Higgs taking legal

advice on Fox Hill

after election loss
SBy ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter
DR Jacinta Higgs, the FNM candidate for Fox Hill, is seeking
legal advice on how to proceed after it was officially announced
on Friday that she lost by 63 votes to Fox Hill incumbent, and
former foreign affairs minister, Fred Mitchell.
Whether this would lead to Mitchell's victory being contested
in the election court, Dr Higgs would not conjecture. However,
she declared she "will not stop" until she "gets Mr Mitchell out of
there" whether it is she who takes his place, or someone else, as
she feels he is a negative force in the historic community.
Yesterday, Dr Higgs described the run-up to, and during the
election, as one of "most insidious kind of political experiences"
she had known, alleging that she and her team were aware of a
variety of activities that needed to be investigated.
These include allegations that PLP workers were "flooding
the area with bribery" in the days prior to the election, and that
one was able to collect a large number of voters' cards from a Fox
Hill collection point, thereby forcing Fox Hill voters to come
directly to PLP operatives to pick up their cards.

Tribune Staff Reporter
TWO people were killed and one wounded when the Cuban
Coast Guard was involved in a shoot-out with four persons on a
Bahamas-registered speedboat on Monday, according to inter-
national reports.
Yesterday, Cuba's national newspaper reported that at 12.23 pm
on April 30, 2007, in the Boca de Jauco area of the Maisi munic-
ipality in Guantgnamo, a speedboat with a Bahamas registration
plate GB 0744, three outboard motors and four crew members,

Investigation begins

after Haitian shot by

Defence Force officer

By BRENT DEAN
A DEFENCE Force officer shot a Haitian man in the Cowpen
Road area yesterday, leading to an investigation of the incident by
both the police and defence forces.
When The Tribune arrived at the accident and emergency sec-
tion of Princess Margaret Hospital, a distraught relative of the
injured man had been waiting for hours to see him.
The relative expressed frustration at how Haitians are treated
by Bahamian authorities, saying the incident is indicative of the
heavy-handed tactics often used against people with little recourse.
The injured man, whose name has not yet been released, is
being treated at Princess Margaret Hospital, where he is also in
police custody, according to Chief Supt Hulan Hanna.
Mr Hanna said the man was shot after getting involved in a
struggle with defence force officers.
The officers, he said, were engaged in official duties when the
incident occurred. However, he did not specify what these duties
were, and the defence force has been quiet on the matter.
With both forces investigating, Mr Hanna told The Tribune that
the police investigation will be to determine if any criminal activ-
ity occurred, while the defence force will focus on determining

Bannister: people of Bahamas




knew it was time for a change


* By ALEXANDRIO MORLEY
Tribune Staff Reporter
THE Bahamian people have
been "thirsty" for leadership for
the last five years, FNM mem-
ber of parliament elect
Desmond Bannister told The
Tribune yesterday.
Mr Bannister said that vot-
ers were fed up with the inef-
fective leadership of Prime Min-
ister Perry Christie.
And he also said the FNM
had expected victory at the polls
on Wednesday.
The official results of the May
2 general election show that the
Free National Mdvement won
23 of the 41 seats in parliament.
In 2002, the Progressive Lib-
eral Party won by a landslide,
taking 29 seats in parliament. '
But this time around, Prime


Minister Christie gets the dis-
tinction of being the country's
first single-term prime minister
since the Bahamas won its inde-
pendence from Britain in 1973.

Carmichael

Desmond Bannister won the
Carmichael constituency, with a
victory over PLP incumbent
John Carey and BDM candi-
date Tolonus Sands.
At an FNM rally in the Gold-
en Gates Shopping Centre in
February, Mr Bannister said:
"Carmichael is FNM country,
and Carmichael can't wait to
send their do-nothing, unpro-
ductive MP home to early
retirement."
.iMr Bannister told his sup-
porters: "You just can't trust


Carey to keep his promises.
Carey promised that by 2003 he
would have introduced an after-
school programme in
Carmichael."
Yesterday, Mr Bannister said
the FNM was not surprised
that the Bahamian electorate
voted them in as the new gov-
ernment.
"It is absolutely clear that
the Bahamian people for the
last five years have been
thirsty for leadership and
Hubert Ingraham offered them
a leadership that they could
trust and that they know
exists," he said.
"The voters know that Mr
Ingraham is a kind of leader
who is not going to take any
nonsense and he will deal with
the affairs of this country in the
manner that they expect. "

* DESMOND Bannister

-Asl ed"hat the new FNM
government will focus on in the


next five years Mr Bannister
said that their manifesto has a
number of issues that are easily
measurable.
"And, at the end of five
years the FNM wants the
Bahamian people to be able to
judge them on what was actu-
ally accomplished compared to
what they had promised to
do," he said.
The FNM's manifesto stated
that their key objectives were,
among other things, to restore
trust in government, to deepen
and strengthen democracy, to
improve the delivery of the pub-
lic service and to ensure sus-
tainable economic develop-
ment.
"And if we don't do them,
the people will kick us out and
put someone else in," Mri- Bin-
nister said.


* By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport
Reporter
FREEPORT Despite his
decision to run as an indepen-
dent candidate, Grand Bahama
businessman Michael Edwards
said that he is still an FNM and
believes that the FNM is the
best political party for the coun-
try.
Mr Edwards was one of three
candidates who ran in Marco
City. FNM candidate Zhivargo
Laing was successful in captur-
ing the seat held by Freeport
attorney Pleasant Bridgewater.
Mr Laing won the seat by a very
small margin less than 50
votes.
Mr Edwards congratulated
Mr Laing on his victory in Mar-
co City, and his re-entry into
front-line politics.
"The people have spoken in
SMarco City, and I accept their
decision as to whom they have
chosen to represent them in the
halls of parliament for five
years," he said.
Mr Edwards said that his
defeat in Marco City has not
discouraged him. "I am disap-
pointed, but I want to thank the
people of Marco City for their
support. I will always remain at
the front-line of the issues and
be the voice of the less fortu-
nate and down trodden," he
said.
Even while launching his
independent campaign. Mr
Edwards had insisted that he
was still a member of the FNM.
When asked his position, now
that the election is over. he said:
"My position has not changed. I
am still a member of the FNM.
It's just that I decided to 1 nI as
an independent candidate -nd
there are just some things tha,


you have to do on principle.
"I still believe that the FNM
is best political party for the
country. But, we strayed from
our original philosophy in 1997,
and it cost us the election."
It is not yet known if FNM
supporters will be forgiving and
welcome Edwards back with
open arms, as the votes he
received in the election could
have extended the margin of
victory for Mr Laing.
On the other hand, Mr
Edwards' participation may
have also prevented Ms Bridge-
water from retaining her seat.
At the outset of his campaign,
Mr Edwards had stated that his
intention to run as an indepen-
dent candidate was never to
take away votes from either,
candidate.
"I am humbled by the oppor-
tunity to run an above board
campaign, and I want to thank
the people of Marco City who
supported me. One of the nicest
things was that so many resi-
dents were courteous, accom-
modating, and hospitable when
we visited their homes."
Mr Edwards congratulated
FNM leader Hubert Ingraham
on his victory in the election.
"The election came down to
Mr Ingraham and Mr Christie.
Mr Ingraham's leadership is dis-
tinctly different from Mr
Christie. He has exhibited the
style of leadership that was
good for the country 15 years
ago.
"I thought he did an excel-
lent job as prime minister, but
not as leader of the party. But,
Mr Ingraham has said that he is
changed man, and that he is wis-
er now," he said.
Mr Edwards said now that
the election is over, Bahamians
can unite as a people.


