JUBILANT residents of
Guana Cay were celebrating
another victory over the Bak-
er's Bay developers last night
after the Privy Council ordered
that work on the controversial
project should stop immedi-
ately.
Residents were said to be
"dancing in the streets" as the
London-based council hand-
ed down its ruling.
But the stay or injunction to
stop work on the project could
be lifted if the Baker's Bay
developers, US-based Discov-
ery Land Company, are suc-
cessful with an application for
it to be discharged. The com-
pany can apply to discharge
the injunction with 48 hours'
notice.
Discovery Land Company
executives last night described
the association's injunction as
a "stalling tactic", and said
they had instructed their attor-
neys to "immediately apply"
to have it set aside.
Dr Livingstone Marshall,
Baker's Bay's senior vice-pres-

ident of environmental and
community affairs, said: "The
developers nor their attorneys
have seen this order. Any such
order was made without hear-
ing submissions by the devel-
opers or the Government...
"We view this latest tactic
by the Save Guana Cay Reef
Association as a stalling tac-
tic. Importantly, we believe
that this latest legal manoeuvre
by Mr Smith (their attorney)
and Save Guana Cay Reef
Association will be quickly
addressed, and hopefully dis-
posed of, once our case and
the Government's case is pre-
sented to the Privy Council."
The injunction is the latest
dramatic turn in the Baker's
Bay saga. Critics claim the


$500 million resort and mega-
marina development is des-
tined to change the way of life
on the tiny island in the Aba-
cos and destroy the marine
environment.
The Privy Council judgment
was in response to a petition
by the Save Guana Cay Reef
Association, which cited Cab-
inet secretary Wendell Major,
the minister. responsible for
Crown Lands and the
Bahamas treasurer in its
action.
The association sought leave
to appeal against a Bahamas

THE importation of, derelict
vehicles has been a bone of con-,
tention for many consumers and
an issue former Trade and
Industry Minister Leslie Miller
had attempted to solve, but
without success.
The matter, however, is
being pushed to the forefront
by family members of accident
victim Kenneth Bethel, who
now believe that the car he was
driving was sold to him with
major safety hazards.
Kenneth Bethel of Faith
Avenue was involved in a crash
on Mackey Street on Sunday in
his 1997.Acura 3.5 RL. It has


left him in a coma.
Initial investigations by Traf-
fic Police revealed that Mr
Bethel's vehicle lacked a dri-
ver's side airbag. Instead the
airbag had been replaced by
newspapers.
Members of his family, who
were looking over the car fol-
lowing the police investigation,
say the car was also lacking dri-
ver and passenger side seatbelts
as well as a bumper guard,
which they explained is a metal
guard that is located behind the
plastic and foam bumper.

Hundreds benefit from wheelchair generosity


By KRYSTEL ROLLE
HUNDREDS of disabled Bahamians have
benefited from the kindness of the Southeast
Region Wheelchair Foundation, the press were
told yesterday.
About three years ago the foundation,
known as the SRWF, donated 289 wheelchairs
to the Bahamas Association for the Physically
Disabled (BAPD).
According to Sir Durward Knowles, Presi-
dent of BAPD, with the help of Kerzner Inter-
national and Holowesko Foundation, more
than 300 persons across the Bahamas have
made use of the chairs.
Jack Drury, president of SRWF said he saw
the need for the donation, found the sponsors
and delivered the wheelchairs.
"About two years ago I came over to see
exactly what the need was. When I got here I
saw three or four young kids crawling on the
- ground with no wheelchairs. Then I went to the
back I saw a bunch of broken wheelchairs -
and I said Sir Durward, we'll give you all new


wheelchairs," Mr Drury explained.
"Our mission in life is to give wheelchairs to
persons who can't afford them and with won-
derful people like this working with us, it makes
it very easy," he said.
At a ceremony held yesterday at the BAPD
headquarters on Dolphin Drive, three more
persons were given new wheelchairs.
Minister of Health Dr Bernard Nottage, who
was on hand yesterday to present one of the
wheelchairs, thanked the man who was respon-
sible for getting the hundreds of wheelchairs to
those who need them most Mr Knowles.
"The Bahamas is a nice place to be today,
and we believe that we are blessed but even
though we are blessed, there are always those
who have needs and fortunately there are also
those who care about those who have needs. Sir
Durward Knowles is one of those people," Dr
Nottage said.
"We can not have a stable or progressive
society unless those of us who have much are
prepared to do something for those who have
little," he added:

DRIVERS of everything
from taxis to tow trucks may go
on strike next month to protest
increases in the cost of govern-
ment permits, a union leader
said Wednesday, according to
Associated Press.
Puerto Rico's cash-strapped
government has raised the cost
of renewing commercial licens-
es and obtaining a range of
required permits for the trans-
portation sector, said Antonio
Diaz, president of a bus drivers
union.
Operating fees are set to
increase Aug. 18 on a range of
commercial transportation
enterprises, including ambu-
lances and hearses. Private bus
drivers, for example, will see
the cost of renewing a license
rise from $US20 to $US75.

moving 'satisfactorily'


* By MARK HUMES
WITH Ministry of Works
contractors mobilised through-
out the archipelago, Minister
of Education Alfred Sears
reported that the ministry's
school improvement projects
are moving along satisfactorily.
With a little more than a
month to go before the begin-
ning of the new school year,
Mr Sears outlined his min-
istry's most recent endeavors,
which he hopes will begin to
move education in a more pos-
itive direction.
"So far, we have not faced
any challenges," the minister'
said yesterday. "And we are
very happy that we are much
further along at this point than
we were last year."
"The construction at TG
Glover should be mobilised
within the next week, and also
next week, along with Minis-
ter Roberts, we will be doing
field inspections, both in New
Providence and the Family
Islands," Mr Sears said.
In addition, he went on to
say, tenders will go out for the
construction of a new junior
high school in the southern
part of New Providence to ease
the burden on the system
caused by the rapid population


0 ALFRD Sears


growth in the area as a result of
the new housing subdivision.
"In the interim we have to
expand the capacity of HO
Nash Primary School, with
many of the students being
bused in from that part of the
island to HO."
Mr Sears said capacity at CH
Reeves, SC McPherson, and
AF Adderley has been
expanded and the new addi-
tions should come on stream
in September.
The minister also addressed
the much-discussed national
grade average, cautioning the
public to be patient, as
improvement will be incre-
mental.
"We saw an improvement


last year from a D to a D+,"
said the minister. "I hope that
we continue to improve, but I
understand from all the data
from other countries where
they have had to deal with the
same challenges that we are
dealing with is that its an incre-
mental process. What we want
to do is put in place the kind of
processes and policies that will
sustain the improvement."
"One, we are putting more
emphasis on early childhood
education preschool- to give
more of our students a better
start and a better foundation.
Secondly, we have the extend-
ed learning programme where,
for the first time this year, we
have high school students who
are not performing at the req-
uisite grade level attending
summer school.
"Additionally we are putting
more resources in the area of
special education so that stu-
dents with special needs could
be diagnosed early and the
appropriate intervention could
be made."
Mr Sears said more empha-
sis will being placed on char-
acter education, with educa-
tors concentrating on social
skills, responsibility, honesty,
trustworthiness, and good citi-
zenship.


Police investigate allegation


of unnatural sex with boy


* By KRISTINA McNEIL

AN allegation of unnatural
sexual intercourse between an
adult male and a 10-year-old
boy is under investigation by
police.
Chief Superintendent Mar-
vin Dames said an adult man
was detained at a house at
around 4.30am yesterday and
is helping officers with their
inquiry.
He said a second man
sought in connection with the
incident is still at large.
"We're still investigating the
matter and the name of the
arrested individual will not be


released until the decision is
Made whether he is expected
to face charges," Mr Dames
said.
As for the second adult, he
said: "As soon as we get the
authentic truth of that person-
's identity, we will release that
information, but that individ-
ual is at large.
"Attempts are being made
by officers of the Sexual
Offences Squad, Special Oper-
ation officers and patrol offi-
cers to locate that particular
individual."
Police are expecting to gain
more information within the
next week through their inves-


tigation and through interviews
with the parents of the 10-year-
old boy, Mr Dames said.
"I think this incident speaks
to just how important commu-
nity support is to the success of
policing and policing efforts,"
he added.
"This matter came to a head
as the result of a concerned cit-
izen. The police were then able
to get involved and hence we
are in the midst of an investiga-
tion into the matter."

We shall never forget old Violet, the
granddaughter of a slave. Violet lived in Fox
Hill. Her grandson, "Straight Pin," worked at
The Tribune.
We don't know how old Violet was, but
she was an old lady to Sir Etienne who was
born in 1899. Violet, as old as she was, would
walk from her Fox Hill home to The Tri-
bune a couple of times a month to make cer-
tain that that grandson of hers was following
a "godly path" and to listen to Sir Etienne
sing his praises.
It was from Violet that we learned about
her grandmother and slavery and of how
Aunty Vicky had loosed their shackles and
led them out of bondage. No one ever talked
badly about "Aunty Vicky" in front of dear
old Violet.
The old queen's birthday May 23 -
was the biggest national celebration on the
calendar in those days. All schoolchildren,
waving their small Union Jacks, lined up at
Clifford Park to celebrate her birthday. The
children even had a threatening little ditty
about how they would all run away if they
weren't given a holiday on the good queen's
birthday.
In fact the Abolition of Slavery Act was
signed in 1833, four years before the good
queen at the age of 18 ascended the throne.
However, here in the Bahamas a state of
"employers" and "apprentices" continued
until August 1, 1838 when the House of
Assembly agreed that all former slaves were
now completely free to decide their own
future. The slaves gave Queen Victoria cred-
it for their new status.
Keod Smith was fortunate that old Violet
was tucked snugly in her grave on Wednesday
when he threatened the icon, not only of her
generation, but several generations of
Bahamians before her. We can assure him
that she would have walked from Fox Hill,
taken up her position on the House of
Assembly's front step, lit up her clay pipe
and puffed away until he came downstairs.
She would have then cracked him across his
skull with her cane, sat him down beside her
and given him a lesson about Bahamians of
her era those who were here before him.
Those who knew the burdens of slavery, and
were grateful to anyone who fought by their
side to lift that burden. She would have given
him a good lesson in gratitude and apprecia-
tion. She would have cracked him once more
on his bald head and sent him home with a
flea in. his ear that would remind him that
Bahamian history did not start with either
the PLP or Sir Lynden Pindling.

but obviously gratifying to those
persons needing the benefit
thereof them by making them
the "business" of (if only) a
small segment of the public for
whom they could be news.
Undoubtedly the clients
should feel offended by being
vilified in this way, perhaps
beyond the scope of the Judge's
intention. One has only to be
reminded of the smallness of
this community. I suspect the
business community in which
the publication is likely to res-
onate is even smaller so that its
impact will be instant and effec-
tive.
If, as I understand the Clien-
t's grievances over the publica-
tion to be, that just as the Judge
seemed to have drawn inspira-
tion to say what he said from
an Affidavit that was not part of
the record of the case before
him but one which he somehow
had sight of, so too the article


went to press without being
more fully informed by a prop-
er record of the facts that might
best explain the nature of the
case which the clients success-
fully attempted to progress
before the learned Judge on 14h
June 2006.
The clients take some com-
fort from the fact which the
Judge correctly noted in his rul-
ing, namely that the initial
attempt was not at all a fatal
bar to their claims so that, hope-
fully, by showing more atten-
tion to detail in the future the
issues of widespread,profes-
sional misconduct, conflicts of
interest, and self-dealing and
other predatory practices on the
part of their former legal and
business advisers by which they
have been. victimised, will be
given proper ventilation in the
courts before a Judge who
would have had no prior deal-
ings with parties to this recent
ruling.

