The issue of rising crime and violence in St. James, will feature prominently in discussions to be held on Wednesday (March 13), when the executive of the Montego Bay Chamber of Commerce and Industry, meets.

This, in the wake of several shootings, murders, and robberies in recent weeks, the latest involving a money courier, and his security escort, who were attacked and shot dead by armed robbers, in Montego Bay, yesterday (March 10).

Montego Bay Chamber President, Winston Lawson, said business operators are becoming more concerned, about the crime rising levels, especially since the State of Public Emergency, ended.

He said the Chamber will also discuss the concerns of Chinese business operators.

Some Chinese operated businesses have been the target of recent robberies.
