Rail­way Cor­po­ra­tion serves no­tice on squat­ters

Jamaica Gleaner - - INTERNATIONAL NEWS -

THE JA­MAICA Rail­way Cor­po­ra­tion (JRC) is ad­vis­ing the pub­lic that only staff mem­bers are au­tho­rised to con­duct busi­ness re­lat­ing to let­ting or leas­ing of land, col­lec­tion of rental or any other fi­nan­cial ac­tiv­ity in re­la­tion to is prop­er­ties.

In ad­di­tion, the com­pany also wants the pub­lic to know that sale of any of its land can only be au­tho­rised or ap­proved at the min­is­te­rial level.

In a re­cent press ad­ver­tise­ment, the JRC ap­pealed to per­sons who may have un­der­taken any busi­ness deals with any­one other than one of its au­tho­rised agents to con­tact its of­fice at 142 Barry Street, Kingston, by call­ing 9226433/922-7349 from Mon­dayThurs­day be­tween the hours of 8:30-4:30; on Fri­day from 8:303:30 pm. They may also write to: Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer, Ja­maica Rail­way Cor­po­ra­tion, 142 Barry Street, PO Box 489, Kingston, or send an email to gen­eral­man­ager­jrc@cw­ja­maica.com Oc­cu­pants of JRC prop­er­ties in St James who do not have a lease ar­range­ment with the com­pany are ad­vised to con­tact the of­fice within 30 days to reg­u­larise their sit­u­a­tion. Fail­ure to do so will re­sult in the com­pany tak­ing the “req­ui­site ac­tion to re­cover its prop­erty”, the JRC ad­vised in the press ad­ver­tise­ment.

“We do have var­i­ous leases; we do have a sub­stan­tial port­fo­lio of ten­ants ...but we also have to fight the other as­pects, which is the unau­tho­rised oc­cu­pants, so if you are not le­git­i­mate or for­mal, use this as an op­por­tu­nity to get for­mal be­cause in the pri­vati­sa­tion process, that is part and parcel of what needs to be done,” Fitzroy Wil­liams, JRC gen­eral man­ager, said. Mean­while, he told The

Gleaner that the com­pany was in­ves­ti­gat­ing al­le­ga­tions that some per­sons may have been con­duct­ing busi­ness pur­port­edly on be­half of the JRC with­out its con­sent or knowl­edge. It was for this rea­son that it put out the ad­ver­tise­ment – in or­der to alert and pro­tect the pub­lic.
