But police
deny ‘crisis’

SOME businessmen believe
police are trying to play down a
crime explosion which has
included a string of rapes and
robberies in some of Nassau’s
wealthiest neighbourhoods.

At least two prominent
Bahamian families have been
terrorised by gunmen over the

Jast few days, And. a group of
tourists was also held up and
“robbed outside a ‘Cable Beach
hotel early yesterday.

However, Chief Supt Hulan
Hanna, speaking with The Tri-
bune yesterday, assured the
public that crime in the
Bahamas is being successfully
managed by police.

“We don’t want to cause fear
in the community but if persons
don’t have any useful reason to
be out after certain hours, we
suggest strongly that they go
home so they don’t draw atten-
tion to themselves. People can
call the duty officer at the police
station and ask them to send a
unit if they feel they may be tar-
geted,” he said.

Victims of one incident are
Colina Insurance and Nassau
Guardian boss Manny Alexiou
and his family, who were accost-
ed by a gunman on their prop
erty at Montagu.

A shot was fired at the fami-
ly’s dog after the bandit held
up Mr.Alexiou’s wife, Rose-
mary, as she got out of her car
outside their home.

Mrs Alexiou, according to
well-placed sources, was
involved in a struggle with the
gunman after he emerged from
bushes in the garden..

The family’s dog then ran
from the house and was shot at.
Mr Alexiou emerged from his



' it away from

'-home and gave chase as the

gunman fled the scene.

Another incident involved Mr
Ray Pyfrom and his family at
Winton. They were robbed .at
gunpoint at their home.

A businessman told The Tri-
bune: “Crime in Nassau is now
reaching crisis level and there

is no doubt that the police are.
rf. :

trying to keep the fulliextent
away fromthe public”
He added: “However people
feel they should be told what’s
happening in their town, other-
wise we are unlikely to be tak-

‘ing the precautions we should

be taking.”

Concern is growing that
police are downplaying crime
to protect Nassau’s tourism
business. “It is part of an agen-
da to keep the tourists coming,
but we should be concentrating
on providing them with a safe
environment,” said a business
source.

However, Mr Hanna said that
this is not the case.

“There are times when our
officers have to go into the field

to verify the particular cate-

gorisation of the offence. Some-
one might say it was an armed
robbery and it was an attempt-
ed armed robbery. Someone
might say it is a house break-in
and it is an armed robbery,”
said Mr Hanna.

In some cases it was proba-
ble that police would hold or
appear to withhold information
-until they are certain, he said.

“It is not an attempt to
deceive the public or hide crime
as it does not help the country

BEC employee

collapsed after
eC ho nat hiaek

By TIFFANY GRANT
Tribune Staff Reporter.

A BEC employee whose act-
ing manager allegedly refused
to grant him vacation leave col-
lapsed at the corporation’s
headquarters yesterday, accord-
ing to the Bahamas Electrical
Workers Union (BEWU).

Stephano Greene, the union’s
secretary general, claimed that
Kendal Taylor, a technician in
the information technology
department, showed signs of a
mild heart attack.

Mr Greene said the employee
requested vacation time, which
he was entitled to, but the acting
manager allegedly refused to
grant the time off.

He said Mr Taylor told his
supervisor he was suffering

‘from “severe physical and men-

tal stress.”
The union reported that his



supervisor granted the time off,
but not the manager.
According to the: union, Mr
Taylor asked why his vacation
request was denied. Receiving
no response, he asked again.
“At that point he held his
chest and fell out. He started
screaming ‘Why don’t you care
about me?’,” said Mr Greene.
“We are out here today
showing support for this
employee of ours. Also, to let
BEC’s management know that
we will no longer tolerate and
accept any manager who refus-
es to show any sign of human
dignity towards our employees.”
Mr Taylor was taken to Doc-
tors Hospital. According to his
mother, Erma Taylor, he was
resting comfortably in the inten-
sive care unit and doctors will

Another charge stated that between those dates he also
attempted to have intercourse with the 14-year-old.

Chisholm was not required to enter a plea to the charge and
was granted $15,000 bail with two sureties.

Sergeant 877 Lotmore was the prosecutor. The hearing was

adjourned to November 22, 2005.



Kozeny’s ‘multiple
passports’ concern

By A FELICITY
INGRAHAM
Tribune Staff Reporter

CZECH-BORN investor
Viktor Kozeny has a “multitude
of passports”, and it concerns
Magistrate Carolita Bethel, who
has to determine whether he
should be allowed bail in the
extradition proceedings against
him.

Magistrate Bethel told
Kozeny’s lawyer, Phillip Davis,
that not only did it concern her
that he has many passports for
different countries, but also that
lie has a licence to fly and is a
citizen of a country from which
he cannot be extradited.

United States representative .

Francis Cumberbatch objected
to bail for Kozeny, who is want-
ed in the US to answer charges
relating to the laundering of
hundreds of millions of dollars.

Kozeny, said Mr Cumber-
batch, has a passport for the
Czech Republic, where he was
born. He also has a passport for
Venezuela, which states that he
is a Venezuelan national, Mr
Cumberbatch argued, and a
Venezuelan ID card, in which
he is registered as Viktor

Kozeny Stehlikova.

While an extradition treaty
does exist in Venezuela, one of
the limitations of that treaty is
that Venezuelan nationals can-
not be extradited, he argued.

In addition, said Mr Cum-
berbatch, Kozeny has five pass-
ports issued in Ireland, two of
which expire this year and two
of which expire in 2007.

“There is compelling evi-
dence that he has been able to
obtain a passport at will,” said
Mr Cumberbatch.

“He is a fugitive with access
to large sums of money and sev-
eral passports, one of which is
from a country from which he
cannot be extradited.”

Furthermore, Kozeny holds
a licence to fly a single or multi-
engine aircraft and can perform
an instrument landing, argued
Mr Cumberbatch. He holds an
FAA licence from the US.

Whereas he is wanted in the
Czech Republic for extradition
as well, said Mr Cumberbatch,
he has the money to go to a
country which would embrace
him with open arms, and in Ire-

disappointed to see their work
“pulled down to the gutters”.

They were expressing their
views on what they said were
attempts to oust Tommy Turn-
quest from the post of party
leader.

Sources inside the party say
that the move by FNM MPs to
install Hubert Ingraham as part-
ly leader is still alive.

One FNM council member
said last week’s council vote on
whether to install Mr Ingraham
as leader of the opposition in
the House, was only “part two”
in a four-part plan.

Mr Bethel, speaking on the
ZNS talk show Immediate

' Response with host Darold

Miller yesterday, said Mr
Dupuch and Mr Wells would
rather destroy the FNM than
help it.

“They are not FNMs, what-
ever they may have been in the

past, they are not FNMs. They
don’t speak for the FNM, they
have their own agenda, it seems,
to try and wreck the FNM at
every turn.” ,

Mr Bethel said that although
they had not technically been
expelled from the party, the fact

that both men were elected as
independents should indicate
that they are no longer FNMs.

He said they are will not be

allowed to attend the upcom- .

ing FNM convention in Novem-
ber.

Mr Wells and Mr Dupuch
told The Tribune that they are
not bothered by Mr Bethel’s
comments.

Mr Dupuch said: “How are
we hurting the party? I’m not
worried about Carl Bethel.
How can I destroy the FNM
when I’m not there?

“T didn’t double-cross Mr
Turnquest. I didn’t ask Mr
Smith (Alvin Smith, current
leader of the opposition in the
House) to make public state-
ments and then have to go back

‘on them. Carl Bethel can fix his

mouth to say just about any-
thing.

