TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO: DEATH SENTENCE UPHELD
December 11, 2009: Chief Justice Ivor Archie of the Trinidad & Tobago Court of Appeal rejected the appeal of Marlon Taitt against his death sentence.

In the same case, Justice Archie quashed the death sentence of Ijah Braithwaite and ordered a retrial. (Sources: Trinidad And Tobago Guardian, 12/12/2009)
