As Chair of the Greater Caribbean for Life, an independent not-for profit organisation devoted to working towards the abolition of the death penalty in our region, I was invited to present a paper on the death penalty in the English-speaking Caribbean at a hearing of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights in Washington DC on  December 6. The President of the IACHR is Justice Margarette May Macaulay, from Jamaica.

Joining me was Kevin Miguel Rivera Medina, President, World Coalition Against the Death Penalty (WCADP) and Jessica Corredor Villamil, Programme Manager, WCADP.
