CEO who helped create

Atlantis with father dies

in helicopter crash in

Dominican Republic


* By JOHN MARQUIS
BUTCH KERZNER. who
with his father Sol created the
Atlantis dream for the
Bahamas, was killed yesterday
in a helicopter crash in the
Dominican Republic
He was with one other pas-
senger and two pilots on the air-
craft when it just "tell from the
'sky" in bad weather, according
to reports.
The news stunned his Nassau
friends and associates as they
remembered "the great guy
with great vision" who helped
his father revamp the Bahamian
economy in the 1990s,
Last night, a business analyst
said: "It's a massive, major loss.
It's true to say that, without Sol
and Butch Kerzner, the
Bahamas' economic surge ten
years ago might never have hap-
pened."
Close friends of the man
whose "ordinary bloke"
demeanour concealed enor-
mous business know-how were
comforting his wife Vanessa as
Atlantis executives tried to take
in the full impact of the tragedy.
Butch, 42, also leaves two
children son Tai, nine, and
'daughter Kailin, five and is
survived by his mother, Mrs
Maureen Adler of New York,
brother Brandon and sisters
Beverley, Andrea and Chantal.
One friend said: "jt's hit all of
us really hard. We are still shak-
ing. He was like a son to us."
Butch, president and chief


executive of Kerzner Interna-
tional, was in the Dominican
Republic to investigate the pos-
sibility of an exclusive One and
Only Club there.
He was with a business friend
in one of t\%o helicopters visiting
possible ieort sites w hen thci\
hit inclement weather. Accord-
ing to reports, the smnialler of the
two aircraft just "fell from the
skyv", killing all on board.
SolKerzner. ho was in Lon-
don-when he heard the news,
was last night flying directly to
the Dominican Repubic before
returning to the Bahamas.
Butch's fellow passenger in
the doomed aircraft was named
as Delio Luis Gonzalez. They
uere looking at potential devel-
opment sites when the tragedy
occurred. Mr Gonzalez also
leaves a family wife Carola
and a si.\-mont h-old son.
For the Bahamas, Butch
Kerzner's death means not just
the loss of a likeable and
extremely able entrepreneur,
but also the man who was effec-
tively the future of the Kerzner
business.
While Atlantis was very much
Sol Kerzner's vision, it was
Butch who in recent years took
on the everyday running of their
expanding resort empire.
He and his father recently
engaged in a $4 billion buy-out
to take the business off the New
York Stock Exchange into pri-
vate ownership.

* By JAMAAL DAWKINS
ARAWAK CAY vendors
are furious over an alarming
build-up of trash behind their
stalls which they say has
become a health hazard and a
threat to tourism.
Usually unseen by visitors
who frequent the strip of
restaurant and bars are grow-
ing piles of rotting food and
garbage, However, the situa-
tion has become so bad that
even tourists have begun to
notice.
'"Ithnk the smell is creating

ment a'ske eat our food. I am
a freq'fent visitor to the
Bahamas, especially Arawak
Cay because I love the food,
but the smell is taking away
from the experience," one
Canadian visitor told The Tri-
bune.
The vendors say they have
not been provided with ade-
quate means of disposing of
the trash.
"The government needs to
come and do something about
the garbage in the back
because it is giving the


Bahamas bad publicity and
we need the tourists to come
here since tourism is our main

industry," said one.
"The garbage is also har-
bouring rats and not only the
tourists are affected, the
Bahamian people are also
affected, so this problem must
be dealt with," he added.
Another vendor said:
"Arawak Cay smells like
sewage and someone needs
to definitely do something
about it. If no one does any-
thing about it and the garbage
continues t9 grow, it will
develop into an even bigger
problem."
"Whoever is in charge
needs to step up and handle
the situation before we lose
the business of the tourists."
A Bahamian, eating lunch
at one of the stalls, also had
comments on the trash situa-
tion.
"I eat lunch out here every
day and I usually sit out in the
front but because of the smell
I have to take my food back
to the office. The smell is a
problem that must be solved
expeditiously because of how
important tourism is to us. We
have to do a better job of sell-
ing our country because
Arawak Cay is a tourist
attraction.
"If I was in a foreign coun-
try and I went to a restaurant
and I smelled that scent, I
would jump right back on the
plane, so the government or
whoever should clean this
place up right avay."
The Tribune attempted to
speak with Director of Envi-
ronmental Health Ron Pin-
der about the matter several
times yesterday. However, he
was said to be unavailable.

CEO who helped

create Aflantis

with fathller dies in

helicopter crash

FROM page one

And he was the man who
in future would have con-
trolled not only the compa-
ny's Paradise Island resort,
which employs 6,000 Bahami-
ans, but also new resort and
casino properties in Dubai,
Singapore and Britain.
Butch took over as chief
executive in January, 2004,
succeeding his father, who
remained chairman. .For eight
years before that, Butch was
the company's president.
Eric B Siegel, a Kerzner
board member, said at the
time: "As president, Butch
has led the company through
a period of growth and prof-
itability, while Sol has
focused most of his time on
the conceptualisation and
development of new projects.
"Butch shares Sol's vision
and passion for our business.
His in-depth knowledge of
the company, combined with
his overall leadership and
business acumen, makes him
the ideal person to lead the
company through our next
major growth phase."
In his chief executive role,
Butch oversaw daily opera-
tions and drove new growth
initiatives.
At the time, Sol Kerzner
said of his son: "I am very
excited about the transition
taking place, 40 years to the
day that I finished building
my first five-star hotel, the
Beverly Hills in South Africa.
"I am proud of Butch, who
has demonstrated his man-
agement and financial savvy.
This transition has evolved
for quite some time as Butch
has been performing the role
of chief executive over the
last few years."
In a statement last night,
Kerzner International said it
was "with great sadness" that
it announced Butch's death.
It added that Sol Kerzner
was heading for the Domini-
Scan Republic before return-
ing I rhe Bahamas.
A lose friend, Robert Car-
ron, said: "Butth and Vanes-
sa were ah amazing couple
and Butch was one of the
most dynamic, intelligent sin-
cere and down-to-earth peo-
ple I have ever met.
"He captured you with his
charisma, drive for life and
love of his wife and family.
We shall miss him greatly."

The Bahamas has lost its





'leading light in tourism'


BUTCH KERZNER was
not only heir apparent to the
family business, he was also
the day-to-day operational
chief for Kerzner Internation-
al, which has resort interests
all over the wvorld.
Butch, a likeable family man
known to his associates as "an
extremely smart and intelligent
character", relieved his'father
of running the business and
implementing board strategies.
A media business analyst
told The Tribune last night:
"The Bahamas has lost its
leading light in tourism. He
was the man responsible for
implementing the visions of
himself and his father, Sol.
"There's no two ways about
it, he and his father have been
responsible for putting the
Bahamas back on the world
tourism map. Without Atlantis
and its success, a lot of the oth-
er foreign resort and invest-
ment projects would probably
not be coming to the
Bahamas."
He added: "Had the Kerzn-
ers not come here during the
1990s, Nassau would almost
certainly still be a sleepy eco-
nomic backwater."
He said Kerzner's opera-
tions account for such a huge
chunk of the Bahamian econ-
omy and GDP, "it's almost
frightening to think what the
unemployment situation would
b6 like without them."
Initially, associates expect
the impact on the business to
be primarily psychological and
emotional. But long-term,
Butch's death could be seen as
having a significant effect on
the business itself.
Although Kerzner Interna-
tional has a strong manage-,
ment structure in place, the
loss leaves a big hole to be
filled.
The tragedy comes at a cru-
cial time in the Kerzner organ-
i'aiioo because Buich and hib.

Ne"% York Stock E\change
listing.
It was a $4 billion deal which .
secured the Kerzners an esti-
mated 25 per cent stake in the
business.
Butch considered this to be
important because it gave him
and his father a greater share
of the rewards from the risk
they were taking in the com-
pany's international expansion
projects.
Apart from the Atlantis
Phase Three expansion, Kerzn-
er International is also devel-
oping the Atlantis, The Palm
resort in Dubai in partnership
with that nation's government.
The company is also look-
ing at casino projects in
Morocco, UK and Singapore.
The analyst said: "Butch was
seen as a young, dynamic
visionary who did not rise to
the top just because he was his
father's son.
"Sol Kerzner saw him as the
man to take the company for-
ward and the heir apparent.


KERZNER INTERNATIONAL CEO Butch Kerzner
pictured with his father, Sol.


He was happy to leave the
everyday business in his hands
because he knew he was a
young man of sound judg-
ment."C ._ ,*c
Business people in the
Bahamas felt that Butch irner-
ited his father's remarkable
entrepreneurial flair.
An associate said: "He was a
very pleasant, down-to-earth
guy whose manner belied his
great wealth. He obviously had
tremendous ability, but he nev-


er lost that 'ordinary bloke'
demeanour of his.
"He liked good books, loved
his family and was a keen
keep-fit man who. liked to jog
along the Eastern Road. Talk-
ing to him socially, you would
never guess that he had so
much on his plate."
Ironically, Sol Kerzner, in
an interview with The Tribune
eight years ago, listed "the
safety of my family members"
as his greatest fear.

What happened to swift justice?


WHILE THE Attorney General advocates
"swift justice" in the courts, someone -
described as a "high profile political source" -
says that "sometimes it is not in the best inter-
est of a leader to rush to the finality of a deci-
sion."
In talking to a Nassau Guardian reporter in
an article published in that newspaper on Octo-
ber 10, the "high profile political source" was
not referring to the attorney-general's "swift
justice" for the little man, but a negotiated
justice for two big men Kennedy MP Keny-
atta Gibson, chairman of the Gaming Board,
and Mt Moriah MP Keod Smith, Ambassador
to the Environment.
At this point we don't know whether the
two politicians are to be referred to as former
chairman and former ambassador, but as far as
the Guardian's impeccable source is aware
"they have resigned from their governmental
positions." The source presumes that in his
own good time the prime minister's announce-
ment of this fact will shortly follow.
As the source says: "You can't assume that
nothing is happening behind the scenes." And
we won't. Not for one minute do we think that
anyone even the prime minister is asleep
at the switch. We are satisfied that much is
happening behind the scenes. And it is just
because of this activity that, like the source, we
too are going to take a shot at some assump-
tions.
If the Prime Minister is unsuccessful in niego-.
tiating an agreement, particularly with one of
the combatants, we predict that the House will
close early with the announcement of an elec-
tion, whether a by-election or a general election
is open to more speculation.
However, if he is successful.in sealing lips
then life will bump on as usual until the time is
ripe for the general election sometime
before May next year.
We understand that Keod Smith was anxious
to make a statement at last week's sitting of the
House. We don't know what that statement
might have been about, but, it is claimed that
Mr Smith, considered a loose cannon even by
his parliamentary colleagues, might have made
a few off the cuff comments. And sometimes
his off-the-cuffers can be dynamite. The
tragedy of it is that his dynamite can be lethal
because there is no legal come back. His words
would be protected by parliamentary privi-
lege. It is possible if in fact our speculation
is correct that no one wanted to take that
chance.
This holiday weekend will give all parties a
cooling off period, time to bury the hatchet.

When that is fully buried, then possibly we

It will be interesting whether strings will be
attached to the expected peace settlement.
According to the Guardian article:
"Sometimes it is not in the best interest of a
leader to rush to the finality of a decision,"
said a highiprofile political source with close ties
to Mr Christie. "I am satisfied that Mr Christie
knew his decision (on how to reprimand Messrs
Smith and Gibson) a long time ago, but he
won't rush the finality of this decision because
if he doesn't deal with this matter in a decent
and respectable manner, to a point where the
guys are at least satisfied with the process,
could you imagine what would happen?"
What an absolutely incredible statement.
Had Messrs John Q Public exchanged blows in
a public place and in the course of bashing
each other had broken government property,
can any of our readers imagine a magistrate
taking time to consider how to deal with them
in a manner that would not hurt their dignity?
The source felt that the two MPs didn't
understand politics. If they had they would
have apologised for their unseemly behaviour
and resigned their political appointments. It
was felt that if they had done so, they would
have been forgiven and their political futures
would have been assured.
(Mr Gibson in fact did apologise, but he did
not resign as one would have expectedd.
However, having not considered their own
political futures, why should the prime minis-
ter consider them, and, by doing so, jeopardise
his own political future?
According to the Guardian's source,
"because the PLP does not want to create any
'unnecessary enemies', the Prime Minister
reportedly asked the junior MPs to resign,
rather than fire them outright."
This is where the Prime Minister made his
mistake. What he should know is that when
everybody likes you, there is something wrong.
Whenever a strong leader makes a decision
that he believes right, he will not get applause
from all of the public, but, right or wrong, he
will be praised by most of them, if only because
they admire his strength of character.
Everyday that this matter is allowed to slide
it is the face of the Prime Minister that is being
smeared, riot those of Messrs Gibson and
Smith who threw away their own political
futures when they resorted to their fists to
resolve their differences.
What isneeded is swift justice, both in and
out of court lest we forget, all men are cre-
ated equal.


