CARICOM to Hold Meeting to Deal with Free Movement in the Caribbean
CARICOM will next week hold a number of meetings to deal with the issue of free movement of persons and contingent rights in the CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME). These areas have always been a major concern to some member states.
The meetings will be held from April 4 to 7. With CARICOM cut back on funds these meetings are being made possible through the European Union under the 9th European Development Fund.
The sessions will focus on the follow up of several mandates received from the Conference of Heads of Government. Talks will include the decisions relating to the full implementation of the free movement and its migration impact on Member States.
Officials will meet in Guyana next week to discuss and decide on the recommendations that will be submitted to the Conference of Heads of Government for approval.
Just recently a Jamaican woman claimed that she was finger raped by Barbados immigration authorities after being denied entry to into that country. The Jamaican authorities have since decided to take the matter to the international human rights court.
