government does not support
devaluing the Caribbean island s
currency and says it is determined
to maintain its fixed exchange
rate with the US dollar.
The Barbados dollar has been
pegged two-to-one to the US dol-
lar since the 1970s. But some ana-
lysts believe the currency of the
economically struggling country
should be devalued.
Moody s Investors Service has
downgraded the island s govern-
ment bond rating by two notches
from Ba3 to B3, citing "anemic
economic growth" and "limited
prospects for improvement."
The Barbados Ministry of
Finance conceded that "a number
of experts, including some in the
ratings agencies," believe devalu-

to the current exchange rate and

done to protect" the Barbados

The Foundation for Politics and
Leadership (FPL) is calling for a com-
plete overhaul of the justice system
in the wake of the murder of special
state prosecutor Dana Seetahal, SC.
To this end, the organisation will be
working along with the Sir Arthur Lewis
Institute of Social and Economic Studies
(Salies) of the University of the West
Indies, St Augustine campus, to host
a Dana Saroop Seetahal Symposium:
Re-Engineering the Criminal Justice
The one-day symposium will be held
the Noor Hassanali Auditorium, UWI,
St Augustine. The symposium is being
held with the blessings of Seetahal s
family. That same day, relatives and
friends of Seetahal, commemorate 40th
days since her killing at a church service
at the Aramalaya Presbyterian Church,
A month after Seetahal was shot
dead, the police are yet to make an
arrest. Seetahal, 58, was killed by gun-
men on May 4, while driving along
Hamilton Holder Street, Woodbrook.
She had just left the Ma Pau casino
along Ariapita Avenue, and was heading
to her home at One Woodbrook Place.
Near the Woodbrook Youth Facility,
Seetahal s attackers blocked her car and
Since then, there have been numer-
ous calls throughout the media, both
by the public and officials, for a com-
plete review and revision of the criminal
Dr Omar Ali wrote: "Re-Engineering
the Criminal Justice System is a matter
which requires urgent action given both
the uproar in the nation with respect
to Dana s and other brutal murders
and the attack on the criminal justice
system. This initiative is taken in honour
of Dana Seetahal s passing and in recog-
nition of her own efforts in this regard.
Her family has given their full support