MAURICE O. GLINTON
Freeport,
Grand Bahama,
July 24, 2006.


EDITOR, The Tribune.

RARELY do I find it neces-
sary or useful to take issue with
newspaper articles as I now feel
compelled to do in this case of
the article published in The Tri-
bune's Business Section cap-
tioned "Court criticises devel-
oper over his vitriolic crusade,
on 24th July 2006. I should
therefore be grateful if you
would allow me space to
address certain issues concern-
ing it as they pertain to West
End Properties Limited
(WEPL) and Mr Orjan Lin-
droth.
Firstly, let me acknowledge
up front that I am recently
engaged to represent WEPL
and Mr Lindroth ("the clients")
both of whom were once repre-
sented in relation to matters the
subject of litigation to which the
article refers, by Messrs Colin
Callender and Michael Scott as
clients of the law firm of Cal-
lenders & Co.
My initial interest in reading
the article was spiked by its
prominence above the fold, but
that interest was hardly satis-
fied by the article's content
which hardly justified its publi-
cation as business news, even
by the suggestive use of the
word developer in the caption.
Indeed the article's purpose
appears to have been to feature
a decision of a Judge of the
Bahamas Supreme Court
(which I have read) that had
nothing to do with business as
such, although it had everything
to do with the Judge's finding of
certain deficiencies of pleadings
in the action which led him to
refuse the clients' application
to join Messrs Callender and
Scott and their firm; and, on the
other hand, to accede to an
application to strike out the
clients' claim similarly for insuf-
ficient particularity.
With that done, the matter
could (or should) have ended
with nothing more said. But as
the article discloses (and I sus-
pect this to be its real value to
those promoting its publication)
the Judge, as he is wont to from
time to time, made certain gra-
tuitous remarks about the
Clients' character and motive
which he unfortunately included
in his written ruling. Based on
personal experiences with this
particular judge, this is not at
all unlike remarks he has made
about the character and motives
of other litigants (and counsel)
who came before him and about
whom he was unguarded mak-
ing them, whether or not it was
meant to have an impact out-
side the court room.
In this case the Judge's
remarks were not only gratu-
itous and mischievous, to the
extent they were unnecessary
to the ruling he had to make,


Naming the airport


after Sir Lynden

EDITOR, The Tribune.

TODAY we will hear hours of political rhetoric as to what Sir
Lynden Pindling achieved for The Bahamas but I ask you are we
not insulting Sir Lynden by naming Nassau International Air-
port before the facility is upgraded to true International stan-
dards? Right now it is a total embarrassment to us all and we are
going to have to wait at least 'til 2010 before anything changes.
It seems the Airport Authority can't even buy a gallon of paint?
The irony of this naming will be that for many years to come
that facility will still be known as Nassau International or a'is ei
usually say in a conversation "that we are going to the'Airport."
Do the politicians really think we are suddenly going to
change that aged practice?
A lot of hype has been made that Sir Lynden was our first
Prime Minister, prior to his changing the title he would have had
the title Premier, but Pindling decided that that position would
now take the title: Prime Minister. So the first Premier of The
Bahamas was Sir Roland Symonette. What are we going to
name after him in his memory and what he gave to our country
or are we going to discriminate?
It is certainly sad that even after Sir Lynden was elected time
and time again that past supporters of the United Bahamian Par-
ty/UBP persuasion refuse to accept that through democratic
elections the PLP were elected and re-elected for a total of 25
years and under their watch we became an Independent sov-
ereign nation.
For me Nassau International Airport will still be "the Airport"
and I doubt whether Civil Aviation has obtained a change of
Nassau International Airport designation so that the truth of it
the buildings will be the Sir Lynden Pindling International but
nothing else....surely this is a storm in a tea-cup?

FIDEL Castro led tens of
thousands of Communist
Party faithful in celebrating
Cuba's Revolution Day on
Wednesday, telling them that
his revolution's social
achievements exceed any-
thing a US-backed replace-
ment could accomplish,
according to Associated
Press.
Returning to his roots, in
eastern Cuba, Castro also
praised Granma province,
named for the yacht that car-
ried him back to Cuba in
1956 to launch the battles
that led him to triumph three
years later.
"Granma (province) does-
n't need any Yankee transi-
tion plan to vaccinate and
teach our people to read and
write," Castro said.

TRINIDAD'S chief jus-

him were resolved, accord-
ing to a statement issued by
the embattled top judge,
according to Associated

In his statement, Chief Jus-
tice Satnarine Sharma shied
away from saying he would
wait for the charges to be dis-
missed, but said public con-
fidence would be under-
mined if he were to make
Rulings as long as there was a
"criminal charge against
him."
Authorities charged Shar-
ma on July 14 with trying to
-pressure a magistrate in a

day, who was sentenced to
two years in prison for failing
to declare a British bank
account he held while he led
Trinidad in the late 1990s.

Gray comes under fire for 'giving



out licences' on Harbour Island


* By Tribune Staff Writer

CABINET minister Alfred
Gray has been accused of "riding
roughshod" over Harbour Island
business interests by granting a
wide range of shop licences to a
US-owned resort company.
Furious Brilanders say the
minister brushed aside local
objections to give Valentines
Resort and Marina the right to
compete with them directly on
the retail front.
"It's a bit like a takeover,"
one shop owner said yester-
day, "The minister has
granted them shop licences
to sell virtually anything
they desire.
"This comes after a long
and drawn-out battle in
which both Valentines and
their Bahamian front were
turned down by the local coun-
cil. Both applications were
opposed by the community and
were subject to public hearings
and an appeals process. In each
instance, their applications were
denied."
Last Friday, however, Mr
Gray is said to have intervened
and granted Valentines licences

A business source said: "I
understand the minister has the
power to do this, but it has not
gone down well with many Bri-
landers. It means Valentines
will now be able to sell anything
they choose in direct competi-

tion with established local busi-
nesses."
Originally, the new resort and
marina was to have been
restricted to selling marine sup-
plies, logo merchandise and soft
drinks. Now it will sell gifts, arts
and crafts, liquor and other
goods.


"They have been given carte
blanche," said another business
source, "There is no doubt that
local shops and galleries will be
hard-hit."
Valentines has been at the
centre of controversy ever since
work started on their waterfront
condo development.
Residents have complained
that the project is "out of scale"
for Harbour Island, ruining the
special atmosphere of what has
often been termed "The Jewel
of the Bahamas".
Five condo buildings are
planned for the resort, with the
second nearing completion.
Two of the remaining three are
already under construction.
"It has changed the nature of
the place," a resident told The
Tribune.
"They don't have adequate
parking so there is a constant
congestion problem down there.
Even the prime minister has
been critical of the scale of the
place."
In light of the environmental
objections, businesses feel par-
ticularly aggrieved that Valen-
tines appears to have been giv-
en retail concessions as well.


Debate on new honours Bill continues


* By ROYANNE
FORBES-DARVILLE

PRIME Minister Perry
Christie described the contents
of the National Heroes and
National Honours Act as "the
single greatest cultural inter-
vention of the country."
The Bahamas has fallen
behind other countries, because
it has failed to produce an hon-
our system of its own, the prime
minster said.
"The goal is to develop a sys-
tem where Bahamian would
aspire to perform... And abol-
ish the Honours of the queen,"
Mr Christie said.
A similar act, the (National
Heroes and Honours Bill) was
tabled, in 2001 by the Free
National Movement adminis-
tration, six months before the
2002 general election.
The Cultural Commission has
made detailed recommenda-
tions for a National Honours
System to replace the present
British honours system. Guide-
lines regarding the renaming or
declaration of national holidays
were also made.
The new honours Bill, which
was read and seconded yester-
day in parliament, seeks to cre-
ate four societies of honours:
the Order of The Bahamas, the
Companion of the Order of The
Bahamas, the Order of Merit


and the Order of Distinction.
The Governor General would
have the power to formulate
regulations for the constitution
and oversee details of the seal
and motto of each of the
Orders. The Governor Gener-
al would also be responsible for
defining and preventing abus-
es (including the constitution of
offences) in the wearing of
insignia, regalia, medals and
badges issued in relation to any
honour.
Whitney Bastian, indepen-
dent Member of Parliament for
South Andros, called for ari
honours system that would be
"equal and open to all".
"There should be a review of
the honour system every five
years... to minimise compro-
mising the integrity of the sys-
tem. A sub-committee of exper-
tise should also be employed to
avoid allegations, favouritism
and nepotism in the system,"
Mr Bastian said during his con-
tribution to the debate in the
House of Assembly.
Mr Bastain said he would not
support the bill unless some
amendments are made. He also
pointed out that both bills
should be made one, as was
done by the FNM government.
Mr Christie said the govern-
ment's intention is to have a
national consultation on the
bills before they are passed. The


government also plans to seek
support from the private sec-
tor.
The National Heroes Act,
meanwhile, seeks to honour
Bahamians posthumously who
have displayed acts of valour
and bravery.
One aim should be to change
the emphasis, but the historical
fact of Christopher Columbus's
arrival in the Bahamas, the
prime minister said.
"The intent of the govern-
ment is to recognize the divi-
sion in this country," said Mr
Christie.
Among other things, recom-
mendations have been made, to
have Discovery Day (October
12) renamed as Landfall Day.

'A promising Bahamian...


* By ROYANNE
FORBES-DARVILLE
JUSTICE and prayers are the
only things family and friends
of 18-year-old Kenny Bethel say
they need.
As he lays comatose in the
Intensive Care Unit of Princess
Margaret Hospital, his mother
Joan Bethel told The Tribune
that doctors have given her son
a one percent chance to live.
Although the odds seem to
be against the young man, affec-
tionately called "Lil Ken", Mrs
Bethel said she is certain God
will work things out for the best.
Kenneth Bethel graduated
from C R Walker Senior High
School last year and recently
made his first major investment
- in a 1997 Acura that lacked
set-belts and standard factory
airbags.
The family fears that the lack
of this safety equipment led to
Kenny being subjected to the
full impact of the accident that
has left him in a coma.
The accident reportedly took
place early Sunday morning on
Mackey street, near the Salva-
tion Army. Police are still inves-
tigating the matter.
Describing her son as loving,
kind, warm hearted gentleman,
Mrs Bethel said the last time
she saw him was around 10pm
on Saturday.
She explained the sequence of
events that led up to the last con-
versation she had with Kenny.
"We left for work that Satur-
day morning we had to be to
work for nine because we both

dropped him to work then I
came to work.
"During the day we don't see
each other like that, but nor-
mally when we get off we would
come out together," Mrs Bethel
explained
"But he wasn't waiting for us
when we got off, so my daughter
called him on the cell and he
said that he was fine with a ride."


