Mike Henry Off to African Summit in Libya


Transport and Works Minister, Hon. Mike Henry, is currently attending the African Union Summit in Tripoli, Libya.
Mr. Henry will participate in Caribbean Community (CARICOM)-Libyan bilateral discussions and other broad regional and global agenda items during the summit, which runs July1-3.
He will be representing Prime Minister the Hon. Bruce Golding, and is likely to have direct discussions with Libyan leader, Muammar Gaddafi. Supporting him will be Counsellor at the Jamaican High Commission in London, England, John Clarke.
Mr. Henry holds longstanding African interests, including his relentless crusade for reparation from Europe for the atrocities of the trans-Atlantic slave trade from Africa to the Caribbean and the Americas. The reparation issue has drawn much interest in Europe over recent years, including some apologies and acknowledgements by European Governments, among them Italy, which, last August, signed a treaty to pay
