Charge d affaires of the EU Delegation to T&T
commented: "T&T is by no means the only country
with human rights challenges, but it is important
to discuss them so that they can be resolved. The

Law, St Augustine, with funding from the European
Union. The grant is being used to strengthen and

Judiciary and the Parliament.
Titled, Diagnosing Human Rights: A Road Map
for Development, the symposium will be held at
the Noor Hassanali Auditorium and begins at 5 pm.
Members of the public are invited to attend. Admis-
