  1. Listen if the government does not practice what they preach such as good governance why the hell do they think that JP will do the same sigh. Now, DPP she of all the persons shouldn’t say a word

  2. Investing in crypto now should be in every wise individuals list, in some months time you’ll be ecstatic with the decision you made today.

  3. A now unuh a know that about these TOP SCAMMERS, I mean JPs, unuh late….monkey see monkey do🙄

  4. Only one JP I have come across so far who NEVER collect money from clients and he works at a library in Clarendon, plus you have to show him proper indentification before he sign ANY documents for you, I hope he still maintained his integrity as I don’t live in Clarendon anymore…sir yuh know yourself, BIG UP!!

  5. Real talk I strongly knew that the cxc students need to get at least one more year or two more years in school this body of peoples don’t know what they are doing

  6. How is it a slap in the face? The only place in Portmore that had a market was Gregory Park. The land is available there. However, if there’s a more central area, so let it be!!!

  7. JPs and also politicians need to Set good examples and also hand in theirs too. All of you need to clean up your acts Paula you are not better kettle cannot tell pot say they black.

  8. This thing about JP’s charging for notorizing is not only done in Jamaica but USA also. That’s criminal behavior.

    1. There is a difference between a JP and a Notary. International documents are normally signed by a notary.

      ” In Jamaica, a Notary Public is an Attorney-at-Law with a standing of at least ten years.  A Notary Public is authorized to authenticate contracts, acknowledge deeds, take affidavits, protest bills of exchange, and take depositions.”
      International documents are normally signed by a notary. And a Notary is permitted to charge a fee for their service as the work is more intense.

      “A Justice of the Peace (JP) is a person of unquestionable integrity who seeks to promote and protect the rights of individuals and helps to give justice to those persons in a particular community.

      The office of a Justice of the Peace is a voluntary one; therefore a JP must not charge or accept any reward for services performed in this capacity. Justices of the Peace are not usually required to have a formal legal education in order to qualify for the office.

      However, every JP is expected to complete a period of training before he/she is commissioned into office. JPs are governed by a Code of Conduct.

    2. @Beverley Smith I see the passage you posted from the Jamaican government website; and although the passage is correct, please note that the comparison I made above was between a US notary public on one hand and a Jamaican JP on the other. This is because that is the comparison Bb Hjh made in the lead comment.

    3. @Dak G Yes, there is nothing wrong with what you posted but I posted comment as a point of clarification for those who may read the comments about what the current position is in relation to that of the role of Justice of the Peace and that of a Notary in Jamaica.

    4. @Beverley Smith I get that and appreciate your clarification. My response also was to clarify my comment so that readers would not confuse the two.

  9. That is the worst place to put a market in Portmore..
    Too much criminals living in that area..

  10. How much more burden u all want to put on employer we have so much to take care of high light bill hivh water bill high taxes now u sit up there in your chair never employ anybody useing your platform to encourage peopleto take off from work when they feel like at employer expenses ps.when you all lower utility bills and high taxes then we will be able to adress the situation

  11. Can someone tell me where you can go to meet a Justice of the peace, the system of the Justice of the peace needs to be revamped, the antiquated way of thinking needs changing, I wanted to get documents for a passport to be signed for me and my daughter by one it took me a day, I visited six that day and it was not until I visited my Justice it got signed.

  12. So what happen
    to the hospital in Portmore? So who a go a market so far, town wi say, not a G. Park

  13. Sir, In what world are you expecting those JP to act in the highest ability? Not in Jamaica!!! right. Jamaican JP’s scammers and extortionist it cost me $6500jd to fill a section on my birth certificates in Kingston in January, and to make matters worse, the lady was ignorant and rude, but I paid it.
