Rumsfeld calls.

leakage

for withdrawal
of helicopters

& By RUPERT MISSICK Jr
Chief Reporter

_ US DEFENCE Secretary
Donald Rumsfeld has asked for
the complete withdrawal of US
army helicopter support from
the US/Bahamas joint anti-drug
smuggling operation.
According to Associated
Press reports, in a letter to US
Attorney General Alberto
Gonzales, Mr. Rumsfeld
requested that the helicopters
be removed by-next year Octo-
ber in light of the fact that the
US military’s resources are
being stretched thin by ongo-

ing conflicts in Iraq and.

Afghanistan.
-*.: Operation Bahamas Turks
and Caicos (OPBAT) currently

uses seven Army Blackhawk -

helicopters.
‘““OPBAT now competes with

resources necessary forthe war '
on terrorism and other activi- ©

ties in support of our nation’s
defence, with potential adverse
effects on the military pre-
paredness of the United States,”
Mr Rumsfeld said in his letter.

However, thus far, no formal
decision has been made to ter-
minate army support at this point.

Dr Brent Hardt, Deputy
Chief. of Missions at the US
Embassy in the Bahamas told
The Tribune yesterday that Mr
‘Rumsfeld’s request was just one
aspect of several ongoing.inter-
nal deliberations about who is
to supply the main support for
the OPBAT mission.

“Fven should a decision like
that be made (to remove the

helicopters), the expectation is
that the mission would be
-assigned to some capable US
agency to take on that mission,”
Dr Hardt said. :
~ . OPBAT, he said, will contin-
ue regardless and will have a
strong air presence.

“The ambassador: (John
Rood) is fully committed to this.
In fact he is going to. Washing-
ton later this month to reinforce
the importance of OPBAT,” Dr
Hardt said.

He pointed out that in addi-
tion to officers of the Royal
Bahamas Police and Defence
Force, OPBAT is staffed by
representatives of many US
government agencies — from the
US Coast Guard to US Cus-
toms ~ but based on priorities
elsewhere in the world, officials
are reassessing how. US. Army
assets are to be deployed.

“In the past couple of years
‘the Army has, given their heavy
involvement in Afghanistan and
Iraq, indicated that they would
wish another agency to take
over their part in this mission
and that has been an ongoing
debate and so far they have
continued to do that mission,”
Dr Hardt said.

- While he admitted that con-
tinuing to have Army helicopter
support is vital, support for
OPBAT remains firm.

“Obviously the army is very
capable and has.a tremendous

‘record of reliability and capa-
bility so it would be our prefer-
ence that the army continue to

Tribune Staff Reporter

NORTH Andros — Local
contractors have threatened to
block the construction of a 36-
mile stretch of main road in
North Andros if it is undertak-
en by a New Providence firm.

Claiming that they have been
overlooked, the contractors yes-
terday affirmed that the neces-
sary equipment and expertise
for the job is present on the
island. . eee ae ale

The contract, which is report-
edly worth $6 million, seems to
be the subject of some confu-
sion — as Andros sources insist

‘ that it has been awarded to New
Providence contractor Junior
Bethel, but Minister of Works
Bradley Roberts said the job
has not even gone to tender yet.

When The Tribune spoke
with Mr Bethel about the mat-
ter yesterday afternoon, he said
the Androsians. “know. more
than I do” about the status of
the contract.

Asked to respond’ to the
claim that local firms should be
awarded the contract, Mr
Bethel said: “They can’t han-
dle it.”

He claimed that another min-
istry awarded a contract to a
local firm on Andros several
weeks ago, but the project has
yet to get started.

“You want what will work for’
your money,” Mr Bethel said.

Tribune. Staff Reporter

NORTH Andros — One of
the most hotly contested seats
in the next general election
could be the constituency of
North Andros, The Tribune has
learned.

Its current representative,
Minister of Foreign Investment
Vinceitt. éet, continues to con-
trol sdbstantial support among
his iOrerardent PLP con-
stitueats., ~ ‘

Mr-Péet said yesterday that
he would: put his four-year
record in:North Andros up
against ithe previous 20 years
of représentation — and dared
any challenger to try to beat
him.) +i)

However, talking with The
Tribune,yesterday, some of his
die-hard PLP supporters in the
2002 election said Andros has
not moved forward to where
they think it should be. They
accused ‘Minister Peet of being
“out ‘of: touch” with his con-
stituents.

And according to Western
Air owner. Shandrice Wood-
side-Rolle, ‘who is seeking the
FNM(\candidacy for the area, it
is be¢ause of Mr Peet’s “lack
of inteyest” in Androsians that
she de¢ided to run.

onteste

“Even though this is my first
attempt in politics I feel that
North Androsians are craving
something different. That is
something that I am bringing
to the table by living here in
the constituency, and in addi-
tion to that I am a business
owner in this constituency.

“I am contributing to the
economy by introducing vari-
ous businesses, including West-
ern Air. So my contributions
to this constituency have
already been proven, and so I
am sure that once they can give
me a chance as their MP, they

can feel comfortable in know-. .

ing that I would be an even bet-
ter contributor to this con-
stituency,” she said.

Aside from Western Air, Mrs
Woodside-Rolle and her hus-
band Rex have many projects
currently underway, such as a
commercial development not
far from the airlines’ main hub,
which currently holds seven
10,000 square-foot commercial
buildings and is planned to
include a 44-room hotel. |

Mrs Woodside-Rolle said
that other than Western Air,
there is little investment in
North Andros.

“TI am trying to be as objec-

tive as I possibly can. And that

is One of the main reasons that

propelled me into politics —
because it seemed as if noth-
ing was happening in North
Andros. We tried our best to
make things better for North
Andros by putting our head-
quarters here. We feel that
maybe by putting our business
here then maybe we could
encourage other Androsians
who are living abroad to come
and invest here, but so far that
has not happened.”

However, when contacted

yesterday afternoon, Mr Peet
said he is currently considering
a number of private proposals
for resorts in the constituency —
a task he is ideally placed to
handle as minister of invest-
ments.

Mr Peet said his record
speaks for itself.

“I brought to North Andros
more than 25 contracts in four
years — more than the last 15
years combined. The previous *
government only brought about

five contracts,” he said.

The minister said he has
made education his top priority,
and that every settlement in
North Andros with a school has
been improved during his
tenure. Mr Peet pointed to

‘major upgrades at the Mastic
Point Primary School and the
construction of a pre-school in
this settlement; and upgrades
to the primary school in

Nicholls Town, where a new |

pre-school is almost complete.
The minister added that four

contracts have been awarded ©

for,Réd Bays, which include

those for a primary school and - |

a pre-school; and that there
have been five contracts award-
ed for the North Andros High
School — including those for a
cafeteria housing eight vendors,
a tuck shop, anda three-class-
room block.

He added that an additional
two contracts for this school
are to be awarded in the com-
ing weeks — one for a techni-
cal workshop building and

‘another for a four-classroom
block.

In addition to similar educa-
tional projects in Lowe Sound,
Mr Peet foreshadowed a con-

tract for a new sea wall to pro-’
tect that community from hur- -

ricane damage.

Andros may be ‘one of most hotly
d seats’ in next general election

Officials optimistic about tourism as hurricane season Bening”

a By ROYANNE FORBES-
DARVILLE

WITH meteorological offi-

cials predicting an active hurri-.

cane $eason this year, Minister
of Tourism Obie Wilchcombe
said heii is hoping room sales will
remail steady.

As ‘hoteliers in the oupital
report soaring room sales, Mr
Wilchcombe told The Tribune
that while he is concerned, he
remains confident that the
country.is. ‘prepared for any

The government has allocat-
‘ed an estimated $8 million for
the National Emergency Man-
agement: Agency in its
2006/2007 budget.

This as 17 named storms are
predicted to:form —.nine of
which are expected to become
hurricanes and five to strength-
en to category three or higher.

Mr Wilchcombe explained
that a comprehensive disaster
preparedness plan has been
designed for Grand Bahama,
which lost 1,000 of its 4,000-
room inventory following hur-

ricanes Frances and Jeanne in
2004.

He said the government is
working arduously to ensure
that Grand Bahama’s economy
is not compromised again.

“We are putting in place a
very dynamic marketing pro-
motional programme that will
give Grand Bahama that brand
name and we are going to brand
it to the point that Grand
Bahama would mean something
in the market place.”

So far for the year, more than
two million tourists have visited

presented by the

the Bahamas and the number is
expected to exceed the total for
2005, despite the impending
weather, Mr Wilchcombe said.

A total of 5,050,795 persons
visited the Bahamas in 2005 — a
one per cent increase over 2004.

Tourism officials say the bulk
of the growth in 2005 was not
unexpected, as they -had to work
very hard to maintain the coun-
try’s presence in the interna-

_ tional market.

They said that after two major
hurricanes last year, air arrivals
to New Providence. were up —
whereas. air arrivals were down
following storms in 2004.

Meanwhile, a few hoteliers
on New Providence and Par-
adise Island are reporting
exceédingly higher room sales
this year compared to the same
period in 2005.

Robert Sands, vice president
of administration and external
affairs for Cable Beach Resorts,
said bookings are up by more

than 10 per cent.

“T can tell you that first week
of (this month) we are way
ahead of last year in terms of
business,” he said. “By at least
15 per cent ahead of last year
for the first week of June.

“What in fact happens is if a

hurricane forms and it begins -

to head in the direction of the
Bahamas then that has an
impact on bookings before and
perhaps after the passing of the
particular hurricane, for the
remainder of the season,” Mr
Sands explained.

“With the approach of the
hurricane season, business does
not usually go very poor,” he
said. “It is impacted directly by
the path the storm in traveling
in — and that has been a tradi-
tional experience.”

In the event a hurricane does
make landfall, Mr Sands said
the resort has an extensive con-

manager of the British Colonial
Hilton said that his resort has
not seen any noticeable downfall
in room sales that can be attrib-
uted to the fear of hurricanes.

He explained that occupan-
cy is steady at 90 per cent, but
that the hardest time for a hur-
ricane to hit is in September — a
traditionally slow month.

“We have a hurricane plan
and we have begun to execute it
by ordering a large bulk of sup-
plies and we are ready to put it
in action.”

In the interim, however;.Mr ~

Wilchcombe said that there'is
comfort in knowing that, the
Bahamas’ tourism ns is
resilient.

“One of the things that we
can say is that the tourism
industry . . . rebounds quite eas-
ily, and inspite of all.the diffi-
culties we have been able to
enjoy a good number of arrivals
and yield from our invest-
ments.”

SCHOOLS were closed and
homes were deluged Tuesday
after floodwaters from a swollen

river struck dozens of villages |

in Suriname just. weeks after
severe flooding left 22,000 peo-
ple homeless, officials said,
according to Associated Press.
The Suriname River rose
above its banks on Monday
after three days of heavy rains,

endangering villages that were’

battered by last month’s floods,
said Jerry Slijngaard, who heads
the Disaster Coordination Cen-
ter in the South American

The water level along a
stretch of the river where peo-
ple from the Saamakka Maroon
tribe live in thatched-hut vil-
lages.had risen nearly 3 meters
(10 feet) since Monday, Slijn-
gaard said.

Two weeks ago officials said
river levels in the former Dutch
colony had dropped to normal
levels after torrential rains and
flooding left up to 22,000 home-
less in the country’s lowlands.

Slijngaard said flooding in
recent days has hampered the
distribution of aid to last mon-
th’s flood victims because air-
fields were submerged.

Perry Christie calls Ingraham’s
comments on Cuba ‘shameful’

@ By KARINHERIG) .
Tribune Staff Reporter

PRIME Minister Perry
Christie described Hubert
Ingraham’s behaviour regard-
ing the election of Cuba to the
Human
Rights Council as “shameful.”

Continuing with this year’s
budget debate, the prime min-
ister yesterday took the oppor-
tunity to speak out against

statement’s made by Mr Ingra-

ham after it was disclosed that
the Bahamas had voted in

favour of Cuba becoming'a’
member of the new human’

rights body. ;
Mr Ingraham last month
blasted the government’s deci-
sion to vote for Cuba — a coun-
try, he said, which in the view
of the FNM does not meet the
necessary standards in terms
of human rights practices.
The opposition leader par-

ticularly criticised the fact that _

the government did not imme-

an people the nature of its vote
at the UN.

He also said that while his
party wants to maintain good
relations with Cuba, it would
never risk the Bahamas’ “
critical” relationship with the
United States.

Mr Christie yesterday said
that it is his obligation and that
of his colleagues to govern the
country “in the way we deem
to be in the best interest of our
country.” » ;

“We don’t flip flop and take:
decisions that we believe are .
politically popular and popular -
with the Americans,” he said: - '

He emphasised that the US

was always very much of aware

of the Bahamas’ stance on
Cuba.

The prime minister said that
he discussed the country’s posi-
tion at several meetings with
US government representa-

‘tives, including the meeting

with Secretary of State Con-
doleezza Rice earlier this year.

on the behalf of the Bahamian
people I spoke honestly and
sincerely about our. relation-
ship such as it was with Cuba.

“There is doubt that my

frankness was appreciated on .

each of those occasions,” he
said. ,

Mr Christie said that there is
no question whatsoever
regarding the good relation-
ship between the US and the
Bahamas. ;

He pointed out that thou-
sands of Bahamians live in the
States, with many even serv-
ing in the US armed forces.

He added that he has always
spoken openly to US officials
about the fact that many
Bahamians benefit from health
care and education services
offered by Cuba. ;

“There is no secret about
what I do. I spoke before pub-
lic officials to the leaders of
the US government.

Shock announcement over OPBAT

IT WAS announced yesterday that US
Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld wants
to.end the Army’s participation in Operation
QPBAT, which not only protects the shores of

the Bahamas from smugglers of drugs and -

humans, but reduces the drug supply into
Florida.

The programme, which was started in 1982
and includes the US, Bahamas and Turks
Island, was supported by seven of the Army’s
Blackhawk helicopters and, of course, the
Army’s crew that goes with them. Mr Runis-
feld says they are needed for more important
duties elsewhere — particularly in the war
against terrorism. He has urged the US gov-
ernment to find another agency to step in and
fill the void.

It is only natural that the US Embassy in
Nassau would like to maintain OPBAT’s high
level of efficiency.

“Obviously the army is very capable and
has a tremendous record of reliability and
capability so it would be our preference that
the army continue to do that mission,” Dr
Brent Hardt, Deputy Chief of Mission at the
US Embassy in the Bahamas, told The Tri-
bune. “At this point, our support for OPBAT
is firm and strong and we don’t anticipate a cut
back in OPBAT’s capability to ensure the
effectiveness of the mission here.”

Dr Hardt also said that US Ambassador
John Rood is fully committed to OPBAT. “In
fact,” said Dr Hardt, “he is going to Wash-
ington later this month to reinforce the impor-
tance of OPBAT.”

Of course, the Bahamas’ vote on May 9
for Cuba to be a member of the UN Human
Rights Council, obviously does not sit well
with the United States. As Ambassador Rood

said in a letter to the press on May 22: “If the
United Nations is to be relevant and effec-
tive in promoting universal human rights, its
member nations must have the courage to
promote their own values, as reflected in the
Universal Declaration of Human Rights.”

The Ambassador said he knew that the
“people of the Bahamas hold these rights
dear, just as we in the United States do.” If this
is true, then when one reads the Universal
Declaration of Human Rights and relates it to
Cuba’s track record on human rights, it is
obvious that the Bahamas’ courage failed

-when it came time to promote its own values
on May 9.

It is also understood that the US was miffed
by Foreign Affairs Mitchell’s statement to the
House of Assembly on May 17 when, in
explaining why this country supported Cuba,
he said:

“No other country, unsolicited, has offered
the level of assistance to this country (the
Bahamas), assistance that is not of direct ben-
efit to the country offering the assistance.”
Mr Mitchell was speaking of Cuba.

This was a slap in the face to the United
States, a country that has so faithfully sup-
ported, encouraged and promoted the interests
of the Bahamas for so many years. Not only are
American tax dollars used to carry out the
many programmes organised for the benefit of
Bahamians, but also the generosity,of private
organisations to this country has no parallel.

And so these acts and words are the mon-
keys that the Ambassador will have on his
back when he goes to bat for the OPBAT
mission in Washington. What our government
ministers have said and done can only make
his efforts more difficult.

The criticism of Raynard Rigby

PLP Chairman Raynard Rigby never ceas-
es to amuse us.

In criticising Opposition Leader Hubert
Ingraham for condemning government’s deci-
sion to lift the moratorium on public service
hiring by taking 1,200 out-of-job Bahamians
on the already overburdened public payroll
when teachers are crying for parity in pay
with other professionals, Mr Rigby said: .

“We are not wasting money, we are
employing 1,200 people who don’t have a job,
who are looking for a job and who have the
basic skills we need in the public service.”

Mr Rigby attended the PLP’s mini-con-
vention when Public Service Minister Fred
Mitchell stated government’s intention to cre-
ate these jobs within the next year. He heard
what Mr Mitchell said. He also had the oppor-
tunity to read Mr Mitchell’s statement in The
Tribune, yet he would make a public state-
ment claiming that the recruits will in fact
have the “basic skills”. Does Mr Rigby know
something more than Mr Mitchell about these
potential recruits? Now this is what Mr
Mitchell told PLP delegates from a public plat-

form: “The idea will be that those people who
do not have the basic qualifications, which is
the minimum of five BJCs, will be able to
come onto the service, receive training with an
agreement to upgrade their training, so that
they can be promoted in the service and not
use the lack of qualifications against them.”

Mr Rigby said it would not be accurate to
say that government was “wasting money” to
employ them “knowing obviously why they
are employing these persons, what role these
persons will play in the public service, and
being satisfied of the need for those people to
come into employment at this time.”

Well, as their need for employment is not
so obvious to the public, and Mr Rigby and
Mz Mitchell are at odds as to the calibre of
employees they are recruiting, maybe Mr Rig-
by would enlighten us to what he calls the
“obvious.”

The only reason we guess they are needed
“at this time” is that an election is on the hori-
zon, and although they might not have five
BJC’s, they are obviously smart enough to mark
their X in the correct box on election day.

THE TRIBUNE .

Reviewing
legal issues

EDITOR, The Tribune

I read with interest Larry
Smith’s Tough Call article of
May 24, 2006, reviewing some
of the issues arising out of the
11 Financial Laws introduced
in December, 2000.

It also touches on the status
of the Constitutional Action

filed in December 2001 by Mau-

rice Glinton and myself in
response to those issues. The
Bahamas Bar Association inter-
venes in that law suit.
Congratulations to Mr. Smith
who once again presented
opposing view points on an
important subject. There was
enough material there to gen-
erate some questions and public
concerns.
- One reservation however, is
that Tough Call’s readers may
have been left with the impres-

sion that the only substantive .

issue, is lawyer-client privilege:
a concern of only lawyers’and
their clients.

This is not the case. At the
risk of over-simplifying, I will
attempt to summarize some
issues. the Plaintiffs allege arise
out of the challenged package
of legislation.

The Constitutional case is
about this country. As citizens
we allege that we have a right to
expect our government of the
day, whoever it may be, to act in
accordance with the Constitu-
tion.

The Constitutional case. asks
the Court to determine whether
the government has an obliga-
tion to defend the sovereignty
of this jurisdiction, to pass laws
consistent with the Constitu-
tion, and in the interest of the
people of the Bahamas, in the
sense that was the actuating
interest for their passage.

It asks the Court to deter-
mine, whether the Constitution
protects the citizens’ funda-
mental rights as we understand

them, or-whether those rights,

cede to the executive’s exercise
of power as set out in the Finan-
cial Laws.

1. Do the laws violate the fun-
damental rights provisions of
the Constitution such as:

e The presumption of inno-
cence

e The right of freedom from
unwarranted search

¢ The right to confidentiality
regarding private communica-
tions

° The right not to be unjustly
deprived of property?

2. Do the Financial Laws
deprive a client of the protec-
tion of lawyer-client privilege?

3. Should attorneys be
required by the Financial Laws
to report on their clients with
or without the consent of the
client? ,

4. Do the Financial Laws put

lawyers) as officers of the
Supreme Court, in a position of
conflict, between the duty and
obligations which the laws cre-
ate for them, and the client’s
right to confidentiality of his
information?

5. The Hawkesbill Creek
Agreement has not been
amended or repealed. Do the
Financial Laws violate the rights
of the Ist Plaintiff (and other
attorneys licenced by the Port
Authority of Grand Bahama)
as Licencee under the Hawks-
bill Creek Agreement?

