Wife claims there’s been
no action on physical
abuse complaints because
husband is an officer

& By TIFFANY GRANT
Tribune Staff Reporter

A WIFE claims police have
repeatedly failed to respond to
her complaints of physical abuse
against her husband because hei is
an officer in the force.

She has accused him of impris-
oning her and their children in
their home for two whole days —
and inflicting a cut on her fore-
head, which required 27 stitches.

The woman, who wished to
remain anonymous, said she has
filed five or six complaints about
the physical abuse she has
endured. These were recorded at
various police stations and the
police complaints unit.

“T have not had anyone call me
back, or as much as ask to hear
my side of the story,” she said.

The woman said her husband
beat her in front of the children
and, on one occasion, took the
phone out of the house and
locked her and the children inside
for two days. ;

She said they weren’t able to
get out because she never had a
key for the deadlock.

Later, she claimed, she and her
husband met with high-ranking
police officials, but nothing was
resolved.

“He’s done a crime and he’s
never been locked up. If an ordi-
nary man was married to me he
would have been locked away,”
she claimed.

“It hurts me to do what I have
to do, but. I would be saving
someone else’s life. I have tried
every avenue for the Royal
Bahamas Police Force ‘to assist
me,” she said.

The woman said she had with-















stood being slapped across the
face and kicked in the stomach.
One injury on her forehead need-
ed 27 stitches, she claimed.

Last year she left her belong-
ings and walked out of their home

with nothing apart from her chil-
dren.

“Maybe I thought this was a
bad dream and I’d ask him to go
to counselling to get help. I have
tried every avenue to make my
marriage work,” she said.

“I have never done anything
for him to have to hit me. I never
did anything to even get him
upset that he had to hit me. Iam
not going to make. excuses for
myself and sey ‘Oh, I made him
mad.”

“T.don’t care what kind of bad
day you had at work, it was never
that bad that you had to come
home and do these things to the
person you said you love,” she
said. ;

Chief Supt Hulan Hanna said
any complaint -made to police sta-
tions or the complaints unit had
been taken seriously and investi-
gations were ongoing.

Sometimes, he said, investiga-
tions involving domestic matters
could be protracted because there
was always another side of the
story. ’

Mr Hanna said if the woman:
needed an update on the matter,
she could inquire about the status
of her complaint to the Com-
plaints Unit or wherever else in
the force that she made a com-
plaint.

“T can assure her and members
of the public in general that,
regardless of where a person

US SECRETARY of State Condoleezza Rice will not be paying the
Bahamas an official visit in the near future.

Earlier this year US Embassy officials announced that plans were
underway for Dr Rice to visit the Bahamas sometime in March fol-
lowing Florida Governor Jeb Bush’s visit to the country in February.

Although the governor’s visit — at which such issues as LNG, edu-
cation and the two Cuban dentists were discussed — was considered a
success, there no longs seems to be any plans for the Secretary of
State’ S visit.

death penalty

A FRESH call was made yes-
terday for the enforcement of
the death penalty in the wake of
the murder of businessman Kei-
th Carey.

Evangelist Rex Major, retired
pastor of Grace Community
Church, said that murderers
should be brought to justice and
the judicial system has to be
drastically altered.

Mr Major was speaking at
Bahamas Faith Ministries dur-
ing Mr Carey’s funeral.

Mr Carey, 42, was gunned
down last Monday as he was
about to enter the Bank of the
Bahamas International on

Harrold Road to make a_

deposit.

Addressing hundreds of
mourners, Mr Major stressed
the urgency of finding Mr
Carey’s murderer. “Justice
delayed is justice denied,” he
said.

Mr Major said that it is unfair
that many victims and parents
of victims often have to wait for
long periods before justice is
served.

He also urged the congrega-

tion to speak out against all

injustices.

' “Have some ‘courage: in the
system, have some function.
Don’t be afraid to tell anyone



@ THE late Keith Carey was laid to rest yesterday

that they are wrong or you are
guilty.”

Mr Major said that persons
must begin to take responsibil-
ity for wrong actions and that
family members should not help
criminals avoid justice.

“Parents cannot hide the
murder inthe house. We must
now create for that kind of sit-
uation a heavy penalty. Any-
body seen as keeping someone
from apprehension must be
seen as thieves,” he said.

“God demands that the killer
die because he killed another.

We all know that those people
who are truly'convicted should
be dead now,” he added.

The retired pastor concluded

In brief —

Government
criticised for
stance on
homosexuals

HOMOPHOBIA and reli-
giously based opposition to
homosexuality is widespread in
the Bahamas, the US State
Department’s 2005 Country
Report stated.

The newly released report
criticised the Bahamian gov-
ernment for actively promoting
opposition to homosexuality.

The report read: “Although
homosexual relations between
consenting adults are legal,
there was no legislation to
address the human rights con-
cerns of homosexuals, lesbians,
bisexuals, or trans-gendered
persons.”

In September, the report said,
Miss Teen Bahamas was
stripped of her title after she
said that she was lesbian.

“Also in September, public
school teachers punished stu-
dents wearing clothing per-
ceived to identify them as
homosexual or advocates of
homosexuality,” it read.

The human rights report fur-
ther pointed out that there were
continued reports of job termi-
nations following disclosure of
sexual orientation, as well as
discrimination in the allocation
of housing.

Fun run in
memory of
beloved
teacher

THE Alumni’ of St
Augustine’s College (SAC) is
to host a fun-run walk to com-
memorate the memory of a
favourite teacher. ° °

According to Gino Narin,,
alumni president, the event ‘is
being held in an effort to keep
the legacy of Leviticus ‘Uncle
Low’ Adderley alive.

“Uncle Lou was a mentor to
numerous young men; a won-
derful role model,” he said.

’Mr Adderley succumbed ‘to
cancer on May 24, 2004 — two
months after his 70th birthday.

The beloved teacher and a
deacon was the SAC’s first lay
minister, dedicating more than
40 years to the institution.

In 1998, he was one of the
first Bahamians to receive the
National Order of Merit for his
contribution to athletics. ;

Mr Narin said the aim of the
walk is to reduce the school’s
fees and to renew friendships
among alumni. “We hope that a
number of people will attend,
particularly those he has
touched,” he said. '

The walk will be held on Sat-
urday March 11, 2006 and will
begin at the school’s pool.The
walk will proceed to Marathon
‘east, on to Prince Charles Drive
and finally back to the school.

Trophies will be awarded to
winners. Registration fees are
$15 for adults and $5 for stu-
dents.

Child abuse a ‘serious problem’

DESPITE declaring that
child welfare and education are
priorities, the Bahamas lacks
sufficient funding to maintain
and improve standards in these
fields, the US Department’s
2005 Country Reports on
Human Rights stated.

Released yesterday, the
report also pointed out-that
child abuse and neglect
remained serious problems for
the country.

Government schools were
criticised for lacking basic edu-
cational materials, and for

i being overcrowded and sub-

standard.

The report said that cultural
biases often forced unwed,
pregnant teenagers to leave
school, and that a “quasi-gov-
ernmental group” continues to

seek to create an alternative
school programme for these
girls.

“Both the government and
civic organisations conducted
public education programmes
aimed at child abuse and
appropriate parenting behav-
ior. However, child abuse and
neglect remained serious prob-
lems. During the summer
months, the Royal Bahamas
Defence Force operated a hot-
line in response to an increase
in the number of reports of
missing or exploited children,”
the report read.

It went on to state that the
Ministry of Social Services esti-
mated that only one-third of
child abuse cases were report-
ed.

The report acknowledged

that under Bahamian law, per-
sons who have contact with a
child they believe has been sex-
ually abused are required to
report their suspicions to
police.

However, it highlighted that
the same reporting require-
ment does not apply to cases of
physical abuse — which health
care professionals believed
occurred quite frequently in
2005.

Responsible

The report further said that
the Ministry of Social Services
is responsible for abandoned
children up to 18 years of age,
but has very limited resources.
at its disposal to take care of

Government to take over
airport on Long Island

m@ By PAUL TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter

MINISTER of Transport
and Aviation Glenys Hanna-
Martin announced that the
government will buy the Stella
Maris airport in Long Island
from its private owners for $1
after repairs to the runway are
completed.

Mrs Hanna-Martin said
work on the Stella Maris run-
way will be commissioned
immediately at a cost .of
$550,000.

In the interim, the Dead-
man’s Cay Airport will be used
to accommodate all air traffic
into Long Island and the min-
istry also plans to carry out
some cosmetic work on its run-
way and the surrounding area,
she said.

This plan was a source of
comfort to many residents of
the area, who felt that the clo-
sure of Stella Maris’, runway
would have dealt a dramatic
blow to the island’s fledgling
economy.

“As I speak, the Ministry of
Works is contracting with a pri-

?~ vate firm for the immediate

installation of perimeter fenc-
ing at the Deadman’s Cay air-
port. Efforts are being made
to acquire modular buildings
to establish temporary premis-
es to house Customs and Immi-
gration services.so as to estab-
lish Deadman’s Cay as a port
-of entry on a temporary basis.

i GLENYS Hanna-Martin

“Additionally a perimeter
road will be constructed along
the.eastern end of the runway
so as to allows homeowners to
access their homes as they cur-
rently now cross the runway in
vehicles and on foot to access
their homes,” Mrs Hanna-Mar-
tin said.

The minister said she was
forced to close the Stella Maris
Airport on February 24 after
the runway was found to be in
a state of “extreme” disarray.

Mrs Hanna-Martin explained
that a leading independent avi-
.ation expert from the US firm
Edwards and Kelcey conducted
an inspection of the runway.

“The independent expert
advised that his inspection of
the runway was conducted
immediately. after a brief rain
shower. The rain highlighted



the unevenness of the runway

and made it perfectly clear that -

large areas of standing water,
up to several inches deep,
existing on the runway. Stand-
ing water of this magnitude can
pose a hazard to the smaller
general aviation aircraft.

“In addition to the ponding
water, there were numerous
areas of longitudinal and trans-
verse rutting. Potholes were
noted throughout the length
of the runway, and the major-
ity of the runway surface was
badly cracked and crazed.

“There were areas where the
surface was producing loose
material that could damage
propellers and certainly could
cause damage to turbine air-
craft engines,” she said.

Mrs Hanna-Martins said that
according to the’report, the ter-
minal may have been built in
the wrong location, as any

“parked aircraft could be consid-

ered a hazard to landing planes.

“Tn the opinion of the author
the decision to close. the air-
port was justified. The Stella
Maris airport does not meet
the certification requirements

of either the FAA or ICAO,

nor does the terminal aircraft
parking apron,” she said.

The Ministry of Transport
and Aviation is still in the
process on finding a location
for a single airport capable of
handling both local and inter-
national air traffic to Long
Island.

Iraq’s insecure democracy

MUCH OF the Bush administration’s
hopes for Iraq, and the transformative pow-
ers of democracy in the Middle East, lie in the
ruins of the Askariya mosque’s golden dome
in the city of Samarra. For the bombing of the
mosque exposed clearly what America wants
so much to deny: that in the present climate

- of lawlessness there are ethnic and religious
tensions in Iraq that are simply not: going to
allow for the kind of democracy the admin-
istration naively envisioned.

A degree of hypocrisy was also exposed
after elections in both Iraq and the West
Bank and Gaza. Despite the president’s
rhetoric about freedom on the march, the
first thing the Bush administration did after
Hamas won its victory was to search about for
ways to undermine the will of the Palestinian
people as expressed in a free and fair election.
Plots were reportedly hatched with Israel to
make life so miserable for the Palestinians
that they would go back to the polls in anoth-
er election and throw the recently victorious
Hamas out. Secretary of State Condoleezza
Rice got on her plane and flew off to drum up
support for denying the Palestinians money.

Both tactics are extremely short-sighted,
for the Palestinians have shown time-and
time again that they put their pride and their
national aspirations ahead of their comfort. If
this policy is continued, the United States
will lose its leverage to help shape events in
the West Bank and Gaza, relinquishing the
field to Iran and the more radical elements in
the Sunni Arab world. And then Hamas will
be even further away from recognizing Israel
or forswearing violence.

The old Israeli adage that “the Palestinians
must be made to understand in the deepest

recesses of their consciousness that they are:

a- defeated people,” as an Israeli army chief of
staff once expressed it; has never worked and
isn’t going to work now.

And no sooner did the Iraqis make their
choices in an acceptably fair election than
the Americans started to tell them what
America wanted in the way.of an Iraqi gov-
ernment. America’s capable and hard-work-
ing ambassador, Zalmay Khalilzad, was not
wrong in stressing that a government of
national unity was the best way for Iraq to
proceed, but to go public with the impotent
threat that the United States would with-
draw its support of the new Iraqi govern-

ment if it didn’t accede to America’s wishes
was simply a crude exercise in imperial
manipulation and humiliation that, in the
end, will do more harm than good. Even if he
gets his way, Khalilzad’s tantrum will simply
de-legitimize the results in the eyes of the
Iraqi people as the work of American pup-
ets.

Khalilzad is not wrong in his assessment
that sectarian militias will lead to “war-
lordism,” but the chance to talk the Iraqis
out of maintaining militias went by the board
with Donald Rumsfeld’s catastrophic failure
to secure the country after the US invasion.

‘For the classic pattern when a state falls apart,

and when people lack security, is for them to
fall back and rely upon what political psy-
chologists call the “survival group.”

It is well known that when a group feels
threatened it defines itself in the narrowest of
terms to distinguish friend from foe. It is only
when the group feels less threatened that it
can reach out to others to form a broader
definition of national purpose.

American ambassadors can threaten the

- Traqis all they want, but without security

Iraqis are simply not going to give up the
means of protecting their particular survival
group, their militias. And a broader definition

_ of national purpose won’t be possible as long

as there is no security. Nothing could have
made that point-more strongly than the after-
math of the golden dome bombing.

I remember the late Harvard psychologist
John Mack telling me that the psychological
functions served by identification with a sur-
vival group “are common to all conflicts; sur-
vival and a sense of self-worth. These are all
fundamental psychological principles, a sense
of having power versus powerlessness.”

. “At bottom, our survival group ... defines
our sense of self. Any political thinker who
seeks a fellowship of mankind must recognize
the psychological meaning of the identity of
self. Failure to do so will limit such concepts
as brotherhood of man to philosophical and
utopian visions and imaginings.”

And I am sorry to say that it is precisely the
“utopian visions and imaginings” of the Bush
administration that got us into this disaster in
the first place.

EDITOR, The Tribune
I LOVE to read The Tribune

-- daily, as I find your paper to

be well organised, balanced
and provide valuable content
on a variety of subject matters.

However, as a proud
Bahamian, I am somewhat
offended at the editorial stance
you have taken to support

~ sending these two‘ Cuban doc-
- tors to the United States to be

reunited with their families.

‘I have been travelling to
Cuba for the past 10 years. I
too, had preconceived notions
about how the people lived and
were being treated in their
country. Much of my misun-
derstanding has come from the
news received from the Amer-
ican media.

I have travelled throughout

Cuba and have many friends

there. I have never heard, seen
or have been told about any of
them, that they were being
politically victimised or knew
of others who were.

The main concern of the’

Cuban people is that they have
little means of earning money

_ as the state controls the econ-

omy and wages average from
US$7 to US$50 per month.
The main reason that they seek
to leave for other countries is
to make a better life and to
support their families. If they
could make a good income,

~ most would not leave. Cubans

are allowed to leave legally by
marriage or by invitation.
Many are living in Europe and
other countries. Those who

choose to go to the United.

States; do so because the
Cubans living there sell them
on the idea that Miami is par-
adise.

Many who flee, find that the

.. United States do not accept

their diplomas, certificates,
degrees or professional certi-
fication and have to go to
school all over again. Others
find that they have to work two
and three minimum wage jobs
to make ends meet.

The aggressive political
stance by Florida politicians
and their Congress persons
have caused the suffering to
intensify on the Cuban peo-
ple. Cuban-Americans can no
longer send monies monthly
to their families in Cuba.
Their visits are restricted to
once in every three years. The
Cuban government has to go
through European banks to
pay its bills in United States
dollars. Most banks and coun-

tory, it is clear that for the last
40 years, since America has
had an economic embargo on
that country, which they had
to find ways and means to sur-

vive. The state assumed con-_
’ trol of the economy and they

resorted to a one party political
system. Before this, they were
under a dictatorship, where
you had the wealthy and the
poor and discrimination
between the races was ram-
pant. Cuba was America’s

' playground and its economy

was intertwined with Ameri-
ca’s.

Since its current President
took over under a socialist
form of government, they had
to seek out ways to survive,

Bahamas. This. caused. hard-
ship as their husbands had to
travel back and forth to main-

no.

Attack on ‘repackaged’ policies

@ By CARA BRENNEN .
Tribune Staff Reporter

PROMISES made in last
month’s Speech from the
Throne are nothing more than
“old wine in new bottles” and
are proof that the PLP gov-
ernment has failed to keep its
word to the Bahamian people,
according to FNM Senator
Carl Bethel

Mr Bethel told the Senate
yesterday that he had counted
more than the thirty promises
and plans made by the gov-
ernment, which were merely
the same plans promised in its
first Speech from the Throne
delivered in May, 2002.

He claimed that Prime Min-
ister Perry Christie merely
took the unfulfilled portions
of the first session of his par-
liament and renamed them.

Giving an example, he said
that in 2002 it was the respon-
sibility of the Ministry of
Financial Services and Invest-
ments to act as an investment
board for Bahamians, and not
just for foreign investors.

He said that the newly pro-
posed Domestic Investment
Board from last month’s
speech is just a “repackaging”
of the ministry’s department
with the same mandate.

“Same old wine dressed up
in a new bottle,” he said.

Senator Bethel said this was

Senator criticises PLP for ‘unfulfilled’ promises



not the only case of passing off
old policies as new initiatives.

He said that were many of
these such “new” promises

throughout the Speech, includ-

ing the proposed legislation
for the integrity in public life
act, and legislation to regulate
the time shares industry.

Assurances to develop a
tourism development zone
and to revive dyifig Family
Island economies were also
unfilled promises from the first
speech, he said.

The senator added that gov-
ernment had also failed in its
promise to build a cultural vil-
lage at Arawak Cay, and to
conduct an intense campaign
in major offshore markets to
attract a more sizable share of
the international market.

Mr Bethel further claimed
that the government made no
effort to improve the e-com-
merce industry of the Bahamas.

He said that there were
countless more examples of
failed promises he could give.

“In your personal life your
words should mean something,
but even more in your public
life a government’s word
should mean something.

“Tt is astonishing to read the

which the government has sim-

ernment makes a commitment
it should with everything in its

the senator said.

Mr Bethel continued by saying
that the Speech from the Throne
suffered from the same problems
which appeared to affect the
prime minister: “A lack of qual-
ity and substance has been a hall-

mark of his party’s governance of
our country. It (the speech) is
full of sound and fury.”

He said that while Bahami-
ans may have appreciated the
pomp and pageantry at the
opening of parliament, and had
been glad to see newly appoint-
ed Governor General Arthur
Hanna, “they paid little or no
attention to the actual context
of the speech.”

Incentives urged
for GB businesses

‘@ By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Staff Reporter

THE government needs to
ensure that no part of Grand
‘Bahama is left behind in the dri-
ve for.economic prosperity,
Senator Caleb Outten told the
Senate yesterday.

Senator Outten said that
while he agrees with this year’s
Speech from the Throne, which
suggested that the county is in
“remarkably robust condition”,
he would like to see special
incentives for business owners
‘in west Grand Bahama.

“T am certain the business
owners of west Grand Bahama
would love to enjoy some of the
benefits of our Freeport coun-
terparts as it relates to bringing
in supplies and equipment. I
believe that now is the oppor-



tune time for duty free conces-
sions from government to be
extended to the west.”

Terminal

Mr Outten added that while
the number of cruise ships call-
ing into Lucayan Harbour con-
tinues to increase, a govern-
ment-owned cruise ship termi-
nal on the island would make
even more of an impact.

“T see Grand Bahama being
positioned to become a home
port to the fastest growing
cruise ship industry — it increas-
es airlift and cruise ship visitors
in one smart move,” he said.

Mr Outten stressed that more
has to be done to create entre-
preneurial opportunities for
Grand Bahamians in general.



He said that this should
include securing deeds and titles
for generational land dwellers,
as many persons who wish to
build businesses on their prop-
erties are denied a chance
because they cannot secure the
papers to use as collateral.

“It is imperative that we
ensure a thriving small business
sector. .. as we develop and
welcome the foreign investor
we really must not forget or
downplay the power of giving
areal chance to small business
dreams within our borders. It
is the backbone of a flourish-
ing economy.”

