A WHISTLEBLOWER Protection Act is "vitally" ne
ed in the Bahamas to protect public servants from victi
station when they speak out against government corrupt
the Grand Bahama Human Rights Association said yest
d
al an interview with The Tribune yesterday, president
the GBHRA Fred Smith said that such an Act, similar to t
one that was passed in United States, is needed especially
sm' h deral government has passed an Act that p
vides protection to civil servants when they expose gove
ment corruption or abuse internally.
"In a small country like the Bahamas just like we nee
Freedom of Information Act and a Reasons Act, we a
need a 'Whistleblower Act' so that politicians, Cabinet m
sisters and permanent secretaries, who are in positions
absolute power, do not abuse, intimidate or victumse
public servants," he said.
Such an Act, he said, will allow public servants w
observe or experience corruption, "or even witness ille
activities to come forward with the protection of the law

"short period of time."
H said that following this
ord6f, he and the lawyers for
the other families of the vic-
timsithen worked together "to
provide the information that is
necessary to determine the
exact damages that everybody
had suffered so that we could
portion the $50 million among
allitlke families."
Mr von Ribbick, who
worked together with a num-
her of American and Bahami-
an 14wyers, including FNM
SenAtor Carl Bethel, said that
the attorneys for Chalks
Ocean Airways were not very
cooperative in bringing this
case to a close.
"We had to call them and
requested from them repeat-
edly, and if it were not
because of the court's help,
this case could have taken
many years," he said.
From the beginning, he not-
ed, the airhne was more mter-
ested in determining the exact
circumstances that led to the
fatal crash in order to prevent
a similar accident from hap-
pemng agam in the future.
The judge in this case is
expected to order and
approve the $50 million set-
tlement for distribution within
' the next week.

A MONUMENTAL settle-
ment of $50 million has been
awarded to the families of the
victims of the Chalks Ocean
Airways crash.
A Florida judge has ruled
that the families of the 2005
Bimini crash which claimed
the lives of 40 people -
receive a larger than usual set-
t1ement sum than is the case in
most aviation disasters.
Three Biniinite families
alone will receive more than
$9 million.
Lead comisel for the fami-
lies of the victims, Manuel von
Ribbick, addressing the media
at a press conference held at
Atlantis yesterday morning,
said that he and his colleagues
decided to ask the court to
order Chalks to tender their
entire insurance coverage. :
"We requested that the total.
amount be tendered since the
damages exceeded the $50
million that they had in cov-
erage anyway, so we request-
ed that the judge order them
to tender the total amount
immediately and we were suc-
cessful," Mr von Ribbick said.
The American lawyer said
that the judge ruled that the
small airline is obligated to
tender the $50 million within a

a By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter
A BUSINESS owner has complained
that people in life-threatening situations
may have been left in the lurch yesterday -
as they have been on many occasions in
the past, he claimed as the 911 and 919
phone lines were "constantly busy" from
the earl oh rs dh meorni ron s.d
concern or response to complaints about
the situation.
Mr Antonio Wong of A. Wong gro-
ceries became aware of the service failure
at around 3.30am yesterday when he found
a trespasser on his property.
For 15 or 20 minutes both the 911 and
919 numbers were unanswered. Finally, in
desperation, Mr Wong called the opera-
tor. However, the operator informed him
that she was not permitted to dial emer-
gency numbers. Mr Wong was eventually
directed instead to the Wulff Road police

have access to their homes -
because party guests may in
fact be looking for items to
come back and steal.
She also said that Christ-
mas parties should be held
"outside" if at all possible.
The officers pointed out
that break-ins could take
place in both affluent and.
over-the-hill areas, and that it
is important for all members
of the public to "lock hands"
with the police to create a
better crime prevention.sys-
tem.
They said that if members
of the public want to get
involved m their community
crime watch programme or
start a programme in their
own community, they should
contact the Community Reli-
tions Centre at police head-
quarters.


