TO 'MAXIMISE JOBS'
IN PUBLIC SECTOR
By NOELLE NICOLLS
Tribune Staff Reporter
THE monopoly held by
the Bahamas Telecommu-
nications Company was
maintained for so many
years to "maximise jobs" in
the public sector and to pro-
tect the government's invest-
ment, Prime Minister
Hubert Ingraham said.
The old BTC would not
survive in the "aggressive
marketing environment" of
a liberalised market,
because it does not have the
necessary strengths in
"mobile service," said Mr-
Ingraham as he tabled doc-
uments related to the sale
of BTC to Cable and Wire-
He said concerns about
BTC's ability to compete

decision in the past to main-
tain the monopoly and pro-
tect its own investment.
"CWC is a global tele-
coms operator. It, Ihas
economies of scale and. the
strength to support BTC in
an aggressive competitive
environment. We therefore
see it as a partner financial-
ly and operationally very
strong, that can bring signif-
icant value to BTC," said
The competitiveness of
BTC depends on "a sus-
tained and significant ongo-
ing capital expenditure pro-
gramme," he said.-

Bishop calls for change in national work ethic
By TANEKA THOMPSON
Tribune Staff Reporter
RELIGIOUS leader Bish-
op Simeon Hall said he hopes
the creation of thousands of
new jobs through the Baha
Mar project will prompt the
Bahamian workforce to shed
its bad work habits.
On the heels of Prime Min-
ister Hubert Ingraham's
announcement that the Baha
Mar construction phase will
create as many as 4,500 jobs
for Bahamian labourers, Bish-
op Hall urged workers to
show up to work with a posi-
tive attitude and a commit-
ment to perform well.
In addition to the construc-
tion jobs, there will be about
7,000 new jobs available for
Bahamians once construction
is complete on the $2.6 billion
mega-resort in Cable Beach.
"The many opportunities
for employment which the
Baha Mar project will create
for thousands of Bahamian
workers must be met with a
new and different attitude
towards work and rendering
service on the part of employ-
ees," said Bishop Hall in a
"We commend the govern-
ment for doing what any good

THE government will pay
half a million dollars to Baha
Mar for the cleanup of an oil
spill discovered, nine years' ago
in the Cable Beach area.
Under the Heads of Agree-
ment (HOA) for the devel-

According to Dwayne Cur-

and Risk Assessment Divi-
sion (EMRAD) of the
Department of Environmen-
tal Services, a significant accu-
mulation of oil was first dis-
covered in 2002 by a resident
of Ruby Avenue during
installation of a septic tank.
"The source was a leaking
underground transition line
from a laundry facility at the
Radission Hotel which ovei
time has accumulated many
thousands of gallons of oil,"
said Mr Curtis.
At the time of the discov-
ery, the property was owned

ican company, was selected
to initiate a three phase clean-
up plan. The first stage was
completed in 2007, Mr Cur-
tis said, adding that the pro-
ject was "aborted" because of
the shift in ownership.
According to the HOA,
upon purchasing the property,
Baha Mar became responsi-
ble for submitting a revised
clean-up plan and completing
the clean-up process.
"The government is work-
ing together with Baha Mar

Venezuela charges ex-generals in 1989 violence
VENEZUELAN prosecutors have brought
criminal charges against two retired generals
for their roles in violence during unrest in
1989, the attorney general said Tuesday.
The 1989 riots in Caracas, known as the
"Caracazo," were triggered by a hike in gaso-
line prices and public transportation fares. The
government said at least 300 people died, but
some rights activists say hundreds more were
killed many of them shot by security forces
struggling to re-establish order.
The retired generals Freddy Maya Cardona
of the National Guard and Luis Fuentes Serra
of the Caracas police were charged for their
roles in some of the deaths, Attorney Gener-
al Luis Ortega Diaz told reporters.
Maya was charged with being an accom-
plice in the killings of 10 people, while Fuentes
was charged with being an accomplice in the
killings of 21 people, the attorney general's
office said in a statement.
Their cases bring to five the number of
former officials facing charges for security
forces' response to the unrest. None has been

Union leader promises a 'small Egypt'
YESTERDAY the Government laid on
the table of the House the much anticipated
agreement to sell 51 per cent of Bahamas
Telecommunications Company to Cable and
Wireless Communications. The transaction
is still subject to parliamentary and regula-
Opposition leader Perry Christie quickly
announced that his party will not support
the sale. He said the Opposition was par-
ticularly "grieved that even though the deci-
sion was made to sell, the decision was made
to sell 51 per cent." To him that was "an
error of judgment on the part of this gov-
ernment and certainly does not serve the
best interests of the people of.the Bahamas."
We know that Mr Christie, a lawyer,
probably does not have much practical expe-
rience in the business world, but when a
purchaser is so hobbled in a sale as is
Cable & Wireless the vendor has to relin-
quish something to keep him interested in
the purchase. An early snag in the negotia-
tions was C&W's need to slash 30 per cent of
BTC's 1,150 work force to put the company
in a position to compete in an open market.
Obviously, Mr Ingraham, fighting desper-
ately to save BTC jobs and making it clear
that his government would not tolerate any
forced redundancies, had to somehow
"sweeten the pie" to keep C&W at the nego-
tiating. table. Many benefits, such. as very
generous pensions among other perks, had
to be protected for current staff.
We presume 51 per cent and the three
year period of exclusivity fdr its cellular ser-
vice had to be the bait to clinch the deal.
And yet BTC employees are screaming
,that government is not thinking of the
Bahamian people. Maybe they have a point
there. An argument can be made that in his
effort to protect BTC staff, he did indeed
defer many of the benefits that the Bahami-
an people want now for another three years.
This is to protect BTC staff and give them
time to decide their future.
If this had been an ordinary sale or
even if BTC workers had become the own-
ers of the company reality would have
set in very quickly. They would have become
business men and women overnight, and
about 300 staff would have had to have been
made redundant immediately for the over-
burdened company to survive.
We presume that 51 per cent was the
price that government had to pay to pro-
tect the jobs of many ungrateful staff.
Denise Wilson, BCPOU secretary gen-
eral, declared that even though some
Bahamians might not understand why unions
are continuing to fight the sale, "it comes
down to our rights." We understand only
too well why they are fighting, they are not
thinking of the country, or the Bahamians
who pay their salaries, their focus is'solely on
As for BCPOU president Bernard Evans,
despite wanting us to believe that unionists
are fighting the sale for the sake of future
generations, he has vowed to turn thigh coun-
try into a "small Egypt." Those of us who
have watched television these past two
weeks know exactly what that means -

nation, what does he plan to salvage from the
ruins to pass on to his children?
He talks about' showing the strength of
Mr Evans is fooling himself if he thinks his
minority, now trying-to hold the govern-
ment hostage, represents the will of the
majority of Bahamians.
"I want to apologise right now publicly to
all of our valued customers," said Mr Evans.
"Be patient with us, but needless to say that
services will be affected somewhat. Be
patient with us, we are fighting for a cause
we believe, we know, is. bigger than BTC's
members and employees. We are fighting
for the future of our children."
Mr Evans forgets that Bahamians have
been patient will their performance for too
long now. The patience of most of us has

Nor have we any patience with an unrea-
sonable people who reject an invitation to at

Evans or union leaders.
EDITOR, The Tribune.
Has Branville McCartney
lost his mind?
.I was completely taken
aback by the nerve of this
political neophyte to fix his
mouth and say that Prime
Minister Hubert Ingraham is
not compassionate. Mr
McCartney's desperation is
showing. It's my opinion he
simply has sour grapes
because Mr Ingraham refuses
to name him as his successor.
I have a bit of advice for him:
wait your turn. There are oth-
ers who were there before
I heard Mr McCartney say
on another radio station that
he is still an FNM member. I
find that hard to believe con-
sidering his recent statements.
He may be an FNM on paper,
but in his heart, only God
knows what he is.
I am a swing voter. I have
voted for both the FNM and
the PLP over the years. I am
one of the few people in this
country who choose to vote
for candidate rather than the
party. Mr.Ingraham certainly
has his ways and I often dis-
agree with him, but to say he
is not compassionate is ridicu-
lous. My family and other
Bahamian families have ben-
efited greatly from his love
for his country and his peo-
ple. Immediately after the
recession, Mr Ingraham put
social programmes in place to
assist struggling families. I
have relatives whose lights
were cut off and were recon-
nected thanks to Mr Ingra-
ham. I have friends who did-
n't have any food in their
homes and they were able to
get help. My mother was in
danger of losing her home
because she was having trou-
ble meeting her mortgage and
Mr Ingraham's policies
Mr Ingraham has a stern
demeanour that can be mis-
construed as someone who is
heartless, but I honestly
believe he is far from that. I
see a leader who cares about
his people. As a matter of
fact, he's helped non-Bahami-
EDITOR, The Tribune.
I was very sad to hear of the death of my
old friend, Paul Bower, who was a close
associate and staunch ally during both of
my forays into Bahamas journalism (1966-9
and 1999-2009). I had great respect for him,
both as a person and professional journalist,
and find it hard to accept that I shall never
again be able to enjoy his wise counsel and
impish humour ,
I first met Paul when I joined The Nassau
Guardian as a political reporter in.1966. He
and I were among journalists who covered
an Apollo space landing in Bahamian waters
He was by then running his own newspa-
per, The Star, having spent several years as
Guardian editor in the early 1960s.
Later, after I had joined The Tribune,
we were both very much involved in the
remarkable case of David Knox, the
Bahamas Information Director who was
tried for espionage in Haiti and sentenced to
death in the late summer of 1968. Fortu-
nately, Knox a good friend of Paul's was
reprieved in a rare moment of compassion
by Frangois 'Papa Doc' Duvalier, the Hait-
ian tyrant noted more for summary execu-
tions than humanitarian gestures, and was
freed from prison after only a few months.
When I returned to The Bahamas after 30
years away, we resumed our friendship and
ans. Following that deadly
earthquake in Haiti he assist-
ed Haitians, despite the huge
public opposition. If that isn't
compassion I don't know
Mr McCartney, what have
you done besides quit mid-
term as a Cabinet minister
and bad-mouth your leader?

my wife and I enjoyed many happy times
with Paul and his wife Ericka, who always
made us so welcome at their lovely Cable
Beach home. Paul was kind enough to make
a speech at the launch of my book about
Sir Harry Oakes in 2005 and figured promi-
nently in my book about Papa Doc, pub-
lished in 2007.
As a journalist, editor and publisher, Paul
made his mark on the Bahamian media
scene for nearly half a century and was writ-
ing lucid, informed articles for The Tribune
right up until 2007 or thereabouts, long after
his "official" retirement. He was particular-
ly interested in free trade and other inter-
national issues, displaying great intelligence
and insight when tackling even the most
complex of topics.
As a friend, he was supportive and loyal,
undoubtedly one of my favourite Nassau
people. He was a kindly, quietly-spoken
man whose mischievous sense of fun lit up
many a day for me. My wife Joan and I are
thinking of Ericka, Nigel, Bobby and the
whole family as they try to come to terms
with their loss.