Also speaking yesterday was
Senator Yvette Turnquest. She
said that Bahamians need to be
aware of the opportunities for
entrepreneurial investment,that

Leaders must listen to themselves

EADERS really must
listen to themselves
when they speak. They hear
themselves, that’s for certain, but
they must also listen to them-
selves. If they do, they will speak
reasoning rather than rhetoric.
At the Grand Bahama Busi-
ness Outlook, I, like many oth-
ers, listened to Prime Minister
Perry Christie’s keynote speech.
Given the lateness of the politi-
cal hour and the economic hard-
ship suffered by the island over
the past several years due to
storms and other factors, one lis-
tened for a well thought out,
clear and definitive statement
from the nation’s chief execu-
tive that would speak honestly
to needs of Grand Bahamians.
If Prime Minister Christie lis-
tened to himself speak, I believe
that even he would agree that
he could have done a better job
addressing the Grand Bahama
business community. Why?

FORGET ROYAL OASIS?

Fis: it really was unrea-
. sonable for the PM to
tell Grand Bahama to “forget
Royal Oasis”, even if he sug-
gested, jokingly of course, that
on the basis of what he does or
does not do about it, Grand
Bahamians could vote for or
against him.

The fact is that the closure of

YOUR CONNECTION”

that economic enterprise has
struck a critical blow to Grand
Bahama’s economy, affecting the
lives of thousands of families,
from the 1,600 displaced workers
to the many businesses that ben-
efited from their spending as well
as the money generated by their
former workplace.

Forgetting Royal Oasis is dif-

‘ficult, yea impossible, for peo-

ple who live on Grand Bahama
and who must drive their high-
priced gasoline vehicles, catch

. struggling bus franchises or walk

depressingly pass the moribund
property that once represented
the economic mainstay of the
commercial district in which it
rested.

Forget Royal Oasis! One
would have to have a fit of
amnesia to do so - a convenience
for a governing politician, no
doubt, but hardly commonsense
for a struggling people.

LOOK TO GINN?

Ses the PM asked
Grand Bahama to look
to GINN’s purported $3 billion
investment. The PM may not
realise it, but the promise of
GINN for Grand Bahamians is
just that, a promise, and for an
island that has, like a prom date,
been waiting a while for some-
thing real to happen again,
promises simply don’t cut it.
Besides, Grand, Bahamians

are beginning to come to terms
with even the promise of GINN.
They realise that GINN repre-
sents, by its own-and the gov-
ernment’s admission, a 20-year
proposition.

They understand that the pro-
ject has substantial infrastruc-
tural preparation to do before it

that will take months and per-
haps years to complete.

Grand Bahamians are aware
that GINN will represent in the
first instance primarily construc-
tion jobs and that those jobs will
be provided at a pace set by the
success of the GINN Corpora-
tion in selling the thousands of
acres of Bahamian land pur-
chased at a substantial discount
for a premium to wealthy for-
eigners, which is itself a matter of
speculation.

Even so, construction jobs,
while helpful for sure, will not
benefit those many unemployed
in Grand Bahama who have no
skills in the area. Further,
Grand Bahamians know that
the GINN Corporation’s invest-
ment will not be anywhere near
$3 billion and that that figure
represents the potential value

of all the homes, condos and
hotels built by GINN and others
on property in West End over
20 years if, and that is a big ‘if’,
all is built.

GINN’s investment may be at
most some $500 million, which is
substantial in itself but hardly $3
billion. Finally, Grand Bahami-
ans know that GINN promises to
create an estimated 4,000 jobs
over 20 years. That is about 200
jobs per year.

That is hardly an economic

NG

_ impact akin to Atlantis, which

in its first phase within just a cou-
ple of years created some 5,000
permanent jobs. To ask Grand
Bahamians to forget Royal
Oasis, a business that provided
permanent jobs for some 1,600
people for years, and look to
GINN, a speculative investment
that proposes to provide 200 jobs
a year for 20 years, is simply
naive.

TAKE ADVANTAGE OF

WHAT OPPORTUNITIES? |

hird, the PM preached,

and I mean literally
preached, that the challenge was
to find a way for Grand Bahami-
ans to “take advantage of the
economic opportunities being
provided”. —

Grand Bahama was the last
place in the Bahamas where the
PM needed to provide such a
sermon. The fact of the matter is
that in 1992, eighty per cent of
the licensees of the Grand
Bahama Port Authority were
foreigners and 20 per cent
Bahamians.

Today, just the opposite is the
case, as 80 per cent are Bahami-
ans and 20 per cent foreigners.
Grand Bahamians are entrepre-
neurial and if there is a business
opportunity to be had, they will
seize it.

What they need is a robust
economy with real investments

__in the ground.

They don’t need announce-

““ments, funny investment arith-

metic or sermons about doing

what they know how to do.

Grand Bahamians need the
Port Authority to go out and get
investors, as it does, and for the
government to be business-like
in executing its role in facilitating
those investments.

Incidentally, it was really cal-
lous that in the end, struggling
Grand Bahamians were told to
take advantage of opportunities
that did not now exist in their
island while the PM taunted
them about the prospects of an
unprecedented announcement
he was getting ready to make
that would dramatically change,
for the better; the prospects of
Mayaguana.

In the Bahamas, Bahamians,
in proportions similar to that
found elsewhere in world, take
advantage of business opportu-
nities. In the most highly devel-
oped economies in the world,
less than 20 per cent of citizens
are entrepreneurs and the failure
rate among this relatively small
segment of the population is as
high as 50 per cent.

It is strange to hear our polit-
ical leaders speak of having
Bahamians own more of the
economy while in the same
breadth patting themselves on
the backs for approving foreign-
ers’ ownership of more of it. .

.They ask Baliamians to take
advantage of opportunities that
foreigners are providing while
in the same breadth preaching
about our need to affirm our
independence.

This talk of owning our econ-

omy comes from leaders who
did not own much or any of it
before they took office and, as
the saying goes, a man can only
lead me as far as he himself has
gone.

Leaders must truly listen to
themselves. In doing so, they will
learn to speak more wisely and
will in fact instruct themselves
in prudent paths before setting

- out to try to instruct others in

the same.
, Ihave no beef with the prime
minister. I believe he means well
but meaning well is not the same
as knowing what well means.
At the Grand Bahama Busi-
ness Outlook he said that he was
now hearing the footsteps of

those opposite him and had less
“patience with Lehman Brothers:;

in its hold uP on the Royal Oasis
issue.

Well, there are many Bahami-
ans who are hearing the pitter
patter of lost opportunity and
who are growing impatient with
those entrusted to efficiently pro-
vide the same but who appear
not to be doing so.

DR NOTTAGE TOEING
THE LINE

W hen Dr Nottage
decided to return to

the PLP one expected that he
would be a team player but I
must confess, I did not expect
him to start so soon and so
incredibly.

Dr Nottage, who before
rejoining the PLP lamented the
pace of its progress and its dis-

‘organised approach to gover-

nance, said the Christie admin-
istration was being unfairly crit-
icised for the manner of its gov-
ernance and that it was taking
as much time:as it was in order
to plan rather than “shoot from
the hip” like the previous admin-
istration did.

Besides the many things that
contradict this statement, it did
seem odd coming from Dr Not-
tage, given his recent political
voyage.

Would anyone suggest it was
planning that led Dr Nottage to
leave the PLP after being defeat-
ed by Mr Christie in a leader-
ship bout; form a new political
organisation based on a philoso-.
phy of governance that he said
was different than that of both
the PLP and:the FNM; contest.a
general election against the PLP
and the FNM;.and: then aban-
don his leadership of the organ-
isation’he founded to return to
the PLP, being unable to con-
vince many of his key’ leaders to
follow him?

I have a great deal’ of respect
for Dr Nottage but I would hope
that he maintains credibility in
his pronouncements even as he
tries to balance the difficult busi-
ness of toing the party line with
speaking truth and being rea-
sonable.

Poultry products |
ban considered

CONSIDERATION will be
given to imposing a ban on the
importation of eggs and poul-
try products into the Bahamas.

This announcement was
made following a surprise
inspection by Minister of Agri-
culture and Marine Resources
Leslie Miller to the Grand
Bahama Food Company’s
chicken farm on Monday.

Mr Miller said he was
impressed by the farm’s egg and
poultry production facilities.

The farm, located on the
Grand Bahama Highway, sup-
plies the bulk of the eggs and
poultry consumed in Freeport,
the Northern Bahamas and
New Providence.

The minister’s visit followed
complaints by Nassau traders
and consumers who said they
are being supplied with sub-
standard eggs from Grand
Bahama.

Complainants reported
receiving “cracked, broken and
dirty eggs” according to a gov-
ernment statement.

The minister’s party was
received at the farm by owner
Minas Vardaoulis, who led a

- tour of the production facilities.

Mr Vardaoulis told the min-
ister that the farm has the
capacity, | to supply all the eggs

and poultry consumed in the
Bahamas, and indicated that a
number of hen houses, now
unused, could be put into pro-
duction to handle increases in
the demand for eggs.

Mr Miller declared at the end
of his visit that he considers the
production facilities at the farm
“first-class” and said that the

whole question of eggs and
poultry will be reviewed by his
ministry with a view to ending
the importation of these prod-
ucts.

“Having seen similar opera-
tions in the United States,” the
minister pointed out, “I don’t
think there is a farm anywhere
in the United States, compara-
ble in size, that has the capabil-
ity, the machinery, ingenuity
and inventory as does the
Grand Bahama farm.”

“T think it’s a first-class oper-
ation that any Bahamian should
be proud to show any foreigner
who has a farm in Florida and
elsewhere. I am very impressed
with what I’ve seen, and there is
nothing wrong with the local
eggs or chicken produced here.

“A new day is going to come
in 'the poultry and egg industry,
and the Grand Bahama farm
should see an upsurge in bird
and egg purchases by all
importers in New Providence,
including the major food stores
and farms seeking permits from

the mamisty to import Cees. re be

“This meeting has significant
importance for the formulation
of policy that would govern the
development of youth in the
Caribbean and also in the Com-
monwealth countries and,
indeed, the world,” Mr Bren-
nen said.

He noted that the visit by the
Commonwealth Secretariat and
regional representative is to
ensure that all the administra-
tive arrangements thé host
country is responsible for can
be “practically” implemented

to ensure a successful meeting. .

‘Director of Youth Autherine
Turnquest said the significance
of the meeting is that it also will
be attended by youth delegates
from each Commonwealth
country. .

She added that both meetings
are being held in May, which is
designated as National Youth
Month.

The CYMM is being held
under the theme “Empowering
Youth for the Eradication of
Poverty, HIV/AIDS and
Crime”. - a

“What is also very exciting is
that the meeting will allow the
Bahamas the opportunity to
continue in its role in the dis-
cussions on youth empower-
ment and development in the
region and in the Common-
wealth,” Ms Turnquest said.

“Tt will provide the Ministry
of Youth, Sports and Housing
with the opportunity to engage
in a number of bilateral
exchanges on matters of mutu
al interest. It will also refocus
the attention of the Bahamian
public on the importance of
youth, especially iu light of the
implementation ot the National
Youth Programme.”

The youth delegates will dis-
cuss the progress and achieve-
ment of the Commonwealth
Youth Programme (CYP) in
four strategic areas — Youth
Enterprise Development,
Youth Networks and Gover-
nance, Youth Participation and
Youth Work Education and
Training — as mandated by the
Commonwealth Heads of Gov-
ernment Meeting (CHOGM).

A new CYP strategic plan for
2006-2008 will be presented to

ministers for their considera-

tion and approval. The meet-
ing will discuss the framework
for reviewing CYP’s Plan of
Action for Youth. Empower-
ment up-to 2015. ,

“What this meeting would
also do is express the govern-
ment’s serious commitment to
young people and youth devel-
opment and further enhance the
Bahamas’ reputation as the
principal site for international
conferences and boost the econ-
omy in general,” Ms Turnquest
said.

Ignatius Takawira, director
and head of youth affairs Com-
monwealth Youth Programme,
said he was pleased with the
Bahamas’ prepar ations for the
meeting.

Mr Takawira said the Com-
monwealth Youth Ministers
Meeting has a special focus in
the Commonwealth Secretari-
at, in that it is a programme set
up by governments to look at
the very important constituents
of the Commonwealth, for the
present and the future.

He added that for most of the
developing member states, the
majority of the population are
very young and “unless positive
development is undertaken in
young people as the future of
their country, most developing

According to Mr Takawira,

such as poverty,
1S and crime are chal-

tries.

“If we are talking about
development, if we are talking
about the future, we have to
make sure the young people are
in the centre,” he said.

He added that, during the -
CYMM, young people also
would be invited to discuss
issues peculiar to them, and the
solutions to those problems.

“We hope to have a very suc-
cessful ministers” meeting result-
ing in programmes that would
go some way to address issues
affecting young people in the
‘Bahamas, in the region, in the
Commonwealth as a whole, and
a contribution to the world
effort against poverty,

Takawira said.

The Privy Council has gone some

imposed on a convicted defendant
should be proportionate to the
gravity of the crime of which he
has been convicted.

Second, it ruled that the criminal
culpability of those convicted of
murder "varies very widely".

"Under an entrenched and cod-
ified constitution on the Westmin-
ster model, consistently with the
tule of law, any discretionary judg-
ment on the measure of punish-
ment which a convicted defendant
should suffer must be made by the
judiciary and not by the execu-

They said that by the-end of the

the nineteenth centuries, only a

_ small proportion of those sen-

tenced to death, even for murder,
were executed in England and
Wales. -

Edward Fitzgerald, QC, repre-

that it is important that judges
should have a discretion in apply-

Mr Glinton said that if Bahami-

THE Bahamas has been
named by scientists as a habitat

where indigenous mammal.

species are at risk of becoming
extinct.

This; according to one local
environmentalist, is the result
of the country’s policy of
“uncontrolled development”

and the failure of legislators to’

adequately protect delicate
species.
The science, engineering and.

eae news website “Scen- , »

a”

reported yesterday that
‘eaeerchors from Imperial Col-
lege London have compiled a
list of countries where animals
now exist safely but face a
“latent risk” of extinction.
“Islands. situated from
Indonesia to the South Pacific,
the Bahamas and Greenland

, were among the most delicate.
' regions,” the report said.

It said that the team of sci-

_entists identified species with

the highest latent risk by com-
paring current extinction risk
with the level of risk suggested
by biological traits.

“Areas where land mammals

thrive are expected to suffer
from the growth of the human
population and changes in habi-
tat,” the report said.

-No Bahamian species were
specifically mentioned in the

‘ report, however Sam Dun-
combe, president of, the envi- .
ronmental agency: ReEarth, said -
‘that a large indigenous rodent

known as the hutia, the funnel-
eared bat and the Bahamian

‘raccoon are some of the land

mammals that could become
candidates for extinction.
This, she said, is thanks to the
willingness of successive
Bahamian governments to

“rape and pillage” the environ-

ment.
“We have 22 species of
marine mammal. in the

Bahamas. Because they have
no protection from things like
harmful noise, they may also be
at risk,” she added.

The government recently
passed the Marine Mammal
Protection Act — however the
legislation was criticised by
environmentalists.as ineffec-
tive?

-The Scenta report said that
scientists are hoping conserva-
tion agencies will be able to pre:

-vent declines. inthe at-risk
‘regions “before it is too late”.

Imperial College biologist
Marcell Cardillo was quoted as
saying: “We wanted to deter-
mine which areas are going to
be the most sensitive to human
impact so we can prioritise con-
servation projects.

“Conservation is a crisis Se

‘cipline. Because there are so

many species on the verge of
extinction, that’s where most of
the effort goes.”

BAHAMIAN potcake star
“Amigo” has returned from
New Orleans where he was
King Of Barkus in the annual
animal Mardi Gras Parade.

Amigo has had a busy year
taking his message abroad as

the star of the Humane Society
of the United States (HSUS)
BEKiND Campaign.
Accompanied by his
“human,” Frances Singer Hay-
ward, Amigo, dressed in a gold
crown and purple cape, sailed

ince October 2003,
and the fuel sur-
harge, which is








down Canal Street on his spe-
cially built king’s float.

Huge crowds attended the
event, one of the most popular
parades of Mardi Gras.

To the music of Dixieland
bands and shouts of “hail Ami-
go” and “hail the king” the for-
mer stray potcake from Grand
Bahama, happily acknowledged
the crowds of fans.

This year, the parade took on
a special poignancy as proceeds
benefited animal welfare organ-
isations in Louisiana which are
still dealing with the displace-
ment of thousands of animals
following Hurricane Katrina.

Amigo has been very active
in rescue efforts as the star of
BEKiND, which raised hun-
dreds of thousands of dollars
for the HSUS Disaster Relief
Fund through the sale of the
BEKiND ‘cause collars’ (dog
collars) and matching wrist-
bands for their human compan-
ions...‘

In addition, the Amigo
Express Rescue Expedition
travelled to New Orleans in ear-
ly October, bringing back a
coachload of dogs and cats to
the Animal Rescue Fund facili-
ties in East Hampton, New
York.

Amigo has appeared on
CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News
and has been featured in
numerous newspaper and mag-
azine articles.

In early December Amigo

BJ OHN Barrow

on approach to West

@ EGYPT
Cairo

IT is not just East and West
that are divided over contro-
versial cartoons of the Prophet
Muhammad. Two of the most
popular Muslim preachers on
Arab television are feuding bit-

terly over whether dialogue or ©

protest is the best approach in
the clash of civilizations, accord-
ing to Associated Press.

In the pro-dialogue corner is
Amr Khaled, who has become
wildly popular among young
Muslims and women for his
youthful style and his sermons
applying Islam to the day-to-
day cares of modern life.

The 38-year-old Khaled is
heading to Denmark — the heart
of the controversy — for a con-
ference on Friday between
Christian and Muslim religious
leaders aimed at discussing the
fallout of the prophet cartoons.

But for Sheik Youssef el-
Qaradawi — a 79-year-old cleric
who hosts a weekly show on the
Arab satellite station Al-Jazeera
— the trip to Copenhagen looks
like a surrender.

“Dialogue about what?” el-
Qaradawi said on Al-Jazeera.
“You have to have a common
ground to have a dialogue with
your enemy. But after insulting
what is sacred to me, they
should apologise,” he added.

“The dialogue that Amr
Khaled and his group, the so
called new preachers, is break-
ing with the consensus,” he said.

The split between the two
prominent tele-clerics has
touched a wider debate over
how to deal with the West and
promote the Islamic world’s
interests.

The cartoons — first published
in a Danish paper last Septem-
ber then reprinted in European
papers in January and Febru-
ary — sparked a wave of protests
around the Arab and Islamic
world. Some turned violent,
with protesters killed in Libya
and Afghanistan and several
European embassies attacked.

The cartoons were seen as an
insult to Muhammad, depicting
him as violent and primitive.
Sunni Muslim tradition bans
any image of the prophet, since
depicting him risks insulting him
or encouraging idolatry.

The protests have largely sub-
sided amid calls by Islamic and
Western leaders for a stop to vio-
lence. But the bitterness remains
on both sides: Some Muslims feel
the West intentionally sought to
insult Islam’s most revered fig-

ure, while some in the West see ~

Muslims as violently seeking to
stifle free speech.

Last month, Khaled and a
conference of 40 Islamic schol-
ars said it was time to “move
on to the stage of discussion.”

“The deep-rooted solution of
this problem is through dialogue
to reach an understanding and
coexistence between the
nations,” Khaled said.

For Khaled, the cartoons con-
troversy is an opportunity to
engage with the West rather
than continue longtime clashes
over the grievances many Mus-
lims feel toward Europe and the
United States.

"We have to lay a future base
to build our own renaissance,”
Khaled told Associated Press
on Wednesday.

“There are two schools of
thought. One is that all of our
actions should be reaction to
what happened to us in the past
20 years, which is a lot. The oth-
er school wants the Islamic
community to take the initia-
tive to plan for the coming 20
years,” he said.

“God be with you Amr
Khaled,” the independent
Egyptian weekly Al-Dustour
said in a front-page headline in
support of his;trip to Denmark.

Khaled has emerged as the
most prominent of a new gener-
ation of Islamic leaders — distinct
with his designer suits and trim
moustache, rather than the beard
and robes worn by traditional
clerics, such as el-Qaradawi.
~ Khaled started preaching
almost 10 years ago in social
clubs and gatherings in private
homes in Egypt. He drew
enthusiastic, young followers
from the middle and upper mid-
dle class with his moderate
advice and modern style.

He has a weekly programme

, on the Saudi religious channel

Iqraa, in which he avoids polit-
ical issues, telling stories about
the life of the Muhammad and
God’s mercy instead of punish-
ment.

His lack of formal religious
training has brought him criti-
cism from traditional clerics. He
studied accounting, though he is
currently pursuing Islamic stud-
ies in London.

