Unfortunately we were unable to obtain expert help for this country, and since the appeals process is run through the court system our score under "Appeals" is less reliable than we would like, and it is fair to say that St. Vincent and the Grenadines as a whole deserves at least a few more points than it received. Other than the lack of a specialised independent appeals body, major weaknesses include the fact that the act does not apply to the judiciary and overly vague exceptions.
