Bunting denies involvement in Vaz's US visa issue

 
 
Peter Bunting, a former Minister of  National Security, has denied accusations that he was involved in the revocation a United States visa granted to Energy Minister Daryl Vaz.
 
Mr Bunting, in a statement Tuesday night, stressed the revocation of  US visas falls solely within the purview of  the American Government.
 
He said during his tenure as Minister of  National Security all of  his meetings with representatives of  the US Embassy in Jamaica or the US State Department were official engagements, and solely concerned issues of  national security and the safety of  the Jamaican public. 
 
Mr. Bunting said other matters were not pursued during the meetings.
 
He urged Prime Minister Andrew Holness and Foreign Affairs Minister Kamina Johnson Smith to use their offices to engage directly with the State Department regarding Mr. Vaz's visa revocation.
 
Mr. Bunting said this would address matters which have been raised in the public domain.
