Named Caribbean’s
worst for physical
and sexual violence

'. i By PACO NUNEZ
Tribune News Editor

THE Bahamas has the high-
est number of reported rapes
in the world and surpasses all
other Caribbean countries in
physical and sexual violence,
according to a new study.

The product of a collabora-
tion between the United
Nations Office on Drugs
(UNODC) and the World
Bank, the study calculates its
findings per hundred thousand
(pht) of the population per
year.

In a region with the highest
rate of violent death in the
world, the findings show that
the Bahamas tops the list with
21.2 murders pht — more than
double the worldwide average.

The next highest rate of vio-
lent death in the region is St
Vincent and the Grenadines,
with 13 murders pht.

The Bahamas also has the
highest rate of physical assault
—more than seven times that of
the second highest, Jamaica.

Rape is a common problem
throughout the region, accord-
ing to the study, which says
that three of the top 10 rape
rates in the world are in the
Caribbean.

It said the Bahamas records
133 rapes pht — about nine
times. the world average.
Swaziland in Africa follows

with 121 pht.

The study said: “Rape is
greatly under-reported every-
where in the world, and rela-
tively high recorded rape rates
can actually be due to high lev-
els of trust that reporting will
result in positive outcomes for
the victim. But given the fact
that most of the rapes reported
did occur, high rape rates do
reflect a serious problem.”

It also noted that a regional
study carried out in 1997-1998
in nine Caribbean .countries,
including the Bahamas, found
that “48 per cent of adolescent
girls’ sexual initiation was
‘forced’ or ‘somewhat forced’
in these nine countries.”

The study said that, “in sum,
violence against women seems
to be endemic in Caribbean
countries — as it is in most
countries around the world.”

Jamaica

Jamaica tops the list of crim-
inal deportees expelled from
the US, with. the Bahamas hav-
ing the second most in the
region.

In this area, however, the
Bahamas seems to be improv-
ing, the number of deportees
dropping from 35 pht to 32 pht
between 2000 and 2004.

Researchers said the
strongest explanation for the

high rates of violence in the
region — “and their apparent
rise in recent years” — is drug
trafficking.

“The drug trade drives crime
in a number of ways: through
violence tied to trafficking, by
normalising illegal behaviour
by diverting criminal justice
resources from other activities,
by provoking property crime
related to addiction, by con-
tributing to the widespread
availability of firearms, and by
undermining and corrupting
societal institutions,” they said
in the report’s summary.

Researchers noted the effect
of crime on tourism, describing
it as “anathema for this indus-
try”.

They also said that evidence
suggests criminal activity may
be at least partially responsi-
ble for the exodus of talented
and qualified nationals which is
affecting many economies in
the region.

The report says that
researchers “culled many dif-
ferent sources of data” to pre-
sent a picture of crime and vio-
lence that is as comprehensive
as possible.

It noted, however, that there
were certain “data gaps” —
chief among them the lack of
regular victimisation surveys
that would allow comparisons
between crime rates across the
region and over time.

e

GIVING his first address to
the nation from Government
House, Prime Minister Hubert
Ingraham yesterday announced
three of his Cabinet Ministers.

Brent Symonette, candidate-
elect for St Anne’s, was sworn

in as Deputy Prime Minister . |

and Minister of Foreign
Affairs:

Tothmy Turnquest, candi-
date-elect for Mount Moriah,
was sworn in as Minister of
National Security.

Claire Hepburn, a partner in
the law firm Graham Thomp-
son, was announced as the new
Attorney General, but could
not be sworn in yesterday as
she was out of the country on a
family matter.

Prior to her career in law,
Mrs Hepburn was a lecturer
of history at the College of
the Bahamas, served as the
chairman of the Broadcasting
Corporation of the Bahamas
from 1992 to 1994 and as the
chairman of the Gaming
Board from 1994 to 2002. She
is a lecturer at the Eugene
Dupuch Law School in civil
procedure.

Prime Minister Ingraham
said that the other candidates-
elect will be sworn in on Mon-
day, and Cabinet posts and
portfolios will be announced
on Wednesday next week.

The atmosphere in the lower
gardens of Government House
was jubilant yesterday after-
noon as FNM supporters gath-
ered to hear the new prime
minister address the nation.

applause by the crowd — with
Mr Turnquest and Mr Symon-
ette garnering the most enthu-
siastic responses outside of Mr
Ingraham.

They were followed by the

new prime minister, Mr Ingra-
ham, who had already been
sworn in during a private cere-
mony at Government House
at 8am yesterday.

Investigation begins

Higgs taking legal
advice on Fox Hill
after election loss

@ By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter

DR Jacinta Higgs, the FNM candidate for Fox Hill, is seeking
legal advice on how to proceed after it was officially announced
on Friday that she lost — by 63 votes — to Fox Hill incumbent, and
former foreign affairs minister, Fred Mitchell.

Whether this would lead to Mitchell's victory being contested
in the election court, Dr Higgs would not conjecture. However,
she declared she “will not stop” until she “gets Mr Mitchell out of
there” - whether it is she who takes his place, or someone else, as
she feels he is a negative force in the historic community.

Yesterday, Dr Higgs described the run-up to, and during the
election, as one of "most insidious kind of political experiences"
she had known, alleging that she and her team were aware of a
variety of activities that needed to be investigated.

These include allegations that PLP workers were "flooding
the area with bribery" in the days prior to the election, and that
one was able to collect a large number of voters’ cards from a Fox
Hill collection point, thereby forcing Fox Hill voters to come
directly to PLP operatives to pick up their cards.

Cuban Coast Guard

kill two on speedboat

registered in Bahamas

@ By ALEXANDRIO MORLEY
Tribune Staff Reporter

TWO people were killed and one wounded when the Cuban
Coast Guard was involved in a shoot-out with four persons on a
Bahamas-registered speedboat on Monday, according to inter-
national reports.

Yesterday, Cuba’s national newspaper reported that at 12.23 pm
on April 30, 2007, in the Boca de Jauco area of the Maisi munic-
ipality in Guantanamo, a speedboat with a Bahamas registration
plate GB 0744, three outboard motors and four crew members,
was spotted travelling through Cuban territorial waters from
south to north, heading for the Paso de los Vientos, at a speed of
about 20 knots and between five and six miles from the coastline.

The report said that during the operation to identify and inter-
cept the vessel — some five miles south of Punta Sigua — it attempt-
ed to evade the border guard traps, did not obey repeated calls
to stop and collided with the Cuban Border Guard Speedboat 45
and fired shots at the vessel.

The report stated that at this point the Cuban boat was forced
to retaliate.

after Haitian shot by
Defence Force officer

@ By BRENT DEAN

A DEFENCE Force officer shot a Haitian man in the Cowpen
Road area yesterday, leading to an investigation of the incident by
both the police and defence forces.

When The Tribune arrived at the accident and emergency sec-
tion of Princess Margaret Hospital, a distraught relative of the
injured man had been waiting for hours to see him.

The relative expressed frustration at how Haitians are treated
by Bahamian authorities, saying the incident is indicative of the
heavy-handed tactics often used against people with little recourse.

The injured man, whose name has not yet been released, is
being treated at Princess Margaret Hospital, where he is also in
police custody, according to Chief Supt Hulan Hanna.

Mr Hanna said the man was shot after getting involved in a
struggle with defence force officers.

The officers, he said, were engaged in official duties when the
incident occurred. However, he did not specify what these duties
were, and the defence force has been quiet on the matter.

With both forces investigating, Mr Hanna told The Tribune that
the police investigation will be to determine if any criminal activ-
ity occurred, while the defence force will focus on determining

Bannister: people of Bahamas
knew it was time for a change

@ By ALEXANDRIO MORLEY
Tribune Staff Reporter

THE Bahamian people have
been "thirsty" for leadership for
the last five years, FNM mem-
ber of parliament elect
Desmond Bannister told The
Tribune yesterday.

Mr Bannister said that vot-
ers were fed up with the inef-
fective leadership of Prime Min-
ister Perry Christie.

And he also said the FNM
had expected victory at the polls
on Wednesday.

The official results of the May
2 general election show that the
Free National Mévement won

23 of the 41 seats in parliament.

In 2002, the Progressive Lib-

eral Party won by a landslide,

taking 29 seats in parliament.
But this time around, Prime

Minister Christie gets the dis-
tinction of being the country's
first single-term prime minister
since the Bahamas won its inde-

pendence from Britain in 1973.

Carmichael

Desmond Bannister won the
Carmichael constituency, with a
victory over PLP incumbent
John Carey and BDM candi-
date Tolonus Sands. ;

At an FNM rally in the Gold-
en Gates Shopping Centre in
February, Mr Bannister said:
“Carmichael is FNM country,
and Carmichael can’t wait to
send their do-nothing, unpro-
ductive MP home to early
retirement.”

“Mr Bannister told his sup-

porters: “You just can’t trust

Carey to keep his promises.
Carey promised that by 2003 he
would have introduced an after-
school programme in
Carmichael.”

Yesterday, Mr Bannister said

. the FNM was not surprised

that the Bahamian electorate
voted them in as the new gov-
ernment.

“It is absolutely clear that
the Bahamian people for the
last five years have been
thirsty for leadership and
Hubert Ingraham offered them
a leadership that they could
trust and that they know
exists," he said.

“The voters know that Mr
Ingraham is a kind of leader
who is not going to take any
nonsense and he will deal with

the affairs of this country inthe ~

manner that they expect. "

Hi DESMOND Bannister

“Askedavhat the new FNM
government will focus on in the

Independent:
FNM still the |

next five years , Mr Bannister

_ said that their manifesto has a

number of issues that are easily
measurable.

"And, at the end of five
years the FNM wants the
Bahamian people to be able to
judge them on what was actu-
ally accomplished compared to
what they had promised to
do,” he said.

The FNM's manifesto stated
that their key objectives were,
among other things, to restore
trust in government, to deepen
and strengthen democracy, to
improve the delivery of the pub-
lic service and to ensure sus-
tainable economic develop-
ment.

“And if we don't do them,
the people will kick us out and

‘put someone élse in,” Mr Ban-

nister said.

— best choice
for Bahamas

® By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport
Reporter

FREEPORT -— Despite his
decision to run as an indepen-
dent candidate, Grand Bahama
businessman Michael Edwards
said that he is still an FNM and
believes that the FNM is the
best political party for the coun-
try.

Mr Edwards was one of three
candidates who ran in Marco
City. FNM candidate Zhivargo
Laing was successful in captur-
ing the seat held by Freeport
attorney Pleasant Bridgewater.

Mr Laing won the seat by a very ,

small margin — less than 50
votes.

Mr Edwards congratulated
Mr Laing on his victory in Mar-
co City, and his re-entry into
front-line politics.

“The people have spoken in

-Marco City, and I accept their

decision as to whom they have
chosen to represent them in the
halls of parliament for five
years,” he said.

Mr Edwards said that his
defeat in Marco City has not
discouraged him. “I am disap-
pointed, but I want to thank the
people of Marco City for their
support. I will always remain at
the front-line of the issues and
be the voice of the less fortu-
nate and down trodden,” he
said.

Even while launching his
independent campaign, Mr
Edwards had insisted that he
was still a member of the FNM.

When asked his position, now
that the election is over, he said:
“My position has not changed. I
am still a member of the FNM.
It’s just that I decided to run as
an independent candidate ind
there are just some things tha.

you have to do on principle.

“T still believe that the FNM
is best political party for the
country. But, we strayed from
our original philosophy in 1997,
and it cost us the election.”

It is not yet known if FNM
supporters will be forgiving and
welcome Edwards back with
open arms, as the votes he

received in the election could ©

have extended the margin of
victory for Mr Laing.

On the other hand, Mr
Edwards’ participation may
have also prevented Ms Bridge-
water from retaining her seat.

At the outset of his campaign,
Mr Edwards had stated that his
intention to run as an indepen-
dent candidate was never to

take away votes from either,

candidate.

“Tam humbled by the oppor-
tunity to run an above board
campaign, and I want to thank
the people of Marco City who
supported me. One of the nicest
things was that so many resi-
dents were courteous, accom-
modating, and hospitable when
we visited their homes.”

Mr Edwards congratulated
FNM leader Hubert Ingraham
on his victory in the election.

“The election came down to
Mr Ingraham and Mr Christie.

Mr Ingraham’s leadership is dis- -

tinctly different from Mr
Christie. He has exhibited the
style of leadership that was
good for the country 15 years
ago.

“I thought he did an excel-
lent job as prime minister, but
not as leader of the party. But,
Mr Ingraham has said that he is
changed man, and that he is wis-
er now,” he said.

Mr Edwards said now that
the election is over, Bahamians
can unite as a people.



PLP to keep
looking at

election

results

THE PLP will continue to
review their legal position on
the outcome of the general
elections, according to out-
going prime minister Perry
Christie.

Mr Christie was addressing
a crowd of PLP supporters
who came out to the Sir Lyn-

den Pindling Centre on-Far-- -

rington Road on Thursday
night, in the hopes that there
was some truth to the
rumours that their party had
infact won.

“Our lawyers will contin-
ue to review our legal posi-
tion because there are con-
cerns that we have, and I
shan’t comment on those con-
cerns at this stage because the
concerns are based on infor-
mation provided me, which
must be established to my sat-
isfaction before I’m able to
speak publicly. I can tell you
I’m very sad,” Mr Christie
said.

He told the crowd that, “all
day our lawyers and candi-
dates have been locked into
rooms with election officials
going through re-counts. It
appears that we will not be
successful in this election. It is
very, very close.”

Mr Christie explained that
the Free National Movement
won some seats by 50 votes or
fewer.

“The question of gover-

nance and being able to gov- .

ern effectively will obviously
arise," Mr Christie continued.
“In the meantime, you have
heard me say on so many
occasions that I love you too
much for me to cause you to
be in any position where
there could be a public con-
frontation.”

He told supporters to avoid
any hostility when the offi-
cial results are announced.

“It’s very interesting for
seats to be won by 50 votes or
less," he added. "And so lis-
ten now; I want you to know
that it is important for all of
us to be strong. There are
many of our members and

supporters who are very sick -

and very worried over this
matter, but you have a leader
who has come too far to turn
back now.”

Mr. Christie asked PLP
supporters to return to their

homes as he planned to call.

them together shortly to dis-
cuss with them “the way for-
ward”.

“This will. give me an
opportunity to walk on the
streets, every street and every
corner throughout this island
and throughout the Com-
monwealth and remember,
we will not let up; we will not
let go and we will not turn
back,” Mr Christie said. “For-
ward ever, backward never.

"The rumours have been
grounded on the fact that
these elections have been
won on the basis that if 20
people or 25 people had vot-
ed for the PLP instead of the
FNM, the PLP would have
won the seat," Mr Christie
said, "as close as that."

"Leave here knowing that
you’ve seen me," Mr Christie
said, "knowing that I’m
strong and knowing that I’m
committed to ‘forward ever,
backward never’ and that ’m
committed to your cause and
to representing your cause
and to let you know that you
have put enough members in
the House of Assembly to be
able to look them straight in
the eye and to let them know
that this country could only
be governed if we are a part
of that [governance].”

He said PLPs are strong
and powerful in the Bahamas
and they have proven that.

"So now, knowing that
you're strong, knowing that
your leader is with you, let us
all agree to hug each other,
kiss each other and say good-
night to Gambier House for
the time being and then until
I see you again, which will be
very soon, when I call, I want
to see you be there," Mr
Christie said. “PLP! PLP!
PLP! All the way!"

Two face
charge of
marijuana
possession

A 30-YEAR-OLD man
and a 17-year-old girl were
arraigned in magistrate’s
court yesterday on a drug
charge.

It was alleged that Ker-
rington Knowles and the 17 -
year-old were found in pos-
session of a quantity of mari-
juana, which authorities
believed they intended to
supply to another.