OIn brief

PLP to keep
looking at
election
results

THE PLP will continue to
review their legal position on
the outcome of the general
elections, according to out-
going prime minister Perry
Christie.
Mr Christie was addressing
a crowd of PLP supporters
who came out to the Sir Lyn-
den Pindling Centre on Far-
rington Road on Thursday
night, in the hopes that there
was some truth to the
rumours that their party had
in fact won."
"Our lawyers will contin-
ue to review our legal posi-
tion because there are con-
cerns that we have, and I
shan't comment on those con-
cerns at this stage because the
concerns are based on infor-
mation provided me, which
must be established to my sat-
isfaction before I'm able to
speak publicly. I can tell you
I'm very sad," Mr Christie
said.
He told the crowd that, "all
day our lawyers and candi-
dates have been locked into
rooms with election officials
going through re-counts. It
appears that we will not be
successful in this election. It is
very, very close."
Mr Christie explained that
the Free National Movement
won some seats by 50 votes or
fewer.
"The question of gover-
nance and being able to gov-
ern effectively will obviously
arise," Mr Christie continued.
"In the meantime, you have
heard me say on so many
occasions that I love you too
much for me to cause you to
be in any position where
there could be a public con-
frontation."
He told supporters to avoid
any hostility when the offi-
cial results are announced.
"It's very interesting for
seats to be won by 50 votes or
less," he added. "And so lis-
ten now; I want you to know
that it is important for all of
us to be strong. There are
many of our members and
supporters who are very sick
and very worried over this
matter, but you have a leader
who has come too far to turn
back now."
Mr. Christie asked PLP
supporters to return to their
homes as he planned to call
them together shortly to dis-
cuss with them "the way for-
ward".
"This will give me an
opportunity to walk on the
streets, every street and every
corer throughout this island
and throughout the Com-
monwealth and remember,
we will not let up; we will not
let go and we will not turn
back," Mr Christie said. "For-
ward ever, backward never.
"The rumours have been
grounded on the fact that
these elections have been
won on the basis that if 20
people,or 25 people had vot-
ed for the PLP instead of the
FNM, the PLP would have
won the seat," Mr Christie
said, "as close as that."
"Leave here knowing that
you've seen me," Mr Christie
said, "knowing that I'm
strong and knowing that I'm
committed to 'forward ever,
backward never' and that I'm
committed to your cause and
to representing your cause
and to let you know that you
have put enough members in
the House of Assembly to be
able to look them straight in
the eye and to let them know
that this country could only
be governed if we are a part
of that [governance]."
He said PLPs are strong
and powerful in the Bahamas
and they have proven that.
"So now, knowing that
you're strong, knowing that
your leader is with you, let us
all agree to hug each other,
kiss each other and say good-
night to Gambier House for


the time being and then until
I see you again, which will be
very soon, when I call, I want
to see you be there," Mr
Christie said. "PLP! PLP!
PLP! All the way!"

OIn brief

Two face
charge of
marijuana

possession

A 30-YEAR-OLD man
and a 17-year-old girl were
arraigned in magistrate's
court yesterday on a drug
charge.
It was alleged that Ker-
rington Knowles and the 17 -
year-old were found in pos-
session of a quantity of mari-
juana, which authorities
believed they intended to
supply to another.
The accused, who were
arraigned before magistrate
Carolita Bethel at Court eight
Bank Lane, pleaded not
guilty to the charges and were
granted bail in the sum of
$10,000.
According to the prosecu-
tion, the accused were found
in possession of one pound
of marijuana.
The matter was adjourned
to October 24.

Cuba says
army officer
killed in
hijack attempt
* HAVANA
FUGITIVE soldiers killed
an army officer they took
hostage early Thursday in a
failed attempt to hijack a plane
bound for the United States,
.the Interior Ministry said,
according to Associated Press.
The two escaped recruits
were arrested after Army Lt.
Col. Victor Ibo Acuna
Velazquez was killed aboard
the plane on an airport tar-
mac in the aborted hijacking,
a ministry statement said.
The incident began before
dawn, when the fugitives
commandeered a regular city
bus and forced it to be dri-
ven into the airport and onto
the tarmac of Terminal 2,
which services charter flights
between the Cuban capital
and the United States.
While the lieutenant
colonel was killed aboard the
plane, there were no crew
members or passengers
aboard the aircraft, the state-
ment said. The plane's sched-
uled destination was
unknown, but most of the
charter flights out of Terminal
2 fly to Miami.
"Despite being unarmed,
(Acuna) heroically tried to
prevent the commission of
the terrorist act," the state-
ment said. Passengers on the
commandeered bus were
unharmed, it added.
The ministry blamed US
policies that Havana says
encourage Cubans to emi-
grate to the United States and
Washington's tolerance for
violence against the commu-
nist-run country.

School staff horrified after




sixth break-in this year


* By NATARIO McKENZIE
TEACHERS and staff at
Ridgeland Primary School were
upset and dismayed yesterday
upon discovering that brazen
vandals had broken into the
school and rummaged several
offices late Thursday night.
Although the culprits were
reportedly unable to escape
with anything, school officials
say they feel as though the
school is being targeted, as the
break-in was the sixth this year.
On Friday morning teachers
and students returned to the
school only to find that several
administrative offices had been
ransacked and five computer
monitors, one flat screen moni-
tor, two computer towers, four
keyboards, two printers and two
televisions had been left in the
schoolyard. All the items were
reportedly brand new.
According to school officials,
security personnel at the school
were fortunately able to thwart
the theft.
When The Tribune arrived
at the school shortly after 10am
Friday, the items had not been
moved, though police had
already dusted the items for fin-
gerprints. The Tribune was
directed to three offices in the
school's administrative block
which had been ransacked with
papers, books, and other items
left in disorder on the floor.
It was apparent that one door
had been prised opened while
another appeared to have been
opened after a sheet rock wall
was kicked in. Visibly dismayed
Ruth Smith, shop steward for
Ridgeland Primary School,


spoke to The Tribune yester-
day.
"It is very disturbing for
Ridgeland primary's teachers,
students and staff to come here
this morning to find all of our
computers in the yard and
school disrupted," she said.
According to Ms Smith, even
more disturbing was the fact
that two young boys were
apparently involved in the
break-in, which was reportedly
discovered around 11.45 pm
Thursday by a security officer
working the night shift, as well
as a janitress.

Security

As the security was report-
edly entering the yard two
young boys who were watching
the items fled. Upon seeing this,
the security guard checked the
school's offices only to find
them in shambles.
"In January, the lock to the
entry of the tuck shop was
picked and they carried all the
juices and the corn dogs. On
another day in January they
entered through the window of
the tuck shop by removing the
hinges. They carried all the
juices and the corn dogs. On
February 18 entry was made
through the middle door of the
administrative block. All rooms
were broken into, including the
principal's office and the prin-
cipal's personal laptop comput-
er and other small devices such
as her radio, DVDs and VHS
were taken.
"On February 25 they
entered through the bathroom


window in the principal's office
and they took the remaining
devices that were there. On
March 2 an entry was made by
cutting a hole in the middle of
the door of the administrative
block rooms where they tam-
pered with everything but noth-
ing was removed except for a
jar of pennies," she said.
All of these incidents have
been reported to police and the
Ministry of Education, Ms
Smith said.
"I don't know what to say.
I'm just puzzled because I just
moved here two years ago and,
talking to the teachers, this has
never happened before," Ms
Smith said.
"The teachers are just putting
the classrooms back together.
They were all torn apart when
we came back in August. We
have not even quite settled
down as yet," she said.
Chief Supt Hulan Hanna said
police intend to continue to
liaise with schools and local
businesses to help alleviate van-
dalism.
"It is a concern for us that
there are adults who are using
young persons because of their
size and perhaps naivet6 to
assist them in committing crim-
inal acts. We intend to work
with the schools and public
places where persons are
repeatedly taking advantage of
a situation," he said.
"This is a school we will have
to work with to ensure that we
apprehend these persons and
that government property is not
criminally removed from school
premises," Mr Hanna said.


Ingraham 'must heal



wounds of country'


Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham now has to get to work on
healing a "deeply wounded"
society, it was claimed last night.
He will have to restore basic
trust in the government and its
institutions, said academic Felix
Bethel.
His comments came in
response to the FNM's close
victory over the PLP, which fol-
lowed a tense day of recounts
on Thursday.
Mr Bethel said Mr Ingraham
had been given "a fairly slim
mandate" but his mission must
be to heal a deeply wounded
society.
"It needs a set of men who
are literally healers," he said,
"I hope this is what Ingraham is
all about."
He said social progress does-
n't just happen, it has to be engi-
neered. He cited crime, educa-
tion and immigration as key
areas of concern.
"The PLP's dependence on
anchor projects missed the
boat," said Mr Bethel. "If Ingra-
ham is as wise as I believe him
to be, he will move towards
cooling the temperature on
anchor projects and focus on
the institutions."
He said Justice John Lyons'
attack on the independence of
the judiciary had been the "tor-
pedo" that brought the PLP
down because it went "right to
the heart of governance."
He said Mr Christie should
now resign as PLP leader to allow
the party to consider its future,
"which can't be with Christie or
anyone chosen by him."
"Mr Christie is exhausted. He
has fulfilled his lifelong ambi-


a HUBERT Ingraham


tion," he added.
"We don't need to be told
anymore about the $20 billion
investments they mean noth-
ing to those who are hurting.
The PLP must get in touch with
the heartbeat of the Bahamian
people."
Mr Ingraham, he said, should
move post haste to deal with
Haitian immigration.
"Lynden Pindling left the
most terrible piece of legisla-
tion on the books which deter-
mined that you can be born
here but not be a citizen," he
said.
"It has created a monstrosity
that begs to be regularised. If
you have been in the Bahamas
for ten years or more, you
should be given permanent res-
idency and if you have children
in the Bahamas, they should be
citizens at birth."
Earlier, fathers' rights cam-
paigner Clever Duncombe, who


stood as an independent in
Golden Gates, said he was hap-
py to have focused on the issues
to help bring down the PLP.
"I feel like Samson when he
slew the Phfilistines. Even
though I went down, I took
many with me," he said.
He said the electorate had
given the "inept" PLP govern-
ment exactly what it deserved.
The PLP had secured "a bad
place in history" as the govern-
ment serving the shortest term.
Meanwhile, Mr Bethel
praised The Tribune for doing
"a superb job" in the run-up to
the election.
He said the newspaper had
been true to its motto "Being
bound to swear to the dogmas
of no master" and been fear-
less in its approach.
"The Tribune is an institution
in the Bahamas with high cred-
ibility. That is why its message
resonates," he added.

