The Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture, the Honourable Olivia Grange, MP has made an appeal for anyone with information that can help the police with the case of 17 year old Khajeel Mais, who was shot dead following a road accident on the weekend, to come forward.

Minister Grange made the appeal while opening a Regional Meeting of the Inter-American Programme for the Prevention and Eradication of Commercial Sexual Exploitation, Illegal Trafficking and Trade in Children and Adolescents on July 07, 2011 at the Jamaica Conference Centre.

Minister Grange said the nation had a responsibility to ensure that justice is done.

"I want to use this opportunity to join the rest of the nation in condemning the attack on the teenager.  I urge the shooter to recognise what he has done and to do the right thing by coming forward.  And I call on anyone who knows anything to speak up.  We owe it to Khajeel, and we owe it to all our children to see that justice is done."
