The following is in response to Bunny Wailer being assaulted and thrown out of Bob Marley Museum.
STATEMENT FROM THE BOB MARLEY MUSEUM REGARDING EVENTS ON SEPTEMBER 30, 2015.
The Bob Marley Museum wishes to advise, that on September 30th 2015, the world renown establishment was honored to host the state visit of Japan’s Prime Minister Mr. Shinzo Abe and our Prime Minister the Most Honorable Portia Simpson Miller.
As requested by the state’s security officials, at 11:15 am the Bob Marley Museum advised all patrons and staff that all tours of the property would be suspended for the remainder of the day, to facilitate a security sweep in anticipation of both Prime Ministers’ visit.
It came to the attention of the museum staff, that two guests to the Museum, one of whom was Neville Livingston (aka Bunny Wailer), had made their way to the back of the museum and belligerently resisted the request of the security officers who asked all guests to make their way to the front of the museum as the Police force and Jamaica Defense Force were on their way to secure the property in advance. Neville Livingston has been issuing threats and acting adversely to the Marley family for many years. In this confrontation, the security guard was injured by Livingston.
The injured guard filed a report to the Matilda’s Corner Police Station and the matter is being investigated.