Doing the





maths on





NHI scheme


EDITOR, The Tribune
TODAY'S Tribune article on
the town hall meeting in High
Rock, Grand Bahama under-
scores the irresponsible
approach being taken toward
the proposed National Health
Insurance plan. National Health
Insurance is a very complex and
serious issue that begs for
impartial, honest and candid
dialogue. Bahamians must be
consulted in a manner that
respects their intelligence and
sensibilities. It is unfair to
promise and sell the Bahamian
people a gigantic life raft that
has a very big hole in the middle
of it. What happens to those
who cannot swim?
The article referred to com-
ments made at the meeting by
Minister of Local Government
and Consumer Affairs, the Hon
V Alfred Gray. Minister Gray
was quoted as saying that NHI
will "make the days of cook-
outs history". What right think-
ing Bahamian wouldn't want
such security for their health
and the health of their families,
especially if it will come at the
cost of only "two dollars and
some cents a week"? In his


explanation of the benefits, he
claimed that this "two dollars
and some cents a week" would
pay for a $1500 CT scan and a
$60,000 surgery. What right
thinking Bahamian wouldn't
want the promise of so much,
at the cost of so little?
Consider that Canada spends
$4,411 per person, per year for
health care, Great Britain
spends $2,995, but Bahamians
are being told that the same
quality of coverage will only
cost them about $2 per week or
approximately $100 per year.
Forget about the fact that
based on the BRC's figures, it
will cost $775 per person, per
year; that just doesn't sound as
palatable as "two dollars and
some cents" per person, per
. week. Health care is not cheap,
and we should not lose sight of
this reality in selling it to the
Bahamian people. If the mes-
sage that continues to be con-
veyed is that this initiative will
meet all of the health care needs


of Bahamians, it risks enormous
public backlash if the service
proves to be far more expen-
sive in execution than in theory,
or far more limited in its scope
of coverage than has been
promised thus far. This reality is
very likely to be realized.
What happens then? Will
NHI cover the purchase of the
steak and the chicken when
Bahamians have once again to
resort to having cookouts?
At a NHI consultative meet-
ing held between dentists and
representatives of the Ministry
of Health last .evening, one of
the presenters stated that
"Bahamians don't like hand-
outs", while a few days earlier a
minister of government was
promising Grand Bahamians
something' for next to nothing .
That has been the mantra thus
far in promoting NHI the
promise of so much fqr the cost
of so little. Caution, another
thing Bahamians don't like is
being taken for fools.

Frustration over condo fees


EDITOR, The Tribune
I AM a resident of a large
condominium complex located
in South Bahamia, Freeport,
Grand Bahama. I abide by all
the rules and regulations and
pay my maintenance fees on
time. t .
As a retired person living on
a fixed income, I feel absolute-
ly frustrated by the fact that
some condo owners refuse to
pay their fees and what is more,
they seem to get away with it.
Two owners of the complex
where I live have managed to
. accumulate almost $200,000
between them over a period of
several years. This has resulted
in much needed work to the
buildings being put on hold and
the burden of every day expens-
es placed on those persons who
do pay on a regular basis.
I know for a fact that numer-
ous attempts have been made
through the judicial system to
collect these outstanding debts,
but the court system has failed
to settle this matter so far.
I write this letter because I am
sick and tired of this lack of caring
by these delinquent people. Fur-
thermore, I feel that I am pay-
ing to carry them. As you are no

Many expatriate owners have
opted to sell and are discour-

Responding




to Galanis


EDITOR, The Tribune
I WISH to respond very
briefly to a letter from Sena-
tor Philip Galanis, which
appeared in October 7, edi-
tion.
When this letter appeared
earlier in another daily, I did
not feel it appropriate to
respond. On seeing it again, I
reconsidered.
In his commendable con-
gratulatory comments on the
appointment of Mr Nathaniel
Beneby as Vice President and
country Head of RBC, Mr
Galanis obviously overlooked
the fact that there were four
previous Bahamian Country
Heads of major international
banks (Hugh Sands, Tony
Allen, Paul Major and
Sharon Brown). A notable
difference is that those coun-
try heads had responsibility
for the entire bank, including
finance and commercial and
corporate business. He also
made a gratuitous diversion
to criticise one of the inter-
national banks and its first
Bahamian country head for
not providing for Bahamian
succession.


No doubt it would be desir-
able to achieve greater suc-
cess in Bahamiansing the
executive levels across the
entire Bahamian corporate
world. However, Mr Galanis
may wish to look beyond his
assertion of a lack of vision
in training Bahamians as the
only impediment to this
achievement.
Given my knowledge of
the institution and the former
country head he appears to
be criticising I would strongly
recommend that he should
give the matter more careful
consideration.
In his stated desire for the
encouragement of excellence
in our financial services sector
and his concern for progress
in the Bahamianisation of the
management of the sector,
and having regard to articles
appearing not long ago in the
daily press in which Mr Gala-
nis was featured, he may also
wish to consider whether he
himself has been terribly
helpful to the process.

Salvation
Army gets
ready for
fundraising

AS Christmas approaches
the Salvation Army once again
will be ringing bells across town
in their traditional fundraising
effort.
As in past years, members of
the Rotary Club of East Nassau
will be honorary bellringers. In
appreciation of their help Rotary
was recently presented with a
plaque from Delicia Armbrister
and Major Lester Ferguson of
the Salvation Army.
Funds raised in the Christmas
bellringing campaign are used in
the Army's "war on poverty" in
114 countries around the world.
In the Bahamas the Salvation
Army runs the School for the
Blind, serves 600 meals a week,
manages youth programmes and
provides hurricane relief.

High-profile FNM supporter



cuts links to the Opposition


A LONG-TIME party stal-
wart of the FNM announced
yesterday that he was severing
all ties with the opposition and
joining the PLP.
Dr Leatendore Percentie,
former chairman of the Marco
City Free National Movement
Association and Grand
Bahama Free National Move-
ment Association, said he feels
Prime Minister Perry Christie
represents the right direction
for the country.
"I am now fully supporting
the Progressive Liberal Party
(PLP) under the leadership of
Prime Minister Perry Glad-
stone Christie.


"This is a formal notice that
I am officially ending all of my
past association with the Free
National Movement. As I
depart the Free National
Movement, I leave without
malice or bad feelings against
that political party or individ-
uals within that party," he said
in a press statement yesterday.
He pointed out that one of
the fundamental principles of
Bahamian democracy is the
right to choose and support the
political party of your choice.
Over the past 20 years, Dr
Percentie said that he had been
an avid supporter of the Free
National Movement.


"However, at this time, I feel
that my political interest would
be better served by moving on.
I can better serve my country
with a more positive impact
under the PLP," he said.

Nevertheless, Dr Percentie
said that there was no single
reason for his departure and
this action was of his free
choice.
"With a vision of the new

Christie, I feel is the right

Anna Nicole attorney steps down


ATLANTA (AP) Anna
Nicole Smith's lead attorney
in the Bahamas said Wednes-
day he has withdrawn as coun-
sel for the reality TV star, cit-
ing disagreements on matters
of strategy and concerns about
her conduct.
Michael Scott said he was
unsettled by Smith's decision
to exchange vows with her
boyfriend even before she
made funeral arrangements for
Daniel Smith, her 20-year-old
son who died on September
10. People magazine bought
photos of the ceremony, which
was not a legal wedding and
was held aboard a catamaran
off Nassau.
"A disagreement on a com-
mercial transaction made it dif-
ficult for us to remain as coun-
sel," Scott told The Associated
Press over the phone.
A Nassau funeral home has
been holding Daniel Smith's
embalmed body while awaiting
further instructions from the
family. He died while visiting
Ms Smith in Doctors Hospital
where she had given birth to a
daughter three days earlier.

(HCFCs), on May 4,1993.
Dr Bethel was speaking at a
press conference to promote
Ozone Month, which began
October 6.
He listed guidelines the pub-'
lic should be aware of when
dealing with ozone depleting
substances, refrigeration and
air-conditioners. These include:
Persons must request the
services of a technician who
possesses, and is able to pre-
sent, a National Certification
Card in refrigeration and air-
conditioning to service any.
equipment or appliance.
No persons will be allowed
to import cars, air-conditioning
or refrigerator systems or any
quipmenicn containing CFCs
into the country. Most cars
manufactured after 1995 do not
use CFCs in their air-condi-
tioning systems.
The public is also asked to


ensure that technicians who fix
appliances or cars label them-
with the types of tests that have
been preformed.
The National Ozone Unit
located in the offices of the
BEST Commission, is responsi-
ble for disposing of old refrig-
erators and air-conditioning sys-
tems.
Persons who are not
licensed importers of ozone
depleting substances will not be,
allowed to import refrigerants
or equipment with ozone
depleting substances.
Only certified technicians
with a National, Certificatiori
Card will be able to purchase
refrigerants. .

reribe." Bahamians now want the




)rpoT death penalty enforced


* By CRYSTAL
JOHNSON-COLLIE
IN RESPONSE to the increase
in the number of murders this
year Bahamians are increasingly
voicing their opinions on the
death penalty.
* Numerous inmates at Her
Majesty's Prison continue to sit
on death row and despite the six-
year-old moratorium on capital
punishment, many citizens are
now demanding that their lives
be taken.
In this report, The Tribune
details the arguments of Bahami-
ans for and against the death
penalty, as gleaned from a series
of interviews. Many of the names
are excluded either at the request
of the interviewee, or because
they are connected to a matter
for which a court date is pend-
ing.
* THE ARGUMENT:
PREVENTION
Enforcing the death penalty
will decrease the murder rate
in the Bahamas
Bahamian society has always
used punishment to prevent
would-be criminals from illegal
acts. Since Bahamians have an
obvious interest in preventing
murder, some suggest we use the
strongest punishment available
to prevent murder the death
penalty.
As DeAnne Moncur put it, "If
murderers are sentenced to death
and executed, potential murder-
ers will think twice before killing
for fear of losing their life."
For many years, local crimi-
nologists examined murder rates
to see if executions had any effect
but the results have been
unclear.
However one local profession-
al who specialises in criminal jus-
tice said he believes that for every
inmate executed in the Bahamas,
five lives are spared because oth-
ers were discouraged from com-


1 .
















U THE notice of execution is posted before Thomas Reckley
is brought to the gallows before a large crowd in 1996.


mitting murder.
The death penalty certainly
"deters" the murderer who is exe-
cuted. "Vicious murderers must
be killed to prevent them from
murdering again- either in prison
or in society if they should get
out," says a mother of a murder
victim.
H REBUTTAL
The death penalty is not a
proven deterrent to future
murders
The overwhelming conclusion
from years of deterrence studies is
that the death penalty is, at best,
no more of a deterrent than a sen-
tence of life in prison.
In fact, some international
criminologists, such as William
Bowers of Northeastern Univer-
sity, maintain that the death
penalty has the opposite effect:
that is, society is brutalised by the
use of the death penalty, and this
increases the likelihood of more
murder.


