THE government of Saint Lucia has answered the question which your newspaper posed in its editorial comment of January 2, 2016.
On Tuesday 19th January it was all over the airwaves that the government of Saint Lucia has turned down a request from Her Majesty’s Government in London that it withdraws diplomatic immunity from Mr. Juffali, its Saudi Arabian born diplomat on the IMO. There should now be little doubt about how to answer your earlier question especially as no evidence has been produced to suggest that Saint Lucia has benefitted in any way from the Juffali appointment.
Whether anyone else benefitted will hopefully be discovered some fine day.
