KINGSTON---The London-based Privy Council
has granted leave to convicted hijacker Stephen
Fray, to appeal his 83-year jail term for the
attempted hijacking of a Canadian aircraft in
the western city of Montego Bay in 2009.
Fray s legal team is contending that medical
evidence of his mental disorder was rejected, and
the standard used to judge his mental condition
had been outdated.
They argued that a narrow approach was taken
in assessing his true mental state, and this error
resulted in the conviction.
Fray, 26, will be represented at the Privy Council,
the island s highest court, by UK-based attorneys,
but his local attorney, Jacqueline Samuels Brown,
said the case would have far reaching implica-
"The modern approach in relation to psychiatry
is to move away from the narrow concept of
insanity and the adverse perception and to use
the wider more inclusive concept of mental dis-
order and that is where the law has moved and
that is why I say it will have implications not just
for Fray but for the development of the jurispru-
dence in Jamaica and elsewhere," she said.
Fray was convicted in October 2009, on eight
counts for illegal possession of firearm, shooting
with intent, robbery with aggravation, assault at
common law and breaches of the Airport Act,
arising from the attempted hijacking.
Although sentenced to 83 years, Fray is to serve
20 years because the sentences are to run con-
Fray lost an appeal in Jamaica in 2011, to have
the sentence and conviction over-
However, Fray and his attorney
have maintained that he was men-
tally ill in April 2009, when he
attempted to hijack the Canjet flight
with 159 passengers and crew at the
Sangster International Airport. The
court was told that Fray managed to
breeze through security at Sangster
International Airport with a loaded
gun. He walked straight onto the
parked Canjet plane, which had just
arrived in Montego Bay from Halifax
and was about to carry on to Havana,
Convicted hijacker can
appeal 83-year jail term
Peter Bunting, the National Security Min-
ister of Jamaica, has urged rival gangs in the
community of Caanan Heights, Clarendon,
to bring an end to their hostilities.
A report yesterday by the Jamaica Gleaner
said the appeal comes as police statistics show
that there have been 10 reported murders in
the community since the start of the year.
This accounts for 20 per cent of the 50 mur-
ders reported across the entire parish.
Speaking during a tour of Caanan Heights,
Bunting called the numbers disgraceful and
unacceptable. He pleaded with the warring
factions to allow the children of Caanan
Heights to grow up without the sound of gun-
fire as their constant companion.
The security minister says if the community
cannot unite for change, its growth and devel-
opment will be stunted.