The accused, who were
arraigned before magistrate
Carolita Bethel at Court eight
Bank Lane, pleaded not
guilty to the charges and were
granted bail in the sum of
$10,000.

According to the prosecu-
tion, the accused were found
in possession of one pound
of marijuana.

The matter was adjourned
to October 24.

Cuba says
army officer
killed in
hijack attempt

@ HAVANA

FUGITIVE soldiers killed
an army officer they took
hostage early Thursday in a
failed attempt to hijack a plane
bound for the United States,
the Interior Ministry said,
according to Associated Press.

The two escaped recruits
were arrested after Army Lt.
Col. Victor Ibo Acuna
Velazquez was killed aboard
the plane on an airport tar-
mac in the aborted hijacking,
a ministry statement said. .

The incident began before
dawn, when the fugitives
commandeered a regular city
bus and forced it to be dri-
ven into the airport and onto
the tarmac of Terminal 2,
which services charter flights
between the Cuban capital
and the United States.

While .
colonel was killed aboard the
plane, there were no crew
members or passengers
aboard the aircraft, the state-
ment said. The plane’s sched-
uled destination was
unknown, but most of the
charter flights out of Terminal
2 fly to Miami.

“Despite being unarmed,
(Acuna) heroically tried to
prevent the commission of
the terrorist act,” the state-
ment said. Passengers on the
commandeered bus were
unharmed, it added.

The ministry blamed US
policies that Havana says
encourage Cubans to emi-
grate to the United States and
Washington’s tolerance for
violence against the commu-
nist-run country.

School staff horr



sixth break-in this year

@ By NATARIO McKENZIE

TEACHERS and staff at
Ridgeland Primary School were
upset and dismayed yesterday
upon discovering that brazen
vandals had broken into the
school and rummaged several
offices late Thursday night.

Although the culprits were
reportedly unable to escape
with anything, school officials
say they feel as though the
school is being targeted, as the
break-in was the sixth this year.

On Friday morning teachers
and students returned to the
school only to find that several
administrative offices had been
ransacked and five computer
monitors, one flat screen moni-
tor, two computer towers, four
keyboards, two printers and two
televisions had been left in the
schoolyard. All the items were
reportedly brand new.

According to school officials,
security personnel at the school
were fortunately able to thwart
the theft.

When The Tribune arrived
at the school shortly after 10am
Friday, the items had not been
moved, though police had
already dusted the items for fin-
gerprints. The Tribune was
directed to three offices in the
school’s administrative block
which had been ransacked with
papers, books, and other items
left in disorder on the floor.

It was apparent that one door
had been prised opened while
another appeared to have been
opened after a sheet rock wall
was kicked in. Visibly dismayed
Ruth Smith, shop steward for
Ridgeland Primary School,

spoke to The Tribune yester-
day.

“It is very disturbing for
Ridgeland primary’s teachers,
students and staff to come here
this morning to find all of our
computers in the yard and
school disrupted,” she said.

According to Ms Smith, even
more disturbing was the fact
that two young boys were
apparently involved in the
break-in, which was reportedly
discovered around 11.45 pm
Thursday by a security officer
working the night shift, as well
as a janitress.

Security

As the security was report-
edly entering the yard two
young boys who were watching
the items fled. Upon seeing this,
the security guard checked the
school’s offices only to find
them in shambles.

“In January, the lock to the
entry of the tuck shop was
picked and they carried all the
juices and the corn dogs. On
another day in January they
entered through the window of
the tuck shop by removing the
hinges. They carried all the
juices and the corn dogs. On
February 18 entry was made
through the middle door of the
administrative block. All rooms
were broken into, including the
principal’s office and the prin-
cipal’s personal laptop comput-
er and other small devices such
as her radio, DVDs and VHS
were taken.

“On February 25 they
entered through the bathroom

window in the principal’s office
and they took the remaining
devices that were there. On
March 2 an entry was made by
cutting a hole in the middle of
the door of the administrative
block rooms where they tam-
pered with everything but noth-
ing was removed except for a
jar of pennies,” she said.

All of these incidents have
been reported to police and the
Ministry of Education, Ms
Smith said.

“T don’t know what to say. .

I’m just puzzled because I just
moved here two years ago and,
talking to the teachers, this has
never happened before,” Ms
Smith said.

“The teachers are just putting
the classrooms back together.
They were all torn apart when
we came back in August. We
have not even quite settled
down as yet,” she said.

Chief Supt Hulan Hanna said
police intend to continue to
liaise with schools and local
businesses to help alleviate van-
dalism.

“It is a concern for us that
there are adults who are using
young persons because of their
size and perhaps naiveté to
assist them in committing crim-
inal acts. We intend to work
with the schools and public
places where persons are
repeatedly taking advantage of
a situation,” he said.

“This is a school we will have
to work with to ensure that we
apprehend these persons and
that government property is not
criminally removed from school
premises,” Mr Hanna said.

Ingraham ‘must heal §
wounds of country’

Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham now has to get to work on
healing a “deeply wounded”
society, it was claimed last night.

He will have to restore basic
trust in the government and its

_institutions, said academic Felix

Bethel.

His comments came in
response to the FNM’s close
victory over the PLP, which fol-
lowed a tense day of recounts
on Thursday.

Mr Bethel said Mr Ingraham
had been given “a fairly slim
mandate” but his mission must
be to heal a deeply wounded
society.

“It needs a set of men who
are literally healers,” he said,
“T hope this is what Ingraham is
all about.”

He said social progress does-
n’t just happen, it has to be engi-
neered. He cited crime, educa-
tion and immigration as key

-areas of concern.

“The PLP’s dependence on
anchor projects missed the
boat,” said Mr Bethel. “If Ingra-
ham is as wise as I believe him
to be, he will move towards
cooling the temperatue on
anchor projects and focus on
the institutions.”

He said Justice John Lyons’
attack on the independence of
the judiciary had been the “tor-
pedo” that brought the PLP
down because it went “right to
the heart of governance.”

He said Mr Christie should
now resign as PLP leader to allow
the party to consider its future,
“which can’t be with Christie or
anyone chosen by him.”

“Mr Christie is exhausted. He

has fulfilled his lifelong ambi-

tion,” he added.

“We don’t need to be told
anymore about the $20 billion
investments - they mean noth-
ing to those who are hurting.
The PLP must get in touch with
the heartbeat of the Bahamian
people.”

Mr Ingraham, he said, should
move post haste to deal with
Haitian immigration.

“Lynden Pindling left the
most terrible piece of legisla-
tion on the books which deter-
mined that you can be born
here but not be a citizen,” he
said.

“It has created a monstrosity
that begs to be regularised. If
you have been in the Bahamas
for ten years or more, you
should be given permanent res-
idency and if you have children
in the Bahamas, they should be
citizens at birth.”

to help bring down the PLP.

“T feel like Samson when he

He said the electorate had
given the “inept” PLP govern-

The PLP had secured “a bad
place in history” as the govern-
ment serving the shortest term.

Meanwhile, Mr Bethel
praised The Tribune for doing
“a superb job” in the run-up to
the election.

He said the newspaper had
been true to its motto - “Being

of no master” - and been fear-
less in its approach.

“The Tribune is an institution
in the Bahamas with high cred-
ibility. That is why its message
resonates,” he added.

Mugabe warns Catholic bishops

HARARE, Zimbabwe — President Robert
Mugabe told Roman Catholic bishops who
issued a letter blaming him for the country’s
political and economic turmoil they had cho-
sen “a dangerous path,” and church officials
said Friday a priest had been briefly detained
for passing the pastoral message on to his con-
gregation.

The arrested priest and a member of his
congregation were released without charge
after spending 24 hours in jail last month, said
Father Oskar Wermter of the Catholic social
communications secretariat in Harare.

Later on Friday, police arrested two promi-
nent lawyers who have specialized in human
rights issues.

The pastoral letter signed by all of the coun-
try’s nine bishops called on Mugabe to end

’ oppression in the country and allow for demo-
cratic reform. It also warned that violent con-
frontation and deepening economic hardships
were pushing the nation close to a flash point.

“The bishops have decided to turn political.
And once they turn political, we regard them
as no longer being spiritual,” Mugabe said of
the letter.

“Our relations with them would be con-
ducted as political entities, and this is quite a

, dangerous path they have chosen for them-
selves,” Mugabe was quoted as saying.

He cailed the pastoral letter “political non-
sense.”

Church officials said since the pastoral letter
was distributed across the country to coincide
with Easier services, state agents visited

Catholic churches and questioned worship-
pers over their understanding of the bishops’
message.

The priest arrested had evidently given
prominence to the letter in services in north-
ern Harare.

Wermter said Mugabe’s response was to be
expected.“What is surprising is that he kept
silent for so long. People have reacted to the
letter very positively and maybe that is riling
him,” Wermter said.

Western governments have imposed sanc-
tions on Zimbabwe to protest Mugabe’s
human rights record. Investment and foreign
loans have dried up in six years of political and
economic turmoil following the often-violent
seizures of thousands of white-owned farms
that began in 2000. Inflation, running at more
than 2,000 per cent annually, is the highest in
the world.

Opposition activists and civic leaders along
with independent journalists accused of giving
credence to calls for “regime change” in Zim-
babwe have frequently been arrested and
assaulted in efforts to silence them.

Attorney Sternford Moyo said police arrest-
ed lawyers Alec Muchadehama and Andrew
Makoni at their Harare offices late Friday
and held them at the main Harare police jail,
allegedly for attempting to pervert the course
of justice.

The two lawyers are currently representing
a group of jailed opposition activists wHo have
denied involvement in a series of petrol bomb-
ings since early March.

Former Iranian leader meets Pope

VATICAN CITY — Former Iranian Pres-
ident Mohammad Khatami met Friday with
Pope Benedict XVI for talks the Vatican
hoped would help heal tensions left from the
pontiff’s remarks on Islam and violence, but
the Iranian said the wounds were still very
deep.

Khatami, a reformist in power from 1997
to 2005, had been scheduled to meet with
Benedict in October but the meeting was can-
celled. No reason was given, but it was just
weeks after Benedict’s speech in Germany
about Islam touched off protests across the
Muslim world.

On Friday, the two men spoke about the
importance of “a serene dialogue between
cultures intended to overcome the grave ten-
sions that mark our times,” the Vatican said in
a statement after their 30-minute meeting.

But visiting a Catholic university in Rome
before the talks, Khatami said that “unfortu-
nately the wounds of this world are very deep
and they cannot be healed easily and a single

NOTICE

NOTICE is hereby given that HYACINTH FLETCHER of

meeting may not be enough,” the ANSA news
agency quoted him as responding to a question
about Benedict’s speech.

Relations between Muslims and Christians
were badly strained after Benedict quoted a
Byzantine emperor who characterized some of
the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad as
“evil and inhuman,” particularly “his com-
mand to spread by the sword the faith.”

Benedict expressed regret that Muslims
were offended. As a sign of improved rela-
tions, he made a successful visit to predomi-
nantly Muslim Turkey in November.

It was Khatami’s second meeting with a
pope, following an audience with Pope John
Paul II in 1999, two years after the Iranian
had taken office.

Earlier in Rome, addressing an academic
gathering at the Pontifical Gregorian Univer-
sity, Khatami said dialogue between Islam and
Christianity must concentrate on a “sincere
and practical commitment” to “eliminate ter-
rorism and the great military conflicts.”



A complaint
over quality

control at ZNS —

EDITOR, The Tribune

PAKESIA Edgecombe and
Ricardo Lightbourne, have they
ever heard of subtle? These two
people’s habitual conclusion of
the news from Grand Bahama,
filled with flirtation and
squawking, not only boarders
on but is outright vulgar and
should be disallowed — disal-
lowed that I’d not need to
switch my TV off when they are
most ridiculous or avoid them
altogether. What they attempt
to mix with the news I find dis-
tracting and distasteful.

Their antics suggest that the
job at hand were ever so simple
and so well accomplished. It’s
not. In my opinion they are
both less than professional -
what’s required of them, less
than perfected.

Of Pakesia Edgecombe I
must say, a pretty face does not
give her the right to make a
mockery of presenting the news.
The news, she and fellow-clown,
Ricardo Lightbourne, seem to
suggest is some joking matter.
They were not hired as come-
dians.

Pakesia Edgecombe needs to
work on and to improve her
enunciation. She habitually fails
to pronounce the ends of many
words. This is distracting and

substandard. She has work to
do yet to get up to par — to
impress as a reporter.

What I find to be Ricardo’s
problem, though the words roll
from his tongue readily and
rapidly, his accent is unaccept-
ably American. This though is
true of many of our radio per-
sonalities and though it is irk-
some, it is not entirely unfor-
givable. What is unforgivable
though is this reporter’s prox-
imity to his listener.

His gestures, intonation, tone
put him in the space of the
viewer. He needs to back away
with all his antics. This viewer —
viewers generally — have not
agreed to any contract of friend-

ship. Why therefore is he behav- .

ing as if his viewers and he were
such close friends?

His presumption is unaccept-
able — unprofessional. This
viewer wishes him to withdraw
a few feet. In other words desist
from being uninvited — all up
in my face — all up in my senses.
I tune in for the news, not for
his clowning, antics or intimacy.
He breaks the skin between the

audience and himself. This is
vulgar and a violation. It’s impo-
lite.

In conclusion, whatever exists
between these two, they need
to keep it to themselves ~ out of
the news. It is not what we tune
in for. I live on New Providence.
I used to live on Grand
Bahama. I wish to keep con-
nected to what’s going on there.
This pair though, over and over,
inspire this viewer to switch the
TV off in annoyance, insulted
by their vulgar flirtation with
the viewer and each other. This,
instead of on camera, needs to
be kept off stage.

I am as sensitive as I am
about this pair because I have a
degree in Speech, in Theatre. I
find them an insult to my train-
ing. On top of my passion for
and training in the performing
Arts, [am a writer. The news is
one of the places to which I turn
to do research. The news is his-
tory happening. When I turn to
ZNS on a week day, between
6.30pm and 8pm, I do not
expect to encounter comedians.

I’d most certainly turn, ’'d most

Relief that the government we
need is now back in power

EDITOR, The Tribune

THERE was never any doubt
in my mind that the enlightened
Free National Movement would
have been re-elected to high
office by the good people of
The Bahamas. Almost from the
very day the ‘new’ PLP was
elected in 2002 signs of malad-
ministration; sleazy scandals and
‘bad’ public behaviour by some
of its members of parliament
quickly became hallmarks of
the Christie interregnum.
Bahamians no longer will tol-
erate slackness and foolishness
in our government and/or our
political leaders.

The outgoing PLP regime did
not connect to the average
Bahamian person during the
latter year or so of its first and
only term in office. Its minis-
ters acted as if they were doing
ordinary Bahamians some sort
of favours. When they were not
refusing to issue statements of
accountability to us, they were
busy doing their own thing, or

In brief

Crash victim
believes
FNM win will
aid justice

ROAD crash victim
Daniel Williams believes the
change in government will
help him get long-awaited
justice in his battle with the
man who wrecked his life.

Mr Williams, who was left
physically ruined by crash
injuries in the early 1990s, has
already been granted judg-
ment’against the driver held
responsible, Mario Bowe.

The Supreme Court
ordered that Mr Bowe pay
$317,834 to Mr Williams with
interest accruing at ten per
cent a year.

But Mr Williams claims he
has never received any mon-
ey from the defendant.

He claimed that Mr Bowe
had enjoyed political protec-
tion during the PLP era
because his father was a close
friend of the late Sir Lynden
Pindling.

“Now that the government
has changed, | want to see if I
can get justice at last,” said
Mr Williams, who was left
with severe disability, includ-
. ing limp legs and constricted
hands, following the collision
in Collins Avenue.

On March 1/4, after The
Tribune’s INSIGHT section
had highlighted Mr Williams’
plight, a penal notice was
served on Mr Bowe ordering
him to undergo an oral exam-
ination to see what property
he had to satisfy the original
judgment.

