toxic fume reports
on Long Island
By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter
inspectors are investigating
alleged cases of toxic chemical
exposure in Long Island.
Speaking with The Tribune
S... yesterday, director of environ-
mental health at the Ministry
of.Energy and Environment
Ron Pinder said that inspectors
stationed in Long Island are
investigating a case where toxic
fumes are reportedly affecting
the local population.

Claims over Anna

Anna Nicole Smith to gain perma-

"disingenuous and dishonest," accord-

In the latest exchange in the row

A MAN claiming he was attacked by
police in his home early Friday morning
said he was nearly "beaten to death"
over a case of mistaken identity.
The man, who has reportedly pre-
sented his case to the complaints unit
on East Street, said he was sleeping
when he heard someone rapping loudly
on his door some time after 3am yes-
"Before I got my tennis shoes on,
police broke down the door and dragged
me out of my house," he told The Tri-
bune in an exclusive interview.
The man claimed several police then
began beating him.
'They kicked me, and gun butted me,
and even put me in a choke-hold," he
said, visibly upset by the encounter.
He said that after the beating had gone
on for some time, one of the officers
said: "All right, that's enough, y'all trying
to kill him, hey?"

"Our position is that the system is now working
where if you apply to be a permanent resident we
are trying to move as quickly as possible. I have per-
manent resident applications going to Cabinet once
every two weeks now," he said.
Outlining the department's policy, Mr Gibson said:
"There are two separate and distinct paths to the
application for permanent residency in The Bahamas."
One route, he said, is "through a long and cred-
itable residence as a contributing member of the
The other requires that the applicant has made
"significant economic investment" in the country.
It is via the latter route that Mr Gibson implied Ms
Smith had gained her residency.
The investment route to residency was introduced
in the 1980s, noted the minister, in an effort to attract
"high end persons" to the country.
According to Mr Gibson, if a person buys a prop-
erty worth over $500,000 they are "able to get per-
manent residency right away."
The policy was also in place during Dr Deveaux's
tenure, he said.
Meanwhile, Mr Gibson noted how, during Dr
Deveaux's time as minister, Czech investor Victor
Kozeny's application for residency was granted in 10
In light of this, said the minister, "it is strange that
Dr Deveaux would now level charges that the pro-
cessing of a similar application by Ms Anna Nieole
Smith in three months would set a "disturbing prece-
"Hopefully we can clear up any misunderstandings
in the press," said Mr Gibson, adding: "We are here
really to protect the interest of all."
According to the minister's press release, Ms
Smith's application took three months to process.
However, on Thursday in response to information
received by The Tribune that she was, in fact, granted
residency in three weeks Mr Gibson replied that "if
it could have been done in'a day, then I would have
done it in a day."

As rumors swirled about 20-
year-old Daniel Smith's death at
his mother's hospital bedside, head
coroner Linda Virgill last week
labeled the case "suspicious" and
called for an inquest that could
lead to criminal charges.
The air of mystery began to lift
this week as judicial officials

Pope's comment stirs irrational reaction
FOR THE better part of 19 centuries,
issues of religious faith lay behind some of
the bloodiest chapters in human history.
"Then in the 20th century, products of human
rationality nationalism, communism,
Nazism became the primary protagonists
of mayhem and massacre.
In this new millennium, it seems, what's
old is once.again new. And why that is so
was at the heart of Pope Benedict XVI's
recent remarks at the University of Regens-
The pope launched his discourse about
the interaction between faith and reason in
human affairs by noting a marginal point
in a dialogue between the 14th-century
Byzantine Emperor Manuel II and a Persian
emissary. Their subject was Christianity and
Islam and, Benedict noted, "the truth of
Concerning the general relationship
between religion and violence, he quoted
Manuel's observation about Muhammad's
"evil and inhuman ..... command to spread
by the sword the faith he preached."
The quote is certainly provocative. And
given the narratives preached by some of his
papal predecessors, it was insensitive. Three
Crusades brought Christian swords to the
throats of Jews and Muslims in the Holy'
Land. The fourth laid waste the Byzantium
of Manuel's forebears.
But that caustic line is also incidental to
Benedict's greater discussion about faith
and reason. "God is not pleased by blood,"
he further quotes Manuel. "And not acting
reasonably is contrary to God's nature. Faith
is born of the soul, not the body. Whoever
would lead someone to faith needs the abil-
ity to speak well and to reason properly,
without violence and threats."
That's hardly provocative or insensitive.
And the pope's message would have
received a kinder initial reception from a
broader audience had he managed to elim-
inate Manuel's Islamocentric reference. But
there's a good chance we would have ended
up in the same place.,
It took a few days to stoke the embers of
Benedict's speech, transforming it into a
fiery assault on Islam. Without the "spread
by the sword" allusion, it just would have
taken a little longer for some enterprising

