Man charged with unlawful
intercourse with six-year-old

alleges prison beatings

i By NATARIO
MCKENZIE

A MAN charged with the
rape of a six-year-old girl
pleaded with a judge yester-
day to save him from the bru-
tality he alleged he was endur-
ing at the hands of prisoners
as well as prison guards.

-Andrew. Bridgewater; 32,

who is on remand at Her

Majesty’s Prison, appeared’

before Senior Justice Anita
Allen yesterday and asked the

judge to bring an end to this

brutality.

A distraught Bridgewater ©

alleged that he was being beat-
en with chains. The accused
man told court that he was

suffering brutality.at the hands
of prisoners as well as ; prison
officers.

Bridgewater was arraigned
before chief magistrate Roger
Gomez in mid- September ‘on
the charge of unlawful inter-
course with a six-year-old girl.

He was also arraigned on

the charge of forcible deten-
tion, for allegedly; taking the
girl away against her will. It is
alleged that he committed the

offences between Thursday,
. September 14, and Friday,

September 15.

On the day of the arraign-
ment, Bridgewater had to be
sheltered from an angry mob
as dozens of persons, including
the parents of the victim, gath-
ered at Bank Lane shouting
insults at him as‘he was led to

THERE hes been a jump in
the number of passport appli-

last six weeks, indicating that
the "potential fallout" from

to Tourism Director General
Vernice Walkine.

According to Ms Walkine,

funding — but this
NHI bill is flawed

@ By RUPERT MISSICK Jr
Chief Reporter

While the FNM supports the
introduction of a levy to pro-
vide additional funding for
healthcare, the party is opposed

_ to the nationalisation of health

insurance, opposition leader
Hubert Ingraham said yester-.
day.

He pointed out that a number
of important details are not cov-
ered in the bill — including the
time and manner for rendering
healthcare services to contribu-
tors to the NHI, the conditions
under which services will be
rendered under the NHI, and
the exclusion of any type or
class of services.

Mr Ingraham said that in his.
party’s view, this government is
beginning at the wrong point.

He added that the introduc-
tion of national health insur-
ance should not be about poli-
tics — but that is what it has
become.

House can claim to love the

GOVERNMENT ‘does not
need the National Health Insur-
ance Bill to deliver health insur-
ance to the uninsured, former

prime minister Hubert Ingra- .

ham said yesterday during
debate on the bill.

“Having neglected to deliver
on its promises, the governing
party is now telling us — with a

Bahamian people more or less
than the other. To pander to
emotion and raise people’s
hopes is to deflect attention
from the need for health insur-
ance for all,” the former prime
minister said.

Mr Ingraham said he believes
that persons needing healthcare
should be able to access it with
dignity.

“We do. not accept that dis-
agreement with the governing
party over its national insurance
scheme should subject critics to
mean-spirited attacks by mem-
bers of the governing, party,”
Mr Ingraham said.

The opposition said that
healthcare professionals, with-
out whose support the country’s
efforts at improved healthcare
must surely fail, should not find
themselves maligned and insult-
ed.

“There should not be fear of
informing the public; there
should not be a preoccupation
with controlling what the people
hear.

“Similarly, we do not

treat the

iene sense of urgency — that
the need for the National

Health Insurance scheme is

dire! ‘Bahamians are dying
because they-are unable to

access health care,’ the prime.

minister told us. We heard that
before. se

“People voted to change that
before; the governing party did
not deliver. If, according to
them, people are dying because
there is no national health insur-

accept that representatives of
labour or employers of labour
should be slandered for not
agreeing hook, line and
sinker to what the governing
party has proposed,” Mr
Ingraham said.

He called on parliamentari-
ans to be honest with the public
and pointed out that national
health insurance will reduce the
take-home pay of workers
throughout the economy.

Mr Ingraham said that the
scheme now proposed by the
government has not been
thoughtfully designed.

“Essential prerequisites to the
introduction of an effective
national health insurance bene-
fit have not been undertaken.
For instance, it is inconceivable
that when insured persons are
hospitalised they will still con-
valesce in the same public wards
built for them more than 50
years ago. At the very least
under an FNM government
there would be semi-private
rooms,” he said.

causes or from overwhelming

said, the Sonation does not
see the value or need for the
creation of a Health’ Commis-
sion to administer the pro-
posed scheme, because this is
not cost-effective. i
“NIB benefits should be
extended to include health

administered. Others may die
because of medical negligence.
And ‘yet others may die
because they do not, have
essential medication.

“But we need not scare peo-
ple to have our way, and play
tricks with people’s emotions |
in order to deceive them,” the:
opposition leader said.

Official statistics on the
number of deaths annually in.
the Bahamas over the past
decade, Mr Ingraham said, do
not support the governing par-
ty’s assertions.

“If the elderly and other
needy persons could get their
medications for high blood
and diabetes regularly and
consistently there may well be
fewer deaths; these are med-
ications they are now — by law"

’ — entitled to receive.

Miller: time
forNHI |
billto be |
enacted |

LESLIE Miller

MINISTER ‘of Agriculture
and Marine Resources Leslie
Miller lent his support to the
National Health Insurance Bill
yesterday — calling it the second
most important initiative under-
taken in the Bahamas in rela-
tion to social ills.

Mr Miller noted that much
has been said in the newspapers
and on the radio in recent days.
concerning the NHI.

He said it is now time for the
bill to be enacted into law.so
that the Bahamian people can
benefit from some of the many
advantages that it offers.

“Most persons say they agree
with the bill. But of course, they
then stop and say that the time
is wrong... on television last
night there was a group of men
discussing the National Insur-
ance Bill. I listened attentively
Mr ‘speaker, and you can only.
draw one conclusion: if it were
not for the doers, the critics
would soon be out of business,”
Mr Miller said.

The minister said that in his
view, it is never too soon to help

..those in need. ; :
“Is it evera wrong time to do, a

the right thing?” he asked.

Mr Miller noted that Prime 3

Minister Perry Christie appoint-
ed an independent Blue Rib-
bon Commission to look at the

NHI plan and spoke highly of

the committee’s membership.

He also spoke of how the pre-
sent system depends on philan-
thropy, noting that he has per-
sonally given aid to many con-
stituents and others struggling
with medical bills.

Mr Miller strongly criticised
those who oppose the bill — and
some who he claims are against
anything progressive. in the
Bahamas, including Petrocaribe
or LNG.

job security
financial, diagnostics, addition-
al trained health care profes-
sionals, and a system to bill and
collect from private insurers for
services rendered to insured
persons at our public health
care institutions.

“And National Health Insur-
ance needs to ensure the provi-
sion of medication for treatment

of chronic illnesses like hyper-
tension (high blood pressure)

_and diabetes, for all. Universal

mandatory catastrophic health
insurance coverage would make
insurance coverage affordable
for, all in respect of serious ill-
nesses.

“Hence the interest of the
FNM while we were in office in
pursuing a partnership with the
private sector for the introduc-
tion of a National Catastrophic
Health Insurance Scheme,” Mr
Ingraham said.

Ingraham:
we will
make NHI

plan work

i By RUPERT MISSICK Jr
Chief Reporter

The FNM will support the
start being made to establish a
National Health Insurance Plan
for the country and will — if they
win the next géneral election —

provide the competent leader- ~

ship and management to make
it work, opposition leader
Hubert Ingraham said.

Mr Ingraham said that oppo-
sition party believes, along with
“most enlightened people in
today’s world” that health care
is a fundamental human right.

“We also believe that access
to health care ought not to be
determined by private wealth
or ability to pay,” Mr Ingraham
said.

He said that the FNM will
commit to convening a meeting
with all stakeholders — the pri-
vately insured, the uninsured,
and the private and public med-

ical sectors — so as to achieve a .

consensus on the best and most
effective means of providing
health insurance for all.

“We commit to introducing
a universal health insurance
scheme that will take into
account the needs of the people
and provide for an appropriate
role for the private sector and
for providers of private health
insurance,” he said.

However, unless persuaded
otherwise, the FNM is inclined
to view the National Insurance
Board as the appropriate vehi-
cle by and through which uni-
versal health insurance should
be provided, he said.

This current bill, Mr Ingra-
ham said, will not produce a
national health insurance
scheme.

“It is only an umbrella. More,
much more, needs to be done
before national health insurance

can’become a reality,” he said. ©

In addition, he pointed. out
that during the last election
campaign, the governing party
sold itself. as the party of con-
sultation.

“Now it is said there will be
no compromise. To hear them
during the election campaign
was to infer that no government
elected prior to 2002 had ever
adequately consulted the
Bahamian people on matters of
national importance.

“Now they stand condemned
by many for not consulting suf-
ficiently on their proposed
National Health Insurance
scheme. I envy them not. You
know, we believed that we had
consulted widely on the finan-
cial services legislation enacted
‘with the unanimous support of
members opposite in 2000.

“We also believed that we
had consulted widely on the
amendments to the Constitu-
tion prior to their unanimous
adoption in this place and place-
ment before the people in a ref-
erendum. But in both cases
some people thought otherwise;
they were aided and abetted by
members opposite — the same
members who voted for it — to
‘cast doubt in the minds of many
more. Now they, the governing
party, are getting a dose of their
own medicine,” Mr Ingraham
- Said.

He noted that the minister of
Health recently said that con-
sultation does not mean accept-
ing all advice or recommenda-
tions proffered.

“He complained that those
whose points of view had not
been adopted by the governing
party now claim not to have
been consulted. He insisted
that consultation did not give
those consulted the right to give
instructions!

“That is what I. used to
believe. Now I know better. The
governing party made its bed;
they must: now lie in it. They
sowed the wind; now let them
reap the whirlwind,” Mr Ingra-
ham said.

But, unlike the government,

” Mr Ingraham said the FNM will

not say “yes” to the government
and then wait until afterwards
to “stab them in the back”.

“We are telling them and the
nation publicly and up front
what we.think about their pro-
.posals,” ‘he. said.

ee NHI bill
on emotions

@ By PAUL TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter

FOREIGN Affairs Minis-
ter Fred Mitchell yesterday
defended his party against sug-
gestions that they are selling
the National Health Insurance
(NHI) Bill on emotions.

Mr Mitchell, the PLP repre-
sentative for Fox Hill, said that
there is nothing wrong with
doing just that — as many other
public policies that are benetfi-
cial to the country have been
moved by entotion.

“Human beings are rational
creatures but they are also
creatures of emotion. Surely

the other side is not arguing:

that we must so strip ourselves
from our emotions that we lose
our feeling for people. But the
fight is not just on emotions.
This makes logical sense.:
“You can save the lives of
citizens, to stay in the work
force or become productive
citizens if you are to provide
them with quality heathcare.
You do so by spreading the
tisk of the cost and you do so

to allow those who are in their
senior years or too young’ to
join the work force to be able
to be cared for without bank-
rupting their parents or their
care givers or themselves,” he
said.

Choice

Mr Mitchell also explained
that under NHI, individuals
will still be allowed to chose
whether or not they want to
see their own private doctor,
and that it represents lifetime
coverage that will continue
from job to job.

“The opponents of this have

not been frank or honest with,

the country on this matter.
They have said that they were
not consulted. The facts show
otherwise, It is pure sophistry
on their part to seek now in
answer to the fact of consulta-
tion with them to say that

there is a difference being:

called to a meeting and being
given information and in. being
consulted, ” he said.

Mr Mitchell said he finds it
very ironic that just two
months ago, the FNM criti-

cised Prime Minister Perry.

Christie for not being able to

_make a decision, saying that —

he consulted too much.

Now, he said, the FNM are
of the opinion that policy is
being rushed.

“The question we have to ask
is how much more consulting
do we need after starting this
process in 1984 under the now
leader of the opposition Hubert
Ingraham. At some point we
must make a decision, let’s get
started and. while we develop
the model, we can improve as
we go along.”

“You just have to remem-
ber my example of the nurse at

the start of my intervention

who said to me, ‘Mr Mitchell, I
know that if you do not have
money in this country for
heath care, you will die.’ Die
indeed — and some want us to
continue with that. Dying is a
choice that is easy to make,
when you-are not the one
doing the dying,” he said. «

NHI plan will be implemented

by the end of 2007 — Sears

THE implementation of
the National Health Insur-
ance Plan is scheduled to
come on stream by the end
of 2007, Minister of Educa-
tion Alfred Sears said yes-
terday in the House of
Assembly.

Mr Sears said’ that fur-
ther consultation will take
place with stakeholders’
with regards to the forma-
tion of NHI regulations
before the scheme comes
to fruition.

A computerised, data-
intensive system — covering
registration with “smart
cards” for all members,
contributions from partici-
pants, with on-line, real-
time processing of claims —
will also be installed, he
said.

' “Contracts will be estab-
lished with health service
providers, specifically the
terms for being part of the
network, as is done with
private insurance, relation-
ships with other agencies
such as NIB (National
Insurance Board) and the
Ministry of Social Services
(for timely and accurate
data on the indigent),” he

_ said. °

Mr Sears also advised that
reviews will be done to eval-
uate the behavioural pat-

BAT ee

terns of healthcare providers
under. NHI against the perfor-
mance of other providers to
prevent fraud.

This service, he said, will be
linked to the NHI’s system of
incentives and penalties for.
providers.

Also, a medical panel will ba

established to adjudicate oh:

overseas referrals and under-
take pre-authorisation clear-
ances in relation to expensive
procedures.

So it is the PLP’s election bait.

WELL, at last we have it from the horse’s
mouth — at least one of the horses.

Debating the proposed National Health
Insurance plan in the House of Assembly yes-
terday Carmichael MP John Carey, Parlia-
mentary Secretary to Tourism, said he was con-
fident that Bahamians would vote for the PLP
in the nearing election on the strength of gov-
ernment’s national health proposal. He was
also satisfied that they would chase all of those
who criticised the health plan from their doors.

While many of his colleagues, especially
Prime Minister Christie, have denied that intro-
ducing universal health insurance at this time is
a glittering bauble being dangled to tempt the
electorate, Mr Carey is convinced that it is the
trump card that will draw the votes: As Oppo-
sition Leader Hubert Ingraham asked, if in fact
so many Bahamians were dying in this country
for lack of a national insurance plan, why was-
n’t this plan introduced sooner —- especially as
Minister Alfred Sears pointed out yesterday
that even if it were passed now it would take at
least another year before it could be imple-
mented.

Many government speakers in the House
yesterday trumpeted the end of cookouts and
other activities that Bahamians resorted to to
raise funds for their medical care.

“Without some form of health insurance,

many people have to dip deep into their savings .

or borrow or depend on help and the charity of
others,” Mr Christie told the House on Novem-
ber 15 when he introduced the Bill for debate.
“Cookouts, church welfare activities, or dona-
tion sheets, all to find the cash to pay people’s
health care bills.” .
However, what Mr Christie did not make
clear was that no one has to have.a cookout to
go to Princess Margaret Hospital or govern-
_ ment clinics for their average medical needs.
. A form of national insurance is already in place
for them covering all manner of ills. The cook-
outs come into play to raise funds for cata-
strophic illnesses — a’ plan that the FNM was
working on before it was dismissed from gov-
ernment in 2002:— and a plan on which this
governmént also should be concentrating.
Instead they have introduced a i: -alth scheme
that will completely turn on its heac .:ood insur-
ance coverage already in place fer working
Bahamians.
As we have said before, it is untruc to say
that employers do-not care about the health of
‘ their employees. With the mandatory National
Insurance in place, which already provides basic
medical care, there was no compulsion on
employers to show any further interest in health

insurance. But because they did care for their -
employees, most employers took out private -

health plans that they partnered with their
employees. We know at The Tribune that this
insurance has been a godsend for many of our
employees.

Now government comes along with.a second
compulsory insurance scheme. In many of its
statements it has assured the public that this
newest scheme will in.no way interfere with
their private insurance. Those. who have pri-

‘vate insurance — with national insurance and

national health insurance both compulsory —
know that something has to give. And that
something is their private insurance which they
and their doctor control — not some imper-
sonal government board. They also know that

neither they nor their employer will be able to

afford all three.

In his contribution to the debate yesterday
former prime minister Hubert Ingraham made
it clear that this particular Bill was not needed
to deliver health insurance for the uninsured. He
said that if, as Prime Minister Christie had said,
people were dying because there was no nation-
al health insurance, “then people will continue
to die because this Bill is most certainly not
delivering national health insurance.”

In fact, as he pointed out, it is taking free
health care from those groups that already have
it by requiring that many of them contribute
financially to the scheme.

One of yesterday’s speakers pointed out that
the Opposition now supported government’s
proposed Bill. This is not true. Mr Ingraham
made it clear that his party supports health
insurance for all, but not under the plan now
before parliament . However, to get the’ ball
rolling, the Opposition will vote for a start
towards this goal.

If his party is returned to office, Mr Ingraham
said, it is committed to “convening a meeting
with all stakeholders — the privately insured,
the uninsured, and the private and public med-
ical sectors — so as to achieve a consensus on
the best and most effective means of providing
health insurance for all.”

He committed his government — if elected —
“to introducing a universal health insurance
scheme that will take into account the needs
of the people and provide for an appropriate
role for the private sector and for providers of
private health insurance.”

He said that “unless persuaded otherwise, we

in the FNM are inclined to the view that NIB is
the appropriate vehicle by and through which
universal health insurance should be provid-
ed.” ek









Behaviour on plane
made me hang —
my head in shame

EDITOR, The Tribune.

RECENTLY, I once again
had cause to hang my head low

‘in shame as a Bahamian. This

time, as is too often the case, it
came as a result of the disap-
pointing attitude of a group of
Her Majesty’s Prison officers.
On a Bahamasair flight 238
from Orlando to New Provi-
dence, a team of officers used
the pre-flight time to drag the
image of the Bahamas through
the mud by rudely and loudly
talking while the flight atten-
dants attempted to explain the
operation of the plane’s safety
manual.

Throughout this process and,

even prior to it, it seemed as if
the plane had turned into their
very own communal bathroom
— where much of their conver-
sation would have its rightful
place. .

Whereas the armed forces of
the Bahamas are supposed to
have an image that could stand
among the pantheon of other
armed services in the region,
one could not but feel shame
when the five or six officers — in
particular two female offices
and one male — used the pre-
flight seating time to laugh, jeer,
discuss lotto number winnings,
sexual positions and acts better
left to the imagination.

Needless to say this thor-
oughly destroyed any sem-
blance of an enjoyable flight for
the other passengers. Some

sought to throw around their,

position of “officer” as if it were
the pinnacle of personal
achievement — but considering
the brazen attitude portrayed
by-some, it'seemed that they in
fact have succeeded in surpass-
ing their own wildest expecta-
tions: ,
“Rehabilitation and reform”
one officer scoffed sarcastically,

casually summing up the gen-

eral feeling most have about the
Fox Hill Prison. There seems

- not to be enough time to reha-

bilitate an inmate before that
inmate can make a break for it.
How difficult can it be to keep
people from “walking out” of
a prison? But these are ques-
tions for a later date.

But maybe the discomfort of
Bahamasair flight 238 was not
totally to the blame of the offi-
cers. What about the Bahama-
sair flight crew who should have
stepped in and reprimanded the
boisterous lot? But given the
demeanour and size of the pas-
sengers in question, one could
understand why the ladies
would think twice before rep-

rimanding these custodians and

EDITOR, The Tribune.

WE MUST give honour to whom honour is due.

Many may not remember, but I certainly remember when!

Kingsley Poitier won the 1965 IFBB Mr World contest. It was :
a joyous event. I was just a teenager but it was a big time
achievement for a tiny nation such as the Bahamas. Not like _
today when the Bahamas is well known in athletics, the Bahamas
was literally unknown then. So winning internationally meant
more then than now, in terms of the frequency of winners inter- ,
nationally. : :
Let me clarify, a Bahamian named Kingsley Poitier won the
International Federation of Body Builders Mr World contest. ;
That means he was the best Body Builder in the world in 1965. :
I stand to be corrected, but the only other time the Bahamas was °
mentioned winning internationally, was when Sir Durward |
Knowles and Cecil Cook won the gold medal for sailing at the:
Tokyo Olympics. ie
Now, there has beén a calculated effort to highlight certain |
athletes and to support “elite” athletes and'to put the pictures:
of athletes on the wall in the airport which comprise of track and
field athletes, sailors and others. Visitors arriving to the Bahamas -

will see the fine athletes who have achieved the highest awards. | -
A Street was also named in honour of an athlete. Sir Durward: |

Knowles and Cecil Cook are there from 1964 and there is no'
mention made of Kingsley Poitier. Why? Kingsley Poitier is as
much of an athlete as anyone on the wall at the airport. His
achievement is not only equally as important, but as valuable as*
anyone else. i g
Kingsley Poitier is still alive and should be honoured in many ,
ways just like every other athlete who achieved and in some case -

‘less. He is a gentleman and is a family man. He deserves it. His,

flowers must be given while he is alive, otherwise it is useless. -

Unfortunate legal
- divide at GBPA |

_ EDITOR, The Tribune.

I CONTINUE to state in both private and public quarters that

the legal divide at the Grand Bahama Port Authority is most,

unfortunate. It is important that this legal battle does not over-.”

shadow the tremendous contributions made by the Haywards
and St Georges as it relates to the growth and development of
Freeport, Grand Bahama, and the Bahamas. Both families
hold noted chapters in our rich history.

I am humbled and thank God for his given talents that have
afforded me the opportunity to secure a contract as a public rela-
tions consultant to the GBPA. y

While such a contract now exists, it should be noted, contrary
to recent media reports, I am not an official spokesperson for
the GBPA.

However, I will continue to spread the message locally,

nationally, and worldwide. The message is: Despite their now
heralded differences, Sir Jack and Lady Henrietta share a num-
ber of things in common — they love the Bahamas, they remain
committed to the GBPA staff, licencees, and the advancement *
of the quality of life of Grand Bahama residents. Freeport,
and by extension Grand Bahama Island, is still a great place to
buy land, take up r idence and do business. For the people of
our beautiful island this legal storm, like hurricanes, shall too
pass.
The calls were many, the gossip ran high, the mean-spirited
souls cried foul, and the sophisticates who are of the view that
the GBPA cheques belong only to them and their family mem-
bers questioned how a ghetto boy with “imperfections” could
serve as the GBPA's spokesperson.

Thank God, at the very least they said I spoke
well.

I hold a personal and professional obligation regarding the
promotion of Grand Bahama and like many others, I look for-
ward to the end of twisted headlines, bad GBPA press, and a
new beginning guided by Sir Jack's son Rick and the late
Edward's son Henry's loving attitude.

Wild cats
threatening
parrots in
Abaco

WILD cats are still posing
problems for Abaco’s parrot
population, a major feature of
the island’s national park.

Protection of the parrots is
one of the issues under discus-
sion at a series of meetings
being held to decide how to
manage the park.

The meetings have been
scheduled for Marsh Harbour,
Sandypoint, Crossing Rocks
and Cherokee Sound.

“As we have no full-time war-
dens, it is up to the public to
keep an eye on the park and
make sure it serves its purpose,”
said a Marsh Harbour source.

“Feral cats have always been a
danger to the Abaco parrots.
Most are former domestic cats
released into the wild. They feed
on lizards, frogs and young birds.”