Recalling minor details of the
last encounter between herself
and Kenny, Mrs Bethel said he
was his usual self, compliment-
ing her and encouraging her to
enjoy life.
"I asked (Kenny) to baby-sit
for me because we were going
back out the first time in over
four years but he said, 'I am
sorry mummy I have previous
engagements.' I left the house


shortly after that, he was in the
tub.
"I returned home about three
minutes after 11 and he was
already gone and I haven't spo-
ken to him since."
When The Tribune arrived at
the home on Kenilworth Street
off Montrose Avenue, where
Kenny lived with his grand-
mother, four of his uncles sat
under huge almond trees, where

explained that the car was
indeed without an airbag, but
said that other factors may have
led to the life threatening injuries
Mr Bethel received.
"We can speculate that if the
airbag was one that was factory
made there's a chance the
injuries would have been far
less," he said
"I believe there is some evi-

of glue around the edge of the
steering wheel where.the bag is
supposed to be."
According to Mr Wright, the
purchasing and use of derelict
vehicles is a problem he has
complained about on numerous
occasions.
"I've talked about people
selling used vehicles where
some of the frames are only
welded together with clothes
hangers." he said.
"When you put together, a
chasis there is special welding
that has to be done by electrical


machines and these people use
clothes hangers for the welding
rod.
"I remember that one gov-
ernment official had promised
to look into that matter and
stop .the importation of that
type of vehicle."
Mr Wright said that a number
of these vehicles, which were
wrecked in the US or Japan,
were wrecked with such force
that it caused the airbag to
deploy.
"I'm sure that there are other
vehicles and it's only a matter of
time until a similar thing hap-


pens," he said.
Mr Miller, who is sitting in
for Minister of Trade and
Industry Alfred Gray, said,
"This is the sort of thing I was
trying to prevent from happen-
ing I'm very sad to hear that"
when he heard of Mr Bethel's
condition.
"The fellow who sold the car
probably didn't have two dimes
to rub together, so he could care
less what happened."
Mr Miller told The Tribune
yesterday that he has been try-
ing to prevent the importation
of derelict vehicles for the past
two years.
"This is a prime example of
some of the things we've been
talking about newspaper in
the airbags how low can you
get?" he asked.
"I guess you need to get a
couple of Bahamians killed in
those things before people vw~ i,

Wendall Clark, Kenny's uncle
said; "I feel p**:"'*d off, totally

"People don't know the his-

another "emotional blow."

tion of wrecks, because those
cars are not street worthy in the
United States or anywhere else,
and:theBahamas is the last
dumping ground for them.
"It's a very dangerous situa-
tion happening in this country
and I think it's a situation that
needs to be dealt with sooner
than later.
Speaking with The Tribune
yesterday Accounts Executive
and Motor Engineer at Security
and General Insurance Com-
pany Quintin Ferguson, said
that most cars that come in to
be insured do not have airbags
and that at least 50 per cent that
have airbags do not have ones
that are in working order.
He also explained that some
cars don't come with airbags,


* THIS outside shot shows the devastating effect that the crash
had on Ken's car


tributions to this country... mere-
ly hanging on to his life. He is a
quiet young man trying to get
ahead, this is his first investment
and maybe another year he
would have made a next step."
He explained that his nephew
has always been a driven indi-
vidual.
"When he was a young boy,
he worked at Dominos Pizza,
his father had died and he saved
up every penny he had, because
he didn't want anyone to sus-
tain him," Mr Bethel said. "He
purchased all the essential
things he needed to survive."
Christopher Barr, Kenny's
Supervisor at Multi-Discount
Warehouse said that govern-
ment needs to crackdown on
the number of wrecked vehicles
imported to the country.
"It is the government's
responsibility ii the US does
not allow people after a degree


of collision and damage to pur-
chase a car then our govern-
ment should not allow persons
to bring (damaged) cars in to
fix and sell to the public at a
profit to them," Mr Barr said.
"Wrecked vehicles should not
be on the road and rather not
even allowed to enter the coun-
try. This is something they have
to face, because it is in the best
interest of the public."
According to Mr Barr, Kenny
was an exceptional worker, very
respectful and had a good char-
acter.
"I was really impressed with
his performance. We recently
gave him a raise and he was due
another one in a short time.
"He had been a terrific asset
so far... it is just unfortunate
what happened."
The staff at Multi-Discount
Warehouse said they are hoping
for the best.


hazard' car


but the ones that do are not
required to have them in work-
ing condition in order to be
licensed.
"I'm not sure if Road Traffic
Inspectors know what to look
for they don't inspect
airbags," he said. "Another
problem with airbags is that
there aren't a lot of people here
who can fix them properly."
Mr Ferguson expressed his
concern for the driving public
saying that once the insurance
company says yes, Road Traffic
will say yes. "It's a disservice to
the driver."
He said that Road Traffic
needs to look into updating its
laws and modernizing its train-
ing. However, he said, the prob-
lem also starts with the client
not knowing what they've pur-
chased from the auction.
"I've seen two different cars
welded together.
"I had to look underneath to
truly tell if it had been welded
together had that car been t-
boned it could have split in two.
"Some insurance companies
do favours, but what they really


do is a disservice that makes
customers more susceptible to
injuries or even death.
"Road safety should have a
lot to do with an insurance com-
pany's level of inspection, but I
hope the government puts
together a more detailed inspec-
tion plan.
Mr Ferguson said that some
insurance companies are now
saying "no" to cars that look
like they could be a hazard to
the driver.
According to Mr wright
women are being robbed more
often than men when it comes
to buying these shoddy vehicles.
"People need to get some
kind of history on these vehi-
cles, but mechanics and people
who are importing them and
selling them are not gonna go
through that," he said.
Wanting individuals to err on
the side of caution he added
that "people who drive with
kids in their laps also need to
know that if the airbag explodes
the child will die, because of the
force with which an airbag
deploys."

"I can't think ]! n\lthnhine hL.h

would %\ant to hold oui and up
Queen Victona as a hero tor me,'
Mr Smith during his contribution
to the debate on the National
Honours Act and the National
Heroes Act.
The Tribune combed the streets
yesterday to ask Bahamians if
they think the statue of Queen
Victoria should be replaced by
the likeness of former prime min-
ister Sir Lynden Pindling.
Bernadette Davis said: "With
the queen there, it's history.
Although he has done a lot for
the country, her statue is a part
of our history."
Davis added that the Queen
Victoria statue has always been a
tourist attraction, and moving it
may effect the tourism industry.
"Its a monument and a tourist
attraction, why would anyone
want to move it?" she asked.
"They should give (Sir Lynden)
his own spot" said E Ferguson
"All of that is history, we need to
leave something for the younger
generation. What about putting
it next to Sir Milo Butler? They
should make that the spot for all
new statues of national heroes.
Or even at the entrance of the air-
port, seeing that they have already
named it after him."
"I don't really think the British
may feel good about that" said
Felecia Darville. "Although we
are an independent nation, that's
still sending a message which may
be misread."

THE TRIBUNE


ZNS and the unquestioning


worship of our politicians


* By PACO NUNEZ
Tribune News Editor

LAST week, Tribune chief
reporter Rupert Missick Jr used
this space to argue that Bahami-
ans have too much deference
for authority, and have trans-
ferred "fearful reverence of a
white, foreign, colonial master
to a black power elite who rely
on the same tools as our for-
mer masters to keep us docile
and submissive."
Over time, professionals and
politicians from across the polit-
ical spectrum have closed ranks
on the common Bahamian and
tacitly declared themselves to
constitute a privileged class.
The Bahamas is not a special
case. According to Palestinian-
American scholar Edward Said,
following independence from
Europe many nationalist elites
around the world simply
dropped "into the narrative pat-
tern of Europeans, hoping to
become mimic men... mere
native correspondences of their
imperial masters."
Yet as a parliamentary
democracy, the Bahamas is also
part of a tradition of liberalism
founded on an inherent distrust
of those who seek power and
influence, and which views pub-
lic servants as just that ser-
vants of the people.
Many factors have con-
tributed to the present situa-
tion. Significant among them is
the legacy of media control and
manipulation by successive gov-
ernments.
The Bahamas Broadcasting
Corporation has arguably done
more to perpetuate the culture
of hero worship in the Bahamas
than the actions of any single
politician or party.
The media is supposed to be
a crucial counterweight to pow-
er. Yet the entity which is the
most visible example of the dis-
cipline for most Bahamians is
little more than a deferential
propaganda tool; a lapdog of
Those in power.
The corporation's deputy
general manager, Carlton Smith
recognized as much, and said in
September 2005 that ZNS can-
not act in the best interest of


OPINION


the public as long as it is gov-
ernment-operated.
As in all effective propaganda
exercises, the terms of reference
set the tone: officials are not
simply the public servant that
has this or that responsibility,
but rather "the Honourable" or

Over time,
professionals and
politicians from
across the political
spectrum have
closed ranks on
the common
Bahamian and
tacitly declared
themselves to
constitute a
privileged class.


"His Excellency".
An air of unapproachability is
thus woven around the politi-
cian, who commands an imme-
diate, unquestioning respect -
in some cases bordering on idol-
atry.
This, along with the selective
bias of coverage, the pro-gov-
ernment slant (whichever party
is in power), and the reluctance
of ZNS to cover certain stories
has done a great deal to condi-
tion a particular response to
those in authority over time.
ZNS engenders a view of
journalism that bears no rela-
tion to the watchdog role it is
supposed to fulfill and has led to
the belief that journalists should
be aiding the government in the
"nation-building" process.
It has perpetuated the myth
that the role of the media is to
cover interminable honours cer-
emonies, pompous awards 'lun-


cheons' and other opportuni-
ties for self-congratulatory pos-
turing by politicians rather
than constant, rigorous criticism.
Clever politicians are well
aware of how effective this can
be and are quick to answer any
deviations from ZNS-style jour-
nalism.
In a letter to the Editor earli-
er this month, a public servant
criticised The Tribune for per-
petrating assaults on "our
national image" by failing to
accord due respect to the office
of the Prime Minister.
To this person, a lack of
respect for those who govern is
equivalent to disrespecting the
people of the Bahamas and the
nation itself. In other words,
politicians and the offices they
occupy are both the root and
the measure of our national sta-
bility and self-respect and news-
papers have a patriotic duty to
reflect this.
This sentiment runs directly
counter to the political tradi-
tion which the modern
Bahamas has inherited. This
tradition holds that politicians
should be seen as nothing more
than the trustees of power, and
that its rightful owners are the
people. Neither the political
office or the one who occupies it
are sacred. It is the obligation of
real journalists to accord each
politician exactly the amount of
respect he or she has earned -
no more, no less.
While the Broadcasting Cor-
poration's monopoly has been
broken, old habits of media con-
sumption die hard, and decades
of damage have already been
done.
Bahamians must realise how
dangerous our culture of hero-
worship is; it cripples our critical
faculties, encourages us to turn
a blind eye to outrageous dou-
ble standards and allows our
elected leaders to mistake them-
selves for our born betters.

Black Krab's change of Lifestyle


A BAHAMIAN promotions
company is set to catapult into
the mainstream by becoming the
local distributor of an interna-
tional publication.
Black Krab Entertainment,
which started as a record label,
is now one of the most successful
entertainment businesses in the
Bahamas planning boat cruises,
parties, and concerts.
Now, the company is about to
become the official distributor of
Lifestyles Magazine, an urban
publication based in the United
States and distributed in Cana-
da, the UK and the Caribbean.
Black Krab producer Lamont
Neymour recalls the history of
how the company began in 1999.
"Black Krab was an idea that
originated with my brother Cedric


Neymour, a recording artist who is
presently incarcerated. We record-
ed a number of artists, including
ourselves and had boat cruises and
other minor promotions."
The company continued to
enjoy success and then Alexan-
der Blaze, an executive with
Lifestyles Magazine came along.
According to Mr Neymore,
Blaze wanted to pursue the
Bahamian market and needed a
connection that could help him
accomplish that.
"It is an urban magazine that
covers the latest news in R & B,
hip hop and reggae music," said
Godfrey Thompson public rela-
tions agent for the entertainment
company.
Bryan Moore, a key partner in
Black Crab, said that he is excited

tory of our island chain for
many years to come.
Since the boom of the drug
trade, the Bahamas slithered
from a quiet society where peo-
ple could sleep with their doors
open, to a crime-riddled, mate-
rialistic society where brotherly
love has almost disappeared
only to be replaced by greed
and the preoccupation that "we
must outdo the Joneses".
Geographically, during the
drug explosion of the
1970s/1980s, the Bahamas
became the paramount staging
point for the traffic of narcotic
drugs and psychotropic sub-
stances, due to its situation
between the US (demand) and
South American drug produc-
ers. Islands such as the Exumas,
the Berry Islands, Bimini, Aba-
co, Long Island, Grand
Bahama, Inagua, San Salvador
and Eleuthera soon lost their
exotic glaze, becoming shadowy
offshoots as rapacious natives
were besieged by their zeal for
quick riches.
The 1970s/1980s were the pin-
nacle of the drug trade as cocaine
and marijuana were routinely
smuggled through the Bahamas,
with unsupervised airfields or
go-fast boats (yachts/freighters)
being used with the knowledge
and co-operation of high ranking
Bahamians.
According to the report of
the 1984 Commission of
Inquiry, serious drug traffick-
ing began to afflict the Bahamas
in 1968. In October, 1984,
almost the entire Pindling Cab-
inet was drawn up in scandal,
and while Pindling and several
others were exonerated, there
were those that were found
guilty of misconduct.
However, there were and still
are questions surrounding Pin-
dling's spending of eight times
his official salary, which he
claimed resulted from the gen-
erosity of Everett Bannister, a
business associate.
In disgust, present Governor
General Arthur Hanna, PM
Perry Christie, Sir Clement
Maynard and former PM
Hubert Ingraham all resigned.
These resignations should have
reverberated throughout
Bahamian politics and led to a
revitalisation of society, but this
was not to happen, as the trade


G IBSO 0N


and unfortunate use of dope by
Bahamians persisted.
Today, catchy slogans, songs
and Bay Street are all used to
promote the Bahamas as a per-
petual and ideal tourist paradise.
However, these efforts are all
to create a facade for tourists, as
for many Bahamians the rem-
nants of the height of drug-traf-
ficking are still apparent, with
the high occurrences of crime,
the eyesore of strung-out
vagabonds patrolling the streets
and peddling for a "dollar" to
most likely purchase drugs, and
many Bahamians' fervent obses-
sion with vanity.