For the same reason, no apology exists
that can restore Benedict to the good graces
of the aggrieved. A Muslim leader in Gaza
urged the pope to surrender to Islam in
order to find peace.
On Sunday, Roger McShane writing
online for Slate noted the irony of the
"In Afghanistan, where apostates are sub-
ject to execution, the parliament and the
Foreign Ministry demanded an apology. In
Yemen,'where religious conversion is pun-
ishable by death, the president has threat-
ened to sever diplomatic ties. In the West
Bank, Palestinians attacked four churches
with guns and firebombs. And a Somali cler-
ic added his two cents: 'Whoever offends
our Prophet Muhammad should be killed on
the spot by the nearest Muslim."'
No faith is immune from the irrationality
of what the pope called "the disturbing
pathologies of religion and reason."
Yet amid all the calls for papal contri-

The Gospel contains nary an exhortation

faithful to love their neighbors uncondi-

required many centuries of encounter before
faith finally reached an accommodation with
reason in the West.
Benedict's address was an invitation to

invitation to share that encounter with a
progressive Islamic world. As global events
unfortunately demonstrate, some minority

Trade with China: what
are the right figures?
EDITOR, The Trbune
One of my favourite bands,
The Who, penned a song
titled A trick of the light, but
The Tribune Business of
Wednesday, September 13,
2006 seems to have caught
the Minister of Foreign
Affairs, Mr. Fred Mitchell in
a trick of the numbers.
Let me explain.
The front page story quotes
Mr. Mitchell as saying that
"there had been an explosion
of Bahamian trade in recent
years an estimated $150
million US between countries
just last year,...".
So being the curious kind I
called the Ministry of Foreign
Affairs to ask them to pro-
vide the details. I didn't both-
er to call the Minister to pro-
vide a breakdown of what
constituted this amount of
trade between The Bahamas
and China as I thought he
might already be in Cuba cel-
ebrating with the ideologues
of the Non-Aligned Move-
I then called the.Depart-
ment of Statistics to see what
they recorded as imports
from China during 2005.
They confirmed that we
imported $401,392 worth of
goods. A far cry from $150
Still confused I called the
Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
again and they suggested I
speak with the Chinese
So I called the Chinese
Embassy and spoke with a
very helpful gentleman who
informed me that there was
$155,000,000 of trade
between the two countries.
I then pressed for details
of this number and was
advised that the $155 million
included the sale of ships that
are registered in The
Bahamas, but he could not
provide any further details.
Pressing a little further he
advised that he thought China
imported some $18,000,000
from The Bahamas and this
included things like seafood.
Continuing to press I
learned that the Chinese
numbers do not show the val-
ue of goods actually imported
by The Bahamas as the ships
are only registered here, not
owned by Bahamians. Also,
some of the $155,000,000
worth of goods could have
been transshiippd to other.
nations through the container
port in Freeport, Grand
If you haven't figured it out
by now, I am quite thick, and
still can't reconcile how the
Department of Statistics
could record imports fr-oma
China at $401,392 while Chi-
na and the Ministry c }r-
eign Affairs numbers su,1"'t
we imported s:o.
$137,000,000 ($155 mili..
total trade less $18 million oi
exports to China) of goods
So "despite the fact that
the information is there for
all to see" as Minister
Mitchell implored, I am hop-
ing he can clarify these par-
ticular numbers for me when
he comes back from Cuba.
If the minister can't explain
the numbers I'm afraid that
his statement was merely a
trick of the numbers to sell
his ideological view that we
need an embassy in China. If
the department of Statistics
numbers are correct, and fol-
lowing the Minister's logic,
The Bahamas imported
$5,665,812 from Mexico last
year so we must need an
embassy there as well?
September 14 2006
(In view of these figures we
think that Prime Minister
Perry Christie should justify
to the Bahamian people his
government's decision to
have an embassy in Beijing.
We were told we needed an
embassy in Cuba because of
the number of Bahamians
studying there and those
seeking medical care, but Bei-.

