Joint operation by

police officers and

immigration officials

Tribune Staff Reporter
IN THEIR continuing
effort to ensure that the
Bahamas Straw Market is,
and will remain exclusively
Bahamian, the Immigration
Department and the police
conducted a joint raid on the
site yesterday morning.
Surrounding the market at
9 am, the officers went from
vendor to vendor checking for
work and status permits.
It is reported that a num-
ber of vendors, or helpers,
seeking to escape the officers
were caught at the north and
southern exits.
The exact number of per-
sons taken away is still not
known, but at least one immi-
gration van, filled with market
women, was seen leaving the
area shortly after 10am.
This exercise was a part of
an even bigger, island-wide
operation by the department
of immigration that continued
from Thursday night into the
morning hours of Friday.
Coral Harbour, Bacardi
Road, and Gladstone Road
were areas in which the immi-
gration department coricen- '
Labour and Immigration
Minister Vincent Peet said the
exercise is consistent with the
commitment his ministry

made long ago.
"There is an exercise ongo-
ing and the full extent of that
remains to be seen. This
recent exercise was an opera-
tion that was meant to find as
many illegal immigrants as
possible. And to find as many
as one can, the .larger the
operation, the better," he said.
At the straw market yester-
day, the site was alive to the
sound of violent shouting and
cursing by wary Bahamian
vendors who claim that the
illegal immigration problem
at the market has gone too
long unnoticed.
"Clean them out! That's
what they need to do. It's too,
much of this in here. It's a
detriment to the market.
Clean em' out," one vendor
Another vendor, although
grateful for the action of the
immigration officers, said that
the department of immigra-
tion should be ashamed of
itself for allowing the situa-
tion to get so "out of hand".
"They take so long before
they clean this place up. It's a
disgrace. They should have
done this from January.
"If Mr Miller (Minister of
Trade and Industry Leslie
Miller) had done his job
before we would not be hav-
ing this problem," she said.

Properties in the Woman claims

in plea deal by
securities trader

NASSAU-BASED securities trader Derek
Turner, who faces up to seven years in jail after
admitting swindling investors out of $16 mil-
lion, has forfeited five properties in the Bahamas
as part of a plea deal.
The 55-year-old New Zealander, who oper-
ated his scam from his Paradise Island home, has
surrendered properties worth around $14 million
in a bid to escape a 20-year prison term.
Including this money, he will have to pay $16
million in restitution to his victims, the balance
to be paid on his release around 2011 or 2012.
A former associate of Turner, who tried to sue
banker Mohammed Harajchi for libel two years
ago after The Confidential Source claimed Turn-
er was a crook, told The Tribune: "It looks like
the end of the short-lived Turner 'empire' in
the Bahamas.

cured paralysis

Tribune Staff Reporter
"I TOLD my children, 'Bring the water',"
said an elderly woman, recounting how she was
paralysed after a fall, and after being sprinkled
with a few drops of "Miracle Water" was able to
get up and dance.
This was one of the many testimonies given at
Thursday night's "God Working Through The
Water" services held at the Golden Gates World
Outreach Ministries where hundreds of persons-
seeking their own blessing flocked to "the
water". The church, which seats 3,000, was more
than three-thirds full.

the "Singing Prophet" Bishop Lawrence Rolle of
the Voice of Deliverance, has offered his mem-

child abuse

cases are

on the rise
Tribune Staff Reporter
WITHIN the first six
months of this year the
reported cases of child abuse
has increased substantially.
The problem of child abuse
in the Bahamas has received
much attention recently.
According to statistics from
the Department of Social
Services, between January
and June, 2004, there were
240 reported cases of child
abuse in the Bahamas.
This year, during the same
period, 309 cases were report-
ed, an increase of 69 cases.
Of the number of child abuse
cases so far this year, neglect
ranks highest with 138 cases;
physical abuse is second with
100 reported cases.
In an interview with The
Tribune yesterday, Anita
Turnquest, chief welfare offi-
cer at the Department of
Social Services, expressed
concern over the increase.
"At the middle of the year
we have already received 309
reported cases of abuse. It
stands to reason, if the trend
continues we will roughly see
600 plus cases at the end of
the year. This would certain-
ly not be good because we

Allegation by
Cuban refugee
POLICE have yet to make
any arrests in connection with
the allegation by a Cuban
refugee that he was a victim
of brutality at the hands of
two Royal Bahamas Defence
Force officers.
However, assistant commis-
sioner Reginald Ferguson said
police are continuing their
investigation into the matter.
In late July, the then acting
Minister of Labour and
Immigration Obie Wilch-
combe said that the Cuban
refugee alleged that two
Defence Force officers beat
and shot him twice with rub-
ber bullets while he was being
held at the Carmichael Deten-
tion Centre.

Irene was located at 690 miles
southeast of Cape Hatteras,
North Carolina and was mov-

sustained winds of 50mph.
Irene is expected to pass just
north of the Bahamas and to
continue in this direction for
the next 24 hours with a grad-
ual decrease in its forward
According to Mr Dean,
Irene is also expected to
become a hurricane within the
next 24 hours.
"The Bahamas will not feel
much of the effects of Irene,"
he said. "We will get some
showers late Saturday evening,
but other than that I don't
expect that we will have much
effects from the storm."

prompts concern for


MINISTER of Education
Alfred Sears said he is "very con-
cerned" about the massive indus-
trial action being taken by British
Airways employees as Bahamian
students returning to university
in the UK could be affected.
The minister said he has asked
his staff to keep a close eye on
the matter.
"This general strike could
affect everybody and obviously
affect Bahamian and Caribbean
students returning to their
respective universities."
"I hope that the industrial
action there is short, but should it

as he has been out of the country.
"I have asked officials at the
Ministry of Education to monitor
the situation and keep me updat-
ed. We will consider alternative
arrangements if these events con-
tinue and will advise our students
as to what our options are. We
are very concerned," he said.
According to a CNN report,

Friday's Tribune reported that
British Airways passengers trav-
elling to and from the Bahamas
are having to face the eight hour
flight on an empty stomach.

