BACK with "vigour, determination, thoughtfulness
and purpose" newly-elected leader Hubert Ingraham
declared last night that the government has squan-
dered the goodwill of their victory and nearly four-
fifths of their term in power and therefore "must go."
"In three and a half years in office our opponents
have demonstrated that they prefer pomp and cere-
mony and form over substance. I have never known so
many people who define themselves and their impor-
tance by the trappings of their office," said Mr Ingra-
The former prime minister promised that under an
FNM government, Bahamian children will be taught to
learn in school, young people will be trained to assume
meaningful positions in the economy, the Bahamas'
borders will be better protected from illegal immi-
grants and poachers and policemen will leave school
grounds and return to "the beat" as dedicated teachers
and security guards will adequately police schools and

the convention to thundering applause.

THE FNM officially unveiled
"Perry Christie's worst nightmare"
as newly elected leader Hubert
Ingraham foreshadowed some key
appointments at the party conven-
tion last night.
Mr Ingraham said that former
leader Tommy Turnquest will main-
tain his leadership position in the
Senate and one of his first appoint-
ments will be that of Carl Bethel to
He also promised that Mr Bethel
and leadership hopeful Dion
Foulkes will be assured places of
responsibility in his administration.
Before Mr Ingraham launched into
his speech last night, he had a major
surprise in store for the gathering, as
he called former PLP senator Edi-
son Key to join him up on stage.
Presenting a united front, Mr
Ingraham moved aside and let Mr
Key take the microphone as deaf-
ening applause rocked the hall.
The former senator recalled the
time 27 years ago when both he and
Mr Ingraham ran for a seat in Aba-
co for the first time in their respec-
tive political careers.

VISA scandal allegations made against
the government by FNM chairman Carl
Bethel have been dismissed by Foreign
Affairs Minister Fred Mitchell.
He said an alleged visa racket outlined
by Mr Bethel was a "retread" of some-
thing dealt with some time ago.
Mr Bethel's remarks at the FNM con-
vention were, said Mr Mitchell, "a
retread of well-worn allegations which
were answered by the ministry at the
time they veki originally made by the

OFFICIALS at the Ministry of
Social Services have appealed for
help in locating relatives of a baby
abandoned at Princess Margaret
Hospital in July.
The ministry's placement division
ran an advertisement in the business
section of The Tribune asking for
anyone knowing relatives of the baby
to contact them as soon as possible.
However, the ministry said it would
be unethical to discuss the case.
Although the baby was aban-
doned, it is not considered to be a
criminal offence because it was left in
Hospital officials said the baby is
not in the maternity ward any longer.
This suggests the child was probably
released to the Department of Social
Services. It is unclear when or if the
baby will be placed for adoption.

Speaking with The Tribune yesterday, Robert
Sands, Baha Mar's executive vice-president of
administration and public relations, said devel-
opers will spend an additional $50 million to
renovate the Radisson Cable Beach Resort.
Mr Sands said that $15 million was slated for
the initial upgrades of the Nassau Beach Hotel,
the Wyndham Nassau Resort and Crystal Palace
He explained that $12 million had already
been used for casino upgrades, principally at
"Those renovations are almost complete, and
most of the $15 million has already been invest-

THREE bodies found floating off the
Florida coast are thought to be women
who left the Bahamas in an attempt to
enter the US only to be forced into the
sea by a crew of human smugglers.
The bodies were discovered by US
authorities. The identity and nationality
of the alleged smugglers is not known.
According to The Miami Herald, the
women belonged to a group of illegal
immigrants, some of whom had lived in
the Bahamas for more than five years.
It is believed the group set off from
Nassau on Friday night in a 19-foot sail-
Around 4.30am on Saturday, one of
the smugglers forced everyone out into
the choppy waters, the report said.