“Who called that council

meeting? Who sabotaged Tom-

Bahamians, and members of the
House. We made comments on
what they did. They made fools
of themselves. They leaked stuff
to the press. It backfired on
them, not us,” Mr Dupuch said.

Echoing these sentiments, Mr
Wells said that his comments
on the FNM can be called an
attempt to move the party back
to the “integrity and stature”
that it once possessed. .

“Carl Bethel can’t point to
one family that did more for the
FNM to survive than the Isaacs
family and the Tennyson Wells
family. Even to put.a roof over
their head. I’m very, very dis-
appointed that he would go that
way.

years or so. I have always said
that,” he said.

Bahamasair!

By PAUL G TURNQUEST

BRADLEY Roberts: Minis: ‘1

ter of Works and, Utilities with

responsibility for Bahamasair,

yesterday defended himself
against allegations levelled at
him by Senator Tommy Turn-
quest regarding the perfor-
mance of the national airline.
Mr Roberts said that during
his tenure, Bahamasair has seen
the losses and subsidies incurred

by the airline reduced to their.
lowest levels in recent times.

“TI would like to remind Sen-
ator Turnquest that it was on
his government’s watch that
Bahamasair’s losses and gov-
ernment subsidies peaked in
2001 at $35 million and $21 mil-
lion respectively.

“In case he has not been
keeping abreast, it is on my
watch that the losses and subsi-
dies have been reduced in 2004
to their lowest in recent times of
$11.4 million and $16 million
respectively.

“It is strange that Senator
Turnquest only now surfaces
making claims that the airline
is “in an utter mess” when many
are praising the airline and
when the airline is doing the

best in its 32 year history in.

time performance,” Mr Roberts
said.

ning of the airline, as he has

because 22 of its pilots were not

“Regarding the pilot sitvia-
tion I have been advised by the:
management of Bahamasair
that the procedural glitch has
caused some disruption in ser-
vice which has necessitated use’
of charters on low demand
routes,” said Mr Roberts. A

“My information is that the
pilots were all trained in the
normal and usual fashion under
the watchful eye of the Flight
Standards Inspectorate (FSI).
So it should be made clear that.
no untrained pilot operated any*

Mr Roberts explained that;
the problem. arose because a+

facility neglected to have his:
training certification renewed
with FSI “in a timely fashion”, -

The pilot in question, Mr
Roberts said, trained Bahama-,

in turn trained several of the:
airline’s pilots.

“Therefore, all such pilots
trained were technically de-,

Government denies
school repair claims

Concerns labelled
‘plain foolishness’

By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Staff Reporter

HE government
has refuted claims
that repairs to
government
schools were not
completed because the allocat-
ed funds were used to host the
recent National Education Con-
ference. FNM MP Alvin Smith
raised the matter in the House
of Assembly on Wednesday.
“I have heard that one of the
reasons that the repairs were
not done was because the
monies that this House
approved for school repairs
were instead used to put on the
National Education Confer-
ence,” he told parliamentarians.
According to Mr Smith, gov-
ernment spent $1.5 million -
about the budgeted amounted
for school repairs, on the con-
ference - after “scaling down”
initial plans to spend $2.5 mil-
lion.
However, works Minister
Bradley Roberts called the sug-
gestion “ plain foolishness.”

“I am shocked and bewil-
dered that a former junior min-
ister of education would get up
in this chamber and talk plain
foolishness,” said Mr Roberts.

“All he needs to do is look
at the budget allocated for edu-
cation and to talk about taking
away a small amount for a con-
ference makes no sense.”

Mr Smith maintained that the
government failed to provide a
suitable amount for repairs in
the first place.

He pointed out that during
this year’s budget debate, he
warned Education Minister
Alfred Sears that $1.5 million
would be an insufficient amount
to complete all the necessary
repairs to schools. “But the min-
ister said some repairs had been
made because of the hurricane.”

Mr Smith said he tried.to
point out that in addition to
hurricane damage, annual
repairs would have to be done

before school reopened.

“In terms of prioritising, these
funds should have been used
for the repair of schools,” he
said. ,

Education needs total revamp

By RUPERT MISSICK Jr
Chief Reporter

THE Bahamas’ educational
system needs improving at all
levels, according to the conclu-
sions of the newly released
Bahamas Living Conditions
Survey.

The survey stressed the need
to ensure that when students
exit the system, they do so with
acceptable academic qualifica-
tions.

One recommendation of the
study was to eliminaté ‘social
promotion.

In addition; it suggested that ‘

on islands where crabbing, fish-
ing and harvesting of crops are
‘major economic activities for
families, a “shift system” of
schooling should be introduced,
so that critical school hours are
not missed.

The report was tabled in the
House of Assembly by Social
Services Minister Melanie Grif-
. fin on Wednesday.

Abaco, Andros and

portion of children with only

These islands were.also home
to youths who were on average
less qualified; they contained
the largest proportion of per-
sons without qualifications and
the smallest proportion with
either BGCSE or post sec-
ondary qualifications.
Throughout the Bahamas,

. males outnumbered females in

the school system. However, the
participation of females was
more meaningful, as their atten-
dance and enrollment was more
consistent.

The report concluded that
students from outside New
Providence and Grand Bahama
have limited access to tertiary
institutions and depend almost
entirely on government operat-
ed schools for their education:

First industrial
agreement for
Andros resort

By KARAN MINNIS

THE first ever industrial
agreement for the 22 workers
at the Lighthouse Yacht Club
and Marina in Fresh Creek
was signed yesterday - in antic-
ipation of a major develop-
ment in Andros.

The contract was signed by
officials from the Bahamas
Hotel Corporation and repre-
sentatives of the Bahamas
Hotel Catering and Allied
Union (BHCAU).

Speaking at the official sign-
ing of the agreement, Hotel

Corporation chairman George.

Smith called, it a proud
moment for both the workers
and Minister of Labour and
Immigration Vincent Peet.
“Some of you would have
heard that the Hotel Corpora-
tion of the Bahamas is very

engaged presently in negotiat-
ing a major development in
and around the Fresh. Creek
area, with the Lighthouse Club
being the center piece of what
will be a major touristic golf-

: — ¢

course, with marinas, hotels,
timeshare, and a residential
community that will spring-
board the economy of Andros

.-” he said. “The potential of
Andros is great and I feel that
what we do today has placed
this union with the position so
that when that major develop-
ment is brought to fruition, the
union will be in the place to
say to those that will inherit
the property of the Lighthouse
Club that we are a union, we
are on site, we were here from
day one.”

According to BHCAU pres-
ident Pat Bain, the agreement,
which will last for three years,
will provide the workers with
an overall increase in salary,
improved working conditions
and better interaction with the
Hotel Corporation via the
union. He added that although
the agreement took over a year
to complete, he feels as though
the negotiations went well in
terms of ensuring that both
sides received “the best possi-
ble outcome.”

If the FNM cannot be trusted

THE College of the Bahamas

art programme has received.a, .

$15,000 boost through the dona-
tion of glass blowing equipment
from the RBC FINCO.

COB will now be able to

offer a glass blowing course to:,

students.

The donation is particularly
significant, because it will be
the only one of its kind in the

region,said Denton Brown,
COB’s vice president of admin- ©

istration and finance.

He said that the college is
pleased to accept the gift as it is
an opportunity to further devel-
op the art programme’s cur-
riculum.

Mr Brown pointed out that

as the college moves toward
university status, it is important
to ensure that the arts are not
left behind.