States in the United States of
America that do not employ the
death penalty generally have low-
er murder rates than states that
do. The US also has a higher mur-
der rate than Europe or Canada -
which do not execute prisoners.
"The death penalty is not. a
deterrent because most people
who commit murders either do
not expect to be caught or do not
carefully weigh the differences
between a possible execution and
life in prison before they act. Fre-
quently, murders are committed
in moments of passion or anger,
or by criminals who are substance
abusers and acted impulsively,"
said one social worker.
* THE ARGUMENT:
REVENGE
A just society wants the death
penalty for the taking of a life
Holders of this view say that
when someone takes a life, the
balance of justice is disturbed.
Unless that balance is brought


back, society surrenders to a rule
of violence.
Only the taking of a murderer's
life restores the balance and
allows society to demonstrate per-
suasively that murder is an
unbearable crime that will be
punished in kind.
Revenge has its basis in reli-
gious values, which have histori-
cally maintained that it is proper
to take an "eye for an eye".
Holders of this view say that
for the most cruel and heinous
crimes, the criminals deserve the
worst punishment under the law -
the death penalty. Any lesser
punishment would undermine the
value society places on protect-
ing lives.
The grandmother of a rape and
murder victim described her view
of the need for retribution. "Her
killer should not be allowed to
live in prison with three meals a
day, clean sheets, cable TV, fam-
ily visits and endless appeals," she
said.
* REBUTTAL
The death penalty is not just
a response for the taking of a
life

Some Bahamians say the emo-
tional impulse for revenge is not a
sufficient justification for using
capital punishment, with all of its
accompanying problems and
risks.
As one interviewee said, laws
and the criminal justice system
should lead us to higher princi-
ples that demonstrate a complete
respect for life even the life of a
murderer.
"Encouraging our basest
motives of revenge, which results
in another killing, extends the
chain of violence. Allowing exe-
cutions sanctions killing as a form
of 'payback'," he said.
Some families of victims
denounce the use of the death
penalty. They say using an exe-
cution to try to right the wrong of
their loss is an affront to them


and only causes more pain.
This is what an employee of
the Catholic Archdiocese of Nas-
sau had to say:
"Some would argue that the
death penalty will teach society
at large the seriousness of crime.
Yet we say that teaching people
to respond to violence with vio-
lence will, again, only breed more
violence.
"The strongest argument of all
(in favour of the death penalty) is
the deep pain and grief of the
families of victims, and their quite
natural desire to see punishment
meted out to those who have
plunged them into such agony.
"Yet it is the clear teaching of
our traditions that this pain and
suffering cannot be healed sim-
ply through the retribution of cap-
ital punishment or by vengeance.
"It is a difficult and long
process of healing which comes
about through personal growth
and God's grace.
"Many agree that much more
must be done by the religious
community and by society at large
to solace and care for the grieving
families of the victims of violent.,
crimes.
S"Respect for all human life and
opposition to the violence in our
society are at the root of our long-
standing opposition (as priests)
to the death penalty. We see the
death penalty as perpetuating a
cycle of violence and promoting a
sense of vengeance in our culture.
We cannot teach that killing is
wrong by killing.
THE ARGUMENT:
INNOCENCE
The risk of executing
the innocent is a strong
argument against the
death penalty
The death penalty imposes an
irrevocable sentence. Once an
inmate is executed, nothing can
be done to make amends if a mis-
take has been made.
There is considerable evidence


that many mistakes have been
made internationally and locally
in the sentencing of criminals.
Just a few months ago, a Japan-
ese man was awarded damages
in the Bahamas for being wrong-
fully imprisoned at Her Majesty's
Prison for eight years.
"There is no question in my
mind and I can say this, having
seen the dynamics of our criminal
justice system over the many
years that I have been associated
with it, (as) prosecutor, defence
attorney, trial judge and Supreme
Court justice that convinces me
that we certainly have, in the past,
convicted those people who either
did not fit the criteria for convic-
tion, or who, in fact, were factu-
ally not guilty of the crime for
which they have been convicted
of.
"And you can make these
statements when you understand
the dynamics of the criminal jus-
tice system, when you understand
how the law makes deals with
more culpable defendants in cap-
ital cases, offers them light sen-
tences in exchange for their testi-
mony against another participant,
or in some cases in fact, gives
them immunity from prosecution
so that they can secure their tes-
timony; the use of jailhouse con-
fessions, like people who say, 'I
was in the cell with (so-and-so)
and they confessed to me,' or
using those particular confessions,
the validity of which there has
been great doubt.
"And yet, you see the uneven
application of the death penalty
where in many instances, those
that are most culpable escape
death and those that are least cul-
pable are victims of the death
penalty.
"These things begin to weigh
heavily upon you. And this is the
system we have.
"And that is, because we are
human beings administering an
imperfect system," said a promi-
nent member of the legal com-
munity.

ed that few bother to visit these
communities and gain different
perspective.
With the tension over illegal
immigration growing around
the country, The Tribune decid-
ed to visit one particular flash-
point, a settlement just south of
Joe Farrington Road. '
This particular Haitian village
has been the focus of media
attention in the past. Some
Bahamians who live nearby
have repeatedly protested that
the Haitian community con-
stantly violates public health
laws and that they are the cause
of the offensive odour that per-
vaded the area allegedly cre-
ated by the burning of dead
bodies and human waste.

When the residents of the vil-
lage were given the opportunity
to voice their opinion about the
accusations of their disgruntled
neighbours, they strongly refut-
ed claims that they are respon-
sible for the "stink" that sur-
rounds the settlement.
Some of the Haitians were
aware of an article in Tuesday's
Tribune, in which Bahamians
again accused the government
of failing to keep its promise to
either relocate immigrants or
to control their "lawless behav-
iour."
Those quoted in the report
also claimed that the Haitian
community had constructed a
store and a church without the
proper permits.

Yesterday, The Tribune
spoke to residents of the sol
called "Haitian Village" who
vehemently denied the more
serious allegations.
An elderly Haitian man, whq
claimed that he has been living
in the Bahamas since 1958, said
that there are two farms around
the area that are involved in
rearing goats and pigs.
"When they smell the farms,
they may think that its the vil-
lage, but its not the village.
What they smell is the things
that they are feeding the ani-
mals with," he said.
The man claimed that the vil-
lage was a "peaceful communi-
ty" and that the all the mem-
bers understand "that when one
is in someone else's home, you
must respect the place."
In respect to the allegation
that a store and church .were
constructed without permits, the
man suggested that the persons
who sold goods in the commu-
nity had vendor-licenses.
But, he admitted that they
may not have permits allowing
them to sell goods in the vil-
lage.
The man also said that the
small church in the community
was built by the main branch of
a large Baptist church.
The man's version was con-
firmed by Director of Environ-.
mental Health Ron Pinder.
-'"When quesiioncd b\ The Tri-
bune, Nir PinJer ;aid h.it a
nearby farm's use ol manure
may be the cause of the odour
within the area. He also stated
that the government had demol-
ished 500 homes illegal homes
in the area and that.he viewed
the problem as a "work in
progress."
The Tribune was unable to
speak with many members in
the community because many
feared immigration reprisals
and others did not speak fluent

English, however a young
woman, 26, who was born in the
,Bahamas but of Haitian par-
ents, said she also supported the
view that the farms were
responsible for the "stink" smell
in the area.
She said she knew that
Bahamian residents were alleg-
ing that the Haitian community
was burning human bodies. But,
claimed this young Haitian-
,Bahamian: "The only reason that
we start a fire in the back here is
to stop the mosquitos. But as
soon as we start a little small fire,
,someone calls the fire engine and
they come and put it out."
The young woman admitted
that life was hard for residents
in the village. However, she sug-
gested that the government could
anir the comm1iniivbyfinalising
ithe. ciizernship atyoung persons
in the cornmunirv who were bornm
in the Bahams'.


"We have a lot of young peo-
ple in the back here who
applied for citizenship three and
five years ago, but they still
have not gotten their citizen-
ship yet," she said.
The residents said that thev
have no problems with anyone
outside the community and that
they only want to find honest
work and a safe place to shelter
their families.
A report that was commis-
sioned by the International
Organisation of Migration
(IOM) on Haitian Migrants in
the Bahamas, among other
things" found that press reports
by the media are often incor-
rect and fuel ethnic tensions
within the society. ,

W HEN Bahamian
hero, Sir Cecil Wal-
lace Whitfield, founder of the

alive, he led a party that had as
its aims and objectives, accord-
ing to its constitution, the fol-
lowing:

maintain in office a government
which will truly reflect the polit-
ical, social, cultural and eco-
nomic aspirations of the people
of the Commonwealth of The
Bahamas.

the principles of democratic
government in The Bahamas
and to put into effect the pro-
grammes of the Party as out-
lined in its platform.
(c) To establish and maintain
an electoral system which shall
be free, fair and democratic and
which shall guarantee the right
of all voters to choose their rep-
resentatives without intimida-
tion or hindrance.
(d) To further develop
Bahamian democracy by estab-
lishing and maintaining an
effective system of Local Gov-
ernimeht. ,,:..-
(e.).To promote respect for
the Constitution and laws of
The Bahamas and to uphold the
rule of law and the ascendancy
of justice.
(f) To guarantee the freedom
and human rights of all persons
in The Bahamas including free-


promote and foster equal
opportunity and fair play for all.
(h) To provide caring, com-
petent and honest government
for all the people of The
Bahamas.
(i) To foster a spirit of caring
and sharing among the Bahami-
an people and to implement, as.
far as human and material
resources allow, programmes
designed to provide assistance
in the areas of education,
health, law, culture, employ-
ment and physical and spiritual
well-being.

It is to these aims and
objectives that faithful
party,supporters are loyal. If
they are loyal to any man or
woman or set ofi men or women
who lead the party, it is because
such persons embrace and pro-
mote these aims and objectives.
It is loyalty to principles in
matters of public affairs that
keeps a man from prostituting
himself to some personal inter-
est. It is the shortsighted who
pretend that intelligent people
have any other motive than this.

STUDY FOR THE
MASTERSDEG .
Applied Social Science with concentration in:

* Public Administration
* Urban Education (Reading)


It is loyalty to principles in
matters of public affairs that keeps
a man from prostituting himself to
some personal interest. It is the
shortsighted who pretend that
intelligent people have any other
motive than this.


It is the confused who believe
that their hatred of a leader who
upholds the party's constitution
makes shameful another's loy-
alty to that leader.
MEMBERS ARE LOYAL
TO THEIR MISSION

One thing that is abun-
dantly clear from
these aims and objectives
endorsed by the founding
fathers of the Free National
Movement is that they envision
a party focused on being the
government. All of the objec-
tives speak to the party prepar-
ing itself to govern The
Bahamas and governing The
Bahamas. This makes sense.
After all a political party exist to
do one thing, to be the govern-
ment.
If this is so, then anyone who
says that he is a member of the
party but who wishes to see the
party fail to become the gov-
ernment or does things that
work against the party succeed-
ing to become the government
cannot be members of the par-
ty.
He who works against the
objectives of his organisation is
against the organisation and an
enemy of that organisation's
cause. Their actions would be
like a Bahamian citizen fight-
ing against The Bahamas in a
war against an invading country.
Such a Bahamian would be
charged with treason, the great-
est crime against the state imag-


higher pensions for the elderly,
higher benefits for mothers as
well as facilities in schools for
blind, deaf and autistic chil-
dren? Caring!
What do you call a leader
who holds at bay those who
would seek to enrich themselves
at the expense of the public pur-
sue? A man of integrity! What
do you call a leader willing to
make tough decisions from
which others who pretend to be
courageous shirk? Decisive!
What do you call a leader who
refuses to play games with the
church but supports its mission
by increasing public funding to
its schools and inviting its lead-
ers to address the cabinet? Hon-
est!
What do you call a leader
who opens up his nation's air-
ways and accepts that in doing
so the people have the right to
heavily criticise even him with-
out fear of victimisation?
Democratic! What do you call a
leader who a majority of his
party's supporters call back to
leadership in hopes of rescuing
the nation from drift and scan-
dal? Popular! You don't call
him perfect but you do call him
a good leader.
THOUGHT FOR THE
WEEK

Pity the man who has as
his assignment in life
subverting the success of anoth-
er, for he is a man who confirms
his own failure.

inable.
Of course, some smart aleck
will say that he is fighting
against a person who happens
to be the leader. Well, to the
extent that the convention of
the party, which is the highest
authority of the party elected
such a leader democratically,
the convention placed full con-
fidence in that leader to repre-
sent, uphold and pursue the
ideals of the party as expressed
in its aims and objectives.
Therefore, to fight against
that leader is to fight against
the convention and ultimately
to fight against the party. The
end result is the same, a sort of
treason.
There is really no way out for
that so-called party member
who fights against the party
except to confess that he has
shifted his alliance and has
joined the ranks of the party's
opponents. There is nothing
intrinsically wrong with this by
the way, so long as he has the
courage of his conviction and
is prepared to be frank and
open with his deeds. Men who
hide in closets live frustrated
lives and do a disservice to their
own dignities. Indeed, their
actions amount to a kind of
comedy".

A GOOD LEADER


What do you call a
leader who dramat-
ically turns around the reputa-
tion of a nation dragged down
by pervasive drug trafficking
and official corruption? Good.
What do you call a leader who
spearheads the reduction of his
country's unemployment rate
from 14.8 per cent to 6.9 per
cent by creating more than
50,000 jobs in less than ten
years? Effective!
What do you call a leader
who leads his nation in the
longest and most robust period
of economic expansion in a gen-
eration? Productive! What do
you call a leader who provides


He who works against the
objectives of his organisation is
against the organisation and an
enemy of that organisation's
cause. Their actions would be like
a Bahamian citizen fighting
against The Bahamas in a war
against an invading country.

the Bahamas trom October 3U
to November 2.
The third Urban and Regional
Information System Association
(URISA) Caribbean Geograph-
ic Information Systems Confer-
ence is scheduled to take place

GIS is used as a tool to help
solve problems in such areas as


structure management.

