The St Ann young man who made distasteful remarks about Jamaica’s Prime Minister, Andrew Holness after the change in curfew hours were made is now taking steps to sue both the police and the Government. His attorney Charles Ganga-Singh made the disclosure recently to the Jamaica Gleaner.

The suite will be filed for invasion of privacy and the malicious way he was taken into custody, among other things.


Shaquille Oneil Higgins was taken into custody at the Moneague Police Station in St Ann, on Tuesday and his family contacted the lawyer as they seek representation for him.

After the police told Higgins to apologize to the PM, he did and the apology was video-taped and circulated widely.

The police also reported that Higgins was suspected in a larceny case and the comments he made in the remarks led them to his home.

The fact that Shaquille Oneil had to spend time in custody and he felt intimidated by the police caused him to be taking steps to pursue justice.