As of Thursday, all British Air-
ways flights were without in-
flight catering due to a labour
dispute in the UK.
The problem has since esca-
lated and British Airways was
forced to suspend passenger
check-ins at Heathrow airport
because of what yesterday
became a general strike involving
1000 BA staff, who were protest-
ing the sacking of 800 sub-con-
tracted caterers.
Yesterday, a, BA spokesman
reportedly told the Reuters news
agency that 535 flights had been
canceled, and that thousands of
people were stranded at
Heathrow Airport.
Britain's Transport and Gen-
eral Workers Union (TGWU)
claimed it did not approve the
strike and called the dispute
On Friday CNN reported that
two thirds of the British Airways
staff who took part in the strike
returned to work.
Their return reportedly came
after discussions between the
government backed mediators
Acas, Gate Gourmet and the
striking employees. As a result of
their return, BA resumed flights
yesterday afternoon, although
only in a limited capacity to clear
the backlog of passengers holed
up at Heathrow since Thursday.


IJ MINISTER of Education
Alfred Sears voiced his concern
for Bahamian students return-
ing to the UK.

According to CNN, about
113,000 travellers were stranded
because of the action. Yesterday,

junkanoo in

Grand Bahama

EDITOR, The Tribune.

WELL "bulla, dey bus,
hole in the road" in Freeport.
last Sunday night is the com-
mon expression heard when
referring to that absolutely
spectacular junkanoo per-
formance featured as a part
of the fiftieth anniversary of
the signing of the Hawksbill
Creek Agreement (HCA)
giving birth to the city of
Freeport. This was certainly
the "mother" of all junkanoo
parades here on Grand
Bahama. As appropriate, any
significant celebration in the
Bahamas should feature the
national culture of the
Bahamas. Most persons, and
especially those on Grand
Bahama, perceived this his-
torical milestone on the
Bahamian calendar as a pri-.
vate Grand Bahama Port
Authority (GBPA) affair.
The feeling of apathy dom-
inates the care or concern
most Grand Bahamians have
about the HCA. While in a
newly opened convenience
store in Caravel Beach on
the day of the parade, I was
shocked when the store own-
er informed me that she
knew nothing about the
HCA or the year it was
The fact that she had a
store means that she is a
licensee of the GBPA and a
direct benefactor of the
HCA signing.
However, what sparked
her interest the celebrations
that week like so many oth-
ers on Grand Bahama, was
the junkanoo. "
For the first time ever,
Grand Bahamians had the
unique experience of "Nas-
sau" quality junkanoo as sev-
eral groups out of Nassau
were featured in this parade.
All week long, members of
the public were bragging
about how much better this
parade will be since veteran
groups such as the Saxons
and Valley Boys will be fea-
tured. It was a widely held
view that the Grand Bahamaia
All Star group would be put
to shame as the Nassau
groups would outclass and
out perform Grand Bahama
by dominating all categories
of the competition. Regret-
tably, this was also the pre-
vailing view of the Nassau
groups as well. But, like the

Nasau Bhaas

head of the Central Intelli-
gence Agency (CIA) who
was fired for providing mis-
information on the weapons
of mass destruction in Iraq,
Whoever provided this false
information that the Grand
Bahama Group was not up
to par should have been fired
as well. There was no Saxon
invasion as was expected.
The Grand Bahama group
ambushed Nassau by keep-
ing up with the national
champions. Can you believe
that Grand Bahama actually
beat a veteran group like the
Valley Boys in music? Or the
successful junkanoo music
recorders of Roots? In the
category of Best Banner,
Best Lead Costume, Best Off
the Shoulder Dancer, Grand
Bahama was neck and neck
with the Nassau groups, just
barely losing out.
Make no mistake about it,
but this is fair notice to all
Bahamians that Nassau no
longer holds a monopoly on
junkanoo performance. For
the past two junior junkanoo
parades in Nassau, little Har-
bour Island on both occa-
sions had almost upset the
nation's capital by. perform-
ing well in that contest. For
years, Grand Bahamians
have placed in the top at the
individual junkanoo compe-
tition, everything from cow-
belling to foghorn and from
drumming to five man com-
bo. Even one of the missing
five boys, Jake Grant, had
won a national event in danc-
ing. Many Grand Bahamians
are also members of Nassau
groups, some of whom chose
to rush with the Nassau
groups, rather than with the
Grand Bahama All Stars.
The only advantage Nas-
sau has over the other island
is one of funding and not of
talent. Most Bahamians do
not realise what the true cost
of junkanoo is. Furthermore,
here on Grand Bahama,
there are just a handful of
B,ahamians who provide any
degree of significant finan-
cial support to junkanoo. In
addition, businesses such as
banks, insurance companies,
merchants, etc, often deny
appeals from Grand Bahama
groups with the excuse that
their main office in Nassau
had already given to the
national groups. Clearly, in
this respect, Grand Bahama
is at a serious disadvantage.
An example of direct cost
in junkanoo today, one just
has to look at the cost of
feathers that are now widely
utilised to enhance the beau-
ty of a costume. An ostrich
feather can cost as much as
five dollars/feather. A pheas-
ant feather can cost as much
as fifteen dollars/feather. On-
a costume, there can be up
to one hundred feathers or
more. Easily, one beller cos-
tume or an off the shoulder
dancer can cost a thousand
dollars or more. Of course,
that labour of love of spend-
ing countless hours making
the costume, one cannot put
a price on. If Grand Bahama
wants a parade more on par
with Nassau, no problem,
they simply have to put their
money where their mouth is.
For far too long, junkanoo
on Grand Bahama has been
For the purpose of this
parade, the Grand Bahama
Superstars' number one
problem appeared to have
been the Grand Bahama
Superstars themselves. This
group was an amalgamation
ofmost of the groups on
Grand Bahama. To adminis-
trate this group with all of
the different personalities
involved was a nightmare.
Thanks to the efforts of Bob
Davis of the Rockers, Mike
Wright of the Harbour Boys,
-Father Reggie of the Cru-

