TOMMY COWAN AND TONY REBEL ARE NOW JUSTICES OF THE PEACE!

By Balford Henry—-

IMPRESARIO Tommy Cowan and entertainer Tony Rebel were among 52 people sworn in as Justices of the peace at the Sts Peter & Paul Church in St Andrew recently.

The group was sworn in by the Custos of St Andrew Marigold Harding. The guest speaker was Jamaica’s Contractor General Dirk Harrison.

At the end of the ceremony, which was attended by family, friends and well-wishers, both men entertained the audience.

“Basically, I looked at the chance to make a contribution to Jamaica, which has been so good to me, and decided I wanted to give something back,” Cowan told the Jamaica Observer.

Cowan, a former member of the 1967 festival-winning group, The Jamaicans, is an ordained minister of the gospel. He is also the promoter of Denbigh Gospel Extravaganza scheduled for Denbigh show ground in May Pen, on Sunday, August 4.

Tony Rebel, given name Patrick Barrett, is the promoter of the annual conscious show Rebel Salute. An established singjay, he is known for hit songs Jah Is by My Side, Fresh Vegetable, Sweet Jamaica, and Chatty Chatty.

In addition to the signing and stamping of official documents, justices of the peace are required to attend the court’s juvenile and petty sessions, attend spirit-licensing authority sessions, issue warrants and summonses, consider applications for bail, and witness the taking of caution statements.