TROPICAL

@ By KRYSTEL ROLLE

CORRUPTION only exists
among civil servants because
it has filtered down from the
leaders of the country, Cassius
Stuart claimed yesterday.

The leader of Bahamas
Democratic Movement said
that the effort to root out cor-
ruption must therefore start at
the top.

“What we’re seeing in our
country, particularly in the
Royal Bahamas Defence
Force, is basically just a micro-
aspect of what’s really going
on in our country,” he said.

“If the leadership is -exem-.
plifying corruption, then cor-
ruption will fall through the
ranks and into the entire soci-
ety.”

The new commodore of the

i Defence Force Clifford Scav-

ella declared that.25 per cent
of the Defence Force are “bad
apples” to be weeded out, and
said he is taking aggressive
steps to restore the image of
the force.

Mr Stuart said he supports
the commodore’s efforts, but
added that “when you deal
with corruption you have to
deal with all the persons who
committed crimes against the
state — namely members of par-
liament first.”





E Es mos
@ CASSIUS Stuart

“I always say we deal with
them first because they are the
national leaders, then we can
go and deal with other enti-
ties,” said Mr Stuart, who was
appearing as a guest on Jeff
Lloyd’s show ‘Real Talk’.

He explained that when
Bahamians see that there is



corruption at the top then they
too feel that they can get away
with corruption.

“Because if the politicians
are doing it, if the national

. leaders are doing it, then why

can’t they do it? It has to start
at the top.

“Everything rises and falls
on leadership and once we get
that right, then we’ll be able to
clean up everything else
around us. ;

“But if we can't clean up par-
liament then we won’t be able
clean up anywhere else,” he
said.

“We have been this way for
so long that people are almost
beginning to accept corruption
from members of parliament
and that is very frightening. We

have reached to the point,

where we accept corruption,”
Mr Stuart said.

“We are trying to line up the
rest of the body while the head
is not straight. How many
members of parliament violat-
ed our law and have not been
brought before court?” he

asked. “We have a hypocrisy.

in our system and we have to
straighten the head first.”

Nassau grouper closed season gives

the fish a chance for the

Hi By BREEF

FISHERMEN, conservation
groups and people who simply
like to eat fish have reason to
rejoice this winter. The announce-
ment by Leslie Miller, Minister
of Agriculture and Marine
Resources of the extension of the

Nassau grouper closed season, to
run from December 1, 2006 until
February 28, 2007, is a major step
to ensuring that we will always
have Nassau grouper in the
Bahamas.

During the closed season the
taking, landing, possessing, scll-
ing, offering for sale or purchasing

the Nassau grouper anywhere in

the Bahamas is prohibited.

The Bahamas Reef Environ-
ment Educational Foundation
(BREEF), and other organisa-
tions such as the Bahamas
National Trust, the Nature Con-
servancy, Friends of the Envi-
ronment, Abaco, Andros Con-

LEER too





PRICE INCLUDES: FIRST SERVICE FREE
LICENSE & INSPECTION

servancy and Trust and the San
Salvador Living Jewels Founda-
tion have advocated protecting
the Nassau grouper at the time

~ of year when it is most vulnerable,

and protecting the special places
in the ocean where the fish gath-
er to spawn. These groups
applaud the government’s deci-
sion to implement this year’s
closed season.

Although it is called the “Nas-
sau” grouper, this same species
of fish, (Epinehephelus striatus),
is found all around the Caribbean.
Several other species of grouper
also exist in the Bahamas, includ-

“ing the tiger grouper, the black

grouper, the yellowfin grouper
(rockfish) and the red and rock
hinds.

The Nassau grouper is easily
distinguished by five vertical dark
bars on side of body and black
“saddle” at base of tail. Nassau
groupers are able to change their
body colour from dark to light to
camouflage themselves.

Because all.groupers have a
similar body shape, the Depart-
ment of Marine Resources insists
that all other groupers that are
caught during the closed season
must be landed with the head and
skin on so that they can be easily
identified.

Stocks

Nassau grouper stocks have
declined precipitously through-
out the Caribbean region, pri-
marily a result of overfishing and
fishing on spawning aggregations.
Stocks of Nassau groupers have

. declined throughout their range,

and are now commercially extinct

’ in places such as Florida, the Vir-

gin Islands, Puerto Rico and the
Dominican Republic.

Globally, the Nassau grouper is
considered to. be an endangered
species but it is nevertheless a
species of ecological, economic
and social importance in the
Bahamas.

Because Nassau groupers gath-
er at predictable places and at
predictable times in the winter
months, they have been targeted
by fishermen. However, catthing
the fish during their reproductive
period threatens the survival of
the species and ultimately the
livelihood of the people who

@ THE Nassau grouper closed season will





run from December 1, 2006 until February 28, 2007

depend on them.
Fishing on aggregations can
produce a high catch in the short
term, but the catch won't last. All
Nassau grouper spawning aggre-
gations are smaller now than they
were in the past, and many are

‘already gone for good.

By giving the fish a chance to
reproduce, without disturbance
from humans, we can ensure that
we have a plentiful supply of Nas-
sau grouper for current and
future generations of Bahamians
to enjoy.

_The Bahamas has been a
regional leader in Nassau grouper
conservation, starting with site-
specific closures around the peak
winter spawning periods in 1998
and 1999. J

Nassau groupers are slow-
growing fish, taking seven years
to reach sexual maturity. There-
fore, we are now reaping the ben-
efits of the closed season that was
first implemented in 1998. We,
our children and our grandchil-
dren will thank us for the fore-

sight and the proactive steps that
we are taking now to protect
these fish stocks for the future.

Scientific evidence strongly
supports the need for the closure. | -
Research into Nassau groupers
around the Bahamas has indicat-
ed that, for most of the year, they
are solitary fish living on the reef.
However, in the winter months
they can travel dozens, if not hun-
dreds, of miles to reach spawn-
ing aggregation sites.

BREFF has been working with .
Dr Craig Dahlgren of the Perry
Institute of Marine Science to tag
Nassau groupers around the Exu-:
ma Sound and track their migra-

‘tions. Several fish have been

taggéd with acoustic “pingers”
implanted inside their abdomen.

' Presence
When a tagged fish swims past

‘an acoustic receiver, its presence

is detected and its movement can
be tracked. There are now an
array of acoustic. receivers in the
Exuma Sound that enable tagged
fish to be monitored swimming
all the way from the northern
Exuma chain to aggregation sites
as far south as Long Island.

This ongoing research indicates
that fishing on a spawning aggre-
gation would not only negatively
impact the number of potential
fish that will be able to be caught
in seven years’ time, but would
also reduce the number of fish
living on reefs a long way away
from the spawning site.

The closed season for t17 } tas-
sau grouper is an importan. Wey
to address this problem. ‘ie
future looks bright; all but one of
the fish that was tagged in the
Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park

-last year, successfully made the

migration south to a spawning
site, and returned safely to the
park. .

The tagged grouper that disap-

peared while on its spawning
migration reminds us that proper
enforcement is critical. It is imper-
ative that the closure is enforced
both for Bahamian and foreig
fishermen.
. The public can play an active
role too — by choosing to support
fishermen by purchasing fish
aside from the Nassau grouper
during the closed season and by
supporting Bahamian marine
conservation.

We have the choice of either
not having Nassau grouper tem-
porarily while the season is’
closed, or eventually not having
any Nassau grouper at all. 3

SCHOOLCHILDREN in

. Abaco are playing an active role

in helping to preserve the
island’s marine life.

They are making concrete
reef balls as part of a conserva-
tion scheme initiated by Friends
of the Environment.

The reef balls, made in
moulds, are laid on the seabed
to create artificial reefs and pro-
tect local fish stocks.

“It’s something we’re really
excited about,” an Abaco resi-
dent said yesterday.

“It means the children devel-
op a real interest in the envi-
ronment, which is important for
Abaco’s economic develop-
ment.”

About 100 reef balls are to
be laid off Abaco’s shoreline,
with children managing to pro-

L is interesting to hear

rich people accuse rich

- people of not caring about the
poor.

For example, Prime Minister
Perry Christie and many of his
cabinet ministers are rich. Both
in terms of their incomes as well
as net worth, these people are
rich.

Quite a number of them are
millionaires - that is, when you
assess their net worth, it exceeds
one million dollars.

Few, if any, now live in any
low-income area and few, if any,
live in modest homes. Again,
most of our cabinet ministers
are rich.

We would know better just

how rich they are if they obeyed






The children at the Elizabeth Estates Children’s Home
recently received a gift from their newest friends in
the neighborhood, Wendy’s. As Wendy’s recently
celebrated the opening of their newest restaurant in
the Seagrapes Shopping Centre in partnership with
the Elizabeth Estates. Children’s Home, part proceeds
of the Grand Opening’s sales were apportioned to the
Home. As requested, the Home was presented with a
brand new fridge and 25 cubic foot freezer to assist
in the operation of the Home. ‘ag Meads

the law and filed and published
their annual financial disclo-
sures, but they have not.

These same rich people call
on other rich people regularly to
support their political causes.
For example, they received mil-
lions of dollars from Mr
Mohammed Harajchi, a rich
foreigner, to fund their 2002
election campaign.

They received millions of dol-
lars more to fund that highly
glamorous 2002 campaign. Pre-
sumably they got these millions
from other rich people.

It is safe to say that rich peo-
ple will again fund their 2007
election campaign, though Mr
Harajchi will likely pass. Some
of PM Christie and his minis-
ters’ most ardent supporters are

rich - some very rich.

They are rich lawyers,
accountants, developers, con-
tractors and business people.

Again, these same rich gov-
ernment politicians secure sig-
nificant contributions from rich
people to assist their political
efforts while in office. Those
sporting tournaments, comput-
ers for community centres, park
programmes and turkey and
ham donations at Christmas
time are not provided at their
personal expense - they get help
from rich people.

For example, one minister
gave out turkeys at Christmas
time and actually had his name
and a rich foreign investor’s
name on the card that went out
with the turkeys!

in other areas of personal inter-
est to them. Scan the newspa-
pers and see with whom they
take most of their photos. They
take them with rich people,
mostly rich foreigners.

Rich foreigners and Bahami-
ans create businesses and pro-
duce jobs which the so-called

“poor” come to hold so that .

they might have a chance to
improve their lives and move

‘from being poor.

Many of these rich people
give to charities and good caus-
es all the time. Look at those

..who give the most generous

scholarships to Bahamian chil-

“dren. Lyford Cay, City Markets,

Tomlinson Foundation and the
Grand Bahama Port Authority
are among some that do. These
same. rich people who do good
for the poor are hailed by rich
cabinet ministers as generous
when they have their photo ops.

When natural disasters like
hurricanes devastate our islands,
who do our rich cabinet minis-
ters look to for recovery money
to help the poor? They look to
rich people, be they doctors,
lawyers, Indians or chiefs. In
fact, rich people gave PM
Christie and his government
some $5 million for the hurri-
canes that struck over the last
several years. These rich peo-
ple are still looking for a proper
accounting of the funds but they
gave nonetheless.

Aw: these rich peo-
ple who do good for

the poor are many doctors. If
the poor cannot afford health-

care, then who has been giving

it to them over the many
decades that they have been in
this country? Do the poor go
to rich politicians for medical
services when they are sick?

MONTAGU

VAR GO

Lot ANG

Absolutely not! They go to doc-
tors, many of whom extend
their services free of charge and
without fanfare. By the way,
many of these doctors are rich,
just like the rich cabinet minis-
ters who accuse them of being
uncaring.

The point here is that it is
highly curious that rich people,
like some of our cabinet minis-
ters, who say they are trying to
do good for the poor, seem to
suggest that other rich people
who raise questions about their
efforts do not care about the
poor.

They seem to suggest that
they are the only rich people
who can care about the poor.
That is absurd! The fact is that it
is a political ploy by these gov-
ernment politicians to engage
in class warfare in the hopes of
demonising people who have
legitimate questions about the
way things are being done with
their public funds and in their
name.

[secs this has been a
strategic political
approach of the PLP for
decades. In their approach to

life, there is often black versus
white with the white never right;
there is rich against the poor,
with the rich always evil; there
are those who are for God and
those who aren’t for God and
they, the PLP, are always the
former although their actions
may suggest otherwise. And
finally, there is us against them.

Those who will bear the bur-
den of funding any government
programme should not be
demonised for questioning how
the programme will operate.

Although these people may
be predominantly rich, they
should not be scandalised by
other rich people. Goodness has
nothing to do with being rich
or poor. It has to do with having
those values that promote a
willingness to do good and
recognising the dignity of oth-
ers.

i

THE TRIBUNE

The paradox of rich Cabinet ministers

Health Insurance debate, he
‘accused me of saying that the
National Health Insurance was
a tax. He spoke untruth. I nev-
er said or wrote any such thing.

He probably got some bogus
report from one of his cronies
who mistook Cassius Stuart for
me. It was Mr Stuart who said
that the NHI was a tax when
asked about it by Jeff Lloyd on
his show the same morning Mr
Miller was shooting off his
mouth. *

For the record, I do not
believe that the National Health
Insurance is an income tax or a
tax in the strict public finance
sense of the word. It is not a tax
principally because it proposes
to provide a specific benefit in
return to the payers of the fee
and in this way does not meet
the strict definition of a tax.

Taxes are compulsory pay-
ments levied by governments
to support their general opera-
tions and that is not what the
NHI purports to do. It might
be a payment from income but
it is not an income tax.

A ssitionaty while
.shooting off his
mouth, Mr Miller went on to
say that I increased the gas tax.
What Mr Miller will not say is
that more than 50 per cent of
the present gas tax was applied
by the PLP and that if he finds
the tax so burdensome, he
should have the testicular forti-
tude to do something about it.

He and his government have
the power to roll back any tax
they want. Finally, when the last
tax increase was imposed by the
former administration, gas price
at the pumps never exceeded

Since his administration came
to office, gas prices have
reached almost $5. If the last
gas tax increase did not push
gas price to anywhere near $5
and it has increased to that
under his administration, why.
shouldn’t Bahamians blame
him? For all his talk, Bahamians
still ache. That’s effectiveness
for you!

Tribune Freeport Reporter

FREEPORT - The alarm-
ingly low occupancy levels at
Grand Bahama hotels are cause
for great concern and anxiety
among residents in Freeport,
according to former cabinet
minister Zhivargo Laing.

Mr Laing criticised govern-
ment and the minister of
tourism for allowing such a
“troubling” situation to come
about by failing to adequately
promote Grand Bahama and
get more rooms filled, especial-
ly during the holiday season.

According to reports, some
resorts on the island are pro-
jecting poor occupancy as low
as 30 per cent, while others are
showing slightly better rates
between 50 and 70 per cent.

“It has to be alarming for
Grand Bahama to watch Exu-
ma with its very robust tourism
occupancy levels to the tune of
90 to 100 per cent, and New
Providence with occupancy lev-
els of 80 and 90 per cent, to
have the hotels in Grand
Bahama with occupancy levels
at 30 per cent,” Mr Laing said.

Mr Laing, the FNM candi-
date for Marco City, said it is
disturbing after almost two
years of promises by govern-
ment that there is still no pur-
chase of the closed Royal Oasis
Resort.

The World Investment Hold-
ing Group, the potential buyer,
is in the process of acquiring
the distressed Royal Oasis prop-
erty for $40 million from
Lehman Brothers.

The government had expect-
ed the deal to close in October,
but nothing has as yet materi-
alised.

Mr Laing said he thinks

to listen to Mr Wilchcombe talk
about the fact that the delay in
the Royal Oasis purchase was
actually about their doing the
necessary due diligence, when,
in fact, we have heard on sev-
eral occasions now over the last
two years, Mr Wilchcombe or
some other member of the gov-
ernment say that purchase was
imminent.

He added that the govern-
ment only backpedalled after
the Port Authority expressed
reservations about the sale.

' “JT might also remind the min-

ister that it was under his gov-.

ernment’s watch that Isle of
Capri came to Grand Bahama,
and we now understand that
that group is getting ready to
leave.

Virgin Atlantic Group came to
the Bahamas, and they are no

Mr Harper has announced

NEW YORK -—- The
Bahamas could see an increased
number of Chinese. and Indian
tourists if efforts by the Min-
istry of Tourism to ease the path

for visitors from these countries ,

to reach the Bahamas are suc-
cessful. rt

Efforts to entice these under-
represented Asian demograph-
ics to the Bahamas are in the
process of being stepped up by
the Ministry of Tourism, which
believes that both countries are
“significant potential markets,”
said Tourism Director Gener-
al Vernice Walkine. |

there is a growing class of afflu-
ent young consumers who the
ministry is confident would
"love" what the Bahamas has
to offer, she said.

"We are absolutely con-
vinced that China and India are
significant potential markets for
the Bahamas and we want to
make sure that we're in a posi-
tion to take advantage of that
and get in the door, so to speak,
before everybody else does,"
she said.

To this end, in China particu-

larly at this stage, the ministry
has been working "on parallel
tracks" to remove the primary
impediments to these persons
reaching Bahamian resorts.

Representatives from the
ministry have visited the coun-
try three times — meeting with
various tour operators and air-
lines “with a view to moving in
a positive direction,” said Ms
Walkine.

“One of the issues.is the long
turn around time for visas.
We're working hand in hand

with the Ministry of Foreign
Affairs to improve that," she
said. j

The DG noted that the open-
ing of the Bahamian High Com-
mission in Beijing, China, has
already helped to increase the
number of visitors from that
country, by providing a “specif-
ic place that people can go to
submit their application.”

However, she added that the
slow processing pace remains
the "number one complaint"
from Chinese airlines and tour
operators.

Slightly further behind in
terms of the process, the real
potential of the Indian market
will be assessed by Ms Walkine
personally when she travels to
the country for the first time in
February, she said.

Pointing to the growth of
technology in India as an indi-
cator of the increasing affluence
among certain sectors, Ms
Walkine said: "These young
people have.a lot of disposable

income and they're looking for.

the places to go."

She added that she has been
made to understand that the
beaches and shopping offered
by the Bahamas are — for Indi-
ans as with the Chinese — an
attractive prospect.

Alongside the visa issue, the
question of ensuring that air-
lines provide "good connect-
ing service” is also paramount,
she said, so that interested
potential visitors are not dis-
couraged by difficult travel
itineraries.

S12m ad

campaign
launched

@ By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter

NEW YORK - The Ministry
of Tourism has launched its
most expensive advertising cam-
paign ever in the US — at a cost
of $12 million — in an effort to

create a new image for the -

Bahamas as a tourism destina-
tion.

However, if it is to be as

effective as it could be, there -

needs to be an attitudinal shift
among many of those working
in the tourism industry, claimed
Vernice Walkine, director gen-
eral of Tourism.

Speaking at the campaign's
launch on Tuesday, Ms Walkine
said that the ministry realised
that the Bahamas can no longer
take it for granted that visitor
numbers will remain high, after
finding itself in a new competi-
tive environment.

To confront this reality, a
multi-pronged approach has
been initiated that will not only
require a unique advertising
campaign abroad to re-brand
the Bahamas, but also a domes-
tic campaign to improve the
quality of service offered to vis-
itors, she said.

Both elements are necessary
if the country is to maintain the
edge over its competitors, who
are multiplying, and entering
the market making very simi-
lar offers to tourists as the
Bahamas traditionally has, she
explained.

To this end, she and other
ministry officials chose New
York — one of the Bahamas pri-
mary markets for visitors, and a
major media centre — to launch
the "Bahamavention" campaign
on Tuesday.

The "totally unique" multi-
media campaign will hit US
cable television, print media,
Internet and the sides of 570
New York subway trains next
Monday.

It is anticipated the drive will
lift the Bahamas out of the "sea
of sameness" that currently pre-

entry using their new passport.

Ms Walkine's comments fol-
lowed the launch of the min-
istry's new advertising cam-
paign, "Bahamavention" in
front of Bahamian and US press
in New York.

According to Ms Walkine,
though the launch of the new
$12 million campaign, which
will incorporate advertising on
cable television, in the print.
media, on the Internet, and all
over New York on 570 subway
trains — was not planned
specifically to counteract the
effects of the regulations, it has
turned out to be "very timely"
in light of the US government's
decision to go ahead and
impose the new requirements.

"It wasn't intended that-way.
but the timing was to our
advantage," she said.

A message informing poten-
tial travellers about the need for
a passport has also been includ-
ed in the advertising campaign.

The new regulations, as set out
in the Western Hemisphere Trav-
el Initiative -,;set to come into
force on January 23, 2007 - will
require all US citizens travelling
to the Bahamas, among other
destinations, to- have a passport to
be able to re-enter the US.

Questioned as to what would
happen to those who were
allowed to leave the US without
a passport, only to find that they
were not allowed back in the
country, Ms Walkine stressed
that much is being done to
ensure that this possibility does
not become a reality.

"The airlines are absolutely
going to be checking because if
they allow someone to leave
without a passport the fines are
horrific," said Ms Walkine, not-
ing that fines of about $60,000
may be introduced.

vails among all "sun, sand and
sea" destinations, said Walkine.

"Though it is a risk, we see it
as a calculated risk," she said
of the “radical” campaign.

Though not intentional, she
claimed, the campaign will
begin to take effect in time to
play an alleviating role in any
"potential fallout" from the new
passport requirements sched-
uled to come into force in Jan-
uary 2007.

Furthermore, it will pre-empt
the completion of dozens of
new resorts, not only in New
Providence, but across the
country's 700 islands in the next,
five years.

The concept behind the
tongue-in-cheek campaign is
that friends and family will
intervene — or "Bahamavene"
— in the lives of loved ones who
they diagnose as being too
stressed-out and in need of a
rehabilitating vacation that only
the Bahamas can offer.

In a series of five quirky tele-

‘vision commercials to be aired

beginning December 11, US
audiences will see formerly
depressed, anxious and "dan-
gerously untanned" characters
happy and proclaiming how
they were "cured" by their
Bahamavention.

In another first, the adverts
will show "real Bahamians"
inviting visitors to the country's
700 islands, said Walkine,
adding that she was particularly
proud of this aspect of the cam-
paign.

"We're really using Bahami-
ans in a significant way in our
campaign. This is not just back-
ground, this is not just as extras,
we're using Bahamians in
speaking roles, actually being
the person inviting those who
need a Bahamavention,” she
said.

. The domestic campaign — rid-
ing on the back of the new
dvertisement launch —. will be
initiated in earmést in early 2007,
with the aim of effecting the
attitudes of some of those work-
ing in the tourism sector in the
country, and in the process,
moving towards a reputation
for superior service becoming
a réality in the Bahamas, said
Walkine.



According to Ms Walkine,.

this second prong of the min-
istry's focus — which she admits
will not be easy to achieve ~ will
be a major talking point at the
National Tourism Conference,
taking place from January 21 -
26, 2007.

was brought before Senior Justice Anita Allen yesterday for
what was supposed.to have'been an arraignment.
Bridgewater was, however, not represented by a lawyer and
Justice Allen was wary of this. While noting Bridgewater’s alle-

judge decided not to proceed with the matter until Bridgewater

had obtained counsel.

