General Secretary of the Jamaica Umbrella Groups of Churches Gary Harriott says pastors still have a role to play in helping wanted persons surrender.

The General Secretary of the Jamaica Umbrella Groups of Churches Gary Harriott is encouraging pastors to continue helping wanted persons to surrender to the police despite yesterday’s sentencing of popular pastor Reverend Merrick Al Miller.

Pastors often accompany wanted men to the authorities but after yesterday’s sentencing Bishop Herro Blair said pastors need to rethink helping the police.

Reverend Harriott says pastors still have a role to play in helping wanted persons surrender.

However, he is urged clergymen to seek advice from security personnel when doing this.
