significant crimes’

@ By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter

SENIOR police officers
assured the public yesterday
that they are committed to pro-
viding information about all sig-
nificant crimes.

Speaking with The Tribune
after the publication of an arti-
cle — in which a source claimed
police were trying to keep infor-
mation about a serious incident
"from getting out" — Chief Supt
Glenn Miller and police press
liaison officer Walter Evans
strongly denied that this was the
case. '

"Why would we not want
people to know about that inci-
dent?" Mr Miller asked.

Asst Supt Evans said that, on
the contrary, the police are
transparent in their actions,
have an “open door policy"
with the press, and believe they
have a responsibility to bring
matters to public attention.

about the incident which took
place last week Thursday, ASP

Men held
after cocaine
discovery

denied bail

TWO French-Canadian men
charged in connection with the
seizure of an estimated $3 mil-
lion worth of cocaine were
denied bail yesterday.

The drugs — 226 pounds of
cocaine — were reportedly dis-
covered on board a 42-foot sail-
boat off the coast of Eleuthera
by Drug Enforcement Unit offi-
cers more than a week ago.

Jean Pierre Gagnon, 61, and
Jean Claude Guindon, 57, both
of Quebec, Canada have been
charged with conspiracy to pos-
sess, conspiracy to import with
the intent to supply as well as
possession with the intent to
supply, in relation to the seizure.

It is alleged that the men con-
spired to import and possess the
cocaine sometime between Jan-
uary 2002 and June 2007.

It was further alleged that the
two men, being concerned
together and with others,
between Thursday, June 28, and
Friday, June 29, imported
cocaine with intent to supply
and were found in possession
of a quantity of cocaine.

Both men have pleaded not
guilty to all charges.

The men appeared before
Magistrate Carolita Bethel at
court eight in Bank Lane yes-
terday for a bail hearing and
were denied bail. Prosecutors
claimed that the were flight
risks.

The matter has now been
adjourned to December 12.

Reward is
offered after
dalmatian
goes missing

FREEPORT -_ Grand
Bahama’s famous Dalmatian,
Dottie, who was featured as the
. main character of two books, is
“lost. ,

A reward is being offered for
her safe return.

The public is being asked to
help in locating Dottie.

She was last seen in the vicin-
ity of City Markets (Winn Dix-
ie, Lucaya) on Seahorse Road
on Thursday, July 5.

Local Author Carol Hughes
is the dog’s owner. She had writ-
ten two books, ‘Who Let the
Dog Out?’ and ‘Feeling Hot,
Hot, Hot’.

Anyone who has seen Dottie
or has information about her is
asked to call 373-6977, 727-0551,
or 646-4874.

Vote held to
determine
airport union
leadership

A DISPUTE between the
leadership and two executives
of the Airport Airline and
Allied Workers Union has led
to a special vote to determine
who will lead the union.

Reports indicate that Nere-
lene Harding, the president of
the union, secretary general
Anthony Bain and treasurer
Susan Palmer have been at odds
since January, and no longer
have a working relationship.

Last night’s vote — which was
ongoing at press time — will
determine the officers that stay
on and who will be removed,
thus allowing the union to move
forward.

Ms Harding told The Tribune
that the members of the union
called the meeting, and it is they
who will decide its future.

The contracts between the
Bahamasair, Nassau Flight Ser-
vices and the AAAWU expire
in 2009, and Ms Harding said
that with proposals for new con-
tracts needing to be submitted
six months before the deadline,
she is keen to return her focus
back to the work of the union.

The next scheduled election
for the union was not supposed
to be until June 2009.

Tribune Staff Reporter

THE Ministry of Lands and
Local Government has issued
an apology to the Price Busters
retail chain for publicly identi-
fying the company in connec-
tion with the sale of counter-
feit Colgate toothpaste.

The apology was issued yes-
terday in a press release after
the president of the retail chain,
Craig Walkine, questioned the
ministry for identifying his com-
pany.

The ministry, the statement
reads, “apologises to Price
Busters for this slippage and
error and assures the general
public that Price Busters, as a
good corporate citizen, was and
is in no way engaged in any
activity wherein they knowing-
ly offer adverse products to the
public for their consumption or
usage.

