KINGSTON, Jamaica:
A former Tivoli Gardens resident has testified that he lost approximately $300,000 in salaries after he was shot in the arm during the 2010 police-military operations in the west Kingston community.

George Harriott told the West Kingston Commission of Enquiry being held at the Jamaica Conference Centre that he was shot as he was about to re-enter his North Street home on May 25, 2010.

Harriott said as a result of his injuries he was hospitalised for 25 days between May and November and had to undergo surgery.

Noting that his hand is still not completely healed, the former Tivoli Gardens resident said he has another surgery to do.

The delivery driver said this resulted in lost wages totalling approximately $300,000.
