AG says govt negotiating

heads of agreement


THERE is "every reason to
believe" that LNG will be
approved before the end of gov-
ernment's present term,
attorney general Allyson
Maynard-Gibson told The Tri-
bune.
She confirmed that govern-
ment is negotiating a heads of
agreement with AES corpora-
tion, and explained that this in
continuance of the policy estab-
lIRed under the former gov-
ernment,
However, she stressed, the
appropriate regulatory regime
will be in place before the deal
is concluded.
"We have consulted widely
with international experts on
this particular matter of the reg-
ulatoryregime," she said.
Mrs Maynard-Gibson said
the former government
approved in principle that a
liquified natural gas plant would
be a possibility in the Bahamas.
"The previous administration


agreed the principle that LNG
could be a part of the Bahamian
. economy, when it gave to three
different companies the agree-
ment in principle, provided it
passed the environmental con-
siderations.
"This administration is con-
tinuing that very same policy
established by the previous
administration," said Mrs May-
nard-Gibson.
AES has proposed building
an LNG terminal at Ocean Cay
- a man-made island eight
miles from Bimini. It is one of
three proposals made to gov-
ernment since it came to office
in 2002.
Under the plan liquified nat-
ural gas will be shipped in
tankers to the terminal at
Ocean Cay and from there
regasified, and transported
through an underwater pipeline
to service the power needs
of the South Florida communi-
ty.


Rise in mentally ill people on
streets 'due to lack of resources'
0 By MARK HUMES
BECAUSE treatment resources are falling hopelessly short,
New Providence continues to see a pervasive rise in mentally
deranged street people.
As rapid population continues to outstrip medical resources,
Dr Glen Beneby, the medical adviser to the Public Hospital Author-
ity,. said that the upsurge in persons with mental disorders on the
streets of New Providence is not unusual to the Bahamas. Many
developing nations face the same problems, he said.
"As you develop, you challenge your resources," said Dr Bene-
by. "And what we see is peculiar to any circumstance in which you

Date set for final ruling in

Kozeny extradition hearing


* By NATARIO McKENZIE
Tribune Staff Reporter
A DATE has been set for
the final ruling in the extradi-
tion hearing of Czech-born
investor Viktor Kozeny, it was
revealed in court yesterday.
Magistrate Carolita Bethel
said that she expects to have
made a decision in the matter
by September 18.
Mr Kozeny and lawyers
leading his defence against the
request for his extradition to
the United States were back
in court yesterday to submit


their closing arguments.
Kozeny's lawyers, in what
was supposedly their final
defence, were asked to make
submissions in regards to the
Inter-American Convention
Against Corruption and its
retroactivity.
Last month, Kozeny had
charges of money-laundering
outlined in an authority to pro-
ceed order against him dis-
missed by Magistrate Caroli-
ta Bethel, who said she was
not satisfied that those partic-
ular charges for which the US
had indicted him constituted


an offence under Bahamian
law.
Clive Nichols, QC, made
submissions yesterday in the
investor's defence against the
corruption charges which were
upheld by the magistrate's rul-
ing in June.
In regard to the Inter-Amer-
ican Convention Against Cor-
ruption, Kozeny's lawyers con-
tended that the Inter-Ameri-
can Convention against Cor-
ruption, to which the Bahamas
is a signatory, is not applica-

ADMITTING that farmers
are in dire need of more assis-
tance from government, Agri-

Minister Leslie Miller said he
is prepared to recommend to
the Prime Minister and his col-
leagues "major" increases in
farmer subsidies.
Mr Miller reminded the pub-
lic thrit it \sas this current PLP
government that had already
tripled farmer subsidies, which
were less than $4,000 to the cur-
rent $9,500.
However, he said farmers
would have to produce prod-
ucts that are needed in the mar-
ket place, instead of just hap-
hazardly growing crops for
which there is no need.
"Mind you, I can't really
blame them. It is our extension
officers and the ministry itself
that needs to work a lot closer
with the farmers to guide and
assist them," he said,

Lawyer: there's
been no feedback
in months over
alleged beating
of journalist
* By KRYSTEL ROLLE
ALMOST six months after
the alleged beating of an Amer-
ican journalist outside the
Carmichael Road Detention
Centre, the Bahamas Govern-
ment has yet to provide a
promised "in-depth report" into
the case, a lawyer representing
Spanish Channel Univision
revealed yesterday.
"It has been months since we
received any feedback," Florida
Consul Mikki Canton of the law
firm of Gunster and Yoakley
said.
However, she said, she spoke
to Bahamas Vice Consul
Arnold Whylly, who was sup-
posed to give her an update on
the case in a couple of days. He
made that promise about two
weeks ago, she said, but nothing
has been heard since,

Juvenile offenders shock:



40% 'challenged by reading'


FORTY per cent of juvenile
offenders are "challenged by
reading," according to director
of Rehabilitative Welfare Ser-
vices Sharon Farquharson.
Mrs Farquahson told The Tri-
bune yesterday that while the
number can fluctuate, there are
roughly 35 girls currently at the
Williemae Pratt School For
Girls and 50 boys at the Simp-
son Pen Centre for Boys.
She said the department is
starting to see a higher number
of delinquents between the ages
of 10 and 12, compared to pre-
vious years.
"We have much more juve-
niles coming in right now,
because, you see, the main thing
with the juvenile court is to try
to keep them out of the system


as much as possible," Ms Far-
quharson explained. "So rather
than giving them a sentence, we
try to do things with them with-
in the community. But when all
else fails we send them to the
industrial schools."
As with any charge, sentences
for juveniles depend on the
offence committed,
Earlier this year, officials
announced that adolescent
males accounted for more than
half of the home invasions
reported in the southeastern
communities of New Provi-
dence.
Chief Superintendent of
Police James Carey said that of

the southern district, 12 were

ages of 12 and 17.
Mrs Farquharson said that
the majority of individuals
brought before the Rehabili-
tative Unit of the Department
of Social Services are express-
ing anti-social behavior.
"We have had juveniles
come to us as young as 10. But


sometime those age 10 are also
incarcerated, (at the industrial
schools) based on the serious-
ness of the offence. Otherwise
we try to keep those 10 and 11

vices."
She explained that boys are
placed in a programme known
as BOSS ( Boys of Strength
Surviving).


"We would put all of them
into that group in an attempt
to shape their character and
discourage them from whatev-
er behaviour that is stunting

Copyright laws for



Bahamas explored


* ALLYSON Maynard Gibson

* By TIFFANY GRANT
Tribune Staff Reporter
THE Bahamas has sought
the advice of a specialist on
the way forward in protecting
intellectual property including
all forms of local cultural
expression.
Over the past two days
Sonia Cruickshank, consultant-
for World Intellectual Proper-
ty Organisation (WIPO), met
with the attorney general, reg-
istrar general, commissioner
of police, Copyright Commis-
sion and the representatives
of the Ministry of Culture to
discuss the securing of intel-
lectual property in the
Bahamas.
At a press conference yes-
terday announcing the co-
operation between the
Bahamas government and
the WIPO, Attorney Gener-
al Allyson Maynard-Gibson
said the issue of informing
the public about the impor-
tance of protecting intellec-
tual property was also dis-
cussed.
This, she said, includes
explaining how digital piracy


"significantly erodes the sys-
tem of governance upon which
we are based - and how it
impacts people's investment
in themselves."
The . government has
received advice on the updat-
ing of intellectual property
laws and the protection of tra-
ditional knowledge and folk-
lore - such as junkanoo.
"There are persons around
the world who are already
holding themselves out as
experts in junkanoo; these are
not Bahamians. Our intellec-
tual property in the country
has already been impacted,"
Mrs Maynard-Gibson said.
"We want to move expedi-
tiously working with WIPO
and the Ministry of Culture to
protect what remains - that
includes methods of building
costumes, the way instruments
are made, and all the many
properties involved in
junkanoo."
Arlene Nash-Ferguson,
speaking on behalf of the
Junkanoo Corporation, said
that entertainers welcome the
attempt to protect the arts and
sciences of junkanoo.

Flights are

cancelled

as runway
lights fail
I* GUYANA
Georgetown


THE runway lights at
Guyana's main airport have
failed, forcing the cancellation
of some incoming and departing
international flights, the civil
aviation authority said Tuesday,
according to Associated Press.
The lights went out late Mon-
day, leading to the cancellation
of four flights, including from
Barbados, Jamaica and
Antigua, and several others
scheduled to arrive early Tues-
day, said Paula McAdam, a
spokeswoman for the aviation
authority. The lighting backup
system also failed.
The lights weren't function-
ing, and it wasn't clear if upcom- .
ing night flights would be affect-
ed. "Teams were working to
determine the cause of the
breakdown and checking the
entire length of cables to see
what had happened," McAdam
said.
It was the second mishap of
the year at the airport. In late
April, authorities had to tem-
porarily suIspfid night flig-ts
when equipment that allows the
control tower to tell pilots how
high their aircraft is above sea
level failed, rendering flights
dangerous after dark.

Murder trial

adjourned
as accused

feels ill

THE Cordell Farrington trial
was adjourned yesterday after
the court was informed that the
accused was feeling ill.
The trial was expected to
commence at 2 pm yesterday as
prosecutors and Farrington's
defence lawyer had met in
closed court for most of the
morning.
However when the matter
resumed Farrington's lawyer
Romona Farquharson informed
the court that her client was not
feeling well. She told the court
that Farrington had not eaten
since Monday.
Ms Farquharson said that by
the time Farrington was
returned to the prison on Mon-
day evening he had missed his
dinner and had not had any
breakfast yesterday morning.
Justice Allen adjourned the
matter to 3 pm so that the
accused could be afforded his
meal.
However, at 3pm Ms Far-
quharson said that Farrington
was nauseous and complaining
of gas pains, and not in a condi-
tion to continue his trial yester-
day afternoon, adding she was
grateful her client had been giv-
en time to have his meal.
Prosecutor Cheryl Grant-
Bthel told the court that Far-
rington had missed his lunch
due to the fact that the court
proceedings had been
adjourned to 2 pm.
The jury was dismissed and
the trail is expected to continue
this morning.

Cuban exiles
issue call
to reject
repression

E MIAMI
A COALITION of Cuban
e ile-groups launched a cam-
paign Tuesday urging Cubans
on the island not to participate
in attacks on those who speak
out against the Cuban govern-
ment, according to Associated
Press.
The groups said the campaign
comes in response to requests
by political prisoners and
activists in Cuba, as well as evi-
dence that growing numbers of
Cubans are already refusing to
join so-called acts of repudia-
tion against their fellow citizens.
"Every dictator needs its civ-
il society to maintain the dicta-
torship," said Angel De Fana,
head of a group of former
Cuban political prisoners who
work with dissidents on the
island.
De Fana's group, and the oth-
er coalition members - Moth-
ers Against Repression and the
Cuban Democratic Directorate
- said their goal is to let people
in arnd outside of Cuba know
about the those inv61ved in civ-
il disobedience there.
The Directorate, which doc-
uments peaceful resistance to
the Cuban government, report-
ed 3,314 verified acts of civil
disobedience in 2005, as com-
pared to 444 in 2000. The Direc-
torate also documented more
than a dozen instances in the
last year when neighbors
refused to participate in the
repudiations.


Police voice concern over




crimes committed on bail


* By ROYANNE
FORBBES-DARVILLE

WITH no system in place
to monitor the activities of
persons released on bail,
police are extremely con-
cerned that a number of those
awaiting trial may be commit-
ting crimes.
Assistant Commissioner of
Police in charge of crime Regi-


House-arrest system 'has been suggested'


nald Ferguson told The Tri-
bune yesterday that that cre-
ation of a house-arrest system
has been suggested to track
persons granted bail.
An ankle bracelet is nor-
mally used when persons are
placed under house arrest, to


ensure that they remain with-
in a certain radius of their
home.
If they leave this area, law
enforcement officers will be
alerted, he explained.
Mr Ferguson pointed out
that such an elaborate system


would require an expansion
of bureaucracy, funding and
man power.
"Those ideas were looked
into in terms of trying to mon-
itor persons, but nothing like
that has been implemented,"
he said. "But other than that,
when a person is arraigned
before the court, depending
on the circumstances, the
criminal history is looked at -
and outside of that, there is
no specified mechanism in
place to govern persons on
bail."
In 2004, seven per cent of
234 persons arrested were
released on bail.
Official statistics also reveal
that out of the 126 suspects
arrested for unlawful sexual
intercourse, 10 of them were
repeat suspects.
In October 2004, a 25 year
old Flamingo Gardens man
on bail for murder was
charged with two rapes and
two attempted rapes.
Chief Superintendent of
Police Marvin Dames, who is


in charge of the Central
Detective Unit (CDU) has
also voiced concerns about the
issue.
"From time to time, there
have been cases where per-
sons released on bail involve
themselves in criminal act
while out on bail. Our job is to
investigate, arrest and then put
them before the court," Mr
Ferguson said.

In recent years, maun _-
Bahamians have questioned
the decision making process
that goes into the gr;"niing of
bail.
Attorney General Allyson
Maynard-Gibson has been
steadfast in setting up the
Swift Justice system, with the
assurance that "criminals will
be swiftly caught, swiftly tried
and swiftly punished, and that
will contribute to breaking the
back of crime and the fear of
crime."
During a speech to parlia-
ment earlier this year, Mrs
Maynard Gibson said most
Bahamians would agree that
crime and the fear of crime
are among the principal issues
concerning Bahamians in
2006.

THE investigation into the
death a woman killed in a
suspicious fire last week is
going extremely well, law
enforcement officials say.
However, investigators
have yet to draw any firm
conclusions.
According to Chief Super-
intendent Marvin Dames,
investigators are following
many lines of inquiry and are
looking at all possibilities in
their effort to determine
what caused the fire in a
Faith Avenue condominium
that killed 35-year-old Nico-
la Gibson.
Mr Dames was unable to
comment on whether or not
flammable liquids were
found at the scene of the fire,
but he did mention that the
forensic analysis of the


charred crime scene is not
yet complete.
"When there is a belief
that something was the cause
of a fire, there is a process
that we have to go through in
order to determine if that
was in fact the case," Mr
Dames said. "I don't want to
pre-empt the process."
"We are trying to answer
the questions of what exactly
happened, how it happened
and why it happened," he
continued. "What we have
right now is a fire and a per-
son who died as a result of
the fire. It will be classified as
suspicious until we find the
reason for the fire and the
resulting death.
"The investigation cannot
be based on assumptions -
we have to rely on facts," Mr
Dames said.
The fire took place early


Friday morning in a condo-
minium complex on Faith
Avenue north, just south of
Fire Trail Road.
Fire officers arrived on the
scene shortly after the fire
was reported, to find that the
blaze had been put out with
the help of two neighbours.
Ms Gibson was found in
the northern bedroom of the
two-bedroom apartment on
the second floor.
Her 14-year-old son was
treated for smoke inhalation
at the Princess Margaret
Hospital and released.
Ms Gibson was an employ-
ee at the Wyndham Nassau
Resort.

EIOI AULETES T HEEITOR


AS BRADLEY ROBERTS and other
government MPs have made the'prime min-
ister's pension a political issue in the case of
former prime minister Hubert Ingraham,
we think, as we said in this column yester-
day, that the public should now have a full
explanation of how the $500,000 figure was
arrived at for Lady Pindling when it was
decided to correct an "unlawful, illegiti-
mate decision" against the late Sir Lynden
Pindling.
It would be interesting to know if gov-
ernment had done any "double dipping"
here - something of which it has accused
Mr Ingraham.
In 2003 Prime Minister Christie informed
the House that government had decided to
pay Lady Pindling her husband's pension for
the years 1992 to 1997 when he was oppo-
sition leader in the House. As opposition
leader Sir Lynden would have been paid
$50,000 a year.
Mr Christie claimed that the pension was
"unfairly and unlawfully withheld" from Sir
Lynden during the period when he was an
active member of parliament. He received
his full pension on his retirement in 1997
until the time of his death.
According t6O W�r ChFRqie the pension
was withheld "unfairly and unlawfully"
while Sir Lynden was still in parliament.
Mr Ingraham has always maintained that
nothing was done unlawfully because the
agreement between Sir Lynden, Mr Christie,
and himself was that no pension was to be
paid until Sir Lynden had actually retired.
Mr Ingraham has contended that Sir Lyn-
den and Mr Christie accepted the position
because, although they both had many
opportunities during Sir Lynden's lifetime to
protest if either felt that anything was being
done unlawfully, neither raised the pension
question again. It only became an issue after
his death when Governmefit decided on the
payment to Lady Pindling, in addition to
her widow's pension, which was three quar-
ters of her husband's pension.
There are those lawyers who claim that if
anything was done "unlawfully" it was the
decision to make this payment, because Sir
Lynden's pension was only to have come
into legal effect on his retirement. This is
another point that should be clarified.
And now to the question of Mr Christie's
allegation of "unfairness" and Mr Roberts'
contention that Mr Ingraham had "forced


Sir Lynden to resign" in 1997.
It is true that on Sir Lynden's file, Mr
Ingraham had left a note stating that Sir
Lynden's pension was not to be paid until
he retired.
If this was unfair why didn't Mr Christie
say so then?
We have no idea why Mr Ingraham left
such a note on the file. We can only guess
that it would have been easier for 'him to
govern without Sir Lynden's continued
backroom political activities. And so, we
presume, that he would have done anything
at the time to have made retirement for Sir
Lynden very attractive. In the case of Mr
Christie, we do not have to guess why he
didn't protest. He made it clear on the floor
of the House that he encouraged Sir Lynden
to take early retirement because he wanted
the way cleared for the type of leadership
that he himself "would wish to exercise in
the Progressive Liberal Party."
Our guess is that if Sir Lynden could
have received his pension while he was also
opposition leader he would not have retired
when he did.
And if we read the times correctly, this
would not have sat well with either Mr
Iftgraham or Mr Christie. And so, we pre-
sume, that the agreement to withhold Sir
Lynden's pension until actual retirement
was the bait that was needed to quietly ease
him into the sunset.
And so if Mr Roberts is correct in his
claim that Mr Ingraham "forced" Sir Lyn-
den out, we would submit that Mr Christie
was also a gentle enforcer.
Under the pension plan, Sir Lynden was
to have security staff, the number to be
decided by the Commissioner of Police. In
fact two officers were assigned to him. He
retained his diplomatic passport and had a
personal assistant from the time he left
office until the time of his death. He also
received $15,000 in cash for incidental
expenses. His pension was $86,000 a year in
addition to his MP's salary of $28,000. His
total cash packet, including his expenses
was $129,000 a year. And his widow, Lady
Pindling, now receives her widow's pension
in addition to an assistant' and a govern-
ment car.
It is difficult to understand how any-
one- except to make political mischief -
can say that the Pindlings have been
"unfairly" or shabbily treated.