y FREEPORT The passing
- of retired Anglican Bishop the
i Right Reverend Michael Eldon
was described as "a tremendous
; loss" to the country and to the
Anglican Diocese in the
j; Bahamas and Turks and Caicos.
Bishop Eldon died on Feb-
ruary 7.'He was 79.
- The Anglican clergyman was
well known and well loved in
Grand Bahama, where he
served as rector for nine years at
I the Parish of St Mary Magda-
lene in West End, with respon-
' sibility for the entire island with
exception of Christ the King
f Church in Freeport.
, A mass of thanksgiving in
f memory of Bishop Eldon will
1J be held at St Mary Magdalene

Parishioner Cecil Thompson
said Anglicans in Grand
Bahama respected and revered.
Bishop Eldon, who demitted
office at the height of his infla-
ence after 25 years.
"He was the first Bahamian
Bishop of the diocese and he
voluntarily demitted office in
1996," Mr Thompson recdled.
"Many persons admired him
and in leaving he set an excel-
Jent example not only for the
'clergy and ministers of the
gospel, but for all of us in all
occupations and walks of life,"
Mr Thompson added.
"When it is time to get off
centre stage, most of us remain
centre stage until people are
tired of us and chase us off the
stage, but Bishop Eldon moved
off the stage when the applause.
was the loudest."
Mr Thompson said Bishop
Eldon brought Family Island
churches to the centre of the
diocese, and held a special place
in his heart for. the parishes in
:Mangrove Cay, Andros and
Sweeting's Cay, Grand
"He made every Anglican,
but especially those of us from
the Family Islands, feelthat you-
were an integral part of the dio-
cese," he said.
Education was also impor-
tant to Bish6p Eldon. As a trib-
ute to him, two Anglican
schools in Grand Bahama -
Freeport Anglican High and
Discovery Primary were
renamed in his honour.
"His focus on education was
enormous," Mr Thompson said.
"He would always petition cen-,
tral government for proper
staffing of teachers and improve-
ments.for schools, as. well as
docks, roads, and telephones in
"The Tribune would have car-
'ried Bishop Eldon's charge for

said. Mr Thompson described
Bishop Eldon as man of tremen-
dous nobility and humility.

Thanking the Advisory and. Privati-
sation Committees for their hard work
on bringing this deal to fruition, Prime
Minister Hubert Ingraham said his par-
ty is not one of monopolists, and was
happy to finally bring to an end this
privatization exercise of BTC which
began in 1992.
"We are satisfied that we have found
.the right partner for the Bahamas; that
telecommunications and communica-
tions generally will be improved, that
cost will be lowered, and that we will be
on the cutting edge of technology," Mr
The Prime Minister noted that they
would lay copies of the Memorandum
of Understanding with Cable and Wire-
less on the table of the House of
Assembly yesterday and post copies on
the worldwide web. The government,
he added, will also wait for URCA, the
communications regulatory body, to
undertake its processes on the MOU
which he said should take no longer
than 30 days. This action, Mr Ingraham
said, will commence before debate on
BTC's sale will take place in the House
"After that, the government will
move in Parliament, the Privatisation
Bill, the Amendment to the Communi-
cations Act and the minor amendments
to the Utilities Regulation Act. We
expect that the transaction will be
finalised on April 4th of this year.
"While we have in the documents
some earlier dates as possible dates, we
have determined that we are going to
give maximum opportunity for people
to say whatever is laid on their hearts to
say, whatever suggestions they have.
"From the government's point of
view we are absolutely satisfied we are
doing what is best for the Bahamas and
for the Bahamian people," Mr Ingra-
Cable and Wireless CEO David
Shaw thanked the Prime Minister for
his trust in the signing of this contract,
and noted that Cable and Wireless will
work hard to understand the culture
and needs of the people of the Bahamas
from a telecommunications aspect.
"So alongside running BTC in a way
that puts the business at the heart of
the community, we also need to put the
customer at the heart of BTC, and that
will mean change. We have to complete
the network upgrade so that you can
deliver new services, particularly in this
world of data that we are now in. We
have to introduce new innovation and
new products, whether that is TV,
music, or mobile, commerce, or faster
broadband, we have to deliver what
our consumers and businesses want.
"We have to lower prices, whether
that is domestic or roaming, and we
have to improve service so that cus-
tomers can access BTC in many more
ways than they can today and provide
them better services to the business
community as well as social telecoms
with the government will be an impor-
tant part of the mix. The world of tele-
coms is changing and we need to ensure
that BTC is at the forefront of that
"Now I know that some people may
be nervous about a new owner at BTC,
and at Cable and Wireless we know
that it is our job that in the long run we
both want the same thing a healthy
competitive enterprise focused on pro-
viding the best service to the Bahamian
people and fulfilling careers for our
Bahamian colleagues," he said.
Mr Shaw said it was a privilege and
an honour to sign off on the deal and he
thanked the Prime Minister for giving
them this opportunity, vowing they will
not let him down.

THE HISTORY OF PRIVATIZATION
In 1997, during the FNM government's second
consecutive term in office and just prior to the
* general election of that year, Prime Minister
Hubert Ingraham made public his government's
intent to privatise the then Bahamas Telecom-
munications Corporation. After winning the 1997
general election, the FNM set about to privatise'
In 1998, the FNM appointed a privatization
committee. The committee was assisted in its work
by Deutche Bank, Ernst & Young and Hogan &
Hartson law firm of Washington, DC.
The committee offered for sale 49 per cent of
the shares of BTC to a strategic partner with man-
agement control. The government's attempt to
privatise the corporation did not succeed, largely
because accountants could not render an opinion
on the state of its accounts particularly its "fixed
assets", "capital works in progress" and "accrued
In 2002 the PLP government sought to con-
tinue the privatization of BTC, beginning with the
vesting orders tabled in parliament in July 2002.
They launched a sale of 49 per cent of BTC by
public announcement in October of 2002. In Feb-
ruary they appointed what was styled a "Tenders
Commission", with technical support provided by
Deutsche Bank and Denton Wilde Sapte of UK
and Hogan & Hartson, the same advisors to the
FNM government during the first attempt at pri-
In March, 2003 the PLP government
announced that three bidders were short-listed,
namely: BahamaTel, TWTB and Blue Detecon.
Eventually BahamaTel was announced as the
preferred bidder but negotiations with that group
In March of 2005, following upon a number of
internal reorganising exercises at the company in
an effort to pursue privatization, a new steering
committee began negotiations with a company by
the name of Bluewater.
The company submitted its first offer of between
$200 million and $225 million for a 49 per cent
stake in BTC with full management control in
The deal was not completed before the 2007
Following the election, it fell once again to an
FNM administration to continue what began 10
years before. The party's election manifesto said:
"We will complete the privatization of BTC."
In March, 2008, the FNM government appoint-
ed a working privatization committee headed by T
The committee members also included: Julian
Francis, a former Central Bank governor and well
regarded senior banker and businessman in the pri-
vate sector; David Davis, Permanent Secretary in
the Office of the Prime Minister; Simon Wilson,
director of economics in the Ministry of Finance;
Tellis Symonette, Sr VP for the Family Islands

sation committee about the possibility of formal-
ly entering the process.
On March 15, 2010, the committee agreed to
allow CWC to commence preliminary due dili-
gence. They signed the appropriate procedural
documentation, paid the entry fee, and provided all
the requested information.
In the week commencing April 11, 2010,
CWC commenced their due diligence. In that
week they also took part in an introductory meet-
ing with the union leaders'of BTC.
MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING DETAILS
GOVERNMENT signed a non-
binding Memorandum of Under-
standing with Cable and Wireless
on December 2,2010. Some of the
details of the MOU are as follows:
The sale of 51 per cent of the
issued shares of BTC to Cable and
A purchase price of $210 mil-
lion payable in full on completion
of the transaction. Cable and Wire-
less also will be responsible for
paying the stamp duties up to a
maximum of $7 million payable in
connection with the transaction.
BTC, at the date of sale, will
have a projected net cash value of
$15 million. Net cash includes cash
less financial debt. If there is more
than $15 million net cash in BTC's
balance sheet at completion, CWC
will receive the excess cash. This
excludes certain funds that are
kept in a trust, as BTC is partially
self-insured against catastrophic
The* $210 million purchase
price is based on certain assump-
tions as.to the implementation cost
of the workforce restructuring.
Restructuring of BTC's work-
force will be undertaken as soon as
practicable following completion
of the deal, on a purely voluntary
basis. The voluntary workforce
restructuring will be concluded by
the first anniversary of the deal.
Cable and Wireless has under-
taken to prepare a business plan in
relation to the company to cover
the five year period following the
Government agreed to
amend the Communications Act
and the Sector Policy to the
effect that no external process,
to the extent controlled (directly
or indirectly) by the Govern-
ment, for granting a second cel-
lular licence could be launched
prior to the third anniversary of
Completion; and that any third
cellular licence would not be
issued prior to the fifth anniver-
sary of Completion.
The intent of the parties that
BTC becomes a major part of
CWC's overall regional opera-
tions and strategy, rather than an
appendage of CWC's existing
regional operations, that BTC
operates in a manner so as to
improve and expand upon the
existing communications services
in The Bahamas, that there is
substantial Bahamian participa-
tion in the management of BTC,
and that Cable & Wireless
affords Bahamians meaningful
opportunities to work within its
regional operations, are all pro-
vided for in the Memorandum.

New pension plan
will be put in place
after sale of BTC
PRIME MINISTER Hubert Ingraham speaks in the House yesterday.
A NEW pension plan will be
put in place for persons entering
employment with BTC after the
sale of the company to Cable and
Wireless, Prime Minister Ingra-
ham announced yesterday.
Mr Ingraham made the
announcement in the House of
Assembly while tabling a num-
ber of documents relative to the
sale of BTC.
"A structure known as the
Legacy Contribution Arrange-
ment will be put in place. A sep-
arate Feeder Trust will be estab-
lished and the government will
put $39 million into the Feeder
Trust. The Pension Plan's docu-
ments will be changed as neces-
sary to facilitate the Legacy Con-
tribution Agreement," Prime
Minister Ingraham said.
"Immediately after the sale, the
actuary of the Pension Plan will
calculate the current level of
under-funding . and then the
feeder trust will pay whatever is
required to level up to balance,"
Mr Ingraham also noted that
as long as the feeder trust
remains in existence and is fund-
ed by the government, the gov-
ernment has veto rights in rela-
tion to a number of areas, includ-
ing the granting of salary increas-
es over three per cent, early
retirement consents, amending
,the terms of industrial agree-
ments,' the investment policy of
the pension plan, alterations to
the rules, the identity of the pen-
sion trustee and the substitution
of another employer in the place
"BTC may make any decision
in respect of salary increases over
three per cent, consent to early
retirements; or change the terms
of early retirement or redundan-
cies; without reference to gov-
ernment, provided that it agrees
to reimburse the Pension Plan in
respect of any costs arising from
those decisions," Mr Ingraham
He also noted that both BTC
and the government may consid-
er exiting the arrangement on the
occurrence of "specific triggers"
and both will need to.give con-
sent to and agree to any exit
terms from the Legacy Contri-

Island estate named Home of the Year
TILLOO Pond, an enchanting island estate
in the Abacos, has been named Home of the
Year in its price category by a world class lux-
ury real estate magazine.
The 11-acre oceanfront estate was short-
listed by the staff of Unique Homes and then
opened to online voting.
The property is listed exclusively by Cold-
well Banker Lightbourn Realty.
Unique Homes opened its 40th year by
selecting 40 favourite listings from 1,000 pages
of 2010 listings for a special "Homes of the
Year" section, according to Mark Moffa, man-
aging editor of the magazine.
Unique Homes website visitors were asked
to vote for their favourites. Tilloo Pond beat
Sother nine finalists in its price category.
The sea-to-sea property has its own beach,
protected private dock and a day dock on the
sea of Abaco. The uniquely designed 5,400
square foot home has a beautiful vaulted ceil-
ing fashioned from carved, wooden beams. It
has exquisite furnishings and high end finish
work, including granite countertops, traver-
tine tile and exotic hardwood.
"I'm not surprised Tilloo Pond won the
award," said listing agent Mailin Sands.
"As soon as it was nominated, I researched
the other properties and none had anything
close to the beauty of the Abaco Cays, coupled
with the incredible craftsmanship and high
quality finishes that this property has. CEOs
have stayed on the property and celebrities
have visited. It's the perfect combination of pri-
vacy and luxury in the most beautiful island
setting," she said.