“We therefore take full
advantage of this opportunity
to encourage the management
of Price Busters to continue
their entrepreneurship and
encourage the support of
Bahamian consumers in ensur-

for Price Busters gaffe

Statement issued over toothpaste warning

ing the success of that estab-
lishment,” the statement said.

Price Buster was identified
on July 4, after having been
found carrying the toothpaste
labelled ‘Made in South Africa’,
which reportedly contains low
levels of Diethylene glycol — an
ingredient used in anti-freeze.

Mr Walkine said that his
company had removed coun-
terfeit toothpaste in late June
based on a recall in the US by
the Food and Drug Adminis-
tration. And, he said, when local
authorities informed the com-
pany that additional types of
Colgate toothpaste were also
suspected to be counterfeit, they
were removed immediately.

In explaining the ministry’s
decision to apologise, deputy
permanent secretary Alphaues
Forbes said ihat Price Busters
has faced claims for refunds by
people who did not buy the
counterfeit product from them.

And, when companies are
named publicly, he continued, it
can jeopardise the livelihood of

scores of Bahamians in all levels
of the business if there is a pan-
ic resulting from unproved
claims about the recalled prod-
uct.

Mr Forbes also acknowl-
edged that as a result of his
ministry’s checks of other ven-
dors since this story broke in
The Tribune, a wholesaler was
found with counterfeit tooth-
paste made in China, which has
since been seized, and is being
tested by the ministry.

At this stage, however, Mr
Forbes said that it is unclear if
the toothpaste contains either
the anti-freeze ingredient or
high levels of harmful bacteria —
as was discovered in Canada.

“We have to now go and test
the product that we found to
make sure that it contains this
substance,” he said.

Mr Forbes added that his
ministry will report the findings
of their testing to the public
when it is completed, and that
checks for the counterfeit
toothpaste are still ongoing.

Industrial agreement signed at Morton Salt

Morton Bahamas has signed
a new five year industrial
agreement with Bahamas
Industrial Manufacturers and
Allied Workers Union, it was
announced yesterday.

The Inagua based company
and union have finally agreed
on terms for a contract, bring-
ing an end to two years of con-
frontation and bad blood.

Glenn Bannister, managing

director of Morton Bahamas, ©

and union officials signed the
contract at the Ministry of
Labour and Maritime Affairs
yesterday.

Mr Bannister said it was a
pleasure for him to be there
and sign the agreement after
“two years of arduous, and
painstaking negotiations.”

“T would like to say thank
you to the union, the president,
his members and officers and
we look forward to working
together to keep Morton
Bahamas Ltd in Inagua a sol-
vent and productive compa-
ny,” he said.

“After all, the biggest chal-
lenge to the company is the
global competition in the mar-
ket place. We must work
together to keep the company
productive and profitable. I
look forward in the future to
working very closely with the
union in accomplishing this
goal,” Mr Bannister said.

Wilfred Seymour, president
of the Bahamas Industrial
Manufacturers and Allied
Workers Union, said that the
union strongly believes that in

Hi MORTON Salt and union officials at the signing

order for the agreement to
work, there must be equal
respect from both sides.

“We invite management to
use this signing as a new begin-

ning in. the relationship:

between the union, the bar-
gaining unit, members ‘and
employer,” he said.

Obie Ferguson, lawyer for
the union, outlined what he
said were improvements in the
new agreement, including:

e A total wage increase for a
five-year period of 20.3 per
cent including back pay.

e Article 35, which pertains
to allowances, states that acting
pay is to be 40 per cent of the
differential between the
employee’s current rate of pay
and the employees rate of pay
for whom he or she is standing
in for, for all hours worked

e In the same article, respon-
sibility pay is to be 70 per cent
of the differential between the



OW



employee’s current rate of pay
and the employee’s rate of pay
for whom the employee is
replacing for all hours worked

e According to Article 22,
which deals with industrial
accident leave, employees will
be able to get paid time off to
see a physician. .

e Under article 28, should a
holiday occur during an
employee’s week of vacation,
an additional day with pay will
be added to their vacation

Mr Ferguson said that the
meetings held were respectful,
even though at times it was a
“little rough.”

