Jamaica: Senator raises concern about ‘gangster entertainers’

Government Senator, Charles Sinclair, has accused some entertainers whom he did not name, of being the faces of some criminal gangs operating in the country.

Sinclair, a former Montego Bay Mayor, made the assertion in the Senate on Friday during the debate on the Criminal Justice (Suppression of Criminal Organisations) Act, more popularly known as the ‘anti-gang law’.

“I will go further to say, and nobody can deny this, (that) there are some artistes locally who are the faces of some of the known gangs in Jamaica, wittingly or unwittingly.

They are the faces of some of the gangs,” Sinclair declared without naming any entertainer or gang.

He also questioned the wisdom of the Ministry of National Security facilitating the importation of props which are used as firearms in music videos done locally, depicting acts of violence.