San Salvador: an
island of monuments
By LARRY SMITH
San Salvador This is an
island of monuments,
although none are particu-
larly grandiose and some are
positively insignificant and
difficult to find. There are at
least five markers commem-
orating the landfall of
Columbus, for example.
The locals don't pay much
attention to them, but the 400
visitors who stay at Club Med
each week certainly do. This
is the most historic place in
the Bahamas because it was
the site of that momentous
first encounter between the
Old and New Worlds in 1492.
In fact, it was Tough Call
who broke the story that con-
firmed San Salvador as the
landfall island in 1983 via
the Reuters and Inter Press
Service news wires. That's
when archaeologist Charles
Hoffman excavated Spanish
trade goods dated to the con-
tact period at the very site of
the Lucayan village adjacent
to the Long Bay beach where
Columbus was believed to
have come ashore.
After the Spanish carried
off the unfortunate Lucayans
to slavery in Hispaniola, San
Salvador was deserted until
some 1,000 whites and 7,000
blacks arrived in the
Bahamas, fleeing the Ameri-
can Revolution, to establish
plantations on 14 previously

built three bases on San Sal-

and a submarine tracking sta-

left in the 1970s these facili-
ties were repurposed as a
school, an academic research
station and, eventually, as the
Club Med resort.
By the 1980s.this little

and set to become a ruin, but

the 1992 celebrations, which
attracted worldwide atten-
Dr Roberto Savio, an Ital-
ian second home resident,
was instrumental in this
exhibits from Europe and
enlisting the support of inter-
national agencies and per-
sonalities on behalf of the
Bahamas. Among the contri-
butions Savio arranged was
a ceramic tile mural created
by a leading Italian artist
named Bruno Elise. It was
donated by an Italian state
company, and installed on an
exterior wall of the museum,
where it remains today.
After the quincentennial
celebrations, the old gaol was
left to deteriorate again, and
in 2002 it was closed for
repairs. At that time it was
decided to move the muse- ,
um to larger premises at the
old primary school nearby.
When the Antiquities
Monuments &. Museums
Corporation was created in
1999, it assumed responsibil-
ity for the museum, but nev-
er got around to repairing the
old gaol. So when hurricanes
struck the island in 2004, and
the old primary school had
to be re-occupied by stu-
dents, the museum artifacts
were put into storage, and
the much-photographed old
gaol in the historic town cen-
tre was simply abandoned.
On my visit, the wood-
work was rotting, windows*
were broken, plaster walls
were cracking, doors were
hanging off their hinges and
there was trash in and around
the building. The only'
remaining artifact is the

But the building is still

by a Ministry of Works engi-
neer found that remedial

cost of about $3,000, followed
by a full restoration involving
replacement of the roof,

the local community and as

Meanwhile, the ceramic

facing the sea has .suffered
irreversible damage. So last
year Dr Savio undertook to
have the mural replaced and
make the remedial repairs
that the building needed. He
also offered to raise funds for
a full restoration of the build-
ing. In January he brought

most historic island in the
Bahamas, despite private

On the flight to and from
San Salvador recently I spent
time reviewing a copy of the
1982 publication, A Dictio-
nary of Bahamian English.
Written by two former Col-
lege of the 1ahamas lecturers
(John Holm and Allison
Shilling, both British :expa-
triates now at American uni-
versities), it has been
described as a record of all
that is Bahamian in English.
This book offers more
than 5,000 entries for words
and expressions used in the
Bahamas that are not gener-
ally found in current standard
English. Information on
Bahamian creole is not quite
as rare as you might think.
A COB web page on English
language resources, for
example, lists some two
dozen articles, dissertations
and studies by Bahamian and
foreign scholars on this sub-
The range of linguistic tra-
ditions brought to the
Bahamas during the Euro-
pean settlement includes
Bermudian English, British
cockney, Scots English and
early African American, pro-
ducing a great grammatical
diversity. South Carolina was
a major point of origin for
white and black loyalists,
which makes it likely that an
early form of Gullah (an
American creole) was taken
to the Bahamas with them.
Creole is the term for a
language that resulted from
"the collision of languages
and cultures under the social
conditions of slavery", Holm
says, like creole French in
Haiti. Most often, the vocab-
ulary comes from the domi-
nant group and the grammar
from the subordinate group.
In a related study com-
paring 2500 Bahamian
expressions not used in con-
temporary standard British,
Holm assigned 43 per cent to
Scotland or the North Coun-
try, with another 25 per cent
from Ireland or the West
Country. Bahamian whites
speak a non-standard dialect
similar to that spoken on the
North Carolina outer banks,
while the vernacular of most
native blacks is Bahamian
The entries in this dictio-
nary range from the mildly
amusing (as in "take off them
wet clothes afore you catch
ammonia"), to the complex
and historic. Andros, for
example, is the largest island
in the Bahamas, but the ear-
liest names for it were Isla
Santa (on a 1501 map), Aba-
coa (on a 1523 map) and
Cabacos (on a 1529 map).
The-name "Andros" seems
to have been first used in a
1731 reference by naturalist
Mark Catesby to the "Islands
of Andros and Ilathera", and
on a 1771 map as "Andres".
One theory about the ori-
gin of the name is that in the
1780s, when the British ceded
the island of San Andres on
the Mosquito Coast of,Cen-
tral Ameriga to Spain, most
of the inhabitants moved to
the largest island in the
Bahamas. Another theory is
that the island was named
after Sir Edmund Andros, a
commander of British forces
in the Caribbean during the

ty" actually has a Scottish ori-
gin. It meant "wealthy" but
was transformed in US
southern dialect into "uppi-

A long entry explains the
various cultural terms related
to conch, the',shellfish. And
another describes the alter-
nate meaning of conch as
an early nickname for
Bahamians generally. In 1804
Daniel McKinnon observed
that prior to the loyalist
migration visitors called all
Bahamians conchs, but in
more recent usage, the term
has come to mean white
Bahamians. The generally
derogatory. term "conchy
joe'" refers tp a Bahamian
white or near-white. Accord-
ing to one reference cited,
"conchy joes are by no means
white, they are of a hard-red

Africa, the reference says.
The late Dr Cleveland Eneas
reported that nangos lived in
Bain Town. They were also
said to live in Fox Hill, and
the term became generalised
to include all liberated
Africans. Nango is also an
abusive term for a low-class,
loud-mouth black Bahamian.

to conclude that he was a flight

In turn, Assange's lawyers
and a defense witness accused
prosecutors in Sweden of irreg-
ularities ,and illegalities in the
way they built their case. Hurtig
said an initial prosecutor "acted
against the laws of confiden-
tiality, telling one of our tabloid
newspapers that Julian was sus- -
pected of rape." He said prose-
cutors and police had leaked
details of the case to the media.
Assange's lawyers argue that
the global publicity around the
case and the Swedish custom
of hearing rape cases behind
closed doors mean he would
not get a fair trial. His attor-
ney, Geoffrey Robertson, said
closed-door hearings would be
"a flagrant denial of justice."

Swedish prosecutors as unrea-

CANCELLED VISIT: In this file photo of Aug. 6, 2008, U.S. President George W. Bush, first lady Laura Bush and daughter Barbara Bush arrive at military base in Bangkok. For-
mer President George W. Bush's planned visit to Switzerland has been cancelled because of security concerns.
A visit former U.S. President George W. Bush
planned to make to Switzerland next week has been
canceled because of security concerns, after left-wing
groups called for mass protests and rights activists pro-
posed legal action against him for allegedly ordering the
torture of terrorism suspects.
Bush's spokesman David Sherzer said the two-term
president was informed Friday by the United Israel
Appeal that his Feb. 12 dinner speech in Geneva had
been called off. "We regret that the speech has been
canceled," Sherzer told The Associated Press in an e-
mail Saturday. "President Bush was looking forward to
speaking about freedom and offering reflections from
his time in office."
Saturday's edition of Swiss daily Tribune de Geneve
qudted'the Jewish charity's lawyer, Robert Equey, as
saying the visit was canceled because of the risk that
protests by left-wing groups could result in violence.
"The calls to demonstrate were sliding into danger-
ous terrain," Equey told the newspaper. "The orga-
nizers claimed to be ableto maintain order, but warned
they could not be held responsible for any outbursts."
Protest organizers had called for participants to each
bring a shoe to the rally outside the lakeside Hotel
Wilson named after Bush's predecessor Woodrow
Wilson where the dinner was to be held. The shoe
was meant to recall the moment an Iraqi journalist
threw his footwear at Bush during a news conference in
Baghdad in 2008.
Equey told Tribune de Geneve that attempts by,
human rights groups to submit legal complaints against
Bush to Swiss prosecutors hadn't played a part in the
decision to cancel the visit.
Sherzer, Bush's spokesman, declined to comment
on.the reasons for the cancellation,
' Several human rights groups, including Amnesty
International and the New York-based Center for
Constitutional Rights, had planned to ask Swiss pros-
ecutors to open a criminal investigation against Bush
over the admission that he personally authorized the
waterboarding of terrorism suspects.
"Whatever Bush or his hosts say, we have no doubt
he canceled his trip to avoid our case," the Center for
Constitutional Rights and others said in a statement.
Legal experts say it is unlikely Swiss prosecutors
would have had the time to examine any criminal com-
plaint against Bush and take action, such as requesting
him to respond to the allegations, before he left
Furthermore, an initial assessment by the Swiss Jus-
tice Ministry concluded that Bush would have enjoyed
immunity from prosecution for any actions taken while
in office, ministry spokesman Folco Galli told the AP.
Widney Brown, Amnesty's senior director of inter-
national law and policy, said the group would continue
to press for Bush's prosecution the next time the former
president travels to a country that has committed to,
prosecuting war crimes and where he could expect a
fair trial. Sherzer said Bush has made several trips-
outside of the United States since leaving office two
years ago, including to South Korea, China, Japan,
Brazil, Canada, and the Middle East.
Rumsfeld reveals pre-war Iraq strike plan
Former Pentagon chief Don-
ald H. Rumsfeld reveals in his
new book that he urged a U.S.
military strike on a suspected
chemical weapons site in north-
ern Iraq in 2003, and' that he
wanted the attack timed to
coincide with then Secretary of
State Colin Powell's address to
the U.N, Security Council mak-
ing the case for war.
In his memoir, "Known and
Unknown," Rumsfeld wrote
that the Joint Chiefs supported
a strike, based on what Rums-
feld called extensive but not
conclusive CIA evidence that
the site housed an underground
facility for testing chemical
weapons. He called it a "fairly
sizeable terrorist operation."
The prewar attack never hap-
pened, although the site was
struck in the opening days of
the war that President George
W. Bush launched in March
2003, about six weeks after
Powell's U.N. speech. The U.S.
never found substantial evi-
dence of an active Iraqi pro-
gram to produce weapons of
mass destruction, but Rumsfeld
believed that the site near the
Iranian border presented the
best chance to prove they exist-
ed before the war began.
"For whatever reason, the
administration never made
public these facts about an
.active. WMD production facili-
ty run by terrorists in Iraq,"