Mugabe warns Catholic bishops


HARARE, Zimbabwe President Robert
Mugabe told Roman Catholic bishops who
issued a letter blaming him for the country's
political and economic turmoil they had cho-
sen "a dangerous path," and church officials
said Friday a priest had been briefly detained
for passing the pastoral message on to his con-
gregation.
The arrested priest and a member of his
congregation were released without charge
after spending 24 hours in jail last month, said
Father Oskar Wermter of the Catholic social
communications secretariat in Harare.
Later on Friday, police arrested two promi-
nent lawyers who have specialized in human
rights issues.
The pastoral letter signed by all of the coun-
try's nine bishops called on Mugabe to end
oppression in the country and allow for demo-
cratic reform. It also warned that violent con-
frontation and deepening economic hardships
were pushing the nation close to a flash point.
"The bishops have decided to turn political.
And once they turn political, we regard them
as no longer being spiritual," Mugabe said of
the letter.
"Our relations with them would be con-
ducted as political entities, and this is quite a
Dangerous path they have chosen for them-
selves," Mugabe was quoted as saying.
He called the pastoral letter "political non-
sense."
Church officials said since the pastoral letter
was distributed across the country to coincide
with Easter services, state agents visited


Catholic churches and questioned worship-
pers over their understanding of the bishops'
message.
The priest arrested had evidently given
prominence to the letter in services in north-
ern Harare.
Wermter said Mugabe's response was to be
expected."What is surprising is that he kept
silent for so long. People have reacted to the
letter very positively and maybe that is riling
him," Wermter said.
Western governments have imposed sanc-
tions on Zimbabwe to protest Mugabe's
human rights record. Investment and foreign
loans have dried up in six years of political and
economic turmoil following the often-violent
seizures of thousands of white-owned farms
that began in 2000. Inflation, running at more
than 2,000 per cent annually, is the highest in
the world.
Opposition activists and civic leaders along
with independent journalists accused of giving
credence to calls for "regime change" in Zim-
babwe have frequently been arrested and
assaulted in efforts to silence them.
Attorney Sternford Moyo said police arrest-
ed lawyers Alec Muchadehama and Andrew
Makoni at their Harare offices late Friday
and held them at the main Harare police jail,
allegedly for attempting to pervert the course
of justice.
The two lawyers are currently representing
a group of jailed opposition activists wilo have
denied involvement in a series of petrol bomb-
ings since early March.


Former Iranian leader meets Pope


VATICAN CITY Former Iranian Pres-
ident Mohammad Khatami met Friday with
Pope Benedict XVI for talks the Vatican
hoped would help heal tensions left from the
pontiff's remarks on Islam and violence, but
the Iranian said the wounds were still very
deep.
Khatami, a reformist in power from 1997
to 2005, had been scheduled to meet with
Benedict in October but the meeting was can-
celled. No reason was given, but it was just
weeks after Benedict's speech in Germany
about Islam touched off protests across the
Muslim world.
On Friday, the two men spoke about the
importance of "a serene dialogue between
cultures intended to overcome the grave ten-
sions that mark our times," the Vatican said in
a statement after their 30-minute meeting.
But visiting a Catholic university in Rome
before the talks, Khatami said that "unfortu-
nately the wounds of this world are very deep
and they cannot be healed easily and a single

meeting may not be enough," the ANSA news
agency quoted him as responding to a question
about Benedict's speech.
Relations between Muslims and Christians
were badly strained after Benedict quoted a
Byzantine emperor who characterized some of
the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad as
"evil and inhuman," particularly "his cbm-
mand to spread by the sword the faith."
Benedict expressed regret that Muslims
were offended. As a sign of improved rela-
tions, he made a successful visit to predomi-
nantly Muslim Turkey in November.
It was Khatami's second meeting with a
pope, following an audience with Pope John
Paul II in 1999, two years after the Iranian
had taken office.
Earlier in Rome, addressing an academic
gathering at the Pontifical Gregorian Univer-
sity, Khatami said dialogue between Islam and
Christianity must concentrate on a "sincere
and practical commitment" to "eliminate ter-
rorism and the great military conflicts."


A complaint





over quality





control at ZNS


EDITOR, The Tribune
PAKESIA Edgecombe and
Ricardo Lightbourne, have they
ever heard of subtle? These two
people's habitual conclusion of
the news from Grand Bahama,
filled with flirtation and
squawking, not only boarders
on but is outright vulgar and
should be disallowed disal-
lowed that I'd not need to
switch my TV off when they are
most ridiculous or avoid them
altogether. What they attempt
to mix with the news I find dis-
tracting and distasteful.
Their antics suggest that the
job at hand were ever so simple
and so well accomplished. It's
not. In my opinion they are
both less than professional -
what's required of them, less
than perfected.
Of Pakesia Edgecombe I
must say, a pretty face does not
give her the right to make a
mockery of presenting the news.
The news, she and fellow-clown,
Ricardo Lightbourne, seem to
suggest is some joking matter.
They were not hired as come-
dians.
Pakesia Edgecombe needs to
work on and to improve her
enunciation. She habitually fails
to pronounce the ends of many
words. This is distracting and


substandard. She has work to
do yet to get up to par to
impress as a reporter.
What I find to be Ricardo's
problem, though the words roll
from his tongue readily and
rapidly, his accent is unaccept-
ably American. This though is
true of many of our radio per-
sonalities and though it is irk-
some, it is not entirely unfor-
givable. What is unforgivable
though is this reporter's prox-
imity to his listener.
His gestures, intonation, tone
put him in the space of the
viewer. He needs to back away
with all his antics. This viewer -
viewers generally have not
agreed to any contract of friend-
ship. Why therefore is he behav-
ing as if his viewers and he were
such close friends?
His presumption is unaccept-
able unprofessional. This
viewer wishes him to withdraw
a few feet. In other words desist
from being uninvited all up
in my face all up in my senses.
I tune in for the news, not for
his clowning, antics or intimacy.
He breaks the skin between the


audience and himself. This is
vulgar and a violation. It's impo-
lite.
In conclusion, whatever exists
between these two, they need
to keep it to themselves out of
the news. It is not what we tune
in for. I live on New Providence.
I used to live on Grand
Bahama. I wish to keep con-
nected to what's going on there.
This pair though, over and over,
inspire this viewer to switch the
TV off in annoyance, insulted
by their vulgar flirtation with
the viewer and each other. This,
instead of on camera, needs to
be kept off stage.
I am as sensitive as I am
about this pair because I have a
degree in Speech, in Theatre. I
find them an insult to my train-
ing. On top of my passion for
and training in the performing
Arts, I am a writer. The news is
one of the places to which I turn
to do research. The news is his-
tory happening. When I turn to
ZNS on a week day, between
6.30pm and 8pm, I do not
expect to encounter comedians.
Were I in search of foolishness,
I'd most certainly turn, I'd most
certainly go elsewhere.

