Courts to decide on molasses issue dumping


Share post:

THE COURTS will have to decide.

This was the statement made by acting chief environmental health officer, Desmond King yesterday following reports by residents of St Stephen’s Hill that the covered molasses was now seeping through the soil as indicated in Tuesday’s edition of the DAILY NATION.

“I visited up there today (yesterday) and noticed some heavy equipment on the ground pushing stuff where the molasses is seeping through the ground. There was a lingering scent, but no flies were seen. When I asked a few residents if flies were an issue, they indicated it was not,” he said.

He said the case against Troy Williams, the man accused of illegally dumping the molasses, was scheduled to begin last Friday but had been postponed, due to Williams’ illness. (RA)