The Rumsfeld memoir cov-
ers the full span of his 78 years,
from growing up in a small
town outside Chicago, his Navy
days, his years in Congress, a
string of staff jobs in the Nixon

defense secretary under Presi-

defense secretary; he also is the
youngest to have held the job
and the oldest.
To promote and expand on
the book, Rumsfeld established
a web site, www.rumsfeld.com
that contains a select group of
his official papers. Some
required declassification at his
request. Rumsfeld said he
chose documents that are "of
particular historical interest" or
are related to the events that
he describes in the book. With-
out knowing the full contents
of the papers it is impossible to
know whether he included only
documents that support his ver-
sion of events or omitted unflat-

will be declassified, and

said. On his web site he wrote
that deciding to release certain
papers was difficult.
"These documents were not
designed with an eye to history
as part of an authoritative
archive," he wrote. He said he
chose to release them "warts
and all," for readers to draw
their own conclusions.
Some early reviews of what
Rumsfeld called "my slice of
history" have cast it as a score-
settling exercise, a revenge
memoir. That, he sniffed, comes
from "people who haven't read

versies from the Iraq war, but
he also writes about the peri-

performance was lacking, but
he denied that the administra-
tion was distracted by the war
in Iraq. Taking a jab at allies,\
Rumsfeld wrote that Britain,
* Italy, Germany and other coun-
tries that agreed in the early
years of the war to take the lead
on certain nonmilitary tasks -
such as, training the Afghan
police and creating a civil jus-
tice system found their tasks
more difficult .than they had
"And an awful lot of that
didn't get done," he said.
Asked his view of the Oba-
ma administration's decision to
begin withdrawing troops in
2011 and to complete the pull-
out by 2014, Rumsfeld said he
saw grounds for worry but he
was not precise about his rea-
sons. He said the U.S. approach
could set- in motion forces
"potentially adverse to the gov-
ernment of Afghanistan."
It was the Iraq war that led to
Rumsfeld's demise at the Pen-
tagon; he resigned in November
2006 as Democrats regained
control of the Congress and the
outlook for'success in Iraq
appeared increasingly grim.
Robert Gates took over at the
Pentagon and Bush sent a surge
of combat forces to Baghdad,
setting the stage for an eventu-
al turnaround that now has U.S.
forces poised to leave Iraq by
year's end. In the interview,
Rumsfeld defended the Bush
decision in 2008 to agree to
have all forces out this year.
"The government of Iraq is
eventually going to have work
with the Iraqi people and fash-
ion various accommodations so
that they can go forward and
govern the country," Rumsfeld
said. "And being aimed in that
direction starts them along that
road, and that's basically a good

come from pro-democracy ele-
ments, Boucek said. Others
have been stirred by Islamic
fundamentalist and secession-
ist groups already arrayed
against Saleh's government.
In a sign of the mounting
alarm about Yemen's role as a
terrorist staging area, President
Barack Obama told Saleh on
the phone this past week about
the need for "forceful action"
against the al-Qaida affiliate.
Obama did praise "the signifi-
cant reform measures" that
Saleh ordered to defuse the
Obama also took the unusu-
al step of publicly chiding Saleh
for releasing Abd-Ilah al-Shai, a
sympathizer of the al-Qaida
group who had been sentenced
to five years for his ties with it.
Al-Shai had met in 2009 with
Anwar al-Awlaki, 'a fugitive
militant cleric who is suspected
by American authorities of
involvement in the Christmas
Day plot that year to bomb a
Detroit-bound jet and the
October 2010 scheme to send
mail bombs on planes from
Yemen to the U.S.
. Saleh, who has kept power
despite battling three separate
insurrections, often has to wire-
walk between U.S. officials
pressing for more leeway to
take the battle against al-Qaida
and powerful Yemeni tribes
suspicious of his dealings with
the Americans. Diplomatic
cables released this year by
WikiLeaks described the gap
between Saleh's public postur-
ing and private utterances -
telling top U.S. counterterror
adviser John Brennan at one
point that he would pretend
that a series of U.S. airstrikes
had been carried out by
"Saleh's good at dancing in
the snake pit," said Juan
Zarate, a former top Bush
official who is now with the
Center for Strategic and Inter-
national Studies. "The unrest
he's dealing with now poses
some dangers, but he's pretty
adept at getting out of trouble."
Egypt once had to contend:
with its own breed of hardcore
Islamic militants. But three
decades of brutal repression by
' the country's security services
- most recently led by new
Vice President Omar Suleiman
largely eliminated them as
a threat. The secretive Egyptian
Islamic Jihad organization has
been headed by al-Qaida's sec-
ond-in-command, Ayman al-,
Zawahri since 1991, but Egypt's
secret police crushed the group,
expelling al-Zawahri and
imprisoning its members.
In a classified diplomatic
cable written on April 13, 2009,
the U.S. ambassador to Egypt,
Margaret Scobey, wrote that
Cairo's "active opposition to
Islamist terrorism and effective
intelligence and security ser-
vices makes Egypt an unattrac-
tive safe haven for terror
groups, and there is no evi-
dence to suggest there are any
active foreign terrorist groups
in the country."
During the uprising last
week, there were numerous
reports that some Islamic Jihad
inmates were among hundreds
let out during a mass jailbreak.
Egyptian authorities said they
rounded up many of those who
escaped, but it was: not clear
whether all of them were back
in custody. "As long as the mil-
itary and security apparatus is
in control, I still don't see
Egyptian militants as a real
threat," .Cressey said.
The greater concern in
Egypt, Zarate said, is tending to
the strong ties between Amer-
ican and Egyptian counterter-
rorism officials that both sides
cultivated over the past three
decades. "'U.S. officials clearly '
want to shore up their relations
with the security services to
make sure our counterterror-
ism relations survive the
changes," Zarate said. "They
need to be prepared to tailor
their relations as the. structure
changes. If Suleiman takes con-
trol, that means there are new
top security people we need to
Some U.S. leaders worry that
thq fundamentalist Islamic
Muslim Brotherhood long
ago locked out of power in
Egypt will wield power in a
freer, decentralized government
that might lead to a weakened
stance against al-Qaida and
other terror groups.
"My concern is their ties to
terror groups and their adher-
ence to (Islamic) Shariah law,"
Republican Sen. John McCain
said last week. "Am I worried
about the result that the Mus-
lim Brotherhood might gain
power? Yeah, I'm scared to
death. But the option of hold-
ing off on democracy is not an
Counterterrorism experts say
the Muslim Brotherhood and
al-Qaida are hardly joined at
the hip. The groups have been
foes for years, quarreling over
ideological and tactical differ-
ences often over the Broth-
erhood's willingness to work
within political systems instead
of toppling them violently.
"They just don't like each oth-
er," Cressey said. "Al-Qaida
sees itself as more militant, and
they believe the Brotherhood
isn't willing to take on the
Egyptian security services."
Egypt's toughest counterter-
rorism challenge ahead may
come as U.S. officials are forced
.to work with a new government
that includes the Muslim Broth-
erhood, seeking common
ground against terrorist ene-
mies even if the Islamic faction
tries to distance Egypt from its
neighbor, Israel. American
political leaders have long fused
counterterror aims with sup-
port for Israel, and contending
with an altered Arab world
landscape- with rising Islamic
factions could force hard choic-
es. "We'll have to struggle with
this politically, especially as we
go into an election year," said
Phillip Mudd, a former CIA
and FBI official who was
deputy director of the CIA's
Counterterrorist Center and
now is a senior adviser with
Oxford Analytica, a consulting
firm. "The tension is between
the need to work. with these
groups to continue the fight
against (al-Qaida) and other
extreme elements and the pos-
sibility that they may go against
our wishes when it comes to
Israel. Europe is less political
and more realistic when it
comes to that tension but it may
be more of a problem here."
Despite the likely tensions
looming, Mudd and some other
terrorism experts say the tur-
bulence in Cairo, Sana'a and
elsewhere in the Mideast and
North Africa raises hopes that
al-Qaida's momentum may be
overtaken by democratic
impulses. "Al-Qaida sees them-
selves as revolutionaries,"
Mudd said. "But the rise of the
pro-democracy protests on the
Arab street might take the air
out of the balloon in terms of
their recruiting. It siphons off
their youth recruits."
kills 1; gunmen
target local chief
A suicide bomber killed one
person and wounded five oth-
ers in southern Afghanistan's
largest city of Kandahar on
Monday, hours after attackers
gunned down a local govern-
ment chief in the country's
volatile eastern borderlands.
The Taliban claimed respon-
sibility for both attacks.
A homemade bomb also
claimed the life of a NATO ser-
vice member in a separate
attack in the country's south,
the sixth coalition member
killed this month. NATO didn't
disclose the person's nationali-
ty or location of the blast.
The Kandahar suicide
bomber detonated explosives
inside the city's customs house
compound during a visit by
NATO forces, police chief
Khan Mohammad Mujahid
said. He said the person killed
was an Afghan interpreter.
The government facility is
used by businesspeople and
truck drivers to clear customs
paperwork on imported goods.
Visitors typically undergo vehi-
cle inspections and pat-downs
to enter, raising questions about
the adequacy of security pro-
cedures there and whether the
bomber knew international
troops would be nearby.
Kandahar is located in the
Taliban's traditional southern
stronghold. It has been the site
of several recent attacks, includ-
ing a car bombing Friday that
apparently targeted the city's
chief of police.
Earlier in the day, gunmen
killed the acting chief of the
eastern Khost province's Bak
district on his way to work. The
official, identified as Sayed
Mohammad, was shot by four
men wearing Afghan national
army uniforms as, he drove to
the office at about 9 a.m.,
provincial officials said.
Like Kandahar, Khost has
witnessed numerous insurgent
strikes, including a high-profile
suicide bombing at a remote
CIA outpost in late 2009. It is
located along the mountainous
border region with Pakistan
where the Haqqani network, a
group with ties to the Taliban
and al-Qaida, is known to oper-
ate. Taliban spokesman Zabi-
hullah Mujahid said the district
chief was targeted because of
his collaboration.with foreign
troops. U.S. and NATO cbm-
manders insist they are making
progress in the fight against the
Taliban and its allies. NATO
said it and Afghan security
forces detained several sus-
pected insurgents during a raid
Sunday targeting a Haqqani
.network leader responsible for-
coordinating bombings in
NATO also announced a
child was accidentally killed
during an air strike targeting
insurgent operations in the
southern Helmand province.
U.S. Army Col. Patrick Hynes
of the NATO Afghan mission's
joint command called the acci-
dent "deeply regrettable."
The U.S. hopes to solidify
gains against insurgents as it
prepares to begin drawing
down forces in July. NATO
aims to hand over responsibili-
ty for Afghanistan's security to
local forces and pull all its
troops out by 2014.
A New York University
report released Monday by
researchers based in Kandahar
argues that the Taliban's older
leadership is finding it increas-
ingly difficult to control insur-
gency efforts as their ranks thin
and their authority wanes.
The report says al-Qaida and
the Taliban remain separate
groups with distinct objectives
despite their shared opposition
to U.S.-led forces in the region.
But as the Taliban chain of
command weakens, they say
lower-level leaders are becom-
:ing more financially indepen-
dent and open to manipulation

