FNM: PM's credibility dealt grievous blow


i By PAUL TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
PRIME Minister Perry Christie's credibility
has been dealt a grievous, "if not fatal blow," by
his own failed attempts.to do%\npla\ the rau-
cous brawl between two of his MPs, the FNM
said yesterday.
According to the party the only thing the PLP
has given the pubic on serious issues, such as
this one, is nothing more than "song and dance."

Pro-PLP website critical over brawl


* By MARK HUMES
IN LIGHT of the alleged
Kenyatta Gibson-Keod Smith
fist-fight fiasco, a major apolo-
gist for the Progressive Liberal
Party, knowingly or not, has
suggested that the Bahamas
government does not adhere
to "conventions."
Rendering a scathing criti-
cism of the alleged brawl which
took place last Monday in the
Cabinet office between the


Chairman of the Gaming
Board and the Ambassador of
the Environment, Bahamasun-
censored.com, a local champi-
on for the PLP cause, ques-
tioned the government's next
move in handling the two "first
timers."
"The question is what should
.be done," the article asks. "Will
the apology be enough?"
"In any other system, the
two should offer their resigna-
tions to the Prime Minister


forthwith as Chairman of the
.Gaming Board (Gibson) and
Ambassador for the Environ-
ment (Smith)," said the arti-
cle's writer. However, the arti-
cle continues, "as proper, as
that is, it is, given our lack of
adherence to these conven-
tions, unlikely to happen."

cise members of the PLP party

AG tells new lawyers: your obligation




is first to the court then to your clients


FROM page one
week, the Attorney General
told the gathered attorneys
that "counsel has no place in
bringing an application, no
matter what counsel's.instruc-
tions may be, that would cause
the court to fall into disrepute
or to be made a laughing
stock."
Mrs Maynard-Gibson
pointed out that some coun-
sel may say that they are fol-
lowing instructions, but, very
poignantly, she said: "Those
counsel must only follow


instructions to the point that
they are not abusing the
process of the court.
"The courts do not have
objections to the legitimate use
of tactics and strategies in both
criminal and civil proceed-
ings," said Mrs-Maynard-Gib-
son: "The question that always
looms in the minds of counsel
and court," she continued, "is
when do those strategies and
tactics no longer become legit-
imate, but fall into the catego-
ry of an abuse of process?"
The Attorney. General's
address was made on the same
Friday that Justice John Lyon-


s's decision to dismiss Mr
Knowles' application appeared
in the local media, and in
many ways, seemed to reflect
the same sentiments expressed
by Mr Justice Lyons in his rul-
ing;
In handing down his ruling
on the Samuel Knowles mat-
ter, Justice Lyons stated that
the traditional obligation-of
the Attorney General as offi-
cer of the court and as chief
legal counsel of the Crown is
to protect the independence
and reputation of the judicial
process. He suggested that this
obligation was thete to pro-
tect the judiciary from indi-
vidual and collective embar-
rassment.
Drawing the attorneys'
attention to several Supreme
Court common law judgments
and the judgment of Justice
Lyons, the Attorney General
said: "The Bar is no place for
the faint-hearted nor those.
willing to compromise when it
comes to matters of principle,
particularly as it relates to the
independence, the reputation
and the image of the Judicia-
ry.' -i
She advised them to
remember their oath so as not
to lose their bearings when
they encounter "high winds,
strong currents and tumul-
tuous seas."

0 In brief

Woman and
men charged
with drug
possession

OVER the weekend, three
men and one woman were tak-
en into custody and charged
with marijuana and cocaine pos-
session.
According to police, just after
11 am on Saturday, OPBAT
officials, with officers stationed
on the island of Mayaguana,
went to the settlement of
Pirate's Well and found 17 bails
of marijuana in a trailer.
As a result of the discovery,
three persons were arrested a
man and woman from the island
and a man from New Provi-
dence. The unnamed persons
are expected to be returned to
Nassau sometime during the
week to face charges.

Man is found
with huge
haul of
cocaine

A 35-YEAR-OLD Bahamian
man was arrested at Sir Lynden
Pindling International Airport
on Saturday after five and a half
pounds of cocaine were alleged-
ly discovered in one of his bags.
Concealed in a bag belong-
ing to the suspect, the drugs
were discovered as airport
police conducted a routine
check. At the time, the man was
said to be preparing to travel
to Miami.

Half of state
enterprises
'cheat their
customers'
CUBA
Havana
MORE than half of state-run
enterprises inspected in the
Cuban capital this year have
cheated their customers, the
.dommiunist Youth newspaper -
Viveniud Rebelde reported
Sunday, according to Associat-
edPress.
Officials making spot inspec-
tions found that nearly 11,700 of
the 22,700 businesses checked
through August were selling
their products at a higher price
than advertised or delivering
lesser quantities than required,
a local director of inspection
told the newspaper.
Among the worst offenders
are farm markets, restaurants
and bakeries, the director said.
Reporters at the newspaper did
their own investigation, describ-
ing state cafes where beer mugs
weren't filled to the brim and
taxi drivers charged more than
the metered fare.
The two-page spread on the
pervasive cheating came four
days after Cuba's acting Presi-
dent Raul Castro urged workers
to crack down on corruption
and stealing from the state in a
speech to the island's commu-
nist labor union.
Castro, also the island's
defense minister, is in charge
while his older brother Fidel
recovers from intestinal surgery.
Before falling ill, the elder Cas-
tro had been leading his own
campaign against corruption,
portraying the widespread steal-
ing from the state and other
examples of "moral decay" as
the greatest threat yet to Cuba's
socialist system.

Thousands
of pounds of
marijuana
are seized

JAMAICA
Kingston
POLICE have seized thou-
sands of pounds (kilograms) of
marijuana from a home in
Jamaica's capitol Kingston's


second major drug bust in a
week, authorities said Saturday,
according to Associated Press.
The 7,000 pounds of marijua-
na drugs were packaged and
appeared ready to be shipped,
said Inspector -Steve Brown.
One man has been arrested.
Police were investigating
whether the stash was linked to
5,890 pounds of marijuana that
authorities seized in Kingston
last Tuesday. Those drugs were
also prepared for shipment. No
arrests have been made.
Anti-drugs police have seized
about 41,643 pounds of mari-
juana this year.


* By MARK HUMES
SAYING that the alleged
fight between two Progres-
sive Liberal Party members
of parliament is indicative of
bar room antics, officers and
members of The Torchbear-
ers Youth Association called
the incident a "deterioration"
in the integrity of those who
govern the Bahamas.
Joining a growing number
of persons who have voiced
their outrage over the alter-
cation, which supposedly
took place exactly one week
ago, the youth arm of the
Free National Movement
released a statement over the
weekend in which they too
expressed disappointment in
the behaviour and style of
governance of the current
PLP administration.
"Behaviour of this kind is
indicative of bar room antics,
and not only does it deterio-
rate the integrity of the
Christie Administration, but
it deteriorates the integrity of
the governance of our coun-
try. This, ladies and gentle-
men, is no laughing matter.
The fact that the Prime Mm-.
ister and the gentlemen
involved find humour in the
event is far beyond our com-
prehension," the statement
read.
Taking a shot at the Prime
Minister's "much publicised"
Code of Ethics, the group
said that "as young people,
we find -it difficult that our
leaders set such low standards
for us to follow." The Prime
Minister's Code of Ethics,


they continued, must start at
the top and trickle down to
every level of public adminis-
tration in our society.

Deadline

"At this time, when so many
national issues are pressing this
country, when do the PLP mem-
bers of Parliament find the time
to engage in such behaviour?"
the Torchbearers wanted to
know. "We have given the Prime
Minister a week to address the
allegations, and we find what he
has said thus far unsatisfactory."
Like many in society who see
this incident as one which sets a
bad precedent, especially at a
time when youth violence seems
to be increasing, The Torch-
bearers said it does not find
humour in the situation, and
they demanded that examples


be made of the individuals
involved.
"We urge the Prime Minister
not to display a nonchalant atti-
tude to the allegation, as it is a
great concern to PLP voters,
FNM voters, and most impor-
tantly the undecided voters."
"We are months outside the
general election, and four years
later, after much promise of a
'Code of Ethics,'" the group of
young people continued,
"Bahamians are yet to see this
code of ethics displayed among
members of the Government."
A website inclined to the Pro-
gressive Liberal Party, bahama-
suncensored.com, in its weekly
update also suggested that the
two young MPs, Kenyatta Gib-
son and Keod Smith, hand in
their resignation as Chairman
of the Gaming Board and
Ambassador of the Environ-
ment, respectively.

Food marketers hook toddlers on foods


CHICAGO When Susan Connor's 3-
year-old son started humming the McDon-
ald's jingle, a research project was born.
Connor knew where he'd heard the fast food
giant's catchy tune on the Disney Channel
during "The Wiggles," a show for preschoolers.
"He had absorbed that from watching TV,"
said Connor, whose study on food ads aimed at
toddlers appears in the October issue of Pae-
diatrics. "It would be a marketer's dream to
know they were that successful."
Messages for high-fat, high-sugar foods per-
meate programming for preschoolers on Nick-
elodeon, the study found.On the Disney Chan-
nel's shows for the youngest children and even
on Public Broadcasting Service shows such as
"Sesame Street," companies woo tots' loyalty
by linking logos, licensed characters and slogans
with fun and happiness.
Disney and PBS promote themselves as ad-
free, but fast food companies dominated spon-
sor messages during programming for toddlers,
Connor found, making up 82 percent of spon-
sor messages on PBS preschool programming
and 36 percent of messages on Disney's toddler
block of shows.
The clown character Ronald McDonald
appears with shows for toddlers on Disney
and PBS. And the cartoon mouse Chuck E.
Cheese pops up alongside preschool pro-
gramming on PBS.
Connor, research manager of Cleveland's
Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital, said
adults who haven't seen children's programmes
lately will be surprised by the findings.
Advocates said the study adds to mounting
evidence that food marketers are trying to
hook the youngest children as lifelong cus-
tomers. Promotions go both ways with TV
characters from children's shows used on the
packaging of sugary cereals, fruit-flavoured
snacks and other foods.
Last week, the Federal Communications
Commission announced plans to study links
between the ads, viewing habits andthe rise of
childhood obesity. For now, marketing of food
to children is unregulated.
Previous studies have found that children
as young as 3 who see TV ads are more likely
to request and eat advertised foods high in fat,
sodium and sugar. American children from
infancy to age 6 watch an average of one hour
of TV daily, and 8-.to-18-year-olds watch an
average of three hours dqily. They see rough-
ly 40,000 TV ads a year.
"It's very concerning when childhood obesity
is a major public health problem that preschool