El-Qaradawi — also Egyptian
— is known as a hardliner who
often weighs in on politics. He
has sparked controversy by con-
doning attacks on American

civilians in Iraq and issuing a-

fatwa religious. edict allowing
kidnappings in Iraq, though for-
bidding the killing of hostages.
His supporters in the feud
accuse Khaled of giving up
before the West makes conces-
sions over the cartoons issue.
“The Muslims’ uprising hasn’t
born fruit yet, and the West
wants us to get out of it without
any gains,” Egyptian columnist
Selim Azouz wrote Wednesday
in the Qatari daily Al-Raya.
Fahmi Howeidy, a prominent
Egyptian Islamic thinker who
writes in the Arab daily Asharq
al-Awsat, said Khaled was
weakening the Islamic world’s
hand by going to Denmark,
homeland of the newspaper that
sparked the controversy.
“Who should be approaching
whom?” he said. “The newspa-
per should approach the victim,
or Vice versa?"

sharing

& LONDON

THE governments of
Britain and Iréland are weigh-
ing “a number of possibilities”
for reviving a joint Catholic-
Protestant administration in
Northern Ireland, Irish Prime
Minister Bertie Ahern said
Wednesday after talks at 10
Downing Street, according to
Associated Press. '

Ahern, speaking after hour-
long talks with Prime Minis-
ter Tony Blair, said both gov-
ernments were trying their

-best to negotiate a compro-

mise between the two opposed

forces who would lead any,

Northern Ireland coalition: lan
Paisley's Democratic Union-
ists, who represent most of the
British Protestant majority,
and Gerry Adams’ Sinn Fein,
the Irish Republican Army-
linked party that represents
most Catholics.

- Those two parties remain

poles apart on whether North- ..

ern Ireland’s legislature should
be reconvened with no agree-

ment in place first for electing |

a cross-community adminis-
tration.

Sinn Fein demands.a firm -:
date for the 108-member leg- «

islature. to elect an adminis-
tration. The legislature has not
met since October 2002, when
power-sharing fell apart over

“an IRA spying scandal.

~ But the Democratic Union-

ists demand new rules that’

would allow the legislature to
operate on its own for months,
even years, without an admin-
istration being formed. Under
current rules, both parties in a
reconvened legislature must
elect an administration led by

both parties within six weeks —
otherwise the legislature
would collapse.

Last week, British and Irish
officials were drafting a for-
mula that leaned in the Demo-
cratic Unionists’ favor. But
both governments retreated
from their recommendation,
and decided not to publish it
Wednesday as originally
planned, because of fierce crit-
icism from Sinn Fein.

“Today we were looking at
a number of possibilities,”
Ahern said outside Downing
Street. “We have listened to
the parties and have a very
good sense of where they are
all at, and where there are
agreements, and where there
are disagreements.”

Ahern was asked if the gov-
ernments would publish their
compromise recommendations
before the summer, when

' Northern Ireland typically suf-

fers street violence over
Protestant parades that make
negotiations difficult. He
replied, “Definitely.”

.. 4 “We want all the parties to
-help us in this. This is not just

for the two governments,”
Ahern said. “But if.it's left to
the two governments, the two
governments will give the
leadership and make the deci-
sions if that's the way it has to
be. But certainly we would like

“to find'a way: to carry everyone

with us.”

Blair declined to comment.

Both prime ministers have
spent the past two years press-
ing the Democratic Unionists
and Sinn Fein to revive the
kind of coalition that existed in
Northern Ireland from
December 1999 to October
2002. That four-party admin-
istration was the intended cor-
nerstone of the U.S.-brokered
Good Friday peace accord of
1998.

The Democratic Unionists,
who became the largest party
in Northern Ireland in the
province's 2003 legislative

‘ elections, say they will not co-

operate with Sinn Fein until
the IRA disbands.

The IRA last year
renounced violence for politi-
cal purposes and handed over
its arms dumps to disarma-
ment officials, but police say
the group remains involved in
a range of criminal rackets.

THE Duchess of Cornwall on
Wednesday joined model Kate
Moss and actress Naomi Watts
as one of Tatler magazine's
British "fashion icons" of 2005,
according to Associated Press.

That Moss made the top 10
was no surprise — her seemingly-
effortless style is revered by
British women — but the fact
that Prince Charles’ wife joined
her was. : cH

The 58-year-old, duchess,
“wowed us in her red engage-'
ment dress, Philip Treacy.hats
and Robinson Valentine wed-'
ding outfit,” the magazine’said.'

“Camilla is suddenly stunning.”’

Joining her in the top 10 is:
16-year-old Peaches Geldof, the:
daughter of Live Aid founder:
Bob Geldof. The editors said:
she epitomized the “scruffy,
teenage King’s Road thing”,
referring to the west-London
street where outfits usually cost
more than the average
teenager's allowance. ‘

Rounding out the top 10 were
artists Tracey Emin and Sam

~ Taylor-Wood, model. Yasmin

Le Bon, stylist Charlotte Stock-
dale, actress Rosamund Pike
and socialite Daphne Guinness.

‘BELARUS. police on

candidate running in presiden-

tinued to pressure challengers
to the authoritarian incumbent,
Alexander Lukashenko, accord-
ing to Associated Press.

With just 11 days remaining

didate Alexander Milinkevich
held a rally outside a Minsk
movie theatre, telling some
1,000 voters that Lukashenko's
government was afraid of los-
ing the March 19 vote. »

Afterward, police detained
five campaign workers and oth-

"This is absolutely illegal,"
Milinkevich told the crowd.
"Today's regime knows that it
losing the people and therefore
it is resorting to any methods."

Lukashenko has ruled with
an iron fist since 1994, quash-

maintaining his grip on power

@ LONDON

AN author who claims “The
Da Vinci Code” copied ideas
from his work insisted in a
British court Wednesday that
there are major similarities
between his nonfiction book
and Dan Brown’s crypto-reli-
gious thriller — but conceded
there are also substantial dif-
ferences, according to Associ-
ated Press.

“We were writing historical
conjecture, and Mr Brown was
writing a novel,” said Michael
Baigent, co-author of The Holy
Blood and the Holy Grail.

“One would expect their per-
spectives to be marginally dif-
ferent, if not substantially dif-
ferent.”

Baigent and his co-author
Richard Leigh are suing Da
Vinci Code publisher Random
House at Britain’s High Court
for infringing the copyright of
their 1982 book. They claim
Brown’s blockbuster “appro-
priated the architecture” of
their work, which explores the-
ories that Jesus married Mary
Magdalene, the couple had a
child and the bloodline survives.

If the writers succeed in secur-
ing an injunction to bar the use

PAGE 20, THURSDAY, MARCH 9, 2006

of their material, they could hold
up the scheduled May 19 release
of The Da Vinci Code film star-
ring Tom Hanks.

Random House lawyers
argue that the ideas in dispute
are so general they are not pro-
tected by copyright.

A lawyer for the publisher,
John Baldwin, also said many
of the ideas in The Holy Blood
and the Holy Grail did not fea-
ture in Brown’s book, a mix-
ture of code-breaking, art his-
tory, religion and mystical lore
that has sold more than 40 mil-
lion copies since it was pub-
lished in 2003.

“Your statement that Mr
Brown reached all the same his-
torical conjecture you did is fair-
ly misleading,” Baldwin told
Baigent.

Baigent insisted that Brown
“used the results of our histori-
cal conjecture".

“The Da Vinci Code’ uses
the tips of the icebergs that
were produced by the research
that we did,” Baigent said.

New Zealand-born Baigent
was appearing for a second day
of tense exchanges with Bald-
win. At one point, he acknowl-
edged using “infelicitous phrase-
ology” in his witness statement.

YOUR CONNECTION®T



“Ts infelicitous your long
word for being wrong?” said
Baldwin.

In a day of testimony that’

sometimes evoked a university
seminar, lawyers, judge and wit-
ness pored over well-thumbed
copies of “The Da Vinci Code,”
seeking parallels and diver-
gences with “The Holy Blood
and the Holy Grail.”

Baldwin read passages from
the novel out loud to stress the
differences from the earlier
book, which proposed that a
secret order called the Priory
of Sion existed to preserve the
bloodline founded by Jesus
Christ and Mary Magdalene.

“There’s no mention of the
Priory’s oath to keep its true
nature hidden in The Holy
Blood and the Holy Grail, is
there?” Baldwin asked. Baigent
replied: “No. I concede that.”

“There’s no mention of the
Priory protecting the tomb of
Mary Magdalene, is there?”
Baldwin asked.

“Not explicitly, no,” said
Baigent.

Judge Peter Smith told
Baigent that it appeared some
theories put forward in “The
Da Vinci Code” were “exactly
the opposite” of passages in the

Serbia challenges UN court’
right to try it for genocide

@ THE HAGUE,
Netherlands

SERBIA on Wednesday
challenged the right of the
U.N.’s highest court to hear a
suit by Bosnia accusing the
former Yugoslav republic of
genocide, in the first case of a
country standing trial for
humanity’s worst crime,
according to Associated Press.

Opening their defense,
lawyers for Serbia- Montene-
gro, the successor state for the
defunct Yugoslavia, also
argued to the International
Court’ of Justice that the
Balkan wars were waged by
etlinic groups — Serbs, Mus-
lims‘ and’ Croats — not coun-
tries?’ '.-

“THis dispute is between
two sovereign states, neither
of which existed when the
conflict began,” Tibor Varady
said“*It'was an ethnic con-
flict? ‘and the dividing lines
between the warring parties
weré ethnic lines” that did not
coincide with the states carved
in‘the aftermath, he said.

Bosnia- -Herzegovina is seek-
ing: ‘a precedent- setting deci-
sion from the 16 justices that
would hold a state — Serbia
—. responsible for genocide
fot the first time, rather than
individuals. Bosnia conclud-



YOUR CONNECTION®TO THE WORLD

ed 10 days of arguments on
Tuesday, and Serbia will now
have equal time to respond.

A ruling in Bosnia’s favor
could open the way for claims
of billions of dollars in com-
pensation. Croatia has a simi-
lar case pending before the
U.N. tribunal, also known as
the world court.

Serbia tried to distance
itself from the regime of Slo-
bodan Milosevic, which
orchestrated the wars in the
early 1990s that killed an esti-
mated 200,000 people.

Trial

Milosevic was ousted in
2000 and extradited to the
U.N. war crimes tribunal, a
separate court that also sits in
The Hague. His trial for geno-
cide and other war crimes in
Bosnia, Croatia and Kosovo
has gone on for four years.

“I find myself in a paradox.
I must defend a regime to
which I was opposed,” said
Radoslav Stojanovic, the head
of the legal team, repeatedly
referring to his country as
“democratic Serbia.”

Stojanovic said the court,
which adjudicates disputes
between U.N. member states,
is not empowered to heat

Bosnia’s suit because Serbia
was not a U.N. member at the
time.

The United Nations sus-
pended Yugoslavia in 1992,
and Serbia-Montenegro
regained entry in 2001.

Ruling

Bosnia submitted its suit to
the world court in 1993. Ina

preliminary ruling three years

later, the court struck down
Serbia’s challenge to its juris-
diction, but said Belgrade
could raise the issue again at a
later date.

Stojanovic urged the parties
to abandon the legal proceed-
ings and seek a “diplomatic
solution,” arguing that any
ruling by the court would
inflame tensions.

“I fear this will result in an
increase of political extrem-
ism,” no matter what the court
decides, he said.

Varady told the judges in
the century-old Peace Palace
that the case brought by the
government in Sarajevo did
not represent all of Bosnia,
which comprises. a Muslim-

. Croat federation and an

autonomous Serbian Repub-
lic. The Serbian Republic
opposes the suit.

that genocide occurred in
Bosnia. Two army officers
have been convicted of com-
plicity in genocide for the
massacre of-8,000 Muslims at
the U.N.-declared safe zone
at Srebrenica in July 1995.
The world court, however,
is not bound by the rulings of
other courts and must decide
the genocide issues for itself.

on Tuesday, Thomas Franck
told the court his country was

Brazil army blocks key

@ RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil

ARMY troops and federal
highway police set up check-
points on this city's major access
roads Wednesday in an attempt
to recover rifles stolen from an
army barracks, according to
Associated Press.

Some 1,500 troops and police
officers have occupied nine
shantytowns searching for the
guns stolen from a barracks on
Friday by seven gunmen wear-
ing camouflage gear and ninja
masks. The gunmen overpow-
ered three guards, stole the
weapons from a small depot

On Wednesday, acting on a
tip that the bandits were plan-
ning to take the guns out of Rio,
troops were deployed along the
city's main highways and per-
formed random checks on pass-
ing vehicles, said Col. Fernando
Lemos, spokesman for the East-
ern Military Command. .

On Tuesday night, drug gang
members in the Mangueira
shantytown fired tracer bullets
in the air in an attempt to intim-
idate the troops, who did not
return fire, Lemos said.

On Monday, a youth identi-
fied as 16-year-old Eduardo dos
Santos was killed, apparently
by a stray bullet, as troops

exchanged gunfire with
assailants on the downtown
Providencia shantytown.

So far, the army hasn't arrest-
ed anyone and has not found
any of the weapons. Lemos said
the troops could leave the slums
if they don't recover anything.

The massive sweep to recov-
er a handful of weapons was
unusual. Some speculated that it
was linked to October's nation-
al elections, with the govern-
ment trying to curb crime and
win public support.

Rio is one of the world's most
violent cities, with an anhual
homicide rate of nearly 50 per
100,000 people.

In 2003, the army was sum-
moned to control a crime wave
on the eve of the carnival holi-
day. Troops also have patrolled
the streets during internation-
al summits, including a meet-
ing of Latin American presi-
dents in 2004.

At the Earth Summit in 1992,
15,000 troops were deployed to
protect foreign visitors, and
tanks were stationed with can-
nons pointed at major shanty-

Bird flu vaccination in France

A FRENCH vet vaccinates a Padouan chicken against the bird flu with the H5N2 vaccine
Monday, March 6, 2006 in the zoo at Strasbourg in eastern France. A lethal strain of bird flu
has spread to a region on France's Mediterranean coast, with confirmation Sunday that a swan
there died of the H5N1 strain of the virus. Previously, all of France's bird flu cases had been
confined to the southeast Ain region. On Sunday, the Agriculture Ministry announced that a ©
wild swan found dead last week in Saint-Mitre-les-Remparts, in the Bouches- du- Rhone

COW /HOPGEMNTUR,

Opening lead — ace of hearts.

What happens when two players
with a great deal of imagination col-
lide with one another? Something’s
got to give, and it did in this hand

played in a tournament many years:

ago

West opened as dealer with four
hearts. It was certainly a well-timed
pre-emptive bid, since it tumed out
that North-South had the. balance of
strength. North doubled — most
partnerships these days play this as
takeout — and South had far too
good a hand to bid a mere four
spades.

South wanted to get to a slam if
Northhad the right kind of hand, but
he had no way of knowing whether a



heart lead, and he wondered why
East had played the king on the open-
ing trick.

Declarer finally came to the con-
clusion that the only sensible expla-
nation for Ehrlenbach’s play was that
he had started with the J-10-6 of
spades and was trying to develop a
trump trick for himself by panicking
South into ruffing with the king. So
declarer finessed the seven, lost to
West’s jack and went down one.
East’s imagination proved to be more
rewarding than South’s.

We offer no opinion about
declarer’s play, which might have
tumed out right, but you have to
hand it to Ehrlenbach for creating the
opportunity that gave South a chance
to go wrong.

1920’S RURAL COLORADO - When the
regular teacher of the valley’s one-room
schoolhouse must leave, bringing an early
school closing, the children decide to take
over secretly. But there are many problems
to surmount: trouble-making Herbert Bixler,
a suspicious School Board, plus the fact
that the new teacher, Ida Bidson, is not
only one of the students but only fourteen
years old!

Report: North Korea
launches missiles near
border with China

mm TOKYO

NORTH KOREA fired two
surface-to-air missiles near its

border with China on Wednes-

day, a Japanese news agency
reported, raising concerns
about the reclusive regime’s
potential to create instability
in the region, according to
Associated Press.

The Kyodo News agency
offered different accounts, say-
ing a security source in China
told it the missiles were fired
by mistake in the direction of
China during a military drill
and landed in North Korean
territory.

A “Western military source,”
however, Said short-range mis-
siles were test-fired from North
Korea’s eastern coast toward
the Sea of Japan, according to
Kyodo.

At least one of the missiles
had landed in the sea about 60
miles northeast of the launch
site, Kyodo said, citing a J: apan-
ese defense official.

The agency said it couldn’t
immediately reconcile the con-
flicting reports, and the exact
time of their launch was not
known.

_ of missiles fired wouldn’t pose

much of a threat to anywhere
far beyond the North’s borders.
Despite remaining technically
at war with South Korea, the
sides have embarked on rec-
onciliation efforts since a.2000

summit between their leaders ‘

and many South Koreans don’t
view the North as a threat.
But Pyongyang shocked
Tokyo and other nations when
it test-fired a ballistic missile
over northern Japan in 1998.
It has since test-fired short-
range missiles many times,
including one that was
launched into the Sea of Japan
in May last year. In 2003, it test-
fired short-range land-to-ship
missiles at least three times dur-
ing heightened tensions over
its nuclear weapons program.

Japan’s Defense Ministry’

said it couldn’t confirm the
report of Wednesday’s launch-
es. South Korean officials who
monitor the North also said
they didn’t have any informa-
tion.

Pentagon spokesman Bryan

GUNMEN in camouflage uniforms stormed the offices of a private
security company Wednesday and kidnapped as many as 50 employ-
ees, while U.S. and Iraqi patrols earlier discovered 24 bodies in var-
ious parts of the capital, police said, according to Associated Press.

Unidentified attackers hit the al-Rawafid Security Co. at 4:30 p.m.
and forced the workers into seven vehicles, including several white
SUVs, said Interior Ministry official Maj. Falah al-Mohammedawi.
The company is located in Zayouna, a volatile mixed Sunni-Shiite

- neighborhood in eastern Baghdad.

The company, one of dozens providing protection for businesses
and other clients in the violence-plagued country, is located in Zay-

ouna, a volatile mixed Sunni-Shiite neighborhood in east Baghdad. Its:

employees include many former members of Saddam Hussein’s secu-

rity forces.

The unrelenting violence came amid a break in the political stale-
mate that had threatened the creation of unity government that
Washington hopes can stabilize Iraq so that foreign forces can start

going home.

A Shiite vice president, who had withheld his signature from a pres-
idential decree calling parliament into session, signed an executive
order to end the deadlock and allow lawmakers to convene — perhaps
as early as Sunday, a Shiite factional leader told The Associated

Press.

Whitman said Wednesday that
he was unaware of the North
Korean missile firings.

White House spokesman
Scott McClellan said adminis-
tration officials were still check-
ing into the reports. “I really
don’t have more for you at this
time,” he told reporters on Air
Force One, en route to New
Orleans.

Last year, regional govern-
ments and Washington played
down the significance of the
rocket launch in early May, and
the real concern would come
from longer-range missiles.

In Washington on Tuesday,
the commander of the U.S. mil-
itary in South Korea, Army
Gen. B.B. Bell, said reports
indicated Pyongyang was
“preparing to field a new inter-
mediate-range ballistic missile
which could easily reach Unit-
ed States facilities in Okinawa,
Guam and possibly Alaska,”
according to prepared com-
ments.

However, Bell noted there
had been “very little activity”
by the North Koreans in recent
years on long-range ballistic
missiles. Instead, he said offi-
cials have seen increasing work
on short-range missiles that
could be used on the Korean
Peninsula.

Besides producing a large
number of weapons, Bell said
North Korea also “appears
willing to sell to anyone.”

Analysts say North Korea‘is
developing long-range missiles
capable of reaching Alaska,
Hawaii or perhaps other states
on the West Coast.

Japan and the United States

. have started to develop a joint

ballistic missile defense system,
and Tokyo has said it will
launch two spy satellites by
March 2007 to monitor North
Korea and other trouble spots.

There is no evidence North
Korea has managed to load a
nuclear warhead on a missile,
but the isolated communist
state claims to have produsee
nuclear. weapons.

Last September, Pyongyang
agreed at multilateral talks to
abandon its atomic weapons
program in exchange for aid
and security guarantees. How-
ever, no progress has been
made since then on imple-
menting the accord. |

Insurance carrier wins ruling over BEC plan

@ By NEIL HARTNELL

Tribune Business Editor

he former Global Life

Insurance has won a

Court of Appeal verdict

overturning a previous

ruling that ordered it to
pay a fee to an insurance broker,
with the dispute having its origins in
a bid to win the Bahamas Electricity
Corporation’s (BEC) group health
plan.

