Abstract
Trinidad and Tobago's Attorney General Keith Sobion has rejected comments made by the human rights group, Caribbean Rights which accused him of contempt of court in last year's hanging of death row prisoner Glenn Ashby. Trinidad and Tobago's Prime Minister Patrick Manning has called that country's Public Service Commissions colonial and stated that they have outlived their usefulness. John La Guerre, a UWI lecturer comments on the Prime Minister's statements. American President Bill Clinton is scheduled to visit Haiti and attend a ceremony to mark the handing over of peacekeeping operations from the US to the UN. Washington reports that several people have been arrested in connection with the assassination of Madame Durocher Bertin in Haiti. The future of Britain on the international scene was the topic of a major conference in London. Former Commonwealth Secretary-General Sir Shridath Ramphal comments on how Britain's reputation is viewed from the outside. The interests of Europe's peripheral islands, including those in the French Caribbean, are to be more strongly defended with a new international cooperation agreement. A new type of television camera will be making its debut as the West Indies cricket team faces Australia during the first test in Barbados.
