Claim some police
By KARAN MINNIS

MEMBERS of the Royal
Bahamas Police Force unit were
involved in an altercation over
the weekend, while visiting Har-
hour Island, Eleuthera.
Yesterday it was alleged that
some persons, believed to be
police officers, had been "drink-
ing and acting wildly right
before the altercation began."
On Thursday police officials
confirmed that an undisclosed
number of officers had gone to
Harbour Island over the week-
end, but could not verify if an
altercation had occurred.
However, speaking to The
Tribune yesterday, Harbour
Island residents explained that
the altercation involving one of
the officers and a local resident
occurred under the "big tent", a
local grouping spot.
"Well what happened was
that the officers were up and
about having a few drinks and
driving around. They then
stopped under the big tent
where local residents usually
hang out, and one of the officers
got into a fight with a fellow
from here," said a resident.
"When the other officers and
some residents from around
here realized what was happen-
ing they grouped around and
words were exchanged."
Another resident said that
Eleuthera's local police officers
were called to the scene to deal
with the situation.

Murder accused pleads
for 'some place safe'
Claims life would be in danger in prison
By NATARIO MCKENZIE
ONE of the two Fox Hill men charged with a murder that
occurred in that community some three years ago pleaded with
a local magistrate yesterday to send him to "some place safe" as
his life would be endangered if he were .sent to prison.
Deslin Nicholls, 22, told Magistrate Renee McKay that he and
23-year-old Randino Pratt had received threats while in police
custody and that persons were "waiting" for them in jail. He
asked Magistrate McKay to send them to "some place safe"
however the magistrate told him that she only had authority

SUPREME Court Justice
Jon Isaacs ruled against the
habeas corpus application of
Dwight and Keva Major yes-
The application was based
on the fact that the Majors felt
they were being unlawfully
Their lawyer Michael Kemp,
assisted by Donna Major, pre-
sented numerous grounds to the
court, and yesterday, Justice
Isaacs rejected each one.
The Majors have been
detained for more than two
years at the request of the Unit-
ed States which has moved to
have them extradited to the US
to answer drug charges in
Those charges include con-
spiracy to possess and import
marijuana and cocaine.
The US alleges that the hus-
band and wife were involved in
a drug conspiracy between
August 2002 and January 2003.
They produced transcripts of
phone calls they intercepted as
evidence that they want to use
to convict the Majors.
Justice Isaacs ruled against
Mr Kemp's submission that the
failure of the prosecution to
provide them with documents
to assist them in the develop-
ment of their case was unlawful.
However in the case of
Lemuel Gibson, the judge ruled
that such non-disclosure did
affect the defence's case.
Justice Isaacs also ruled
against Mr Kemp's application

WITH the three leading oil
companies in the US being
investigated for "record setting
profits" in the last business
quarter, Bahamians suffering
,from high fuel costs are now
questioning the profits of the
three local oil conglomerates,
Shell, Esso, and Texaco.
In the US, Exxon Mobil
(Esso) grossed $10 billion in
profits over the last three
months; an American record,
and pulled in $100 billion in rev-
enue which also is a record
by US standards.
Royal Dutch/Shell took the
second spot, earning $9.2 bil-
lion in profits, an increase of 68
per cent over its last quarter.
Chevron Texaco was up 53 per
cent over its last quarter profits,
earning $7.4 billion for the last
As a result the US Congress
has called for an examination
of gasoline prices in the US, and
a special committee to investi-
gate if the companies have been
"price gouging" the public.
In some reports, the profits
of Exxon Mobil ($10 billion for
their last quarter) exceeded the
Gross Domestic Product (GDP)
of Kuwait and Dubai combined;
countries from which the com-
panies actually derive their oil.
In Florida, the mark up of
three cents per gallon by the oil
companies is small compared
to the 33 cents charged by Shell,
Texaco, and Esso as importers
in the Bahamas.
The Bahamas' small annual
consumption of 255 million gal-
lons of fuel cannot be compared