On March 21, a certificate
of assessment was issued, cer-
tifying the damages and inter-
est owed.

Mr Williams told The Tri-
bune that he had yet to
receive any money from the
defendant, who was alleged
to have run a red light in his
truck before hitting a car car-
rying five young people.

A girl died in the crash. Mr
Williams was left paralysed
below the neck and has not
been able to work since then.

The Tribune has not been
able to contact Mr Bowe.

Rise in Haitians heading to US

m By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter

THERE was a huge surge in
April in the number of migrants
leaving Haiti for the Bahamas
and US, possibly due to
rumours about a new US policy
towards Haitians, according to
US officials.

This comes as the Associated
Press reported yesterday that a
sailboat carrying 150 people had
capsized in shark-infested
waters off the Turks and Caicos
islands while being towed by a
police vessel.

Twenty people have been
reported dead so far in the inci-
dent - some having limbs
"chewed off" by sharks - while
another 58 are missing, accord-
ing to AP.

The US embassy in the
Bahamas issued a statement

yesterday which stated that 837
Haitian migrants have been
intercepted on their way from
Haiti towards the Bahamas, and
potentially the US, in only the
last 34 days.

Many of the interceptions
have occurred in the Southern
Bahamas and the Windward
Passage, according to the
embassy.

This is a massive increase in
only a month, with March see-
ing only 125 migrants inter-
cepted, according to AP.

It is also significantly more
than the previous high for the
fiscal year - which began in
October - of 511, according to
Florida's Sun Sentinel newspa-
per.

The embassy stated that the
increase is "due to rumours of a
wet foot/dry foot policy being
applied to Haitians."

The USA's "wet foot/dry foot
policy" is one which applies to
Cubans, meaning that if they
set foot on US soil, they can
remain, whereas if they are
intercepted at sea, they must
return to Cuba.

Migrants

"The US policy has not
changed and the US government
is repatriating Haitian migrants,
including those who reach the
shores of the United States," said
the embassy yesterday.

The surge in migrationary

activity has caused the US to

increase Coast Guard surface
vessel and aircraft presence in
the region.

The repatriation effort by the
US Coast Guard has saved the
Bahamian government an esti-

mated $158,013 in the last
month alone, based on repatri-
ation cost estimates from the
Bahamian government.

Last Tuesday, a US Coast
Guard ship intercepted a 50-
foot sailboat in the Windward
Passage, with 139 Haitian
nationals onboard.

"Although the vessel was ini-
tially spotted by a US Coast
Guard aircraft south of Acklins
Island the previous day, the re-
directed Coast Guard ship was
able to make the intercept
approximately one and a half
miles off the western end of
Long Island, preventing the
sloop from reaching shore." said
officials.

"Due to the dilapidated con-
dition of the sailing sloop, each
of the Haitian nationals was
safely transferred to the US
Coast Guard ship for further

disposition," they added.

A Defence Force vessel,
HMBS Bahamas, arrived on
scene shortly after the inter-
ception and took custody of the
empty sailing sloop while the
US Coast Guard ship departed
the area to repatriate the
migrants directly back to Haiti.

Again on Wednesday, a US
Coast Guard vessel intercept-
ed another Haitian boat with
56 Haitian nationals onboard
west of Great Inagua.

US embassy officials credit-
ed the partnership between US
Coast Guard, the Royal
Bahamas Defence Force and
Bahamas Immigration with
playing a "significant role in the
effective at sea response capa-
bilities to this dynamic threat
to national security for both the
United States and the
Bahamas."

FROM page one

According to the report, at
2.49pm the speedboat was suc-
cessfully intercepted, with the
result that of the four crew
members — presumed Bahami-
an — two were killed and one
wounded in the leg.

The Cuban newspaper said
the injured man has received
the necessary medical attention.

On board the violating ves-
sel, 30 packets and 13 plastic
tanks containing 590.33 kilo-
grams of marijuana were found.

A statement from the Cuban
government said: “The use of
force by our border guard units
was carried out in an excep-
tional manner in order to allow
those concerned to carry out
their duty and exercise legiti-
mate defense against aggressors

who place the lives of our com-
batants in danger.

“The Cuban government
regrets the loss of human lives as
a result of this serious criminal
act, while at the same time rati-
fies its permanent commitment
to combating drug-trafficking,

and confirms that it will continue
to use the resources established
by Cuban law and international
regulations to that effect.
“Cuba reaffirms that its terri-
torial waters will never be used
as a secure transit point for drug-
traffickers and condemns the
growing violence and use of
firearms by unscrupulous per-
sons involved in internationally
organised criminal operations.”

The report said the Cuban
government has informed the
Bahamas government of the
incident, expressing its total dis-
position to provide all the infor-
mation collated and sustain the
necessary exchanges.

The Tribune contacted the
police and the Ministry of For-
eign Affairs for a response, but
no calls were returned up to
press time.

Jacinta Higgs in Fox Hill

FROM page one

The Fox Hill race was one
which sparked significant public
curiosity. Mr Mitchell was wide-
ly considered to be a tough
opponent for any candidate in
the area. However, Dr Higgs is
a well-known figure in the com-
munity, and revered by many
for being a "Fox Hill gal."

Confusion and curiosity
reigned on election evening
when, after being referred to
repeatedly by announcers as
the victor in the constituency,
word spread belatedly that 41-
year-old Dr Higgs had ulti-
mately come out behind
Mitcheil.

Explaining the situation yes-
terday, Dr Higgs said that she
was leading in the polls until
the return of the final polling
division, number six.

Asked why that particularly
division took so long to be
returned, Dr Higgs said she had

been told that the presiding offi-
cer in that division had taken
"extra due care" in counting the
ballots.

Response

While she said she did not |

suspect foul play, she said ques-
tions remained in her mind
"because, beyond a shadow of a
doubt, I knew that the response
of the people was FNM and
they were in support of me,
especially in polling division
five, six and seven."

The FNM candidate revealed
that she and her party now have
an “investigative team" on the
streets.

"We are in the next few days
going to be in pursuit of all of

those anomalies, all of those

activites that we suspect and
that have been alleged by per-
sons," she explained.

However, Dr Higgs said that
she now has "heart-wrenching
decisions" to make about exact-
ly how to proceed.

"As I said, these are my peo-
ple in this constituency...many
of them would've come to us in
secret. Now, how far will the
hard evidence lead, how many
persons will I have to include
to bring to bear evidence about
what has been done - all of
these things I have to deliber-
ate," she said.

She claims that Mr Mitchell's
famous statement that if he
were to lose Fox Hill, the PLP
would lose the election, was
made."intentionally and-manip-
ulatively" to get the PLP to
focus their resources in his con-

stituency.
And she added that, despite
"being called everything but a

child of God" by Mr Mitchell, °

she was not shocked by his
behaviour.

"T recognised that he was
fighting for his life," she
explained.

Dr Higgs said her life so far
lives up to public scrutiny, and
with the people of Fox Hill
being aware of this, she believed
it was partly due to Mr Mitchel-
I's attacks on her character that
his previously huge margin in
the polls was eroded.

Mr Mitchell beat his previ-
ous FNM opponent, Juanianne
Dorsett, by around 1,200 votes
in 2002.

However, as to whether she
would run again in the con-

stituency, Hig ges said that- tt’
depends on the "will of the peo- _
ple", andis something she will ®
‘haveto éonsult with-Gotl-about:

before determining.

between the man and defence
force personnel, but he could not
say who initiated it, or why it
began.

The lawyer for the injured
man, and president of the
Bahamas Human Rights Net-
work, Elsworth Johnson, did not
want to pre-empt the official
investigation. But he expressed
grave concern regarding the
treatment of Haitian nationals
and Haitian-Bahamians by local
security forces.

the Bahamas,” he said.

He especially thanked Par-
liamentary Commissioner Errol
Bethel and his staff, who Mr
Ingraham said, worked very
hard under tremendous pres-
sure.

Mr Ingraham said that the
election process was not a flaw-
less one, but said he would
address this matter at a later
“more suitable venue.”

Archdeacon of the Southern
Bahamas Keith Cartwright
delivered the invocation, thank-
ing God for a violence-free gen-
eral election.

The crowd responded with

cries of “yes, yes” as he asked
God to keep all new members
of parliament “honest, trust-
worthy and straightforward in
their working for our beloved
Bahamaland.”

Governor-general Arthur
Hanna addressed the jubilant
crowd with a well-received ad-
lib speech, in which he
expressed his “sincere hope that
(the FNM) govern the Bahamas
in the way it should be gov-
erned.”

He extended his congratula-
tions “not only to the FNM, but
to members of the PLP who
were successful in that eléc-
tion.”

Mr Hanna said that all those
within parliament must remem-
ber that “the most important part

of parliament is the Opposition.”
He also admonished mem-
bers of parliament to ensure
that the legislative agenda is car-
ried out.
“Once those two principles

New programme
helps businesses
of young people

A NEW programme has
been launched to help young
Bahamians get started in their
own businesses with available
credit of up to $50,000.

Neville Adderley, chairman

of the Bahamas Development
Bank, said the government is
intent on erasing the failure rate
among young persons who start
. their own business.
' “BKighty per cent of small
businesses have failed or dis-
continued in the first four years
of operation,” Mr Adderley told
the press during the launch of
the Youth Entrepreneurial Pro-
gramme (YEP) at the bank’s
Cable Beach office.

YEP is intended to put in
place programmes and strate-

gies aimed at 18-to-30-year-olds
to help them overcome business
failure.

The programme is intended
to help young entrepreneurs
avoid common pitfalls in start-
ing and maintaining business-
es.

YEP is a “comprehensive
programme” designed to pro-
vide assistance to young entre-
preneurs at every stage of the

project cycle, from the initial -

planning to operations.
Participants in the pro-
gramme receive formal business
training, assistance with devel-
oping their business plans, fund-
ing for their businesses,.men-
torship during implementation
and initial operations, and net-

working opportunities to sup-
port growth.

Bahamian citizens between
18 to 30 who are recommended
for the programme by an edu-
cational institution or commu-
nity based service organisation
are eligible for YEP.

An applicant accepted into
the programme will first under-
go a series of business training
seminars based on their back-
ground and training.

At successful completion of
the training a business develop-
ment officer (BDO) is assigned

“to the participant and works

with him or her to develop busi-
ness plans.

On completion, the plan is
submitted to the Bank’s Credit

Department for review and
funding. Funding approved, the
participant will implement the
business plan under the guid-
ance of the assigned BDO.

A mentor will then be
assigned to offer advice and
guidance to the participant for a

limited time.

YEP runs for 12-24 months
depending on the progress of
the participant.

The bank’s goal is to ensure
the success of the programme’s
participants.

However, resources are lim-

_ ited and only a limited number

of persons will be selected each
year.

Mr Adderley said that
although the ceiling is presently
$50,000, that figure could be
increased if the circumstances
warranted an increase.

FREEPORT - Old Bahama
Bay at Ginn Sur Mer has
announced the completion of
24 new junior suites at West
End.

The new rooms bring the
total number of guest rooms at
the property to 73, which
include 67 junior suites and six
two-bedroom suites.

According to resort officials,
50 per cent of the rooms are
oceanfront suites, while others
have views of the ocean.

Old Bahama Bay also com-
prises a 70-plus slip marina,
oceanfront pool, restaurants,
and a massage pavilion.

It offers amenities, such as
fishing, diving, snorkeling and
boating activities.

In early January, Ginn
Resorts assumed operations of
the Old Bahama Bay Resort
and Yacht Harbour.

Ginn Resorts is developing

_ the $4.9 billion Ginn Sur Mer, a

2,000-acre resort community
adjacent to Old Bahama Bay
that will contain more than
4.400 condominium and hotel
units, nearly 2,000 single family

Bahama Bay

residential home sites, signature
golf courses designed by Jack
Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer,
clubhouses, two large marinas, a
private airport, a casino, water
and swim pavilions, a beach
club and a spa.

The development at West
End will serve as Ginn Resort’s
flagship Caribbean develop-
ment. |

The new room additions at
Old Bahama Bay, say resort
officials, “combine the resort’s
casual elegance with colonial
influences and feature king beds
with duvet covers”.

The rooms also incorporate

white flowing fabrics, flat
screen LCD televisions with
DVDs and plantation shut-
ters. Kitchens are outfitted

’ with stainless steel appliances

and granite kitchen counter
tops. ,

“Like the existing suites, the
new rooms are decorated in the
resort’s signature style of dark
woods, rich fabrics and custom-
designed island plantation-style
furnishings. Warm, textured
leathers garnish the interiors
while tropical pastels and
exquisite landscaping enliven»
the exteriors,” said a spokesman
at the resort.

Atlantis restaurant gets revamp

FRESH, flavourful and mod-
ern Chinese cuisine now tops
the menu of Atlantis’ new and
revitalised Mama Loo’s restau-
rant.

For years, Mama Loo’s pro-
vided guests and visitors of the

al dining experiences and now,
patrons have even more to

Leading this exciting chal-
lenge is the restaurant’s new

Notes to the Balance Sheet
31 December 2006

i, Corporation information

Bank of America Trust and Banking Corporation (Bahamas) Limited (the “Bank”) is incorporated under the laws of
the Commonwealth of The Bahamas. The Bank is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Bank of America International
Finance Corporation (““BIFC”) a company registered in North Carolina U.S.A, which is ultimately wholly-owned by
Bank of America Corporation.

On December 12, 2005, ownership in the Bank was transferred to BIFC from Bank of America Holding Compahy
S.A. (liquidated as part of a reorganisation process). Bank of America Corporation is a bank holding company
incorporated in Delaware (United States of America) whose executive offices are located in Charlotte, North
Carolina. ‘

The Bank has two wholly owned subsidiaries incorporated under the laws of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas,
Trunoms Limited and-Wolnoms Limited which serve as nominee companies of the Bank and are presently inactive.

The Bank’s registered office is located at Bank of Butterfield (Bahamas) Limited, P.O. Box N-3242, Nassau,
Bahamas. : -

As the majority of the transactions conducted by the Bank are conducted in United States dollars, the functional and
presentation currency of the financial statements is United States dollars rather than the local currency of the

Commonwealth of The Bahamas.
/

The Bank ceased operations effective November 29, 1999. It is management’s intention that the Bank be wound-up
and liquidated by December 31, 2007. There are no employees at December 31, 2006 (2005: Nil)

2. Summary of significant accounting policies

Basis of preparation

This balance sheet has been prepared under the historical cost convention and in accordance with International
Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”). The preparation of the balance sheet in conformity with IFRS requires
management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and
disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements. Actual results could differ from
those estimates. The following is a summasy of the material accounting nolicies:

rublished Standards
The application of amendments to published accounting standards and interpretations that became effective
Januaryl, 2006 did not result in substantial changes to the Bank’s accounting policies. With the exception of
amendments to IAS 1 Presentation of Financial Statements regarding capital disclosures, that become effective

January 1, 2007, the application of new standards and interpretations issued but not yet effective will not have a
material impact on the Bank’s financial statements in the period of initial application. ;

Cash and cash equivalents
Cash and cash equivalents consists of cash on demand.
Accounts payable and accrued liabilities

Liabilities classified as accounts payable and accrued liabilities are carried at cost which is the fair value of the
consideration tobe paid in the future for goods and services received.

Share capital
Ordinary share capital is recognized at par value.
Nominee subsidiaries

The statements of the subsidiary companies are not consolidated in these financial statements as the amounts
involved are wholly insignificant.

Income taxes

There are no income taxes imposed on the Bank in the Commonwealth of The Bahamas. Consequently, no tax
liability or expense has been recorded in the accompanying financial statements. The Bank intends to conduct its
operations so that it is not liable to taxation in other jurisdictions.

Assets under management

There were no assets or liabilities being administered by the Bank as custodian, trustee or nominee for the years
ended December 31, 2006 and 2005.