OIn brief Rise in Haitians heading to US

Crash victim


believes
FNM win will

aid justice

ROAD crash victim
Daniel Williamis believes the
change in government will
help him get long-awaited
justice in his battle with the
man who wrecked his life.
Mr Williams. who xwas left
physically ruined by crash
injuries in the early 1990s, has
already been granted judg-
ment'against the driver held
responsible, Mario Bo we.
The Supreme Court
ordered that Mr Bowe pay
$317.834 to Mr Williams with
interest accruing at ten per
cent a year.
But Mr Williams claims he
has never received any mon-
ey from the defendant.
He claimed that Mr Bowe
had enjoyed political protec-
tion during the PLP era
because his father was a close
friend of the late Sir Lynden
Pindling.
"Now that the government
has changed, I want to see if I
can get justice at last," said
Mr Williams, who was left
with severe disability, includ-
ing limp legs and constricted
hands, following the collision
in Collins Avenue.
On March 14. after The
Tribune's INSIGHT section
had highlighted Mr Williams'
plight, a penal notice was
served on Mr Bowe ordering
him to undergo an oral exam-
ination to see what property
he had to satisfy the original
judgment.
On March 21, a certificate
of assessment was issued, cer-
tifying the damages and inter-
est owed.
Mr Williams told The Tri-
bune that he had yet to
receive any money from the
defendant, who was alleged
to have run a red light in his
truck before hitting a car car-
rying five young people.
A girl died in the crash. Mr
Williams was left paralysed
below the neck and has not
been able to work since then.
The Tribune has not been
able to contact Mr Bowe.

Tribune Staff Reporter

THERE was a huge surge in
April in the number of migrants
leaving Haiti for the Bahamas
and US, possibly due to
rumours about a new US policy
towards Haitians, according to
US officials.
This comes as the Associated
Press reported yesterday that a
sailboat carrying 150 people had
capsized in shark-infested
waters off the Turks and Caicos
islands while being towed by a
police vessel.
Twenty people have been
reported dead so far in the inci-
dent some having limbs
"chewed off" by sharks while
another 58 are missing, accord-
ing to AP.
The US embassy in the
Bahamas issued a statement


FROM page one
According to the report, at
2.49pm the speedboat was suc-
cessfully intercepted, with the
result that of the four crew
members presumed Bahami-
an two were killed and one
wounded in the leg.
The Cuban newspaper said
the injured man has received
the necessary medical attention.

FROM page one
The Fox Hill race was one
which sparked significant public
curiosity. Mr Mitchell was wide-
ly considered to be a tough
opponent for any candidate in
the area. However, Dr Higgs is
a well-known figure in the com-
munity, and revered by many
for being a "Fox Hill gal."
Confusion and curiosity
reigned on election evening
when, after being referred to
repeatedly by announcers as
the victor in the constituency,
word spread belatedly that 41-
year-old Dr Higgs had ulti-
mately come out behind
Mitchell.
Explaining the situation yes-
terday, Dr Higgs said that she
was leading in the polls until
the return of the final polling
division, number six.
Asked why that particularly
division took so long to be
returned, Dr Higgs said she had

Addressing the nation yes-
terday after 6.30pm, Mr Ingra-
ham in a notably short and
succinct speech said:
"My colleagues and I intend
to deepen and strengthen
democracy and put in place fur-
ther measures for its protec-
tion."
He also took the opportunity
to thank his family, the FNM
candidates that ran in the elec-
tion; former Prime Minister
Perry Christie, as well as the
former Cabinet members; all
members of the former parlia-
ment, and the police and
Defence Force.
"Thank you for allowing me
to form the next government of


yesterday which stated that 837
Haitian migrants have been
intercepted on their way from
Haiti towards the Bahamas, and
potentially the US, in only the
last 34 days.
Many of the interceptions
have occurred in the Southern
Bahamas and the Windward
Passage, according to the
embassy.
This is a massive increase in
only a month, with March see-
ing only 125 migrants inter-
cepted, according to AP.
It is also significantly more
than the previous high for the
fiscal year which began in
October of 511, according to
Florida's Sun Sentinel newspa-
per.
The embassy stated that the
increase is "due to rumours of a
wet foot/dry foot policy being
applied to Haitians."

On board the violating ves-
sel, 30 packets and 13 plastic
tanks containing 590.33 kilo-
grams of marijuana were found.
A statement from the Cuban
government said: "The use of
force by our border guard units
was carried out in an excep-
tional manner in order to allow
those concerned to carry out
their duty and exercise legiti-
mate defense against aggressors


The USA's "wet foot/dry foot
policy" is one which applies to
Cubans, meaning that if they
set foot on US soil, they can
remain, whereas if they are
intercepted at sea, they must
return to Cuba.

Migrants

"The US policy has not
changed and the US government
is repatriating Haitian migrants,
including those who reach the
shores of the United States," said
the embassy yesterday.
The surge in migrationary
activity has caused the US to
increase Coast Guard surface
vessel and aircraft presence in
the region.
The repatriation effort by the
US Coast Guard has saved the
Bahamian government an esti-

cer in that division had taken
"extra due care" in counting the
ballots.

Response

While she said she did not
suspect foul play, she said ques-
tions remained in her mind
"because, beyond a shadow of a
doubt, I knew that the response
of the people was FNM and
they were in support of me,
especially in polling division
five, six and seven."
The FNM candidate revealed
that she and her party now have
an "investigative team" on the
streets.
"We are in the next few days
going to be in purAjiit of all of

He especially thanked Par-
liamentary Commissioner Errol
Bethel and his staff, who Mr
Ingraham said, worked very
hard under tremendous pres-
sure.
Mr Ingraham said that the
election process was not a flaw-
less one, but said he would
address this matter at a later
"more suitable venue."
Archdeacon of the Southern
Bahamas Keith Cartwright
delivered the invocation, thank-
ing God for a violence-free gen-
eral election.

activities that we suspect and
that have been alleged by per-
sons," she explained.
However, Dr Higgs said that
she now has "heart-wrenching
decisions" to make about exact-
ly how to proceed.
"As I said, these are my peo-
ple in this constituency...many
of them would've come to us in
secret. Now, how far will the
hard evidence lead, how many
persons will I have to include
to bring to bear evidence about
what has been done all of
these things I have to deliber-
ate," she said.
She claims that Mr Mitchell's
famous statement that if he
were to lose Fox Hill, the PLP
would lose the election, was
made "intentionally and-manip-
ulatively" to get the PLP to
focus their resources in his con-


cries of "yes, yes" as he asked
God to keep all new members
of parliament "honest, trust-
worthy and straightforward in

Bahamaland."
Governor-general Arthur
Hanna addressed the jubilant
crowd with a well-received ad-
lib speech, in which he
expressed his "sincere hope that
(the FNM) govern the Bahamas
in the way it should be gov-
erned."
He extended his congratula-
tions "not only to the FNM, but
to members of the PLP who
were successful in that elec-
tion."
Mr Hanna said that all those
within parliament must remem-
ber that "the most important part

whether proper procedure was
followed by its officers during
the incident.
The only public statement the
defence force has made about
the matter is through a one para-
graph press release acknowledg-
ing that the incident did occur
involving a female officer, who
fired the shot, and that the man
was wounded in the thigh.
An eyewitness told The Tri-
bune that there was a struggle
between the man and defence
force personnel, but he could not
say who initiated it, or why it
began.
The lawyer for the injured
man, and president of the
Bahamas Human Rights Net-
work. Elsworth Johnson, did not
want to pre-empt the official
investigation. But he expressed
grave concern regarding the
treatment of Haitian nationals
and Haitian-Bahamians by local
security forces.
"Everybody in The Bahamas,
whether they be Haitian,
Jamaican or Chinese. is entitled
to certain basic fundamental
human rights," he said.
"From observing the process
from this morning, you know.
\se need to treat Haitians bet-
ter. They are not sub-human and
they are not inanimate objects.
They are human beings." he said.
Mr Johnson added that, in
matters involving Haitians. offi-
cials should respect their legal
rights and ensure that attorneys
are made available to these peo-
ple if desired.

Last Tuesda\, a [IS Coast
Guard ship intercepted a 50-
foot sailboat in the Wincld\\ad
Passage, with 139 Haitian
nationals onboard.
"Although the vessel was ini-
tially spotted by a US Coast

Island the previous day, the re-
directed Coast Guard ship was
able to make the intercept
approximately one and a half
miles off the western end of
Long Island, preventing the
sloop from reaching shore," said
officials.
"Due to the dilapidated con-

"being called everything but a

she was not shocked by his

"I recognized that he was

Dr Higgs said her life so far
lives up to public scrutiny, and
with the people of Fox Hill

it was partly due to Mr Mitchel-

his previously huge margin in

A Defence Force vessel,
HMBS Bahamas, arrived on
scene shortly after the inter-
ception and took custody of the
empty sailing sloop while the
US Coast Guard ship departed
the area to repatriate the
migrants directly back to Haiti.
Again on Wednesday, a US
Coast Guard vessel intercept-
ed another Haitian boat with
56 Haitian'nationals onboard
west of Great Inagua.
US embassy officials credit-
ed the partnership between US
Coast Guard, the Royal
Bahamas Defence Force and
Bahamas Immigration with
playing a "significant role in the
effective at sea response capa-
bilities to this dynamic threat
to national security for both the
United States and the

The report said the Cuban

incident, expressing its total dis-
position to provide all the infor-

New programme




helps businesses




of young people
*~ ~ ^^- ,J :^*^^^I^^^^^k '-Bnt^..


