and president elect sondra mason. let's go live to the capitol bridge town while latin america editor at b. c. newman is there for so you see a why, what's behind this decision? now we're right now as you can probably hear, the ceremony has not quite started, but they've reparation them. you can, you could say really us as celebration is 100 away here. just that had all the actual ceremony with in about an hour. really, this is a lot, but this is a country that was boy, really, i think the center of the when it began. mm hm. and that history has more heavily,
descendants of those african slaves that were brought here in barbados, known as little england, is the most eastern li, caribbean island. it was a slave colony known for its vast sugar fields and gained independence only 55 years ago. we barbados has been one of the cleans 16 realms countries where she is head of state. and there were demonstrations that they were of enthusiasm and royalty. but for many, it was time to cut the umbilical cord with the monarchy by declaring barbados, a republic to wayne a bayesian as barbados call themselves cells, tiny salty fruit that grows by the seaside, a specialty here. he agrees with the change. it has to be a positive, but one of us is able to run the quote for, you know, it was made some decisions id rather be in the benefit. rent of your own jasa. so yeah,
i guess guess. okay. but others like 19 year old kashana says that the decision to break with the monarchy was imposed on them by the prime minister without consultation. they wasn't even as this one did. she say, is it probably now, was it, it is in fact more symbolic than anything else. a new president will have largely ceremonial role, and barbados will remain a part of the british commonwealth under its current prime minister. prince charles's, here's guest of honor. it's not his 1st trip to barbados, but as representative of the monarchy it will be his last, this former quaker plantation has been the residence of the governor general, the queen's representative in barbados for the last 55 years. now it will be the residence of this country's new president, making barbados the was youngest republic, at least for now. in fact, other former caribbean colonies of the british monarchy such as grenada and jamaica,
may just decide that they want to be next. still has them, there are barbados, who believe that the country isn't really ready for the type of independence yet. others, of course, will disagree in about half an hour right behind me. the arrival of the president is elect the prime minister, and prince charles will be here for the adobe racing of random with the ceremony that with rather i'm sorry, into an official republic and whether it's ready or not, it is exactly what's going to happen this year. thanks for that. let's see a new life 1st in town. let's stay in bridgetown now and talk to kevin edie. he is an independent political and international relations consultant, and so he joins us from there. talk more about this. so why, why is barbados decided to do this now?
well, barbados, decide to do this at this point in time, because it has been a long process. barbados has been looking to go be full of full sovereignty for the last over 40 years, from independence even back in 18. 62 and the government of our business at the time, especially through some, especially on the administration as believe, be not, no, with the time 55 years later that barbados should really several bees in direct colonial united kingdom. what does it mean for people in barbados, in practical towns, because it's been an independent country for more than 50 years, and the queen has lost lee been a figurehead all that time. so what is that tangible benefit of this to people that don't do well, as you correctly said, on the, on the previous, the,
the competition, the monarchy, barbados, to be barbados does not have direct interference from the queen and the royal family. but mary threw it by 3 gent through the governor general of barbados. no, many barbados, understand the move is largely administered by the government, the barbie. the fact that the transmission republic would mean from january of 16 month period of constitutional constitutional consultation based on amending certain aspects of the barbie. the constitution, no, they would have already, they would have already looked be charco, charter. barbados, basically, is a set of ideas that operation on what the barbarian people would stand for over the net or who went in for the next 50 years of independence. and a lot of these things are, you know, free, free expression,
free expression. it's basically like a bill of rights of sort a reaffirming of our police barbarians with this in our country. now, i can admit some person to feel as if there was a situation where, you know, we may lose preferential act fast. for example, the united kingdom, due to the fact that we were able to sit around. but there has been a, has the level of information, a level of educational programs and the street. the 1st thing, listen barbados experience. yesterday, the 29th of november, for the most part, is going to be the same way. the 30th of november, the 20 differences. you have a governor general if you have a president instead of a governor general. so i said many barbarians. i know warming up city in that regard. good to get your thoughts on this. kevin eddie john, is there a from

who took his own life 2 years ago while awaiting trial. maxwell has pleaded not guilty to the charges, gave her elizondo reports from new york. jeffrey epstein and glen maxwell met a young girl in a park bench, befriended her, and then later sexually abused her to protect her identity. prosecutors called her jane. she was 14 years old and the abuse went on for years and occurred and several of epstein homes in florida, new mexico and new york. that was just one of the accusations that prosecutor made an opening statement of maxwell's trial. they accused maxwell of their words, serving up young women for epstein abuse. she put them at ease and made them feel safe. also they could be sexually abused by a middle aged man, prosecutor said, and also called maxwell, a predator who prayed on vulnerable young girls and manipulated them. but epstein committed suicide. so he isn't on trial. maxwell is at adel, is say,
