Trinidad & Tobago: Rights of the accused

Taran Rampersad weighs in on the controversy surrounding the posting on the internet of a photo of a minor accused of the murder of a six-year old boy in Trinidad. “This is an interesting chapter for Trinidad and Tobago as it finds it's way toward developed nation status, coming to terms with the Internet and the new media,” writes Taran. “The lessons of Sean Luke and the associated case may well be the fire that tempers legislative changes as related to the media, to the internet, Trinidad and Tobago society and ultimately, a part of Global Society.”