Bahamas warned: no
bird flu vaccine exists
By PAUL G TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
WITH fears that the deadly
Avian influenza or "bird flu"
could reach the Bahamas, offi-
cials in the Ministry of Health
are warn that the best course
of action is prevention as no
known vaccine is available to
combat the virus.
With cases of birdIflu appear-
ing in countries as near to the
Bahamas as Canada, Minister
of Health Dr Marcus Bethel
spoke with The Tribune yester-
day about what Bahamians
need to know about the disease.
Dr Bethel explained that the
most disastrous development
would be for the virus to mutate
and be transmitted from human
"Currently there is no vac-
cine available, and only a gen-
eral anti-viral medication is
being stockpiled (Tamiflu)
which is not specific to the bird
flu. It is a broad-based medica-
tion that may, or may not even,
have an effect on the virus."
"There is no magic bullet
about this. We have to do the
basics: prevention, prevention,
Since December 2003, 122
cases of H5N1 Avian Influenza
have been reported in humans,
with 62 of these resulting in
death. Most human cases have
been traced to direct contact
with infected birds, but experts
worry the virus could mutate
and become easily transmissi-
ble between humans.
With such a disease in the
US, and throughout the "mod-
ern world", a worldwide pan-
demic could erupt within just
months. In 1918, before air trav-
el allowed persons to navigate
the globe in a matter of hours,
the "Spanish flu" pandemic
killed an estimated 50 million
With this new virus, experts
estimate, the figure could reach
as high as 200 million.
US President George Bush
has asked congress for $7.1 bil-
lion to prepare for the global
epidemic that experts in the US
consider to be imminent.
However, Dr Bethel
explained that the majority of
the $ 7.1 billion dollars is being
used by the US develop a vac-
cine; after which they hope to
purchase 20 million vaccines.
"So that's 20 million vaccines
for 300 million Americans. So
until this virus has mutated into
a human transmittable state,
then research can be done to
find a cure.
"But the worse case for the
whole world would be for this
virus to mutate; and it is cer-
tainly possible for it to mutate -
that is what they can do with
great facility but whether it
happens is a different story.
"But because there is no
available vaccine that is the
cause of the fear," he said.

other side of the divide. So

graph continues," he said.

However, late yesterday
afternoon President Bush
called President Chavez a

that he was responsible for a
violent riot that broke out in

said: "The city is like an

For our sake,
EDITOR, The Tribune
I TAKE this time from a very
busy schedule to write this let-
I have read with great interest
the letters to the Editor of
November 1, 2, 3 and 4.
It is about time that some of
our honest Bahamians admit
the accomplishments of Hubert
Alexander Ingraham during his
ten years in office.
It is very unfortunate that the
voting public of The Bahamas
has decided that they do not
want and will not support Tom-
This however is not the
responsibility of Mr Ingraham.
This is because the public at
large feels like Tommy is not
one of them and cannot get
down to their level to be one of
For about four to six months
now there has been a move-
ment to bring Mr Ingraham
back. From what I have seen in
the media it does not appear
that Mr Ingraham has had any-
thing to do with this other than
listen to the people who are cry-
ing to him everywhere he goes
for him to come back and save
They are crying because they
know that the only hope for this
country to be rescued is with
Mr Ingraham as the Leader.
We have reached a sad state
of affairs when the Hon Prime
Minister with all of the prob-
lems facing him and his gov-
ernment is prepared to waste
almost an entire session of Par-
liament talking about who
should or should not be the
Leader of the FNM.
This only indicates to the
public that there is only one
MAN in The Bahamas that the
PLP are afraid of. The public
must realize that Mr Ingraham
has done his service to our
country and if he decides not
to come back then no one can
blame him for this.
However, those of us who are
of a Christian belief need to
pray to God for Mr Ingraham to
decide to come back and save
our country, even though it
would be at a great personal
I, for one have nightmares.
when I think about the PLP,,
being in power for another five
years. There is no telling how
bad off we will be if the previ-,
ous 3 1/2 years are any measur-
ing stick to go by. -
I, therefore beg the powers,
that be in the FNM to do what-
ever it takes to get Tommy to
realize that he is still a young
man and with Mr Ingraham in
charge he would have five years
to do his public relations'and
convince the Bahamian public
that he does not think he is betn
ter than them and he can get
down to their level and associ-
ate with them.
Mr Ingraham, sir, for the sake
of our children and future gen-
erations to come, please give
some serious consideration ito

