Used Car Dealers Association to act as mediator for gov't, contractor in police vehicle saga

The Jamaica Used Car Dealers Association has signalled its intention to mediate between O'Brien's International Car Sales and Rental and the Government, which is set to take action against the company for the non-delivery of used vehicles to the Jamaica Constabulary Force.
 
The Association has declared that it will provide assistance in resolving the matter.
 
Speaking Thursday morning on RJR's call-in programme, Hotline, President of the Jamaica Used Car Dealers Association Lynvale Hamilton stated that, following discussions, there will be a meeting on the matter.
 
"We are trying to have some negotiations and there seems to be some way that is being cleared for that to happen," Mr. Hamilton told Hotline host Emily Shields. 
 
He said he was not yet in a position to speak on the matter but would do so as soon as he was given the go-ahead. 
 
Earlier this week, the Association came to the defence of O'Brien's.
 
O'Brien's was contracted to provide 200 used cars to the JCF but has so far only delivered 30 vehicles. It is struggling to clear another 66 on the wharf.
 
The company's request for a waiver of the Special Consumption Tax and General Consumption Tax required to clear the vehicles has been rejected by the Government.
