dc.description.abstract In a statement in parliament Russell Huggins - Minister of National Security Trinidad and Tobago) denies allegations made by Scotland Yard that a drug cartel exists in the Trinidad and Tobago Police Force. He stated that that there was no real evidence to support these allegations - correspondent Tony Fraser reports to anchor Debbie Ransome. Death row inmates in Jamaica have called off a hunger strike protest over a change in visiting hours which prevents them from having visitors after 11:00 a.m. each day. It is speculated that the protest action which was staged for two days attracted international attention and media hype over this restriction causing the prison authorities to rescind the restriction order – correspondent Gary Allen reports. The Suriname’s economy seems to be plunging into virtual chaos as separate exchange rates are being developed for various powerful sectors, and the population is faced with near inflation, with petrol prices rising to 4 times overnight. The black market today hit a new unprecedented high of 40 guilders to 1 USD. Anchor Debbie Ransome interviews Professor and Head of the Department of Economics at Suriname University on his assessment of the economy. Haiti’s military commander - General Raoul Cédras seems set to continue blocking attempts at a political solution. He has been reported to have said that the military remains opposed to the return of exiled President Jean Bertrand Aristide, correspondent Michael Norton reports that General Cédras appears to be trying to appease both the army and Haiti’s United Nations Special Envoy - Dante Caputo. In an interview, General Cédras stated that there was no formal agreement for the return of Aristide - Debbie Ransome reports. A report conducted by the US State Department claims that the level of political violence in Haiti has declined last year (1992). However, the compile has admitted that is difficult verify how many political killings had taken place, because few were investigated by the de facto government. The integrity of Commonwealth Elections Observer Missions is coming under close scrutiny – this largely results from recent elections in Kenya monitored by a commonwealth team led by former Trinidad High Court Judge Telfer Georges. A controversy developed centering on the appointment and conduct of the Chairman of Kenya’s Elections Commission – Richard Chesoni who was accused who was accused of being in favour of the ruling party. Justice Telfer Georges expresses his views about the independence of the elections commission under Mr. Chesoni. en_US