Court of Appeal Justices Gan:
patsingh, Osadebay and Longley
overturned a Supreme Court verdict
that ruled Global Life should pay “a

reasonable fee” to Worldwide Insur-

‘ance Agents and Brokers for work
done in helping the life and health
insurer secure the BEC plan.

However, the Court of Appeal
found that no contract had been con-
cluded between Global Life and
Worldwide, and therefore the insur-
ance carrier was no liable to pay the
latter, so “the case should have been
dismissed”.

The judgement recorded that the

dispute had its origins when Global
Life appointed Worldwide its agent
on September 6, 2002, with effect
from September 15.

The Court of Appeal said: “At
about that time, a major public cor-

‘ poration, the Bahamas Electricity

Corporation (BEC), was looking for
a carrier for its group health insur-
ance plan.

“(Global Life], intending to make

a proposal to BEC to get its busi-'
ness, and apparently recognising the.

experience and expertise of [World-
wide’s] principal, wrote to the prin-
cipal on November 6, 2002, propos-
ing to pay [Worldwide] commissions

of between 10-12 per cent based on .

the administrative role each would
play in the administration of the plan,
if the business was secured and
[Worldwide] played an instrumental
role in the process.’

The court said the administrative
role was subject to an agreement
between Global Life and Worldwide.

At this time, .a majority stake in
Global Life was in the process of
being acquired by Colina Insurance

Minister moves to ban egg imports

@ By A FELICITY INGRAHAM
Tribune Business Reporter



MINISTER of Agriculture Leslie Miller has

moved to prohibit the importation of foreign
eggs, and yesterday warned that tariffs will be
imposed upon any Bahamian company failing to
comply.
. His decision comes after visiting Bahamas
Poultry Company, operating as Sunshine Farms,
Grand Bahama, which is owned by Greek
Bahamian entrepreneur, Minas Vardaoulis.

It was first revealed by Tribune Business on

March 3 that Bahamian egg producers were
suffering significant losses as a result of the
increased importation of eggs. Rainbow Farms
and Sunshine Farms in Nassau said they were
losing anywhere from 300 to 500 cases of egg
sales each week since the 2005 final quarter.

While buyers had no problem with eggs being
produced in Nassau, they had alleged that eggs
from Freeport were not up to par, and refused to
purchase them

The article prompted the minister and his —

officials to contact Bahamian farmers, and even-
tually make a trip to Freeport to personally vis-
it the farms.

Yesterday, Mr Miller told Tribune Business
that he and his agriculture officers, along with
representatives from the Department of Envi-
ronmental Health, saw a first-class operation
at Sunshine Farms, Grand Bahama. He felt
many concerns did not have merit.

With the farm having the ability to produce
enough eggs to feed the entire Bahamas and
export throughout the Caribbean, Mr Miller
said he decided his ministry would fully sup-
port Mr Vardaoulis and help his product to

Company. Colina had earlier in 2002
taken Board and management con-
trol at Global Life, although final
regulatory approval and the full
merger consummation were not
achieved until early 2003.

Therefore, during the time of the
dispute Global Life was effectively
part of Colina Insurance Company,
although Colina’s name is not men-
tioned in the judgement.

The Court of Appeal said that
while a submission was made to
BEC, before the contract was con-
cluded, Global Life terminated the

arrangement with Worldwide in July |

2003.

Global Life secured BEC’s group
health plan in April 2004, and on
October 18, 2004, sent a $5,000
cheque to Worldwide as a finder’s
fee for introducing the BEC busi-
ness.

However, Worldwide refused to
accept the payment and began court
proceedings to enforce: the Novem-
ber 6, 2002, agreement.

It subsequently obtained a
Supreme Court judgement that

Companies failing to"
comply will face tariffs.

found it had played’ an “instrumen-
tal” part in helping to win the BEC
business, but was only entitled to a
“reasonable fee”, not the 10-12 per
cent commission. The two sides were
left to work out the sum due.

The Supreme Court also found
that since Global Life had put togeth-
er a team to win the BEC contract,
that team was effectively acting as
the agent, so they were entitled to
the 10-12 per cent commission.
Worldwide was not entitled to it on
its own.

Global Life appealed on the
grounds that “no legally binding
agreement ever came into being”,
while Worldwide sought to obtain a
ruling that it alone was entitled to
the full commission.

In analysing the November 6, 2002,
letter, the Court of Appeal broke it
down into. two parts. The first part
contained “precedents” or conditions
for the contract to kick in, namely
that Global Life submitted a pro-

posal to BEC; Worldwide was.

“fnstrumental” in helping Global Life

Global Life won the business.

The Court of Appeal found that
all these precedents had been ful-
filled, as none was challenged before
it. They then analysed the second
part of the letter, which said Global
Life was “prepared” to pay commis-’
sions of 10-12 per cent “based on
administrative roles to be agreed”.

“It would seem therefore that the
parties intended that once the con-
tract was signed secured, its admin-
istration would be divided between
the parties, as per an agreement to be
reached....,” the Court of Appeal
found.

However, it ruled that there had
been no agreement on the role each

_ party would play to administer the

BEC health plan, and as a result, an
“essential” part of the contract was
not in place. '

“We would therefore hold that no
contract was, concluded between
[Global Life] and [Worldwide],” the
Court of Appeal ruled. “Notwith-

FREEPORT - Grand
Bahama’s high airport costs
must be lowered if the island
is to effectively compete and
attract more airline carriers,
warned the deputy director-
general of tourism, David
Johnson.

Speaking at. the Grand
Bahama Business Outlook
Conference, Mr Johnson said
Grand Bahama International
Airport had one of the high-
est airport turnaround costs

within the region. ‘

He revealed’ that two
major carriers to the island
are faced with a combined
$10 million increase in the
costs of operating flights to
Grand Bahama, driven large-
ly by fuel prices, which is
compounded by the much
higher airport turnaround

_cost charges.

“Our best weapon is to
seek out ways to lower our
costs in the areas we can,
even if it can be linked to vol-
ume,” Mr Johnson said.

“Today there is no incen-
tive at GB International for
an airline to add capacity in

.Freeport was $34 per passen-

costs, which is often the
incentive in most locations.
We must find ways to com-
pete...others are doing this.”
He said airlift had been
one of the major challenges
or handicaps for Grand
Bahama’s tourism industry.
‘Mr Johnson said the air- .
port turnaround cost in






























ger compared to Nassau.
He explained that it would |
cost a 50-seat aircraft with
average loads of 75 per cent,
$1,275 more to turnaround a
Dash 8-500. He said a jet with
125-seat capacity, and with a
75 per cent load factor, would
cost $3,187 more per turn, or
well over $1 million more per
year on Grand Bahama if
they operated a daily service,
when compared to Nassau.
Mr Johnson pointed out
that most airline carriers are
attracted to low cost airports.
To illustrate this point, he
compared the performance
of two nearby airports - one
with higher cost and one with
lower costs, namely Miami
and Fort Lauderdale, for just

decisions because she/he can-
not get all the people required
to make the decision in a room
at one time, instead of organ-
ising a virtual meeting.

The shift required is one
where a manager is only inter-
ested in output and results.
How those results are achieved
is no longer the manager’s con-
cern. Through this change, a

- manager can embrace the

many remote possibilities that
exist.

Remote Network

Management

Remote Network Manage-
ment is referring to the ability
to monitor, manage and sup-
port a network from a remote
location using Internet-based
tools.

For example, at Providence
Technology Group, we moni-
tor what issues are affecting
our clients’ network from our
offices in real time, and we can
respond before issues become
critical — such as a server run-
ning low on memory. Proac-
tive network support and man-
agement minimises downtime,
improves network perfor-
mance and increases value. °

To gain these benefits, a
manager must change their
way of thinking to measuring
their service provider by net-
work performance, not by the
presence on their premises of

technical analysts. It also’

requires a shift in accepting
Internet-based tools as being
secure, given sufficient controls

In place.

Remote Working

There are considerable pro- |

ductivity benefits to be gained







by an employee being able to
work remotely. The frustrated
employee who is late for work
every morning due to traffic
and school runs does not make
the most productive nor com-
mitted employee.

An alternative to this is to
enable employees to work
from home when required.
Research demonstrates that
there are significant employer
benefits in incorporating some
flexibility into employees’
working lives; it adds value to
the bottom line through
increased productivity, reduced
absenteeism and higher staff
retention.

The tools that most compa- _.

nies would‘have in house pro-

vide nearly all the tools.
_required to enable their
“employees to' work ‘from home:

a laptop, cable modem access,
cell phone, instant messaging
and e-mail. The only addition
is to set up a secure Virtual
Private Network (VPN) con-
nection, which in many cases
does not require additional
software.

Making

A manager needs to shift
their mindset from productivi-
ty equals time spent in the
office to one where they focus
on output and results. Setting
expected results each month
puts the onus on the employee
to complete their job to the
level expected.

Remote Meetings ©

‘Presence-based’ applica-
tions, one of the technology
success stories in recent times,
are those that provide the
‘presence’ experience within a
virtual team setting. They
remove the need for many
face-to-face meetings, and

therefore significantly reduce .

travel costs. In addition, they

enable businesses to make:

decisions faster by reducing
telephone tag and travel time.

One good example of these
types of solutions is Microsoft
Office’s Live Meeting. This is a
hosted Web conferencing ser-
vice that allows companies to

meet and collaborate in a vir- °
‘tual environment with exter-

nal parties. With Live Meet-



ing, you can use a virtual
whiteboard, change docu-
ments, make presentations and
demonstrate products. Inter-
action with the other partici-”
pants is through writing ques-’
tions, using instant messaging,
making notes on the white-
board as well as by participat-
ing in polls.

Although this solution’
requires upfront spending,
businesses can start recouping
much of that money immedi-'
ately by avoiding travel costs.’
It also requires a change in
mindset to believing that com- '
munication in real time - and at
a moment’s notice - is more
productive than waiting for the
physical presence of others. .

These are just three of the
‘remote possibilities’ that can °
enable a company to derive’
business benefits without
incurring substantial costs.
Technology is about more than "
purchasing new hardware and
software; it is about adopting
new business processes, chang-
ing organisational cultures and
changing the attitudes of exec-
utive management.

wage levels ‘not decent’

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

THE Bahamian minimum
wage “does not provide a
decent standard of living for a
worker and family”, a US State
Department report released
yesterday has concluded, a
finding that will boost trade
union campaigns for it to be
increased.

In the Worker’s Rights sec-
tion on the Bahamas, part of
the US State Department’s

International Human Rights —

Report, the minimum wage for
government employees was
described as being $4.45 per
hour, having been established
in 2000.

For private sector workers,
the report said the minimum
wage was $4 per hour, having
been established in 2002. While
some are likely to point to the
hypocrisy surrounding the US

document, given the well-doc-
umented human rights abuses
at Guantanamo Bay and at
Iraq’s Abu Ghraib prison, the
State Department does iden-
tify gaps in Bahamian labour
law.

It points out that Bahamian
law “does not provide a right
for workers to remove them-
selves from dangerous work
situations without jeopardy to
continued employment”.

The report added that while
the Ministry of Labour and
Immigration had a team of on-
site inspectors who conducted
visits to enforce workplace
health and safety regulations,
plus investigate employee con-

— US State Department report



cerns and complaints, these
inspections “occurred infre-
quently” in 2005.

The US State Department
said: “Although the law pro-
hibits forced or compulsory
labour, including by children,
there were reports that such
practices had occurred.

“Although the law prohibits
the employment of children
under 14 for industrial work
or work during school hours,

some children worked part-
time in light industry and ser-
vice jobs.”

The report said that almost
25 per cent of the workforce,
and 80 per cent of workers in
the hotel industry, were mem-
bers of trade unions. However,
it said some Bahamian
employers felt the Industrial
Tribunal was “biased unfairly
in favour of employees”.

The US State Department
also.recorded complaints from
human rights advocates, who
had alleged that the Grand
Bahama Port Authority had
allowed Hutchison Whampoa
to discourage trade-union for-
mation.

$500,000 airport repairs

il Aviation and Ministry of
Works officials, assessed that
there were dangerous potholes
throughout the entire length
of the runway. There were
also numerous ridges, and the
tarmac was covered with pro-
jectiles that could be dangerous
to propellors and turbine jet
engines, the réport said.

The officials also noticed
“large areas of standing water
several inches deep" on the
runway. The airport also suf-
fered from a sunken area,
where a trench was dug for
electrical cables, and which was
later patched with tar.

The Stella Maris airport does

BIC 2005 profits to
recover to $25-$30m

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

THE Bahamas Telecommu-
nications Company’s (BTC)
2005 annual net profit has been
forecast at between $25-$30
million, the minister of works
and utilities said yesterday,
describing this as “a major
improvement” over 2004’s $8.4
million.

Breaking down the 22 per
cent increase in BTC’s oper-
ating expenses to $264.7 mil-
lion in 2004, Bradley Roberts
said expense on maintaining
the company’s plant and equip-
ment had risen by 30 per cent
or $20.7 million to $90.2 mil-
lion, the highest increase com-

costs resulting from that year’s
hurricanes.

Administrative expenses
were up $16 million or 28.6 per

Mr Roberts said BTC’s pay-
roll costs had increased by $5.2
million due to special review
payments and the payment of

negotiated increases in basic

pay and allowances.
Maintenance costs rose by
$4.4 million due to deteriora-
tions in conditions at BT'C’s

per cent due to $50.1 million of
capital spending being moved
from “work in progress” to
plant in service”.

Mr Roberts told the House
of Assembly that advertising
costs rose by $3.1 million to
support the GSM cellular net-
work’s roll-out, while the cost
of sales rose by.$2.5 million -
again due to the sale of GSM
phones.

Among the increase in plant
expense was a $1.3 million rise
in electricity costs associated
with the Bahamas Electricity
Corporation’s (BEC) fuel sur-
charge rise, and the need to
power an extra 40 GSM cellu-
lar sites.

Mr Roberts said BTC’s bal-
ance sheet had strengthened

in 2004, with working capital.

moving from a deficit of $29.1
million the year before to a
$21.4 million surplus as at
December 31, 2004.

Total debt, he added, fell by
$14.3 million in 2004 to $35.6
million, while debt as a per-
centage of shareholder (the
Government) equity fell from
6.7 per cent in December 2003
to 5.8 per cent.

On the operational side, Mr
Roberts said the first phase of
BTC’s $60 million cable, which
will connect 14 islands in a




fibre optic ring, had been com-

pleted in December. The

entire project is set to finish by
August 2006.

He added that.since the
GSM cellular service was
launched in 2004, it has attract-
ed over 115,000 subscribers.
Total cell phone subscribers in
the Bahamas have increased

by 156 per cent since May .



2002, Mr Roberts said, growing
from 80,000 to 205,000.

Some $6.1 million was due
to be spent on extending GSM
services to Exuma, with a fur-
ther $1 million spent on

. Bimini’s GSM installation. Mr

‘ Roberts said 40 GSM cellular

sites were being installed in
Abaco for a cost of $14 mil-

lion.

FROM page 1B

stop bringing in investors
whose strategies were not.a
“winning one”

Despite the loss of one third
of Grand Bahama’s hotel room
capacity following the 2004 clo-
sure of the Royal Oasis, Mr
Johnson said Grand Bahama
generated total hotel room rev-
enues in 2005 of $46.8 million,
compared to $43.4 million in
2004, a 7.8 per cent increase.
Average room rates increased
by 21.6 per cent from$90.60 to
$110.22.

However, he indicated that
Grand Bahama finished 2005
with overall tourist arrivals
down by 11.2 per cent, with air
arrivals down some 20 percent
and sea arrivals off 5.8 per
cent.

“If we measure tourism suc-
cess by hotel financial perfor-
mance, we will miss altogether
what it does for our economy.
We begin to forget that far
more persons not employed
directly in the hotel sector are

impacted when tourism counts
fall, than those directly
employed at our resorts,” Mr
Johnson said.

He added that the loss of a
single stopover visitor was a
potential loss of some $800 for
the economy.

Mr Johnson explained that
the loss of 1,000 rooms, and
the ability to increase stopover
visitors by one third, had
resulted in a loss of some $120
million in revenues for the
Grand Bahama economy.

“That is what we are experi-
encing today,” said Mr John-
son.

“We need to recognise that
we are operating with several
handicaps, one of which is our
lack of critical mass and inabil-

ity to achieve the much needed

economies of scale to compete
effectively.

“I don’t believe we should
sit back and simply continue
to rationalise our lack of

‘achievement by articulating

what jis ‘ailing us’, but take
swift measures to fix it.”

Mr Johnson stressed that the

redevelopment of the Royal .

Oasis Reosrt & Casino was
critical to the rejuvenation of
the island’s tourism sector, as
well as the nearby Interna-
tional Bazaar.

“I must share with you that
we have in Grand Bahama, for
far too long, made poor deci-
sions or allowed the wrong
decisions to prevail regarding
who develops what in our
tourism sector,” said Mr John-
son.

“It is time we stop allowing
for, or ushering in, investors
or developers whose agenda is
not a wining one for the desti-
nation if we were to profes-
sionally vet them in advance.”

While speaking at the Grand
Bahama Business Outlook
Confererice, Mr Johnson said
tourism was a most competi-
tive industry. —

The financially troubled
Royal Oasis Resort closed in
September 2004 and laid off
some 1,200 workers following
extensive hurricane damage.

Prime Minister Perry
Christie told conference atten-;
dees that his patience with the®
owners, Lehman Brothers’ pri-,
vate equity arm, was diminish-*
ing and had threatened to
revoke the resort’s casino
licence if they failed to find. a
buyer for the property soan,.

Mr Johnson said it was
extremely important to seek
out investors with winning
track records, and not continue’,
to become the recipient, of
schemes that could never.

‘work. He added that miore

important than simply having’
1,000 rooms back in play, a
new world class operator was
needed at the Royal Oasis:
“We have not been closer’
than we are today, and I know’
that the players we are engag-:
ing to take this on can dehiv-"
erm” he said. a
“They have the lapse
leverage and credibility, ‘and:
are financially prepared to tru-
ly ‘redevelop’ and reposition,

Muralitharan
claims five

to dismiss .
Bangladesh
in second test

@ CRICKET
BOGRA, Bangladesh
Associated Press

SRI LANKA'S Muttiah
Muralitharan claimed his
50th five-wicket haul
Wednesday to bundle
Bangladesh out for 234 in
its first innings on the
opening day of the second
and final cricket test.

Offspinner Muralitha-
ran's five wickets came at
the cost of 79 runs, while
Lasith Malinga and Dil-
hara Fernando took two
each, and Malinga Ban-
dara claimed one to dis-
miss Bangladesh for 234 .

The Bangladeshi bowl-
ing attack looked equally
confident, taking two Sri
Lanka wickets for just 13
runs in reply.

Syed Rasel first trapped
opener Michael van Dort
Ibw for a duck, and Shaha-
dat Hossain had night-
watchman Malinga Ban-
dara (2) caught at square
leg by Nafees Iqbal.

Upul Tharanga was
unbeaten at 12 and Thilan
Samaraweera was on sev-
en at stumps, with Sri
Lanka reaching 25 for
two. ;

Bangladesh struggled to
188 for six at tea before
Malinga had Khaled
Mashud caught behind by
Kumar Sangakkara for 12
in the last session of the
day.

Caught

Muralitharan then
caught Mohammad
Rafique (32) and Shaha-
dat Hossain (6) off Dil-
hara Fernando deliveries,
before dismissing Syed
Rasel (0) himself.

- With his latest haul,
Muralitharan is now two
short of the landmark 600
test wickets, passed only
by record holder Shane
Warne of Australia.

Muralitharan trapped
Iqbal lbw for 26, before
claiming his opening part-
ner Javed Omar for 35 in
similar fashion before
lunch,

After the break, the off-
spinner induced another
lbw, this time claiming
Mushfiqur Rahim for two.

Bangladesh captain
Habibul.Bashar scored 69
with seven fours before he
was caught by Tharanga
of-a Muralitharan deliv-
ery. |
Bandara bowled
Mohammad Ashraful for
24, while Malinga picked
up Shahriar Nafees for
nine.

Bangladesh made a sol-
id start after Bashar won
the toss and decided to
bat first in a flat pitch at
Shaheed Chandu Stadium
in the-northern town of
Bogra.

The home side cruised
to its first 50 without loss
inthe 11th over before
Muralitharan struck in his
first over.

‘Omar hit five bound-
aries in his 78-ball knock
of 35. Iqbal also smashed
five boundaries for his 26
off 45 balls.

HE New Providence

Women's Basketball
Association continues to make
great strides.

Last week Friday, they offi-
cially launched the Coaches
Association.

The association is headed by
former basketball great Linda
Davis who is currently coaching
the College of the Bahamas
Lady Caribs.