saders and Huck Williams of
the Swingers, they were able
to set aside'their differences
and come together for a
common good and united
their forces. However, this
unity appears to have result-
ed in a lack of consistency of
the quality of the Grand
Bahama costume. One local
observer indicated to me that
it was obvious which cos-
tumes were of Swinger's
The Classic Dancers under
Ken "Motorboat" Ferguson
was the only major group on
Grand Bahama that did not
participate. This was most
surprising as the Classic
Dancers often boast about
the number of New Year's
Day victories they have won
in recent times. It is a well
known fact that the Classic
Dancers have been the fre-
quent recipient of the gen-
erosity of the GBPA. Peter
Adderley, the Public Rela-
tions person for this -event is
also the Public Relations per-
son for the Classic Dancers.
The Classic Dancers non
participation is most dis-
graceful and unacceptable as
we are always trying to unite
the junkanoo groups and
work together. This division
was most selfish on the part
of the Classic Dancers.
And finally the million dol-
lar question that so many are
already asking, will this
parade be made into an
annual event?
A lower'attendance at the
Fox Hill Emancipation Day
parade in Nassau had
already been noted as many
of those who traditionally
would visit or perform at that
parade were in Freeport. By
every stretch of the imagina-
tion, it was a successful event
as far as finances were con-
Yes, the hotels were filled
and you couldn't find a
rental car (something
unheard of in Freeport), the
taxi drivers finally had a
decent day and the bars and
restaurants were busy as
many persons travelled from
Nassau and elsewhere for
this event. Obviously, much
of these expenses were sub-
sidised by the event.
Therefore the fact that
there was a record prize win-
ning purse, the public still
needs to see a complete
financial picture before they
can make an intelligent
assessment as to whether it is
a financially feasible venture.
Yes a lot of people made
money, but did the
junkanooers make money as
Notably absent from this
event were persons from the
Ministry of Youth andCul-
ture. This was a private event
and so their presence was not
mandatory. However, this
event really shows up the
Ministry as the prize awards
in the New -Year's Day
parade on Grand Bahama
are only a fraction of the
amount given at this parade.
There is no way the govern-
ment can match this amount
at this time.
If there is so much money
around for junkanoo, why is
it so difficult for the Grand
Bahama groups to get spon-
Also, there is a deep con-
cern that some of the moneys
that financed this venture
were solicited from compa-
nies that traditionally sup-

$250 million

Tribune Staff
THE Minister of
Labour and Immigration
Vincent Peet will be trav-
eling to Chub Cay today
to review the $250 million
dollar redevelopment tak-
ing place at the island
With 250 people already
employed on the project,
and another 150 expected
to be hired before the end
of the month, Mr Peet
said that this development
on Chub Cay is "quite a
boost" for his constituen-
cy in economic terms.
The Chub Cay Develop-
ment Group is expanding
its current marina to
house 200 yachts and
claims to be making
"extensive" improvements
on the island's current

'"The owners of the cay
are doing a major redevel-
opment of the marina and
the whole cay. We are
very excited about it and
the fantastic development.
"This is some significant
economic relief for us in
North Andros, as most of
the labourers are coming
from North Andros and
the Berry Islands.
"This is a part of the
commitment that we have
to bring economic help to
North Andros," he said.
"The other important'
point is that some very
well paying permanent
jobs are being made at the
same time," Mr Peet con-
tinued, "as electricians

Bahamian health officials

cautious on new HIV claims

A NEW HIV treatment
strategy has been hailed in the
international media as having
"definite promise", however
Bahamian health officials say
it is too soon for them to take
a position on the issue.
According to news reports
in the US, new "anti-convul-
sive" treatment might even-
tually have the potential to
transform the disease into a
curable infection.
Speaking with The Tribune
yesterday, Bahamas National
AIDS Centre director Rosa
Mae Bain said neither she nor
Dr Perry Gomez, the director
of the Bahamas National
AIDS programme, "are will-
ing to comment on issue".
"Because of the lack of
research into the issue and
because of the uncertainties
surrounding it, we would
rather wait until more
research is done," she said.
An article printed in the
Miami Herald yesterday stat-
ed that scientists are report-
ing new findings in the search
for a cure for HIV/Aids.

The article was based on
information published in this
week's Lancet medical jour-
nal and outlined how scien-
tists used an "anti-convulsant"
drug to awaken dormant HIV
in the body.
According to the article,
four patients on standard ther-
apy were given pills containing
the latest HIV treatment drug,
valproic acid, and instructed
to take them twice daily for
three months.
At the end of the study, the
number of dormant HIV cells
had decreased by 75 per cent
in three out of the four
Speaking to the British
press, Dr David Margolis, who
led the study, said: "This find-
ing, though not definitive, sug-
gests that new approaches-will
allow the cure of HIV in the
"It's a significant conceptu-
al move forward," he said.
The Herald article stated
that "HIV infection is incur-
able because current drugs
only work when the virus is

"any advancement in the
treatment of HIV/AIDS will
be and should be considered
to be a great strand.