The matter was adjourned to Wednesday, December 13.
Justice Allen noted that Bridgewater would be afforded coun-

Sea tragedy victims

up Ms. Dawkins said she lost two

sisters in the accident, Bren-
damae Ellis Smith and Brun-
nell Smith Leslie, and that since
the incident she has had to care
for her deceased sister’s nine

children.

Ms. Smith adkitowledged that
she received assistance from
government in the aftermath of
the tragedy, but since then, gov-
ernment has given her no help.

According to Ms. Dawkins:
“After the accident, ‘Mother’
Pratt was giving us a little assis-
tance, but children have to live
everyday and eat everyday.”

Ms Dawkins said that gov-
ernment should have taken
responsibility for assisting the
family members of victims
because they lack the finances
to fight for compensation before
the courts.

Mr Tennyson Leslie also told
The Tribune how he lost his
right leg in the collision.

He said: “That night I was
going away with my family to
have a nice time with my wife
and friends. I woke up in the
morning around 1 am with my
right leg off and when I looked
around I saw that my wife’s
head was crushed up.”

When Mr Leslie and Ms
Dawkins confronted Minister
Pratt about their concerns, the
minister said that a& far as she

not as yet comment on their sit-
uation.

- Mrs Pratt told the frustrated
victims that they both lived in
her constituency and they could
have brought their concerns to
her personally instead of
demonstrating in front of the
House of Assembly.

Mr Leslie said he does live
across the street from Minister
Pratt, however he suggested:
“She is a Christian, a pastor,
and a Minister and I am a victim.
who has lost my leg in a tragic
accident that every one knows
about and even if I.did not,
come to her, she should have
asked me how I was doing, but
she never did that.”

Mr Leslie also claimed that
Prime Minister Christie pledged

_at his wife’s funeral that he

would ensure that the victim’s
families would be “sorted out”,
but he continued, “up to now .
all we’ve heard are talks.”

Social Services Minister
Melanie Griffin also said that
the matter was still before the
courts, but she told the victims
to contact the Ministry of Social
Services for “immediate assis-
tance” because the government
was not in the business of sitting
back and allowing its citizens to
suffer. -

The victims told The Tribune
that they were not satisfied with
the ministers’ responses and.
that they would continue’ to
demand assistance because
they have “no one else to turn
to.”

TRACES of the radioactive

stadium that hosted a soccer
game attended by a key fig-
ure in the probe of the fatal
poisoning of former Russian
spy Alexander Litvinenko, a

nium-210 in his body.

The radiation found at the
stadium was “barely
detectable” and posed no pub-
lic health risk, said Katherine
Lewis, spokeswoman for the
Health Protection Agency.

ABC News reported that
British detectives had identi-
fied Lugovoi as a prime sus-
pect in the poisoning. The
report cited an unidentified
senior British official.

Alexander Goldfarb, a
friend of Litvinenko’s, said he
doubted that Lugovoi played
a role in the killing.

“T frankly doubt that he was
the hit man because hit men
are usually people hiding in

the dark,” Goldfarb told the »

AP. “I think it’s one of his

> associates, I think he was used

unawares ... Now his life is in
danger because he knows a
lot.”

An Italian security expert
who met Litvinenko on the
day he fell ill was released

from a London hospital .

Wednesday after showing no
signs of radiation poisoning.

Mario Scaramella had test-
ed positive for polonium-210,
but University College Hos-
pital spokesman Ian Lloyd
said the Italian had been dis-
charged and was in good
health:

The. Health Protection

Agency has been tracking a

number of sites found to be
contaminated with polonium,
including a sushi bar and a
hotel Litvinenko visited the

_ day he reported feeling sick.

The sushi restaurant said
Wednesday it would reopen
in the new year and that its
staff had been given a clean
bill of health.

On Tuesday, Russian Pros-
ecutor-General Yuri Chaika
said that his office would fully
cooperate with British inves-
tigators, but all figures in the
case would be questioned by
Russia prosecutors in the
presence of the British HT
cers.

On his deathbed, iwi:
nenko, a strong critic of the
Russian government, blamed
President Vladimir Putin for,
the poisoning. The Kremlin
has vehemently denied the

_ accusations.

Lugovoi, who had become a
businessman, has said that he
knew Litvinenko for a decade.
He said Litvinenko had con-
tacted him from London
about a year ago with some
business-related proposals,
and that they had met inter-
mittently in London since
then.

Lugovoi traveled to London
three times during the month
before Litvinenko’s. death and
met with Litvinenko four
times, according to Russian
media.

Thailand is
burying last
110 unidentified
victims of
2004 tsunami

@ BANGKOK, Thailand





AUTHORITIES on Wednesday began burying Thai-
land’s last 110 unidentified victims of the 2004 Indian
Ocean tsunami, a little more than two weeks ahead of
the second anniversary of the disaster, according to
Associated Press. :

Workers in antiseptic white coveralls carried the bod-
ies in aluminum coffins out of the mortuary where they
had been kept, then lowered them into concrete vaults
in trenches dug at a special new cemetery for the
unidentified victims.

The cemetery is near the resort town of Khao Lak in
Phang Nga province, which was the area in Thailand
most affected by the tsunami. It will be officially inau-
gurated on Dec. 26 to mark the disaster’s second
anniversary.

‘Nitinai Sornsongkkram, the cemetery manager, said
48 bodies were buried Wednesday, and the rest would
be laid to rest on Thursday and Friday. Buddhist, Mus-
lim and Christian ceremonies were conducted before
the burials.

The tsunami killed more than 5,400 people along
Thailand’s Andaman Sea coast and more than 216,000
people in 12 countries.

Police have said that before Wednesday, some 300
unidentified bodies had been buried since October,
each grave labeled with a registration number. Police
collected DNA samples of all the bodies for possible
future identification, said police Col. Khemmarin Has-
siri, chief of Thailand’s tsunami victim identification
center.

Most of the unidentified victims were Asian, many of
them thought to be migrant workers from Myanmar.

Nitinai said 97 bodies remain that have been identi-
fied but not claimed: 22 Thais, 73 Myanmar nationals,
one Nepalese and one Turk. No decision has been made.
about whether or when they might be buried.

There are another 349 Thais and dozens of foreigners
who were reported missing during the tsunami and are
stil] unaccounted for, he said.

Shiites bury victim
of clashes; army
commander warns
Lebanon unrest
could spiral

@ BEIRUT, Lebanon

SHIITE Muslims on Tuesday
buried a man killed in street
clashes in a Sunni Muslim neigh-
borhood as Lebanon’s army
commander warned the military
may not be able to contain fur-
ther protests linked to the coun-
try’s tense political standoff,
according to Associated Press.

Army commander Gen.
Michel Suleiman urged politi-

cians to.compromise, according.

to comments quoted by several
Beirut ‘newspapers.

After another night of unrest-

in the capital, Prime Minister
Fuad Saniora warned the situa-
tion could get out of control.
“No one can impose control
on the streets and this has been
proven,” he told hundreds of
supporters who converged
throughout the day on his office
complex, which was ringed by

‘ barbed wire, combat troops and

riot police.

Outside, thousands of oppo-
sition protesters were gathered
near Saniora’s offices.and in sev-
eral other downtown squares in
yet another evening of rallies
aimed at bringing down the gov-
ernment. Many have been
camped out near the prime min-
ister’s headquarters since Fri-
day.

In a new tactic Tuesday night, .

they aimed two powerful flood-
lights at the government com-
plex. Troops installed more
barbed wire and other fortifica-
tions.

Lebanon’s political con-
frontation breaks down on dan-
gerous sectarian lines. The U.S.-
backed government is supported
largely by Sunnis, while the
opposition — led by the pro-
Syrian Hezbollah — enjoys wide
support among Shiites.
Lebanon’s Christians are split
between the two camps. Hezbol-
lah is demanding the formation
of a new government giving it

and its allies a larger share of |

power.

The standoff shows no sign of
waning despite calls from the
two sides for dialogue to resolve
their differences. The Arab




League secretary general has
visited to try to help, as did Jor-
dan’s foreign minister. Egypt’s
Beirut envoy also has been mak-
ing the rounds.

After several days of trading
accusations in the media, rival
Lebanese leaders opened direct
channels. A Sunni scholar in the
opposition went to the govern-
ment headquarters to discuss
ideas on resolving the crisis and
the government gave him its
own proposals, including the
‘possible expansion of the cur-
rent Cabinet to satisfy opposi-
tion demands, youth and sports
minister Ahmed Fatfat told
reporters.

Shiite leaders tried to put the
lid on the boiling sectarian ten-
sion and prevent revenge attacks
after the killing of 21-year-old
Shiite protester Ahmed Mah-
moud, who was shot while walk-
ing Sunday with other protesters
through the Sunni neighbor-
hood of Qasqas. Twenty one

_ people were wounded in the
violence.

-_ Coffin

In a Shiite district not far from

the shooting scene, Mahmoud’s ©

comrades from the Shiite Amal
party and relatives took turns
carrying his coffin. About 2,000
people, many holding Lebanese
and green Amal flags, marched
behind. A band played martial
music. Some of the Shiites beat
their heads with their hands in a
traditional sign of mourning.

The funeral march. made its
way to the Rawdat al-Shahidein
cemetery, where Sheik Abdul-
Amir Kabalan,.a senior Shiite
cleric, led the prayer over the
coffin amid wails of relatives and
calls of “God is great.”

“It is (religiously) prohibited :

for a Shiite to kill a Sunni, a
Sunni to kill a Shiite, a Druse
to kill a Shiite; a Shiite to kill a
Druse and a Christian to kill a
Muslim,” said Kabalan, deputy
leader of the Supreme Shiite
Council, the religious governing
body of the 1.2 million Shiites,
Lebanon’s largest sect. “It is

prohibited to fight each other, to
provoke and curse each other.”

Legislator Ayoub Hemayed, a .
senior member of Amal, a
major Hezbollah ally, urged sup-
porters to exercise restraint.

“We will not be dragged into
sedition. ... We are called upon
to remain one hand and unit-
ed.”

The calls to ease sectarian ten-
sion came amid warnings from
the army commander that the
trouble could get out of control
despite the deployment of thou-
sands of soldiers.

“The absence of political solu-

tions, along with the recurring

security incidents, particularly
those with a sectarian tinge,
drain the army’s resources and
weaken its neutrality,” Suleiman
was quoted by several newspa-
pers as saying.

“This weakness will make the
army unable to control the situ-
ation in all areas of Lebanon,”
he said.

The remarks were exception- -
al in that army officers are not:
allowed to make political state-
ments. A senior military official
declined to confirm or deny the
comments.

The army issued no statement
rebutting them.

Troops and armored cars
have taken up positions in vari-
ous parts of Beirut, particularly
around Saniora’s office complex.
Soldiers were also on duty in
the Sunni and mixed neighbor-
hoods where nightly riots with
sticks, bottles and sometimes

. gunfire have occurred.

The sectarian tension in the
Cabinet began to escalate last
month when six pro-Hezbollah
ministers resigned after Saniora
and the anti-Syrian majority in
parliament rejected the group’s
demand for a new national uni-

ty government that would effec-

tively give it and its allies veto
power.

Hezbollah says it will contin-
ue its protest campaign until
Saniora agrees to step down.
The prime minister — embold-
ened by Arab and U.S. support

_— has vowed to stay in

office.

ower surge,
glue-like material
may pose shuttle
launch problems

@ CAPE CANAVERAL

CONTINUALLY worsen-
ing weather forecasts and two
late-breaking technical wor-
ries created uncertainty
Wednesday about the planned
night launch of the space shut-
tle Discovery, according to
Associated Press.

NASA _ meteorologists
downgraded the chance for
good weather at the scheduled
9:35 p.m. EST Thursday
launch time to only 40 percent
with low, lingering clouds
more likely than not to pre-
vent liftoff.

“The ivrecast has trended
toward the worse,” NASA
shuttle weather officer Kathy
Winters said Wednesday
morning.

Along with concern about
the weather, engineers
planned to spend much of
Wednesday trying to decide
whether the two technical
problems — a brief power
surge and concerns about a
glue that helps protect seals
in the solid-fuel rocket boost-
ers — were minor or major.

It was too early to tell if
these would postpone Dis-
covery’s launch, launch inte-
gration manager LeRoy Cain
said at a Tuesday evening
news conference.

- Shuttle Test Director Jeff
Spaulding said in a Wednes-
day morning news conference
that he expected the power
surge issue to be cleared as
not a problem later in the day.
The split-second. power

surge occurred early Tuesday
when power was about to be
switched from the shuttle’s
launch platform to Discovery
itself. Early tests found that
the shuttle’s main engines,
boosters and external fuel
tank were OK after the power
burst, but NASA was not say-
ing the same about Discovery,
Cain said.

Concern about booster-seal
glue involved adhesive that
helps connect segments of the
solid rocket boosters.

Routine tests found that the
adhesive used on some of the
joints in the booster segments
might not be as strong as it
should be, but the problem
seemed to be minor, NASA
spokeswoman June Malone
said. The adhesive is primari-
ly designed as a thermal bar-
rier to protect the seal but is
one of many systems that keep
hot gas from escaping and is
not one of the main ones, she
said.

“The adhesive does not pro-
duce the seals,” Malone said.
The seal is produced mostly
by the pressure of the seg-
ments themselves, she said.

As NASA wrestled with the
technical issues, the weather

. outlook continued to get
.gloomier.

Each time meteorologists
updated their weather fore-
casts this week, the chance for
clear enough weather for a
launch dropped, going from
80 percent to 70 percent to 60
percent and, on Wednesday,
40 percent.

Winters said the main con-
cern was low-hanging clouds
associated with a slowly mov-
ing weather front.

If the clouds block Thurs-
day’s attempt, the weather will
get only worse on Friday and
Saturday. Because of project-
ed high wind, forecasters gave
NASA only a 30 percent
chance on Friday and a 40
percent chance for Saturday.
The weather gets more
promising after that with
Tuesday being the best day,

. Winters said.
NASA has four launch,

opportunities over five days, if
need be, to start the 12-day
mission.

. Aside from those potential
problems and the concern
about worsening weather,
NASA was marching toward
its first nighttime launch in
four years.

“We’re on track and on tar-
get for Thursday,” Cain said.

More lives lost in Iraq after

ortar attack, suicide bombing

@ BAGHDAD, Iraq

A MORTAR attack killed
at least eight people and
wounded dozens in a sec-
ondhand goods market
Wednesday in a shelling fol-
lowed closely by a suicide
bonibing in the Sadr City
Shiite district of the capital,
police said, according to
Associated Press.

Two rounds landed and
exploded in the Haraj Mar-
ket in a mixed Shiite-Sunni
area in northern Baghdad,
said police officers Ali
Mutab and Mohammed
Khayoun, who provided the
casualty totals.

About 25 minutes later, a
suicide bomber on a bus in
Sadr City detonated explo-
sives hidden in his clothing,
killing two people and
wounding 15, police 1st Lt.

It appeared to be the first
attack by suspected Sunni

the Iraq war began more
than three years ago. —

report, portions of which
were obtained by The Asso-
ciated Press.

The report called for the
Bush administration to try to
engage Syria and Iran in
diplomacy as part of an
effort to stabilize Iraq and
allow withdrawal of most
combat troops by early 2008.

The report warned that if
the situation continues to
deteriorate, there is a risk of
a “slide toward chaos (that)
could trigger the collapse of
Iraq’s government and a
humanitarian catastrophe.”

(Some Iraqis, while critical
of U.S. strategy in Iraq, said
they feared any new policy
would lead to more suffer-
ing for their country.

“They (U.S officials) are
defeated in Iraq. So they are
trying to seek for an outlet to
get out of their plight in Iraq.
And I think the outlet will
be at the expense of the Iraqi
people,” Maan al-Obeidi, a
professor and political ana-
lyst at al-Nahrain University
in Baghdad, told AP Televi-
sion News.

Statement

Falah:.Shanshal, a Shiite
lawmaker, said 115 of parlia-
ment’s 275 legislators have
signed a statement rejecting
the U.N. Security Council’s
vote to extend the mandate
of the 160,000 multinational
forces in Iraq for another
year, beginning Jan. 1.

At the time, Prime Minis-
ter Nouri al-Maliki said one
of his government’s priori-
ties was to assume full
responsibility for Iraq’s secu-
rity, but that it needed more
time.

“We demand to set a
timetable for the withdrawal
of the these forces from
Iraq,” a statement by the
lawmakers said. They have
made similar protests before
without any result.

Al-Maliki persisted, mean-
while, with efforts to curb
violence, urging university
professors and students to
ignore “the desperate
attempts” of a Sunni Arab
insurgent group to keep
them from class.

The group had sent e-mails
to students and posted signs
at schools and mosques say-

‘ing students should stay

away while it cleanses the
campuses of Shiite death
squads, according to a state-
ment from al-Maliki’s office
late Tuesday.

The government also

' announced the capture of:a

senior aide to Abu Hamza
al-Muhajir, also known as
Abu Ayyub al-Masri, who
took over as leader of al-Qai-
da in Iraq after his predeces-
sor Abu Musab al-Zarqawi
was killed in a U.S. airstrike
in June.

Mouwafak al-Rubaie, the
government’s national secu-
rity adviser, said U.S. and
Iraqi forces captured the
aide, though he did not spec-
ify where or when. He said
three-fifths of al-Qaida in
Iraq’s leadership has now
been captured or killed.

Coalition forces have also
detained several leaders of
Ansar al-Sunnah, an insur-

. gent group allied with al-Qai-
‘da in Iraq, al-Rubaie added.

“The noose is tightening
around Abu Ayyub al-Masri,
and I can say with all confi-
dence that al-Qaida in Iraq is
undergoing a very real lead-
ership crisis,” al-Rubaie said
at a news conference.

The U.S. commaad said a
USS. soldier was killed during
combat in Baghdad on Sun-
day, raising to at least 2,907
the number of members of
the U.S. military who have
died since the beginning of
the war in 2003.

Attacks by suspected Sun-
ni insurgents and Shiite mili-
tias began soon after sunrise
Wednesday.

Brig. Muhssin Qassim al-
Yassiri, head of a security
force that guards the Educa-
tion Ministry, narrowly
escaped an assassination
attempt when gunmen
opened fire on his vehicle in
west Baghdad, killing his dri-
ver, a police officer said on

condition of anonymity -

because he is not authorized
to talk to the media.

Five minutes earlier, a
roadside bomb exploded

near a police patrol in east

Baghdad, but caused no
casualties, police Capt.
Mohammed Abdul-Ghani
said.

A bomb also exploded
near a shop in Iskandariyah,
30 miles south of Baghdad,
killing four people and
wounding 12.°

Six mortar rounds missed a
Sunni mosque, but exploded
near homes, wounding two
civilians in west Baghdad.
Drive-by shootings and mor-
tar attacks north and south
of the capital killed four
Iraqis and wounded five.

U.S. ground and air forces
also conducted a raid target-
ing foreign insurgents near
the Iranian border, killing a
militant who opened fire on
an aircraft, the U.S. com-
mand said.

Outposts

The early morning raid
took place near Khanaqin, a
remote desert area 87 miles
northeast of Baghdad where
USS. forces have helped Iraqi
soldiers set up outposts

designed to stop foreign .

insurgents and their weapons
supplies from crossing into
Iraq.

A coalition aircraft was
leaving the raid when it took
small arms fire from a vehi-
cle below; it returned fire,
destroying the vehicle and
killing its armed insurgent,
the command said.

One suspected militant
also was detained in the raid,

_which resulted in no U.S.

casualties, the statement
said.

A new poll by WorldPub-
licOpinion.org, meanwhile,
found that 75 percent of
Americans believe that in
order to stabilize Iraq the
U.S. should enter into talks
with Iran and Syria, and
nearly 80 percent support an
international conference on
Iraq. fig

A majority also oppose

keeping U.S. forces in Iraq:
indefinitely and instead sup-

port committing. .to..a
timetable for their with-

a

drawal within two years or.
less, the poll found. It was

conducted Nov, 21-29, ques-
tioned 1,326: Americans

nationwide, and had a mar-’

gin of error of 2.7 to 3.9 per-
centage points.

big airports after air traffic
communications breakdown ©

@ SAO PAULO, Brazil

VIRTUALLY all takeoffs
from three major airports in
Brazil were canceled Tuesday
night after an air traffic com-
munications system broke
down, making it difficult for
controllers to communicate
with pilots and creating air
travel chaos, according to
Associated Press.

Brazil’s Civil Aviation
Authority said in a statement
that takeoffs were banned at
the airport in the capital of
Brasilia and in the large central
city of Belo Horizonte. Many
takeoffs were also canceled at
the airport in Sao Paulo that
handles domestic flights,
though the authority allowed
flights to continue on the busy
Sao Paulo-Rio de Janeiro shut-
tle route.

- Authorities were still allow-
ing planes to land at the three
airports and almost all inter-
national flights departing Sao
Paulo, Brazil’s largest city, take
off from a separate airport

‘unaffected by the government

order. But the Belo Horizonte
and Brasilia airports also serve
some international destina-.
tions, and all takeoffs were
prohibited from those airports.

The problem emerged when
a communications system in
Brasilia inexplicably broke
down, reducing the number of
radio frequencies and making

_ it hard for controllers to reach
pilots flying commercial jets in

some of Brazil’s busiest air
traffic corridors, the govern-
ment’s Agencia Brasil news
agency reported.

Federal police discounted
the possibility of sabotage, say-
ing the problem appeared to
be technical and that they
would only investigate if asked
by Brazil’s ‘military, which runs
the air traffic control system
in Latin America’s largest
country, Brazil’s Agencia Esta-
do news agency reported.

The breakdown initially
caused huge delays Tuesday
morning, prompting passen-
gers to sleep on airport floors.
Authorities decided later to
cancel the takeoffs at the three
airports until the communica-

“tions system, is repaired.

The aviation authority said

‘the system could be repaired

by: Wednesday, but warned

travelers to check on flights

Brazil’s most disruptive air

» traffic communications failure
-in history.

, “There has never been a col-

‘lapse like this,” Milton Zua-

authority, told the Web site of

-It also came as most air trav-
elers in Brazil have had to put

up with more than a month of

serious flight delays sparked
by a job protest by controllers.

Following Brazil’s worst-
ever air crash disaster in-Sep-
tember, the controllers began
following regulations to the let-

ter in a protest that signifi- —

cantly slowed operations and is
having a financial impact on

~ Brazilian airlines.

Under the “work to rule”
campaign, they have refused
to handle more than the num-
ber of flights recommended
under international standards
and are strictly observing times
between landings and takeoffs.
The protest came amid com-

Australian
Parliament
lifts ban on
therapeutic
cloning

CANBERRA, Australia

AUSTRALIA’S Parlia-
ment on Wednesday lifted a
four-year ban on cloning
human embryos for stem cell
research despite opposition
from the prime minister and
other party leaders, accord-
ing to Associated Press.

The legislation, which
makes Australia the latest
country to allow cloning for
stem cell research, passed 82-
62 in the House, where Con-
servative Prime Minister John
Howard and other major par-
ty leaders voted against it.
The bill was passed by the
Senate last month.

