Promoter, selector fined for breaching Noise Abatement Act

Two men were fined for breaching the Noise Abatement Act when they appeared in the St Catherine Parish Court.

Selector Ryan Bennett and Rose Irving, the promoter of the event, were each fined $15,000 or 30 days’ imprisonment.

Irving explained to parish Judge Grace Henry-McKenzie that it was just a component set and never knew that a permit was needed.

However, his plead of ignorance wasn’t enough to get him out of the jam.