"As for the Bahamas, once
the treatment is proven effec-
tive and is approved for use it
will be welcomed and used,"
he said.

Over the last few years, a
handful of drugs have been
shown to decrease the size of
the dormant HIV pool, but
they were abandoned because
their effect was either too
weak or the side effects too
According to the report,
more studies and research

deemed effective.

multiplying, which occurs only
when it is in an active cell.
However, HIV sometimes
infects dormant cells, and
when it does, it becomes dor-
mant itself."

"While the virus poses no
threat in its resting state, the
sleeping cells sporadically
wake up, reactivating the virus
and causing it to multiply.
Patients must continue to take
medications for the rest of
their lives so they can fight the
virus when it comes out of the
reawakened cells. Only if
every last infected dormant
cell is wiped out or the virus
purged from these cells can
patients stop taking medica-
tion and be virus-free."
According to Dr Warner
Greene, director of the Glad-
stone Institute for Virology
and Immunolbgy at the Uni-
versity of California, San
Francisco, "the idea, if we
could ever do it, is to purge
every latently infected cell."

"Treat patients for proba-
bly two or three years, they'd
be able to come off their anti-
retroviral therapy and they'd
be virus-free," he said.
In July, Bahamas Minister
of Health Marcus Bethel said
that at the end of 2003; an esti-
mated 430,000 people were
living with HIV and AIDS in
the Caribbean.
According to him, 52,000 of
these persons had been infect-
ed that year.
Speaking to The Tribune
yesterday, Mr Bethel said that
currently, "the Bahamas has
the fourth prevalence rate of
HIV/AIDS cases in the
Caribbean region."
He added that the Bahamas
has made great progress in
"combating HIV and will con-
tinue to do so."

"I am so vex because I went to the air-
port and they towed my car at 8 o'clock

tourist walked right up to the counter, and just plunked down. So the
ticket agent said very politely, "May I help you," and he goes "oh I am

to check you in as soon as I am done with these customers, just wait

I am completely vexed because young men don't know how to work
for what they want in this life. They insist on stealing from persons on
the street, and robbing homes, and taking what don't belong to them.
I was the victim of a purse snatching last week, and I am still in shock
that persons can just roll up beside you and take an item that holds all
your personal effects. And they never looked back. As sure as God is

Over the Hill

'success stories'

Tribune Staff
THE commemora-
tion of emancipation
from slavery probably
means more to the
people of Over the
Hill than anyone else
in the Bahamas, one'
group contends.
The Over the Hill
Reunion Group, which
consists mostly of
patriarchs and matri-
archs who grew up in
the area, re-unites
every August to com-
memorate emancipa-
tion and to reflect on
the pre-emancipation EZELMA DEAN a
era which they were
told about as children.
President Juliette Barnwell recalled that
when she was growing up, the "old Over the
Hill" was a bustling community because all of
the activities of,the, slave descendants were
centered around the area.

The original Over the Hill, she said, consist-
ed of the area from Nassau Street to Collins
wall, along East street, and was bordered on
the north and south by Delancy Street and
Poinciana Drive respectively.
Ms Barnwell said that although most of the
group have moved out of the area, they make
it a point to gather every year to give thanks
for where they came from, where they are now,
and where they are headed as their grandchil-
dren, and in some cases great grandchildren,
become the country's future leaders.
On Sunday, August 14 at 4pm, the group
will recognise two persons who are considered
success stories from Over the Hill.

nd Wenzel Lightbourne

Zelma Dean, a stal-
wart in Bahamian
education, and Wen-
zel Lightbourne, a
thriving entrepreneur,
will be honoured this
Mrs Dean has
served Bahamians as
a school principal
for more than 20
Before ascending to
the position of chief
of schools, she taught
Bahamian children
for many years at
schools including the
Southern Senior
School, Southern
Preparatory School,
Western Preparatory,
Claridge Secondary,
and CH Reeves.

She is married to
Audley Dean and is a mother of three and a
grandmother of two.
A devout Anglican, Mrs Dean continues to
make strides in community service, participat-
ing in organisations such as the Pilot Club and
the Juvenile Panel.
Another "bright star" from Over the Hill is
Wenzel Lightbourne.
He was born in Scott Street in the heart of
Bain Town.
Mr Lightbourne was one of the first gradu-
ates of St Augustine's College, and went on
in the early 1950s to work at Bahamas Gas
Company, then run by Sir Stafford Sands and
Sir Roland Symonette.
He worked up the ranks of the
company and took over complete ownership in
It is success stories such as these that inspire
the Over the Hill reunion group to continue to
encourage youths growing up in the ghetto
today, they say.
According to Ms Barnwell, the trend should
continue for all Bahamian time.

Derek Turner's journey


paradise to prison

On the face of it, Derek Turner was a

super-successful family man. With an attractive

TaiWanese wife, six children and a Paradise

Island luxury home, he appeared to have

everything. In truth, he was an unscrupulous

swindler who preyed on investors,

accumulating a sizeable fortune in the process.