Police consider



murder rate rise


THE inability of Bahamians
to peaceably settle their differ-
ences is one of the main rea-
sons why the rising murder rate
a senior police officer said yes-
terday.
In 2005 there were 52 mur-
ders in all. There have already
been 40 this year a 15 per cent
increase over the final count for
2004.
Press liaison officer Inspec-
tor Walter Evans said that most
homicides stem from alterca-
tions that get out of hand.
"The number has gotten so
high from all the constant alter-
cations and principally from our
inability to settle the differ-
ences," he explained.
Mr Evans argued that if more
matters could be resolved with-
out violence then the Bahamas
would see a reduction in the
murder rate.
SIn light of the upcoming hol-
iday weekend a time when
acts of violence are most preva-
lent Inspector Evans is ask-
ing members of the public to
take extra care.
"We've had too many inci-
dents as far as the Royal
Bahamas Police Force is con-
cerned with the number of per-
sons who have been injured and
hurt- and in accidents. And also
incidents that-involve stab-
bings,''hq said.


During holiday weekend,
many Bahamians drink exces-


sively, which can lead to them
taking more risks.

Prime Minister Perry

Christie pays tribute

to Butch Kerzner
-THE tragic death of Butch
Kerzner in the Dominicani
Republic today represents a
mIajor loss for the Bahamas.
-ollowing in the footsteps
of his father, Butch was a
visionary developer with a 21st
century plan for resort devel-
opment in the Bahamas.
"He was an incredibly bright
young man, full of energy and
passion, and imbued with a spe- .
cial quality that endeared him "
to all his fellow-workers at
Atlantis and his partners in the
tourism industry here and
around the world.
"Butch's death robs our
country of one of its most vital
spirits. This is a sad moment
for our nation, especially for
those of us who had the privilege of knowing him and working
with him.
"'Our only comfort is the certain knowledge we have that
Butch's work here in the Bahamas will continue on pace and
that his shared vision for Atlantis and for Bahamian tourism will
be brought to fruition by the excellent team, headed by his
father, that he leaves behind.
"On behalf of the Government and people of the Bahamas,
ahd on my own behalf, I extend deepest condolences to Butch's
widow and to his entire family.
"Our entire nation shares in their grief."
Prime Minister Perry Christie


Two-week-old housing estate


still without power si


FROM page one
One resident explained how
those living in the area are get-
ting through the difficulties
"day by day" using lanterns
and their own initiative.
Mr Major claimed that
"internal problems" within the
sub-division's system, and an
issue with the positioning of
houses in the estate, were at
the root of the delay.
"When the road was put in
they found persons had built
outside of their boundary and
in the verges so it created dif-
ficulty for BEC relative to how
to bypass those houses with
their supply because they


would not be allowed to put
poles over people's houses if
the houses extend into the
verge," said Mr Major.
While BEC had reportedly
"made a commitment that it
was going to be done within a
certain time frame," explained
Mr Major, "on closer investi-
gation there was not as simple
a solution as they had initially
thought."
According to residents on
the estate, the Ministry of
Housing had promised gener-
ators would be provided in an
effort to "alleviate" the incon-
venience. -
Initially, according to a male
resident, who wished to remain
anonymous, the Ministry of


Housing had promised the res-
idents when they moved in
that electricity would be avail-
able within the week.
However, it is now almost
two and a half weeks since the
September 25 opening of the
Excellence Estates formerly
"Golden Isles" sub-division -
attended by Prime Minister
Christie.I
Prior to this, complaints had
been made thatthe houses had
been completed but left vacant
since April, while the waiting
list of those in need of housing
continued to grow.
Questioned by The Tribune
a week before the opening as
to why the houses were still
vacant, the Ministry of Hous-


supply
ing replied that essential utili-
ties water, electricity and tele-
phone lines were yet to be
installed, and as these were
"essential for occupancy", the
residents would have to con- -
tinue to wait.
The following week the keys
to the homes were provided to
residents in what the ministry
described as an "accelerated"
opening.
A meeting between Mr ,
Major and a BEC.representa-
tive was scheduled for yester-
day afternoon.
He said it was hoped that,
after that time, he would be in
a better position to say when
the problem would be
resolved.


FROM page one
terday made submissions before president
of the Bahamas Court of Appeal Justice
Dame Joan Sawyer, Emmanuel Osadebay
and Lorris Ganpatsingh.
Director of public prosecutions Bernard
Turner appeared for the Crown.
On the issue of Tido's conviction for the
murder of 16-year-old Donnell Conover,
Mr Munroe argued that the trial judge erred
in her direction to the jury in regard to the
evidence and testimonies of several key
witnesses at the trial.
On March 20, a jury of 11 women and
one man unanimously found Tido guilty of
the murder of 16-year-old Donnell
Conover, who had been a student of L W
Young. Conover reportedly died as a result
of a crushed skull and lacerations to lte
brain. Her partially clothed body, which
reportedly also had burns on it, was found


in a quarry pit off Cowpen Road.
Tido was sentenced to death in April by.
Justice Anita Allen, who ruled that the
death penalty was appropriate.
It was the first time since the Privy Coun-
cil had ruled against the Bahamas' manda-
tory death penalty, leaving sentencing to
the discretion of the trial judge, that a
Bahamian judge had exercised discretion to
hand down the death sentence on a con-
, victed murderer.
Mr Munroe argued that the procedure
followed by the trial judge in determining
the appropriate sentence was "flawed" and
amounted to a nullity. The sentence was a
nullity on the basis that it amounted to cru-
el and unusual punishment, Mr Munroe
submitted.
After lengthy discussions with the justices
and lengthy submissions, the appeal hearing
was adjourned to November 13. At that
time the prosecution is expected to make its
submissions.

Concerns initially centred on the possibility that her disappear-.

She had failed to turn up for several scheduled engagements at
the end of September, and given conflicting stories as to her intend-

MINISTER of Energy and
the Environment Dr Marcus
Bethel told disgruntled citizens
that the collection of garbage is
not his responsibility.
Explaining why the complet-
ed East End garbage transfer
station has not yet been acti-
vated, Dr Bethel told a town
meeting in Grand Bahama that
while the development of sani-
tary landfill sites falls under his
portfolio in the Family Islands,
the actual collection of garbage
is the responsibility of the Min-
istry of local government.
He explained that the haul-

ing of garbage is actually a con-
tracted service which local gov-
ernments manage in all of the
Family Islands.
With respect to the High
Rock Transfer Station, Dr
Bethel said construction is com-
plete.
"My understanding is that
there is a need for that to be
contracted out and hence they
have prepared the necessary
papers for bids to contract out
the management of the trans-
fer station.
"Along with that also," he
said, "is a training programme

that has to be in place. In other
words, we have to be sure that
the actual body or company that
wins the bid to manage the
transfer station is properly
trained to do it because it is a
specialised system that's
required to ensure proper man-
agement. So a contract has to
be issued, following which there
is also a training programme for
the contractor."
Dr Bethel added that as soon
as that was completed and he
anticipated that it would be
before the end of the year the
transfer station would be offi-
cially opened.

because they require a D8 (trac-
tor) and compactors to proper-
ly compress the garbage."
Dr Bethel pointed out that as
Freeport has an existing large
landfill central site, the govern-
ment thought that, with the
small population in East End, it
would be best to put in a trans-
fer station which is an interme-
diary stop before the onward
transfer.
He said the decision was tak-
en to establish the transfer sta-
tion to prevent persons from
dumping indiscriminately in the
bushes whether it be refrig-
erators, stoves, cars or house-
hold garbage.
"So all of this," Dr Bethel
continued, "requires a lot of
[bought and preparation so that
we preserve our environment
trom degradation due to indis-
criminate dumping of garbage
.nd waste.
"That is why the contractor
has to be trained to manage the
site properly. So it isn't a matter
of building it and then turning it
over to anybody, to say 'here,
i un it'. You have to know what
\ou are doing in order to get
i he most useful life out of the
money spent in developing what
is a very nice transfer station
which I have visited."

Bank of the Bahamas names judges



for architectural competition


THE Bank of the
Bahamas International has
unveiled/the names of five
leaders in Caribbean design
and architecture who will
serve as judges in an archi-
tecturalkdeas competition
to produce concepts for the
bank's new headquarters
and commercial project on
West Bay Street.
The competition closed on
September 29 with 13
designs submitted by
Bahamian architects for the
multi-million dollar project
that will rise on a hilltop site
with harbour view just west
of Nassau Street.
Bordered on the east by
the Nassau Palm Resort and
on the west by Dockendale
House, the. bank said the
complex is destined to
become a national land-
mark.
It is being constructed on
the last major piece of avail-
able waterfront footage near
the historic downtown area.
"We are extremely

* TEHRAN, Iran

IRAN took a tough line on its
nuclear program Tuesday, blam-
ing Washington for North Kore-
a's reported .test blast and vowing
to keep developing its own sus-
pect atomic program, according to
Associated Press.
Iran appeared emboldened by
North Korea's defiance as its
hardline Islamic leaders pledged
not to bow to international
demands that Tehran suspend
uranium enrichment.
"The Iranian nation will con-
tinue its path of dignity based on
resistance, wisdom and without
fear," President Mahmoud
Ahmadinejad was quoted as say-
ing on state-run television.
Iran also stood apart Tuesday
from the widespread internation-
al condemnation of North Korea.
Government spokesman Gho-
lamj ossein Elham told reporters
that Iran opposed "any use of
weapons of mass destruction,
especially nuclear weapons." But
he did not criticize North Korea
and instead faulted the United
States for the test.
"The root cause of this should
be sought in the policy, behavior
and method adopted by the rulers
of the United States," Elham said.
. The U.N. Security Council has
demanded Iran suspend uranium
enrichment because of suspicions
Tehran is trying to develop atom-
ic weapons in violation of its
treaty commitments. Iran ignored
the council's Aug. 31 deadline
despite a threat of sanctions.
Though the Security Council
is giving precedence to consider-
ing sanctions against North
Korea, a State. Department
spokesman said,Tuesday that
senior officials of the United
States and five other countries
planned to confer by video
Wednesday on possible U.N.
sanctions against Iran.

they feared the North Korean test
would set a dangerous precedent
and the communist country
would transfer materials and tech-
nology for the development of
nuclear weapons to Iran, whose
president has said the Jewish state
should be wiped off the map.
...:N clr jpjbiliiN in the
hands of irresponsible, undemoc-
ratic regimes is a world problem,"
said Miri Eisin, spokeswoman for
Israeli Prime Minister Ehud
Olmert.


Iran has long refused to com-
ment on its close relationship with
North Korea. Western intelli-
gence agencies have reported that
Iran's Shahab-3 missile, which is
capable of carrying a nuclear war-
head, is based on a North Korean
rocket. But Iran denies this.
Many Iranian nriewp% jeprCs
voiced sympathy Tiic J.J) tottie
North Korean regime. The hard-
line Resalat newspaper said.in an
editorial that Washingt "expansionist policies make the


world such a dangerous place, it is
to be expected that countries seek
such weapons as a deterrence."
But the moderate independent
newspaper Hambastegi criticized
North Korea. The paper ran a

"both a chance and a threat for

"It is. a chance because it will

Rafati told The Associated Press.
"It is a threat because it may
make things worse for Iran in the
long run."

UN chief calls for


US-North Korean talks
0 UNITED NATIONS

SECRETARY-GENERAL Kofi Annan urged the United States
on Wednesday to hold bilateral talks with North Korea and called on the
communist nation not to escalate an "extremely difficult" situation,
according to Associated Press.
Annan expressed concern at North Korea's reported nuclear test
Monday, its threat to conduct another test and its warning that U.N.
sanctions would be tantamount to a declaration of war moves that
have heightened tensions especially in Japan arid South Korea.
"I would urge the North Korean authorities not to escalate the situ-
ation any further," Annan told reporters. "We already have an extreme-
ly difficult situation."
The United States said it hopes to circulate a revised U.N. resolution
on North Korea soon, with the U.S. still at odds with China over how
strong sanctions against North Korea should be.
The secretary-general said it's clear that North Korea's leader, Kim
Jong 1, "has not paid attention to the will of the international community
and all the appeals that have been made to him."
Asked whether he believes the United States and North Korea
should hold bilateral talks, Annan said: "I have always argued that we
should talk to parties whose behavior we want to change, whose behav-
ior we want to influence, and from that point of view I believe that...
(the) U.S. and North Korea should talk."
The United States has refused to talk one-on-one with North Korea
except on the margins of six-party talks aimed at persuading the North
to abandon its nuclear program.
But North Korea has boycotted the talks for over year, demanding
instead that the U.S. drop financial sanctions it has imposed to punish
Pyongyang for alleged counterfeiting and money laundering.
Annan expressed hope that North Korea would respond positively to
appeals from around the world to return to the six-party talks which
involve the two Koreas, the U.S., Japan, China and Russia, stressing that
"the talks are necessary."
As for U.S.-North Korea talks, Annan said, "whether it's done in the
context of the six-party talks or separately, one must talk."
The -;ecrc(jr -.n. r 1 spoke as the five permanent Security Council
members th.e U.S., China, Russia, Britain and France and Japan,
which holds the council presidency this month, met to try to bridge dif-
ferences on a U.S. draft resolution that would impose sanctions on
North Korea for defying its appeal not to conduct a test. Experts from
the 15 Security Council nations also were meeting to go over the text.
The United States and Japan have urged the council to act swiftly to
adopt the resolution.
"There are a number of disagreements," U.S. Ambassador John
Bolton said after the meeting. "We think the fact that North Korea has
conducted a nuclear test does amount to a clear threat to internation-
al peace and security and warrants action under Chapter 7 of the U.N.
Charter as well as a variety of strong measures.
"There's not agreement on all of those points, so we're continuing to
press ahead and we'll have to see what further discussions entail," he
said.
Chapter 7 includes a range of measures to deal with threats to inter-
national peace and conflicts, ranging from breaking diplomatic relations
and imposing naval blockades to military action.
Annan stressed the importance of the council maintaining the unity
in its initial statement condemning the test.
"What is important is the Security Council has spoken with one
voice that the action of the North Korean government was unacceptable
and it complicates an already difficult security situation in the Kore-
an peninsula," Annan said.
"I suspect the council will come together and take firm action against
North Korea. Discussions are going on, and I hope they will be able to
come up with one voice," he said.
Annan said the council should take its time and come up with mea-
sures that are not only effective but "sustainable."

