) (No.2) Order, 2020

The fines were imposed in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court on Wednesday against 37-year-old Dayne Mitchell of a Penso Street, Arnett Gardens, St Andrew address.

Mitchell was seen in a viral social media video stating his refusal to comply with the order which was imposed as part of the Holness Administration’s efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19 in the country.
