Dismissing screenshots of WhatsApp conversations – purportedly involving Opposition Leader Mark Golding – as fake, the People’s National Party today (May 13) said it has reported the matter to the Cybercrimes Unit of the Jamaica Constabulary Force.

“The Party wishes to publicly denounce this desperate and defamatory act which has been concocted to divert the public’s attention from the Government’s incompetent handling of the wage negotiations with the various public sector groups,” the PNP said in a statement.


The party claimed it was aware that representatives of the Jamaica Labour Party had been “circulating these red herrings”, and asked that “they cease this behaviour and make a suitable public apology”.

Without directly addressing the content of the WhatsApp messages, the PNP added: “The PNP stands by its position that the Government has been arrogant and highhanded in its communication and handling of the negotiations with the public sector groupings. We urge the Government to rethink their approach and work with the unions to ensure that civil servants are justly compensated for their invaluable service to our nation.”