Antonius Roberts, director
of RBC FINCO’s summer art
programme and former lecturer
at the college, explained that
the students in the programme
have been learning about glass

_ blowing for the first time this

past summer.

He said glass blowing is a fine
art, but very expensive.

Mr Roberts thanked the bank
for the donation.

He also noted that Christo-
pher Taylor from the Rhode
Island School of Design was
able to fly to the Bahamas and
teach Bahamian students about
glass blowing,

Nat Beneby, the managing



director of finance at RBC FIN-
CO, said that the company has
always been very pleased to
help Bahamians develop their
natural talents. He said the
company hopes the introduc-
tion of glass blowing into the
curriculum will spark career
opportunities in the field.

Following the official presen-
tation, COB student Jonathan
Murphy presented the bank
representatives with a glass
sculpture made during Mr Tay-
lor’s visit to Nassau.

Maxwell Wildgoose, another
student, demonstrated the use
of the equipment.

For the past 14 years, the
bank has conducted its summer
art workshop programme in
partnership with COB using the
art resources of the institution.

HROUGHOUT

our lifetime, which

is nearing the bib-

lical three score

and ten-year
mark, we have encountered
countless challenges that we
were able to overcome through
the grace of God.

Given our sinful nature, that
grace is definitely undeserved
favour. But, after all, we serve a
compassionate and forgiving
God.

By the time we had reached
our 15th birthday, both our par-
ents had already died — our
mother having passed away in
1945, when we were just seven
years old. Fortunately for us,
our sister Miriam, who was nine
years older, became the mother
figure in our life.

A year after our father’s
death in 1953; Canon David
John Pugh not only commenced
his 41-year ministry as priest in

charge of St Anne’s Church in...
Fox Hill, but also filled the ‘role ©

of father figure to us for more
than a half-century thereafter.
When we look back on all
that we have achieved thus far
in life — both personally and in
the wider community — we can-
not help but give God thanks
for having sent Miriam and
Canon Pugh to fill such impor-
tant roles in our development
into adulthood and beyond.
Although both of them have
since passed on, we continually
thank God for the positive role

models they provided us dur-
ing their earthly sojourn.

Thus it was against this back-
drop that, a decade ago, fol-
lowing the main mass one Sun-
day morning, we were shocked
to hear a young man passion-
ately expounding to some of his
peers under the almond tree at
the entrance to our church his
conviction that there was no
God.

While we were definitely sur-
prised by his revelation, what
really astounded us was the fact
that we had known four gener-
ations of the young man’s fam-
ily — and they all had been pil-
lars of our church.

Not wishing to embarrass the
young man before his friends,

we elected instead to write him »

a letter refuting his argument
that there was no God, while —
at the same time — reminding
him of the countless occasions
he had called upon the very
God he was now denying to
assist him in making it to col-
lege.

There is a term that ade-
quately defines this sad mode
of human behaviour.’ However,
out of respect to our readers,
we shall refrain from employ-
ing it here. Nevertheless, suf-
fice it to say that many human
beings have a habit of calling
upon God in times of want or
trouble, then attempting to go it
alone once those challenges
have been overcome.

example of the presence of God
that occurred during the evacu-
ation of millions of people from
Houston, Texas, as Hurricane
Rita was approaching that
American city.

A bus loaded with elderly
patients caught afire on the
highway and the situation wors-
ened as the oxygen canisters of
some of them exploded in the
horrible inferno. Although
some 24 of the elderly passen-
gers died in that tragedy, many
others — including a 101-year-
old gentleman — were saved by
brave rescuers who rose to the
occasion. Surely, God had a

hand in saving the lives of those .

who were rescued.

Our next example is rather
personal in nature and we wish
to share the same with our read-
ers. It follows thus: Just before
Hurricanes Frances and Jeanne
struck The Bahamas a year ago,
we were diagnosed with
prostate cancer. As the cancer
had spread beyond the prostate,
an.operation to address the
same was not recommended.
We were given two other
options instead: chemotherapy
or radiation.

Given the adverse experi-

ences with both procedures by
two of our close family mem-
bers, we decided against them,
electing instead to pray to God
for His divine intervention.
That intervention came when
our urologist Dr Joseph Evans
gave us yet another alternative,
the use of a drug called Hon-
van that had been taken off the
market more than a decade ear-
lier. Before returning to practise
in Nassau after completing his
medical studies in the United
States, Dr Evans had practised
for a while with Dr John
Fitzgerald, a renowned urolo-
gist in Coral Gables, Florida.
We had been attending Dr
Fitzgerald at the Gables Med-
ical Center for our annual
prostate examination since our
39th birthday in 1977. However,
ever since his return to The
Bahamas, Dr Evans has been
our urologist. It was while in
Florida that Dr Evans had
become familiar with Honvan
and its effectiveness in the treat-
ment of prostate cancer. The
drug had been produced by
Ames, a small pharmaceutical
company in Connecticut. How-
ever, perhaps due to its effec-
tiveness, a larger drug manu-

this good news, we developed
two other non-related ailments
that required surgery, notwith-
standing what was left of our
cancer.

Thus it was that we entered
Doctors Hospital on the
evening of September 7th this
year and underwent two differ-

ent operations the following

both procedures were successful —

Evans, who performed our two
operations, other medical per-

the staff of Doctors Hospital for
the kind attention they afforded
us.

We wish to also publicly .
express our sincere gratitude to
the many persons who prayed
to God for our recovery, those
who visited us while in hospi-
tal and at home, those who tele-
phoned inquiring of our well-
being, and yet others who sent -
us get-well cards, fruit baskets
and flowers.

Above all, however, we give
God thanks and praise for
enabling us to recover so quick-
ly following those two major
operations. God is indeed good,
believe us. Thus, whenever any
of those misguided souls who
disclaim His existence tell you
and others that there is no pow-
er greater than the most edu-
cated among us — in essence,
that there is no God — just give
them this simple reply: “Yes,
my beloved, there is a God.
One who is both omnipotent
and omniscient — all powerful
and all knowledgeable.”

Think on these things.

and it does not help the police

co-operate with us we have to
honest; we have to appear to
be consistent all the way
through, and our credibility as
an organisation must be seen to
be intact at all times,” said Mr
Hanna.

He apologised if it seemed
police were not informing the
public.. However, he said the
force could not be alarmist.

“We: have to be certain and
satisfied that we are not creating
paranoia and hysteria in a com-
munity. We have to always be

on the side of caution,” he said.

Mr Hanna said police are
acutely aware there has been
an upward spiral in armed rob-
beries in the Eastern area.

“We are concerned about
these matters. It seems as if a
group of persons, not always
acting in a group, approach
householders as they come
home,” he said.

They produce handguns, rob-
bing victims of money, jew-
ellery, and in some instances
taking their vehicles.

“Our response to this has
been that we have a special

team of officers doing covert
work,” Mr Hanna said.

Police had also sought to
increase their uniformed pres-
ence as well. He said many peo-
ple were often not alert to who
might be following them.

“If they see someone paying
particular attention to their
home or business, that should
cause them to wave a red flag
and not go home but to the
nearest police station,” added
Mr Hanna.

Similarly, police were con-
cerned that some people go to
the foodstore and other places
wearing expensive jewellery.

Crooks are casing these areas
and follow them home.

He said ex-convicts were also
returning to the Bahamas from
other jurisdictions.

It is understood that some
businesses are now considering
a joint approach to police com-
missioner Paul Farquharson to
express their anxieties.

An e-mail from a local realtor
was circulated among business-
es this week expressing alarm
at the crime upsurge. She
detailed half a dozen violent
crimes that occurred over the
last week alone.