FOR several months during
2002, I was one of many media
men bombarded daily by Derek
Turner with e-mails promoting
his design for a new World
Trade Centre in New York.
With typical thoroughness, he
circulated highly sophisticated
artist's impressions, intricate
cross-sections, immaculate line
drawings, detailed cost projec-
tions and lavish material speci-
fications to expose his scheme.

said, a counter to evil forces, a

resilience, a soaring reflection
of the western world's defiance.
; Superficially, it was hard to

gy and determination expended
in promoting his vision was -

found it exhausting just read-

But, like him, the concept was
flawed. His design was bulky,
out-of-scale and to be frank
rather ridiculous. Had Man-
hattan been mad enough to fall
in with his thinking, it would
have been lumbered with what
looked like the world's biggest

of Wall Street and Greenwich
Village and leaving huge
swathes of downtown New
York in perpetual shadow.
What was significant about
Cyber City was its sheer
grandiosity, vaulting ambition
and its rather dubious outra-
geousness. For this was what
Derek Turner was all about.
With his gold neck-chain,
:neatly-groomed beard and leo-
nine greying locks, Turner's
studied casualness and easy
charm concealed the hard,
scheming heart of a practised
conman. He lived the high life
on other people's money.
This week, Turner's dishon-
esty caught up with him. The
Nassau-based securities trader is
set to serve seven years in an
American jail for swindling
investors out of $16 million.
Then he will be deported back
to his homeland, where he is
unlikely to get anything resem-
bling a fulsome reception.
Turner was arrested last April
after a 17-month undercover
operation during which the
Feds discovered that his
Bahamas-based company was
milking investors without mer- .
cy. He faces formal sentencing
on September 16.
Like many before him, Turn-
er washed up in Nassau (in the
year 2000) with the murk of
past misdeeds hanging over

him. But he was nothing if not
brazen. He hired architects to
design a home at Ocean Club
Estates and in quick order
acquired local properties worth
$14 million.
From Paradise Island, he ran
his enterprise Turning Proper-
ties Ltd, profiting from the
Bahamas' tax-neutral jurisdic-
tion and close proximity to the
United States.
His home, apparently, was a
high-tech lair from which he
could track the world's markets
day and night on a bank of flick-
ering screens. He boasted of
having the most sophisticated
computer network system in the

Bahamas, with multiple 42-inch
Splasmas and data supplied by
Trading was second nature to
him. From the age of 21, he was
into managing money, letters of
credit and currencies. Then he
graduated into securities and
finally, exclusively, into indexes.
His conversation, full of arcane
terminology, was never less
than overpoweringly optimistic.
Losing was never part of his
game plan.
His profession generated
enough income to fund a multi-
tude of homes and vintage cars.
By the time he arrived in Nas-
sau, he had enough of the
accoutrements of wealth to
make even the plutocrats of
Paradise Island pop-eyed.
But not everyone was
impressed. A journalist sent to
interview Turner was not taken
in by his practised urbanity.
"There's something distinctly
dodgy about him," she said.
"There's something not quite
So it proved, and in spectac-
ular fashion, but not after Turn-
er had sanctimoniously protest-
ed against smears on his name,
notably in his high-profile libel
action against the controversial
banker Mohammed Harajchi.
Near-neighbour Harajchi,
owner of Suisse Security Bank
and Trust, was targeted in the
action because of a front-page
article in The Confidential
Source, a local scandal-sheet
which specialises in attacks on
the PLP government.
The article depicted Turner
as a crook, and cast venomous
aspersions on his past. As a
result, Turner sued for $5 mil-
lion, an action which quickly
evaporated when the rogue
trader was taken into custody
by the FBI.
What now for the dynamic
but discredited Turner, a man
for whom the world does not
turn fast enough?
Firstly, he will have to get
used to life in a high-security
cell. At the moment this super-
charged villain is in a New York
correctional facility, victim of
an FBI sting operation involving
a former grifter called Barry
Minkow. That's where he is

likely to stay at least until 2012.
Minkow, who served seven
years after orchestrating a mul-
ti-million dollar carpet-cleaning
scam, foxing a string of very
unhappy mobsters in the
process, followed the same path
as many other crooks by
becoming an evangelical min-
ister with a mission to unmask
others like him.
Though Turner challenged
Minkow's methods, and hoped
to base his defence on the
preacher's alleged chicanery, he
finally dodged a 20-year jail
term by cutting a deal with the
Feds which reduced his likely
sentence to six or seven years.
Inside prison, it's conceivable

Harajchi, owner of
Suisse Security
Bank and Trust,
was targeted in the
action because of a
front-page article
in The Confidential
Source, a local
whicd specalises
in attacks on the
PIP government."

he will follow Minkow's path to
spiritual redemption.
In a 2002 interview with The
Tribune, Turner depicted him-
self as a very religious man.
"I start my day with a prayer
and finish with a prayer," he
said, "I read a chapter from the
Bible every day when I finish
trading because while I have my
trading hat on, it's a kill or be
killed scenario. The Bible,
therefore, is my inspirational
source for life."

He added: "I am a servant in
my belief and I have a role to
play in that belief. I would like
to live to be 128 years of age."
According to court docu-
ments, Turner's religious beliefs
did not run to compassion for
his fellow men.
He allegedly swindled a
father-and-son out of a million
dollars by claiming he had a
$500 million hedge fund. In fact,
the fund contained just
$300,000. A total of 30 unsus-
pecting innocents fell foul of his
fraudulent schemes.
A Nassau associate said:
"Turner is an oily chancer with
a plausible manner who preys
on people with rash promises
of high returns.
"He uses his undoubted
knowledge of the markets to
sweet-talk the gullible and the
greedy to part with their money.
All round, a jail cell is probably
the best place for him."
From gold neck-chains to pig-
iron ankle chains is a long drop
for the Kiwi conman as he shuf-
fles back and forth from the
prison commissary to his place
of confinement.
From Paradise Island to state
penitentiary never figured in his
career pattern, but it has now
become the solemn reality for a
man who was always less than
he seemed.
Meanwhile, as he ponders life
from behind bars, he will glean
little joy from the jubilation of
his old rival Harajchi, who no
doubt feels vindicated now that
Turner is locked away.
Yesterday, there was no reply
from Harajchi's gated Paradise
Island mansion, but the chor-
tles and chuckles of Turner's
implacable foe are not hard to