SATURDAY, MAY 5, 2007, PAGE 7

3. Loans

On December 12, 2005, the Bank’s Board of Directors approved and paid a loan of $10,000,000 to the Bank’s
shareholder BIFC. The loan was interest free and repayable on demand, and was repaid on October 16, 2006.

4. Maturities and concentrations of assets and liabilities



The following is.an analysis of significant assets and liabilities in order of maturity:

December 31, 2006:

Average
Upto 31 to 91 to Interest
30 days 90 days 180 days Total Rate
Assets
Cash and due from banks 11,241,040 - - 11,241,040 “4.80%
Loan to shareholder : - - : 0.00%
$11,241,040 $ 7 ta - $11,241,040 4.80%
December 31, 2005: °
Assets : :
Cash and due from banks 1,204,998 - - 1,204,998 3.25%
Loan to shareholder 10,000,000 - - 10,000,000 0.00%
$11,204,998 $ : 5 = $11,204,998 3.25%



The following is an analysis of significant concentrations of assets and liabilities:

Significantly all assets and liabilities are denominated in United States dollars and at December 31, 2006 and
December 31, 2005 all of the time deposits and all of the cash on demand were placed with Bank of America, N.A.,
London and North Carolina branches.

5.__Fair value of financial instruments and financial risk management

The Bank’s financial instruments are short term in nature and are comprised of deposits, cash and other liquid
Tesources. Accordingly, the estimated fair value is not significantly different from the carrying value for each major

category of the Bank’s assets and liabilities.

The main risk arising from the Bank’s financial instruments is credit risk. Credit risk is the risk that a customer or
counterparty will be unable or unwilling to meet a commitment that it has entered into with the Bank. The Bank’s
maximum exposure to credit risk in the event the counterparties fail to perform their obligations at December 31,
2006 and December 31, 2005 in relation to each class of recognized financial assets, is the carrying amount of those
asSets as indicated in the balance sheet. The Bank manages credit risk associated with deposit assets by makng
placements primarily within the Bank of America group.

Liquidity risk is the risk that the Bank will encounter difficulty in realizing assets and otherwise raising funds to
meet commitments. Interest rate risk is the risk that arises where there is an imbalance between rate and non rate-
sensitive assets and liabilities. The Bank has no exposure to either of these risks at December 31, 2006 and
December 31, 2005.

INDEPENDENT AUDITORS' REPORT. Facsimile (242) 302-5350

We have audited the accompanying balance sheet of Bank of America Trust and Banking Corporation (Bahamas)
Limited (the "Company") as of December 31, 2006 and a summary of significant accounting policies and other
explanatory notes. .

Management’s Responsibility for the Financial Statements :

Management is responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of this balance sheet in accordance with
International Financial Reporting Standards. This responsibility includes: designing, implementing and maintaining
internal control relevant to the preparation and fair presentation of financial statements that are free from material
misstatement, whether due to fraud or error; selecting and applying appropriate. accounting policies; and making
accounting estimates that are reasonable in the circumstances. :

Auditors’ Responsibility ;

Our responsibility is to express an opinion on this balance sheet based on our audit. We conducted our audit in
accordance with International Standards on Auditing. Those standards require that we comply with ethical
requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance whether the balance sheet is free from
material misstatement. .

An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial
statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditors’ judgment, including the assessment of the risks of
material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments,

’ the auditors consider internal control relevant to the entity’s preparation and fair presentation of the financial

statements in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of
expressing an‘opinion on the effectiveness of the entity’s internal control. An audit also includes evaluating the
appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of accounting estimates made by management,

as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements.

We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit
opinion. : ;

Opinion

In our opinion, the accompanying balance sheet presents fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of
Bank of America Trust and Banking Corporation (Bahamas) Limited as of December 31, 2006 in accordance with
International Financial Reporting Standards.

Emphasis of Matter

Without qualifying our opinion we draw attention to Note 1 to the balance sheet. As explained therein, proceedings
have commenced which will ultimately lead to the voluntary liquidation of the Company.

; We also emphasize that the accompanying balance sheet does not comprise a complete set of financial statements in

accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards. Information on results of operations, cash flows and
changes in equity is necessary to obtain a complete understanding of the financial position, performance and
changes in financial position of Bank of America Trust and Banking Corporation (Bahamas) Limited.

our audit in accordance with International Standards on Auditing. Those standards require that we
comply with ethical requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance
whether the balance sheet is free from material misstatement.

An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures
in the financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditors’ judgment, including the
assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or
error. In making those risk assessments, the auditors consider internal control relevant to the entity’s
preparation and fair presentation of the financial statements in order to design audit procedures that
are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on he
effectiveness of the entity’s internal control. An audit also includes evaluating the approprjateness of
accounting policies used and the reasonableness of accounting estimates made by management, as
well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements.

We believe that the audit evidence we have c

that th Stained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis
for our audit opinion. :

Opinion

In our opinion, the accompanying balance sheet presents fairly, in all material respects, the financial

position of the Bank as of 31 December 2006 in accordance with International Financial Reporting
Standards.

Emphasis of Matter ,

Without qualifying our opinion, we emphasise that the accompanying balance sheet does not
comprise a complete set of financial statements in accordance with International Financial Reporting
Standards. Information on results of operations, cash flows and changes in equity is necessary to

obtain a complete understanding of the financial position, performance and changes in financial
position of the Ba *:. - ,

Other Matters

The balance sheet of the Bank as of 31 December 2005 was audited by other auditors whose report,
dated 31 January 2006, expressed an unqualified opinion on that statement.

Notes to the Balance Sheet
31 December 2006

1. Incorporation and Activities

Pasche Bank & Trust Limited (the Bank) is incorporated under the Companies Act, 1992
of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas, and is licenced under the Banks and Trust
Companies Regulation Act, 2000 to carry on banking and trust business from within The
Bahamas. The principal activities of the Bank are providing banking, custody, trustee,
investment management and advisory services.

The registered office is situated at Bayside Executive Park, Blake Road, Nassau, Bahamas.

The Bank is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Pasche International Holding Ltd., a company
incorporated in the Commonwealth of The Bahamas, which is an indirect wholly-owned
subsidiary of Banque Pasche SA (the Parent), a company incorporated in Switzerland.
The ultimate holding entity is Credit Mutual Group, an entity domiciled in France

2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

The principal accounting policies applied in the preparation of this balance sheet are set
out below. These policies have been consistently applied to all the years presented, unless
otherwise stated.



THE TRIBUNE

(a) Basis of presentation

“The balance sheet has been prepared in accordance with International Financial
Reporting Standards (IFRS) and under the historical cost convention, as modified by
the revaluation of derivative financial instruments. The preparation of the balance
sheet in accordance with IFRS requires management to make estimates and
assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure
of contingent assets and liabilities as of the date of the balance sheet. Actual results
could differ from those estimates.

The application of amendments to published accounting standards and
interpretations that became effective 1 January 2006 did not result in substantial
changes to the Bank’s accounting policies. With the exception of the new disclosure
requirements of IFRS 7 Financial Instruments: Disclosures, and amendments to [AS
1 Presentation ,of Financial Statements regarding capital disclosures, that become
effective 1 January 2007, the application of new standards and interpretations issued -
but not yet effective will not have a material impact on the Bank's balance sheet in
the period of initial application. On adoption, IFRS 7 will supercede IAS 30 and the
disclosure requirements of IAS 32.

(b) Foreign currency transactions

The balance sheet is presented in Swiss francs, which is the Bank’s functional and
presentation currency. Foreign currency transactions are translated into the
functional currency using the exchange rates prevailing at the dates of transactions.
Foreign exchange gains and losses resulting from settlement of such transactions and
from the translation at year end rates of monetary assets and liabilities denominated
in foreign currencies are recognised in the income statement

(c) Loaus and advances

Loans and advances to customers are recognised initially at fair value and
subsequently measured at amortised cost, less provision for impairment. A provision
for impairment is established when there is objective evidence that the Bank will not
be able to collect all amounts according to the original terms of the loan or advance.
The provision is the difference between the carrying amount and present value of
estimated cash flows discounted at the original effective interest rate

The Bank’s policy is to extend credit to customers only when the Bank is holding
assets on behalf of the borrowers that can be used as collateral to fully support the
loan or advance. Accordingly, the Bank does not have any provision for impairment
of loans and advances to customers. lo ,

4

(d) Derivative financial instruments

Derivatives are initially recognised at fair value on the date on which a derivative
contract is entered into and subsequently remeasured at fair value. Fair values are
obtained from quoted market prices in active markets, including recent market
transactions, and valuation techniques, including discounted cash flow models and
option pricing models, as appropriate. All derivatives are carried as assets when fair
value is positive and as liabilities when fair value is negative.

(e) Fiduciary accounts and assets under administration
The Bank acts as trustee and in other fiduciary capacities that result in the holding or

placing of assets on behalf of individuals, trusts and other institutions. These assets
are excluded from the balance sheet as they do not belong to the Bank.

(f) Income and expense recognition

Fees and commissions are generally recognised on the accrual basis when the service _

has been provided. Commissions and fees arising from negotiating, or participating
in the negotiation of, a transaction for a clientssuch as the arrangement of the
acquisition or disposal of investments are recognised on completion of the
underlying transaction. Portfolio, management, advisory and custody fees are
recognised based on the applicable service contract, usually on a time apportionate
basis. The Bank’s billing cycle is such that management and administration fees
c, charged to clients are usually billed and collected in the same accounting period that
they are earned.

Interest income and expense for all interest bearing financial instruments are
recognised in the income statement using the effective interest method

All other income and expenses are recognised on the accrual basis.
(g) Employee benefits

The Bank has a defined contribution plan for all eligible employees, which is
managed and administered by a third party incorporated in the Commonwealth of
The Bahamas. Participating employees contribute 2.5% of their eligible earnings,
and the Bank contributes three times that amount as its share of total contributions.
The Bank’s contributions vest with a participant after two years of service, and it has
no further payment obligations once the contributions have been paid. The Bank’s
contributions are recognised in the income statement when they are due.

(h) Taxation
The Bank is domiciled in the Commonwealth of The Bahamas, and under the current
laws of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas, there are no income, capital gains or
other taxes imposed on the Bank.

(i) Corresponding figures

Where necessary, corresponding figures are adjusted to conform with changes in
presentation in the current year.

Management investment advisory agreements

The Bank entered into an agreement with Pasche Fund Management Ltd. (PFML), a
related company, to provide PFML with investment advice.

~The Bank has also entered into an agreement with the Parent for information technology

support, logistical support, communications, risk management and other general services

Financial Risk Management

The Bank engages in transactions that expose it to various types of risk in the normal
course of business. Such risks include fiduciary, credit, interest rate, liquidity and
currency risks. The Bank’s financial performance is dependent on its ability to understand
and effectively manage these risks, to achieve an appropriate balance between risk and
return.

(a) Fiduciary risk

The Bank provides significant custody, investment management, advisory, and other
fiduciary services. These activities give rise to fiduciary risk, which is the risk that
the Bank may fail in carrying out certain mandates in accordance with the wishes of
its customers, or to deliver expected performance goals. To manage this exposure,
the Bank generally takes a conservative approach in its undertakings for customers.

‘A groundbreaking study of
the beaked whale has been
launched by the Bahamas
Marine Mammal Research
Organisation.

‘Known as the Bahamas
Beaked Whale Ecology Study,
the three-year project was cre-
ated with the support of a grant
from the US Office of Naval

esearch.

i“This study will have great
implications for marine mam-
nial conservation in the
Bahamas and will help us to
apply our findings around Aba-
cd on a much broader scope,”
said Diane Claridge, leader of
the scientific team on the \Pro-
ject.

: “For example, we have given
our data to the Nature Conser-
vancy (TNC) to develop a mod-
el to predict important habitats
for cetaceans which has shown
that Rocky Point just off Sandy
Point is preferred habitat for
some resident species.”

iThe Bahamas Marine Mam-
mal Research Organisation
(BMMRO), formerly known as
Bahamas Marine Mammal Sur-
vey, is a Bahamian non-profit
organisation dedicated to
research and education with the
goal of contributing to the con-

servation of marine mammals.

“To date, BMMRO has doc-
umented 24 species of marine
mammals in the Bahamas,”
explained the organisation in a
statement. “While all species
are interesting and vital com-
ponents of the marine environ-
ment, perhaps the most alluring
is the family of whales called
beaked whales. There are cur-
rently 21 known species of
beaked whales in the world.
However, the natural behav-
iour of beaked whales makes
them difficult to study.”

The study will include three
months of dedicated survey
effort of the deep water
canyons and basiris of the
northern and central Bahamas
aboard the R/V Odyssey, a 95
foot sailboat owned by the
Ocean Alliance. The first 30-
day survey is scheduled to
begin on May 5, departing from
Freeport.

Most of BMMRO’s research
efforts thus far have been con-
centrated in Abaco, as the
organisation has been stationed
there since 1992.

The main research technique
employed by BMMRO is pho-
to-identification — a process

‘In the end, 17 student win-
ners were chosen, including five
Family Islanders. Sponsored by
Treasure Cay Hotel and Mari-
na, the contest was open to all

students throughout the
Bahamas — kindergarten
through grade 12.

‘Nearly 500 students from
‘schools throughout the coun-
try submitted applications for
this year’s competition, which is
now in its seventh year. Dol-
phin Encounters launched the
poster competition as part of

This year’s theme was: “Sea
lions: meet our pinniped pals.”
Students were encouraged to
learn about sea lions — which
are members of the order of

ed’ — and to express their
thoughts and concerns about

of all whales and dolphins that
the researchers encounter.

“Each animal has unique
characteristics that can be used
to tell them apart, much like
humans having unique sets of
fingerprints. To supplement the
data collected by photo-identi-
fication, samples of sloughed
skin and faeces are collected
for genetic analysis,” said the
statement.

According to BMMRO,
some species of beaked whales
are so elusive that they are
known only from stranded
specimens.

Three species of beaked
whale have been documented
in the Bahamas: Blainville’s
beaked whale, Cuvier’s beaked
whale and Gervais’ beaked
whale. South Abaco is one of
the leading study sites in the
world for these deep diving
whales, where they feed along
the steep canyon walls of the
Great Bahama Canyon just off
Sandy Point, where BMMRO
is located.

In addition to Claridge, the
team includes Charlotte Dunn,
Olivia Patterson and Edward
Adderley (all Bahamians), as
well as Leigh Hickmott and
Kiya Gornik, from the United

new underwater listening
device that Navy vessels will be
able to use to detect beaked
whales acoustically and avoid
conducting sonar tests in areas
where beaked whales are

“The main goals of the sur-
vey will be to learn how many
beaked whales there are in the
Great Bahama Canyon, where
they are found and how they
are related to beaked whales
outside the canyon,” explained
the statement. “To do this, the

nator at Dolphin Encounters.

“These kids are really cre-
ative, which made the judging
very difficult - more difficult
than I had anticipated,” Mr
Jervis said. “I made the rounds
at the tables and I was looking
for originality. I was particular-
ly impressed with the posters
that the younger kids drew. The
children in grades four to six
really brought out their creative
side.”

Impressed

Ms Rahming said she was
amased at the variety of con-
cepts that the students came
up with.

work with, and yet they man-

most beautiful posters I’ve
ever seen. | was seca
proud that Dolphin Encoun-
ters has chosen to have this

should be commended for its '

commitment to marine edu-
cation. It’s surprising that in a
Sounhey where most things
are connected to. our envi-
ronment, particularly the
marine environment, that
there are not more pro-
grammes committed to edu-

events such as this competi-
tion will positively influente
our students to be better
ste wards of our envirdn-
ment, * he said.