programmes are still being sponsored by fast
food restaurants and food that's not healthy for
children," said Susan Linn of Harvard Medical
School and a co-founder of the Campaign for
a Commercial-Free Childhood. She was not
involved in the study.
Diane Levin, of Wheelock College who is
also a co-founder of the Campaign for a Com-
mercial-Free Childhood, criticized Disney and
PBS for breaching viewers' trust. She supports
limits on marketing of junk food to children too
young to make critical judgments about adver-
tising.
"PBS has a special responsibility," said
Levin, who was not involved in the study. With
federal funding -threatened, Levin said, PBS
has searched for new revenue, including from'
sponsors who want to reach children.
PBS spokeswoman Lea Sloan said sponsors'
messages don't interrupt programmes and
don't go longer than two minutes, 17 seconds
per hour. PBS doesn't allow price informa-
tion, product comparisons, depictions of chil-'
dren's products or superlative claims, Sloan
said.
"The content of these messages is either in
support of public television or around learning,
education and social development," Sloan said
in an e-mail. "Licensed characters or mascots
often reinforce a positive educational message
and their appearance is limited to five sec-
onds.".,
Nickelodeon spokesman Dan Martinsen said
the channel has reduced food ads during its,
"Nick Jr." block of programmes for preschool-
ers by 20 per cent in the last two years.
Disney Channel spokeswoman Patti
McTeague said sponsor messages are accepted
"only when.they are connected to a pro-social
message."
Chuck E. Cheese spokeswoman Brenda
Holloway said the pizza restaurant chain's play
areas promote physical activity, as do its
ads.
"Realistically, our research shows most chil-
dren come to Chuck E. Cheese's to play and
have fun," Holloway wrote in an e-mail. "We
think that our PBS sponsorship announce-
ments do promote physical activity and social
interaction through play and learning, which we
believe are appropriate messages for preschool-
age children."
McDoiald's did not respond to requests for
comment.

'Non-action' by




Prime Minister





Perry Christie


EDITOR, The Tribune.
THE behaviour of the
two PLP so-called "hon-
ourable members" of par-
liament disturbs me great-
ly, in fact, I am stunned by
their actions!
Their actions are tanta-
mount to a bar room brawl
in the country's Cabinet
Room, where the people's
business is conducted.
Worse, it seems, the
brawl had nothing to do
with government policy or
the people's business.
It saddens me to no end
that Prime Minister
Christie (No Action Perry)
just does not get it, it
seems he never does!
How on God's earth can
Prime Minister Christie,
after all that was revealed
yesterday only say to the
public, on the matter, that
he spoke to the two per-
sons (I cannot refer to
them as men because they
acted like complete and
shameless juveniles) and
they laughed about it.
And that is the end of it!
I guess, we should like it
or lump it too.
What planet is "No
Action Perry" on? It is
inconceivable and incom-
prehensible by any stretch
of the imagination that his
duty to the Bahamian peo-
ple as Prime Minister ends
there. That is just not pos-
sible!
these juveniles, (and
nothingfrore., parading as
men) slhquld have been
made to apologise to the
Bahamian people immedi-
ately, they should have
expressed their sincere
regret (only if it were so),
concede that it, was a mis-
take on their part, that it
was poor judgment, that
they will seek anger man-
agement counseling (and
this is not a joke and only
if it is so), they should say
to young boys who are try-
ing to be young men that
what they did is not,.in any
circumstance the way to
handle a dispute or a dis-
agreement, they should
offer their resignations in
the positions they hold in
government on the peo-
ple's behalf and whether
they are candidates or not
is a matter for "No Action
Perry" and ultimately, if he

allows them to be PLP
standard bearers in 2007, a
matter for their respective
constituents.
None of the above hav-
ing been done (see editor's
footnote), one has to ask,
what is "No Action Perry"
possibly thinking about and
how is he running the gov-
ernment of the day?
The job is his! He asked
the Bahamian people to
give him that privilege in
2002, they did, and, in my
opinion, he has been MIA
(missing in action) ever
since and his comment yes-
terday unmistakably evi-
dences it.
Can you be more out-of
touch? I doubt it sincere-
ly.
I thought Prime Minister
Christie would have been
on this immediately, with
the degree of seriousness
it deserves, not callousness,
cavalierly washing it over,
covering it up, as if it is not
a big deal, not deserving of
much of his time, energy or
attention.
Prime Minister Christie,
(No Action Perry) you
ought to know, and if you
do not, you need to speak
most expeditiously to our
school principals, vice prin-
cipals, senior masters and
mistresses, guidance coun-
sellors and teachers, so that
they can inform you that if
there is one issue of most
concern in our schools
today it is this very one:
the inability of our youth,
especially our young men
to resolve disputes without
restorting to violence.
Mr Christie this is liter-
ally an everyday challenge,
for everyone in the school
system and a battle they
sometimes feel they are
losing, but what do you do
to help? Absolutely noth-
ing!
At a time when you per-
sonally had the opportuni-
ty to address and hopefully
make a meaningful impact
on the situation 'in our
country, and especially in
our schools, you did noth-
ing!
You had a golden, I
mean, GOLDEN opportu-
nity yesterday to inform
everyone, as Prime Minis-
ter that the boorish behav-
iour, the violence demon-
strated by your members
of parliament were totally


unacceptable, unbecoming
'of civilised men and cer-
tainly of members of the
honourable House of
Assembly.
But you did nothing!
You took a pass.
You decided not to lead.
You decided not to be the
Prime Minister the
Bahamian people thought
they elected in 2002..
You ought not forget
that the Bahamian people
will go to the polls in just a
few months, and they too
can take a pass, a pass on
you, and the PLP!
Mr Prime Minister, you
are the chief, the buck
stops with you, you have to
set the standards and if you
set none, none you will
have and neither will most
of us regrettably.
Through your non-action
yesterday, you were, in my
opinion, grossly negligent
in the performance of your
duty as Prime Minister.
You personally, failed us
all miserably yesterday and
in particular, you failed our
youth the most.
They need our guidance.
They need to know and be
shown the right way.
They need to know how
to live in a civil society
which we all share and are
a part of.
You, certainly failed,
very miserably.
Most unfortunately for us
all, this has been another
situation where you, "No
Action Perry" have been
just that, a man of no
action, utter indecisiveness
and talk, talk and more
talk!
A VERY DISTRESSED
& HOPELESS CITIZEN
Nassau,
September 28, 2006.

(On Friday Kennedy MP
Kenyatta Gibson offered
an "unreserved apology"
for the fight between him-
self and Mount Moriah
MP Keod Smith, which
took place after a PLP
parliamentary meeting in
the Cabinet room last
Monday.
("I realise," said Mr
Gibson, "that these events
declined to an unaccept-
able and undignified level.
I therefore sincerely and
unreservedly apologisefor
my conduct, and I hope
that the Bahamian people,
my constituents, and my
colleagues can forgive
me." Ed).

OIn brief

Azerbaijan
president
sends Castro
greetings

* CUBA
Havana
THE president of Azer-
baijan sent a message to the
ailing Fidel Castro wishing
for his steady recovery and
calling for stronger ties
between the two countries,
state-run media reported Sat-
urday, according to Associ-
ated Press.
Elmar Mamedyarov,
Azerbaijan's foreign minis-
ter, delivered the message
Friday in a meeting with
Juan Almeida Bosque, a vice
president in Castro's Cabi-
net and a retired military
officer who fought in the ear-
ly years of the Cuban revo-
lution, a front-page article in
the Communist Party daily
Granma said.
Almeida has played a
more visible role in diplo-
matic affairs as part of a col-
lective leadership taking hold
since the 80-year-old Castro
ceded power to his younger
brother, Defense Minister
Raul Castro, on July 31.
The elder Castro, who is
recovering from intestinal
surgery, has made no public
appearances since then,
though he has been shown
in photographs and videos
receiving visits from several
world leaders in recent
weeks.
There was no report, how-
ever, of a meeting with Russ-
ian Prime Minister Mikhail
Fradkov, whose two-day trip
to Cuba ended Friday and.
marked the highest-level vis-
it from that country since
President Vladimir Putin
came to the island in 2000.

THE College of .The
Bahamas Alumni Association
has:announce that Mr Keith
Bell has won the position as the
2006 Hall of Fame inductee.
The Hall of Fame judging
panel, comprising Mrs Rubie
Nottage, Ms Dawn Jones, Mr
Robert Sands and Dr Roger
Brown, selected the sixth
inductee in the Association's
elite Hall of Fame after delib-
erating for more than an hour.
The panel applauded the qual-
ifications of all of the nominees,
but said that Mr Bell's involve-
ment at COB during his studies
set him apart from the others
and made him the ideal recipient.
The panel also pointed to Mr
Bell's leadership qualities, impec-
cable character and involvement
with the Urban Renewal Pro-
gramme as other factors that
weighed heavily in their decision.
Mr Bell obtained his Associ-


ate's degree in Law and Crimi-
nal Justice in 1995 at COB.
From there he went on to the
University of the West Indies
for his Bachelor's of Law degree
and after completing the Legal
Education Certificate at Eugene
Dupuch Law School in 2000, he
was called to the Bahamas Bar.
On completing his training,
Mr Bell remained with the Roy-
al Bahamas Police Force and
continues to give to his com-
munity. He has a passion for
people, specifically in helping
them, and he believes he can
best do this through his career
with the RBPF.,
In less than five years since
joining the Police Force, he has
achieved the rank of Superin-
tendent, a sure testimony to his
outstanding talent and ability
as an officer.
Mr Bell is also a mnefhber of
several community aid' social


'Smart' programme



is praised for drop



in attacks on visitors


TOURISM officials report a
decrease in the harassment and
complaints of visitors and
attribute this in part to
increased awareness of the
"SMART" graduates to the
importance of the tourism
industry to their livelihood.
SMART is an acronym for
the Sales Marketing and Royal
Treatment programme con-
ducted recently by the Ministry
of Tourism. The opening ses-
sions, for the upcoming smart
programme was held at Holy
Trinity Church Activity Centre.
It was officially opened by
Samuel Gardiner, Sr. Director
of Education for the Ministry


of Tourism, and was addressed
by Archie Nairn, Permanent
Secretary at the Ministry of
Transport and Aviation.
More than 200 persons
attended the opening session,
including hair braiders, pub-
lic service drivers, straw work
representatives and other gov-
ernment officials. This is the
third year of SMART's exis-
tence.
General Manager of Cus-
tomer Service Training for the
Ministry of Tourism, Mrs. Glo-
ria Brown, said: "There have
been a decrease in the harass-
ment and complaints of our vis-
itors, but more importantly,