6. Do the provisions of the
Financial Laws circumvent the
powers of the Public Service
Commission?

7. Can the Financial Intelli-
gence Unit (FIU) defeat a per-
son’s right to trial by an inde-
pendent and impartial court?

8. Is the FIU given powers
and immunities reserved for the
Supreme Court and its judges
alone and therefore ultra vires
the Constitution?

9. Is the FIU ultra vires the.

Constitution because it purports
to usurp Parliament’s legisla-
tive function of determining
what the law should be?

10. Does the Central Bank of
the Bahamas Act (CBBA)
attempt to deny the fundamen-
tal right of a person to the pre-
sumption of innocence until
proven guilty by an impartial
court?

11. Does the CBBA defeat a
person’s right to protection
against the arbitrary and com-
pulsory deprivation of property
without due process of law?

12. Is the Banks and Trust
Companies Regulation Act
(BTCRA) ultra vires when it
purports to give the Governor
of the Central Bank, and a
Magistrate, powers to exercise a
discretion reserved for judges
in the higher judiciary, which
affect fundamental rights?

13. Does the BTCRA cir-
cumvent the constitutional sep-
aration of powers by virtue of
the judicial power purported to
be vested in the Governor of
the Central Bank?.

14. Do the Financial Laws by
designating the Plaintiffs (and
other lawyers) as “Financial
Institutions” purport to regu-
late and redefine the Plaintiffs’
duties and functions as Officers
of the Court , and Counsel and
Attorneys of the Supreme
Court?

15. Do the Financial Laws
thereby defeat the role of the
Plaintiffs as officers of the court
and thereby also defeat the con-
stitutional separation of pow-
ers?

Can the reasons for which the
legislation was passed, justify
the alleged erosion or abroga-
tion of fundamental rights set
out in the Financial Laws?

The Financial Laws have
been, and will be supplemented
by “guidelines” passed on to
“Financial Institutions” through
the Compliance Commission of
The Bahamas, from the FATF,
the financial arm of the OECD.
The OECD is an overseas orga-
nization representing the devel-
oped countries. The guidelines

are not laws or regulations.
passed by our Parliament, but in’
practice set standards and pro-
cedures by which “compliance”
is to be measured. These can
be a moving goal-post. The
Bahamas Compliance Commis-,;
sion reports to the FATF and/or
the Caribbean FATF. +3

This situation is alluded to in;
the interview of Mr. James
Smith, Minister of State for
Finance, in The Tribune of May::
30, 2006. Minister Smith;
referred to “regulatory stan-
dards ..... constantly evolving.”
Minister Smith further com,
mented on the OECD’s latest
report on “compliance” issues,
as follows: “It’s been an’arguz
ment that has been made in the
Bahamas for some time, that
we have gone ‘way beyond’ the
OECD countries, which is why
it is so important to insist on a
level playing field.”

If our Government is using
that argument against the
OECD, why is it vigorously
defending this Constitutional
Action, which likewise seeks to
preserve for our citizens, and.
persons in this jurisdiction, the
level playing field on funda-
mental human rights? And at
an enormous cost, first to the
taxpayers of this country, and
also the Plaintiffs and the few
citizens who have provided sups:
port. te

Elsewhere in the Common-
wealth, similar financial. laws
have been challenged: laws
which likewise purported to co-'
opt lawyers to aid in enforcing’
the laws through their legal
practices. Those challenges have
been successful, and the laws;
declared unconstitutional wher¢!
they violated fundamental}:
human rights. Are. we in thi)
part of the Commonwealths
somehow less human, and
deserving of less rights? ey

The Constitution grants citi”
zens, and others in the
Bahamas, the right to.a pre;
sumption of innocence, a fair
trial by an independent court,
protection of person and prop;
erty from unwarranted searche§
and seizures, and a right to give
and receive information relat;
ing to his private affairs in cont
fidence. 1

We are alleging that the
financial laws would deny thos
constitutional rights in certain
instances. '

The Constitution sets out i
system of checks and balances
against the executive’s misust
of power. Do the Financial
Laws represent a misuse off
power, and will the Constitu-
tion afford protection? if

The over-riding question,
however is whether we are able
and willing to preserve a way

nicqieig. ape,
of life: whether we have suffi-
cient moral constitution to pré-
serve our legal Constitution. »

Or whether we are just simple
occupants of the Islands in
Stream ( but less and less own-
ers of the land we occupy),
flowing to the dictates of the
strongest current of the day, in
the naive belief that the quality
of life we have until now
enjoyed, will somehow be pre-
served for us, without struggle
or sacrifice on our part. i

Minister
speaks at
opening

IT is imperative that every cit-
izen feel the import of tourism,
Minister of Tourism Obie Wilch-
combe stressed at the opening of
the Small Island Developing
States (SIDS) conference.

He told conference delegates
that each of the small island
developing countries represent-
ed must commission an audit of
the capacity of their resources to
create linkages that could place
wealth in the hands of people.

“Billions of dollars of invest-
ments have given us the impetus
for economic growth. Our chal-
lenge now is to match this growth
with economic 'and social devel-
opment of people.

“Both are imperatives if we are
to complete this march of social
and economic independence,” he
said.

Walkine on
environment

Director General of Tourism
Vernice Walkine stressed the
importance of ensuring that the
environment is maintained in
“good working order.”

In an interview with The Tri-
bune, Ms Walkine said there is a
need to ensure that natural
resources such as the beaches and
the ocean “are able to outlive us”.

“In the absence of other major
industries, for a lot of these
Caribbean countries, we have to
depend on our natural environ-
ment in order to allow tourism to
prosper and to grow.

“If an ocean gets destroyed,
how do you replace it? It
becomes a fundamental question
of how seriously do we take our
responsibility to ensure that the
environment we are blessed with
today is here tomorrow - so that
the next generation has the
opportunity to get the same ben-
efit from it,” Ms Walkine said.

ECONOMIC leaks in small island states need
to be reduced by finding linkages with other
industries in the local economy, said Secretary
General of the World Tourism Organisation
Francesco Frangialli.

Yesterday, Mr Frangialli addressed delegates
during the opening ceremony of the Small Island
Developing States (SIDS) conference, which is
being held in the capital under the theme: "Max-
imising economic benefits and sustaining tourism
in development."

One of the conference’s objectives is to identify
and discuss economic, environmental, social and
other relevant factors that support economic
resilience-building in the tourism sector of small
island nations. ‘

Mr Frangialli told delegates on Wednesday
that economic leakages are common in small
island states.

He identified “the need to import a relatively
high proportion of the inputs required by hotels,
transport, and other tourism companies, along
with repatriation of benefits of foreign tourism
companies operating in SIDS, management fees
of foreign hotel operators, and employment of
expatriate staff” as among the main generators of
leakages.

"These need to be reduced through finding
linkages with other industries in the local econ-
omy whenever possible, but also by imagining
and putting in place innovative development and
management models in the tourism sector itself,”
added Mr Frangialli.

In spite of several crises, he pointed out that
international tourist arrivals worldwide beat all
expectations last year, exceeding 800 million.

In 2005, the tourism industry faced such crises
as terrorism, natural disasters, increases in oil
prices and health scares.

However, Mr Frangialli pointed out that these

tests showed that the industry has resilience and’

a capacity to recover.

Minister of Tourism Obie Wilchcombe, in the
keynote address, asked the question: “What is the
goal” of tourism?

He went on to explain that the ultimate goal is
to enrich the lives of the country's citizens.

“One must think beyond numbers and adopt
the triple bottom line approach of examining:
economic, socio-cultural, and environmental
aspects,” Mr Wilchcombe said.

"Gone are the days when we can pat ourselves
on the back when we reach five million visitors -
because unless the five million contribute to. the
quality of our people, it is all for naught," he
said.

‘Over the next three days, delegates will discuss
issues pertaining to the tourism industry, includ-
ing:

e Crime and unrest: a threat to tourism
resilience

e The role of private sector associations in
tourism resilience building ’

e The role of local and regional airlines in
building tourism resilience.

PM mentions proposed plan to alleviate
the present dilemma in Grand Bahama

PRIME Minister Christie in

the house yesterday mentioned

the government’s proposed
plan to alleviate Grand
Bahama’s present economic
dilemma, which he said
totalled more than $4 billion
dollars.

_ Minister of Tourism Obie
Wilchcombe confirmed Mr
Christie’s plans in an interview
yesterday.

He said that the government.
is focused on finding new oper- :

ators for the soon-to-close Isle
of Capri and the Closed Royal
Oasis Resort. He also said a
part of the government's plan
is to ‘Brand’ Grand Bahama
to make it a viable destination.

“The truth is we have com-
pleted our negotiations with
new owners of the Royal Oasis
and we are now completing

negotiations with new opera-
tors of the casino for the Isle of
Capri in Lucaya and that will
soon be announced,” said Mr
Wilchcombe.

“We have an agreement in

principle and now they'll begin
to work toward trying to
finalise an agreement that
allows us to move forward with
a new operator for the casino
in Freeport.”

Only one other four-year

Terminal, Polymer’s Interna-

These investments were good
and strategic additions to the
economic plant of The
Bahamas. Their track record of
success is one of the single
greatest reasons that other
international investors were and
still are motivated to seek more
fortunes in our nation. Many of
these investors were left in the
pipeline at the last change of
government.

Investors remain motivated
by what was established

making difficult and unpopular
decisions.
That is what happened

‘between 1992 and 2002 when

the Ingraham administration
made many difficult and unpop-
ular decisions. Approving Sol
Kerzner, the South African bil-
lionaire, to invest in the Atlantis
project was a controversial deci-
sion at the time.

One would not know from
the glowing praises heaped on
Sol Kerzner by the present
administration that, while in
opposition, it treated the Kerzn-
er investment with disdain and
even threatened to undo it.

Privatising the government
hotels was a controversial deci-
sion. The then government was
accused of giving those proper-
ties away. Closing the govern-
ment-owned Lucayan Beach
Hotel in Freeport to make way
for a new hotel was an unpopu-
lar decision.

Grand Bahama was already
hurting economically and clos-
ing down the Lucayan Beach,
as run down and profitless as it
was, was thought by many,





356-6967, 356-6964 %:

FNMs and PLPs alike, to be
economic suicide for the island.
Approving Capo for the â„¢
Bimini Bay project was a con-
troversial decision. Approving a
casino licence for Emerald Bay
in Exuma was controversial.
Repealing the Immovable Prop-
erty Act was controversial.
Approving more investment
dollars than the size of the
whole economy of The
Bahamas was controversial with
the then opposition chanting
that Ingraham and them were
“selling the country out”.
Great controversy surround-

.ed the many changes to the reg-

ulatory regime of the financial
services sector of The Bahamas,
said by the opposition to be a
rush to judgment, unconstitu-
tional and pandering to foreign
powers.

Fast forward these contro- |
versial decisions today and they :
are the bedrock of what is
enabling The Bahamas to
thrive in a better performing *
global economy. These deci-
sions have generated thousands
upon thousands of jobs, multi-
ple of. millions of dollars in
local business profits and a sure
footing for the Bahamian econ- ;
omy for years and years to
come.

Had they not been made, our
nation, both economically and \-
socially, would be in terrible
shape. Even the controversial
changes to the financial services
sector are now regarded as the
reason The Bahamas is a “well-
regulated, blue chip” offshore

‘ centre.

Sometimes, leadership has
nothing to lean on but the glory
of its vision, the wisdom of its
insight and the conviction of its
values. This is what happened
between 1992 and 2002 and The
Bahamas continues to reap
great rewards from the leader-
ship of that period and is likely
to do so for decades to come.

THOUGHT FOR THE
WEEK

\ / ery often leadership
must be content with

knowing how many people ben-
efit from its decision as opposed
to how many will like it.

A GOVERNMENT:
APPOINTED panel said
Tuesday that Jamaica’s main
supplier of cement was at
fault for distributing roughly
550'tons (500 metric tons) of
sub-standard product earli-

er this year, according to.

Associated Press.
The 15-member team’s
report said that.a lack of
internal quality control by
management at Caribbean
Cement:Company Limited

led to the distribution of the ©

faulty cement, which it said
was a major breach of
Jamaica’s Standards Act.
The panel also called for a
comprehensive review at the
Bureau of Standards of
Jamaica which certified the
inferior cement. It said the
government bureau did not
have a.suitable process or

appropriate equipment to

assess the product.

The report was released
some two months after being
appointed by industry and
commerce minister Phillip
Paulwell to investigate pro-
duction . standards © at
Caribbean Cement ‘Compa:
ny Limited.

Several major construc-
tion projects have been
delayed by the shortage,
which began in February
when the company recalled
550 ‘tons (500 metric tons)
of cement.

Bahamas Police Force, there
have been about 1,500 traffic
accidents in New Providence

. for the year.

That figure, the official said,
only includes accidents that the
traffic department has dealt

_with personally, and although

it-does represent the majority
of traffic accidents, there are
still some. cases that do not
make it as far as the depart-
ment.

Local police stations some-
times record traffic accidents
that occur in their areas, and
most times. in those cases, the
traffic division does not record
these accidents.

Two days ago, the double
traffic fatality which, took the
lives of two Long Island sisters,
Santura and Brigetta Adder-
ley, brought the total traffic
accident death toll up to 13 for
the year, prompting traffic offi-
cials to caution: motorists to be
extra careful during the rainy
period.

One irate driver complained

of the apparent nonchalance
and total disregard for safety
some drivers demonstrate on
the road, saying: “These peo-
ple are getting more and more
reckless.”

“They are not only poten-

tially putting their lives in dan-
ger but also the persons driving
next to them,” the motorist said.

he said. ;

The: US: does, not ignore the
fact that OPBAT has been very
successful in stopping and pre-
venting the flow of drugs
through the Bahamas and into
Florida.

Since 2000, the programme
has resulted in seizure of more
than 25 tons of cocaine, 82 tons
of marijuana and the arrests of
786 people, according to DEA
statistics from April.

However, these numbers are
not as impressive as those dur-
ing the drug boom days of the
1980s when up to 90-per cent
of the cocaine smuggled into
the US from Latin America
came into Florida through the

Bahamas and Caribbean. ui

This fact has led some US law’
makers to call for cuts in

THE TRIBUNE

Bah

THE Swiss Federal Prosecu-
tor’s Office is facing a lawsuit
after failing to prove allegations
that the founder of a now-
defunct Muslim firm was send-
ing al-Qaeda money to the
Bahamas through Malta and
Switzerland.

According to the Swiss news
website www.swissinfo.org,
Youssef Nada the 75-year-old
founder and former managing
director of Nada Management,
formerly known as al-Taqwa,
said: he was suing. because of
financial losses incurred result-
ing from a three-and-a-half year
Swiss investigation that col-
lapsed a year ago.

Switzerland was forced to
drop the case against top offi-
cials of the company on July 1,
2005 because they, said authori-
ties in the Bahamas failed to





provide essential bank records
by a court deadline.

Claude Nicati, the deputy
Swiss federal prosecutor,
claimed the Bahamas “never

gave a useable response” to

requests for judicial assistance
in relation to the case involv-
ing Nada Management Organi-
sation, which had controlled
Bank Al Taqwa, a former
Bahamian bank that went into
voluntary liquidation in early
2001.

Swiss investigators said the
Bahamian bank’s account
records were pivotal to their
case. No evidence has been pro-
vided by anyone to back up.the.
claims against Bank Al Taqwa
and its affiliates since they first
surfaced in 2001.

The Swiss allegations remain
unproved, and it is possible that

the prosecutors were trying to
create a diversion from their
own difficulties by attributing
blame for the case’s collapse
elsewhere.

Investigation

The Swiss authorities began
investigating the company
shortly after the September 11,
2001 attacks on Washington and
New York. The US government
says al-Taqwa helped fund
Osama bin Laden’s terror net-
work.

The company has been list-

ed by the United States since

late 2001 as an organisation
accused of helping fund terror-
ism.

After the publication of the
list in 2001, police raided the



Human trafficking concern

@ BRADLEY Brown said:.,..
“The border patrol needs te. Ge
---be reinforeed.”

_MSEDRIC Rekeley said: “We
» need to,enforce the inspections

of vessels i in our waters.”



THE Bahamas was criticised
by the US Department of State
in its 2006 annual report on
human trafficking. ,

The report listed the

- Bahamas as a country of spe-

cial mention — along with Iraq,
Haiti and Somalia.

“Tittle government ‘attention’ *

to the issue and the presence of
large. numbers of illegal
migrants in the country raise
concerns that there may be a
significant number of traffick-
ing victims in need of assis-
tance,” the report said.

The Tribune took to the
streets on Tuesday to ask the
‘public about their views on
human trafficking in the
Bahamas.

Is human trafficking really a
: concern in the Bahamas?

‘One person agreed that

human per is “a big con-

‘ cern”
“It ‘has been going on for
years “it is also-common

knowledge unas this is going .

on,” he said. :

“The Pahanias is only so
lange,” said another. “Our soci-
ety can’t take the overload. The
persons responsible need to be
caught. e

owever, Tyrone Albury
pdinted out that “America has-
n’t been successful in stopping
the Mexicans from being traf-
ficked across its borders.”

What can we do?” he asked.

“The border patrol needs to
be reinforced” said Bradley
Brown “I’ve lived on the ocean
mbst of my life and I’ve seen
evidence of human trafficking.”



How does Human Trafficking
affect us as a country?

“Most illegal persons don’t
contribute to our society. Our
social services system can’t han-
dle the extra added pressure,”
said a local barber “We end up
paying for them. tts 5 seu

One eoiaientator said that

the effects of human trafficking
“are showing in medical expens-
es every year. Bahamians need
to stand up on the issue.”
“Soon we'll have to-pay to
send our children to public
schools. The cost of learning is
going up because of human traf-
ficking,” added Sedric Reckley.
“We need to enforce the inspec-
tion of vessels in our waters.”

What can the Bahamas.do to
reduce or stop human traffick-
ing?

Joycelyn McPhee said: “The

- government is doing its best, but

I believe we need outside help.
Maybe: we need to come. to an
agreement with nearby coun-
tries to help patrol the borders.

“The money people spend to
come here illegally can be used
to help their countries,” she said.

“Human trafficking.can be

stopped with regular checks of ,

our borders” said a business man.
“If we increase our border patrols,
we won’t have the problem.”

A Bay Street taxi driver com-
mented: “Someone needs to be
held accountable for this. If not
the traffickers, the countries of
the persons being trafficked.

“Tf the traffickers are caught
before they get in our waters,
we won’t have that problem.”



@ JOYCELYN Mephee s said:
“The Government is doing its
best, but I believe we need
outside help.” |



@ TYRONE Albury said:
“America hasn’t succeeded in
stopping the Mexicans from
being trafficked across its
borders, what can we do?”

sultation on the proposed Fam-
ily and Child Protection Act,
2006 has begun in Freeport.

The first of two meetings was

held by the Ministry of Social |

ing that the proposed Act isa
major legislative initiative that
the government is undertaking
on behalf of all children.

“This is a work in progress
and we wish to obtain the views
of the Bahamian public before
we go any further because it is
indeed a landmark piece of leg-
islation that looks at several

‘Acts, one of which dates back to

1947,” she explained.

Mrs Griffin said some of the
proposed innovations include:

raising the top age of juvenile

the creation of an advocate for

The proposed Act, she said,
also addresses the issue of
fathers’ rights in regard to chil-
dren born out of wedlock.

During the meeting, one com-
mentator said he believes the
‘government and not parents
should assist in caring for chil-
dren born to minors 16-years-
old or younger.

“Tf we are responsible for
what our children up to 18
years, then I think the legal age
of (sexual) consent should also
be changed,” he said.

Concerns were also raised

- about the large number of

young children loitering at Port
Lucaya until very late hours
without adult supervision.

“The police do nothing about
this,” complained one person.

Rev Dr Emmette Weir also
expressed concerns about the
number of young persons taking
up late-night jobs — particularly
on school nights.

Rev Weir said there should |

be stiff penalties to employers

who take on young children at

such hours.

The “rights of the child” sec-
tion of the proposed Act says
that no child shall be employed
or engaged in any activity that
may be detrimental to his
health, education, or mental,
physical or moral development.

It also says that no one under

there no such plans at this time.

Christie anger at US senator visit

FROM page one

know if certain government
ministers had abdicated their
responsibilities for governing,
as he had seen news coverage of
Iowa Senator Tom Harkin dis-
cussing matters related to
defence, education, and agri-
culture from the office of the
opposition leader.

