dc.description.abstractThe president of Haiti’s Council of State says that the return of Roger Lafontant and Williams Regala has jeopardized the upcoming elections in November and recommends the arrest of these two former military leaders given their alleged record of torture and murder in the past. Secondly, over 40 Haitians drowned and 250 survived as they attempted to sail to the Bahamas as illegal immigrants. In the Dominican Republic, election results are still pending two months after the presidential elections and the instability of the country is exacerbated by a current shortage of diesel fuel on the island. Following the Financial News, St. Lucia’s Deputy Prime Minister held meetings with the British Department of Transport in London seeking to convince them of a need for a second air service out of the UK to St. Lucia. The report concludes with Stories of Caribbean Interest Appearing in the British Press.en_US