“Like dolphins, our sea
lions are ambassadors for all
marine life and show how all
of our actions can affect our
ocean pals,” added Tanya
Moss, education assistant ,at
DE — Project BEACH. “The
children of the Bahamas are
very serious about protecting
our environment and their
posters reflect their commit-
ment.

been invited to Dolphin

Island for an award ceremony
and a face-to-face meeting
with their new California.sea
lion family. ae

Last September, one male
and five female sea lions made
Dolphin Encounters their pet-
manent home after their
aquarium in Gulfport, er

ricane Katrina.

The playful group, which
includes the stars of the
movies Andre and Slappy &
The Stinkers have adapted to
their all natural habitat and
offer educational opportuni-
ties to both students and vis}-
tors to Dolphin Encounters.

The winning posters have
been laminated and will, be
posted throughout the com-
munity in recognition of the
student’s efforts to help pre-
serve the oceans and its crea-
tures. All winning posters can

that it was important to have
Bahamian photographers and
talent involved in this project.

“We wanted images that
reflect the way Bahamians see
Grand Bahama Island, so that
the resultant photographs will

Mackey.

Mr Morris added, “Both pho-

Each time Bahamian repre-

Artistic director of the group

they want to showcase indige-

“We hope that coming here

Named Caribbean’s
worst for physical
and sexual violence

'. i By PACO NUNEZ
Tribune News Editor

THE Bahamas has the high-
est number of reported rapes
in the world and surpasses all
other Caribbean countries in
physical and sexual violence,
according to a new study.

The product of a collabora-
tion between the United
Nations Office on Drugs
(UNODC) and the World
Bank, the study calculates its
findings per hundred thousand
(pht) of the population per
year.

In a region with the highest
rate of violent death in the
world, the findings show that
the Bahamas tops the list with
21.2 murders pht — more than
double the worldwide average.

The next highest rate of vio-
lent death in the region is St
Vincent and the Grenadines,
with 13 murders pht.

The Bahamas also has the
highest rate of physical assault
—more than seven times that of
the second highest, Jamaica.

Rape is a common problem
throughout the region, accord-
ing to the study, which says
that three of the top 10 rape
rates in the world are in the
Caribbean.

It said the Bahamas records
133 rapes pht — about nine
times. the world average.
Swaziland in Africa follows

with 121 pht.

The study said: “Rape is
greatly under-reported every-
where in the world, and rela-
tively high recorded rape rates
can actually be due to high lev-
els of trust that reporting will
result in positive outcomes for
the victim. But given the fact
that most of the rapes reported
did occur, high rape rates do
reflect a serious problem.”

It also noted that a regional
study carried out in 1997-1998
in nine Caribbean .countries,
including the Bahamas, found
that “48 per cent of adolescent
girls’ sexual initiation was
‘forced’ or ‘somewhat forced’
in these nine countries.”

The study said that, “in sum,
violence against women seems
to be endemic in Caribbean
countries — as it is in most
countries around the world.”

Jamaica

Jamaica tops the list of crim-
inal deportees expelled from
the US, with. the Bahamas hav-
ing the second most in the
region.

In this area, however, the
Bahamas seems to be improv-
ing, the number of deportees
dropping from 35 pht to 32 pht
between 2000 and 2004.

Researchers said the
strongest explanation for the

high rates of violence in the
region — “and their apparent
rise in recent years” — is drug
trafficking.

“The drug trade drives crime
in a number of ways: through
violence tied to trafficking, by
normalising illegal behaviour
by diverting criminal justice
resources from other activities,
by provoking property crime
related to addiction, by con-
tributing to the widespread
availability of firearms, and by
undermining and corrupting
societal institutions,” they said
in the report’s summary.

Researchers noted the effect
of crime on tourism, describing
it as “anathema for this indus-
try”.

They also said that evidence
suggests criminal activity may
be at least partially responsi-
ble for the exodus of talented
and qualified nationals which is
affecting many economies in
the region.

The report says that
researchers “culled many dif-
ferent sources of data” to pre-
sent a picture of crime and vio-
lence that is as comprehensive
as possible.

It noted, however, that there
were certain “data gaps” —
chief among them the lack of
regular victimisation surveys
that would allow comparisons
between crime rates across the
region and over time.

Tribune Staff Reporters

e

GIVING his first address to
the nation from Government
House, Prime Minister Hubert
Ingraham yesterday announced
three of his Cabinet Ministers.

Brent Symonette, candidate-
elect for St Anne’s, was sworn

in as Deputy Prime Minister . |

and Minister of Foreign
Affairs:

Tothmy Turnquest, candi-
date-elect for Mount Moriah,
was sworn in as Minister of
National Security.

Claire Hepburn, a partner in
the law firm Graham Thomp-
son, was announced as the new
Attorney General, but could
not be sworn in yesterday as
she was out of the country on a
family matter.

Prior to her career in law,
Mrs Hepburn was a lecturer
of history at the College of
the Bahamas, served as the
chairman of the Broadcasting
Corporation of the Bahamas
from 1992 to 1994 and as the
chairman of the Gaming
Board from 1994 to 2002. She
is a lecturer at the Eugene
Dupuch Law School in civil
procedure.

Prime Minister Ingraham
said that the other candidates-
elect will be sworn in on Mon-
day, and Cabinet posts and
portfolios will be announced
on Wednesday next week.

The atmosphere in the lower
gardens of Government House
was jubilant yesterday after-
noon as FNM supporters gath-
ered to hear the new prime
minister address the nation.

tive.spouses, were greeted with
applause by the crowd — with
Mr Turnquest and Mr Symon-
ette garnering the most enthu-
siastic responses outside of Mr
Ingraham.

They were followed by the

new prime minister, Mr Ingra-
ham, who had already been
sworn in during a private cere-
mony at Government House
at 8am yesterday.

Investigation begins

Higgs taking legal
advice on Fox Hill
after election loss

@ By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter

DR Jacinta Higgs, the FNM candidate for Fox Hill, is seeking
legal advice on how to proceed after it was officially announced
on Friday that she lost — by 63 votes — to Fox Hill incumbent, and
former foreign affairs minister, Fred Mitchell.

Whether this would lead to Mitchell's victory being contested
in the election court, Dr Higgs would not conjecture. However,
she declared she “will not stop” until she “gets Mr Mitchell out of
there” - whether it is she who takes his place, or someone else, as
she feels he is a negative force in the historic community.

Yesterday, Dr Higgs described the run-up to, and during the
election, as one of "most insidious kind of political experiences"
she had known, alleging that she and her team were aware of a
variety of activities that needed to be investigated.

These include allegations that PLP workers were "flooding
the area with bribery" in the days prior to the election, and that
one was able to collect a large number of voters’ cards from a Fox
Hill collection point, thereby forcing Fox Hill voters to come
directly to PLP operatives to pick up their cards.

Cuban Coast Guard

kill two on speedboat

registered in Bahamas

@ By ALEXANDRIO MORLEY
Tribune Staff Reporter

TWO people were killed and one wounded when the Cuban
Coast Guard was involved in a shoot-out with four persons on a
Bahamas-registered speedboat on Monday, according to inter-
national reports.

Yesterday, Cuba’s national newspaper reported that at 12.23 pm
on April 30, 2007, in the Boca de Jauco area of the Maisi munic-
ipality in Guantanamo, a speedboat with a Bahamas registration
plate GB 0744, three outboard motors and four crew members,
was spotted travelling through Cuban territorial waters from
south to north, heading for the Paso de los Vientos, at a speed of
about 20 knots and between five and six miles from the coastline.

The report said that during the operation to identify and inter-
cept the vessel — some five miles south of Punta Sigua — it attempt-
ed to evade the border guard traps, did not obey repeated calls
to stop and collided with the Cuban Border Guard Speedboat 45
and fired shots at the vessel.

The report stated that at this point the Cuban boat was forced
to retaliate.

ca ae

after Haitian shot by
Defence Force officer

@ By BRENT DEAN

A DEFENCE Force officer shot a Haitian man in the Cowpen
Road area yesterday, leading to an investigation of the incident by
both the police and defence forces.

When The Tribune arrived at the accident and emergency sec-
tion of Princess Margaret Hospital, a distraught relative of the
injured man had been waiting for hours to see him.

The relative expressed frustration at how Haitians are treated
by Bahamian authorities, saying the incident is indicative of the
heavy-handed tactics often used against people with little recourse.

The injured man, whose name has not yet been released, is
being treated at Princess Margaret Hospital, where he is also in
police custody, according to Chief Supt Hulan Hanna.

Mr Hanna said the man was shot after getting involved in a
struggle with defence force officers.

The officers, he said, were engaged in official duties when the
incident occurred. However, he did not specify what these duties
were, and the defence force has been quiet on the matter.

With both forces investigating, Mr Hanna told The Tribune that
the police investigation will be to determine if any criminal activ-
ity occurred, while the defence force will focus on determining

Bannister: people of Bahamas
knew it was time for a change

@ By ALEXANDRIO MORLEY
Tribune Staff Reporter

THE Bahamian people have
been "thirsty" for leadership for
the last five years, FNM mem-
ber of parliament elect
Desmond Bannister told The
Tribune yesterday.

Mr Bannister said that vot-
ers were fed up with the inef-
fective leadership of Prime Min-
ister Perry Christie.

And he also said the FNM
had expected victory at the polls
on Wednesday.

The official results of the May
2 general election show that the
Free National Mévement won

23 of the 41 seats in parliament.

In 2002, the Progressive Lib-

eral Party won by a landslide,

taking 29 seats in parliament.
But this time around, Prime

Minister Christie gets the dis-
tinction of being the country's
first single-term prime minister
since the Bahamas won its inde-

pendence from Britain in 1973.

Carmichael

Desmond Bannister won the
Carmichael constituency, with a
victory over PLP incumbent
John Carey and BDM candi-
date Tolonus Sands. ;

At an FNM rally in the Gold-
en Gates Shopping Centre in
February, Mr Bannister said:
“Carmichael is FNM country,
and Carmichael can’t wait to
send their do-nothing, unpro-
ductive MP home to early
retirement.”

“Mr Bannister told his sup-

porters: “You just can’t trust

Carey to keep his promises.
Carey promised that by 2003 he
would have introduced an after-
school programme in
Carmichael.”

Yesterday, Mr Bannister said

. the FNM was not surprised

that the Bahamian electorate
voted them in as the new gov-
ernment.

“It is absolutely clear that
the Bahamian people for the
last five years have been
thirsty for leadership and
Hubert Ingraham offered them
a leadership that they could
trust and that they know
exists," he said.

“The voters know that Mr
Ingraham is a kind of leader
who is not going to take any
nonsense and he will deal with

the affairs of this country inthe ~

manner that they expect. "

Hi DESMOND Bannister

“Askedavhat the new FNM
government will focus on in the

Independent:
FNM still the |

next five years , Mr Bannister

_ said that their manifesto has a

number of issues that are easily
measurable.

"And, at the end of five
years the FNM wants the
Bahamian people to be able to
judge them on what was actu-
ally accomplished compared to
what they had promised to
do,” he said.

The FNM's manifesto stated
that their key objectives were,
among other things, to restore
trust in government, to deepen
and strengthen democracy, to
improve the delivery of the pub-
lic service and to ensure sus-
tainable economic develop-
ment.

“And if we don't do them,
the people will kick us out and

‘put someone élse in,” Mr Ban-

nister said.

— best choice
for Bahamas

® By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport
Reporter

FREEPORT -— Despite his
decision to run as an indepen-
dent candidate, Grand Bahama
businessman Michael Edwards
said that he is still an FNM and
believes that the FNM is the
best political party for the coun-
try.

Mr Edwards was one of three
candidates who ran in Marco
City. FNM candidate Zhivargo
Laing was successful in captur-
ing the seat held by Freeport
attorney Pleasant Bridgewater.

Mr Laing won the seat by a very ,

small margin — less than 50
votes.

Mr Edwards congratulated
Mr Laing on his victory in Mar-
co City, and his re-entry into
front-line politics.

“The people have spoken in

-Marco City, and I accept their

decision as to whom they have
chosen to represent them in the
halls of parliament for five
years,” he said.

Mr Edwards said that his
defeat in Marco City has not
discouraged him. “I am disap-
pointed, but I want to thank the
people of Marco City for their
support. I will always remain at
the front-line of the issues and
be the voice of the less fortu-
nate and down trodden,” he
said.

Even while launching his
independent campaign, Mr
Edwards had insisted that he
was still a member of the FNM.

When asked his position, now
that the election is over, he said:
“My position has not changed. I
am still a member of the FNM.
It’s just that I decided to run as
an independent candidate ind
there are just some things tha.

you have to do on principle.

“T still believe that the FNM
is best political party for the
country. But, we strayed from
our original philosophy in 1997,
and it cost us the election.”

It is not yet known if FNM
supporters will be forgiving and
welcome Edwards back with
open arms, as the votes he

received in the election could ©

have extended the margin of
victory for Mr Laing.

On the other hand, Mr
Edwards’ participation may
have also prevented Ms Bridge-
water from retaining her seat.

At the outset of his campaign,
Mr Edwards had stated that his
intention to run as an indepen-
dent candidate was never to

take away votes from either,

candidate.

“Tam humbled by the oppor-
tunity to run an above board
campaign, and I want to thank
the people of Marco City who
supported me. One of the nicest
things was that so many resi-
dents were courteous, accom-
modating, and hospitable when
we visited their homes.”

Mr Edwards congratulated
FNM leader Hubert Ingraham
on his victory in the election.

“The election came down to
Mr Ingraham and Mr Christie.

Mr Ingraham’s leadership is dis- -

tinctly different from Mr
Christie. He has exhibited the
style of leadership that was
good for the country 15 years
ago.

“I thought he did an excel-
lent job as prime minister, but
not as leader of the party. But,
Mr Ingraham has said that he is
changed man, and that he is wis-
er now,” he said.

Mr Edwards said now that
the election is over, Bahamians
can unite as a people.



PLP to keep
looking at

election

results

THE PLP will continue to
review their legal position on
the outcome of the general
elections, according to out-
going prime minister Perry
Christie.

Mr Christie was addressing
a crowd of PLP supporters
who came out to the Sir Lyn-

den Pindling Centre on-Far-- -

rington Road on Thursday
night, in the hopes that there
was some truth to the
rumours that their party had
infact won.

“Our lawyers will contin-
ue to review our legal posi-
tion because there are con-
cerns that we have, and I
shan’t comment on those con-
cerns at this stage because the
concerns are based on infor-
mation provided me, which
must be established to my sat-
isfaction before I’m able to
speak publicly. I can tell you
I’m very sad,” Mr Christie
said.

He told the crowd that, “all
day our lawyers and candi-
dates have been locked into
rooms with election officials
going through re-counts. It
appears that we will not be
successful in this election. It is
very, very close.”

Mr Christie explained that
the Free National Movement
won some seats by 50 votes or
fewer.

“The question of gover-

nance and being able to gov- .

ern effectively will obviously
arise," Mr Christie continued.
“In the meantime, you have
heard me say on so many
occasions that I love you too
much for me to cause you to
be in any position where
there could be a public con-
frontation.”

He told supporters to avoid
any hostility when the offi-
cial results are announced.

“It’s very interesting for
seats to be won by 50 votes or
less," he added. "And so lis-
ten now; I want you to know
that it is important for all of
us to be strong. There are
many of our members and

supporters who are very sick -

and very worried over this
matter, but you have a leader
who has come too far to turn
back now.”

Mr. Christie asked PLP
supporters to return to their

homes as he planned to call.

them together shortly to dis-
cuss with them “the way for-
ward”.

“This will. give me an
opportunity to walk on the
streets, every street and every
corner throughout this island
and throughout the Com-
monwealth and remember,
we will not let up; we will not
let go and we will not turn
back,” Mr Christie said. “For-
ward ever, backward never.

"The rumours have been
grounded on the fact that
these elections have been
won on the basis that if 20
people or 25 people had vot-
ed for the PLP instead of the
FNM, the PLP would have
won the seat," Mr Christie
said, "as close as that."

