PNP offers $500,000 reward for information on Bloomfield's murder
A reward of $500,000 is being offered by the People’s National Party (PNP) to anyone with information that leads to the arrest of those responsible for the murder of East Portland Member of Parliament Dr Lynvale George Bloomfield.
The reward is being offered through Crime Stop.
Bloomfield’s body was found with multiple stab wounds inside his house in Passley Gardens, Portland, on Saturday. PNP General Secretary Julian Robinson called for anyone with information to come forward to so as to help the police's investigation.
Robinson said in addition to the reward the party will also be having a series of events to honour Bloomfield’s service to his community, constituency and the nation.
He said the MP’s murder “is one in a series of wanton acts of criminality across the country that leaves too many individuals and families in mourning and robs the nation of its best potential”.
“The security of every Jamaican regardless of their status must be assured by the Government. It is particularly troubling when someone such as Dr Bloomfield, who was clearly an individual diligently serving his country and community, is slaughtered in this way,” Robinson said.
