CPSA ASKS PM ROWLEY TO REPEAL SEDITION ACT

The Caribbean Public Services Association is the latest international labour organization to ask the Prime Minister to repeal the Sedition Act.

In a letter to Attorney General Faris Al Rawi, the Association expressed its concern regarding the recent arrest and charge of Public Service Association President, Watson Duke.

Duke was arrested in August for a statement he made last November in contravention of section 1 (b) of the Sedition Act.

In its correspondence, the CPSA says views the law as an oppressive tool of British colonialism and has no place in any democracy or modern Caribbean.

The CPSA also asked the Government to revisit the matter against Duke and discontinue its prosecution of him.