A NEW programme has
been launched to help young
Bahamians get started in their
own businesses with available
credit of up to $50,000.
Neville Adderley, chairman
of the Bahamas Development
Bank, said the government is
intent on erasing the failure rate
among young persons who start
their own business.
"Eighty per cent of small
businesses have failed or dis-
continued in the first four years
of operation," Mr Adderley told
the press during the launch of
the Youth Entrepreneurial Pro-
gramme (YEP) at the bank's
Cable Beach office.
YEP is intended to put in
place programmes and strate-


gies aimed at 18-to-30-year-olds
to help them overcome business
failure.
The programme is intended
to help young entrepreneurs
avoid common pitfalls in start-
ing and maintaining business-
es.
YEP is a "comprehensive
programme" designed to pro-
vide assistance to young entre-
preneurs at every stage of the
project cycle, from the initial
planning to operations.
Participants in the pro-
gramme receive formal business
training, assistance with devel-
oping their business plans, fund-
ing for their businesses, men-
torship during implementation
and initial operations, and net-


working opportunities to sup-
port growth.
Bahamian citizens between
18 to 30 who are recommended
for the programme by an edu-
cational institution or commu-
nity based service organisation
are eligible for YEP.
An applicant accepted into
the programme will first under-
go a series of business training
seminars based on their back-
ground and training.
At successful completion of
the training a business develop-
ment officer (BDO) is assigned
'to the participant and works
with him or her to develop busi-
ness plans.
On completion, the plan is
submitted to the Bank's Credit

Department for review and
funding. Funding approved, the
participant will implement the
business plan under the guid-
ance of the assigned BDO.
A mentor will then be
assigned to offer advice and
guidance to the participant for a


limited time.
YEP runs for 12-24 months
depending on the progress of
the participant.
The bank's goal is to ensure
the success of the programme's
participants.
However, resources are lim-


ited and only a limited number
of persons will be selected each
year.
Mr Adderley said that
although the ceiling is presently
$50,000, that figure could be
increased if the circumstances
warranted an increase.

Tribune Freeport
Reporter
FREEPORT Old Bahama
Bay at Ginn Sur Mer has
announced the completion of
24 new junior suites at West
End.
The new rooms bring the
total number of guest rooms at
the property to 73, which
include 67 junior suites and six
two-bedroom suites.
According to resort officials,
50 per cent of the rooms are
oceanfront suites, while others
have views of the ocean.


Old Bahama Bay also com-
prises a 70-plus slip marina,
oceanfront pool, restaurants,
and a massage pavilion.
It offers amenities, such as
fishing, diving, snorkeling and
boating activities.
In early January, Ginn
Resorts assumed operations of
the Old Bahama Bay Resort
and Yacht Harbour.
Ginn Resorts is developing
the $4.9 billion Ginn Sur Mer, a
2,000-acre resort community
adjacent to Old Bahama Bay
that will contain more than
4,400 condominium and hotel
units, nearly 2,000 single family


residential home sites, signature
golf courses designed by Jack
Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer,
clubhouses, two large marinas, a
private airport, a casino, water
and swim pavilions, a beach
club and a spa.
The development at West
End will serve as Ginn Resort's
flagship Caribbean develop-
ment.
The new room additions at
Old Bahama Bay, say resort
officials, "combine the resort's
casual elegance with colonial
influences and feature king beds
with duvet covers".
The rooms also incorporate


white flowing fabrics, flat
screen LCD televisions with
DVDs and plantation shut-
ters. Kitchens are outfitted
with stainless steel appliances
and granite kitchen counter
tops.
"Like the existing suites, the
new rooms are decorated in the
resort's signature style of dark
woods, rich fabrics and custom-
designed island plantation-style
furnishings. Warm, textured
leathers garnish the interiors
while tropical pastels and
exquisite landscaping enliven
the exteriors," said a spokesman
at the resort.

He said the Mama Loo's
team will incorporate some
spicy, sweet and sour flavours.
Most importantly however, they
will use fresh ingredients.
"We are making all of our pot
stickers, spring rolls and sauces
fresh everyday and our meats
are cut fresh daily. We are going


to add a cleaner and crisper
look to the food," he said.
Mark Percival, Atlantis' vice
president of culinary operations,
said that Chef 'DJ' "brings to
our resort a new style of Chi-
nese cuisine mixing traditional
Chinese foods with a wide vari-
ety of Asian ingredients.
"His extensive knowledge

"Cheek's unique style ~.,iil

As part of the modernisa-
tion process, 15 new dishes
will replace 17 dishes on the
menu.
Some of the restaurant's new
specialties will include succu-
lent seafood lettuce wraps
made with shrimp, scallops and
lobster stir fried with water
chestnuts, topped with mush-
rooms enveloped in a crisp let-
tuce cup; spicy coconut curried

1. Corporation information

Bank of America Trust and Banking Corporation (Bahamas) Limited (the "Bank") is incorporated under the laws of
the Commonwealth of The Bahamas. The Bank is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Bank of America International
Finance Corporation ("BIFC") a company registered in North Carolina U.S.A, which is ultimately wholly-owned by
Bank of America Corporation.

On December 12, 2005, ownership in the Bank was transferred to BIFC from Bank of America Holding Company
S.A. (liquidated as part of a reorganisation process). Bank of America Corporation is a bank holding company
incorporated in Delaware (United States of America) whose executive offices are located in Charlotte, North
Carolina.

The Bank has two wholly owned subsidiaries incorporated under the laws of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas,
Trunoms Limited and-Wolnoms Limited which serve as nominee companies of the Bank and are presently inactive.

The Bank's registered office is located at Bank of Butterfield (Bahamas) Limited, P.O. Box N-3242, Nassau,
Bahamas.

As the majority of the transactions conducted by the Bank are conducted in United States dollars, the functional and
presentation currency of the financial statements is United States dollars rather than the local currency of the
Commonwealth of The Bahamas.

The Bank ceased operations effective November 29, 1999. It is management's intention that the Bank be wound-up
and liquidated by December 31, 2007. There are no employees at December 31, 2006 (2005: Nil)

2. Summary of significant accounting policies

Basis of preparation

This balance sheet has been prepared under the historical cost convention and in accordance with International
Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS"). The preparation of the balance sheet in conformity with IFRS requires
management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and
disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements. Actual results could differ from
those estimates. The following is a summary of the material accounting policies:

Iubllshed Standards

The application of amendments to published accounting standards and interpretations that became effective
January, 2006 did not result in substantial changes to the Bank's accounting policies. With the exception of
amendments to IAS 1 Presentation of Financial Statements regarding capital disclosures, that become efftitive
January 1, 2007, the application of new standards and interpretations issued but not yet effective will not have a
material impact on the Bank's financial statements in the period of initial application.

Cash and cash equivalents

Cash and cash equivalents consists of cash on demand.

Accounts payable and accrued liabilities

Liabilities classified as accounts payable and accrued liabilities are carried at cost which is the fair value of the
consideration to be paid in the future for goods and services received.

Share capital

Ordinary share capital is recognized at par value.

Nominee subsidiaries

The statements of the subsidiary companies are not consolidated in these financial statements as the amounts
involved are wholly insignificant.

Income taxes

There are no income taxes imposed on the Bank in the Commonwealth of The Bahamas. Consequently, no tax
liability or expense has been recorded in the accompanying financial statements. The Bank intends to conduct its
operations so that it is not liable to taxation in-other jurisdictions.

Assets under management

There were no assets or liabilities being administered by the Bank as custodian, trustee or nominee for the years
ended December 31, 2006 and 2005.


3. Loans

On December 12, 2005, the Bank's Board of Directors approved and paid a loan of $10,000,000 to the Bank's
shareholder BIFC. The loan was interest free and repayable on demand, and was repaid on October 16, 2006.

4. Maturities and concentrations of assets and liabilities
The following is.an analysis of significant assets and liabilities in order of maturity:

December 31, 2006:


Up to
30 days


Assets
Cash and due from banks

December 31, 2005:

10 000000


1,204,998 3.25%
S 10.00000 0.00%


$11.2 $ $ -


The following is an analysis of significant concentrations of assets and liabilities:

Significantly all assets and liabilities are denominated in United States dollars and at December 31, 2006 and
December 31, 2005 all of the time deposits and all of the cash on demand were placed with Bank of America, N.A.,
London and North Carolina branches.