“In the end you have to
take a stand for some
absolutes in our society,”
Howard told Parliament.
“And I think what we’re talk-
ing about here is a moral
absolute and that is why I
can’t support the legislation.”

Parliament passed Aus-
tralia’s first laws on stem cell
research in 2002, allowing sci-
entists to extract stem cells
from spare embryos intend-
ed for in-vitro fertilization but
preventing cell cloning.

The law passed Wednesday
allows therapeutic cloning,
the splicing of DNA from
skin cells into eggs to produce
stem cells, also known as mas-
ter cells, which are capable of
forming all the tissues of the
human body.

Scientists hope stem cell
research will eventually lead
to treatments for conditions
including Parkinson’s and
Alzheimer’s, as well as spinal
cord injuries, diabetes and
arthritis.

Opponents said the bill
promoted unproven science
that did not respect the
human rights of the unborn.

Defense Minister Brendan
Nelson spoke out in favor of
it, saying his generation had
benefited enormously from
those who pioneered difficult
research and legislation.







Pam hits the right

note at the Hilto

AFTER five years, the
British Colonia] Hilton has a
new entertainment act — and it
will be a hard act to follow.

Bahamian-born musician,
jazz pianist and vocalist Pam
Woods is the new addition to
the Hilton brand in Nassau.

Once just a little girl from
Meadow Street in Bain Town,
Pam is today a seasoned per-
former and well-travelled
Bahamian star.

She has performed the world
over, in places as diverse as
England, Russia, Scotland,
Canada, Bermuda, Jamaica,
United Arab Emirates, Turks
Island and the United States.

And through her travels, Pam
has realised one great thing
through her music — that “peo-
ple are people all over the
world.”

On Saturday, December 2,
Pam had her opening night as
the British Colonial Hilton’s
newest attraction, accompanied
by two equally talented

Bahamian musicians — acoustic °

bass player, Adrian D’ Aguilar
and drummer, Mario Lord.
The trio is happy to join
forces after years of feverishly
wanting to harmonise their

_ skills.

‘The Palm Court Lounge’s
new entertainment at the
British Colonial Hilton will fea-
ture blues and jazz, with Pam
on Wednesdays and Thursdays
from 7pm to 11pm and Fridays
from 8pm until midnight. The
trio. - Pam, Adrian and Mario —
will perform-every Saturday
from 7pm until midnight.

Opal Gibson, director of busi-
ness development at the Hilton,
says the event seeks to offer
something new to the image of

- Hilton entertainment and will

be an upscale, sophisticated

- €nvironment where visitors —

tourists and Bahamians — can
relax, have drinks and share an
evening with friends.

Alex Dawes, the Hilton’s

. director cf operations, believes ,

lege.

the upscale atmosphere creat-
ed by this new group of artists
falls directly in line with what
leisure and business travellers
want at the British Colonial
Hilton.

Pam is in fact no stranger to
Nassau’s Hilton. This will be
the third time since her teenage
years that she has performed at
this venue — the first time being
at the old Wharf Restaurant
where she played at intermis-
sion.

Pam’s sister Tanya is also a
musician, as are a few of her

brothers. In a seven-sibling-

strong family of artistically and
musically inclined parents and
children, Pam was encouraged
to make music since the time
she attended the Government
High School.

She would play the piano at
school assemblies — with con-
structive criticism from her
peers — and on the organ at her
church. It was here that her
future in music became dis-
tinctly visible to those around
her.

Then, Tribune publisher Sir
Etienne Dupuch approached
Pam’s father, Sidney, (a piano
artist in his own right) about
sending his daughter off to col-

Pam described how Sir Eti-
enne’s interest in her future
really got her father to think-
ing about sending his daughter
away for further education.

“In those days, it wasn’t com-
mon for girls to go to college —
they were really trained to be

‘wives and mothers — ‘barefoot

and pregnant’ — as the saying

" goes.”

But Sir Etienne saw some-
thing in Pam that encouraged
her to grab hold of her future.
She said she is “eternally grate-
ful” to him for that.

New retail Gunal to launch



A BUSINESSMAN will open a high-
quality consignment store this weekend,
offering Bahamians: a chance to both
offload their lightly-used items and. to pur-
chase these products at discounted prices.

Craig. Walkine, head of PriceBusters and
operator of the new store, to be called Ka-

' Ching, said the idea for the consignment

store came when he was looking at all the
items still in good condition that were lying
around the house.

Taking an idea from the popular Internet |
re-seller, EBay, Mr Walkine said the store
presents .a “win-win” situation for every-
one, as sellers get to offload items they had |

‘Grossly improper’
letter undermined

—-$3.2m trial involving

attorney’s ex-wife



@ By NEIL HARTNELL accounts.
Tribune Business Editor: The Privy Council ruled: “In

“THE Privy Council has
returned a case involving the —

ex-wife of late Bahamian crim-
inal attorney, Kemuel Shur-
‘land, to the Court of Appeal,
after finding that “a grossly
improper letter” sent to the
judge by the opposing party
had undermined the fairness
of the trial.

_ Supreme Court Justice Stan-
ley Moore had previously ruled
against Dr Anneliese
Diedrichs-Shurland in a trial
involving $3.22 million that was
transferred to her and her
Bahamian company, Excalibur
Investments and Holdings, by
Franz Kohlrautz, a German
national who had worked as
an offshore investment adviser
and later moved to Freeport,
Grand Bahama.

Justice Moore, after a trial
that involved hearings. in
March, April and July 2001,
delivered a December 31, 2002,

verdict, with written reasoris’

later, finding that there was no
agreement that Mr Kohlrautz
would pay Mrs Diedrichs-
Shurland for her services in
looking after the $3.22 million.

The other issue was whether
Mr Kohlrautz had authorised

the distribution from those,

assets of just under the
$360, 009 shown in his bank

Diedrichs-Shurland, the judge
held that there was.never any
intention to make a legally
binding agreement for the pay-
ment of remuneration.«

“He took a very
unfavourable view of Dr
Diedrichs-Shurland, who had

‘fraudulently siphoned off”

trust money for her own pur-
pose and, when called to
account, had set about invent-
ing claims on the funds.

“His finding was that she
was not in law entitled to any
remuneration, and that she had
not been authorised to make
any payments out of the funds
in excess of those admitted by
Mr Kohlrautz. She was
accountable for the balance.”

However, the Privy Council
allowed Mrs Diedrichs-Shur-
land’s appeal that the trial was
unfair as a result of a letter Mr
Kohlrautz wrote to Justice
Moore on December 18, 2001,
some two months after he
reserved his judgement.

In the letter, Mr Kohlrautz
alleged that on February 26,
2001, Mrs Diedrichs-Shurland
and his former wife, with
whom he was going through a
bitter divorce, had “sent three

10-member National Health
Insurance Commission.
However, Dr Nottage insist-
ed that the proposed Bill,
designed to ensure that all
citzens have access to medical
care, was not unconstitution-
al. i
“They tried that with
National Insurance,” he said
of Mr Smith’s claim that he
was likely to file a legal chal-
lenge to NHI.
“It’s not unconstitutional.
The court has ruled on this
with respect to National Insur-
ance. We had the advice of the
Law Review Commissioners
when the bBill was being draft-
ed. The Bill was drafted by the
Law Review Commissione,r

and they would not advise us ,

to do something that was

‘ unconstitutional.”

Dr Nottage added that legal
opinion was a matter that is

_ often tested, and therefore-said

he was not surprised by Mr
Smith’s comments. st at
“If he follows through with
his assertion, then we will have
to see what the court rules,”
he added.
Mr Smith has also argued

that because NHI contributions |

were an income tax, they could
not be levied in Freeport as'a
result of the Hawksbill Creek
Agreement. He drew attention
to the 1955 agreement’s Clause
2, Sub-Clause 8, which stipu-
lates that no taxes — including
income taxes — can be levied

$3.7m fiscal
urplus in
06-07 Q1

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

THE Government generat-
ed a Budget surplus of $3.7
million for the first quarter of
its 2006-2007 fiscal year, it was
revealed yesterday, as.a 20.3
per cent revenue increase out-
paced a 14.6 per cent rise in

“expenditure.

The Central Bank of the
Bahamas, in its monthly review
of economic developments in
October 2006, said the surplus
generated in the three months
to end-September 2006, com-
pared to a $20.3 million deficit
generated a year earlier; was
attributable to a 21.5 per cent
rise in tax receipts sparked by
“buoyancy in economic condi-
tions”. -

_ Collections of fines, forfeits
and administrative fees were
also higher by 19.8: per cent.

13.49 per cent at $118.5 mil-
lion, compared to $104.4 mil-
lion in 2005, while revenues
and grants stood at $326.9 mil-
lion compared to $271.8 mil-
lion in 2005.

Meanwhile, in the hotel sec-
tor, which generates most pri-
vate sector employment in the
Bahamas, average room rates
and hotel occupancy rates were
ahead for the first five months
to May 2006 by 5.1 per cent
and 1.1 per cent respectively.

The Central Bank said this
supported a 10.2 per cent rise
in total room revenues to
$174.6 million, with double dig-
it room revenue increases of
29.3 per cent and 11.3 per cent

in Grand Bahama and the -

Family Island respectively.
New Providence saw a more
modest increase of 7.4 per cent.

The Central Bank said the
year to May “showed ongoing

strengthening in room rev-
enues, due to higher average
room rates and strong growth
in occupied room nights”.

The Central Bank said con- .

struction activity, foreign direct
investment and consumer
demand were continuing to
drive the Bahamian economy,
although oil price rises in the
medium term and “extended”
slowing in the US economy
remained downside risks.
“Prospects for the Bahamian
economy remain generally
favourable, supported by for-
eign investment-led construc-
tion activity in the tourism sec-
tor, with positive spillover
effects for employment and
external reserves,” the Central
Bank said. “The recent easing

_ trend in global oil prices should

alleviate the additional pres-
sure imposed on the external
account by these payments.”

THE National Coalition for
Healthcare Reform has yet to
receive any of the actuarial,
economic or other studies from
the Ministry of Health that will
enable it to properly analyse
the proposed National Health
Insurance (NHI) scheme, a
consultant to the organisation
said yesterday.

Winston Rolle, a former
Bahamas Chamber of Com-
merce president, said he had
already placed numerous calls
to government officials in a bid
to obtain information on the
scheme.

He explained: “The infor-

mation that was requested was
the detailed information on the
plan, such as the actuarial stud-
ies. For us to do a true analysis
of what is proposed, we need
to have that information avail-

_ able to us.”

Plan

The Coalition previously
said that among the informa-
tion essential for it to evaluate
the plan, and which it had not
received, were actuarial studies
on NHI; income and cost pro-
jections for the 10, 15 and 20-
year periods after implemen-
tation; a study on the econom-
ic impact NHI would have; and

Other information yet to be
received was an analysis of the
National Insurance Board’s
(NIB) ability to administer the
NHI scheme, an update on
improvements made to NIB,
and plans to:enhance health
system infrastructure and
administration.

Mr Rolle yesterday told The
Tribune that for the sake of
the Bahamian economy and
this nation’s future well-being,
employment and prosperity,
this nation could not afford to
get NHI and its implementa-
tion wrong.

“T don’t think getting it
wrong is an option for us,” he
said. “The concern is if the
plan is not implemented cor-

‘rectly, what effect is it going

to have on our economy. That
is one of our key concerns. If it
is not done correctly, it could
be devastating.”

Mr Rolle said the ‘Coalition
was “not giving up” in its
attempts to play a role in the
NHI plan’s design and imple-
mentation.

He added that its chairman,
Dr Robin Roberts, had met
with Dr Bernard Nottage, min-
ister of health and national
insurance, and the Coalition
was “trying a number of

avenues” to ensure its advice

and feedback were properly
considered by the Govern-
ment.

US squanders millions
n Katrina recovery

@ By HOPE YEN

Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) —

The government is squander-
ing tens of millions of dollars in
Hurricane Katrina disaster aid,
in some cases doling out hous-
ing payments to people living
rent-free, investigators said
Wednesday.

The Federal Emergency
Management Agency has
recouped less than 1 percent
of the $1 billion that investi-
gators contend it squandered
on fraudulent assistance,
according to the Government

‘Accountability Office. Its
_report shows the disaster relief

.'agency’s struggles, one year

after the deadly storm, to rush
aid to those in need while also
preventing abuse.

Last week, a federal judge
in Washington. ordered the
Bush administration to resume
housing payments for thou-
sands of people.displaced by

‘Katrina. The ruling, which

FEMA is appealing, cited a

. convoluted process for apply-
ing for help.

“Our work shows for indi-
vidual assistance payments, at
least tens of thousands of indi-
viduals took the opportunity

. to commit fraud,” said Grego-

ry Kutz, who works for Con-
gress’ investigative arm. He
said his previous $1 billion esti-
mate of wasted aid was now
“likely understated.”

“I hope FEMA has learned.
the costly lesson and will make
reforms for future disasters,”
Kutz said at a Senate hearing.

In its latest report, the GAO
found that numerous appli-
cants received duplicate rental

aid. In one case, FEMA pro-.

vided free apartments to 10
people in Plano, Texas, while
sending them $46,000 for out-

- of-pocket housing expenses.



Controller



FEMA arranged for a free
trailer to a family in Lacombe,
La., in January, yet kept pro-
viding monthly rental pay-
ments in late January, Febru-

ary and April totaling $5,500.

— a mistake resulting from
poor communication within
the agency, according to the
report.

In addition, $20 million was
wasted on thousands of peo-
ple who claimed the same
property damage from two
hurricanes, Katrina and Rita.
FEMA paid at least $3 million
to more than 500 ineligible for-
eign students in the stricken
Gulf Coast, the report said.

FEMA spokesman Pat
Philbin did not challenge the

findings. He did say the agency .

has sought to upgrade the reg-
istration process and strength-
en its procedures for verifying

. names and addresses.

“FEMA continues to focus
our rebuilding efforts to great-
ly improve our reliability, accu-
racy and response ‘in provid-
ing aid to disaster victims,”
Philbin said. “The agency will
consider and evaluate any new
findings.”

Among the.audit’s findings:

—Even though the GAO
found at least $1 billion in dis-

' aster aid waste, FEMA has
identified about $290 million

in improper payments and
recouped just $7 million.

“Absent effective fraud pre-
vention, once money is
improperly disbursed, the gov-
ernment can only hope to col-
lect pennies on the dollar,”
Kutz said in criticizing
FEMA’s “shoot money out the
door” approach. .

—FEMA could not find
dozens of laptops, printers and
other items that employees
purchased with government-
issued credit cards for Katrina
disaster work. In one case,
FEMA purchased 20 flat-bot-
tom boats, but could not find
two of them and lacked the

_legal titles to any of them.

Sen. Susan Collins, who
heads the Senate Homeland
Security and Governmental
Affairs Committee, lamented
the waste.

“Just think of the additional
relief and rebuilding that could
be accomplished with the mon-
ey lost to fraud, mismanage-
ment and poor decision-mak-
ing,” said Collins, R-Maine.

“We can’t wait for yet anoth-
er disaster to hit and yet anoth-
er round of investigations and
hearings to spotlight once
again the lack of safeguards

and internal controls,” she said. |

Democrats take control of the
Senate in January, said FEMA
will be watched closely for
signs of improvement.

“The record is clear that,
going forward, FEMA has |
much work to do before we
can be confident that it is pro-
viding assistance to those who
are eligible and who need it,
while denying it to those who
do not,” he said.

Smith said.

The receivers, through their
attorney, Brian Simms of
Lennox Paton, have applied to
the Supreme Court for direc-
tions on “the receivership and
management” of the GBPA
and Port Group Ltd.

And in a separate applica-
tion, they are also seeking
directions on whether Justice
John Lyons November 2, 2006,
order “directs or ‘compels the
receivers”, and/or the GBPA
and Port Group Ltd, to pro-
vide the information that was
ordered to be disclosed to the
St George estate and their
attorneys.

The Culmers and Mr Simms
are also seeking directions on
whether they should assist the
GBPA and Port Group Ltd in
complying with Justice Lyons
order.

These moves come in the
continuing battle between Sir
Jack Hayward and the St
George estate over the for-
mer’s claim that he owns 75
per cent of the GBPA and Port

Group Ltd, rather than the
50/50 split most people had
long thought to have been the
case with his late business part-
ner, Edward St George.

The St George estate has
accused Sir Jack and Mr
Babak of mounting “a corpo-
rate coup”, seeking to claim
have their interest in the
GBPA and Port Group Ltd,
and removing them from par-
ticipating in the companies,
acting against their interests.

Bank liqui

FROM page 1B

lion at the end of October
2006, as the Central Bank of
the Bahamas confirmed that
this tightening would slow
down the rapid pace of credit
growth witnessed earlier in
2006.

Excess liquid assets had
declined by $107.39 million in
October, a pace more than
double that of the $46.76 mil-
lion decrease witnessed during
the same month in 2005.

Back then, excess liquidity

in the commercial banking sys-
tem had stood at a healthy
$219.55 million..For the first
10 months of 2005, surplus liq-
uid assets only declined by
$4.89 million, but for the same
period this year they have fall-
en by $57.24 million as a result
of the boom in mortgage and
consumer lending.
- The Central Bank acknowl-
edged: “In the short-term,
tightened liquidity conditions
will impac! the rate of credit
growth, which has expanded
at a very brisk pace during the
course of 2006, and easing will
depend on the pace of devel-
opments in the tourism sector
and foreign investment activi-
ties.

“The seasonal tightening in
liquidity conditions during the
month of October was com-
paratively more pronounced
in 2006, with a contraction in
excess reserves of $95.4 mil-
lion to $149.1 million,,and for
the broader excess liquid
assets, by $107.4 million to
$55.2 million.

“This outturn reflected an

_ elevated level of private sec-
tor spending, partly for inven-
tory rebuilding, alongside an
increase in commercial bank’s

short-term advances to gov- |

ernment.”

The Central Bank’s monthly
report on economic activities in
October confirmed what, Tri-
__bune Business revealed two
“weeks ago, when it reported

that Bahamian commercial
banks may soon find it more
difficult to grow their asset
base by the traditional routes
of mortgages and consumer
lending due to tightening liq-
uidity, a situation caused by a
combination of consumer
demand, seasonal trends and
corporate needs.

Paul McWeeney, Bank of
the Bahamas International’s
managing director, had writ-
ten in his report to the institu-
tion’s shareholders on the fiscal
2007 first quarter, that while
“senerally sound economic
conditions prevail, a weaken-
ing in system liquidity may
challenge core asset growth
prospects in the sector”.

Liquidity refers to the sur-
plus assets and cash within the
commercial banking system
that Bahamians banks look to
redeploy as loans, usually
through mortgages or con-
sumer lending, to generate a
higher rate of return.

When there is excess liquid-
ity in the system, this often
means that the commercial



banks are holding too much
cash, depressing borrowing
rates and profits.

However, when liquidity
tightens, as in the current situ-
ation, it means that Bahamian
commercial banks have rela-
tively less surplus assets avail-
able.for lending, something
that tends to drive borrowing
rates higher as potential bor-
rowers compete for scarcer
resources.

Tightening

The liquidity tightening has
been caused by a combination
of factors, including the strong
credit growth and the upcom-
ing festive season. Consumers
have withdrawn cash and tak-
en out loans to finance the pur-
chase of Christmas presents,
including foreign exchange for
overseas trips, while business-
es ordered extra inventory in
preparation for a season in
which demand was tradition-
ally higher.

And the corporate sector’s:
demand for financing, to com-

behind the liquidity tightening.

The $54 million acquisition

$5 million preference share

raised $24.1 million and $15
million respectively via pref-

redeploying capital by taking
money out of the system to

Others redeploying capital
are FirstCaribbean Interna-
tional Bank (Bahamas) and
the Bahamas Electricity Cor-
poration (BEC) with $20 mil-
lion and $100 million bond
issues respectively. ,

Although BEC’s only has a

_ $53 million component, a large

chuink of this is likely to be
converted to foreign currency
to finance overseas equipment
purchases.

The Central Bank yesterday
revealed that the external
reserves contracted by $93 mil-

ity falls to $55.2m

lion to $454.7 million in Octo-
ber 2006, “almost three times
higher than the decline regis-
tered in 2005”.

This was due to increased
demand for foreign currency
to finance imports and other
payments. ;

For the 10 months to Octo-
ber 2006, Bahamian dollar
credit grew by $612.8 million
or 11.8 per cent, compared to
last year’s increase of $423.9

Southwest Airlines Co. has
also said it would be interested
in any Northeastern US gates
and routes made available
from a Delta-US Airways
AirTran
spokesman Kevin Healy said,
"It is clear that it will be nec-
essary to divest assets when
the deal is approved, particu-
larly to improve competition
in the Eastern US, and Air-
Tran Airways is well-posi-
tioned to provide that compe-
tition.” But Healy would not
say-specifically whether Air-
Tran would want to run a
Boston-New York shuttle.

Of other possible airline

buyers, Northwest Airlines is
currently bankrupt and Con-
tinental is heavily invested in
its huge hub at Newark Liber-
ty International Airport. That
leaves American Airlines -
which has bid for the Boston-
New York shuttle in the past,
and runs eight daily regional
jets from Logan to LaGuardia

- and United Airlines. Both

Should the deal go through,
JetBlue “obviously” is a lead-
ing candidate to buy a Boston-
New York-Washington shut-
tle operation, Kasper said. But
he’d be surprised if a JetBlue
shuttle underpriced the US
Airways shuttle, beyond per-
haps some promotional dis-
counts when service launched.

For years, Delta and US Air-

ways have exactly matched
each other’s shuttle prices, with
the only real competition in
the discounts they offer cor-
porate customers for bulk tick-
et purchases.
_ J think it’s unrealistic to
expect a lot of price cutting”
from JetBlue, Southwest,
American, or anyone else buy-
ing a shuttle, Kasper said.

“Any airline is going to price
to maximize its profits. If my
planes are full already, there’s
no reason for me to cut prices,”
he said.

Insurer urged
to back
off Florida
rate rise

@ By DAVID ROYSE
Associated Press Writer

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP)
— House Speaker Marco
Rubio on Wednesday joined a
growing chorus of politicians
‘who say the state’s largest
home insurer, Citizens Prop-
erty Insurance Corp., should
back off of a proposed rate
increase for now.

Rubio and.other lawmakers
want the state-created compa-
ny to wait at least until after a

special legislative session next ©

month aimed at tackling the
issue of rising insurance rates.

Citizens Property sells wind
coverage to homeowners who
can’t get it from private insur-
ers. It is considering a pro-
posed rate increase of more
than 50 percent on average for
most of its customers. The
,company’s board plans to vote
on the proposal Thursday and
it would then be subject to reg-
ulatory approval.

Company officials said they
didn’t have any choice but to
seek the increase because of a
law passed earlier this year. It
requires Citizens to charge
tates high enough for it to buy
private backup reinsurance —
even though the company
doesn’t buy such backup cov-
erage.

Several lawmakers have said
‘that the Legislature may repeal
that part of the law. Citizens
board chairman Bruce Dou-
glas has said he would like to
see the provision repealed.

Citizens spokesman Rocky
Scott, however, said the com-
pany’s board planned to go
forward and consider the pro-
posal on Thursday — because

it was required by the law to-

do so.