BOARDROOM DISCUSSION: BHA President Stuart Bowe leads a
boardroom discussion with Junior Hotelier students from Oakes
Field Primary School.
It is never too early to begin to shape young minds about
the many career and business opportunities in the world's
largest industry tourism, officials from the Bahamas Hotel
Association (BHA) believe.
As part of its activities to improve the quality of the
industry's current and future workforce, two years ago
BHA created the Junior Hotelier Programme, which is now
reaching more thaA 200 students annually.
Recently, some 30 students from the Oakes Field Prima-
ry School, led by teacher Joan Knowles-Turnquest, met in
the BHA Boardroom with
the organisation's presi-
dent, Stuart Bowe to dis-
cuss the industry; its impor- "I came away

tunities and what it takes with the students
to succeed in the industry.
"You already have many most impressed
of the.tools you need to with their knowl-
succeed in our industry, edge of our busi-
you just need to know how
to use them," said Mr ness and feeling
Bowe, as he and the stu- confident about
dents talked about some of both their future
the more than 1,000 differ- and our industry's
ent tourism job and career
options available today in future.
"I came away from the'
meeting with the students Stuart Bowe
most impressed with their -
knowledge of our business
and feeling confident about both their future and our indus-
try's future," said Mr Bowe, who encouraged all young
Bahamians to set their sights high and strive to do their
best in school, in order to be prepared to seize the many
tourism sector opportunities.
BHA's Junior Hotelier, Program is open to students in
grades four to six and grade 12, who are selected based on
either results from an interest inventory combined with
Holland's RIASEC codes, or by recommendations from
The program in now offered in Oakes Field, Centreville
& Stephen Dillet Primary Schools, and Anatol Rogers High
School. Its success requires an in-school partner who is will-
ing to facilitate the program with BHA's workforce devel-
The objectives of the 10-week programme are to: explore
careers; meet with industry professionals to learn about
the industry; become aware of industry and guests' needs
and expectations; and link classroom learning and experi-
eniices to the workplace.
Students meet once a week with -industry professionals and
representatives from hotels, the BHA, the Ministry of
Tourism and Aviation, and the College of the Bahamas'
They also participate in a field trip to Dolphin Encounters,
Ardastra Gardens or the Bahamas National Trust, and
partner with a hotel for a shadow experience and tour of the

CWC targets CWC plans 'material improvement' at BTC

Minister Hubert Ingraham,
which also outlined the compa-
ny's plan to expand BTC's
"retail footprint" from 26 to 56
locations via "a mix of flagship,
retail and store-in-store" loca-
Stating that the Family
Islands and Bahamian small
and medium-size enterprises
would "especially benefit from
this expansion"',', CWC added
that top-up locations would
increase to more than 5,000,
with "improved methods of
And, outlining the rationale
for BTC's privatization, CWC
said: "BTC's overall revenue is
projected to decline at 1 per
cent per annum over five years,
driven mainly by the reduction
in roaming rates, voice services
(price reduction), counteract-
ed by growth in the take-up of
mobile data, enterprise and car-
rier and fixed broadband, TV
and Voice over Internet Pro-
"Absent the rapid deploy-
ment of new, largely data-based
services which CWC is able to
deliver, the projected decline
would be significantly greater,
and BTC would be unprepared
for competition in three years."
And the prospective new
majority owner added:
"Through our retail stores roll-
out and TopUp distribution
enhancement, new dealer
opportunities will become avail-
able to Bahamians, especially
in the Family Islands. We will
support current TopUp dealers
with marketing funds and
improve their margins with
technology advancements (such
as eTopUp and handset Top-
Addressing the projected
business performance of BTC,
CWC projected that the staff
restructuring details of which
still have to be worked out -
would fall by 20 per cent over
the five years to 2015, falling
from almost $200 million at pre-
sent to around $160 million.
Pledging that "significant
capital expenditure" would be
invested in information tech-
nology, cellular and broadband
networks over the next five
years, CWC promised: "We
want to build BTC to a world
class operator offering broadest
coverage, most advanced fixed,
mobile and new era of com-
munications services at more
competitive prices, benefiting
the Bahamian people and econ-
Getting there, though, will
not necessarily be easy. CWC
acknowledged that Caribbean
benchmarks and experience
elsewhere showed that cellular
liberalisation in 2014 would see
BTC's market share in that cat-
egory drop by 30-40 per cent,
while average revenue per unit
(ARPU) in the fixed-landline
business "could be as great as
40 per cent four to five years
And, while roaming rates
were likely to fall after the
market was liberalised, CWC
said opportunities abounded,
with new operators, mobile
data, and smart phone growth
increasing market size by up to
10 per cent.
And, with the growth in data
services, ARPU growth in this
segment, aided by the intro-
duction of 3G/4G and smart-
phone technology was "likely
to increase by as much as 80-90
"Roaming data usage per vis-
itor is likely to grow by 130-150
per cent within the next five
years," added CWC.
On cellular, CWC plans to
roll-out 3G/4G technology and
increase coverage, while
launching "value. added ser-
vices" such as MMS, pre-paid
Blackberry, mobile TV and
electronic banking from the
phone. Tariff rebalancing is
intended to combat price ero-
sion in BTC's international
calls, together with the bundling
of these products with national
voice products. CWC also plans
to improve BTC's broadband
Internet speed to 8 Megabytes
"minimum" and launch a pay
TV service, enabling it to go
head-to-head with Cable
On the business front, CWC
aims to use BTC's existing
undersea fibre optic cables to
"drive carrier capacity sales" in
terms of traffic to Cuba, Haiti
and elsewhere. The Bahamas, it
added, would be positioned as a
"pivotal player" in terms of US
connectivity, with high speed
data networks to remote offices
"allowing businesses to improve
productivity and reduce costs".

Adding that Cable & Wire-
less Communications (CWC),
the prospective acquirer of a
51 per cent BTC stake, and its
Caribbean affiliate, LIME,
could buy equipment 20-30 per
cent cheaper than BTC through
their collective purchasing pow-
er, Hubert Ingraharm told the
House of Assembly that while
voluntary disengagement of a
.number of BTC employees
should take place "as soon as
practicable", 99 per cent of
BTC management staff will
remain Bahamian citizens.
There will be "substantial
Bahamian participation in the
management" of BTC under
CWC, which yesterday signed
the legal documents necessary
to facilitate its $210 million
acquisition of 51 per cent of
BTC. Meanwhile, Bahamians
will be afforded "meaningful
opportunities to work within
(CWC's) regional operations,"
said Prime Minister Hubert
"Cable & Wireless has fully
accepted our desire that BTC
willtremain, first- and foremost,
a Bahamian business .- focused
on the Bahamian communi-
ty. Based on their experiences
of the past, they know it needs
to be this to succeed," Mr
Ingraham told parliament.
BTC, under CWC, will also
become a major part of the
overall regional operations and
strategy of the CWC Group in
the Caribbean, rather than
merely an appendage to its oth-
er operations in the region, he
said. A "consumer call centre"
serving both CWC's Bahami-
an and other Caribbean cus-
tomers will be set up in the
Bahamas, noted Mr Ingraham.
The Prime Minister made
these comments as he provided
the most extensive explanation
yet for the Government's deci-
sion to choose CWC as a strate-
gic partner for BTC, and move
ahead with the company's pri-
vatisation despite opposition
from unions representing BTC
workers, the PLP and others.
He said the Government was
confident CWC, having com-
peted in liberalised telecom-
munications markets globally
and in 13 countries in the
Caribbean, is well placed to
prepare BTC for "fierce com-
petition" that will ensue with
full liberalisation of the cellular
If it were not prepared in
such a way, with a strategic
partner who, like CWC, can
provided economies of scale
and alliances, BTC would "like-
ly not survive", he added, with
its high profits having been
derived from the lack of com-
petition it has so far faced.
The Prime Minister said
CWC/LIME has been able to
"deliver economic growth in
the countries where it operates,
and led the introduction of new
technology", with emphasis on
"value for money."
"We expect consumers and
businesses in the Bahamas to
be pleased with a new array of
products and services that
CWC will introduce; that is to
say, more services for less cost
We expect improved service,
quality of signals, coverage and
a reduction in the incidence of
dropped calls," said the Prime
Minister. Cable and Wireless

ness plan, which was tabled in

Under the Memorandum of
Understanding signed between
the Government and CWC,
government will retain veto
power over certain decisions
relating to BTC, so long as it
holds 15 per cent of the com-
pany's issued share capital.
These include changes in own-
ership of the conipany's share
capital, any "material" acqui-'
sitions and borrowings over a
certain size. The Prime Minister
also revealed that the agree-
ment between CWC and the
Government provides for a
restriction on dividends for the
first two financial years follow-
ing completion of the sale.
'No more than 60 per cent
of BTC's profits will be distrib-
uted to the shareholders, which
of course includes Govern-
ment. This is important as BTC
needs to have a strong balance
sheet leading into competition,"
said Mr Ingraham.

was pleased that chairman of the Privatisation Com-
mittee, T Baswell Donaldson, was able to "persuade
Cable and Wireless to step up to the plate (in 2010,
after) the two exercises undertaken in terms of bidding
resulted in unacceptable bids".
In a statement to the media after Mr Ingraham
spoke, Mr Shaw emphasised that in all countries it
operates, CWC seeks to deliver its services in a way
"totally in tune with the local culture".
However, he added that the Government has "cho-
sen us to help with the development of the industry
here", and said this will mean change, as it "puts the
customer at the heart of BTC."
Among those changes, in addition to completing
the network upgrade currently underway so new ser-
vices can be delivered "in this world of data that we are
now in", CWC, through BTC, plans to "introduce new
innovation and new products, whether that's TV, music
. or mobile commerce or faster broadband".
Mr Shaw said "prices are going to be very important"
as CWC seeks to "get off to a good start" in its first year
in charge, proving to customers that "things are going
to be different" at a privatised BTC.
"The tariff regime is pretty complicated, and so we
will look to simplify how the tariff structure works,
whether that's within islands, between islands, weekend,
peak and off-peak. So I think prices need to come
down and the simplicity of the tariff structure needs to
improve for the consumer," he said.
CWC will seek to expand the "platforms that we
provide for customers to access BTC", with this involv-

Mr Shaw. Meanwhile, a "more full suite of business ser-

Mr Shaw said BTC has already made "really good
strides in", will also be expanded upon in year one.
He said that as, or more important, than capital
investments in BTC in the first year, will be greater
focus being brought to bear on the branding and mar-
keting of the company.
The potential of a name change for the company
will be explored, and a determination made based on
input from customers, he added.
"I think the business needs more investment in the
brand, its marketing, its distribution footprint, So I
'think we'll be looking to go a bit more into that side of
things," said Mr Shaw, adding that he was optimistic
that "in a year's time both the consumers and the busi-
ness will look back and see a material improvement" in
the company and the service it provides.
Mr Shaw declined to go into any details about the
extent of downsizing that CWC will be targeting for
BTC, mentioning only that it has agreed with the Gov-
ernment that the staff separation will be "voluntary".
"We've got some initial views, which we've been
working with the BTC management on. We are keen
and anxious to talk to both the union leadership about
the details of the voluntary scheme, as well as our col-
leagues in BTC, and until we have done both of those
things it would be premature to go into too much more
detail," said Mr Shaw.