EDITOR, The Tribune
One of the basic fundamen-
tal rights enshrined in the Con-
stitution of the Bahamas is that
of freedom of expression. To
speak your opinion freely with-
out fear or favour is your God-
given right under the Consti-
Historically, such basic rights
were not too often exercised as
intimidation by those in author-
ity of outright punishment for
persons promoting a contrast-
ing and opposing point of view
was a realistic possibility. That
was the order of the day.
The bi-weekly tabloid, The
Punch has been one of those
Institutions bold enough to
voice its opinion, even when
such expressions were publicly
condemned. The Punch has
done much to expose crooked
politicians, cheating spouses,
immoral preachers and greedy
drug dealers, etc. It has gained
the reputation for its honesty
and objectivity when it came
to reporting events or people
of interest to the public. The
old saying that "wherever there
is smoke, there is fire" must
have had The Punch in mind
when it was written.
However, with such freedom
comes the duty of responsibili-
ty. Having the freedom to say
whatever you wish about
whomever you wish doesn't
exist in a vacuum but has its
tangible limits. Established
rules, written or unwritten, or
adopted conventions general-
ly governs what is an accept-
able freedom of expression in a
civilized and democratic soci-
ety. Certain things are consid-
ered sacred or taboo. This is
understood by all parties con-
cerned. Even in war, the Gene-
va Convention dictates the
behaviour of the warring par-
ties. When innocent bystanders
and persons unjustly or mali-
ciously attacked for selfish rea-
sons, the end result could be a
liability action suit against the
maker of such statements. A
person's freedom of expression
cannot come at the expense of
denying that freedom to anoth-
er. When this happens, the thin
line between constitutional
rights and abuse of those rights
is crossed. At times, even The
Punch is guilty of this.
A few weeks ago on its front
page, The Punch ran a story
indicating that Chantel Bethel,
wife of Health Minister, Dr.
Marcus Bethel is a Haitian.
This revelation came amidst a
controversy where Dr Bethel

refuted claims as to the per-
centage of babies being born
to Haitian parents at the
nation's health facilities.
First of all, this revelation
was anything but exclusive as
everyone on Grand Bahama is
aware of the facts of Chantel
Bethel's heritage. Further-
more, Dr Bethel is the Minister
of Health and not the Minister
of Immigration. His primary
duty is to ensure the good
health of all persons in the
Bahamas, irrespective of their
nationality or their ability to
Remember when Prime Min-
ister Hubert Ingraham had
questioned lunch subsidies at
a school in the Lewis Yard area
several years ago when it was
discovered that the majority of
recipients were Haitians? The
requirement for this service is
poverty and not national ori-
gin. Statistics such as morbidity,
mortality, various diseases, etc,
that indicate the health of the
nation does not discriminate or
categorize based on a person's
nationality Therefore, for a
nation trying to achieve first
world status by 2020, the health
of the nation affects the wealth
of the nation.
Emphasising the Haitian
angle has a more profound sig-
nificance. The Bahamas has a
long history of discrimination
against Haitians. For the most
part, Haitians have been treat-
ed as second class with only the
menial jobs reserved for them.
This was the situation that
existed in South Africa under
apartheid where blacks were
treated in a similar fashion, the
only difference being the fact
that blacks in South Africa had
to carry a special ID card.
Because of this similarity, I
challenged the Bahamas's qual-
ification to host the Common-
wealth Heads of Government
Meeting (CHOGM) in 1985 as
the main item on the agenda
was the apartheid situation in
South Africa. How could the
Bahamas host such a meeting
when the same system of
apartheid existed in the
Bahamas? How hypocritical!
A sore point for many
Bahamians is the fact that
many Bahamians feel Haitians
are a burden to the Bahamian
taxpayer as they use the
Bahamas social, educational,
medical services, etc, to the
point where they should be
denied such services. No con-
sideration is given for the con-
tributions that Haitians make
to the Bahamian economy.
From farming to tourism,
Haitians have been exploited
as cheap labour without the
benefits and protections afford-
ed to other Workers in the
This unjust situation is not
unique to the Bahamas. Just
look at the proposed Proposi-
tion 87 that was put to a refer-
endum in California several
years ago. Had it passed, chil-
dren of illegal immigrants
would not be able to attend
public schools, clinics etc. This
is despite the fact that their par-
ents are the ones who do the
backbreaking hard work in tox-
ic filled pesticide farms to maih-
tain the largest and most suc-
cessful agricultural econoniy'in
the world, one that the state of
California benefits frto.n
As for Mrs Chantel Bethel,
anyone who knows her will tell
you that she is a first class lady
with an impeccable character.
She has participated in the
Grand Bahama community by
lending a helping hand' o
almost every charitable orga-
nization that I am aware of and
has done so for years.
Her reputation as a kind, cr-
ing and generous person gpes
without saying. In her profes-
sional capacity as an aspiring
artist, she has represented the
Bahamas both locally and
abroad. Her patriotic commit-
ment to the Bahamas is beyond
question. Clearly, Chanrel
Bethel is a Bahamian first, with