Thelma Beneby, permanent
secretary in the Ministry of
Maritime Affairs and Labour,
speaking on behalf of the Min-
ister Dion Foulkes, congratu-
lated all parties for demon-
strating once again that dia-
logue is the key to lasting
peace and prosperity for all

Professional terrorists

A CHILL went down the spine of the
world when it was discovered that many of
the bomb plotters who mercifully failed in
the recent car bomb attempts in London and
Glasgow were doctors. The basic tenet of
the medical profession going back to the
times of ancient Greece is “do no harm.”
One cannot but sympathize with Dr. Khaled
Hamid in St. Louis when he said: “I felt sick.
The idéa that a physician would participate
in that is incomprehensible to me. We're
hurt as Muslims and as physicians who
believe sacred life must be protected.”

I also heard voices saying that this proves
that poverty, repression, and lack of political
and human rights has nothing to do with the
making of a terrorist. These people were
middle-class professionals, many of whom
had met in Cambridge, England, living in a
free and open society.

They were in no way poor, downtrodden,
or politically repressed.

I believe this to be a basic misunderstand-
ing of not only the rising phenomenon of
Islamic extremism, but the very nature of
political, social, and revolutionary move-
ments in general.

In any militant cause the leaders and
activists are usually better educated and bet-
ter off financially than the mass of people
they claim to represent.

Revolutionaries like to call them the van-
guard.

The famous British traitors of the Cold
War, many of whom met at Cambridge Uni-
versity, joined the Communists not because
they themselves were oppressed by capital-
ism. But they were deeply affected by what
they saw as the great inequalities in Western
democracies that the Great Depression of
the 1930s intensified.

Many of the early leaders of Irish resis-
tance to British rule were Protestants rather
than part of the majority Catholic popula-
tion. Why? Because Protestants were allowed
more participation in British political pro-
fessional life than were Catholics, and were
therefore in a better position to effectively
organize for the Irish cause. The early Bol-
sheviks were seldom from the peasant or
worker classes.

Many terrorists, revolutionaries, and mass-
movement leaders have been professionals.
Mahatma Gandhi, although he dressed in
peasant clothes, was a lawyer. Yasser Arafat
was an engineer. Che Guevara was trained as
a doctor.

Al Qaeda, is a doctor.

Bin Laden himself was a successful busi-
nessman from a rich Saudi family.

When you are on the bottom rung of soci-
ety you are not in a position to do much
more than survive. But if you are educated
and able to look around, you can relate to
the poverty and oppression of your particu-
lar group, even if you are not yourself poor
and oppressed.

Most Muslims in Europe are as horrified
and disturbed by terrorism as the Christian
majority.

But many, even those born in Europe, find
themselves in a half and half world where
they are no longer Asians, Middle Eastern-
ers, or North Africans, but not quite accept-
ed as Frenchmen, Germans, or British. Many
Muslims in Western Europe live in compar-
ative poverty to the general population, and
unemployment is widespread.

The more education young Muslims get
the more they begin to notice that all is not
well in the greater Muslim world. They see
that many of their coreligionists in Europe
are on the lowest economic levels, and every
time they turn on a television set Muslims in
Muslim lands somewhere are getting ham-
mered. A Muslim community leader in Man-
chester, England, once told me that if you
turn on the evening news a bit late, it some-
times takes a moment to figure out whether
smoke, and flames, and gunfire on the screen
are in Lebanon, Gaza, Afghanistan, Somalia,
or Iraq. He said this had a big effect on the
Muslim young.

And then there is the Internet. Experts
on terrorism say that you cannot overesti-
mate the power of the Internet to inflame the
passions of Muslim youth. With a computer
you can connect with all the injustices of the
Muslim world, a once great society that lies
fallow in poverty, political oppression, and
foreign occupation. :

Whereas fiery imams used to be the most
feared recruiting tool for violence, the Inter-
net has now taken over the leading role in
incitement.

A tiny minority turns to extremism, and
today’s young terrorists are self-starting.

So although potential terrorists may not
themselves be poor or oppressed, poverty
in the economic, social, and political sense is
a great motivator for terrorism. Not even
doctors are immune from that virus.

