Image Of The Week: The PM And The Press – Part 1


This week’s image comes from the Friday Gleaner story entitled Press, PM Face Off Again.

In the photo, TVJ reporter Vashan Brown is being shoved away from Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller by her security personnel, after she refused to answer his questions about Richard Azan and her trips to Japan while at the official dedication of a US$2-million water-and-sewer project in Rose Town on Thursday, November 21.

This is the not the first time that the Prime Minister has refused to answer impromptu questions from the press, prompting concerned outcries from members of the local media.
