JAMAICA – Jamaica is considering whether to seek compensation from a wealthy conservative MP for his family’s historical role in slavery.

Richard Drax’s ancestors were pioneers of the sugar and slave trades in the Caribbean about 400 years ago.

Jamaica’s National Council on Reparations is also examining the case for pressing Drax for damages.

The MP is also facing demands to pay Barbados for harm caused by slavery at an estate he inherited in the country.
