  1. What a load of bull$h!t!! They knew about it turn a blind eye with the hope it would carry on without the public uproar but it backfired like the yengyeng bike.

  3. Well the mocho event looked well attended. Congratulations to Rick’s Cafe.

    It is evident that the Tourism Ministry, Tourist Board and others had at least direct or constructive knowledge of the event.

    “Breach of protocols” is different from having knowledge of the event. A breach can take place in a bus or supermarket. This can be corrected very easily.

    Can you please ask Rick’s Cafe to let me know when the next party will take place.

    1. Agree when next big party keep but this time Dem will come with them own cameras film show and prove and send it out. To look like dem do their job right all them calls came from the top and forward down to smaller fish to carry out not to interfer

  4. If a local knock him dutch pot two times them find him .I’m in canada and i know about it .two different rules .everybody in the government knew, everybody in the tourism industry know.

  5. The problem is Jamaican people do not love their own kind so the laws will never be equal it is hard to be a Jamaican and a black man at the same time….

The people elect these dirty politicians who only come to sink poor people of this country them cant even open shops after certain hours and look at that series of party corrupt leaders who full their pockets and look to the side .