Problems the
Haitian-Bahamian
ommunity face

The following letter was writ-
ten to The Tribune by a
Freeport resident before the
May 2 election. It reflects the
feelings of many in the Hait-
ian community. — Ed.

EDITOR, The Tribune.

THIS letter is to inform you
and your avid readers of the
frustrating problems that we
in the Haitian Bahamian com-
munity face. The first and
main problem is that we have
the hardest time getting our
passports and travel docu-
ments. We were born in this
country many years ago, and
in most cases before this coun-
try became independent in
1973. We still cannot get our
Bahamian passports even
though our constitution guar-
antees us this right.

Because election is fast
approaching us now, everyone
is coming to us talking about
“they are going to help you”.
To all of the Haitian Bahami-
ans who were born in this
country before Independence,
please tell the politicians that
you want your passports
before you are going to vote
for them.

We are tired of voting for
politicians who only come
around at election time. Hait-
ian Bahamians please tell any-
one who wants your support
and your vote where you
stand.

Ask them, what are the
issues they care about, how
and when are they going to
meet with the Haitian Bahami-
an community. We are sick
and tired of politicians saying
one thing and then doing
something else.

We want to know where
they stand on the issues before
we cast our votes for them. We
are tired of them using our
families, our loved ones as
scapegoats and deporting
them.

How can we vote for the
same group of people who
have been abusing, humiliating
and mistreating us for almost
40 years?

We need Human Rights in
the Bahamas, because we have
no rights in the Bahamas. We
need representatives who will
not be afraid to speak out for
us.

We don’t need lip service,
we need action. Shane Gibson
said that he was deporting
Haitians because he was cre-
ating jobs for Bahamians. Up
to now, I have not seen any
jobs yet. For the massive num-

ber of Haitians that have been
deported from Freeport,
Grand Bahama, have him tell
us how many jobs were creat-
ed under his ministry as Min-
ister of Labour. He thinks he
did good. This is the worst for
the Bahamas and Bahamians.
The only persons who spoke
out on our behalf were Hubert
Ingraham and Fred Smith.
After that no one else has spo-
ken up for us in the Bahamas.

If the PLP come to you and
ask you to vote for them, ask
them, when they were deport-
ing the Haitians if there were
any PLP leaders who asked
them to stop. Ask them how
many people they deported?
Tell them to their face, and
don’t. wait till they leave and
speak behind their backs. Ask
them about the 10 Haitians
who were killed in Exuma,
and there are no answers until
now. ;

Ask them about all the Hait-
ian homes that were burned
down in Abaco. What did they
say or do to prevent these fires
which are now a regular thing
in Marsh Harbour? Under the
PLP, Abaco had more
unsolved fires in the Haitian
community than at any other
time in the history of the
Bahamas.

Even the US Ambassador
has noted how evil and preju-
diced the, Bahamians. are
towards Haitians.

This is a shame for the white
man to see and speak out
about the blatant abuses, and
discrimination that our own
black Bahamian brothers and
sisters dish out to their less
fortunate Haitian brothers and
sisters.

The PLP deported the
Haitians in an effort to
impress the Bahamian public,
but this has resulted in the fur-
ther destruction of the
Bahamian economy.

Haitians make so many
valuable contributions to this
country and now we are seeing
it. The stores are closing daily,
because there is no business.
They left no one to patronise
the Bahamian people’s busi-
nesses. When did you ever
hear of volunteers being
harassed by the immigration

department? Only. under the.

PLP administration.
In 1986 we were faced with
Loftus Roker. Now in 2006 we

had Shane Gibson. The sad
fact is that Bahamians have
not figured out yet that
Haitians are here to stay.

Shane Gibson thought he
was God, but whatever a per-
son does on earth, he will have
to pay for it on earth. Even
though he sent the Haitians
back to Haiti, but God has giv-
en us justice anyway in His
way. I will never forget Shane
Gibson because of what he did
to my people. The only party
that all the Haitian Bahami-
ans have to believe in is the
FNM. Our leader is Hubert
Ingraham.

Tell Renae Grant, she needs
to start talking with the Hait-
ian-Bahamians in Eight Mile
Rock.