Early yesterday morning, a

group of tourists returning to.

land, he said the evidence sub-
mitted proves he has the ability
to obtain yearly Irish passports.

“This court ought not to take
the risk,” he said.

‘“It is imperative that the
Commonwealth of the
Bahamias does everything in its
power'to honour the: extradi-
tion treaty. It is incumbent on
this administration to take the
obligation very seriously.”

Mr Cumberbatch added that
Kozeny stands to lose much if
he is extradited, not only due
to a possible 15-year prison sen-
tence; but also because he
stands to lose substantial
amounts of money if forfeiture
proceedings are successful.

He reminded the court that
bail is not a constitutional right
in the Bahamas, as it is in other
Caribbean countries.

He said Kozeny is a mere res-
ident in the Bahamas, and
reminded the judge of the Privy
Council ruling in the Austin
Knowles case, in which the
judges mentioned that mere
residents with access to sub-
stantial cash were likely to flee
the country.

In rebuttal, Mr Davis said Mr
Cumberbatch “failed to identi-
fy any ground” that will sup-
port Kozeny not appearing for
these proceedings.

Mr Davis said that while the
Bail Act of 1994 makes the
granting of bail discretionary,
the grounds laid by Mr Cum-
berbatch were “tenuous and not
substantial’, as required by the
Bail Act.

Section 9 (1) of the Act, he

said, allows the judge to set con- |

ditions which the defendant
must follow in order to main-
tain his bail status.

.He said his client had been

living in the Bahamas in the
Lyford Cay community since
1994, From 1994 to 1998, he said
his client was travelling to and
from the Bahamas.

However, he said Kozeny
had not left the Bahamas since
1998.

Mr Davis said his client had
been fully aware of the possi-
bility of these proceedings com-
ing against him since 2003, and
he always maintained that he
would stay in the Bahamas and
defend himself in the proceed-
ings if or when they came along.

“There is no likelihood that
he will not be here (in court),”’
said Mr Davis.

During Friday’s proceedings,

Kozeny told the court that he

was not afforded the opportu-

nity to voluntarily. go to the US |

for trial.

However, when asked by:
Magistrate Bethel if he wished:

to do so, Mr Davis said he

would stay and fight the extra-

dition here.
His co-accused, Frederic

render to authorities at the FBI
office in Manhattan, New York,

They were arraigned at 1pm,
and will stand trial for a slew of
charges, including bribery and
the laundering of hundreds of
thousands of dollars.

Mr Cumberbatch told the

the British Virgin Islands, the
Cayman Islands, Panama, and
the Bahamas, among other
places.

Magistrate Bethel set Mon-
day as the day she will decide
whether or not to release
Kozeny on bail, as Mr Davis

was not ready on Friday to

explain why his client has so
many passports.

He also plans to present the
judge with cases, such as the

at the hotel gateway.
The incident happened at

‘about 12.30am. The visitors

were held up at gunpoint and
robbed of cash and other items.

-This came a few days after
robberies at two restaurants
within a few yards of the hotel -
Indigo and Capriccio. At Indi-
go, several guests were robbed
of cash, credit cards and: jew-
ellery. Two women were raped

‘in the last week, one in Blair -

where neighbourhood security
patrols make it one of the safest

The e-mail warned: “These
people are crazy and will rob
and rape you - no joke. These

are sick, crazy people. Be care-
ful-- even in the parking lots.
I’ve heard about women being
robbed in Harbour Bay park-
ing lot.”

The Sandals incident was one
of two robberies occurring in
or near hotels early yesterday.

Police press liaison officer
Walter Evans said two men, one
armed with a handgun, entered
the Town Hotel on George
Street around 1am and demand-
ed money from an employee.
The men reportedly escaped on
foot with a small amount of
cash. Of the Sandals incident,
police said a taxi passenger was
robbed of a small amount of
cash by a gunman who fled in a
dark vehicle waiting nearby.

B CHRIS BROWN meets ws adents on his visit to Eleuthera.

MIAMI! HERALD SPORTS

@ By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter

AS GOOD as Chris ‘Bay’
Brown turned out to be, he may

not have been the best track

“and field athlete i in his family.
During a visit to Eleuthera to
honour Brown. and _ the

“Bahamas World Championship

‘team on Thursday, it was
echoed throughout the island
- that his older brother, Joe, also

“had plenty of talent.

-. “He was excellent, but some-
- where along the line, he made
: some mistakes,” said his father,
“Harcourt Brown, who declined
to go into details.,“We’re try-

- ing to encourage; ‘him to come

-‘back.”

Chris ‘Bay’ Brows as he was

Puns in the



celebrations
for Bahamian



Athlete and father pay tribute to older brother



affectionately nicknamed by his
late great-grandmother, Lillian
Elizabeth Gibson, starting run-
ning in. primary school in
Eleuthera, But it was at Preston
Albury High that he really blos-
somed.

After a scholarship fell

through, Brown came to Nas- .

sau and enrolled at RM Bailey
Secondary High.

He eventually was awarded
a scholarship at Norfolk State
University in Virginia and the
rest was history for the 800
metre runner (who still holds

the national record) before he

converted to a quarter-miler.

Over the years, the “land of.

freedom” has produced a
wealth of softball players,
including former national team
pitcher/coach/manager Doggie
Smith, who was recently induct-
ed into the International Soft-
ball Federation’s Hall of Fame.

The island can also take pride
in having four Bahamians play

_in the National Basketball

Association..Dexter Cambridge
was a one-time member of the
Dallas Mavericks. He’s now a
coach at Jordan Prince William
High School.

Brown, however, returned
home with the highest accom-
plishment - a silver medal as a
member of the men’s 4 x 400
relay team at the World Cham-
pionships in Helsinki, Finland
in August.

And, on his return, he spoke
of his brother.

“I respect him the most. He
was a talented guy. I’m sorry
that he didn’t get to go through

the sport the way I did,” Brown |

said. “But he certainly set the
pace for me to follow.”

As he returned home, Brown
was followed by Nathaniel

McKinney, Avard Moncur,
Andrae Williams and Troy
McIntosh, all of whom ran on
the relay team that secured the
silver behind the United States
and ahead of Jamaica in Helsin-
ki.

While those who lined the

.streets and participated in the

two ceremonies held in Gover-
nor’s Harbour and Rock Sound
were delighted to see their
“homeboy,” they warmly
received all the other members
of the team.

Olympic and world champion
Tonique Williams-Darling,

Cell:







quarter-miler Chriitine Amertil,
sprinters Chandra Sturrup, Tim-

icka Clarke and Philippa

Arnett-Willie, long jumper
Jackie Edwards and javelin
thrower Lavern Eve were all in
attendance.

Brown was lost for words try-
ing to sum up the support and
love that he and his team-mates
received.

“It’s good to know that the
whole island was there for us,”
said Brown as he eagerly
showed his team-mates where
he grew up in the “Deep
South.”

Brown’s coach American
Steve Riddick said it was unbe-
lievable to. watch the tremen-
dous support that Brown and
the rest of the athletes received.

But police
deny ‘crisis’

SOME businessmen believe
police are trying to play down a
crime explosion which has
included a string of rapes and
robberies in some of Nassau’s
wealthiest neighbourhoods.

At least two prominent
Bahamian families have been
terrorised by gunmen over the

Jast few days, And. a group of
tourists was also held up and
“robbed outside a ‘Cable Beach
hotel early yesterday.

However, Chief Supt Hulan
Hanna, speaking with The Tri-
bune yesterday, assured the
public that crime in the
Bahamas is being successfully
managed by police.