Report: 300 monkeys are to be banished



from New Delhi, relocated to central India


* NEW DELHI


THE Supreme Court
ordered wildlife authorities to
catch around 300 monkeys that
roam free in the Indian capi-
tal, often terrorizing residents,
and relocate them to forests
thousands of miles away in
another state, a newspaper
reported Wednesday, accord-
ing to Associated Press.
The Rhesus macaques will
be shifted from New Delhi to
the dense jungles of'Madhya
Pradesh, and that state's gov-
ernment will receive 2.5 mil-
lion rupees (US$54,000) from
the federal government to cov-
er the cost of their rehabilita-
tion, the Hindu reported.
Government buildings, tem-
ples and many residential
neighborhoods of New Delhi
are overrun by an army of
macaques. The monkeys scare
pass'ers-by, and occasionally
bite or snatch food from unsus-
pecting visitors.
For years, state animal wel-
fare agencies have tried to rid
the capital of the simian
scourge, but their efforts have
,been defeated, in part, by Indi-
a's Hindus who believe that
monkeys are manifestations of
the monkey god, Hanuman.
Many feed the monkeys
nuts, bread and bananas,
encouraging the animals to fre-
quent parks, temples and other
public places.
Scores of monkeys caught by
animal handlers in the past
have been left to languish in
cages while the government
ponders what to do with them.
This has sparked protests by
animal rights activists who
accuse the government of cru-
elty and say the animals should
be rehabilitated.
The Supreme Court ruling
Tuesday started with a petition
by an animal rights activist say-
ing the animals would die if
Held in captivity for too long.
Six states in north India have

moving forward OPEC to cut production by one
3 M ABUJA, Nigeria
OPEC has agreed to trim global oil production by
million barrels a day to boost prices, and its members,
were discussing how to share the cut, the cartel's pres-
ident said Wednesday, according to Associated Press.
Oil prices rose after his comments.
"The cut itself is agreed," said Nigerian oil minister
and OPEC president Edmund Daukoru.
Daukoru told reporters after a Cabinet meeting in
the Nigerian capital that the cuts would begin.at the
end of the month and said members of the producing
cartel were "nearing consensus" on how to share the
IL FIIcuts.


million barrels of oil per day
Daukoru's comments followed a slew of reports
attributed to anonymous sources from member coun-
tries who said the cartel plans to trim its daily pro-'i
duction by 1 million barrels.
Daukoru had said last week that OPEC was con-
sidering holding an emergency meeting before its<
scheduled Dec. 14 conference to discuss what to do %
about falling prices.
Oil prices have fallen sharply in recent weeks from '
their mid-July high of $78.40 on the New York Mer-
cantile Exchange.
By Wednesday afternoon in Europe, light, sweet-
crude for November delivery was at $58.70 a barrel, up 4
slightly from the opening price.

Blair's likely successor opposed


Iraq invasion until days before


war, British ex-minister says


* LONDON
TREASURY chief Gordon
Brown opposed the 2003 U.S.-
led invasion of Iraq but made a
last minute decision to support
the military action rather than
lose his high-ranking post, a
former senior colleague
claimed on Wednesday,
according to Associated Press.
Brown, widely seen as likely
to succeed Tony Blair as prime
.minister, was involved in tense
discussions in cabinet meetings
ahead of a parliamentary vote
to authorize the intervention,
former Home Secretary David
Blunkett said in extracts of his
diary published in two British
newspapers.
Two other cabinet ministers
critical of the invasion resigned
in protest, but Brown-made a
last minute reverse, choosing
to rally support for Blair, Blun-
kett said.
Blunkett said Brown
changed his stance five days
before a House of Commons
vote on March 18,2003, which
was won by Blair's govern-
ment.
"Gordon had decided he was
coming on board," Britain's


The Guardian and Daily Mail
newspapers recorded Blunkett
as dictating on diary tapes on
March 13,2003.
Discussion of Brown's initial
opposition to the Iraq invasion
appeared likely to offer the
Treasury chief room to distance
himself from Blair's unpopu-
lar decision to back the war -
considered potentially crucial
to win favor among left-leaning
factions of the governing
Labour party ahead of
next year's leadership
contest.

Support
The revelation could also
help Brown recover ground
already lost to opposition Con-
servatives leader David
Cameron ahead of their likely
2009 election battle, winning
him the support of those who
deserted Blair who will step
down in 2007 in protest over
the military action.
Blunkett, who is blind and
recorded his thoughts onto
audio tapes for transcription,
hinted that Brown had initially
considered the invasion as an
opportunity to unseat Blair and


seize his position as prime min-
ister.
"I think there's a realization
by him (Brown) that Tony isn't
going ... he either bats in and
holds on to the Chancellor's
job or he fails to bat and Tony
will take him out when the mil-
itary action is finished," Blun-
kett said in a diary entry.
Brown on Tuesday rejected
Blunkett's claims and said "if
he is reported as saying that,
he has been entirely misquot-
ed."
The Treasury chief's
spokesman was not immedi-
ately available for comment
Wednesday.
Blair's official spokesman
said Wednesday he would not
comment on the content of
Blunkett's diaries due to be
published as the book "The
Blunkett Tapes" next week.
Asked if Blair had read the
excerpts serialized by British
newspapers, the spokesman,
who speaks on condition of
anonymity, said "I certainly
don't think so.",
Blunkett recorded in the
tapes that he now believes
Blair's cabinet underestimated
public opposition to the Iraq
war, despite a rally of an esti-

mated million protesters in
London in February 2003.
"Although we understood
the tremendously deep and
passionate feelings generated
by the, Iraq issue, I don't think
that at that stage we fully
appreciated just how long and
how deep the split would be,"
Blunkett said in the extracts
published Wednesday.
Blunkett claimed that senior
ministers had repeatedly raised
concerns over a lack of prepa-
ration for the aftermath of the
Iraq conflict, asking what plans
were in place to reconfigure the
Iraqi army and the country's
administrative and security
apparatus.

Questions
He said they were questions
which "Tony (Blair) was raising
personally with (U.S. Presi-
dent) George (W.) Bush but
which were never satisfactorily
answered."
The legislator, seen as a key
Blair ally, twice resigned senior
cabinet jobs, quitting as Home
Secretary in December 2004
following revelations of his
affair with married American
magazine publisher Kimberly

More than 600,000 Iraqis dead


because of the war, study says


* NEW YORK
A CONTROVERSIAL
new study contends nearly
655,000 Iraqis have died
because of the war, suggest-
ing a far higher death toll
than other estimates, accord-
ing to Associated Press.
SThe timing of the survey's
release, just a few weeks
before the U.S. congression-
al elections, led one expert
to call it "politics."
In the new study,
researchers attempt to cal-
culate how many more Iraqis
jtave died since March 2003
than one would expect with-
out the war. Their conclu-
sion, based on interviews of
households and not a body
count, is that about 600,000
died from violence, mostly
gunfire. They also found a
small increase in deaths from
other causes like heart dis-
ease and cancer.


"Deaths are occurring in
Iraq now at a rate more than
three times that from before
the invasion of March 2003,"
Dr. Gilbert Burnham, lead
author of the study, said in a
statement.
The study by Burnham, of
the Johns Hopkins
Bloomberg School of Public
Health, and others is to be
published Thursday on the
Web site of The Lancet, a
medical journal.
An accurate count of Iraqi
deaths has been difficult to
obtain, but one respected
group puts its rough estimate
at closer to 50,000. And at
least one expert was skepti-
cal of the new findings.
"They're almost certainly
way too high," said Anthony
Cordesman of the Center for
Strategic & International
Studies in Washington. He
criticized the way the esti-
mate was derived and noted


Experts exhume bodies of


Srebrenica victims in Bosnia

U SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina

FORENSIC experts said Wednesday they exhumed more
than 100 bodies from the sixth mass grave found in a village in
'eastern Bosnia where Serb forces buried some of the almost
8,000 victims of Europe's worst massacre since World War II,
according to Associated Press.
The team exhumed 96 complete and 64 incomplete bodies
from the mass grave at Krcevine on the border with Serbia.
Local and international experts have been digging for years in
the area, finding so-called "secondary" mass graves.
"All of the complete bodies had blindfolds on their skulls and
.we also found bullets mixed with the bodies," said the head of
the government forensic team, MuratHlurtic.
'. Serb troops in 1995 overran the eastern Bosnian enclave of
Srebrenica, which the United Nations had declared a safe zone,
ind killed as many as 8,000 Muslim men and boys. The victims
found in this mass grave were among the 700 Srebrenica men
,and boys who were gathered together in a school in a nearby vil-
age, executed and buried in a mass grave in the nearby village
7of Grbavci, said Hurtic.
He said information about the site came from a witness who
'survived the execution.
In order to hide the crime, the perpetrators later reburied the
bodies in various other locations the "secondary" mass
graes. MIuch of the moving was done with bulldozers, which
comnplicates the exhumation and identification process because
parts of the same body can be found in two or even three dif-
,ferent places.
Forensic teams have been uncovering mass graves throughout
0Bosnia in recent years, collecting the remains and extracting
DNA to be matched with family members. Once a match is
found, the body is returned to the family for burial..
Of the 3,500 bodies of Srebrenica victims excavated so far,
2,500 have been identified through DNA and some 2,000 buried
in a cemetery in the Srebrenica suburb of Potocari, where the
victims were last seen alive.

that the results were
released shortly before the
Nov. 7 election.
"This is not analysis, this is
politics," Cordesman said.
The work updates an ear-
lier Johns Hopkins study -
that one was released just
before the November 2004
presidential election. At the
time, the lead researcher,
Les Roberts of Hopkins,
said the timing was deliber-
ate. Many of the same
researchers were involved in
the latest estimate.
Speaking of the new study,
Burnham said the estimate
was much higher than oth-
ers because it was derived
from a house-to-house sur-
vey rather than approaches
that depend on body counts
or media reports.
A private group called
Iraqi Body Count, for exam-
ple, says it has recorded
about 44,000 to 49,000 civil-
ian Iraqi deaths. But it notes
that those totals are based
on media reports, which it
says probably overlook
"many if not most civilian
casualties."
For Burnham's study,
researchers gathered data
from a sample of 1,849 Iraqi
households with a total of
12,801 residents from late
May to early July. That sam-
ple was used to extrapolate
the total figure.
The estimate deals with
deaths up to July.
The survey participants
attributed about 31 percent
of violent deaths to coalition
forces.
Accurate death tolls have
been difficult to obtain ever
since the Iraq conflict began
in March 2003. When top
Iraqi political officials cite
death numbers, they often
refuse to say where the num-
bers came from.
The Health Ministry,
which tallies civilian deaths,
relies on reports from gov-
ernment hospitals and
morgues.
The Interior Ministry com-
piles its figures from police
stations, while the Defense
Ministry reports deaths only
among army soldiers
and insurgents killed in com-
bat.
The United Nations keeps
its own count, based largely
on reports from the Bagh-
dad morgue and the Health
Ministry.
The major founder of the
new study was the Massa-
chusetts Institute of Tech-
nology.

openingg lead -- ace of spades.
Back in the 1950s, when Terence
ieese and Boris Schapiro went to
Vienna, Austria, to represent Great
Britain in the European champi-
nships, they agreed to play the then-
lew Texas Convention.
The convention applies when a
layer opens one notrump and his
partnerr has a good hand containing a
ong major suit. Instead of bidding
he suit, the responder jumps to four
)f the suit just below it in rank.
Thus, a jump to four diamonds
indicates that the real suit is hearts,
while a jump to four hearts indicates
spades. The notrump bidder then


converts the "transfer" to the appro-
priate suit and so becomes the de-
clarer. The principle underlying the
convention is that it is usually ad-
vantageous for the stronger hand to
be concealed during the play.
The convention has one big weak-
ness. Players sometimes absent-
mindedly forget they are using it. In
fact, when Reese and Schapiro de-
cided to play the convention, they
also agreed that the first one to forget
it would pay the other a fine of 100
Austrian schillings.
SSure enough, when the present
deal occurred,- Schapiro forgot and
jumped to four hearts instead of four
diamonds. Reese did not forget and
so dutifully bid four spades.
Panic-stricken, Schapiro now
jumped to six hearts, hoping Reese
would realize what had happened.
Reese caught on and passed.
West led the spade ace and then,
afraid Schapiro might be void of dia-
monds, mistakenly led another spade
instead of the ace of diamonds.
Declarer won with the queen and
cashed all six of his trumps, discard-
ing four diamonds from dummy. A
low, club to the king allowed
Schapiro to discard his diamond on
the spade king and also forced West
to part with a club, so the end result
was that the slam was made.
Commented Reese: afterward:
"So Britain got a lucky swing, andL
got 100 schillings."

