dc.description.abstract In this report, Cuba pushes for a CARICOM Trade Office to be established in Havana. CARICOM Secretary-General Edwin Carrington indicated that CARICOM was reluctant to take up the offer at this time. Rosie Hayes questioned Mr. Carrington on whether the US embargo on Cuba contributed towards this decision. In Trinidad and Tobago, Tony Fraser reports on the ruling of High Court Judge Margot Warner to allow a 12 year old Muslim girl to wear her religious head covering (hijab) to a Catholic school. Holy Name Convent debarred Sumayyah Mohammed from attending classes while wearing a hijab. Journalist Philip Worme reports on whether Haitians and US peacekeepers would be able to police the country following the withdrawal of US troops. Hugh Crosskill reports that British Labor Party MP Bernie Grant has written to the Ministry of Defense to denounce plans to exclude Caribbean Head of States from the VE Day celebrations in May. Tony Baldry speaks on the potential of Puerto Rico to British business interests as they seek to broaden their investments in the Spanish-speaking Caribbean. en_US
