dc.description.abstractJagernath Luchmon, Suriname’s National Assembly Chairman is satisfied with the outcome of his meeting with Ronnie Brunswick, the leader of the jungle commando in which they discussed a new framework for peace talks. Secondly, the government of Puerto Rico intends to sell the state owned telephone company for an estimated two thousand million dollars in order to improve the educational system and other public services. Following the Financial News, the High Court in London rules that the British government broke the law concerning some of the procedures adopted to deport people from Britain. St. Vincentian-born Julius Alexander and Nigerian-born Shamusideen Oladehinde brought the case to the English High Court. The report concludes with the return to Haiti of Antoine Izmery, the exiled Haitian businessman who intends to continue his strong criticism of the military government of General Prosper Avril.en_US