5. Fair value of financial instruments and financial risk management

The Bank's financial instruments are short term in nature and are comprised of deposits, cash and other liquid
resources. Accordingly, the estimated fair value is not significantly different from the carrying value for each major
category of the Bank's assets and liabilities.

The main risk arising from the Bank's financial instruments is credit risk. Credit risk is the risk that a customer or
counterpart will be unable or unwilling to meet a commitment that it has entered into with the Bank. The Bank's
maximum exposure to credit risk in the event the counterparties fail to perform their obligations at December 31,
2006 and December 31, 2005 in relation to each class of recognized financial assets, is the carrying amount of those
asets as indicated in the balance sheet. The Bank manages credit risk associated with deposit assets by making
placements primarily within the Bank of America group.

Liquidity risk is the risk that the Bank will encounter difficulty in realizing assets and otherwise raising funds to
meet commitments. Interest rate risk is the risk that arises where there is an imbalance between rate and non rate-
sensitive assets and liabilities. The Bank has no exposure to either of these risks at December 31, 2006 and
December 31, 2005.

explanatory notes.

Management's Responsibility for the Financial Statements
Management is responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of this balance sheet in accordance with
International Financial Reporting Standards. This responsibility includes: designing, implementing and maintaining
internal control relevant to the preparation and fair presentation of financial statements that are free from material
misstatement, whether due to fraud or error; selecting and applying appropriate, accounting policies; and making
accounting estimates that are reasonable in the circumstances.

Auditors'Responsibility
Our responsibility is to express an opinion on this balance sheet based on our audit. We conducted our audit in
accordance with International Standards on Auditing. Those standards require that we comply with ethical
requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance whether the balance sheet is free from
material misstatement.
An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial
statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditors' judgment, including the assessment of the risks of
material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments,
the auditors consider internal control relevant to the entity's preparation and fair presentation of the financial
statements in order to design audit'procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of
expressing anlopinion on the effectiveness of the entity's internal control. An audit also includes evaluating the
appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of accounting estimates made by management,
as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements.

We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis tor our audit
opinion.

Opinion
In our opinion, the accompanying balance sheet presents fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of
Bank of America Trust and Banking Corporation (Bahamas) Limited as of December 31, 2006 in accordance with
International Financial Reporting Standards.

Emphasis ofMatter
Without qualifying our opinion we draw attention to Note 1 to the balance sheet. As explained therein, proceedings
have commenced which will ultimately lead to the voluntary liquidation of the Company.

We also emphasize that the accompanying balance sheet does not comprise a complete set of financial statements in

Notes to the Balance Sheet
31 December 2006


1. Incorporation and Activities

Pasche Bank & Trust Limited (the Bank) is incorporated under the Companies Act, 1992
of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas, and is licenced under the Banks and Trust
Companies Regulation Act, 2000 to carry on banking and trust business from within The
Bahamas. The principal activities of the Bank are providing banking, custody, trustee,
investment management and advisory services.

The registered office is situated at Bayside Executive Park, Blake Road, Nassau, Bahamas.

The Bank is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Pasche International Holding L.td., a company
incorporated in the Commonwealth of The Bahamas, which is an indirect wholly-owned
subsidiary of Banque Pasche SA (the Parent), a company incorporated in Switzerland.
The ultimate holding entity is Credit Mutual Group, an entity domiciled in France

2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

The principal accounting policies applied in the preparation of this balance sheet are set
out below. These policies have been consistently applied to all the years presented, unless
otherwise stated.


(a) Basis of presentation

'The balance sheet has been prepared in accordance with International Financial
Reporting Standards (IFRS) and under the historical cost convention, as modified by
the revaluation of derivative financial instruments. The preparation of the I'alan;ce
sheet in accordance with IFRS requires management to make estimates and
assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure
of contingent assets and liabilities as of the date of the balance sheet. Actual icsults
could differ from those estimates.

The application of amendments to published accounting standards and
interpretations that became effective 1 January 2000 did not result in substantial
changes to the Bank's accounting policies. With the exception of the new disclosure
requirements of IFRS 7 Financial Instruments: Disclosures, and anlcndmllents to JAS
1 Presentation.of Financial Statements regarding capital disclosures, that become
effective 1 January 2007, the application of new standards and interpretations issued
but not yet effective will not have a material impact on the 13ank's balance sheet in
the period of initial application. On adoption, IFRS 7 will supercede IAS 30 and the
disclosure requirements of IAS 32.

(b) Foreign currency transactions

The balance sheet is presented in Swiss francs, which is the Bank's functional and
presentation currency. Foreign currency transactions are translated into the
functional currency using the exchange rates prevailing at the dates of transactions.
Foreign exchange gains and losses resulting from settlement of such transactions and
from the translation at year end rates of monetary assets and liabilities denominated
in foreign currencies are recognized in the income statement.

(c) Loans and advances

Loans and advances to customers are recognized initially at lair value and
subsequently measured at amortised cost, less provision for impairment. A provision
for impairment is established when there is objective evidence that the Bank will not
be able to collect all amounts according to the original terms of the loan or advance.
The provision is the difference between the carrying amount and present value of
estimated cash flows discounted at the original effective interest rate

The Bank's policy is to extend credit to customers only when the Bank is holding
assets on behalf of the borrowers that can be used as collateral to fully support the
loan or advance. Accordingly, the Bank does not have any provision for impairment
of loans and advances to customers.

(d) Derivative financial instruments

Derivatives are initially recognized at fair value on the date on which a derivative
contract is entered into and subsequently remeasured at fair value. Fair values are
obtained from quoted market prices in active markets, including recent market
transactions, and valuation techniques, including discounted cash flow models and
option pricing models, as appropriate. All derivatives are carried as assets when fair
value is positive and as liabilities when fair value is negative.

(e) Fiduciary accounts and assets under administration

The Bank acts as trustee and in other fiduciary capacities that result in the holding or
placing of assets on behalf of individuals, trusts and other institutions. These assets
are excluded from the balance sheet as they do not belong to the Rank.


(f) Income and expense recognition

Fees and commissions are generally recognised on the accrual basis when the service
has been provided. Commissions and fees arising from negotiating, or participating
in the negotiation of, a transaction for a client' such as the arrangement of the
acquisition or disposal of investments are recognized on completion of the
underlying transaction. Portfolio, management, advisory and custody fees are
recognized based on the applicable service contract, usually on a time apportionate
basis. The Bank's billing cycle is such that management and administration fees
charged to clients are usually billed and collected in the same accounting period that
they are earned.

Interest income and expense for all interest bearing financial instruments are
recognized in the income statement using the effective interest method

All other income and expenses are recognized on the accrual basis.

(g) Employee benefits

The Bank has a defined contribution plan For all eligible employees, which is
managed and administered by a third party incorporated in the Commonwealth of
The Bahamas. Participating employees contribute 2.5% of their eligible earnings,
and the Bank contributes three times that amount as its share of total contributions.
The Bank's contributions vest with a participant after two years of service, and it has
no further payment obligations once the contributions have been paid. The Bank's
contributions are recognized in the income statement when they are due.

(h) Taxation

The Bank is domiciled in the Commonwealth of The Bahamas, and under the current
laws of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas, there are no income, capital gains or
other taxes imposed on the Bank.

(i) Corresponding figures

Where necessary, corresponding figures are adjusted to conform with changes in
presentation in the current year.

4. Financial Risk Management

The Bank engages in transactions that expose it to various types of risk in the normal
course of business. Such risks include fiduciary, credit, interest rite, liquidity and
currency risks. The Bank's financial performance is dependent on rits aiblity to understand
and effectively manage these risks, to achieve an appropriate balance hctw.tcc risk and
return.

(a) Fiduciary risk

The Bank provides significant custody, investment management, ads ism,.' aid other
fiduciary services. These activities give nse to fiduciary risk, which is the risk that
the Bank may fail in carrying out certain mandates in accordance wilh the wishes of
its customers, or to deliver expected performance goals. To manage this exposure,
the Bank generally takes a conservative approach in its undertakings for customers.

(b) Credit risk
-AL
Credit risk arises from the potential failure of a counterpart to perform according to
the terms of a contract. From this perspective, the Bank's credit risk exposure is
concentrated in its deposits placed with other institutions, loans and advances to
customers and derivative financial instruments with positive fair values.

The Bank's deposits have been placed with high quality international banking
institutions and loans and advances to customers are fully supported by assets
pledged as collateral and held by the Bank on behalf of the customers. Derivative
contracts are either with reputable financial institutions or with customers whose
obligations are fully supported by assets they have lodged with the Bank as
collateral.

