JAMAICA---Barbados plans to abolish its manda-
tory death penalty for murder convictions---a penalty
that the government has bypassed for three decades.
No killer has been executed in Barbados since 1984
despite the law, but Attorney General Adriel Brathwaite
told reporters Tuesday that the automatic penalty
should be formally dropped.
He said the government is preparing legislation to
remove the clause that prevents judges from taking
into account the circumstances in which a slaying
was committed or other mitigating factors.
Brathwaite expects there will be considerable public
opposition to the change because many people in
Barbados "feel that once you commit murder you
should forfeit your lives."
"I know it will be a battle but...I believe that it
is a better path for the country," he said, adding that
the government will engage islanders in a public dia-
logue on the issue.
Human rights groups such as Amnesty International
have long criticised the mandatory death penalty as
too harsh and in breach of international law. There
is a similar mandatory death penalty law for convicted
murderers in T&T, which has not executed anyone
Even though capital punishment is on the books
in a number of English-speaking Caribbean islands
and polls indicate strong support for the death penalty,
executions are rare in the region.
The last one was in St Kitts & Nevis in 2008, when
Charles Laplace was hanged for murdering his wife.
That was the region s first outside Cuba since an
execution in the Bahamas in 2000.
Politicians of former British colonies have long
complained that the London-based Privy Council,
the highest appeals court for many Caribbean
countries, has stymied their attempts to execute
murderers. The regional Caribbean Court of Justice
is the highest court of appeals for Barbados, Belize
Capital punishment has been abolished for decades
in the Spanish-speaking Dominican Republic, and
the death penalty is not used in French, British and
Dutch dependencies in the Caribbean.
Religious and cultural opposition to the death
penalty holds sway in the US Caribbean island of
Puerto Rico, where jurors often reject federal pros-
ecutors request for capital punishment. (AP)
CARACAS---Venezuela s top court has sentenced
an opposition mayor to a year in jail for failing to
crack down on anti-government protests that are
entering their third month.
The Supreme Court issued the sentence of San
Cristobal mayor Daniel Ceballos on Tuesday night.
The court ruled he disobeyed an order to remove
barricades set up by protesters. Ceballos has been
openly critical of president Nicolas Maduro and sup-
portive of the protesters cause.
The mountain city near the Colombian border has
been among the most restive in the country.
Authorities have targeted opposition leaders nation-
wide in recent weeks. The Supreme Court sent another
opposition mayor to jail last week, and on Monday,
parliament stripped opposition deputy Maria Corina
Machado of her seat. (AP)
