THE EDITOR, Sir:
I am in total awe at the speed at which the new legislation surrounding scamming was formulated, tabled, debated, and then passed in the Lower House. The bill itself is criminal!
As a young man, I am heartbroken at the fact that so many bills that can help the country are tabled and then shoved, locked away in a box deep in some corner. This includes bills regarding labour laws, justice reform, tax reform, and many others.
I guess we will have to wait until the United States (US) takes offence or has a reason to 'suggest' these changes.
So the US has asked for the extradition of 'scammers', and what it asks for, it usually receives.
May I then ask for the extradition of so many of our politicians that have scammed me and my friends and family members? Let them not be extradited to the States, but to a specially convened court down in the ghetto. Let them be extradited from Red Hills, Beverly Hills and Ironshore.
What about the great scammer that scammed the country in the 1990s? The great one known as Mr FINSAC. The States shall get its justice, but who seeks justice for all us who have been scammed by the Government of Jamaica?