"Leave here knowing that
you’ve seen me," Mr Christie
said, "knowing that I’m
strong and knowing that I’m
committed to ‘forward ever,
backward never’ and that ’m
committed to your cause and
to representing your cause
and to let you know that you
have put enough members in
the House of Assembly to be
able to look them straight in
the eye and to let them know
that this country could only
be governed if we are a part
of that [governance].”

He said PLPs are strong
and powerful in the Bahamas
and they have proven that.

"So now, knowing that
you're strong, knowing that
your leader is with you, let us
all agree to hug each other,
kiss each other and say good-
night to Gambier House for
the time being and then until
I see you again, which will be
very soon, when I call, I want
to see you be there," Mr
Christie said. “PLP! PLP!
PLP! All the way!"

O ln brief

Two face
charge of
marijuana
possession

A 30-YEAR-OLD man
and a 17-year-old girl were
arraigned in magistrate’s
court yesterday on a drug
charge.

It was alleged that Ker-
rington Knowles and the 17 -
year-old were found in pos-
session of a quantity of mari-
juana, which authorities
believed they intended to
supply to another.

The accused, who were
arraigned before magistrate
Carolita Bethel at Court eight
Bank Lane, pleaded not
guilty to the charges and were
granted bail in the sum of
$10,000.

According to the prosecu-
tion, the accused were found
in possession of one pound
of marijuana.

The matter was adjourned
to October 24.

Cuba says
army officer
killed in
hijack attempt

@ HAVANA

FUGITIVE soldiers killed
an army officer they took
hostage early Thursday in a
failed attempt to hijack a plane
bound for the United States,
the Interior Ministry said,
according to Associated Press.

The two escaped recruits
were arrested after Army Lt.
Col. Victor Ibo Acuna
Velazquez was killed aboard
the plane on an airport tar-
mac in the aborted hijacking,
a ministry statement said. .

The incident began before
dawn, when the fugitives
commandeered a regular city
bus and forced it to be dri-
ven into the airport and onto
the tarmac of Terminal 2,
which services charter flights
between the Cuban capital
and the United States.

While .
colonel was killed aboard the
plane, there were no crew
members or passengers
aboard the aircraft, the state-
ment said. The plane’s sched-
uled destination was
unknown, but most of the
charter flights out of Terminal
2 fly to Miami.

“Despite being unarmed,
(Acuna) heroically tried to
prevent the commission of
the terrorist act,” the state-
ment said. Passengers on the
commandeered bus were
unharmed, it added.

The ministry blamed US
policies that Havana says
encourage Cubans to emi-
grate to the United States and
Washington’s tolerance for
violence against the commu-
nist-run country.

School staff horr



sixth break-in this year

@ By NATARIO McKENZIE

TEACHERS and staff at
Ridgeland Primary School were
upset and dismayed yesterday
upon discovering that brazen
vandals had broken into the
school and rummaged several
offices late Thursday night.

Although the culprits were
reportedly unable to escape
with anything, school officials
say they feel as though the
school is being targeted, as the
break-in was the sixth this year.

On Friday morning teachers
and students returned to the
school only to find that several
administrative offices had been
ransacked and five computer
monitors, one flat screen moni-
tor, two computer towers, four
keyboards, two printers and two
televisions had been left in the
schoolyard. All the items were
reportedly brand new.

According to school officials,
security personnel at the school
were fortunately able to thwart
the theft.

When The Tribune arrived
at the school shortly after 10am
Friday, the items had not been
moved, though police had
already dusted the items for fin-
gerprints. The Tribune was
directed to three offices in the
school’s administrative block
which had been ransacked with
papers, books, and other items
left in disorder on the floor.

It was apparent that one door
had been prised opened while
another appeared to have been
opened after a sheet rock wall
was kicked in. Visibly dismayed
Ruth Smith, shop steward for
Ridgeland Primary School,

spoke to The Tribune yester-
day.

“It is very disturbing for
Ridgeland primary’s teachers,
students and staff to come here
this morning to find all of our
computers in the yard and
school disrupted,” she said.

According to Ms Smith, even
more disturbing was the fact
that two young boys were
apparently involved in the
break-in, which was reportedly
discovered around 11.45 pm
Thursday by a security officer
working the night shift, as well
as a janitress.

Security

As the security was report-
edly entering the yard two
young boys who were watching
the items fled. Upon seeing this,
the security guard checked the
school’s offices only to find
them in shambles.

“In January, the lock to the
entry of the tuck shop was
picked and they carried all the
juices and the corn dogs. On
another day in January they
entered through the window of
the tuck shop by removing the
hinges. They carried all the
juices and the corn dogs. On
February 18 entry was made
through the middle door of the
administrative block. All rooms
were broken into, including the
principal’s office and the prin-
cipal’s personal laptop comput-
er and other small devices such
as her radio, DVDs and VHS
were taken.

“On February 25 they
entered through the bathroom

window in the principal’s office
and they took the remaining
devices that were there. On
March 2 an entry was made by
cutting a hole in the middle of
the door of the administrative
block rooms where they tam-
pered with everything but noth-
ing was removed except for a
jar of pennies,” she said.

All of these incidents have
been reported to police and the
Ministry of Education, Ms
Smith said.

“T don’t know what to say. .

I’m just puzzled because I just
moved here two years ago and,
talking to the teachers, this has
never happened before,” Ms
Smith said.

“The teachers are just putting
the classrooms back together.
They were all torn apart when
we came back in August. We
have not even quite settled
down as yet,” she said.

Chief Supt Hulan Hanna said
police intend to continue to
liaise with schools and local
businesses to help alleviate van-
dalism.

“It is a concern for us that
there are adults who are using
young persons because of their
size and perhaps naiveté to
assist them in committing crim-
inal acts. We intend to work
with the schools and public
places where persons are
repeatedly taking advantage of
a situation,” he said.

“This is a school we will have
to work with to ensure that we
apprehend these persons and
that government property is not
criminally removed from school
premises,” Mr Hanna said.

Ingraham ‘must heal §
wounds of country’

Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham now has to get to work on
healing a “deeply wounded”
society, it was claimed last night.

He will have to restore basic
trust in the government and its

_institutions, said academic Felix

Bethel.

His comments came in
response to the FNM’s close
victory over the PLP, which fol-
lowed a tense day of recounts
on Thursday.

Mr Bethel said Mr Ingraham
had been given “a fairly slim
mandate” but his mission must
be to heal a deeply wounded
society.

“It needs a set of men who
are literally healers,” he said,
“T hope this is what Ingraham is
all about.”

He said social progress does-
n’t just happen, it has to be engi-
neered. He cited crime, educa-
tion and immigration as key

-areas of concern.

“The PLP’s dependence on
anchor projects missed the
boat,” said Mr Bethel. “If Ingra-
ham is as wise as I believe him
to be, he will move towards
cooling the temperatue on
anchor projects and focus on
the institutions.”

He said Justice John Lyons’
attack on the independence of
the judiciary had been the “tor-
pedo” that brought the PLP
down because it went “right to
the heart of governance.”

He said Mr Christie should
now resign as PLP leader to allow
the party to consider its future,
“which can’t be with Christie or
anyone chosen by him.”

“Mr Christie is exhausted. He

has fulfilled his lifelong ambi-

tion,” he added.

“We don’t need to be told
anymore about the $20 billion
investments - they mean noth-
ing to those who are hurting.
The PLP must get in touch with
the heartbeat of the Bahamian
people.”

Mr Ingraham, he said, should
move post haste to deal with
Haitian immigration.

“Lynden Pindling left the
most terrible piece of legisla-
tion on the books which deter-
mined that you can be born
here but not be a citizen,” he
said.

“It has created a monstrosity
that begs to be regularised. If
you have been in the Bahamas
for ten years or more, you
should be given permanent res-
idency and if you have children
in the Bahamas, they should be
citizens at birth.”

stood as an independent in
Golden Gates, said he was hap-
py to have focused on the issues
to help bring down the PLP.

“T feel like Samson when he
slew the Philistines. Even

though I went down, I took .

many with me,” he said.

He said the electorate had
given the “inept” PLP govern-
ment exactly what it deserved.
The PLP had secured “a bad
place in history” as the govern-
ment serving the shortest term.

Meanwhile, Mr Bethel
praised The Tribune for doing
“a superb job” in the run-up to
the election.

He said the newspaper had
been true to its motto - “Being
bound to swear to the dogmas
of no master” - and been fear-
less in its approach.

“The Tribune is an institution
in the Bahamas with high cred-
ibility. That is why its message
resonates,” he added.

Mugabe warns Catholic bishops

HARARE, Zimbabwe — President Robert
Mugabe told Roman Catholic bishops who
issued a letter blaming him for the country’s
political and economic turmoil they had cho-
sen “a dangerous path,” and church officials
said Friday a priest had been briefly detained
for passing the pastoral message on to his con-
gregation.

The arrested priest and a member of his
congregation were released without charge
after spending 24 hours in jail last month, said
Father Oskar Wermter of the Catholic social
communications secretariat in Harare.

Later on Friday, police arrested two promi-
nent lawyers who have specialized in human
rights issues.

The pastoral letter signed by all of the coun-
try’s nine bishops called on Mugabe to end

’ oppression in the country and allow for demo-
cratic reform. It also warned that violent con-
frontation and deepening economic hardships
were pushing the nation close to a flash point.

“The bishops have decided to turn political.
And once they turn political, we regard them
as no longer being spiritual,” Mugabe said of
the letter.

“Our relations with them would be con-
ducted as political entities, and this is quite a

, dangerous path they have chosen for them-
selves,” Mugabe was quoted as saying.

He cailed the pastoral letter “political non-
sense.”

Church officials said since the pastoral letter
was distributed across the country to coincide
with Easier services, state agents visited

Catholic churches and questioned worship-
pers over their understanding of the bishops’
message.

The priest arrested had evidently given
prominence to the letter in services in north-
ern Harare.

Wermter said Mugabe’s response was to be
expected.“What is surprising is that he kept
silent for so long. People have reacted to the
letter very positively and maybe that is riling
him,” Wermter said.

Western governments have imposed sanc-
tions on Zimbabwe to protest Mugabe’s
human rights record. Investment and foreign
loans have dried up in six years of political and
economic turmoil following the often-violent
seizures of thousands of white-owned farms
that began in 2000. Inflation, running at more
than 2,000 per cent annually, is the highest in
the world.

Opposition activists and civic leaders along
with independent journalists accused of giving
credence to calls for “regime change” in Zim-
babwe have frequently been arrested and
assaulted in efforts to silence them.

Attorney Sternford Moyo said police arrest-
ed lawyers Alec Muchadehama and Andrew
Makoni at their Harare offices late Friday
and held them at the main Harare police jail,
allegedly for attempting to pervert the course
of justice.

The two lawyers are currently representing
a group of jailed opposition activists wHo have
denied involvement in a series of petrol bomb-
ings since early March.

Former Iranian leader meets Pope

VATICAN CITY — Former Iranian Pres-
ident Mohammad Khatami met Friday with
Pope Benedict XVI for talks the Vatican
hoped would help heal tensions left from the
pontiff’s remarks on Islam and violence, but
the Iranian said the wounds were still very
deep.

Khatami, a reformist in power from 1997
to 2005, had been scheduled to meet with
Benedict in October but the meeting was can-
celled. No reason was given, but it was just
weeks after Benedict’s speech in Germany
about Islam touched off protests across the
Muslim world.

On Friday, the two men spoke about the
importance of “a serene dialogue between
cultures intended to overcome the grave ten-
sions that mark our times,” the Vatican said in
a statement after their 30-minute meeting.

But visiting a Catholic university in Rome
before the talks, Khatami said that “unfortu-
nately the wounds of this world are very deep
and they cannot be healed easily and a single

NOTICE

NOTICE is hereby given that HYACINTH FLETCHER of

meeting may not be enough,” the ANSA news
agency quoted him as responding to a question
about Benedict’s speech.

Relations between Muslims and Christians
were badly strained after Benedict quoted a
Byzantine emperor who characterized some of
the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad as
“evil and inhuman,” particularly “his com-
mand to spread by the sword the faith.”

Benedict expressed regret that Muslims
were offended. As a sign of improved rela-
tions, he made a successful visit to predomi-
nantly Muslim Turkey in November.

It was Khatami’s second meeting with a
pope, following an audience with Pope John
Paul II in 1999, two years after the Iranian
had taken office.

Earlier in Rome, addressing an academic
gathering at the Pontifical Gregorian Univer-
sity, Khatami said dialogue between Islam and
Christianity must concentrate on a “sincere
and practical commitment” to “eliminate ter-
rorism and the great military conflicts.”



A complaint
over quality

control at ZNS —

EDITOR, The Tribune

PAKESIA Edgecombe and
Ricardo Lightbourne, have they
ever heard of subtle? These two
people’s habitual conclusion of
the news from Grand Bahama,
filled with flirtation and
squawking, not only boarders
on but is outright vulgar and
should be disallowed — disal-
lowed that I’d not need to
switch my TV off when they are
most ridiculous or avoid them
altogether. What they attempt
to mix with the news I find dis-
tracting and distasteful.

Their antics suggest that the
job at hand were ever so simple
and so well accomplished. It’s
not. In my opinion they are
both less than professional -
what’s required of them, less
than perfected.

Of Pakesia Edgecombe I
must say, a pretty face does not
give her the right to make a
mockery of presenting the news.
The news, she and fellow-clown,
Ricardo Lightbourne, seem to
suggest is some joking matter.
They were not hired as come-
dians.

Pakesia Edgecombe needs to
work on and to improve her
enunciation. She habitually fails
to pronounce the ends of many
words. This is distracting and

substandard. She has work to
do yet to get up to par — to
impress as a reporter.

What I find to be Ricardo’s
problem, though the words roll
from his tongue readily and
rapidly, his accent is unaccept-
ably American. This though is
true of many of our radio per-
sonalities and though it is irk-
some, it is not entirely unfor-
givable. What is unforgivable
though is this reporter’s prox-
imity to his listener.

His gestures, intonation, tone
put him in the space of the
viewer. He needs to back away
with all his antics. This viewer —
viewers generally — have not
agreed to any contract of friend-

ship. Why therefore is he behav- .

ing as if his viewers and he were
such close friends?

His presumption is unaccept-
able — unprofessional. This
viewer wishes him to withdraw
a few feet. In other words desist
from being uninvited — all up
in my face — all up in my senses.
I tune in for the news, not for
his clowning, antics or intimacy.
He breaks the skin between the

audience and himself. This is
vulgar and a violation. It’s impo-
lite.

In conclusion, whatever exists
between these two, they need
to keep it to themselves ~ out of
the news. It is not what we tune
in for. I live on New Providence.
I used to live on Grand
Bahama. I wish to keep con-
nected to what’s going on there.
This pair though, over and over,
inspire this viewer to switch the
TV off in annoyance, insulted
by their vulgar flirtation with
the viewer and each other. This,
instead of on camera, needs to
be kept off stage.

I am as sensitive as I am
about this pair because I have a
degree in Speech, in Theatre. I
find them an insult to my train-
ing. On top of my passion for
and training in the performing
Arts, [am a writer. The news is
one of the places to which I turn
to do research. The news is his-
tory happening. When I turn to
ZNS on a week day, between
6.30pm and 8pm, I do not
expect to encounter comedians.

Relief that the government we
need is now back in power

EDITOR, The Tribune

THERE was never any doubt
in my mind that the enlightened
Free National Movement would
have been re-elected to high
office by the good people of
The Bahamas. Almost from the
very day the ‘new’ PLP was
elected in 2002 signs of malad-
ministration; sleazy scandals and
‘bad’ public behaviour by some
of its members of parliament
quickly became hallmarks of
the Christie interregnum.
Bahamians no longer will tol-
erate slackness and foolishness
in our government and/or our
political leaders.