Emancipation from slavery

IN THIS column last
week, we dealt with the
topic The Institution of Slav-
ery. In that article, we stated
how the growing discontent
with slavery had resulted in the
passage of laws in the British
Parliament at the turn of the
19th century that were
designed to eradicate that
ignoble institution,
In elaborating on the above,
permit us to state how that
growing discontent with slav-
ery had in the waning
decades of the previous cen-
tury spawned an abolitionist
movement in Great Britain,
led by such determined advo-
cates as William Wilberforce
and Thomas Clarkson, and the
London-based, pro-abolitionist
African Institution.
That movement's persistent
agitation led to the passage of
an Act to Abolish the Slave
Trade by the British Parlia-
ment in 1807, and subse-
quently The Emancipation
Act of 1834, that completely
abolished slavery in the British
The 1807 Act that abolished
the slave trade mandated the
Royal Navy to seize any ship
on the high seas that it sus-
pected contained human car-
go bound for slavery. The act
further stipulated that any
materials used in the building
of such a ship (whether even
the nails used in the process)
that were found to be of
British origin, justified such
The seized ships were then
taken to Nassau, where some
of their human cargo was like-
wise off-loaded. The fate of
the ships and cargo seized were
settled in the local Vice-Admi-
ralty Court, and subsequently
auctioned off, with much of the
proceeds sent to Great Britain.
As was also stated in the
conclusion of last week's arti-
cle, some of the human cargo
thus seized was placed in the
"protective custody" of the
Collector of Customs, who
managed the programmes
designed to eventually assimi-
late the freed blacks into soci-
We might further add that
such persons, generally liber-
ated native Africans, were
landed at Nassau and auc-
tioned at the Vendue House
market. This market featured
arched porches that that
opened along the waterfront.
Today, the Pompey Museum
of Slavery and Emancipation
occupies the Vendue House
site, and the reclaimed land
directly behind this is the cur-
rent site of the Nassau Straw
It should be noted that dur-
ing inclement weather, a small
number of liberated slaves
were landed at sites located in
the west of New Providence,
including at Clifton, Lyford
and Old Fort Bay/Char-
lottesville. Most were settled
in a place near Carmichael-
Road called Headquarters and



at newly established commu-
nities at Gambier and Ade-
laide, both of which were
located at respectable dis-
tances from Nassau, but
nonetheless easily accessible
by the controlling elite.
It is said that Headquarters
was located in the general
vicinity of what we now know
as the Parish Church of St
Ambrose. From there, the lib-
erated Africans were
employed as apprenticed
labourers, some of whom
worked alongside slaves on
plantations and in other indus-

African slaves into British ter-
ritories. These legal measures
were followed by what became
known as amelioration
One reform measure that
received much resistance in
The Bahamas was the slave
registry bill. This legislation
was intended as a census on
the numbers, gender and own-
ership of slaves in the colonies.
The law resulted from claims
that planters were smuggling
slaves into the region in viola-
tion of the Abolition Act
(1807). In 1816, Bahamas Gov-

was in these settings that their
assimilation into Bahamian life

One such liberated
African, who landed
in The Bahamas in 1838, was
named Alladay Adderley. An
industrious gentleman, he
became the patriarch of the
Adderley clan of Poinciana
Hill fame, who have given The
Bahamas four generations of
parliamentarians. These were
as follows: William Campbell
Adderley, his son, who it is
reported was the first black
person to be elected to the
House of Assembly. Then,
there was William Parliament
Adderley, his son the late Hon
Alfred F Adderley (after
whom one of our secondary
schools is named), and his son,
the Hon Paul L Adderley, who
likewise served as a member
of the House.
In hindsight, the non-violent
emancipation of slavery in the
British West Indies became a
remarkable feat due to the fact
that this signally historic event
was sandwiched between the
violently bloody Haitian and
American Revolutions.
Emancipation, in essence,
was a deliberate process, which
the British Parliament pursued
in a fairly clandestine fashion.
First, the Colonial Office was
mandated to direct colonies to
pass strict laws enforcing the
ban on the importation of

* ernor Cameron referred to a
report from a select commit-
tee established to investigate
the rationale for the slave reg-
istry ordinance, which noted
that the law punished the
colony for violations commit-
ted by colonists in Trinidad
and St Lucia.
In 1823, the British Colonial
Office introduced several pro-
grammes designed to encour-
age improved conditions for
slaves, in the hope that such
measures would lead to eman-
cipation without Parliament
having to pass additional leg-
For example, it became
mandatory for slave holders to
ensure that their wards
received religious instructions.
Immersion in western religious
instruction was designed to
move the slave one step closer
to European assimilation.
Slave marriages were for the

first time officially recognised.
Continuing, it became ille-
gal to separate slave families
by sale. The use of the whip
against slaves working in the
fields was banned. The flog-
ging of female slaves was
banned. Slave holders were
required to allow their wards
Sundays as a free day to wor-
ship and enjoy. Under certain
conditions, the evidence of
Creole slaves in courts became
admissible. This privilege was
not extended to native
African-born slaves. Most
important, slaves were allowed
to legally own property.
The amelioration period,
designed to gradually phase
out the institution of slavery,
lasted from 1823 to 1833. This
initial measure towards eman-
cipation, however, failed mis-
erably, because of consistent,
widespread resistance from
slave holders, who were
required to free their slaves
without the benefit of com-

