Photo credit: flags.netHAVANA, Cuba (ACN) — Cuba has denounced before the World Trade Organisation (WTO) Dispute Settlement Body the United States’ failure to recognize the international organization’s decision regarding Section 211 of the US Omnibus Appropriations Act of 1998, which infringes Cuba’s intellectual property rights.Prensa Latina reported that the Cuban ambassador to the Geneva-based international organization, Rodolfo Reyes, said the US has the legal obligation to derogate Section 211 as established within the framework of the WTO Dispute Settlement body. Section 211 is part of measures supported by the economic, commercial and financial blockade against Cuba, which Reyes described as “unjust, illegal and genocide.” It hinders foreign investment in the island associated with the commercialization of world-known Cuban products, while allowing Bacardi to illegally sell its rum under the Cuban trademark of Havana Club, he said.The Cuban diplomat slammed the White House’s double standards as it assumes the right to judge other WTO members while repeatedly refusing to meet its obligations to the organization.Cuba received the support of many delegations in the forum, among them those from Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, China, Ecuador, Mexico, Paraguay, Uruguay and Venezuela.Caribbean News Nowcenter_img Share Tweet 13 Views ? no discussionslast_img read more

first_imgKamboe Sneh Jr., consoling a large gathering of mourners celebrating the home-going of his father, Deacon Kamboe Sneh Sr. of the Christian Community Center (CCC), said there is time for everything under the sun (quoting Ecclesiastes. 3:1-8).The funeral was held at the CCC edifice in Jacob Town, Paynesville last Saturday.Samuel Sneh, choked with emotion, told the gathering that in God’s own time, He would wipe tears away from “our eyes, and there would be no pain, outcry and mourning,” as he suddenly held his peace, unable to continue the reading from Revelation 21: 3-8.Though it was said that it was a celebration of Deacon Sneh’s life, since he was a man who worked to show others God’s love, the echoes of mourners filled the background as his remains were viewed at the Stryker Funeral Home and at the CCC edifice. Deacon Sneh died at the age of 51 after a protracted illness. Delivering the discourse, Rev. Dr. Al Karlay told the mourners that he loved those he came in contact with and therefore they must use love as the mirror of his life to continue to build each other up.Rev. Karlay told them to look back on their lives, as in a mirror, to see whether they have the spirit to undermine, to hate, to divide and to destroy.“Let your love change others; let your love build others up and you must leave from here today to share love with each other,” Rev. Karlay said.The English and the Kru choirs sang the favorite hymns of the late Deacon Sneh. Tributes came from the Ministry of Lands & Energy, Murrayville Community, Bomi County Association, Tolbert Group of Companies, among others. Burial took place in Brewerville.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