The outgoing PLP regime did
not connect to the average
Bahamian person during the
latter year or so of its first and
only term in office. Its minis-
ters acted as if they were doing
ordinary Bahamians some sort
of favours. When they were not
refusing to issue statements of
accountability to us, they were
busy doing their own thing, or

In brief

Crash victim
believes
FNM win will
aid justice

ROAD crash victim
Daniel Williams believes the
change in government will
help him get long-awaited
justice in his battle with the
man who wrecked his life.

Mr Williams, who was left
physically ruined by crash
injuries in the early 1990s, has
already been granted judg-
ment’against the driver held
responsible, Mario Bowe.

The Supreme Court
ordered that Mr Bowe pay
$317,834 to Mr Williams with
interest accruing at ten per
cent a year.

But Mr Williams claims he
has never received any mon-
ey from the defendant.

He claimed that Mr Bowe
had enjoyed political protec-
tion during the PLP era
because his father was a close
friend of the late Sir Lynden
Pindling.

“Now that the government
has changed, | want to see if I
can get justice at last,” said
Mr Williams, who was left
with severe disability, includ-
. ing limp legs and constricted
hands, following the collision
in Collins Avenue.

On March 1/4, after The
Tribune’s INSIGHT section
had highlighted Mr Williams’
plight, a penal notice was
served on Mr Bowe ordering
him to undergo an oral exam-
ination to see what property
he had to satisfy the original
judgment.

On March 21, a certificate
of assessment was issued, cer-
tifying the damages and inter-
est owed.

Mr Williams told The Tri-
bune that he had yet to
receive any money from the
defendant, who was alleged
to have run a red light in his
truck before hitting a car car-
rying five young people.

A girl died in the crash. Mr
Williams was left paralysed
below the neck and has not
been able to work since then.

The Tribune has not been
able to contact Mr Bowe.

Rise in Haitians heading to US

m By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter

THERE was a huge surge in
April in the number of migrants
leaving Haiti for the Bahamas
and US, possibly due to
rumours about a new US policy
towards Haitians, according to
US officials.

This comes as the Associated
Press reported yesterday that a
sailboat carrying 150 people had
capsized in shark-infested
waters off the Turks and Caicos
islands while being towed by a
police vessel.

Twenty people have been
reported dead so far in the inci-
dent - some having limbs
"chewed off" by sharks - while
another 58 are missing, accord-
ing to AP.

The US embassy in the
Bahamas issued a statement

yesterday which stated that 837
Haitian migrants have been
intercepted on their way from
Haiti towards the Bahamas, and
potentially the US, in only the
last 34 days.

Many of the interceptions
have occurred in the Southern
Bahamas and the Windward
Passage, according to the
embassy.

This is a massive increase in
only a month, with March see-
ing only 125 migrants inter-
cepted, according to AP.

It is also significantly more
than the previous high for the
fiscal year - which began in
October - of 511, according to
Florida's Sun Sentinel newspa-
per.

The embassy stated that the
increase is "due to rumours of a
wet foot/dry foot policy being
applied to Haitians."

The USA's "wet foot/dry foot
policy" is one which applies to
Cubans, meaning that if they
set foot on US soil, they can
remain, whereas if they are
intercepted at sea, they must
return to Cuba.

Migrants

"The US policy has not
changed and the US government
is repatriating Haitian migrants,
including those who reach the
shores of the United States," said
the embassy yesterday.

The surge in migrationary

activity has caused the US to

increase Coast Guard surface
vessel and aircraft presence in
the region.

The repatriation effort by the
US Coast Guard has saved the
Bahamian government an esti-

mated $158,013 in the last
month alone, based on repatri-
ation cost estimates from the
Bahamian government.

Last Tuesday, a US Coast
Guard ship intercepted a 50-
foot sailboat in the Windward
Passage, with 139 Haitian
nationals onboard.

"Although the vessel was ini-
tially spotted by a US Coast
Guard aircraft south of Acklins
Island the previous day, the re-
directed Coast Guard ship was
able to make the intercept
approximately one and a half
miles off the western end of
Long Island, preventing the
sloop from reaching shore." said
officials.

"Due to the dilapidated con-
dition of the sailing sloop, each
of the Haitian nationals was
safely transferred to the US
Coast Guard ship for further

disposition," they added.

A Defence Force vessel,
HMBS Bahamas, arrived on
scene shortly after the inter-
ception and took custody of the
empty sailing sloop while the
US Coast Guard ship departed
the area to repatriate the
migrants directly back to Haiti.

Again on Wednesday, a US
Coast Guard vessel intercept-
ed another Haitian boat with
56 Haitian nationals onboard
west of Great Inagua.

US embassy officials credit-
ed the partnership between US
Coast Guard, the Royal
Bahamas Defence Force and
Bahamas Immigration with
playing a "significant role in the
effective at sea response capa-
bilities to this dynamic threat
to national security for both the
United States and the
Bahamas."

FROM page one

According to the report, at
2.49pm the speedboat was suc-
cessfully intercepted, with the
result that of the four crew
members — presumed Bahami-
an — two were killed and one
wounded in the leg.

The Cuban newspaper said
the injured man has received
the necessary medical attention.

On board the violating ves-
sel, 30 packets and 13 plastic
tanks containing 590.33 kilo-
grams of marijuana were found.

A statement from the Cuban
government said: “The use of
force by our border guard units
was carried out in an excep-
tional manner in order to allow
those concerned to carry out
their duty and exercise legiti-
mate defense against aggressors

who place the lives of our com-
batants in danger.

“The Cuban government
regrets the loss of human lives as
a result of this serious criminal
act, while at the same time rati-
fies its permanent commitment
to combating drug-trafficking,

and confirms that it will continue
to use the resources established
by Cuban law and international
regulations to that effect.
“Cuba reaffirms that its terri-
torial waters will never be used
as a secure transit point for drug-
traffickers and condemns the
growing violence and use of
firearms by unscrupulous per-
sons involved in internationally
organised criminal operations.”

The report said the Cuban
government has informed the
Bahamas government of the
incident, expressing its total dis-
position to provide all the infor-
mation collated and sustain the
necessary exchanges.

The Tribune contacted the
police and the Ministry of For-
eign Affairs for a response, but
no calls were returned up to
press time.

Jacinta Higgs in Fox Hill

FROM page one

The Fox Hill race was one
which sparked significant public
curiosity. Mr Mitchell was wide-
ly considered to be a tough
opponent for any candidate in
the area. However, Dr Higgs is
a well-known figure in the com-
munity, and revered by many
for being a "Fox Hill gal."

Confusion and curiosity
reigned on election evening
when, after being referred to
repeatedly by announcers as
the victor in the constituency,
word spread belatedly that 41-
year-old Dr Higgs had ulti-
mately come out behind
Mitcheil.

Explaining the situation yes-
terday, Dr Higgs said that she
was leading in the polls until
the return of the final polling
division, number six.

Asked why that particularly
division took so long to be
returned, Dr Higgs said she had

been told that the presiding offi-
cer in that division had taken
"extra due care" in counting the
ballots.

Response

While she said she did not |

suspect foul play, she said ques-
tions remained in her mind
"because, beyond a shadow of a
doubt, I knew that the response
of the people was FNM and
they were in support of me,
especially in polling division
five, six and seven."

The FNM candidate revealed
that she and her party now have
an “investigative team" on the
streets.

"We are in the next few days
going to be in pursuit of all of

those anomalies, all of those

activites that we suspect and
that have been alleged by per-
sons," she explained.

However, Dr Higgs said that
she now has "heart-wrenching
decisions" to make about exact-
ly how to proceed.

"As I said, these are my peo-
ple in this constituency...many
of them would've come to us in
secret. Now, how far will the
hard evidence lead, how many
persons will I have to include
to bring to bear evidence about
what has been done - all of
these things I have to deliber-
ate," she said.

She claims that Mr Mitchell's
famous statement that if he
were to lose Fox Hill, the PLP
would lose the election, was
made."intentionally and-manip-
ulatively" to get the PLP to
focus their resources in his con-

stituency.
And she added that, despite
"being called everything but a

child of God" by Mr Mitchell, °

she was not shocked by his
behaviour.

"T recognised that he was
fighting for his life," she
explained.

Dr Higgs said her life so far
lives up to public scrutiny, and
with the people of Fox Hill
being aware of this, she believed
it was partly due to Mr Mitchel-
I's attacks on her character that
his previously huge margin in
the polls was eroded.

Mr Mitchell beat his previ-
ous FNM opponent, Juanianne
Dorsett, by around 1,200 votes
in 2002.

However, as to whether she
would run again in the con-

stituency, Hig ges said that- tt’
depends on the "will of the peo- _
ple", andis something she will ®
‘haveto éonsult with-Gotl-about:

before determining.

Addressing the nation yes-

terday after 6.30pm, Mr Ingra-:

ham — in a notably short and
succinct speech said:

“My colleagues and I intend
to deepen and strengthen
democracy and put in place fur-
ther measures for its protec-
tion.”

He also took the opportunity
to thank his family, the FNM
candidates that ran in the elec-
tion; former Prime Minister
Perry Christie, as well as the
former Cabinet members; all
members of the former parlia-
ment, and the police and
Defence Force.

whether proper procedure was
followed by its officers during
the incident.

The only public statement the
defence force has made about
the matter is through a one para-
graph press release acknowledg-
ing that the incident did occur
involving a female officer, who
fired the shot, and that the man
was wounded in the thigh.

An eyewitness told The Tri-
bune that there was a struggle
between the man and defence
force personnel, but he could not
say who initiated it, or why it
began.

The lawyer for the injured
man, and president of the
Bahamas Human Rights Net-
work, Elsworth Johnson, did not
want to pre-empt the official
investigation. But he expressed
grave concern regarding the
treatment of Haitian nationals
and Haitian-Bahamians by local
security forces.

the Bahamas,” he said.

He especially thanked Par-
liamentary Commissioner Errol
Bethel and his staff, who Mr
Ingraham said, worked very
hard under tremendous pres-
sure.

Mr Ingraham said that the
election process was not a flaw-
less one, but said he would
address this matter at a later
“more suitable venue.”

Archdeacon of the Southern
Bahamas Keith Cartwright
delivered the invocation, thank-
ing God for a violence-free gen-
eral election.

The crowd responded with

cries of “yes, yes” as he asked
God to keep all new members
of parliament “honest, trust-
worthy and straightforward in
their working for our beloved
Bahamaland.”

Governor-general Arthur
Hanna addressed the jubilant
crowd with a well-received ad-
lib speech, in which he
expressed his “sincere hope that
(the FNM) govern the Bahamas
in the way it should be gov-
erned.”

He extended his congratula-
tions “not only to the FNM, but
to members of the PLP who
were successful in that eléc-
tion.”

Mr Hanna said that all those
within parliament must remem-
ber that “the most important part

of parliament is the Opposition.”
He also admonished mem-
bers of parliament to ensure
that the legislative agenda is car-
ried out.
“Once those two principles

New programme
helps businesses
of young people

A NEW programme has
been launched to help young
Bahamians get started in their
own businesses with available
credit of up to $50,000.

Neville Adderley, chairman

of the Bahamas Development
Bank, said the government is
intent on erasing the failure rate
among young persons who start
. their own business.
' “BKighty per cent of small
businesses have failed or dis-
continued in the first four years
of operation,” Mr Adderley told
the press during the launch of
the Youth Entrepreneurial Pro-
gramme (YEP) at the bank’s
Cable Beach office.

YEP is intended to put in
place programmes and strate-

gies aimed at 18-to-30-year-olds
to help them overcome business
failure.

The programme is intended
to help young entrepreneurs
avoid common pitfalls in start-
ing and maintaining business-
es.

YEP is a “comprehensive
programme” designed to pro-
vide assistance to young entre-
preneurs at every stage of the

project cycle, from the initial -

planning to operations.
Participants in the pro-
gramme receive formal business
training, assistance with devel-
oping their business plans, fund-
ing for their businesses,.men-
torship during implementation
and initial operations, and net-

working opportunities to sup-
port growth.

Bahamian citizens between
18 to 30 who are recommended
for the programme by an edu-
cational institution or commu-
nity based service organisation
are eligible for YEP.

An applicant accepted into
the programme will first under-
go a series of business training
seminars based on their back-
ground and training.

At successful completion of
the training a business develop-
ment officer (BDO) is assigned

“to the participant and works

with him or her to develop busi-
ness plans.

On completion, the plan is
submitted to the Bank’s Credit

Department for review and
funding. Funding approved, the
participant will implement the
business plan under the guid-
ance of the assigned BDO.

A mentor will then be
assigned to offer advice and
guidance to the participant for a

limited time.

YEP runs for 12-24 months
depending on the progress of
the participant.

The bank’s goal is to ensure
the success of the programme’s
participants.

However, resources are lim-

_ ited and only a limited number

of persons will be selected each
year.

Mr Adderley said that
although the ceiling is presently
$50,000, that figure could be
increased if the circumstances
warranted an increase.

FREEPORT - Old Bahama
Bay at Ginn Sur Mer has
announced the completion of
24 new junior suites at West
End.

The new rooms bring the
total number of guest rooms at
the property to 73, which
include 67 junior suites and six
two-bedroom suites.

According to resort officials,
50 per cent of the rooms are
oceanfront suites, while others
have views of the ocean.

Old Bahama Bay also com-
prises a 70-plus slip marina,
oceanfront pool, restaurants,
and a massage pavilion.

It offers amenities, such as
fishing, diving, snorkeling and
boating activities.

In early January, Ginn
Resorts assumed operations of
the Old Bahama Bay Resort
and Yacht Harbour.

Ginn Resorts is developing

_ the $4.9 billion Ginn Sur Mer, a

2,000-acre resort community
adjacent to Old Bahama Bay
that will contain more than
4.400 condominium and hotel
units, nearly 2,000 single family

Bahama Bay

residential home sites, signature
golf courses designed by Jack
Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer,
clubhouses, two large marinas, a
private airport, a casino, water
and swim pavilions, a beach
club and a spa.

The development at West
End will serve as Ginn Resort’s
flagship Caribbean develop-
ment. |

The new room additions at
Old Bahama Bay, say resort
officials, “combine the resort’s
casual elegance with colonial
influences and feature king beds
with duvet covers”.

The rooms also incorporate

white flowing fabrics, flat
screen LCD televisions with
DVDs and plantation shut-
ters. Kitchens are outfitted

’ with stainless steel appliances

and granite kitchen counter
tops. ,

“Like the existing suites, the
new rooms are decorated in the
resort’s signature style of dark
woods, rich fabrics and custom-
designed island plantation-style
furnishings. Warm, textured
leathers garnish the interiors
while tropical pastels and
exquisite landscaping enliven»
the exteriors,” said a spokesman
at the resort.

Notes to the Balance Sheet
31 December 2006

i, Corporation information

Bank of America Trust and Banking Corporation (Bahamas) Limited (the “Bank”) is incorporated under the laws of
the Commonwealth of The Bahamas. The Bank is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Bank of America International
Finance Corporation (““BIFC”) a company registered in North Carolina U.S.A, which is ultimately wholly-owned by
Bank of America Corporation.

On December 12, 2005, ownership in the Bank was transferred to BIFC from Bank of America Holding Compahy
S.A. (liquidated as part of a reorganisation process). Bank of America Corporation is a bank holding company
incorporated in Delaware (United States of America) whose executive offices are located in Charlotte, North
Carolina. ‘

The Bank has two wholly owned subsidiaries incorporated under the laws of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas,
Trunoms Limited and-Wolnoms Limited which serve as nominee companies of the Bank and are presently inactive.