“We don’t want to cause fear
in the community but if persons
don’t have any useful reason to
be out after certain hours, we
suggest strongly that they go
home so they don’t draw atten-
tion to themselves. People can
call the duty officer at the police
station and ask them to send a
unit if they feel they may be tar-
geted,” he said.

Victims of one incident are
Colina Insurance and Nassau
Guardian boss Manny Alexiou
and his family, who were accost-
ed by a gunman on their prop
erty at Montagu.

A shot was fired at the fami-
ly’s dog after the bandit held
up Mr.Alexiou’s wife, Rose-
mary, as she got out of her car
outside their home.

Mrs Alexiou, according to
well-placed sources, was
involved in a struggle with the
gunman after he emerged from
bushes in the garden..

The family’s dog then ran
from the house and was shot at.
Mr Alexiou emerged from his



' it away from

'-home and gave chase as the

gunman fled the scene.

Another incident involved Mr
Ray Pyfrom and his family at
Winton. They were robbed .at
gunpoint at their home.

A businessman told The Tri-
bune: “Crime in Nassau is now
reaching crisis level and there

is no doubt that the police are.
rf. :

trying to keep the fulliextent
away fromthe public”
He added: “However people
feel they should be told what’s
happening in their town, other-
wise we are unlikely to be tak-

‘ing the precautions we should

be taking.”

Concern is growing that
police are downplaying crime
to protect Nassau’s tourism
business. “It is part of an agen-
da to keep the tourists coming,
but we should be concentrating
on providing them with a safe
environment,” said a business
source.

However, Mr Hanna said that
this is not the case.

“There are times when our
officers have to go into the field

to verify the particular cate-

gorisation of the offence. Some-
one might say it was an armed
robbery and it was an attempt-
ed armed robbery. Someone
might say it is a house break-in
and it is an armed robbery,”
said Mr Hanna.

In some cases it was proba-
ble that police would hold or
appear to withhold information
-until they are certain, he said.

“It is not an attempt to
deceive the public or hide crime
as it does not help the country

collapsed after
eC ho nat hiaek

By TIFFANY GRANT
Tribune Staff Reporter.

A BEC employee whose act-
ing manager allegedly refused
to grant him vacation leave col-
lapsed at the corporation’s
headquarters yesterday, accord-
ing to the Bahamas Electrical
Workers Union (BEWU).

Stephano Greene, the union’s
secretary general, claimed that
Kendal Taylor, a technician in
the information technology
department, showed signs of a
mild heart attack.

Mr Greene said the employee
requested vacation time, which
he was entitled to, but the acting
manager allegedly refused to
grant the time off.

He said Mr Taylor told his
supervisor he was suffering

‘from “severe physical and men-

tal stress.”
The union reported that his



supervisor granted the time off,
but not the manager.
According to the: union, Mr
Taylor asked why his vacation
request was denied. Receiving
no response, he asked again.
“At that point he held his
chest and fell out. He started
screaming ‘Why don’t you care
about me?’,” said Mr Greene.
“We are out here today
showing support for this
employee of ours. Also, to let
BEC’s management know that
we will no longer tolerate and
accept any manager who refus-
es to show any sign of human
dignity towards our employees.”
Mr Taylor was taken to Doc-
tors Hospital. According to his
mother, Erma Taylor, he was

Another charge stated that between those dates he also
attempted to have intercourse with the 14-year-old.

Chisholm was not required to enter a plea to the charge and
was granted $15,000 bail with two sureties.

Sergeant 877 Lotmore was the prosecutor. The hearing was

adjourned to November 22, 2005.



Kozeny’s ‘multiple
passports’ concern

By A FELICITY
INGRAHAM
Tribune Staff Reporter

CZECH-BORN investor
Viktor Kozeny has a “multitude
of passports”, and it concerns
Magistrate Carolita Bethel, who
has to determine whether he
should be allowed bail in the
extradition proceedings against
him.

Magistrate Bethel told
Kozeny’s lawyer, Phillip Davis,
that not only did it concern her
that he has many passports for
different countries, but also that
lie has a licence to fly and is a
citizen of a country from which
he cannot be extradited.

United States representative .

Francis Cumberbatch objected
to bail for Kozeny, who is want-
ed in the US to answer charges
relating to the laundering of
hundreds of millions of dollars.

Kozeny, said Mr Cumber-
batch, has a passport for the
Czech Republic, where he was
born. He also has a passport for
Venezuela, which states that he
is a Venezuelan national, Mr
Cumberbatch argued, and a
Venezuelan ID card, in which
he is registered as Viktor

Kozeny Stehlikova.

While an extradition treaty
does exist in Venezuela, one of
the limitations of that treaty is
that Venezuelan nationals can-
not be extradited, he argued.

In addition, said Mr Cum-
berbatch, Kozeny has five pass-
ports issued in Ireland, two of
which expire this year and two
of which expire in 2007.

“There is compelling evi-
dence that he has been able to
obtain a passport at will,” said
Mr Cumberbatch.

“He is a fugitive with access
to large sums of money and sev-
eral passports, one of which is
from a country from which he
cannot be extradited.”

Furthermore, Kozeny holds
a licence to fly a single or multi-
engine aircraft and can perform
an instrument landing, argued
Mr Cumberbatch. He holds an
FAA licence from the US.

Whereas he is wanted in the
Czech Republic for extradition
as well, said Mr Cumberbatch,
he has the money to go to a
country which would embrace
him with open arms, and in Ire-

disappointed to see their work
“pulled down to the gutters”.

They were expressing their
views on what they said were
attempts to oust Tommy Turn-
quest from the post of party
leader.

Sources inside the party say
that the move by FNM MPs to
install Hubert Ingraham as part-
ly leader is still alive.

One FNM council member
said last week’s council vote on
whether to install Mr Ingraham
as leader of the opposition in
the House, was only “part two”
in a four-part plan.

Mr Bethel, speaking on the
ZNS talk show Immediate

' Response with host Darold

Miller yesterday, said Mr
Dupuch and Mr Wells would
rather destroy the FNM than
help it.

“They are not FNMs, what-
ever they may have been in the

past, they are not FNMs. They
don’t speak for the FNM, they
have their own agenda, it seems,
to try and wreck the FNM at
every turn.” ,

Mr Bethel said that although
they had not technically been
expelled from the party, the fact

that both men were elected as
independents should indicate
that they are no longer FNMs.

He said they are will not be

allowed to attend the upcom- .

ing FNM convention in Novem-
ber.

Mr Wells and Mr Dupuch
told The Tribune that they are
not bothered by Mr Bethel’s
comments.

Mr Dupuch said: “How are
we hurting the party? I’m not
worried about Carl Bethel.
How can I destroy the FNM
when I’m not there?

“T didn’t double-cross Mr
Turnquest. I didn’t ask Mr
Smith (Alvin Smith, current
leader of the opposition in the
House) to make public state-
ments and then have to go back

‘on them. Carl Bethel can fix his

mouth to say just about any-
thing.

“Who called that council

Bahamians, and members of the

what they did. They made fools
of themselves. They leaked stuff
to the press. It backfired on
them, not us,” Mr Dupuch said.

Echoing these sentiments, Mr
Wells said that his comments
on the FNM can be called an
attempt to move the party back
to the “integrity and stature”
that it once possessed. .

“Carl Bethel can’t point to
one family that did more for the
FNM to survive than the Isaacs
family and the Tennyson Wells
family. Even to put.a roof over
their head. I’m very, very dis-
appointed that he would go that
way.

pointed in the leadership and

years or so. I have always said
that,” he said.

back over

Bahamasair!