Gov.-elect Charlie Crist said
earlier this week that the pro-
posed rate increase “scares the
daylights out of people,” and
he is glad the Legislature plans
to take up the issue. He-didn’t
specifically call on Citizens to
delay the rate hike.

Florida’s incoming Chief
Financial Officer, Alex Sink,
called this week for the repeal
of the provision and several
Senate Republicans have said
they would file legislation to

do that in the January special

session.
One; Sen. Jeff Atwater, R-
North Palm Beach, also wrote
a letter this week to Douglas
asking the board to wait until
after the special session.
“Floridians cannot withstand

another hike in property insur-
Atwater wrote. .

ance costs,”
“The dream of the young
Florida family wishing to buy a
house is rapidly disappearing.
Retired Floridians, despite

Applications are invited for the pos

every heroic effort they are
making, now fear the prospects
of giving up their home.”

Rubio agrees.

“I think it would be prudent
for them to wait until special
session to understand what the
new realities are,” said Rubio,
R-Coral Gables.

The proposal would increase
residential windstorm rates
next year by an average of 55.8
percent for people in the com-
pany’s high-risk account —
which is most of its customers.
Business rates would go up
even more, with the increases
showing up on bills in the
spring.

The increases would still be
subject to approval by the
state’s Office of Insurance
Regulation.

The head of that office,
Kevin McCarty, said'Wednes-
day that Citizens should prob-
ably go forward with the fil-
ing, noting the company has
had trouble meeting rate filing
deadlines in the past. He
declined to say much about
whether the increase would be
approved by regulators, but
promised the proposal would
be “thoroughly vetted.”

The point of the provision
requiring higher rates was for
Citizens to build up its coffers
more to avoid having a deficit
the next time there is a big hur-
ricane season. The company
came up drastically short of
what it needed to pay claims
after the 2004 and 2005 sea-

sons.

When that happens, nearly
everyone in Florida pays —
because state law requires oth-
er homeowners insurance com-
panies to hit their customers
with a surcharge to make up
Citizens’ shortfall. The alter-
native is for taxpayers to pick
up the tab, which is what hap-
pened last year. When the Leg-
islature spent more than $700
million to bail Citizens out, it
avoided a large surcharge, but

those tax dollars could have ©

been spent on other state
needs.

The situation pits Citizens
customers against non-Citizens
customers. If Citizens rates are
low, everyone else is at risk of
large assessments. If Citizens
rates rise, it’s a hardship for

the company’s 1.3 million pol-

icy holders.

“That’s the crux of the
debate,” Rubio said. “It’s an
interesting debate. ... When
you’re paying it it’s not a very
interesting debate.”

Lawmakers who pushed for
the change originally argued
that Citizens wasn’t financially
strong enough —. and it wasn’t
fair to everyone else.

“Both sides have arguments

en and harm me not to go to
the trial” against the former.

Mr Kohlrautz had claimed:
“Only because I went for my
gun (which is licensed) these
men left my property in haste
and under loud threats. ©

“Immediately after, I had
Inspector Clyde Nixon and Sgt
Gibson from the Royal
Bahamian Police Force take a
report at my home since my
maid overheard the threats
against me.

“This occurrence shows how
desperate Diedrichs-Shurland,
in collusion with my former
wife, were in trying everything
(also criminal) to prevent me
from going into the trial
against Diedrichs-Shurland.”

The Privy Council described
this as “a grossly improper let-

ter”, and no copy was sent to :

Mrs Diedrichs-Shurland or her

records to prepare their case
before the Court of Appeal.

The Privy Council ruled:

“On its face, the letter was an
attempt to influence the judge
in favour of Mr Kohlrautz by
making very serious allegations
against Dr Diedrichs-Shurland.

“These allegations, if they
were going to be raised at all,
should have been put to her in
cross-examination at the trial,
when she would have had an
opportunity to answer them.
It was contrary to basic princi-
ples of fairness to communi-
cate them to the judge behind
her back after the trial had
ended.”

Mr Kohlrautz had said frus-
tration over the legal proceed-
ings drove him to write the let-
ter. But he had been warned
previously by Justice John
Lyons, who had presided over
his divorce proceedings in a
separate case before they went
to Justice Moore, that he
should not write private letters
to a judge, following corre-

The Privy Council noted that
the Court of Appeal did not
take th letter issue seriously,
which was probably due to the
fact it was raised at the last
minute and without. proper
notice.

The Privy Council, too, said
a further difficulty arose
because no one knew whether
Justice Moore had read Mr
Kohlrautz’s December 2001
letter or what he had done with
it.

In addition, Mr Kohlrautz
alleged that Mrs Diedrichs-
Shurland’s attorney told him
in April 2002 that she knew of
the letter, although the latter

’ has denied this.

_ Asaresult, the Privy Coun-
cil ruled to.remit the case to
the Court of Appeal to decide
a procedure for determining
whether Justice Moore read
the letter, and if it was brought
to Mrs Diedrichs-Shurland’s

attention, before any decision :

trial with conspicuous fairness
and ability, and there were
ample grounds for his rejec-
tion of her evidence.

“Even if he read the letter, it
is unlikely that it had the slight-
est effect on his judgement. It

- would, however, be contrary .

to the principle stated by Lord
Denning in Kanda’s case to
speculate on such matters. Mr
Kohlrautz would have only
himself to blame for snatching

defeat from the j Jaws: of victo-

Ty.”

The case had its origins in

1998, when Dr Diedrichs-Shur-
land and her late ex-husband
had agreed to ‘help. Mr
Kohlrautz, who himself going

land home, with Dr Diedrichs-
Shurland: making payments to
lawyers and others upon his
request.

. Yet their relationship started
to deteriorate in summer 1999,
when Mr Kohlrautz attempt-
ed to obtain an accounting
from Dr Diedrichs-Shurland
as to the sums received and
paid out, reconciling these with
the bank accounts.

_ He concluded that some $2.2
million should be held on his

“uation “reached crisis point”
‘when Dr Diedrichs-Shurland

failed to transfer client funds

‘He obtained a mareva

Bahamas ‘not exploiting’ Chinese opportunities

FROM page 1B

Bahama, as they are actively
looking at the Americas as a
market.

“Freeport sits between the
major shipping channels con-
necting the US and Europe.
We are not taking advantage
of the opportunities. There are
so many spin-offs - warehous-
ing, retailing and wholesale,
sellings Chinese goods. Then
there is real estate investment
and real estate projects.”

Mr Scott added that Callen-
ders & Co, which has a Chi-
nese correspondent law firm,
Jincheng & Tongda, had also
lobbied the Government on
establishing a commercial
office in Beijing to promote
the Bahamas’ commercial
attributes, as well as its culture

‘and nation generally.

He added that it was a
“process of education”, pro-
moting the services and oppor-
tunities the Bahamas thas to

offer to the Chinese.

A commercial office would
provide a focal point for pro-
viding Chinese businessmen
with information on the
Bahamas, Mr Scott said, point-
ing to activities such as a recent
Chinese-Italian week, which
involved commercial and cul-
tural exchanges, as a way to
raise this nation’s profile.

“Tt could function as a tourist
office, and a reference for the
distribution of literature about
the Bahamas,” he added of the
commercial office.

As for.costs, Mr Scott point-
ed out that the City of London
had commercial offices to pro-
mote its services in Beijing,
Shanghai and another Chinese
city, which collectively cost
£150,000 - the equivalent of
$300,000 - to run per annum,
representing a small fraction
of the Bahamas’ annual Bud-
get.

“We need to do this. We
need to bridge a 15-year head-
start that the British Virgin
Islands and Cayman have on

- ourselves,” Mr Scott said, say-

ing these countries and their
law firms had established bases
in Hong Kong before it was
returned to China by the UK.

“We need to catch up and
the only way to do that is to
go in directly and set up com-
mercial and trade missions,”
Mr Scott said. “We need them
[the Chinese] more than they
need us. We have to create
another economic dimension
and diversification.”

Viewed

Freeport has long been
viewed as an ideal destination
for Chinese investment in the
Bahamas and wider
Caribbean, given the already
strong links between the two
countries as a result of Hutchi-
son Whampoa’s considerable
presence and partnership with
the Grand Bahama Port
Authority (GBPA). .

In addition, Freeport pro- ,

vides investors in the manu-
facturing, wholesale, distribu-

tion, transhipment and assem-
bly industries with numerous
advantages, due to the pres-
ence of facilities such as the
Freeport Container Port,
Freeport Harbour Company,
airport and Sea/Air Business
Centre.

Then there are the invest-
ment incentives, tax exemp-
tions and bond advantages pro-
vided by the Hawksbill Creek
Agreement.

“Hutchison already employs
1600 people in their facilities,”
Mr Scott said. “That would
increase” if the Bahamas could
attract Chinese businesses and
investment to Freeport, tying
in nicely with plans to expand
the Freeport Container Port’ s
facilities.

Freeport Container Port
experienced a 26 per cent
growth in the number of TEUs
(20-foot equivalent units) that

. it handled during the first six
months in 2006, further indi- .

cating its potential as a logis-,
tics/transportation/
distribution centre for.the

Americas.
The Container Port process-

~ es 1.115 million TEUs during

the 2005 full year, an increase
of 6 per cent upon the previous
year.

Derek Newbold, Hutchison
Port Holdings (Bahamas) sales
and marketing manager, earli-
er this year said the, Container
Port expected “to exceed” in
2006 the 1.115 million through-
put TEU volume that it
processed in 2005, with its par-

- ent comp ny looking at invest-

ing $572 million in the port’s
long-term expansion.

Mr Newbold added that the
Freeport: Container Port had
“a lot of room for growth. and
opportunity”, having devel-
oped “‘a very comprehensive
expansion plan”. —

The potential Phase V North
Berth expansion would see an
additional 450 metres of capac-

ity and nine blocks stacking

area, while Phase VI could
lead to a further 340 metre
expansion of the North Berth.

And Phase VII might see a

335 metre Berth expansion and
three blocks stacking area.
Another 600 metre area was
also available for expansion.

When completed, all this -

expansion would give Freeport
Container nine berths - with
total docking length of 2,749
metres - 30 quay cranes, a 4.5
million TEU capacity, and cre-
ate employment for 650 work-
ers.

Mr Newbold said this did
not include a possible eighth

’ Phase of expansion, which

would require dredging and
land reclamation at Billy Cay.
At‘a cost of more than $200

million, this could provide
1,219 metres in berth space and.

12 quay cranes on a 42- hectar e
site.

And Mr Scott told The Tri-
bune: “If you want to ship to
North America and South
America, then Freeport is the
hub for that, no. question. It
makes shipping to the Ameri-
cas much easier. You don’t
have to go through US regula-
tions such as the Jones Act.”

The Company continues to maintain and improve its financial strength, as total assets at
September 30, 2006 were in excess of $451 million, an increase of 7.5% as compared to
December 31, 2005. Invested assets total $348 million, representing 77.2% of total assets

as at September 30, 2006. Our solvency ratio, using Canadian reserving methodologies:

and solvency standards as measured: by the Minimum Continuing Capital and Surplus
Requirement (MCCSR) stands at 170.9% at September 30, 2006, an increase from 169.3%
at June 30, 2006 and 161.1% at December 31, 2005. Canadian standards recommend
a minimum MCCSR of 150%.

Total ordinary shareholders’ equity has increased to $47.9 million at September 30, 2006 _

compared to $42.6 million at December 31, 2005. The increase in equity is partially
attributable to. a decrease in. treasury shares which the Company has sold fo its
employees as part of an employee share option plan.

We are pleased with the results as they highlight a positive trend towards reaching the
Company's financial goals for 2006.

CRICKET
FAISALABAD, Pakistan
Associated Press

BRIAN LARA'S West Indies
team enters Thursday's limited-overs
international against Pakistan
refreshed from some much -needed
rest ‘after playing virtually nonstop
international cricket for the past
three months.

"It's good that the guys spent most
of the time in their rooms, but we've
been on the road for pretty good
time and now we have to focus on

the four remaining games," Lara said

of his team's five-day break Wednes-
day on the eve of the second day-
night one-dayer against Pakistan.

The West Indies lost the test series
2-0 before the opening match of the
five-game limited-overs series was
washed out at Rawalpindi Tuesday.

Prior to traveling to Pakistan, the
West Indies played a triangular
series at Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in
September before competing in
the ICC Champions Trophy in
India.

. Despite losing the test series, the

West Indies has performed well in
the shorter version of the game,
reaching the finals in Malaysia and at
the Champions Trophy, losing to,
world champion Australia on both
occasions.

"We are well positioned in the
one-day game," Lara said. "We've
performed really well not just in the
Champions Trophy, we've been
playing good cricket in 2006."

The only concern for Lara is the
loss of two key players — batsman
Ramnaresh Sarwan and allrounder

_ Dwayne Brevo — for the one-day

series.

Sarwan suffered a hairline frac-
ture on his right foot when he was
struck by paceman Umar Gul's york-
er in the third test, while Bravo has
also flown back to the West Indies
for personal reasons.

"Our only worry at this present
time is that we are pretty close to
the World Cup and the likes of Sar-
wan and Bravo are not here with
us," Lara said.

"These are the players whom we
actually depend a lot in the one-day
arena," he said. "But it's an oppor-
tunity for younger players to stake
their claims."

TRIBUNE SPORTS

Mark Knowles

IT’S not every day that our
athletes who have excelled on
the international scene get the
opportunity to return home
and give back to the country.

For the past six years, Mark
Knowles has been doing just
that with the hosting of his
Celebrity Invitational at
Atlantis on Paradise Island.

Around this time of year, the
island used to be.a hive of
activity with some of the top
players in the world partici-
pating in the now defunct
Bahamas Open Tennis Tour-
nament.

But since the transformation
of Atlantis, the tournament has

_ceased, thus opening the door

for Knowles to step in and host
the Celebrity Invitational.

It can’t be compared to the.

Bahamas Open, which served
as an opportunity for the
Bahamian fans in particular to
watch a week of intense com-
petition at the end of the year.

Instead, it’s a weekend spec-
tacular where the players come
in and sign autographs, play in
a Pro-Am and participate in
an exhibition series.

There’s no pressure to win
at the Celebrity Invitational as
there was at the Bahamas
Open, so the players are more
laid back when they come here
now.

Knowles have been hosting

‘the event for the past six years

and, through the event, he has
given more than any other
Bahamian athlete on the inter-
national scene.

So let’s give Knowles a lot
of credit because he has made

his contribution to our society.
And has played his role in sup-
porting the youth of our
nation.

We need more of our inter-
national athletes to step for-

the full impact won’t be

realised until the long-

resolved.

The federation will hold its
annual general meeting on Sat-
urday at Holy Cross Parish, but
as they prepare to look ahead
to 2007, the feud with the
Bahamas Baseball Association
doesn’t appear to be on their
agenda. _

But in order for the federa-
tion to gain the national promi-
nence and international recog-
nition, sooner or later, they will
have to look at resolving the
dispute with the BBA.

The BBA, although not. as-
active as the federation, holds -'

which means that they have

the right to go to the major

by not being sanctioned by the °

COLUMBUS Primary School
boys and girls teams have taken
both championship titles in the
Primary School Volleyball Cham-
pionships.

The teams faced off with the
Garvin Tynes Primary school in
the championship games yester-
day, but the Columbus’ squads
were too tough for their oppo-
nents in the end, winning the two
games in straight sets.

In the girls match-up, Colum-
bus got past Garvin Tynes: Pri-
mary school 15-11 and 15-12,
while their boys took care of the
Garvin Tynes boys’ team 15-13
and 15-13.

It was the tough play by Patrice
Ferguson and Katie St Charles
that helped the team cope with

fight put forth by Regine Curtis —

and crew.
Ferguson, the only female in

the tournament to use the over--

hand service, scored five points
from the line for her team, three
of the five points were service
aces, he
When Garvin Tynes were able
to connect with Ferguson’s ser-
vices, the ball shot off the hands
of the receivers. Coach Janice
Williams wisely called a time-out,
in an attempt to break the con-
centration-and consistency level
of Ferguson, but when the
Columbus’ Primary team leader
stepped back on the court it was
business as usual.

Ferguson’s service was finally

broken by St Charles who mis-.”

fired on one of her three kills.
But the Columbus Primary duo

didn’t stop their dominance. With

St Charles in the front court and

Ferguson in the back, receiving

the services sent by Garvin Tynes
became easy.

Ferguson made a per fect pass

to St Charles, who flicked the ball
into Garvin Tynes spacious back-
court. 2

The two continued to work
together as the game went on.

Speaking on behalf of Williams
was the boys head coach Jeremy
Major. 2

Major said: “The school should
be proud about both teams per-
formances out here. This is a big
accomplishment, having both
teams playing in the champi-
onships.

“T really believe that both

teams have performed good,
coach Janice Williams worked

hard with her girls team, they just .
missed out on the. champi-.

onships.”
Before the championship game
in the girls division was played

the battle for third place was -

bétween the Gerald Cash Prima-
ry and Centerville Primary.

In the end Gerald Cash Prima-
ry finished up in third with Cen-
(erville taking the fourth spot.

The Garvin Tynes Primary
boys were training for months,
hoping to clinch a title, but the

Columbus Primary boys had a .

different agenda.

Columbus Primary, who also
finished up the regular season
play with a perfect record, wasted
no time in putting away the
Garvin Tynes Primary.

Major said: “I am proud of my
boys, they did an excellent job on
the court today. Yes they are
upset about not winning because
they’ve put in the extra time to
what is needed to win.

“But like I explained to them,

there can only be one winner and -

they shouldn’t feel bad about
their performances because
they’ve all performed like super-
stars.”

Coming in third place for. the
boys was Sadie Curtis with
Stephen Dillette finishing in
fourth.

THE Defence Force
Stingrays were hoping to clean
up on their turnovers in the sec-
ond half of play on Tuesday
night, but the defence of the
Sunshine Auto Cheetahs made
it impossible.

Although the Stingrays were
able to tie up the third quarter,
the Cheetahs still prevailed with



a 61-57 victory.

The Cheetahs went toa full
court press hoping to pull away
from the Stingrays; who had
outscored them in the third
quarter by two points.

Tough play on both the offen-
sive and: defensive ends by
Cheetahs’ Linda Pierre. gave

them the edge. Pierre ended the.

game with 27 points, four
rebounds and one block shot.

Assisting her with great per-
formances were Lucinda Syl-

assists, along with Anastacia

Man charged with unlawful

alleges prison beatings

i By NATARIO
MCKENZIE

A MAN charged with the
rape of a six-year-old girl
pleaded with a judge yester-
day to save him from the bru-
tality he alleged he was endur-
ing at the hands of prisoners
as well as prison guards.

-Andrew. Bridgewater; 32,

who is on remand at Her

Majesty’s Prison, appeared’

before Senior Justice Anita
Allen yesterday and asked the

judge to bring an end to this

brutality.

A distraught Bridgewater ©

alleged that he was being beat-
en with chains. The accused
man told court that he was

suffering brutality.at the hands
of prisoners as well as ; prison
officers.

Bridgewater was arraigned
before chief magistrate Roger
Gomez in mid- September ‘on
the charge of unlawful inter-
course with a six-year-old girl.

He was also arraigned on

the charge of forcible deten-
tion, for allegedly; taking the
girl away against her will. It is
alleged that he committed the

offences between Thursday,
. September 14, and Friday,

September 15.

On the day of the arraign-
ment, Bridgewater had to be
sheltered from an angry mob
as dozens of persons, including
the parents of the victim, gath-
ered at Bank Lane shouting
insults at him as‘he was led to

Tribune Freeport Reporter,

FREEPORT - Occupancy levelaa at resorts on Grand Bahama are
lower this holiday season, and none of the major hotel properties

others are experiencing much better levels i in the 50s, to as high as

89 per cent at one resort.

THERE hes been a jump in
the number of passport appli-
cations by US citizens in the
last six weeks, indicating that
the "potential fallout" from
the new passport regulations
may. be mitigated, according
to Tourism Director General
Vernice Walkine.

"What we're being told by

According to Ms Walkine,

NHI bill is flawed

@ By RUPERT MISSICK Jr
Chief Reporter

While the FNM supports the
introduction of a levy to pro-
vide additional funding for
healthcare, the party is opposed

_ to the nationalisation of health

insurance, opposition leader
Hubert Ingraham said yester-.
day.

He pointed out that a number
of important details are not cov-
ered in the bill — including the
time and manner for rendering
healthcare services to contribu-
tors to the NHI, the conditions
under which services will be
rendered under the NHI, and
the exclusion of any type or
class of services.

Mr Ingraham said that in his.
party’s view, this government is
beginning at the wrong point.

He added that the introduc-
tion of national health insur-
ance should not be about poli-
tics — but that is what it has
become.

GOVERNMENT ‘does not
need the National Health Insur-
ance Bill to deliver health insur-
ance to the uninsured, former

prime minister Hubert Ingra- .

ham said yesterday during
debate on the bill.

“Having neglected to deliver
on its promises, the governing
party is now telling us — with a

Bahamian people more or less
than the other. To pander to
emotion and raise people’s
hopes is to deflect attention
from the need for health insur-
ance for all,” the former prime
minister said.

Mr Ingraham said he believes
that persons needing healthcare
should be able to access it with
dignity.

“We do. not accept that dis-
agreement with the governing
party over its national insurance
scheme should subject critics to
mean-spirited attacks by mem-
bers of the governing, party,”
Mr Ingraham said.

The opposition said that
healthcare professionals, with-
out whose support the country’s
efforts at improved healthcare
must surely fail, should not find
themselves maligned and insult-
ed.

“There should not be fear of
informing the public; there
should not be a preoccupation
with controlling what the people
hear.

“Similarly, we do not

treat the

iene sense of urgency — that
the need for the National

Health Insurance scheme is

dire! ‘Bahamians are dying

before. se

“People voted to change that
before; the governing party did
not deliver. If, according to
them, people are dying because
there is no national health insur-

accept that representatives of
labour or employers of labour
should be slandered for not
agreeing hook, line and
sinker to what the governing
party has proposed,” Mr
Ingraham said.

He called on parliamentari-
ans to be honest with the public
and pointed out that national
health insurance will reduce the
take-home pay of workers
throughout the economy.

Mr Ingraham said that the
scheme now proposed by the
government has not been
thoughtfully designed.

“Essential prerequisites to the
introduction of an effective
national health insurance bene-
fit have not been undertaken.
For instance, it is inconceivable
that when insured persons are
hospitalised they will still con-
valesce in the same public wards
built for them more than 50
years ago. At the very least
under an FNM government
there would be semi-private
rooms,” he said.

said, the Sonation does not
see the value or need for the
creation of a Health’ Commis-
sion to administer the pro-
posed scheme, because this is
not cost-effective. i
“NIB benefits should be
extended to include health

because of medical negligence.
And ‘yet others may die
because they do not, have
essential medication.

“But we need not scare peo-
ple to have our way, and play
tricks with people’s emotions |
in order to deceive them,” the:
opposition leader said.

Official statistics on the
number of deaths annually in.
the Bahamas over the past
decade, Mr Ingraham said, do
not support the governing par-
ty’s assertions.

