Police Commissioner wants wearing of masks banned from political meetings

Police Commissioner Dr. Carl Williams wants the Office of  the Political Ombudsman to include prohibitions against the wearing of  masks on motorcades as well as public meetings to the list of offences in the political code of  conduct.
   
Mr Williams has announced that he plans to speak with Ombudsman Donna Parchment Brown to have this provision included in the code of  conduct to be signed this week by aspirants in the February 25 general election.
   
The communication arm of  the Jamaica Constabulary Force said in a statement on Sunday night that some individuals are concealing their identities by wearing masks on motorcades and at political meetings and other public meetings.
   
It said, while there is no law against the practice, it arouses the suspicion of  the police.
   
The police are appealing to persons to desist from wearing masks at these events.
