"I am and I have been for a considerable time appalled at the number of killings that are taking place, courtesy of the hands of persons who are paid by the state and who are using weapons provided by the state," Justice Panton said Monday at the launch of Caribbean Rights, a publication by the Independent Jamaica Council on Human Rights.....
Meanwhile, Dr. Lloyd Barnett, editor of Caribbean Rights, said it was important to have a Caribbean journal on human rights because the nations within the region are faced with similar challenges.
The journal includes articles relating to the Caribbean Court of Justice and its first important case, among other things.
