UTech Jamaica: Government in Danger of Botching NIDS by Prof. Paul Golding, Dean, COBAM November 29, 2017

Posted by utechalumni in UTech News.

Politically , the Andrew Holness-led Government is making a real hash of the implementation of the national identification system (NIDS). A cursory review of the countries that have implemented NIDS indicates that there are some common concerns that citizens have prior to implementation. They include exactly what Jamaicans are concerned about: the potential threat to civil liberty, lack of confidence in the reliability and safety of the system, and a belief that they are quite simply unnecessary and irrelevant. Armed with this knowledge, good management and good politics suggest that the Government seeks to allay these real fears prior to implementation.

To exacerbate the situation, the actions in Parliament to push through this Bill, and the apparent waffling by the prime minister, create more fear — which the Opposition is likely to use to galvanise citizens against the NIDS. Jamaicans have strong cultural and religious objections to what is required in the NIDS, which are real, but generally unfounded. (more…)

UTech Jamaica: Taking justice reform to the next level, Article by Henry Lewis, Lecturer, FELS November 29, 2017

The judiciary is one of the most important arms of government. Its chief mission is to resolve disputes in a just and timely manner to protect the rights and liberties of not some or those who can afford it, but of all, thereby facilitating the attainment of the rule of law. It performs this function by providing independent, non-political, accessible, and responsive fora for the resolution of matters of law.

I am not a lawyer nor am I a legal luminary, I am a behavioural scientist who has a deep interest in the well-being of nations and justice that has a direct link to well-being. I have been observing the Jamaican judiciary for the past 20 years, and I have concluded that Jamaican governments past and present have failed the Jamaican people. (more…)

Reid Eyeing Changes To Gain Entrance To Norman Manley Law School

The Government will be engaging in discussions with stakeholders to resolve issues surrounding entrance to the Norman Manley Law School (NMLS), located at the Mona campus of the University of the West Indies (UWI).

Education Minister Ruel Reid said that Cabinet is in agreement that the current mode of admission to the law school should end, as it is not equitable and was also discriminatory.

To this end, Reid is to work with the Attorney General, the Minister of Justice, the General Legal Council and the University of the West Indies (UWI) to give effect to the directive.