asked by this newspaper whether he planned to spin-off
Domino's Pizza to new owners if his acquisition bid proved
He explained to Tribune Business that Domino's Pizza would
"bring a lot more value" to a private company or group of
entrepreneurs, rather than being part of a larger public com-
pany, while his focus as City Markets' majority 78 per cent
owner was on the food retailing and grocery business.
"We've been around a little while and know what it is to lose
focus," Mr Finlayson said. "We're focused on the food, gro-
ceries business, and feel someone else will bring a lot more val-
ue to that franchise."
It is difficult to determine how big a percentage of AML
Foods' $65.955 million in sales for the nine months to end-
October 2010 that Domino's Pizza accounts for, the vast major-
ity of this sum likely coming from the core food business at
Solomon's SuperCentre and'Cost Right.
The pizza franchise also likely accounts for a relatively small
fraction of AML Foods' $904,000 in net income generated for
the first nine months of its financial year ending January 31,
2011. However, the strategy being advanced by AML Foods'
Board and current management is to expand the company's
franchise business, and it is currently in talks to bring another
such business to the Bahamas.
Gavin Watchorn, AML Foods' chief executive and presi-
dent, told Tribune Business last week: "We are in the initial dis-
cussion stages of bringing another franchise to the Bahamas.
We've made contact, are smiling across the dance floor, and that
will move ahead slowly but steadily."
Declining to name the potential franchise, other than to
confirm it was "definitely" a food brand, Mr Watchorn said it
was difficult to put a timeline on when the negotiations would
conclude, given the processes involved in dealing with major US
"We need a couple 'of months to talk to, them, anid have a
good idea of whether we will do it or not," Mr Watchorn said.
Meanwhile, Mr Finlayson yesterday told Tribune Business
that consolidation among the major players in the Bahamian
food retailing industry was "essential", explaining that the
proliferation of' neighbourhood food stores had fragmented
the $600 million per annum market and left the 'Big Five' with
around a 55 per cent combined share.",
,Headded that it was "'no secret" that he had been exploring
alternatives to an AML Foods acquisition/merger, having
'talked to both Phil's Food Services and Sandy Schaefer's Robin
Hood about consolidation possibilities.
S"I think it's essential for all of us in this market," Mr Fin-
layson said of consolidation. "If you take Phil's and Sandy's
operation, and our operation and SuperValue and AMlL, com-
bined it only comes to 55 per cent of the market, and that's get-
ting smaller and smaller every day.
"There has to be some consolidation among the Big Five to
move ahead. I don't think it's been a secret that we have been
in talks with Phil's. and also with Sandy .
"If you think about it, they are as bid as AML. Sandy did
about $26 million last:year before he did.the new store, and
Phil's did $35 million in food alone. That's $60 million, and
AML very roughly does $70 million in food.
"That's an alternative we've been taking a look at. It's clean-
er in the sense that there's no Domino's or heavy concentration
on the big ticket items, TVs and so forth."

Foreclosures raise US economic stress
The nation's economic stress
inched up in December because
higher foreclosures outweighed
lower unemployment, accord-
ing to The Associated Press'
Bankruptcy levels remained
largely unchanged from
November. But the depressed
housing market took a toll.
Foreclosure rates rose in 33
states, most sharply in Utah,
New Jersey, Nevada and Ari-
zona. Most analysts expect the
economy to gain momentum
this year, in part because of a
tax-cut package that lowers
workers' Social Security taxes
and puts more money in their
paychecks. But two straight
months of higher stress to end
2010 marked a setback after the
nation's economic-pain had
eased since the start of last year,
the AP Economic Stress Index
The AP's index calculates a
score from 1 to 100 based on
unemployment, foreclosure and
bankruptcy rates. A higher
. score signals more stress. Under
a rough rule of thumb, a coun-
ty is considered stressed when
its score exceeds 11.
The average county's score
in December was 10.4, up from
10.3 in November. Slightly
more than 40 percent of the
nation's 3,141 counties were
deemed stressed, up slightly
For all of 2010, economic
stress eased in every state but
five: Colorado, Florida, Geor-
gia, Nevada and Utah. Stress
fell most sharply in the Great
Lakes states and the Southern
states of Alabama, Mississippi
and Tennessee. Those states
have large manufacturing bases,
and the AP analysis showed
that stress dropped most in
counties with large proportions
of workers in manufacturing.
U.S. manufacturers are final-
ly adding jobs after years of
shrinking their payrolls. They
added 136,000 workers last
year, the first net increase since
1997. And in January, the man-
ufacturing sector added 49,000
jobs the most in any month
since August 1998. .
For 2010, the sharpest,
increases in economic stress
occurred in counties with heavy
concentrations of real estate
workers. Nevada was again by
far the most troubled state with
a Stress score of 22.56. It was
followed by Florida (16.47),
California (16:36), Georgia
(14.5) and Arizona (14.46).
Among those five, only
Nevada's Stress score rose from
November to December.
And once again, the healthi-
est states were in the Plains and
New England. North Dakota
had the lowest Stress score in
December: 4.65. It was followed
by Nebraska (5.38), South
Dakota (5.69), Vermont (6.19)
and New Hampshire (6.95).,
Nationally, the unemploy-
ment rate has sunk over the
past two months, from 9.8 per-
cent in November to 9 percent
in January. But hiring remains
weak because employers still
lack confidence in the econo-
my. Most analysts say the tax-
cut deal that took effect this
year will help. Extra take-home
pay could lead consumers -
who fuel about 70 percent of
. the economy to spend more.
"The tax deal provides the
economy with some significant
juice that will lead to better
growth, better job creation and
lower unemployment," said
Mark Zandi, chief economist
at Moody's Analytics.
In December, stress
increased the most in the West.
That was due primarily to wors-
ening bankruptcies and fore-
closures. Foreclosures in the
nation's hardest hit communi-
ties in California and Florida
have dipped in recent months.
But they've risen in areas like
Seattle; Salt Lake City; Albu-
querque, N.M.; and Greeley,
In December, Georgia joined
the list of five most-stressed
states for the first time, and
Michigan emerged from the list
for the first time. The Stress
Index's calculations date to
Michigan is benefiting from
having missed the real' estate
bubble and'bust. It's also man-
aged its budget better than
most other high-stress states
have. Job hemorrhaging has
bden stanched, in part because
. of a more stable manufactur-
ing sector. The state is expected
to end 2011 with job gains for
the first time in nearly a decade.
Many of the new jobs are in
health care and professional'
services, though manufacturing
is also adding jobs thanks to
demand from overseas, said
Hari Singh, an economist at
Grand Valley State University
in Grand Rapids, Mich.
"MNanufacturing is definitely
having a turnaround," Singh
said. In Georgia,; the unem-
ployment rate has risen steadi-
ly since July. So.have foreclo-
sures and bankruptcy filings.
Georgia has the second-high-
est bankruptcy rate at about 2.2
percent, trailing only Nevada.,
It's also saddled with the sev-
enth-highest foreclosure rate.
Its troubles stem from the
state's real estate boom and col-
lapse, said Rajeev Dhawan. an
economist at Georgia State
"Bankruptcies and foreclo-
sures are the side effects of the
damage from the real estate
bust," Dhawan said. "First, you
have the real estate problem,
and then it's going to spill over
into bankruptcies and foreclo-
sures. That is what has been
happening in Georgia."
In December, the most eco-
nomically stressed counties with
populations of at least 25,000
were Imperial County, Calif
(32.39); Lyon County, Nev.
(27.56); Nye County, Nev.
(25.91); Merced County, Calif.
(25.37); and Yuma County,
The healthiest counties
according to the Stress Index
were Ellis County, Kan. (3.48);
Buffalo County, Neb. (3.74);
Ford County, Kan. (3.95); Ward
County, N.D. (4.02); and Sioux

Britain hikes tax rate on
banks to raise 2.5B pounds
(AP Photo/Lefteris Pitarakis)
TAX RATE HIKE: A billboard for tourists shows the Bank of England, as it s seen on the background, in
Loridon's City financial district, Thursday, Jan. 13, 2011. The Bank of England is today expected to resist
pressure to hike UK interest rates despite fears over surging inflation and commodity prices. Policymakers
are unlikely to raise the Bank's base rate, which is at an all-time low of 0.5%, for fear of jeopardising the
feeble economic recovery. However some economists think the Bank will have to act soon in order to con-
trol inflation, which hit 3.3% as measured by the consumer price index (CPI) in November, fuelled by the
rising cost of food, clothes and oil.
Britain is increasing its bank
levy to raise 2.5 billion pounds
($4 billion) this year as a pay-
back for taxpayers' support of
the sector during the credit cri-
Ssis'.. . .
The government said it acted
because of the recent financial
strength of the banks, but
bankers were unsettled by the
move while their critics
demanded even higher taxes.
The government had
planned to phase-in thelevy to
raise 1.7 billion pounds this year
and move toward the target of
2.5 billion pounds in 2012.
Treasury- chief George
Osborne said Tuesday the rate
was being raised now because
banks were in a stronger posi-
tion than had been believed
when the legislation was draft-
ed. "We can move more quick-
ly to the full rate and that's
exactly what I have just
announced," he said
The levy 0.075 percent on
bank balance sheets is
intended to make a contribu-
tion to public finances, which
were hurt by the deep reces-
sion trigged by the credit cri-
' It replaces a one-year, 50 per-
cent tax on bank executives'
bonuses which was imposed by
the previous government.
"The banks themselves
understand they need to make
a fair contribution to the eco-
nomic recovery," Osborne said.
.Graeme Leach, chief econo-
mist at the Institute of Direc-
tors, said that increases in the
levy posed a risk of undermin-
ing the competitiveness of
British financial companies.
"Today's announcement of
a further increase of 800 mil-
lion pounds in the levy confirms
our initial concern; let's hope
it's the last increase," Leach
The government remains in
negotiations with the banks to
have them commit a certain
amount of lending to small and
The Financial Times report-
ed Tuesday that the annual
lending target is likely to be 190
billion pounds, up from 175 bil-
lion this year.
The newspaper said the
negotiations known as Pro-
ject Merlin are also expected
to produce some agreement on
disclosure for the highest
bonuses paid by banks.
The British Bankers' Asso-
ciation said the levy will hit
hardest on the country's global

