Liquidator named for Grenada paper in libel case

Liquidator named for Grenada paper in libel case

A judge in Grenada has appointed a liquidator for a weekly newspaper that lost a libel case to a former prime minister of the Caribbean island.
Justice Claire Henry says she issued the order because the Grenada Today newspaper and former Prime Minister Keith Mitchell failed to agree on an arrangement to pay the damages. A former accountant general was named as the liquidator Tuesday.
Last week the court ordered the newspaper to pay $71,000 in libel damages. Mitchell had sued over a 2001 letter to the editor that called him corrupt and incompetent.
Mitchell held power for 13 years before losing the 2008 general elections.