Jim Plaskett v Lajos Portisch,
Oviedo 1993. A generation ago
Portisch was Hungary's number
one, a world-title candidate
playing in a controlled style
whose iron logic earned rave
reviews from critics. You would
expect grandmasters to become
more staid and safety conscious
as they get older, but praxis
shows that ageing players
sometimes lose their sense of
danger and chase after material
to an extent they would not
have risked in their heyday. Here
Portisch has two extra pawns,
and has reckoned on 1 Qxh8+
Kxc7 with chances to escape
White's attack and win with his
passed d3 pawn. What had he
overlooked?

The bidding:
South West North East
Pass 1 V Dble Pass
2 4 Pass 44
Opening lead king of hearts. '
This deal features a type of play
that is frequently overlooked. West
leads the K-A and another heart after
East plays high-low to show a dou-
bleton. East ruffs and returns a club,
and South goes up with the ace, since
both the bidding and the club return
indicate that West has the king.
Declarer must now score the rest
of the tricks to make the contract.
Obviously, this can't be done unless


a


he can find a way to avoid the club
loser.
One possible solution is to draw
the missing trumps and then cash the
A-Q-K of diamonds. If the opposing
diamonds are divided 3-3, dummy's
queen of clubs can be discarded on
South's fourth diamond.
If declarer relies solely on this
line of play, be winds up down one
. because the diamonds break 4-2.
But if South plays a bit more care-
fully, he can make the contract. After
taking the ace of clubs at trick four,
he should cash all of his trumps, dis-
carding the club six on dummy's
fifth trump to reduce his hand to the
K-7-5-2 of diamonds.
On dummy's last trump, West,
holding the J-10-8-6 of diamonds
and king of clubs, cannot discard
safely. A club discard would make
dummy's queen a trick, while a dia-
mond discard would allow declarer
to score four diamond tricks.
Observe that by adopting this
method of play, declarer preserves
his chances of making the contract if
the diamonds are divided 3-3, and at
the same time greatly increases his
chances by also catering to the possi-
bility that West has four or more dia-
monds.

2006. Former world title

form in the early rounds. His
opponent here was a

produced the game of his life 3
to put Short's king in danger.
White's knight combines with 2
its rooks much better than does
Black's bishop, and his next
move launched a sequence
which within a few turns gave
the Englishman the,
embarrassment of checkmate.

FRIDAY,
OCTOBER 13
ARIES March 21/April 20
You're ready to take a risk. You have
little to lose and only happiness to
gain. Love relations take an upward
turn by Thursday. Plan on a memo-
rable evening.
TAURUS April 21/May 21
Abandon an old project, Taurus, and
move on to something fresh. Your
career flourishes with the influx of
beginner's luck. Make the most of
your new-found success.
GEMINI May 22/June 21
You are moving forward with,
incredible speed, Gemini. Why not
slow down and enjoy the scenery
instead. Good fortune arrives just in
time for the weekend.
CANCER June 22/July 22
Feeling somewhat stressed, Cancer?
The stars encourage you to find
ways to make it easier on yourself.
Enlist the help of a close friend who
is also experiencing the same.
LEO July 23/August 23
Become a willing student this week,
Leo, and embrace the lessons the
world has to offer. You'll. find that
the answers are out there if you just
take the time to listen.
VIRGO Aug 24/Sept 22
Expect that system and order will not
be the course of this week, Virgo. If
you are prepared for the chaos, it will
be more easily accepted, especially
for one as organized as you.
LIBRA Sept 23/Oct 23
Be a good friend for a family mem-
ber on Tuesday. Set aside time to sit
and listen, but don't ask questions.
Use your troubleshooting ability to
set this person on a new course.
SCORPIO Oct 24/Nov 22
The key to this week is subtlety,
Scorpio. You'll achieve major gains
through small maneuvers. Pay atten-
tion to what that voice in your head is
telling you, and you can't go wrong.
SAGITTARIUS Nov 23/Dec 21
Look around you to see how your
ambitions fit into the big picture,
Sagittarius. However, don't climb
over others to reach the top.
Expect turmoil by week's end.
CAPRICORN Dec 22/Jan 20
Start to appreciate the little things,
Capricorn. Simple things like a walk
in the park are better than anything that
can be bought. Refresh your outlook
and you may find renewed happiness.
AQUARIUS Jan 21/Feb 18
Love is what you make of it, and
you're certainly looking for affec-
tion this week, Aquarius. Expect sur-
prises in this department. Friday
proves to be interesting.
PISCES Feb 19/March 20
Your pet project may be close to your
heart, but others don't seem as enthusi-
astic. Instead of giving up, find a new
angle that will be more interesting.

White mates in two moves,
against any defence (by Henk
Prins, 1981). One of the hardest
two-move problems ever
composed. At last month's world
solving championship in
Wageningen, Netherlands, the
British grandmaster team of
John Nunn, Jon Mestel and Colin
McNab all chose a wrong
answer. The trio were the
defending world champions and
their opening round disaster
plunged them to 13th place in a
field of 20 countries. But they
recovered completely in the
remaining tests of longer
problems and ran out gold
medallists again ahead of
Poland and Israel. Kudos to our
solvers and to City firm Winton
Capital Management which has
loyally sponsored the UK squad


a b c d e r g h
for several years. Back to the two-
mover, the difficulty is the large
number of plausible near-misses
on a crowded board. In the world
championship, competitors had
only 10 minutes to crack it, but you
will be doing very well If you can
work it out in half an hour.

Latin America able to



'take Bahamas captive


* By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
THE Bahamas has "a signif-
icant opportunity to del>'p a
captive insurance indus[r b\
attracting business from Latin
Akmerican corporate clients. a
financial services executive Sid
vesterda\. and in doing so pro-
vide major spin-offs for pro-
fessionals throughout the
Bahamian financial services
sector.
Hv'el Jones, the Britannia
Consulting Group's president,
said growing demand from
corporations across Latin
America, and deregulation of
insurance and reinsurance
markets throughout the
region, had glen the Bahamas
an opportunity to attract cap-
live insurance business from
these nations.
"We see significant oppor-


'Significant opportunity' to develop insurance

segment in Bahamas, adding value and

excellent' spin-offs across financial industry


tunities here to develop cap-
ti e insurance business '\esee
significant potential No one
has reallN been focusing on
Latin America." NMr Jones said
"AsIeen with Bermuda and
the Calman lands, those suc-
cessful captives acquire huge
amounts ot premium revenue.
These assets accumulate, and
have to be managed, so the
spin-ofts for other financial
institutions are excellent.
-Running captives is more
complex and more time con-


suing. but because you re
adding more vale. \ou can
charge more '
The establishment of a sig-
nificant captive insurance
industry in the Bahamas would
create work for Bahamas-
based accountants, as the\
require an annual audit, and
attorneys. Private bankers and
investment managers would be
required to manage and invest
the assets accumulated in the
captives as a result of premi-
um payments.


The Government has been
keen to re-establish the
Bahamas as a captive insur-
ance jurisdiction, and has been
developing a new External
Insurance Act.
NIr Jones said that if 600 cap-
ntes were attracted to domi-
cile in the Bahamas, the Reg-
istrar of Insurance would earn
1.5 inullion in extra fee income
based on the current payments
structure.

Port Authority not

'a toy one plays with'


* By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter
and NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
FREEPORT Former Grand
Bahama Port Authority co-
chairman and chief executive,
Julian Francis, has warned par-
ties interested in acquiring that
organisation that it is not "a toy
that one plays with".
He stressed that any interest-
ed bidders parties must be cred-
- ible and have the financial
means to support, when neces-
sary, the development of
Freeport.
There has been strong inter-
est expressed in purchasing the
Grand Bahama Port Authori-
ty, and its related assets held
under Port Group Ltd.
PLP Senator Philip Galanis
and attorney Harvey Tynes rep-
resented a group of unknown
Bahamian investors, who made
an approach to acquire the Port
Authority and Port Group Ltd.
However, their bid was
turned down by Sir Jack Hay-
ward, although Mr Galanis said
he left the door open to revisit
their offer. He said the bid was
backed by $400 million in capi-
tal, and eventually planned a
public offering to Bahamians.
Hannes Babak, the Port


SJULILLAN Francis,


Authority's current chairman,
had also previously sought to
put a group together to pur-
chase the Port Authority, but
told The Tribune he had
dropped that ambition v ith his
appointment.
It is understood that the bid
represented by Mr Galanis and
Mr Tynes has been placed on,
the backburner, until the dis-
pute over the late Edward Si
George's estate including his
50 per cent share in the Port
Authority is sorted out.

THE Bahamas Film Studios' former ^ *
president, Paul Quigley, has "been 11111fa KClll111 rcStructCun g
relieved of all duties" with the investment m c i i restuct rin


project where Pirates of the Caribbean II
and Ill were filmed, it was announced yes-
terday. as the company moved ahead with
its restructuring plans.
Ross Fuller, the Nashville-based invest-
ment banker w ho is chairman and director
of the Bahamas Filmpi Studios' at Gold
Rock Creek, said in an e-mailed replh to
The Tribune's questions that Mir Quiglev
"as released follow ing a "unanimous
vote" among the Board of Directors.
No explanation %%as given for the rea-
sons behind MNr Quigle 's departure.
Nir Quigley was one of the three found-
ing partners behind the $76 million


Bahamas Film Studios investment pro-
ject. which was the first to be approved by
Prime Minister Perry Christie's adminis-
iration in 2002.
However, both his fellow founding part-
ners. Hans Schutte and Michael Collyer.,
tragically passed away.
The Tribune had been told earlier this
year that MNr Quigley was coming under
increasing pressure from investors backing
the Bahamas Film Studios to produce
profits and a return on investment for


them. It "as thought that the project's
financial backers were not as 'emotional-
l1 attached' as Mr Schutte and Mr CoUlver.
and were keener on seeing a rapid return
on their investment.
Nh Fuller said in a statement that a new
management team for the Bahamas Film
Studios would soon be named, although he
declined to answer The Tribune's ques-
tions on their identities.

Commerce's president yester-
day called for a "co-ordinated,

stakeholders to be developed

ing US passports, as a leading

potential American tourists.
Tanya Wright said that giv-

national well-being, it was crit-

"rally ourselves together" to
devise a strategy and consistent
message that would encourage
US tourists to obtain a passport

Bahamian bank and trust com-
panies have a common law and
statutory duty of confidentiality to
their clients under Section 15 (1)
of the Banks & Trust Companies
Regulation Act 2000, and the
common law principles outlined
in numerous English and Bahami-
an cases involving the duty of
confidentiality.
The duty of confidentiality is
contractual in nature, and is
premised upon the express and
implied terms of the banker-cus-
tomer contract on the establish-
ment of the relationship between
those two parties.
Generally, the duty is a fidu-
ciary duty that a banker owes to
the customer, and upon which he
can be sued for breach of con-
tract for unlawful or unauthorised
disclosure of information to a
third party.
The duty of confidentiality not
only applies to a customer's
account information, but it also
extends to information relating
to a customer's financial affairs
generally.
This is unless the bank's dis-
closure of a client's banking or
financial information falls within
one of the four exceptions to the
duty of confidentiality, as
expounded in the English case of
Tournier v. National Provincial
and Union Bank of England
[1924] 1 KB 461, notably, the duty
to disclose client information to a
third party: (a) under compulsion
of law; (b) in the public's interest;
(c) in the bank's interest; or (d)
with the express or implied con-
sent of the customer.
But if dicslosure does not fall
under one of these exceptions,
the bank will be in breach of the
duty of confidentialityand, ulti-
mately, the implied terms of the
banker-customer contract.
However, it should be noted
that compliance with the duty of
confidentiality in the Bahamas
must now be, viewed within the
framework of the provisions of
the Data Protection (Privacy of
Personuilnformation) Act 2003,
which was enacted in June 2003
(although not presently in force).


