dc.description.abstract Arthur Helton of the New York based lawyers committee for Human Rights discuss the evidence on the allegations of persecution and brutaility of Haitian refugees, which other U.S. officials deny. The U.S. also defends their criticism of the British for their repatriation of Vietnamese refugees from Hong Kong, while the U.S. also defends its decision to relax the trade embargo against Haiti's military backed regime. Contrasting U.S. opinions are aired on the Haitian political situation, including disappointment at the silence of CARICOM countries on the treatment of Haitian refugees. There are also reports on the cholera bacteria found in Trinidad and discussions on the possibility of an outbreak within the Caribean and the preparedness of the region for such an outbreak. en_US