EDITOR, The Tribune
I READ with amazement in
this morning's Tribune, Leslie
Miller's remarks in response to
Senator Turnquest. Is Mr Miller
seriously suggesting that Sir
Orville Turnquest was crifmi-
nally involved with Robert
Vesco and Carlos Lehder? The
level of debate in Parliament
has truly reached the sewer
when attacks of this sort, com-
mitted from a position of privi-
lege, are permitted by the
Speaker of the House and the
Senator Turnquest's remarks
regarding Mr Miller were issued
publicly so why is it that Mr
Miller finds it necessary to
respond from the Floor of the
House? This smacks of cow-
ardice on the part of Mr Miller.
Further if he, Mr Miller, feels so
strongly about it why doesn't
he engage Senator Turnquest
in open public debate? The
Prime Minister, obviously, 'has
no control over this man; h& is a
bull who carries his own china
shop around with him and must
truly be a serious embarrass-
ment to the Government.' '
This incident, added to the
already long lidt of debacles
involving Mr Miller, begs the
question: "Who is in charge;1

Bahamas, and that any person who knows any reason why
registration/ naturalization should not be granted, should send a
written and signed statement of the facts within twenty-eight days
from the 5TH day of NOVEMBER, 2005 to the Minister responsible

The fact that my opponent
acknowledged this by taking a
sabbatical paid or unpaid -
after these acts were pointed
out in the press and brought to
the attention of the Minister
responsible, speaks for itself.
I clearly stated my case but
it fell on deaf ears. However,
to the victor goes the spoils and
I wish her the best. It is'imy
opinion that the country knows
that I have the best interest of
the game at hand and if the

be of any assistance, then they
can feel free to call on me.

responsibility 'is yours'
MP urges Bahamians not
to rely on government
By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Staff Reporter
BAHAMIANS must take
responsibility for their own lev-
el of disaster preparedness
according to John Carey.
He said that it is not govern-
ment's responsibility to pick up
the slack when persons refuse to
do what they are legally
required to do.
Mr Carey, who is the parlia-
mentary secretary in the Min-
istry of Works, told MPs that
while personal responsibility is
absolutely essential in this
regard, it is an area Bahamians
take for granted.
"To expect more from the
government without doing
more on a personal level or liv-
ing up to one's personal respon-
sibility is to want and encourage
slackness," he said.
Mr Carey made the remarks
during his contribution to the
debate on the Bahamas Disas-
ter Preparedness Bill in the
House of Assembly on Wednes-
A 25-year-old female
employee of the First
Caribbean Bank's Paradise
Island branch appeared in the
Magistrate's Court to answer
to charges of stealing over
$30,000 by reason of employ-
It was alleged that Turkessa
Deleveaux stole from the bank
on Wednesday May 4, Thurs-
day May 26, Monday May 30,
Friday July 1, Monday July 6
and Friday July 8.
Deleveaux, who appeared
before Magistrate Susan
Sylvester at Court 11 in Nassau
Street, was represented by
lawyer Ian Cargill.
She pleaded not guilty to the
charge and was granted $5,000
The matter was adjourned
to March 16, 2006.
In lending his support to the
bill, Mr Carey said government
must challenge people to do
more to assist themselves, par-
ticularly in the face of natural
"Many people are aware of
the potential disasters we face in
the Bahamas and in this region,
such as hurricanes, flooding, etc,
but awareness is not prepared-
"Preparedness begins only
when people act. We as a gov-
ernment cannot prevent natur-
al disasters. We can only pre-
pare for it if and when it hap-
According to Mr Carey, pre-
paredness.puts the country in a
better position to rebound after
He added that there has to
be more disaster management
training for government per-
sonnel, and a more disaster
"We have heard major
investors speak of their disap-
pointment in the airports and
its adverse impact on the
tourism product. We need to
have sturdy and good airports
that are able to withstand hur-
ricanes and be available in times
of emergency and that are aes-
thetically pleasing to comple-
ment the tourism product. Why
should an investor spend mil-
lions of dollars in the Bahamas
when our infrastructure is inad-
equate and we are unable to
protect his customers in times of
Mr Carey added that person-
al responsibility also applies to
the way Bahamians maintain
their property and surround-
This, he said is a point that is
constantly raised in his
Carmichael constituency, which
has a serious graffiti problem.
"The graffiti is on private
property, Flamingo Gardens
Clinic wall, and Gerald Cash
Primary School wall and
throughout the neighborhood.
This nonsense has to stop. How
many more gallons of paint
must I dispatch to the area to
remove the graffiti off the wall?
"If we want a better commu-
nity we must stop these hood-
lums from destroying our prop-
erties and bringing down the
value of the neighbourhood,"