SMART participants are more
aware of their importance to
the tourism industry".
She announced that an asso-
ciate programme will be intro-
duced so that graduates can
reinforce what they have
learned and can build upon a
good foundation rather than
being left alone.
An incentive programme
will also come on stream for
graduates..It is designed to
reward those graduates caught
in the act of doing something
good.
Another opening session will
be held at the beginning of next
year.


organizations, including the
Catholic Board of Education and
the Bahamas National Trust.
Mr Bell is the third male to
be inducted into COB Alumni
Association's Hall of Fame. The
Alumni Association considers
induction into the Hall of Fame
as its highest honour. It is a des-
ignation extended to individuals
whose lives are the hallmarks
of The College's motto: Knowl-
edge, Truth, Integrity.
Mr Bell will be inducted into
the Hall of Fame on Friday,
November 17, during a luncheon
at the British Colonial Hilton.
Tickets may be obtained from
the office of Alumni Affairs at
302-4366 or 302-4353.
All funds raised have been
earmarked for the Association's
Endowment Fund, which is

of The Bahamas with its major
development plans.

formally in 2003 and the EU
would like to complete them by
2008.
Of the 15 countries that com-
prised the EU up to 2004, eight

The new members had
no history of colonial

countries and felt no particular

June this year when major
differences surfaced between the

Caribbean. Therefore, up to
that time a limited desire
remained among key players in
the EU to "look after", several
countries in the ACP.
After 1995 when Austria,
Finland and Sweden joined the
EU, the majority of members
of the Union had already
begun to move away from the

Indeed, they were far more
'interested in what membership
of the EU could do to improve
their own economic circum-
stances than in the relationship
between the EU and the ACP.
They had witnessed the eco-
nomic transformation that EU
development aid brought to Ire-
land, Spain and Portugal, and
they wanted to benefit in the
same way.
A tougher relationship,
between the EU and the ACP
countries has become very
apparent and was painfully evi-

Council meeting in June this
year when major differences
surfaced between the two
groups of countries.
Among those differences
were: opposing approaches to
tariff liberalisation and market
access; the creation of an effec-
tive funding mechanism to sup-
port the proposed Economic
Partnership Agreements
between the EU and ACP
countries; and giving tangible

The ACP Council was so
Ilnhappy with 'the
negotiating directives that the

of Ministers that it adopted a
decision expressing "disap-
pointment and'apprehension"
over how EC negotiators were
dealing with delivery of devel-

posed EPA's.
All this is likely to get worse
after Bulgaria and Romania

Europe, should contribute
meaningfully to the develop-"

US territory
considers
abortion for
10-year-old
* PUERTO RICO
San Juan
DOCTORS and child rights
groups are pushing Puerto Rican
authorities to decide whether to
perform an abortion on a preg-
nant 10-year-old allegedly raped
by her stepfather, according to
Associated Press.
"The life of this child is at risk
every day that passes and her
pregnancy is more dangerous
for her," Jaime Conde, a lawyer
and founder of the Organisa-
tion of the Defenders of Child
Rights, said Friday. "If an abor-
tion is decided upon, it carries
bigger risks."
Residents of this US island ter-
ritory were shocked by the case,
which came to light this week
after officials at the girl's school
apparently complained to her
mother that she had stopped
wearing her school uniform.
According to El Nuevo Dia
newspaper, on Monday the
mother acknowledged that the
girl was four months pregnant,
and school officials contacted
authorities.
The girl's stepfather was
arrested and charged with eight
counts of rape, and the mother
was charged with two counts of
negligent abuse, El Nuevo Dia
reported. They were both in jail
after failing to make bail.

pick up windows that allow
customers to pull up to a win-
dow, place an order and
make a purchase. The pur-
chase made in this instance is
alcohol and it is legal here in
New Providence.
A demand for fast alcohol,
or rather the ease and conve-
nience which drive-thru
liquor stores offer patrons,
has resulted in a number of
enterprising business mer-
chants tapping into this lucra-
tive business concept.
Khaalis Rolle, Second Vice
President of The Bahamas
Chamber of Commerce
describes the drive-thru liquor
store concept as a "non-tra-
ditional way of delivering ser-
vice."
"When you look at getting
people in and out of your
business in an efficient man-
ner, I think that may serve
that purpose," said Rolle who
believes that this is a good
way of thinking out of the box
from an entrepreneurial per-
spective.
Nelson Knowles, a resident
of Marathon Estates, is not a
frequent drive-thru customer,
but makes use of this service
whenever it's convenient for
him. In less than five minutes
he was able to make a pur-
chase during a recent visit to
Winmar Wines and Spirits on
Prince Charles Drive, with-
out ever leaving his vehicle.
"It's great...You do not have
to come outside...It's quick,"
he said.
Such was the case of other
patrons of another drive-in
liquor store, located on East
Street South.
While these businesses
may not be as sophisticated
and technologically advanced
as fast food franchises, effec-
tive marketing or the lack
thereof, like any other busi-


ness, has a serious affect on
their operation.
The East Street South busi-
ness utilizes creative marketing
tools such as flashing lights and
lively music to attract potential
customers.
Mario Giovanoli, owner of
Winmar Wines and Spirits, has
been operating his liquor store
for more than 20 years on
Prince Charles and claims to be
the first businessperson to intro-


duce the'drive-thru liquor store
concept to New Providence.
His business started out as a
regular walk-in operation and
mushroomed when he decided
to relocate closer to the main
road. Ten years ago he pur-
chased a piece of property, just
several feet away from his first
location, but closer to the main
road on Prince. Charles Drive,
which he claims "just fit right
in, to have a drive-thru." Gio-

vanoli now caters to both walk-
in clients and drive-thru
patrons.
To obtain a licence to operate
an establishment in New Provi-
dence where alcohol is sold, a


person must be 21 years of age
or older, of good character and
must agree to run their business
within the confines of the law
and in accordance with the
Liquor Licenses Act.

Fresh start





for young





Eleutherans


GOVERNMENT'S Fresh
Start youth programme opened
in Tarpum Bay, Eleuthera last
weekend with Youth, Sports
and Housing Minister Neville
Wisdom calling for "tough
love" for Bahamian young
men.
Twelve Eleutherans enrolled
in the two-month programme
designed for 16 to 25 year olds
who are out of school, unem-
ployed, and are at risk of
engaging in unhealthy social
activities.
In this private-public sector
initiative, participants are given
training in personal develop-
ment and job readiness during
their internship with business
partners.
"Haven't you noticed," said
Mr Wisdom, "that the young
men who sit under the trees
and on the blocks, none of
them is malnourished?
"Whenever they want some-
thing to eat, the food is there.
Whenever they want a clean
set of clothes, it's provided.
And they all have a roof to go
under when they come off the
blocks or under the trees.
Haven't you noticed that they
lack for very little or nothing?
"But you know what we've
found, and it's a very alarming
situation that provision for
these young men, the reason
why they have so much is
because it is being provided by
our women mommy, girl
friend, auntie, grammy, sister
and wife."
Mr Wisdom called for a
change in attitude and encour-
aged families to practice "tough


Twelve enrol in two


month programme


l6ve to help grow our young
men as responsible citizens.
"Let our young men know
that by the sweat of their brow,
that's how they're going to eal.
Tell them 'I love you, I think
you're wonderful, but go and
get a job.'
"Tell them 'I think you're
great but it is also very impor-
tant for you to understand that
it takes money to run our home
and you need to be an active
participant, a leader in the pro-
duction of the funds that are
necessary for us to make ends
meet."
It is not good enough, said
Mr Wisdom, for families to
demonstrate their love "by con-
tinuing to provide for young
men who are not prepared to
work. There are loads of jobs
out there for young men.
"There is dignity in all work
so I want our young men to
stop the excuses and under-
stand their responsibility as
leaders in their homes.
"That same young man you
provide for will be fooled and
comforted in the belief that he
can have a free ride, that there
is and should be no account-
ability on his part to be respon-
sible.
"That's why he feels he can
lay with you and have a child

and then not be responsible for
the provision of that child. Hold
him to a position of responsi-
bility and you would be pleas-
antly surprised to see how he
responds."
Wim Steenbaker, managing
director, Eleuthera Properties,
a Fresh Start business partner,
said the economy of South
Eleuthera too has had its fresh
start as Cotton Bay Estate and
Villas and Cape Eleuthera
developments take form.
"Many jobs have already
been created in the last twelve
months," he said.
"You can see the economic
change within the community
every day. It was the objective
of our past president T Albert
Sands (late) that the success of
these projects would filter
down into the local community
and that's exactly what we're
doing."
Also attending the ceremo-
ny were South Eleuthera Mem-
ber of Parliament and Speaker
of the House of Assembly
Oswald Ingraham, Director of
Youth Autherine Turnquest,
and Depu.ty Administrator
Ivan Ferguson.

Nobel Fever:
Secrecy, speculation
surrounding prizes
* STOCKHOLM, Sweden
A FINN who helped medi-
ate peace in Indonesia is
tipped to win this year's
Nobel Peace Prize, while
bookmakers favor a Turkish
novelist for the literature
award, according to Associat-
ed Press.
But in the hyper-secretive
world of the panels that have
spent much of the year sifting
through hundreds of nomina-
tions, it's all a guessing game
until the announcements start
tumbling out on Monday with
the announcement of the
medicine prize.
Nobel-watchers rely on
complex mathematical formu-
las, statistical calculations and
pure instinct to make their
predictions, but they don't get
any hints whatsoever from
the awarding institutions in
Stockholm and Oslo, Norway.
The prizes established 111
years ago by Alfred Nobel,
the Swedish inventor of dyna-
mite, are in the categories of
literature, peace, medicine,
physics, chemistry and eco-
nomics.
The latter, many of whose
past winners are Americans,
is technically not a Nobel but
a 1968 creation of Sweden's
central bank.

