St. Lucia debates over location of a US medical school

China.org.cn: "A tough political debate is brewing on the Caribbean island of St. Lucia over the location of an offshore American medical school at a psychiatric facility built by China and completed by Taiwan.

Opposition Leader and former Prime Minister of the 616 square-kilometer island Dr Kenny Anthony, publicly revealed on may 13 that Atlantic University School of Medicine (AUSOM), a relatively unknown US-based outfit, had been officially but quietly permitted by the island's government to establish itself at the psychiatric facility."