THE police are alarmed by
a rise in the number of home
break-ins this year, accord-
ing to Inspector Walter
Evans.
While the increase is only
moderate, he cautioned
members of the public to be
extremely careful particu-
larly as the holiday season
approaches.
In a press conference held
yesterday at police head-
quarters, Indpector Evans
and Assistant Superintendent
Eileen Sands said that the
Royal Bahamas Police Force
wanted to warn members of
the public to be on the alert
this Christmas for crimmals
who use this time of the year
to break-in and vandalism
homes.
The two officers explained
that it is important for the
public and the police,
through the crime-watch pro-
gramme, to "partner togeth-
er".in the fight against home
invasions.
When asked by reporters
for specific things that mem-
bers of the public should be
doing, Superintendent Sands
said that everyone should be
on the look out for "undesir-
ables" who hang around in
communities, because they
may be plotting break-ins,

Inspector Evans told the
press that there are persons
in many local communities
who have grown accustomed
to lifestyles and habits that
they cannot sustain, and as a
result they tend to take part
in criminal activities.
He warned the public that
they should be on the look-
out for persons who were
engaged in selling "hot
items," such as DVDs and
jewellery.

%0 latest murders stdl

d * -*
POLICE say that they are still investigating the country's
two latest murders, but have no new information to report.
Last Friday, 26-year-old Densil Rahming, of Lyon Road,
was shot in the head while standing with a group of men on
Lyon Road, off Shirley Street.
4 A group was said to have been standing in a yard opposite
a liquor store when a man approached with a handgun.
Gunshots were fired and Rahming reportedly received
ounds to the upper body.
According to reports, he ran to the back of the yard and
then collapsed and died.
Three days later, 31-year-old Anthony Pinder was shot and
killed in the Ragged Island Street area at around 3am.
These two incidents were the country's 45th and 46th
murders.
Police Inspector Walter Evans said yesterday that he
could riot speak about the progress of the investigations, but
if there are any substantial developments, the public will be
informed.

as it relates to the National Health

that no Bahamian should be left to

cannot afford health insurance.
The Government is to be com-

demonstrating the desire to meet
this most daunting challenge.
The Coalition has no hidden

NAIROBI, Kenya The U.N. climate con-
ference ended Friday with agreement on next
steps toward negotiating future cuts in global-
warming gases, a slow-paced timetable reflectmg
h el Uv aSlta nCh nt loth can-
Delegates from the 165 member nations of the
Kyoto Protocol, which expires m 2012, approved
a schedule of talks unlikely to produce a deal on
post-Kyoto emissions reductions before 2009.
In the face of mounting evidence of climate
change, environnieritalists called the timetable a
modest step at best. Even some government
ministers expressed disappointment.
There's a need "to inlect greater urgency and
momentum into the process of driving down
global emissions," the environment ministers of
Germany and.Britam Ingmar Gabriel and
Da 1 liband saiadcin ab nt s tn rial
nations to reduce emissions of greenhouse gas-
es by 5 percent below 1990 levels by 2012. The
United States and Australia are the only major
industrial countries to reject that accord.
President Bush contends it would damage the
U.S. economy and should have imposed cut-,
backs on poorer countries as well.
Under the key agreement here, future meet-
ings will review the workings of the Kyoto Pro-
tocol by 2008 with an eye (oward setting new
quotas on carbon dioxide and other emissions
after Kyoto expires. .
The review a process that would assess the
latest science and the size of necessary cutbacks

other poor but fast-developing nations and
growing energy consumers might be pres-
sured to accept mandatory cutbacks m green-
house-gas emissions. The final decision assured
them the immediate process would not seek to
negotiate cutbacks by developing nations.
Third World countries will likely resist emis-
sions reductions until they see acceptance of

regdmjiel, the German minister, told reporters
that heads of state must instill "a new political
momentum" into climate diplomacy next year
when German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who


views climate as a priority, leads the G-8 group
of industrial nations.
But the chief U.N. conference organizer said
the deliberate pace of the next steps was neces-

the future the time it needs," said Yvo de Boer'

Activists hope Tanuary's Democratic takeover
of Congress may lead to more forceful U.S.
action on global warming, and that next Febru-
ary's Fourth Assessment Report by a U.N.net-
work of climatologists, the first in six years, will
help pressure all nations to curb emissions.

