The national security minister, Peter Bunting has weighed in on the controversy over the attendance of the Commissioner of the Independent Commission of Investigations at a press conference hosted by Jamaicans for Justice.

Speaking on RJR last night, the national security minister was reluctant to comment on the matter, saying he does not want it to appear as though he is issuing instructions.

However, Bunting said both himself and the justice minister Senator Mark Golding have offered to help to relieve the tension that has developed between the INDECOM commissioner Terrence Williams and the police.

Since attending the JFJ press conference, the Jamaica Police Federation has called for the INDECOM Commissioner to resign saying it no longer has confidence in him.

The federation has also written to the Governor General and the Prime Minister asking for their intervention.