Throughout the years,
drugs coupled with
alcohol have led to a societal
meltdown, with crime, suicides,
marital breakdowns, domestic
violence, absenteeism and
unwarranted accidents all the
result of their use.
I can remember listening to
the story about a joneser on Vil-
lage Road and hearing how he
was formerly a pilot, married
with children and living in a nice
home. And then, drugs got a
hold of him, relegating him to a
wandering social misfit with no
profession, no wife, no home
and mortified children! Here, a
formerly thriving man became
an utter slob.
Recent news stories of chil-
dren as young as 10 purchasing
and becoming addicted to alco-
hol must not be taken flippant-
ly. These incidents are patent
indications that a new genera-
tion of substance abusers is on
the horizon, who are willingly
sacrificing books and brain cells,
and the future of our country,
for a speedy high.
The law must be enforced
and it must be established that
bartenders should request the
IDs of patrons, thereby refus-
ing to sell alcohol to anyone
younger than 18. The discovery
of any alcoholic depot not com-
plying should face stiff penal-
ties.
Also, the recent discoveries
of large spreads of marijuana
fields throughout the islands and
million dollar caches of drugs
at homes suggest that the local
drug trade may be experienc-
ing a resurgence.
This must be quickly stamped
out. As Bahamians, we must be
cognisant that patriots do not
shred the social fabric of their
country for a few bucks!

EXTRACT EIGHT
I Was a Stranger and They Took Me In
(Doctuh Cottman decides to go to Andros o) e.\pand
his practice. He intends to cover the island by spend-
ing eight weeks there. He begins in Mangrove Ca\r.

Bright and early I was ready for work, and
there was the usual crowd in the yard. 1
opened the door and the first one who entered \\as
a small, bandy-legged man with a sullen face and
distinct odour of rum. "You is de Crown doctor?"
he asked. "You does give free medicine?"
I told him no, I was a private doctor and had to
furnish my own drugs.
"I think you de Crown doctuh. I think you not
tellin' de trut'"
I repeated I was not the Crown doctor, and
asked if he wanted to see me anyway.
"You does draw teet'?" he asked.
"Yes."
"Whatya chyahge?"
"Four shillings, usually."
He looked outraged. "Cyan't manage dot.
Doctuh. One shilling."
I think it was the odour of the rum along
with his general attitude: if a man could drink
rum and get surly that early in the morning.
he could afford four shillings to have a tooth
pulled...I turned him out and called, "Next."
All morning the patients filed in and back
out again after a conversation that sounded
as if it had been recorded' ahead of time:
"You is de Crown doctuh? You does give
free medicine? You does draw teet'? Four '
Shillings! Oh doctuh, can't manage dot." ..
Almost all left without being examined.
And so it went on all the second day.
The third morning there was no crowd
in the yard. There was nobody at all...
No patients came until Thursday, my
last day. I awoke to a knocking on my
door at sunrise. There must have been
twenty persons in the yard and more
coming between the coconut palms.
Now there were no questions about
me being the Crown doctor. Nor, from
their attitude, was there any indication
that practically all of them had been
here before seeking free service. I worked steadi-
ly until midnight and quit then because of sheer
exhaustion.
My next stop was the settlement of Long Bay Cays
where there was an added twist to the ritual. At the
local store I asked the price of sugar. "One and six,"
the woman said.
That was at least double the normal price and I
said so. She nodded agreeably. "You a white man.
We charges you more."
"You can charge it," I said. "You won't collect it."
Across the street from the store was a house with a
grapefruit tree in the yard. The owner was nearby, at
her washtub. "Mawnin' ma'am," I said, "You does sell
dis fruit?"
"Oh yes, suh."
"How much it is?"
"I charges de peoples here truppence. But you is de
doctuh. You got plenty money, so I is charging' you a
shilling."
Well at least she was honest but I decided to tell the
constable of my experience.
"My," he said, "The peoples is doin' you bad. You

just
leave this to me."
A few minutes later he was back
in my room carrying a.pound of sugar and tour
grapefruit. "I make the peoples think I was buying
these for myself," he said with a huge grin. "So I
only have to pay one shilling for the sugar and six-
pence apiece for the fruit."
I knew, of course, he had bought them for half that.
But at least it was a compromise. sb 1 thanked him
and paid.
From Long Bay Cays I walked to the settlement of
High Rock and found considerable work. The cate-
chist of the local Catholic church allowed me to use
the church office and at noon he came and said,
"Now, doctuh, I want you should come to dinner
with me. You have worked hard all morning; you
have done much good for these poor peoples. I have
prepared a nice dinner for you and [ hope you will
enjoy it."
I was delighted and happy to find a cordial person
after all my troubles of the past three weeks. I was a


stranger and you took me in, I thought.
The catechist's dinner consisted
only of a plate of
peas and
rice, but it
was sweet-
ened with
kind words.
He was effu-
sive in his
praise and was
8 sure that God
had sent me
there to carry
out His will.
Then the meal
%%as finished.
The catechist
pushed away his
own plate and
leaned back in his
chair. "Now doc-
S' :. ,.. tuh," he said,
"About the dinner.
Ahem. About the
dinner. What you
say about one
0 pound for the din-
ner?"
SI could only gape
4" at him. I thought I
had been invited to
dinner.
"Well, doctuh, if you
think that too high,
how about sixteen
I hadn't cleared that
much in the previous
week at Long Bay, Cays.
I told him so.
"All right, doctuh." His
entire attitude was that he
desperately wanted to do
1 the right thing. He wanted
n to please. "I goin' to make
-., y this iust as reasonable as I
could. So I only goin' to
charge you twelve
shillings."
By this time I had caught
mN breath. "Look here," I
,_ said. "I thought you had
,:i,. 'e'. invited me to dinner. In Nas-
sau I could go to a good
restaurant, order a full dinner,
and not pay more than six
shillings."
.- The honeyed words and the
"NrI '^ reasonable attitude departed
from the carechist. His lips
* curled in anger. "All right!" he
shouted. "All right!" He brought
his fist down on the table with an
oath. "Six shillings! But you something cheap."
I paid him and walked out of the house. I was a
stranger, I thought, and he took me in. He really
took me in.

Cay.
Lawyers also sought a stay
of the Appeal Court decision
and reinstatement of an
undertaking by the develop-
Sers to halt work until the
Supreme Court gave its judg-
ment on the substantive
issues.
The developers were
released from their earlier
undertaking so long as Jus-
tice Carroll of the Supreme
Court at Freeport had not
given his ruling by May 31,
2006.
In June, the developers
began work again, clearing
forests, burning trees and -
according to the association -
dredging beaches and man-
groves as well as destroying
the marine and physical envi-
ronment.
Last night, an association
statement said: "The associ-
ation had opposed the


motion in the Court of
Appeal by Baker's Bay to be
released from their under-
taking on the ground that it
was causing irreparable dam-
age to the environment."
On Tuesday this week, it
applied for special leave to
appeal to the Privy Council.
Subsequently, association
solicitor Theo Solley and
counsel Ruth Jordon were
able to get an urgent hear-
ing.
Attorney Fred Smith said:
"This appeal before the Privy
Council comes in a long line
of continuing applications
being mounted by the peo-
ple of Guana Cay through
their association to protect
and preserve their rights and
the environment.
"The people of Guana Cay
remain serious, committed
and determined to fight for
their rights and they anx-
iously await the decision of
Justice Carroll on the merits
of the judicial review appli-
cation."

One family showed The Tribune a copy of a letter from Chief
Medical Officer Marceline Dahl-Regis in reference to a deceased
relative, in which it is admitted that the death was not reported by
a certain healthcare facility.
Under the Act, this is a punishable offence and that facility's
licence could have been denied yet, according to the family
member, no action has been taken.
However, Mr Gomez claimed that all deaths at private institu-
tions have been reported to the board since its inception.
In addition, when The Tribune spoke to Mr Gomez earlier this
week, he confirmed that since its inception, the board has never
denied any facility a licence renewal.
There was also some confusion under what circumstances the
board would launch an investigation.
Under the Act, the board must investigate "any matter affecting
management, diagnosis or treatment of a person within a hospital
or health care facility".
Mr Gomez said the board's investigations must be "spurred by
the public".
The public, he said, needed to bring the board's attention to
what they think may have happened to a relative during the course
of care at a healthcare facility.
However, when Mr Gomez was asked how often the board gets
reports of suspicious deaths or investigates them, he said "not
often at all" adding that the board currently has no working def-
inition of "suspicious death".
"We are looking at amendments to the Act at this time, we will
examine that clause and in particular we will be defining a suspicious
death," Mr Gomez said.

