Flow: We’ve honoured all requests in gang case

Published:Thursday | December 2, 2021 | 12:12 AM

One of the country’s two main telecommunications companies has said it has honoured requests by the Jamaica Constabulary Force in relation to the investigation of the Clansman-One Don Gang.

“We have, to date, fulfilled all requests received,” said Flow Jamaica in a brief statement issued Wednesday evening.

However, the company did not say when.

Flow Jamaica said it treats all requests by the security forces “urgently” even as it noted that the process under the Telecommunications Act and the Interception of Communications Act is governed by established protocols.

Telephone calls to spokespersons of Digicel Jamaica, the other major telecoms firm, have gone unanswered.

On Monday, the chief investigator in the case disclosed during the gang trial that the police had challenges obtaining telephone data from the service providers and that the constabulary force is still awaiting the requested information.

According to the police detective, the telephone records relate to the phones that were collected from several of the 33 defendants and the three cell phones that were used by a former gang member to secretly record the conversations of alleged ex-cronies, including reputed leader Andre ‘Blackman’ Bryan.