STATEMENT OF CLAIM
1. As a result of litigation between the Plaintiffs and the First Defendant ("Carib") in the
United Kingdom, a judgement was entered in the English High Court of Justice, Queen's Bench
Division, Commercial Court on 4h" May, 2007 ("the English Judgement").
2. By an Order of this Honourable Court dated 27* November, 2007, the English Judgement
was registered as a Judgement within the Commonwealth of the Bahamas whereby it was held
that Carib was ordered to pay the Plaintiffs:
(a) the principle sum of Four hundred and Thirteen thousand Seven hundred and
Thirty-two pounds sterling and Ninety-three pence (413,732,193) in costs ("the
(b) intereston the Assessed Costs front 4" May, 2007;
(c) fixed costs assessment fee of One hundred and Thirty pounds sterling (130.00)
("the. Assessment Fee"); and
(d) interest on the Assessment Fee from 19"' September, 2007.
3. As is required under Chapter 77 of the Reciprocal Enforcement Judgement Act and the
Reciprocal Enforcement of Judgement Rules, the Plaintiffs served Carib at their registered office,
their principal business office and also at the office of their local legal advisor with a copy of the
(a) the ex parte Order of Mr. Justice Faizool Mohammed dated .and filed herein 27"h
(b) a copy of the ex part Originating Summons filed herein on 7 November, 2007;
(c) the Affidavit of Simon John Kemp filed herein on 70" No% ember, 2007,
(d) the Plaintiffs' bundle of documents and skeleton arguments relied. upon by the
attorneys for the Plaintiffs at the ex parte hearing before Mr. Justice Mohammed
on 27"' November. 2007: and
(e) all other documents filed in the aforesaid English proceedings.
4. The said service upon Carib took place on 29' November, 2007 and 3Yd December, 2007
5. .Further, in accordance with the Reciprocal Enforcement of Judgement Act, Chapter 77
and the Reciprocal Enforcement of Judgement Rules, Carib was personally served with the
Notice of Registration on 23d January, 2008.
6. Carib, at no point, made any application to set aside the said registration. The Plaintiffs
were, therefore, entitled to enforce the Order.
7. The Plaintiffs have not recovered any of the sums awarded to them in the English
Judgement nor have they received any other monies in satisfaction of the English Judgement
8. At the time of the registration of the English Judgement, Carib was the registered owner
of a Bahamian registered vessel, the "UNITED STAR". The Defendant was also the owner of
the Bahamian registered vessels the "UNITED SPIRIT" and also the "KCT". However, those
vessels have been deleted from the Register of Bahamian Ships. It is noted that these deletions
occurred after Carib was put on actual notice of the Plaintiffs' English Judgement of 4"' May,
2007 and of an application for a Default Costs Certificate being made under the English
9. On 9h April, 2008 the Plaintiffs filed an ex pane Originating Summons for a Charging
Order Nisi and.for a post Judgement Mareva injunction against Carib and their Directors, A
Charging Order was granted ex parte on 140' April, 2008 and the Order was filed on 16* April,
2008. A copy of the said Charging Order Nisi was served along with the Originating Summons
on the registered office and agent of Carib and at Carib's business office.
10. The Charging Order was made Absolute by a further Order dated 16"' May, 2008 and
filed on 9"' June, 2008. A copy of this charging Order Absolute was served on the registered
office and agent of Carib and at Carib's business office.
11.. By an Order dated 4' December, 2008, it was ordered that:
"The Respondent/Defendant herein, whether by themselves, their agents or servants or
otherwise howsoever be and is hereby restrained whether acting, by its Directors or
howsoever otherwise from selling, transferring, assigning, hedging, charging, further
encumbering or otherwise dealing with the assets, and/or the issued shares of Carib, a
Bahamian registered company and without prejudice of the generality of the foregoing
the expression assets shall include the motor vessel "UNITED STAR" and any other
ships or vessels in the ownership of Carib or the traceable proceeds thereof and the
freight or other income from such ships."
12. Carib were the registered owners of the "UNITED STAR", the "UNITED SPIRIT" and
the "KCT". All three vessels were assets of Carib as defined by the Order of 4* December,
2008. .All three vessels were in Carib's possession at the time of the English Judgement. It was
with fill knowledge of the English Judgement and the registration of that Judgement, or
application to register, that Carib disposed of the vessels in an attempt to dissipate its assets.
13. The Plaintiffs have recently learnt that the "UNITED STAR" and its sister the
"UNITED SPIRIT" have been deleted from the Maritime Register and are no longer registered
under the Merchant Shipping Act. The vessels are still in the possession of the
Respondent/Defendant but have been removed from the Maritime Register in an ttenmpt to
THE TRIBUNE WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 9,2011, PAGE 7B
defraud the Applicant/Claimant and to avoid the English Judgement. In short, all three
Defendants are involved in a conspiracy to defraud the Claimant.
14. The vessels, the "UNITED STAR" and the "UNITED SPIRIT" have been transferred
to Ro Ro Company Ltd. ("Ro Ro") which is the alter'ego of Mr. Thomas Hanna ("Mr. Hanna").
Mr. Hanna is also the President and Director of Carib. While the KCT has been transferred to
Southeastern Freight Service Limited, which is also the alter ego of Mr. Hanna.
15. Ro Ro's registered office, as stated on its Annual Business Licence, is Soldier Road
West. The registered office of Carib, as stated on its Annual Business Licence, is also Soldier
16. Mr. Hanna is the beneficial owner of all the issued shares in both Carib and Rn Ro.
17. The Defendants have all conspired to defraud the Plaintiffs and the Plaintiffs are entitled
to the delivery up of all three vessels as assets of Carib.
The "UNITED SPIRIT"
18. The "U1NITED SPIRIT" was removed from the Maritime Register on 22" August,
2007. The vessel has been renamed the "SEA SPIRIT" II" and is registered as being owned by
Ro Ro Company Ltd. The New Providence Port Authority Board confirm that the "UNITED
SPIRIT" was renamed the "SEA SPIRIT Il" in December 2007. The "SEA SPIRIT II" is
registered with the New Providence Port Authority under the provisions of the Boat Registration
19. Mr. Hanna, on behalf of Carib, as owner, wrote to Captain Anthony Aliens on 149'
December, 2006 stating that he had sold the "UNITED SPIRIT" to Ro Ro. However, Mr,
Hanna wrote to the Chairman of the New Providence Port Authority Board on 29d' March, 2007
authorizing Ms. Evelyn Frith to represent Carib in the transfer of the "UNITED SPIRIT" to Ro
Ro, a transfer which he had already confirmed took place three months previously. He then
made a sworn affidavit dated 15*' June, 2007 stating that Carib was the registered owner of the
"UNITED SPIRIT" and that he was the beneficial owner of all the issued shares.in Carib. At r
the very least, Mr. Hanna and the other Defendants have not been consistent in their fraud and
Mr. Hanna has sworn a fraudulent affidavit.
20. Further, the business licence of Carib states that its trading address is Soldier Road West
in the Bahamas, The business licence of Ro Ro also states that its business address is Soldier
Road West in the Bahamas. The Plaintiffs/Applicants believe that Mr. Hanna is the beneficial
owner of Ro Ro and further, that the "UNITED SPIRIT" is still an asset of Carib and is in its
possession under the new name "SEA SPIRIT 11"
The "UNITED STAR"
21. On 27"' February. 2008 the "UNITED STAR" was deleted from the Maritime Register.
It is believed that ownership ofthe "UNITED STAR" remains vested in Ro Ro.
22I "'"The "KCT" was nwned hy Caib' and was, therefore, an asset of that said company On
or about 2007 Carib, with full knowledge of the English proceedings, transferred the "KCT" to
Southeastern Freight Service Limited, which is an alter ego of Mr. Hanna. "KCT" remains
registered under the.Merchant Shipping Act with Number 7000006.
23. These vessels were disposed of in breach of se.cral Court Orders and were done so by
the Defendant in full knowledge of those Court Ordeis. As a result the Plainttlf.. via their court'
appointed Receiver, Mr. George Clifford Culmer. are entitled toa. the delivery up of the
"UNITED STAR", the "UNITED SPIRIT" and the "KCT" as being property disposed of in
breach of the aforementioned Court Orders and with full knowledge of the English proceedings
and application to register the English Judgement' in the Bahamas in a conspiracy by the
Defendants to defraud the Plaintiffs.
24. Further and for the avoidance of doubt, it is clear that Mr. Hanna and Carib disposed of
the vessels in full knowledge of the English proceedings and in a blatant attempt to defraud the
Plaintiffs The Plaintiffs issued a claim form in ihe English Court on 10h August, 2005. That
claim form was served upon Carib out of jurisdiction in the Bahamas on 8th November, 2005.
Carib acknowledged service of hat Claim form and served a Defence on I I"' May. 2006.
25. Carib then failed to comply with any further court directions and consequently allowed
judgement to be entered against them in default. This was clearly a ploy to allow it time to
dissipate its assets in advance of judgement being entered against it,
AND the PlaintitTs claim:
1. the delivery up of the vessels, the "UNITED STAR", the "SEA SPIRIT II" (formerly
the "UNITED SPIRIT") and the "KCT" forthwith;
2. damages for conspiracy to defraud and/or equitable compensation; and
3. punitive damages to be assessed in such amount. as to the Court sees fit.

Ireland-record $24B loss
Anglo Irish Bank, the reck-
less institution at the heart of
Ireland's slide towards bank-
ruptcy, has reported a prelimi-
nary eurol7.6 billion ($24 bil-
lion) loss for 2010 by far the
worst in Irish corporate history.
State-owned Anglo revealed
the staggering figure Tuesday
after the Dublin High Court
approved a government plan to
merge Anglo with another bust
bank, Irish Nationwide, within
weeks. The court order permits
both banks to auction off their
surviving deposit bases to sol-
vent Irish banks.
Tuesday's figure dwarfed Ire-
land's previous figure for worst
corporate loss: Anglo's mark
of eurol2.7 billion ($17.3 bil-
lion) in 2009, when the govern-
ment nationalized the lender to
prevent its immediate collapse.
Anglo said its unofficial,
unaudited 2010 results show
that the bank directly wrote off

I The bank's major source for
2010 earnings, it said, came
from forcing the most junior
tier of its creditors, so-called
to accept only a small percent-
age of their original invest-
ments. That saved Anglo close
to eurol.8 billion ($2.5 billion).
Anglo also shed more light
Tuesday on the terrifying debt
dynamics that forced Ireland
last year to admit defeat in its
two-year struggle to save its
banks without taking a global
bailout qf its own.

