ABSTRACT
The article discusses the steps taken by the Antiguan government after the murder of British honeymooners Catherine and Benjamin Mullany. Being protective of its tourism industry, which accounts for 75% of its economy, the government has revamped the Royal Police Force of Antigua and Barbuda and spent millions of dollars on new security measures. Antigua Hotels and Tourist Association general manager Neil Forrester says that the incident also had a devastating impact on hotels on the island.
