‘Miss Milli’ Dies Before Attaining Justice

22 Jun

The mothcr of Janice Allen, a 13-year old who was killed by the police in 2000 and who became the face of extra-judicial killings in Jamaica,  died on Sunday at age 53. Her pursuit of justice for her daughter brought the case international attention and continued until the end.

Her legal battle, while protracted, frustrating, and littered with repeated injustices, set a precedent in fighting police abuse in Jamaica.