By PAUL G TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter

BRADLEY Roberts: Minis: ‘1

ter of Works and, Utilities with

responsibility for Bahamasair,

yesterday defended himself
against allegations levelled at
him by Senator Tommy Turn-
quest regarding the perfor-
mance of the national airline.
Mr Roberts said that during
his tenure, Bahamasair has seen
the losses and subsidies incurred

by the airline reduced to their.
lowest levels in recent times.

“TI would like to remind Sen-
ator Turnquest that it was on
his government’s watch that
Bahamasair’s losses and gov-
ernment subsidies peaked in
2001 at $35 million and $21 mil-
lion respectively.

“In case he has not been
keeping abreast, it is on my
watch that the losses and subsi-
dies have been reduced in 2004
to their lowest in recent times of
$11.4 million and $16 million
respectively.

“It is strange that Senator
Turnquest only now surfaces
making claims that the airline
is “in an utter mess” when many
are praising the airline and
when the airline is doing the

best in its 32 year history in.

time performance,” Mr Roberts
said.

ning of the airline, as he has

ment. “Cheap shots at me will

because 22 of its pilots were not

“Regarding the pilot sitvia-
tion I have been advised by the:
management of Bahamasair
that the procedural glitch has
caused some disruption in ser-
vice which has necessitated use’
of charters on low demand
routes,” said Mr Roberts. A

“My information is that the
pilots were all trained in the
normal and usual fashion under
the watchful eye of the Flight
Standards Inspectorate (FSI).
So it should be made clear that.
no untrained pilot operated any*
Bahamasair aircraft,” he said. *

Mr Roberts explained that;
the problem. arose because a+
training pilot at a Canadian.
facility neglected to have his:
training certification renewed
with FSI “in a timely fashion”, -

The pilot in question, Mr
Roberts said, trained Bahama-,
sair’s local training pilot, who,
in turn trained several of the:
airline’s pilots.

“Therefore, all such pilots
trained were technically de-,
qualified after the discovery that
the contracted pilot’s certifica-
tion had expired. This was the

tive/preventative measures have*

“The training pilot’s certifi-
cation has been renewed and,
all pilots would have been

“As Senator Turnquest well:
knows, at Bahamasair, safety;

our schedule. without comprot;

Government denies
school repair claims

Concerns labelled
‘plain foolishness’

By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Staff Reporter

HE government
has refuted claims
that repairs to
government
schools were not
completed because the allocat-
ed funds were used to host the
recent National Education Con-
ference. FNM MP Alvin Smith
raised the matter in the House
of Assembly on Wednesday.
“I have heard that one of the
reasons that the repairs were
not done was because the
monies that this House
approved for school repairs
were instead used to put on the
National Education Confer-
ence,” he told parliamentarians.
According to Mr Smith, gov-
ernment spent $1.5 million -
about the budgeted amounted
for school repairs, on the con-
ference - after “scaling down”
initial plans to spend $2.5 mil-
lion.
However, works Minister
Bradley Roberts called the sug-
gestion “ plain foolishness.”

“I am shocked and bewil-
dered that a former junior min-
ister of education would get up
in this chamber and talk plain
foolishness,” said Mr Roberts.

“All he needs to do is look
at the budget allocated for edu-
cation and to talk about taking
away a small amount for a con-
ference makes no sense.”

Mr Smith maintained that the
government failed to provide a
suitable amount for repairs in
the first place.

He pointed out that during
this year’s budget debate, he
warned Education Minister
Alfred Sears that $1.5 million
would be an insufficient amount
to complete all the necessary
repairs to schools. “But the min-
ister said some repairs had been
made because of the hurricane.”

Mr Smith said he tried.to
point out that in addition to
hurricane damage, annual
repairs would have to be done

before school reopened.

“In terms of prioritising, these
funds should have been used
for the repair of schools,” he
said. ,

By RUPERT MISSICK Jr
Chief Reporter

THE Bahamas’ educational
system needs improving at all
levels, according to the conclu-
sions of the newly released
Bahamas Living Conditions
Survey.

The survey stressed the need
to ensure that when students
exit the system, they do so with
acceptable academic qualifica-
tions.

One recommendation of the
study was to eliminaté ‘social
promotion.

In addition; it suggested that ‘

on islands where crabbing, fish-
ing and harvesting of crops are
‘major economic activities for
families, a “shift system” of
schooling should be introduced,
so that critical school hours are
not missed.

The report was tabled in the
House of Assembly by Social
Services Minister Melanie Grif-
. fin on Wednesday.

Abaco, Andros and
Eleuthera had the largest pro-
portion of children with only
primary level education and the

smallest proportion of. youths
who had completed college.
These islands were.also home
to youths who were on average
less qualified; they contained
the largest proportion of per-
sons without qualifications and
the smallest proportion with
either BGCSE or post sec-
ondary qualifications.
Throughout the Bahamas,

. males outnumbered females in

the school system. However, the
participation of females was
more meaningful, as their atten-
dance and enrollment was more
consistent.

The report concluded that
students from outside New
Providence and Grand Bahama
have limited access to tertiary
institutions and depend almost
entirely on government operat-
ed schools for their education:

Schooling in the Family
Islands was typified by lower
attendance records and higher

The study also shows that 68
per cent of students in the
Bahamas between the ages of
16 and 24 completed high
school, while 32 per cent had
no form of academic qualifica-
tion.

Bahamian girls are more like-
ly to complete their schooling
than boys.

Only 3.8 per cent of girls with

‘one to three years of high

school terminated their educa-
tion at this point compared to
11 per cent of boys and 7.4 per
cent of girls compared to 4.4
per cent of boys completed col-
lege.

Girls also surpassed boys in

In all islands - except Exuma
and Long Island - about 67 per

While only 48.6 per cent of
children in these two islands
completed high school, they had.

First industrial
agreement for
Andros resort

By KARAN MINNIS

THE first ever industrial
agreement for the 22 workers
at the Lighthouse Yacht Club
and Marina in Fresh Creek
was signed yesterday - in antic-
ipation of a major develop-
ment in Andros.

The contract was signed by
officials from the Bahamas
Hotel Corporation and repre-
sentatives of the Bahamas
Hotel Catering and Allied
Union (BHCAU).

Speaking at the official sign-
ing of the agreement, Hotel

Corporation chairman George.

Smith called, it a proud
moment for both the workers
and Minister of Labour and
Immigration Vincent Peet.
“Some of you would have
heard that the Hotel Corpora-
tion of the Bahamas is very

engaged presently in negotiat-
ing a major development in
and around the Fresh. Creek
area, with the Lighthouse Club
being the center piece of what
will be a major touristic golf-

: — ¢

course, with marinas, hotels,
timeshare, and a residential
community that will spring-
board the economy of Andros

.-” he said. “The potential of
Andros is great and I feel that
what we do today has placed
this union with the position so
that when that major develop-
ment is brought to fruition, the
union will be in the place to
say to those that will inherit
the property of the Lighthouse
Club that we are a union, we
are on site, we were here from
day one.”

According to BHCAU pres-
ident Pat Bain, the agreement,
which will last for three years,
will provide the workers with
an overall increase in salary,
improved working conditions
and better interaction with the
Hotel Corporation via the
union. He added that although
the agreement took over a year
to complete, he feels as though
the negotiations went well in
terms of ensuring that both
sides received “the best possi-
ble outcome.”

If the FNM cannot be trusted

THE College of the Bahamas

art programme has received.a, .

$15,000 boost through the dona-
tion of glass blowing equipment
from the RBC FINCO.