It's a bold move that has
received the blessings of both
the NPWBA and the governing

’ Bahamas Basketball Federa-

tion. The federation has even
granted the association the
rights to become a non-voting
member.

A coaches association is what
is needed in every sport to help
make some decisions that can
assist the organisation that they
play under to govern the sport
a lot better.

The only thing left for the
NPWBA to do right now is to
form a Players Association.

In time, I guess that will
come, but right now the NPW-
BA continues to be the model
for other local sporting associ-
ations to emulate.

Hats off to the NPWBA,
who will begin the postseason

BSF ELECTION

his weekend will be an
important one for the
Bahamas Softball Federation.

They will go to the polls to
elect a new president for the
next three years.

Incumbent president Rom-
mel Knowles won't be seeking
another term in office, having
served with distinction over the
past two consecutive terms.

During his tenure, the BSF
has enjoyed a steady flow with
more awareness, not only in
New Providence, but through-
out the affiliated Family Islands
where events like the AGM
have been staged instead of
New Providence.

The sport is currently in tip
top shape and whoever suc-
ceeds Knowles should have an
easy task making the transition.

While no names have been
confirmed as heirs to the pres-
idency as nominations are
expected to be taken from the
floor, there's: some indication
that at least three component
candidates are expected to vie
for the position. ©

NPWBA shows the way

New Providence Softball Asso-
ciation and Darrel Weir, the
president of the Grand
Bahama Softball Association,
have all expressed an interest.

It should be an interesting
AGM and elections.

FIRST CLASS
PROMOTIONS

ichelle and Ray
Minus Jr and their
First Class Promotions are set
to launch their first profession-
al boxing show for the year on

Friday night at the Wyndham

Nassau Resort Hotel.

From the break, they have
put together a show that
is bound to raise some eye-
brows.

Dubbed "The Big Test," the
event will showcase two recent-
ly crowned Bahamian champi-
ons against visiting opponents
from Puerto Rico in a prelude
to what is expected to come lat-
er in the year when they
both fight for international
titles.

Lightweight champion
Meacher 'Pain' Major head-
lines the show in the 10-round
main event bout against

Celestino Rodriquez and in the







with coaches association

STUBBS

co-main event, super mid-
dleweight champion Jermaine
'‘Choo-Choo' Mackey will face
Rene Sierre.

Both fighters are the cream
of the crop on the local scene
and are sure to draw the fans as
they've demonstrated in the
past year that they are
quality fighters, who deserve a
shot at the pending British
Commonwealth and Caribbean
titles. :

_ First Class Promotions did a
fantastic job in promoting the
shows last year.

They have improved on the
quality of opponents that they
have brought to the ring.

Puerto Rico is known for the
top notch boxers, so it will be
interesting to see what calibre
of fighters is brought in for this
show. Their performances
could certainly set the tone for
future fights.

Minus has already indicated

that they intend to lure fighters

from Mexico.

Like Puerto Rico, Mexico is
another of those countries mak-
ing its mark on the pro scene.

So it seems as if the future is
a bright one for the sport of
pro boxing. The Minuses, once
again, must be commended for
the role they are playing in

keeping it alive.

the 15-17 division.

The duo will have
their fair share of com-
petition having to go

stroke, 200 freestyle,
100m back, 200m and
400m individual medley,
400m freestyle and the
200m backstroke.

While Saunders will
have an easier ride, he
will join Armbrister in
the 50m backstroke,
100m back, 200m indi-
vidual medley, 400m
freestyle and the 200m
backstroke.

Brown wins gold but

â„¢ TRACK AND FIELD
By KELSIE JOHNSON
Junior Sports

Reporter !

GERARD Brown kissed
his last chance of breaking
the intermediate boys triple
jump record good-bye: yes-
terday at the Bahamas Asso-

ciation of Independent Sec-

ondary School (BAISS)
track and field meet.
Having the wind.to blame
for not accomplishing his
first goal for the season, the
‘15-year-old St Augustine’s
College student will have
to settle for just the

Wind indicator

rules out 14.93m



gold medal.

The wind reading on the
first jump of 14.93 meters by
Brown crushed the nine year
old record, but the wind
indicator recorded the gusty
head wind at +2.50, an ille-
gal reading for records. |

Even though he knew his
dream of breaking the

record had slipped away,
Brown said he is still pleased
knowing that he did touch
the’ marking held by
Olympian and national
record holder in the event

Leevan ‘Superman’ Sands. —

He said: “I am hurt, but
pleased on the other end. I
knew that I could break the

record so I went for it. It is
just unfortunate that the
wind picked up.

“TI tried to wait for it to
die down, but in the middle
of my approach it picked up.
This was so unfortunate for
me. -

“I know this is my last
chance at the record, I will

have to go after another:

record at nationals, can’t get
this one anymore. But
knowing I did break. it
makes me average myself

towards:the record holder, -

I now know that I am on
track to bigger things.”
Brown leaped his way

misses out on record

onto the Carifta:Games
team on both of his mark-
ings, coming in second in the
event was Vincent St Louis
of Queen’s College with a
best of 12.40m and Kristen
Taylor-tiepburn was third
with a leap of 12.38m.

Brown added: “Going past
Leevan’s jump has motivat-
ed me to my second goal
which is the national record
and the third the Carifta
games record, held by a fel-
low Bahamian. ;

“Seeing that I am that
close to 15m will help push
me more in practice and
hopefully, by the Carifta
games, I will be ready.”

Shantera Brown of Prince
William Falcons lept her
way to a gold medal in the
senior girls high jump with a
clearance of 1.42m, finish-
ing in second place was Ste-
fka Cleare and Krystal
Darville both clearing
1.37m.

The bantam girls would
post the same record as the
senior girls in the high jump
with Devinn Cartwright of
Queen’s College clearing
1.42m, Chantel Adderley in
1.37m and Tamara Minns of
St John’s College in third
with 1.29m.

Cymone Hamilton took
the bantam girls javelin with
a best throw of 14.29m over
Atoria Evans, who had-a
best of 12.21m and
Taneka Sandiford in third
in 11.96m. .

Missed

Jamal Wilson of Temple
Christian qualified for the
national high school cham-
pionships in the senior boys
long jump, but missed out
ona record — scratching his
attempt that shot him past
it.

Wilson took the event
with 6.81m. Coming in sec-
ond was Carlye Thompson
on 6.30m then Lavardo
Sands 6.25m. ;

On the track, Warren
Frasier would post the
fastest time heading into
today’s finals of the 100m
for intermediate boys.

Fraser of Temple Christ-
ian clocked a time of 10.79
seconds to snag the fastest
time over Karlton Rolle who
ran 10.81 seconds and
Shawn Lockhart with 11.09
seconds.

The fastest time in the
intermediate girls belonged
to Ashlee Dorsett of
Queen’s College in 12.44
seconds, coming in second
was Krystal Bodie with
12.57 seconds, then Kelly
Rolle in 13.03 and Venette
Pratt in 13.12 seconds.

Shenique Ferguson would
lead the charge in the senior
girls division with a fastest
time of 12.00 seconds.
The time gave Ferguson the
win in the first heat and the
edge over Tia Rolle, who
clocked 12.53 seconds and
Javonya Wilson in 12.92 sec-
onds.

The finals of the 100m will
be held during the day ses-
sion of‘the meet, with the
4x100m in all divisions and
the 4x400m climaxing the
meet.

Day two of the BAISS
meet is expected to start at
9am with 300m hurdles fol-
lowed by the 1,500m and the
800m.

Wife claims there’s been
no action on physical
abuse complaints because
husband is an officer

& By TIFFANY GRANT
Tribune Staff Reporter

A WIFE claims police have
repeatedly failed to respond to
her complaints of physical abuse
against her husband because hei is
an officer in the force.

She has accused him of impris-
oning her and their children in
their home for two whole days —
and inflicting a cut on her fore-
head, which required 27 stitches.

The woman, who wished to
remain anonymous, said she has
filed five or six complaints about
the physical abuse she has
endured. These were recorded at
various police stations and the
police complaints unit.

“T have not had anyone call me
back, or as much as ask to hear
my side of the story,” she said.

The woman said her husband
beat her in front of the children
and, on one occasion, took the
phone out of the house and
locked her and the children inside
for two days. ;

She said they weren’t able to
get out because she never had a
key for the deadlock.

Later, she claimed, she and her
husband met with high-ranking
police officials, but nothing was
resolved.

“He’s done a crime and he’s
never been locked up. If an ordi-
nary man was married to me he
would have been locked away,”
she claimed.

“It hurts me to do what I have
to do, but. I would be saving
someone else’s life. I have tried
every avenue for the Royal
Bahamas Police Force ‘to assist
me,” she said.

The woman said she had with-















stood being slapped across the
face and kicked in the stomach.
One injury on her forehead need-
ed 27 stitches, she claimed.

Last year she left her belong-
ings and walked out of their home

with nothing apart from her chil-
dren.

“Maybe I thought this was a
bad dream and I’d ask him to go
to counselling to get help. I have
tried every avenue to make my
marriage work,” she said.

“I have never done anything
for him to have to hit me. I never
did anything to even get him
upset that he had to hit me. Iam
not going to make. excuses for
myself and sey ‘Oh, I made him
mad.”

“T.don’t care what kind of bad
day you had at work, it was never
that bad that you had to come
home and do these things to the
person you said you love,” she
said. ;

Chief Supt Hulan Hanna said
any complaint -made to police sta-
tions or the complaints unit had
been taken seriously and investi-
gations were ongoing.

Sometimes, he said, investiga-
tions involving domestic matters
could be protracted because there
was always another side of the
story. ’

Mr Hanna said if the woman:
needed an update on the matter,
she could inquire about the status
of her complaint to the Com-
plaints Unit or wherever else in
the force that she made a com-
plaint.

“T can assure her and members
of the public in general that,
regardless of where a person

US SECRETARY of State Condoleezza Rice will not be paying the
Bahamas an official visit in the near future.

Earlier this year US Embassy officials announced that plans were
underway for Dr Rice to visit the Bahamas sometime in March fol-
lowing Florida Governor Jeb Bush’s visit to the country in February.

Although the governor’s visit — at which such issues as LNG, edu-
cation and the two Cuban dentists were discussed — was considered a
success, there no longs seems to be any plans for the Secretary of
State’ S visit.

death penalty

A FRESH call was made yes-
terday for the enforcement of
the death penalty in the wake of
the murder of businessman Kei-
th Carey.

Evangelist Rex Major, retired
pastor of Grace Community
Church, said that murderers
should be brought to justice and
the judicial system has to be
drastically altered.

Mr Major was speaking at
Bahamas Faith Ministries dur-
ing Mr Carey’s funeral.

Mr Carey, 42, was gunned
down last Monday as he was
about to enter the Bank of the
Bahamas International on

Harrold Road to make a_

deposit.

Addressing hundreds of
mourners, Mr Major stressed
the urgency of finding Mr
Carey’s murderer. “Justice
delayed is justice denied,” he
said.

Mr Major said that it is unfair
that many victims and parents
of victims often have to wait for
long periods before justice is
served.

He also urged the congrega-

tion to speak out against all

injustices.

' “Have some ‘courage: in the
system, have some function.
Don’t be afraid to tell anyone



@ THE late Keith Carey was laid to rest yesterday

that they are wrong or you are
guilty.”

Mr Major said that persons
must begin to take responsibil-
ity for wrong actions and that
family members should not help
criminals avoid justice.

“Parents cannot hide the
murder inthe house. We must
now create for that kind of sit-
uation a heavy penalty. Any-
body seen as keeping someone
from apprehension must be
seen as thieves,” he said.

“God demands that the killer
die because he killed another.

We all know that those people
who are truly'convicted should
be dead now,” he added.

The retired pastor concluded

In brief —

Government
criticised for
stance on
homosexuals

HOMOPHOBIA and reli-
giously based opposition to
homosexuality is widespread in
the Bahamas, the US State
Department’s 2005 Country
Report stated.

The newly released report
criticised the Bahamian gov-
ernment for actively promoting
opposition to homosexuality.

The report read: “Although
homosexual relations between
consenting adults are legal,
there was no legislation to
address the human rights con-
cerns of homosexuals, lesbians,
bisexuals, or trans-gendered
persons.”

In September, the report said,
Miss Teen Bahamas was
stripped of her title after she
said that she was lesbian.

“Also in September, public
school teachers punished stu-
dents wearing clothing per-
ceived to identify them as
homosexual or advocates of
homosexuality,” it read.

The human rights report fur-
ther pointed out that there were
continued reports of job termi-
nations following disclosure of
sexual orientation, as well as
discrimination in the allocation
of housing.

Fun run in
memory of
beloved
teacher

THE Alumni’ of St
Augustine’s College (SAC) is
to host a fun-run walk to com-
memorate the memory of a
favourite teacher. ° °

According to Gino Narin,,
alumni president, the event ‘is
being held in an effort to keep
the legacy of Leviticus ‘Uncle
Low’ Adderley alive.

“Uncle Lou was a mentor to
numerous young men; a won-
derful role model,” he said.

’Mr Adderley succumbed ‘to
cancer on May 24, 2004 — two
months after his 70th birthday.

The beloved teacher and a
deacon was the SAC’s first lay
minister, dedicating more than
40 years to the institution.

In 1998, he was one of the
first Bahamians to receive the
National Order of Merit for his
contribution to athletics. ;

Mr Narin said the aim of the
walk is to reduce the school’s
fees and to renew friendships
among alumni. “We hope that a
number of people will attend,
particularly those he has
touched,” he said. '

The walk will be held on Sat-
urday March 11, 2006 and will
begin at the school’s pool.The
walk will proceed to Marathon
‘east, on to Prince Charles Drive
and finally back to the school.

Trophies will be awarded to
winners. Registration fees are
$15 for adults and $5 for stu-
dents.

Child abuse a ‘serious problem’

DESPITE declaring that
child welfare and education are
priorities, the Bahamas lacks
sufficient funding to maintain
and improve standards in these
fields, the US Department’s
2005 Country Reports on
Human Rights stated.

Released yesterday, the
report also pointed out-that
child abuse and neglect
remained serious problems for
the country.

Government schools were
criticised for lacking basic edu-
cational materials, and for

i being overcrowded and sub-

standard.

The report said that cultural
biases often forced unwed,
pregnant teenagers to leave
school, and that a “quasi-gov-
ernmental group” continues to

seek to create an alternative
school programme for these
girls.

“Both the government and
civic organisations conducted
public education programmes
aimed at child abuse and
appropriate parenting behav-
ior. However, child abuse and
neglect remained serious prob-
lems. During the summer
months, the Royal Bahamas
Defence Force operated a hot-
line in response to an increase
in the number of reports of
missing or exploited children,”
the report read.

It went on to state that the
Ministry of Social Services esti-
mated that only one-third of
child abuse cases were report-
ed.

The report acknowledged

that under Bahamian law, per-
sons who have contact with a
child they believe has been sex-
ually abused are required to
report their suspicions to
police.

However, it highlighted that
the same reporting require-
ment does not apply to cases of
physical abuse — which health
care professionals believed
occurred quite frequently in
2005.

Responsible

The report further said that
the Ministry of Social Services
is responsible for abandoned
children up to 18 years of age,
but has very limited resources.
at its disposal to take care of

Government to take over
airport on Long Island

m@ By PAUL TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter

MINISTER of Transport
and Aviation Glenys Hanna-
Martin announced that the
government will buy the Stella
Maris airport in Long Island
from its private owners for $1
after repairs to the runway are
completed.

Mrs Hanna-Martin said
work on the Stella Maris run-
way will be commissioned
immediately at a cost .of
$550,000.

In the interim, the Dead-
man’s Cay Airport will be used
to accommodate all air traffic
into Long Island and the min-
istry also plans to carry out
some cosmetic work on its run-
way and the surrounding area,
she said.

This plan was a source of
comfort to many residents of
the area, who felt that the clo-
sure of Stella Maris’, runway
would have dealt a dramatic
blow to the island’s fledgling
economy.

“As I speak, the Ministry of
Works is contracting with a pri-

?~ vate firm for the immediate

installation of perimeter fenc-
ing at the Deadman’s Cay air-
port. Efforts are being made
to acquire modular buildings
to establish temporary premis-
es to house Customs and Immi-
gration services.so as to estab-
lish Deadman’s Cay as a port
-of entry on a temporary basis.

i GLENYS Hanna-Martin

“Additionally a perimeter
road will be constructed along
the.eastern end of the runway
so as to allows homeowners to
access their homes as they cur-
rently now cross the runway in
vehicles and on foot to access
their homes,” Mrs Hanna-Mar-
tin said.

The minister said she was
forced to close the Stella Maris
Airport on February 24 after
the runway was found to be in
a state of “extreme” disarray.

Mrs Hanna-Martin explained
that a leading independent avi-
.ation expert from the US firm
Edwards and Kelcey conducted
an inspection of the runway.

“The independent expert
advised that his inspection of
the runway was conducted
immediately. after a brief rain
shower. The rain highlighted



the unevenness of the runway

and made it perfectly clear that -

large areas of standing water,
up to several inches deep,
existing on the runway. Stand-
ing water of this magnitude can
pose a hazard to the smaller
general aviation aircraft.

“In addition to the ponding
water, there were numerous
areas of longitudinal and trans-
verse rutting. Potholes were
noted throughout the length
of the runway, and the major-
ity of the runway surface was
badly cracked and crazed.

“There were areas where the
surface was producing loose
material that could damage
propellers and certainly could
cause damage to turbine air-
craft engines,” she said.

Mrs Hanna-Martins said that
according to the’report, the ter-
minal may have been built in
the wrong location, as any

“parked aircraft could be consid-

ered a hazard to landing planes.

“Tn the opinion of the author
the decision to close. the air-
port was justified. The Stella
Maris airport does not meet
the certification requirements

of either the FAA or ICAO,

nor does the terminal aircraft
parking apron,” she said.

The Ministry of Transport
and Aviation is still in the
process on finding a location
for a single airport capable of
handling both local and inter-
national air traffic to Long
Island.

Iraq’s insecure democracy

MUCH OF the Bush administration’s
hopes for Iraq, and the transformative pow-
ers of democracy in the Middle East, lie in the
ruins of the Askariya mosque’s golden dome
in the city of Samarra. For the bombing of the
mosque exposed clearly what America wants
so much to deny: that in the present climate

- of lawlessness there are ethnic and religious
tensions in Iraq that are simply not: going to
allow for the kind of democracy the admin-
istration naively envisioned.

A degree of hypocrisy was also exposed
after elections in both Iraq and the West
Bank and Gaza. Despite the president’s
rhetoric about freedom on the march, the
first thing the Bush administration did after
Hamas won its victory was to search about for
ways to undermine the will of the Palestinian
people as expressed in a free and fair election.
Plots were reportedly hatched with Israel to
make life so miserable for the Palestinians
that they would go back to the polls in anoth-
er election and throw the recently victorious
Hamas out. Secretary of State Condoleezza
Rice got on her plane and flew off to drum up
support for denying the Palestinians money.

Both tactics are extremely short-sighted,
for the Palestinians have shown time-and
time again that they put their pride and their
national aspirations ahead of their comfort. If
this policy is continued, the United States
will lose its leverage to help shape events in
the West Bank and Gaza, relinquishing the
field to Iran and the more radical elements in
the Sunni Arab world. And then Hamas will
be even further away from recognizing Israel
or forswearing violence.

The old Israeli adage that “the Palestinians
must be made to understand in the deepest

recesses of their consciousness that they are:

a- defeated people,” as an Israeli army chief of
staff once expressed it; has never worked and
isn’t going to work now.

And no sooner did the Iraqis make their
choices in an acceptably fair election than
the Americans started to tell them what
America wanted in the way.of an Iraqi gov-
ernment. America’s capable and hard-work-
ing ambassador, Zalmay Khalilzad, was not
wrong in stressing that a government of
national unity was the best way for Iraq to
proceed, but to go public with the impotent
threat that the United States would with-
draw its support of the new Iraqi govern-

ment if it didn’t accede to America’s wishes
was simply a crude exercise in imperial
manipulation and humiliation that, in the
end, will do more harm than good. Even if he
gets his way, Khalilzad’s tantrum will simply
de-legitimize the results in the eyes of the
Iraqi people as the work of American pup-
ets.

Khalilzad is not wrong in his assessment
that sectarian militias will lead to “war-
lordism,” but the chance to talk the Iraqis
out of maintaining militias went by the board
with Donald Rumsfeld’s catastrophic failure
to secure the country after the US invasion.

‘For the classic pattern when a state falls apart,

and when people lack security, is for them to
fall back and rely upon what political psy-
chologists call the “survival group.”

