header1 Issues of concern

  • Criminal libel laws remain on the books, with convictions potentially drawing heavy fines and jail sentences of up to five years.
  • Reports of police brutality persist, and there is a widespread perception that members of the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF) enjoy impunity for abusive behavior.
  • Women are underrepresented in political life. LGBT+ people are marginalized, and unprotected by the country’s antidiscrimination laws.
