With reference to the development process of the strategy, MSTEM Minister of State Julian Robinson stated, "The success for implementing any strategy has a direct link with the availability of human and financial resources. Jamaica would not have been able to get this far in the process without the assistance of our partners. The commitment of OAS-CICTE to this process has not just been for the drafting of the Strategy but also to the implementation. We recognize that skills to combat cyber crime are limited but we are pleased to have accessibility to capacity building which is being offered by our partners."
She stressed however that "when we get paid by the Government, we pay Petrojam the next day."
Peter proves the point that a little knowledge is a very dangerous thing. So, his claim that the rightright to privacy "does not permit illegal acts to be done in the privacy of one's home" presumes that a statute banning any private activity is inherently valid under our constitution!
"This situation calls for urgent action," Dr Jones, vice-chairman of the NRSC, said. "The first action needs to take place with the police significantly ramping up their campaign against speeding and careless driving across the island. The second action should take place with the Government supplying the traffic division of the Jamaica Constabulary Force with the necessary resources they need to clamp down on reckless drivers. Third, combined efforts of the public and private sector to provide the NRSC with additional resources, and together with the funds provided by the Government of Jamaica, through the National Health Fund, assist in ramping up considerably the kind of public education required to address this national problem."