Sir Lynden not shabbily treated


EDITOR, The Tribune.
THIS past Independence
Day was not very different
from those of the past. With
the regular festivities, the
Bahamian community took
time out to acknowledge and
recognize the contributions of
those unsung heroes who had
sacrificed to give us what we
have today. As someone who
has often criticised the Bahami-
an society for being ungrateful
as in most cases, some of the
greatest Bahamian patriots
have gone to the great beyond
without any acknowledgment
or reward for their unselfish
labour to make a better life for
the rest of us in the Bahamas.
Many of then have died as pau-
pers and those who directly
benefited ignored their cries in
their time of need. I am indeed
impressed with the fact that in
some Bahamian communities,
for example, some effort has
been made to recognize these
icons by the establishment of a
"Wall of Famel" The names of
these persons and their contri-
butions will be posted in a
prominent place for all to see.
This is what is what is being
done on Grand Bahama. It is
not enough just to acknowledge
them, but their life's story must
be- told as well.
Heroes come from all walks
of life and professions. It knows
no age, gender or level of edu-
cation. Some of our heroes had
to leave school at an early age
due to circumstances beyond
their control. The only common
characteristic that heroes seem
to share is a burning desire to
assist their fellow man and
country in a most unselfish way.
There is no thought of a reward
or acknowledgment of their
contributions. At the end of the
day it is their acts of commit-
ment that has made it better
for all of those whose lives they
have touched. This-unique and
distinguished group of persons
have included teachers, preach-
ers, postal workers, lighthouse
keepers, taxi drivers, and even
garbage collectors. The bottom
line is the fact that in their own
way, they helped to mould the
character of the nation
There is no measure as to the
limit of the effect of such con-
tributions. For example, my
grandmother, Mrs Vera
Symonette Hanna, who walked
twenty miles round trip daily
to ensure that the children of
Acklins received a good edu-
cation. One of her students at
Mason Bay's All Age School
just happened to be Ivy Rolle,
the mother of Sir Lynden Pin-
dling who is credited with the
distinction as being "the Father
of the Nation". Clearly, the dis-
cipline and values installed in
Lynden Pindling by his mother
could I believe in part be traced
back to the influence of Mrs
Vera Hanna,


Another individual family
member who deserves much
praise is my brother, Humphrey
Percentie Jr, alias "Hitler". For
almost two decades now, he has
made it his mission in life to
take care of one of the
Bahamas' best treasures.
Almost on a daily basis he has
walked almost the entire length
of Harbour Island's world
famous Pink Sand beach pick-
ing up trash that had either
washed ashore or been left
there by nasty and filthy per-
sons. Being designated as one
of the best beaches in the
world, persons travel from far
and wide to experience this
wonderful spectacle of nature.
Indeed, "Brilanders" have been
truly blessed by the good Lord
with such an asset, the least
they can do is to take care of it.
This is the message that
"Hitler" presents on the Min-
istry of Tourism TV advertise-
ment "Proud to be a Bahami-
an".
Oftentimes, Hitler is on the
Pink Sands beach all alone exe-
cuting his labour of love for the
beach. When additional help is
needed, Hitler pays them out
of his own pocket for raking,
bagging, trucking and dispos-
ing of the trash. Occasionally
he has received some financial
assistance from concerned citi-
zens and winter residents. Also,
at one point he was receiving
a little stipend from Local Gov-
ernment, but in recent times
that has been revoked due to
their budget crunch. Yet,
despite such setbacks, Hitler
has never faltered from his ded-
ication to the beach cleanup.
His only disappointment has
been the fact that locals and
visitors alike have to relieve
themselves either in the bushes
or on our precious Pink Sand
Beach as there are no public
bathrooms on such a famous
tourist attraction.
I must say that it was impres-
sive on how the government
has attempted to honour the
father of the nation, Sir Lyn-
den Pindling by renaming Nas-
sau International Airport
(NIA) in his name. Despite this
gesture of goodwill, many per-
sons expressed their disap-
proval due to the fact that the
timing was off. NIA is in need
of major repairs. Just two days
after the official ceremonies
dedicating the name of Lynden
Pindling, I saw several areas
where there were buckets
catching water from leaks in
the roof of the airport. Cer-
tainly, someone with the stature
of Lynden Pindling deserves
better. His name should only
have been attached to the air-

port after the major renova-
tions and upgrading had taken
place.
Another impressive recogni-
tion over the Independence cel-
ebrations was the tribute paid
to my good friend, Harcourt
"Rusty" Bethel. Immortalising
his name by renaming 3rd Ter-
race in Centreville, the home
of Radio Bahamas, was most
fitting and appropriate. Rusty
was a common man with a
common touch and with lots of
common sense. He possessed a
rare ability to recall historical
events in detail. Just by listen-
ing to him was a history lesson.
He often kidded me about a
song that my father, the late
Humphrey Percentie Sr, wrote
about the sinking of the "Zehma
Rose", a mailboat that sank in
Six Schilling Channel while on
the way to Spanish Wells. This
maritime disaster resulted in a
number of deaths and with the
heroic action of Captain Higgs
who swam eleven miles to Cur-
rent Island to get help. Rusty
always reminded me that on
the morning of that dreadful
day at Prince George's Dock,
he warned Captain Higgs that
too much freight was on one
side of the boat.
Rusty's greatest achievement
was the establishment of Zenith
Nassau Station (ZNS), the life-
line for the people in the Out
Islands. This venture almost
cost him his life on one occa-
sion but his commitment to the
job never faltered. Through cri-
sis such as hurricanes or other
emergencies, Rusty's voice was
a comfort for reliable informa-
tion and advice. This commu-
nication institution is now a
giant today, but it is hard to
believe that Rusty almost single
handedly is responsible for its
development. Most of the most
prominent journalists and
broadcasters in the Bahamas
today owe him a debt of grati-
tude as in one way or the other,
he had positively impacted their
development in the broadcast-
ing world.
Finally, once again it is a
pleasure to congratulate my
mother, "Ma" Ruby Percentie
of Tingum Village, Harbour
Island. Last Saturday evening
at Sandals Resort here in Nas-
sau, at the 5th Annual Confer-
ence and Banquet of Honour,
"Ma" Ruby alohg with other
outstanding Bahamians such as
Lady Pindling, DPM Cynthia
"Mother" Pratt, J Barrie Far-
rington, Arlene Nash Ferguson,
etc, were recognized for their
outstanding contributions to the
nation. "You go girl!"

Foreign
donors meet
to raise funds
for Haiti

* HAITI
Port-au-Prince
HAITI'S new government
pressed foreign donors for bil-
lions of dollars in urgent aid on
Tuesday, warning the impover-
ished country could fall back
into chaos without immediate
and long-term help, according
to Associated Press.
Money for new roads,
upgrading the electricity grid
and improving telecommunica-
tions topped the agenda of Pres-
ident Rene Preval's govern-
ment, which also is seeking
funds to bolster the police,
improve education and spur
tourism.
The one-day donor's meet-
ing comes amid surging violence
in the capital that has raised
fears of a return to the mayhem
seen after the February 2004
revolt that ousted former pres-
ident Jean-Bertrand Aristide.
The three-week rebellion
destroyed many state offices,
factories and police stations,
pushing the poorest country in
the Americas deeper into
despair.
Haiti's government is seek-
ing US$544 million to pay for
development projects over the
next year, part of US$7 billion
in aid it says it needs over the
next five years.
It also wants US$131 million
in budget assistance for 2006-
2007, but donors have been
reluctant to agree because it is
harder to track how those funds
are spent, officials said.

DEA agents
to work
permanently
in Suriname

* SURINAME
Paramaribo
+--THE US Drug Enforcement
Administration will assign
agents to permanently work in
Suriname to help stem the flow
of narcotics moving through the
South American country, offi-
cials said Tuesday, according to
Associated Presss.
US Ambassador Marsha
Barnes and Suriname's Justice
and Police Minister Chan-
drikapersad Santhoki signed an
agreement on Tuesday that will
allow three agents to help local
police fight the drug trade,
though they won't have juris-
diction in the country.
"We have to be honest and
acknowledge that we don't
always have the capability to
dismantle these international
lines or to expose all the people
involved in these organisa-
tions," Santhoki said.
Suriname is primarily a tran-
sit point for South American
cocaine bound for Europe, the
US State Department said in its
annual drugs report. Weak law
enforcement and an inability
for authorities to control the
borders contribute to the prob-
lem.
In 2005, Surinamese authori-
ties seized 1,507 kilograms of
cocaine and arrested 734 people
for drug-related offenses,
according to the report.

Customs
strike makes
cargo pile
up at docks

* SURINAME
Paramaribo
A STRIKE by customs offi-
cers at the main port in Suri-
name's capital has forced car-
go to pile up on the docks in
the South American country,
worrying importers who fear
losing their goods, union and
shipping officials said Tuesday,
according to Associated Press.
About 150 of the 200 customs
officers at New Port went on


strike Monday to seek better
working conditions, new uni-
forms and a change in promo-
tion policies, said Romeo Chin
A Loi, union chairman.
"The union members are fed
up and angry, and we will not
continue to work like this,"
Chin A Loi said.
Though shipping traffic was
thus far unaffected since cargo
was being unloaded at the port,
the goods could not leave the
docks.
Vyzelman called the strike
"disproportionate" to the dam-
ages it was causing.


Airport workers' fear




after bomb threats


* By CHESTER ROBARDS
WORKERS at the International Air
Cargo Building on JFK drive are taking
the spate of bomb threats to that facility
very seriously.
Three bomb scares have reportedly
been called in to the facility in the last
month.
"These threats may be a hoax but I'm
not prepared to take that chance," said
president and operations manager of
Executive Transport Experts Stephen
Johnson. "I'd just like to see the perpe-
trators caught. This is a huge hindrance to
our business and its not an easy thing
when you threaten someone's life."
The Customs-run building houses
roughly 100 workers who are employed by
10 to 12 importers that run their opera-
tions out of the facility.
"This is a government building and one
of the government's major points of rev-
enue - this cargo facility is the gateway for
almost all air cargo shipments in the
Bahamas and during these threats, it
comes to a standstill," said Mr Johnson.
"You can't bring the international cargo
facility of the Bahamas to a standstill.
"It's disheartening, we need to get the
perpetrators and make an example out
of them - somebody need to be held
responsible," he said.
Mr Johnson said that during Monday's
bomb scare, his staff was left in the build-
ing after everyone else had evacuated,
and had to be informed of the evacua-
tion by a worker fleeing the building, who
noticed that they were still there.
He said even some of the Customs staff
were not aware that there was a threat
to the building.

scares
(Photo: Mario Duncanson/Tribune staff)


Speaking with The Tribune yesterday,
Assistant Commissioner of Police in
charge of crime Reginald Ferguson
explained that during a bomb scare, the
first priority is to evacuate the building.
He said that depending on the nature of
the threat, in some cases the adjacent
buildings should be evacuated next.
According to Mr Ferguson, there are
many reasons for bomb threats.
"Sometimes people just want to get off
from work, so they call in a threat," he
said. "But you cannot take it for granted


that its a hoax call, you have to go and
investigate."
The police have said they are working
together with the Bahamas Telecommu-
nications Corporation (BTC) to trace the
calls and find the culprits.
Charges will reportedly be pressed
against any suspects, as making threat-
ening calls is a criminal offence.
The Tribune left several messages for
Controller of Customs John Rolle. None
of the calls were returned up to press time
yesterday.

PARENTS and teachers
must take the initiative to
help children who are weak
in reading before they reach
fourth grade, reading instruc-
tor Martha Evans warned.
Ms Evans works at the
Garden Hills Community
Reading Camp, which caters
to students from all around
New Providence.
The programme,, which is
held at SC McPherson High
School on Baillou Hill Road,
focuses on bringing children
who have fallen behind up
to their appropriate reading
level.
Ms Evans, a counsellor at
South Abaco High School,
said that it is harder to reach
students after fifth grade,
because they enter "the pre-
puberty stage".
"It is going to take more
than a summer programme
to help these kids because
the parents have to get
involved," she said. "When it
is initially detected that a
child isn't performing at his
or her reading level, parents
need to get help for them
right away.

Grand


Bahama


left in the


dark by

outage


* By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport
Reporter
FREEPORT - The majority
of the Grand Bahama Power
Company's 18,750 customers
were left in the dark on Monday
evening as a result of a major.
power outage.
Company officials reported
on Tuesday that a defect in one
of the 69,000-volt transmission
lines caused a loss of power to
about 13,000 customers in
Freeport Lucaya and East
Grand Bahama.
Some areas of Freeport
reportedly retained power, how-
ever the other two areas were
completely in the dark.
Roger Johnson, director of
community and customer rela-
tions for the company, said the
interruption in power occurred
around 11.06pm Monday.
He said that power was fully
restored by 2.30am on Tuesday.
The company apologised to
its customers for the interrup-
tions.
Many residents of Grand
Bahama, particularly in the
Freeport area, also experienced
problems with telephone ser-
vices on Tuesday.
Residents with phone num-
bers with the prefix 373 could
make any outgoing calls or
receive incoming calls as of mid-
day.
The Tribune was unable to
reach officials at the Bahamas
Telecommunication Company
(BTC) up to press time on
Tuesday regarding the inter-
ruptions.
Up until 5.30pm, telephone
services had still not been
restored.

Alcoa and
Bechtel
examining
smelter
* TRINIDAD
Port-of-Spain
ALCOA Inc has selected
engineering giant Bechtel Corp.
as its partner in completing a
feasibility study for its proposed
US$1.5 billion aluminum
smelter in Trinidad, a compa-
ny spokesman said Tuesday,
according to Associated Press.
The study for the proposed
smelter at Cap-de-Ville on
Trinidad's southwest coast was
expected to be completed by
San Francisco-based Bechtel by
year's end, Hughes said.
Last week, Trinidad's Envi-
ronmental Management
Authority accepted Alcoa's
application for an environmen-
tal review at the site. The Penn-
sylvania-based Alcoa company
must complete an environmen-
tal impact assessment, which
requires that the project's pos-
sible environmental and health
effects are made known to the
public before the deal is final-
ized.
Hughes said the company
hopes to start construction next
year. The smelter would pro--
duce 375,890 tons of aluminum
annually and employ up to 800
workers.' Alcoa would own it.
The proposed aluminum
smelter by Alcoa, the largest
aluminum'producer in the
world, has met some opposition
in the Caribbean nation.

Is farming an issue



for the Bahamas?


THE World Trade Organi-
sation's plan to cut farming
subsidies in developing coun-
tries is "insulting" according
to Agriculture and Marine
Resources Minister Leslie
Miller.
Mr Miller said that countries
like the Bahamas will not ben-
efit from t h-' plan.
He said that many develop.-
ing countries are in danger of
crippling their own economy.
by joining the WTO.
With this in mind, The Tri-
bune took to the streets yes-
terday to ask members of the
public how important they feel
farming is to the future of the
Bahamas.
Crystal Johnson said: "We,
can't depend on other coun-
tries forever. I think farming is
very important. If there is
another 9/1'i we need to be
able to feed ourselves."
Ms Johnson pointed that the
Bahamas need not attempt to
revolutionise the entire econ-
omy, as what begins as a small-
scale exercise in "tapping into
local resources" could eventu-
ally bloom into a significant
export industry.
"We have the land and the
resources but the younger
Bahamians are focused on the


American way of living," said
Stevanyia Johnson. "That's
why the cost of living among
other things is so high -
because we are not tapping
into our resources.

"No other efforts are being
placed on developments other
than tourism-based projects.
As a people we need to think
about the Ifuture of our COun'-

Mitchell Thurston said:

tant thing for the future of the

Cable Beach Resorts


staff are right at home


CABLE Beach Resorts has
partnered with two leading cor-
porate entities to make it easi-
er for employees to own their
dream home - as early as
December 2006.
A wide cross-section of
Cable Beach Resorts staff
turned up in Salon A and B of
the Wyndham Nassau Resort
to learn about the employee
benefits initiative and the new
relationship between Scotia-
bank Limited, Arawak Homes
and Cable Beach Resorts.
Speaking to the staff,
Arawak Homes chairman
Franklyn Wilson explained that
his company is "very commit-
ted and will move mountains
to get at least 30 of you in
homes by Christmas of this
year, if you commit by the end
of this month of July."
Pointing out that "rent is


dead money," Mr Wilson said
there is much financial wisdom
in home ownership, as renters
do not build equity and there-
fore miss an opportunity to
earn capital gains.
"It is better to act now to
purchase a home," he added,
"because the monthly payment
will be lower for a younger per-
son than it is for an older per-
son."
According to Mr Wilson,
CBR executives were extreme-
ly timely in the launch of the
employee benefits programme,
because interest rates in the
Bahamas are at an all time low,
which translates into borrow-
ers requiring less family income
and having lower monthly pay-
ments.
With the opportunity avail-
able, many employees were
concerned about the costs


involved in home ownership -
which includes in most
instances a 5 per cent down-
payment, plus closing costs.
However, these concerns were
addressed by Scotiabank's
Bruno Styles.
According to Mr Styles, sav-
ing is key to building up a "nest
egg" for any purpose, particu-
larly for the down-payment on
a home.
He stated that once all nec-
essary documents are submit-
ted, a bank can give condition-
al approval in about 24 hours.
Reminding employees that
they are working in "a most
promising sector with a solid
future for many years to
come," CBR vice-president of
administration and external
affairs Robert Sands said:
"You must take advantage of,
this progressive step to bring


together Scotiabank and
Arawak Homes to create the
opportunity to own your
homes."
Mr Sands told staff that they


are among the highest earners
in the country, but he also
admonished them about bad
spending habits.
Charging them with the


responsibility of prioritising
their spending and re-focusing
their lives, Mr Sands encour-
aged the employees to take full
advantage of the initiative.

Rise in mentally ill people on




streets 'due to lack of resources'


FROM page one


have rapid growth that has chal-
lenges, with urbanization being
one of them."
Dr Beneby said that the sup-
port systems in a developing
country, in spite of the devel-
opment and improvement, are
not keeping pace with some of
these challenges of people who
are falling through the cracks
or not coping, calling it a weak-
ness of developing societies.
"The way we as a people deal
with the weakest members of
our society reflects the degree
of civilization of our society,"
said Dr Beneby. "One has to
take that into the context of the
entire society and all of its
resources, and resources are not
only, as we so often think, gov-
ernment resources."


Many of these individuals,
said Dr .Beneby, have been
affected in different ways, and
have become socially unaccept-
able, stigmatized because of
observations. People, he con-
tinued, have to be educated and
understand what is going on
with these individuals.
Dr Beneby was addressing
particular concerns about a
seemingly mentally deranged
woman who, on several occa-
sions over the past few weeks,
has been seen bathing nude in
the parking lot of an establish-
ment on the corner of Nassau
Street and Boyd Road.
Pointing out that he is not a
mental health expert, Dr Bene-
by said that as citizens of the
Bahamas we should share the
responsibility for these individ-
uals.


"Before we had the degree
of advancement that we have,
we had good support systems
where a family member would
provide, talk, and 'cover' them,"
said Dr Beneby. "Certainly you
wouldn't have people being
exposed on the streets."
"We talk so much about com-
munity initiatives," Dr Beneby
continued, "but the community
as a whole has to provide the
support."
"This is a condition that
begins in the social setting first.
That is where the challenge is.
In my opinion there should be
people in that community who,
if they were to take on the inter-
est, who can prevent this per-
son from behaving that way in
the public."
Not wanting to place all of
the responsibility on the pub-


lic, however, Dr Beneby said
that no single initiativewill
address the problems facing
New Providence's mentally
deranged. He also noted that
the health care system has also
failed these "social misfits.'1,
"Yes, you need the comfndfl-
nity centre, the half way h6uise,
and the occupational place'for
these persons. You need more
people trained in expertise"to
work in those places, and you
need the funding to support it,
but you need that to be inte-
grated in such a manner 'that
the outcome is beneficia't1tb
society," Dr Beneby said. '-. -
"The Bahamas," B'e noted,
"has made tremendous strides
in the delivery of healtthf~e
services."
However, in all of these afAs
the progress has not beeniThe
same, and the focus on active
tertiary health care medicine '
has got the primary focus. '
"Until now, what we calt fe
chronic conditions, wh eh
involve more of the social fiber
has not gotten the same I l
of attention," said Dr Ben b.
"So going forward, becausevwe
can't stop acute care, we .ne.ed
to share the focus with public
health, which would include
some of these community
issues."
"We have resource chal-
lenges," he said, "but it does
not mean we are not making
progress. It speaks to the fact
that the progress that we are
making is not in pace with oth-
er social developments in your
society. And we need to, as a
country, as a people, deal with
all of those things that I've talk
about. Not just institutionalized
care.
"I would be the first to admit
to you that we could improve
the capacity and resources of
all of our centres, including
Sandilands, but in the same
breath I must say that we must
also increase the capacity of the
society to deal with these issues
as well."

"Many of the packing houses in the
Family Islands, most of their equipment
doesn't work. Eleuthera is a good exam-
ple, where you have a nice packing house
but the apparatus has been broken down
for the past few years. The extension offi-
cers haven't visited the place for years,"
he said.
Mr Miller noted that farming in the
Bahamas hasn't even scratched the sur-
face of where it could, or should be.
"The problem we have with the farm-
ers is that we need to work more closely
with them, so they can produce the prod-
ucts that are needed in the Bahamian mar-
ket. A good example is that this year,
when all of the farmers, or the majority of
them, went and started to produce cab-
bage. There was an over abundance of


cabbage on the market this year, and my
ministry ended up dumping about 50 per
cent of the cabbage that was sent to our
packing house, and subsequently sent to
New Providence.
"Because there was an over abundance.
The hotels couldn't take the cabbage. The
food stores couldn't take the cabbage. So
the cabbage just sit and rot. We really
need the extension officers in my ministry
to go to the Family Islands. We need some
major changes to take place in the ministry
for all the people to get on board," he
said.
In his official capacity, and in order to
push this new campaign, Mr Miller has
visited Eleuthera, Abaco and Andros. He
will visit Long Island next week. Mr Miller
said that he plans to visit every farming
community in the Bahamas before Parlia-
ment reconvenes from its summer break.

