Author: Whitehorne, Pat (anchor); Norton, Michael (correspondent); Ransome, Debbie (correspondent); Lequay, Alloy (interviewee); Manning, Patrick (interviewee); Gibbs, Lance (interviewee)
Description:
1. Headlines (00:00-00:40)
2. Two major recommendations are made in the Antiguan arms scandal inquiry. The inquiry investigates an arms smuggling deal in April 1989 in which Antigua was used as a transit point for an illegal shipment of Israeli arms bound for Colombia. The report recommends the banning of the Prime Minister’s son, Vere Bird Jr., from public office for life and the firing of army commander, Clyde Walker (00:41-01:39)
3. Roger Lafontant is disqualified from running in Haiti’s presidential elections for failing to produce a birth certificate. The decision is based on technical grounds rather than the law which prohibits former Duvalists from participating in elections until 1997. Michael Norton also reports that nine other candidates have been disqualified for failure to complete the candidacy requirements (01:40-06:58)
4. The main political parties in Trinidad and Tobago are not surprised by the results of the recent public opinion poll conducted by the St. Augustine Research Association (SARA). Both the ruling NAR and the opposition PNM parties concur that their own surveys have produced similar results. Debbie Ransome interviews Alloy Lequay, General Secretary of NAR, and Patrick Manning, leader of the PNM (06:59-10:12)
5. Lance Gibbs, Manager of the West Indies cricket team is interviewed by Pat Whitehorne in London. Mr. Gibbs, en route to Pakistan, discusses the adaptation of the team to the weather in Pakistan, the preparedness of the team, the threat of the Pakistani team and Imran Khan, the batting lineup of the West Indies and the role of the manager in the series (10:13-14:46)