The decision is prompting more investors to buy gold and silver
because of concerns about inflation, said Dave Meger, vice presi-

Some other countries, including Indonesia and Brazil, also have
raised rates inran effort to control inflation. Precious metals are con-

Job openings fall for
second straight month
AP Economics Writer
U.S. employers posted fewer
jobs in December, the latest
evidence that businesses are not
ready to step up hiring.
The Labor Department said
Tuesday that employers adver-
tised nearly 3.1 million jobs in
December, a drop of'almost
140,000 from November and
the second straight monthly
decline. That's the lowest total.
The report provides an indi-
cation of future hiring patterns
because it can take several
months to fill many jobs.
Openings have risen by more
than 700,000 since they bot-
tomed out in July 2009, one
month after the recession end-
ed. That's an increase of 31 per-
Analysts expect companies
will start hiring again soon, not-
ing that other data suggests the
economy is improving. Con-
sumers are spending more, lay-
offs are at pre-recession levels
and Dow Jones industrial aver-
age is above 12,000. Also, a sep-
arate report from the National

Avon 4Q net income
disappoints, shares fall
Supply problems in Brazil, poor sales in Russia and rising
costs for.raw materials pushed Avon Products Inc.'s net income
down 15 percent in the fourth quarter.
The makeup plans to raise prices to offset rising costs for
commodities such as resins and chemicals, freight and labor. It
also plans to freeze hiring on all but critical positions.
About 80 percent of Avon's revenue comes from outside of
"As we closed out the year, we continued to experience dis-
appointing sales results which were negatively impacted by.
service disruptions in Brazil and weak performance in Russia,"
CEO Andrea Jung said. She added the company is "squarely
focused" on "restoring growth" in the two regions.
It was the second consecutive quarter of disappointing results
from Brazil, usually a stronghold for Avon. Last quarter, the
company said relaunches of makeup such as mascara and lip-
stick went poorly.
In a call with analysts, Jung'said the poor results had to do
with June government mandates requiring electronic invoices,
which exacerbated problems with its supply system in Brazil,
That led to service delays .and product shortages three times the
normal level. Jung said Avon is updating the systems.
The company blamed weakness in Russia on incentive
requirements that were too high to meet, an increase in taxes
for entrepreneurs and weaker-than-expected r sponse to make-
During a call with analysts, Jung stressed t at the company's

overall strategy and structure, but regionally specific prob-

Valentine for pragmatists
WOULD you prefer to give your
beloved a dozen roses costing a hundred
dollars that will be dead within a week or
supply her with hundreds of roses spread
The answer may seem obvious but
.there's a catch. You must first consider
Bahamian women in varying degrees fall
between the extremes of Nature Girl and
When it comes to Valentine's Day, Nas-
sau Princess must have her dozen roses -
preferably two dozen and a box of Godi-
va chocolates as well as a dinner on Par-
adise Island. Nature Girl may go for a bush
- a rose bush, of course.
To be honest, you can only get away
with this if you are married (or something
similar) to your beloved and share the
place where the rose bush will grow.
And, of course, you must do all the
Now to the nitty gritty.
All plant nurseries sell potted roses and
the price will be between $30 and $40.
Add a couple of dollars for a decorative
cover to hide the pot.
You must allow at least an hour for your
purchase and you should not go to the
nursery on Saturday morning because that
is when everybody else goes to the nurs-
ery. This afternoon should be perfect.
Once you have shown that you are seri-
ous about your choice of rose' bush you
will no doubt be handed on to an assis-
tant who 'knows roses'. Impress him or
her with your tenacity and insightful prob-
You should already know beloved's
favourite colour and this should help pare
down the selection.
If in doubt, choose yellow or pink.
Examine the plant. Look at a ball near
the bottom where a cultivar has been graft-
ed to rootstock. Count the number of
branches coming out of the ball. Three is
tolerable, two is bad. Four or more is what
you are looking for.
There willbe a card attached to the rose
telling its name and type.
Tea roses give large flowers but few of
them. Floribunda roses are somewhat
smaller but bear heavily. Consider.
Smell a blossom. Roses are known for

their beauty and their scent. If a rose has
no scent it is only half a rose.
Borrow a gardening glove from your
assistant and reach in to the largest stem
and work it to and fro lightly.
Some potted roses have small root sys-
tems and will wiggle about easily. A strong
root system will resist movehient.
Examine the leaves. They should be of a
uniform green and look healthy with no
wilting, or drooping. New growth will be
reddish-brown and is a good sign.
By the time you have done all this you
will have either impressed or bored your
assistant and reduced dozens of rose bush-
es to just a few. Now ask the assistant for
a copy of Botanica's Roses. Every nurs-
ery carries it. The book is in alphabetical
order and every rose has a colour picture
and far more information than appears on
the card wired to the stem.
Check in the book for the zone. Here in
The Bahamas we are in zone nine or 10 in
the winter and zone 11 in the summer.
If a rose you are thinking of buying is
zones three to seven, forget about it right
There, I told you it would take an hour.
But you should end up with a magnifi-
cent and appropriate rose for beloved.
And you should have impressed the
assistant no end. While at the nursery buy
a bag of commercial cow manure.
You will need half a bag of the cow
manure a few weeks later when you plant
the rose bush. Mix that in with the soil in a
location that receives full sun. Water well
Your purchase will give years of almost
continuous rose production.
Look at it this way: Is your love exem-
plified by a brief and expensive -gesture or
is it demonstrated by care, consideration
and let's be honest parsimony?
Now try and convince beloved.

Giving Nassau an extra C
duction, but he was able to say that it
will capture Nassau in the early 1900s.
"I have already started working on
the production. I already have the con-
cepts completed and one of the charac-
ters is complete as well. The animation
will date in the early 1900s of Nassau so
I did a lot of research and looked at a lot
of pictures of Nassau during that time,"
And while he does not want to toot
his own horn, he says that this has the
potential to be one of the best animation
productions the Bahamas has ever seen.
"I believe that it will be well done
because I know the level of quality I
am looking to put out," he said.
Cartoons like SpongeBob, Drag-
onBall Z and Avatar might be fun to '
watch, but there is a lot of work that
goes into making these characters and
stories come alive.
"There is a lot of work that goes into
this. The first thing you have to do is
learn the story, get the feel of the char-
acters. So basically you have to play the
role of director, producer and the actor.
Then you have to break the story up
into a script, the characters have to be
developed on paper and then devel-
oped into a 3D space on screen. So there
a lot that goes into it but if you have a
good enough team behind you then it
makes it less time consuming," he said.
The greatest gratification he gets is
the reaction from those who view his
work, Kristofa said.

Little Ms Garrett opened last
week's auditions and walked into the
audition room with immense confi-

judges almost as soon as she started to
sing. She sang a few verses from a song
called "Now Behold The Lamb" and
Steven Tyler mocked her by saying,.
"you're going to Siberia".
In response, Victoria said she let

Unlike Victoria Garrett, Tim
Halperin swept the judges off their
feet when he sang Maroon 5's "She

He made it clear that he had a huge

here, like you had a connection with J

Randy got up out of his seat and said

Kilpatrick leads cincinlnati

V ROSEMONT, Ill. (AP) Sean Kilpatrick scored
-19 points, Ibrahima Thomas added 16 and strug-
S .gling Cincinnati hung on to beat DePaul 71-68 on
The Bearcats (19-5, 6-5 Big East) had dropped
five of eight after a 15-0 start and were coming off
back-to-back losses to West Virginia and.Pittsburgh.
Nothing like playing a last-place teanm to break a
slump, even if things got a little tense at the end.
Cincinnati led by 17 early in the second half only
to see DePaul (6-18, 0-11) nearly whittle it all away
down the stretch.
Things g6t particularly interesting when Moses
Morgan converted a four-point play, burying the
free throw after nailing a corner 3 while getting
fouled by Kilpatrick. That pulled DePaul within 69-
65 with 1:34 left.
After a shot-clock violation with 58 seconds left,
the Bearcats' Rashad Bishop blocked a 3 by Mor-
gan. Cincinnati's Darnell Wilks missed a free throw,
but with a chance to make it a two-point game, the
Blue Demons' Tony Freeland missed two at the line
With 14 seconds remaining.
Wilks then hit one foul shot to make it 70-65, but
DePaul wasn't finished. Brandon Young nailed a 3
with 0.4 seconds left, and after Cincinnati threw
away the inbounds pass, a shot by the Blue
Demons' Jimmy Drew rolled off the rim, preserving
the win for Cincinnati.
Along with the big efforts from Kilpatrick and
Thomas, Cincinnati got 10 points from Cashmere
Wright. Yancy Gates came off the bench and added
just five after serving a one-game suspension for
violating team rules. The team's top rebounder and
second-leading scorer, he blew up at an assistant in
practice last week, according to the Cincinnati
.. Enquirer, and did not play against Pittsburgh.
Cleveland Melvin scored 20 and Young added 16
Sfor DePaul, which is still searching for its first Big
East victory under coach Oliver Purnell.
Not since a win at home over Marquette on Jan.
20,2010, have they beaten a conference foe, and
Cincinnati wasn't about to let that streak end.
Kilpatrick scored 14 and Cashmere 10 in the first
half as the Bearcats grabbed a 41-26 lead. Cincinnati
picked apart a weak defense while DePaul forced
shots and took control by scoring 10 straight to
-. .bump its lead from six to 16.

Opening lead king of clubs.
At the start of play, declarer must
sometimes visualize a point much
later on when he hopes to establish
an impregnable position. This type of
thinking is usually needed to lay the
groundwork for an elimination play.
Here is a typical case. Declarer is
in six spades, and West leads the king
of clubs. South sees at once that the
outcome hinges on whether he loses
one diamond trick or two.
Declarer's first thought, of
course, is that he could rely on a suc-
cessful diamond finesse to bring
home the slam. But this is not a par-
ticularly good prospect, considering
that West overcalled with two clubs
and is therefore highly likely to have
the king of diamonds.
So South starts thinking about
how to avoid the diamond finesse.
And, somewhere in the course of his
cogitations, it occurs to him that he
might be able to endplay West and
force a favorable return.
Accordingly, South ruffs the king
of clubs, cashes the A-K of trumps,
ruffs another club, cashes the K-A of
hearts and ruffs a heart in dummy.
Then, having eliminated hearts from
both hands, South next eliminates
dummy's clubs. He plays the ace of
clubs, discarding a diamond, and
leads dummny's last club, the seven.
East discards a heart, and now
South, instead of ruffing the club,
discards another diamond! West wins
the club-- it is now trick number
nine but must then return a dia-
mond into South's A-Q or yield a
ruff-and-discard. Either way, the
slam is home, and South's planning
at trick one pays the maximum divi-
dend at trick 10.
Tomorrow: Test your play.

Clijsters closes in on No. 1 ranking Nieminen
By JEROME PUGMIRE
AP Sports Writer
PARIS (AP) Kim Cli-
jsters is more interested in try-
ing to win major titles than
returning to the No. 1 ranking
for the first time in five years,
despite being only two match-
es away from overtaking Car-
oline Wozniacki at the top.
Clijsters, who won the Aus-
tralian Open for her fourth
Grand Slam victory, only
needs to reach the semifinals
of the Open Gaz de France
this week. She plays Kristina
Barrois of Germany in the
second round today.
"When you're this close to
making it, it would be a nice
accomplishment if I could do
it," the 27-year-old Clijsters
said Tuesday. "I'm not going
to be disappointed if I don't
make it. I would.like to focus
on a few more goals through-
out this season, which are a
couple of the bigger tourna-

at 20 would always mean
more to her. The Belgian held
the top spot again in 2003,
and was last No. 1 in January
"Back then I felt like it was
a big achievement because I
was obviously a lot younger
and playing in an era where
there were a lot of big names
out there," Clijsters said.
"Lindsay Davenport, the
Williams sisters were a part
of it. I was in a very similar sit-
uation to what Caroline Woz-
niacki is now I hadn't won
a Grand Slam."
Clijsters, who has also won
three US Open titles, could
possibly meet the fifth-seeded
Nadia Petrova of Russia in
the quarterfinals. That may
be a tough match since she
hasn't rested since beating Li
Na of China in the Australian
Open final on January 29.
Clijsters won both her Fed
Cup matches against.Ameri-
can players Melanie Oudin
and Bethanie Mattek-Sands
last weekend. Oudin rallied
to beat Vera Dushevina of
Russia 7-5,5-7, 6-2 Tuesday in
the first round matches of the
Open Gaz de France.

relax and recover. I'm still

going on with the same inten-
sity I was in my three or four
weeks in Australia," Clijsters
said. "But I do look forward
to having a few days off when
I'm done in this tournament."
Both times in 2003, Clijsters
lost her No. 1 ranking to Jus-
tine Henin, a friend and for-
mer Fed Cup teammate.
Henin recently announced
her retirement for the second
time because of an elbow

Bent and Rooney to lead