When it became
apparent to British
officials that efforts towards
amelioration were ineffective,
Parliament passed the Manu-
mission Act (1833). This leg-
islation was more receptive to
slave holders, because it pro-
vided compensation for eman-
cipation. Colonial legislatures
were directed to pass enabling
legislation no later than
August 1, 1834.
Interestingly, The Bahamas
was the only colony to fully
adopt the entire compulsory
manumission programme that
the British Parliament man-
dated. Once adopted, The
Bahamas became eligible to
receive a part of the budgeted
twenty million pounds sterling
the Parliament provided as
compensation to slave holders
in the British West Indies.
In actuality, the 1,108
Bahamian slave holders
received about 292,135 ster-
ling in compensation. It should
be noted that this average of
12.14s.6d per slave repre-
sented the lowest average of
all the 19 West Indian colonies,
compared with 52 per slave
in British Guiana and 50 per
slave in Trinidad.
By the time the Emancipa-
tion Act of 1834 became law,
there was a significant number
of liberated Africans and freed

slaves living in The Bahamas.
One such liberated African
was Samuel Fox, after whom
the former slave village of Fox
Hill is named. Mr Fox owned a
plantation near what is now St
Augustine's Monastery.

M r Fox acquired his
slaves either by pur-
chasing them from Vendue
House or by securing the ser-
vices of some slaves belonging
to Judge Robert Sandilands,
who owned a larger plantation
east of his and after whom
both Sandilands Village and
Primary School are also
It should be further noted
that the Emancipation Act of
1834 also mandated that there
should be a four-year appren-
ticeship period following its
enactment, during which time
the slaves were t6 be prepared
to exercise their newly
acquired freedom.
Likewise, the slave owners
were afforded this opportunity
of making the psychological
adjustment necessary to enable
them to accept the fact that,
at the expiration of the four-
year apprenticeship period,
their former slaves would then
become British subjects.
Although the Emancipation
Act also made provision for
the payment of reparations to
the slave owners for the sub-
sequent loss of their human
property, two diametrically
opposite events occurred nev-
Firstly, some slave owners
were so incensed over the pro-
visions of this act that they
abandoned their plantations
and refused to take their slaves
through the mandated four-
year apprenticeship period.
Secondly, some slaves had
lost their sense of self-worth,
their confidence and their
innate sense of independence -
becoming virtually dependent
upon their masters in the
process. Thus, out of fear of
being unable to survive in lib-
eration, they were somewhat
reluctant to accept their new
freedom. This natural tenden-
cy is borne out in the following

feed and water it for a few
, days, then open the cage. The
bird will quickly fly away.
Catch that same bird, put it in
a cage, feed and water it for

six months, then open the door
of the cage. The bird would be
reluctant to come out, because
its long incarceration and hav-
ing been cared for during the
same would have stripped it of
its confidence in surviving oth-.
Thus, we celebrated Eman-
cipation Day 2005 on August 1
- the 171st or 167th anniver-
sary of that historic event,
depending on whether one
accepts 1834 or 1838 as the
date of the ultimate abolition
of slavery in these islands.
In so doing, let us thank God
for the many sacrifices our
ancestors made in that abhor-
rent institution, thereby mak-
ing it possible for us their
descendants to now be the
masters of our own fate in this
former land of their enslave-

In last week's column, when
we dealt with the topic The
Institution of Slavery, we inad-
vertently stated that in 1492
Columbus discovered land in
this region by travelling east
from Spain. That direction
should have been west, and the
entire paragraph ought to have
read thus:
"The Spanish investment in
Columbus' voyage to discover
a new route to India was made
mainly in the hope of possibly
finding new sources of gold,
silver and other precious
stones. As none of these com-
modities was found in The
Bahamas, it is 'recorded that
Columbus spent only 14 days
in these islands. However, he
did take a few of the Lucayan
Indians he found here back to
Spain with him as evidence to
prove that he had discovered
land in this area by traveling
west, thereby destroying the
previously held myth that the
earth was flat."

back to New Zealand. He is unlikely to be part of the Bahamas
scene again."
Turner, who sprang to prominence three years ago
with his $5 billion plan to rebuild the World Trade Cen-
tre in New York, cut a deal with the FBI, settling for a
six or seven-year jail term in return for a guilty plea.
At the moment, he is in a New York correctional
facility awaiting formal sentencing on September 16.
During court hearings, it was claimed Turner had
amassed enough money to buy five properties worth
nearly $20 million when he arrived in Nassau in 2000.
He was arrested last April after an FBI sting operation
revealed that he was using his Bahamas-based Turning
International Ltd to defraud investors.
At first he denied running a phony hedge fund, but he
later changed his plea to guilty to avoid a 20-year
Turner was caught by former fraudster Barry Minkow,
who since serving a seven-year jail term has become
an evengelical minister and anti-fraud agent.
Minkow, who posed as an investor during the opera-
tion, said Turner's associates visited his 1,300-member
congregation in San Diego to ensure he had enough
collateral to invest.
Turner promoted the business by telling investors
that the company invested in securities in US markets.
He claimed it generated a 37 per cent profit and con-
trolled $300 million, according to The New Zealand
However, the court heard the company did not invest
in securities, never generated a profit and controlled
only $1.5 million.
Mr Minkow said he was tipped off by an attorney
whose clients had been promised returns of 38 per cent
a month.
Turner claimed he had been averaging that for eight.
The FBI sent two undercover men to the Bahamas
with Mr Minkow as he posed as an investor with $2
million to deposit. Turner showed proof of investors
around the world.
Turner arrived in Nassau after being told by Aus-
tralian authorities to shut down a similar scheme
because he did not have a licence.
Mr Minkow told The New Zealand Herald: "The next
step for him will be victim repayment. There are some
people who don't care how much time you serve, they
just need their money back."