Blind student is



again presented



with scholarship


FOR the second year, blind
student Alvin Forbes was
assured of his tuition for uni-
versity thanks to the generosity
of Frances Singer-Hayward:
In a special ceremony held at
the Ministry of Education in the
presence of Education Minis-
ter Alfred Sears, Ms Singer-
Hayward expressed her joy at
being able to help Alvin, whose
story, she said, represents "tri-
umph over adversity" and
whom she has taken under her
wing since his handicap was
brought to her attention two
years ago.
She said, however, that there
are many more Alvins out
there, equally deserving and
hoped that other individuals
and companies would follow
her example. "Everyone
deserves their chance to shine.
It is so desperately important
that challenged individuals, like
Alvin, be given the opportunity
to realise their full potential and
it is my life's commitment to
help to make that happen
whenever I can and encourage
others to do the same."
She, thanked Mr Sears for
giving her the opportunity to
make such a difference in
somebody's life and also
thanked Lady Henrietta St
George who is contributing to
Alvin's living costs while at uni-
versity.
Also taking the spotlight dur-
ing the event was the Ministers
Book Club, of which Ms Singer-
Hayward is the patron. The
expected visit to Nassau and
Grand Bahama by American.
author Sharon Flake was enthu-
siastically discussed. In, addition

Artist puts best forward in 300-mile




charity cycle for ex-servicemen


A LOCAL artist answered
the call of adventure when she
cycled from London to Paris to
raise funds for charity.
Nora Smith joined 250 other
cyclists on the gruelling 300-mile
11th annual Pedal to Paris, glid-
ing her aching body under the
Arc de Triomphe four days
after almost missing the start.
And she raised more than
$1,000 for the Royal British
Legion the 'Poppy Day'
organisation which promotes
the welfare, interests and mem-
ory of ex-Service people and
their families.
Like many modern day
women, Nora was busy juggling
a demanding career with par-
enting.


But with her children, Gre-
gory, 17, and Olivia, 15, former
St Andrew's School students,
now in school in London, Nora
had the urge to take on a new
challenge.
"I wanted to be open to
adventure and to accept any
challenges that came up," Nora
explained.
"For years I had been doing
things that were suitable for
kids. They have reached an age
for a little bit of independence
which allows me a very little,
too. And it was Paris! I liked
the idea of getting there by my
own effort and willpower. All
that, and I really didn't know
how hard it would be."
Nora is no stranger to the


Bahamas, particularly in art cir-
cles. She has won a strong fol-
lowing both locally and in Lon-
don, and is well-known for her
use of a wide variety of media
to express the light and colour
of the Bahamas.
Originally from England,
Nora trained as an architect and
worked in that field in England
and the Bahamas, the latter
which she's called home for 20
years.
Her husband, Douglas, is an
architect with ARCOP Ltd in
Nassau.
Some of you may have seen
Nora training in Nassau for her
300-mile journey. Cycling
around this flat island, Nora had
no idea of the challenges ahead.

RE: SENIOR ASSOCIATE/MATERIALS PLANNING


The day before the big event
took an unexpected twist.
Nora woke up in her London
home to find the front window
open, and her computer and
camera stolen. Instead of e-
mailing thank-yous to her spon-
sors, she found herself making
cups of tea for the Metropolitan
Police and fingerprint techni-
cians.
The next morning, Nora field-
ed another curve ball.
At 5.30am she arrived at the
local station to put her bike and
luggage on a train to Waterloo
to find a derailed train.
This meant no trains were
running in London and there
wasn't enough time for Nora to
cycle the 20 miles to the start.
So she rode to the end of the
Tube line in Richmond about
five or six miles away and care-
fully selected a route to a shal-
low station where she could
haul her bike up to the surface'
again to ride to the Greenwich
Observatory andthe 8am start.
"Inspired by the Dunkirk
spirit, I was darned if I'd be
defeated by British Rail. I made
it with only minutes to spare,"
chuckled Nora.
"But the good news is that I
did get all the way to Paris on
my bike. It was a fantastic expe-
rience. I know now that I must
have been mad to agree to do it
as I had no idea how hard it
would be."
Nora also,admitted she "was ,
nuts to think that I would have
time to do evocative little
watercolour sketches along the
way."
S"It was just cycle/eat/sleep for
four days and my paints were
quickly consigned to the bot-
tom of the luggage."
The cyclists rode all day long.
London to Dover was the most
difficult stretch 85 miles with
the North and South Downs in
. the way.
No hill training in Nassau


meant Nora had to make up a
strategy to get over the Downs.
She remembered a friend's
words "it's all mental"- and
that made her persevere.
"If anyone ever tells you that
Northern France is flat, spit in
their eye and call them a liar. I
wish I had!"
But there were many high
points handsome French
motor-cycle outriders, the police
in Paris stopping the traffic for
the cyclists, the perfect weather.
The French have great
respect for cyclists. One village,
which suffered terrible atroci-
ties during the War and was lib-
erated by the allies, made the
cyclists feel like heroes.
The entire village turned out
on the streets to cheer them on.
Nothing, said Nora, can com-
pare to riding into Paris at the
head of a column of 250 cyclists
(the women led the way).
"The final climb up to the
Arc de Triomphe was an extra-
ordinary experience. A real tri-
umph. "
The riders came from all
walks of life. The Welsh Sports
and Culture Minister, a QC, an

He was born and raised in Belleville, Ontario; Donald Joss
attended McGill University in Montreal where.he received a
B.Comm. in 1953 and met his future wife, Ann Hoopes.
Upon the death of his father, Stanley Joss, Don became the
President of the family owned business Black Diamond Cheese
Company. He remained the president of the company until
1.970 when the company was sold. Don was also an Alderman
of the city of Belleville from 1964 to 1967.
In 1970 he retired and moved his family to Nassau, Bahamas.
However, Don couldn't stay away from work too long as he
became to Canadian Consul in the late 1980's.
A member of the Rolls Royce Owners Club, Don was known
for his collection of classics automobiles. His most prized
autos were his 1930 Rolls Royce and 1952 Bentley. He was
also an avid stamp collector since age 7 and was a member
of the American Stamp Dealers Association and the Canadian
and American Philatelic Society for over 50 years. His extensive
life long collection was recently sold at an auction.
Don was a great father. He always played an active role in
the raising of his four'daughters. With the purchase of
"Landfall", an older Bahamian home, he involved the entire
family with the renovation. He taught his daughters the gift
of hard work and the satisfaction of a job well done.
Don spent his weekends driving his Bentley or Rolls Royce
to Lyford Cay to play golf with his friends Dicky, Jake and
Mike.
Don also loved his pets, most recently, his cat Louie and his
dog Laddie. He also loved to spend his evenings feeding his
turtle Oscar.

Home, Palmdale Avenue, Palmdale.

superintendent of police. And
Nora even met someone who
went to school with prominent
Bahamian businessman Craig
Symonette.
So, what's next for this gutsy
woman?
Nora's one of a group of 11
Bahamian and four non-
Bahamian artists who'll be
exhibiting in November in Nas-
sau.
The group show, Art Inter-
national, opens at Lyford
Manor on November 24 and
will be manned through the fol-
lowing week. The work will be
'on show until May, 2007, and
may be viewed during banking
hours, or by appointment with
Nora.
Other artists will include
Bahamians Antonius Roberts,
Dorman Stubbs, Imogene
Walkine, Livingston Pratt, Lynn
Parotti, Max Taylor, Rupert
Watkins, Sheldon Saint, Stan
Burnside and Bo Guirey.
Work will also be displayed
by Gabrielle Pool (Australia)
James Leggat (UK), Michael
Allard (Zimbabwe) and Peter
Gray (South Africa).
Nora specialises in water-
colour, torn paper collage and
3D models, and has also done a
number of large-scale murals in
Nassau. She's taught art and
designed theatre sets and won a
Dansa Award for her staging of
"The Doll's House".
No doubt, she will draw on
her London to Paris journey as
she prepares for the show.

search for

migrants

lost at sea

PUERTO RICO
San Juan
RESCUE crews on Sunday
searched for at least nine people
who went missing after a cata-
maran packed with about 60
illegal migrants capsized while
sailing to this US Caribbean ter-
ritory, officials said, according to
Associated Press.
Fifty-one migrants traveling
aboard the overloaded 30-foot
catamaran were rescued in calm
seas a few miles north of the
Dominican Republic by the US
Coast Guard, the Dominican
Navy and nearby fishing boats.
Survivors told rescuers the
boat was carrying about'60 peo-
ple when the migrants began
their voyage to cross the Mona
Passage, a perilous 80-mile-wide
stretch of water between the
Dominican Republic and Puer-
to Rico, where the Atlantic col-
lides with the Caribbean Sea.
The migrants aboard the
catamaran, which had been
reported stolen, apparently
were all Dominicans.
"The 51 survivors that have
been rescued so far are very
lucky to be alive," said Capt.
James Tunstall, commander of
US Coast Guard operations in
the eastern Caribbean.

that determine the direction of
ocean currents were being used
to search for the missing in the
shark-infested waters.
Just a few hours after the cata-
maran capsized, three migrants
were found clinging to an empty
fuel drum more than four miles
west of where the vessel over-
turned. A Coast Guard rescue
swimmer helped the three peo-
ple onto a nearby fishing boat.

Hurricane Isaac gathers


strengthen the Atlantic

Tropical storm watch issued for Newfoundland


* MIAMI
A TROPICAL storm watch
was issued for southeastern
Newfoundland un Sunday as
Hurricane Isaac moved north
in the Atlantic, forecasters said,
according to Associated Press.
At 2 p.m. EDT (1800 GMT),
Isaac had top sustained winds
near 80 mph (130 kph),; up li ll
75 mph ( 120 kph) on Saturday,'
when it became the fifth hurri-
cane of the Atlantic season, the
National Hurricane Center in
Miami said.
The ninth named storm of the
Atlantic hurricane season was
centered about 310 miles (500
kilometers) northeast of
Bermuda and 885 miles (1,425


kilometers) south-southwest of
Cape Race, Newfoundland,
forecasters said.
Isaac was moving north near
17 mph (27 kph), and a turn to
the north-northeast was expect-
ed in the next day. The storm
also was forecast to speed up
and begin weakening in the next
24 hours.
Meteorologist Daniel Brown,,
said southeastern Newfound-
land could begin experiencing
tropical storm conditions with
winds gusting near hurricane
strength beginning Monday
afternoon.
"They will get some wind and
rain," Brown said.
The Canadian Meteorologi-
cal Service issued a tropical,


storm watch for Newfound-
land's Avalon Peninsula, includ-
ing the cities of Cape Race and
St. Johns.
Tropical storms have winds
of at least 39 mph.
Brown said Isaac was not as
big or strong as Florence, whose
remnants brought.100 mph
windgusts and bands of rain to
-so.uihern Newfoundland on
Sept. 14.
Hurricane-force winds extend
25 miles ( 40 kilometers) from
Isaac's center, while tropical
storm-force winds extend up to
150 miles (240 kilometers) from
it.
The Atlantic hurricane sea-
son began June 1 and ends Nov.
30.

