PM urged church to

be advocate against crime and violence

Prime Minister Andrew Holness has urged the Church to be advocates in the fight against crime and violence.

"Leaders you have to bring it to your pulpit. We can't allow much of what is happening to be covered up, particularly the abuse that is happening within families," Holness said.

Prime Minister Holness made the comments on Wednesday while addressing the congregation at the 13th annual 'Heal the Family Heal the Nation' gathering at the National Arena staged by the Power of Faith Ministries.
