Grenada. In June, Grenada's Truth and Reconciliation Commission
recommended that the criticized trials against the so-called
Grenada 17 be redone. According to
CountryAAH, the Commission was formed in 2001 to
investigate what really happened on the island during the
tumultuous years 1976-91. The 17 were sentenced to death in
1986 after being found guilty of the coup in 1983, when the
then prime minister and four other ministers were killed.
The death penalty for 14 of the 17 was upheld in February
2005 by the Regional East Caribbean Court of Appeal.