Agriculture opens


THE SIXTH annual
Caribbean Week of Agriculture
opens in Nassau today, hosted
by the Ministry of Agriculture
and Marine Resources and the
Inter-American Institute for
Co-operation on Agriculture.
The CWA conference, which
is in three parts, is being held
under the theme "Sustaining
Agriculture and Marine
Resources for the future."
The purpose of the CWA is
to highlight the importance of
agriculture and fisheries to the
economic, social and environ-
mental stability of rural com-
munities and to appreciate the
role of these sectors in the
national economy.
The governments of, all the
countries of the region are con-
cerned about the rising cost of
food imports and low levels of
production and productivity in
the agricultural sector. This con-
cern was expressed at the level
of Heads of Government, who
agreed on a strategy outlined
in the JAGDEO initiative to
address the major constraints
in the agricultural sector and to
provide a strategy to take

advantage of emerging oppor-
tunities in the fisheries sector.
The CWA will therefore pro-
Svide stakeholders and ministers
an opportunity to discuss the
progress of various policies and
programmes that are being
implemented as well as those
being planned under the
JAGDEO initiative; so that
there is a common vision for
these sectors.
Speaking to the press about
the CWA, Minister of Agricul-
ture and Marine Resources
Leslie Miller said the Caribbean
Week will be divided into three
components; technical meetings,
meetings of ministers "f agri-
culture and an exhibition and
culinary show.
"I am pleased to announce
that a youth workshop will take
place during the technical meet-
ings on Monday. This workshop
will provide an opportunity for
the Bahamas to share with the
region successful examples of


youth involvement in the agf'ir
culture and fisheries sectors and
also provide a forum for discus-
sion on what can be done to sup-
port young people who are inter-
ested in the agriculture and fish-
enes sectors." said Mr Miller.
"We expect presentations dur-
ing the workshop trom the North
Andros high school the Island
School in Eleuthera and the Col-
lege of the Bahamas. As a result
of this workshop, we hope that
the Bahamas can orgamse a local
chapter .if tht- ( wh bean Forum

edge the support or the Depart-
ment of Education and College
of the Bahamas in planning this
component of the meeting, said
the minister.
Other technical meetings
planned for Monday and Tue-
day will in'r lve national

The ministers of agriculture.
from the region comprise the
alliance for sustainable devii-
opment on agriculture and the
rural milieu. This alliance is sup-
ported by IICA, Caricom Sec-,
retanat, and the Food and Agri-
culture Organization. The issue.

There will be an exhibitic-,

Radisson Cable Beach Resort
that will begin on Thursday,
October 5, and will highlight
both local and regional agricul-
tural and fisheries products. The
exhibition will also allow the

in the Bahamas. The culinary
competition is sponsored by

itself. Even when asked if he
thought the incident could
affect his political career, Mr
Gibson said that he hasn't
even considered this.
"I am more concerned
now, with the fact that we
have a situation and it has
to be dealt with. In life a
teacher of mine used to say
there are no punishments
or rewards, there are just
consequences. So you suf-
fer or you enjoy the conse-
quences of your actions. I
have not even considered
that particular point as yet.
I am too busy trying to
make sure that a proper
representation of what I
think occurred is deliv-
ered," he said.
When asked about who
started the fight, both men
laughed the question off.
"Ah, Wendell you are
something else. Ah, good-
ness," Mr Gibson said.
"I don't think it mat-
ters," Mr Smith started, "it
truly doesn't matter. Who
was, or who started, or
whose comment led to any
disagreement that we had.
What is more important at
this point is that my friend
and I are here, and for
your listeners that cannot
see us, we are shaking
hands. The reality is he is
my friend, he will still be
my friend, and he will
always be my friend," he
said.
Although saying that
honesty is one of the most
important virtues that a
representative should have,
.both MPs said that they
were unaware of anything
being broken in their alter-
cation in the Cabinet
Room despite reports to
the contrary.
Speaking to persons who
were in the room after the
event, The Tribune was
told that the glass on the
mahogany table around
which the parliamentarians
sat the'next day was obvi,-.
ously broken.
"Truly I am not aware of
any table being broken. I
am not aware of anything
being broken. If-it is that
something has been bro-
ken, and especially if it was
done by any of the two of
us,
"I have not been told
that byanyone," Mr Smith
said.


Pro-PLP website



critical over brawl


FROM page one

to the public a "private matter" that took place
where the "Parliamentary Caucus of the PLP
was meeting."
In what may be seen as an unprecedented
move, the article acknowledges that there is a
general concern among senior PLP party mem-
bers over the attitude of many of the younger
male members of Parliament who, because they
were able to win seats during the party's sweep-
ing victory in 2002, "have a misplaced sense of
entitlement."
And now, as these same young PLP parlia-
mentarians prepare to seek public support in
their re-election bids, the article's writer may
have hit on a general concern among constituents
at large in saying: "there is not a bone of humili-
ty in some of them. The power appears to have
gone to their heads."
Making note of a proposed Sunday afternoon
radio appearance by both Ministers, Bahama-
suncensored.com said that "no doubt it will be a
combination of contrition and patchwork public
relations in order to dampen the public ire about
what happened."
As this matter filled local headlines last week,
the Free National Movement publicly called on
the Prime Minister for an explanation of the sit-


nation which transpired in the Cabinet office.
But the Prime Minister, in a public statement,
downplayed the matter saying: "Most of
these things are accentuated by rumours and
talk."
Over the weekend, independent MP Tennyson
Wells blasted the Free National Movement for
making "a big deal" out of the supposed brawl
and said: "They need to get serious and deal with
serious issues and stop picking at things because
one segment of the public is laughing at them."
However, one member of the public said that if
this issue is not a serious matter, then Mr Wells
ought to say what he considers to be a serious
matter.
As implied by Bahamasuncensored.com, the
general concern within the general Bahamian
community is that "two grown men, MPs at that,
can't hold theirs (tempers) in a situation where
the homicides in the country are being fed by
people who can't resolve conflicts peacefully."
Coming from Bahamasuncensored.com, the
most recent address on the "fight in the brother-
.hood" seems, surprising, as many of the sites writ-
ings have been attributed to the Minister of For-
eign Affairs Fred Mitchell;
In the past, Mr Mitchell, however, has denied
any association with the online site, which before
he became a Cabinet Minister was fredmichel-
luncensored.com.


FNM: PM's credibility



dealt grievous blow


FROM page one

ing Prime Minister Christie had
not heard about it! Or so he-
said.
"He did hear about 'some;
disagreements being'
expressed,' but nothing about
fisticuffs! He said that he had
even laughed about it with the
two MPs concerned and
expected the public to believe
that they did not tell him they
had had a fist fight!"
However, the party firmly
outlined that this is in fact "no
laughing matter."
"People will forgive their
favourite politicians a lot of
things. But the one thing they
% ill not forgqi c is\% hen a politi-,
cian takes them for fools. And
that is exactly what Mr Christie
did when he tried to cover up
this incident.
S"In the process Mr Christie,
who.has so prided himself on
his integrity and honesty, did
grievous if not fatal injury
to his credibility. Nobody
believes he did not know, and
even if he did not see any cuts
and bruises he must have

noticed that one of his MPs
couldn't use his right arm!
And, he must have seen evi-
dence of an altercation in the
Cabinet Room."
However, the party says that
in spite of these flimsy shows of
camaraderie, it is all simply a
clumsy and "frankly, foolish
attempt at covering up" the
whole fiasco.
"Mr Christie should now
change'his dance step from the
Christie Shuffle to the Electric
Slide because that is what he
and his colleagues are doing.
Everything is allowed just to
slide. The two PLP MPs who
were engaged in that brawl in
the Cabinet Room.last if-.,
Sday probably, took the r 'iie
from Prime Ninister Chrlfie
and tried to cover up the whole
thing.
"What a spectacle they made
of themselves, making a show
of walking about in public as
if nothing had happened; then
sitting together in the House
of Assembly all chummy-
chummy."
The FNM claims that a full
confession and apology from


Mr Smith, and Mr Gibson
should have been made imme-
diately to the Bahamian peo-
ple. However, it was not until
Friday that one of them, Mr
Gibson issued a statement
expressing his "unconditional"
remorse and regret.
"Trouble is that his 'unre-
served' apology and 'Uncondi-
tional' regret was not quite
unreserved and unconditional.
He did say that 'these events
declined to an unacceptable
and undignified level.'
But in the same breath he
said that those events 'have
been sensationalized, overstat-
ed.'
."When two MPs. get into a
fist fight in the Cabine t Room.
or -anywhere else, that is
already sensational news and
does not have to be sensation-
alized. If the whole thing has
been overstated, perhaps-the
two MPs should now give the
public a word-by-word and
blow-by-blow description so
the public can judge whether
the media have overstated
'those events,'" the party said.

Little hope of survivors


from Am
N BRASILIA, Brazil
MILITARY helicopters low-
ered a rescue team by rope Satur-
day into the remote Amazon jun-
gle site where an airliner slammed
into the ground, but authorities
held out little hope of finding sur-
vivors among the 155 people on
board, according to Associated
Press.
The team began clearing dense
vegetation near the wreckage site
so a helicopter could land.
"There's little indication of sur-
vivors, but we won't rule out the
possibility," Brazil Air Force Brig.
Gen. Antonio Gomes Leite Filho
said in a news conference Saturday
evening. "We haven't fully
explored the crash scene, it's a
very complicated area."
Officials suspended the search
after sundown Saturday, citing dif-
ficulties to access the location at

before the crash of Gol airlines
Flight 1907. He said the Gol flight
from the jungle city of Manaus en
route to Brasilia and Rio de
Janeiro struck the ground traveling
at more than 300 mph.
"At that speed it is highly
unlikely any survivors will be
found," Pereira said.

