GEORGETOWN – Secretary General of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), Irwin La Rocque, says problems related to the freedom of movement across the region have undermined the credibility of the regional body.

La Rocque, in an address at the University of Guyana’s graduation ceremony on the weekend acknowledged the difficulties facing Caribbean nationals. He added that the region must remember the outcome of the case involving Jamaican Shanique Myrie and stated that the training of the relevant points of entry officials is continuing in order to minimize the difficulties.

Another matter of concern highlighted by the Secretary General was that of the admission of non-University of the West Indies graduates to the law schools of the Council of Legal Education. (CMC)