Gibson steps in to ensure renewal
of dive instructor's work permit
A MULTI-LINGUAL div-
ing instructor whose work per-
mit was revoked without expla-
nation has been granted a
"reprieve" by the immigration
The decision follows a per-
sonal visit by Immigration Min-
ister Shane Gibson to the Unex-
so site in Grand Bahama,
where the instructor works.
Cristina Zenato, an Italian in
her mid-thirties, had been work-
ing in Grand Bahama for 12
years. She owns a condo in
Freeport and hoped to spend-
her life there.
When her permit renewal was
turned down recently, she was.
"devastated and inconsolable,"
according to friends.
Now Mr Gibson has stepped
in and renewed Ms Zenato's
permit along with those of three
colleagues, all dolphin trainers
and dive instructors.
Mr Gibson's decision to over-
rule department officials fol-
lows last week's INSIGHT arti-

protests by Unexso, which said
it was prepared to launch judi-
cial review proceedings chal-
lenging the refusals.
Mr Steve Riely, Unexso's
manager, said last night: "I per-
sonally wish to extend my grat-
itude to the Immigration Board
for their prompt reconsidera-
tion of the work permits for
these three individuals.
"Ms Zenato has been with
the company.for over a decade
and she is a trusted employee
who contributes in very unique
ways to the success of our oper-
ation. It would have been a
great challenge to continue to
do business without her.
"The approval of Jamie
Doglione and Amber Heavner
for the Dolphin Experience is
also gratifying. The Dolphin
Experience will be able to con-
tinue with its programmes and
provide entertainment to tourists
and continue to offer opportu-
nities for Bahamians to develop
skills as dolphin trainers."
Mr Smith said he was pleased
the board was so responsive.
Once the matter came to a
head, the minister and other
senior immigration officials "co-
operated fully" in reconsider-
ing Unexso's plight, he added.

up inquest procedure
is still undecided
S, 0 ., OJ
* By ALISON LOWE
FAMILIES who thought the
dissolution of the Coroner's
Court would mean a speedy
inquest into the death of their
loved ones may have to think
again, it has emerged.
Although Chief Magistrate
Roger Gomez has said that he
and his colleagues are going to
"do our best to try to. speed up
the process" it has come to
light that exactly how this will
be achieved is still unclear.
It was announced on Tues-
day that instead of having just
one coroner see to the backlog
of cases, all 13 magistrates
would be empowered to con-
duct inquests into deaths. How-
ever, The Tribune learned yes-
terday that for now, most of the
matters are likely to still be
heard in only one courtroom.
When the dissolution of the
court was announced, Attorney
General Allyson Maynard-Gib-
son said that one key factor in
support of the decision was that
it would lead to the backlog of
cases being seen more rapidly.
This, she said, would be
because rather than one coro-
ner seeing all cases, "each mag-
istrate can act as a coroner and
further, all magistrate's courts
would become available for
However, in an interview
with The Tribune yesterday,
Chief Magistrate Gomez admit-
ted that "most of the matters"
will still have to be seen in the
main court in accordance cur-
rent protocol because of space
restrictions in courts elsewhere.
The Victoria Gardens court
is "set up for the coroner" he
said and has the necessary
space for a jury, among other
"Most of the other magis-
trate's courts don't have those
facilities," and as such, the
majority of cases will probably
still be heard there", he admit-
Mr Gomez said that he and
his colleagues are in the process
of trying to set up a system to
ensure cases are seen more
quickly, and that this was one of
the topics discussed at a meeting
with the chief justice yesterday.
He suggested that magistrates
may take up the position of
coroner on a monthly basis.
Tuesday's decision by Chief
Justice Burton Hall to dissolve
the court was said to be a
response to what Mr Gomez
indicated were a substantial
number of complaints about the
rapidity with which a date for an
inquest into the death of Daniel
Smith, son of US celebrity
Anna Nicole Smithi, had been
An October 23 inquest date
would have meant that Daniel
Smith's case was seen only six
weeks after his death despite
the fact that some Bahamian
families have been waiting
months and even years for their
matters to be heard.