The Data Protection Act is
designed to protect the privacy
of personal information on indi-
viduals, particularly consumers,
locally and jurisdictionally.
Under the provisions of the
Data Protection Act, persons col-
lecting and using personal data on
individuals are required to observe
and abide by specific standards of
confidentiality, and are prohibited
from transferring personal data to
jurisdictions with less stringent
data protection legislation with-
out the consent of the person from
whom the data is obtained.
, Considerations of the com-
bined effect of the duty'of confi-
dentiality and the Data Protec-
tion Act (when enforced) will
require banks to effectively
process the personal information
of customers within the provi-
sions of the Act, while maintain-
ing their statutory and common
law duty not to disclose such
information to a third party.
In effect, the combination of
the legal requirements under the
duty of confidentiality and the
Data Protection Act would mean
that the transmission of a cus-
tomer's personal information by a
bank through its computing sys-
tem to a third-party company
within its bank group, without the
customer's consent, would be an
unlawful processing of informa-
tion under the Data Protection
Act and an offence.
In anticipation of the enforce-
ment of the Data Protection Act,
and to preserve their statutory and
common law duty of confidential-


ity, banks will be encouraged to
review their existing procedures
regarding the use of personal infor- '
nation provided;by customers of a
the bank, particularly where such
information may be used in mar-
keting or cross-selling products and
services to customers by other
companies within their group, with
no prior consent or authorisation
obtained from the customer.
Similarly, the misuse of per-
sonal information by internal staff
members for a purpose other
than the purpose for which the
information was originally and/or
contractually obtained from the
customer ,and the implications of
such action within the provisions -
of the Data Protection Act, may s
also need review in anticipation of .,q
the Act's enforcement.

THE TRIBUNE


* By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Business Reporter
THE Family Islands saw a strong 8 per
cent increase in total visitor arrivals during
July, with cruise ship private island visits
possibly causing the downturn in sea
arrivals to New Providence and Grand
Bahama.
According to the latest statistics
released by the Ministry of Tourism, air
and sea arrivals to Nasaau/Paradise Island
and Grand Bahama were down by 17 per
cent and 19 per cent respectively in July.
Despite Grand Bahama's negative fig-
ures for July, the island saw an increase of
6 per cent in arrivals during the first seven
months of 2006. However, overall the entire
Bahamas saw a 3 per cent decrease in total


arrivals for the first seven months in 2006.
Nassau/Paradise Island saw a decrease
of 5 per cent in total arrivals to July, while
the Family Islands experienced a drop of
3 per cent.
Looking at air arrivals, Long Island,
which has seen a tremendous economic
fallout due to the problems surrounding
the Stella Maris Airport, continued to suf-
fer with a decrease of 80 per cent.
Cat Island was the only island to post an
increase in air arrivals during July, with all
the other islands seeing decreases of
between 4 and 19 per cent.Bimini saw a
decrease of 18 per cent.
As far as cruise arrivals went, arrivals to
the Family Islands were up by 24 per cent
for June for first port of entry whereas,
arrivals to Nassau/Paradise Island were


down by 22 per cent and 24 per cent to
Grand Bahama.
This caused a 10 per cent decrease for
the Bahamas overall.
The year-to-July figures indicate that
cruise arrivals to Grand Bahama were up
22 per cent, while Nassau/Paradise Island
saw a decrease of 10 per cent, the Family
Islands were down 3 per cent, and cruise
arrivals to the Bahamas overall were down
by 5 per cent.
According to the Ministry of Tourism,
the sea arrivals were down in July because
the major cruise lines, including Royal
Caribbean, International, Imperial
Majesty Cruise, Princes Cruises and Dis-
ney Cruises, all brought in fewer passen-
gers and gave similar reasons for the
upturn which were experienced.

Conference is attracted by 'Exuma's boom stage'


* By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Business
Reporter
WITH construction and
development in Exuma at an
all-time high, the business com-
munity on that island is about to
benefit from its first-ever Busi-
ness Outlook on October 18,
2006.
Joan Albury, the conference
coordinator and president of
The Counsellors, which is host-
ing the one-day event, said the
island is experiencing exciting
days.
"We realise that this is the
right time to do this. What is
going on right now is new and
exciting, and lots of people are
moving back to the island."
Ms Albury said this was par-
ticularly a result of the success
of the anchor property The
Emerald Bay/Four Seasons,
where4th..conference will.be
held under the theme Success


in a new Business Environment.
"Our venue is the Four Sea-
sons Resort, and we intend to
deliver a five-star product. As
Exuma natives are actively
becoming entrepreneurs, we are
sure our scheduled speakers
and topics will be of serious
interest to those attending the
conference and the community
in general," she said.
Chester Cooper, president
and chief executive of British
American Insurance Company,
who is to head a panel discus-
sion at the conference, noted
that the Four Seasons changed
the landscape of Exuma.
He said the challenge now is
for the island to expand its
economy in other areas, with
the entrepreneurial spirit on the
island needing to continue its
awakening.
Floyd Armbrister, an Exuma
realtor, saidit was now the
island's turn to shine, as, for
.many years it had watched


development take place on oth-
er islands
"Now Exuma is in a boom
stage, and this is an ideal time
for residents to take advantage
of the opportunities to partici-
pate in the economy rather than
be spectators," Mr Armbrister
said.

Leadership

He added that while Exuma
was experiencing the boom, it
was important that residents fill
the leadership void that cur-
rently exsits.
Mr Armbrister said that if
residents were not at the table
when decisions were made,
then they will be forced to
accept whatever decisions are
made for them.
Mr Armbrister added that in
his capacity as Exuma's licens-
ing authority chairman, every
week there ate more and rhfre


applications being made for
businesses of all kinds.
In just a few short years, Exu-
ma had gone from one bank to
three banks, with a total of four
locations.
The men both felt there were
unexplored business opportu-
nity for indigenous Exumians,
particular in the area of pro-
viding quality entertainment
and culture opportunities for
persons visiting the hotels and
resorts.
Speakers are to include:
Tourism Minister Obie Wil-
chombe; Reg Smith, president
of the Exuma Chamber of
Commerce; Heuter Rolle,
managing director, SkyBa-
hamas Airlines; Lesley John-
son, architect, Dr Pandora
Johnson, vice-president of the
College of the Bahamas; and
Dr Livingston Marshall, senior
vice-president of the environ-
ment and community affairs,
Bakers Bay.

Describing Cypress Equities'
Plans for Royal Island as one
Sof the Government's so-called
anchor properties' for the
SNorth Eleuthera area, Mr Peet
said "negotiations are certainly
continuing" and the project was
"very much alive".
He added that all the rele-
vant government agencies were
involved in the negotiation and
approvals process.
Mr Peet said of the project:
"It will bring a lot of needed
investment and economic activ-
ity to that part of the Bahamas,
and has a uniqueness about it
which we will talk about when
we sign the Heads of Agree-
ment."
He added that he was unable
to say when the Heads of
Agreement negotiations would
be concluded.
In announcing the agreement
with Jack Nicklaus and his com-
pany, Nicklaus Design, to
design the golf course, Cypress
Equities said Royal Island was
the first of 25 clubs it planned to
create around the world.
Its plans for Royal Island
include private residences, Jack
Nicklaus Golf Club, marina,
boutique five-star hotel, and
spa.
Cypress Equities is an affiliate
of Staubach Retail, a Dallas-
based real estate firm headed
by former Dallas Cowboys
quarterback and NFL great,
Roger Staubach.
In a statement, Mr Staubach
Said: "Royal Island is Cypress
Equities' first resort develop-
ment, so we are thrilled to be
selected by Jack's team for the
first Jack Nicklaus Golf Club.
"They are, without question,
* the top golf course designers in
the world, and we are happy to
provide them with an ideal loca-
tion a beautiful jewel of an
island in the Bahamas -for this
exciting golf course concept."
Royal Island is a 480-acre
undeveloped island, uninhabit-
ed and crowned by 30-foot high
cliffs near Spanish Wells, and


boasting what Cypress Equities
has described as the largest nat-
ural protected deep water har-
bour in the Bahamas at its cen-
tre.
The company is planning to
offer single family estate sites,
nestled within private enclaves,
to its clients, most with ocean
views. The deep water marina


will be capable of docking
yachts ranging from 20 to over
200 feet in length, with the mari-
na surrounded by a village cen-
tre of retail shops and ameni-
ties.
Access to Royal Island will
be seaborne, either by yacht or
a 10-minute ferry ride from
North Eleuthera.

FROM page one
Mr Fuller added that "it was
time to take the company to the
next level", and the Bahamas
Film Studios was now being
assisted by an advisory board
featuring "well-known names"
in the entertainment industry.
He again declined to reveal
their identities.
The Tribune revealed earli-
er this year that Bahamian
investment banker Owen
Bethel, president of the
Bahamas-based Montaque
Group, had helped to put
together a group of new and
existing investors in the
Bahamas Film Studios in a bid
to restructure the company's
financial set-up and take it over.
Mr Bethel was off-island yes-
terday and unavailable for com-
ment, but The Tribune under-
stands that the due diligence
period for his group consisting
off a mixture of new and old
investors in the Bahamas Film
Studios had been extended
from August to September.
SIt is unclear whether Mr
Bethel and the group he was
working with are still involved
in efforts to restructure the


Bahamas Film Studios.
Mr Fuller said he was "not at
liberty to discuss" the bid by Mr
Bethel's group "at this juncture".
In his e-mailed reply to The
Tribune, Mr Fuller said little on
the restructuring apart from:
"We are at the dawn of a new
era. Our mission is to provide a
state-of-the-art filming and pro-
duction facility on the island of
Grand Bahama.
"Just as world-renowned chef
Wolfgang Puck does not share
the recipes for his culinary mas-
terpieces, we prefer to allow
you to enjoy the end product."
Mr Fuller added, though, that
the Bahamas Film Studios were
holding talks with "several pro-
duction companies" about pos-
sibly filming at the location,
although he declined to reveal
any details.
He said: "We have seen an
overwhelming interest in our
facility. We have a unique prod-
uct in a wonderful environment
where-the water is beautiful
beyond belief. We have a solid
infrastructure in a sustainable
business atmosphere with an
available workforce.
"The tank is one of the
largest such filming facilities in
the world. That combined with
our facilities, and our strategic
location offer creative and fiscal
advantages available nowhere

The Bahamas Film Studios
currently employs less than 25
staff, but Mr Fuller said the
complex hoped to "very soon"
increase this back to the 550-
plus hired for the Pirates of the
Caribbean II and III filming.
The studios' immediate hold-
ing company, Gold Rock Creek
Enterprises, is facing a lawsuit
filed in Miami, but the company
has denied the allegation that
it has failed to meet lease pay-
ments on the 3,500-acre facility,
saying that all payments to the
Bahamian government were up
to date.
Mr Fuller previously
described the lawsuit's allega-
tions as "lacking merit", adding:
"We are confident they will be
thrown out of court."
The lawsuit was filed in Mia-
mi-Dade County Circuit Court
by the Bahamas Films Studios
Inc, a company unrelated to the
Bahamas Film Studios or Gold
Rock Creek Enterprises.
Mr Fuller described the
Bahamas Films Studios Inc as a
"shell corporation" founded by
a Bjorn Monteine.
The lawsuit alleged that the
Bahamas Film Studios had been
in financial turmoil, projects
have been undercapitalised, and
it owed significant debts to var-
ious investors.

able to 'take

Bahamas

captive'

FROM page one
He added that the pro-
jected annual spending per
captive in the Bahamas was
more than $20,000.
Mr Jones explained that
captive insurance companies
were established to enable
the entities or persons they
were ensuring to manage
their own risk.
Adding that captives had
to be doing business and
writing and managing real
risks, Mr Jones said: "A cap-
tive company is oine that
accepts premiums from the
people who are insured by
that company. It is a private
insurance company. A cap-
tive does not do business
other than with people who
are who owners of the com-
pany. It doesn't insure third
parties."
Mr Jones said the Britan-
nia Consulting Group had
received approval from
Bahamian regulators to
establish an affiliate, BRI-
AT Holdings International
Broker Ltd, that will act as a
Bahamas-based and licensed
broker.
He added that the compa-
ny was now looking to open
offices in individual Latin
American countries that best
served those markets and
complied with their insur-
ance regulations, either as
licensed brokerages or con-
sultancies.
These offices, having
attracted captive business
from Latin American corpo-
rations and high net worth
clients, will then "feed" the
customers to BRIAT Hold-
ings International Broker
Ltd in the Bahamas.
Mr Jones said BRIAT
Holdings International Bro-

Francis: Port Authority not 'a toy'