In a somewhat anticipatory

manner, Mr Christie jumped on -
the matter and proceeded to. .
chastise Mr.Ingraham over the

way he “embarrassingly” parad-
ed the visiting Senator Detore
the media.

Speaking of Senator Harkin’ s
meeting with Mr Ingraham,
Minister Christie said: “When

he went to the office of the
leader of the opposition, he met

the press. He was considerably .

embarrassed.”
Senator Harkin, Primé Min-
ister Christie continued, “did

not intend, nor did he think it

appropriate to. participate in
Bahamian affairs in the way it
happened in the office of the
leader of the opposition.”

Although he acknowledged
that Senator Harkin has resided in
Mr Ingraham’s constituency of
North Abaco for some 37 years,
Mr Christie said that Mr Harkin
had come to see the Prime Min-
ister for discussions, and because
their meeting was a working
meeting, Mr Christie said, “I did
not choose to publicise.”

Mr Christie’s commen
immediately drew fire from the
floor, as opposition membéfs
wanted to know why Mr
Christie “publicised” othiér
diplomatic and courtesy visits
with foreign dignitaries, yet te
chose not to publicise his meet-
ing with the lowa Senator whio,
has led efforts in his home state
to improve education, health
care, and agriculture. Ee

During his courtesy call with
the former prime minister, Sen-
ator Harkin fielded questions
from the media on US immi-
gration policies, US’s involy¢-
ment in Iraq; education, ad
agriculture. %e

A veteran reporter who was
present at Senator Harkin’s yis-
it said that he did not get ithe
impression that the Senator was
embarrassed,

According to Jerome Sawyer,
“Mr Harkin answered questions
freely and openly, and he was
well in his right to decline

‘ answering questions.”

Dr Brent Hardt, Deputy
Chief of Mission at the Amerti-
can Embassy, said, whereas
Senator Harkin was not aware
that the media would have been
present for the meeting with the
leader of the opposition, he was
happy to answer questions put
to him.

Dr Hardt also said that'a mes-
sage was conveyed to the Prime
Minister from Senator Harkin
to inform him that the media
was present at his and Mr Ingra-
ham’s meeting. So the con-
veyance, according to Dr Hardt,
was done out of professidnal
courtesy to the Prime Minister,
as Senator Harkin did not want
to give the impression that he
was trying to make a political,
statement for or against one
political party, particularly dur-
ing this political season.

As to the media presence at
the meeting, however, Dr Hardt
said that Senator Hardt was
“surprised, not embarrassed.”

Multiculturalism in the Bahamas

HE increasingly large
: numbers of so-called
“illegal immigrants” in this
country and the reaction of
most Bahamians is a perennial
subject of discussion among
almost all of the residents of
these islands.

Sigmund Freud (1856-1939)
is reported as saying: “Intoler-
ance of groups is often, strange-
ly enough, exhibited more
strongly against small differ-

ences than fundamental ones.”

Almost all developed soci-
eties are multicultural. They are
multicultural in the sense that
their members pursue different
conceptions of the good life and

assign different meanings and

significance to human activities
and relations. This cultural
diversity is a product of several
factors, including the rise of
moral individualism and a
decline in the traditional moral
consensus, ethnic and religious

ent questions and require dif-
ferent responses. We will con-
centrate here on immigrants
and look at what claims they
and the receiving society may
rightly make on each other and
how best these may be recon-
ciled.

[ nniction is, of course,
only one source of cultur-
al diversity, and we should not
conclude that society was cul-
turally homogeneous before sig-
nificant immigration began.
Moreover, the diversity intro-
duced by immigrants — who
themselves belong to a range of
religious and ethnic groups.— is
not necessarily deeper or more
extensive than that which
already exists within the
Bahamian society. This society
includes many individuals and
groups who take quite differ-
ent views from the majority on
such issues as homosexuality,

. cohabitation, the place of reli-

gion in public life, family disci-
pline and the respect for the
law. In most of these areas,
immigrants tend to share the
views of the majority.

Most persons hold that immi- .

grants should they wish to be
accepted as full citizens, should
merge into the national culture
and.express exclusive loyalty to
their country of settlement. If
they choose to hold on to their
culture and retain close ties with
their country of origin, they
should not complain if the rest
of society refuses to identify
with them and treat them
unequally.

Such aggressive assimilation
is now considered a minority
view. The more common opin-
ion is a set of views that we
might call integrationism. This
view stresses the importance of
a common culture but accepts a
two-way process, with the host
country adapting to some extent
to newcomers. Many integra-
tionists also appreciate that
immigrants might wish to,
indeed have a right to, retain
parts of their cultural identity,
and that integration could be
minimal, limited mainly to soci-
ety’s common institutions. But if
integration of immigrants is a
vital national goal, it is not quite
clear how one can exempt some
areas of life from its demands.
There are those who might
think that economic and polit-
ical integration is enough, oth-
ers argue that society cannot be
cohesive unless integration is
extended to the moral, social
and cultural areas of life as well,
and that allowing immigrants
to integrate partially is to secure
for them privileges over other
members of society. This view
appears to many observers as
rather ad hoc and inconsistent.

There is a third approach,
which stresses the concept of
equal citizenship. In this view, a



SHIFT _the future

political community is a volun-
tary association of free and
equal citizens held together by
principles of justice’as embod-
ied in the structure of public
authority and a system of rights
and obligations. So long as
immigrants accept these princi-
ples — becoming “constitutional
patriots” — nothing more is
required of them. This is a vital
concept but we must examine
this view very closely.

hile such a view,
* without close exam-

‘ination, has much to offer. The
view with its avoidance of the -

ideologically loaded language
of integration and assimilation,
it is inadequate in important
respects. Members of a political
community share common
interests and bonds, and make
claims and entertain expecta-

tions of each other that they do ©

not in relation to outsiders.
Their relations with each other
are bounded and mediated by
their membership of a single

‘community. Citizenship is not

only a matter of rights and
obligations, but involves identi-



A society is nota

of individuals who
happen to live
together in the
same geographic
area and are only
contingently relat-
ed to each other

fying with the political commu-
nity, seeing it as one’s own,
accepting responsibility for it
and promoting its well-being.
In welfare states, citizenship
also means a willingness to
share one’s resources with fel-
low citizens: an obligation to

ensure that others enjoy the ©
basic conditions of a decent life. .:

Instead of.focusing on how
immigrants can be assimilated

or integrated, we should ask ©

how they can become equal cit-

izens bound to the rest by those -

ties of common belonging. This
obviously requires some form

‘of integration in the sense that

immigrants should share certain
of society’s basic norms and val-
ues. However, integration and
assimilation are the means, not
the end, of that common
belonging. :
A society is not a random
collection of individuals who

happen to live together in the.

same geographic area and are
only contingently related to
each other. It represents an
intricate and complex way of
life built up through struggles
and sacrifices over several gen-
erations. Since their identities,
lives and personal histories are
closely bound up with it, people
rightly feel possessive and pro-
tective about their society. They
want to be reassured that immi-
grants, who come here by
choice, value their membership

of it, and understand and.

respect its way of life. Ordinary

cessful new applicants to join
them in good faith, observe
their norms and do nothing to
undermine them. This applies
even mote So in the case of
political societies, which have
long —established historical
identities and which their mem-
bers regard as their home.

sk society in which
immigrants have come
to settle is not only a cherished
home to its members, it is also
their own and their children’s
future home, and calls for a
moral and emotional commit-
ment. Immigrants should there-
fore identify themselves with: it,
make it their own and accept
the responsibilities and obliga-
tions that this entails. This does
not mean that they should sev-
er their ties with their country of
origin, any more than a mar-
riage requires the spouses to
disown or distance themselves
from their. parental ties. Such a
demand is unfair and unneces-
sary. What can be demanded of
immigrants is that they should

‘see their new country as their

home,‘whatever other homes
they might have. It should mean
something to them, have an
intrinsic value and not just an
instrumental one — as a place
to make money or escape per-
secution — and they should give
reasonable evidence of their
commitment to it. Such a com-
mitment establishes their good
faith, qualifies them for full
membership and entitles them
to make such demands on the
rest of society as their process of

resettlement requires.

No society can expect to
remain the same when it admits
new members, especially when

their number is fairly large.

Every society redefines itself in
response to the emergence of
new generations of young men
and women who bring with them |
new ideas, aspirations, forms.of
self-understanding and modes
of behaviour. Immigrants pre-
sent society with a similar chal-
lenge, compounded by the fact
that many of them arrive'as
adults. with only limited room
for remoulding. Their demands
carry moral weight and are like-
ly to receive a more favourable
response if they have made a full
commitment to.society. ~
Just as immigrants need’ to
commit themselves to the
receiving society, society must
of course make a commitment
to them. Immigrants are new at
this, and liable to much misun-
derstanding and negative
stereotyping. They need time -
to acquire the necessary cultur-
al competence, and in the
meantime they lack a clear and
coherent voice. Being outsiders,
they will often, at least initially,
experience suspicion and even
hostility. They are also likely to
be discriminated against in sig-
nificant areas of life. They may
suffer from disadvantages
Resulting from poverty, lack
of language, the trauma of tran-—
sition, the confusion‘and worry
about how to adjust to the new

society, anxiety about their chil-

dren, mismatch between their
aspirations and the reality about
their new life and much more.
The wider society needs to ease
their transition and help them .to
feel and become its full mem-
bers. :

Former administrator is

touted as FNM candidate

@ By Tribune Staff Writer

A GROUP of keen FNM
supporters in South Abaco is
trying to enlist the island’s for-
mer administrator as the par-
ty’s general election candidate.

The approach to Everette
Hart follows an attempt by ex-
PLP stalwart Mr Edison Key to
get the official nomination.

Sources told The Tribune yes-

‘ terday that “a significant num-
ber” of FNMs are strongly
opposed to Mr Key becoming
the party’s representative.

And they fear his. involve-
ment in the selection process
will split the party in the run-up
to the election, which has to be
called before May next year. °

Mr Hart, who was extremely
popular as Abaco administrator
from 1996 onwards, retired from
government service in March.



lM EVERETTE Hart

When first approached some
weeks ago, Mr Hart reportedly
said he was not prepared to get
involved. But since then, his
admirers have said he has
shown “encouraging signs” of
being interested in running.

“He is a very capable and hon-
est man who did a splendid job
when he was administrator

here,” one source said yesterday.

“He was very effective, very
straight and very honest. He is a
man who is physically. short in
stature but he stands very tall
indeed.”

Lobbying for Mr Hart’s
involvement began after Mr
Key - who defected from the
PLP two years ago - sent a letter
to the party expressing interest
in running for South Abaco.

As a white Bahamian, he is
seen by some in the FNM lead-

ership as a strong contender for

this particular seat.

However, opponents of Mr
Key’s candidature made it clear
yesterday that he was “inappro-
priate” for many reasons, having

allegedly made “many enemies”

in the area during his PLP days.

They.said many keen FNMs
would not register if they thought
he was going to run. This, they

are pleased to announce that

claimed, could put the seat in jeop-
ardy, as the party majority has tra-
ditionally been narrow.

“While we’re desperate to get
rid of the PLP government, we
would not feel comfortable about
voting for Edison Key,” said one
islander. ,

“The problem now is that

we're getting close to decision

day and we have not lined up a
realistic alternative. In the last

few days, the name of Everette.

Hart has come up because he is
known to be a very fair man.
“He was sent to Abaco as
administrator by then Prime Min-
ister Hubert Ingraham. Although
Mr Hart was reputed to be'a PLP
supporter at the time, Mr Ingra-
ham felt he would nonetheless
do a good job.— and he did.
“He is probably the best
administrator we have had in
Abaco. Even people at Man 0’

‘War Cay, who would tradition-

ally favour a white candidate, are
strongly behind Mr Hart.”

Even though some in the FNM
want to attract more white can-
didates, Mr Key’s foes believe he
will put off more voters than he
will attract.

One party member said: “I am
afraid if he gets involved, we may
lose by default. We have always

had very close elections here and

have always had to work hard to
clinch the seat.”

Current MP Robert Sweeting
has made it clear that he is not
interested in running.

Former MP Mike Lightbourn,
a well-known.realtor who served
in the House of Assembly for sev-
eral years, has been approached
without success. So has Abaco
attorney Fred Gottlieb, another
ex-MP, who is reportedly not
interested in running again.

Nassau businessman Rick

‘Lowe and lawyer Richard Light-

bourn, brother of Mike, have also
been considered.

But Mr Hart is now seen as a

strong alternative, especially as
he is knowledgeable about Abaco
and is popular among all groups.

Bahamas has highes:
dollar ‘leakage’ in Caribbean

M By NEILHARTNELL |. .
‘Tribune Business Editor _



he Bahamas spends on
imports a greater per-
centage of every.tourist
dollar than -all ‘rival
Caribbean countries, with
$0. 85 of every tourist $1 being repatri-

ated outside this nation; an indication -

. that the industry’s benefits are not trick-
ing down to the Bahamian people and
businesses.

Professor Anthony Clayton, giving

_ a presentation on behalf of University.

of the..West Indies (UWI) economist
Diaram Ramjeesingh at yesterday’s.
Small Island Developing States (SIDS)

tourism conference i in Nassau, said the

Bahamas was “right up there at the

top”. when it.came to the ‘leakage’ of :

tourism dollars from its economy.

- While the Bahamas saw 85 per cent
_of its tourism earnings spent outside
this nation on imports, the rates for all

other Caribbean states were much low-

er...

WTO secretary-general uEE Ee nation’s tourism model may be partly to blame

In the Cayman Islands, just 65 per
cent of tourism earnings was spent on
imports. In Antigua & Barbuda, the
percentage was 56 per cent; for Bar-
bados 66 per cent; Bermuda, 59 per
cent;. Trinidad & Tobago, just 22 per
cent; St Lucia, 62 per cent; St Kitts, 60
per cent; Jamaica, 50 per cent; and
Turks & Caicos, 69 per cent.

Professor Clayton said: “Where
you've got a high rate of leakage, that
money is going out of the jurisdiction.
More of what the industry requires is

“not being sourced locally.”

'. The findings are a damning indict-

ment of the Bahamas’ failure to devel-’

op strong linkages between its hotel

_industry and smaller Bahamian-owned

companies that could supply the sector
with the goods it requires.

Professor Clayton added: “Countries
like SIDS, that have few economic link-

have small income multiples.”

For the Bahamas, Mr Ramjeesingh
showed that the tourism income multi-
plier was 0.79, meaning that for every
tourist dollar spent in this nation, it
only created an additional $0.79.

Professor Clayton said the tourism
income multiplier for most SIDS was
less than one, another indication that
most of the benefits from the tourism
industry were being felt outside the

‘Bahamas and other economies.

In contrast, for developed..nations
such’as Turkey, the multiplier was 1. 96,
indicating that each tourist dollar spent
was generating almost another $2

through the money multiplier effect.
The multiplier for the Bahamas and

other SIDS was about half of that.’
Professor Clayton said the onus on
improving this situation also lay with

smaller | companies in the Bahamas and -

other SIDS, as in ma cases their

products were Hot up to quality stan-

_ dards, and in sufficient quantity, to

interest hotels. He also suggested that

micro-businesses should organise col- .

lectively.
Francesco Pravpialli: the United
Nations World Tourism Organisation’s

(WTO) secretary-general, yesterday

suggested that the tourism model the
Bahamas had pursued may have been
partly responsible for the high rate of
tourism dollars ‘leakage’ from. this
nation.

He explaind that the Bahamas had
focused. heavily on the five-star; top-
end of the market that featured large
hotel chains with named brands. To
provide an experience that matched

the marketing, these_properties would

invest heavily on luxury goods and

items, many of which needed to be

imported from abroad.
“Reducing this [leakage] is some-







in general,” Mr Frangialli said.

“If you come to the Bahamas: and a
stay in luxury, five-star accommoda- «

tion, rather a high proportion of what

‘you spend will leave the economy,

because luxury hotels spend a lot on
imports - state-of-the-art audio systems,
food.”

thing that should be done by the i
tourism sector, but also by the economy |

However, Mr Frangialli pointed out

that those who stayed in Bahamian |

the Prime Minister. -
He explained that master

' “To date, Ginn has spent $70
million on its Bahamas project,
and Bahamian contractors have
been engaged to perform the

‘Mr Christie said the investors

Ginn has built administration

Mr Christie said this was in
addition to the opening of tem-

Mr Christie said: “A 14-seat

formance and potential threat
of imports, the extent to which

risk. The relative vulnerability
of each Caribbean economy to
natural disasters, such as hurri-

canes, must also be taken into ©

consideration.

Industry Risk

The assessment of the risk
posed by the industry in which a
company operates includes an
examination of market attrac-
tiveness, extent of competition,
bargaining power with cus-
tomers/suppliers and govern-
ment policy.

A market is more attractive
if it.is bigger, more diversified
and less cyclical with respect to
revenues and/or costs. Questions
such as how important the mar-
ket is to the overall economy,

in what stage of its.life cycle the
product is, and is there immi-
nent risk of product obsoles-
cence, must also be answered.
When high barriers to entry
and low threats from substitutes _
characterise an industry, either
domestic or imported, then the
revenues of entities operating
within such an industry are rel-
atively protected. The extent of |
bargaining power enjoyed by a
company with its customers and
suppliers also indicates the rela’
tive ability to protect margins.:

THE TRIBUNE

Pi eS aaa
The ‘strain’ of rent

default and seizure





ENTREPRENEURS should
be mindful of-a landlord’s right
to distrain, in the event that an
entrepreneur-tenant defaults
on payment or any of the terms
and conditions of the commer-
cial lease.

In circumstances where a
landlord wishes to enforce his
right to forfeit a commercial or
residential lease for non-pay-
ment of rent, it is important the
landlord or his authorised
agent makes a formal demand
for the rent or ensure that there
is some exemption, under the
terms and conditions of the
lease, that allows him to waive
this right to formally demand
payment.

Notwithstanding the tenan-
t’s equitable right to relief
against forfeiture (provided

certain conditions are met), the’

landlord may seek to exercise
other remedies available to him
in satisfaction of payment of
rent monies that may be in
arrears, and for which the ten-
ant has effectively breached an
important contractual term of

the lease. One such remedy is a,

landlord’s legal right to distrain
forrentinarrears. . -
Under the summary remedy
of distress for rent, a landlord
may secure the payment of rent
or the performance of certain
obligations due to him by seiz-
ing a tenant’s goods and chat-
tels - any property other than
freehold land - found upon the
premises in respect of which

the rent or obligations are due —

without the use of legal
process. |

Distress for rent is the
process by which a landlord

seizes a tenant’s goods and

chattels in order to secure pay-
ment of rent in arrears. If the
tenant fails to pay the rent
arrears within a specified time
period after distress has been
levied, and notice of distress

- given, the landlord may sell the

goods and keep the amount
due.

Legal
Ease






Contractually, the seizure of
goods by the landlord in exer-
cise of his right to distrain acts
as a security for the perfor-
mance of an obligation — the
tenant’s obligation to pay rent
and the landlord’s right to
receive rent in consideration
of leasing his premises/proper-
ty.

The right to distrain applies
only to goods and personal
chattels. Certain goods are
absolutely privileged against
distraint, while others have
conditional privilege, meaning
they may only be taken where
there is no other sufficient dis-

. tress.

Articles subject to absolute
privilege against distraint:

(1) (a) property of the
Crown

(b) property of those enjoy-
ing diplomatic privilege

(c) property in the custody
of the law

(2) Property delivered to a
person carrying on a public
trade to be dealt with in the
exercise of his trade.

(3) Fixtures

(4) Wearing apparel, bedding
and tools of the trade valued
at a certain fixed amount.

(5) Perishable articles, mon-
ey, and wild animals.

_ Certain requirements must
be met before the right to dis-
train for rent may be exercised:

(1) The relationship of land-
lord and tenant must exist both
when the-rent becomes due
and when the distress is levied.

(2) The rent must be in
arrears.

If the rent is only payable on .

a condition precedent, it cannot
be distrained until the condi-

tion is fulfilled. In contract law,
a condition precedent is “a pro-
vision that does not form part
of a contractual obligation [in
this case, the terms: of the
lease], but operates to suspend
the contract until a specified
event has happened”.

The lease must be an existing

lease in order for the right to

distrain to be exercised.
Although a formal instrument
is not required, possession tak-
en by the tenant under an
agreement for a tenancy which
can be specifically enforced
gives the landlord the right to
distrain.