AS several condemned
inmates continue to languish
on death row, some commu-
nity leaders are questioning
why the moratorium on capital
punishment has not yet been
And in the wake of the
Privy Council ruling that the
mandatory death penalty is
unconstitutional in the
Bahamas, a number of promi-
nent Bahamians say they are
still in favour of tough punish-
ments for serious crimes.
"I am a proponent for cap-
ital punishment and I believe
as soon as the cases have
been completed and all the
appeals have been exhaust-
ed, we should carry out the
function of, ending their
lives," said Secretary Gener-
al of the Bahamas Union of
Teachers Belinda Wilson yes-
"If hanging seems too bar-
baric, as some people say, we
should look closely into lethal
injection or the electric chair,"
Carlos Reid, Director of
Youth Against Violence, said,
"I have no problem with capi-
tal punishment as long as the
system does not show
"I believe that a lot of peo-
ple have lost faith in the judi-
cial system, and I believe if we
could get faith back in the sys-
tem, I would not have a prob-
lem with capital punishment
at all," he said.
He also added that, "some-
thing drastic needs to be done
as far as our young men and
violence. We need to find a
strategic plan and if this plan
involves setting an example,
then so be it."
Rev Wilton McKenzie, Pas-

that it is not just the crime of
murder that should carry a

heinous because the victims
lives are sometimes taken
away, as they become prison-

persons convicted of these
crimes should be punished,"
Cassius Stuart, leader of the

ment (BDM), agreed with this
He said last week that indi-
viduals who commit serious
sexual crimes should go to
prison for life or be castrat-
Mr Stuart also feels that the
government is not putting
enough effort into ending vio-
lent crime. "Christie is too soft
on crime," he said.
Meanwhile, official statistics
reveal that the crime rate has
begun to escalate again after a
dip in recent years.
There were 52 murders in
2005, a 15 per cent increase
over 2004; and 782 armed

Cordell Farrington 'wants the death penalty'
FROM page one
At age 12, Farrington's
grandmotherr took his wet bed-
Sing to school and "embar-
rassed" him. That is when "all
love and trust was destroyed,"
the report stated.
Farrington's father claims to
have been emotionally and
financially supportive of his chil-
dren. His mother does not
abuse drugs and claims of her
abusive nature are unfounded,
the report stated.
The court also heard that the
convicted man pursued a ter-
tiary level education in the areas
of theology and psychology.
Farrington was also deeply
involved in a non-denomina-
tional church and even became
an evangelist, the court heard.
Farrington learned that he
was HIV positive in 2001 upon
his second admittance to the
Sandilands Detox Unit due to
his addiction to "freebase"
cocaine. It was there that he
met Jamal Robins and the two
began a sexual relationship,
despite Farrington allegedly
telling the deceased that he had
HIV, the court also heard. Far-
rington is still experiencing good
health, the court was told.
Farrington, it was claimed,
struggled to hold a steady job
for numerous reasons. Farring-
ton lives a double life, engag-
ing secretly in homosexuality,
it was alleged.
While in prison, Farrington
has become a Christian and has
asked God for forgiveness for
According to the report, Far-
rington is adamant on receiv-
ing the death penalty, struggles
with the desire to commit sui-
cide and does not believe that
he can be rehabilitated.
Psychiatrists Dr Michael
Neville and Dr Timothy Bar-
rett, who both testified at Far-
rington':; Supreme Court trial,
were called to answer questions
at a sentencing hearing yester-
Neither psychiatrist would say
whether they believed Farring-
ton represented a "grave danger
to society," a question posed by
Cheryl Grant-Bethel, deputy
director of prosecutions.
Dr Neville said he was reluc-
tant to delve into that aspect
because it presented him with
an ethical conflict and had
potential to do harm. He
explained that he had sworn an
oath to be truthful to the court
but was also obligated to the
people that he served.
Dr Barrett said he could not
say how Farrington would react
to general society. He said he
could only speak to how Far-
rington dealt with rejection and
loss, which he discovered from
speaking with the inmate.
Both psychiatrists stated
that persons suffering from
personality disorders would
continue to suffer and each
told the court that these dis-

