dc.description.abstractThis report highlights the cleanup operations in Antigua, one week after hurricane Luis. As policyholders put in claims for damages, the issue of reinsurance comes up again. Antigua's Prime Minister Lester Bird states that CARICOM needed to look quickly at the issue of regional reinsurance. Geoffrey Jennings-Clark, Executive Secretary of the Insurance Council of St. Lucia comments that there is a need for a simplified building code and governments should encourage sensible construction practices. In the aftermath of hurricane Luis, St. Martin is seeking to deport illegal Haitian immigrants. The Guatemalan Army is strengthening security along the demarcation line between Guatemala and Belize, after reports of alleged incursion by Belizean soldiers. Political analysts describe the comments made as pure rhetoric and suspect that the territorial dispute is being manipulated since Guatemala is facing a general elections in two months time. Belize's Foreign Minister Dean Barrow comments that the situation is being closely monitored and hopes that professionalism will prevail. In Trinidad and Tobago, Prime Minister Patrick Manning denies knowledge of a death squad in the police service. In Jamaica, after introducing courts at night, a major problem hampering the general efficient running of the courts is public transportation.en_US