(c) Interest rate risk

Cash flow interest rate risk is the risk that the future cash flows of a financial
instrument will fluctuate because of changes in market interest rates. Fair value
interest rate risk is the risk that the value of a financial instrument will fluctuate
because of changes in market interest rates. The Bank takes on exposure to the
effects of fluctuations in the prevailing levels of market interest rates on both its cash
flow and fair value risks. Interest margins may increase as a result of such changes
but may decrease or create losses in the event that unexpected movements arise. The
Bank manages this risk by seeking to maintain assets and liabilities with similar
principal values, interest rates and maturity or repricing dates.

The table below summarises the Bank's exposure to interest rate risk. It includes the
Bank's assets and liabilities at carrying amounts, categorised by the earlier of
contractual repricing or maturity date from the balance sheet date.

(d) Liquidity risk

Liquidity risk is the risk that the Bank will not have the necessary resources to meet
its contractual obligations as they come due. The Bank manages its liquidity by
matching liabilities with assets of similar maturity periods. The analysis of assets
and liabilities disclosed under interest rate risk is indicative of a contractual maturity
analysis.



(e) Currency risk

The Bank takes on exposure to currency risk arising from the effect of fluctuations in
the prevailing foreign currency exchange rates on its financial position and cash
flows. Management sets limits on the level of exposure by currency and in aggregate
for both overnight and intra-day position, which are monitored daily with oversight
from the Parent. The table below summarises the Bank's exposure to foreign
currency exchange risk.

5. Commitments and Contingencies

(a) Derivative financial instruments

The Bank enters into forward currency contracts solely as part of its customer-related
trading activities. Forward currency contracts are contracts to purchase or sell
foreign currencies at specific rates of exchange on specific dates in the future. Risk
arises from the potential inability of counterparties to perform under the terms of the
contracts (credit risk) and from fluctuations in the foreign exchange rates (market
risk). The Bank manages its market risk of customer-related positions by taking
offsetting positions with its affiliates, resulting in minimal market exposure. The
credit risk of customer positions is managed by applying uniform credit standards
maintained for all activities with credit risk. Collateral held generally includes cash,
cash equivalents, and marketable securities.

The contract amounts of these instruments reflect the extent of the Bank's
involvement in forward currency contracts and do not represent the Bank's risk of
loss due to counterpart nonperformance. The Bank's exposure to credit risk of such
instruments is limited to those contracts with positive fair values, as reported in the
balance sheet.

As of 31 December, the Bank had contractual commitments under open forward
currency contracts as follows:


Commitments to purchase foreign currencies
- Affiliates
- Customers

Commitments to sell foreign currencies
- Affiliates
- Customers

(b) Guarantees

As of 31 December 2006, the Bank was contingently liable for guarantees issued to
third parties totalling approximately CHF 825,000 (2005: CHF 867,000). Assets
held by the Bank on behalf of customers have been pledged as collateral in full
support of these guarantees.

(c) Lease commitments

The Bank leases its office space and residential property for certain key management
personnel under operating leases whereby a significant portion of the risks and
rewards of ownership are maintained by the lessor. Payments made under these
leases are charged to the income statement over the respective periods of the leases.

Future minimum lease payments as of 31 December 2006 are as follows:

6. Fair value of financial instruments

Financial instruments utilised by the Bank include the recorded financial assets and
liabilities. The Bank's financial instruments are short-term in nature. Accordingly, the fair
value of the Bank's recorded financial assets and liabilities approximate their carrying
value.

AI /. IoUIILlUIaKrIIIa ng UUy u
the beaked whale has been
launched by the Bahamas
Marine Mammal Research
Qrganisation.
'Known as the Bahamas
leaked Whale Ecology Study,
tle three-year project was cre-
ated with the support of a grant
fiom the US Office of Naval
rIesearch.
S"This study will have great
implications for marine mam-
nial conservation in the
IBahamas and will help us to
apply our findings around Aba-
c) on a much broader scope,"
.slid Diane Claridge, leader of
the scientific team on thepro-
ject.
'"For example, we have given
oir data to the Nature Conser-
vancy (TNC) to develop a mod-
el to predict important habitats
for cetaceans which has shown
that Rocky Point just off Sandy
Ppint is preferred habitat for
some resident species."
The Bahamas Marine Mam-
nial Research Organisation
($MMRO), formerly known as
Bhhamas Marine Mammal Sur-
vey, is a Bahamian non-profit
organisation dedicated to
research and education with the
goal of contributing to the con-


"To date, BMMRO has doc-
umented 24 species of marine
mammals in the Bahamas,"
explained the organisation in a
statement. "While all species
are interesting and vital com-
ponents of the marine environ-
ment, perhaps the most alluring
is the family of whales called
beaked whales. There are cur-
rently 21 known species of
beaked whales in the world.
However, the natural behav-
iour of beaked whales makes
them difficult to study."
The study will include three
months of dedicated survey
effort of the deep water
canyons and basins of the
northern and central Bahamas
aboard the R/V Odyssey, a 95
foot sailboat owned by the
Ocean Alliance. The first 30-
day survey is scheduled to
begin on May 5, departing from
Freeport.
Most of BMMRO's research
efforts thus far have been con-
centrated in Abaco, as the
organisation has been stationed
there since 1992.
The main research technique
employed by BMMRO is pho-
to-identification a process
where photographs are taken


the researchers encounter.
"Each animal has unique
characteristics that can be used
to tell them apart, much like
humans having unique sets of
fingerprints. To supplement the
data collected by photo-identi-
fication, samples of sloughed
skin and faeces are collected
for genetic analysis," said the
statement.
According to BMMRO,
some species of beaked whales
are so elusive that they are
known only from stranded
specimens.
Three species of beaked
whale have been documented
in the Bahamas: Blainville's
beaked whale, Cuvier's beaked
whale and Gervais' beaked
whale. South Abaco is one of
the leading study sites in the
world for these deep diving
whales, where they feed along
the steep canyon walls of the
Great Bahama Canyon just off
Sandy Point, where BMMRO
is located.
In addition to Claridge, the
team includes Charlotte Dunn,
Olivia Patterson and Edward
Adderley (all Bahamians), as
well as Leigh Hickmott and
Kiya Gornik, from the United

Kingdom and United States,
respectively.
Dr Jonathan Gordon of the
Sea Mammal Research Unit
(SMRU) based at the Univer-
sity of St Andrew's in Scotland
will also join the cruise to test a
new underwater listening
device that Navy vessels will be
able to use to detect beaked
whales acoustically and avoid
conducting sonar tests in areas
where beaked whales are
found.
"The main goals of the sur-
vey will be to learn how many
beaked whales there are in the
Great Bahama Canyon, where
they are found and how they
are related to beaked whales
outside the canyon," explained
the statement. "To do this, the
Odyssey will run zig-zag tran-


sect lines across Northeast and
Northwest Providence Chan-
nels and Tongue of the Ocean
while the scientists conduct
visual searches for whales using
high-powered binoculars called
Big Eyes.
"When beaked whales are
sighted a team will be deployed
in a skiff to obtain identifica-
tion photographs and tissue
samples of the whales. Six days
of the cruise will be spent work-
ing in conjunction with the
Naval Undersea Warfare Cen-
tre (NUWC) at the AUTEC
base in Andros. BMMRO will
be helping NUWC test the
accuracy of their bottom-
mounted hydrophone array in
the detection and identification
of cetacean species."
After the study, BMMRO


will be able to test how well the
Nature Conservancy model
predicts important habitats
elsewhere in the canyon. '
.Information gained from this
cruise will also contribute to
the first comprehensive survey
of marine mammals in toe
Tongue of the Ocean. '-
"This baseline data will help
assess the impacts of naval
operations at the AUTEC base
in Andros and perhaps leadto
more effective mitigationfof
their activities," the statement
said.
If the Odyssey encounters
unfavorable weather for sur-
veying, the research crew says it
plans to go ashore in nearby
towns to give informative pie-
sentations about Bahamtain
marine mammals.

The winning entries were
chosen by a panel of judges,
including Michael Jervis, cre-
ative artist and manager of
vertical markets in the Min-
istry of Tourism; Charlene
Carey, environmental educa-
tor at BREEF, Tamica Rah-
ming, director of parks and
science; Hank Ferguson,
Bahamas National Trust con-
servation finance specialist;
Jasmine Cooper-Williams of
the Bahamas National Trust;
Milano Bistro owners, Nicole
and Natasha Farah; Janeen
Bullard, parks planner and
community liaison officer,
Bahamas National Trust;
Annette Demsey, assistant
director of marine mammals,
and Rogan Smith, media and
marketing relations co-ordi-
nator at Dolphin Encounters.
"These kids are really cre-
ative, which made the judging
very difficult more difficult
than I had anticipated," Mr
Jervis said. "I made the rounds
at the tables and I was looking
for originality. I was particular-
ly impressed with the posters
that the younger kids drew. The
children in grades four to six
really brought out their creative
side."