FROM page one
His daughter by his first wife,
'Caroline St George, has initiat-
ed legal proceedings in the
Bahamas, claiming that assets
tshe owns have been co-mingled
with her father's, most notable
in Port Group Ltd and the
'Grand Bahama Development
Company (Devco)..
She is also alleging that
monies from a trust fund set up
Ifor her and her sister, Sarah,
may have been used by her
father to acquire his Port
'Authority shares.
And Mr St George's former
second wife, Mary St George,
thas also began proceedings in
New York, although she is now
back at the negotiating table.
SThe Hayward and St George
,families are the major share-
,holders in the Port Authority
and Port Group Ltd. The latter
holds assets such as company
ithe Grand Bahama Develop-
iment Company, Freeport Har-
bour Company and Grand
lBahama Airport Company.
I Mr Francis, who was speaking
Iat the Rotary Club of Lucaya,
(said that before any sale can
happen, there first needs to be
support and cooperation of
from the existing shareholders
of the Port, whoever they might
be. 4
'"There is some discussions
I going on within one of the fam-
ilies, and I think that it is going
I to be important that that is
resolved in order for other
things to be possible," Mr Fran-
cis explained.
,Assuming that the existing
shareholders would be accom-
modating to a change of own-
ership of some kind, Mr Francis
then indicated that the Gov-
ernmnient would have to have a
say about whoever (domestic
or foreign) might step in.
I If such a proposal would meet
Sthe agreement of the Govern-
ment, and accepted by the exist-
ing shareholders, Mr Francis
said he did not see any reasons
why a deal of that kind would
not be acceptable.
"But, I think it is very impo;-

"I think it would be very

parties would be that they meet

less, in my opinion, for persons
who borrow the money and
don't have the means to sup-
port, when necessary, the devel-
opment of Freeport."
"So, it has to be parties who
do have those resources. And I
really believe that one would
be a little bit ill-advised to go
down that road without recog-


nising also. in some way, the
interest of the community and
maybe even the broader
Bahamian community."
"In other words, we are talk-
ing about moving away from

joined 17 months ago, no one
could tell you what the Port
Group Company was."
Several licensee sources have
recently told The Tribune that
the various parties interested in
acquiring the Port Authority
and its related assets, especially
the Galanis/Tynes bid, should
reveal their intentions and plans
for developing Freeport if they
were to succeed.
A number of people have


questioned how a $400 million
offer would be structured finan-
cially, and where any equity
would come from. Very few
Bahamian investor groups
would have access to the equity
required, meaning that any such
bid as proposed by Mr Galanis
and Mr Tynes is likely to
require a large amount of debt
financing.
Financial sources have sug-
gested that the collateral for this


debt would be assets of compa-
nies such as Devco, and
expressed concerns that a large
chunk of the cash flow generat-
ed by these entities would be
eaten up by debt servicing costs.
They added that this raised
fears whether any such bid
would be sustainable, especial-
ly as Mr St George had kept the
Port Authority and Port Group
Ltd balance sheet relatively
debt free.

Churches urged to help


FROM page one
In a statement, Bishop Hall
said that given that the
Bahamas was likely to be
among the nations "most
severely impacted" by the
Western Hemisphere Travel
Initiative's (WHTI) introduc-
tion, "the Bahamian church
should play a significant role in
assisting government in getting
the word out".
"There are nearly 4,000
churches scattered across our
Bahamas, and if each of us were
, to use our US connection to
inform these sister churches
regarding this new requirement,
a giant step would be made,"
Bishop Hall said.
"The seriousness of this new
challenge facing our tourism


industry has not yet reached
'the man on the streets', and
Ministry of Tourism officials
would be wise to encourage all
Bahamians to use already-
established connections in the
US to help minimise the nega-
tive impact this policy will have
on our number one industry."
And Bishop Hall added: "It is
a latent Bahamian trait to wait
for the last minute, and then we
seek to trouble God with the
results of our own inertia."
Rather than just offer
prayers, Bishop Hall said
churches needed to get involved
through "concrete action and
social involvement", with
Bahamians using all available
resources to meet the challenge
as they had done in the past. .

The Tribune yesterday that the
Bahamas required a "co-ordi-
nated effort" to develop "a con-
sistent message" that would aid
attempts to lobby the US gov-
ernment and Congress for a fur-
ther extension of the January
8, 2007, passport deadline for
air travellers.
"The more organised we
appear to be, and demonstrate
we are, the more likely an
extension is to be given," she
explained.
The Bahamas, Mrs Wright
said, needed to show what it
would do with the extra time if
an extension was given, and
while lobbying it needed to
maximise its efforts to inform
and encourage potential US
travellers to obtain a passport.
To help get the message out,


Mrs Wright suggested that
hotels could offer incentives to
tourists who booked and
planned to travel with passports,
while the College of the
Bahamas (COB) could reach!
out to associated student bodies
in the US.
Signage explaining the pass-
port situation needed to be
posted prominently at all
points of entry to the Bahamas,
the Chamber president added,
and a commercial advertising
campaign undertaken on tele-
vision.
Given that many Bahamiah
private and public sector entities
now had websites, Mrs Wright
suggested that they should place
messages regarding the US
passport situation on their site.

reduce passport effect


'interest in the Bahamas and
Bahamas-related websites, she
suggested this would be a useful
mechanism for getting the mes-
Psage out.
S Mrs Wright said: "We have
to plan for it, and the Govern-
ment must maintain its efforts
,to whatever it can for the hotels
,'and ground tourism industry.
"With that backdrop, I think
"we can lobby for an extension.
,Otherwise, why would they take
fus seriously?"
Mrs Wright said a third pillar
of the Bahamas strategy should
be an assessment of the pass-
port-issuing process in the US,
,ensuring this was as seamless as
possible so that potential'
tourists were not deterred from
,applying.
The US Congress has placed
the Bahamian resort industry
at a competitive disadvantage,
as it has approved amendments
to the WHTI that extend the
deadlines for US citizens
returning home via cruise ship
or land to possess a valid pass-
port.
The amendments delay the
implementation of the passport
requirements until June 1,2009,
for US citizens returning home
via the Canadian and Mexican
borders, and for cruise ship pas-
sengers returning from the
0Bahamas and the Caribbean.
p. A 2005 study prepared for the
Caribbean Hotel Association
by the World Travel and
Tourism Council (WTTC)
found that in a worst-case sce-
nario, the Bahamas could lose
S13,134 tourism jobs and $446
million in per annum earnings -
some 21.7 per cent of its cur-
rent tourism earnings total if
the US had introduced the ini-
tiative at its previous deadline -
December 31, 2005.
The Bahamas would be the
tLhird most affected nation in the
Caribbean in terms of lost

CARIBBEAN GI


tourism earnings, the survey
found.
SThe WTTC survey found
the Bahamas had the region's
most US-reliant tourism
industry, with 86.6 per cent of
visitors coming from that
nation. It added 25 per cent
of all US visitors to the
Bahamas currently did not
have a passport.
If the hotel industry is not
earning as much in profits and
revenues, then its employees
will also likely see a reduction in
wages and gratuities, causing a
drop in incomes, the circulation
of money and consumer
demand. These effects would
be felt throughout the entire
Bahamian economy.
Frank Comito, the BHA's
.executive vice-president, said


previously that the WHTI
amendments could be the dif-
ference between Bahamian
hotels made a profit or loss.
He said that even if just 5 per
cent of US stopover visitors did
not possess a passport by the
January 2007 deadline and
could not visit the Bahamas, this
still made "the potential dollar
impact very considerable".
"That's the difference
between an operation making
a net profit and possibly going
into a net loss," Mr Comito said.
"We make our gravy on the
additional occupancy we get,
and if occupancy is reduced by a
couple of percentage points,
then there's impact."
The Bahamas received just
over 1.5 million air traveller vis-
itors in 2005, and a 5 per cent

7. FAIR VALUE OF FINANCIAL ASSETS AND LIABILITIES

The fair value of the financial assets and liabilities of the Bank approximates their carrying
'" value as reponed irr the balance sheet.



8. RISK MANAGEMENT

The Bank engages in transactions that expose it to market risks in the normal course of
business. These market risks include credit, liquidity, interest rate and currency risks. The
Bank's financial performance is dependent on its ability to understand and effectively manage
these risks.

Credit risk Credit risk arises from the failure of a counter party to perform according to the
terms of the contract. From this perspective, the Bank's significant exposure to credit risk is
primarily concentrated in cash and current accounts with banks and loans. The deposits have
been placed with high quality international institutions. The loan portfolio is monitored to
minimize risk, and specific provisions are made when management feels that the credit risk is
no longer acceptable.

Liquidity risk This is the risk that the Bank has the necessary liquidity to meet its obligations
on borrowed funds, bonds and other securities on contractual maturity. The Bank manages its
liquidity by matching, as far as possible, liabilities with assets of similar maturity periods.

Interest rate risk The Bank is subject to interest rate risk. The Bank attempts to manage this
risk by retaining a level of liabilities with similar principal values, interest rates and maturity
dates.

Could softball team have


been better equipp


T HE Bahamas Softball
Federation took basi-
cally the same team to the Pan
Am Championships in Mexico
and returned with virtually the
same results as they did at the
Central American and,
Caribbean Games in Colom-
bia.
While the team failed to fin-
ish in the top five in Mexico as
they did with a fourth place
in Colombia, the team quali-
fied for the Pan American
Games next year after falling
short of the cut for the World
Championships in 2009.
However, there's an argu-
ment that the team could have
performed better in both trips,
if it was better equipped with
players who were prepared for
the long haul at the tourna-
ments.
Case in point.
The team reeled off its first
three consecutive victories in
both tournaments and went in
the opposite direction the rest
of the way. In Mexico, the
team just needed to pull off
its next two games and they
"would have been headed to
Canada in 2009.
Instead, the team was hit by
a serious of injuries that man-
ager Godfrey 'Gully' Burm-
side claimed hurt their

team could have been better

younger players who were in

the veterans.
But BSF first vice president
Burkett Dorsett, who traveled


as head of the delegation, said
the selection of the team was
based on who was available
to travel and not just sending a
team of players who couldn't

get there.
Every time a national team ';
returns home, they always talk '
about how much time the .
opposing teams spend togeth- *:
er prior to the tournament *

Yet we still have not tried to
set up an exhibition series for
the team to compete in or get 0

to the tournament. Bh
Dorsett said the Bahamas
Olympic Association assisted
them in getting the players
from Grand Bahama and the
Family Islands into New Prov-
idence so that they could train
together.
However, it didn't work as
well as they anticipated
because the players from New .
Providence had to work.
Maybe the BOA should
lend some more assistance in
helping the players to secure '
some time off from work a 'i

Unless we can find a way to .
compensate players at the
national level, we will contin-
ue to find ourselves in this sit-
uation. There are just too
many variables that have to
be worked out for the
Bahamas t'o get over .the
hump right now..


Despite what they went
through, D.orsett said he felt
the team performed as best as
they could under the circum-
stances.
Does this mean that if the
make-up was slightly differ-
ent, the team have performed
better than they did? Would
they have qualified for the
World Championships?
Those are two questions
that cannot be answered.
But it does indicate that the
selection process for the
national team may have to, be
revisited, or the federation will
have to make sure that the

MICHA.EL FOSTER
breathed a sigh of relief Nester-
day, after learning that half of
the W\indsor Field was complete.
Although Foster. the chair-
man of the Commonwealth

(CAFL). viewedd this as good
news. the commencement of the
league has to be pushed back in

Foster, who was on hand to
witness workers lay down the
grasN on the field, referred to
the work as an historic feat for
the sport in the country.
According to Foster, for the
enthused football players, exec-
utie members and coaches. hav-
ing the tield prepared means
that the sport is heading into the
right direction.
He said: "I am %ery pleased
that things are working out.
After playing football for so long
to just walk away and leale
nothing there, would mean that
I would be lit ing the rest of my
life with regrets and that's not
good
"I1 am glad that myself and a
few others like Lawrence Hep-

Dorsette and Skeebo Roberts
all have the same dream to
ensure that football doesn't go

gone. We had to restructure and

work to be done and I feel as
though we are heading into the

A jubilant Foster expressed
sincere thanks to Nlinister of
Youth. Sports and Housing
Netille Wisdom for assisting
with the project.
Just a year ago, players,
coaches and sponsors were will-
ing to turn their backs on the
CAFL, after the league hosted
only one game.
But Foster said he and his
team are hoping to correct the
problems.
He said: "First of all we have
to move away from having only
four to five teams up and run-
ning in the league. My thoughts
are that a secondary league
should really have some 16
teams participating. Objective-
ly this is our goal, to have 16
teams compete in the league.
"Secondly, from a football
perspective, to develop a youth
programme by which we can
start training kids so they are
given the best opportunities to
receive scholarships and other
tickets to college. Even though
our league has not started as yet,
we are presently working on
that."

Alfredo Munnings gave up four hits all in the
fourth inning and he struck out three for the