Two Sept 11 hijackers appear


in 2000 video posted on


British newspaper Web site


LONDON

MOHAMED Atta, the
ringleader of the Sept. 11 ter-
ror attacks, smiles and jokes
with another hijacker before
the two turn serious and
speak intently to a camera in
a video posted Sunday on a
British newspaper's Web site,
according to Associated Press.
The Sunday Times said the
video, which was dated Jan.
18, 2000 about a year and a
half before the attacks against
the United States was
made in Afghanistan for
release after the men's deaths.
For more than 30 minutes,
the video shows Atta, who
flew one of,the planes that
crashed into the World Trade
Center, and ZiadJarrah, who
piloted United Airlines flight
93 that crashed into a Penn-
sylvania field, both alone and
together.

Images
The newspaper said the
hourlong video was made at
an al-Qaida tiaining'camp in
Afghanistan., It includes
images of Osama bin Laden
speaking to.supporters in
Kandahar, Afghanistan: A
.time stamp indicated that
footage was shot on Jan. 8,
2000.
It has no sound, and the
newspaper quoted a "U.S.
source" who was not identi-
fied as saying that lip readers
had been unable to decipher
what the men were saying.
At times in the video, the
two men look relaxed, laugh-
ing and chatting together
before they grow serious and
speak directly into the cam-
era. At one point, they lean
over a document the newspa-
per identifies as a will, study-
ing it intently and sometimes
pointing to specific sections
:and conimenting to one
,. another.
The. Sunday.Times said it
had obtained the video


"through a previously tested
channel" but gave no further
details.
It shows Atta and Jariah
sitting on the floor, and alter-
nates between'tight sh6ts
including only their faces atid
wider images showing.what
appears to be a gun propped
upon the wall next to them.
Both men have full, dark
beards. Atta wears a dark
sweater or sweatshirt with a
zipped-up collar; while Jarrh'
is in a long white robe.

Footage
. '
The Virginia-based Intel-
Center, which monitors ter-
rorism communications, said
the video was likely raw
footage that was to be used
in a future' ide.i produced by
al-Qaida's media arm, as-
Sahab.
It pointed to a similar video
released on the eye of the
.fifth anniversary of the Sept.
11 attacks- this year, which
was, titled "Knowdledge is For
Acting Upon The Manhattan
Raid" and was'stamped with
the as-Sahab emblem.
That video showed bin
Laden meeting with col-
leagues in a mountain camp
believed to be in Afghanistan,
and it included the last testa-
ment of two bther Sept. 11
hijackers, Wail al-Shehri and
Hamza al-Ghamdi.
All previously released
9-11 hijacker last wills
have been released in this for-
mat, according to IntelCen-
ter.:
"A- few ye6rs ago Osama
bin Laden w's asked about
when he would release the
last will of M6ohammed Atta'
and he said thdt he was saving
it for a special occasion.
"It is highly unlikely\ that
al-Qaida wanted the material
to be released in this manner
and it is not consistent-with
any previous 'release," Intel-
Center chief Ben Venzke said
in an e-mailel statement.

Pope encourages Christians and



Muslims to keep good relations in Iraq


* CASTEL GANDOLFO, Italy
POPE Benedict XVI on Sun-
day encouraged Christians and
Muslims in Iraq to continue
their centuries-old brotherly ties
as he prayed for peace and har-
mony in that violence-wracked
country, according to Associat-
ed Press.
Benedict told pilgrims at his
summer residence in Castel
Gandolfo that he had "the joy"
on Saturday to meet with the
Chaldean patriarch of Baghdad,
Emmanuel III Delly.
Delly has been seeking the
release of a priest who was kid-
napped in Baghdad, and the
pope also has appealed publicly
for his release. The Rev. Hanna
Saad Sirop, who is director of
the Theology Department at
Babel College, was abducted


Aug. 15 as be left Mass cele-
brating the Assumption holi-
day. Benedict made no mention
of the case Sunday.
Christians make up just 3 per-
cent of Iraq's 26 million peo-
ple. The major Christian groups
include Chaldean-Assyrians and
Armenians, with small numbers
of Roman Catholics.
Benedict said the patriarch
briefed him on "the tragic real-
ity that must be faced daily by
the dear population of Iraq,
where Christians and Muslims
live together for 14 centuries as
children of the same land."
"I hope that these ties of
brotherhood between them do
not slacken, while, with senti-
ments of my spiritual closeness,
I invite allto join me in asking
Almighty God for the gift of
peace and of harmony for that


martyred country," Benedict
said during his traditional Sun-
day appearance.
Benedict has been pressing
for dialogue between Chris-
tianity and Islam.
,Remarks
He stepped up that call lately
after coming under siege from
Muslim protests over a quota-
tion from a Medieval Byzantine
emperor about Islam and vio-
lence. The remarks came during
a Sept. 12 speech about faith
and reason which he gave at a
university where he used to
teach in his native Germany.
Benedict has said that his
words were misunderstood and
that he was sorry that Muslims
were offended.

Rocket launched from

New Mexico spaceport found

in desert after crashing


E UPHAM, New Mexico
A ROCKET that was the
first launched from a com-
mercial spaceport in New
Mexico and the first to crash
- has been found in the desert,
company officials said Satur-
day, according to Associated
Press.
The 20-foot (6-meter)
SpaceLoft XL rocket was
found nearly a week after it
wobbled and went off course
seconds after takeoff from
Spaceport America in Upham
on Monday afternoon.
The unmanned rocket
crashed Monday in the rugged
southern New Mexico desert
after reaching about 40,000
feet (12,000 meters), well short
of UP Aerospace's goal of
sending the rocket into sub-
orbital space, about 70 miles


(113 kilometers) above Earth.
The company has not dis-
closed the exact site of the
crash.
Eric Knight, the company's
CEO, said radar data from the
nearby White Sands Missile
Range, the intended landing
site, helped searchers find
what was left of the rocket.
The cause of the crash
remained a mystery, Knight
said.
"Now that we have the
rocket we can'start doing our
anomaly investigation," he
said.
A crew from the Connecti-
cut company had searched the
desert by air and on foot for
several days.
Knight said it was unclear
Saturday how the rocket,
whose condition he did not
describe, would be removed


from the desert. Recover Will
take a few days, he said.
Plans for a second launch
Oct. 21 are still on, Knight
said.
Monday's launch was the
first at the state-funded Space-
port America, about 95 miles
north of El Paso, Texas.
The site is also the proposed
home of a $225 million space-
port where Richard Branson,
the British billionaire founder
of the Virgin Group, has
announced plans to base a
space tourism company.

Gun battles break out between Hamias militia, police loyal to Abbas


* GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip

MILITIAMEN from the
ruling Hamas opened fire on
government workers protest-
ing their unpaid salaries on
Sunday, touching off gunbat-
ties with security forces loyal
to President Mahmoud
Abbas. Seven people were
killed in the violence, accord-
ing to Associated Press.
After the deadly protest in


Seven people killed in violence


Gaza City, dozens of sup-
porters from Abbas' Fatah
Party retaliated by ransack-
ing and torching the empty
Cabinet building in the West
Bank city of Ramallah. The
Fatah supporters had earlier
marched through the city, the
seat of the Palestinian gov-


ernment, burning tires and
shouting, "Hamas, out, out."
Hamas Radio accused
Abbas of stoking the unrest
and dividing the Palestinian
people. It also attacked his
efforts to pressure Hamas to
recognize Israel, a move that
could help to ease crushing


international sanctions that"
have prevented the govern-
ment from paying salaries.
SAbbas ordered police, most
6f whom are loyal to Fatah,.
iot to take part in demon-
strations. On Saturday, the
lamas-led:; government
deployed all 3,000 Hamas
militiamen across the Gaza
Strip to stop the widening
protests.

j Struggle

Hamas set up its 3,500
member militia in Nlay after
losing a power struggle with
Abbas for control of Pales-,
tinian security forces. Since
then, violence has sporadical-
ly broken out between
Hamas' militia-- which falls
under the control of the
Hamas interior minister -
and the official police force. '
The most serious clash
between them on Sunday
took place near the parlia-
ment building in Gaza City.
'i '' '


After'the crowd of protesters
there swelled to include hun-
dreds of police arid civilians
Hamas militiamen rushed in;
Firing guns- and'anti-tank
launchers, and lobbing
grenades.
Two peoplewere killed,
including a 15-year-old boy;
and at least 75 were wounded,
hospital officials sAid. 7:
Militiamen anc security
personnel including body--
guards for Abbas
exchanged fire on 4wo of the
main streets, of Gaza City
near parliament, andd.gunmen
from both sides took positions
gn nearby rooftops.
Protesters. scattered, and
schoolchildren sought protec-
tion by covering their. heads
With their schoolbags.
SThe clashes later spilled
over to an area nearthe pres-
ident's residence. Hamas mili-
tiamen scrambled up to the
rooftop of the nearby Agri-
culture Ministry and began
firing on the presidential
guard, killing one.


Hospital officials later
reported a three others killed
in the violence Sunday, and
security officials said an offi-
cer whose car came under fire
also died.
"We are going to beat with 1
iron fists all those elements
who are trying to sabotage the
election process of our peo-
ple, those who are trying to
destroy our public properties
and close the streets," said
Islam Shahwan, a spokesman
for the militia.
Shahwan said 25 security
personnel were arrested by
Hamas militiamen.
"Nothing can justify this,'
violence," said Tawfik Abu
Khoussa, a Fatah spokesman,
blaming the government.
The chief of national secu-
rity in southern Gaza, Jamal
Kayed, said militiamen
attacked both his force's
headquarters and its officers. j-
Ghazi Hamad, a govern- '9
ment spokesman, said the vio- A.
lence was "regrettable," but
that the Hamas force acted,
with restraint and was'
attacked by the demonstra-
tors.

Protest

"The protest today was.
beyond acceptable legal
norms and turned truly into n
lawlessness," he said. ;:
After the violence in Gaza b
City, Fatah protesters in
Ramallah broke into the Cab-
inet building there and set fire ;
to a second-floor office. ,r
The militants, forced out by
the flames and smoke, then
moved to the nearby Educa- 'K
tion Ministry and torched, a
car on the way. i
Since Hamas ousted Fatah
from power earlier this year,
Israel and the West have
withheld tax payments and -:
foreign aid to try to force a
Hamas to moderate.
Protests against the gov-
ernment have grown as the 2
poverty deepened. In an F
effort to end the economic :o
embargo, Hamas officials' i
have talked of forming a -_'
coalition government with':5
Fatah,- but.. the efforts .
foundered because of Hamas', ?
refusal to recognize Israel's
right to exist.