Woman reduced to begging
after hit-and-run acciden,
A MIDDLE-AGED American
woman claims a run of bad luck has
brought her to the brink of destitution in
a society -which has turned its back on
The woman, Patricia Freed, who has
lived in Nassau since 1997, said she has
been reduced to begging for water from
restaurants and eating ketchup from
plastic sachets in fast-food outlets.
"I even look at trash cans differently
nowadays," said Ms Freed, a 52-year-
old architecture graduate who claims a
hit-and-run accident six years ago
changed her life.
"From being a middle-class person
with a good family background and high
expectations, I have been reduced to
this," she said as she faced another day
bathing in the sea and walking the streets.
Claiming she had lost $250,000 in pay,
legal costs and medical fees over the last
few years, Ms Freed said: "The only
thing I haven't lost is my sense of
humour. I haven't sold my body yet.
Who would want it anyway?"
Ms Freed said the road accident left
her on the brink of death. Since then a
prolonged legal case had failed to resolve
the matter in her favour.
A few weeks ago, she claimed, a mug-
ger knocked her unconscious in a Nassau
street and made off with what little cash
The only thing between her and skid
row, she says, is a free room offered her
by a young couple living on an estate.
"If I lost that, I would literally become
a street person, walking around all day
begging for money. Even now, I try to
persuade jitney drivers to take pity on
"I have lost 40 pounds since I started
walking around all the time. It is exhaust-
ing and I go to bed hungry every night."
Twice-divorced Ms Freed says she has
Bahamian status, but injuries received in
the mugging had made it difficult for her
to get a job. She said events had somehow
turned against her, leaving her "literally
penniless" with no means of support.
"It shows how easy it is for someone
who seems to have everything to sud-
denly find themselves out on the streets,"
Ms Freed said she has approached the
US Embassy, several leading politicians
and many churches for help. But all had
Now she relies for sustenance on a
Salvation Army soup kitchen and what-
ever she can pick up free in fast-food
"I ask for a glass of water and then
empty a sachet or two of sugar into it,"
she says. "If I'm really lucky, I get a twist
of lemon. But I'm not sure how much
longer I can go on like this." t
Describing herself as friendless with no
family but a mother in the United States
who she doesn't want to worry and a
brother who is bankrupt, Ms Freed said:
"I have become distrustful and fearful.
I have lost a lot of self-confidence. The
hit-and-run accident in September, 1999,
completely changed my life.
"I received permanent nerve damage
and injuries to my right leg. My heart
"I want to leave the Bahamas but I
can't because I fear that would prolong
the legal proceedings even more. My
lawyer told me it would be settled five
years ago, but it still drags on."
As a small, frail woman walking the
streets, she said she feels vulnerable. The
mugging last month unnerved her even
more, leaving her unconscious on the
Oddly, she says, the only generosity
shown to her has come from other poor
people who have occasionally given her
dollar notes to catch a ride back to her
"I am not yet a street person," she
told The Tribune, "but I am very close to
it. I feel I know the street people and I
now understand how some people turn
"When you are totally desperate, what
is the alternative? Yet, for myself, I have
drawn a line, a concrete line beyond
which I will not go.
."In the room where I live, there is no
phone, no gas, no food and no running
water. At the Salvation Army, I get a
cup of soup, but I go to bed hungry.
"If you have nothing, you get a bad
reputation. And here in Nassau, there
is no safety net for people like me no
unemployment pay, no social security,
no pension. If you are homeless and hun-
gry, you are literally in the street.
"There is not even a homeless shel-
ter for women. If I had a family here,
the situation would be different. At least
I have a roof over my head but if I get
kicked out, it will be the road lo me,