Some Kyoto-obligated countries will have to
struggle to meet their 2012 targets under that rel-
atively modest pact. But European leaders say
reductions will have to be much larger 5()

M SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico
INVESTORS who bet
against the odds of another
devastating Atlantic hurricane
season now stand to cash in
b -time on "catastrophe
bonds." Contrary to exper
predictions, the season turned
out to be the mildest in years'
according to Associated Press.
Insurance companies sell
the bonds, yieldmg merest
rates of about 15 percent, to
help them absorb huge pay-
outs in the event of another
storm like Hurricane Katrina.
The risk is high: If a storm
causes major damage during a

THE claim by a Defence
Force officer that he is being held
against his will at Coral Harbour
and is due to face a "kangaroo
court" have prompted Com-
modore Clifford Scavella to
respond that the officer's situa-
tion is "nothing unusual".
Lieut Zennerman Sherman
made unsettling allegations dur
ing a frantic phone call to The
Tribune on Tuesday.
"I am under arrest and they
are refusing to let me contact a
lawyer Lieut Sherman said.
"They are refusing to let me
leave the base and are about to
put me before a kangaroo court."
The lieutenant's other com-
plaints included the claim that
he has been denied pay for two


months, leaving him unable to
'buy anythmg to eat or drink.'
The office; alleged that he is
being victimized as part of a "pat-
tern oppression" being perpe-
trated by senior officers at the
base, and speculated that his
troubles stem from the fact that
he is "one of the few officers who
stands up for what is right."
Though reluctant to "provide
details" because the matter is
ongoing, Commodore Scavella
suggested that Lieut Sherman's


detention is a matter of proce-
dure for all officers who "commit
offences against the Defence
Force Act."
"Really and truly it is common
practice and procedure for per-
sons who have been absent with-
out leave to be presented before
the authorized officer or com-
manding officer to give an
account of the charges," said
Commodore Scavella.
Furthermore, "pay stoppage
is also to be expected if an officer
"hasn't shown up for a period of
time."

that there was no restriction on

TUC president: stress on the
inCTORSe in the workplace

M By ALEXANDRIO
IVIORLEY
STRESS is on the
increase in the Bahami-
an workplace, according
to Trade Umon Congress
president Obie Ferguson.
He said stress has )
become a major health
and safety issue across all
occupations and in both
the public and private
sector.
Mr Ferguson was ,
speaking at the annual
psychiatric symposium A TRADE Union Congress
held at Sandilands Reha- president Obie Ferguson
bilitation Centre on
Thursday.
He said surveys have found strong evidence that long hours,
heavy workloads, lack of control over work, lack of social sup-
port at work and.1ack of opportunities to develop skills all
impact orethe physical and mental health of workers.
In addition, said Mr Ferguson, ob insecurity, rising linem-
ployment and under-employment, Intense demands, inflexible
working arrangements, causal and temporary work and con-
tracting out all generate a climate where workers are feeling con-
stan lu le h at the "cost of stress" is on the increase, and

flikthis is riiinikthd iri absenteeism, higher medictinclostwand
employee turitovei.
Mr Ferguson said that traditionally enkpdpers hav6tended to
believe that worker stress is primarily t result ofrpersonal
problems.
However, he claimed that employers "do not bother to ques-
tion" whether the nature of the work has anything to do with it.
"Therefore workers are encouraged to cope with stress by
m 'Toto Ir sn aM n relying cause, but there
are reasons to believe that it could lead to long-term dependence
and additional health problems," he said.
Mr Ferguson said that stress needs to be controlled at the
workplace and that if they are to be successful, rehabilitation
strategies must not focus on the individual in isolation, but must
also look at the relationship between the worker and his or her
working conditions.
He suggested that the role of the union is to raise awareness
among their membership by advocating stress prevention mea-
sures. "Prevention is better than cure," he said.

Bahamas' judiciary have expressed concerns over possible
political victimization after they spoke out against the gov-
ernment,
Supreme Court Justice John Lyons, who in his contro-
versial ruling claimed that governMent has compromised the
independence of courts in the Bahamas, was the first mem-
ber of the judiciary to bring up the possibility of being per-
sonally victimized by the government.
In his ruling he also hit out at the government's 'Swift Jus-
lice" initiative. criticizing a document circulated about the
project as something that reads --much like a schoolmaster's
report or a human resources manager's report."
Deputy Director of Prosecutions in the Attorney Gener-
al's Office, Cheryl Grant-Bethell, who was blamed by Jus-
tice Lyons for writing and disseminating the document,1ast
week claimed that-she was being made a "scapegoat" for
government's mistakes.
Sh6 said that it was in fact Attorney General Allyson
Maynard-Gibson who released the document, which was
meant for internal consumption only.
Mrs Grant-Bethell said ma press release last week that she
hopes she will be not victimized for being so outspoken.
'"Ip my efforts to defend my reputation and my good
name I hope, trust, and pray that the powers that be do not
seek to administer and visit 'Swift Justice' upon me," she
said.
The GBFIRA yesterday commended Mrs Grant--Bethell
for speaking tp the public about the Swift Justice expose.
. "The Attorney General certainly should not have made
Mrs Grant-Bethella scapegoat.and the Association urges the
Attorney General not to make Mrs Grant-Bethell another
casualty of political victimisation," Mr Smith said.
The Association said it is calling for the chactment of a
Whistleblower Act to protect public servants, "who are
honest, who are conscientious and who are serious about
their occupersons in the public service, will not fear dis-
missal, victimisation, or loss in opportunities by exposing
internal governmental abuse.
'Such an Act is vitally important in a small nation such as
ours where persprialities appear to count a lot more than
principle," Mr Smith said.