COB will now be able to

offer a glass blowing course to:,

students.

The donation is particularly
significant, because it will be
the only one of its kind in the

region,said Denton Brown,
COB’s vice president of admin- ©

istration and finance.

He said that the college is
pleased to accept the gift as it is
an opportunity to further devel-
op the art programme’s cur-
riculum.

Mr Brown pointed out that

as the college moves toward
university status, it is important
to ensure that the arts are not
left behind.

Antonius Roberts, director
of RBC FINCO’s summer art
programme and former lecturer
at the college, explained that
the students in the programme
have been learning about glass

_ blowing for the first time this

past summer.

He said glass blowing is a fine
art, but very expensive.

Mr Roberts thanked the bank
for the donation.

He also noted that Christo-
pher Taylor from the Rhode
Island School of Design was
able to fly to the Bahamas and
teach Bahamian students about
glass blowing,

Nat Beneby, the managing



director of finance at RBC FIN-
CO, said that the company has
always been very pleased to
help Bahamians develop their
natural talents. He said the
company hopes the introduc-
tion of glass blowing into the
curriculum will spark career
opportunities in the field.

Following the official presen-
tation, COB student Jonathan
Murphy presented the bank
representatives with a glass
sculpture made during Mr Tay-
lor’s visit to Nassau.

Maxwell Wildgoose, another
student, demonstrated the use
of the equipment.

For the past 14 years, the
bank has conducted its summer
art workshop programme in
partnership with COB using the
art resources of the institution.

HROUGHOUT

our lifetime, which

is nearing the bib-

lical three score

and ten-year
mark, we have encountered
countless challenges that we
were able to overcome through
the grace of God.

Given our sinful nature, that
grace is definitely undeserved
favour. But, after all, we serve a
compassionate and forgiving
God.

By the time we had reached
our 15th birthday, both our par-
ents had already died — our
mother having passed away in
1945, when we were just seven
years old. Fortunately for us,
our sister Miriam, who was nine
years older, became the mother
figure in our life.

A year after our father’s
death in 1953; Canon David
John Pugh not only commenced
his 41-year ministry as priest in

charge of St Anne’s Church in...
Fox Hill, but also filled the ‘role ©

of father figure to us for more
than a half-century thereafter.
When we look back on all
that we have achieved thus far
in life — both personally and in
the wider community — we can-
not help but give God thanks
for having sent Miriam and
Canon Pugh to fill such impor-
tant roles in our development
into adulthood and beyond.
Although both of them have
since passed on, we continually
thank God for the positive role

models they provided us dur-
ing their earthly sojourn.

Thus it was against this back-
drop that, a decade ago, fol-
lowing the main mass one Sun-
day morning, we were shocked
to hear a young man passion-
ately expounding to some of his
peers under the almond tree at
the entrance to our church his
conviction that there was no
God.

While we were definitely sur-
prised by his revelation, what
really astounded us was the fact
that we had known four gener-
ations of the young man’s fam-
ily — and they all had been pil-
lars of our church.

Not wishing to embarrass the
young man before his friends,

we elected instead to write him »

a letter refuting his argument
that there was no God, while —
at the same time — reminding
him of the countless occasions
he had called upon the very
God he was now denying to
assist him in making it to col-
lege.

There is a term that ade-
quately defines this sad mode
of human behaviour.’ However,
out of respect to our readers,
we shall refrain from employ-
ing it here. Nevertheless, suf-
fice it to say that many human
beings have a habit of calling
upon God in times of want or
trouble, then attempting to go it
alone once those challenges
have been overcome.

that occurred during the evacu-

Houston, Texas, as Hurricane
Rita was approaching that
American city.

A bus loaded with elderly
patients caught afire on the
highway and the situation wors-

some of them exploded in the
horrible inferno. Although
some 24 of the elderly passen-

others — including a 101-year-

brave rescuers who rose to the
occasion. Surely, God had a

hand in saving the lives of those .

who were rescued.

Our next example is rather
personal in nature and we wish
to share the same with our read-

Hurricanes Frances and Jeanne

had spread beyond the prostate,
an.operation to address the
same was not recommended.
We were given two other

ences with both procedures by
two of our close family mem-
bers, we decided against them,
electing instead to pray to God
for His divine intervention.
That intervention came when
our urologist Dr Joseph Evans
gave us yet another alternative,
the use of a drug called Hon-
van that had been taken off the
market more than a decade ear-
lier. Before returning to practise
in Nassau after completing his
medical studies in the United
States, Dr Evans had practised
for a while with Dr John
Fitzgerald, a renowned urolo-
gist in Coral Gables, Florida.
We had been attending Dr
Fitzgerald at the Gables Med-
ical Center for our annual
prostate examination since our
39th birthday in 1977. However,
ever since his return to The
Bahamas, Dr Evans has been
our urologist. It was while in
Florida that Dr Evans had
become familiar with Honvan
and its effectiveness in the treat-
ment of prostate cancer. The
drug had been produced by
Ames, a small pharmaceutical
company in Connecticut. How-
ever, perhaps due to its effec-
tiveness, a larger drug manu-

As God would have it, Dr
Evans found ten doses of the
medication in his supplies and
we agreed to try the same. After
a three-month period, our PSA

than 120 points, as our cancer

this good news, we developed
two other non-related ailments
that required surgery, notwith-
standing what was left of our
cancer.

Thus it was that we entered
Doctors Hospital on the
evening of September 7th this
year and underwent two differ-

both procedures were successful —

the staff of Doctors Hospital for
the kind attention they afforded
us.

We wish to also publicly .
express our sincere gratitude to
the many persons who prayed
to God for our recovery, those
who visited us while in hospi-
tal and at home, those who tele-
phoned inquiring of our well-
being, and yet others who sent -
us get-well cards, fruit baskets
and flowers.

Above all, however, we give
God thanks and praise for
enabling us to recover so quick-
ly following those two major
operations. God is indeed good,
believe us. Thus, whenever any
of those misguided souls who
disclaim His existence tell you
and others that there is no pow-
er greater than the most edu-
cated among us — in essence,
that there is no God — just give
them this simple reply: “Yes,
my beloved, there is a God.
One who is both omnipotent
and omniscient — all powerful
and all knowledgeable.”

Think on these things.

Crime explosion

and it does not help the police

co-operate with us we have to
honest; we have to appear to
be consistent all the way
through, and our credibility as
an organisation must be seen to
be intact at all times,” said Mr
Hanna.

He apologised if it seemed
police were not informing the
public.. However, he said the
force could not be alarmist.

“We: have to be certain and
satisfied that we are not creating
paranoia and hysteria in a com-
munity. We have to always be

on the side of caution,” he said.

Mr Hanna said police are
acutely aware there has been
an upward spiral in armed rob-
beries in the Eastern area.

“We are concerned about
these matters. It seems as if a
group of persons, not always
acting in a group, approach
householders as they come
home,” he said.

They produce handguns, rob-
bing victims of money, jew-
ellery, and in some instances
taking their vehicles.

“Our response to this has
been that we have a special

FROM page one

team of officers doing covert
work,” Mr Hanna said.

Police had also sought to
increase their uniformed pres-
ence as well. He said many peo-
ple were often not alert to who
might be following them.

“If they see someone paying
particular attention to their
home or business, that should
cause them to wave a red flag
and not go home but to the
nearest police station,” added
Mr Hanna.

Similarly, police were con-
cerned that some people go to
the foodstore and other places
wearing expensive jewellery.

Crooks are casing these areas
and follow them home.