prosecutors over the next few weeks will need to show how she recruited, groomed, and participated in the abuse of the girls. we are not in the court room this week, determining whether or not the victims were victims of sex crimes at the hands of mr. epstein. that's not what this trial is about. this trial is about mid maxwell, a legit activity to enable mister epstein to abuse these little kids. for women are expected to testify that they were recruited and groomed by maxwell for abuse, including jane. that 14 year old, the prosecutors say was one of the victims. jane is now an adult and she plans to tell the jury everything she says happened to her. in their opening statement, maxwell, the defense lawyer told the 12 person jury she is being used as
a scapegoat for epstein alleged crimes. she is filling the hole and filling an empty chair. she is a convenient stand in for the man who cannot be here. monday was a day for the lawyers on both sides to lay out their case. now it was to witnesses a trial that likely won't conclude until at least january. gabriel is hondo which is either york accord letting consume be handed to me and most depose, leader of science to cheat the trial over. and simon is the 1st in a series of charges against sushi journalists have been borrowed from the call room in the military built capital night, the door and her lawyer as a band from speaking to the media. she was detained in february when the military ceased power. so what are the other charges or the latest trial is for assignment against the military and violating code, 19 protocols. after c cheese arrest in february, she was hit with charges for possessing unlicensed walkie talkies. and for 2
violations against corona virus restrictions during the 2020 elections as well as the official secrets act, which prohibits sharing state information. she's also accused of corruption and fraud. with all the charges combined, she faces more than a 100 years in prison. see, she has been held in an undisclosed location since june. us and us are demanding her release. floss, louis is life force in quite alone, post floods. what's likely to happen then? what do we expect to while political observers and analysts, i've spoken to say they won't be surprised if she is given a guilty verdict. now this is just the 1st verdict out of several that we're expecting. and hardly anyone believes to gee, and her co defendants have been given a fair trial. now she's on trial together with deposed form a precedent me when and another high ranking official. now there have been the been
very few. there's been hardly any reports about what's been happening in court because no media is allowed or to no members of the public. no. observe as we don't know how the court proceedings have been take, have been going on. and in october, the june had placed a gag order on the defense lawyers from speaking to reported. non susie and her co defendants have also had very little access to defense lawyers. they, many of the political observers say that the printer is still very fearful off on fan sushi and just how popular she is. and they won't be surprised if she is given a guilty verdict. now they also say that if she is allowed, but they say very likely that even if she is incarcerated, she will be very likely allowed to serve under a to have under house arrest. just as previous military governments have done. and what impact if there is a guilty verdict, what impact will they have on the, the anti coo movements?
well, office which is still extremely popular and not less so in the ethnic minority controlled areas. but on the whole, still very popular. and many people believe that the charges against her and the co different her co defendants are politically motivated. now, one of the main coals of the anti proud of the anti coo protest movement is for the gentile to release on from sushi and others who have been detained for opposing the cool. now i think if she is found guilty, it will give the protest movement a renewed momentum, greater results. but at the same time, the protest movement is so much more than just about often sushi, the people of me and i've spoken out and they don't want to live on the military rule. they've demonstrated that by holding anti street, by holding street protests by holding a civil disobedience movement, and now by launching attacks on security forces. so they're talking very clearly that they don't want minute rules whether or not she's found guilty whether or not
she's given a jail sentence or allowed to return back to politics. the protest movement is going to go on florence louis. enquire lou port, thank you. how prosecutors have asked the u. s. supreme court to review the ruling that overturned bill cosby? sexual assault conviction crosby's lawyers say the comedian relied on a promise that he would never be charged when he gave damaging testimony in an accuse a civil suit in 2006 lawyers say that promise cosette a dangerous precedent. the 84 year old spent nearly 3 years in prison and was released in june sees far monitors say there's been a significant increase in fighting between russia back separatists and ukrainian military since russia's troop build up near the border. moscow denies it has any plan to invade ukraine, calling the allegations hysterical and malicious. cha, stratford reports from neela. village of yanna on the front line with the ukrainian military pouring rain pitch black.
