dc.description.abstract In Haiti, Madame Ertha Pascal-Trouillot, has been arrested and jailed for complicity. Reports are given on this arrest by Michael Norton and Hugh Crosskill. Desmond Hoyte, President of Guyana has brushed aside the Opposition demands for a complete overhaul of the country’s Electoral Commission Chairman, Sir Harold Bollers. The British Virgin Islands (BVI) government has reacted angrily to a decision made by the British government to abolish the death penalty in the Caribbean dependencies and to replace it with life imprisonment. Nigel Ben, former British WBA middleweight champion with Barbadian parents, has had a successful boxing match win and he looks towards achieving another title in the future. en_US
