Saint Lucia

Located in the Eastern Caribbean and prone to hurricanes, this predominantly Catholic island has transitioned from a British Empire colony to full independence. Despite gradually introducing political reforms and democratic institutions, legal reforms have not followed suit. Notably, capital punishment has been reintroduced in response to the rising homicide rate. In addition,children can still be sentenced to life imprisonment.