"Sometimes I ask tourists for a dol-

me up for vagrancy. I used to earn $ 1,)000
a week in a bank. Now a woman of my

Ms Freed said she bathes in the sea off
Long Wharf to keep clean, and brushes
her teeth in fast-food restrooms. "For
an educated woman, this is degrading
and humiliating, but at least I haven't
done anything criminal," she said.
As she set off to walk three miles to
her room, Ms Freed said: "I don'l know

Bahamas qualifies to export seafood to E
* By NATARIO MCKENZIE
THE Bahamas has earned its place
on a list of countries that will be allowed
to export fishery products to the Euro-
pean Union (EU) thereby avoiding the
loss of more than $90 million a year.
According to Agriculture and Fish-
eries Minister Alfred Gray, the Bahamas
is now among the countries granted a
"list 1" rating for fisheries exports by
the European Commission.
Failure to meet the criteria by Decem-
ber 31, he said, would have meant facing
the loss of $92 million dollars in annual
Mr Gray explained that for almost 10
years, European Commission inspectors
have been conducting audits of seafood
processors and regulatory regimes in
countries that export to the EU.
He said the Bahamas has always met
the standards, but faced a new, tougher
benchmark this year.
After the US, the EU is the most
important market for Bahamian fish-
"This is a significant achievement -
many countries have not yet made that
list," Mr Gray said. "We just have to
maintain those standards."
The approval came only a few weeks
ago. The qualification process began with
an audit conducted in 1998 and was fol-
lowed by a visit by inspectors in 2002
which focused on legislation, health con-
ditions during production, storage and
dispatch as well as the organisation and
authority of the.inspection service.
The basis for the criteria was the Haz-
ard Analysis Critical Control Point
(HACCP) system for the production of
Mr Gray said the system is iIterna-
tionally recognised as the best system
for quality assurance in the seafood
While the minister could not say exact-
ly how much meeting the critei ia had
cost the Bahamas, he did reveal ihat
thousands of dollars were spcii. l taiu-
ing and physical upgrades.

Caught between two cultures
the problems of diversity

Tribune Staff Reporter
RODLINE Lazarre's life is in
The reason for this, she says, is
that "neither of my hometowns
Rodline was born in the
Bahamas to a Haitian mother, and
like so many young people of Hait-
ian-Bahamian descent, she faces
all the challenges that accompany
In an Internet interview with The
Tribune, she discussed how the
predicament has affected her life.
"I was raised with two cultures
brewing inside of me. Outside of
my home was the Bahamian world,
but inside were the comforting
sounds of my mother's tongue, and
her wonderfully Haitian ways.
"I loved it. I loved my diversity
and embraced both worlds that
helped to mould me into the
woman I am today."
Rodline said that growing up,
she was made to feel ashamed of
heritage. However she said despite
the obstacles, she chose to just be
herself and not let anything or any-
one hinder her growth as a person.
"With that in mind, I went
through school, and did my best. I
did my best because it was a nat-
ural thing for me to do.