Impressed

Ms Rahming said she was
amased at the variety of con-
cepts that the students came
up with.
"They didn't have a lot to
work with, and yel they man-
aged to produce some of the
most beautiful posters I've
ever seen. I was especially
proud that Dolphin Encoun-
ters has chosen to have this
poster competition, which is
now in its seventh year. This
competition is also a wonder-
ful educational tool that I'm
sure will make kids more envi-
ronmentally aware." she said.
Mr l-crguson said tlie postir


competition is a great way'6f
exposing students to the
marine environment and some
related challenges.
"Dolphin Encounters
should be commended for its
commitment to marine edu-
cation. It's surprising that in a
country where most things
are connected to our envi-
ronment, particularly the
marine environment, that
there are not more pro-
grammes committed to edcu-
cation. I remain hopeful that
events such as this competi-
tion will positively influence
our students to be better
stewards of our envirbri-
ment," he said.
"Like dolphins, our sea
lions are ambassadors for all
marine life and show how all
of our actions can affect our
ocean pals," added Tanya
Moss. education assistant.at
DE Project BEACH. "The
children of the Bahamas arre
very serious about protecting
our environment and their
posters reflect their commit-
ment."
The student winners have
been invited to Dolphin

Last September, one male

your free time to do so.

friend or family member this week,
Gemini. You won't see this person
for a while and you need to maxi-
mize the time spent together.

two can move on.

tionships 'vith others. Take a few
days off to reflo6t oli new goals1
VIRGO Aug 24/Sept 22
Don't make any rash purchases iq the

geted for. If need be, you mighi have
to ask a friend for a loan.

you, Libra, but you're not siue if you
should invest. Get a professional opin-
ion before you write out any checks.

week, Pisces. Something has dome

Yifan Hou v Mikhail Krasenkov,
Corus Wijk aan Zee 2007.
China's Yifan, just 13 years of
age, already has a world ranking
at men's grandmaster level and
is shaping up as a potential rival
to the all-time female number
one Judit Polgar. The Beijing
schoolgirl impressed again at
January's international meet in
the Netherlands, and would
have done better still but for
missing a relatively simple tactic
against top-seeded Krasenkov,
Poland's number one GM. Yifan
went 1 Rb8+ which led to
defeat after many
complications. The right two-
move sequence in the diagram

would have ensured White (to
play) a dear material
advantage. What did she miss?

Grand Bahama





pictured for





promotions


TWO Bahamian photogra-
phers, aided by a creative direc-
tor, producers, wardrobe con-
sultant and models, have cap-
tured Grand Bahama's natural
beauty and stunning vistas in
photographs commissioned by
the Grand Bahama Tourism
Office for more effective
tourism promotions.
"There was a dire need to
update the bank of photos avail-
,able for Grand Bahama Island,
'which are used to promote the
destination in brochures and
magazines, on posters and
online," said Kerry Fountain,
director of the Grand Bahama
Island Tourism Board. "To
update our image bank and
assist us in co-ordinating this
photography project, we con-
tacted our colleagues at the
Bahamas Tourist Office in
Canada and their public rela-
>{tions firm Punch Communica-
,,,tions."


Team assembled to


update photo bank for


use in tourism material


Headed by the creative direc-
tor James Gauley of Punch
Communications in Toronto,
Canada, the team travelled
throughout Grand Bahama
photographing all points of
interests from Sweeting's Cay
and Deep Water Cay in the
east, Lucaya and the beaches,
the city of Freeport, Eight Mile
Rock and West End.
Shots were taken of a wide
range of activities that the island
has to offer, including horse-


back riding, Dolphin Encoun-
ters, dining and entertainment,
and local festivals.

Production

Both producers on this pro-
ject, Donna Mackey, public
relations manager at the GBI
Tourism Office and Ambrose
Morris, regional public relations
manager at the Bahamas
Tourist Office in Canada, stated

Ambrose Morris, regional public relations manager r, Bahamas Tourist Office in Canada.


that it was important to have
Bahamian photographers and
talent involved in this project.
"We wanted images that
reflect the way Bahamians see
Grand Bahama Island, so that
the resultant photographs will
be an invitation and enticement
to whoever saw them," said Ms
Mackev.
Mr Morris added, "Both pho-
tographers on this project and
all of the models are Grand


Bahamian residents a first.
We want to continue this trend
of engaging and challenging our
local professionals to produce
the world-class products and
services required to promote
tourism for the Bahamas."
The photos will be featured in
the Grand Bahama Island sec-
tion of lie Bahamas Image
Bank (www.bahamasimage-
bank.com) and will be used to
produce advertising and pro-


motional materials for the.le&;
tination.
Writers, magazines, newV4iA
pers and other travel relged-
companies have been directed:
to the Bahamas Image Bank to
source images for articles,
brochures and promotional fly--
ers.
The images will also be used
worldwide to create print ads,s

BEIJING A Bahamian cul-
itural contingent is currently in
'"4he People's Republic of Chi-
0"'fia taking part in the seventh
"' 'Meet In Beijing" arts festival.
The festival is a month-long
-event that showcases Chinese
-.nd international culture at var-
ious venues throughout the city
.,of Beijing.
".~- The Bahamas is taking part
it the outdoor performance
r series and the Chaoyang Inter-
-.' national Pop Festival, from
' ,April 30 to May 7.
' Other performers hail from
countries as far flung as Japan,
SBrazil, Rwanda and the Unit-
-' d States.
"We would really like for the
People of Beijing to really see
who we are as a people, our cul-


ture, and how unique and dif-
ferent we are from any other
group that might perform at the
festival," said special projects
officer in the cultural affairs
division and group co-ordina-
tor for the Bahamas Creative
Folklore Arts Company Dr
Ann Higgins.
"The songs that we bring are
very exciting and energetic
songs and this is one of things
that distinguish us from the oth-
ers and they (Beijing) love it,"
she said.
Dr Higgins said that the
group was created specifically
to showcase Bahamian singing
and folk dancing at festival.
"This is our fourth year at the
festival and every year we bring
a different group of young peo-


ple," she said.
Each time Bahamian repre-
sentatives are invited to per-
form in Beijing, Dr Higgins said,
they are asked to bring a dif-
ferent aspect of Bahamian cul-
ture, such as a junkanoo.
Artistic director of the group
Pastor Henry Higgins said that
they want to showcase indige-
nous music and dances of the
Bahamas, especially those from
the "old times."
"We hope that coming here
we would be able to showcase
some of our culture here and
that would help to draw some of
the people here to visit the
Bahamas," he said.
"Usually we bring singers or
dancers, separate and apart,
during different years; but this


time we have a combination of
both and 1 am just thankful that
we have a chance to showcase
their talent in other parts of the
world," he said. "I am sure that
the Chinese will accept them
well and they will be appreci-
ated for what they are doing."
Mr Higgins said that agencies
in the Bahamas, especially the
Ministry of Foreign AfTairs, the
Office of the Prime Minister
and the Embassy of the Peo-
ple's Republic of China in the
Bahamas, assisted greatly with
the group being in Beijing.
Dr Higgins added that the
Bahamas signed a cultural
exchange agreement with Chi-
na. about four years ago.
"In the Bahamas, we just had
a Chinese Acrobatic Troupe


and now we are here in Beijing,
and we look forward to even
more groups coming to the
Bahamas and other groups
coming to China through our
governments' cultural exchange
programmes," she said.
Makheba Rolle, a four-time
"veteran" of the festival, said
that she likes tl.:. people in Chi-
Ia are enthusiastic about
Bahamian cultural expression.
"At home. with a few excep-
tions. you don't really get peo-
plc to come and certain kinds of
Bahamian performances; but
when we are here in China, the
people just flock the stage area
when we perform.
"When we start to dance, the
people, if they are at. another
stage watching somebody else


:ri~i 6] .jri n s iO[vFl-o


and they hear that we are pp
our stage, all come to watch us,'
she said.
"I feel that it is a priviege
just to be able to share what my
culture is with others from oth-
er countries," said group meml-
ber Alice Cox. "It is an honout
to be here." I
"1 am looking forward to reg-
resenting the Bahamas an
doing the best that I can do,
added first-timer Anwar
Thurston, whose parents made
the trip to Beijing with tlT
son. .b
Pastor Higgins said that grbi5l
members worked "real hacr:;
preparing for the festival. I
"When they are finished 1herg
they will go onto bigger and b~J
ter things," he said. ,,