THE TRIBUNE


Exuma concern on Haitian landings
: cocr onj


*J:$ y TRIBUNE STAFF WRITER
,'PEOPLE in Exuma fear their
ig!nd has now become the new
"ifbospot" for Haitian immigration,
with boatloads of refugees turning
up every month in search of work.
*-,Residents say hundreds of immi-
grants line the roads into George
Town every morning in the hope of
picking up a day's employment, then
go back into the bush if they are
unsuccessful.
,"It's getting crazy," said one
source. "the police tell us they are
qnjibl to do anything about it unless
asked by the immigration depart-
ment. And immigration has only
four guys down here - they are out-
numbered by immigrants by at least
100 to one."
With the political situation in Haiti
once again in a precarious state, even
though elections were held less than


three months ago, the Bahamas can
expect a continued influx of refugees.
And with Exuma now gaining a
reputation as a resort development
centre, more and more Haitians are
expected to turn up on the island.
"They are landing every month
on the south eastern side of the
island," said Mr Collingwood Turn-
quest. "Between 6.30 and 8.30 every
morning, they are on the roadside
waiting to be hired.
"Then, after about 9.30am, they
go back into the bush. They are out
on the street every day. Everyone is
talking about it. There are so many
of them that there is not enough
work.
"They are coming because there is
work in Exuma and there is no resis-
tance. They just land and walk
through the bush. I gather there are
not enough immigration people here
to enforce the law, and police are not


allowed to touch them unless they
have permission from immigration."
Locals are particularly alarmed
because of the recent malaria out-
break. They believe poor sanitation
among the immigrants is creating a
serious health hazard.
Residents are asking why author-
ities are apparently turning a blind
eye to the problem.
Yesterday, both police and immi-
gration officials in Exuma said they
were not authorised to discuss the
situation.
The Tribune was referred to the
Immigration Department in Nassau,
however no calls to senior officials
were returned up to press time.


* HAITIANS are reportedly
arriving regularly on Exuma in
vessels like this one


Lawyer: there's been



no feedback in



months over alleged



beating of journalist


1FROM page one

Mrs Canton has been awaiting the follow-up from
,ME Whylly, who is stationed at the Bahamas Con-
sulate in Miami. In her original conversation with
-him she reported that he was very cooperative.
-,Mr Whylly, who has been the law firm's contact
.person for the past few months, is expected to launch
-an internal investigation to find out if anything has
-moved along with the investigations.
. The last time Univision had any contact with the
Bahamas Government was during the initial meeting
ijoyMiami in February immediately following the
,incident, when a government representative was
-being interviewed. During that meeting Consul Gen-
eral Alma Adams, Mr Whylly and several govern-
.ment officials were present. At the conclusion of


that meeting Mrs Canton was given the impression
that she would have sone information by this time.
On February 7, Mario Vallejo, a newscaster with
Univision, was reportedly beaten by a Defence Force
officer while filming a Cuban family reunion outside
the C'armichael Road Detention Centre.
Vallejo was covering the reunion of seven Cubans
rescued several weeks ago at Elbow Cay and their
relatives who flew in from Miami to meet them. It is
reported that Mr Vallejo was hit in the face with a
baton while using the public telephone outside the
Centre, and dragged into the facility.
General Manager of Univision wrote a letter of
complaint to the Bahamas Government and the
American Ambassador asking for a full investigation
into the beating of their staff member. According to
Mrs Canton, so far government has submitted no
report.

ruli'*ng in Kozeny



extradi*tion hearing


FROM page one
ble to the investor's extradition case.
They claimed that, under Bahamian
extradition law, the Bahamas is not
required to establish jurisdiction over
transnational bribery but only domestic
bribery offences. They also claimed that
the Inter-American Convention Against
Corruption does not apply retroactively
as the offences for which the investor has
been accused were allegedly committed
before the convention came into opera-
tion.
Mr,Nichols also submitted that the
alleged offences took place in Azerbaijan
and not the Bahamas, as is the require-
ment under that convention.
Kozeny was arrested at his Lyford Cay


home on October 5,2005, just a few hours
after being indicted on a long list of
bribery and money-laundering charges
by the US District Court in Manhattan.
Having been denied bail, Kozeny has
been on remand at Fox Hill Prison since
October 7. Relative to his extradition
hearing, Kozeny has made several
appearances in Magistrate Carolita
Bethel's court.
Kozeny is accused of being the driving
force behind a multi-million dollar
bribery scheme which sought to corrupt
Azerbaijan officials so as to gain a con-
trolling interest in that country's state-
owned oil company SOCAR during its
privatization process in the mid-1990s.
The US is seeking Kozeny's extradition to
face money-laundering and corruption
charges. ,u

131'Haitians apprehended


in Bahamian territory


* By TIFFANY GRANT
Tribune Staff Reporter
ONE-HUNDRED and forty
five Haitian migrants were
apprehended in waters in the
central Bahamas on Monday
evening.
The Haitian nationals were
intercepted by Defence Force
officers approximately eight
miles north-west of Farmer's
Cay at 6pm on Monday.
The 129 males and 16 females
were found aboard an unsani-
tary and unseaworthy 40ft Hait-
ian freighter, and claimed to


have left Port-Aux-Paix on Fri-
day.
The vessel was towed to
Black Point, Exuma where the
migrants were removed.
Eighty of the immigrants
were brought to Nassau at 5am
yesterday morning for process-
ing and detention. The remain-
ing 65 were expected to arrive
at the Defence Force's Base
Tuesday evening.
A Defence Force statement
said that officers have taken
into custody three Haitian ves-
sels during the past three weeks.
However, during this same peri-


od, two Haitian boats were able
to evade detection and landed
in eastern New Providence.
In less than a month, it has
been reported that 301 Haitian
nationals have been intercepted
at sea by the Defence Force.
Lieutenant Darren Henfield,
Defence Force public relations
officer, said: "It's no secret that
we are challenged in the area
of material, but we will continue
to strategically deploy the assets
at our disposal, as best we can,
to address this latest apparent
increase in movement by our
Haitian neighbours,"

Baha Mar to issue


West Bay


tender before August 10


* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

Baha Mar Devel-
opment Compa-
ny plans to issue
tender docu-
ments to pre-
qualified contractors for the
roadworks to re-route West
Bay Street "certainly before
August 10", The Tribune was
told yesterday.
Robert Sands, executive
vice-president of administra-
tion and public affairs for the
developer behind the $2 bil-
lion Cable Beach revamp, said
Baha Mar was "finalising" its
list of pre-qualified companies,
and planned to issue the tender
documents for the West Bay
Street re-routing at a press
conference with the Govern-
ment.
"It is envisioned to happen
before August 10 - to have a
tendering ceremony, confer-
ence where documents are
issued to pre-qualified compa-
nies tendering on the road-


works," Mr Sands said.
He added that the road-
works would include both the
re-routed West Bay Street, tak-
ing it around the planned
Cable Beach resort campus,
and 'corridor seven'. This
refers to the road that will con-
nect Baha Mar's development
to JFK Drive, and act as the
main route bringing guests to
the resort from Sir Lynden
Pindling International Airport.
Mr Sands described as "an
ongoing process" the obtain-
ing of all necessary govern-
ment permits and approvals
for the roadworks to begin,
adding that the developer was
"working" to deal with all out-
standing issues.
He explained that road-
works by their nature involved
a great deal of planning, with
Baha Mar having to liaise with
the utilities - Bahamas Elec-
tricity Corporation, Bahamas
Telecommunications Compa-
ny and Water & Sewerage
Corporation - as well as the
Ministry of Public Wprks and


Rooms remaining open during Radisson upgrade to

account for 80% of resort's usual business levels


the Bahamas Environment,
Science and Technology
(BEST) Commission.
Mr Sands said Baha Mar
also had to deal with the Min-
istry of Finance on the gov-
ernment financing side.
He added: "It's not a simple
task, but a documented process
was provided by the Ministry
of Works and we've been fol-
lowing that process.
"We're getting there. Things
are actually happening. A
tremendous amount of work
is taking place."
The existing West Bay Street
will only be closed once the re-
routed road is completed and
opened.
The roadworks are a vital
first step in Baha Mar's pro-
ject, as re-routing West Bay


Street will open up land for the
rest of its redevelopment plans.
Following on close behind
the re-routing will be con-
struction of the Commercial
Village, which will house the
relocated commercial banks -
Scotiabank, Fidelity Bank
(Bahamas), and Common-
wealth Bank - and the Gov-
ernment buildings - the Cecil
Wallace-Whitfield Centre,
police station, and Gaming
Board and Bahama Develop-
ment Bank,
These relocations, which are
being .done at Baha Mar's
expense, will only be carried
out once the Commercial Vil-
lage is completed.
Meanwhile, Mr Sands said
the $80 million renovation of
the Radisson Cable Beach


Resort would have minimal
impact on business, as 350
rooms would remain open dur-
ing the first phase.
In the first phase, apart from
the public spaces on the lob-
by level, some 350 rooms in
the Radisson will be closed.
However, the 50 per' cent of
room inventory remaining
open equated to about four
fifths of the business the Radis-
son was expected to attract
during the tourism season's tra-
ditionally slower period, Mr
Sands explained.
He said that the 350 rooms
remaining open represented
"80 per cent of what we will
do in terms of business during
the lean months, especially
September, October and
November, even December


until the third week".
Mr Sands said the first phase
of the Radisson redevelop-
ment, which was awarded to
Osprey Developers, is sched-
uled to be completed by March'
2007, in time for the Easter.
period.
'He added that the second'
phase largely involved an over-
haul of the resort's rooms, not
the public spaces, meaning that
it would be "done much quick-"
er".
The entire Radisson project
is expected to be completed by
September 2007, and Mr Sands
said Baha Mar was "still work-
ing towards finalising" the
Radisson's rebranding as a
Sheraton resort with the lat-
ter's parent company and fran-,
chisor, Starwood.

Investor's Freeport

spend may hit $500m


* By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport
Reporter
FREEPORT - Prime Minis-
ter Perry Christie said the total
investment in Freeport by
Danish investor Preben Olsen
and his New Hope Holdings ,
Company could eventually
amount to $500 million.
Speaking as the Grand
Bahama Port Authority signed
a $6.8 million contract with Mr
Olsen's company for the sale
of Port Lucaya Marina, and
nearby property for the con-
struction of a $20 million con-
do-hotel, Mr Christie said the
acquisition was a demonstra-
tion of confidence in the
Freeport economy.
Also attending the signing
were Hannes Babak, Grand
Bahama Port Authority chair-
man, Sir Albert Miller, its chief
executive, and Minister of
Tourism, Obie Wilchcombe.
Mr Olsen, who acquired the
Lucayan Marina Village last
year, plans to combine both
marina facilities to be able to
attract mega yachts from the
US and European markets.
With building permits
already in hand, Mr Olsen has
brought in a barge load of
'building equipment and sup-
plies to begin construction of
the new condo hotel. He has
also announced plans to host
some 35 to 40 mega yachts in
November at Port Lucaya.
The Prime Minister said: "I
would like to thank you all for
allowing me to participate in
what is another step in the new


efforts to promote and rede-
fine? the business community
in Freeport, the tourism envi-
ronment in Freeport, and in
Grand Bahama.
"So, in essence this is a good
day for Freeport. It comes at a
time when government is mak-
ing major efforts to reposition
the tourism industry in Grand
Bahama, where we are mov-
ing quickly with respect to the
reintroduction.of Royal Oasis
into the economy of Freeport,
where I am very optimistic that
we are headed in the right way,
and in the right direction.
"And this is great encour-
agement to us when we see we
have someone from Denmark,
yet again, who is prepared to
come in and invest so hand-
somely in this island's econo-
my."
On the question of the Roy-
al Oasis, sources have told The
Tribune that the Florida-led
group has emerged as the
front-runner for the resort
ahead of Harcourt Develop-
ments, and is lining up a Las
Vegas hotel/casino as its oper-
ating partner. Both are still
negotiating with the holder of
the mortgage and debenture
on the Royal Oasis, Lehman
Brothers' private equity arm.
Meanwhile, Mr Babak said
the investment by New Hope
Holdings would bring a lot of
employment to the Freeport
area, which was much needed.
"I am very happy we can get
together to sign the agreement

IS crime out of control? Can
we manage this problem? The
first few weeks of 2006 may
lead us to believe otherwise.
As mentioned a few weeks
ago, we have seen a major
spike in the amount of criminal
activity. The police really have
their hands full.
But is crime a police prob-
lem? Take, for example, the
repair man, be he a plummer
or mechanic. Is the fact your
septic tank has backed up, or
your car is unable to start, real-
ly his problem? When we con-
sider it, the issue may have
been transferred to the police,
but crime is really our prob-
lem.
So, what are we going to do,
realistically, to solve the prob-
lem? There are many suggest-
ed solutions, primarily focused
on the concept of harsher
penalties.There are calls from
the public for longer sentences
and hangings. These remedies,
I feel, are at the other end of
the spectrum, similar to using a
bigger mop to soak up the spill.
However, my concern is how
we prevent the spill in the first
place.
Phillip Purpura. in his book
Security and Loss Prevention,
states: "In many businesses, so
many people are stealing that
those who do not steal are the


deviants and outcast: theft
becomes normal and honest
becomes abnormal."
What makes people steal is
the question this article will
attempt to unravel, as it is key
to managing the problem. The
old adage: walking in one's
shoes to see how they think, is
essential if companies desire
to reduce loss via this avenue.
Aside from crime statistics
provided by the Royal
Bahamas Police Force, and
studies done by other groups
such as the Coalition of Pri-
vate Sector Organisations,
there is very little documented
information about employee
theft in the Bahamas.
Psychologists, sociologists
and criminologists have strug-
gled for years to understand
and describe the motivations
of dishonest individuals. These
disciplines have provided
numerous studies in an effort
to identify personality traits
and characteristics most fre-
quently associated with theft
or fraud. They have also
attempted to identify social
forces and environmental fac-
tors that contribute to, or
might explain, why certain
individuals are dishonest and
others are not. Only recently
have these studies been direct-
ed at white collar crime, as the
focus has been on violent
crimes such as rapes, murders
and bank robbers. *
This all changed when, in the
early 1980s, researchers from
the University of Minnesota,
John Clark and Richard


Hollinger, published the results
of an extensive three-year
study, they conducted on
employee theft. This landmark
study identified five character-
istics to explain the phenome-
non of employee theft. They
are.........
1. External Economic
Pressures
Prior to this study, the most
frequent explanation of
employee theft was that
employees stole from their
employers because they had a
personal problem involving
alcohol, gambling, illicit affairs,
or similar situations.
This position asserts that
"when economic pressures
become great, people may turn
to illegitimate means to
achieve socially acceptable
goals". Clark and Hollinger
observed that the connection
between the nature of eco-
nomic needs - and the manner
in which the stolen materials
satisfy those needs - had not


yet been established.
2. Youth and Work
Another commonly
expressed theory said that
younger employees are simply
not as honest or hardworking
as previous generations. Cited
were two studies of retail
employees caught in the act of
stealing merchandise.
Both studies indicated a dis-
proportionate number' of
younger, newly-hired employ-
ees were involved in theft.
However, no clear and con-
vincing evidence existed to
confirm this theory.
3. Opportunity
The opportunity to steal
items of value was considered
one of the primary factors in
employee theft by security
practitioners. It was generally
held that every employee is

Internet problems


* By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Business Reporter
SOME Cable Bahamas
Coralwave customers have
been inconvenienced for the
past several days, as a glitch in
the Internet service has pre-
vented them from sending any
e-mail to non-Coralwave
addresses.
According to one customer
who brought the matter to The
Tribune's attention, although
clients could receive e-mail,
they could not reply or send
e-mails to any address that did
not end with @coralwave.com.
Any that did all bounced back
to the sender.
However, they were able to
send or reply to e-mail that had
a Coralwave address. The


problem is understood to be
impacting subnets, or groups
of Cable Bahamas' customers,
but not all are affected.
The customer, who asked
not to be named, said it was a
big inconvenience, especially
for companies who send a vast
amount of e-mails related to
business transactions on any
given day.
"We have really become
quite reliant on e-mails, so you
can imagine the disruption this
must have caused for business
for transactions, and for stores
who e-mail in their orders,"
the source said.
The customer, who works
near downtown, said they
were aware of several Coral-
wave customers in that imme-
diate area with the same prob-


lem.
The customer said that when
they contacted Cable
Bahamas, the company said it
was aware of the problem and
had its technical team working
to address the situation as
quickly as possible. They were
told that the problem was the
result of a fibre-axial glitch.
As of yesterday, some e-
mails were going through, but
the source said the situation
was not entirely resolved.
The Tribune contacted Keith
Wisdom, director of Public
Affairs for Cable Bahamas,
who said Barry Williams in the
technical department would
contact the paper with a state-
ment. Nothing was received
before press deadline last
night, though.