to ask, "When wilIt the process

THE TIBUN SkiURDA, NULME3L 12,LOCALh'NEWS
HALLOWEEN came late this year for FNM leadership
contenders Tommy Turnquest and Dion Foulkes as both
thought they had received the treat of their lives on Sunday
night, but then found out on Tuesday that they had been
Last Sunday, sources within both the Foulkes and
Turnquest camps hysterically phoned me with screams and
people thanking the Lord in the background because Hubert
Ingraham had called and emphatically stated that he would
announce that he would not run for the party's nomination
the following day.
However, this announcement never came! Instead, on
Monday Hurricane Hubert decided to respond to the
crescendo of voices calling for his return.
A PLP minister said of Mr Ingraham's political play:
"While Tommy and Dion were rejoicing in the Lord that
Ingraham would not enter the race, Ingraham had already
fooled them and was phoning them with his announcement
letter in his back pocket.
"He probably wrote the letter urging Carl Bethel not to
withdraw his name right after!
Judging from the jubilant response of the delegates to Mr
Ingraham's convention entrance on Wednesday, Hubert
Ingraham may very well be the people's choice. Even after he
left the convention floor, Hurricane Hubert swept the
delegates away in a surge of tsunamic proportions."
It is now evident that Hurricane Hubert has entered as a
category five with all intent to energise the FNM, strike fear
in the hearts of the PLP and retain the crown as King of
And, not revealing his deck of cards before the convention,
whilst treating his challengers to a night of glee, is a sign of an
astute, cunning politician.
This was the play they all dreaded!
The FNM's melee has even inspired Bahamians to watch
the always monotonous ZNS network. It's provided their best
ratings in ages in fact, ever!
A Long Island delegate said: "Now that Hubert Ingraham
has entered, it's over because we are all going to vote for him.
If he hadn't, we may have listened to Dion and given him a
Since Mr Ingraham hoodwinked both Tommy and Dion,
Turnquest has been on the air crying to ZNS about how he
was lied to. Well, Mr Turnquest, that's the nature of the game
you chose to play.
If you can't take it, you must ride the pine as a reserve.
According to some PLPs, questions still loom about Mr
Ingraham's credibility because he promised to serve two
consecutive terms as Prime Minister and may be back again.
One PLP stated: "I thought he say what he mean man! I
guess he say what he mean until he can't mean it no more!"
However, sources within the Ingraham camp say that his
participation in the leadership showdown is easily explain-
"Errybody beatin' up dey gum 'bout how he can't run again
because he supposed to say what he mean. Well, he did do
what he mean. He has only served two consecutive terms.
"He ain't the prime minister now, it's Mr Christie. It ain't
like he say that after serving two consecutive terms he won't
be back after someone else! The people are calling man, and
Mr Ingraham is answering."
Another informant said: "Why don't the PLP talk about
those pastors and other PLP supporters, even the prime min-
ister, who were calling Tommy and pretending to support him
"They only doing that because they wanna put an easy
spanking on Tommy! See, they scared of the pitbull!"

SATURDAY, NOVEMBEH 12, 2UUb, I-wAc- '
Seat in Senate New leader's call to arms
* By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Staff Reporter
FNM leader-elect Hubert
Ingraham said his first act as
official leader of the opposi-
tion will be to appoint former
attorney general Carl Bethel
to the Senate.
Mr Ingraham made the
announcement during his
acceptance speech last night,
calling Mr Bethel to the podi-
um to thank him for his work
as FNM chairman and for his
service to the party.
During this year's conven-
tion, Mr Bethel made an unsuc-
cessful bid for the deputy
leader post. He was narrowly
defeated by Montagu MP
Mr Ingraham's decision to
appoint Mr Bethel to the Sen-
ate is presumably a move to fill
the void left by former FNM
Senator Tanya McCartney,
who tendered her resignation
earlier this year.
At that time, former party
leader Senator Tommy Turn-
quest stated that Ms McCart-
ney's replacement would not
be named until after the party's
Mr Ingraham's announce-
ment came less than 24 hours
after he was nominated leader-
He also promised Mr Bethel
a key role in his future admin-
According to Mr Bethel, the
vote of confidence from Mr
Ingraham was a complete
shock and entirely unexpect-
ed. "I had no information
about this until tonight."
"I am enormously honoured
and privileged. I did not expect
to be called out on stage, but I
am ready to serve the people,"
Mr Bethel told The Tribune
that he had not previously con-
sidered the possibility of a Sen-
ate role, and affirmed that any
position he might accept would
not deflect his intentions to win
the Holy Cross seat in the next
Mr Turnquest said he is
"ecstatic" that Mr Bethel will
be joining his Senate team.
"Carl-is an excellent parlia-
mentary debater. He has
always been very well prepared
with 10 years experience in the
House of Assembly, and so he
knows intimately parliamen-
"It will be second nature.
Carl will do a wonderful job,"
Mr Ingraham said the party must now
work day and night to make sure they
returned to the "place we want to be".
"Why do we want this? Because we are
concerned; we are troubled, we are dis-
turbed and angered by the non-direction
into which our country is drifting.
"We are disturbed and angered by the
shame some PLPs bring to our good name.
We are concerned and troubled by much
talk and little action. The FNM will talk
less but we'll do more," he said.
Mr Ingraham invited Bahamians to check
his record and decide whether "you wish to
have me and my record or you wish to
keep that which you have now."
The FNM must once again move to "res-
cue the perishing and care for the disap-
pointed and the dispirited and the despair-
ing and the socially and economically mar-
ginalised of our country," he said.
"We cannot ignore that national cry for
help and deliverance, and I stand here
tonight to call the FNM troops to arms,
to urge the unified strength we had in 1992
to meet and beat the political foe at the
polls and then to get on with the job of
rescue and restoration," said Mr Ingra-
He pointed out that he had steadfastly
indicated that he never sought, nor intend-
ed to reassume the mantle of leadership
of the FNM, but he was humbled by the
"overwhelming love, faith and hope this
party and the wider Bahamian public have
expressed and placed in me during the
course of this week."
He added: "What began as just a whis7
pering call quickly became over the last
few days an almost deafening roar -,a,
demand if you will that I once again step to,
the helm of this organisation," said M,r
Family considerations, he said, were the,
first of the many issues he had to confront
in acceding to the requests of those who'
wanted his return.
"How was I to ask my dear wife Delores:
and my children to re-enter with me the
burning heat of front-line Bahamian poli-'
tics? On the other hand, how could I ignore
the expressed will of my people?
"You called for my return. You shouted
nay, you demanded that I return to lead'
you," said Mr Ingraham.
Twenty years ago, he said, when the PLP
dumped him overboard in "shark infested
waters, firing heavy artillery at me while I
swam for my political life, you voluntarily'
came to my rescue."
"Instead of helping to kill me political-
ly you called a unilateral ceasefire and'
you instructed your supporters throughout'
the Bahamas and most especially in North-
Abaco, to support me," Mr Ingraham'

