Golding Tables Bill to Amend Intercepted Communications Act

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - June 16, 2011

Following the release of the Manatt Commission Report, portions of which focused on the Interception of Communications Act, Jamaican Prime Minister Bruce Golding has tabled a bill to amend the act in the House of Representatives. The amendment would provide that a warrant may authorize that intercepted communications be disclosed to a foreign government or the agency of such a government. According to the bill, however, information obtained through intercepted communications can only occur where a mutual agreement exists between Jamaica and the foreign state.