Saunders resigns from


Abaco Markets Board


* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
WILLIAM Saunders, owner of Majestic
Tours, resigned from the Abaco Markets Board
just before the company's annual general meet-
ing (AGM) on Monday night, sources have
told The Tribune.
The reasons for Mr Saunders' resignation
have not been disclosed, although it is not
thought to be related to him taking a Board
seat with BSL Holdings, the company on the
verge of completing the $54 million acquisi-
tion of a 78 per cent stake in rival Bahamas
Supermarkets.
Abaco Markets is itself an investor in BSL
Holdings, planning to take a 10 per cent stake
worth $2.5 million, and several of its directors
are investors in an individual capacity.
Among them are Abaco Markets chairman
and-chief executive, Craig Symonette, and
Franklyn Butler. Several sources have told The


Tribune that Mr Butler's resignation from Aba-
co Markets' Board is to enable him to take a
seat on the BSL Board, and thus avoid any
perceived conflict of interest.
Abaco Markets' Board has thus been
reduced in the past few weeks to just five
remaining directors - Mr Symonette, Frank
Crothers, Dionisio D'Aguilar, Louis Dames,
and Robert Sands. The latter two are repre-
senting the interests of the hotel industry pen-
sion funds, which are major investors in Abaco
Markets.
The AGM is understood to have been told
that Malcolm Pinder resigned from the Abaco
Markets Board due to the fact that the com-
pany was in the process of selling all its Abaco-
based operations, meaning that a director from
that island was no longer required.
In addition, Barry Malcolm was said to have
resigned so he could focus on other interests,
although he would still act as a consultant to the.
company on its Freeport interests. .

per revealed that Mr Olsen
was on the verge of concluding
the deal last week Wednesday.
Mr Olsen explained that
there was a huge market for
mega yachts.
"Right now, as we speak


there are 5.4 miles of mega
yachts under construction
worldwide, and a very large
number of these yachts will be
coming in here," he said.
Mr Olsen, a commercial, res-
idential and industrial devel-
oper in Florida for many years,
saw great opportunities for
boating in the Bahamas dur-
ing a trip to the islands.
"I came in here as a boater
and saw the great opportuni-
ties in the boating world here.
And when I got to know Erik
Christiansen, who had, accord-
ing to Florida Cruising Guide,
the only five-star marina in the
Bahamas, we certainly had a
very keen interest in being able
to develop that further," he
added.
"One of the first things we
did when we got involved with
Lucayan Marina Village was
to change the size of the boat
slips to accommodate larger
boats. And, obviously, that is
why it became obvious that
this marina at [Port Lucaya]
would really give some better
opportunities.
"A lot of these boats travel
in large groups, and we have
already made plans for a mega
yacht rendezvous in Novem-
ber, where we will have about

35 mega yachts coming into
this area, and we could not
accommodate that with one
marina."
Mr Olsen has assured all of
the employees at Port Lucaya
Marina that they will be
retained by New Hope Hold-
ings.
Together
"We have put together two
of the finest teams of employ-
ees I have ever worked with. I
think the people at Port
Lucaya Marina and people we
have at Grand Bahama Yacht
Club make a fantastic team.
They are all pros and know the
boating industry and will all
stay on board," he said.
According to Mr Olsen,


marketing of the marina is pri-
marily being carried out at
boat shows and through pub-
licity in boating magazines.
"It is going to be more peo-
ple coming in, and the fact that
we are combining the two
marinas, we will be working
with a lot bigger budget to pro-
mote the area," he added.
In addition to the marina
expansion and new condo
hotel, Mr Olsen revealed that
New Hope is building high-end
homes up to a value of $12 mil-
lion over at the Lucayan Mari-
na Village.
"We are also building a
beach club at Taino Beach,
and so there is going to be a lot
of opportunities for Bahami-
ans in the construction jobs,"
he said.

between the GB Port Author-
ity, DEVCO and Mr Olsen,
which will allow him to com-
bine the two marinas and cre-
ate a new environment, where
he will haye a completely dif-
ferent project to market this
mega marina in the US and
other countries," Mr Babak
said.
Sir Albert is confident that
Mr Olsen will live up to his
promises for Port Lucaya.
He added: "We think he will
deliver on his various promises,
and it can do nothing but good
for Freeport and expand the
area of Port Lucaya, and hotels
in this area. So we are very
grateful to Mr Olsen today for
demonstrating his confidence
in Freeport, and in the gov-
ernment of the Bahamas
because we believe that expan-
sion of Freeport is good."
Mr Christie said he expects
to be present in Freeport for
the condo hotel ground break-
ing in the next three to four
weeks. The new hotel, he said,
would represent an additional
200 rooms to Grand Bahama's
room inventory.
"Some months ago, when I
met Erik Christiansen and he
introduced me to Prebcn
Olsen, I had the opportunity
to hear the vision of Mr 01..,,.
Anrd this morning, IU be
reminded -f tha! vYe again a
see this occasion - . : i.. .,
one in which a wealthy man,
or wealthy group, is demon-
strating confidence .in
Freeport," the Prime Minister
said.,
"Psee this as an addition to
-Freeport, and an addition in
the context of someone who
can play a leading role in help
ing us define the way forward
in the future for our efforts in
promoting this as a first class,
world-class tourism destina-
tion.
"L am also encouraged by
the nature of your place of ori-
gin that you will be attracting
investors from Europe, people
who would wish to purchase a
second home and to be of the
category - in terms of wealth of
people - who would also seek
the potential to invest further
on this island."
Mr Christie said the devel-
opment by Ginn Clubs &
Resorts, and its president Bob-
by Ginn, in West Grand
Bahama will also help to repo-
sition Freeport. *
"I have every reason to
know and to express the great-
est degree of confidence in the
future of Grand Bahama," the
Prime Minister said.
"Last week, I indicated that
Grand Bahama will be hard
pressed not to be the leading
island in our Commonwealth,
notwithstanding New Provi-


dence as it is today. Just by the
very nature of your size and
geo-physical relationship with
the'US, the tip being 40 nauti-
cal miles from Palm Beach,
tells anyone looking at the
future of this country, that
there is going to be great eco-
nomic buoyancy in the econo-
my of Grand Bahama.
"I know you are mindful'of
the fact that one of America's
greatest developers, Bobby
Ginn, is developing in the
western part of this island.
That in itself will help to repo-
sition Freeport, and to cause
there to be recognition of the
sophistication of Freeport........


Mr Christie added: "Based
on what I am in fact now doing
with respect to Royal Oasis,
and based on what I cannot
talk about in terms of the econ-
omy, I havelno doubt in the
coming weeks and months that
everyone would be able to see
who have eyes, and would wish
to hear who have ears. the rea-
son why I have been able to
express such unbridled opti-
mism about the future of this
island.

tempted to steal from his
employer at one time or anoth-
er during their career, based
on their opportunity to steal.
This theory was also never
empirically studied until Clark
and Hollinger's research in
1983.
4. Job Dissatisfaction
The idea that there is a cause
and effect between job dissat-
isfaction and employee theft
had not been included in most
studies of workplace theft until
Clark and Hollinger conducted
theirs. The theory suggests that
the company from whom
employees steal may influence
such theft because manage-
ment, directly or indirectly, is
responsible for job dissatisfac-
tion based on the perceptions
of their employees.
5. Social Control
The social control theory


suggests that the broadly-
shared formal and informal
social structure within a com-
pany greatly influences
whether theft persists or not.
Although not empirically
tested until Clark and
Hollinger's study, it empha-
sised the role individual work
group norms played in deter-
ring workplace theft. In addi-
tion, there was evidence in
existing studies that theorised a
relationship between supervi-
sors/management, personnel
and employees in deterring or
encouraging theft behaviour
by employees.
Both theories are similar to
the deterrence doctrine, which
assumes the threat of negative
social sanctions from the com-
pany or authorities can affect
the amount of theft in a firm.
In essence, employees will be
more likely to steal if they per-
ceive the threat of detection
and/or punishment for this
behaviour to be weak or non-
existent.
Regardless, the two primary

objectives here are to reduce
the events of theft and fraud
in the workplace. The compa-
ny must be clear on identifying
and uniformly sanctioning
unacceptable behaviour, and
penalising persons for infrac-
tions.
As a result, regulations
regarding theft by employees
must be clear and frequently
reiterated to ensure prohibi-
tions regarding such activity
are understood by all employ-
ees. In my opinion, the mes-
sage concerning loss preven-
tion and penalties resulting
from such action is lost - or
even neglected - during pre-
employment orientations for,
new workers, and never again
addressed until someone is
actually caught stealing.
Companies cannot rely sole-
ly on negative sanctions from
society to apply to the work-
place. Individual sanctions
within the company are impor-
tant to help mold the culture
and make certain expectations


are clear. Enforcing the sanC *
tions must also be uniform. It
takes only one incident irn '"'
which managerial employees ,-
are given preferential treat-
ment to undermine the entire
policy. Negative sanctions for
theft must apply to everyone in
order to be effective, and man-
agement must be prepared to

MIAMI HERALD SPORTS _


trial American and
Caribbean Games (CAC)
just got a little better, now
that track and field has start-
ed.
Having already secured
five medals in swimming, the
Bahamas opened up the first
day of competition with six
athletes advancing to the
semi-finals, set to take place
late yesterday evening.
Advancing through to last
night's semis were Derrick
Atkins, Jamal Rolle, Andret-
ti Bain, Michael Mathieu,
Tamicka Clarke and
Savetheda Fynes.
Atkins, the national
record holder in the 100m,
finished up second in his
heat while Rolle was third in
his respective heat. The
women's 100m went straight
to the semi-final rounds,
with both Clarke and Fynes
automatically advancing.
Bain and Mathieu will
head into the semi-finals
with the third and fourth
fastest times.
The times from the first
round of competition were
not available up until press
time.
On hand to witness the
early performances was team
manager Ralph McKinney,
who said the ighletes will
have to keep hydrated if
they want to go all the way.
McKinney described the
weather conditions as "siz-
zling hot and very humid."
He said: "There is a good
chance for the Bahamas to
secure at least three to four
medals on the night. We will
be looking forward to wit-
nessing the finals of the
men's 100m.
"We just might just wit-
ness a new national record
set by Derrick Atkins, he
may just pull this one of as
he looks towards a gold
medal. We aren't counting
Jamal out of the hunt either
- he should be able to run a
fast time that will get him a
medal."
Atkins recently set the
national record in the 100m
for men less than a month
ago at the under 23 NACAC
championships. The record
is set at 10.14 seconds.
Although many of the top
athletes from around the
English speaking Caribbean
opted not to participate in
the games, due to scheduled
races on the European cir-
cuit, McKinney reminded
the Bahamian public that the
Spanish speaking Caribbean
countries made sure that all
of their athletes were com-
peting.
McKinney pointed to the -
women's 400m, where Mexi-
co's national record holder
Anna Guervara will take to
the track. Currently ranked
seventh in the world, Gue-
vara will be the only athlete
who tops the IAAF world
ranking list to compete.
Bahamas national record
holder in the 400m Tonique
Williams-Darling and
Olympian finalist Christine
Amertil will be competing in
the Norwich Union London
Grand Prix.
As a result, the Bahamas
turned to the junior quarter-
milers for representation,
but they were unable to
compete.
McKinney said: "We had
some difficulties with enter-
ing the 400m runners in the
women's division. Shekeitha
(Henfield) and Sasha (Rolle)
were listed to run the 400m,
but due to technical prob-
lems we were unable to
enter their names.
"When we realized the
problem it was a little to late,
but these two athletes are
the only athletes who were
unable to compete in their
individual races."
Also scheduled to com-
pete yesterday evening was
national record holder in the


100m hurdles Tiavannia
Thompson, followed by the
men's 400m finals for both
men and women.

Senior Sports Reporter

WHILE the athletic com-
petition at the XX Central
American and Caribbean
Games was taking place in
Cartagena, Colombia, sprinter
Debbie Ferguson-McKenzie
and quarter-miler Christie
Amertil were competing in
Europe.
The duo participated in the
40th DN Galan on Tuesday
at the Stockholm Stadium in
two separate races in the
women's 200 mnetres, which
took the spotlight in the
absence of both the 100 and
400.
The meet was an historic
one as it marked the 50th
anniversary celebrations of the
Equestrian segment of the
1956 Olympic Games that was
staged at the stadium.

Stockholm
The Olympic Games were
held in Melbourne, in 1956,
but the Australian quarantine
regulations prevented the
staging of equestrian compe-
tition, so it was moved to
Stockholm.
It was the first and only time
that the Olympic Games have
been held in two different
countries at the same time.
In Stockholm, it was an
Olympic-type atmosphere as
the DN Galan meet got
underway.
Competing in the A race,
Ferguson-McKenzie clocked
22.59 seconds for third place
behind American Sanya
Richards, who was second in
22.35.


Jamaican Sherone Simpsjop,.
who is having a sensation
year with the world leading
time in the 100, won 'tihej
race in a stadium record of-
22.00.
Simpson joined compatriot
Asafa Powell and Americair
Jeremy Wariner, who brof�se
stadium records in times.-of
9.86 in the 100 and 44.02.-ir
the 400 respectively.
They all were awarded a 1-
caret diamond worth $10,00;
for their efforts.

Race

Amertil, competing in the
B race, was third in a time of
23.13. That race was won by
Jamaican Shericka Williams,
in 22.61, the fourth fastest t6e.'
overall. Russian Anasta ,af'
Kapachinskaya was second iti
23.09.
On Friday in London at the
Norwich Union London
Grand Prix, Ferguson-McKen-
zie will be back-in actionrWas
she competes in the 100.
It's another loaded field as
Simpson, Americans Marion
Jones, Torri Edwards, Lauryn
Williams and Allyson
Felix are all expected to com-
pete.
And for the first time this
year, Olympic and World
champion Tonique Williams.
Darling is scheduled to comr
pete against Richards in-the
400.
Amertil, however, is not list=
ed on the entry form.
Jackie Edwards is also listed
to compete in the meet inthe
women's long jump, along
with Jamaican triple jump sent-
sation Trecia Smith and Elva
Goulbourne.

Opening lead - jack of hearts.
Most mistakes at the bridge table
are of a relatively simple sort. This is
not surprising when you consider
that the number of easy deals that
arise in the ordinary course of events
far exceeds the number of difficult
ones.
Take this case, for example.
Superficially, there seems to be no
good reason for South to go wrong.
But even "thoroughly ' e..er e d

.,but L -'r1p.'n~ i puOijit U -i %\'l .cd 'A


leads the jack of hearts against three
notrump. Declarer covers with the.
queen, hoping West has the king, but
East produces the monarch. South
ducks the king and also the heart
continuation, and is forced to win the
next heart with the ace.
Since it is impossible to win nine
tricks .without utilizing his spades,
declarer crosses to dummy with a
club to take a spade finesse. That
brings declarer to the critical point of
the deal, though he might,not realize
this until it's too late. If he leads the
jack of spades to take the'finesse, he
goes down against best defense, even
though the finesse wins. East and
South follow low, and the jack holds
the trick.
When declarer repeats the
finesse, he is forced to win in his own
.hand and can no longer capture
East's king. South can cash eight
tricks, but eventually finishes down
one.
Declarer's error came when he
led the jack of spades from dummy
first rather than the nine. The nine
lead permits three spade finesses
through East, while the jack lead per-
mits only two. This seemingly
insignificant choice makes all the
difference between making the qor-
ntact and going down.

White mates in tnree moves at

checkmate, in an over-the-board
game White would be tempted
to start peace negotiations. The
exchange 1 Qxh5 gxh5 looks like
a drawn ending, while
otherwise both White's f3 and
h3 pawns are in danger. But it's
actually a white mate in three,
so how? In composed problems
you can usually eliminate
answers starting with a check
(too plebeian), so forget about 1
Qd4+ or 1 Qe5+. King or pawn
moves are also non-starters
because Black simply captures
the white queen. So by
elimination the solution should
begin with a non-checking move
by the white queen. Find it, and

RBPF seeking donations from the




Family Islands for DNA database


* By KARAN MINNIS
Tribune Staff Reporter
AS part of a continuing
effort to establish a Bahamian
DNA database, the Royal
Bahamas Police Force is plan-
ning to travel to several Fami-
ly Islands within the next few
weeks to continue collecting
samples, according to Associ-
ated Press.
In May, officers conducted a
DNA collection exercise in New
Providence, in which samples
were taken from members of
the, public who volunteered to
take part in the initiative.
The police are hoping to
gather around 500 samples
from the Bahamian population
to start the database according
to Chief Superintendent Quinn
Mc'Cartney, director of the
Police Forensic Science Sec-
tion.
Mr McCartney said he hopes


this exercise will eventually
mean that local law enforce-
ment officials will no longer
have to rely on forensic labs in
Florida.
According to police, the
DNA samples will be used to
assist in investigations, particu-
larly those in which bodily fluids
may have been shed - such as
homicides or sexual offenses.
"The database," Mr McCart-
ney said, "will be used as a ref-
erence and not a crime-solving
tool. The objective of the data-
base will be to see how many
persons in a certain area have
the same DNA make up. This
will not be used as a main crime
tool."
"That is why the collection
process is to be completely con-
fidential, meaning that no name
or other information will be tak-
en and the samples will be
destroyed after examination."
Grand Bahama, Eleuthera


and Long Island have been
identified as the next three
places where samples will be
collected, he said.
"We are hoping to go to
Grand Bahama sometime in
early August, Eleuthera in Sep-
tember and to Long Island in
October.
"By going to these islands,
we feel that we should be able
to get the variety of persons
who make up the Bahamian
population in our database, as
we are trying to get as many
samples as possible."
Mr McCartney explained that
his department has yet to
analyse the samples already col-
lected, as those specimens are
being stored until the datebase
if fully compiled.
Expecting to begin the analy-
sis process by mid-2007, Mr
McCartney said the database
should be completed before
2008.

Trinidad's oil refinery shuts down after walkout over wage dispute


* TRINIDAD
Port-of-Spain
PRODUCTION has stopped at
Trinidad's only oil refinery after 200
workers walked off the job to demand
higher wages, a company spokesman
said Tuesday, according to Associated
Press.


The walkout began late Sunday
at Petrotrin's Pointe-a-Pierre
refinery on Trinidad's west coast,
said Arnold Corneal, a spokesman
for the state-o%%ned oil company.
The refinery produces over
160,000 barrels of refined gasoline,
diesel. and oil a day for domestic.
:'use and export to other Caribbean


nations and the United States.
"We are in the process of.trying to
help the country benefit from strong
international petroleum markets and
this self-inflicted damage isn't good for
anybody," said Corneal, who declined
to say how much money Petrotrin was
losing daily due to the walkout.
Labour leaders did not immediate


return calls seeking comment.
The walkout stems from an eight-
month salary dispute between Petrotrin
and the Oilfields Workers Trade
Union, which represents some 5,000
of the company's workers and has
insisted on a 35 per cent wage increase
for employees.
Negotiations broke down over the


weekend after workers rejected an
offer' of a 10 per cent salary increase
over three years, and a lump payment
equal to 2 per cent of salaries, Corneal
said.
Trinidad and Tobago, an oil and gas-
rich Caribbean country, has experi-
enced 12 years of successive economic
growth due to its petroleum exports.


Venezuelan president in




Russia to sign arms deals


SMoscowW
VENEZUELAN President
Hugo Chavez on Tuesday
arrived in Russia for a three-
day visit that is expected to
include signing several arms
deals that have raised the ire of
the-United States, according to
Associated Press.
Ghavez arrived from neigh-
boring Belarus, where he met
with authoritarian President
Alexander Lukashenko, who
shares his strong anti-US views.
Chavez's first stop in Russia
was the southern city of Vol-
gograd, formerly known as Stal-
ingrad, where he planned to vis-
it a vast World War II monu-
ment and a tractor factory.
Greeted at the airport by top
regional officials and uniformed
Cossacks, Chavez followed Cos-
sack tradition by drinking a shot
of vodka from a cup placed on a
saber.
He heads to Moscow on
Wednesday and meets with
President Vladimir Putin on
Thursday. Chavez is to sign a
series of major Russian weapons
contracts, including a more than
US$1 billion deal for 30 Su-30
fighter jets and 30 helicopters.
Chavez has used surging oil
revenues to modernise
Venezuela's military, signing
multi-billion defence deals with
countries including Russia and
Spain. Venezuela earlier
reached a deal to buy 100,000
Kalashnikov assault rifles and
is hoping to set up factories to
produce the rifles under licence.
During talks with
Lukashenko, the two sides
signed seven agreements on
military-technical co-operation,
economic, energy and other ties
as well as a declaration pledging
a strategic partnership. Bilater-
al trade was just under US$16
million in 2005.
The visit to Belarus appeared

to be largely an opportunity for
Chavez to put forth anti-US
rhetoric. Both Lukashenko and
Chavez claim the United States
is trying to overthrow their gov-
ernments.
"The jaws of imperialism and
hegemony have clenched over
Belarus," Chavez said Tuesday.
"Our countries should keep
their hands on their knives."
Chavez has courted foes
and critics of Washington in
what he calls an effort to cre-
ate a global counterbalance
to US domination. He has
crafted a socialist trade bloc
with Cuba and Bolivia, signed
a series of deals with Iran,
and supported North Kore-


a's right to test-fire missiles.
Belarusian Foreign Minister
Sergei Martynov said the sides
agreed on "mutual support on
.all key questions in internation-
al organizations," suggesting
Belarus would back Chavez's
effort to secure a non-perma-
nent UN Security Council seat.
The US government is lobby-
ing to block Venezuela's bid for
a seat, backing Guatemala
instead. The General Assembly
will decide the issue in a secret
ballot in October.
Belarus and Venezuela
agreed to create joint ventures
for the extraction and sale of
Venezuelan oil and gas, Belaru-
sian Security Council chief Vik-


tor Sheiman said. A Belarusian
administration official, who
demanded anonymity because
he was not authorised to speak
about the issue for attribution,
said the agreement means
Belarus will be involved in the
extraction and sale of oil and
gas to the United States.
Prime Minister Sergei
Sidorsky said that Belarus will
increase deliveries of fertilizer
to Venezuela tenfold and plans
to build truck, tractor and
heavy machinery factories in
Venezuela.
Chavez also was slated to vis-
it Qatar and Mali. He has aban-
doned plans to travel to North
Korea.