Additionally, a distress can
only be levied for a rent which
is certain. It is also important

that the rent be in arrears.

oping can make you more or
less dependent,” Mr Frangialli
said. “A lower average daily
spend can bring more to the
economy, creating more local
jobs.”

The WTO secretary-general
added that reducing the tourism
industry’s reliance on imports,
and ‘leakages’ was a question
that needed to be debated
between the Government and
the hotel chains.

Mr Frangialli said the Gov-
ernment had instruments at its
disposal to encourage hotels to
purchase products from local
Bahamian suppliers, such as tax
and other incentives, plus the
marketing support it provided
to the industry and develop-
ment approvals.

He added: “Economic leak-
ages ‘are quite common in small
island states. The need to
import a relatively high pro-
portion of the inputs required
by hotels, transport and other
tourism companies, repatriation
of benefits for foreign tourism

companies operating in SIDS,
management fees of foreign
hotel operators, employment of
expatriate staff are among the
main generators of leakages.
“These need to be reduced
through finding linkages with
other industries in the local
economy whenever possible,
but also by imagining and
putting in place innovative
development and management

models in the tourism sector
itself.” ;

Jennifer Edwards, a sustain-
able tourism lecturer at UWI,
said the tourism industry need-
ed to be treated as an export
industry by policymakers, mov-
ing beyond traditional schools
of planning and thought.

She added that this required a
new “mindset” from tourism

and development planners, and.
urged the Bahamas and other
SIDS to focus on enhancing
linkages between the domestic
economy and tourism, rather
than trying to plug the leaks.

“The full economic potential:
of tourism is not being realised,” :
Ms Edwards said. “J_ong-ierm ;
competitiveness is being ¢'sad-'
vantaged by not having ths par-’
ticipation of the local entre. »»¢-:
neur and the small man.”

In conjunction with a Wort. ;
Trade Organisation (WTO):
strategist, Ms Edwards had:
developed a proposal for;
designing tourism ‘destination }
clusters’ as part of a Strategic!
National Export Strategy,;
believing this will help retain;
tourism dollars in local:
economies.

Grand Bahamians are unlike-
ly, though, to believe a buyer
has been found for the Royal
Oasis until its identity is
announced and the deal com-
pleted, given the many ‘false
dawns’ that have surrounded
the resort’s future with govern-

corner.

The Royal Oasis has been

struck in September 2004, leav-

job. Following a-series of meet-
ings held in New York last
month, involving the resort’s de
facto owner, Lehman Brothers
private equity arm, the Hotel

Authority, various offers for the
Royal Oasis were assessed.

[: ‘Dynamic’ Roy:
Oasis buyer in place

Royal Oasis. One of those was
the Barlow Group, a Toronto-
based real estate developer,
which has projects located
across Europe and in Canada.
That group had promised an

- investment of between $175-

$250 million, inclusive of the
purchase price, to revitalise the
Royal Oasis, but it is under-
stood that the potential buyer is
not the Barlow Group.

The identity of the other top
bidder was unknown, but The
Tribune understood it was a
group that had entered the Roy-
al Oasis race at the last minute.
That group set its offer price
without inspecting the Royal
Oasis’s physical premises.

Meanwhile, the lrish proper-
ty developer that already has
interests in Freeport, Harcourt
Developments, has offered $30
million for the Royal Oasis.

It was initially part of a three-
strong group including West-
gate Resorts and Planet Holly-
wood, the proposed hotel and
casino operators, proposing a

$200 million investment in the
Royal Oasis. All three parties
are still interested in the Grand
Bahama property, although it

‘is unknown f they are part of

the same consortium.

Back in 2005, Obie Wilch-
combe, minister of tourism, had
described the more than $22
million owed by the Royal
Oasis to various creditors -
including many government and
Grand Bahama Port Authority
agencies - as a "quagmire".

The Bahamas Hotel Industry
Management Pension Fund and
Bahamas Hotel and Allied
Industries Pension Fund have

both executed a judgement to’

"take possession" of the resort's
assets, meaning that a portion of
the sales proceeds will have to
be used to settle the sums owed
to them by the Royal Oasis,
which in January 2005 amount-
ed to $4.1 million. ;

They have argued that this
encourages cruise ship passengers
to stay on board rather than dis-
embark in Nassau, reducing per
capita visitor spending by this cat-
egory of tourists. Per capita
spending by cruise ship passen-
gers has now fallen to between
$60-$70:

Mr Issa yesterday said the
largest vessel in the world, the
Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines’
Freedom of the Seas, with 4,375
rooms on board had a shopping
mall that. was larger than Bay
Street.

“There’s probably more rooms
and more people than in the Exu-
mas,” Mr Issa said. What does it
leave behind?”

He added: “Promote the bene-
fits of land-based tourism,
because the sea-based tourism,
which leaves very little of the
tourist dollar behind, is damag-
ing to the social environment.”

In contrast, land-based
stopover visitors to the Bahamas
have an average per capita spend-

Yesterday’s conference was
focused on sustainable tourism

development, and how tourism- _
‘related projects could be viable

and maximise the economic and

- social benefits for their local com- .

munities, while also preserving
the environment.

Mr Issa said: “Good environ-
mental practice is good business.
That’s a self-evident truth.

“In terms of retaining the:
tourism dollar, that starts from: -

the building and design of the
project through to the staffing
and supplies and the raw materi-

“als needed to produce the tourism

product.” ,

Mr Issa cited his first resort,

as'an example of how projects
could develop links with domestic

-manufacturers and suppliers to

dollars were retained within the

When construction began in
1973, Mr Issa said Jamaica had
very limited foreign exchange
capacity, forcing the project to
rely on Jamaican suppliers.

But Mr Issa said this did not
mean just hiring Jamaican, con-
tractors, architects and engineers.
Instead, it meant that the resort’s
light fixtures were manufactured
locally, along with the floor tiles,
furniture and fibreglass boats.

He added that the resort also
imposed penalty clauses on con-
tractors for damaging native trees.

_ Mr Issa said some 77 per cent

of seafood; 48 percent of beef;

came to the landscaping for the

He added that the landscapin

FINANCIAL RISK

Financial risk assessment
begins with an evaluation of a
company's accounting policies,
with a view to determining the
degree of transparency and dis-

closure exercised by manage- :

ment. Some of the factors
examined are the company's
policies on income recognition,
depreciation, inventory valua-
tion, off-balance sheet items and
contingent liabilities, and the
consistent application of the
chosen policies.
Wherever required, a com-
pany's financial statements are
recast to accurately reflect its
performance in a format that is
comparable over time and

across companies.

CariCRIS constructs finan-
cial projections incorporating

its expectations on economy, .

industry and business variables.

gic plans. A variety of financial

| PROJECT RISK

If a company is executing or
intending to execute a major
project, the risks associated with
that project impact the compa-
ny's overall credit quality. Risks
affecting the implementation
and viability of the project, such
as the likelihood of time and/or
cost overruns and risks arising
from the funding structure of °
the project, are examined. The
company's track record in
implementing projects of similar
magnitude is relevant in this
context. The size of the project
relative to existing operations
as well as its potential impact
on existing business indicate to
what extent the project risk
assessment will impinge on the
overall credit rating.

Based on the above, one can
arrive at the stand-alone credit-
worthiness of the entity being
rated. In addition, CariCRIS
assesses any external support
that the entity/rated debt can
derive, such as support from a

B TENNIS

- PARIS
Associated Press

HOPPING in place in a hall-

way leading to the court, Rafael
Nadal was drenched with sweat
before he smacked a ball in his
French Open quarter-final,
.. according to Associated Press.

A study in perpetual motion,
Nadal actually got a bit of a
breather on Wednesday, when
Novak Djokovic of Serbia-
Montenegro quit with a back
injury after losing the first two
sets. That put defending cham-
pion Nadal into the semi-finals
at Roland Garros with what
goes into the books, as his 58th
consecutive victory on, clay,
extending his record.

“The fact that today’s match
was, I wouldn’t say “comfort-
able,’ but low-intensity, is going
to ‘help Rafael,” said Nadal’s
coach and uncle, Toni. “It’s
great to compensate for the
long matches he’s had.” |

That is hardly good news for
Nadal’s next opponent, Ivan
Ljubicic, who beat Julien Ben-

‘neteau of France 6-2, 6-2, 6-3
to’reach his first semi-final in
27:trips to Grand Slam tourna-
ments.

With No 2 Nadal facing No
Ljubicic, and No 1 Roger Fed-
erer playing No 3 Diego Nal-
bandian on Friday, it’s first time
sitice 1985 that the men seeded
1-4 at the French Open all made
the semi-finals.

."I don’t think there’s any
doubt that (Nadal) is a big
favorite. Of the four of us left,
he is definitely the favoured
one,” said Ljubicic, who has not
faced a seeded player in the
tournament. “Just by reaching
the semi-finals, I did something
incredible. There’s absolutely
going to be zero pressure for

Endurance

The French Open is general-
ly regarded as the most gru-
elling tournament on tour, and
this year’s edition apparently
was as tough as any: Djokovic’s
retirement was the eighth of
2006, the most among men at
Roland Garros in the modern
era. Like the other majors, it
requires players to string togeth-
er seven victories over two
weeks to earn the title. Unlike
the others, it’s played on clay,
which tends to extend points
and matches, making stamina
and will as important as superb
strokes. g

As well-stocked as the 20-
year-old Nadal is with all three
of those components, even he
was grateful to get off the court
after fewer than 2 hours
Wednesday: He logged more
than eight hours over his previ-
ous two matches.

“For those of us more used
to playing on clay, maybe we
resist a little more, but some-

‘times we have a tough time, too.

We feel the pain, too,” he said.
“It’s not always easy to play
four, five sets with such high
intensity.”

He sure doesn’t show it on
court, where he bounces on his
toes during the coin toss, sprints
to the baseline for pre-match
warm-ups — and then really gets
going once play begins, churn-
ing up clouds of dirt as he
scrambles and slides.

And yet, for a while, the 63rd-

ranked Djokovic hung in there:
on long rallies, winning seven
of the first 10 points that lasted
at least 10 strokes. And.
Djokovic actually finished with
more winners, 27-20. ;

Perhaps with that in mind,
the 19-year-old Djokovic gave
this assessment of Nadal: “He’s
the best on this surface, but he’s
not unbeatable. That’s for
sure.”

Still, Nadal does things few
others can. In the ninth game
of the match, a seemingly out-
of-position Nadal skidded into
place for a forehand passing
winner down the line. Djokovic,

a bit incredulous, watched the
ball sail by, then applauded his

opponent’s brilliance.

Nadal broke the unseeded
Djokovic’s serve to start the sec-
ond set on the match’s longest
point, a 27-point exchange.
Nadal conjured up a drop shot
that Djokovic was unable to
handle, and the underdog
pounded the ball off the court
and into the stands. That was
part of a run in which Nadal
claimed 11 of 12 points to open
a 3-0 lead in the set.

Treatment

Djokovic received medical
treatment at the ensuing
changeover, lying on a towel for
a massage. From then on, he
rarely would go more than a
point or two without clutching
at his back.

Trailing 6-4, 6-4,. Djokovic
served to begin the third set.
After missing a backhand to fall
behind 15-30, he shook his head
and walked to the net to con-
cede the first major quarter-
final of his career. Djokovic also
retired at last year’s French
Open, in the second round; this
was the first time in the Open
era a man had retired at Roland
Garros in the quarterfinals or
later. “
“It’s not nice to win like
that,” Nadal said.

He'll take it, of course, and
plans to work on serving on his
day off. ,

Ljubicic’s serve is his strong
suit, and. he swatted 13 aces’

times in a row to start the

in the past, making it tough for
the coaching staff and the BBF

selection.

ONCE again, the Bahamas Lawn
Tennis Association will focus its atten-
tion on a young, vibrant team atthe
Davis Cup competition.

Next week, the team of Devin
Mullings, Marvin Rolle, H’Cone
Thompson and Chris Eldon will carry
the Bahamas flag at the American
Zone III Davis Cup tie in San Sal-
vador, El Salvador.

This is not the first time that the
Bahamas has relied on the younger
players to lead the way. This is the
third year that the Bahamas has seen
the transformation after Mark Knowles
and Mark Merklein, the last two sea-
soned players, made their exit.

In 2003, the Bahamas lost 0-5 to Peru
in Peru in the American Zone One
quarter-final. The loss dropped the
Bahamas to Zone II for the first time
as a country since 1992, when the
Bahamas advanced to Zone One.

For the next decade, the Bahamas

enjoyed a greal deal of success, riding

on the success achieved by Roger Far-
rington, Knowles, Merklein, John Far-

rington and Sean Cartwright with John
Antonas as captain.

Those were definitely the glory days.
Those were days when the Bahamian
people look forward to the high level of
team competition, primarily because

the Bahamas had the opportunity to

host many of the ties.

Back then, even with the level of
success achieved, Bahamians were call-
ing fora transformation with the
younger players coming on board.

But it wasn’t time.

Since winning that first round, 3-2

‘in Chile in February, 1993, the
‘Bahamas has been on a high and it

was evident by the path that the team
trod.

When it wasn. ’t Smith, it was
Knowles, or Farrington, or Merklein,
or a combination of those players who
pulled the Bahamas through as we
maintained our position in Zone One.

Could any of the younger players
make an impact? I don’t think so.

This is definitely their time to shine
and with the Bahamas now in Zone

III, this new crop of players have the
opportunity to prove just as the players
ahead of them did, that they can play.

It’s going to be a mammoth task for
the Bahamas to regain its position in
Zone One. It may take a lot longer for

this crop of players to do it.

The difference — this crop of players
doesn’t have a big name player like
Smith or Knowles, who have already
made their presence felt on the inter-
national scene.

There’s no player on the team either
who has secured a top ranking in sin-
gles or doubles in the world. In fact,

none of the players are ranked in the

top 100.

The good thing about this squad is
that they are young. None of the play-
ers are over the age of 24 and, while
two of them are currently playing on
the circuit in Futures events, two are
still in college. -

_ Last year, I watched the team, inclu-
sive of Mullings, Rolle, Ryan Sweeting
and Thompson, give it a gallant effort

sons who have stepped their
game up to the next level.

therefore they are not that

past. We will be missing out on

in the post, Ryan Moss. This
was something the team was so
strong in the past.

“But we are still confident
that this team will be able to go

' to Jamaica.and finish in the top
three and therefore qualify to’

move onto the CentroBasket-
ball Tournament. This should
be the case for the female’s
team too. They are ready and
their core has a great mix.”

The Bahamas’ men’s squad
will have to ward off teams
from Barbados, St Kitts and
Nevis, US Virgin Islands, St
Vincent and the Grenadines,
Antigua and Barbuda and host
country Jamaica.

‘On the female side, teams
from Barbados, US Virgin
Islands, Jamaica and Antigua
and Barbuda will be in the line-
up. Defending champions Cuba
will not be taking part.

Both teams will have to finish
in the top three of the tourna-
ment in order to secure a quali-
fying spot in the CentroBasket-

National Team Head Coach
Mario Bowleg said the

Bahamas is on an elite level in
terms of talent and should fare
well in the tournament.

“At this age level, there are

not much squads better the

Bahamas,” he said, “However
this is a very difficult field and
play will be tough in every game.”
With a number of no shows
and a high turnout number at
the tryouts, Bowleg said the
team selection process has been
somewhat hindered this year.
“By this weekend we should

‘ have the field narrowed to 15

players,” he said, “The problem
is that we have been holding
back because we want to have
our best team possible available
and many players were not able
to come out to practices
because of summer school com-
mitments in the US.”

The team will not have a hec-
tic schedule as past Junior

. National teams have had in the

summer months, putting a lot

of pressure on a good perfor-

mance in this tournament.
“This is the only tournament

uniors optimistic in
build-up to tourney

we will be competing in this
summer, so we really want to
finish in the top four and
advance,” Bowleg said, “If not
we’ll move backward and play in
the Centrobasket tournament.”

The tournament format fea-
tures the eight teams divided
into two preliminary round
groups consisting of four teams
each.

The Bahamas is seated in

Group B along with Puerto

Rico,.Canada and Argentina.

The USA, Uruguay, Brazil
and the Dominican Republic
make up group A.

* THE Bahamas men’s nation-
al:team will have its work cut
out for them when they travel
to San Salvador, El Salvador
this weekend for the Americas
Zone Group III.

The Bahamas will be a part of

_ the eight-team field, which com-

ptisés Costa Rica, Cuba, El Sal-
vador, Haiti, Honduras, Puer-
to:Rico and Trinidad & Tobago,
that. will be play in the round-
robin tournament from June 12-
18.

» Each nation will drawn into
two round-robin groups of
four.The first two teams from
each pool will advance to anoth-
er round-robin group.

.The teams finishing first and
second in this final pool are pro-
moted to Americas Zone
Group II in 2007.

The teams finishing third and
fourth i in each pool advance to
another round-robin pool. The
teams finishing in third and
fourth in this subsequent pool

are relegated to Americas Zone -

Group IV in 2007.

This is the first time that the
Bahamas has found itself in this
position, but team captain John
Farrington is confident that the
team will prevail.

“Everybody is playing
Futures and some tournaments

Mi MARVIN Rolle



@ JOHN Farrington

in preparation for the tie,” Far-
rington said. “As far as I know,
everybody except Chris Eldon
are playing in some type of
tournament.” ;

Eldon came.on as.a late
replacement for reigning US
Open junior champion Ryan
Sweeting, who has since given
up his Bahamian citizenship to
play for the United States.

He will join collegian Devin
Mullings and pro players
Marvin Rolle and -H’Cone
Thompson, the latter three
players who are returning



from last year’s team.

Last year, the team lost 2-3
to the Netherlands Antilles in
March and was forced to play in
the relegation match in July in
Colombia. Blanked 0-5 in the
tie, the Bahamas was dropece
ie Zone III.

- Farrington said everybody is
gearing themselves. up for the

team and that should give them —
‘the incentive they need to Keep

their hopes alive.

“We have to match tough and
fit and ready to. play against
some strong competition,” Far-
rington stressed. “It can only
help us when we play the round
robin against a couple different
teams.”

Despite the fact that it is a
young team, minus Sweeting,
Farrington said the good thing is
that they essentially have the
same nucleus they had for the
past two years.

“Everybody know each other
and if everybody work towards
the same common goal, we
should do very well. It’s not an
individual game, So whoever
gets chosen to play, we don’t
have that problem where a play-
er is upset because he didn’t get
to play.”

When the team get together
in Colombia.on Sunday for the

first time, Farrington said his -

main emphasis will be placed
on getting the team focussed on
the task ahead of them.

Rumsfeld calls.

leakage

for withdrawal
of helicopters

& By RUPERT MISSICK Jr
Chief Reporter

_ US DEFENCE Secretary
Donald Rumsfeld has asked for
the complete withdrawal of US
army helicopter support from
the US/Bahamas joint anti-drug
smuggling operation.
According to Associated
Press reports, in a letter to US
Attorney General Alberto
Gonzales, Mr. Rumsfeld
requested that the helicopters
be removed by-next year Octo-
ber in light of the fact that the
US military’s resources are
being stretched thin by ongo-

ing conflicts in Iraq and.

Afghanistan.
-*.: Operation Bahamas Turks
and Caicos (OPBAT) currently

uses seven Army Blackhawk -

helicopters.
‘““OPBAT now competes with

resources necessary forthe war '
on terrorism and other activi- ©

ties in support of our nation’s
defence, with potential adverse
effects on the military pre-
paredness of the United States,”
Mr Rumsfeld said in his letter.

However, thus far, no formal
decision has been made to ter-
minate army support at this point.

Dr Brent Hardt, Deputy
Chief. of Missions at the US
Embassy in the Bahamas told
The Tribune yesterday that Mr
‘Rumsfeld’s request was just one
aspect of several ongoing.inter-
nal deliberations about who is
to supply the main support for
the OPBAT mission.

“Fven should a decision like
that be made (to remove the

helicopters), the expectation is
that the mission would be
-assigned to some capable US
agency to take on that mission,”
Dr Hardt said. :
~ . OPBAT, he said, will contin-
ue regardless and will have a
strong air presence.

“The ambassador: (John
Rood) is fully committed to this.
In fact he is going to. Washing-
ton later this month to reinforce
the importance of OPBAT,” Dr
Hardt said.

He pointed out that in addi-
tion to officers of the Royal
Bahamas Police and Defence
Force, OPBAT is staffed by
representatives of many US
government agencies — from the
US Coast Guard to US Cus-
toms ~ but based on priorities
elsewhere in the world, officials
are reassessing how. US. Army
assets are to be deployed.