“If the elderly and other
needy persons could get their
medications for high blood

consistently there may well be
fewer deaths; these are med-
ications they are now — by law"

Miller: time
forNHI |
billto be |
enacted |

LESLIE Miller

MINISTER ‘of Agriculture
and Marine Resources Leslie
Miller lent his support to the
National Health Insurance Bill
yesterday — calling it the second
most important initiative under-
taken in the Bahamas in rela-
tion to social ills.

Mr Miller noted that much
has been said in the newspapers
and on the radio in recent days.
concerning the NHI.

He said it is now time for the
bill to be enacted into law.so
that the Bahamian people can
benefit from some of the many
advantages that it offers.

“Most persons say they agree
with the bill. But of course, they
then stop and say that the time
is wrong... on television last
night there was a group of men
discussing the National Insur-
ance Bill. I listened attentively
Mr ‘speaker, and you can only.
draw one conclusion: if it were
not for the doers, the critics
would soon be out of business,”
Mr Miller said.

The minister said that in his
view, it is never too soon to help

..those in need. ; :
“Is it evera wrong time to do, a

the right thing?” he asked.

Mr Miller noted that Prime 3

Minister Perry Christie appoint-
ed an independent Blue Rib-
bon Commission to look at the

NHI plan and spoke highly of

the committee’s membership.

He also spoke of how the pre-
sent system depends on philan-
thropy, noting that he has per-
sonally given aid to many con-
stituents and others struggling
with medical bills.

Mr Miller strongly criticised
those who oppose the bill — and
some who he claims are against
anything progressive. in the
Bahamas, including Petrocaribe
or LNG.

job security
financial, diagnostics, addition-
al trained health care profes-
sionals, and a system to bill and
collect from private insurers for
services rendered to insured
persons at our public health
care institutions.

“And National Health Insur-
ance needs to ensure the provi-
sion of medication for treatment

of chronic illnesses like hyper-
tension (high blood pressure)

_and diabetes, for all. Universal

mandatory catastrophic health
insurance coverage would make
insurance coverage affordable
for, all in respect of serious ill-
nesses.

“Hence the interest of the
FNM while we were in office in
pursuing a partnership with the
private sector for the introduc-
tion of a National Catastrophic
Health Insurance Scheme,” Mr
Ingraham said.

Ingraham:
we will
make NHI

plan work

i By RUPERT MISSICK Jr
Chief Reporter

The FNM will support the
start being made to establish a
National Health Insurance Plan
for the country and will — if they
win the next géneral election —

provide the competent leader- ~

ship and management to make
it work, opposition leader
Hubert Ingraham said.

Mr Ingraham said that oppo-
sition party believes, along with
“most enlightened people in
today’s world” that health care
is a fundamental human right.

“We also believe that access
to health care ought not to be
determined by private wealth
or ability to pay,” Mr Ingraham
said.

He said that the FNM will
commit to convening a meeting
with all stakeholders — the pri-
vately insured, the uninsured,
and the private and public med-

ical sectors — so as to achieve a .

consensus on the best and most
effective means of providing
health insurance for all.

“We commit to introducing
a universal health insurance
scheme that will take into
account the needs of the people
and provide for an appropriate
role for the private sector and
for providers of private health
insurance,” he said.

However, unless persuaded
otherwise, the FNM is inclined
to view the National Insurance
Board as the appropriate vehi-
cle by and through which uni-
versal health insurance should
be provided, he said.

This current bill, Mr Ingra-
ham said, will not produce a
national health insurance
scheme.

“It is only an umbrella. More,
much more, needs to be done
before national health insurance

can’become a reality,” he said. ©

In addition, he pointed. out
that during the last election
campaign, the governing party
sold itself. as the party of con-
sultation.

“Now it is said there will be
no compromise. To hear them
during the election campaign
was to infer that no government
elected prior to 2002 had ever
adequately consulted the
Bahamian people on matters of
national importance.

“Now they stand condemned
by many for not consulting suf-
ficiently on their proposed
National Health Insurance
scheme. I envy them not. You
know, we believed that we had
consulted widely on the finan-
cial services legislation enacted
‘with the unanimous support of
members opposite in 2000.

“We also believed that we
had consulted widely on the
amendments to the Constitu-
tion prior to their unanimous
adoption in this place and place-
ment before the people in a ref-
erendum. But in both cases
some people thought otherwise;
they were aided and abetted by
members opposite — the same
members who voted for it — to
‘cast doubt in the minds of many
more. Now they, the governing
party, are getting a dose of their
own medicine,” Mr Ingraham
- Said.

He noted that the minister of
Health recently said that con-
sultation does not mean accept-
ing all advice or recommenda-
tions proffered.

“He complained that those
whose points of view had not
been adopted by the governing
party now claim not to have
been consulted. He insisted
that consultation did not give
those consulted the right to give
instructions!

“That is what I. used to
believe. Now I know better. The
governing party made its bed;
they must: now lie in it. They
sowed the wind; now let them
reap the whirlwind,” Mr Ingra-
ham said.

But, unlike the government,

” Mr Ingraham said the FNM will

not say “yes” to the government
and then wait until afterwards
to “stab them in the back”.

“We are telling them and the
nation publicly and up front
what we.think about their pro-
.posals,” ‘he. said.

ee NHI bill
on emotions

@ By PAUL TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter

FOREIGN Affairs Minis-
ter Fred Mitchell yesterday
defended his party against sug-
gestions that they are selling
the National Health Insurance
(NHI) Bill on emotions.

Mr Mitchell, the PLP repre-
sentative for Fox Hill, said that
there is nothing wrong with
doing just that — as many other
public policies that are benetfi-
cial to the country have been
moved by entotion.

“Human beings are rational
creatures but they are also
creatures of emotion. Surely

the other side is not arguing:

that we must so strip ourselves
from our emotions that we lose
our feeling for people. But the
fight is not just on emotions.
This makes logical sense.:
“You can save the lives of
citizens, to stay in the work
force or become productive
citizens if you are to provide
them with quality heathcare.
You do so by spreading the
tisk of the cost and you do so

to allow those who are in their
senior years or too young’ to
join the work force to be able
to be cared for without bank-
rupting their parents or their
care givers or themselves,” he
said.

Choice

Mr Mitchell also explained
that under NHI, individuals
will still be allowed to chose
whether or not they want to
see their own private doctor,
and that it represents lifetime
coverage that will continue
from job to job.

“The opponents of this have

not been frank or honest with,

the country on this matter.
They have said that they were
not consulted. The facts show
otherwise, It is pure sophistry
on their part to seek now in
answer to the fact of consulta-
tion with them to say that

there is a difference being:

called to a meeting and being
given information and in. being
consulted, ” he said.

Mr Mitchell said he finds it
very ironic that just two
months ago, the FNM criti-

cised Prime Minister Perry.

Christie for not being able to

_make a decision, saying that —

he consulted too much.

Now, he said, the FNM are
of the opinion that policy is
being rushed.

“The question we have to ask
is how much more consulting
do we need after starting this
process in 1984 under the now
leader of the opposition Hubert
Ingraham. At some point we
must make a decision, let’s get
started and. while we develop
the model, we can improve as
we go along.”

“You just have to remem-
ber my example of the nurse at

the start of my intervention

who said to me, ‘Mr Mitchell, I
know that if you do not have
money in this country for
heath care, you will die.’ Die
indeed — and some want us to
continue with that. Dying is a
choice that is easy to make,
when you-are not the one
doing the dying,” he said. «

NHI plan will be implemented

by the end of 2007 — Sears

THE implementation of
the National Health Insur-
ance Plan is scheduled to
come on stream by the end
of 2007, Minister of Educa-
tion Alfred Sears said yes-
terday in the House of
Assembly.

Mr Sears said’ that fur-
ther consultation will take
place with stakeholders’
with regards to the forma-
tion of NHI regulations
before the scheme comes
to fruition.

A computerised, data-
intensive system — covering
registration with “smart
cards” for all members,
contributions from partici-
pants, with on-line, real-
time processing of claims —
will also be installed, he
said.

' “Contracts will be estab-
lished with health service
providers, specifically the
terms for being part of the
network, as is done with
private insurance, relation-
ships with other agencies
such as NIB (National
Insurance Board) and the
Ministry of Social Services
(for timely and accurate
data on the indigent),” he

_ said. °

Mr Sears also advised that
reviews will be done to eval-
uate the behavioural pat-

BAT ee

terns of healthcare providers
under. NHI against the perfor-
mance of other providers to
prevent fraud.

This service, he said, will be
linked to the NHI’s system of
incentives and penalties for.
providers.

Also, a medical panel will ba

established to adjudicate oh:

overseas referrals and under-
take pre-authorisation clear-
ances in relation to expensive
procedures.

So it is the PLP’s election bait.

WELL, at last we have it from the horse’s
mouth — at least one of the horses.

Debating the proposed National Health
Insurance plan in the House of Assembly yes-
terday Carmichael MP John Carey, Parlia-
mentary Secretary to Tourism, said he was con-
fident that Bahamians would vote for the PLP
in the nearing election on the strength of gov-
ernment’s national health proposal. He was
also satisfied that they would chase all of those
who criticised the health plan from their doors.

While many of his colleagues, especially
Prime Minister Christie, have denied that intro-
ducing universal health insurance at this time is
a glittering bauble being dangled to tempt the
electorate, Mr Carey is convinced that it is the
trump card that will draw the votes: As Oppo-
sition Leader Hubert Ingraham asked, if in fact
so many Bahamians were dying in this country
for lack of a national insurance plan, why was-
n’t this plan introduced sooner —- especially as
Minister Alfred Sears pointed out yesterday
that even if it were passed now it would take at
least another year before it could be imple-
mented.

Many government speakers in the House
yesterday trumpeted the end of cookouts and
other activities that Bahamians resorted to to
raise funds for their medical care.

“Without some form of health insurance,

many people have to dip deep into their savings .

or borrow or depend on help and the charity of
others,” Mr Christie told the House on Novem-
ber 15 when he introduced the Bill for debate.
“Cookouts, church welfare activities, or dona-
tion sheets, all to find the cash to pay people’s
health care bills.” .
However, what Mr Christie did not make
clear was that no one has to have.a cookout to
go to Princess Margaret Hospital or govern-
_ ment clinics for their average medical needs.
. A form of national insurance is already in place
for them covering all manner of ills. The cook-
outs come into play to raise funds for cata-
strophic illnesses — a’ plan that the FNM was
working on before it was dismissed from gov-
ernment in 2002:— and a plan on which this
governmént also should be concentrating.
Instead they have introduced a i: -alth scheme
that will completely turn on its heac .:ood insur-
ance coverage already in place fer working
Bahamians.
As we have said before, it is untruc to say
that employers do-not care about the health of
‘ their employees. With the mandatory National
Insurance in place, which already provides basic
medical care, there was no compulsion on
employers to show any further interest in health

insurance. But because they did care for their -
employees, most employers took out private -

health plans that they partnered with their
employees. We know at The Tribune that this
insurance has been a godsend for many of our
employees.

Now government comes along with.a second
compulsory insurance scheme. In many of its
statements it has assured the public that this
newest scheme will in.no way interfere with
their private insurance. Those. who have pri-

‘vate insurance — with national insurance and

national health insurance both compulsory —
know that something has to give. And that
something is their private insurance which they
and their doctor control — not some imper-
sonal government board. They also know that

neither they nor their employer will be able to

afford all three.

In his contribution to the debate yesterday
former prime minister Hubert Ingraham made
it clear that this particular Bill was not needed
to deliver health insurance for the uninsured. He
said that if, as Prime Minister Christie had said,
people were dying because there was no nation-
al health insurance, “then people will continue
to die because this Bill is most certainly not
delivering national health insurance.”

In fact, as he pointed out, it is taking free
health care from those groups that already have
it by requiring that many of them contribute
financially to the scheme.

One of yesterday’s speakers pointed out that
the Opposition now supported government’s
proposed Bill. This is not true. Mr Ingraham
made it clear that his party supports health
insurance for all, but not under the plan now
before parliament . However, to get the’ ball
rolling, the Opposition will vote for a start
towards this goal.

If his party is returned to office, Mr Ingraham
said, it is committed to “convening a meeting
with all stakeholders — the privately insured,
the uninsured, and the private and public med-
ical sectors — so as to achieve a consensus on
the best and most effective means of providing
health insurance for all.”

He committed his government — if elected —
“to introducing a universal health insurance
scheme that will take into account the needs
of the people and provide for an appropriate
role for the private sector and for providers of
private health insurance.”

He said that “unless persuaded otherwise, we

in the FNM are inclined to the view that NIB is
the appropriate vehicle by and through which
universal health insurance should be provid-
ed.” ek









Behaviour on plane
made me hang —
my head in shame

EDITOR, The Tribune.

RECENTLY, I once again
had cause to hang my head low

‘in shame as a Bahamian. This

time, as is too often the case, it
came as a result of the disap-
pointing attitude of a group of
Her Majesty’s Prison officers.
On a Bahamasair flight 238
from Orlando to New Provi-
dence, a team of officers used
the pre-flight time to drag the
image of the Bahamas through
the mud by rudely and loudly
talking while the flight atten-
dants attempted to explain the
operation of the plane’s safety
manual.

Throughout this process and,

even prior to it, it seemed as if
the plane had turned into their
very own communal bathroom
— where much of their conver-
sation would have its rightful
place. .

Whereas the armed forces of
the Bahamas are supposed to
have an image that could stand
among the pantheon of other
armed services in the region,
one could not but feel shame
when the five or six officers — in
particular two female offices
and one male — used the pre-
flight seating time to laugh, jeer,
discuss lotto number winnings,
sexual positions and acts better
left to the imagination.

Needless to say this thor-
oughly destroyed any sem-
blance of an enjoyable flight for
the other passengers. Some

sought to throw around their,

position of “officer” as if it were
the pinnacle of personal
achievement — but considering
the brazen attitude portrayed
by-some, it'seemed that they in
fact have succeeded in surpass-
ing their own wildest expecta-
tions: ,
“Rehabilitation and reform”
one officer scoffed sarcastically,

casually summing up the gen-

eral feeling most have about the
Fox Hill Prison. There seems

- not to be enough time to reha-

bilitate an inmate before that
inmate can make a break for it.
How difficult can it be to keep
people from “walking out” of
a prison? But these are ques-
tions for a later date.

But maybe the discomfort of
Bahamasair flight 238 was not
totally to the blame of the offi-
cers. What about the Bahama-
sair flight crew who should have
stepped in and reprimanded the
boisterous lot? But given the
demeanour and size of the pas-
sengers in question, one could
understand why the ladies
would think twice before rep-

rimanding these custodians and

on the wall of fame?:

EDITOR, The Tribune.

WE MUST give honour to whom honour is due.

Many may not remember, but I certainly remember when!

Kingsley Poitier won the 1965 IFBB Mr World contest. It was :
a joyous event. I was just a teenager but it was a big time
achievement for a tiny nation such as the Bahamas. Not like _
today when the Bahamas is well known in athletics, the Bahamas
was literally unknown then. So winning internationally meant
more then than now, in terms of the frequency of winners inter- ,
nationally. : :
Let me clarify, a Bahamian named Kingsley Poitier won the
International Federation of Body Builders Mr World contest. ;
That means he was the best Body Builder in the world in 1965. :
I stand to be corrected, but the only other time the Bahamas was °
mentioned winning internationally, was when Sir Durward |
Knowles and Cecil Cook won the gold medal for sailing at the:
Tokyo Olympics. ie
Now, there has beén a calculated effort to highlight certain |
athletes and to support “elite” athletes and'to put the pictures:
of athletes on the wall in the airport which comprise of track and
field athletes, sailors and others. Visitors arriving to the Bahamas -

will see the fine athletes who have achieved the highest awards. | -
A Street was also named in honour of an athlete. Sir Durward: |

Knowles and Cecil Cook are there from 1964 and there is no'
mention made of Kingsley Poitier. Why? Kingsley Poitier is as
much of an athlete as anyone on the wall at the airport. His
achievement is not only equally as important, but as valuable as*
anyone else. i g
Kingsley Poitier is still alive and should be honoured in many ,
ways just like every other athlete who achieved and in some case -

‘less. He is a gentleman and is a family man. He deserves it. His,

flowers must be given while he is alive, otherwise it is useless. -

The next time I walk through, or the next time. Kinglsey’
Poitier or his family walk through the airport, his picture should:
be there. I am sure my good friend Minister Neville Wisdom will’

Unfortunate legal
- divide at GBPA |

_ EDITOR, The Tribune.

I CONTINUE to state in both private and public quarters that

the legal divide at the Grand Bahama Port Authority is most,

unfortunate. It is important that this legal battle does not over-.”

shadow the tremendous contributions made by the Haywards
and St Georges as it relates to the growth and development of
Freeport, Grand Bahama, and the Bahamas. Both families
hold noted chapters in our rich history.

I am humbled and thank God for his given talents that have
afforded me the opportunity to secure a contract as a public rela-
tions consultant to the GBPA. y

While such a contract now exists, it should be noted, contrary
to recent media reports, I am not an official spokesperson for
the GBPA.

However, I will continue to spread the message locally,

nationally, and worldwide. The message is: Despite their now
heralded differences, Sir Jack and Lady Henrietta share a num-
ber of things in common — they love the Bahamas, they remain
committed to the GBPA staff, licencees, and the advancement *
of the quality of life of Grand Bahama residents. Freeport,
and by extension Grand Bahama Island, is still a great place to
buy land, take up r idence and do business. For the people of
our beautiful island this legal storm, like hurricanes, shall too
pass.
The calls were many, the gossip ran high, the mean-spirited
souls cried foul, and the sophisticates who are of the view that
the GBPA cheques belong only to them and their family mem-
bers questioned how a ghetto boy with “imperfections” could
serve as the GBPA's spokesperson.

Thank God, at the very least they said I spoke
well.

I hold a personal and professional obligation regarding the
promotion of Grand Bahama and like many others, I look for-
ward to the end of twisted headlines, bad GBPA press, and a
new beginning guided by Sir Jack's son Rick and the late
Edward's son Henry's loving attitude.

CAN'T WE ALL JUST GET ALONG?

Wild cats
threatening
parrots in
Abaco

WILD cats are still posing
problems for Abaco’s parrot
population, a major feature of
the island’s national park.

Protection of the parrots is
one of the issues under discus-
sion at a series of meetings
being held to decide how to
manage the park.

The meetings have been
scheduled for Marsh Harbour,
Sandypoint, Crossing Rocks
and Cherokee Sound.

“As we have no full-time war-
dens, it is up to the public to
keep an eye on the park and
make sure it serves its purpose,”
said a Marsh Harbour source.

“Feral cats have always been a
danger to the Abaco parrots.
Most are former domestic cats
released into the wild. They feed
on lizards, frogs and young birds.”

uary 2003 shooting death of .11-

son, is set to take place on Jan-
uary 15, 2007.

TROPICAL
-EXTERMINATORS

@ By KRYSTEL ROLLE

CORRUPTION only exists
among civil servants because
it has filtered down from the
leaders of the country, Cassius
Stuart claimed yesterday.

The leader of Bahamas
Democratic Movement said
that the effort to root out cor-
ruption must therefore start at
the top.

“What we’re seeing in our
country, particularly in the
Royal Bahamas Defence
Force, is basically just a micro-
aspect of what’s really going
on in our country,” he said.

“If the leadership is -exem-.
plifying corruption, then cor-
ruption will fall through the
ranks and into the entire soci-
ety.”

The new commodore of the

i Defence Force Clifford Scav-

ella declared that.25 per cent
of the Defence Force are “bad
apples” to be weeded out, and
said he is taking aggressive
steps to restore the image of
the force.

Mr Stuart said he supports
the commodore’s efforts, but
added that “when you deal
with corruption you have to
deal with all the persons who
committed crimes against the
state — namely members of par-
liament first.”





E Es mos
@ CASSIUS Stuart

“I always say we deal with
them first because they are the
national leaders, then we can
go and deal with other enti-
ties,” said Mr Stuart, who was
appearing as a guest on Jeff
Lloyd’s show ‘Real Talk’.

He explained that when
Bahamians see that there is



corruption at the top then they
too feel that they can get away
with corruption.

“Because if the politicians
are doing it, if the national

. leaders are doing it, then why

can’t they do it? It has to start
at the top.

“Everything rises and falls
on leadership and once we get
that right, then we’ll be able to
clean up everything else
around us. ;

“But if we can't clean up par-
liament then we won’t be able
clean up anywhere else,” he
said.

“We have been this way for
so long that people are almost
beginning to accept corruption
from members of parliament
and that is very frightening. We

have reached to the point,

where we accept corruption,”
Mr Stuart said.

“We are trying to line up the
rest of the body while the head
is not straight. How many
members of parliament violat-
ed our law and have not been
brought before court?” he

asked. “We have a hypocrisy.

in our system and we have to
straighten the head first.”

Nassau grouper closed season gives
ture |

the fish a chance for the

Hi By BREEF

FISHERMEN, conservation
groups and people who simply
like to eat fish have reason to
rejoice this winter. The announce-
ment by Leslie Miller, Minister
of Agriculture and Marine
Resources of the extension of the

Nassau grouper closed season, to
run from December 1, 2006 until
February 28, 2007, is a major step
to ensuring that we will always
have Nassau grouper in the
Bahamas.

During the closed season the
taking, landing, possessing, scll-
ing, offering for sale or purchasing

the Nassau grouper anywhere in

the Bahamas is prohibited.

The Bahamas Reef Environ-
ment Educational Foundation
(BREEF), and other organisa-
tions such as the Bahamas
National Trust, the Nature Con-
servancy, Friends of the Envi-
ronment, Abaco, Andros Con-

LEER too

LICENSE & INSPECTION

servancy and Trust and the San
Salvador Living Jewels Founda-
tion have advocated protecting
the Nassau grouper at the time

~ of year when it is most vulnerable,

and protecting the special places
in the ocean where the fish gath-
er to spawn. These groups
applaud the government’s deci-
sion to implement this year’s
closed season.

Although it is called the “Nas-
sau” grouper, this same species
of fish, (Epinehephelus striatus),
is found all around the Caribbean.
Several other species of grouper
also exist in the Bahamas, includ-

“ing the tiger grouper, the black

grouper, the yellowfin grouper
(rockfish) and the red and rock
hinds.

The Nassau grouper is easily
distinguished by five vertical dark
bars on side of body and black
“saddle” at base of tail. Nassau
groupers are able to change their
body colour from dark to light to
camouflage themselves.

Because all.groupers have a
similar body shape, the Depart-
ment of Marine Resources insists
that all other groupers that are
caught during the closed season
must be landed with the head and
skin on so that they can be easily
identified.

Stocks

Nassau grouper stocks have
declined precipitously through-
out the Caribbean region, pri-
marily a result of overfishing and
fishing on spawning aggregations.
Stocks of Nassau groupers have

. declined throughout their range,

and are now commercially extinct

’ in places such as Florida, the Vir-

gin Islands, Puerto Rico and the
Dominican Republic.