FROM page one Testimony


defence attorney Romona Far-
quharson who represents
accused murderer Cordell Far-
rington.
Mr Floyd screamed in court
yesterday that Farrington had
threatened to kill his family
and friends and that he was still
in fear of the accused. He said
that it was because of this, he
did not report what he knew
of Robins' death to police.
During his testimony yes-
terday, Mr Floyd recalled that
after 3 pm on the day that
Robins was killed, he travelled
with the accused to Queens
Cove. There, he said, Farring-
ton took the bloodied mattress,
sheets and towels out of the
back trunk of his car and dis-
posed of them near a canal.
Upon returning to Mallory
Lane, Farrington continued
cleaning up the blood that had
been left behind, he said. Floyd
told the court that around 5 pm
that day, he packed a bag of
his belongings and snuck out
of the apartment while the
accused, was still sleeping on
the floor of his room. Mr Floyd
told the court that he went to
his mother's house which was
not too far away. However his
mother was not at home.Mr
Floyd told the court that he
went to the backyard where he
cried and prayed. Farrington
came by the house some 20
minutes later, he told the court.
Mr Floyd recalled that he
had heard a car horn and think-
ing it was his mother returning
home, ran to the front of the
yard only to discover that it
was Farrington. Mr Floyd told
the court that.Farrington asked
him, "Terry, what the hell you
doing here? You know you
don't live here, these people
don't want you." Tearfully Mr
Floyd told the court that he
was forced to go back to Mal-
lory Lane. He told the court
that he stayed at the apartment
for three days. He said that
during that time he and the
accused never discussed
Robins' death. Mr Floyd said
he had no telephone to use and
that Farrington had stopped
him numerous times from leav-
ing the apartment. Farrington's
lawyer suggested to the young
man, however, that he was
lying. Ms Farquharson further
suggested that Mr Floyd had
S never told police that Farring-
Ston had used a weapon to keep
" :;':.'.. him from leaving and that at
any time he could have walked


out and left. Mr Floyd denied
that this was so.
Mr Floyd admitted during
cross-examination, that
although Cordell and Jamaal
were "close" he never heard
Farrington tell Jamaal that he
loved him. He also denied that
during the argument that Far-
rington and Robins had the
night Robins was killed,
Cordell told Jamaal not to
leave him. Mr Floyd denied
that there was a sexual rela-
tionship between Jamaal and
Cordell, claiming that the
accused merely told him that
he and Jamaal were friends.
During cross-examination Mr
Floyd also admitted that he did
not see who killed Jamaal
Robins but had heard Farring-
ton admit to the murder and
also saw the victim's lifeless
body. Mr Floyd who appeared
to become very hostile during
cross-examination, admitted
that he had told police that
Jamaal was killed in mid-July
of 2002. He said he remem-
bered that it was during that
period because it was around
the time of his birthday which
was July 15. Ms Farquharson
suggested that Mr Floyd's rec-
ollection of events was vague
and quite general. However the
witness was adamant as he
screamed that he was being
specific because he was
"there". Ms Farquharson also
suggested to the witness that
he never gave police a descrip-
tion of Farrington's vehicle and
its licence plate number. Mr
Floyd stated that he did. He
admitted that he had told
police that he thought Far-
rington was "crazy". He said
that he made this assumption
because after Robins' death,
Farrington would keep saying,
"Terry, Terry, Terry," with a
wicked smile on his face.
Mark Anthony, a manager
at Kellys Freeport, and anoth-
er former employer of the
accused, told the court that
Farrington had been a good
employee during his tenure
with the company. Mr Antho-
ny, who manages Kelly's ware-
house, told the court that Far-
rington had been an excellent
employee during the four
months that he was employed
at the business and was
able to get the job done with-
out having to be told what to
do.


He added: "The people of
Guana Cay vow to continue
the fight. They are dancing
and celebrating in the
streets."
Protesters began mobilis-
ing after heads of agreement
in the Baker's Bay scheme
became known last year.
The association was
formed to represent the
interests of landowners, busi-
nesses and others affected
by the proposed develop-
ment.
While the government took
the view that the develop-
ment would help the
economies of Abaco and the
Bahamas, the association
argued that would have "no
positive impact" for Guana
Cay itself.
On the contrary, wetlands,
mangroves, bonefish flats and
other natural environment
would suffer, they said. The
association, in seeking a judi-
cial review, argued that the
heads of agreement were null
and void.

Murdered tourists 'were

on a dream vacation'


FROM page one
It is alleged that during the
early morning of July 23, the
accused went uninvited into the
couple's room armed with a
shotgun to rob them.
After robbing them, he
allegedly had sexual intercourse
with Ms von Perfall. After the
alleged robbery and rape, Fran-
cis is accused of shooting both
victims.
Justice Stephen Isaacs is pre-
siding over the murder case. A
jury of six men and women is
hearing evidence.
Lawyer Carlson Shurland
represents Francis. Ms Gardiner
of the Attorney General's
Office appears for the Crown.
Detective Corporal 2509
Stephen Rolle, who travelled to
Bimini following the murders,
was the first witness called by
the prosecution.
Corporal Rolle, attached to
the Criminal Records Office in
Freeport, told the court that he
arrived at Bimini around 3pm
on July 23, 2005.
After receiving certain infor-
mation from Inspector Bain, he
went to the Anchorage Hotel,
where he saw two lifeless bodies
in Room Six. He took pho-
tographs of the scene.
Two days later, he went to
the home bf Frederick Francis
in Porgy Bay, where he
observed suspected bloodstains
on a grey and black Nike tennis
shoe.
He said Francis was taken
on July 26 to the clinic, where
he was given a sexual kit exam-
ination by the doctor. Blood
samples were also taken.
That same day, while at
Francis' residence, Corporal
Rolle said a black 12-gauge
shotgun, with serial number
MB03054F, and a shotgun shell
were discovered and collected.
A pair of blue pants and a white
T-shirt were also collected.


Also found, he said, was a
green bag, which contained a
brown wallet with ticket stubs in
the name of Bernhard Bolzano,
and a photograph of Ms von
Perfall.
An electronic headpiece, a
$20 bill, a camera, Euro coins
and pennies from the Cayman
Islands, and receipts from
restaurants were also found.
The items were put in evi-
dence by Prosecutor Gardiner.
Under cross-examination by
Carlson Shurland, Corporal
Rolle said he dusted the hotel
room for fingerprints and took
fingerprints from the accused.
Asked whether he had dust-
ed the shotgun for prints, Cpl
Rolle replied that Inspector
Innis had dusted it. He told Mr
Shurland that he did not dust
the shotgun shell or items found
with the green bag for finger-
prints.
Ernst Rumer, an honorary
consul for Austria, identified
the bodies of Barbara Felln von
Perfall and Bernard Bolzano on
August 2, 2005, at Princess Mar-
garet Hospital in New Provi-
dence.
In his capacity as consul, Mr
Rumer is recognized by the
Bahamas Foreign Affairs Min-
istry as an official representa-
tive for all Austrians, wherever
they are in the Bahamas.
According to Mr Rumer, he
was shown two Austrian pass-
ports, one of Ms von Perfall,
who carried the title of a
duchess, and Mr Bolzano. He
testified that the two red-
coloured passports were
authentic Austrian-European
passports.
On August 3, an autopsy was
performed on both victims at
Rand Lab at Princess Margaret
Hospital by Dr Raju.
Detective Sergeant Marvin
Cargill, a scenes of crime officer
in Nassau, was present for the
autopsy performed on Ms von


Perfall, and Det Corporal James
Colebrook was present at Mr
Bolzano's autopsy.
They took photographs and
collected various samples.
Detective .Sergeant Cargill
observed a wound to the head,
and to the abdomen and back
of the dead woman.
He collected a projectile,
urine, blood and stomach con-
tent samples. A sexual assault
kit was also taken from the vic-
tim, containing fingernail scrap-
ing, pubic hair combings, pulled
pubic hair, vaginal, rectal and
oral swabs and smears, and sali-
va for police forensic analysis.
Detective Corporal Cole-
brooke observed clothing tied
around Mr Bolzano's neck and
hands. He collected blood,
urine, stomach content samples
and a projectile that was taken
from the deceased for police
forensic analysis.
The trial continues today.


Man charged

FROM page one
The accused, who appeared
before Chief Magistrate Roger
Golnez, was not required to
enter a plea. He was remanded
to Her Majesty's Prison until
September 6 for a preliminary
inquiry.
The former police officer was
reportedly shot while sitting in
his vehicle outside his Pinewood
Gardens home.
Scott was also charged with
the murder of Daniel Reckley.
It was reported that Mr Reckley
died after being hit over the
head.
'Court records alleged that
Wells, on July 21, intentionally
caused Mr Reckley's death.
He was again not required
to enter a plea, and will reap.-
pear in court on August 28.

AES and privatization


can

* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
T he potential
"windfall" from
approving the
AES liquefied
natural gas
(LNG) project and privatising
the Bahamas Telecommunica-
tions Company (BTC) could
"pretty much eliminate" the
projected $125 million GFS fis-
cal deficit if both events hap-
pened this year, the minister of
state for finance told The Tri-
bune yesterday.
James Smith said that hypo-
thetically, if both projects were
accomplished and the proceeds
applied to the fiscal deficit,
"other things being equal" and
the "best case" scenario
achieved, with no unplanned
spending demands incurred,
they could cancel out the 2006-


deficit


2007 deficit, projected at about
1.9 per cent of gross domestic
product (GDP).
The Government is in talks
with bidder Bluewater Com-
munications Holdings on BTC's
privatization, the latter having
made an offer for the state-
owned incumbent operator.
Although parameters and pro-
cedures for talks are still being
worked out, selling a 49 per
cent stake in BTC to a strategic
partner as envisaged by the
failed 2003 privatization process
- could fetch at least $100 mil-
lion or more.
This is based on the $130 mil-
lion that 2003 preferred bidder,
BahamaTel, had been prepared
to pay for a stake that size, plus
management control. It is like-
ly, though, that BTC's value
may have diminished somewhat
since then due to increased
legal and unlicensed competi-

New Providence close

to new project 'cut-off'


* By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Business Reporter
ONCE three major developments on New Providence/Paradise
Island are completed, the Government has no plans to approve any
further investments on the island, the Minister of Financial Services
and Investments, Vincent Peet, confirmed yesterday.
Mr Peet told menibers of the Bain and Grants Town Tourism
Board that the Bahamas had reached a stage of development
where the economy was so strong that the Government can be
deliberate and selective about which foreign developments it
approves in future.
He noted that once Baha Mar's $2 billion Cable Beach redevel-
opment to the west, and the South Ocean Resort and Albany pro-
jects in the south, along with Phase III on Paradise Island, were
completed, the PLP government was unlikely to seek additional
investment or approve any other large-scale projects for, New
Providence.
Mr Peet said that while there was
not a specific cut-off point for invest- SEE page 5B



Over-the-Hill businesses

seek own Chamber group


* By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Business
Reporter
WITH the Bain and Grants
town community contributing
millions of dollars to the
Bahamian economy annually,
the Over-the-Hill Business
Association yesterday said it
was hoping to launch a chapter
of the Chamber of Commerce
that would specifically address
the area's needs.
Senator CB Moss, chairman
of the Bain and Grants Town
Tourism Board, the group dri-
ving the revitalisation and cre-
ation of a heritage tourism cen-
tre in the area, said yesterday
that the Association has been
in discussion with members of
the Bahamas Chamber of Com-
merce regarding this.
Senator Moss said the area,


which hosts a number of small
and medium-sized businesses,
had unique concerns and needs
that were often not met or
addressed by larger businesses.
Senator Moss told The Tri-
bune that combined, the area
was a major financial contribu-
tor, generating hundreds of mil-
lions of dollars when worker
salaries and the earnings of
businesses were considered.
He said it was difficult to
determine exactly what the
area's total financial contribu-
tion was, because records were
not often well-kept.
Still, Senator Moss said that if
developed properly and wisely,
Bain and Grants Town can be a
'gold mine' for heritage tourism,
given that tourists are eager to

tion, its main asset being its cel-
lular monopoly.
On the AES front, Aaron
Samson, project manager for
the' Ocean Express plant, told
Tribune Business last year that
the Government was guaran-
teed a $20 million revenue base
per annum once the. project is
approved. These revenues
would come from business
licence fees, plus a lease of
seabed off the man-made
island, situated near Bimini,
and would not need the regasi-
fication terminal and pipeline
to be constructed and in opera-
tional mode.
Apart from economic diver-
sification, the possibility of sci-
ence and technology jobs for
Bahamians, and assistance with
social and educational pro-
grammes, the main benefits
from approving the AES
Ocean Express project will


accrue to the Treasury.
Leslie Miller, minister of agri-
culture and fisheries, who has
responsibility for LNG, said the
AES project could generate $25
million in revenue in its first
year, this sum possibly rising as
high as $87 million per annum.
He indicated approval of the
project could be imminent.
Mr Samson had previously
told The Tribune that had the
plant been operating in 2005,
the Government would have
earned an extra $40-$50 million
in unbudgeted revenue that
could have been used to "sta-
bilise" other areas of the e'on-
omy.
Mr Samson said this revenue
would have been gained from
the LNG supplied by the pro-
ject being linked to the Henry

Guana Cay battle to affect


'billions' in investments


* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
OPPONENTS of the $175 million Baker's Bay
Golf and Ocean Club believe the outcome of
their court battle against the project is criticalto
how "billions of dollars of investments" in the
Bahamas are approved and treated.
In submissions to support the Save Guana Cay
Reef Association's (SGCR) petition for special
leave to appeal to the Privy Council, its attorney
Fred Smith said the issues raised by the legal
fight over the Baker's Bay project "affect the
lives of many communities throughout the
Bahamas where identical challenges have risen".
The association filed its petition on Tuesday,
July 25, and yesterday said the Privy Council had
granted an injunction or stay of the Bahamian
Court of Appeal's May 8, 2006, ruling that
allowed the developers, San Francisco-based Dis-
covery Land Company, to resume work on Gua-
na Cay.


