Pay for Joey Ramiah's hanging?

Extract: Newsday

The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights wants the Government of Trinidad and Tobago to pay compensation to the family of executed killer Joey Ramiah.

The Commission believes that Ramiah was executed while a petition was pending before it in respect to his conviction (along with Naresh Boodram) for the murders of Anthony "Tooks" Greenidge and Stephen "Bulls" Sandy.

Ramiah, formerly of Frederick Settlement, Caroni, was hanged at the Port-of-Spain State Prison on June 4, 1999, along with Dole Chadee and seven others for the murders of four members of a family at Williamsville on January 10, 1994.

The Commission feels that Ramiah was wrongly executed while a petition was pending on another matter.