Globally, the Nassau grouper is
considered to. be an endangered
species but it is nevertheless a
species of ecological, economic
and social importance in the
Bahamas.

Because Nassau groupers gath-
er at predictable places and at
predictable times in the winter
months, they have been targeted
by fishermen. However, catthing
the fish during their reproductive
period threatens the survival of
the species and ultimately the
livelihood of the people who

depend on them.
Fishing on aggregations can
produce a high catch in the short
term, but the catch won't last. All
Nassau grouper spawning aggre-
gations are smaller now than they
were in the past, and many are

‘already gone for good.

By giving the fish a chance to
reproduce, without disturbance
from humans, we can ensure that
we have a plentiful supply of Nas-
sau grouper for current and
future generations of Bahamians
to enjoy.

_The Bahamas has been a
regional leader in Nassau grouper
conservation, starting with site-
specific closures around the peak
winter spawning periods in 1998
and 1999. J

Nassau groupers are slow-
growing fish, taking seven years
to reach sexual maturity. There-
fore, we are now reaping the ben-
efits of the closed season that was
first implemented in 1998. We,

sight and the proactive steps that
we are taking now to protect
these fish stocks for the future.

Scientific evidence strongly
supports the need for the closure. | -
Research into Nassau groupers
around the Bahamas has indicat-
ed that, for most of the year, they
are solitary fish living on the reef.
However, in the winter months
they can travel dozens, if not hun-
dreds, of miles to reach spawn-
ing aggregation sites.

BREFF has been working with .
Dr Craig Dahlgren of the Perry
Institute of Marine Science to tag
Nassau groupers around the Exu-:
ma Sound and track their migra-

‘tions. Several fish have been

taggéd with acoustic “pingers”
implanted inside their abdomen.

' Presence
When a tagged fish swims past

‘an acoustic receiver, its presence

is detected and its movement can
be tracked. There are now an
array of acoustic. receivers in the
Exuma Sound that enable tagged
fish to be monitored swimming
all the way from the northern
Exuma chain to aggregation sites
as far south as Long Island.

This ongoing research indicates
that fishing on a spawning aggre-
gation would not only negatively
impact the number of potential
fish that will be able to be caught
in seven years’ time, but would
also reduce the number of fish
living on reefs a long way away
from the spawning site.

The closed season for t17 } tas-
sau grouper is an importan. Wey
to address this problem. ‘ie
future looks bright; all but one of
the fish that was tagged in the
Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park

-last year, successfully made the

migration south to a spawning
site, and returned safely to the
park. .

The tagged grouper that disap-

peared while on its spawning
migration reminds us that proper
enforcement is critical. It is imper-
ative that the closure is enforced
both for Bahamian and foreig
fishermen.
. The public can play an active
role too — by choosing to support
fishermen by purchasing fish
aside from the Nassau grouper
during the closed season and by
supporting Bahamian marine
conservation.

We have the choice of either
not having Nassau grouper tem-
porarily while the season is’
closed, or eventually not having
any Nassau grouper at all. 3

SCHOOLCHILDREN in

. Abaco are playing an active role

in helping to preserve the
island’s marine life.

They are making concrete
reef balls as part of a conserva-
tion scheme initiated by Friends
of the Environment.

The reef balls, made in
moulds, are laid on the seabed
to create artificial reefs and pro-
tect local fish stocks.

“It’s something we’re really
excited about,” an Abaco resi-
dent said yesterday.

“It means the children devel-
op a real interest in the envi-
ronment, which is important for
Abaco’s economic develop-
ment.”

About 100 reef balls are to
be laid off Abaco’s shoreline,
with children managing to pro-
duce about three a week.

‘Once in place, the balls have
pieces of coral stuck on them
so that they can develop over
time into a completely new
coral reef.

“Schoolchildren all over Aba-
co are involved in the plan,”
said the islander, “It will help
them to understand the impor-

Abaco is believed to be the
first island in the Bahamas to
create reef balls, but it is hoped
others will follow its example.

“The real purpose is the pro-
tection of sea creatures,” said
the source. “Eventually, it is
hoped reef balls will be avail-

L is interesting to hear

rich people accuse rich

- people of not caring about the
poor.

For example, Prime Minister
Perry Christie and many of his
cabinet ministers are rich. Both
in terms of their incomes as well
as net worth, these people are
rich.

Quite a number of them are
millionaires - that is, when you
assess their net worth, it exceeds
one million dollars.

Few, if any, now live in any
low-income area and few, if any,
live in modest homes. Again,
most of our cabinet ministers
are rich.

We would know better just

how rich they are if they obeyed






The children at the Elizabeth Estates Children’s Home
recently received a gift from their newest friends in
the neighborhood, Wendy’s. As Wendy’s recently
celebrated the opening of their newest restaurant in
the Seagrapes Shopping Centre in partnership with
the Elizabeth Estates. Children’s Home, part proceeds
of the Grand Opening’s sales were apportioned to the
Home. As requested, the Home was presented with a
brand new fridge and 25 cubic foot freezer to assist
in the operation of the Home. ‘ag Meads

the law and filed and published
their annual financial disclo-
sures, but they have not.

These same rich people call
on other rich people regularly to
support their political causes.
For example, they received mil-
lions of dollars from Mr
Mohammed Harajchi, a rich
foreigner, to fund their 2002
election campaign.

They received millions of dol-
lars more to fund that highly
glamorous 2002 campaign. Pre-
sumably they got these millions
from other rich people.

It is safe to say that rich peo-
ple will again fund their 2007
election campaign, though Mr
Harajchi will likely pass. Some
of PM Christie and his minis-
ters’ most ardent supporters are

rich - some very rich.

They are rich lawyers,
accountants, developers, con-
tractors and business people.

Again, these same rich gov-
ernment politicians secure sig-
nificant contributions from rich
people to assist their political
efforts while in office. Those
sporting tournaments, comput-
ers for community centres, park
programmes and turkey and
ham donations at Christmas
time are not provided at their
personal expense - they get help
from rich people.

For example, one minister
gave out turkeys at Christmas
time and actually had his name
and a rich foreign investor’s
name on the card that went out
with the turkeys!

in other areas of personal inter-
est to them. Scan the newspa-
pers and see with whom they
take most of their photos. They
take them with rich people,
mostly rich foreigners.

Rich foreigners and Bahami-
ans create businesses and pro-
duce jobs which the so-called

“poor” come to hold so that .

they might have a chance to
improve their lives and move

‘from being poor.

Many of these rich people
give to charities and good caus-
es all the time. Look at those

..who give the most generous

scholarships to Bahamian chil-

“dren. Lyford Cay, City Markets,

Tomlinson Foundation and the
Grand Bahama Port Authority
are among some that do. These
same. rich people who do good
for the poor are hailed by rich
cabinet ministers as generous
when they have their photo ops.

When natural disasters like
hurricanes devastate our islands,
who do our rich cabinet minis-
ters look to for recovery money
to help the poor? They look to
rich people, be they doctors,
lawyers, Indians or chiefs. In
fact, rich people gave PM
Christie and his government
some $5 million for the hurri-
canes that struck over the last
several years. These rich peo-
ple are still looking for a proper
accounting of the funds but they
gave nonetheless.

Aw: these rich peo-
ple who do good for

the poor are many doctors. If
the poor cannot afford health-

care, then who has been giving

it to them over the many
decades that they have been in
this country? Do the poor go
to rich politicians for medical
services when they are sick?

MONTAGU

Lot ANG

Absolutely not! They go to doc-
tors, many of whom extend
their services free of charge and
without fanfare. By the way,
many of these doctors are rich,
just like the rich cabinet minis-
ters who accuse them of being
uncaring.

The point here is that it is
highly curious that rich people,
like some of our cabinet minis-
ters, who say they are trying to
do good for the poor, seem to
suggest that other rich people
who raise questions about their
efforts do not care about the
poor.

They seem to suggest that
they are the only rich people
who can care about the poor.
That is absurd! The fact is that it
is a political ploy by these gov-
ernment politicians to engage
in class warfare in the hopes of
demonising people who have
legitimate questions about the
way things are being done with
their public funds and in their
name.

[secs this has been a
strategic political
approach of the PLP for
decades. In their approach to

life, there is often black versus
white with the white never right;
there is rich against the poor,
with the rich always evil; there
are those who are for God and
those who aren’t for God and
they, the PLP, are always the
former although their actions
may suggest otherwise. And
finally, there is us against them.

Those who will bear the bur-
den of funding any government
programme should not be
demonised for questioning how
the programme will operate.

Although these people may
be predominantly rich, they
should not be scandalised by
other rich people. Goodness has
nothing to do with being rich
or poor. It has to do with having
those values that promote a
willingness to do good and
recognising the dignity of oth-
ers.

The paradox of rich Cabinet ministers

Health Insurance debate, he
‘accused me of saying that the
National Health Insurance was
a tax. He spoke untruth. I nev-
er said or wrote any such thing.

He probably got some bogus
report from one of his cronies
who mistook Cassius Stuart for
me. It was Mr Stuart who said
that the NHI was a tax when
asked about it by Jeff Lloyd on
his show the same morning Mr
Miller was shooting off his
mouth. *

For the record, I do not
believe that the National Health
Insurance is an income tax or a
tax in the strict public finance
sense of the word. It is not a tax
principally because it proposes
to provide a specific benefit in
return to the payers of the fee
and in this way does not meet
the strict definition of a tax.

Taxes are compulsory pay-
ments levied by governments
to support their general opera-
tions and that is not what the
NHI purports to do. It might
be a payment from income but
it is not an income tax.

A ssitionaty while
.shooting off his
mouth, Mr Miller went on to
say that I increased the gas tax.
What Mr Miller will not say is
that more than 50 per cent of
the present gas tax was applied
by the PLP and that if he finds
the tax so burdensome, he
should have the testicular forti-
tude to do something about it.

He and his government have
the power to roll back any tax
they want. Finally, when the last
tax increase was imposed by the
former administration, gas price
at the pumps never exceeded

Since his administration came
to office, gas prices have
reached almost $5. If the last
gas tax increase did not push
gas price to anywhere near $5
and it has increased to that
under his administration, why.
shouldn’t Bahamians blame
him? For all his talk, Bahamians
still ache. That’s effectiveness

Tribune Freeport Reporter

FREEPORT - The alarm-
ingly low occupancy levels at
Grand Bahama hotels are cause
for great concern and anxiety
among residents in Freeport,
according to former cabinet
minister Zhivargo Laing.

Mr Laing criticised govern-
ment and the minister of
tourism for allowing such a
“troubling” situation to come
about by failing to adequately
promote Grand Bahama and
get more rooms filled, especial-
ly during the holiday season.

According to reports, some
resorts on the island are pro-
jecting poor occupancy as low
as 30 per cent, while others are
showing slightly better rates
between 50 and 70 per cent.

“It has to be alarming for
Grand Bahama to watch Exu-
ma with its very robust tourism
occupancy levels to the tune of
90 to 100 per cent, and New
Providence with occupancy lev-
els of 80 and 90 per cent, to
have the hotels in Grand
Bahama with occupancy levels
at 30 per cent,” Mr Laing said.

Mr Laing, the FNM candi-
date for Marco City, said it is
disturbing after almost two
years of promises by govern-
ment that there is still no pur-
chase of the closed Royal Oasis
Resort.

The World Investment Hold-
ing Group, the potential buyer,
is in the process of acquiring
the distressed Royal Oasis prop-
erty for $40 million from
Lehman Brothers.

The government had expect-
ed the deal to close in October,
but nothing has as yet materi-
alised.

Mr Laing said he thinks

to listen to Mr Wilchcombe talk
about the fact that the delay in
the Royal Oasis purchase was
actually about their doing the
necessary due diligence, when,
in fact, we have heard on sev-
eral occasions now over the last
two years, Mr Wilchcombe or
some other member of the gov-
ernment say that purchase was
imminent.

He added that the govern-
ment only backpedalled after
the Port Authority expressed
reservations about the sale.

' “JT might also remind the min-

ister that it was under his gov-.

ernment’s watch that Isle of
Capri came to Grand Bahama,
and we now understand that
that group is getting ready to
leave.

“It is under his watch that the
Virgin Atlantic Group came to
the Bahamas, and they are no
longer going to continue, their

Mr Harper has announced
that the establishment of the
Canadian Partnership Against
Cancer, a not-for-profit corpo-
ration to implement a strategy
for cancer control in the form of
a five-year plan developed by
more than 700 cancer survivors
and experts.

He said the initiative will

serve “as a Clearing house for

state-of-the-art information
about preventing, diagnosing
and treating cancer. Its job is to
make sure that the best cancer
care practices in any single part
of Canada are known and avail-
able to health care providers in
every.part of Canada.

“Make no mistake about it,
the Canadian Partnership
Against cancer is going to save
lives. In fact, experts are pre-
dicting the strategy could pre-
empt 1.2 million new cases of



cancer and prevent 423,000
cancer deaths over the next 30
years,” Mr Harper said.

Canada’s new government has
committed $260 million to the
strategy in the coming budget.

Six months ago, Prime Min-
ister Perry Christie reviewed
the same state-of-the-art science
equipment installed and in use
at the Cancer Centre on Collins

Dr Arthur Porter is the man-

“The quality of radiation

Canadians is exactly the same as

NEW YORK -—- The
Bahamas could see an increased
number of Chinese. and Indian
tourists if efforts by the Min-
istry of Tourism to ease the path

for visitors from these countries ,

to reach the Bahamas are suc-
cessful. rt

Efforts to entice these under-
represented Asian demograph-
ics to the Bahamas are in the
process of being stepped up by
the Ministry of Tourism, which
believes that both countries are
“significant potential markets,”
said Tourism Director Gener-
al Vernice Walkine. |

there is a growing class of afflu-
ent young consumers who the
ministry is confident would
"love" what the Bahamas has
to offer, she said.

"We are absolutely con-
vinced that China and India are
significant potential markets for
the Bahamas and we want to
make sure that we're in a posi-
tion to take advantage of that
and get in the door, so to speak,
before everybody else does,"
she said.

To this end, in China particu-

larly at this stage, the ministry
has been working "on parallel
tracks" to remove the primary
impediments to these persons
reaching Bahamian resorts.

Representatives from the
ministry have visited the coun-
try three times — meeting with
various tour operators and air-
lines “with a view to moving in
a positive direction,” said Ms
Walkine.

“One of the issues.is the long
turn around time for visas.
We're working hand in hand

with the Ministry of Foreign
Affairs to improve that," she
said. j

The DG noted that the open-
ing of the Bahamian High Com-
mission in Beijing, China, has
already helped to increase the
number of visitors from that
country, by providing a “specif-
ic place that people can go to
submit their application.”

However, she added that the
slow processing pace remains
the "number one complaint"
from Chinese airlines and tour
operators.

Slightly further behind in
terms of the process, the real
potential of the Indian market
will be assessed by Ms Walkine
personally when she travels to
the country for the first time in
February, she said.

Pointing to the growth of
technology in India as an indi-
cator of the increasing affluence
among certain sectors, Ms
Walkine said: "These young
people have.a lot of disposable

income and they're looking for.

the places to go."

She added that she has been
made to understand that the
beaches and shopping offered
by the Bahamas are — for Indi-
ans as with the Chinese — an
attractive prospect.

Alongside the visa issue, the
question of ensuring that air-
lines provide "good connect-
ing service” is also paramount,
she said, so that interested
potential visitors are not dis-
couraged by difficult travel
itineraries.

S12m ad

campaign
launched

@ By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter

NEW YORK - The Ministry
of Tourism has launched its
most expensive advertising cam-
paign ever in the US — at a cost
of $12 million — in an effort to

create a new image for the -

Bahamas as a tourism destina-
tion.

However, if it is to be as

effective as it could be, there -

needs to be an attitudinal shift
among many of those working
in the tourism industry, claimed
Vernice Walkine, director gen-
eral of Tourism.

Speaking at the campaign's
launch on Tuesday, Ms Walkine
said that the ministry realised
that the Bahamas can no longer
take it for granted that visitor
numbers will remain high, after
finding itself in a new competi-
tive environment.

To confront this reality, a
multi-pronged approach has
been initiated that will not only
require a unique advertising
campaign abroad to re-brand
the Bahamas, but also a domes-
tic campaign to improve the
quality of service offered to vis-
itors, she said.

Both elements are necessary
if the country is to maintain the
edge over its competitors, who
are multiplying, and entering
the market making very simi-
lar offers to tourists as the
Bahamas traditionally has, she
explained.

To this end, she and other
ministry officials chose New
York — one of the Bahamas pri-
mary markets for visitors, and a
major media centre — to launch
the "Bahamavention" campaign
on Tuesday.

The "totally unique" multi-
media campaign will hit US
cable television, print media,
Internet and the sides of 570
New York subway trains next
Monday.

It is anticipated the drive will
lift the Bahamas out of the "sea
of sameness" that currently pre-

entry using their new passport.

Ms Walkine's comments fol-
lowed the launch of the min-
istry's new advertising cam-
paign, "Bahamavention" in
front of Bahamian and US press
in New York.

According to Ms Walkine,
though the launch of the new
$12 million campaign, which
will incorporate advertising on
cable television, in the print.
media, on the Internet, and all
over New York on 570 subway
trains — was not planned
specifically to counteract the
effects of the regulations, it has
turned out to be "very timely"
in light of the US government's
decision to go ahead and
impose the new requirements.

"It wasn't intended that-way.
but the timing was to our
advantage," she said.

A message informing poten-
tial travellers about the need for
a passport has also been includ-
ed in the advertising campaign.

The new regulations, as set out
in the Western Hemisphere Trav-
el Initiative -,;set to come into
force on January 23, 2007 - will
require all US citizens travelling
to the Bahamas, among other
destinations, to- have a passport to
be able to re-enter the US.

Questioned as to what would
happen to those who were
allowed to leave the US without
a passport, only to find that they
were not allowed back in the
country, Ms Walkine stressed
that much is being done to
ensure that this possibility does
not become a reality.

"The airlines are absolutely
going to be checking because if
they allow someone to leave
without a passport the fines are
horrific," said Ms Walkine, not-
ing that fines of about $60,000
may be introduced.

vails among all "sun, sand and
sea" destinations, said Walkine.

"Though it is a risk, we see it
as a calculated risk," she said
of the “radical” campaign.

Though not intentional, she
claimed, the campaign will
begin to take effect in time to
play an alleviating role in any
"potential fallout" from the new
passport requirements sched-
uled to come into force in Jan-
uary 2007.

Furthermore, it will pre-empt
the completion of dozens of
new resorts, not only in New
Providence, but across the
country's 700 islands in the next,
five years.

The concept behind the
tongue-in-cheek campaign is
that friends and family will
intervene — or "Bahamavene"
— in the lives of loved ones who
they diagnose as being too
stressed-out and in need of a
rehabilitating vacation that only
the Bahamas can offer.

In a series of five quirky tele-

‘vision commercials to be aired

beginning December 11, US
audiences will see formerly
depressed, anxious and "dan-
gerously untanned" characters
happy and proclaiming how
they were "cured" by their
Bahamavention.

In another first, the adverts
will show "real Bahamians"
inviting visitors to the country's
700 islands, said Walkine,
adding that she was particularly
proud of this aspect of the cam-
paign.

"We're really using Bahami-
ans in a significant way in our
campaign. This is not just back-
ground, this is not just as extras,
we're using Bahamians in
speaking roles, actually being
the person inviting those who
need a Bahamavention,” she
said.

. The domestic campaign — rid-
ing on the back of the new
dvertisement launch —. will be
initiated in earmést in early 2007,
with the aim of effecting the
attitudes of some of those work-
ing in the tourism sector in the
country, and in the process,
moving towards a reputation
for superior service becoming
a réality in the Bahamas, said
Walkine.



According to Ms Walkine,.

this second prong of the min-
istry's focus — which she admits
will not be easy to achieve ~ will
be a major talking point at the
National Tourism Conference,
taking place from January 21 -
26, 2007.

what was supposed.to have'been an arraignment.
Bridgewater was, however, not represented by a lawyer and
Justice Allen was wary of this. While noting Bridgewater’s alle-

judge decided not to proceed with the matter until Bridgewater

had obtained counsel.

The matter was adjourned to Wednesday, December 13.
Justice Allen noted that Bridgewater would be afforded coun-

Sea tragedy victims

FROM page one

up Ms. Dawkins said she lost two

sisters in the accident, Bren-
damae Ellis Smith and Brun-
nell Smith Leslie, and that since
the incident she has had to care
for her deceased sister’s nine

children.

Ms. Smith adkitowledged that
she received assistance from
government in the aftermath of
the tragedy, but since then, gov-
ernment has given her no help.

According to Ms. Dawkins:
“After the accident, ‘Mother’
Pratt was giving us a little assis-
tance, but children have to live
everyday and eat everyday.”

Ms Dawkins said that gov-
ernment should have taken
responsibility for assisting the
family members of victims
because they lack the finances
to fight for compensation before
the courts.

Mr Tennyson Leslie also told
The Tribune how he lost his
right leg in the collision.

He said: “That night I was
going away with my family to
have a nice time with my wife
and friends. I woke up in the
morning around 1 am with my
right leg off and when I looked
around I saw that my wife’s
head was crushed up.”

When Mr Leslie and Ms
Dawkins confronted Minister
Pratt about their concerns, the
minister said that a& far as she

: knew the matter was still before

the courts, so government could

not as yet comment on their sit-
uation.

- Mrs Pratt told the frustrated
victims that they both lived in
her constituency and they could
have brought their concerns to
her personally instead of
demonstrating in front of the
House of Assembly.

Mr Leslie said he does live
across the street from Minister
Pratt, however he suggested:
“She is a Christian, a pastor,
and a Minister and I am a victim.
who has lost my leg in a tragic
accident that every one knows
about and even if I.did not,
come to her, she should have
asked me how I was doing, but
she never did that.”

Mr Leslie also claimed that
Prime Minister Christie pledged

_at his wife’s funeral that he

would ensure that the victim’s
families would be “sorted out”,
but he continued, “up to now .
all we’ve heard are talks.”

Social Services Minister
Melanie Griffin also said that
the matter was still before the
courts, but she told the victims
to contact the Ministry of Social
Services for “immediate assis-
tance” because the government
was not in the business of sitting
back and allowing its citizens to
suffer. -

The victims told The Tribune
that they were not satisfied with
the ministers’ responses and.
that they would continue’ to
demand assistance because
they have “no one else to turn
to.”

nium-210 in his body.

The radiation found at the
stadium was “barely
detectable” and posed no pub-
lic health risk, said Katherine
Lewis, spokeswoman for the
Health Protection Agency.

ABC News reported that
British detectives had identi-
fied Lugovoi as a prime sus-
pect in the poisoning. The
report cited an unidentified
senior British official.

Alexander Goldfarb, a
friend of Litvinenko’s, said he
doubted that Lugovoi played
a role in the killing.

“T frankly doubt that he was
the hit man because hit men
are usually people hiding in

the dark,” Goldfarb told the »

AP. “I think it’s one of his

> associates, I think he was used

unawares ... Now his life is in
danger because he knows a
lot.”

An Italian security expert
who met Litvinenko on the
day he fell ill was released

from a London hospital .

