The Justice Minister Delroy Chuck says he is saddened by the murder of 82-year-old St Ann businessman Colin Corrodus.

Chuck said as a Justice of the Peace (JP), Corrodus served the parish of St Ann with great distinction.

According to him, the murder of the JP at his home is yet another stark reminder of the need to urgently and relentlessly address crime and violence in Jamaica.

Chuck says there must be a collective will to change so that the country can move towards peace, security and justice.

Describing this as a moment of darkness, Chuck said the determination must be to find optimism to lead Jamaica to a better tomorrow.

He also said he is even more determined to accelerate the pace of justice reform.
