SIX Cuban immigrants have
died in the Bahamas while try-
ing to make their way to the
United States, according to
They were reportedly part of
a larger group rescued from
Elbow Cay, near Abaco, by the
US Coast Guard.
Seven of the eight Cubans
rescued from Elbow Cay are
expected to be turned over to
local immigration officials for
processing on Sunday.
However, local authorities
say they cannot yet officially
confirm the possible deaths of
the other six immigrants.
Speaking with The Tribune
yesterday, Director of Immi-
gration Vernon Burrows con-
firmed that eight Cubans were
found on Elbow Cay in the Cay
Sal Bank on Thursday.
Mr Burrows said that, accord-
ing to reports he received, one
of the Cubans had to be trans-
ported to Florida for medical
attention. The reports did not
state the nature of the immi-
While some reports said the
man had to have his leg ampu-
tated, others said he lost a finger
in an accident with a boat pro-
Mr Burrows said he could not
comment on the condition of
the other Cubans.
"We do not have all the
details as yet," Mr Burrows
said, noting that there had been
discrepancies between early
"The initial story I received
was that there were six dead
bodies on the cay as well. Now I
have found out that the Cubans
have indicated to the Coast
Guard that they know for a fact
that there were a certain num-
ber of them, so they believe that
six of them might have per-
ished," Mr Burrows explained.
The director said once the
seven persons are brought to
New Providence, authorities
will seek further information on
their refugee status and the cir-
cumstances of their entry into
"They will be taken to the
Detention Centre, where they
will go through the screening
process to determine whether
they are in need of internation-
al protection," Mr Burrows

EDITOR, The Tribune....
THIS is a quote from arti-
cle in The Times January 31,
2006, NHS White Paper
"Smaller is better".
"Health campaigners and
doctors...questioned how the
NHS would be able to pay for
the plans set out in the White
Paper as it is already hundreds
of millions of pounds in the
red. Ms Hewitt said that some
funding for the reforms would.
come from the Department of
Health's central budget, while
other aspects would be cov-
ered by the large increases in
funding for the NHS set for
the next few years.
"Andrew Lansley, the Con-
servative health spokesman,
said that the White Paper left
many questions unanswered."
This is a mirror of the situa-
tion which will exist in the
Bahamas if this ill advised
Health Tax and National
Health System is implement-
ed by the PLP. The Nationalist
or any number of concerned
business persons, employers,
insurance industry workers and
concerned taxpayers will be

cle said the NHS is hundreds of

There can be no doubt that
all pensioners must be worried
that this PLP government, with
all its high paid Health Tax
experts would come up with
the incredible plan by which
pensioners must under this
thinly veiled income tax pay a
dollar a day, while actual active
workers pay less.

---- --- -
Why is it that other mem-
bers of this Blue Ribbon Com-
mission did not protest at this
clear injustice to pensioners?
Is it that they are overawed by
all these high powered doc-
tors? Are they asleep?
There is no way that the
present sum paid to pension-
ers is adequate for today's cost
of living. How can it be
.reduced by as much as $30 a
month for a health tax when
active workers pay less?'
Surely the Prime Minister,
who has repeatedly claimed to
be sympathetic to the needs of
the struggling' sectors of our
community, cannot endorse
this unfair treatment of the
Pensioners have paid their
dues, they have laboured to
help to build what we have
today! Should they be treated
in this despicable fashion!
Surely they have enough other
problems to deal with, numer-
ous expenses to meet out of
the meager sum they receive,
with inflation adding to the
cost of items daily!
How can these doctors as
government spokespersons be
so uncaring towards pension-
How can they in the next
breath argue for free treatment
of illegal aliens, and justify not
turning these persons in to the
authorities? The Nationalist
calls on government again, and
will not stop calling on this
government to scrap this ill
advised socialist experiment.
The Times article indicated
how deep a hole this tax is for
the British public. Make no
mistake, a Health tax is a true
bottomless pit! It can easily
consume all our total income
in one year!
- The UK system: Hundreds
of millions in red is a major.
warning to us all!
The FNM leader Mr Ingra-
ham has been deafeningly
silent on this NHS system and
Health tax. In his last term he
proposed another form of
Health Tax. Both of the cur-
rent major party leaders fail
therefore to show sufficient
awareness of the negative
effects of over taxation of our
small tax base, plus a refusal
to allow the private sector to
be creatively involved in the
solution of our health prob-
lems. It is clear that new lead-
ership is needed in both parties
to cope'with contemporary
The main problem in our
health system is the combina-
tion of political patronage and
the inefficiency it inevitably
produces. Until these are
cured, no amount of money
wrung from the Bahamian
public will cure our health ills.
The Nationalist's first and
continuing involvement in pol-
itics began with agitation for
health care reform in 1975 as
an intern at the Princess Mar-
garet Hospital. The Health
care system is even more inef-
ficient today than it was bqck
then. Political victimisation for
speaking out was the rule! I
A major reason why the
Nationalist added legal training
to his medical training wasito
be free from the strictures of
being a government boubd
doctor in a system where doc-
tors need access to government
health facilities. This need for
access is an effective muzzle
on our doctors who want to
agitate for serious reform. No
government has allowed a pri-
vate hospital to be built since
that would leave doctors tbo
independent and not easily
The Nationalist has paid his
dues to be able to speak freely
and does so on behalf of he

lament the enforced ineffi-
ciency of our health system
and for all patients. The

specialist has since 1994 acted
as a stimulus to efficiency by

What is especially notable
about Mr Hanna is his reac-

colleagues as accepting bribes
and other drug-related
monies. He immediately
Mr Hanna quit with what
Saunders and Craton refer to
as "disgust at the revelations
before the commission".
Why can't today's new
breed of politicians follow
this most noble example?
How many men would resign
in protest from the deputy
prime ministership, next in
line to being prime minister?
Mr Hanna's detractors will
highlight his prior anti-colo-
nial views and criticise him
for accepting a role as the
Queen's official representa-
But, regardless of whether
he would decline or accept a
knighthood, because of his
former advocacy of a
Bahamianisation policy, Mr
Hanna has proven to be an
honest, respectable politician
at a time when many were
mired in skulduggery.
A senior media figure said
the one thing Hanna repre-
sents that is rare here, or any-
where for that matter, is a
knack for honesty and
respectability in the political