It is well known that when a group feels
threatened it defines itself in the narrowest of
terms to distinguish friend from foe. It is only
when the group feels less threatened that it
can reach out to others to form a broader
definition of national purpose.

American ambassadors can threaten the

- Traqis all they want, but without security

Iraqis are simply not going to give up the
means of protecting their particular survival
group, their militias. And a broader definition

_ of national purpose won’t be possible as long

as there is no security. Nothing could have
made that point-more strongly than the after-
math of the golden dome bombing.

I remember the late Harvard psychologist
John Mack telling me that the psychological
functions served by identification with a sur-
vival group “are common to all conflicts; sur-
vival and a sense of self-worth. These are all
fundamental psychological principles, a sense
of having power versus powerlessness.”

. “At bottom, our survival group ... defines
our sense of self. Any political thinker who
seeks a fellowship of mankind must recognize
the psychological meaning of the identity of
self. Failure to do so will limit such concepts
as brotherhood of man to philosophical and
utopian visions and imaginings.”

And I am sorry to say that it is precisely the
“utopian visions and imaginings” of the Bush
administration that got us into this disaster in
the first place.

EDITOR, The Tribune
I LOVE to read The Tribune

-- daily, as I find your paper to

be well organised, balanced
and provide valuable content
on a variety of subject matters.

However, as a proud
Bahamian, I am somewhat
offended at the editorial stance
you have taken to support

~ sending these two‘ Cuban doc-
- tors to the United States to be

reunited with their families.

‘I have been travelling to
Cuba for the past 10 years. I
too, had preconceived notions
about how the people lived and
were being treated in their
country. Much of my misun-
derstanding has come from the
news received from the Amer-
ican media.

I have travelled throughout

Cuba and have many friends

there. I have never heard, seen
or have been told about any of
them, that they were being
politically victimised or knew
of others who were.

The main concern of the’

Cuban people is that they have
little means of earning money

_ as the state controls the econ-

omy and wages average from
US$7 to US$50 per month.
The main reason that they seek
to leave for other countries is
to make a better life and to
support their families. If they
could make a good income,

~ most would not leave. Cubans

are allowed to leave legally by
marriage or by invitation.
Many are living in Europe and
other countries. Those who

choose to go to the United.

States; do so because the
Cubans living there sell them
on the idea that Miami is par-
adise.

Many who flee, find that the

.. United States do not accept

their diplomas, certificates,
degrees or professional certi-
fication and have to go to
school all over again. Others
find that they have to work two
and three minimum wage jobs
to make ends meet.

The aggressive political
stance by Florida politicians
and their Congress persons
have caused the suffering to
intensify on the Cuban peo-
ple. Cuban-Americans can no
longer send monies monthly
to their families in Cuba.
Their visits are restricted to
once in every three years. The
Cuban government has to go
through European banks to
pay its bills in United States
dollars. Most banks and coun-

tory, it is clear that for the last
40 years, since America has

that country, which they had
to find ways and means to sur-

resorted to a one party political
system. Before this, they were
under a dictatorship, where
you had the wealthy and the
poor and discrimination
between the races was ram-
pant. Cuba was America’s

' playground and its economy

was intertwined with Ameri-
ca’s.

Since its current President

Attack on ‘repackaged’ policies

@ By CARA BRENNEN .
Tribune Staff Reporter

PROMISES made in last
month’s Speech from the
Throne are nothing more than
“old wine in new bottles” and
are proof that the PLP gov-
ernment has failed to keep its
word to the Bahamian people,
according to FNM Senator
Carl Bethel

Mr Bethel told the Senate
yesterday that he had counted
more than the thirty promises
and plans made by the gov-
ernment, which were merely
the same plans promised in its
first Speech from the Throne
delivered in May, 2002.

He claimed that Prime Min-
ister Perry Christie merely
took the unfulfilled portions
of the first session of his par-
liament and renamed them.

Giving an example, he said
that in 2002 it was the respon-
sibility of the Ministry of
Financial Services and Invest-
ments to act as an investment
board for Bahamians, and not
just for foreign investors.

He said that the newly pro-
posed Domestic Investment
Board from last month’s
speech is just a “repackaging”
of the ministry’s department
with the same mandate.

“Same old wine dressed up
in a new bottle,” he said.

Senator Bethel said this was

not the only case of passing off
old policies as new initiatives.

He said that were many of
these such “new” promises

throughout the Speech, includ-

ing the proposed legislation
for the integrity in public life
act, and legislation to regulate
the time shares industry.

Assurances to develop a
tourism development zone
and to revive dyifig Family
Island economies were also
unfilled promises from the first
speech, he said.

The senator added that gov-
ernment had also failed in its
promise to build a cultural vil-
lage at Arawak Cay, and to
conduct an intense campaign
in major offshore markets to
attract a more sizable share of
the international market.

Mr Bethel further claimed
that the government made no
effort to improve the e-com-
merce industry of the Bahamas.

He said that there were
countless more examples of
failed promises he could give.

“In your personal life your
words should mean something,
but even more in your public
life a government’s word
should mean something.

it should with everything in its

the senator said.

Mr Bethel continued by saying
that the Speech from the Throne
suffered from the same problems
which appeared to affect the
prime minister: “A lack of qual-
ity and substance has been a hall-

mark of his party’s governance of
our country. It (the speech) is
full of sound and fury.”

He said that while Bahami-
ans may have appreciated the
pomp and pageantry at the
opening of parliament, and had
been glad to see newly appoint-
ed Governor General Arthur
Hanna, “they paid little or no
attention to the actual context
of the speech.”

Incentives urged
for GB businesses

‘@ By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Staff Reporter

THE government needs to
ensure that no part of Grand
‘Bahama is left behind in the dri-
ve for.economic prosperity,
Senator Caleb Outten told the
Senate yesterday.

Senator Outten said that
while he agrees with this year’s
Speech from the Throne, which
suggested that the county is in
“remarkably robust condition”,
he would like to see special
incentives for business owners
‘in west Grand Bahama.

“T am certain the business
owners of west Grand Bahama
would love to enjoy some of the
benefits of our Freeport coun-
terparts as it relates to bringing
in supplies and equipment. I
believe that now is the oppor-



tune time for duty free conces-
sions from government to be
extended to the west.”

Terminal

Mr Outten added that while
the number of cruise ships call-
ing into Lucayan Harbour con-
tinues to increase, a govern-
ment-owned cruise ship termi-
nal on the island would make
even more of an impact.

“T see Grand Bahama being
positioned to become a home
port to the fastest growing
cruise ship industry — it increas-
es airlift and cruise ship visitors
in one smart move,” he said.

Mr Outten stressed that more
has to be done to create entre-
preneurial opportunities for
Grand Bahamians in general.



He said that this should
include securing deeds and titles
for generational land dwellers,
as many persons who wish to
build businesses on their prop-
erties are denied a chance
because they cannot secure the
papers to use as collateral.

“It is imperative that we
ensure a thriving small business
sector. .. as we develop and
welcome the foreign investor
we really must not forget or
downplay the power of giving
areal chance to small business
dreams within our borders. It
is the backbone of a flourish-
ing economy.”

Also speaking yesterday was
Senator Yvette Turnquest. She
said that Bahamians need to be
aware of the opportunities for
entrepreneurial investment,that

THE TRIBUNE



Leaders must listen to themselves

EADERS really must
listen to themselves
when they speak. They hear
themselves, that’s for certain, but
they must also listen to them-
selves. If they do, they will speak
reasoning rather than rhetoric.
At the Grand Bahama Busi-
ness Outlook, I, like many oth-
ers, listened to Prime Minister
Perry Christie’s keynote speech.
Given the lateness of the politi-
cal hour and the economic hard-
ship suffered by the island over
the past several years due to
storms and other factors, one lis-
tened for a well thought out,
clear and definitive statement
from the nation’s chief execu-
tive that would speak honestly
to needs of Grand Bahamians.
If Prime Minister Christie lis-
tened to himself speak, I believe
that even he would agree that
he could have done a better job
addressing the Grand Bahama
business community. Why?

FORGET ROYAL OASIS?

Fis: it really was unrea-
. sonable for the PM to
tell Grand Bahama to “forget
Royal Oasis”, even if he sug-
gested, jokingly of course, that
on the basis of what he does or
does not do about it, Grand
Bahamians could vote for or
against him.

The fact is that the closure of

YOUR CONNECTION”

that economic enterprise has
struck a critical blow to Grand
Bahama’s economy, affecting the
lives of thousands of families,
from the 1,600 displaced workers
to the many businesses that ben-
efited from their spending as well
as the money generated by their
former workplace.

Forgetting Royal Oasis is dif-

‘ficult, yea impossible, for peo-

ple who live on Grand Bahama
and who must drive their high-
priced gasoline vehicles, catch

. struggling bus franchises or walk

depressingly pass the moribund
property that once represented
the economic mainstay of the
commercial district in which it
rested.

Forget Royal Oasis! One
would have to have a fit of
amnesia to do so - a convenience
for a governing politician, no
doubt, but hardly commonsense
for a struggling people.

LOOK TO GINN?

Ses the PM asked
Grand Bahama to look
to GINN’s purported $3 billion
investment. The PM may not
realise it, but the promise of
GINN for Grand Bahamians is
just that, a promise, and for an
island that has, like a prom date,
been waiting a while for some-
thing real to happen again,
promises simply don’t cut it.
Besides, Grand, Bahamians

THE WORLD

STRAIGHT UP TALK



ZH

are beginning to come to terms
with even the promise of GINN.
They realise that GINN repre-
sents, by its own-and the gov-
ernment’s admission, a 20-year
proposition.

They understand that the pro-
ject has substantial infrastruc-
tural preparation to do before it
gets fully started, preparation
that will take months and per-
haps years to complete.

Grand Bahamians are aware
that GINN will represent in the
first instance primarily construc-
tion jobs and that those jobs will
be provided at a pace set by the
success of the GINN Corpora-
tion in selling the thousands of
acres of Bahamian land pur-
chased at a substantial discount
for a premium to wealthy for-
eigners, which is itself a matter of
speculation.

Even so, construction jobs,
while helpful for sure, will not
benefit those many unemployed
in Grand Bahama who have no
skills in the area. Further,
Grand Bahamians know that
the GINN Corporation’s invest-
ment will not be anywhere near
$3 billion and that that figure
represents the potential value

bool

of all the homes, condos and
hotels built by GINN and others
on property in West End over
20 years if, and that is a big ‘if’,
all is built.

GINN’s investment may be at
most some $500 million, which is
substantial in itself but hardly $3
billion. Finally, Grand Bahami-
ans know that GINN promises to
create an estimated 4,000 jobs
over 20 years. That is about 200
jobs per year.

That is hardly an economic

NG

_ impact akin to Atlantis, which

in its first phase within just a cou-
ple of years created some 5,000
permanent jobs. To ask Grand
Bahamians to forget Royal
Oasis, a business that provided
permanent jobs for some 1,600
people for years, and look to
GINN, a speculative investment
that proposes to provide 200 jobs
a year for 20 years, is simply
naive.

TAKE ADVANTAGE OF

WHAT OPPORTUNITIES? |

hird, the PM preached,

and I mean literally
preached, that the challenge was
to find a way for Grand Bahami-
ans to “take advantage of the
economic opportunities being
provided”. —

Grand Bahama was the last
place in the Bahamas where the
PM needed to provide such a
sermon. The fact of the matter is
that in 1992, eighty per cent of
the licensees of the Grand
Bahama Port Authority were
foreigners and 20 per cent
Bahamians.

Today, just the opposite is the
case, as 80 per cent are Bahami-
ans and 20 per cent foreigners.
Grand Bahamians are entrepre-
neurial and if there is a business
opportunity to be had, they will
seize it.

What they need is a robust
economy with real investments

__in the ground.

They don’t need announce-

““ments, funny investment arith-

metic or sermons about doing

what they know how to do.

Grand Bahamians need the
Port Authority to go out and get
investors, as it does, and for the
government to be business-like
in executing its role in facilitating
those investments.

Incidentally, it was really cal-
lous that in the end, struggling
Grand Bahamians were told to
take advantage of opportunities
that did not now exist in their
island while the PM taunted
them about the prospects of an
unprecedented announcement
he was getting ready to make
that would dramatically change,
for the better; the prospects of
Mayaguana.

In the Bahamas, Bahamians,
in proportions similar to that
found elsewhere in world, take
advantage of business opportu-
nities. In the most highly devel-
oped economies in the world,
less than 20 per cent of citizens
are entrepreneurs and the failure
rate among this relatively small
segment of the population is as
high as 50 per cent.

It is strange to hear our polit-
ical leaders speak of having
Bahamians own more of the
economy while in the same
breadth patting themselves on
the backs for approving foreign-
ers’ ownership of more of it. .

.They ask Baliamians to take
advantage of opportunities that
foreigners are providing while
in the same breadth preaching
about our need to affirm our
independence.

This talk of owning our econ-

omy comes from leaders who
did not own much or any of it
before they took office and, as
the saying goes, a man can only
lead me as far as he himself has
gone.

Leaders must truly listen to
themselves. In doing so, they will
learn to speak more wisely and
will in fact instruct themselves
in prudent paths before setting

- out to try to instruct others in

the same.
, Ihave no beef with the prime
minister. I believe he means well
but meaning well is not the same
as knowing what well means.
At the Grand Bahama Busi-
ness Outlook he said that he was
now hearing the footsteps of

those opposite him and had less
“patience with Lehman Brothers:;

in its hold uP on the Royal Oasis
issue.

Well, there are many Bahami-
ans who are hearing the pitter
patter of lost opportunity and
who are growing impatient with
those entrusted to efficiently pro-
vide the same but who appear
not to be doing so.

DR NOTTAGE TOEING
THE LINE

W hen Dr Nottage
decided to return to

the PLP one expected that he
would be a team player but I
must confess, I did not expect
him to start so soon and so
incredibly.

Dr Nottage, who before
rejoining the PLP lamented the
pace of its progress and its dis-

‘organised approach to gover-

nance, said the Christie admin-
istration was being unfairly crit-
icised for the manner of its gov-
ernance and that it was taking
as much time:as it was in order
to plan rather than “shoot from
the hip” like the previous admin-
istration did.

Besides the many things that
contradict this statement, it did
seem odd coming from Dr Not-
tage, given his recent political
voyage.

Would anyone suggest it was
planning that led Dr Nottage to
leave the PLP after being defeat-
ed by Mr Christie in a leader-
ship bout; form a new political
organisation based on a philoso-.
phy of governance that he said
was different than that of both
the PLP and:the FNM; contest.a
general election against the PLP
and the FNM;.and: then aban-
don his leadership of the organ-
isation’he founded to return to
the PLP, being unable to con-
vince many of his key’ leaders to
follow him?

I have a great deal’ of respect
for Dr Nottage but I would hope
that he maintains credibility in
his pronouncements even as he
tries to balance the difficult busi-
ness of toing the party line with
speaking truth and being rea-
sonable.

Poultry products |
ban considered

CONSIDERATION will be
given to imposing a ban on the
importation of eggs and poul-
try products into the Bahamas.

This announcement was
made following a surprise
inspection by Minister of Agri-
culture and Marine Resources
Leslie Miller to the Grand
Bahama Food Company’s
chicken farm on Monday.

Mr Miller said he was
impressed by the farm’s egg and
poultry production facilities.

The farm, located on the
Grand Bahama Highway, sup-
plies the bulk of the eggs and
poultry consumed in Freeport,
the Northern Bahamas and
New Providence.

The minister’s visit followed
complaints by Nassau traders
and consumers who said they
are being supplied with sub-
standard eggs from Grand
Bahama.

Complainants reported
receiving “cracked, broken and
dirty eggs” according to a gov-
ernment statement.

The minister’s party was
received at the farm by owner
Minas Vardaoulis, who led a

- tour of the production facilities.

Mr Vardaoulis told the min-
ister that the farm has the
capacity, | to supply all the eggs

and poultry consumed in the
Bahamas, and indicated that a
number of hen houses, now
unused, could be put into pro-
duction to handle increases in
the demand for eggs.

Mr Miller declared at the end
of his visit that he considers the
production facilities at the farm
“first-class” and said that the

whole question of eggs and
poultry will be reviewed by his
ministry with a view to ending
the importation of these prod-
ucts.

“Having seen similar opera-
tions in the United States,” the
minister pointed out, “I don’t
think there is a farm anywhere
in the United States, compara-
ble in size, that has the capabil-
ity, the machinery, ingenuity
and inventory as does the
Grand Bahama farm.”

“T think it’s a first-class oper-
ation that any Bahamian should
be proud to show any foreigner
who has a farm in Florida and
elsewhere. I am very impressed
with what I’ve seen, and there is
nothing wrong with the local
eggs or chicken produced here.

“A new day is going to come
in 'the poultry and egg industry,
and the Grand Bahama farm
should see an upsurge in bird
and egg purchases by all
importers in New Providence,
including the major food stores
and farms seeking permits from

the mamisty to import Cees. re be

“This meeting has significant
importance for the formulation
of policy that would govern the
development of youth in the
Caribbean and also in the Com-
monwealth countries and,
indeed, the world,” Mr Bren-
nen said.

He noted that the visit by the
Commonwealth Secretariat and
regional representative is to
ensure that all the administra-
tive arrangements thé host
country is responsible for can
be “practically” implemented

to ensure a successful meeting. .

‘Director of Youth Autherine
Turnquest said the significance
of the meeting is that it also will
be attended by youth delegates
from each Commonwealth
country. .

She added that both meetings
are being held in May, which is
designated as National Youth
Month.

The CYMM is being held
under the theme “Empowering
Youth for the Eradication of
Poverty, HIV/AIDS and
Crime”. - a

“What is also very exciting is
that the meeting will allow the
Bahamas the opportunity to
continue in its role in the dis-
cussions on youth empower-
ment and development in the
region and in the Common-
wealth,” Ms Turnquest said.

“Tt will provide the Ministry
of Youth, Sports and Housing
with the opportunity to engage
in a number of bilateral
exchanges on matters of mutu
al interest. It will also refocus
the attention of the Bahamian
public on the importance of
youth, especially iu light of the
implementation ot the National
Youth Programme.”

The youth delegates will dis-
cuss the progress and achieve-
ment of the Commonwealth
Youth Programme (CYP) in
four strategic areas — Youth
Enterprise Development,
Youth Networks and Gover-
nance, Youth Participation and
Youth Work Education and
Training — as mandated by the
Commonwealth Heads of Gov-
ernment Meeting (CHOGM).

A new CYP strategic plan for
2006-2008 will be presented to

ministers for their considera-

tion and approval. The meet-
ing will discuss the framework
for reviewing CYP’s Plan of
Action for Youth. Empower-
ment up-to 2015. ,

“What this meeting would
also do is express the govern-
ment’s serious commitment to
young people and youth devel-
opment and further enhance the
Bahamas’ reputation as the
principal site for international
conferences and boost the econ-
omy in general,” Ms Turnquest
said.

Ignatius Takawira, director
and head of youth affairs Com-
monwealth Youth Programme,
said he was pleased with the

Mr Takawira said the Com-
monwealth Youth Ministers
Meeting has a special focus in
the Commonwealth Secretari-
at, in that it is a programme set
up by governments to look at
the very important constituents
of the Commonwealth, for the
present and the future.

He added that for most of the
developing member states, the
majority of the population are
very young and “unless positive
development is undertaken in
young people as the future of
their country, most developing
countries in the Commonwealth

igy io have a very bleak



According to Mr Takawira,

such as poverty,
1S and crime are chal-
lenges facing a number of devel-
oping Commonwealth coun-
tries.

“If we are talking about
development, if we are talking
about the future, we have to
make sure the young people are
in the centre,” he said.

He added that, during the -
CYMM, young people also
would be invited to discuss
issues peculiar to them, and the
solutions to those problems.

“We hope to have a very suc-
cessful ministers” meeting result-
ing in programmes that would
go some way to address issues
affecting young people in the
‘Bahamas, in the region, in the
Commonwealth as a whole, and
a contribution to the world
effort against poverty,




HIV/AIDS and crime,” Mr
Takawira said.

"The implications for future mur-

The Privy Council has gone some

tencing that the punishment
imposed on a convicted defendant
should be proportionate to the
gravity of the crime of which he
has been convicted.

Second, it ruled that the criminal
culpability of those convicted of
murder "varies very widely".

"Under an entrenched and cod-
ified constitution on the Westmin-
ster model, consistently with the
tule of law, any discretionary judg-
ment on the measure of punish-
ment which a convicted defendant
should suffer must be made by the
judiciary and not by the execu-
tive."

They said that by the-end of the
eighteenth and the beginning of
the nineteenth centuries, only a

_ small proportion of those sen-

tenced to death, even for murder,
were executed in England and
Wales. -

"In the final resort, the most
important consideration is that
those who are entitled to the pro-
tection of human rights guarantees
should enjoy that protection," said

Edward Fitzgerald, QC, repre-
senting Bowe and Davis, argued
that it is important that judges
should have a discretion in apply-
ing the death penalty.

