NASSAU, Bahamas, Jun 21– Caribbean Community (CARICOM) foreign ministers are to visit the Turks and Caicos Islands on a fact finding mission next week.
Bahamas Foreign Affairs Minister Fred Mitchell is chairing the grouping that includes his colleagues from Jamaica, St. Kitts and Nevis and Haiti.
A brief statement issued here said that the ministers “have embarked on a fact-finding mission about the status of the Turks and Caicos Islands” but gave no further details.
But the communiqué issued at the end of the CARICOM Foreign Affairs Ministers meeting (COFCOR) in Trinidad last month, noted that the Council had been “updated on the situation in the Turks and Caicos Islands following the Island’s democratic elections held in November 2012 and underscored CARICOM’s commitment to supporting that Associate Member’s democratic tradition”.
London in August 2009 resumed daily administration of the affairs of this British Overseas Territory, disbanded the locally elected government and suspended the legislature after a Commission of Inquiry said it found widespread corruption under the administration of former premier Michael Misick.
The former premier, who resigned in March 2009, after the commission made its findings public, is to go on trial later this year. (2013)