Developers describe Association's
stay as 'stalling tactic', move to
overturn it

Mr Smith said the injunction followed the same
terms as the November 22, 2005, voluntary under-
taking given by 'the developers' attorneys, Gra-
ham Thompson and Co, that they would not do
any more work at Baker's Bay until the Supreme
Court delivered its verdict on the merits of the
association's case.
Yesterday's stay returns the issue to that posi-
tion for now until the Supreme Court gives its
verdict, or the association's Petition for Special
Leave is heard by the Privy Council, whichever is
earlier.

Marketing's importance





cannot be overlooked


MARKETING is one of the
most misunderstood business
concepts of all time, yet it is so
crucial to the success of your
business that, to overlook it


could be the biggest mistake
you can make as a business
owner. The business landscape
is littered with businesses that
had good products, but were


unable to get them into the
market place at the right price,
at the right time, to the right
customers through the right
sales channels.
Marketing is pervasive.
Everywhere we look, we are
being bombarded with mar-
keting messages from radio sta-
tions, billboards, magazines,
backs of buses, TV, our e-
mails, and our post. Yet, for
those budding entrepreneurs
that think marketing is only
about being besieged with
advertising throughout the day,
and maybe filling in the odd
survey, nothing could be fur-
ther from the truth.
Marketing is much more
than that. It is everything from
researching our needs, who we
are, where we come from and
our buying habits, to creating a
product or service that is like-
ly to meet that need, pricing it
correctly, getting it to us effec-
tively, and promoting the ben-
efits to us.
Some would also say that
marketing is about combining
that information and cleverly
creating a need that we did not
know we had. Did we really
need canned dog food, a swif-
fer or 60-inch plasma screen
TV, or cheese crumbles before
we knew about them? Do we
really need that drug for Adult
Attention Deficiency Disor-
der, a category so cleverly cre-
ated by a leading drugs com-
pany?
Marketing
As you can see, marketing
covers a broad area. If I were
pressed to define it, I would
say that marketing is all about
supporting the sales function -
in other words, getting more
people to buy more of your
product at the most advanta-
geous price to you.
Sales and marketing have


always been lumped together.
Yet, sales is part of marketing.
We have been told that every-
thing begins and ehds with a
sale. Without a sale, we have
no right to be in business.
However, it is also true to say
that if you haven't got your
marketing right, then your
sales team could be on a hiding
to nothing, selling an out-of-
date product that nobody
wants, to the wrong customers
through the wrong sales chan-
nel, at the wrong time and at
the wrong price with the wrong
promotional material.
Driving
If your marketing is not dri-
ving more customers to your
business, it has failed. So what
has traditionally been the remit
of marketing?
The accepted understanding
today is that marketing is
about the five Ps, Product,
Price, Promotion, Place and
Positioning, also known as the
marketing mix. While I have
found this definition useful, in
my future columns I break
down the 'five Ps' into smaller
chunks in order to bring more
clarity to the marketing func-
tion.
My first column will be
about Knowing Your Cus-
tomer, or by extension, your
market, where I discuss the
importance of understanding
who they are, where they come
from and what are their needs.
My second column will be
about Knowing Your Compe-
tition, where I discuss the
importance of research to help
you identify the important
issues you need to consider
before you take that key step
and start your business.
My third column will be
about Knowing Your Envi-
ronment, where I discuss how,
the failure to see the changes

of, or crippled many large busi-
nesses.
My fourth column will be
about Knowing Your Product
and, by extension, your service,
where I discuss the importance
of understanding what it is
exactly you are providing to
your market place.
My fifth column will be
about Knowing Your Price,
where I discuss the importance
of quantifying the value of
your product, or service, prop-
erly so that you are able to
make a profit.

to communicate the benefits
of your product, or service to
your market.

where I discuss the various dis-
tribution methods of bringing
your product to market.
My eighth column will be
about Knowing Your Image,
where I discuss the importance
of knowing which end of the

My ninth column will be

tioning,.,where I discussthe,

position your product so that it
is well received in the cus-
tomer's mind.
My 10th column will be
about the Sales Process and
what it takes to sell your prod-
uct, or service, effectively into
the market place.
My llth and 12th columns
will appeal to the more expe-
rienced marketers among you,
where I will discuss concepts
such as marketing strategies
and how to effectively manage
your brand.
Failure to grasp marketing
could spell disaster for your
business. Marketing is an
important area, and will
require a tremendous amount
of effort to get right. So, in
order to avoid the trap of
antipreneurship, make sure
you spend some time on this
area as it could pay large divi-
dends for your future business
success.

Former Bahamas




firm's owners




appeal verdict


TWO former owners of a
Bahamian company that act-
ed as investment adviser to a
$214 million mutual fund,
which collapsed amid allega-
tions it was "Florida's largest
Ponzi fraud", have appealed a
March 2006 judgement that
ordered them to pay $10.442
million in penalties plus post-
judgement interest.
Jon Knight and Anthony
Huggins, whose Bahamian-reg-
istered International Portfolio
Analytics (IPA) company pro-
vided investment management
services to Evergreen Security
were ordered to pay the fines
by Judge Arthur Briskman, sit-
ting in the US District Court
for the Middle District of Flori-
da.
Bill Cuthill, the Chapter 11
bankruptcy trustee who
brought the lawsuit against the
pair, said the court made two
judgements against them one
relating to a Bahamian Inter-
national Business Company
(IBC) they controlled, Matae-
ka Ltd, the other against IPA's
US affiliate, Atlantic Portfolio
Analytics Management
(APAM).
Mr Cuthill said: "The court
entered a judgement against Mr
Huggins, Mr Knight and their
company, Mataeka Ltd, for $7.9
million. The court also entered
a judgment against APAM for
$2.5 million.
"Bill Cuthill is working dili-
gently on collecting these judg-
ments. The defendants filed a
notice to appeal their judgments
in March 2006."
Mr Cuthill was seeking to
recover funds which he alleged


had been illegally transferred
to Mataeka and APAM.
The judge's damages award
was the latest bad news for
Huggins and Knight, who have
both reached separate settle-
ments with the Securities and
Exchange Commission (SEC),
the US capital markets regula-
tor, agreeing to be "barred
from association with any
investment adviser" as a result
of their Evergreen activities.
Although the duo neither
"admitted nor denied" the alle-
gations against them, the SEC
administrative proceedings
revealed that Knight and Hug-
gins were respectively
APAM's chief investment offi-
cer and president. Knight
owned a 49 per cent stake in
the firm.
Recorded
The SEC recorded how
Knight had bepn sentenced to
five years' probation and a
$50,000 fine after pleading
guilty during criminal pro-
ceedings, brought in Manhat-
tan. He pled guilty to charges
that he tried to "steal more
than $1 million from Ever-
green Trust", the Bahamian
trust that acted as the holding
vehicle for the mutual fund,
through Mataeka, the Bahami-
an IBC that he owned and con-
trolled with Huggins.
Similarly, in regard to the
same episode, Huggins
received three years' proba-
tion and a $50,000 fine after
pleading guilty to criminal pos-
session of stolen property, a
misdemeanor. That property


belonged to the Evergreen
Trust.
The proceedings against
both men said: "The Ever-
green Trust received invest-
ment management services
from APAM through another
entity owned by Huggins and
[Knight], called International
Portfolio Analytics (IPA), a
Bahamian corporation that
managed funds for offshore
clients.
"IPA was affiliated with
APAM through their common
ownership. Mataeka executed
a $6.5 million loan agreement
from the Evergreen Trust on
December 11, 1997. The crim-
inal charges....... related to this
loan agreement."
Mr Cuthill's separate lawsuit
against Huggins and Knight,
which resulted in the more
than $10 million award against
them, had alleged: "On or
about 11 December, 1997,
Evergreen transferred approx-
imately $6.5 million to or for
the benefit of Mataeka.......
- "At least $2.5 million of the'
$6.5 million were transferred
to or for the benefit of Knight
and Huggins. Knight and Hug-
gins then made a loan to
APAM in the amount of $2.5
million. At the time, Huggins
was a director and president
of APAM, and Knight was a
director and vice-president of
APAM."
The suit alleged that $5.1
million of the $6.5 million
Mataeka received from Ever-
green Security was transferred
to Surety Bank & Trust, a
Bahamian bank since liquidat-
ed.


The lawsuit alleges that on
or about December 18, 1997,
some $3.6 million of the
"Mataeka Transfer" was trans-
ferred to Surety Bank & Trust.
Another $1.5 million was then
allegedly deposited on or
about December 24, 1997.
The lawsuit alleges:
"Through a series of transac-
tions, the funds deposited in
Surety Bank were denoted as
follows: 1) a deposit account
in the name of Castro in the
amount of $1.5 million; 2) a
deposit account in the name of
Boyd in the amount of $1.8
million; and 3) a deposit
account in the name of
Thomas S. Spencer in the
amount of $1.8 million."

The developers have instruct-
ed their attorneys to immedi-
ately apply to have the injunc-
tion set aside.
"We view this latest tactic by
the SGCR as a stalling tactic.
Importantly, we believe that this
latest legal manoeuvre by Mr
Smith and SGCR will be quick-
ly addressed, and hopefully dis-
posed of, once our case and the
Government's case is presented
to the Privy Council."
In submissions supporting his
petition, Mr Smith said: "The
outcome of this matter ulti-
mately affects how dozens of
foreign developments in the
Bahamas (representing billions
of dollars of investments),
where the Government of the
Bahamas has entered into what
have come to be known as
Heads of Agreements, will be
conducted."
Mr Smith alleged that at
stake was whether the Govern-
ment and respondents to the
case Wendall Major, Cabinet
Secretary; The Treasurer and
Minister responsible for Crown
Lands would be "able to arbi-
trarily dictate what is to hap-
pen in the Family Islands" and
effectively bypass the local gov-


ernment approvals process and
"wishes of the local islanders",
avoiding accountability and
transparency.
The SGCR attorney added
that the case also raised the
issue of whether Family Island
communities would, through
the Local Government Act, be
allowed to decide themselves
whether to grant the relevant
licences and permits for devel-
opments in their area.
Currently, Mr Smith alleged
that the Government instead
was entering into "secret agree-
ments" with developers.
He added: "It concerns the
attempt by such communities
to preserve their culture, her-
itage and traditional way of life
in the face of foreign land spec-
ulation, which involves the cre-
ation of exclusive mega yacht,
residential and golfing hotels
and communities from which
the locals are effectively exclud-
ed."
The use of Crown and Trea-
sury land, which Mr Smith
alleged are supposed to be
"held in trust for the benefit of
Bahamian citizens", was anoth-
er issue raised by the Baker's
Bay case.