If she does not come soon,
she will lose big. If we can’t
vote for the FNM, we won’t
vote.

Only one party who cares
for the Haitian people is the
FNM people.

Don’t let the PLP people
buy you, and five years later
you can’t find food to eat.

Look at all the hotels that
have closed down. The PLP
have not been able to open
anyone yet.

Anytime the PLP is in pow-
er, we get no respect.

We cannot find jobs. Please,
my Haitian Bahamian broth-
ers and sisters, don’t let the
PLP come and try to fool you,
telling you they will do some-

‘thing for you, because they -

can’t do anything for them-
selves.
Look at the way they treat.C..

B Moss. If they betrayed his

trust, what do you think they
will do to you?

He was a loyal, faithful
decent PLP Senator, and when
they two-timed him, they
called him everything besides
the child of God.

He was good enough for
them to use him as a PLP Sen-
ator for almost five years, but
he was not good enough when
it was time for them to keep
their promises to him. If PLPs
can’t trust PLP's, why should
you trust them? —

The only reason why I am
writing this letter to the Editor
is because I am a Bahamian
who was born in the Bahamas
before Independence and I
have a right to speak out just
like every one else.

With travel organisers, tourists and resorts consistently complaining
about the state of Nassau’s Lynden Pindling International Airport,
we take a look at the revolving nightmare of the baggage claim...



Another suitcase in another hall?

@ By TANEKA THOMPSON

ANGRY travellers are com-
plaining about the “chaotic”
state of the baggage claim sec-
tion in the Lynden Pindling
International Airport over the
holiday weekend.

According to two travellers,
on Monday afternoon several
of the airport’s luggage convey-
or belts were “out of commis-
sion” leaving only two of the
four belts functional. Report-
edly, baggage from six or seven
different airlines clogged the
belts, while “backed up” bags
from earlier flights littered the
already congested area.

“It was mayhem, I’ve never
seen anything like it,” a
Bahamian passenger who trav-
elled on the Jet Blue airline told
The Tribune. “Basically there
were four or five airlines putting
baggage on one belt. Everything
couldn’t fit on the belts and lug-
gage was toppling over on the
ground,” she said.

The passenger, who asked for
her name to be withheld, said it
took her and her husband over
an hour to locate their bags “in
the maze” of luggage that was
discarded haphazardly on the
ground.

She also expressed embar-
rassment over the way airport
personnel treated locals as well
as tourists, who were all picking
their way through the “maze” in
a tedious effort to locate their
baggage. The source added that
airport baggage handlers pro-
vided little, to no assistance to
the irate and confused trav-
ellers. “When someone would
ask a baggage handler which
belt their luggage might be on,
they would just say ‘go look on
the ground’.”

“There is a problem with our
belts [at the airport],” Mervin
Hutchinson, general manager

of the Airport Authority, admit-
ted yesterday. “We have peo-
ple who come in on a nightly
basis and perform maintenance
duties,” he added.

Upgrade

In March 2007, the Nassau
Airport Development Compa-
ny (NADC) took charge of the
infrastructure and upgrading of
the airport. According to Craig
Richmond, president of NADC,
all of the conveyor belts at the
airport were functional on Mon-
day, but due to overweight lug-
gage and other items, two of the
belts had to be shut down.

“Well actually they were all
operational, but at one point they































had to be shut down because the
bags that were coming in were
too heavy for them and were
they going to burn out,” Mr
Richmond told The Tribune.
“We're finding that a lot of the

objects being put on the

carousels are really heavy, such
as engine blocks, and even a
motorcycle. We’re trying to work
with the airlines to tell them
don’t put those [items] on the
carousels. Even the regular bags
are heavy, and if we don’t stop
[the belts] they will burn out.”
While Mr Richmond con-
tends that incidents like Mon-
day’s are not “happening all the
time”, he says that efforts are
being put in place to upgrade
existing machinery at the air-
port, however the results will

“Expectations are really high
that we are going to be able to
change everything overnight,
and it’s just not that simple. It’s
going to require a little bit of
tolerance on everybody’s part

‘while we get through this. For

example, those carousels are
not cheap, and the area that
they’re in now will be com-
pletely demolished and rebuilt.
We’re doing everything we can

limitations.”

