Jamaica is a hotbed of news activity – most surrounding the recent Wiki Leaks. suprisingly Desmond McKenzie the mayor of Kingston was hit between the eyes when he was named in the Dudus affair as a wall builder. Whew..
so many folks are getting hit upside the head in town, that it’s beginning to seem like a collection point for the international headhunters. really reallly reallllly not good. specially if you’ve done something under the guise of government action. that’s illegal incase they forgot – so that means we’re gonna see a whole new class of criminals being collected.
wonder where they’ll house em since they can’t obviously put them in with the regular criminals. shiddd, they’re wayyyy too dangerous and crafty for that. the rest of the ordinary criminals would immediately fall prey to these high level manipulators. that’s all we need to add to the picture to make it bubble past curry.

Kingston Mayor Desmond McKenzie – file photo
The British-based Guardian newspaper has released a damning cable from the US Government obtained through Wikileaks which claims that the Mayor of Kingston Desmond McKenzie met with US Embassy officials to lobby against the extradition of alleged crime lord, Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke.
The leaked cable dated September 2, 2009, said McKenzie started the meeting by pointedly stating that the Government of Jamaica faced a serious crisis because of Washington’s request for the extradition of Christopher Coke to stand trial on narcotics and firearms charges in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.
According to the cable, McKenzie warned about “severe repercussions” and “collateral damage” if Coke were to be extradited
My My My Myyyyy My… Desmond knew better and surely this cannot go unpunished. the mayor of the capital city colluding to prevent the capture of a known wanted man ? this is not what anyone would expect – but the reality is that he did it to keep his city from burning to the ground.
Desmond like all political powerbrokers knows who holds the cards, at any given moment. therefore he knew that Dwight Nelson would pour lighter fluid on him and set his city ablaze if he didn’t do something. we think you’re starting to get the picture more clearly now of how this all played out.
Unfortunantly Dwight Nelson seems to think that his hands are clean even though he is the most culpable in the entire situation. his actions were particularly dubious toward the Jamaican People and for that he should most certainly be measured, drawn and quartered – in the prison oval.
Be it for all to see, because this is the only way to stop this type of organized criminal government activity. The Prime Minister waited as long as he could to deliver his skim milk response to the entire scandal. if he had any real bamboo he’d take it and beat himself over the coconuts until he gets his cabinet in gear. This is the response to the WikiLeaks revelations from the office of Prime Minister Bruce Golding
Men Who Swear on Lil Bibles must think we don’t realize that it was also another lying man who RE-Wrote and Shrunk the Truth Out of Their Lil Books
Prime Minister Hon. Bruce Golding
Following the publication on Tuesday, of what is reported to be a classified internal missive by an official of the US Interests Section in Havana, Cuba which commented negatively on Jamaica’s level of cooperation with Cuba in countering drug trafficking, the Prime Minister directed the Minister of National Security to carry out investigations into the allegations and submit a report to him.
The investigations confirm that in 2009 concern was expressed by officials of the Cuban Ministry of the Interior about the failure of the unit within the JCF to adequately respond to communication from its Cuban counterpart. The officer who headed that unit and who had been assigned in 2006 was replaced and the unit was reorganized and renamed the Transnational Crime Narcotics Division.
Since then, there has been full and active cooperation between Jamaica and Cuba on counter-narcotics surveillance and interdiction and no concern has been expressed by officials of the Cuban government. This cooperation has since assisted in the conviction of a number of persons on charges of drug trafficking.
Officers from the Transnational Crime Narcotics Division and other security forces personnel have made a number of visits to Cuba, the most recent being less than a month ago, to confer with Cuban authorities on ongoing efforts to combat drug trafficking and measures to strengthen cooperation between Jamaica and Cuba. These include greater interface among high level officers of both countries involved in counter narcotics, intelligence sharing and interdiction operations.
Issued by: The Office of the Prime Minister
This is the response from Dwight Nelsons Office to the allegations that his dept has both done nothing and also stood mute at a meeting with the Cubans on the Drug Interdiction Problems. He is arguing with Admiral Lewin who makes many good points – that of course Dwight Nelson rides right over..
somebody slap him till his lipstick straightens please.. Me never know a duppy fi walk a daytime.. so him mussa zombie.
Arthur Hall, Senior Staff Reporter
The WikiLeaks release of a 2009 cable highlighting Cuban authorities’ concerns about Jamaica’s efforts to deal with the international drug trade has sparked a fresh war of words between National Security Minister Dwight Nelson and former police commissioner, Rear Admiral Hardley Lewin.
Rear Admiral Lewin
The two men had a public spat earlier this year after Lewin charged that alleged crime boss Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke was tipped off minutes after he briefed Nelson about an extradition request from the United States.
With that dispute still simmering below the surface, the two men are at it again.
Late last week, Lewin told The Gleaner that he had no recollection of Cuba having a problem with the force during 2009, as suggested by the leaked cable.
Dwight Nelson fires back
Lewin also shot down an earlier suggestion from Nelson that the then head of the Narcotics Division, Senior Superintendent Carlton Wilson, was reassigned because of these concerns.
According to Lewin, Wilson was transferred under his watch, but it had nothing to do with complaints from Cuba.
Nelson fired back in a release yesterday. While again not naming Wilson, the security minister refuted the claims of the former commissioner.
Nelson said a probe by a high- powered team (that he led) found that there were at least 20 letters from the Cuban government between January 2006 and November 2009 addressed to the head of the JCF Narcotics Division.
The security minister claimed these letters included requests for information on persons arrested in Cuba on suspected drug activities.
According to Nelson, there was no record of responses to the Cubans.
“The Government of Jamaica finds it hard to believe that the then commissioner (Lewin) was unaware of these letters from the Cuban government, and the subsequent failure to respond,” the national security minister’s release stated yesterday.
Nelson also stood by his December 16 statement that any improvement in the relations between Kingston and Havana came after the head of the Narcotics Division was removed and the division renamed.
But again he was careful not to make an overt link between the Cuban concerns and the transfer.
“It is a fact that it was subsequent to this officer’s removal, restructuring and renaming of the division, and a visit to Cuba by the new head that a new cooperation developed between the JCF’s Transnational Crime and Narcotics Division and the Cuban authorities,” said Nelson.
However, he did not respond to Lewin’s claim that the Jamaican Government’s handling of the WikiLeaks cable was unfortunate.
Nelson also steered clear of the claim by chairman of the Police Officers’ Association, Senior Superintendent Michael James, that Wilson’s reassignment was routine.
James last week argued that Wilson’s reassignment gave him greater responsibility and really reflected a promotion.
According to Nelson, the comments by the former commissioner were examined by an investigating committee from his ministry which included himself; his acting permanent secretary, Dianne McIntosh; Deputy Police Commissioner Glenmore Hinds, and Chief of Defence Staff, Major General Antony Anderson.
Other members of the investigating team were JDF Colonel Trevor Lecky; Superintendent Wrenford Robinson, of the Transnational Crime and Narcotics Division, and Assistant Superintendent Keisha Scott.