Wednesday after showing no
signs of radiation poisoning.

Mario Scaramella had test-
ed positive for polonium-210,
but University College Hos-
pital spokesman Ian Lloyd
said the Italian had been dis-
charged and was in good
health:

The. Health Protection

Agency has been tracking a

number of sites found to be
contaminated with polonium,
including a sushi bar and a
hotel Litvinenko visited the

_ day he reported feeling sick.

The sushi restaurant said
Wednesday it would reopen
in the new year and that its
staff had been given a clean
bill of health.

On Tuesday, Russian Pros-
ecutor-General Yuri Chaika
said that his office would fully
cooperate with British inves-
tigators, but all figures in the
case would be questioned by
Russia prosecutors in the
presence of the British HT
cers.

On his deathbed, iwi:
nenko, a strong critic of the
Russian government, blamed
President Vladimir Putin for,
the poisoning. The Kremlin
has vehemently denied the

_ accusations.

Lugovoi, who had become a
businessman, has said that he
knew Litvinenko for a decade.
He said Litvinenko had con-
tacted him from London
about a year ago with some
business-related proposals,
and that they had met inter-
mittently in London since
then.

Lugovoi traveled to London
three times during the month
before Litvinenko’s. death and
met with Litvinenko four
times, according to Russian
media.

Thailand is
burying last
110 unidentified
victims of
2004 tsunami

@ BANGKOK, Thailand





AUTHORITIES on Wednesday began burying Thai-
land’s last 110 unidentified victims of the 2004 Indian
Ocean tsunami, a little more than two weeks ahead of
the second anniversary of the disaster, according to
Associated Press. :

Workers in antiseptic white coveralls carried the bod-
ies in aluminum coffins out of the mortuary where they
had been kept, then lowered them into concrete vaults
in trenches dug at a special new cemetery for the
unidentified victims.

The cemetery is near the resort town of Khao Lak in
Phang Nga province, which was the area in Thailand
most affected by the tsunami. It will be officially inau-
gurated on Dec. 26 to mark the disaster’s second
anniversary.

‘Nitinai Sornsongkkram, the cemetery manager, said
48 bodies were buried Wednesday, and the rest would
be laid to rest on Thursday and Friday. Buddhist, Mus-
lim and Christian ceremonies were conducted before
the burials.

The tsunami killed more than 5,400 people along
Thailand’s Andaman Sea coast and more than 216,000
people in 12 countries.

Police have said that before Wednesday, some 300
unidentified bodies had been buried since October,
each grave labeled with a registration number. Police
collected DNA samples of all the bodies for possible
future identification, said police Col. Khemmarin Has-
siri, chief of Thailand’s tsunami victim identification
center.

Most of the unidentified victims were Asian, many of
them thought to be migrant workers from Myanmar.

Nitinai said 97 bodies remain that have been identi-
fied but not claimed: 22 Thais, 73 Myanmar nationals,
one Nepalese and one Turk. No decision has been made.
about whether or when they might be buried.

There are another 349 Thais and dozens of foreigners
who were reported missing during the tsunami and are
stil] unaccounted for, he said.

Shiites bury victim
of clashes; army
commander warns
Lebanon unrest
could spiral

@ BEIRUT, Lebanon

SHIITE Muslims on Tuesday
buried a man killed in street
clashes in a Sunni Muslim neigh-
borhood as Lebanon’s army
commander warned the military
may not be able to contain fur-
ther protests linked to the coun-
try’s tense political standoff,
according to Associated Press.

Army commander Gen.
Michel Suleiman urged politi-

cians to.compromise, according.

to comments quoted by several
Beirut ‘newspapers.

After another night of unrest-

in the capital, Prime Minister
Fuad Saniora warned the situa-
tion could get out of control.
“No one can impose control
on the streets and this has been
proven,” he told hundreds of
supporters who converged
throughout the day on his office
complex, which was ringed by

‘ barbed wire, combat troops and

riot police.

Outside, thousands of oppo-
sition protesters were gathered
near Saniora’s offices.and in sev-
eral other downtown squares in
yet another evening of rallies
aimed at bringing down the gov-
ernment. Many have been
camped out near the prime min-
ister’s headquarters since Fri-
day.

In a new tactic Tuesday night, .

they aimed two powerful flood-
lights at the government com-
plex. Troops installed more
barbed wire and other fortifica-
tions.

Lebanon’s political con-
frontation breaks down on dan-
gerous sectarian lines. The U.S.-
backed government is supported
largely by Sunnis, while the
opposition — led by the pro-
Syrian Hezbollah — enjoys wide
support among Shiites.
Lebanon’s Christians are split
between the two camps. Hezbol-
lah is demanding the formation
of a new government giving it

and its allies a larger share of |

power.

The standoff shows no sign of
waning despite calls from the
two sides for dialogue to resolve
their differences. The Arab




League secretary general has
visited to try to help, as did Jor-
dan’s foreign minister. Egypt’s
Beirut envoy also has been mak-
ing the rounds.

After several days of trading
accusations in the media, rival
Lebanese leaders opened direct
channels. A Sunni scholar in the
opposition went to the govern-
ment headquarters to discuss
ideas on resolving the crisis and
the government gave him its
own proposals, including the
‘possible expansion of the cur-
rent Cabinet to satisfy opposi-
tion demands, youth and sports
minister Ahmed Fatfat told
reporters.

Shiite leaders tried to put the
lid on the boiling sectarian ten-
sion and prevent revenge attacks
after the killing of 21-year-old
Shiite protester Ahmed Mah-
moud, who was shot while walk-
ing Sunday with other protesters
through the Sunni neighbor-
hood of Qasqas. Twenty one

_ people were wounded in the
violence.

-_ Coffin

In a Shiite district not far from

the shooting scene, Mahmoud’s ©

comrades from the Shiite Amal
party and relatives took turns
carrying his coffin. About 2,000
people, many holding Lebanese
and green Amal flags, marched
behind. A band played martial
music. Some of the Shiites beat
their heads with their hands in a
traditional sign of mourning.

The funeral march. made its
way to the Rawdat al-Shahidein
cemetery, where Sheik Abdul-
Amir Kabalan,.a senior Shiite
cleric, led the prayer over the
coffin amid wails of relatives and
calls of “God is great.”

“It is (religiously) prohibited :

for a Shiite to kill a Sunni, a
Sunni to kill a Shiite, a Druse
to kill a Shiite; a Shiite to kill a
Druse and a Christian to kill a
Muslim,” said Kabalan, deputy
leader of the Supreme Shiite
Council, the religious governing
body of the 1.2 million Shiites,
Lebanon’s largest sect. “It is

prohibited to fight each other, to
provoke and curse each other.”

Legislator Ayoub Hemayed, a .
senior member of Amal, a
major Hezbollah ally, urged sup-
porters to exercise restraint.

“We will not be dragged into
sedition. ... We are called upon
to remain one hand and unit-
ed.”

The calls to ease sectarian ten-
sion came amid warnings from
the army commander that the
trouble could get out of control
despite the deployment of thou-
sands of soldiers.

“The absence of political solu-

tions, along with the recurring

security incidents, particularly
those with a sectarian tinge,
drain the army’s resources and
weaken its neutrality,” Suleiman
was quoted by several newspa-
pers as saying.

“This weakness will make the
army unable to control the situ-
ation in all areas of Lebanon,”
he said.

The remarks were exception- -
al in that army officers are not:
allowed to make political state-
ments. A senior military official
declined to confirm or deny the
comments.

The army issued no statement
rebutting them.

Troops and armored cars
have taken up positions in vari-
ous parts of Beirut, particularly
around Saniora’s office complex.
Soldiers were also on duty in
the Sunni and mixed neighbor-
hoods where nightly riots with
sticks, bottles and sometimes

. gunfire have occurred.

The sectarian tension in the
Cabinet began to escalate last
month when six pro-Hezbollah
ministers resigned after Saniora
and the anti-Syrian majority in
parliament rejected the group’s
demand for a new national uni-

ty government that would effec-

tively give it and its allies veto
power.

Hezbollah says it will contin-
ue its protest campaign until
Saniora agrees to step down.
The prime minister — embold-
ened by Arab and U.S. support

_— has vowed to stay in

office.

ower surge,
glue-like material
may pose shuttle
launch problems

@ CAPE CANAVERAL

CONTINUALLY worsen-
ing weather forecasts and two
late-breaking technical wor-
ries created uncertainty
Wednesday about the planned
night launch of the space shut-
tle Discovery, according to
Associated Press.

NASA _ meteorologists
downgraded the chance for
good weather at the scheduled
9:35 p.m. EST Thursday
launch time to only 40 percent
with low, lingering clouds
more likely than not to pre-
vent liftoff.

“The ivrecast has trended
toward the worse,” NASA
shuttle weather officer Kathy
Winters said Wednesday
morning.

Along with concern about
the weather, engineers
planned to spend much of
Wednesday trying to decide
whether the two technical
problems — a brief power
surge and concerns about a
glue that helps protect seals
in the solid-fuel rocket boost-
ers — were minor or major.

It was too early to tell if
these would postpone Dis-
covery’s launch, launch inte-
gration manager LeRoy Cain
said at a Tuesday evening
news conference.

- Shuttle Test Director Jeff
Spaulding said in a Wednes-
day morning news conference
that he expected the power
surge issue to be cleared as
not a problem later in the day.
The split-second. power

surge occurred early Tuesday
when power was about to be
switched from the shuttle’s
launch platform to Discovery
itself. Early tests found that
the shuttle’s main engines,
boosters and external fuel
tank were OK after the power
burst, but NASA was not say-
ing the same about Discovery,
Cain said.

Concern about booster-seal
glue involved adhesive that
helps connect segments of the
solid rocket boosters.

Routine tests found that the
adhesive used on some of the
joints in the booster segments
might not be as strong as it
should be, but the problem
seemed to be minor, NASA
spokeswoman June Malone
said. The adhesive is primari-
ly designed as a thermal bar-
rier to protect the seal but is
one of many systems that keep
hot gas from escaping and is
not one of the main ones, she
said.

“The adhesive does not pro-
duce the seals,” Malone said.
The seal is produced mostly
by the pressure of the seg-
ments themselves, she said.

As NASA wrestled with the
technical issues, the weather

. outlook continued to get
.gloomier.

Each time meteorologists
updated their weather fore-
casts this week, the chance for
clear enough weather for a
launch dropped, going from
80 percent to 70 percent to 60
percent and, on Wednesday,
40 percent.

Winters said the main con-
cern was low-hanging clouds
associated with a slowly mov-
ing weather front.

If the clouds block Thurs-
day’s attempt, the weather will
get only worse on Friday and
Saturday. Because of project-
ed high wind, forecasters gave
NASA only a 30 percent
chance on Friday and a 40
percent chance for Saturday.
The weather gets more
promising after that with
Tuesday being the best day,

. Winters said.
NASA has four launch,

opportunities over five days, if
need be, to start the 12-day
mission.

. Aside from those potential
problems and the concern
about worsening weather,
NASA was marching toward
its first nighttime launch in
four years.

“We’re on track and on tar-
get for Thursday,” Cain said.

More lives lost in Iraq after

@ BAGHDAD, Iraq

A MORTAR attack killed

wounded dozens in a sec-

report, portions of which
were obtained by The Asso-
ciated Press.

The report called for the
Bush administration to try to
engage Syria and Iran in
diplomacy as part of an
effort to stabilize Iraq and
allow withdrawal of most
combat troops by early 2008.

The report warned that if
the situation continues to
deteriorate, there is a risk of
a “slide toward chaos (that)
could trigger the collapse of
Iraq’s government and a
humanitarian catastrophe.”

(Some Iraqis, while critical
of U.S. strategy in Iraq, said
they feared any new policy
would lead to more suffer-
ing for their country.

“They (U.S officials) are
defeated in Iraq. So they are
trying to seek for an outlet to
get out of their plight in Iraq.
And I think the outlet will
be at the expense of the Iraqi
people,” Maan al-Obeidi, a
professor and political ana-
lyst at al-Nahrain University
in Baghdad, told AP Televi-
sion News.

Statement

Falah:.Shanshal, a Shiite
lawmaker, said 115 of parlia-
ment’s 275 legislators have
signed a statement rejecting
the U.N. Security Council’s
vote to extend the mandate
of the 160,000 multinational
forces in Iraq for another
year, beginning Jan. 1.

At the time, Prime Minis-
ter Nouri al-Maliki said one
of his government’s priori-
ties was to assume full
responsibility for Iraq’s secu-
rity, but that it needed more
time.

“We demand to set a
timetable for the withdrawal
of the these forces from
Iraq,” a statement by the
lawmakers said. They have
made similar protests before
without any result.

Al-Maliki persisted, mean-
while, with efforts to curb
violence, urging university
professors and students to
ignore “the desperate
attempts” of a Sunni Arab
insurgent group to keep
them from class.

The group had sent e-mails
to students and posted signs
at schools and mosques say-

‘ing students should stay

away while it cleanses the
campuses of Shiite death
squads, according to a state-
ment from al-Maliki’s office
late Tuesday.

The government also

' announced the capture of:a

senior aide to Abu Hamza
al-Muhajir, also known as
Abu Ayyub al-Masri, who
took over as leader of al-Qai-
da in Iraq after his predeces-
sor Abu Musab al-Zarqawi
was killed in a U.S. airstrike
in June.

Mouwafak al-Rubaie, the
government’s national secu-
rity adviser, said U.S. and
Iraqi forces captured the
aide, though he did not spec-
ify where or when. He said
three-fifths of al-Qaida in
Iraq’s leadership has now
been captured or killed.

Coalition forces have also
detained several leaders of
Ansar al-Sunnah, an insur-

. gent group allied with al-Qai-
‘da in Iraq, al-Rubaie added.

“The noose is tightening
around Abu Ayyub al-Masri,
and I can say with all confi-
dence that al-Qaida in Iraq is
undergoing a very real lead-
ership crisis,” al-Rubaie said
at a news conference.

The U.S. commaad said a
USS. soldier was killed during
combat in Baghdad on Sun-
day, raising to at least 2,907
the number of members of
the U.S. military who have
died since the beginning of
the war in 2003.

Attacks by suspected Sun-
ni insurgents and Shiite mili-
tias began soon after sunrise
Wednesday.

Brig. Muhssin Qassim al-
Yassiri, head of a security
force that guards the Educa-
tion Ministry, narrowly
escaped an assassination
attempt when gunmen
opened fire on his vehicle in
west Baghdad, killing his dri-
ver, a police officer said on

condition of anonymity -

because he is not authorized
to talk to the media.

Five minutes earlier, a
roadside bomb exploded

near a police patrol in east

Baghdad, but caused no
casualties, police Capt.
Mohammed Abdul-Ghani
said.

A bomb also exploded
near a shop in Iskandariyah,
30 miles south of Baghdad,
killing four people and
wounding 12.°

Six mortar rounds missed a
Sunni mosque, but exploded
near homes, wounding two
civilians in west Baghdad.
Drive-by shootings and mor-
tar attacks north and south
of the capital killed four
Iraqis and wounded five.

U.S. ground and air forces
also conducted a raid target-
ing foreign insurgents near
the Iranian border, killing a
militant who opened fire on
an aircraft, the U.S. com-
mand said.

Outposts

The early morning raid
took place near Khanaqin, a
remote desert area 87 miles
northeast of Baghdad where
USS. forces have helped Iraqi
soldiers set up outposts

designed to stop foreign .

insurgents and their weapons
supplies from crossing into
Iraq.

A coalition aircraft was
leaving the raid when it took
small arms fire from a vehi-
cle below; it returned fire,
destroying the vehicle and
killing its armed insurgent,
the command said.

One suspected militant
also was detained in the raid,

_which resulted in no U.S.

casualties, the statement
said.

A new poll by WorldPub-
licOpinion.org, meanwhile,
found that 75 percent of
Americans believe that in
order to stabilize Iraq the
U.S. should enter into talks
with Iran and Syria, and
nearly 80 percent support an
international conference on
Iraq. fig

A majority also oppose

keeping U.S. forces in Iraq:
indefinitely and instead sup-

port committing. .to..a
timetable for their with-

a

less, the poll found. It was

conducted Nov, 21-29, ques-

Brazil cancels flights at three
big airports after air traffic
communications breakdown ©

@ SAO PAULO, Brazil

VIRTUALLY all takeoffs
from three major airports in
Brazil were canceled Tuesday
night after an air traffic com-
munications system broke
down, making it difficult for
controllers to communicate
with pilots and creating air
travel chaos, according to
Associated Press.

Brazil’s Civil Aviation
Authority said in a statement
that takeoffs were banned at
the airport in the capital of
Brasilia and in the large central
city of Belo Horizonte. Many
takeoffs were also canceled at
the airport in Sao Paulo that
handles domestic flights,
though the authority allowed
flights to continue on the busy
Sao Paulo-Rio de Janeiro shut-
tle route.

- Authorities were still allow-
ing planes to land at the three
airports and almost all inter-
national flights departing Sao
Paulo, Brazil’s largest city, take
off from a separate airport

‘unaffected by the government

order. But the Belo Horizonte
and Brasilia airports also serve
some international destina-.
tions, and all takeoffs were
prohibited from those airports.

The problem emerged when
a communications system in
Brasilia inexplicably broke
down, reducing the number of
radio frequencies and making

_ it hard for controllers to reach
pilots flying commercial jets in

some of Brazil’s busiest air
traffic corridors, the govern-
ment’s Agencia Brasil news
agency reported.

Federal police discounted
the possibility of sabotage, say-
ing the problem appeared to
be technical and that they
would only investigate if asked
by Brazil’s ‘military, which runs
the air traffic control system
in Latin America’s largest
country, Brazil’s Agencia Esta-
do news agency reported.

The breakdown initially
caused huge delays Tuesday
morning, prompting passen-
gers to sleep on airport floors.
Authorities decided later to
cancel the takeoffs at the three
airports until the communica-

“tions system, is repaired.

‘the system could be repaired

up with more than a month of

by a job protest by controllers.

Following Brazil’s worst-
ever air crash disaster in-Sep-
tember, the controllers began
following regulations to the let-

ter in a protest that signifi- —

cantly slowed operations and is
having a financial impact on

~ Brazilian airlines.

Under the “work to rule”
campaign, they have refused
to handle more than the num-
ber of flights recommended
under international standards
and are strictly observing times
between landings and takeoffs.

Australian
Parliament
lifts ban on
therapeutic
cloning

CANBERRA, Australia

AUSTRALIA’S Parlia-
ment on Wednesday lifted a
four-year ban on cloning
human embryos for stem cell
research despite opposition
from the prime minister and
other party leaders, accord-
ing to Associated Press.

The legislation, which
makes Australia the latest
country to allow cloning for
stem cell research, passed 82-
62 in the House, where Con-
servative Prime Minister John
Howard and other major par-
ty leaders voted against it.
The bill was passed by the
Senate last month.

“In the end you have to
take a stand for some
absolutes in our society,”
Howard told Parliament.
“And I think what we’re talk-
ing about here is a moral
absolute and that is why I
can’t support the legislation.”

Parliament passed Aus-
tralia’s first laws on stem cell
research in 2002, allowing sci-
entists to extract stem cells
from spare embryos intend-
ed for in-vitro fertilization but
preventing cell cloning.

The law passed Wednesday
allows therapeutic cloning,
the splicing of DNA from
skin cells into eggs to produce
stem cells, also known as mas-
ter cells, which are capable of
forming all the tissues of the
human body.

Scientists hope stem cell
research will eventually lead
to treatments for conditions
including Parkinson’s and
Alzheimer’s, as well as spinal
cord injuries, diabetes and
arthritis.

Opponents said the bill
promoted unproven science
that did not respect the
human rights of the unborn.

Defense Minister Brendan
Nelson spoke out in favor of
it, saying his generation had
benefited enormously from
those who pioneered difficult
research and legislation.







Pam hits the right

note at the Hilto

AFTER five years, the
British Colonia] Hilton has a
new entertainment act — and it
will be a hard act to follow.

Bahamian-born musician,
jazz pianist and vocalist Pam
Woods is the new addition to
the Hilton brand in Nassau.

Once just a little girl from
Meadow Street in Bain Town,
Pam is today a seasoned per-
former and well-travelled
Bahamian star.

She has performed the world
over, in places as diverse as
England, Russia, Scotland,
Canada, Bermuda, Jamaica,
United Arab Emirates, Turks
Island and the United States.

And through her travels, Pam
has realised one great thing
through her music — that “peo-
ple are people all over the
world.”

On Saturday, December 2,
Pam had her opening night as
the British Colonial Hilton’s
newest attraction, accompanied
by two equally talented

Bahamian musicians — acoustic °

bass player, Adrian D’ Aguilar
and drummer, Mario Lord.
The trio is happy to join
forces after years of feverishly
wanting to harmonise their

_ skills.

‘The Palm Court Lounge’s
new entertainment at the
British Colonial Hilton will fea-
ture blues and jazz, with Pam
on Wednesdays and Thursdays
from 7pm to 11pm and Fridays
from 8pm until midnight. The
trio. - Pam, Adrian and Mario —
will perform-every Saturday
from 7pm until midnight.

Opal Gibson, director of busi-
ness development at the Hilton,
says the event seeks to offer
something new to the image of

- Hilton entertainment and will

be an upscale, sophisticated

- €nvironment where visitors —

tourists and Bahamians — can
relax, have drinks and share an
evening with friends.

Alex Dawes, the Hilton’s

. director cf operations, believes ,

lege.

the upscale atmosphere creat-
ed by this new group of artists
falls directly in line with what
leisure and business travellers
want at the British Colonial
Hilton.

Pam is in fact no stranger to
Nassau’s Hilton. This will be
the third time since her teenage
years that she has performed at
this venue — the first time being
at the old Wharf Restaurant
where she played at intermis-
sion.

Pam’s sister Tanya is also a
musician, as are a few of her

brothers. In a seven-sibling-

strong family of artistically and
musically inclined parents and
children, Pam was encouraged
to make music since the time
she attended the Government
High School.

She would play the piano at
school assemblies — with con-
structive criticism from her
peers — and on the organ at her
church. It was here that her
future in music became dis-
tinctly visible to those around
her.

Then, Tribune publisher Sir
Etienne Dupuch approached
Pam’s father, Sidney, (a piano
artist in his own right) about
sending his daughter off to col-

Pam described how Sir Eti-
enne’s interest in her future
really got her father to think-
ing about sending his daughter
away for further education.

“In those days, it wasn’t com-
mon for girls to go to college —
they were really trained to be

‘wives and mothers — ‘barefoot

and pregnant’ — as the saying

" goes.”

But Sir Etienne saw some-
thing in Pam that encouraged
her to grab hold of her future.
She said she is “eternally grate-
ful” to him for that.

Opening lead — jack of clubs.

Running a long suit when you are
declarer frequently creates problems
for the defense. First, there is the
chance that one of the defenders, not
knowing your exact hand, will make
a discarding error; second, there is
the chance that a defender won’t be
able to discard safely because he can-
not guard two or more suits.

Consider this deal where you.

East. West leads a club, and you ruff.

East cannot discard successfully

card a spade or a heart.

a heart to the ace and return the seven
