Montserrat Debating Team Ready to Defend their Title in St. Kitts

LIDC 2015-Moot ScheduleBRADES – It’s been one year since Montserrat won the Leeward Island Debating Competition in fine form and now it is time for them to defend the title.
Starting Thursday, February 26 on St. Kitts, the team will watch their counterparts present moots on “The CARICOM’s region’s failure to legalise marijuana is a colossal mistake”; “There should be a stricter media censorship in Caribbean society”; and Discriminatory screening practices are necessary to reduce spread of viruses new to the Caribbean region”.
Montserrat will take on the winners of Moot 1 on Saturday evening with “The advance effects of citizenship by investment programmes outweigh the economic advantages.”
Competing this year for Montserrat are: Sharese Allen, Vanice Tuitt, Chekwube Okereke, Dwaynifia Joseph, Darenthea Sweeney, and Asneil Jeffers.
Dr Samuel Joseph (Coach) with Ms Ann Marie Dewar and Ms Marsha Allen as Staff Sponsors
The debate is being held at the St. Kitts Marriott and all events are free. The competition will also be streamed live on radio and the internet.