By summer next year, the
NADC plans to start construc-
tion on a new terminal at the
airport, with a projected com-
pletion date of early 2010. Cur-
rently, the organisation is work-
ing on a strategy to better han-

in the baggage terminal and to
ensure that “fallback” measures
are in place to recover from

' these disruptions. “We just have

to make sure recovering from
these things is just as important
as not letting them happen,” Mr
Richmond added.

“We’re working on some con-
tingency plans to bring the
heavy bags around to the Cus-
toms hall, but that will require
the co-operation of baggage
handlers and Customs officers.”
This contingency plan would

we will have something in place

frankly is difficult to prevent,”

The importance of the press to good government

Without the press, the mod-
ern emperor — Whether dictator
or elected president — is insulated,
encapsulated in a cocoon of
many who are either sycophants
or who are truly awed by those in
power. — David Steinberg

It is in the public interest that
everything should come out. —
Tony Benn

Every bureaucracy seeks to
increase the superiority of the
professionally informed by keep-
ing their knowledge and inten-
tions secret. — Max Weber

Pee. I find it difficult
to write about this sub-
ject — it's such a no-brainer, and
so crucial to the good gover-
nance of the country that it
upsets me.

Here are the bare-faced
facts: Public authorities act in the
public interest. There is no legit-
imate interest in keeping public
information private. And with-
out access to information we
cannot hold public authorities to
account.

In fact, colonial authorities
purposely used secrecy to main-
tain their power and pres-
tige. But although we gained our

"freedom" from British rule over
30 years ago, we have yet to per-
suade our homeboy rulers to tol-
erate freedom of information.
On the contrary, they continue
to believe that secrecy (of even
the most trivial information)
equals power.

In Kenya, for example, a file
of newspaper clippings was
marked "very confidential" and
access to it denied without the
permission of the permanent sec-
retary. And we have no doubt
that at this very moment some
Bahamian bureaucrat is refus-
ing to answer a reporter's phone
call or e-mail.

Our 1973 independence con-
stitution guarantees freedom of
conscience, expression, assem-
bly and association. It also says
we are free "to receive and
impart ideas and information
without interference."

Unfortunately, Tough Call
has never been able to "receive
or impart" information without
some pompous civil servant or
politician running "interference",
which indicates to me that the
entire government is unconsti-
tutional.

The principle of freedom of
information — that citizens have
a right to information held by
public authorities — is increas-

ingly accepted in the developed
world, although access laws face
huge implementation problems
and often receive only lip ser-
vice from bureaucrats.

You may think that freedom
of information is an American
idea, but you would be wrong.
It was first legislated in Sweden.
A libertarian parliamentarian
named Anders Chydenius is
regarded as the father of free-
dom of information as we under-
stand it today.

In 1765 he published a pam-
phlet called The National Gain,
calling for the abolition of trade
restrictions, the lifting of cen-
sorship, and freedom of infor-
mation. And the following year
he persuaded the Swedish par-
liament to give the public free
access to all official documents,
as Well as parliamentary reports
and records.

This law required that offi-
cial documents should "upon
request immediately be made
available to anyone" at no
charge. And at the same time,
the Swedes established the
world’s first parliamentary
ombudsman.

It was not until after the Sec-
ond World War that US man-
dated government agencies "to
keep and maintain records open
to inspection by the public."
That was followed by a 1958 law
barring bureaucrats from using
legal precedents to keep the pub-
lic's business secret. But a Free-
dom of Information Act was not
passed in the US until 1966. And

it had to be strengthened in 1974
following the Watergate scan-
dal.

From the 1960s onwards, pres-
sure grew on governments
around the world to legislate
access to public information.
Australia, Canada and New
Zealand all enacted FOI laws in
1982. But the United Kingdom
delayed until 2000, and that law
did not fully kick in until 2005.

I: the English-speaking
Caribbean, Antigua and
Barbuda, Belize, Jamaica, and
Trinidad and Tobago have all
passed access legislation. Others
— including the British Virgin
Islands, the Cayman Islands and
Guyana — are discussing draft
legislation. The Jamaican law
was helped along by the (Jim-
my) Carter Centre at the request
of former prime minister P. J.
Patterson.