Mr Glinton said that if Bahami-
an judges had a discretion, and mit-
igating circumstances had been
taken into account, the 16 persons
who were hanged at Her Majesty's
Prison probably would not have
been executed.

Forrester Bowe Jr was convicted

row at Fox Hill Prison for eight

Forrester Bowe, who was

THE Bahamas has been
named by scientists as a habitat

where indigenous mammal.

species are at risk of becoming
extinct.

This; according to one local
environmentalist, is the result
of the country’s policy of
“uncontrolled development”

and the failure of legislators to’

adequately protect delicate
species.
The science, engineering and.

eae news website “Scen- , »

a”

reported yesterday that
‘eaeerchors from Imperial Col-
lege London have compiled a
list of countries where animals
now exist safely but face a
“latent risk” of extinction.
“Islands. situated from
Indonesia to the South Pacific,
the Bahamas and Greenland

, were among the most delicate.
' regions,” the report said.

It said that the team of sci-

_entists identified species with

the highest latent risk by com-
paring current extinction risk
with the level of risk suggested
by biological traits.

“Areas where land mammals

thrive are expected to suffer
from the growth of the human
population and changes in habi-
tat,” the report said.

-No Bahamian species were
specifically mentioned in the

‘ report, however Sam Dun-
combe, president of, the envi- .
ronmental agency: ReEarth, said -
‘that a large indigenous rodent

known as the hutia, the funnel-
eared bat and the Bahamian

‘raccoon are some of the land

mammals that could become
candidates for extinction.
This, she said, is thanks to the
willingness of successive
Bahamian governments to

“rape and pillage” the environ-

ment.
“We have 22 species of
marine mammal. in the

Bahamas. Because they have
no protection from things like
harmful noise, they may also be
at risk,” she added.

The government recently
passed the Marine Mammal
Protection Act — however the
legislation was criticised by
environmentalists.as ineffec-
tive?

-The Scenta report said that
scientists are hoping conserva-
tion agencies will be able to pre:

-vent declines. inthe at-risk
‘regions “before it is too late”.

Imperial College biologist
Marcell Cardillo was quoted as
saying: “We wanted to deter-
mine which areas are going to
be the most sensitive to human
impact so we can prioritise con-
servation projects.

“Conservation is a crisis Se

‘cipline. Because there are so

many species on the verge of
extinction, that’s where most of
the effort goes.”

_ Amigo returns

from appointmen



for Mardi Gras

BAHAMIAN potcake star
“Amigo” has returned from
New Orleans where he was
King Of Barkus in the annual
animal Mardi Gras Parade.

Amigo has had a busy year
taking his message abroad as



JAN FEB

MAR

the star of the Humane Society
of the United States (HSUS)
BEKiND Campaign.
Accompanied by his
“human,” Frances Singer Hay-
ward, Amigo, dressed in a gold
crown and purple cape, sailed

ince October 2003,
and the fuel sur-
harge, which is








down Canal Street on his spe-
cially built king’s float.

Huge crowds attended the
event, one of the most popular
parades of Mardi Gras.

To the music of Dixieland
bands and shouts of “hail Ami-
go” and “hail the king” the for-
mer stray potcake from Grand
Bahama, happily acknowledged
the crowds of fans.

This year, the parade took on
a special poignancy as proceeds
benefited animal welfare organ-
isations in Louisiana which are
still dealing with the displace-
ment of thousands of animals
following Hurricane Katrina.

Amigo has been very active
in rescue efforts as the star of
BEKiND, which raised hun-
dreds of thousands of dollars
for the HSUS Disaster Relief
Fund through the sale of the
BEKiND ‘cause collars’ (dog
collars) and matching wrist-
bands for their human compan-
ions...‘

In addition, the Amigo
Express Rescue Expedition
travelled to New Orleans in ear-
ly October, bringing back a
coachload of dogs and cats to
the Animal Rescue Fund facili-
ties in East Hampton, New
York.

Amigo has appeared on
CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News
and has been featured in
numerous newspaper and mag-
azine articles.

In early December Amigo
and Frances Singer Hayward
were given the Hollywood Life
Magazine Breakthrough Award

in Los Angeles, presented by

movie star Alicia Silverstone,
for their contributions to ani-
mal welfare. |
The show will be aired on
Showtime in mid April.

BJ OHN Barrow

on approach to West

@ EGYPT
Cairo

IT is not just East and West
that are divided over contro-
versial cartoons of the Prophet
Muhammad. Two of the most
popular Muslim preachers on
Arab television are feuding bit-

terly over whether dialogue or ©

protest is the best approach in
the clash of civilizations, accord-
ing to Associated Press.

In the pro-dialogue corner is
Amr Khaled, who has become
wildly popular among young
Muslims and women for his
youthful style and his sermons
applying Islam to the day-to-
day cares of modern life.

The 38-year-old Khaled is
heading to Denmark — the heart
of the controversy — for a con-
ference on Friday between
Christian and Muslim religious
leaders aimed at discussing the
fallout of the prophet cartoons.

But for Sheik Youssef el-
Qaradawi — a 79-year-old cleric
who hosts a weekly show on the
Arab satellite station Al-Jazeera
— the trip to Copenhagen looks
like a surrender.

“Dialogue about what?” el-
Qaradawi said on Al-Jazeera.
“You have to have a common
ground to have a dialogue with
your enemy. But after insulting
what is sacred to me, they
should apologise,” he added.

“The dialogue that Amr
Khaled and his group, the so
called new preachers, is break-
ing with the consensus,” he said.

The split between the two
prominent tele-clerics has
touched a wider debate over
how to deal with the West and
promote the Islamic world’s
interests.

The cartoons — first published
in a Danish paper last Septem-
ber then reprinted in European
papers in January and Febru-
ary — sparked a wave of protests
around the Arab and Islamic
world. Some turned violent,
with protesters killed in Libya
and Afghanistan and several
European embassies attacked.

The cartoons were seen as an
insult to Muhammad, depicting
him as violent and primitive.
Sunni Muslim tradition bans
any image of the prophet, since
depicting him risks insulting him
or encouraging idolatry.

The protests have largely sub-
sided amid calls by Islamic and
Western leaders for a stop to vio-
lence. But the bitterness remains
on both sides: Some Muslims feel
the West intentionally sought to
insult Islam’s most revered fig-

ure, while some in the West see ~

Muslims as violently seeking to
stifle free speech.

Last month, Khaled and a
conference of 40 Islamic schol-
ars said it was time to “move
on to the stage of discussion.”

“The deep-rooted solution of
this problem is through dialogue
to reach an understanding and
coexistence between the
nations,” Khaled said.

For Khaled, the cartoons con-
troversy is an opportunity to
engage with the West rather
than continue longtime clashes
over the grievances many Mus-
lims feel toward Europe and the
United States.

"We have to lay a future base
to build our own renaissance,”
Khaled told Associated Press
on Wednesday.

“There are two schools of
thought. One is that all of our
actions should be reaction to
what happened to us in the past
20 years, which is a lot. The oth-
er school wants the Islamic
community to take the initia-
tive to plan for the coming 20
years,” he said.

“God be with you Amr
Khaled,” the independent
Egyptian weekly Al-Dustour
said in a front-page headline in
support of his;trip to Denmark.

Khaled has emerged as the
most prominent of a new gener-
ation of Islamic leaders — distinct
with his designer suits and trim
moustache, rather than the beard
and robes worn by traditional
clerics, such as el-Qaradawi.
~ Khaled started preaching
almost 10 years ago in social
clubs and gatherings in private
homes in Egypt. He drew
enthusiastic, young followers
from the middle and upper mid-
dle class with his moderate
advice and modern style.

He has a weekly programme

, on the Saudi religious channel

Iqraa, in which he avoids polit-
ical issues, telling stories about
the life of the Muhammad and
God’s mercy instead of punish-
ment.

His lack of formal religious
training has brought him criti-
cism from traditional clerics. He
studied accounting, though he is
currently pursuing Islamic stud-
ies in London.

El-Qaradawi — also Egyptian
— is known as a hardliner who
often weighs in on politics. He
has sparked controversy by con-
doning attacks on American

civilians in Iraq and issuing a-

fatwa religious. edict allowing
kidnappings in Iraq, though for-
bidding the killing of hostages.
His supporters in the feud
accuse Khaled of giving up
before the West makes conces-
sions over the cartoons issue.
“The Muslims’ uprising hasn’t
born fruit yet, and the West
wants us to get out of it without
any gains,” Egyptian columnist
Selim Azouz wrote Wednesday
in the Qatari daily Al-Raya.
Fahmi Howeidy, a prominent
Egyptian Islamic thinker who
writes in the Arab daily Asharq
al-Awsat, said Khaled was
weakening the Islamic world’s
hand by going to Denmark,
homeland of the newspaper that
sparked the controversy.
“Who should be approaching
whom?” he said. “The newspa-
per should approach the victim,
or Vice versa?"

& LONDON

THE governments of
Britain and Iréland are weigh-
ing “a number of possibilities”
for reviving a joint Catholic-
Protestant administration in
Northern Ireland, Irish Prime
Minister Bertie Ahern said
Wednesday after talks at 10
Downing Street, according to
Associated Press. '

Ahern, speaking after hour-
long talks with Prime Minis-
ter Tony Blair, said both gov-
ernments were trying their

-best to negotiate a compro-

mise between the two opposed

forces who would lead any,

Northern Ireland coalition: lan
Paisley's Democratic Union-
ists, who represent most of the
British Protestant majority,
and Gerry Adams’ Sinn Fein,
the Irish Republican Army-
linked party that represents
most Catholics.

- Those two parties remain

poles apart on whether North- ..

ern Ireland’s legislature should
be reconvened with no agree-

ment in place first for electing |

a cross-community adminis-
tration.

Sinn Fein demands.a firm -:
date for the 108-member leg- «

islature. to elect an adminis-
tration. The legislature has not
met since October 2002, when
power-sharing fell apart over

“an IRA spying scandal.

~ But the Democratic Union-

ists demand new rules that’

would allow the legislature to
operate on its own for months,
even years, without an admin-
istration being formed. Under
current rules, both parties in a
reconvened legislature must

both parties within six weeks —
otherwise the legislature
would collapse.

Last week, British and Irish
officials were drafting a for-
mula that leaned in the Demo-
cratic Unionists’ favor. But
both governments retreated
from their recommendation,
and decided not to publish it
Wednesday as originally
planned, because of fierce crit-
icism from Sinn Fein.

“Today we were looking at
a number of possibilities,”
Ahern said outside Downing
Street. “We have listened to
the parties and have a very
good sense of where they are
all at, and where there are
agreements, and where there
are disagreements.”

Ahern was asked if the gov-
ernments would publish their
compromise recommendations
before the summer, when

' Northern Ireland typically suf-

fers street violence over
Protestant parades that make
negotiations difficult. He
replied, “Definitely.”

.. 4 “We want all the parties to
-help us in this. This is not just

for the two governments,”
Ahern said. “But if.it's left to
the two governments, the two
governments will give the
leadership and make the deci-
sions if that's the way it has to
be. But certainly we would like

“to find'a way: to carry everyone

with us.”

Blair declined to comment.

Both prime ministers have
spent the past two years press-
ing the Democratic Unionists
and Sinn Fein to revive the
kind of coalition that existed in
Northern Ireland from
December 1999 to October
2002. That four-party admin-
istration was the intended cor-
nerstone of the U.S.-brokered
Good Friday peace accord of
1998.

The Democratic Unionists,
who became the largest party
in Northern Ireland in the
province's 2003 legislative

‘ elections, say they will not co-

operate with Sinn Fein until
the IRA disbands.

The IRA last year
renounced violence for politi-
cal purposes and handed over
its arms dumps to disarma-
ment officials, but police say
the group remains involved in
a range of criminal rackets.

Camilla
becomes
a fashion

i LONDON

THE Duchess of Cornwall on
Wednesday joined model Kate
Moss and actress Naomi Watts
as one of Tatler magazine's
British "fashion icons" of 2005,
according to Associated Press.

That Moss made the top 10
was no surprise — her seemingly-
effortless style is revered by
British women — but the fact
that Prince Charles’ wife joined
her was. : cH

The 58-year-old, duchess,
“wowed us in her red engage-'
ment dress, Philip Treacy.hats
and Robinson Valentine wed-'
ding outfit,” the magazine’said.'

“Camilla is suddenly stunning.”’

Joining her in the top 10 is:
16-year-old Peaches Geldof, the:
daughter of Live Aid founder:
Bob Geldof. The editors said:
she epitomized the “scruffy,
teenage King’s Road thing”,
referring to the west-London
street where outfits usually cost
more than the average
teenager's allowance. ‘

Rounding out the top 10 were
artists Tracey Emin and Sam

~ Taylor-Wood, model. Yasmin

Le Bon, stylist Charlotte Stock-
dale, actress Rosamund Pike
and socialite Daphne Guinness.

‘BELARUS. police on
Wednesday detained five work-

paign of the main opposition
candidate running in presiden-

tinued to pressure challengers
to the authoritarian incumbent,
Alexander Lukashenko, accord-
ing to Associated Press.

With just 11 days remaining
before the vote, opposition can-
didate Alexander Milinkevich
held a rally outside a Minsk
movie theatre, telling some
1,000 voters that Lukashenko's
government was afraid of los-
ing the March 19 vote. »

Afterward, police detained
five campaign workers and oth-
er supporters. ‘

"This is absolutely illegal,"
Milinkevich told the crowd.
"Today's regime knows that it
losing the people and therefore
it is resorting to any methods."

Lukashenko has ruled with
an iron fist since 1994, quash-
ing dissent and opposition and
maintaining his grip on power
through votes dismissed as ille-
gitimate by his. critics. The Unit-

@ LONDON

AN author who claims “The
Da Vinci Code” copied ideas
from his work insisted in a
British court Wednesday that
there are major similarities
between his nonfiction book
and Dan Brown’s crypto-reli-
gious thriller — but conceded
there are also substantial dif-
ferences, according to Associ-
ated Press.

“We were writing historical
conjecture, and Mr Brown was
writing a novel,” said Michael
Baigent, co-author of The Holy
Blood and the Holy Grail.

“One would expect their per-
spectives to be marginally dif-
ferent, if not substantially dif-
ferent.”

Baigent and his co-author
Richard Leigh are suing Da
Vinci Code publisher Random
House at Britain’s High Court
for infringing the copyright of
their 1982 book. They claim
Brown’s blockbuster “appro-
priated the architecture” of
their work, which explores the-
ories that Jesus married Mary
Magdalene, the couple had a
child and the bloodline survives.

If the writers succeed in secur-
ing an injunction to bar the use

PAGE 20, THURSDAY, MARCH 9, 2006

of their material, they could hold
up the scheduled May 19 release
of The Da Vinci Code film star-
ring Tom Hanks.

Random House lawyers
argue that the ideas in dispute
are so general they are not pro-
tected by copyright.

A lawyer for the publisher,
John Baldwin, also said many
of the ideas in The Holy Blood
and the Holy Grail did not fea-
ture in Brown’s book, a mix-
ture of code-breaking, art his-
tory, religion and mystical lore
that has sold more than 40 mil-
lion copies since it was pub-
lished in 2003.

“Your statement that Mr
Brown reached all the same his-
torical conjecture you did is fair-
ly misleading,” Baldwin told
Baigent.

Baigent insisted that Brown
“used the results of our histori-
cal conjecture".

“The Da Vinci Code’ uses
the tips of the icebergs that
were produced by the research
that we did,” Baigent said.

New Zealand-born Baigent
was appearing for a second day
of tense exchanges with Bald-
win. At one point, he acknowl-
edged using “infelicitous phrase-
ology” in his witness statement.

YOUR CONNECTION®T



“Ts infelicitous your long
word for being wrong?” said
Baldwin.

In a day of testimony that’

sometimes evoked a university
seminar, lawyers, judge and wit-
ness pored over well-thumbed
copies of “The Da Vinci Code,”
seeking parallels and diver-
gences with “The Holy Blood
and the Holy Grail.”

Baldwin read passages from
the novel out loud to stress the
differences from the earlier
book, which proposed that a
secret order called the Priory
of Sion existed to preserve the
bloodline founded by Jesus
Christ and Mary Magdalene.

“There’s no mention of the
Priory’s oath to keep its true
nature hidden in The Holy
Blood and the Holy Grail, is
there?” Baldwin asked. Baigent
replied: “No. I concede that.”

“There’s no mention of the
Priory protecting the tomb of
Mary Magdalene, is there?”
Baldwin asked.

“Not explicitly, no,” said
Baigent.

Judge Peter Smith told
Baigent that it appeared some
theories put forward in “The
Da Vinci Code” were “exactly
the opposite” of passages in the

Serbia challenges UN court’
right to try it for genocide

@ THE HAGUE,
Netherlands

SERBIA on Wednesday
challenged the right of the
U.N.’s highest court to hear a
suit by Bosnia accusing the
former Yugoslav republic of
genocide, in the first case of a
country standing trial for
humanity’s worst crime,
according to Associated Press.

Opening their defense,
lawyers for Serbia- Montene-
gro, the successor state for the
defunct Yugoslavia, also
argued to the International
Court’ of Justice that the
Balkan wars were waged by
etlinic groups — Serbs, Mus-
lims‘ and’ Croats — not coun-
tries?’ '.-

“THis dispute is between
two sovereign states, neither
of which existed when the
conflict began,” Tibor Varady
said“*It'was an ethnic con-
flict? ‘and the dividing lines
between the warring parties
weré ethnic lines” that did not
coincide with the states carved
in‘the aftermath, he said.

Bosnia- -Herzegovina is seek-
ing: ‘a precedent- setting deci-
sion from the 16 justices that
would hold a state — Serbia
—. responsible for genocide
fot the first time, rather than
individuals. Bosnia conclud-



YOUR CONNECTION®TO THE WORLD

ed 10 days of arguments on
Tuesday, and Serbia will now
have equal time to respond.

A ruling in Bosnia’s favor
could open the way for claims
of billions of dollars in com-
pensation. Croatia has a simi-
lar case pending before the
U.N. tribunal, also known as
the world court.

Serbia tried to distance
itself from the regime of Slo-
bodan Milosevic, which
orchestrated the wars in the
early 1990s that killed an esti-
mated 200,000 people.

Trial

Milosevic was ousted in
2000 and extradited to the
U.N. war crimes tribunal, a
separate court that also sits in
The Hague. His trial for geno-
cide and other war crimes in
Bosnia, Croatia and Kosovo
has gone on for four years.

“I find myself in a paradox.
I must defend a regime to
which I was opposed,” said
Radoslav Stojanovic, the head
of the legal team, repeatedly
referring to his country as
“democratic Serbia.”

Stojanovic said the court,
which adjudicates disputes
between U.N. member states,
is not empowered to heat

Bosnia’s suit because Serbia
was not a U.N. member at the
time.

The United Nations sus-
pended Yugoslavia in 1992,
and Serbia-Montenegro
regained entry in 2001.

Ruling

Bosnia submitted its suit to
the world court in 1993. Ina

preliminary ruling three years

later, the court struck down
Serbia’s challenge to its juris-
diction, but said Belgrade
could raise the issue again at a
later date.

Stojanovic urged the parties
to abandon the legal proceed-
ings and seek a “diplomatic
solution,” arguing that any
ruling by the court would
inflame tensions.

“I fear this will result in an
increase of political extrem-
ism,” no matter what the court
decides, he said.

Varady told the judges in
the century-old Peace Palace
that the case brought by the
government in Sarajevo did
not represent all of Bosnia,
which comprises. a Muslim-

. Croat federation and an

autonomous Serbian Repub-
lic. The Serbian Republic
opposes the suit.

that genocide occurred in
Bosnia. Two army officers
have been convicted of com-

The world court, however,
is not bound by the rulings of
other courts and must decide

Brazil army blocks key

ARMY troops and federal

roads Wednesday in an attempt
to recover rifles stolen from an
army barracks, according to
Associated Press.

Some 1,500 troops and police
officers have occupied nine
shantytowns searching for the
guns stolen from a barracks on
Friday by seven gunmen wear-
ing camouflage gear and ninja
masks. The gunmen overpow-
ered three guards, stole the

On Wednesday, acting on a
tip that the bandits were plan-
ning to take the guns out of Rio,
troops were deployed along the
city's main highways and per-
formed random checks on pass-
ing vehicles, said Col. Fernando
Lemos, spokesman for the East-
ern Military Command. .

On Tuesday night, drug gang
members in the Mangueira
shantytown fired tracer bullets
in the air in an attempt to intim-
idate the troops, who did not
return fire, Lemos said.

