Jamaica: Sinclair trashes red-light district for MoBay

Calls for a red-light district to be established along the Jimmy Cliff Boulevard in Montego Bay, St James, have triggered stout resistance from Councillor Charles Sinclair.

The government senator slammed Montego Bay Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MBCCI) President Janet Silvera for advocating for the regulation of sex work in the tourist capital.

Sinclair, councillor for the Montego Bay North East division, said that the $150 million Silvera proposed for the building out of the sex trade would be better spent investing in more gainful activity.

“I was taken aback because I was saying that as a female, instead of advocating first to say ‘let us create a red-light district,’ why not seek to improve a woman’s morals and decency? You should be saying, ‘Come, let us get you into something that can advance you as a woman’,” Sinclair said at the monthly meeting of the St James Municipal Corporation on Thursday.