Fiorentina

allowed

back in top

division

* SOCCER
ROME
Associated Press
FIORENTINA and
Lazio were allowed back
in Italy's top soccer divi-
sion, while Juventus had
its points penalty in
Serie B cut nearly in half
Tuesday after successful
appeals in the country's
match-fixing scandal.
.AC Milan also had its
points penalty in Serie A
cut from 15 to'eight.
Juventus went from 30 to
17. Fiorentina will have
19 points docked next
season, while Lazio will
be deducted 11.
The sports court also
upheld the earlier July
14 ruling stripping
Juventus of its last two
Serie A titles. But Milan
will be allowed to play in
the Champions League
preliminary rounds this
season.
Five-year bans for for-
mer Juventus executives
Luciano Moggi and
Antonio Giraudo - the
figures at the center of
the scandal - were
upheld.
Hundreds of Lazio
fans outside the hotel
where the verdicts were
delivered screamed in
delight at the news their
team was back in Serie
A. Minutes later, they
scattered when a sudden
thunderstorm drenched
them.
In the earlier ruling,
Fiorentina was sent
down to Serie B and giv-
en a 12-point penalty to
start next season, while
Lazio was originallytsup-
posed to start the new
season in Serie B with a
seven point penalty.
All the clubs appealed,
seeking lighter penalties.
Juventus claimed the
sanctions were excessive.
AC Milan argued that its
Champions League ban
was unlawful.
AC Milan owner, bil-
lionaire businessman and
former premier Silvio
Berlusconi, was still
complaining even though
the point penalty was
softened.
"I called Berlusconi to
have confirmation we
were in the Champions
League and he told me
that in his judgment
injustice remains because
Milan didn't do any-
thing," Roberto Maroni,
a former minister and
political ally of Berlus-
coni, told ANSA news
agency.
Soccer federation pros-
ecutor Stefano Palazzi
argued for even tougher
punishment. Palazzi
called for Juventus to be
demoted to Serie C;
Milan, Fiorentina and
Lazio demoted to Serie
B with three-point
deductions for Milan and
15 each for Lazio and
Fiorentina.
With the verdicts still
being deliberated, UEFA
. said Tuesday it granted
Sthe Italian federation a
one-day extension, to
Wednesday, for submis-
sion of the Italian clubs
eligible to participate
in European club compe-
titions this coming sea-
son.
The list of names is
required by UEFA to
complete the prepara-
tions and seeding for the
draws of the Champions
League third qualifying
round and UEFA Cup
second qualifying round.
The draws take place
Friday at UEFA head-
quarters in Nyon,
Switzerland.
Several Serie A soccer


stars - including Italy
and Fiorentina striker
Luca Toni and Brazil and
Milan playmaker Kaka
- are expected to make
decisions about their
club futures based on the
outcome of the trial.
Separately, prosecu-
tors in Rome, Naples,
Parma and Turin are
conducting criminal
probes into alleged
sports fraud, illegal bet-
ting and false bookkeep-
ing.

By RENALDO

WITH another win in the
2006 Esso Summer Classic,
Jason Rolle ensured this
tournament was twice as suc-
cessful as any he has played
in all year.
Along with a championship


in the Boys' 18 and under
division which he captured
on Monday afternoon, Rolle
added his second title in the
final of the Boys' 16 and
under with a (6-3, 7-5) win
yesterday at the National
Tennis Center.
For the second time in the
tournament, Rolle squared
off against William Fountain
in a final round.


With both players fresh off
a hard fought three set match
in the 16 and under final, (7-
5, 6-7, 6-4), they were set to
repeat a similar performance
in yesterday's final.
Rolle asserted his style of
play early in the match, keep-
ing Fountain on the move
and constantly landing fore-
hand winners along the base-
line.


He controlled early in the
match, taking a 3-0 lead ear-
ly in the first set.

Fountain showed flashes of
brilliance at various points
throughout the match, but
was less consistent in many
aspects of his game.

Defending champ




ousted in Croatia


* TENNIS
UMAG, Croatia
Associated Press
ROBIN VIK beat defending champion
Guillermo Coria in the first round Tues-
day and David Ferrer withdrew, com-
pleting the elimination of the top three
seeds in the first two days of the Croatia
Open.
Vik easily dispatched third-seeded
Coria 6-2, 6-3, while No. 1 Ferrer pulled
out citing exhaustion after prevailing in a
five-hour final on Sunday in Stuttgart,
Germany. Their eliminations followed
Albert Portas' three-set victory over No.
2 seed and fellow Spaniard Juan Carlos
Ferrero on Monday.
Coria was on serve at 2-2 before drop-
ping four straight games and the first set.
He broke Vik to open the second set,
but immediately gave away the advan-
tage in the next game and was eliminated.
"It was ne of the worst matches in my


entire career," Coria said, adding that
the shoulder surgery he underwent forced
him to change his grip. "Unfortunately, I
cannot go back to my old grip."

Competing

Coria played the last two weeks in Bas-
tad and Amsersfoort after not competing
since mid-May, reaching last Saturday's
semifinals in the Netherlands.
The eliminations left No. 4 Novak
Djokovic as the highest remaining seed.
The 19-year-old Serb easily defeated
Luka Belic, a Croatian wild-card mak-
ing his ATP tour debut, 6-3, 6-3.
Djokovic beat Nicolas Massu on Sun-
day to win the Amsersfoort title for his
first ATP tournament victory and has
risen to 28th in the rankings. He reached
the quarterfinals at the French Open and
the round of 16 at Wimbledon.
Fifth-seeded Carlos Moya of Spain


joined Djokovic in the second round, but
No. 6 Alberto Martin was eliminated.
Moya needed 2 1/2 hours to beat Czech
Jiri Novak 6-4, 6-7 (6), 7-6 (3), while Mar-
tin was ousted by Swiss Stanislas Wawrin-
ka 7-6 (3), 6-4.
Also advancing to the second round
was Carlos Berlocq of Argentina, who
defeated Stefano Galvani of Italy - a

tells England

* CRICKET
SYDNEY, Australia
Associated Press
AUSTRALIAN cricket
captain Ricky Ponting wants
a showdown with the same
England team that won the
Ashes last year when the two
squads meet again in Novem-
ber.'
In an interview Tuesday,
Ponting said Australia was
preparing for the five-test
series in expectation that
Ep.gland would field its
strongest team. He placed lit-
tie .emphasis on reports of
injuries to key players
Michael Vaughan, Andrew
Ftiutoff and Simon Jones.
,You've got to remember
that .these guys have been
ruled out a long time ago ...
and there's still four months
to go," Ponting told the Aus-
tralian Associated Press.
S"It's a long time to get over
any-sort of injury. I'm pretty
sure they'll want all those
three guys out here if they
can get them here, so that's
the way I'm looking at it."
Pointing said he was looking
forward to a rematch to
avenige the Ashes defeat in
England last year.
"I'd love to play exactly the
same team again, if that was
possible. Our team will be
fairly similar as well I think,
just looking at the way things
are going at the moment.
"We feel that we've got
things really going in the right
direction at the moment. If
you look at what they've been
doing you'd probably say
they'd be the opposite,"
Ponting said.
But he urged Australia's
players not to let their eager-
ness for revenge to prevent
them from playing to their
full potential.
"We did that last time," he
said. "We won't do that
again. We all wanted it so
much. -When we got put
under pressure in a couple of
test matches (in 2005) ... I
think that actually got in the
way. That's something we
have to be really conscious
about."
Ponting said he will make
that message plain when the
team meets in late August.
"We'll all get together and
we'll talk ... and make sure
that we're not treating it any
differently or any more seri-
ous than any other series
we've played in," he said.
"The more sometimes you
build things up the harder it
can be to perform."

JERMAINE 'Choo-Choo' Mackey can't
wait for Friday night for his title shot.
Mackey, the Bahamas welterweight cham-
pion, will take on Marcus 'Marvelous'
Thomas as the Barbadian comes to town to
defend his World Boxing Council's Caribbean
Boxing Federation title at the Radisson Cable
Beach Resort.
"I'm in top shape and I can't wait for this
fight. I'm ready to go," said an excited Mack-
ey as he continues his training at the Nation-
al Boxing Gym under the supervision of coach
Ray Minus Jr.
'Both fighters will be going into the main
event sporting undefeated records. Mackey is
10-0, while Thomas is 7-0. But Mackey said it
won't matter when they step into the ring.
"It's going to be a good fight," Mackey
projected. "We are both undefeated, but only
one man can win the fight and that is going to
be me."
Unlike his preparation for all of his other
fights, Mackey said he understands the impor-
tance of being properly prepared for the inter-
national challenge on the First Class Promo-
tions' card.
"I'm training dead hard. I'm doing the same
things that I have been doing, but I have been
working a little more on my jab, making sure
that it's sharp," Mackey stated.

Opportunity
He will be following in the footsteps of
Meacher 'Pain' Major, who clinched the
WBC's FEDECaribe lightweight title..But
Mackey said this is his opportunity to shine
and he intends to prove to the Bahamian
public that "hard work" does pay off.
Although it's an international title fight,
Mackey said he doesn't believe that it will
be bigger than the showdown that he had
with 'Marvelous' Marvin Smith when he
secured the Bahamian title from'the.champi-
on.
"I'm just going to out-box and win the
fight," Mackey warned the general public.
"I'm not going for a knockout, but if it comes,
I will take it."
Mackey said although Thomas has been
around, having fought in more than 100 ama-

SATOUGH CALL
j 'K^lp A yy^ B^~ ff


AFTER 40 years, there
are signs that the
Montagu shoreline could be in
for some big improvements. But
don't bet on it - the area has a
long history of missed opportu-
nities.
A parliamentary committee
reported last week after a two-
year study. And consultants
working on the redevelopment
of Nassau have also published
their two-year-old recommen-
dations for the Montagu area.
The two proposals conflict
with each other. Critics say
some are "hopelessly impracti-
cal" and "unrealistic" anyway.
And there is no allocation in
the current budget to imple-
ment any of the suggested
changes.
Once a fashionable resort, the
Montagu today is a crowded
recreational site for joggers,
inner-city families, cookout ven-
dors, sailing enthusiasts and
boaters. But years of neglect
and lack of planning have led
to huge environmental manage-
Sment problems.
The beach has all but disap-
peared due to man-made ero-
sion. The complex intersection
is a monstrous safety hazard,
And there is a growing public
health threat from pollution
caused by garbage, fish waste,
sewerage and storm water dis-
charges.
Despite minor improvements
by private sector groups, the
narrow park along the shore is
strewn with trash. The crum-
bling ramp is jammed with fish-
ernfen, small boats and jet ski
operators. And daily traffic jams
rile the tempers of thousands
of motorists.

Tlhe venerable Montagu
Beach Hotel closed in
1973 and was demolished in
1993. The land remained
vacant for years, and could eas-
ily have been acquired by the
government for a public park
- but that never happened. So
today, high-rise office blocks
hem the joggers and picknick-
ers into a narrow strip along
the shore.
In the early 1990's architect
Jackson Burnside proposed
diverting Bay Street to expand
the park and remove the sea
wall and road that had
destroyed the beach dunes.
"The Ministry of Works drew
up some schemes that never
went anywhere," Burnside told
Tough Call. "No engineering
studies were ever done to my


knowledge."
The 1960s-vintage ramp was
never meant to accommodate
commercial traffic or a public
market. But after an outbreak
of food poisoning at Potter's
Cay in 1991, many fish vendors
moved to Montagu - and nev-
er looked back.
According to the House
select committee's report,



Moving the
ramp to the
area between
the fort and
the Nassau
Yacht Club
was vetoed
because of the
traffic dangers
it would create
for children
playing in the
park.



although the market was
declared illegal in 1995, the con-
gested ramp is now a source of
livelihood for at least 30 fami-
lies. And as a result it poses
health, traffic, property value
and other growth-related prob-
lems.
"Boats are launched there;
fish are cleaned and sold
there; tee shirts are sold there;
and fruit stalls have sprung up.
The commercial area has
expanded and in a few years
the eastern foreshore will be
illegally commercial," the
report said, pointing to the
lack of toilet and waste dis-
posal facilities in a popular
recreational area.

'T o address the prob-
lems, the government
would have to install consider-
able new infrastructure. But the
committee concluded that the
area was too small to justify
such an investment.
Moving the ramp to the area
between the fort and,the Nassau
Yacht Club was vetoed because
of the traffic dangers it would
create for children playing in
the park. Fishermen also object-
ed because of the difficulty of
launching their boats in the
swift current.
The foreshore east of the
Royal Nassau Sailing Club was
also considered: "Traditional-
ly, this has been zoned as a res-
idential area," the committee
said. "On the other side of the
street is high-priced real estate
(and) putting a commercial ven-.
ture there would unnecessarily
devalue the real estate. It is not
good policy for a government


to do this."
So the parliamentarians
decided that the best solution
was for the vendors to be relo-
cated to four acres of vacant
government land between the
Paradise Island entry bridge and
the old Pan Am seaplane ter-
minal. Many private investors
have sought to lease this prop-
erty but for years it has been
nothing more than an unsightly
boat boneyard in full view of
arriving Atlantis guests.
"This area is centrally located
and able to accommodate both
the Potter's Cay fishermen and
those from the Montagu ramp.
It is well off the road and has
the potential to attract tourist
from Paradise Island," the com-
mittee said.

However, to avoid the
traffic problems
caused by boat trailers travel-
ling to this site from the eastern
district, the committee con-
cluded that the ramp should
remain where it is, but be
closed off from the sale of fish
and other products. Access
would be reconfigured to pre-
vent trailers from blocking the
main road.
This plan is made simpler by
the sea wall now under con-
struction that has reclaimed
extra space between the ramp
and the old hotel dock. This
refurbished area would become
a parking and turning area for
vehicles and trailers. And the
ramp will be extended outward
another 100 feet.
As for the relocated fish mar-

and traffic
improvements

tagu district,
including a
reconfigura-
tion of the
park sur-
rounding the
fort.



ket, this is similar to what Jack-
son Burnside proposed in his
1993 waterfront study that the
government never acted on.
Burnside said the Malcolm's
Park site should be turned into
a "festival marketplace" for fish,
vegetable, arts and craft ven-
dors similar to the one he
designed for the Prince George
Wharf.

But the government's US-
based urban planners, EDAW,
in their Historic Nassau study
called for a park, community
centre and botanical gardens at
the Malcolm's Park site. All
market activities would be
moved to Potter's Cay, which
would be transformed into an
attraction similar to the
Arawak Cay Fish Fry. How this
could be implemented in com-
petition with the already con-
gested freight, fishing and ferry
boat operations was not
explained.

T he EDAW study called
for a variety of land-
scape and traffic improvements
to the Montagu district, includ-
ing a reconfiguration of the park
surrounding the fort. Beaches
to the west and south of the fort
would be restored, and a water-
front promenade would connect
the fort to a new restaurant by
the hotel dock.
EDAW, however, wanted to
keep the fish market in the area
between the ramp and the old
hotel dock, with reorganized
parking and better access: "The
restaurant is moved to a water-
front area closer to the fish-ven-
dors, and new food vending
areas are created. Picnic areas
are added adjacent to the beach.
Space for temporary regatta
stalls are also provided.
"About 10,000 square feet
of retail is proposed, including
the reconstruction of the exist-
ing fish vendor booths. The
project also redesigns about
5.5 acres of park lands and
about 1.3 acres of parking. The
result of these small projects
is a unified and expanded park
with a greater variety of attrac-
tions."
This dichotomy between the
select committee's recommen-
dations and the Historic Nas-
sau study is one of the reasons
Montagu MP Brent Symonette
refused to sign the House
report. Instead, Symonette
gave a "verbal minority
report", arguing for facilities
to accommodate fish vendors
at the existing site - but off
the ramp.
"If improvements were made
at the Johnson Road, Fox Hill
Road and Blair intersections
with Bay Street a lot of the traf-
fic problems now blamed on the
ramp could be resolved," he
told Tough Call. "I did not
agree to moving the fish ven-
dors, and the EDAW study has
allocated Malcolm's Park for a
different use."

A although Pierre
Dupuch, the inde-
pendent MP who chaired the
House committee, said he will
meet with government officials
soon to discuss next steps,
Symonette says it is unlikely
that anything will happen in the
short-term.
So here we are, 33 years after
the Montagu Beach Hotel
closed, 13 years after Bahamian
experts outlined a comprehen-
sive waterfront plan, two years
after foreign consultants made
similar proposals, and one week
after the House committee
report.
Will anything actually hap-
pen?
What do you think?

A DATE has been set for
the final ruling in the extradi-
tion hearing of Czech-born
investor Viktor Kozeny, it was
revealed in court yesterday.
Magistrate Carolita Bethel
said that she expects to have
made a decision in the matter
by September 18.
Mr K~ozeny and lawyers
leading his defence against the
request for his extradition to
the United States were back
in court yesterday to submit


their closing arguments; .
Kozeny's lawyers, in what
was supposedly their final
defence, were asked to maaake
silbmissions in re'gards to the
Inter-American Convention
, against Corruption and its
retroactivity.
Last month, Kozeny had
charges of money-laundering
outlined in an authority to pro-

not satisfied th~at those partic-

had indicted him constituted

FORTY per cent of juvenile
offenders are "challenged by
reading," according to director
of Rehabilitative Welfare Ser-
vices Sharon Farquharsol.
Mrs Farquabson told The Tri-
.bune yesterday that while the
number can fluctuate, there are
Roughly 35 girls currently at the
Williemae Pratt School For
Girls and 50 boys at the Simp-
son Pen Centre for Boys.
She said the department is
~starting to see a higher number
.of delinquents between the ages
of 10 and 12, compared to pre-
vious years.
"We have much more juve-
niles coming in right now,
because, you see, the main thing
with the juvenile court is to try
to keep them out of the system


as much as possible," Ms Far-
quharson explained. "So rather
than giving them a sentence, we
try to do things with them with-
in the community. But when all
else fails we send them to the
industrial schools."
As with any charge, sentences
for juveniles depend on the
offence comnutted.
Earlier this year, officials
announced that adolescent
males accounted f or more than
half of the home invasions
reported in the southeastern
communities of New Provi-
dence.
Chief Superintendent' of
Police James Carey said that of
the 31 persons arrested for
breaking and entering during
the first' quarter of the year in


sometime those age 10 are also
incarcerated, (at the industrial
schools) based on the serious-
ness of the offence. Otherwise
we try to keep those 10 and 11
year olds in the community ser-
vices."
She explained that boys are
placed in a programme known
as BOSS ( Boys of Strength
Survivingg.


"We would put all of them
into that group in an attempt
to shape their character and
discourage them from whatev-
er behaviour that is stunting
their development through a
series of sessions with the a
psychologist and have them
interact and share information
with each other," she

THE Bahamas has sought
the advice of a specialist on
the way forward mn protecting
intellectual property including
all forms of local cultural
expression. ,
Over the past two days
Sonia Cruickshank, consultant.
for World Intellectual Proper-
ty Orgamisation (WIPO), met
with the attorney general, reg-
istrar general, commissioner
of police, Copyright Commis-
sion and the representatives
of the Ministry of Culture to
discuss the securing of intel-
lectual property in the
Bahamas. -
At a press conference yes-
terday announcing the co-
operation between the
Bahamas government and
the WIPO, Attbirney. Gener-
al Allyson Maynard-Gibson
said the issue of informing
the public about the impoi-
tance of protecting intellec-
tual property was also dis-
cussed.
This, she said, includes
explaining how digital piracy


"significantly erodes the sys-
tem of governance upon which
we are based and how it
impacts people's investment
in themselves."
The government has
received advice on the updat-
ing of intellectual property
laws and the protection of tra-
ditional knowledge' and folk-
lore such as junkanoo.
"(There are persons around
the world who are already
holding themselves out as
experts in junkanoo; these are
not Bahamians. Our intellec-
tual property in the country
has already been impacted,"
Mrs Maynard-Gibson said.
"We want to move exp'edi-
tiously working with WIPO
and the Ministry of Culture to
protect what remains that
includes methods of building
costumes, the way instruments
are made, and all the many
properties involved in
junkanoo."
Arlene Nash-Ferguson,
speaking on behalf of the
Junkanoo Corporation, said
that entertainers welcome the
attempt to protect the arts and
sciences of junkanoo.

Cuban exiles

a MIAMI

A COALITION of Cuban
Erriler groups launched a cam-
paiign Tuesday urging Cubans
on the island not to participate
in attacks on those who speak
out against the Cuban govern-
ment, according to Associated
Press.
The groups said the campaign
comes in response to requests
by political prisoners and
activists in Cuba, as well as evi-
dence that'growing numbers of
Cubans are already refusing to
join so-called acts of repudia-
tion against their fellow citizens.
"Every dictator needs its civ-
11 society to maintain the dicta-
torship," said Angel De Fana,
head of a group of former
Cuban political prisoners who
work with dissidents on the
island.
De Fana's group, and the oth-
er coalition members Moth-
ers Against Repression and the
Cuban Democratic Directorate
- said their goal is to let people
in arid outside of Cuba know
about the those inve1ved in civ-
il disobedience there.
The Directorate, which doc-
uments peaceful resistance to
the Cuban government, report-
ed 3,314 verified acts of civil
disobedience in 2005, as com-
pared to 444 in 2000. The Direc-
torate also documented more
than a dozen instances in the
last year when neighbors
refused to participate in the
repudiations.

