CARICOM heads meet to tackle crime
Antigua’s Prime Minister, Baldwin Spencer said CARICOM heads of government are very serious about tackling widespread criminal activity in the region.
He said the leaders are hoping to decide on a set of proposals to effectively fight crime at this weekend\'s special summit in Port of Spain, Trinidad.
Mr. Spencer said lack of resources remains a major hurdle.
He said efforts to patrol Caribbean waters has proven difficult as a strategy to reduce crime linked to drug trafficking, gun smuggling and related illegal activity.