The Bank’s registered office is located at Bank of Butterfield (Bahamas) Limited, P.O. Box N-3242, Nassau,
Bahamas. : -

As the majority of the transactions conducted by the Bank are conducted in United States dollars, the functional and
presentation currency of the financial statements is United States dollars rather than the local currency of the

Commonwealth of The Bahamas.
/

The Bank ceased operations effective November 29, 1999. It is management’s intention that the Bank be wound-up
and liquidated by December 31, 2007. There are no employees at December 31, 2006 (2005: Nil)

2. Summary of significant accounting policies

Basis of preparation

This balance sheet has been prepared under the historical cost convention and in accordance with International
Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”). The preparation of the balance sheet in conformity with IFRS requires
management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and
disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements. Actual results could differ from
those estimates. The following is a summasy of the material accounting nolicies:

rublished Standards
The application of amendments to published accounting standards and interpretations that became effective
Januaryl, 2006 did not result in substantial changes to the Bank’s accounting policies. With the exception of
amendments to IAS 1 Presentation of Financial Statements regarding capital disclosures, that become effective

January 1, 2007, the application of new standards and interpretations issued but not yet effective will not have a
material impact on the Bank’s financial statements in the period of initial application. ;

Cash and cash equivalents
Cash and cash equivalents consists of cash on demand.
Accounts payable and accrued liabilities

Liabilities classified as accounts payable and accrued liabilities are carried at cost which is the fair value of the
consideration tobe paid in the future for goods and services received.

Share capital
Ordinary share capital is recognized at par value.
Nominee subsidiaries

The statements of the subsidiary companies are not consolidated in these financial statements as the amounts
involved are wholly insignificant.

Income taxes

There are no income taxes imposed on the Bank in the Commonwealth of The Bahamas. Consequently, no tax
liability or expense has been recorded in the accompanying financial statements. The Bank intends to conduct its
operations so that it is not liable to taxation in other jurisdictions.

Assets under management

There were no assets or liabilities being administered by the Bank as custodian, trustee or nominee for the years
ended December 31, 2006 and 2005.

SATURDAY, MAY 5, 2007, PAGE 7

3. Loans

On December 12, 2005, the Bank’s Board of Directors approved and paid a loan of $10,000,000 to the Bank’s
shareholder BIFC. The loan was interest free and repayable on demand, and was repaid on October 16, 2006.

4. Maturities and concentrations of assets and liabilities



The following is.an analysis of significant assets and liabilities in order of maturity:

December 31, 2006:

Average
Upto 31 to 91 to Interest
30 days 90 days 180 days Total Rate
Assets
Cash and due from banks 11,241,040 - - 11,241,040 “4.80%
Loan to shareholder : - - : 0.00%
$11,241,040 $ 7 ta - $11,241,040 4.80%
December 31, 2005: °
Assets : :
Cash and due from banks 1,204,998 - - 1,204,998 3.25%
Loan to shareholder 10,000,000 - - 10,000,000 0.00%
$11,204,998 $ : 5 = $11,204,998 3.25%



The following is an analysis of significant concentrations of assets and liabilities:

Significantly all assets and liabilities are denominated in United States dollars and at December 31, 2006 and
December 31, 2005 all of the time deposits and all of the cash on demand were placed with Bank of America, N.A.,
London and North Carolina branches.

5.__Fair value of financial instruments and financial risk management

The Bank’s financial instruments are short term in nature and are comprised of deposits, cash and other liquid
Tesources. Accordingly, the estimated fair value is not significantly different from the carrying value for each major

category of the Bank’s assets and liabilities.

The main risk arising from the Bank’s financial instruments is credit risk. Credit risk is the risk that a customer or
counterparty will be unable or unwilling to meet a commitment that it has entered into with the Bank. The Bank’s
maximum exposure to credit risk in the event the counterparties fail to perform their obligations at December 31,
2006 and December 31, 2005 in relation to each class of recognized financial assets, is the carrying amount of those
asSets as indicated in the balance sheet. The Bank manages credit risk associated with deposit assets by makng
placements primarily within the Bank of America group.

Liquidity risk is the risk that the Bank will encounter difficulty in realizing assets and otherwise raising funds to
meet commitments. Interest rate risk is the risk that arises where there is an imbalance between rate and non rate-
sensitive assets and liabilities. The Bank has no exposure to either of these risks at December 31, 2006 and
December 31, 2005.

Notes to the Balance Sheet
31 December 2006

1. Incorporation and Activities

Pasche Bank & Trust Limited (the Bank) is incorporated under the Companies Act, 1992
of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas, and is licenced under the Banks and Trust
Companies Regulation Act, 2000 to carry on banking and trust business from within The
Bahamas. The principal activities of the Bank are providing banking, custody, trustee,
investment management and advisory services.

The registered office is situated at Bayside Executive Park, Blake Road, Nassau, Bahamas.

The Bank is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Pasche International Holding Ltd., a company
incorporated in the Commonwealth of The Bahamas, which is an indirect wholly-owned
subsidiary of Banque Pasche SA (the Parent), a company incorporated in Switzerland.
The ultimate holding entity is Credit Mutual Group, an entity domiciled in France

2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

The principal accounting policies applied in the preparation of this balance sheet are set
out below. These policies have been consistently applied to all the years presented, unless
otherwise stated.



THE TRIBUNE

(a) Basis of presentation

“The balance sheet has been prepared in accordance with International Financial
Reporting Standards (IFRS) and under the historical cost convention, as modified by
the revaluation of derivative financial instruments. The preparation of the balance
sheet in accordance with IFRS requires management to make estimates and
assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure
of contingent assets and liabilities as of the date of the balance sheet. Actual results
could differ from those estimates.

The application of amendments to published accounting standards and
interpretations that became effective 1 January 2006 did not result in substantial
changes to the Bank’s accounting policies. With the exception of the new disclosure
requirements of IFRS 7 Financial Instruments: Disclosures, and amendments to [AS
1 Presentation ,of Financial Statements regarding capital disclosures, that become
effective 1 January 2007, the application of new standards and interpretations issued -
but not yet effective will not have a material impact on the Bank's balance sheet in
the period of initial application. On adoption, IFRS 7 will supercede IAS 30 and the
disclosure requirements of IAS 32.

(b) Foreign currency transactions

The balance sheet is presented in Swiss francs, which is the Bank’s functional and
presentation currency. Foreign currency transactions are translated into the
functional currency using the exchange rates prevailing at the dates of transactions.
Foreign exchange gains and losses resulting from settlement of such transactions and
from the translation at year end rates of monetary assets and liabilities denominated
in foreign currencies are recognised in the income statement

(c) Loaus and advances

Loans and advances to customers are recognised initially at fair value and
subsequently measured at amortised cost, less provision for impairment. A provision
for impairment is established when there is objective evidence that the Bank will not
be able to collect all amounts according to the original terms of the loan or advance.
The provision is the difference between the carrying amount and present value of
estimated cash flows discounted at the original effective interest rate

The Bank’s policy is to extend credit to customers only when the Bank is holding
assets on behalf of the borrowers that can be used as collateral to fully support the
loan or advance. Accordingly, the Bank does not have any provision for impairment
of loans and advances to customers. lo ,

4

(d) Derivative financial instruments

Derivatives are initially recognised at fair value on the date on which a derivative
contract is entered into and subsequently remeasured at fair value. Fair values are
obtained from quoted market prices in active markets, including recent market
transactions, and valuation techniques, including discounted cash flow models and
option pricing models, as appropriate. All derivatives are carried as assets when fair
value is positive and as liabilities when fair value is negative.

(e) Fiduciary accounts and assets under administration
The Bank acts as trustee and in other fiduciary capacities that result in the holding or

placing of assets on behalf of individuals, trusts and other institutions. These assets
are excluded from the balance sheet as they do not belong to the Bank.

(f) Income and expense recognition

Fees and commissions are generally recognised on the accrual basis when the service _

has been provided. Commissions and fees arising from negotiating, or participating
in the negotiation of, a transaction for a clientssuch as the arrangement of the
acquisition or disposal of investments are recognised on completion of the
underlying transaction. Portfolio, management, advisory and custody fees are
recognised based on the applicable service contract, usually on a time apportionate
basis. The Bank’s billing cycle is such that management and administration fees
c, charged to clients are usually billed and collected in the same accounting period that
they are earned.

Interest income and expense for all interest bearing financial instruments are
recognised in the income statement using the effective interest method

All other income and expenses are recognised on the accrual basis.
(g) Employee benefits

The Bank has a defined contribution plan for all eligible employees, which is
managed and administered by a third party incorporated in the Commonwealth of
The Bahamas. Participating employees contribute 2.5% of their eligible earnings,
and the Bank contributes three times that amount as its share of total contributions.
The Bank’s contributions vest with a participant after two years of service, and it has
no further payment obligations once the contributions have been paid. The Bank’s
contributions are recognised in the income statement when they are due.

(h) Taxation
The Bank is domiciled in the Commonwealth of The Bahamas, and under the current
laws of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas, there are no income, capital gains or
other taxes imposed on the Bank.

(i) Corresponding figures

Where necessary, corresponding figures are adjusted to conform with changes in
presentation in the current year.

Related Party Balances

Balances with the Parent, other companies under common control, and other related
parties not otherwise disclosed in this halance sheet, are as follows:

Management investment advisory agreements

The Bank entered into an agreement with Pasche Fund Management Ltd. (PFML), a
related company, to provide PFML with investment advice.

~The Bank has also entered into an agreement with the Parent for information technology

support, logistical support, communications, risk management and other general services

Financial Risk Management

The Bank engages in transactions that expose it to various types of risk in the normal
course of business. Such risks include fiduciary, credit, interest rate, liquidity and
currency risks. The Bank’s financial performance is dependent on its ability to understand
and effectively manage these risks, to achieve an appropriate balance between risk and
return.

(a) Fiduciary risk

The Bank provides significant custody, investment management, advisory, and other
fiduciary services. These activities give rise to fiduciary risk, which is the risk that
the Bank may fail in carrying out certain mandates in accordance with the wishes of
its customers, or to deliver expected performance goals. To manage this exposure,
the Bank generally takes a conservative approach in its undertakings for customers.

‘A groundbreaking study of
the beaked whale has been
launched by the Bahamas
Marine Mammal Research
Organisation.

‘Known as the Bahamas
Beaked Whale Ecology Study,
the three-year project was cre-
ated with the support of a grant
from the US Office of Naval

esearch.

i“This study will have great
implications for marine mam-
nial conservation in the
Bahamas and will help us to
apply our findings around Aba-
cd on a much broader scope,”
said Diane Claridge, leader of
the scientific team on the \Pro-
ject.

: “For example, we have given
our data to the Nature Conser-
vancy (TNC) to develop a mod-
el to predict important habitats
for cetaceans which has shown
that Rocky Point just off Sandy
Point is preferred habitat for
some resident species.”

iThe Bahamas Marine Mam-
mal Research Organisation
(BMMRO), formerly known as
Bahamas Marine Mammal Sur-
vey, is a Bahamian non-profit
organisation dedicated to
research and education with the
goal of contributing to the con-

‘BLUE Lagoon Island - Not

cult. A panel of judges spent
hours sifting through hundreds
of submissions to find the per-

cation Poster Contest.

servation of marine mammals.

“To date, BMMRO has doc-
umented 24 species of marine
mammals in the Bahamas,”
explained the organisation in a
statement. “While all species
are interesting and vital com-
ponents of the marine environ-
ment, perhaps the most alluring
is the family of whales called
beaked whales. There are cur-
rently 21 known species of
beaked whales in the world.
However, the natural behav-
iour of beaked whales makes
them difficult to study.”

The study will include three
months of dedicated survey
effort of the deep water
canyons and basiris of the
northern and central Bahamas
aboard the R/V Odyssey, a 95
foot sailboat owned by the
Ocean Alliance. The first 30-
day survey is scheduled to
begin on May 5, departing from
Freeport.

Most of BMMRO’s research
efforts thus far have been con-
centrated in Abaco, as the
organisation has been stationed
there since 1992.

The main research technique
employed by BMMRO is pho-
to-identification — a process
where photographs are taken

‘In the end, 17 student win-
ners were chosen, including five
Family Islanders. Sponsored by
Treasure Cay Hotel and Mari-
na, the contest was open to all

students throughout the
Bahamas — kindergarten
through grade 12.

‘Nearly 500 students from
‘schools throughout the coun-
try submitted applications for
this year’s competition, which is
now in its seventh year. Dol-
phin Encounters launched the
poster competition as part of
its. marine education pro-
gramme.
This year’s theme was: “Sea
lions: meet our pinniped pals.”
Students were encouraged to
learn about sea lions — which
are members of the order of
Pinnipedia, meaning ‘“‘fin-foot-
ed’ — and to express their
thoughts and concerns about
protecting the ocean through
poster art. :
During the judging ceremo-
ny at the Bahamas National
Trust, judges had to stick to

of all whales and dolphins that
the researchers encounter.

“Each animal has unique
characteristics that can be used
to tell them apart, much like
humans having unique sets of
fingerprints. To supplement the
data collected by photo-identi-
fication, samples of sloughed
skin and faeces are collected
for genetic analysis,” said the
statement.

According to BMMRO,
some species of beaked whales
are so elusive that they are
known only from stranded
specimens.

Three species of beaked
whale have been documented
in the Bahamas: Blainville’s
beaked whale, Cuvier’s beaked
whale and Gervais’ beaked
whale. South Abaco is one of
the leading study sites in the
world for these deep diving
whales, where they feed along
the steep canyon walls of the
Great Bahama Canyon just off
Sandy Point, where BMMRO
is located.

In addition to Claridge, the
team includes Charlotte Dunn,
Olivia Patterson and Edward
Adderley (all Bahamians), as
well as Leigh Hickmott and
Kiya Gornik, from the United

Kingdom and United States,
respectively.

Dr Jonathan Gordon of the
Sea Mammal Research Unit
(SMRU) based at the Univer-

will also join the cruise to test a
new underwater listening
device that Navy vessels will be
able to use to detect beaked
whales acoustically and avoid
conducting sonar tests in areas
where beaked whales are
found.

“The main goals of the sur-
vey will be to learn how many
beaked whales there are in the
Great Bahama Canyon, where
they are found and how they
are related to beaked whales
outside the canyon,” explained
the statement. “To do this, the
Odyssey will run zig-zag tran-

very difficult - more difficult
than I had anticipated,” Mr
Jervis said. “I made the rounds
at the tables and I was looking
for originality. I was particular-
ly impressed with the posters
that the younger kids drew. The

really brought out their creative
side.”

Here North became declarer, plac-

Rejecting the normal-looking heart

lead, Roth decided to lead dummy’s
first-bid suit, spades. Not only that,
but he led the queen instead of the
deuce!

This preved exceptionally effec-

had the jack of spades to back up the
queen, so he ducked in dummy.

Roth then continued with. the

from declarer’s viewpoint) to the
jack. When West, Bill Root, shifted
to a low heart, declarer confidently
followed low, thinking that East had

started with a doubleton spade and ©
therefore would not have another

spade to lead.

But Roth won the heart return
with the ten and produced still
another spade — the deuce — a card
he supposedly couldn’t have. Root
thereupon cashed. three more spade.

director of the Grand Bahama
Island Tourism Board. “To
update our image bank and
assist us in co-ordinating this

officer in the cultural affairs

Ann Higgins.

“The songs that we bring are
very exciting and energetic

that distinguish us from the oth-

she said.

Dr Higgins said that the

to showcase Bahamian singing

that it was important to have
Bahamian photographers and
talent involved in this project.

“We wanted images that
reflect the way Bahamians see
Grand Bahama Island, so that
the resultant photographs will
be an invitation and enticement
to whoever saw them,” said Ms
Mackey.

Mr Morris added, “Both pho-
tographers on this project and

Bahamian residents — a first.
We want to continue this trend
of engaging and challenging our
local professionals to produce
the world-class products and
services required to promote
tourism for the Bahamas.”

Each time Bahamian repre-

they are asked to bring a dif-

ture, such as a junkanoo.

Artistic director of the group
Pastor Henry Higgins said that
they want to showcase indige-
nous music and dances of the
Bahamas, especially those from
the “old times.”

“We hope that coming here
we would be able to showcase
some of our culture here and
that would help to draw some of
the people here to visit the
Bahamas,” he said.
