Police Commissioner Chester Williams has condemned the massive publicity that Jasmin Hartin has been receiving since the killing of Superintendent Henry Jemmott on May twenty-eight. The Commissioner who is also a trained attorney has noted that there could possibly be ramifications due to the excessive media coverage.
Chester Williams, Commissioner of Police: “I am not going to go much into that matter. I believe that it has been ventilated enough in the media or in the public. I wish yes there was no that level of media coverage. In law there’s a thing called pretrial publicity and pretrial publicity is a very important aspect of the law in the sense that it can cause a person to not receive a fair trial and so I think that with the level of publicity we have seen and particularly the interview given in the San Ignacio Town police station ought not to have occurred but that being the case let us try as best as we can to not have it continue to be in the public domain so I’m not going to add to that at this time.”