The Over-the-Hill Asso-
ciation has been working to
promote the area, and. to
encourage investment incen-
tives for business. It wants
to take a more active role in
the community and to be a
resource for persons inter-

the area.
The Association held a
business luncheon at which
Financial Services and
Investments Minister, Vin-

speaker.
Mr Peet said that at pre-

foreshadowed that the min-

a financial manager to over-

In outlining the options
for financing open to
Bahamians, Mr Peet
acknowledged that the
Bahamas Development
Bank had strayed away from
its intended purpose of pro-
viding start-up financing to
Bahamian entrepreneurs.
He said the bank needs to
become more relevant and
reduce the red tape. The
Government's $2 million
venture capital fund, Mr
Peet added, had taken off
like "wildfire", and his min-
istry was to launch a major
public relations campaign for
Bahamian investors.
Mr Peet said there is often
a myth that the Government
is more concerned about for-
eign investment by giving
more incentives to non-
Bahamians. However, he
said this was abs.oluelty
untrue, because Bahamians
receive more incentives than
the foreigner.


ment throughout the rest of the

planned to review the Interna-

He noted that the anchor

THE TRIBUNE


Harajchi ordered




to pay all costs


FROM page 1B



13 judgment, when it ruled it
was "inconceivable" that Suisse
Security "be allowed to contin-
ue as an operating bank", the
Privy Council delivered a ver-
dict on an application by the
Central Bank of the Bahamas
governor that Mr Harajchi
should bear the costs of that
appeal rather than the bank
itself.
The subsequent verdict
against Mr Harajchi was criti-
cal for Suisse Security's deposi-
tors and creditors, plus provi-
sional liquidator Raymond
Winder, because if it had gone
the other way, the.bank -
effectively meaning them -
would have had to pay at least
part of the costs.
This would have further exac-
erbated the "much loss" that
Suisse Security Bank's deposi-
tors and creditors have suffered,
due to several protracted court
cases and the five years that
have passed since its licence was
revoked in 2001.
Meanwhile, sources yester-
day told The Tribune that the
Central Bank of the Bahamas
had yet to obtain a date for a
Supreme Court hearing at
which it will petition the court
to fully wind-up Suisse Security
and appoint Mr Winder as full
liquidator, with accompanying
powers.
Mr Winder is still currently
only a provisional liquidator,
and this means his hands are
still somewhat tied in attempt-
ing to pursue the remaining
Suisse Security assets lying out-
side his reach.
The March 2006 Privy Coun-
cil judgment recorded the fail-
ures of Suisse Security's man-
agement and shareholders to
co-operate with Mr Winder,
senior partner at Deloitte &
Touche (Bahamas).
It noted that Suisse Security
directed clients to dep:os, tund,
not into the, bankitself, but two
affiliated International Business
Companies (IBCs), Suisse Secu-
rity Holdings and Suisse Secu-
rity Investments. These compa-
nies held accounts with the for-
mer Barclays Bank in Nassau,
and UBS in Geneva, Switzer-
land.
Mr Winder reported to the
Central Bank that in March
2001 after the licence suspen-
sion he controlled only $5.485
million of Suisse Security's cash,
and investment balances, com-
pared to $27.14 million shown
on the bank's 2000 fourth quar-
ter report, and January 31, 2001,
position.


The missing balance, accord-
ing to the Privy Council judg-
ment, related to sums of $8.4
million and $11 million that
were supposed to be held in the
accounts of the two IBCs.
Despite repeated requests to
the courts, Mr Winder has been
unable to obtain orders com-
pelling Barclays, UBS Geneva
and Suisse Security staff, man-
agement and directors to pro-
vide "all relevant information"
on the two IBCs, in addition to
turning over the funds both
companies held on the bank's
behalf.
To further these objectives,
Mr Winder needs to be appoint-
ed as full liquidator with asso-
ciated powers.
Meanwhile, yesterday's Privy
Council ruling was founded on
principles it established in a
2004 ruling. While cost orders
against non-parties were
"exceptional", the Privy Coun-
cil had found then that "where a
non-party promotes and funds
proceedings by an insolvent
company solely or substantially
for his own financial benefit, he
should be liable for the costs if
his claim or defence fails".
Translating this into the Gov-
ernor's application, the Privy
Council ruled: "Contrary to Mr
Harajchi's submission, their
Lordships cannot regard this as
a case where Mr Harajchi was
acting in the interests of Suisse
Security or, more especially, its
general body of creditors, as
opposed to his own interests.
The inference from the
way he was running Suisse
Security before its licence was
revoked and from his "silence
and non-cooperation" after
such revocation is that he
was treating Suisse Security as
his creature and preferring his
own interests to its.
"Suisse Security's major
assets did not consist of 'cash
on hand and in banks' (as stated
in its audited accounts and most
recent quarterly reports) but of
deposits with twoi companies
[the IBCs] given similar names
to Suisse Security but owned
and controlled by Mr Harajchi."
The appeal, the Privy Council
noted, was made on Mr Hara-
jchi's behalf. To support the
application, the Central Bank
governor had relied upon evi-
dence from a July 15, 2001,
interlocutory hearing in the
Supreme Court, where Suisse
Security's attorney described
Mr Harajchi as "the mover and
shaker" of the appellants, and
the appellant "in real terms".
Mr Hhrajchi was Suisse Secu-
rity's chairman and main share-
holder, and the Court of Appeal
described the appeal as "a fur-


their appeal by the principal
shareholder".
But while Mr Winder had
been appointed as provisional
liquidator with the authority to
act on the bank's behalf, Mr
Harajchi submitted that he and
Suisse Security's Board had the
power to instruct attorneys to
oppose the licence revocation
and any winding-up attempt.
The Privy Council recorded
that the "excuse" made on Mr
Harajchi's behalf for not
explaining or assisting with the
missing Suisse Security assets
was because it was a matter for
the Governor.
The judgment said: "Their
Lordships are also told that he
'strongly denies that the 'miss-
ing funds' allegation has any
substance whatsoever' and,
since their Lordships' decision
'has already met with and com-
menced co-operation with the
Provisional Liquidator in rela-
tion to the outstanding mat-
ters'."
The Privy Council referred
to the March judgment, in
which they described Mr Hara-
jchi's response as "wholly
unconvincing", while his
"silence and non-cooperation
spoke volumes".
"The further general excus-
es now presented on Mr Hara-
jchi's behalf are, in their Lord-
ships' view, as unconvincing in
this regard as the previous sub-
missions. Mr Harajchi has still
not attempted to dispel the
obvious prima facie inferences
from what occurred and tran-
spired," the Privy Council said.
Mr Harajchi also alleged that
no notice was given of the appli-
cation to seek costs against him
as a non-party to the action,
even though one was given
before the Court of Appeal.
However, leave to appeal to
the Privy Council was granted
on condition that $2,861 was
paid into court as security for
costs, which Mr Harajchi did in
Suisse Security's name.
Their Lordships dotlbt;-'
Swhether any further notice wa'so
called for, beyond that given
prior to the Court of Appeal
hearing. In any event, a failure
to give notice of intention to
seek costs against a non-party is
no more than a factor to be
borne in mind when considering
whether to exercise the juris-
diction to make an order for
costs against a non-party," the
Privy Council said.
It ruled that Mr Harajchhf: .
ordered to pay all costs person;
ally, and that the $2,861 paid
into court with interest be paid
out to the respondent, in this
case the Central Bank's gover-
nor.

THF TRIRI INF


AES and privatization can 'eliminate' deficit -'


FROM page 1B


Hub benchmark index.
When the price of LNG
pumped to Florida rises above
the $4.50 per unit base, the
sharing component included in
the draft Heads of Agreement,
which the Government has yet
to sign, stipulates that 2.5 per
cent of the revenues generated
over and above the $4.50 price
would accrue to the Govern-
ment.
Mr Samson said that while
2005's LNG prices "may or
may not have been an anom-
aly", the Henry Hub compo-
nent of the Heads of Agree-
ment would have generated an
extra $40-$50 million in rev-
enue for the Government.
This could have been used
to help defray the costs
incurred by the Bahamas Elec-
tricity Corporation (BEC) -
more than $140 million last year
in its fuel purchases.
Mr Smith yesterday told The
Tribune the Ministry of Finance
had been very conservative
with its 2006-2007 Budget cal-
culations, not factoring in pos-
sible windfalls from privatisa-
tion, LNG or any tourism pro-
jects that were on the drawing
board, but yet to be approved.
"In the Budget speech, we
indicated we were continuing
to take a very conservative line
and not take into account any
windfall from projects being
discussed or in the pipeline,"
Mr Smith said. "We decided:
let's deal with these things
when they happen, not before."
Referring to any revenues
from these projects, including
potential "up front proceeds
and royalties" from AES, Mr
Smith explained: "You have to
treat it as a windfall."
Of the LNG terminal and
pipeline, he added: "We've had
so many false starts on that pro-
ject, we'd rather see it up and
running before we spend
amounts against it."
Mr Smith pointed out that in
the context of a Budget where
revenues were estimated to be
$1.347 billion in 2006-2007, and
recurrent spending $1.386 bil-
Slion, the $20 million in base rev-
enues, from AES was "welcome
but ,won'tbha.ve a dramatic


impact".
He acknowledged, though,
that it would have more impact
in terms of reducing the recur-
rent deficit further, but the
main benefits from the LNG
project would be felt in the
medium-term.
On the BTC privatization,


Mr Smith said: "It's more of a
positioning now. Bluewater has
done its part, completed its due
diligence and made an offer."
The Government's appointed
negotiating team was review-
ing the terms of the offer, and
working out how the process
would work.

Bidding Quiz


You are South, both sides vulner-
able. The bidding has gone:
West North East South
1 1V 2* ?
What would you bid with each of
the following five hands?
1. 4AK983 V Q74 762 4 J8
2. 4 A107 V J5 KQ9 4 KQJ63
3. 4 10 V Q863 A65 4 AQJ83
4. 4 AJ762 V KJ6 * KJ985
5. KJ8753 T 9 J83 4 972

1. Two hearts. The best way to
show heart support, which you have,
is by raising hearts. A two-spade bid
(not forcing) would not suggest sup-
port for hearts, and there is no reason
to assume that spades would be a bet-
ter trump suit Partner did not open
the bidding he merely overcalled,
indicating a strong five-card or
longer suit in a hand of frequently
less than opening strength and a
two-spade bid could easily lead to
the wrong contract
2. Three notrump. Partner must
have values of some sort for his bid
- whether in high cards, distribution
or both. Game must be reached,
whatever the nature of his hand.
Although three notrump appears to


be the right spot, partner might have
other thoughts and retreat to four
hearts which your well-rounded
hand can also support. The important
point is that you can't bid only two
notrump or three clubs, neither of
which is forcing.
3. Four hearts. If this hand doesn't
yield at least 10 tricks, you'd better
get yourself a new partner. An alter-
native choice is three diamonds, a
cuebid, to indicate slam possibilities.
4. Three diamonds. Here, also,
you must get to game and con-
ceivably a slam and the proper
way of suggesting both possibilities
is by a cuebid. Partner might cooper-
ate by cuebidding in his own right to
show interest in slam. If he merely
bids three hearts, you carry on to four
hearts.
5. Pass. Here there is the real dan-
ger of a misfit, so the wisest thing to
do is to pass. Two spades might work
out well in a given case, but all too.
often it would lead to serious trouble.
If partner does not have spades, the
opponents might begin doubling and
collect a fat penalty. There is a fun-
damental rule that in misfit hands,
you drop out of the picture as soon as
possible. Here, that times now.

