dc.description.abstract In this report a former Turks and Caicos Chief Minister, Norman Saunders, who served a term in prison for a drug-related offence, has returned to Parliament following a general election. Mr. Saunders was interviewed on his recent comeback, the issue of contention about the barring from office anyone who has gone to jail and his future political hopes. In Antigua, there was a big response to the Opposition's call for a general strike protesting government's new tax package. The people on the streets of St. John's expressed their views on this issue. The Antigua and Barbuda Chamber of Commerce and Industry President Carl Roberts, was asked whether the business sector supported the strike action and what the Chamber could do to bring about dialogue between government and the many forces that oppose the tax package. Meanwhile, in Trinidad and Tobago the Jamaat al Muslimeen has emerged in the role of a security force providing muscles for individuals and organizations. Tony Fraser reports that the Muslimeen has been hired to intervene in the dispute between two warring factions of the Trinidad Island-Wide Cane Farmers Association. In New Zealand, the West Indies cricket team is trying to cope with recurring back problems caused by short beds and long flights. The tall West Indies fast bowlers are mostly affected and it is hoped that longer beds will improve their bowling performance. en_US
