PM wants global agreement on deportees

Prime Minister, Allen Chastanet, has called for an international agreement on the issue of criminal deportees, asserting that the matter should be discussed at the level of the United nations.

He stated that he would do as much lobbying as he can on the matter, asserting that the discussion has already started.

Chastanet said that the United States is using the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) agreement to deport people to their countries of origin.

“I am pretty sure that when we signed the ICAO agreement it was not with that in mind,” the former Tourism and Civil Aviation Minister told reporters.

He said the intent was that if someone visited another country with incorrect documentation, the country of origin would be obligated to receive the person back.

“But the fact that somebody would go and spend in excess of thirty years in a country, make it a home, pay taxes, become legal in come cases – all those things and then all of a sudden simply because you were born in Saint Lucia that all of a sudden you would repatriate them, I am not so sure that the current  ICAO act covers that,” Chastanet told reporters.

He spoke of the need to push collectively at the United Nations to get a special international agreement to deal with deportees.

      Fair point however slight correction “they” haven’t been caught committing any crimes.

      There’s a big difference.

    Come on Allen, you’ve stated St Lucia signed ICAO agreement so that means you’ve got a copy.

    So why then say “I am not so sure that the current ICAO act covers that,” read the signed agreement before issuing contradicting statements.

    You are PM every word which comes out of your mouth will be scrutinised.

    Also, when you say you’ll be doing as much lobbying as you can please utilise old fashioned letters, conference phone calls, Skype, emails please don’t fly out to lobby. Because if you want this changed internationally then that would be a lot of lobbying.

    Don’t forget what you said “the country is broke.”

    Good Luck

    Can The U.N Help – Really!
    Even if the UN, an establishment of the 1945 50-member charter created to broker peace, security and human rights, overwhelmingly approves of a favorable outcome in alignment with PM Chastanet’s call among its 193 members, that agreement would end up another long-winded incoherent tirade typical of the P5 (Permanent Five members of the U.N Security Council) which only serves to shine the spotlight on the rising tide of the anti-globalization movement and it’s parochial priorities now being redrawn.

    More than two-thirds of the Permanent Security Council’s membership; the UK (BREXIT), China(The South China Sea), Russia and the U.S.(migration, trade, energy and national security), are currently re-charting their strategic relationships (international trade and trade routes, mass migration policies, energy and national security just to name a few which has once again placed the U.N and it’s sibling the Human Rights Watch on the ER table for some re-constructive surgery: education, equal pay and nationality issues remain its toughest problems to date – small wonder why the boundaries stop along ideological lines within the P5 itself.

    Country of Origin! What Is That?
    Country of Origin may or may not be your country of citizenship or preference! So what equitable reparation can be favorably granted to the citizens (Chastanet himself included as an individual and as a national (diplomatic))? Such parlay often amount to a few brown-y-points.
    Good luck on the sound bites, PM Chastanet. ..Nothing wrong with being noble.
