From: Max Blanchet <MaxBlanchet@worldnet.att.net>

Ex-St Lucia PM says Haiti has missed the boat

Castries, St. Lucia, CANA - Former St. Lucia Prime Minister
Sir John Compton this week said that Haiti has squandered
another opportunity to join the international community.

Sir John, who has headed two fact-finding missions to Haiti
to examine the conduct of recent elections, says he is
disappointed and despondent with the situation in
the country.

"This is very unfortunate because Haiti is a country that
needs help, as it has a very unfortunate history, one of
oppression, discrimination, and isolation by the international
community," he told reporters.
