dc.description.abstract The Windward Islands Banana Development Exporting Company (WIBDECO) in partnership with Fyffes has submitted a bid for the Geest banana division. In St. Lucia, Tourism Minister Romanos Lansico sees himself as the candidate to succeed Prime Minister John Compton. However, there are growing reports that Dr. Vaughan Lewis may be the man to replace Mr. Compton. Britain and France are pushing for an European plan to tackle drug trafficking in the Caribbean. Britain's new asylum and immigration bill is receiving flack from organizations that feels the proposed legislation discriminates against the black community. MP Bernie Grant comments on the hardships ahead for refugees and asylum seekers. Meanwhile, Guadeloupeans continue strike action in solidarity with their counterparts in France. In Grenada, a commission of inquiry led by Dominican Justice Ashton Piper is formed to look into the part privatization of the solar electricity company (GRENLEC) and the use of a capital fund. In Guyana, questions surround the report on the environmental and economic effects of the Omai cyanide spill. Next, gunmen opened fire on the home of Leon Jeune, a leading presidential candidate in Haiti. Cuban President Fidel Castro called for Japan's support for achieving an end to the US economic sanctions against Cuba. en_US