He said ex-convicts were also
returning to the Bahamas from
other jurisdictions.

It is understood that some
businesses are now considering
a joint approach to police com-
missioner Paul Farquharson to
express their anxieties.

An e-mail from a local realtor
was circulated among business-
es this week expressing alarm
at the crime upsurge. She
detailed half a dozen violent
crimes that occurred over the
last week alone.

land, he said the evidence sub-
mitted proves he has the ability
to obtain yearly Irish passports.

“This court ought not to take
the risk,” he said.

‘“It is imperative that the
Commonwealth of the
Bahamias does everything in its
power'to honour the: extradi-
tion treaty. It is incumbent on
this administration to take the
obligation very seriously.”

Mr Cumberbatch added that
Kozeny stands to lose much if
he is extradited, not only due
to a possible 15-year prison sen-
tence; but also because he
stands to lose substantial
amounts of money if forfeiture
proceedings are successful.

He reminded the court that
bail is not a constitutional right
in the Bahamas, as it is in other
Caribbean countries.

He said Kozeny is a mere res-
ident in the Bahamas, and
reminded the judge of the Privy
Council ruling in the Austin
Knowles case, in which the
judges mentioned that mere
residents with access to sub-
stantial cash were likely to flee
the country.

In rebuttal, Mr Davis said Mr
Cumberbatch “failed to identi-
fy any ground” that will sup-
port Kozeny not appearing for
these proceedings.

Mr Davis said that while the
Bail Act of 1994 makes the
granting of bail discretionary,
the grounds laid by Mr Cum-
berbatch were “tenuous and not
substantial’, as required by the
Bail Act.

Section 9 (1) of the Act, he

said, allows the judge to set con- |

ditions which the defendant
must follow in order to main-
tain his bail status.

.He said his client had been

Unfortunate BEC incident

living in the Bahamas in the
Lyford Cay community since
1994, From 1994 to 1998, he said
his client was travelling to and
from the Bahamas.

However, he said Kozeny
had not left the Bahamas since
1998.

Mr Davis said his client had
been fully aware of the possi-
bility of these proceedings com-
ing against him since 2003, and
he always maintained that he
would stay in the Bahamas and
defend himself in the proceed-
ings if or when they came along.

“There is no likelihood that
he will not be here (in court),”’
said Mr Davis.

During Friday’s proceedings,

Kozeny told the court that he

was not afforded the opportu-

nity to voluntarily. go to the US |

for trial.

However, when asked by:
Magistrate Bethel if he wished:

to do so, Mr Davis said he

would stay and fight the extra-

dition here.
His co-accused, Frederic

render to authorities at the FBI
office in Manhattan, New York,
on Friday morning.

They were arraigned at 1pm,
and will stand trial for a slew of
charges, including bribery and
the laundering of hundreds of
thousands of dollars.

Mr Cumberbatch told the

the British Virgin Islands, the
Cayman Islands, Panama, and
the Bahamas, among other
places.

Magistrate Bethel set Mon-
day as the day she will decide
whether or not to release
Kozeny on bail, as Mr Davis

was not ready on Friday to

explain why his client has so
many passports.

He also plans to present the
judge with cases, such as the

Enron case, in which bail was

granted to persons accused of

robbed as they got out of a taxi
at the hotel gateway.
The incident happened at

‘about 12.30am. The visitors

were held up at gunpoint and
robbed of cash and other items.

-This came a few days after
robberies at two restaurants
within a few yards of the hotel -
Indigo and Capriccio. At Indi-
go, several guests were robbed
of cash, credit cards and: jew-
ellery. Two women were raped

‘in the last week, one in Blair -

where neighbourhood security
patrols make it one of the safest
estates in Nassau - and the oth-
er just off Eastern Road.

The e-mail warned: “These
people are crazy and will rob
and rape you - no joke. These

are sick, crazy people. Be care-
ful-- even in the parking lots.
I’ve heard about women being
robbed in Harbour Bay park-
ing lot.”

The Sandals incident was one
of two robberies occurring in
or near hotels early yesterday.

Police press liaison officer
Walter Evans said two men, one
armed with a handgun, entered
the Town Hotel on George
Street around 1am and demand-
ed money from an employee.
The men reportedly escaped on
foot with a small amount of
cash. Of the Sandals incident,
police said a taxi passenger was
robbed of a small amount of
cash by a gunman who fled in a
dark vehicle waiting nearby.

B CHRIS BROWN meets ws adents on his visit to Eleuthera.

MIAMI! HERALD SPORTS

(Photo: Mario Dun canson/Tribune staff)

@ By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter

AS GOOD as Chris ‘Bay’
Brown turned out to be, he may

not have been the best track

“and field athlete i in his family.
During a visit to Eleuthera to
honour Brown. and _ the

“Bahamas World Championship

‘team on Thursday, it was
echoed throughout the island
- that his older brother, Joe, also

“had plenty of talent.

-. “He was excellent, but some-
- where along the line, he made
: some mistakes,” said his father,
“Harcourt Brown, who declined
to go into details.,“We’re try-

- ing to encourage; ‘him to come

-‘back.”

Chris ‘Bay’ Brows as he was

Puns in the

for Bahamian



Athlete and father pay tribute to older brother



affectionately nicknamed by his
late great-grandmother, Lillian
Elizabeth Gibson, starting run-
ning in. primary school in
Eleuthera, But it was at Preston
Albury High that he really blos-
somed.

After a scholarship fell

through, Brown came to Nas- .

sau and enrolled at RM Bailey
Secondary High.

He eventually was awarded
a scholarship at Norfolk State
University in Virginia and the
rest was history for the 800
metre runner (who still holds

the national record) before he

converted to a quarter-miler.

Over the years, the “land of.

freedom” has produced a
wealth of softball players,
including former national team
pitcher/coach/manager Doggie
Smith, who was recently induct-
ed into the International Soft-
ball Federation’s Hall of Fame.

The island can also take pride
in having four Bahamians play

_in the National Basketball

Association..Dexter Cambridge
was a one-time member of the
Dallas Mavericks. He’s now a
coach at Jordan Prince William
High School.

Brown, however, returned
home with the highest accom-
plishment - a silver medal as a
member of the men’s 4 x 400
relay team at the World Cham-
pionships in Helsinki, Finland
in August.

And, on his return, he spoke
of his brother.

“I respect him the most. He
was a talented guy. I’m sorry
that he didn’t get to go through

the sport the way I did,” Brown |

said. “But he certainly set the
pace for me to follow.”

As he returned home, Brown
was followed by Nathaniel

McKinney, Avard Moncur,
Andrae Williams and Troy
McIntosh, all of whom ran on
the relay team that secured the
silver behind the United States
and ahead of Jamaica in Helsin-
ki.

While those who lined the

.streets and participated in the

two ceremonies held in Gover-
nor’s Harbour and Rock Sound
were delighted to see their
“homeboy,” they warmly
received all the other members
of the team.

Olympic and world champion
Tonique Williams-Darling,

Cell:







quarter-miler Chriitine Amertil,
sprinters Chandra Sturrup, Tim-

icka Clarke and Philippa

Arnett-Willie, long jumper
Jackie Edwards and javelin
thrower Lavern Eve were all in
attendance.

Brown was lost for words try-
ing to sum up the support and
love that he and his team-mates
received.

“It’s good to know that the
whole island was there for us,”
said Brown as he eagerly
showed his team-mates where
he grew up in the “Deep
South.”

Brown’s coach American
Steve Riddick said it was unbe-
lievable to. watch the tremen-
dous support that Brown and
the rest of the athletes received.
