TVJ News: Aviation Authority Breaks its Silence – MIDDAY NEWS April 11 2019


good afternoon it’s Thursday April 11
I’m Herman green with your midday news special welcome if you’re watching
online at one spot Mediacom the Jamaica’s Civil Aviation Authority JC a
a has broken its silence regarding the damning findings on the November 10 2016
plane crash in Greenwich town sent Andrew it’s response comes as the
operator of the 18-year old Korean aviation training center captain Errol
Stewart raised questions about the J CIA’s operation the probe conducted by
the J CAA and the us-based National Transportation Safety Board uncovered
several major safety breaches concerning the ill-fated aircraft and by its
operator the Caribbean aviation training center shortcomings were also found on
the part of the JC AAA which has oversight responsibility for the local
airspace speaking at a press conference this morning director-general of a JC a
a nari Williams Singh sought to address statements made by captain Errol Stewart
one of the issues which was pointed out by captain Stewart is that the JC a a
was conflicted since they were carrying out an investigation against itself
however mr. William Singh says that was not so the NTSB of the United States the
NTSB is an accredited party to the investigation as the aircraft involved
in the accident was manufactured and registered in the United States the
aircraft engine manufacturer lycoming and the aircraft manufacturer Cessna
were technical advisors to the NTSB it is therefore disingenuous to suggest
that the GC a was investigating itself given the participation of the
aforementioned third parties the JCA director-general also sought to clarify
the issues surrounding the ring gear which was pictured in the plane crash
report the photo appearing in the official report is that of the Indian
manufacturers like Cummings reference starter ring gear not the actual part
taken from the aircraft the Indian manufacturer attached the reference
starter ring gear to the engine crankshaft during the investigations to
determine measurements and specifications from those measurements
it was determined by the engine manufacturer that the engines internal
timing was incorrect 24 hours after the murder suicide of two correctional
officers on Walton Park Road in Kingston and another attempted murder suicide
this morning this time the crime scene is on McIntosh Drive in sin and row
reports from the half a tree police station are that early Thursday morning
a man known only as 40 had an altercation with his common-law wife at
their home during which he used the stone to inflict wounds to her head the
police were alerted and the woman was found unconscious lying in a pool of
blood she was taken to a hospital where she is admitted in serious condition the
man is then believed or rather the man is believed to have then took his own
life the public is being reminded that the Jamaica Constabulary Force offers
counseling services through its domestic violence intervention centers located at
the constant spring and Mathilda’s corner police stations both in st.
Andrew the Jamaica Federation’s of Corrections says it will be seeking to
renegotiate the budgetary allocation from the security ministry to address
psychiatric assistance for its members the call comes in the wake of when the
morning’s tragic murder suicide involving two correctional officers
federation chairman Arlington Turner says based on the limited financial
allocation this year he believes the issue has not been given the attention
it needs two million dollars increased from a 68
million dollar per annum for wellness for our officers and we had asked for at
least 12 million dollars because what we realized is happening
our officers needs the attention in the stressful environment in which we
operate this might seem like a huge sum but is not he says currently nothing is
in place to help the officers following yesterday’s killings the chaplains in
unit visited the victims co-workers he says that is not enough so he will be
taken the matter to the ministry again we are written just some time ago to ask
to meet with the minister to address some issues I think this is no a
priority issue that we need to address so this is one of the things high on the
agenda that we need to sit at the table and address because it’s an highly
stressed job and our offices are being affected Minister with responsibility
for the Education Ministry Carson muda is calling on schools to be more
disciplined in sticking to their budgets mr. Samaras says the days of diverting
funds intended for one project to another must end ki-moon Witter reports
at over 107 billion dollars the Education Ministry manages the second
biggest budget allocation in central government and with that a call from the
man now overseeing that portfolio calls amudha
for schools to spend money on the intended project when we allocate funds
for certain types of expenditure in the schools those funds are to be used for
the purpose for which a request was made of the Ministry of Finance for them mr.
tsuda who was speaking at the opening of a new science lab at the st. Catherine
High School on Wednesday said if funds are needed for other projects a special
request for new funds must be made but the most important thing is to adhere to
the plan of action and to use the resources appropriately to
make sure that what we plan to do we actually adhere to it and get it done
he said the boards and principals of schools must be made to understand that
education and the Ministry of Education must be run in a businesslike way avoid
waste whist is like a pickpocket it deprives us of valuable resources that
can be put into productive areas that can go to the benefit of educating the
children ki-moon wit our TV J news meanwhile the government is seeking to
review the school feeding program that’s the word from Minister with
responsibility for the Education Ministry careless amudha mr. Samaras
says he directed the review to happen because he wants to ensure students are
not being asked to learn while hungry the teaching staff told me that many of
the students by nine o’clock you can see a difference in their attitude and I
said why said because you’re hungry they need nutrition in order to learn and
that is why in the ministry we have with dr. McLean we have spoken about the
question of revisiting the school feeding program with a view to
determining exactly what the cost is to ensure and guarantee that every child
attending school can do so with comfort knowing that they are receiving
appropriate nutrition in order to observe what is being taught well Damien
