KINGSTON, Jamaica (JIS) — Minister of Justice, Delroy Chuck, and Permanent Secretary in the Ministry, Carol Palmer, today signed a $50.7-million contract for the re-construction of the Kingston and St Andrew Family Court Attendance Centre.

The centre, which was destroyed by fire on December 30, 2015, will be located at the corner of East and Beeston streets in downtown Kingston.

The contract signing took place during the Ministry of Justice's Quarterly Press Briefing, held at the ministry on Constant Spring Road.

Palmer said that children who are dependent on the resocialisation services of the Kingston and St Andrew Family Court Attendance Centre have been displaced in their educational pursuits.

She expressed hope that the contractor, Contraxx Enterprise Limited, will deliver on their agreement to complete the centre by January 2019.