“In the past couple of years
‘the Army has, given their heavy
involvement in Afghanistan and
Iraq, indicated that they would
wish another agency to take
over their part in this mission
and that has been an ongoing
debate and so far they have
continued to do that mission,”
Dr Hardt said.

- While he admitted that con-
tinuing to have Army helicopter
support is vital, support for
OPBAT remains firm.

“Obviously the army is very
capable and has.a tremendous

‘record of reliability and capa-
bility so it would be our prefer-
ence that the army continue to

Contractors threaten Andros roadblock

@ By PAUL TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter

NORTH Andros — Local
contractors have threatened to
block the construction of a 36-
mile stretch of main road in
North Andros if it is undertak-
en by a New Providence firm.

Claiming that they have been
overlooked, the contractors yes-
terday affirmed that the neces-
sary equipment and expertise
for the job is present on the
island. . eee ae ale

The contract, which is report-
edly worth $6 million, seems to
be the subject of some confu-
sion — as Andros sources insist

‘ that it has been awarded to New
Providence contractor Junior
Bethel, but Minister of Works
Bradley Roberts said the job
has not even gone to tender yet.

When The Tribune spoke
with Mr Bethel about the mat-
ter yesterday afternoon, he said
the Androsians. “know. more
than I do” about the status of
the contract.

Asked to respond’ to the
claim that local firms should be
awarded the contract, Mr
Bethel said: “They can’t han-
dle it.”

He claimed that another min-
istry awarded a contract to a
local firm on Andros several
weeks ago, but the project has
yet to get started.

“You want what will work for’
your money,” Mr Bethel said.

Tribune. Staff Reporter

NORTH Andros — One of
the most hotly contested seats
in the next general election
could be the constituency of
North Andros, The Tribune has
learned.

Its current representative,
Minister of Foreign Investment
Vinceitt. éet, continues to con-
trol sdbstantial support among
his iOrerardent PLP con-
stitueats., ~ ‘

Mr-Péet said yesterday that
he would: put his four-year
record in:North Andros up
against ithe previous 20 years
of représentation — and dared
any challenger to try to beat
him.) +i)

However, talking with The
Tribune,yesterday, some of his
die-hard PLP supporters in the
2002 election said Andros has
not moved forward to where
they think it should be. They
accused ‘Minister Peet of being
“out ‘of: touch” with his con-
stituents.

And according to Western
Air owner. Shandrice Wood-
side-Rolle, ‘who is seeking the
FNM(\candidacy for the area, it
is be¢ause of Mr Peet’s “lack
of inteyest” in Androsians that
she de¢ided to run.

onteste

“Even though this is my first
attempt in politics I feel that
North Androsians are craving
something different. That is
something that I am bringing
to the table by living here in
the constituency, and in addi-
tion to that I am a business
owner in this constituency.

“I am contributing to the
economy by introducing vari-
ous businesses, including West-
ern Air. So my contributions
to this constituency have
already been proven, and so I
am sure that once they can give
me a chance as their MP, they

can feel comfortable in know-. .

ing that I would be an even bet-
ter contributor to this con-
stituency,” she said.

Aside from Western Air, Mrs
Woodside-Rolle and her hus-
band Rex have many projects
currently underway, such as a
commercial development not
far from the airlines’ main hub,
which currently holds seven
10,000 square-foot commercial
buildings and is planned to
include a 44-room hotel. |

Mrs Woodside-Rolle said
that other than Western Air,
there is little investment in
North Andros.

“TI am trying to be as objec-

tive as I possibly can. And that

is One of the main reasons that

propelled me into politics —
because it seemed as if noth-
ing was happening in North
Andros. We tried our best to
make things better for North
Andros by putting our head-
quarters here. We feel that
maybe by putting our business
here then maybe we could
encourage other Androsians
who are living abroad to come
and invest here, but so far that
has not happened.”

However, when contacted

yesterday afternoon, Mr Peet
said he is currently considering
a number of private proposals
for resorts in the constituency —
a task he is ideally placed to
handle as minister of invest-
ments.

Mr Peet said his record
speaks for itself.

“I brought to North Andros
more than 25 contracts in four
years — more than the last 15
years combined. The previous *
government only brought about

five contracts,” he said.

The minister said he has
made education his top priority,
and that every settlement in
North Andros with a school has
been improved during his
tenure. Mr Peet pointed to

‘major upgrades at the Mastic
Point Primary School and the
construction of a pre-school in
this settlement; and upgrades
to the primary school in

Nicholls Town, where a new |

pre-school is almost complete.
The minister added that four

contracts have been awarded ©

for,Réd Bays, which include

those for a primary school and - |

a pre-school; and that there
have been five contracts award-
ed for the North Andros High
School — including those for a
cafeteria housing eight vendors,
a tuck shop, anda three-class-
room block.

He added that an additional
two contracts for this school
are to be awarded in the com-
ing weeks — one for a techni-
cal workshop building and

‘another for a four-classroom
block.

In addition to similar educa-
tional projects in Lowe Sound,
Mr Peet foreshadowed a con-

tract for a new sea wall to pro-’
tect that community from hur- -

ricane damage.

Andros may be ‘one of most hotly
d seats’ in next general election

Officials optimistic about tourism as hurricane season Bening”

a By ROYANNE FORBES-
DARVILLE

WITH meteorological offi-

cials predicting an active hurri-.

cane $eason this year, Minister
of Tourism Obie Wilchcombe
said heii is hoping room sales will
remail steady.

As ‘hoteliers in the oupital
report soaring room sales, Mr
Wilchcombe told The Tribune
that while he is concerned, he
remains confident that the
country.is. ‘prepared for any

The government has allocat-
‘ed an estimated $8 million for
the National Emergency Man-
agement: Agency in its
2006/2007 budget.

This as 17 named storms are
predicted to:form —.nine of
which are expected to become
hurricanes and five to strength-
en to category three or higher.

Mr Wilchcombe explained
that a comprehensive disaster
preparedness plan has been
designed for Grand Bahama,
which lost 1,000 of its 4,000-
room inventory following hur-

ricanes Frances and Jeanne in
2004.

He said the government is
working arduously to ensure
that Grand Bahama’s economy
is not compromised again.

“We are putting in place a
very dynamic marketing pro-
motional programme that will
give Grand Bahama that brand
name and we are going to brand
it to the point that Grand
Bahama would mean something
in the market place.”

So far for the year, more than
two million tourists have visited

presented by the

the Bahamas and the number is
expected to exceed the total for
2005, despite the impending
weather, Mr Wilchcombe said.

A total of 5,050,795 persons
visited the Bahamas in 2005 — a
one per cent increase over 2004.

Tourism officials say the bulk
of the growth in 2005 was not
unexpected, as they -had to work
very hard to maintain the coun-
try’s presence in the interna-

_ tional market.

They said that after two major
hurricanes last year, air arrivals
to New Providence. were up —
whereas. air arrivals were down
following storms in 2004.

Meanwhile, a few hoteliers
on New Providence and Par-
adise Island are reporting
exceédingly higher room sales
this year compared to the same
period in 2005.

Robert Sands, vice president
of administration and external
affairs for Cable Beach Resorts,
said bookings are up by more

than 10 per cent.

“T can tell you that first week
of (this month) we are way
ahead of last year in terms of
business,” he said. “By at least
15 per cent ahead of last year
for the first week of June.

“What in fact happens is if a

hurricane forms and it begins -

to head in the direction of the
Bahamas then that has an
impact on bookings before and
perhaps after the passing of the
particular hurricane, for the
remainder of the season,” Mr
Sands explained.

“With the approach of the
hurricane season, business does
not usually go very poor,” he
said. “It is impacted directly by
the path the storm in traveling
in — and that has been a tradi-
tional experience.”

In the event a hurricane does
make landfall, Mr Sands said
the resort has an extensive con-



attached to the AVENT

tingency plan in place.

manager of the British Colonial
Hilton said that his resort has
not seen any noticeable downfall
in room sales that can be attrib-
uted to the fear of hurricanes.

He explained that occupan-
cy is steady at 90 per cent, but
that the hardest time for a hur-
ricane to hit is in September — a
traditionally slow month.

“We have a hurricane plan
and we have begun to execute it
by ordering a large bulk of sup-
plies and we are ready to put it
in action.”

In the interim, however;.Mr ~

Wilchcombe said that there'is
comfort in knowing that, the
Bahamas’ tourism ns is
resilient.

“One of the things that we
can say is that the tourism
industry . . . rebounds quite eas-
ily, and inspite of all.the diffi-
culties we have been able to
enjoy a good number of arrivals
and yield from our invest-
ments.”

on charges relating to the pos-

Richard Thompson, 38 and

arraigned before magistrate

They were arraigned on the
charges of importation of dan-_

gerous drugs, namely cocaine,

It is alleged that the two men
committed the offences on Sun-
day June 6. They were report-

for its Athol Island develop-
ment.

Several maritime tour oper-
ators have voiced their con-
cerns over the reported devel-
opment of a golf course
because there may be grave
environmental impacts on
areas they frequently visit.

According to. Charlie Light-
bourn of Crystal Lady Cruises,

. deemed an area called the Sea

island, inalienable. He said
that despite best efforts to pro-

yesterday that they plan to fill

mission. He also said that he is
positive that the deal. will go
through, and that when it does

diately.

Sam Duncombe, spokes-
woman for the environmental
group ReEarth said that the

Renewed
flooding
strikes
Suriname

@ SURINAME
Paramaribo

SCHOOLS were closed and
homes were deluged Tuesday
after floodwaters from a swollen

river struck dozens of villages |

in Suriname just. weeks after
severe flooding left 22,000 peo-
ple homeless, officials said,
according to Associated Press.
The Suriname River rose
above its banks on Monday
after three days of heavy rains,

endangering villages that were’

battered by last month’s floods,
said Jerry Slijngaard, who heads
the Disaster Coordination Cen-
ter in the South American
nation. |

The water level along a
stretch of the river where peo-
ple from the Saamakka Maroon
tribe live in thatched-hut vil-
lages.had risen nearly 3 meters
(10 feet) since Monday, Slijn-
gaard said.

Two weeks ago officials said
river levels in the former Dutch
colony had dropped to normal
levels after torrential rains and
flooding left up to 22,000 home-
less in the country’s lowlands.

Slijngaard said flooding in
recent days has hampered the
distribution of aid to last mon-
th’s flood victims because air-
fields were submerged.

Perry Christie calls Ingraham’s
comments on Cuba ‘shameful’

@ By KARINHERIG) .
Tribune Staff Reporter

PRIME Minister Perry
Christie described Hubert
Ingraham’s behaviour regard-
ing the election of Cuba to the
Human
Rights Council as “shameful.”

Continuing with this year’s
budget debate, the prime min-
ister yesterday took the oppor-
tunity to speak out against

statement’s made by Mr Ingra-

ham after it was disclosed that
the Bahamas had voted in

favour of Cuba becoming'a’
member of the new human’

rights body. ;
Mr Ingraham last month
blasted the government’s deci-
sion to vote for Cuba — a coun-
try, he said, which in the view
of the FNM does not meet the
necessary standards in terms
of human rights practices.
The opposition leader par-

ticularly criticised the fact that _

the government did not imme-

an people the nature of its vote
at the UN.

He also said that while his
party wants to maintain good
relations with Cuba, it would
never risk the Bahamas’ “
critical” relationship with the
United States.

Mr Christie yesterday said
that it is his obligation and that
of his colleagues to govern the
country “in the way we deem
to be in the best interest of our
country.” » ;

“We don’t flip flop and take:
decisions that we believe are .
politically popular and popular -
with the Americans,” he said: - '

He emphasised that the US

was always very much of aware

of the Bahamas’ stance on
Cuba.

The prime minister said that
he discussed the country’s posi-
tion at several meetings with
US government representa-

‘tives, including the meeting

with Secretary of State Con-
doleezza Rice earlier this year.

on the behalf of the Bahamian
people I spoke honestly and
sincerely about our. relation-
ship such as it was with Cuba.

“There is doubt that my

frankness was appreciated on .

each of those occasions,” he
said. ,

Mr Christie said that there is
no question whatsoever
regarding the good relation-
ship between the US and the
Bahamas. ;

He pointed out that thou-
sands of Bahamians live in the
States, with many even serv-
ing in the US armed forces.

He added that he has always
spoken openly to US officials
about the fact that many
Bahamians benefit from health
care and education services
offered by Cuba. ;

“There is no secret about
what I do. I spoke before pub-
lic officials to the leaders of
the US government.

“T spoke openly and I spoke
correctly,” he said.

Shock announcement over OPBAT

IT WAS announced yesterday that US
Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld wants
to.end the Army’s participation in Operation
QPBAT, which not only protects the shores of

the Bahamas from smugglers of drugs and -

humans, but reduces the drug supply into
Florida.

The programme, which was started in 1982
and includes the US, Bahamas and Turks
Island, was supported by seven of the Army’s
Blackhawk helicopters and, of course, the
Army’s crew that goes with them. Mr Runis-
feld says they are needed for more important
duties elsewhere — particularly in the war
against terrorism. He has urged the US gov-
ernment to find another agency to step in and
fill the void.

It is only natural that the US Embassy in
Nassau would like to maintain OPBAT’s high
level of efficiency.

“Obviously the army is very capable and
has a tremendous record of reliability and
capability so it would be our preference that
the army continue to do that mission,” Dr
Brent Hardt, Deputy Chief of Mission at the
US Embassy in the Bahamas, told The Tri-
bune. “At this point, our support for OPBAT
is firm and strong and we don’t anticipate a cut
back in OPBAT’s capability to ensure the
effectiveness of the mission here.”

Dr Hardt also said that US Ambassador
John Rood is fully committed to OPBAT. “In
fact,” said Dr Hardt, “he is going to Wash-
ington later this month to reinforce the impor-
tance of OPBAT.”

Of course, the Bahamas’ vote on May 9
for Cuba to be a member of the UN Human
Rights Council, obviously does not sit well
with the United States. As Ambassador Rood

said in a letter to the press on May 22: “If the
United Nations is to be relevant and effec-
tive in promoting universal human rights, its
member nations must have the courage to
promote their own values, as reflected in the
Universal Declaration of Human Rights.”

The Ambassador said he knew that the
“people of the Bahamas hold these rights
dear, just as we in the United States do.” If this
is true, then when one reads the Universal
Declaration of Human Rights and relates it to
Cuba’s track record on human rights, it is
obvious that the Bahamas’ courage failed

-when it came time to promote its own values
on May 9.

It is also understood that the US was miffed
by Foreign Affairs Mitchell’s statement to the
House of Assembly on May 17 when, in
explaining why this country supported Cuba,
he said:

“No other country, unsolicited, has offered
the level of assistance to this country (the
Bahamas), assistance that is not of direct ben-
efit to the country offering the assistance.”
Mr Mitchell was speaking of Cuba.

This was a slap in the face to the United
States, a country that has so faithfully sup-
ported, encouraged and promoted the interests
of the Bahamas for so many years. Not only are
American tax dollars used to carry out the
many programmes organised for the benefit of
Bahamians, but also the generosity,of private
organisations to this country has no parallel.

And so these acts and words are the mon-
keys that the Ambassador will have on his
back when he goes to bat for the OPBAT
mission in Washington. What our government
ministers have said and done can only make
his efforts more difficult.

The criticism of Raynard Rigby

PLP Chairman Raynard Rigby never ceas-
es to amuse us.

In criticising Opposition Leader Hubert
Ingraham for condemning government’s deci-
sion to lift the moratorium on public service
hiring by taking 1,200 out-of-job Bahamians
on the already overburdened public payroll
when teachers are crying for parity in pay
with other professionals, Mr Rigby said: .

“We are not wasting money, we are
employing 1,200 people who don’t have a job,
who are looking for a job and who have the
basic skills we need in the public service.”

Mr Rigby attended the PLP’s mini-con-
vention when Public Service Minister Fred
Mitchell stated government’s intention to cre-
ate these jobs within the next year. He heard
what Mr Mitchell said. He also had the oppor-
tunity to read Mr Mitchell’s statement in The
Tribune, yet he would make a public state-
ment claiming that the recruits will in fact
have the “basic skills”. Does Mr Rigby know
something more than Mr Mitchell about these
potential recruits? Now this is what Mr
Mitchell told PLP delegates from a public plat-

form: “The idea will be that those people who
do not have the basic qualifications, which is
the minimum of five BJCs, will be able to
come onto the service, receive training with an
agreement to upgrade their training, so that
they can be promoted in the service and not
use the lack of qualifications against them.”

Mr Rigby said it would not be accurate to
say that government was “wasting money” to
employ them “knowing obviously why they
are employing these persons, what role these
persons will play in the public service, and
being satisfied of the need for those people to
come into employment at this time.”

Well, as their need for employment is not
so obvious to the public, and Mr Rigby and
Mz Mitchell are at odds as to the calibre of
employees they are recruiting, maybe Mr Rig-
by would enlighten us to what he calls the
“obvious.”

The only reason we guess they are needed
“at this time” is that an election is on the hori-
zon, and although they might not have five
BJC’s, they are obviously smart enough to mark
their X in the correct box on election day.

THE TRIBUNE .

Reviewing
legal issues

EDITOR, The Tribune

I read with interest Larry
Smith’s Tough Call article of
May 24, 2006, reviewing some
of the issues arising out of the
11 Financial Laws introduced
in December, 2000.

It also touches on the status
of the Constitutional Action

filed in December 2001 by Mau-

rice Glinton and myself in
response to those issues. The
Bahamas Bar Association inter-
venes in that law suit.
Congratulations to Mr. Smith
who once again presented
opposing view points on an
important subject. There was
enough material there to gen-
erate some questions and public
concerns.
- One reservation however, is
that Tough Call’s readers may
have been left with the impres-

sion that the only substantive .

issue, is lawyer-client privilege:
a concern of only lawyers’and
their clients.

This is not the case. At the
risk of over-simplifying, I will
attempt to summarize some
issues. the Plaintiffs allege arise
out of the challenged package
of legislation.

The Constitutional case is
about this country. As citizens
we allege that we have a right to
expect our government of the
day, whoever it may be, to act in
accordance with the Constitu-
tion.

The Constitutional case. asks
the Court to determine whether
the government has an obliga-
tion to defend the sovereignty
of this jurisdiction, to pass laws
consistent with the Constitu-
tion, and in the interest of the
people of the Bahamas, in the
sense that was the actuating
interest for their passage.

It asks the Court to deter-
mine, whether the Constitution
protects the citizens’ funda-
mental rights as we understand

them, or-whether those rights,

cede to the executive’s exercise
of power as set out in the Finan-
cial Laws.

1. Do the laws violate the fun-
damental rights provisions of
the Constitution such as:

e The presumption of inno-
cence

e The right of freedom from
unwarranted search

¢ The right to confidentiality
regarding private communica-
tions

° The right not to be unjustly
deprived of property?

2. Do the Financial Laws
deprive a client of the protec-
tion of lawyer-client privilege?

3. Should attorneys be
required by the Financial Laws
to report on their clients with
or without the consent of the
client? ,

4. Do the Financial Laws put

lawyers) as officers of the
Supreme Court, in a position of
conflict, between the duty and
obligations which the laws cre-
ate for them, and the client’s
right to confidentiality of his
information?

5. The Hawkesbill Creek
Agreement has not been
amended or repealed. Do the
Financial Laws violate the rights
of the Ist Plaintiff (and other
attorneys licenced by the Port
Authority of Grand Bahama)
as Licencee under the Hawks-
bill Creek Agreement?

6. Do the provisions of the
Financial Laws circumvent the
powers of the Public Service
Commission?

7. Can the Financial Intelli-
gence Unit (FIU) defeat a per-
son’s right to trial by an inde-
pendent and impartial court?

8. Is the FIU given powers
and immunities reserved for the
Supreme Court and its judges
alone and therefore ultra vires
the Constitution?

9. Is the FIU ultra vires the.

Constitution because it purports
to usurp Parliament’s legisla-
tive function of determining
what the law should be?

10. Does the Central Bank of
the Bahamas Act (CBBA)
attempt to deny the fundamen-
tal right of a person to the pre-
sumption of innocence until
proven guilty by an impartial
court?

11. Does the CBBA defeat a
person’s right to protection
against the arbitrary and com-
pulsory deprivation of property
without due process of law?

