A new board of management has been appointed for the Clifton Boys' Home which was recently at the centre of child abuse allegations.
Archbishop of the West Indies and Bishop of Jamaica and The Cayman Islands Howard Gregory announced on Tuesday that retired educator Vincent Guthrie is the new chairman of the board.
Archbishop Gregory expressed regret at the negative publicity which the boys' home has received in recent months following allegations which are being investigated.
News emerged last month that three former employees of the boy's home had been charged following investigations triggered by reports earlier this year of physical abuse of wards at the facility. The three were charged on September 23.
The police allege that they physically abused eight boys aged 10 to 17 from March 2016 to March 2021.
In one instance a metal chair was reportedly used to hit a 17 year old boy.