On Monday, a youth identi-
fied as 16-year-old Eduardo dos
Santos was killed, apparently
by a stray bullet, as troops

exchanged gunfire with
assailants on the downtown
Providencia shantytown.

So far, the army hasn't arrest-
ed anyone and has not found
any of the weapons. Lemos said
the troops could leave the slums
if they don't recover anything.

The massive sweep to recov-
er a handful of weapons was
unusual. Some speculated that it
was linked to October's nation-
al elections, with the govern-
ment trying to curb crime and
win public support.

Rio is one of the world's most
violent cities, with an anhual
homicide rate of nearly 50 per
100,000 people.

In 2003, the army was sum-
moned to control a crime wave
on the eve of the carnival holi-
day. Troops also have patrolled
the streets during internation-
al summits, including a meet-
ing of Latin American presi-
dents in 2004.

At the Earth Summit in 1992,
15,000 troops were deployed to

Bird flu vaccination in France

A FRENCH vet vaccinates a Padouan chicken against the bird flu with the H5N2 vaccine
Monday, March 6, 2006 in the zoo at Strasbourg in eastern France. A lethal strain of bird flu
has spread to a region on France's Mediterranean coast, with confirmation Sunday that a swan
there died of the H5N1 strain of the virus. Previously, all of France's bird flu cases had been
confined to the southeast Ain region. On Sunday, the Agriculture Ministry announced that a ©
wild swan found dead last week in Saint-Mitre-les-Remparts, in the Bouches- du- Rhone
Camargues region, had the H5N1 strain, according to lab tests.

COW /HOPGEMNTUR,

Opening lead — ace of hearts.

What happens when two players
with a great deal of imagination col-
lide with one another? Something’s
got to give, and it did in this hand

played in a tournament many years:

ago

West opened as dealer with four
hearts. It was certainly a well-timed
pre-emptive bid, since it tumed out
that North-South had the. balance of
strength. North doubled — most
partnerships these days play this as
takeout — and South had far too
good a hand to bid a mere four
spades.

South wanted to get to a slam if
Northhad the right kind of hand, but
he had no way of knowing whether a



heart lead, and he wondered why
East had played the king on the open-
ing trick.

Declarer finally came to the con-
clusion that the only sensible expla-
nation for Ehrlenbach’s play was that
he had started with the J-10-6 of
spades and was trying to develop a
trump trick for himself by panicking
South into ruffing with the king. So
declarer finessed the seven, lost to
West’s jack and went down one.
East’s imagination proved to be more
rewarding than South’s.

We offer no opinion about
declarer’s play, which might have
tumed out right, but you have to
hand it to Ehrlenbach for creating the
opportunity that gave South a chance
to go wrong.

1920’S RURAL COLORADO - When the
regular teacher of the valley’s one-room
schoolhouse must leave, bringing an early
school closing, the children decide to take
over secretly. But there are many problems
to surmount: trouble-making Herbert Bixler,
a suspicious School Board, plus the fact
that the new teacher, Ida Bidson, is not
only one of the students but only fourteen
years old!

INTERNATIONAL NEWS

Report: North Korea
launches missiles near
border with China

mm TOKYO

NORTH KOREA fired two
surface-to-air missiles near its

border with China on Wednes-

day, a Japanese news agency
reported, raising concerns
about the reclusive regime’s
potential to create instability
in the region, according to
Associated Press.

The Kyodo News agency
offered different accounts, say-
ing a security source in China
told it the missiles were fired
by mistake in the direction of
China during a military drill
and landed in North Korean
territory.

A “Western military source,”
however, Said short-range mis-
siles were test-fired from North
Korea’s eastern coast toward
the Sea of Japan, according to
Kyodo.

At least one of the missiles
had landed in the sea about 60
miles northeast of the launch
site, Kyodo said, citing a J: apan-
ese defense official.

The agency said it couldn’t
immediately reconcile the con-
flicting reports, and the exact
time of their launch was not
known.

Dozens abducted afte gunmen storm
private security company in Baghdad

@ BAGHDAD, Iraq

North Korea would be
extremely hesitant to do any-
thing to offend China, its last
major benefactor, and the type

_ of missiles fired wouldn’t pose

much of a threat to anywhere
far beyond the North’s borders.
Despite remaining technically
at war with South Korea, the
sides have embarked on rec-
onciliation efforts since a.2000

summit between their leaders ‘

and many South Koreans don’t
view the North as a threat.
But Pyongyang shocked
Tokyo and other nations when
it test-fired a ballistic missile
over northern Japan in 1998.
It has since test-fired short-
range missiles many times,
including one that was
launched into the Sea of Japan
in May last year. In 2003, it test-
fired short-range land-to-ship
missiles at least three times dur-
ing heightened tensions over
its nuclear weapons program.

Japan’s Defense Ministry’

said it couldn’t confirm the
report of Wednesday’s launch-
es. South Korean officials who
monitor the North also said
they didn’t have any informa-
tion.

Pentagon spokesman Bryan

GUNMEN in camouflage uniforms stormed the offices of a private
security company Wednesday and kidnapped as many as 50 employ-
ees, while U.S. and Iraqi patrols earlier discovered 24 bodies in var-
ious parts of the capital, police said, according to Associated Press.

Unidentified attackers hit the al-Rawafid Security Co. at 4:30 p.m.
and forced the workers into seven vehicles, including several white
SUVs, said Interior Ministry official Maj. Falah al-Mohammedawi.
The company is located in Zayouna, a volatile mixed Sunni-Shiite

- neighborhood in eastern Baghdad.

The company, one of dozens providing protection for businesses
and other clients in the violence-plagued country, is located in Zay-

ouna, a volatile mixed Sunni-Shiite neighborhood in east Baghdad. Its:

employees include many former members of Saddam Hussein’s secu-

rity forces.

The unrelenting violence came amid a break in the political stale-
mate that had threatened the creation of unity government that
Washington hopes can stabilize Iraq so that foreign forces can start

going home.

A Shiite vice president, who had withheld his signature from a pres-
idential decree calling parliament into session, signed an executive
order to end the deadlock and allow lawmakers to convene — perhaps
as early as Sunday, a Shiite factional leader told The Associated

Press.

Whitman said Wednesday that
he was unaware of the North
Korean missile firings.

White House spokesman
Scott McClellan said adminis-
tration officials were still check-
ing into the reports. “I really
don’t have more for you at this
time,” he told reporters on Air
Force One, en route to New
Orleans.

Last year, regional govern-
ments and Washington played
down the significance of the
rocket launch in early May, and
the real concern would come
from longer-range missiles.

In Washington on Tuesday,
the commander of the U.S. mil-
itary in South Korea, Army
Gen. B.B. Bell, said reports
indicated Pyongyang was
“preparing to field a new inter-
mediate-range ballistic missile
which could easily reach Unit-
ed States facilities in Okinawa,
Guam and possibly Alaska,”
according to prepared com-
ments.

However, Bell noted there
had been “very little activity”
by the North Koreans in recent
years on long-range ballistic
missiles. Instead, he said offi-
cials have seen increasing work
on short-range missiles that
could be used on the Korean
Peninsula.

Besides producing a large
number of weapons, Bell said
North Korea also “appears
willing to sell to anyone.”

Analysts say North Korea‘is
developing long-range missiles
capable of reaching Alaska,
Hawaii or perhaps other states
on the West Coast.

Japan and the United States

. have started to develop a joint

ballistic missile defense system,
and Tokyo has said it will
launch two spy satellites by
March 2007 to monitor North
Korea and other trouble spots.

There is no evidence North
Korea has managed to load a
nuclear warhead on a missile,
but the isolated communist
state claims to have produsee
nuclear. weapons.

Last September, Pyongyang
agreed at multilateral talks to
abandon its atomic weapons
program in exchange for aid
and security guarantees. How-
ever, no progress has been
made since then on imple-
menting the accord. |

Insurance carrier wins ruling over BEC plan

@ By NEIL HARTNELL

Tribune Business Editor

he former Global Life

Insurance has won a

Court of Appeal verdict

overturning a previous

ruling that ordered it to
pay a fee to an insurance broker,
with the dispute having its origins in
a bid to win the Bahamas Electricity
Corporation’s (BEC) group health
plan.

Court of Appeal Justices Gan:
patsingh, Osadebay and Longley
overturned a Supreme Court verdict
that ruled Global Life should pay “a

reasonable fee” to Worldwide Insur-

‘ance Agents and Brokers for work
done in helping the life and health
insurer secure the BEC plan.

However, the Court of Appeal
found that no contract had been con-
cluded between Global Life and
Worldwide, and therefore the insur-
ance carrier was no liable to pay the
latter, so “the case should have been
dismissed”.

The judgement recorded that the

dispute had its origins when Global
Life appointed Worldwide its agent
on September 6, 2002, with effect
from September 15.

The Court of Appeal said: “At
about that time, a major public cor-

‘ poration, the Bahamas Electricity

Corporation (BEC), was looking for
a carrier for its group health insur-
ance plan.

“(Global Life], intending to make

a proposal to BEC to get its busi-'
ness, and apparently recognising the.

experience and expertise of [World-
wide’s] principal, wrote to the prin-
cipal on November 6, 2002, propos-
ing to pay [Worldwide] commissions

of between 10-12 per cent based on .

the administrative role each would
play in the administration of the plan,
if the business was secured and
[Worldwide] played an instrumental
role in the process.’

The court said the administrative
role was subject to an agreement
between Global Life and Worldwide.

At this time, .a majority stake in
Global Life was in the process of
being acquired by Colina Insurance

Minister moves to ban egg imports

@ By A FELICITY INGRAHAM
Tribune Business Reporter



MINISTER of Agriculture Leslie Miller has

moved to prohibit the importation of foreign
eggs, and yesterday warned that tariffs will be
imposed upon any Bahamian company failing to
comply.
. His decision comes after visiting Bahamas
Poultry Company, operating as Sunshine Farms,
Grand Bahama, which is owned by Greek
Bahamian entrepreneur, Minas Vardaoulis.

It was first revealed by Tribune Business on

March 3 that Bahamian egg producers were
suffering significant losses as a result of the
increased importation of eggs. Rainbow Farms
and Sunshine Farms in Nassau said they were
losing anywhere from 300 to 500 cases of egg
sales each week since the 2005 final quarter.

While buyers had no problem with eggs being
produced in Nassau, they had alleged that eggs
from Freeport were not up to par, and refused to
purchase them

The article prompted the minister and his —

officials to contact Bahamian farmers, and even-
tually make a trip to Freeport to personally vis-
it the farms.

Yesterday, Mr Miller told Tribune Business
that he and his agriculture officers, along with
representatives from the Department of Envi-
ronmental Health, saw a first-class operation
at Sunshine Farms, Grand Bahama. He felt
many concerns did not have merit.

With the farm having the ability to produce
enough eggs to feed the entire Bahamas and
export throughout the Caribbean, Mr Miller
said he decided his ministry would fully sup-
port Mr Vardaoulis and help his product to

Company. Colina had earlier in 2002
taken Board and management con-
trol at Global Life, although final
regulatory approval and the full
merger consummation were not
achieved until early 2003.

Therefore, during the time of the
dispute Global Life was effectively
part of Colina Insurance Company,
although Colina’s name is not men-
tioned in the judgement.

The Court of Appeal said that
while a submission was made to
BEC, before the contract was con-
cluded, Global Life terminated the

arrangement with Worldwide in July |

2003.

Global Life secured BEC’s group
health plan in April 2004, and on
October 18, 2004, sent a $5,000
cheque to Worldwide as a finder’s
fee for introducing the BEC busi-
ness.

However, Worldwide refused to
accept the payment and began court
proceedings to enforce: the Novem-
ber 6, 2002, agreement.

It subsequently obtained a
Supreme Court judgement that

Companies failing to"
comply will face tariffs.

found it had played’ an “instrumen-
tal” part in helping to win the BEC
business, but was only entitled to a
“reasonable fee”, not the 10-12 per
cent commission. The two sides were
left to work out the sum due.

The Supreme Court also found
that since Global Life had put togeth-
er a team to win the BEC contract,
that team was effectively acting as
the agent, so they were entitled to
the 10-12 per cent commission.
Worldwide was not entitled to it on
its own.

Global Life appealed on the
grounds that “no legally binding
agreement ever came into being”,
while Worldwide sought to obtain a
ruling that it alone was entitled to
the full commission.

In analysing the November 6, 2002,
letter, the Court of Appeal broke it
down into. two parts. The first part
contained “precedents” or conditions
for the contract to kick in, namely
that Global Life submitted a pro-

posal to BEC; Worldwide was.

“fnstrumental” in helping Global Life

Global Life won the business.

The Court of Appeal found that
all these precedents had been ful-
filled, as none was challenged before
it. They then analysed the second
part of the letter, which said Global
Life was “prepared” to pay commis-’
sions of 10-12 per cent “based on
administrative roles to be agreed”.

“It would seem therefore that the
parties intended that once the con-
tract was signed secured, its admin-
istration would be divided between
the parties, as per an agreement to be
reached....,” the Court of Appeal
found.

However, it ruled that there had
been no agreement on the role each

_ party would play to administer the

BEC health plan, and as a result, an
“essential” part of the contract was
not in place. '

“We would therefore hold that no
contract was, concluded between
[Global Life] and [Worldwide],” the
Court of Appeal ruled. “Notwith-

FREEPORT - Grand
Bahama’s high airport costs
must be lowered if the island
is to effectively compete and
attract more airline carriers,
warned the deputy director-
general of tourism, David
Johnson.

Speaking at. the Grand
Bahama Business Outlook
Conference, Mr Johnson said
Grand Bahama International
Airport had one of the high-
est airport turnaround costs

within the region. ‘

He revealed’ that two
major carriers to the island
are faced with a combined
$10 million increase in the
costs of operating flights to
Grand Bahama, driven large-
ly by fuel prices, which is
compounded by the much
higher airport turnaround

_cost charges.

“Our best weapon is to
seek out ways to lower our
costs in the areas we can,
even if it can be linked to vol-
ume,” Mr Johnson said.

“Today there is no incen-
tive at GB International for
an airline to add capacity in

costs, which is often the
incentive in most locations.

He said airlift had been
one of the major challenges
or handicaps for Grand
Bahama’s tourism industry.
‘Mr Johnson said the air- .
port turnaround cost in






























ger compared to Nassau.
He explained that it would |
cost a 50-seat aircraft with
average loads of 75 per cent,
$1,275 more to turnaround a
Dash 8-500. He said a jet with
125-seat capacity, and with a
75 per cent load factor, would
cost $3,187 more per turn, or
well over $1 million more per
year on Grand Bahama if
they operated a daily service,
when compared to Nassau.
Mr Johnson pointed out
that most airline carriers are
attracted to low cost airports.
To illustrate this point, he
compared the performance
of two nearby airports - one
with higher cost and one with
lower costs, namely Miami

Managers must change

t is commonly thought
that technology solu-

and software. However, there
are technology-based business
enhancements that are avail-
able without requiring signifi-
cant upfront expenditure. They
all, though, require a change
in the accepted way of thinking

on conducting business.

The change in mindset
required is to move away from
believing that ‘visibility equals

Jam to 5pm schedule, believing
that employees who are at

decisions because she/he can-
not get all the people required
to make the decision in a room
at one time, instead of organ-
ising a virtual meeting.

The shift required is one
where a manager is only inter-
ested in output and results.
How those results are achieved
is no longer the manager’s con-
cern. Through this change, a

- manager can embrace the

many remote possibilities that
exist.

Remote Network

Management

Remote Network Manage-
ment is referring to the ability
to monitor, manage and sup-
port a network from a remote
location using Internet-based
tools.

For example, at Providence
Technology Group, we moni-
tor what issues are affecting
our clients’ network from our
offices in real time, and we can
respond before issues become
critical — such as a server run-
ning low on memory. Proac-
tive network support and man-
agement minimises downtime,
improves network perfor-
mance and increases value. °

To gain these benefits, a
manager must change their
way of thinking to measuring
their service provider by net-
work performance, not by the
presence on their premises of

technical analysts. It also’

requires a shift in accepting
Internet-based tools as being
secure, given sufficient controls

In place.

Remote Working

There are considerable pro- |

ductivity benefits to be gained







by an employee being able to
work remotely. The frustrated
employee who is late for work
every morning due to traffic
and school runs does not make
the most productive nor com-
mitted employee.

An alternative to this is to
enable employees to work
from home when required.
Research demonstrates that
there are significant employer
benefits in incorporating some
flexibility into employees’
working lives; it adds value to
the bottom line through
increased productivity, reduced
absenteeism and higher staff
retention.

The tools that most compa- _.

nies would‘have in house pro-

vide nearly all the tools.
_required to enable their
“employees to' work ‘from home:

a laptop, cable modem access,
cell phone, instant messaging
and e-mail. The only addition
is to set up a secure Virtual
Private Network (VPN) con-
nection, which in many cases
does not require additional
software.

IT Work

Making

A manager needs to shift
their mindset from productivi-
ty equals time spent in the
office to one where they focus
on output and results. Setting
expected results each month
puts the onus on the employee
to complete their job to the
level expected.

Remote Meetings ©

‘Presence-based’ applica-
tions, one of the technology
success stories in recent times,
are those that provide the
‘presence’ experience within a
virtual team setting. They
remove the need for many
face-to-face meetings, and

therefore significantly reduce .

travel costs. In addition, they

enable businesses to make:

decisions faster by reducing
telephone tag and travel time.

One good example of these
types of solutions is Microsoft
Office’s Live Meeting. This is a
hosted Web conferencing ser-
vice that allows companies to

meet and collaborate in a vir- °
‘tual environment with exter-

nal parties. With Live Meet-



ing, you can use a virtual
whiteboard, change docu-
ments, make presentations and
demonstrate products. Inter-
action with the other partici-”
pants is through writing ques-’
tions, using instant messaging,
making notes on the white-
board as well as by participat-
ing in polls.

Although this solution’
requires upfront spending,
businesses can start recouping
much of that money immedi-'
ately by avoiding travel costs.’
It also requires a change in
mindset to believing that com- '
munication in real time - and at
a moment’s notice - is more
productive than waiting for the
physical presence of others. .

These are just three of the
‘remote possibilities’ that can °
enable a company to derive’
business benefits without
incurring substantial costs.
Technology is about more than "
purchasing new hardware and
software; it is about adopting
new business processes, chang-
ing organisational cultures and
changing the attitudes of exec-
utive management.

wage levels ‘not decent’

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

THE Bahamian minimum
wage “does not provide a
decent standard of living for a
worker and family”, a US State
Department report released
yesterday has concluded, a
finding that will boost trade
union campaigns for it to be
increased.

In the Worker’s Rights sec-
tion on the Bahamas, part of
the US State Department’s

International Human Rights —

Report, the minimum wage for
government employees was
described as being $4.45 per
hour, having been established
in 2000.

For private sector workers,
the report said the minimum
wage was $4 per hour, having
been established in 2002. While
some are likely to point to the
hypocrisy surrounding the US

“Although the law prohibits forced or compulsory

document, given the well-doc-
umented human rights abuses
at Guantanamo Bay and at
Iraq’s Abu Ghraib prison, the
State Department does iden-
tify gaps in Bahamian labour
law.

It points out that Bahamian
law “does not provide a right
for workers to remove them-
selves from dangerous work
situations without jeopardy to
continued employment”.

The report added that while
the Ministry of Labour and
Immigration had a team of on-
site inspectors who conducted
visits to enforce workplace
health and safety regulations,
plus investigate employee con-

— US State Department report



cerns and complaints, these
inspections “occurred infre-
quently” in 2005.

The US State Department
said: “Although the law pro-
hibits forced or compulsory
labour, including by children,
there were reports that such
practices had occurred.

“Although the law prohibits
the employment of children
under 14 for industrial work
or work during school hours,

some children worked part-
time in light industry and ser-
vice jobs.”

The report said that almost
25 per cent of the workforce,
and 80 per cent of workers in
the hotel industry, were mem-
bers of trade unions. However,
it said some Bahamian
employers felt the Industrial
Tribunal was “biased unfairly
in favour of employees”.

The US State Department
also.recorded complaints from
human rights advocates, who
had alleged that the Grand
Bahama Port Authority had
allowed Hutchison Whampoa
to discourage trade-union for-
mation.

there were dangerous potholes
throughout the entire length
of the runway. There were
also numerous ridges, and the
tarmac was covered with pro-
jectiles that could be dangerous
to propellors and turbine jet
engines, the réport said.

The officials also noticed
“large areas of standing water
several inches deep" on the
runway. The airport also suf-
fered from a sunken area,
where a trench was dug for
electrical cables, and which was
later patched with tar.
