Denis O’Brien has called on Europe to “fess up” and make reparation payments to Caribbean countries for historical slavery as he announced the establishment of a new campaign group to be based in London.

Speaking in Miami last week at a conference on communication and technology in the Caribbean, Mr O’Brien (inset) said he believed the campaign would take two to three years to bear fruit.