INTERATIALNEW


Thai military council




chooses retired army




commander to be




new prime minister


Follows announcement

of temporary constitution


* BANGKOK, Thailand
RETIRED army com-
mander Gen. Surayud Chu-
lanont was sworn in Sun-
day as interim prime min-
ister following the
announcement of a tempo-
rary constitution that
reserved considerable pow-
ers for Thailand's military
coup makers, according to
Associated Press:
The announcement, fol-
lowing his endorsement by
the country's King Bhumi-
bol Adulyadej, was widely
expected. The cabinet is
expected to be announced
later this week.
Surayud told reporters
Sunday that his priorities
would be tackling the
ongoing Muslim insurgency
in southern Thailand and
bringing unity to a country
divided by the policies of
his ousted predecessor,
Thaksin Shinawatra.

Politics
"It was injustice that
caused problems in politics
and the south," Surayud
said referring to Thaksin
regime and the Muslim
insurgency. "I urge every-
body to help solve the two
problems and unity is
needed to deal with them."
Surayud, who spent 40
years in the military, is
seen as someone who could
help stabilize the political
situation following the
Sept. 19 coup.
"Gen. Surayud has been
trusted to become a new
prime minister," said coup
leader Gen. Sondhi Boon-
yaratkalin, reading from a
royal command. "The king
has appointed him to
administer the country
from now on."
Sondhi has said the new
prime minister and govern-
ment will run the country,
and fresh elections are
expected to be held as ear-
ly as October 2007.
Surayud, 63, accompa-
nied by his wife, stood at


attention in a white mili-
tary uniform alongside six
other coup leaders at Gov-
ernment House in the Thai
Koo Fa building. A wall-
sized, portrait of the king
was hung on the wall.
During: his military
career, Surayud earned
praise for his deft handling
of the sensitive border with
embattled Cambohdia dur-

When Cummings continued with
the ten of spades, West had a difficult
problem. He couldn't spare a club,
which would make dummy's nine a
trick, so he had to discard a heart or
a diamond.
Recognizing that a heart discard
would allow declarer to play a heart
to the king and ruff a heart to estab-
lish the nine as a trick, West parted
with a diamond fervently hoping
East had the K-J of diamonds.
East had good diamonds, but
they weren't quite good enough.
Cummings led the eight of diamonds
to the,.ace, picking up the queen
along the way, and returned a dia-
monditoward his J-9. East won with
the king. but that was the only trick
the defenders could get.

Government withdraws




lawyer exam undertaking


* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
The Government has with-
drawn the undertaking it
gave not to conduct exam-
inations of Bahamian
attorneys to see whether
they are complying with this nation's
anti-money; laundering regime, The Tri-
bune has learned.
Government sources confirmed to
this newspaper that the undertaking,
given in response to the legal challenge
mounted against the Bahamian finan-
cial services regulatory regime by attor-
neys Maurice Glinton and Leandra
Esfakis, had been "rescinded".
The undertaking had guaranteed that


the Compliance Commission, Inspector
of Financial and Corporate Services
Providers, and their agents would not
attempt to conduct examinations of
attorneys and their office files until the
courts had ruled on the substantive
issues raised by Mr Glinton and Ms
Esfakis.
Mr Glinton was said to be out of the
country when The Tribune called seek-
ing comment, while Ms Esfakis was on
vacation.
The decision to withdraw the under-
taking is understood to have come
shortly after the Caribbean Financial
Action Task Force (CFATF) visited
the Bahamas to evaluate this nation's
anti-money laundering, anti-terror
financing and Know Your Customer


(KYC) regulatory regime.
Sources told The Tribune that the
CFATF, which is effectively the region-
al affiliate for the Paris-based Finan-
cial Action Task Force (FATF), the
body that blacklisted the Bahamas in
2000 for alleged deficiencies in its anti-
money laundering regime, asked sev-
eral questions about the
Glinton/Esfakis case and its progress
during their visit.
Attorneys who hold money on behalf
of clients are treated as 'financial insti-
tutions' under the Financial Transac-
tions Reporting Act, but the undertak-
ing has meant the Compliance Com-
mission and its agents cannot go into
their offices and examine them for
KYC compliance.


CFATF evaluators would therefore
have recognized that the Bahamas has
been unable to implement one aspect of
its anti-money laundering regime, even
though the reasons behind this were
sound due to the ongoing court action.
Mr Glinton and Ms Esfakis first file
their action in 2001, but the merits of
the action have yet to be heard by the.
Supreme Court. They and the Attorney
General's Qffice are currently in the
process of 'settling the record', identi-
fying the main issues to be argued
before the court and the documents
used.

Battle to affect 'conduct' of all investments


1,Fcsin ntera EC=rss


* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
THE :Bahamas' risk-based
approach to anti-money laun-
dering has brought this nation
"into line with international
best practices" and enabled
financial services institutions
to focus their resources on the
"real" risks, the Compliance
Commission's inspector said.
Stephen Thompson told a
Bahamas Institute of Char-
tered Accountants (BICA)
seminar that the late 2003
amendments to the Financial
Transactions Reporting Act
had ended the prescriptive
approach to Know Your Cus-
tomer (KYC) information
gathering, allowing financial
institutions to assess how much
due :diligence they needed to
undertake on individual cus-
tomers.
As a result, the type and
amount of documentation
Bahamian financial institutions
needed to gather on individ-
ual clients for KYC verifica-
tion depended on the per-


ceived money laundering risk
these people presented.
Mr Thompson said: "What
the amendments did was allow
for a risk-based approach to
anti-money laundering.
"We as regulators are not
saying you must get everything
on the list. We've moved away
from that. What we are saying
is that now, as a financial insti-
tution there is certain basic
information you must secure,,
and get additional information
based on risk tolerance of the
company.
"How much risk is your
organisation willing to
accept?"
Mr Thompson said the Com-
pliance Commission and other
regulators knew "that the cost
of doing business in the
Bahamas is extremely high",
so financial institutions needed
to "get a proper return" on the
funds used for anti-money
laundering safeguards.
"The scarce resources we

THE outcome of the legal
challenge to the $175 million
Great Guana Cay project will
impact "how dozens of foreign
developments in the
Bahamas...... will be conduct-
ed", with the attorney repre-
senting its opponents \ warning
that Bahamians havg.several
legal routes to fight such
investments.


Fred Smith, attorney for the
SSave Guana Cay Reef Associ-
ation, told this weekend's Save
the Bahamas Conference that
Bahamians could mount either
public or private law chal-
lenges to prevent or reduce the
size of investment projects
impacting them.
Referring to the dispute
between the Association on
one side, and the Government
and developers, California-
based Discovery Land Conm-


pany, on the other, Mr Smith
said: "The outcome of this case
ultimately affects how dozens
of foreign developments in the
Bahamas representing, alleged-
ly, billions of dollars of invest-
ments, where the Government
of the Bahamas has entered
into what have come to be
known as Heads of Agree-
ments, will be conducted.

THE committee in
charge of the Bahamas
Telecommunications Com-
pany's (BTC) pension fund
will this week start inter-
viewing Bahamian private
sector investment managers
to determine who will man-

process that should be com-
pleted "some time in the

Gregory Bethel. BTC's

that BTC's Board of Direc-

"So we will have all the
asset managers in the
Bahamas invited to take

they meet the minimum
standards," Mr Bethel said.

Banks told: Plan in advance
for disaster relocation


By NEIL HARTNELL
'Tribune Business Editor'
THE Central Bank of the
Bahamas is planning to pro-
duce draft guidelines for its
licensees on Business Conti-
nuity Plans "in the next cou-
ple of months", a leading offi-
cial said, warning that Bahami-
an banks needed to make prior
arrangements with foreign reg-
ulators if they planned to set-
up abroad in the event of dis-
aster.
Michael Foot; the inspector
of banks and trust companies,
saidthe_submissionL of. draft
Business Continuity guidelines
to the Bahamian financial ser-
vices industry was "probably
long overdue".
The Business Continuity
Plans developed by Bahamian
bank and trust companies need
-to be approved by the Central
- Bank, Mr Foot told a Bahamas
Financial Services Board
(BFSB) seminar on disaster
recovery, adding that the pro-
tection of client data was key.


The Bahamas "makes a big
thing" about the confidentiali-
ty of depositor and investor
information, Mr Foot said,
warning that banks and trust
companies needed to ensure
this was safeguarded in the
e'ent that such data was held
on computer servers in other
countries.
He added that the Central
Bank wanted data held abroad
on Bahamian bank and trust
clients to be placed on a sepa-
rate server, with only pre-
approved persons having
access to this information.
"Bahamian confidentiality is
important to us in the Central
Bank, and probably the single
biggest arta where we raise
questions," Mr Foot said.
He urged Bahamian banks
and trust companies who
planned to relocate their oper-
ations to another jurisdiction
in the event of a disaster such
as hurricane to hold talks with
regulators in their chosen
country,."to ensure everything
is as smooth as possible".

investors Tip of the Week

SP/E (Price/Earnings) Ratio

THE P/E ratio is the most
common measure of how
expensive a stock is. The P/E
ratio is equal to a stock's mar-
ket capitalisation divided by
its after-tax earnings over a 12-
month period. This period is,
usually the previous 12 months,
but occasionally is the current
or forward period.
The higher the P/E ratio, the
more the market is willing to
pay for each dollar of annual
earnings. Companies with high
P/E ratiosare more likely to
be considered 'risky' invest-
ments than those with low P/E
ratios, since a high P/E ratio
signifies high expectations.
Comparing PIE ratios is most
valuableafor companies with-
in the same industry.