12. Is the Banks and Trust
Companies Regulation Act
(BTCRA) ultra vires when it
purports to give the Governor
of the Central Bank, and a
Magistrate, powers to exercise a
discretion reserved for judges
in the higher judiciary, which
affect fundamental rights?

13. Does the BTCRA cir-
cumvent the constitutional sep-
aration of powers by virtue of
the judicial power purported to
be vested in the Governor of
the Central Bank?.

14. Do the Financial Laws by
designating the Plaintiffs (and
other lawyers) as “Financial
Institutions” purport to regu-
late and redefine the Plaintiffs’
duties and functions as Officers
of the Court , and Counsel and
Attorneys of the Supreme
Court?

15. Do the Financial Laws
thereby defeat the role of the
Plaintiffs as officers of the court
and thereby also defeat the con-
stitutional separation of pow-
ers?

Can the reasons for which the
legislation was passed, justify
the alleged erosion or abroga-
tion of fundamental rights set
out in the Financial Laws?

The Financial Laws have
been, and will be supplemented
by “guidelines” passed on to
“Financial Institutions” through
the Compliance Commission of
The Bahamas, from the FATF,
the financial arm of the OECD.
The OECD is an overseas orga-
nization representing the devel-
oped countries. The guidelines

are not laws or regulations.
passed by our Parliament, but in’
practice set standards and pro-
cedures by which “compliance”
is to be measured. These can
be a moving goal-post. The
Bahamas Compliance Commis-,;
sion reports to the FATF and/or
the Caribbean FATF. +3

This situation is alluded to in;
the interview of Mr. James
Smith, Minister of State for
Finance, in The Tribune of May::
30, 2006. Minister Smith;
referred to “regulatory stan-
dards ..... constantly evolving.”
Minister Smith further com,
mented on the OECD’s latest
report on “compliance” issues,
as follows: “It’s been an’arguz
ment that has been made in the
Bahamas for some time, that
we have gone ‘way beyond’ the
OECD countries, which is why
it is so important to insist on a
level playing field.”

If our Government is using
that argument against the
OECD, why is it vigorously
defending this Constitutional
Action, which likewise seeks to
preserve for our citizens, and.
persons in this jurisdiction, the
level playing field on funda-
mental human rights? And at
an enormous cost, first to the
taxpayers of this country, and
also the Plaintiffs and the few
citizens who have provided sups:
port. te

Elsewhere in the Common-
wealth, similar financial. laws
have been challenged: laws
which likewise purported to co-'
opt lawyers to aid in enforcing’
the laws through their legal
practices. Those challenges have
been successful, and the laws;
declared unconstitutional wher¢!
they violated fundamental}:
human rights. Are. we in thi)
part of the Commonwealths
somehow less human, and
deserving of less rights? ey

The Constitution grants citi”
zens, and others in the
Bahamas, the right to.a pre;
sumption of innocence, a fair
trial by an independent court,
protection of person and prop;
erty from unwarranted searche§
and seizures, and a right to give
and receive information relat;
ing to his private affairs in cont
fidence. 1

We are alleging that the
financial laws would deny thos
constitutional rights in certain
instances. '

The Constitution sets out i
system of checks and balances
against the executive’s misust
of power. Do the Financial
Laws represent a misuse off
power, and will the Constitu-
tion afford protection? if

The over-riding question,
however is whether we are able
and willing to preserve a way

nicqieig. ape,
of life: whether we have suffi-
cient moral constitution to pré-
serve our legal Constitution. »

Or whether we are just simple
occupants of the Islands in
Stream ( but less and less own-
ers of the land we occupy),
flowing to the dictates of the
strongest current of the day, in
the naive belief that the quality
of life we have until now
enjoyed, will somehow be pre-
served for us, without struggle
or sacrifice on our part. i

Minister
speaks at
opening

IT is imperative that every cit-
izen feel the import of tourism,
Minister of Tourism Obie Wilch-
combe stressed at the opening of
the Small Island Developing
States (SIDS) conference.

He told conference delegates
that each of the small island
developing countries represent-
ed must commission an audit of
the capacity of their resources to
create linkages that could place
wealth in the hands of people.

“Billions of dollars of invest-
ments have given us the impetus
for economic growth. Our chal-
lenge now is to match this growth
with economic 'and social devel-
opment of people.

“Both are imperatives if we are
to complete this march of social
and economic independence,” he
said.

Walkine on
environment

Director General of Tourism
Vernice Walkine stressed the
importance of ensuring that the
environment is maintained in
“good working order.”

In an interview with The Tri-
bune, Ms Walkine said there is a
need to ensure that natural
resources such as the beaches and
the ocean “are able to outlive us”.

“In the absence of other major
industries, for a lot of these
Caribbean countries, we have to
depend on our natural environ-
ment in order to allow tourism to
prosper and to grow.

“If an ocean gets destroyed,
how do you replace it? It
becomes a fundamental question
of how seriously do we take our
responsibility to ensure that the
environment we are blessed with
today is here tomorrow - so that
the next generation has the
opportunity to get the same ben-
efit from it,” Ms Walkine said.

ECONOMIC leaks in small island states need
to be reduced by finding linkages with other
industries in the local economy, said Secretary
General of the World Tourism Organisation
Francesco Frangialli.

Yesterday, Mr Frangialli addressed delegates
during the opening ceremony of the Small Island
Developing States (SIDS) conference, which is
being held in the capital under the theme: "Max-
imising economic benefits and sustaining tourism
in development."

One of the conference’s objectives is to identify
and discuss economic, environmental, social and
other relevant factors that support economic
resilience-building in the tourism sector of small
island nations. ‘

Mr Frangialli told delegates on Wednesday
that economic leakages are common in small
island states.

He identified “the need to import a relatively
high proportion of the inputs required by hotels,
transport, and other tourism companies, along
with repatriation of benefits of foreign tourism
companies operating in SIDS, management fees
of foreign hotel operators, and employment of
expatriate staff” as among the main generators of
leakages.

"These need to be reduced through finding
linkages with other industries in the local econ-
omy whenever possible, but also by imagining
and putting in place innovative development and
management models in the tourism sector itself,”
added Mr Frangialli.

In spite of several crises, he pointed out that
international tourist arrivals worldwide beat all
expectations last year, exceeding 800 million.

In 2005, the tourism industry faced such crises
as terrorism, natural disasters, increases in oil
prices and health scares.

However, Mr Frangialli pointed out that these

tests showed that the industry has resilience and’

a capacity to recover.

Minister of Tourism Obie Wilchcombe, in the
keynote address, asked the question: “What is the
goal” of tourism?

He went on to explain that the ultimate goal is
to enrich the lives of the country's citizens.

“One must think beyond numbers and adopt
the triple bottom line approach of examining:
economic, socio-cultural, and environmental
aspects,” Mr Wilchcombe said.

"Gone are the days when we can pat ourselves
on the back when we reach five million visitors -
because unless the five million contribute to. the
quality of our people, it is all for naught," he
said.

‘Over the next three days, delegates will discuss
issues pertaining to the tourism industry, includ-
ing:

e Crime and unrest: a threat to tourism
resilience

e The role of private sector associations in
tourism resilience building ’

e The role of local and regional airlines in
building tourism resilience.

PM mentions proposed plan to alleviate
the present dilemma in Grand Bahama

PRIME Minister Christie in

the house yesterday mentioned

the government’s proposed
plan to alleviate Grand
Bahama’s present economic
dilemma, which he said
totalled more than $4 billion
dollars.

_ Minister of Tourism Obie
Wilchcombe confirmed Mr
Christie’s plans in an interview
yesterday.

He said that the government.
is focused on finding new oper- :

ators for the soon-to-close Isle
of Capri and the Closed Royal
Oasis Resort. He also said a
part of the government's plan
is to ‘Brand’ Grand Bahama
to make it a viable destination.

“The truth is we have com-
pleted our negotiations with
new owners of the Royal Oasis
and we are now completing

negotiations with new opera-
tors of the casino for the Isle of
Capri in Lucaya and that will
soon be announced,” said Mr
Wilchcombe.

“We have an agreement in

principle and now they'll begin
to work toward trying to
finalise an agreement that
allows us to move forward with
a new operator for the casino
in Freeport.”

Apert who sug-
gests that the

Bahamian economy’s perfor-
mance over the last four ycai
was “unprecedented’ in Our his-
tory is simply not telling the
truth

The truth 1s that the best
four-year fun Oui economy Nad
in more than 20 years occurred
between 1996 and 1999. in that
stretch, the econoiy giew on
average and in real terms by
five per cent, peaking in 1998
at 6.8 per cent.

As a result; some $1.1 billion
was added to our national
inconie. ‘This growth has not
been equalled in any four-year
period since

For instance, Ove the past
four years the average growth

rate of the economy, in real

terms, was 2.5 per cent, only
half of what it was between
1996. and 1999

This unprecedented growth

14.5 per cenit to 7.8 per cent.

Only one other four-year
period produced a more dra-
mou decline u iiciploy yiliCilt
atid that was the period 199z to
1995 when the unemployineiit
rate decreased from 14.8 per
cent wo 10.9 per cent.

Such decreases in joblessness
were not observed in any com-
parable periods before or since.
For caatuple, over the last four
years. unemployment actually
rose trom 9.1 per cent to 10.2
pei cent: While the next mea-
sure of the jobless rate is likely
to show a decrease. it is unlike
ly to compare to what took
place between 1992 and 1995
or 1996 and 1999.

tn addition to the dramatic
decline in unemployment, the
1996 to 1999 economic boom
also led to an unpressive surge
in personal as well as household
incomes. a historic rise in per
capita income, a 20 per cent
reduction in the number of
households at the lowest income
bracket with a coinparable tise
in Nouseholds in the highest
income bracket; the largest pub-
lic purchase of ownership in the
Bahamian economy ever, an

These investments were good

success is one of the single
greatest reasons that other
international investors were and

making difficult and unpopular
decisions.
That is what happened

‘between 1992 and 2002 when

the Ingraham administration
made many difficult and unpop-
ular decisions. Approving Sol
Kerzner, the South African bil-
lionaire, to invest in the Atlantis
project was a controversial deci-
sion at the time.

One would not know from
the glowing praises heaped on
Sol Kerzner by the present
administration that, while in
opposition, it treated the Kerzn-
er investment with disdain and
even threatened to undo it.

Privatising the government
hotels was a controversial deci-
sion. The then government was
accused of giving those proper-
ties away. Closing the govern-
ment-owned Lucayan Beach
Hotel in Freeport to make way
for a new hotel was an unpopu-
lar decision.

Grand Bahama was already
hurting economically and clos-
ing down the Lucayan Beach,
as run down and profitless as it
was, was thought by many,





356-6967, 356-6964 %:

FNMs and PLPs alike, to be
economic suicide for the island.
Approving Capo for the â„¢
Bimini Bay project was a con-
troversial decision. Approving a
casino licence for Emerald Bay
in Exuma was controversial.
Repealing the Immovable Prop-
erty Act was controversial.
Approving more investment
dollars than the size of the
whole economy of The
Bahamas was controversial with
the then opposition chanting
that Ingraham and them were
“selling the country out”.
Great controversy surround-

.ed the many changes to the reg-

ulatory regime of the financial
services sector of The Bahamas,
said by the opposition to be a
rush to judgment, unconstitu-
tional and pandering to foreign
powers.

Fast forward these contro- |
versial decisions today and they :
are the bedrock of what is
enabling The Bahamas to
thrive in a better performing *
global economy. These deci-
sions have generated thousands
upon thousands of jobs, multi-
ple of. millions of dollars in
local business profits and a sure
footing for the Bahamian econ- ;
omy for years and years to
come.

Had they not been made, our
nation, both economically and \-
socially, would be in terrible
shape. Even the controversial
changes to the financial services
sector are now regarded as the
reason The Bahamas is a “well-
regulated, blue chip” offshore

‘ centre.

Sometimes, leadership has
nothing to lean on but the glory
of its vision, the wisdom of its
insight and the conviction of its
values. This is what happened
between 1992 and 2002 and The
Bahamas continues to reap
great rewards from the leader-
ship of that period and is likely
to do so for decades to come.

THOUGHT FOR THE
WEEK

\ / ery often leadership
must be content with

knowing how many people ben-
efit from its decision as opposed
to how many will like it.

A GOVERNMENT:
APPOINTED panel said
Tuesday that Jamaica’s main
supplier of cement was at
fault for distributing roughly
550'tons (500 metric tons) of
sub-standard product earli-

er this year, according to.

Associated Press.
The 15-member team’s
report said that.a lack of
internal quality control by
management at Caribbean
Cement:Company Limited

led to the distribution of the ©

faulty cement, which it said
was a major breach of
Jamaica’s Standards Act.
The panel also called for a
comprehensive review at the
Bureau of Standards of
Jamaica which certified the
inferior cement. It said the
government bureau did not
have a.suitable process or

appropriate equipment to

assess the product.

The report was released
some two months after being
appointed by industry and
commerce minister Phillip
Paulwell to investigate pro-
duction . standards © at
Caribbean Cement ‘Compa:
ny Limited.

Several major construc-
tion projects have been
delayed by the shortage,
which began in February
when the company recalled
550 ‘tons (500 metric tons)
of cement.

Bahamas Police Force, there
have been about 1,500 traffic
accidents in New Providence

. for the year.

That figure, the official said,
only includes accidents that the
traffic department has dealt

_with personally, and although

it-does represent the majority
of traffic accidents, there are
still some. cases that do not
make it as far as the depart-
ment.

Local police stations some-
times record traffic accidents
that occur in their areas, and
most times. in those cases, the
traffic division does not record
these accidents.

Two days ago, the double
traffic fatality which, took the
lives of two Long Island sisters,
Santura and Brigetta Adder-
ley, brought the total traffic
accident death toll up to 13 for
the year, prompting traffic offi-
cials to caution: motorists to be
extra careful during the rainy
period.

One irate driver complained

of the apparent nonchalance
and total disregard for safety
some drivers demonstrate on
the road, saying: “These peo-
ple are getting more and more
reckless.”

“They are not only poten-

tially putting their lives in dan-
ger but also the persons driving
next to them,” the motorist said.

he said. ;

The: US: does, not ignore the
fact that OPBAT has been very
successful in stopping and pre-
venting the flow of drugs
through the Bahamas and into
Florida.

Since 2000, the programme
has resulted in seizure of more
than 25 tons of cocaine, 82 tons
of marijuana and the arrests of
786 people, according to DEA
statistics from April.

However, these numbers are
not as impressive as those dur-
ing the drug boom days of the
1980s when up to 90-per cent
of the cocaine smuggled into
the US from Latin America
came into Florida through the

Bahamas and Caribbean. ui

This fact has led some US law’
makers to call for cuts in

the’ modern day low numbers ‘.

THE TRIBUNE

Bah

THE Swiss Federal Prosecu-
tor’s Office is facing a lawsuit
after failing to prove allegations
that the founder of a now-
defunct Muslim firm was send-
ing al-Qaeda money to the
Bahamas through Malta and
Switzerland.

According to the Swiss news
website www.swissinfo.org,
Youssef Nada the 75-year-old
founder and former managing
director of Nada Management,
formerly known as al-Taqwa,
said: he was suing. because of
financial losses incurred result-
ing from a three-and-a-half year
Swiss investigation that col-
lapsed a year ago.

Switzerland was forced to
drop the case against top offi-
cials of the company on July 1,
2005 because they, said authori-
ties in the Bahamas failed to





provide essential bank records
by a court deadline.

Claude Nicati, the deputy
Swiss federal prosecutor,
claimed the Bahamas “never

gave a useable response” to

requests for judicial assistance
in relation to the case involv-
ing Nada Management Organi-
sation, which had controlled
Bank Al Taqwa, a former
Bahamian bank that went into
voluntary liquidation in early
2001.

Swiss investigators said the
Bahamian bank’s account
records were pivotal to their
case. No evidence has been pro-
vided by anyone to back up.the.
claims against Bank Al Taqwa
and its affiliates since they first
surfaced in 2001.

The Swiss allegations remain
unproved, and it is possible that

the prosecutors were trying to
create a diversion from their
own difficulties by attributing
blame for the case’s collapse
elsewhere.

Investigation

The Swiss authorities began
investigating the company
shortly after the September 11,
2001 attacks on Washington and
New York. The US government
says al-Taqwa helped fund
Osama bin Laden’s terror net-
work.

The company has been list-

ed by the United States since

late 2001 as an organisation
accused of helping fund terror-
ism.

After the publication of the
list in 2001, police raided the

THE Bahamas was criticised
by the US Department of State
in its 2006 annual report on
human trafficking. ,

The report listed the

ing victims in need of assis-
tance,” the report said.

The Tribune took to the
streets on Tuesday to ask the
‘public about their views on
human trafficking in the
Bahamas.

Is human trafficking really a
: concern in the Bahamas?

‘One person agreed that

human per is “a big con-

‘ cern”
“It ‘has been going on for
years “it is also-common

knowledge unas this is going .

on,” he said. :

“The Pahanias is only so
lange,” said another. “Our soci-
ety can’t take the overload. The
persons responsible need to be
caught. e

owever, Tyrone Albury
pdinted out that “America has-
n’t been successful in stopping
the Mexicans from being traf-
ficked across its borders.”

What can we do?” he asked.

“The border patrol needs to
be reinforced” said Bradley
Brown “I’ve lived on the ocean
mbst of my life and I’ve seen
evidence of human trafficking.”



How does Human Trafficking
affect us as a country?

“Most illegal persons don’t
contribute to our society. Our
social services system can’t han-
dle the extra added pressure,”
said a local barber “We end up
paying for them. tts 5 seu

One eoiaientator said that

the effects of human trafficking
“are showing in medical expens-
es every year. Bahamians need
to stand up on the issue.”
“Soon we'll have to-pay to
send our children to public
schools. The cost of learning is
going up because of human traf-
ficking,” added Sedric Reckley.
“We need to enforce the inspec-
tion of vessels in our waters.”

What can the Bahamas.do to
reduce or stop human traffick-
ing?

Joycelyn McPhee said: “The

- government is doing its best, but

I believe we need outside help.
Maybe: we need to come. to an
agreement with nearby coun-
tries to help patrol the borders.

“The money people spend to
come here illegally can be used
to help their countries,” she said.

“Human trafficking.can be

stopped with regular checks of ,

our borders” said a business man.
“If we increase our border patrols,
we won’t have the problem.”

A Bay Street taxi driver com-
mented: “Someone needs to be
held accountable for this. If not
the traffickers, the countries of
the persons being trafficked.

“Tf the traffickers are caught
before they get in our waters,
we won’t have that problem.”

The proposed Act, she said,

During the meeting, one com-

“Tf we are responsible for
what our children up to 18

Concerns were also raised

- about the large number of

young children loitering at Port

without adult supervision.

“The police do nothing about
this,” complained one person.

Rev Dr Emmette Weir also
expressed concerns about the
number of young persons taking
up late-night jobs — particularly
on school nights.

Rev Weir said there should |

be stiff penalties to employers

who take on young children at

that no child shall be employed

may be detrimental to his

Christie anger at US senator visit

know if certain government
ministers had abdicated their
responsibilities for governing,
as he had seen news coverage of
Iowa Senator Tom Harkin dis-
cussing matters related to
defence, education, and agri-
culture from the office of the
opposition leader.

In a somewhat anticipatory

manner, Mr Christie jumped on -
the matter and proceeded to. .
chastise Mr.Ingraham over the

way he “embarrassingly” parad-
ed the visiting Senator Detore
the media.

Speaking of Senator Harkin’ s
meeting with Mr Ingraham,
Minister Christie said: “When

he went to the office of the
leader of the opposition, he met

the press. He was considerably .

embarrassed.”
Senator Harkin, Primé Min-
ister Christie continued, “did

not intend, nor did he think it

appropriate to. participate in
Bahamian affairs in the way it
happened in the office of the
leader of the opposition.”

Although he acknowledged
that Senator Harkin has resided in
Mr Ingraham’s constituency of
North Abaco for some 37 years,
Mr Christie said that Mr Harkin
had come to see the Prime Min-
ister for discussions, and because
their meeting was a working
meeting, Mr Christie said, “I did
not choose to publicise.”