at a mark up of 33 cents per gallon translates

However, Vincent Coleby, chairman of gov-
ernment's Fuel Usage Committee said that the
local oil companies (Shell, Esso, and Texaco) do
not make a "large profit" as most of the money is
still transferred overseas to their head offices.
"Those billions are an aggregate of all their
stations over the world, most of them being in the

An anxious crowd stood outside the courts
on Bank Lane yesterday, moving to Parliament
Street chanting "freedom is a must", as murder
accused Deslin Nicholls and Randino Pratt were
escorted to court shortly after 2pm yesterday.
The pair was discovered on board a Haitian
sailboat on Monday with 38 undocumented
Haitians who were attempting to land in the
Bahamas. The men, who are both thought to be
of Haitian descent, were turned over to police
officials at Mathew Town, Inagua.. They were
then brought to New Providence. The men had
been wanted by police since 2002 for questioning
in connection with the murder of Warren Kirk

"90" Knowles and Saddam Hussein will prejudice
the possibility of a fair trial in the US.
However, Justice Hugh Small had ruled in
favour of Knowles' lawyers when they presented
such arguments to the court.
Mr Kemp had also submitted in earlier pro-
ceedings that US drug officers who were in an
OPBAT helicopter at the time when the drugs,
alleged to belong to Major were seized, said they
were seized in the Bimini area. Mr Kemp ques-
tioned, then, why his clients are being sought
for extradition at all.
Justice Isaacs also ruled that statements made
by Mr Bradley Roberts and alleged statements by
Magistrate Carolita Bethel about hits being placed
on them by the accused would not affect their
Mr Kemp also brought to the court's attention
that while Broward County listed five offences on
their indictment sheet against the accused, the
magistrate committed them only on three.
Therefore, he said, the "face of the committal"
While the judge admitted to the defect in the
committal, he referred to it as "technical", with-
out much weight on the alleged offences.
The decision, however, does not mean that
extradition proceedings against the pair will go
forth, because their lawyers now plan to take
their argument that the constitutional rights of
their clients have been violated, to a higher court.
Dwight Major, said Mr Kemp, remains in a
solitary confinement cell with extra bolts, locks
and steel plates, which was designed for punish-
ment only and for temporary purposes.
Keva Major, he said, is a mother of four,
whom he feels has not been implicated by the
intercepted telephone conversations nor the coop-
erating US witnesses.

doing quite well, despite the fact that their figures
are not released to the public," he said.
Mr Coleby explained that one of the largest
single factors in the cost of fuel locally is an "inter-
mediary" or agent of the oil company who pur-'
chases fuel, predominately from Curaqao,
Venezuela, and resells it back to the oil company
at an "unknown" margin.
"That is a substantial component of the price
build up for the resulting price at the pumps. The
intermediary purchases the fuel from the refinery
and then sells it to the oil company, and this same
trading entity is owned by the oil company that
they are selling to," he said.
According to court dockets on Monday, Feb-
ruary 25, 2002, the men, being concerned with
others by means of unlawful harm, are accused of
causing the death of Warren Kirk Ferguson.
Ferguson, who was 30 years old at the time of
his death, was reportedly gunned down in broad
daylight outside Sandilands Primary School, Fox
Hill. At the time it was thought that he was the
victim of retaliatory measures taken for incidents
in which he was allegedly involved.
Nicholls and Pratt were not required to plead
to the charges. They were informed by the mag-
istrate that her court had no authority to grant bail
in the matter although they could make an appli-
cation to the Supreme Court.
The case was adjourned to February 15, 2006,
