Kingston, 13 January 2020 - The Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, the Honourable Olivia Grange, is calling on Jamaicans to intervene to end gender based violence.

Minister Grange made the plea as she condemned acts of domestic violence during which Suzanne Easy of Portmore, St Catherine, and Nevia Sinclair of Nain, St. Elizabeth, were reportedly killed by their partners.

“We are all outraged by these acts which continue to bedevil our society; but we can stop them by getting involved to end the gender violence that we know is taking place next door. It’s time for us to stop labelling gender-based violence as man and woman affair. It is a horrific crime that we all have a role in bringing to an end. By our intervention, we will save lives. “

Minister Grange expressed condolences to the family and friends of Miss Easy and Miss Sinclair.

A suspect in the Sinclair killing is in police custody.
