Antigua WTO Remedies Implementation Committee
Wednesday July 17,2013 : ANTIGUA GETS DOWN TO BUSINESS ON U.S. GAMBLING SANCTIONS (Update)
Government announces formation of WTO Remedies Implementation Committee
After more than a decade of trying to persuade the United States to respect World Trade Organisation rulings on online gambling in its favour, the Antigua and Barbuda government appears to be moving ahead with action rather than more talk.
The islanders have formed a select committee charged with overseeing the implementation process necessary to suspend certain concessions and other obligations relating to United States intellectual property rights as sanctioned by the World Trade Organisation at a session in January of this year.
The seven-member “WTO Remedies Implementation Committee” (RIC), chaired by Antiguan Attorney General Justin Simon QC, is responsible for directing the government’s plan to build the framework necessary to suspend selected US intellectual property rights to the tune of US $21 million per year, backdated from April, 2006.
The newly formed committee also includes Permanent Secretary in the Department of Trade, Industry and Commerce, Ambassador Colin Murdoch, Magistrate and Deputy Registrar of Intellectual Property, Conliffe Clarke, Legislative Drafter in the Department of Legal Affairs, Ayesha Baisden, Deputy Financial Secretary in the Department of Finance, John Edwards and two additional persons who will be designated by the Ministry of Telecommunications, Science and Technology and by the Antiguan Intellectual Property office, along with legal counsel, Mark Mendel.
“I am very pleased with the composition of our implementation committee”, said Attorney General Simon, “as it clearly has the expertise that we will need to cover all the bases in the development and implementation of our WTO-approved remedies. I am asking the committee to work with me expeditiously to ensure prompt and proper use of this valuable right”.
Simon further observed that “in addition to devising the implementation scheme, the RIC will also ensure that Antigua and Barbuda will do so in full compliance with all applicable international and domestic laws that might relate to the suspension of the intellectual property rights. As the Antiguan government had announced in the Spring, events have made it clear that recourse to the WTO remedy is at this time necessary if the nation is to progress towards a swift and equitable resolution in the decade long trade dispute with the United States."
“We have been seeking a fair and reasonable compromise of this matter since the day we brought the case” added Attorney General Simon, “but unfortunately the United States has not yet put a fair settlement offer on the table. Whether or not recourse to these remedies will convince it otherwise, in any event at least there will be some substantial compensation to Antigua and Barbuda as the IP suspensions are implemented”.
The RIC will convene its first organisational session within a week and is expected to deliver its first progress report to government no later than two weeks thereafter.