FRIDAY,
JULY 28, 2006
ARIES Mar 21/Apr 20
*You're given an opportunity to really
show off your business skills this
week, Aries. Higher-ups will be
impressed with your presentation. Use
the exposure to your advantage.
TAURUS Apr 21/May 21
A tough situation gets even tougher
for you, Taurus. Unfortunately, it'll
take a few weeks to reach a resolution.
Lie low until then, and then face the,
problem head on.
GEMINI May 22/Jun 21
Stop meddling, Gemini. Although
you may think your opinion means
something (and it usually does),
stop offering unwanted advice to
all you meet.
CANCER Jun 22/Jul 22
Relationships at hotne continue to
get more stressed, Cancer. You're
being very needy lately, and others
are no longer willing to cave in to
your demands.
LEO Jul 23/Aug 23
A party you're planning will turn out
*to be a success, Leo, -o don't worry
'At all Just be siire to enlist as much
'help as'-possibldein' the' execution of
the event.
VIRGO Aug 24/Sept 22
You've made a big move in your per-
sonal life, but it's not what you,
thought it would be. Be patient and.
things are sure to work themselves
out. Otherwise, pack up and move on.
LIBRA Sept 23/Oct 23
A newfound responsibility has you
feeling the heat, Libra. Take a much-
needed break and focus on birthday
festivities instead. Clearing your
mind will do wonders.
SCORPIO Oct 24/Nov 22
You're ready to make a big decision
in your personal life, Scorpio. It could
be time to move on to greener pas-
tures, especially if a current relation-
ship isn't gelling like it should.
SAGITTARIUS Nov 23/Dec 21
A former friend resurfaces and wants
to rekindle the friendship. After a
not-so-nice breakup, you're not sure
if you should oblige. Think it over
before acting, Sagittarius.
CAPRICORN Dec 22/Jan 20
You're putting too much stress on
yourself to be perfect, Capricorn.
This week, let go of some of the
responsibilities you take on and
enjoy yourself for a change.
AQUARIUS Jan 21/Feb 18
You're ready to change scenery,
Aquarius. Start scoping out new
home locations and make a list of
what features you desire in a new
residence. It'll help you greatly.
PISCES Feb 19/Mar 20
A health concern will turn out to be a
minor blip on the radar. Don't over-
stress because you'll get through it
with flying colors.


CHES by Leonrd Barde


Masha KIInova v David Spence,
Gibraltar Telecom 2006. White
(to move) has a dream position,
She is two pawns up, has
trapped the black king in the 7
comer, and has the white
queen poised to deliver the
decisive Qe8+. Just one small
problem: White's own king is in 4
check. There are four plausible
ways to escape: 1 Qf3 offering
a queen exchange, 1 3 2
interposing the pawn, 1 Be3
retreating the bishop, and 1
Kh4 running with the king. You
might think they all win, but
the position is deceptive. One r
of the choices actually loses, d
another draws due to a hidden w
resource, while the other pair B
really do score the point. In the b
actual game neither expert

edision. White made one of the
wrong selections, whereupon
lack tamely resigned. Can you do
better?

COMMONWEALTH

BANK CHAIRMAN'S REPORT


I am pleased to report Commonwealth Bank's continuing strong performance. For the first six
months of 2006, Commonwealth Bank recorded net income of $17.9 million, an increase of
22.8% over the same period of 2005 ($14.6 million).

This strong second quarter performance resulted in earnings per share for the quarter of 25
cents, (2005: 20 cents) and for the six months to June 30th, 2006 of 48 cents, compared to 38
cents for the first half of 2005, an increase of 10 cents per share or 26.3%. Total Assets
increased to $941 million at June 30th, 2006.

Compared to the same period in the prior year, Annualised Return on Common Shareholders'
Equity was 32.55% up from 30.83% and Return on Assets increased to 3.53% from 3.11%.

Investor confidence in the Bank was clearly demonstrated, when, at the beginning of July, 2006,
the Bank successfully completed, within one week, the issue of $24.125 million Preference
Shares by private placement. This transaction will be reflected in our 2006 Third Quarter Report
to the Shareholders.


IT ON UNAUDITED RESULTS JUNE 30, 2006


Overall economic activity in the country continues to give an encouraging outlook for the third
quarter of the year. Construction on our latest branch, Golden Gates, continues and we
anticipate the Branch will be open to the public by year end.

Our continued success rests with our team of dedicated and loyal employees who make
Commonwealth Bank the leader in personal banking. Together with our loyal customers, they
make it possible for me to report the ongoing successful achievements of the Bank.

Council to host




one day clinic


* BOXING
By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
IN CELEBRATING its 10th
anniversary, the World Boxing Coun-
cil will host a one day clinic on Satur-
day at the Radisson Cable Beach
Hotel on Saturday.
Raul Nieves, one of the judges in
town from Puerto Rico, said they are
excited to be here because they have
been throughout the Caribbean and
Central American region putting on
these type of clinics.
"We are looking for judges from
here now," Nieves stressed.
The clinic will begin at 9am and,
according to Fred Sturrup, one of the
commissioners in the Bahamas Boxing
Commission, this will be the first step
in getting its local judges internation-
ally certified.


"We feel this is our way of assisting
the judges and the promoters of the
game. We want to ensure that all of
them are able to function at the top of
the game wherever they go."
LaUra Serrano, the former feather-
weight champion from Mexico, will be
arriving in town today as special guest
of the Commission and will make an
appearance at tonight's WBC
Caribbean Boxing Federation's super
middleweight title fight between cham-
pion Marcus 'Marvelous' Thomas from
Barbados and challenger Bahamian
champion Jermaine 'Choo Choo'
Mackey at the Radisson.
Sturrup, a journalist at the Bahamas
Journal, said Serrano will provide a
pep talk to the judges and referees
during the clinic and they are hoping to
line up her to put on an exhibition
with Bahamian female boxer Rose-
mary Green.

in boxing," Sturrup noted.
At 7 pm on Saturday, the Commis-


sion will hold an awards presentation
at Radisson for the Boxer of the Year,
Promotional Excellence, Champions,

Haitian team joins Bahamas

volleyball event line-up


* VOLLEYBALL
By KELSIE JOHNSON
Junior Sports Reporter
THE count down has begun
for the Bahamas Volleyball Fed-
eration (BVF), as they prepare
to host the biggest volleyball
tournament in the Caribbean.
The 11th senior Caribbean
Volleyball Championships
(CVC), which will be held in the
Bahamas, August 20th-28th, at
the Sir Kendal Isaacs Gymnasi-
um, will feature top countries
from both the English and Span-
ish speaking Caribbean.
BVF executives, who are
pleased to announce that the
Haitian team has agreed to com-
pete, also confirmed participa-
tion from Barbados, Trinidad and
Tobago, St Lucia, US Virgin
Islands, Dominica, Netherlands
Antilles and hopefully Jamaica.
The Bahamas teams, who are
coming from a fifth place finish-
ing in both the men's and wom-
en's division are hoping to
improve their standings and,
according to head coach for the
women's team Joseph Smith, the
team is ready to meet the chal-
lenge.
Smith has predicted that both
squad members will be able to
leave with a medal around their
necks since they play in the gold


medal matches.
He said: "The Bahamas stands
a very good chance on playing in
the gold medal match, both
teams are that strong.
"In the past both programmes
were in a rebuilding stage and
needed a little extra boost to get
to that level. But they are defi-
nitely ready this time. There is a
good mix of players and you can
see the hunger on each of the
players faces."
Since the implementation of
the tournament, the Bahamas has
won a total of nine medals two
golds, four silvers and five bronze
medals.
The ladies squad has been the
dominant team, claiming five of
the nine medals, with the men
taking the remaining four.
President of the federation
Don Cornish declared that the
games will be the best ever as the
federation has planned several
events that will give teams and
visitors alike an opportunity to
experience the Bahamian culture
first hand.
In addition to the teams con-
firming their participation, the
federation has also joined hands
with the Ministry of Tourism's
Sporting programme in a bid to
promote the championships
throughout the entire Caribbean
and Americas.

Atkins and BarrP


* TRACK AND FIELD
By KELSIE JOHNSON
Junior Sports Reporter

DERRICK Atkins' nation-
al record performance in the
100 metres has landed him on
the medal podium.
The young and upcoming
sprinter, who has erased the
national record for the second
time for the year, clocked
10.13 seconds for the silver
medal at the Central Ameri-
can and Caribbean (CAC)
games.
His record breaking perfor-
mance at the games came in
the semi-final rounds of the
event. He posted a time of
10.08 seconds for the second
fastest time heading into the
finals.
The final was won by Chu-
randy Martina in a new CAC
record of 10.06 seconds, his
second of the meet. Finishing
behind Martina and Atkins
was Jacey Harper in 10.33 sec-
onds.
Another Bahamian to soar
his way on the medal podium
for silver was Trevor Barry in
the men's high jump.
Barry out-jumped team-
mate Donald Thomas for the
win, clearing 2.16m, while
Thomas posted a best clear-
ance of 2.13m.
The men's long jump event
is expected to be a real "eye
catcher" with the 2006 World
Indoor Championships silver
medallist Irving Saladino
heading into the final rounds
with the best jump.

Marker

Saladino of Panama has set
the marker at 7.97m, beating
out Barry's 7.78m and
Osbourne Moxey's 7.60m.
The finals in this event are
scheduled for today.
In the men's 200m, both
Dominic Demeritte and Den-
nis Darling has advanced to
the semifinal rounds.
SThe national record holder
in the 200m, Demeritte posted
a time 21.62 seconds with Dar-
ling clocking 21.66 seconds.
Demeritte will run out of lane
eight in heat two and Darling
out of lane one in heat three.
According to team manager
Ralph McKinney, the chances
of the Bahamas capturing
medals in the men's 200m is
favourable, but both male ath-
letes will have to exert them-
selves if they want to advance
to the finals.
"They will have to have a
really smart race if they are
hoping to move through to the
finals," said McKinney.
"They are capable of mak-
ing it through to the finals, but
they will have to get a jump on
the field, especially Dominic
because he is out there. In the


long jump, I must admit that
the two guys just did enough
to ensure that they made it to
the finals.


"Trevor and Osbourne are
ready for the finals and we will
be expecting some big jumps
from them."


The finals of the men's
200m was scheduled to take
place at 7.45 yesterday
evening.


Today's schedule will see
the semifinals of the women's
4x100m and 4x400m for
men.


So far, the Bahamas has
claimed seven medals five
in swimming and two in track
and field.

THE first time Marcus -Marvelous'
Thomas appeared in the Bahamas. he
left an impression as an amateur tight-
er.
Tonight. Thomas is back and he
hopes to impress the fans once again
when he tries to defend his World Box-
ing Council's Caribbean Boxing Fed-
eration's super middleweight champi-
onship title.
It will be Thomas' third defence of
the title that he won back in 2003. His
opponent: Bahamian super mid-
dleweight champion Jermaine 'Choo
Choo' Mackey.
The interesting fact about the First
Class Promotions' 12-round main eent
bout is that both fighters are coming
into the ring at the Radisson Cable
Beach ballroom wiith undefeated
records.
Thomas, a 36-year-old. 6-fool-1. 168-
pounder. said he's prepared and looking
forward to holding onto his lille. As a
matter of fact. he says he has no choice
but to "in.
"It will be a disappointment for me
not to win." said the Barbadian cham-
pion. "I would not like to go back home
without it. I have to win."
His manager Sam Layne said
although Thomas has not fought since
last year, he brings a health of experi-
ence to the ring, which should help him
overcome the hometown deficit that
he faces against Mackey.
"It's been difficult finding opponents
for him." Layne reflected. "He's a two-
time Olympian. Commonwealth Games
medalist. CAC medalist. eight-lime
Caribbean Amateur champion.
"Marcus has over 100 amateur lights.
He's been to all of the big games. He's
seen all fighters, all size. Even the guy
he's going to fight, he expects him to put
up a good fight. But Marcus is ready for
anything."
Although he's coming in Mackey's
backyard for the title defence, Thomas
said he's not taking it lightly because
he's aware of what his opponent is capa-
ble of doing.
"I saw him fight as an amateur. He
saw me fight as an amateur too. So any-
thing could happen," Thomas stressed.
Asked if he wants to make a predic-
tion, Thomas declined, saying: "No pre-
dictions." When asked if he think the
fight will go the distance, he comment-