Investor:


Jamaica positions


itself as tourism


A DEVELOPER with
planned investments in the
Bahamas said the Jamaican
government's investment in
infrastructure and other pro-
jects had caused it to look at
the Caribbean nation as the
region's next tourist hot spot.
The Tavistock Group last
Thursday linked up with the
Jamaican government to bring
this vision to life, signing a
50/50 joint venture agreement
to develop the Harmony Cove
resort destination.
The planning phase for iHar-
mony Cove will take several
years to complete, but the
Tavistock Group plans to
break ground on the project
by 2009. It will be completed
over a 10-year period.
When completed, Harmony
Cove will feature three cham-
pionship golf courses, world-
class spa and fitness centres,
luxury residences, water parks,
an equestrian centre, a large-
scale marina with shops,
restaurants, nightclubs and a
wide range of amenities cele-
brating the best of Jamaica's
culture and natural beauty.
The Jamaican government
is spending over $1 billion on
highways to link the country's
airports to major resort desti-
nations, while Montego Bay's
airport is undergoing renova-
tions and expansion to cope
with the tourism industry's
growth.
A multi-use cricket stadium
is also being built outside Mon-
tego Bay.
The Tavistock Group, which
is the holding firm for invest-
ments made by Lyford Cay bil-
lionaire Joe Lewis, is the main
shareholder in Park Ridge
Securities Corporation,.the
developer behind the proposed
$1.4 billion Albany project'for
southwestern New Providence.
Jason Callender; of the Tavi-
stock Group, told The Tribune
the company was ready to
break ground on Albany
almost immediately upon the
conclusion of a Heads of.
Agreement with the Bahamian

government.
He added: "We are poised
to' create hundreds, and ulti-
mately thousands, of jobs for
Bahamians. We have been
ready for months, and are
eager to begin construction of
what promises to "be a land-
mark development for the
Bahamas. "We have been
working closely with the. Gov-
ernment and the Prime. Min-
ister to ensure we do the right
thing for the Bahamas, and as
a Bahamian myself, I am
extremely proud of what we
propose to create, as we are
taking things to another level.
"Once the Government:.
gives us the green light, the
direct and indirect opportuni-
ties for Bahamians will be both
immediate and extremelN pos-
,itive. We always do what we
say we are going to do, and we
ihld our communities to the
highest standards, which get-,


erally exceeds the expectations
of our residents and our
employees."
Of the Tavistock Group's
involvement in Jamaica, Mr
Callender said the Jamaican
government desired to become
the Caribbean's leading
tourism destination.
,He said: "They are very pas-
sionate and committed people,
and the Jamaican Government
has been a pleasure to work
with. They were most gracious
and accommodating. I look
forward to being a part of what
will be a transformational
event in Jamaican tourisxmhis-
tory." ..- .
The agreement to develop
Harmony Cove, a 2,200 acre
property, was sighed between
the Tavistock Group and Har-
monisation Ltd, the Jamaican
government-owned company:
that is its joint venture part-
ner.

sending these funds at real

Thompson said.
"It is much better for your
institution to focus on mon-
ey laundering risks, rather
than divert funds to other
areas."
Mr Thompson said the
switch to a risk-based KYC


and anti-money laundering
approach was designed to
give Bahamian financial ser-

leeway" and allow them to
"ease up" on the due dili-
gence applied to long-staid-

He added that "to some

mittee is looking at it, and is in
discussions with the trustee,
Ansbacher (Bahamas)."
Among the private sector
investment managers likely to
be invited to bid, make pre-
sentations and have discussions
with the pension committee,
are Fidelity, Colina Financial
Advisors, Providence Advi-
sors, Benchmark (Bahamas)
and Colonial Group.
The latter owns the Atlantic
Medical and Security & Gen-
eral Insurance companies in
the Bahamas.
Several sources had told The
Tribune that the asset alloca-
'tion mix was likely to be split
four ways, with Fidelity and
Colina each getting 30 per
cent, and Providence Advisors
and Benchmark getting 20 per
cent each.
However, Mr Bethel said the
asset allocation split had not
been decided. He added:
"That's only a rumour. All of
the players will be involved in'
it, and this committee will be-:
looking at it in earnest, starting
this week.
"What they will do is follow
the National Insurance Board
and Bahamas Electricity Cor-
poration, and make an alloca-
tion to each of the pension
managers."
Its management had previ-
ously been split between Impe-
rial Life and Colina, but when
the latter's insurance affiliate
acquired Imperial Life, Coli-
na was left as sole manager.
Mr Bethel emphasised that
he had never been a member
or involved in the BTC pen-
sion committee's deliberations,
due to potential conflicts of
interest with his executive post
at Fidelity.
"I have abstained, and I
have always removed myself
from this issue," he told The
Tribune.


The pension committee,
which is headed by Danny
Strachan, a BTC director and
former FINCO executive,
comprises Board members,
officials from the workers'
trade union, the Bahamas
Communications and Public
Officers Union (BCPOU), and
Retirees' Association repre-
sentatives.
The BTC pension fund is
one of the largest institutional
pools of money in the
Bahamas, and is a major
investor in various companies


and sectors of the economy.
BTC's 2004 annual report,
though, showed that the pen-
sion fund had a deficit of some
$72.653 million, meaning that
its total assets of $146.732 mil-
lion were less than its project-
ed $219.385 million in obliga-
tions to current and future
retirees.
Pension
However, Mr Bethel said the
pension committee was engag-
ing an actuary to study the plan


and report on its funding situ-
ation.
"This committee is appoint-
ing an actuary to do a report,
and it is being co-ordinated by
the trustee, which is Ansbach-
er. [The actuary will] look at
the accrued benefits, and then
we will know."
BTC's pension plan is a
defined benefit plan, meaning
that the sums retirees receive is
calculated from a formula
based on their years of service
and position held at retire-
ment.

"Fundamentally, the issue
for us in the Family Islands is,
will the central government be
able to dictate what is to hap-
pen in the Family Islands with-
out reference to the relevant
laws or the wishes of Family
Islanders, or will the Govern-
ment be held accountable to
respect the laws of the
Bahamas and respect the
locals?
"Family Islanders, their tra-
ditions, and their environments
are not for sale at any price.
We are not colonies of Nas-
sau. We are part of the 'Com-
monwealth of the islands of
the Bahamas', not 'the Com-
monwealth for Nassau'."
On the public law side, Mr
Smith said, central and local
government decisions could be
challenged via judicial review,
as the Association had done
on Guana Cay.
Judicial review challenges
were successful where the
applicant could show that gov-
ernment decisions were unfair,
not arrived at by proper pro-
cedure, or were "irrational".
Mr Smith said developers
needed numerous government
permits to bring their projects
to fruition, including those
from the Investments Board,


"The outcome of this case
ultimately affects how dozens of
foreign developments in the Bahamas
representing, allegedly, 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."

tal impact of any proposed
developments to persuade
the court that the granting of
approval for any particular
development was irrational."
SHe indicated that a better
judicial review approach was
to argue that the process
adopted by the Government
in reaching its conclusions was
unfair.
"There must be adequate
public consultation on relevant
issues, both at the local and.
central government approval
processes," Mr Smith said.
"Where there has been fail-
ure to provide interested par-
ties with an opportunity to be
heard, or where the Govern-


ment has simply refused to lis-
ten to the public, this might
form a basis for a challenge."
But private law challenges
to investment projects, Mr
Smith said, would have to be
mounted by those affected by
them, such as landowners or
residents living nearby.
"Such persons could perhaps
seek to prevent development
on the grounds that its con-
struction or operation would
constitute the tort of nui-
sance," Mr Smith said.
"In order to make good such
a claim, they would have to
demonstrate either that aspects
of the development would,
have a direct detrimental effect
on their property for exam-
ple, through the leeching of
chemicals through the ground
as a result of some activity, or
the discharge of oil or sewage
arising at a marina- or that a
development would unduly
interfere with that person in.
the comfortable and conve-i
nient enjoyment of their land.
"The latter would fall to be
determined having regard to
all of the surrounding circum-
stances, including the present.
conditions of the property." i

mits via judicial review.

area, and any persons objecting

expressed concerns that the
case being brought by Mr Glin-
ton and Ms Esfakis was caus-
ing unwanted attention to be
focused on the Bahamas.
James Smith, minister of
state for finance, said one rea-
son why the FATF continued
monitoring the Bahamas after
finishing this process with oth-
er countries was because of the
legal action seeking to over-
turn the financial services reg-
ulatory regime.
Mr Glinton and Ms Esfakis
are challenging, on constitu-
tional grounds, the 11 laws
enacted in December 2000 in
response to the Financial
Action Task Force (FATF)
blacklisting that now comprise
the Bahamas financial services
regulatory regime.
'The central thrust of their
cse is that the Financial
Tiansactions Reporting Act,
oie of the 11 laws, violates the
constitutional right of attor-
n y/client privilege.
This right provides for all
fcrms of communication
between an attorney and his
clients to be confidential, but
tle Financial Transactions
Reporting Act's Know Your
Customer (KYC) require-
nwnts mandate that Compli-
ance Commission agents
iMpect an attorney's client files ,
td ensure he is complying with
tp


the Act and its regulations.
According to Mr Glinton
and Ms Esfakis, these inspec-
tions on behalf of the Compli-
ance Commission and Inspec-
tor of Financial and Corporate
Services Providers "abrogate
the individual's constitutional
right of confidentiality as we
have understood it in common
law tradition".
The withdrawal of the
undertaking is likely to mean
that Bahamian attorneys will
have to undergo inspections by
the Compliance Commission
and its agents, who are mem-
bers of the Bahamas Institute
of Chartered Accountants
(BICA).
Stephen Thompson, the
Compliance Commission's
inspector, told a BICA seminar
last week that "a lot of law
firms voluntarily submitted to
on-site examinations" when
the injunction was in place.
On the CFATF evaluation,
which is due to be formally
completed and released in
October/November 2006, Mr
Thompson said: "Based on
what we've seen so far, I sug-
gest there's not too much cause
for concern.
"I feel as though financial
institutions in the Bahamas
have largely been compliant
with most international stan-
dards."
Mr Glinton previously told
The Tribune that the battle.
,over. attorney/client privilege
was important for the well-


being of the Bahamian econo-
my and its investment climate,
as foreign investors would
want the confidence and cer-
tainty that this nation upheld
the rule of law and its consti-
tution before placing their
money here.
Absent this, investors would
be more inclined to take their
investments elsewhere
Mr Glinton added: "Legal
professional privilege is at least
representative of one factor as
far as the foreign investor is
concerned. If he's coming into
this jurisdiction, he must be
able to take confidence that
the rule of law is upheld."
He pointed out that c-',Irts
in the UK and Canada, and
other Commonw health and
common law countries, had all
handed down rulings in recent
years upholding the principle
of attorney/client privilege in
the face of increasing KYC
demands.
This again raises the spectre
that with a withdrawn under-
taking, and Compliance Com-
mission inspections set to go
ahead, the Bahamas will imple-
ment and be held to far
higher standards than most
FATF members.
One source said: "It is our
view, and those of other juris-
dictions, that the playing field
is not level.
"All that we ask is that all
parties are treated equally at
tle table, and evaluated by Ke
sam ec i ii.'1"i -. p ...