WITH no system in place
to monitor the activities of
persons released on bail,
police are extremely con-
cerned that a number of those
awaiting trial may be commit-
ting crimes.
Assistant Commissioner of
Police in charge of crime Regi-


in charge of the Central
Detective Unit (CDU) has
also voiced concerns about the
issue.
"'From time to time, there
have been cases where per-
sons released on bail involve
themselves in criminal act
while out on bail. Our job is to
investigate, arrest and then put
them before the court,"' Mr
Ferguson said.
In recent yeai! s, mn yv
Bahamians have questioned
the decision making process
that goes into the gr;anting of
bail.
Attorney General Allysonl
Maynard-Gibson hals been
steadfast in setting up the
Swift Justice system, with the
assurance that criminalss will
be swiftly caught, swiftly tried
and swiftly punished, and that
will contribute to breaking the
back of crime and the fear of
enime "
During a speech to parlia-



are among the principal issues
concerning Bahamians in
2006.


naild Ferguson told The Tri-
bune yesterday that that cre-
ation of a house-arrest system
has been suggested to track
persons granted bail.
An ankle bracelet is nor-
mally used when persons are
placed under house arrest, to


ensure that they remain with-
in a certain radius of their
home.
If they leave this area, law
enforcement officers will be
alerted, he explained.
Mr Ferguson pointed out
that such an elaborate system


would require an expansion
of bureaucracy, funding and
man power.
"Those ideas were looked
into in terms of trying to mon-
itor persons, but nothing like
that has been implemented,"
he said. "But other than that,
when a person is arraigned
before the court, depending
on the circumstances, the
criminal history is looked at -
and outside of that, there is
no specified mechanism in
place to govern persons on
bail."
In 2004, seven per cent of
234 persons arrested were
released on bail

THE invest ation into the
death a woman killed in a
suspicious fire last week is
going extremely .well, law
enforcement officials say.
However, investigators
have yet to draw any firm
conclusions.
According to Chief Super-
intendent Marvin Dames,
investigators are following
many lines of inquiry and are
looking at all possibilities in
their effort to determine
what caused the fire in a
Faith Avenue condominium
that killed 35-year-old Nico-
la Gibson.
Mr Dames was unable to
comment on whether or not
flammable liquids were
found at the scene of the fire,
but he did mention that the
forensic analysis of the


charred crime scene is not
yet complete.
"When there is a belief
that something was the cause
of a fire, there is a process
that we have to go through m
order to determine if that
was in fact the case," Mr
Dames said. "I don't want to
pre-empt the process."
"We are trying to answer
the questions of what exactly
happened, how it happened
and why it happened," he
continued. "What we have
right now is a fire and a per-
son who died as a result of
the fire. It will be classified as
suspicious until we find the
reason for the fire and the
resulting death.
"The investigation cannot
be based on assumptions -
we have to rely on facts," Mr
Dames said.
The fire took place early


Friday morning in a condo-
minium complex on Faith
Avenue north, just south of
Fire Trail Road.
Fire officers arrived on the
scene shortly after the fire
was reported, to find that the
blaze had been put out with
the help of two neighbours.
Ms Gibson was found in
the northern bedroom of the
two-bedroom apartment on
the second floor.
Her 14-year-old son was
treated for smoke inhalation
at the Princiss Margaret
Hospital and released.
Ms Gibson was an employ-
ee at the Wyndham Nassau
Resort.

THE TRIBUNE


EDITOR, The Tribune.
THIS past Independence
Day was not very different
from those of the past. With
the re gular festivities, the
Bahamian community took
time out to acknowledge and
recognize the contributions of
those unsung heroes who had
sacrificed to give us what we
have today. As someone who
has often criticised the Bahami-
an society for being ungrateful
as in most cases, some of the
greatest Bahamian patriots
have gone to the great beyond
without any acknowledgment
or reward for their unselfish
labour to make a better life for
the rest of us in the Bahamas.
Many of then have died as pau-
pers and those who directly
benefited ignored their cries in
their time of need. I am indeed
impressed with the fact that in
some Bahamian communities,
for example, some effort has
been made to recognize these
icons by the establishment of a
"Wall of Famel" The names of
these persons and their contri-
butions will be posted in a
prominent place for all to see.
This is what is ~what is being
done on Grand Bahama. It is
not enough just to acknowledge
them, but their life's story must
be told as well.
Heroes come from all walks
of life and professions. It knows
no age, gender or level of edu-
cation. Some of our heroes had
to leave school at an early age
due to circumstances beyond
their control. The only common
characteristic that heroes seem
to share is a burning desire to
assist their fellow man and
country in a most unselfish way.
There is no thought of a reward
or acknowledgment of their
contributions. At the end of the
day it is their acts of commit-
ment that has made it better
f or all of those whose lives they
~have touched. This-umique and
distinguished group of persons
have included teachers, preach-
ers, postal workers, lighthouse
keepers, taxi drivers, and even
garbage collectors. The bottom
line is the fact that in their own
way, they helped to mould the
character of the nation
There is no measure as to the
limit of the effect of such con-
tributions. For example, my
grandmother, Mrs Vera
Symonette Hanna, who walked
twenty miles round trip daily
to ensure that the children of
Acklins received a good edu-
cation. One of her students at
Mason Bay's All Age School
just happened to be Ivy Rolle,
the mother of Sir Lynden Pin-
dling who is credited with the
distinction as being "the Father
of the Nation". Clearly, the dis-
cipline and values installed in
Lynden Pindling by his mother
could I believe in part be traced
back to the influence of Mrs
Vera Hanna.


port after the major renova-
Stions and upgrading had taken
place.
Another impressive recogni-
tion over the Independence cel-
ebrations was the tribute paid
to my 'good friend, Harcourt
"Rusty" Bethel. Immortalising
his name by renaming 3rd Ter-
race in Centreville, the home
of Radio Bahamas, was most
fitting and appropriate. Rusty
was a common man with a
common touch and with lots of
common sense. He possessed a
rare ability to recall historical
events in detail. Just by listen-
ing to him was a history lesson.
He often kidded me about a
song that my father, the late
Humphrey Percentie Sr, wrote
about the sinking of the "Zelma
Rose", a mailboat that sank in
Six Schilling Channel while on
the way to Spanish Wells. This
maritime disaster resulted in a
number of deaths and with the
heroic action of Captain Higgs
who swam eleven miles to Cur-
rent Island to get help. Rusty
always reminded me that on
the morning of that dreadful
day at Prince George's Dock,
he warned Captain Higgs that
too much freight was on one
side of the boat.
Rusty's greatest achievement
was the establishment of Zenith
Nassau Station (ZNS), the life-
line for the people in the Out
Islands. This venture almost
cost him his life on one occa-
sion but his commitment to the
job never faltered. Through cri-
sis such as hurricanes or other
emergencies, Rusty's voice was
a comfort for reliable informa-
tion and advice. This commu-
nication institution is now a
giant today, but it is hard to
believe that Rusty almost single
handedly is responsible for its
development. Most of the most
prominent journalists and
broadcasters in the Bahamas
Today owe him a debt ofgrati-
tude as in one way or ,the other,
he had positively impacted their
development in the broadcast-
ing world.
Finally, once again it is a
pleasure to congratulate my
mother, "Ma" Ruby Percentie
of Tingum Village, Harbour
Island. Last Saturday evening
at Sandals Resort here in Nas-
sau, at the 5th Annual Confer-
ence and Banquet of Honour,
"Ma" Ruby aloilg with other
outstanding Bahamians such as
Lady Pindling, DPM Cynthia
"Mother": Pratt, J Barrie Far-
rington, Arlene Nash Ferguson,
etc, were recognized for their
outstanding contributions to the
nation. "You go girl!"


DR LEATENDORE

Boston,
Massachusetts,
July 20, 2006.


Another individual family
member who deserves much
praise is my brother, Humphrey
Percentie Jr, alias "Hitler". For
almost two decades now, he has
made it his mission in life to
take care of one of the
Bahamas' best treasures.
Almost on a daily basis he has
walked almost the entire length
of Harbour Island's world
famous Pink Sand beach pick-
ing up trash that had either
washed ashore or been left
there by nasty and filthy per-
sons. Being designated as one
of the best beaches in the
world, persons travel from far
and wide to experience this
wonderful spectacle of nature.
Indeed, "Brilanders" have been
truly blessed by the good Lord
with such an asset, the least
they can do is to take care of it.
This is the message that
"Hitler" presents on the Min-
istry of Tourism TV advertise-
ment "Proud to be a Bahami-
an".
Oftentimes, Hitler is on the
Pink Sands beach all alone exe-
cuting his labour of love for the
beach. When additional help is
needed, Hitler pays them out
of his own pocket for raking,
bagging, trucking and dispos-
ing of the trash. Occasionally
he has received some financial
assistance from concerned citi-
zens and winter residents. Also,
at one point he was receiving
a little stipend from Local Gov-
ernment, but in recent times
that has been revoked due to
their budget crunch. Yet,
despite such setbacks, Hitler
has never faltered from his ded-
ication to the beach cleanup.
His only disappointment has
been the fact that locals and
visitors alike have to relieve
themselves either in the bushes
or on our precious Pink Sand
Beach as there are no public
bathrooms on such a famous
tourist attraction.
I must say that it was impres-
sive on how the government
has attempted to honour the
father of the nation, Sir Lyn-
den Pindling by renaming Nas-
sau International Airport
(NIA) in his name. Despite this
gesture of goodwill, many per-
sons expressed their disap-
proval due to the fact that the
timing was off. NIA is in need
of major repairs. Just two days
after the official ceremonies
dedicating the name of Lynden
Pindling, I saw several areas
where there were buckets
catching water from leaks in
the roof of the airport. Cer-
tainly, someone with the stature
of Lynden Pindling deserves
better. His name should only
have been attached to the air-


Sir Lynden to resign" in 1997.
It is true that on Sir Lynden's file, Mr
Ingraham had left a note stating that Sir
Lynden's pension was not to be paid until
he retired.
If this was unfair why didn't Mr Christie
say so then?
We have no idea why Mr Ingraham left
such a note on the file. We can only guess
that it would have been easier for him to
govern without Sir Lynden's continued
backroom political activities. And so, we
presume, that he would have done anything
at the time to have made retirement for Sir
Lynden very attractive. In the case of Mr
Christie, we do not have to guess why he
didn't protest. He made it clear on the floor
of the House that he encouraged Sir Lynden
to take early retirement because he wanted
the way cleared for the type of leadership
that he himself "would wish to exercise in
the Progressive Liberal Party."
Our guess is that if Sir Lynden could
have received his pension while he was also
opposition leader he would not have retired
when he did.
And if we read the times correctly, this
would not have sat well with either Mr
Irigraham or Mr Christi~e. And so, we pre-
sume, that the agreement to withhold Sir
Lynden's pension until actual retirement
was the bait that was needed to quietly ease
him into the sunset. .
And so if Mr Roberts is correct in his
claim that Mr Ingraham "forced" Sir Lyn-
den out, we would submit that Mr Christie
was also a gentle enforcer.
Under the pension plan, Sir Lynden was
to have security staff, the number to be
decided by the Commissioner of Police. In
fact two officers were assigned to him. He
retained his diplomatic passport and had a
personal assistant from the time he left
office until the time of his death. He also
received $15,000 in cash for incidental
expenses. His pension was $86,000 a year in
addition to his MP's salary of $28,000. His
total cash packet, including his expenses
was $129,000 a year. And his widow, Lady
Pindling, now receives her widow's pension
in addition to an assistant and a govern-
ment car.
It is difficult to understand how any-
one- except to make political mischief -
can say that the Pindlings have been
"unfairly" or shabbily treated.


AS BRADLEY ROBERTS and other
government MPs have made the'prime min- .
ister's pension a political issue in the case of
former prime minister Hubert Ingraham,
we think, as we said in this column yester-
day, that the public should now have a full
explanation of how the $500,000 figure was
arrived at for Lady Pindling when it was
decided to correct an "unlawful, illegiti-
mate decision" against the late Sir Lynden
Pindling.
It would be interesting to know if gov-
ernment had done any "double dipping"
here something of which it has accused
Mr Ingraham.
In 2003 Prime Minister Christie informed
the House that government had decided to
pay Lady Pindling her husband's pension for
the years 1992 to 1997 when he was oppo-
sition leader in the House. As opposition
leader Sir Lynden would have been paid
$50,000 a year.
Mr Christie claimed that the pension was
"unfairly and unlawfully withheld" from Sir
Lynden during the period when he was an
active member of parliament. He received
his full pension on his retirement in 1997
until the time of his death,
Aofdirg~ t6'191r EllWRtle~he pe7i'bione '
was withheld "unfairly and unlawfully"
while Sir Lynden was still in parliament.
Mr Ingraham has always maintained that
nothing was done unlawfully because the
agreement between Sir Lynden, Mr Christie .
and himself was that no pension was to be
paid until Sir Lynden had actually retired.
Mr Ingraham has contended that Sir Lyn-
den and Mr Christie accepted the position
because, although they both had many
opportunities during Sir Lynden's lifetime to
protest if either felt that anything was being
done unlawfully, neither raised the pension
question again. It only became an issue after
his death when Governmerit decided on the
payment to Lady Pindling, in addition to
her widow's pension, which was three quar-
ters of her husband's pension. .
There are those lawyers who claim that if
anything was done "unlawfully" it was the
decision to make this payment, because Sir
Lynden's pension was only to have come
into legal effect on his retirement. This is
another point that should be clarified.
And now to the question of Mr Christie's
allegation of "unfairness" and Mr Roberts'
contention that Mr Ingrahami had "forced

HAITI'S new government

into chaos without immediate
and long-term help, according
to Associated Press.
Money for new roads,
upgrading the electricity grid
and improving telecommunica-
tions topped the agenda of Pres-
ident Rene Preval's govern-
ment, which also is seeking
funds to bolster the police,
improve education and spur
tourism.
The one-day dorior's meet-
ing comes amid surging violence
in the capital that has raised
fears of a return to the mayhem
seen after the February 2004
revolt that ousted former pres-
ident Jean-Bertrand Aristide.
The three-week rebellion
destroyed many state offices,
factories and police stations,
pushing the poorest country in
the Americas deeper into
despair.
Haiti's government is seek-
ing US$544 million to pay for
developnient projects over the
next year, part of US$7 billion
mn aid it says it needs over the
next five years.
It also wants US$131 million
in budget assistance for 2006-
2007, but donors have been
reluctant to agree because it is
harder to track how those funds
are spent, officials said.

"These threats may be a hoax but 'm
not prepared to take that chance," said
president and operations manager of
Executive Transport Experts Stephen
Johnson. "P'd just like to see the perpe-
trators caught. This is a huge hindrance to
our business and its not an easy thing
when you threaten someone's life."
The Customs-run building houses
roughly 100 workers who are employed by
10 to 12 importers that run their opera-

"This is a government building and one

"You can't bring the international cargo

"It's disheartening, we need to get the
perpetrators and make an example out

Mr Johnson said that during Monday's

and had to be iriformed of the evacua-

noticed that they were still there.
He said even some of the Customs staff

Speaking with The Tribune yesterday,
Assistant Commissioner of Police in

explained that during a bomb scare, the
first priority is to evacuate the building.
He said that depending on the nature of
the threat, in some cases the adjacent
buildings should be evacuated next.
According to Mr Ferguson, there are
many reasons for bomb threats.
"Sometimes people just want to get off
froth work, so they call in a threat," he
said. "But you cannot take it for granted


that its a hoax call, you have to go and
investigate."
The police have said they are working
together with the Bahamas Telecommu-

calls and find the culprits.
Charges will reportedly be pressed
against any suspects, its making threat-
ening calls is a criminal offence.

knowledge."
The 1960s-vintage ramp was
never meant to accommodate
commercial traffic or a public
market. But after an outbreak
of food poisoning at Potter's
Cay in 1991, many fish vendors
moved to Montagu and ney-
er looked back.
According to the House
select committee's report,



MOving the

WRaS vto d

because of the

traffic dangers
it WOUld create
for children

playing in the

although the market was
declared illegal in 1995, the con-
gested ramp is now a source of
livelihood for at least 30 fami-
lies. And as a result it poses
health, traffic, property value
and other growth-related prob-
lems,
"Boats are launched there;
fish are cleaned and sold
there; tee shirts are sold there;
and fruit stalls have sprung up.
The commercial area has
expanded and in a few years
the eastern foreshore will be
illegally commercial," the
report said, pointing to the
lack of toilet and waste dis-
posal facilities in a popular
recreational area.

o address the prob-
Tlems, the government
would have to install consider-
able new infrastructure. But the
committee concluded that the
area was too small to justify
such an investment.
Moving the ramp to the area
between the fort and,the Nassau
Yacht Club was vetoed because
of the traffic dangers it would
create for children playing in
the park. Fishermen also object-
ed because of the difficulty of
launching their boats in the
swift current. .
The foreshore east of the
Royal Nassau Sailing Club was
also considered: "Traditional-
ly, this has been zoned as a res-
idential area," the committee
said. "On the other side of the
street is high-priced real estate
(and) putting a commercial ven-.
ture there would unnecessarily
devalue the real estate. It is not
good policy for a government


to do this."
So the parliamentarians
decided that the best solution
was for the vendors to be relo-
cated to four acres of vacant
government land between the
Paradise Island entry bridge and
the old Pan Am seaplane ter-
minal. Many private investors
have sought to lease this prop
erty but for years it has been
nothing more than an unsightly
boat boneyard in full view of
arriving Atlantis guests.
"This area is centrally located
and able to accommodate both
the Potter's Cay fishermen and
those from the Montagu ramp.
It is well off the road and has
the potential to attract tourist
from Paradise Island," the com-
mittee said.

however, to avoid the
Traffic problems
caused by boat trailers travel-
ling to this site from the eastern
district, the committee con-
cluded that the ramp should
remain where it is, but be
closed off from the sale of fish
and other products. Access
would be reconfigured to pre-
vent trailers from blocking the
main road. -
This plan is made simpler by
the sea wall now under con-
struction that has reclaimed
extra space between the ramp
and the old hotel dock. This
refurbished area would become
a parking and turning area for
vehicles and trailers. And the
ramp will be extended outward
another 100 feet.
As for the relocated fish mar-

THE TRIBUNE


But the government's US-
based urban planners, EDAW,
in their Historic Nassau study
called for a park, community
centre and botanical gardens at
the Malcolm's Park site. All
market activities would be
moved to Potter's Cay, which
would be transformed into an
attraction similar to the
Arawak Cay Fish Fry. How this
could be implemented in com-
petition with the already con-
gested freight, fishing and ferry
boat operations was not
explained.

he EDAW study called
for a variety of land-
scape and traffic improvements
to the Montagu district, includ-
ing a reconfiguration of the park
surrounding the fort. Beaches
to the west and south of the fort
would be restored, and a water-
front promenade would connect
the fort to a new restaurant by
the hotel dock.
EDAW, however, wanted to
keep the fish market in the area
between the ramp and the old
hotel dock, with reorganized
parking and better access: "The
restaurant is moved to a water-
front area closer to the fish ven-
dors, and new food vending
areas are created. Picnic areas
are added adjacent to the beach.
Space for temporary regatta
stalls are also provided.
"About 10,000 square feet
of retail is proposed, mecludmng
the reconstruction of the exist-
ing fish vendor booths. The
project also redesigns about
5.5 acres of park lands and
about 1.3 acres of parking. The
result of these small projects
is a unified and expanded park
with a greater variety of attrac-
tions."
This dichotomy between the
select committee's recommen-
dations and the Historic Nas-
sau study is orie of the reasons
Montagu MP Brent Symonette
refused to sign the House
report. Instead, Symonette
gave a "verbal minority
report", arguing for facilities
to accommodate fish vendors
at the existing site but off
the ramp.
"If improvements were made
at the Johnson Road, Fox Hill
Road and Blair intersections
with Bay Street a lot of the traf-
fic problems now blamed on the
ramp could be resolved," he
told Tough Call. "I did not
agree to moving the fish ven-
dors, and the EDAW study has
allocated Makcolm's Park for a
different use."

