Browne - GoM Should Respond To FAC Report

Political Activist Chedmond Browne has called on the government to respond to the report by the Foreign Affairs Committee.

The report calls for the legalization of same sex marriages in Montserrat and the other Overseas Territories.

The Committee also calls for voting rights for British Citizens in the OT’s.

Premier of the Cayman Islands Alden McLaughlin strongly denounced the FAC report.

McLaughlin says the day this happens he would lead the charge for independence, as this move is an attempt by the British to take over the territory and to decide and impose their will on the direction the Cayman Islands should take.

The premier stressed that the report was drafted by a committee of Parliament and does not necessarily reflect the views of the U.K. government.

Mr. Browne believes it is time Montserrat’s leaders address the issue.