Library and learning
resource at centre is
dedicated by Kiwanis
* MELANIE Griffin, Minister of Social Services, being presented with
the key to the building by the president of the Kiwanis club of Nassau
AM, Janet Brown
.THE Kiwanis Club of Nassau AM
dedicated a library and learning
resource to the Simpson Penn Centre
for Boys in an effort to help support
the rehabilitation of its residents.
At the opening on Wednesday,
president of the club Janet Brown
said the new facility will serve as a
"door of opportunity to a new world
for our boys."
"In this centre they will learn to
read better, write, spell, and add
and do all things that will give them
choices once leaving this institu-
tion," she said.
Mrs Brown said that building the
centre was not an easy task.
"Our first project began with
prayers as a Kiwanis Family at the
St Thomas More Church where
Father Glen Nixon blessed the
members. "At that time, we gave a
small financial donation to assist
with the Church's upcoming bazaar
and shortly after, the blessings start-
ed to flow and the key to the door
was granted by God in fulfillment of
the library," she said.

Griffin said that "appropriate
opportunities" must be provided
for the rehabilitation of all persons.
who after a period of confinement,
are to be released into society.
"While there are some who
would advocate otherwise, we can-
not lock away persons who contra-
vene the laws of the land and throw
away the key," she said. '
"I fully ascribe to the principle
that persons must be held account-
able for their actions and persons
who contravene laws must suffer
the penalty ascribed by the law;
however, in the process of doing so,
all efforts should be made towards
the rehabilitation of the person.
"Then, having paid their debt to
society persons must be given the
opportunity to rebuild and continue
their lives," Mrs Griffin said.
She added: "What kind of life will
a teenager be subjected to if oppor-
tunities for rehabilitation are not pro-
vided? We have many examples of
persons who were able to turn their
lives around all because of the efforts
of others who demonstrated faith in
them and offered tangible assistance."

Opening lead queen of clubs.
It is desirable to have at least eight
trumps in the combined hands to
play in a suit contract, but there are
times when one must settle for less.
Consider this deal from a team-
of-four match where, at the first
table, South reached four hearts on a
4-3 fit. This contract was quite rea-.
sonable, even though declarer's
trump margin over the defenders was
only seven to six.
South won the queen-of-clubs
lead with the ace and played a dia-
mond to the queen. West took the
king and led another club, dummy's

South ruffed a diamond in
dummy and cashed the A-K-Q of
trumps, leaving West'with the only
remaining trump, the ten. But despite
his apparently commanding position,
West found himself with no recourse
when declarer proceeded to run his
diamonds. West ruffed the fifth dia-
mond, but then had to lead a spade to
declarer's king and so hand South his
At the second table, South wound
up in three notrump and went down
one when he encountered superb
defense. West led the four of spades,
the unbid suit, covered by dummy's
six. East then made the fine play of
the five, taken by declarer with the

or three on the first trick made it
clear to West that East's five was a
come-on signal. So when South

a diamond finesse, West took the

Alexander Grischukv Stevan ecac,
Bled 1999. Grischuk Is one of my
favourite grandmasters. The 22-year-
old Muscovite, son of a physicist,
has been a rival of London's top GM
Luke McShane ever since they won
gold and silver at the world under-
tens. Grischuk has single-handedly
revived e4 e6 2 d4d5 3 e5 against
the French Defence, demonstrating
that White can create a dangerous
attack before his extended pawn
centre collapses. Today's diagram is
typical of the positions which can
result from 3 e5. Material is level,
but there is a big difference between
the kings. White's is safe, Black's is a
target for White's queen, rook and
bishop. How did Grischuk (White, to
move) force rapid victory?
