FALMOUTH, Trelawny — Security Minister Dr Horace Chang says Prime Minister Andrew Holness is to give a timetable on Monday when other Jamaican ship workers are to be brought back home.
Speaking at a press conference at the Falmouth Cruise Ship Pier in Trelawny on Thursday, Dr Chang said a schedule is currently being worked on for the safe return of the crew members.
The prime minister will be able to announce the decision on all of them as we will be bringing the Jamaican on the ships home as early as possible,” Dr Chang assured.
And on Tuesday, as part of efforts by the Government to bring home Jamaican ship workers, 1,044 more of them arrived at the Falmouth Cruise Ship Pier on the Caribbean Cruise Line's Adventure of the Seas vessel.
On Thursday, Dr Chang argued that while the Government wants to bring home the workers, care must be taken not to overwhelm the island's health care system.
