Kingston, 30 June 2020 – The Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, the Honourable Olivia Grange, has expressed sadness at the passing of the Superintendent of Police Leon Clunis.
Superintendent Clunis died in hospital on Tuesday (today) where he had been receiving treatment after he was shot by gunmen in an operation in Horizon Park in Spanish Town, St Catherine on June 12.
Minister Grange said:
“Superintendent Clunis was an outstanding policeman who was very serious about his commitment to serve, protect and reassure the people of Jamaica.
He was a strong defence against crime and violence in several communities where he earned our respect and gratitude each day.
I had been in contact with him in the hospital and was looking forward to him going home to his loved ones; so I was shocked to receive the news today.
I offer my sincerest condolences to his family, including his brother who is a member of our extended family in the Ministry of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport.”
