KINGSTON, Jamaica – Prime Minster Andrew Holness on Tuesday ordered an audit as well as the capping of mobile phone bills of all Government ministers after news broke that Minister of Finance and Public Service, Audley Shaw, racked up telephones charges amounting to more than $8.3 million over a one-year period.

On that same day, Shaw disclosed that ignorance of data charges ran up his bill and that he paid $2.568 million out of pocket and secured a discount of $1.019 million from his cellphone service provider.

Meanwhile, a brazen attack on Ruthven Road in St Andrew, that afternoon, left 45-year-old businessman Richard Ramdial dead after the vehicle which he was driving was shot up.

In sport, after registering their first win of the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup against Curacao, the Reggae Boyz played to a nil all draw against Mexico Thursday evening.