AIthough Pierre
Dupuch, the inde-
pendent MP who chaired the
House committee, said he will
meet with government officials
soon to discuss next steps,
Symonette says it is unlikely
that anything will happen in the
short-term.
So here we are, 33 years after
the Montagu Beach Hotel
closed, 13 years after Bahamian
experts outlined a comprehen-
sive waterfront plan, two years
after foreign consultants made
similar proposals, and one week
after the House committee
report.
Will anything actually hap-
pen?

FTER 40 years, there
A are signs that the
Montagu shoreline could be in
for some big improvements. But
don't bet on it the area has a
long history of missed opportu-
nities.
A parliamentary committee
reported last week after a two-
year study. And consultants
working on the redevelopment
of Nassau have also published
their two-year-old recommen-
dations for the Montagu area.
The two proposals conflict
with each' other. Critics say
some are "hopelessly impracti-
cal" and "unrealistic" anyway.
And there is no allocation in
the current budget to imple-
a ment any of the suggested
changes.
Once a fashionable resort, the
Montagu today is a crowded
recreational site for joggers,
inner-city families, cookout ven-
dors, sailing enthusiasts and
boaters. But years of neglect
and lack of planning have led
to huge environmental manage-
Sment problems.
The beach has all but disap-
peared due to man-made ero-
sion. The complex intersection
is a monstrous safety hazard,
And tliere is a growing public
health threat from pollution
caused by garbage, fish waste,
sewerage and storm ~water dis-
charges.
Despite minor improvements
by private sector groups, the
narrow park along the shore is
strewn with trash. The crum-
bling ramp is jammed with fish,
ernf'en, small boats and jet ski
operators. And daily traffic jams
rile the tempers of thousands
of motorists.

he venerable Montagu
SBeach Hotel closed in
1973 and was demolished in
1993. The land remained
vacant for years, and could eas-
ily have been acquii-ed by the

Ms Johnson pointed that the

revolutiomise the entire econ-

scale exercise in "'tapping into
local resources" could eventu-
ally bloom into a significant
export industry.
"We have the land and the

Stevanyia Johnson. "That's

CABLE Beach Resorts has
partnered with two leading cor-
porate entities to make it easi-
er for employees to own their
dream home as early as
December 2006.
A wide cross-section of
Cable Beach Resorts staff
turned up in Salon A and B of
the Wyndham Nassau Resort
to learn about the employee
benefits initiative and the new
relationship between Scotia-
bank Limited, Arawak Homes
and Cable Beach Resorts.
Speaking to the staff,
Arawak .Homes chairman
Franklyn Wilson explained that
his company is "very commit-
ted and will move mountains
to get at least 30 of you in
homes by Christmas of this
year, if you commit by the end
of this month of July."
Pointing out that "rent is


dead money," Mr Wilson said
there is much financial wisdom
in home ownership, as renters
do not build equity and there-
fore miss an opportunity to
earn capital gains.
"It is better to act now to
purchase a home," he added,
"because the monthly payment
will be lower for a younger per-
son than it is for an older per-
son."
According to Mr Wilson,
CBR executives were extreme-
ly timely in the launch of the
employee benefits programme,
because interest rates in the
Bahamas are at an all time low,
which translates into borrow-
ers requiring less family income
and having lower monthly pay-
ments.
With the opportunity avail-
able, many employees were
concerned about the costs


involved in home ownership -
which includes in most
instances a 5 per cent down-
payment, plus closing costs.
However, these concerns were
addressed by Scotiabank's
Bruno Styles.
According to Mr Styles, say-
ing is key to building up a "nest
egg" for any purpose, particu-
larly for the down-payntent on
a home.
He stated that once all nec-
essary documents are submit-
ted, a bank can give condition-
al approval in about 24 hours.
Reminding employees that
they are working in "a most
promising sector with a solid
future for many years to
come," CBR vice-president of
administration and external
affairs Robert Sands said:
"You must take advantage of
this progressive step to bring

advantage of the initiative.


together Scotiabank and
Arawak Homes to create the
opportunity to own your
homes."
Mr Sands told staff that they


are among the highest earners
in the country, but he also
admonished them about bad
spending habits.
Charging them with the


Many of these individuals,
said Dr Beneby, have been
affected in different ways, and
have become socially unaccept-,
able, stigmatized because of
observations. People, he con-
tinued, have to be educated and
understand what is going on
with these individuals.
Dr Beneby was addressing
particular concerns about a
seemingly mentally deranged
woman who, on several occa-
sions over the past few weeks,
has been seen bathing nude in
the parking lot of an establish-
ment on the corner of Nassau
Street and Boyd R~oad.
Pointing out that he is not a
mental health expert, Dr Bene-
liy said that as citizens of the
Bahamas we should share the
responsibility for these individ-
uals.


"Before we had the degree
of advancement that we have,
we had good support systems
where a family member would
provide, talk, and 'cover' them,"
said Dr Beneby. "Certainly you
wouldn't have people beirig
exposed on the streets."
"We talk so much about com-
munity initiativess" Dr Beneby
continued, "but the community
as a whole has to provide the
support."
"This is a condition that
begins in the social setting first.
That is where the challenge is.
In my opinion there should be
people in that community who,
if they were to take on the inter-
est, who can prevent this per-
son from behaving that way in
the public."
Not wanting to place all of
the responsibility on the pub-


lic, however, Dr Beneby said
that no single initiatives will
address the problems facing
New Providence's mentally
deranged. He also noted that
the health care system has alsso
failed these "social misfits.'\
"Yes, you need the comfndf-
nity centre, the half way hdisse,
and the occupational placelfor
these persons. You need more
people trained in expertiseato
work in those places, and you
need the funding to suppoftt t,
but you need that to be inte-
grated in such a manner *th~t
the outcome is beneficialtot
society," Dr Beneby said. '.
"The Bahamas," Ife noted,
"has made tremendous strides
in thie delivery of health'~R
services."
However, in all of these ~i~s
the progress has not bee
same, a'nd the focus ona

of attention," said Dr Bedery.
"So going forward, becausefwse
can't stop acute care, we i1eixi
to share the focus with public
health, which would include
some of these community
issues."
"We have resource chal-
lenges," he said, "but it does
not mean we are not making
progress. It speaks to the fact
that the progress that we are
making is not in pace with oth2-
er social developments in youlr
society. And we need to, as a
country, as a people, deal ivith

about. Not just institutionalized

gFpy TRIBUNE STAFF WRITER
E~OPLE in Exuma fear their
igliad has now become the new
"ghft~spot" for Haitian immigration,
with boatloads of refugees turning
up every month in search of work.
*,Residents say hundreds of immi-
Brimts line the roads into George
Tobwn every morning in the hope of
picking up a day's employment, then
go back into the bush if they are
unsuccessful.
"It's getting crazy," said one
Scf rce, "the police tell us they are
~inqible to do anything about it unless
'asked by the immigration depart-
ment. And immigration has only
four guys down here they are out-
numbered by immigrants by at least
100 to one."
With the political situation in Haiti
once again in a precarious state, even
though elections were held less than


allowed to touch them unless they
have permission from immigration."
Locals are particularly alarmed
because of the recent malaria out-
break. They believe poor sanitation
among the immigrants is creating a
serious health hazard.
Residents are asking why author-
ities are apparently turning a blind
eye to the problem.
Yesterday, both police and immi-
gration officials mn Exuma said they
were not authorised to discuss the
situation.
The Tribune was referred to the
Immigration Department in Nassau,
however no calls to senior officials
were returned up to press tune.


SHAITIANS are reportedly
arriving regularly on Exama in
vessels like this one


three months ago, the Bahamas can
expect a continued influx of refugees.
And with Exuma now gaining a
reputation as a resortl development
centre, more and more Haitians are
expected to turn up on the island.
"They are landing every month
on the south eastern side of the
island," said Mr Collingwood Turn-
quest. "Between 6.30 and 8.30 every
morning, they are on the roadside
waiting to be hired.
"Then, after about 9.30am, they
go back into the bush. They are out
on the street every day. Everyone is
talking about it. There are so many
of them that there is not enough
work.
"They are coming because there is
work in Exuma and there is no resis-
tance. They just land and walk
through the bush. I gather there are
not enough immigration people here

Having been denied bail, Kozeny has
been on remand at Fox Hill Prison since

hearing, Kozeny has. made several,
appearances in Magistrate Carolita

Kozeny is accused of being the driving

bribery scheme which sought to corrupt
Azerbaijan officials so as to gain a con-
trolling interest mn that country's state-
owned oil company SOCAR during its
privatization process in the mid-1990s.

charges. u .u

relatives who flew in from Miami to meet them. It is
reported that Mr Vallejo was hit in the face with a
baton while using the public telephone.outside the

RBPF seeking donations from the

WBy KARAN MINNIS

AS part of a continuing
effort to establish a Bahamian
DNA database, the Royal
Bahamnas Police Force is plan-
ning to travel to several Fami-
ly Islands within the next few

samples, according to Associ-
ated Press.
In May, officers conducted a
DNA collection exercise in New
Providence, in which samples
were taken from members of
the* public who volunteered to
take part in the initiative.
The police are hoping to
gather around 500 samples
from the Bahamnian population
to start the database according
to (thief Superintendent Quinn

;VENEZUELAN President
Hxigo Chavez on Tuesday
arrrved in Russia for a three-
day visit that is expected to
include signing several arms
deals that have raised the ire of
the*United States, according to
Ass'pciated Press.
Chavez arrived from neigh-
boring Belarus, where he met
with authoritarian President
Alexander Lukashenko, who
shares his strong anti-US views.
Chavez's first stop in Russia
was the southern city of Vol-
gogjiad, formerly known as Stal-
ingrad, where he planned to vi-
it a vast World War II monu-
ment and a t~ractor factory.
Greeted at the airport by top
regional officials and uniformed
Coscs, aCha ez folwd Cs;
of vodka from a cup placed on a
sa e heads to Moscow on
PWed esdayl id meets with
Pr'ietV mirir Puin on
TThursday. Chavez is to sign a
series of major Russian weapons
contracts, including a more than
US$1 billion deal for 30 Su-30
fighter jets and 30 helicopters.
Chavez has used surging oil
revenues to modernise
Venezuela's military, signing
multi-billion defence deals with
countries including Ruissia and
Spain. Venezuela earlier
reathed a deal to buy 100,000
1(al'pshnikov assault rifles and
is hoping to set up factories to
produce the rifles under licence.
during talks with
Lukashenko, the two sides
signed seven agreements on
nulitary-technical co-operation,
economic, energy and other ties
as well as a dechiration pledging
a strategic partnership. Bilater-
al trade was just under US$16
million in 2005.

this exercise \will eventually
mean that local law enforce-
ment officials will no longer
have to rely on forensic labs in
Florida.
According to police, the
DNA samples will be used to
assist in investigations, particu-
larly those in which bodily fluids
may have been shed such as
homicides or sexual offenses.
"The database," Mr McCart-
ney said, "will be used as a ref-
erence arid not a crime-solving
tool. The objective of the data-
base will be to see how many
persons in a certain area have
the same DNA make up. This
will not be used as a main crime
tool."
"That is why the' collection
process is to be completely con-
fidential, meaning that no name
or other information will be tak-
en and the samples will be
destroyed after examinationn"
Grand Bahama, Eleuthera


and Long Island have been
identified as the next three
places where samples will be
collected, he said.
"We are hoping to go to
Grand Bahama sometime in
early August, Eleuthera in Sep-
tember and to Long Island in
October.
"By going to these islands,
we feel that we should be able
to get the variety of persons
who make up the Bahamian
population in our database, as
we are trying to get as many
samples as possible."
1Mr McCartney explained that
his department has yet to
analyse the samples already col-
lected, as those specimens are
being stored until the datebase
if fully compiled.
Expecting to begin the analy-
sis process by mid-2007, Mr
McCartney said the database
should be completed before
2008.

to say how much inoney Petrotrin was

Labour leaders did not immediately

The walkout stems from an eight-
month salary dispute between Petrotrin
and the Oilfieldsl Workers Trade
Union, which represents some 5,000
of the company's workers and has
insisted on a 35 per cent wage increase
for employees.
Negotiations broke dowq over the

offer' of a 10 per cent salary increase
over three years, and a lump payment
equal to 2 per cent of salaries, Corneal
said.

to be largely an opportunity for
Chaivez to put forth anti-US
rhetoric. Both Lukashenko and
Chavez claim the' United States
is trying to overthrow their gov-
ernments.
"The jaws of impedialism and
hegemony have clenched over
Belarus," Chavez said Tu~esday.
"Our countries should keep
their hands on their knives."
Chavqz has courted foes
and critics of Washington in
what he calls an effort to cre-
ate a global counterbalance
to US domination. He has
crafted a socialist trade bloi
with Cuba and Bolivia, signed
a series of deals with Iran,
and supported North Kore-


a's right to test-fire missiles.
Belarusian Foreign Minister
Sergei Martynov said the sides
agreed on "mutual support on
.all key questions in internation-
al organizations," suggesting
Belarus would back Chavez's
effort to secure a non-perma-
nent UN Security Council seat.
The US government is lobby-
ing to block Venezuela's bid for
a seat, backing Guatemala
instead. The General Assembly
will decide the issue mna secret
ballot in October.
Belarus and Venezuela
agreed to create joint ventures
for the extraction and sale of
NVenezuelan oil and gas, Belaru-
stan Security Council chief Vik-


tor Sheiman said. A Belarusian
administration official, who
demanded anonymity because
he was not authorised to speak
about the issue for attribution,
said the agreement means
Belarus will be involved in the
extraction and sale of oil and
gas to the United States.
Prime Minister Sergei
Sidorsky said that Belarus will
increase deliveries of fertilizer
to Venezuela tenfold and plans
to build truck, tractor and
heavy machinery factories in
Venezuela.
Chavez also was slated to vis-
it Qatar and Mali. He has aban-
doned plans to travel to North
Korea.

woI sadde Ptnh ts road-
works would include both the
re-routed West Bay Street, tak-
ing it around the planned
Cable Beach resoit campus,
and 'corridor seven'. This
refers to the road that will con-
nect Baha Mar's development
to JFK Drive, and act as the
main route bringing guests to
the resort from Sir Lynden
Pindling International Airport.
Mr Sands described as "an
ongoing process" the obtain-
ing of all necessary govern-
mnent permits and approvals
for the roadworks to begin,
adding that the developer was
"working" to deal with all out-
standing issues.
He explained that road-
works by their nature involved
a great deal of planning, with
Baha Mar having to liaise with
the utilities Bahamnas Elec-
tricity Corporation, Bahamas
Telecommunications Compa-
ny and Water & Sewerage
Corporation as well as ~the
MiniiStry of Public Wprks and


Street will open up land for the
rest of its redevelopment plans.
Following on close behind
the re-routing will be con-
struction of the Commercial
Village, which will house the
relocated commercial banks -
Scotiabank, Fidelity Bank
(Bahamas), and Common-
wealth Bank and the Gov-
ernment buildings the Cecil
Wallace-Whitfield Centre,
police station, and Gaming
Board and Bahama Develop-
ment Bank,
These relocations, which are
being done at Baha Mar's
expense, will only be carried
out once the Commercial Vil-
lage is completed.
Meanwhile, Mr Sands said
the $80 milliontrenovation of
the Radisson Cable Beach


Resort would have minimal
impact on business, as 350
rooms would remain open dur-
ing the first phase.
In the first phase, apart from
the public spaces on the lob-
by level, some 350 rooms in
the Radisson will be closed.
HIowever, the 50 percent of
room inventory remaining
open equated to about four
fifths of the business the Radis-
son was expected to attract
during the tourism season's tra-
ditionally slower period, Mr
Sands explained.
He said that the 350 rooms
remaining open represented
"80 per cent of what we will
do in terms of business during
the lean months, especially
September, Oictober and
November, even' December


until the third week".
Mr Sands said the first phase
of the Radisson redevelop-
ment, which was awarded to
Osprey Developers, is sched-
uled to becompleted by March
2007, in time for the E~aster:
period.
-He added that the second'
phase largely involved an over-
Shaul of the resort's rooms, not
the public.spaces, meaning that
it would be "done much quick-
er".
The entire Radisson projects
is expected to be completed by-
September 2007, and Mr Sands:
said Baha Mar was "still work-:
ing towards finalising" the
]Radisson's riebranding as a
Sheraton resort with the lat-
ter's parent company and fran-;
chisor, Starwood.


the Bahamas Environment,
Science and Technology
(BEST) Commission.
Mr Sands said Baha Mar
also had to deal with the Min-
istry of Finance on the.gov-
ernment financing side.
He added: "It's not a simple
task, but documented process
was provided by the Ministry
of Works and we've been fol-
lowing that process.
"We're getting there. Things
are actually happening. A
tremendous amount of work
is taking place."
The existing West Bay Street
will only be closed once the re-
routed road is completed and
opened.

SBy DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport
Reporter
FREEPORT Prime Minis-
ter Perry Christie said the total
investment in Freeport by
Danish investor Preben Olsen
and his New Hope Holdings ,
Company could eventually
amount to $500 million.
Speaking as the Grand
Bahama Port Authority signed
a $6.8 million contract with Mr
Olsen's company for the sale
of Port L~ucaya Marina, and
nearby property for the con-
struction of a $20 million con-
do-hotel, Mr Christie said the
acquisition was a demonstra-
tion of confidence in the
Freeport economy.
Also attending the signing
were Hannes Babak, Grand
Bahama Port Authority chair-
man, Sir Albert Miller, its chief
executive, and Minister of
Tourism, Obie Wilchcombe.
Mr Olsen, who acquired the
Lucayan Marina Village last
year, plans to combine ~both
marina facilities to be able to
attract mega yachts from the
US and European markets.
With building permits
already in hand, Mr Olsen has
brought in a barge load of
'building equipment and sup-
plies to begin construction of
the new condo hotel. He has
also announced plans to host
some 35 to 40 mega yachts in
November at Port Lucaya.
The Prime Minister said: "I
would like to thank you all for
allowing me to participate in
what is another step in the new


efforts to promote and rede-
finer the business community
in Freeport, the tourism envi-
ronment in F~reeport, and in
Grand Bahama.
"So, in essence this is a good
day for Freeport. It comes at a
timne when governmnt is mak-
ing major efforts to reposition
the tourism industry in Grand
Bahama, where we are mov-
ing quickly with respect to the
reintroduction 0f Royal Oasis
into the economy of Freeport,
where I am very optimistic that
we are headed in the right way,
and in the right direction.
"And this is great encour-
agement to us when we see we
have someone from Denmark,
yet again, who is prepared to
come in and invest so hand-
somely in this island's econo-
my."
On the question of the Roy-
al Oasis, sources have told The
Tribune that the Florida-led
group has emerged as the
front-runner for the resort
ahead of Harcourt Develop-
ments, and is lining up. a Las
Vegas hotel/casino as its oper-
ating partner. Both are still
negotiating with the holder of
the mortgage and debenture
on the Royal Oasis, Lehman
Brothers' private equity arm.
Meanwhile, Mr Babak said
the investment by New Hope
H-oldings would bring a lot of
employment to the Freeport
area, which was much needed.
"I am very happy we can get
together to sign the agreement

THE TRIBUNE


IS crime out of control? Can
we manage this problem? The
first few weeks of 2006 may
lead us to believe otherwise.
As mentioned a few weeks
ago, we have seen a major
spike in the amount of criminal
activity. The police really have
their hands full.
But is crime a police prob-
lem? Take, for example, the
repair man, be he a plummer
or mechanic. Is the fact your
septic tank has backed up, or
your car is unable to start, real-
ly his problem? When we con-
sid'er it, the issue may have
been transferred to the police,
but crime is really our prob-
lemn.
So, what are we going to do,
realistically, to solve the prob-
lem? There are many suggest-
ed solutions, primarily focused
on the concept of harsher
penalties.There are calls from
the public for longer sentences
and hangings. These remedies,
I feel, are at the other end of
the spectrum, similar to using a
bigger mop to soak up the spill.
However, my concern is how
we prevent the spill in the first
place.
Phillip Purpura. in his book
Security and Loss Prevention,
states: "In many businesses, so
many people are stealing that
those who do not steal are the


deviants and outcast: theft
becomes normal and honest
become's abnormal."
What makes people steal is
the question this article will
attempt to unravel, as it is key
to managing the problem. The
old adage: walking in one's
shoes to see how they think, is
essential if companies desire
to reduce loss via this avenue.
Aside from crime statistics
~provided by the Royal
Bahamas Police Force, and
studies done by other groups
such as the Coalition of Pri-
vate Sector Organisations,
there is very little documented
information about employee
theft in the Bahamas. '
Psychologists, sociologists
and criminologists have strug-
gled for, years to understand
and describe the motivations
of dishonest individuals. These
disciplines have provided
numerous studies in an effort
to identify personality traits
and characteristics most fre-
quently associated with theft
or fraud. They have also
attempted to identify social
forces and environmental fac-
tors that contribute to, or
might explain, why certain
individuals are dishonest and
others are not. Only recently
have these studies been direct-
ed at white collar crime, as the
focus has been on violent
crimes such as rapes, murders
and bank robbers. .
This all changed when, in the
early 1980s, researchers from
the University of Minnesota,
John Clark and Richard


Hollinger, published the results
of an extensive three-year
study: they conducted on
employee theft. This landmark
study identified five character-
istics to explain the phenome-
non of emplojree theft. They
are.........
1. External Econibmic
Pressures

Prior to this study, the most
frequent explanation of
employee theft was that
employees stole from their
employers because they had a
personal problem involving
alcohol, gambling, illicit affairs,
or similar situations.
This position asserts that
"when economic pressures
become great, people may turn
to illegitimate means to
achieve socially acceptable
goals". Clark and Hollinger
observed that the connection
between the nature of eco-
nomic needs and the manner
in which the stolen materials
satisfy those needs had not


yet been established.
2. Youth and Work


Another commoql1y
expressed theory said that
younger employees are simply
not as honest or hardworking
as previous generations. Cited
were two studies of retail
employees caught in the act of
stealing merchandise.
Both studies indicated a dis-
proportionate number of
younger, newly-hired employ-
ees were involved in theft.
However, no clear and con-
vincing evidence existed to
confirm this theory.