5 RUGBY
By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
THE Bahamas Rugby Union's
eighth place finish out of a field of 15
teams at the Caribbean Seven-A-Side
Tournament showed what nee-ds to be
done to get the country ready for the
host of the tournament next year.
"I think our players were not expect-
ing the level of skills and fitness that
the other nations brought, particular-
ly Guyana and Jamaica, to be as high
as it was," said BRU's president
Andrew Davies, who'coached the
team in Bridgetown, Barbados last
week
"TI ese countries' facilities are no
better than our's, nor are their players
that much better. It just boiled down to
pure hunger in terms of who was just
fitter than the other and it appeared as
if they were better prepared than us."
Davies said that while the team
played well, he wants the players to
re-elvautate themselves before they
leave the country to play on the
national team.
"In terms of fitness, I would say only
four were of the standard to compete
at this level of competition," Davies
reflected. "The other eight were
nowhere near that level.
"We host these championships next
November, but our players have to be
better prepared, or we just won't be
able to compete against the teams
when they come here."
Davies, however, said he is pleased
to note that the Bahamas has a wealth
of talent, especially from thee junior
players who are now coming into the
sport.,
"There were no better athletes down
there than us,'' he charged. "What
there were, were more hungry blokes.
"So I don't mind losing because a
team has more experience than us.
What I do get upset with is the reason
why we're losing, which is easily recti-
fied."
Davies said either the players will
have get better prepared physically,
or they will be forced to pull some of
the players out of the vibrant jumor


"But the reality is ye nded more
players and that will come from our
junior programme." Davies project-
ed. "The ex-pats who really got the
sport going, are not here in those num-
bers, so it's]ust the Bahamians who are
gomg to carry the pport forward.
Here's how the team fared at the
tournament
Durag the first day of competition
which was pool play, the Bahamas
blowit away 45-0 by Jamaica, but (bey
recovered to knock off the Domini-
call Republic 46-5 and then they beat
. the Cayman Islands 12-7 before bemg
-shutout 24-0 to Mexico.
The Bahamas was awarded a spot in
the Plate division where the team lost
26-5, but defeated St. Vincent 26-0
before losing 22-21 to Martmique,


international tournament. They were
Jeremico Cooper, Devin Woodside
and DurattBeadle.
"I'm particularly pleased with Bea-
dle. He's 19 years of age, he's only
been playing rugby for two years, but
his attitude is first class," Davies point-
ed out. .
"He runs the sand, he hits (be gym;

"He was criticized in the past for not
stepping up, but he performed excyp-

Mike Sands, who will begin his
first full three-year term as presi-
dent of the BAAA this week, said
they have yet to reveal the names
of those athletes who will be
vying for the awards.
But he said in keeping with the

the last few years when they invit-
ed special dignitaries to attend
the banquet, Williams has agreed
to be this year's special guest.
The American training partner
of sprinter Debbie Ferguson-

Miami has also planned to bring
her father along with her, accord-

Dickinson State has been the
home for a number of Bahamian

rick Atkins, who broke the men's

Rafael Vaganian v Anatoly
Karpov, Leningrad 1970. At the
time of this game they were the
Soviet Union's best young
talents, and there seemed little
to choose between Armenla's
Vaganian, a grandmaster with
creative flair, and Russia's
Karpov, a hard-working
strategist and endgame expert.
But Karpov went on to become
the all-time number three after
Garry Kasparov and Bobby
Fischer, whereas Vaganian,
whom Soviet offidals rebuked
for a playboy approach, never
made it to the world top and
remains a middle-ranking GM.
Today's position symboilses
what might have been, a
position with level material