Mr Christie’s commen
immediately drew fire from the
floor, as opposition membéfs
wanted to know why Mr
Christie “publicised” othiér
diplomatic and courtesy visits
with foreign dignitaries, yet te
chose not to publicise his meet-
ing with the lowa Senator whio,
has led efforts in his home state
to improve education, health
care, and agriculture. Ee

During his courtesy call with
the former prime minister, Sen-
ator Harkin fielded questions
from the media on US immi-
gration policies, US’s involy¢-
ment in Iraq; education, ad
agriculture. %e

A veteran reporter who was
present at Senator Harkin’s yis-
it said that he did not get ithe
impression that the Senator was
embarrassed,

According to Jerome Sawyer,
“Mr Harkin answered questions
freely and openly, and he was
well in his right to decline

‘ answering questions.”

Dr Brent Hardt, Deputy
Chief of Mission at the Amerti-
can Embassy, said, whereas
Senator Harkin was not aware
that the media would have been
present for the meeting with the
leader of the opposition, he was
happy to answer questions put
to him.

Dr Hardt also said that'a mes-
sage was conveyed to the Prime
Minister from Senator Harkin
to inform him that the media
was present at his and Mr Ingra-
ham’s meeting. So the con-
veyance, according to Dr Hardt,
was done out of professidnal
courtesy to the Prime Minister,
as Senator Harkin did not want
to give the impression that he
was trying to make a political,
statement for or against one
political party, particularly dur-
ing this political season.

As to the media presence at
the meeting, however, Dr Hardt
said that Senator Hardt was
“surprised, not embarrassed.”

Multiculturalism in the Bahamas

HE increasingly large
: numbers of so-called
“illegal immigrants” in this
country and the reaction of
most Bahamians is a perennial
subject of discussion among
almost all of the residents of
these islands.

Sigmund Freud (1856-1939)
is reported as saying: “Intoler-

ly enough, exhibited more
strongly against small differ-

ences than fundamental ones.”

Almost all developed soci-
eties are multicultural. They are
multicultural in the sense that
their members pursue different
conceptions of the good life and

assign different meanings and

significance to human activities
and relations. This cultural
diversity is a product of several
factors, including the rise of
moral individualism and a
decline in the traditional moral
consensus, ethnic and religious

ent questions and require dif-
ferent responses. We will con-
centrate here on immigrants
and look at what claims they
and the receiving society may
rightly make on each other and
how best these may be recon-
ciled.

[ nniction is, of course,
only one source of cultur-
al diversity, and we should not
conclude that society was cul-
turally homogeneous before sig-
nificant immigration began.
Moreover, the diversity intro-
duced by immigrants — who
themselves belong to a range of
religious and ethnic groups.— is
not necessarily deeper or more
extensive than that which
already exists within the
Bahamian society. This society
includes many individuals and
groups who take quite differ-
ent views from the majority on
such issues as homosexuality,

. cohabitation, the place of reli-

gion in public life, family disci-
pline and the respect for the
law. In most of these areas,
immigrants tend to share the
views of the majority.

Most persons hold that immi- .

grants should they wish to be
accepted as full citizens, should
merge into the national culture
and.express exclusive loyalty to
their country of settlement. If
they choose to hold on to their
culture and retain close ties with
their country of origin, they
should not complain if the rest
of society refuses to identify
with them and treat them
unequally.

Such aggressive assimilation
is now considered a minority
view. The more common opin-
ion is a set of views that we
might call integrationism. This
view stresses the importance of
a common culture but accepts a
two-way process, with the host
country adapting to some extent
to newcomers. Many integra-
tionists also appreciate that
immigrants might wish to,
indeed have a right to, retain
parts of their cultural identity,
and that integration could be
minimal, limited mainly to soci-
ety’s common institutions. But if
integration of immigrants is a
vital national goal, it is not quite
clear how one can exempt some
areas of life from its demands.
There are those who might
think that economic and polit-
ical integration is enough, oth-
ers argue that society cannot be
cohesive unless integration is
extended to the moral, social
and cultural areas of life as well,
and that allowing immigrants
to integrate partially is to secure
for them privileges over other
members of society. This view
appears to many observers as
rather ad hoc and inconsistent.

There is a third approach,
which stresses the concept of
equal citizenship. In this view, a



SHIFT _the future

political community is a volun-
tary association of free and
equal citizens held together by
principles of justice’as embod-
ied in the structure of public
authority and a system of rights
and obligations. So long as
immigrants accept these princi-
ples — becoming “constitutional
patriots” — nothing more is
required of them. This is a vital
concept but we must examine
this view very closely.

hile such a view,
* without close exam-

‘ination, has much to offer. The
view with its avoidance of the -

ideologically loaded language
of integration and assimilation,
it is inadequate in important
respects. Members of a political
community share common
interests and bonds, and make
claims and entertain expecta-

tions of each other that they do ©

not in relation to outsiders.
Their relations with each other
are bounded and mediated by
their membership of a single

‘community. Citizenship is not

only a matter of rights and
obligations, but involves identi-



A society is nota

together in the
same geographic
area and are only
contingently relat-
ed to each other

fying with the political commu-
nity, seeing it as one’s own,
accepting responsibility for it
and promoting its well-being.
In welfare states, citizenship
also means a willingness to
share one’s resources with fel-
low citizens: an obligation to

ensure that others enjoy the ©
basic conditions of a decent life. .:

Instead of.focusing on how
immigrants can be assimilated

or integrated, we should ask ©

how they can become equal cit-

izens bound to the rest by those -

ties of common belonging. This
obviously requires some form

‘of integration in the sense that

immigrants should share certain
of society’s basic norms and val-
ues. However, integration and
assimilation are the means, not
the end, of that common
belonging. :
A society is not a random
collection of individuals who

happen to live together in the.

same geographic area and are
only contingently related to
each other. It represents an
intricate and complex way of
life built up through struggles
and sacrifices over several gen-
erations. Since their identities,
lives and personal histories are
closely bound up with it, people
rightly feel possessive and pro-
tective about their society. They
want to be reassured that immi-
grants, who come here by
choice, value their membership

of it, and understand and.

respect its way of life. Ordinary

cessful new applicants to join
them in good faith, observe
their norms and do nothing to
undermine them. This applies
even mote So in the case of
political societies, which have
long —established historical
identities and which their mem-
bers regard as their home.

sk society in which
immigrants have come
to settle is not only a cherished
home to its members, it is also
their own and their children’s
future home, and calls for a
moral and emotional commit-
ment. Immigrants should there-
fore identify themselves with: it,
make it their own and accept
the responsibilities and obliga-
tions that this entails. This does
not mean that they should sev-
er their ties with their country of
origin, any more than a mar-
riage requires the spouses to
disown or distance themselves
from their. parental ties. Such a
demand is unfair and unneces-
sary. What can be demanded of
immigrants is that they should

‘see their new country as their

home,‘whatever other homes
they might have. It should mean
something to them, have an
intrinsic value and not just an
instrumental one — as a place
to make money or escape per-
secution — and they should give
reasonable evidence of their
commitment to it. Such a com-
mitment establishes their good
faith, qualifies them for full
membership and entitles them
to make such demands on the
rest of society as their process of

resettlement requires.

No society can expect to
remain the same when it admits
new members, especially when

their number is fairly large.

Every society redefines itself in
response to the emergence of
new generations of young men
and women who bring with them |
new ideas, aspirations, forms.of
self-understanding and modes
of behaviour. Immigrants pre-
sent society with a similar chal-
lenge, compounded by the fact
that many of them arrive'as
adults. with only limited room
for remoulding. Their demands
carry moral weight and are like-
ly to receive a more favourable
response if they have made a full
commitment to.society. ~
Just as immigrants need’ to
commit themselves to the
receiving society, society must
of course make a commitment
to them. Immigrants are new at
this, and liable to much misun-
derstanding and negative
stereotyping. They need time -
to acquire the necessary cultur-
al competence, and in the
meantime they lack a clear and
coherent voice. Being outsiders,
they will often, at least initially,
experience suspicion and even
hostility. They are also likely to
be discriminated against in sig-
nificant areas of life. They may
suffer from disadvantages
Resulting from poverty, lack
of language, the trauma of tran-—
sition, the confusion‘and worry
about how to adjust to the new

society, anxiety about their chil-

dren, mismatch between their
aspirations and the reality about
their new life and much more.
The wider society needs to ease
their transition and help them .to
feel and become its full mem-
bers. :

Former administrator is

touted as FNM candidate

@ By Tribune Staff Writer

A GROUP of keen FNM
supporters in South Abaco is
trying to enlist the island’s for-
mer administrator as the par-
ty’s general election candidate.

The approach to Everette
Hart follows an attempt by ex-
PLP stalwart Mr Edison Key to
get the official nomination.

Sources told The Tribune yes-

‘ terday that “a significant num-
ber” of FNMs are strongly
opposed to Mr Key becoming
the party’s representative.

And they fear his. involve-
ment in the selection process
will split the party in the run-up
to the election, which has to be
called before May next year. °

Mr Hart, who was extremely
popular as Abaco administrator
from 1996 onwards, retired from
government service in March.



lM EVERETTE Hart

When first approached some
weeks ago, Mr Hart reportedly
said he was not prepared to get
involved. But since then, his
admirers have said he has
shown “encouraging signs” of
being interested in running.

“He is a very capable and hon-
est man who did a splendid job
when he was administrator

here,” one source said yesterday.

“He was very effective, very
straight and very honest. He is a
man who is physically. short in
stature but he stands very tall
indeed.”

Lobbying for Mr Hart’s
involvement began after Mr
Key - who defected from the
PLP two years ago - sent a letter
to the party expressing interest
in running for South Abaco.

As a white Bahamian, he is
seen by some in the FNM lead-

ership as a strong contender for

this particular seat.

However, opponents of Mr
Key’s candidature made it clear
yesterday that he was “inappro-
priate” for many reasons, having

allegedly made “many enemies”

in the area during his PLP days.

They.said many keen FNMs
would not register if they thought
he was going to run. This, they

are pleased to announce that

claimed, could put the seat in jeop-
ardy, as the party majority has tra-
ditionally been narrow.

“While we’re desperate to get
rid of the PLP government, we
would not feel comfortable about
voting for Edison Key,” said one
islander. ,

“The problem now is that

we're getting close to decision

day and we have not lined up a
realistic alternative. In the last

few days, the name of Everette.

Hart has come up because he is
known to be a very fair man.
“He was sent to Abaco as
administrator by then Prime Min-
ister Hubert Ingraham. Although
Mr Hart was reputed to be'a PLP
supporter at the time, Mr Ingra-
ham felt he would nonetheless
do a good job.— and he did.
“He is probably the best
administrator we have had in
Abaco. Even people at Man 0’

‘War Cay, who would tradition-

ally favour a white candidate, are
strongly behind Mr Hart.”

Even though some in the FNM
want to attract more white can-
didates, Mr Key’s foes believe he
will put off more voters than he
will attract.

One party member said: “I am
afraid if he gets involved, we may
lose by default. We have always

had very close elections here and

have always had to work hard to
clinch the seat.”

Current MP Robert Sweeting
has made it clear that he is not
interested in running.

Former MP Mike Lightbourn,
a well-known.realtor who served
in the House of Assembly for sev-
eral years, has been approached
without success. So has Abaco
attorney Fred Gottlieb, another
ex-MP, who is reportedly not
interested in running again.

Nassau businessman Rick

‘Lowe and lawyer Richard Light-

bourn, brother of Mike, have also
been considered.

But Mr Hart is now seen as a

strong alternative, especially as
he is knowledgeable about Abaco
and is popular among all groups.

Bahamas has highes:
dollar ‘leakage’ in Caribbean

M By NEILHARTNELL |. .
‘Tribune Business Editor _



he Bahamas spends on
imports a greater per-
centage of every.tourist
dollar than -all ‘rival
Caribbean countries, with
$0. 85 of every tourist $1 being repatri-

ated outside this nation; an indication -

. that the industry’s benefits are not trick-
ing down to the Bahamian people and
businesses.

Professor Anthony Clayton, giving

_ a presentation on behalf of University.

of the..West Indies (UWI) economist
Diaram Ramjeesingh at yesterday’s.
Small Island Developing States (SIDS)

tourism conference i in Nassau, said the

Bahamas was “right up there at the

top”. when it.came to the ‘leakage’ of :

tourism dollars from its economy.

- While the Bahamas saw 85 per cent
_of its tourism earnings spent outside
this nation on imports, the rates for all

other Caribbean states were much low-

er...

WTO secretary-general uEE Ee nation’s tourism model may be partly to blame

In the Cayman Islands, just 65 per
cent of tourism earnings was spent on
imports. In Antigua & Barbuda, the
percentage was 56 per cent; for Bar-
bados 66 per cent; Bermuda, 59 per
cent;. Trinidad & Tobago, just 22 per
cent; St Lucia, 62 per cent; St Kitts, 60
per cent; Jamaica, 50 per cent; and
Turks & Caicos, 69 per cent.

Professor Clayton said: “Where
you've got a high rate of leakage, that
money is going out of the jurisdiction.
More of what the industry requires is

“not being sourced locally.”

'. The findings are a damning indict-

ment of the Bahamas’ failure to devel-’

op strong linkages between its hotel

_industry and smaller Bahamian-owned

companies that could supply the sector
with the goods it requires.

Professor Clayton added: “Countries
like SIDS, that have few economic link-

have small income multiples.”

For the Bahamas, Mr Ramjeesingh
showed that the tourism income multi-
plier was 0.79, meaning that for every
tourist dollar spent in this nation, it
only created an additional $0.79.

Professor Clayton said the tourism
income multiplier for most SIDS was
less than one, another indication that
most of the benefits from the tourism
industry were being felt outside the

‘Bahamas and other economies.

In contrast, for developed..nations
such’as Turkey, the multiplier was 1. 96,
indicating that each tourist dollar spent
was generating almost another $2

through the money multiplier effect.
The multiplier for the Bahamas and

other SIDS was about half of that.’
Professor Clayton said the onus on
improving this situation also lay with

smaller | companies in the Bahamas and -

other SIDS, as in ma cases their

products were Hot up to quality stan-

_ dards, and in sufficient quantity, to

interest hotels. He also suggested that

micro-businesses should organise col- .

lectively.
Francesco Pravpialli: the United
Nations World Tourism Organisation’s

(WTO) secretary-general, yesterday

suggested that the tourism model the
Bahamas had pursued may have been
partly responsible for the high rate of
tourism dollars ‘leakage’ from. this
nation.

He explaind that the Bahamas had
focused. heavily on the five-star; top-
end of the market that featured large
hotel chains with named brands. To
provide an experience that matched

the marketing, these_properties would

invest heavily on luxury goods and

items, many of which needed to be

imported from abroad.
“Reducing this [leakage] is some-







in general,” Mr Frangialli said.

“If you come to the Bahamas: and a
stay in luxury, five-star accommoda- «

tion, rather a high proportion of what

‘you spend will leave the economy,

because luxury hotels spend a lot on
imports - state-of-the-art audio systems,
food.”

thing that should be done by the i
tourism sector, but also by the economy |

However, Mr Frangialli pointed out

that those who stayed in Bahamian |

During his budget communi- -

that before the.end of. the bud-

the current position of the .

“extraordinary project”, which
he said was equivalent to

$3.2 billion to $4.9 billion,” said
the Prime Minister. -
He explained that master

' “To date, Ginn has spent $70
million on its Bahamas project,
and Bahamian contractors have
been engaged to perform the

three months, a total of $6 mil-

lion was spent in this area:

He added: “In the last five

‘Mr Christie said the investors
could employ up to 5,700 per-

Ginn has built administration
offices in Freeport, and is com-
pleting construction on a 10,000

“square foot centre in West End.

Mr Christie said this was in
addition to the opening of tem-
porary customs ahd immigra-

Mr Christie said: “A 14-seat
commuter plane has been pur-
chased solely for the use of the

“leaving very little of the tourist

IN the previous article, we
looked at how to assess the cred-

shall discuss the methodology
adapted by CariCRIS in assign-

The framework for assessing
credit quality of manufactur-

three broad sources of risk these
companies face - business risk,
financial risk and management
risk. In addition to these three, if
the company is in the process
of implementing any large pro-

a separate risk category.

BU INESS RISK

‘Economy Risk
For the Caribbean region in
particular, risks must be assessed
in the context of small, open
economies. Factors such as eco-
nomic stability, how open the
. economy is to trade in respect of

a particular industry, the per-.

formance and potential threat
of imports, the extent to which

the industry players export their

goods, the industry's depen-

the ability of industry players to
overcome trade barriers, the

risk. The relative vulnerability
of each Caribbean economy to
natural disasters, such as hurri-

canes, must also be taken into ©

consideration.

Industry Risk

The assessment of the risk
posed by the industry in which a
company operates includes an
examination of market attrac-
tiveness, extent of competition,
bargaining power with cus-
tomers/suppliers and govern-
ment policy.

A market is more attractive
if it.is bigger, more diversified
and less cyclical with respect to
revenues and/or costs. Questions
such as how important the mar-
ket is to the overall economy,

in what stage of its.life cycle the
product is, and is there immi-
nent risk of product obsoles-
cence, must also be answered.
When high barriers to entry
and low threats from substitutes _
characterise an industry, either
domestic or imported, then the
revenues of entities operating
within such an industry are rel-
atively protected. The extent of |
bargaining power enjoyed by a
company with its customers and
suppliers also indicates the rela’
tive ability to protect margins.:

also necessary to consider a gov- ©

THE TRIBUNE

Pi eS aaa
The ‘strain’ of rent

default and seizure





ENTREPRENEURS should
be mindful of-a landlord’s right
to distrain, in the event that an
entrepreneur-tenant defaults
on payment or any of the terms
and conditions of the commer-
cial lease.

In circumstances where a
landlord wishes to enforce his
right to forfeit a commercial or
residential lease for non-pay-
ment of rent, it is important the
landlord or his authorised
agent makes a formal demand
for the rent or ensure that there
is some exemption, under the
terms and conditions of the
lease, that allows him to waive
this right to formally demand
payment.

Notwithstanding the tenan-
t’s equitable right to relief
against forfeiture (provided

certain conditions are met), the’

landlord may seek to exercise
other remedies available to him
in satisfaction of payment of
rent monies that may be in
arrears, and for which the ten-
ant has effectively breached an
important contractual term of

the lease. One such remedy is a,

landlord’s legal right to distrain
forrentinarrears. . -
Under the summary remedy
of distress for rent, a landlord
may secure the payment of rent
or the performance of certain
obligations due to him by seiz-
ing a tenant’s goods and chat-
tels - any property other than
freehold land - found upon the
premises in respect of which

the rent or obligations are due —

without the use of legal
process. |

Distress for rent is the
process by which a landlord

seizes a tenant’s goods and

chattels in order to secure pay-
ment of rent in arrears. If the
tenant fails to pay the rent
arrears within a specified time
period after distress has been
levied, and notice of distress

- given, the landlord may sell the

goods and keep the amount
due.

Legal
Ease






Contractually, the seizure of
goods by the landlord in exer-
cise of his right to distrain acts
as a security for the perfor-
mance of an obligation — the
tenant’s obligation to pay rent
and the landlord’s right to
receive rent in consideration
of leasing his premises/proper-
ty.

The right to distrain applies
only to goods and personal
chattels. Certain goods are
absolutely privileged against
distraint, while others have
conditional privilege, meaning
they may only be taken where
there is no other sufficient dis-

. tress.

Articles subject to absolute
privilege against distraint:

(1) (a) property of the
Crown

(b) property of those enjoy-
ing diplomatic privilege

(c) property in the custody
of the law

(2) Property delivered to a
person carrying on a public
trade to be dealt with in the
exercise of his trade.

(3) Fixtures

(4) Wearing apparel, bedding
and tools of the trade valued
at a certain fixed amount.

(5) Perishable articles, mon-
ey, and wild animals.

_ Certain requirements must
be met before the right to dis-
train for rent may be exercised:

(1) The relationship of land-
lord and tenant must exist both
when the-rent becomes due
and when the distress is levied.

(2) The rent must be in
arrears.

If the rent is only payable on .

a condition precedent, it cannot
be distrained until the condi-

tion is fulfilled. In contract law,
a condition precedent is “a pro-
vision that does not form part
of a contractual obligation [in
this case, the terms: of the
lease], but operates to suspend
the contract until a specified
event has happened”.

The lease must be an existing

lease in order for the right to

distrain to be exercised.
Although a formal instrument
is not required, possession tak-
en by the tenant under an
agreement for a tenancy which
can be specifically enforced
gives the landlord the right to
distrain.

Additionally, a distress can
only be levied for a rent which
is certain. It is also important

that the rent be in arrears.