3. Opportunity
The opportunity to steal'
items of value was considered
one of the primary factors in
employee theft by security
practitioners. It was generally
held that every employee is

THE TRIBUNE


SBy CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Business Reporter
SOME Cable Bahamas
Coralwave customers have
been inconvenienced for the
past several days, as a glitch in
the Internet service has pre-
vented them from sending any
e-mail to non-Coralwave
addresses.
According to one customer
who brought the matter to The
Tribune's attention, although
clients could receive e-mail,
they sotuld not repl s Isa d
not end with @coralwave.com.
Any that did all bounced back
toHoweer edhey were able to
send or reply to e-mail that had
a Coralwave address. The


problem is understood to be
impacting subnets, or groups
of Cable Bahamas' customers,
but not all are affected.
The customer, who asked
not to be named, said it was a
big inconvenience, especially
for companies who send a vast
amount of e-mails related to
business transactions on any
given day.
"We have really become
quite reliant on e-mails, so you
can imagine the disruption this
must have caused for business
for tansatins,tand fr stoes
the source said.
The customer, who works
near downtownsveIdo lhy
wave customers in that immne-
diate area with the same prob-


lem.
The customer said that when
they contacted Cable
Bahamas, the company said it
was aware of the problem and
had its technical team working
to address the situation as
quickly as possible. They were
told that the problem was the
result of a fibre-axial glitch.
As of yesterday, some e-
mails were going through, but
the source said the situation
was not entirely resolved.
The Tribune contacted Keith
Wsa uniodirea toer hPaublse
who said Barry Williams in the
technical department would
contact the paer with a s teed
before press deadline last
night, though.


Tribune that Mr Butler's resignation from Aba-
.co Markets' Board is to enable him to take a
seat on the BSL Board, and thus avoid any
perceived conflict of interest.
Abaco Markets' Board has thus been
reduced in the past few weeks to just five
remammig directors Mr Symonette, Frank
Crothers, Dionisio D'Aguilar, Louis Dames,
and Robert Sands. The latter two are repre-
senting the interests of the hotel industry pen-
sion funds, which are major investors in Abaco
Markets.
The AGM is understood to have been told
that IMalcolm Pinder resigned from the Abaco
Markets.Board due to the fact that the com-
pany was in the process of selling all its Abaco-
based operations, meaning that a director from
that island was no longer required.
In addition, Barry Malcolm was said to have
resigned so he could focus on other interests,
although he would still act as a consultant to the
company on its Freeport interests.

there are 5.4 miles of mega
yachts under construction
worldwide, and a very large
number of these yachts will be
coming in here," he said.
Mr Olsen, a commercial, res-
idential and industrial devel-
oper in Florida for many years,
saw great opportunities for
boating in the Bahamas dur-
ing a trip to the islands.
"I came in here as a boater
and saw the great opportuni-
ties in the boating world here.
And when I got to know Erik
Christiansen, who had, accord-
ing to Florida Cruising Guide,
the only five-star marina in the
Bahamas, we certainly had a
very keen interest in being able
to develop that further," he
added.
"One of the first things we
did when we got involved with
Lucayan Marina Village was
to change the size of the boat
slips to accommodate larger
boats. And, obviously, that is
why it became obvious that
this marina at [Port Lucaya]
would really give some better
opportunities.
"A lot of these boats travel
iP large groups, and we have
already made plans for a mega
yacht rendezvous mn Novem-
ber, where we will have about


35 mega yachts coming into
this area, and we could not
accommodate that with one
marina."
Mr Olsen has assured all of
the employees at Port Lucaya
Marina that they will be
retained by New Hope Hold-
ings.

TOgether
"We have put together two
of the finest teams of employ-
ees I have ever worked with. I
think the people at Port
Lucaya Marina and people we
have at Grand Bahama Yacht
Club make a fantastic team.
They are all pros and know the
boating industry and will all
stay on board," he said,
According to Mr Olsen,


marketing of the marina is pri-
marily being carried out at
boat shows and through pub-
licity in boating magazines.
"It is going to be more peo-
ple coming in, and the fact that
we are combining the two
marinas. we will be working
with a lot bigger budget to pro-
mote the area," he added.
In addition to the marina
expansion and new co-ndo
hotel, Mr Olsen revealed that
New Hope is building high-end
homes up to a value of $12 mil-
lion over at the Lucayan Mari-
na Village.
"We are also building a
beach club at Taino Beach,
and so there is going to be a lot
of opportunities for Bahami-
ans in the construction jobs,"
he said.


Mr Olsen said New Hope
plans to expand the marina
and build a 240-room condo
hotel, comprising of 62 four-
bedroom suites/units for the
home ownership market. He
hopes to have the hotel opera-
tional in about year.
"The condo hotel we will be


breaking ground on in the next
three to four weeks, aswe have
already obtained our clearing
permits from the Port Author-
ity," Mr Olsen said.
New Hope Holdings, opera-
tor of the Lucayan Marina Vil-
lage, and now the Port Lucaya
Marina, plans to combine both
marinas to create one major
facility that will be able to
attract increased numbers of
mega yachts.
Mr Olsen said the company
entered into the agreement to
acquire the Port Lucaya Mari-
na last year, and was granted
approval from the Govern-
ment in March to take over the
marmna.

UnderStands

The Tribune understands
that initially, the proposed pur-
chase also included the Port
Lucaya Marketplace, but was
whittled down in negotiations
to just include the marina and
associated land. This newspa-
per revealed that Mr Olsen
was on the verge of concluding
the deal last week Wednesday.
Mr Olsen explained that
there was a huge market for
mega yachts.

are clear. Enforcing the sancd 1
tions must also be uniform. It ** .
takes only one incident in" 6~
which managerial employees .;r
are given preferential treat-
ment to undermine the entire
policy. Negative sanctions for
theft must apply to everyone in
order to be effective, and man-
agement must be prepared to e.
uniformly dispense organisa- .

suggests that the broadly-
shared formal and informal
social structure within a com-
pany greatly influences
whether theft persists or not.
Although not empirically
tested until Clark and
Hollinger's study, it empha-
sised the role individual work
group norms played in deter-
ring workplace theft. In addi-
tion, there was evidence in
existing studies that theorised a
relationship between supervi-
sors/management, personnel
and employees in deterring or
encouraging theft behaviour
by employees.
Both theories are similar to
the deterrence doctrine, which
assumes the threat of negative
social sanctions from the com-
pany or authorities can affect
the amount of theft in a firm.
In essence, employees will be
more likely to steal if they per-
ceive the threat of detection
.and/or punishment for this
behaviour to be weak or non-
existent.
Regardless, the two primary


objectives here are to reduce
the events of theft and fraud
in the workplace. The compa-
ny must be clear on identifying
and uniformly sanctioning
unacceptable behaviour, and
penalising persons for infrac-
tions.
As a result, regulations
regarding theft by employees
must be clear and frequently
reiterated to ensure prohibi-
tions regarding such activity
are understood by all employ-
ees. In my opinion, the mes-
sage concerning loss preven-
tion and penalties resulting
from such action is lost or
even neglected during pre-
employment orientations for
new workers, and never again
addressed until someone is
actually caught stealing.
Companies cannot rely sole-
ly on negative sanctions from
society to apply to the work-
place. Individual sanctions
within the company are impor-
tant to help mold the culture
and make certain expectations

This theory was also never

4. Job Dissatisfaction
The idea that there is a cause
and effect between job dissat-
isfaction and employee theft
had not been included in most
studies of workplace theft until
Clark and Hollinger conducted
theirs. The theory suggests that
the company from whom
employees steal may influence
such theft because manage-

responsible for job dissatisfac-

ducks the king and also the heart
continuation, and is forced to win the
tiext heart with the ace.
Since it is impossible to win nine
tricks ,without utilizing his spades,
declarer crosses to dummy with a
club to take a spade fine~sse. That
brings declarer to the critical point of
the deal, though he mightpnot realize
this until it's too late. If he leads the
jack of spades to take the' finesse, he
goes down against best defense, even
though the finesse wmns. East and
South follow low, and the jack holds
the trick.
When declarer repeats the
finesse, he is forced to wmn mnhis own
hand and can no longer capture
East's kring. South can cash eight
tricks, but eventually finishes down
one.
Declarer's error came when he
led the jack of spades from dummy
first rather than the nine. The mine
lead permits three spade finesses
through East, while the jack lead per-
mits only two. This seemingly
insignificant choice makes all the
difference between making the poly
tidct and going down. ai

ROBIN VIK beat defending champion
Guillermo Coria in the first round Tues-
day and David Ferrer withdrew, com-
pleting the elimination of the top three
seeds in the first two days of the Croatia
Open.
Vik easily dispatched third-seeded
Coria 6-2, 6-3, while No. 1 Ferrer pulled
out citing exhaustion after prevailing in a
five-hour final on Sunday in Stuttgart,
Germany. Their eliminations followed
Albert Portas' three-set victory over No.
2 seed and fellow Spaniard Juan Carlos
Ferrero on Monday.
Coria was on serve at 2-2 before drop-

He broke Vik to open the second set,

WITH another win in the
2006 Esso Summer Classic,
Jason Rolle ensured this
tournament was twice as suc-
cessful as any he has played
in all year.
Along with a championship


in the Boys' 18 and under
division which he captured
on Monday afternoon, Rolle
added his second title in the
final of the Boys' 16 and
under with a (6-3, 7-5) win
yesterday at the National
Tennis Center.
For the second time in the
tournament, Rolle squared
off against William Fountain
in a final round. -


With both players fresh off
a hard fought three set match
in the 16 and under final, (7-
5, 6-7, 6-4), they were set to
repeat a similar performance
in yesterday's final.
Rolle aSserted his style of
play early in the match, keep-
ing Fountain on the move
and constantly landing fore-
hand winners along the base-
line.


He controlled early in the
inatch, taking a 3-0 lead ear-
ly in the first set.



Fountain showed flashes of
brilliance at various points
throughout the match, but
was less consistent in many
aspects of his game.
He appeared openly frus-


entire career," Coria said, adding that
the shoulder surgery he underwent forced
him to change his grip. "Unfortunately, I
cannot go back to my old grip."

COmpletillo
Coria played the last two weeks in Bas-
tad and Amsersfoort after not competing
smece mid-May, reaching last Saturday's
semifinals mn the Netherlands.
The eliminations left No. 4 Novak
Djokovic as the highest remaining seed.
The 19-year-old Serb easily defeated
Luka Belic, a Croattan wild-card mak-
ing his ATP tour debut, 6-3, 6-3.
Djokovic beat Nicolas Massu on Sun-
day to wmn the Amsersfoort title for his
first ATP tournament victory and has
risen to 28thminthe rankings. He reached

Fifth-seeded Carlos Moya of Spain


joined Djokovic in the second round, but
No. 6 Alberto Martin was eliminated.
Moya needed 2 1/2 hours to beat Czech

AUSTRALIAN cricket
captain Ricky Ponting wants
a shdwdown with the same
E~ngland team that won the
Ashes last year when the two
squads meet again in Novem-
ber,^
In an interview Tuesday,
Posting said Australia was
prep~aring for the five-test
series in expectation that
Eipgland would field its
stsdagest team. He placed lit-
tie~emphasis on reports of
injuries to key players
Midfhael Vaughan, Andrew
Ffiioff and Simon Jones.
You've got to remember
that -these guys have been
ridedl out a long time ago ...
and there's still four months
tp go," Ponting told the Aus-
tralian Associated Press.
:'It's a long time to get over
ani-sort of injury. I'm pretty
stirC they'll want all those
three guys out here if they
can get them here, so that's
1;he way I'm looking at it."
P ionting said he was looking
forward to a rematch to
avezige the Ashes defeat in
England last year.
sa t Idlove tog tal edatly the
possible. Our team will be
fairly similar as well I think,
just looking at the way things
are gomng at the moment.
We feel that we've got
things really going in the right
direction at the moment. If
you look at what they've been
doing you'd probably say
they'd be the opposite,"
Ponting said.
But he urged Australia's
players not to let their eager-
ness for revenge to prevent
them from playing to their
full potential.
"We did that last time," he
said. "We won't do that
again. We all wanted it so
much. A4rhen we got put
under pressure in a couple of
test matches (in 2005) ... I
think that actually got in the
way. That's something we
have to be really conscious
about.' "
Ponting said he will make
that message plain when the
team meets in late August.
We'll all get together and
we'll talk ... and make sure
that we're not treating it any
differently or any more seri-
ous than any other series
we've played in," he said.
"The more sometimes you
build things up the harder it
can be to perform."

JERMAINE 'Choo-Choo' Mackey can't
wait for Friday night for his title shot.
Mackey, the Bahamas welterweight cham-
pion, will take on Marcus 'Marvelous'
Thomas as the Barbadian comes to town to
defend his World Boxing Council's Caribbean
Boxing Federation title at the Radisson Cable
Beach Resort.
"I'm in top shape and I can't wait for this
fight. I'm ready to go," said an excited Mack-
ey as he continues his training at the Nation-
al Boxing Gym under the supervision of coach
Ray Minus Jr.
Both fighters will be going into the main
event sporting undefeated records. Mackey is
10-0, while Thomas is 7-0. But Mackey said it
won't matter when they step into the ring.
"It's going to be a good fight," Mackey
projected. "We are both undefeated, but only
one man can win the fight and that is going to
be me."
Unlike his preparation for all of his other
fights, Mackey said he understands the itnpor-
tance of being properly prepared for the inter-
national challenge on the First Class Promo-
tion's' card.
"I'm training dead hard. I'm doing the same
things that I have been doing, but I have been
working a little more on my jab, making sure
that it's sharp," Mackey stated.

Opportunity
He will be following in the footsteps of
Meacher 'Pain' Major, who clinched the
WBC's FEDECaribe lightweight title..But
Mackey said this is his opportunity to shine
and he intends to prove to the Bahamian
public that "hard work" dbes pay off.
Although it's an international title fight,
Mackey said he doesn't believe that it will
be bigger than the showdown that he had
with 'Marvelous' Marvin Smith when he
secured the Bahamian title from the.champi-
on.
"I'm just going to out-box and win the
fight," Mackey warned the general public.
"I'm not going for a knockout, but if it comes,
I will take it."
Mackey said although Thomas has been
around, having fought in more than 100 ama-
Steurfighrts, he's srtatzaking 19m lightly.,But

trlAe a t h5 n

just got a little better, now
that track and field has start-
ed.
Having already secured
five medals in swimming, the
Bahamas opened up the first
day of competition with six
sm-ials se o k plce
late yesterday evening
Advancing through to last
night's semis were Derrick
Atkins, Jamal Rolle, Andret-
ti Bain, Michael Mathieu,
Tamicka Clarke and
Savetheda Fynes.
Atkins, the national
rcri i older in the 10m'
heat while Rolle was third in
his respective heat. The
women's 100m went straight
to the semi-final rounds,
with both Clarke anld Fynes
automatically advancing.
Bain and Mathieu will
head into the semi-finals
with the third and fourth
fastest times.
The times from the first
round of competition were
not available up until press
time.
On hand to witness the
early performances was team
manager Ralph McKinney,
who said the athletes will
have to keep hydrated if
they want to go all the way.
McKinney described the
weather conditions as "siz-
zling hot and very humid."
H~e said: "There is a good
chance for the Bahamnas to
secure at least three to four
medals on the night. We will
be looking forward to wit-
nessing the finals 6f the
men's 100m.
"LWe just might just wvit-
ness a new national record
set by Deirick Atkins, he
may jiast pull this one of as
he looks towards a gold
medal. We aren't counting
Jamal out of the hunt either
- he should be able to run a
fast time that will get him a
medal."
Atkins recently set the
national record in the 100m
for men less than a month
ago at the under 23 NACAC
championships. The record
is set at 10.14 seconds.
Although many of the top
athletes from around the
English speaking Caribbean
opted not to participate in
the games, due to scheduled
races on the European cir-
t Bahma pul ta the
Spanish speaking Caribbean
countries made sure that all
of their athletes were com-
peting.
McKinney pointed to the '
women's 400m, where Mexi-
co's national record holder
Anna Guervara will take to
the track. Currently ranked
seventh in the world, Gue-
vara will be the only athlete
who tops the IAAF world
ranking list to compete.
Bahamas national record
holder in the 400m Tonique
Williams-Darling and
Olympian finalist Christine
Amertil will be competing in
the Norwich Union London
Grand Prix.
As a result, the Bahamas
turned to the junior quarter-
milers for representation,
but they were unable to
compete.
McKinney said: "We had
some difficulties with enter-
ing the 400m runners in the
women's division. Shekeitha
(Henfield) and Sasha (Rolle)
were listed to run the 400m,
but due to technical prob-
lems we were unable to
enter their names.
"When we realized the
problem it was a little to late,
but these two athletes are
the only athletes who were
unable to compete in their
individual races."
Also scheduled to com-
pete yesterday evening was
national record holder in the
100m hurdles Tiavannia


Thomipson, followed by the
men's 400m finals for both
men and women.

TThe duo participated mn the

eit the Stockholm Stadium in
two separate races in the
women's 200 m~etres, which
took the spotlight in the
absence of both the 100 and

The meet was .an historic
one as it marked the 50th
anniversary celebrations of the
Equestrian segment of the
1956 Olympic Games that was
staged at the stadium.

St~ck~holm

The Olympic Games were
held in Melbourne, in 1956,
but the Australian quarantine
regulations prevented the
staging of equestrian compe-

Stockholm. ,
It was the first and only time
that the Olympic Games have
been held in two different
countries at the same time.
In Stockholm, it was an
Olympic-type atmosphere as
the DN Ga lan meet- got
underway.
Competing in the A race,
Ferguson-McKenzie clocked
22.59 seconds for third place
behind American 'Sanya
Richards, who was second in
