The pressure group Citizens Action for Principles and Integrity (CAPI) is warning the Government that it is prepared to frown on and stridently oppose further tax on fuel.
"This will have an inescapable debilitating effect on the Jamaican people, particularly public-sector workers who are asked to band their bellies and the already marginalised poor who are incapable of absorbing anymore," argued Dennis Meadows, co-convenor of CAPI.
According to Meadows, the country is being told that there's a significant shortfall in projected revenue earnings and that the Government is mulling the possibility of a furthertaxation on fuel but this should not be considered.