Rent is not considered to be
in arrears, under landlord and
tenant law, until after the last
minute of the day on which it is
made payable. Therefore, there
can be no distress until the day
after the rent becomes due. At
the time the rent is due, the
distrainor must possess a legal
or equitable interest in the
property upon which the rent is
owed:

oping can make you more or
less dependent,” Mr Frangialli
said. “A lower average daily
spend can bring more to the
economy, creating more local
jobs.”

The WTO secretary-general
added that reducing the tourism
industry’s reliance on imports,
and ‘leakages’ was a question
that needed to be debated
between the Government and
the hotel chains.

Mr Frangialli said the Gov-
ernment had instruments at its
disposal to encourage hotels to
purchase products from local
Bahamian suppliers, such as tax
and other incentives, plus the
marketing support it provided
to the industry and develop-
ment approvals.

He added: “Economic leak-
ages ‘are quite common in small
island states. The need to
import a relatively high pro-
portion of the inputs required
by hotels, transport and other
tourism companies, repatriation
of benefits for foreign tourism

companies operating in SIDS,
management fees of foreign
hotel operators, employment of
expatriate staff are among the
main generators of leakages.
“These need to be reduced
through finding linkages with
other industries in the local
economy whenever possible,
but also by imagining and
putting in place innovative
development and management

models in the tourism sector
itself.” ;

Jennifer Edwards, a sustain-
able tourism lecturer at UWI,
said the tourism industry need-
ed to be treated as an export
industry by policymakers, mov-
ing beyond traditional schools
of planning and thought.

She added that this required a
new “mindset” from tourism

and development planners, and.
urged the Bahamas and other
SIDS to focus on enhancing
linkages between the domestic
economy and tourism, rather
than trying to plug the leaks.

“The full economic potential:
of tourism is not being realised,” :
Ms Edwards said. “J_ong-ierm ;
competitiveness is being ¢'sad-'
vantaged by not having ths par-’
ticipation of the local entre. »»¢-:
neur and the small man.”

In conjunction with a Wort. ;
Trade Organisation (WTO):
strategist, Ms Edwards had:
developed a proposal for;
designing tourism ‘destination }
clusters’ as part of a Strategic!
National Export Strategy,;
believing this will help retain;
tourism dollars in local:
economies.

Christie added.

Grand Bahamians are unlike-
ly, though, to believe a buyer
has been found for the Royal
Oasis until its identity is
announced and the deal com-
pleted, given the many ‘false
dawns’ that have surrounded
the resort’s future with govern-
. ment ministers constantly claim-
* ing a solution was around the
corner.

The Royal Oasis has been

struck in September 2004, leav-
ing 1300 Bahamians without a
job. Following a-series of meet-
ings held in New York last
month, involving the resort’s de
facto owner, Lehman Brothers
private equity arm, the Hotel
Corporation of the Bahamas
and the Grand Bahama Port
Authority, various offers for the
Royal Oasis were assessed.

[: ‘Dynamic’ Roy:
Oasis buyer in place

Royal Oasis. One of those was
the Barlow Group, a Toronto-
based real estate developer,
which has projects located
across Europe and in Canada.
That group had promised an

- investment of between $175-

$250 million, inclusive of the
purchase price, to revitalise the
Royal Oasis, but it is under-
stood that the potential buyer is
not the Barlow Group.

The identity of the other top
bidder was unknown, but The
Tribune understood it was a
group that had entered the Roy-
al Oasis race at the last minute.
That group set its offer price
without inspecting the Royal
Oasis’s physical premises.

Meanwhile, the lrish proper-
ty developer that already has
interests in Freeport, Harcourt
Developments, has offered $30
million for the Royal Oasis.

It was initially part of a three-
strong group including West-
gate Resorts and Planet Holly-
wood, the proposed hotel and
casino operators, proposing a

$200 million investment in the
Royal Oasis. All three parties
are still interested in the Grand
Bahama property, although it

‘is unknown f they are part of

the same consortium.

Back in 2005, Obie Wilch-
combe, minister of tourism, had
described the more than $22
million owed by the Royal
Oasis to various creditors -
including many government and
Grand Bahama Port Authority
agencies - as a "quagmire".

The Bahamas Hotel Industry
Management Pension Fund and
Bahamas Hotel and Allied
Industries Pension Fund have

both executed a judgement to’

"take possession" of the resort's
assets, meaning that a portion of
the sales proceeds will have to
be used to settle the sums owed
to them by the Royal Oasis,
which in January 2005 amount-
ed to $4.1 million. ;

With respect to the Isle of
Capri casino at the Our Lucaya
resort, Mr Christie confirmed

They have argued that this
encourages cruise ship passengers
to stay on board rather than dis-
embark in Nassau, reducing per
capita visitor spending by this cat-
egory of tourists. Per capita
spending by cruise ship passen-
gers has now fallen to between
$60-$70:

Mr Issa yesterday said the
largest vessel in the world, the
Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines’
Freedom of the Seas, with 4,375
rooms on board had a shopping
mall that. was larger than Bay
Street.

“There’s probably more rooms
and more people than in the Exu-
mas,” Mr Issa said. What does it
leave behind?”

He added: “Promote the bene-
fits of land-based tourism,
because the sea-based tourism,
which leaves very little of the
tourist dollar behind, is damag-
ing to the social environment.”

In contrast, land-based
stopover visitors to the Bahamas
have an average per capita spend-

Yesterday’s conference was
focused on sustainable tourism

development, and how tourism- _
‘related projects could be viable

and maximise the economic and

- social benefits for their local com- .

munities, while also preserving
the environment.

Mr Issa said: “Good environ-

That’s a self-evident truth.

“In terms of retaining the:
tourism dollar, that starts from: -

the building and design of the
project through to the staffing

B TENNIS

- PARIS
Associated Press

HOPPING in place in a hall-

way leading to the court, Rafael
Nadal was drenched with sweat
before he smacked a ball in his
French Open quarter-final,
.. according to Associated Press.

A study in perpetual motion,
Nadal actually got a bit of a
breather on Wednesday, when
Novak Djokovic of Serbia-
Montenegro quit with a back
injury after losing the first two
sets. That put defending cham-
pion Nadal into the semi-finals
at Roland Garros with what
goes into the books, as his 58th
consecutive victory on, clay,
extending his record.

“The fact that today’s match
was, I wouldn’t say “comfort-
able,’ but low-intensity, is going
to ‘help Rafael,” said Nadal’s
coach and uncle, Toni. “It’s
great to compensate for the
long matches he’s had.” |

That is hardly good news for
Nadal’s next opponent, Ivan
Ljubicic, who beat Julien Ben-

‘neteau of France 6-2, 6-2, 6-3
to’reach his first semi-final in
27:trips to Grand Slam tourna-
ments.

With No 2 Nadal facing No
Ljubicic, and No 1 Roger Fed-
erer playing No 3 Diego Nal-
bandian on Friday, it’s first time
sitice 1985 that the men seeded
1-4 at the French Open all made
the semi-finals.

."I don’t think there’s any
doubt that (Nadal) is a big
favorite. Of the four of us left,
he is definitely the favoured
one,” said Ljubicic, who has not
faced a seeded player in the
tournament. “Just by reaching
the semi-finals, I did something
incredible. There’s absolutely
going to be zero pressure for

Endurance

The French Open is general-
ly regarded as the most gru-
elling tournament on tour, and
this year’s edition apparently
was as tough as any: Djokovic’s
retirement was the eighth of
2006, the most among men at
Roland Garros in the modern
era. Like the other majors, it
requires players to string togeth-
er seven victories over two
weeks to earn the title. Unlike
the others, it’s played on clay,
which tends to extend points
and matches, making stamina
and will as important as superb
strokes. g

As well-stocked as the 20-
year-old Nadal is with all three
of those components, even he
was grateful to get off the court
after fewer than 2 hours
Wednesday: He logged more
than eight hours over his previ-
ous two matches.

“For those of us more used
to playing on clay, maybe we
resist a little more, but some-

‘times we have a tough time, too.

We feel the pain, too,” he said.
“It’s not always easy to play
four, five sets with such high
intensity.”

He sure doesn’t show it on
court, where he bounces on his
toes during the coin toss, sprints
to the baseline for pre-match
warm-ups — and then really gets
going once play begins, churn-
ing up clouds of dirt as he
scrambles and slides.

ranked Djokovic hung in there:
on long rallies, winning seven
of the first 10 points that lasted
at least 10 strokes. And.
Djokovic actually finished with
more winners, 27-20. ;

Perhaps with that in mind,
the 19-year-old Djokovic gave
this assessment of Nadal: “He’s
the best on this surface, but he’s
not unbeatable. That’s for
sure.”

Still, Nadal does things few
others can. In the ninth game
of the match, a seemingly out-
of-position Nadal skidded into
place for a forehand passing
winner down the line. Djokovic,

a bit incredulous, watched the
ball sail by, then applauded his

opponent’s brilliance.

Nadal broke the unseeded
Djokovic’s serve to start the sec-
ond set on the match’s longest
point, a 27-point exchange.
Nadal conjured up a drop shot
that Djokovic was unable to
handle, and the underdog
pounded the ball off the court
and into the stands. That was
part of a run in which Nadal
claimed 11 of 12 points to open
a 3-0 lead in the set.

Treatment

Djokovic received medical
treatment at the ensuing
changeover, lying on a towel for
a massage. From then on, he
rarely would go more than a
point or two without clutching
at his back.

Trailing 6-4, 6-4,. Djokovic
served to begin the third set.
After missing a backhand to fall
behind 15-30, he shook his head
and walked to the net to con-
cede the first major quarter-
final of his career. Djokovic also
retired at last year’s French
Open, in the second round; this
was the first time in the Open
era a man had retired at Roland
Garros in the quarterfinals or
later. “
“It’s not nice to win like
that,” Nadal said.

He'll take it, of course, and
plans to work on serving on his
day off. ,

Ljubicic’s serve is his strong
suit, and. he swatted 13 aces’

ONCE again, the Bahamas Lawn
Tennis Association will focus its atten-
tion on a young, vibrant team atthe
Davis Cup competition.

Next week, the team of Devin
Mullings, Marvin Rolle, H’Cone
Thompson and Chris Eldon will carry
the Bahamas flag at the American
Zone III Davis Cup tie in San Sal-
vador, El Salvador.

This is not the first time that the
Bahamas has relied on the younger
players to lead the way. This is the
third year that the Bahamas has seen
the transformation after Mark Knowles
and Mark Merklein, the last two sea-
soned players, made their exit.

In 2003, the Bahamas lost 0-5 to Peru
in Peru in the American Zone One
quarter-final. The loss dropped the
Bahamas to Zone II for the first time
as a country since 1992, when the
Bahamas advanced to Zone One.

For the next decade, the Bahamas

enjoyed a greal deal of success, riding

on the success achieved by Roger Far-
rington, Knowles, Merklein, John Far-

rington and Sean Cartwright with John
Antonas as captain.

Those were definitely the glory days.
Those were days when the Bahamian
people look forward to the high level of
team competition, primarily because

the Bahamas had the opportunity to

host many of the ties.

Back then, even with the level of
success achieved, Bahamians were call-
ing fora transformation with the
younger players coming on board.

But it wasn’t time.

Since winning that first round, 3-2

‘in Chile in February, 1993, the
‘Bahamas has been on a high and it

was evident by the path that the team
trod.

When it wasn. ’t Smith, it was
Knowles, or Farrington, or Merklein,
or a combination of those players who
pulled the Bahamas through as we
maintained our position in Zone One.

Could any of the younger players
make an impact? I don’t think so.

This is definitely their time to shine
and with the Bahamas now in Zone

III, this new crop of players have the
opportunity to prove just as the players
ahead of them did, that they can play.

It’s going to be a mammoth task for
the Bahamas to regain its position in
Zone One. It may take a lot longer for

this crop of players to do it.

The difference — this crop of players
doesn’t have a big name player like
Smith or Knowles, who have already
made their presence felt on the inter-
national scene.

There’s no player on the team either
who has secured a top ranking in sin-
gles or doubles in the world. In fact,

none of the players are ranked in the

top 100.

The good thing about this squad is
that they are young. None of the play-
ers are over the age of 24 and, while
two of them are currently playing on
the circuit in Futures events, two are
still in college. -

_ Last year, I watched the team, inclu-
sive of Mullings, Rolle, Ryan Sweeting
and Thompson, give it a gallant effort

It’s still early to see any great trans- ;

ers continue to play together, ms
change will come.

It’s not going to happen overnight...




But with each passing tie, the players ” .

will only learn from their mistakes.’
Hopefully, a round robin setting this *'
time around where they play against a

couple different teams, will help them .

make the necessary adjustments.) __
At the same time, it would be good
to see the Bahamas emerge out of next

week’s tie with a trip back to the =

American Zone II, and eventually
Zone One.

a gruelling and strenuous oné,
but nonetheless, one that has
to be made no later than
today,” said Wilson yesterday.

“We haven’t has yet finalised

a full 12-man roster, but we |

expect to‘have that done. I can’t

~ say who will be on the team:

the coaching staff is looking at
few persons who has! made or
left an impressionable impact
on them, and there were per-
sons who have stepped their
game up to the next level.

When we add all of this into the:

equation it just makes the solu-
tion even harder than we origi-
nally expected.

“I suspect that there will be ©

some cores players on the

squad due to
e named soon

| - team along with the local play-

ers here. It is a different mix — it
is certainly a younger team and
therefore they are not that
experience like the teams in the
past. We will be missing out on
our dominant big’ man we had
in the post, Ryan Moss. This
was something the team was so
strong in the past.

“But we are still confident
that this team will be able to go

' to Jamaica.and finish in the top
three and therefore qualify to’

move onto the CentroBasket-
ball Tournament. This should
be the case for the female’s
team too. They are ready and
their core has a great mix.”

The Bahamas’ men’s squad
will have to ward off teams
from Barbados, St Kitts and
Nevis, US Virgin Islands, St
Vincent and the Grenadines,
Antigua and Barbuda and host
country Jamaica.

‘On the female side, teams
from Barbados, US Virgin
Islands, Jamaica and Antigua
and Barbuda will be in the line-
up. Defending champions Cuba
will not be taking part.

Both teams will have to finish
in the top three of the tourna-
ment in order to secure a quali-
fying spot in the CentroBasket-
ball Tournament, set for July.

Last year’s tournament the

men’s team finished fifth, the

women’s team finished just shy
of the qualifying spot for the
CentroBasketball tournament.

‘ WITH less:than a month of
preparation left for their tough-
est test_of the year, the Bahamas
Men’s. Junior National Team is
focused on a positive showing
against the world’s best compe-
tition:

’ Fhe, ee will be travelling
later.this month to compete in
the-FIBA Americas under 18
Championships i in San Antonio,
Texas; from June 28-J uly 2.

The Greehey Arena on the
campus of St Mary's University
will host the tournament which
will feature eight national teams
including the America, Cana-
da, Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay,
the Dominican Republic and
Puerto Rico.

The top four finishing teams
- will.qualify for the 2007 FIBA.
U19 World Championship, July
7-22 in Bratislava, Slovakia.

National Team Head Coach
Mario Bowleg said the

Bahamas is on an elite level in
terms of talent and should fare
well in the tournament.

“At this age level, there are

not much squads better the

Bahamas,” he said, “However
this is a very difficult field and
play will be tough in every game.”
With a number of no shows
and a high turnout number at
the tryouts, Bowleg said the
team selection process has been
somewhat hindered this year.
“By this weekend we should

‘ have the field narrowed to 15

players,” he said, “The problem
is that we have been holding
back because we want to have
our best team possible available
and many players were not able
to come out to practices
because of summer school com-
mitments in the US.”

The team will not have a hec-
tic schedule as past Junior

. National teams have had in the

summer months, putting a lot

of pressure on a good perfor-

mance in this tournament.
“This is the only tournament

uniors optimistic in
build-up to tourney

we will be competing in this
summer, so we really want to
finish in the top four and
advance,” Bowleg said, “If not
we’ll move backward and play in
the Centrobasket tournament.”

The tournament format fea-
tures the eight teams divided
into two preliminary round
groups consisting of four teams
each.

The Bahamas is seated in

Group B along with Puerto

Rico,.Canada and Argentina.

The USA, Uruguay, Brazil
and the Dominican Republic
make up group A.

The opening round play will
begin June 28, with the
Bahamas squaring .off against
Argentina.

Past noteworthy participants
in the FIBA Americas under 18
Championship include the
Sacramento Kings’ Shareef

_ Abdur-Rahim, the New York

Knicks’ Stephon Marbury, the
Denver Nuggets’ Carmelo
Anthony, and the Orlando
Magics’ Grant Hill.

WITH just a month left
before the start of the historic

Stanford 20/20 Caribbean .

Bahamas Cricket Association
(BCA) has narrowed the selec-
tion process down to 20.

The Stanford Caribbean
Cricket Tournament is sched-
uled for the July through
August months at the Stanford
Cricket Grounds, in Antigua.

Playing for a big cash prize
has prompted the Bahamas to
improve their level of play
before ‘the tournament, and
with their backs planted
against the wall for their first
tournament game, the BCA
has planned two exhibition

games for this weekend in Mia-

mi, Florida. .

The weekend tournament is
designed to assist the Bahamas
with its most difficult situation:
playing a night game, a style
of play the BCA is not used to
since the Haynes Oval has no
facility lights.

- P.O. Box SS- 6250, NASSAU, BAHAMAS

.

The 20-member training
squad; whose names were sub-
mitted to the organising com-

to travel to participate in the
exhibition games.

‘Surviving the most recent cut
were Llewellyn Armstrong,
Whitcliff Atkinson, Gary Arm-
strong, Johnathan Barry, Venris
Bennett, Garsha Blair, Gary

Patrick, Gregory Taylor Jr,
Mark Taylor, Courtney Wad-
dell and Dwight Weakley. ‘The
team will be coached: by John
Welch, an Englishman, who is
assisting the BCA. Llewellyn
Armstrong and Whitcliff Atkin-
son are, the team and assistant
team captains respectively.

The team will travel on Fri-
day to play in the first of their
two exhibition games under
the lights on Friday and Sat-
urday nights at the Lauderhill

* THE Bahamas men’s nation-
al:team will have its work cut
out for them when they travel
to San Salvador, El Salvador
this weekend for the Americas
Zone Group III.

The Bahamas will be a part of

_ the eight-team field, which com-

ptisés Costa Rica, Cuba, El Sal-
vador, Haiti, Honduras, Puer-
to:Rico and Trinidad & Tobago,
that. will be play in the round-
robin tournament from June 12-
18.

» Each nation will drawn into
two round-robin groups of
four.The first two teams from
each pool will advance to anoth-
er round-robin group.

.The teams finishing first and
second in this final pool are pro-
moted to Americas Zone
Group II in 2007.

The teams finishing third and
fourth i in each pool advance to
another round-robin pool. The
teams finishing in third and
fourth in this subsequent pool

are relegated to Americas Zone -

Group IV in 2007.

This is the first time that the
Bahamas has found itself in this
position, but team captain John
Farrington is confident that the
team will prevail.

“Everybody is playing
Futures and some tournaments

Mi MARVIN Rolle



@ JOHN Farrington

in preparation for the tie,” Far-
rington said. “As far as I know,
everybody except Chris Eldon
are playing in some type of
tournament.” ;

Eldon came.on as.a late
replacement for reigning US
Open junior champion Ryan
Sweeting, who has since given
up his Bahamian citizenship to
play for the United States.

He will join collegian Devin
Mullings and pro players
Marvin Rolle and -H’Cone
Thompson, the latter three
players who are returning



from last year’s team.

Last year, the team lost 2-3
to the Netherlands Antilles in
March and was forced to play in
the relegation match in July in
Colombia. Blanked 0-5 in the
tie, the Bahamas was dropece
ie Zone III.

- Farrington said everybody is
gearing themselves. up for the

team and that should give them —
‘the incentive they need to Keep

their hopes alive.

“We have to match tough and
fit and ready to. play against
some strong competition,” Far-
rington stressed. “It can only
help us when we play the round
robin against a couple different
teams.”

Despite the fact that it is a
young team, minus Sweeting,
Farrington said the good thing is
that they essentially have the
same nucleus they had for the
past two years.

“Everybody know each other
and if everybody work towards
the same common goal, we
should do very well. It’s not an
individual game, So whoever
gets chosen to play, we don’t
have that problem where a play-
er is upset because he didn’t get
to play.”

When the team get together
in Colombia.on Sunday for the

first time, Farrington said his -

main emphasis will be placed
on getting the team focussed on
the task ahead of them.