Gibson said go\ emunent has not
taken a position as .set'about
the proposed establishment of a
"no build zone'! in certain areas
of West Grand Bahama.
In the wake of.Hurricane
Wilma in October last year, the
Ministry of Works made an
informal recommendation to
government that it should con-
sider banning the rebuilding of
houses in some coastal areas
destroyed by storm surge.
"The Ministry of Works said
they are recommending to the
government that people not be
allowed to build on the south
side 80 feet between the sea and
road. But, they have not done
so formally yet," he explained.
Mr Gibson said that if the
ministry officially makes a for-
mal recommendation, the gov-
ernment will meet with the
affected homeowners before
making a decision.
He stressed that the estab-
lishment of no build zones is
nothing new and was done by
the FNM administration in
1999. "The former prime min-
ister (Hubert Ingraham) did
exactly the same thing in 1999 at
Crossing Rock following Hur-
ricane Floyd," Mr Gibson said.
"We have not taken a deci-
sion yet, and unlike the previous
administration that did not
allow individuals who were liv-
ing for generations in Old
Crossing to rebuild we will
make an effort to meet with res-
idents, community and religious
leaders before making any con-
clusions," he said.
Parties 'fail' education
same problems that afflicted the
FNM in education are the
PLP's worst nightmare," he
Mr Stuart said the FNM and
the PLP are responsible for
producing a generation of illit-

members of the public need to
"wake up" and see that the
country is in desperateneed of

what kind of benefits patients
would be able to expect.
Dr Bethel replied that cer-
tain aspects of the project still
have to be refined.

ing in the Bahamas

FOREIGN Affairs Minister
Fred Mitchell encouraged the
business community to embrace
opportunities arising out last
month's Asian expedition.
Mr Mitchell travelled to Chi-
na and India along with a dele-
gation from the Bahamas that
included Tanya Wright, presi-
dent of the Bahamas Chamber
of Commerce. :
While in India, the Bahamas
Chamber signed an agreement
to establish a joint business
council with the Federation of
Indian Chambers of Commerce
and Industry (FICCI).
Addressing the Chamber on
Thursday, Mr Mitchell said that
in India and China, there is cur-
rently great interest in the areas
of tourism, information tech-
nology, technical assistance and
"When we see the business
.contracts actually flourishing
and somebody says 'I've been
able to get a manufactured
input into the Bahamas at a
cheaper price, which offers me
the opportunity to sell my prod-
uct in the Bahamas at cheaper
price', then I know we have
done our job," he said.
Mr Mitchell told members
that a Indian trade show is set to
take place in the Bahamas in
November of this year.
The idea is for Bahamian
businesses to attend the exhibit
and see what is available. This,
he said, can lead to business
relationships that can help to
develop local business.
Chamber president Tanya
Wright explained that the main
objective of the memorandum
of understanding with the FIC-
CI is to increase mutual trade,
and that technical and industri-
al co-operation between private
sector business in both coun-
tries will be encouraged.
"We have to appreciate that.
.. ensuring that we create more
small businesses, more entre-
preneurs, or more opportuni-
ties to become entrepreneurs,
is really one of the primary
objectives of the Bahamas

Health sector must 'build bridges'
By Bahamas Iformation Ser-
MINISTER of Health Sena-
tor Marcus Bethel warned
healthcare professionals and
administrators to guard against
"institutional territorialism" -
as it can negatively impact the
delivery of care to patients.
Addressing the Healthcare
Leadership Summit hosted by
the Public Hospitals Authority,
I)r Bethel told health profes-
sionals they must continue to
work towards a more efficient
integration of healthcare ser-
vices in the Bahamas, despite
the many successes the indus-
try has enjoyed.
He said the only why to
ensure that this happens is to
continue to build partnerships
between healthcare profession-
als. "Our greatest challenge ...
is building bridges within our
own healthcare sector because
of rigid policies and behaviour.
This is called the 'Silo Phenom-
enon'," Dr Bethel said.
The "Silo Phenomenon" he
explained, "represents institu-
tional territorialism (and)
adversely impacts our delivery
of healthcare and it primarily
;infects our administrators and
"Secondarily, it affects doc-
tors, nurses, allied health pro-
fessionals and support staff and,
ultimately, affects the quality of
Healthcaree to the public.
"Hence, it is arguably the sin-

gle greatest hindrance to the
delivery of quality healthcare
in the Bahamas," Dr Bethel
said. The minister pointed out
that the healthcare sector in the
Bahamas has benefited enor-
mously from both new and well
established international and
regional partnerships in the
He said at the national level,
partnerships with faith-based
organizations and civic groups
such as the AIDS Foundation,
the Kerzner Group, the Nation-
al Drug Council, the Cancer
Society, the Diabetic Society,
Kingdor National Foundation,
the Bahamas Heart Association
and many others, have had a
positive impact on the quality
and sustainability of the coun-
try's healthcare initiatives.
"Partnerships are working
relationships between human
beings and serve the need for
collaboration, security, emo-
tional support and the growth
and development of people,
societies, nations and business-
es," said Dr Bethel.
"These partnerships illustrate
how building bridges moulds
and strengthens our healthcare
system," Dr Bethel added.