family had been approved for

Still another said that after
sprinkling the water on her car
keys she was given a bill of sale

Ms Turnquest explained that there are many
reasons why persons resort to abusing their chil-
dren. She pointed out that contributing factors
range from persons being frustrated to those hav-
ing low self-esteem, However, she stressed that
the breakdown in the family is a major con-
tributing factor.
The breakdown comes when some parents are
not communicating and working together as a
team, in which "the children will ultimately suf-
fer," she said.
If children who have been abused do not
receive professional help, Ms Turnquest said they
stand a very good chance of repeating the same
abuse with their children.
Ms Turnquest told The Tribune that in her line
of duty one of the challenges she faces is con-

Senior Sports Reporter
HELSINKI, Finland: In a bizarre
twist of events, American Angela
Daigle unintentionally hit Chandra
Sturrup while passing the baton to
her team-mate Muna Lee. The rest
was history for the Bahamas.
The team of Timicka Clarke,
Sturrup, Sevatheda Fynes and
Philippa Arnett-Willie never got
to make an exchange in the first
heat of the women's 4x100 metre
relays Friday night at the Olympic
Stadium as a berth in today's final
at the 10th IAAF World Champi-
onships went up in smoke.

Sturrup, the savvy veteran of the
Bahamian team, eventually got-up
from the hit and tumbled over by
the. time Timicka Clarke reached
with the baton.. Clarke ran right
past her, avoiding a collision.
When she got up holding her

the rescue, putting an ice pack on it
as they whisked her off the track
through the side tunnel.
Sevatheda Fynes and Philippa
Arnett-Willie, who waited on the
third and anchor leg, could only
watch in bewilderment. Fynes
rushed over to join Clarke to check
out their team-mate before they
came back on the track and
through the tunnel in the mixed
zone to meet the press.
Still stunned when she came off
the field, Clarke said, from her vin-
tage point, she only remembered
getting to Sturrup to give her the
baton when she slipped.
"I was about to give her the

baton as she was taking off," she
said. "When I just saw her slip and
fall, so I get out the way."
It was a heartbreaker, but Fynes
said "things happen and there's
nothing we could do about it. I
realised that something happened,
so I really got concerned."
Team manager Ralph McKinney
immediately lodged a protest. But,
after reviewing the replay for more
than a hour and a half,'McKinney
said the protest was ejected.

HELSINKI, Finland: A
fourth place finish in a person-

of Avard Moncur's national
record of 44.45, was the best
that Chris Brown could man-
age in the men's 400 metre final
at the 10th IAAF World Chain-
All things considered, it was a
remarkable performance. He
had to do it out of lane eight

American Olympic champion
Jeremy Eariner, waiting on the
right opportunity to surge from

their feet cheering at the
Olympic Stadium Friday night.

Competing in his first major
international final, Brown stuck
to his game plan, which was to
take it out hard. In fact. he led
the final race on day nine of the
championships until the final
150 mark.
That was when he was
caught. By the time the field
got off the final bend, it was

But Wariner took over; just
as he did in Athens, Greece last
year, surging ahead of the pack
to win in 43.93, the world's
fastest time this year. Andrew
Rock, feeding off Brown in lane
seven, managed to pull through
for the silver in a personal best
of 44.35.

spot out of the heat.

While neither Daigle or Lee
commented, but Sturrup's train-

But having to run from the

"I knew the race was going to

With just the men's 4 x 400
left to go, Brown said he feels
that the Bahamas has an excel-

"We just have to come out

nobody will give it to you just

"You have to come out here

Senior Sports
HELSINKI, Finland: At
age 40, Lavern Eve contin-
ues to impress herself. On
Friday, she impressed a lot
of other people too at, the
10th IAAF World Champi-
onships when she made the
final of the women's javelin.
On her third and final
throw .in the qualifying
round of Group B, Eve
came up with her best mark
of 200-feet, 6-inches, just
above the 200-5 3-4 that
enabled her to win the Col-
inalmperial Senior Central
American and Caribbean
Championships' gold medal
in Nassau in July, to get into
Sunday's final.
About the throw that
sealed the deal for her, Eve
said "I've been in this posi-
tion before, so, maybe, let's
see what's going to happen
now. I just had to go out
and try to execute, try to get
one in."
Despite the bad weather
that has plagued the cham-
pionships in Helsinki, the
sun started to shine as Eve
entered the arena.

Eve said everybody was
hoping for some good
weather, but, she said, "If
it rained, we all would have
had to throw in the rain. So
we would all be throwing
under the same conditions.
"So in my mind, from a
few days ago, I was saying
that I had to throw in the

With a day's rest, Eve will
have more time to prepare
for the final, which she
called "very interesting" as
25-year-old Olympic cham-
pion and world record hold-
er Osleidys Menedez from
Cuba needed just one throw
in qualifying from Group B
with a toss of 215-9 1-2.
In the group featuring
Eve, Menedez' team-mate
Sonia Bisset, 34, qualified
with 211-7 on her first throw
as well. But before the mark
could stay up as the best,
Germany's Olympic silver
medalist Steffi Nerius, 33,
came through with the best
mark of the day, a personal

best of 218-3 to clinch the
top qualifying spot.
The Cubans would occupy
second and third and Eve
would wind up in fifth
behind 23-year-old Ger-
many's Christina Obergfol-
l's mark of 202-0 1.2.
Eve knows that she can
be in the mix arid even pos-

behind it.

it, but I know I had to get