"And it looks like we are going to be
together again," he said.
Mr Key said he will do everything in his
power to restore the FNM as the govern-
"This is Perry Christie's worst night-
mare," he said triumphantly as the crowd
went wild inside the convention hall and
outside in the hotel foyer.
It has been speculated that Mr Key will
run for the FNM in South Abaco, as it is
likely that Robert Sweeting, the current
MP for that constituency, will not offer
Mr Sweeting indicated to The Tribune
earlier this week that chances of him run-
ning for South Abaco for a fourth consec-
utive term are "very slim."
Observers have said that this move by Mr
Key is a clear slap in the face for the PLP.
Offering a rallying call to arms last
night, Mr Ingraham urged his party to
unify and admonished dissenting voices
that they "will not stay and poison the
"This is a time for healing and for heed-
ing the cries of the people, the cries which
bleat out a public demand that the present
government, which promised heal and hope
but delivered only hot air and Junkanoo
shuffles, must go," he said.
Mr Ingraham said once again the FNM
must "gird itself and strengthen itself and
resolve itself to answer those cries of
Bahamians from all corners of the land."
"The whole, it is said, is greater than
the sum total of each of its parts. Each of
our parts is great. Each is talented. Each is
deserving. Each a leader in his/her own
right. Each of us has played his or her
"We have given of ourselves for the
advancement of our parta'. for the 'ood
of our country. Tommyi&idDinfi-Cartl
Sidney and Loretta and all of you have all
done your part," said Mr Ingraham.
In a word to Mr Turnquest, Mr Ingraham
said he felt "no less favourably disposed
toward (him) now, than when I endorsed
you as a worthy successor to lead our great
party in 2001."
"The public and I have not always seen
eye-to-eye on you. I regret that. I see
strength where some say they see arro-
gance. I see dedication and commitment
when some see youth.
"Perhaps your moment came too soo."
Perhaps in the future the public will confe
to my way of thinking about you and yoii
turn will come again.
"If and/or when that happens I will lbe'
happy. I say to you tonight that all tla
doors of opportunity remain open to you2a
You are an integral part of the team," sad-
the former prime minister.
Mr Ingraham said the dedication of DiK

position, is boundless.

had called on Mr Mitchell to
explain these irregularities.
As yet there had been no

While the Department of
Immigration was valiantly trying
to defend the Bahamas frokT