Common features of all these
laws include a general right of
access to information held by
public authorities, subject to
exemptions protecting specified
public interests. Disclosure can
be refused only where it can be
shown that the information

would cause harm, and there is
usually a right of appeal to an
independent body.

Freedom of information laws
have turned up some interesting
facts over the years. For exam-
ple, USAToday discovered
that President Gerald Ford gave
Indonesian strongman Suharto
the green light to invade East
Timor in 1975. That invasion
killed 200,000 people and later
had to be reversed by the United
Nations at great cost.

And the Associated Press was
able to substantiate a long-held
African-American allegation
that white people had cheated
them out of their land. In many
cases, documents showed that
white officials had simply
approved the transfer of prop-
erty deeds.

Some of the successful
requests under the Jamaican
Access to Information Act cov-
ered details of contracts and
expenditure relating to infra-
structure projects, staffing lev-
els at a public hospital, and
school test scores.

In Britain, freedom of infor-
mation requests have. found that
scores of police officers have
criminal records; that the prime

that never see the light of day —
such as the probe into the beat-
ing of a foreign journalist by a

Defence Force officer, or the »

visa scandal, or the public hous- ~

ing scandal — just to name a few.

But it's not just about curios- °

ity. The aim of a freedom of
information act is to promote
good governance by
enabling people like you and me
to participate in the making and
administration of our national
laws and policies. And the risk of
government embarrassment is
no justification for keeping pub-
lic information secret.

he British FOI law cov-

ers 100,000 public bod-
ies — including government
departments, schools and coun-

cils, which have 20 working days
to respond to requests for infor-

mation. And no-one has to give ,.

a reason for their request. An

independent authority enforces ,

the law.

In its 2007 manifesto, the Free
National Movement promised
to enact such a law for the
Bahamas. But that commitment
has appeared in earlier election
platforms too. And, as we all
know, the mere passage of a law
is no guarantee that its provi-
sions will not be ignored.

Experience in other countries
suggests that the key elements
that make an access to informa-
tion law effective are: political
will, information management
capacity, and training to change
the mindset of civil servants as
well as the public. More impor-
tantly, the law needs to be
designed with actual implemen-

tation in mind rather than just «

going through the motions.

* According to Laura Neu-
mann of the Carter Centre:
"Effective implementation is a
joint partnership between the
holders of information (govern-
ment or the private sector) and
the requesters (citizens, civil soci-
ety organizations, media, etc.).
Recognizing that there is dual
responsibility helps us under-
stand the nature of the challenge
and contributes to the design of
viable solutions."

As Richard Calland recently
wrote in the South African Mail
and Guardian newspaper,
"promising transparency is one

‘thing, delivering it is quite anoth-

er."

Pastors call for return
to One Bahamas plan

A GROUP of senior reli-
gious leaders is calling for a
renewed emphasis on the origi-
nal principles of the One
Bahamas programme — saying
that lingering inequalities and
racial divisions must be over-
come in the name of unity.

One Bahamas was begun
many years ago by several
prominent Bahamians, includ-
ing Sir Durward Knowles and
Sir Orville Turnquest, and
aimed at bringing all compo-
nents of Bahamian society
together in the spirit of unity.
A One Bahamas festival is still
held in November every year,
but the pastors feel that its cen-
tral message needs be high-
lighted once again.

“On the occasion of our 34th
year of independence and 40
years since majority rule, we
believe the time is opportune
for us to look again and under-
score the ideals enunciated in
the National One Bahamas Pro-
gramme,” said a statement
issued by the group.

“As we celebrate our inde-
pendence, we believe and
declare that there can be no
nobler pursuit, nor higher call-
ing than for all Bahamians to
work for a united Bahamas.”

The statement was signed by:
Bishop Simeon Hall, senior pas-
tor of New Covenant Baptist
Church; Bishop Samuel
Greene, president of the Zion
Baptist Convention; Bishop
Gregory Minnis, pastor of New

still exist today — “must not

the needed dialogue to bring
about greater social, racial and
economic harmony. All
Bahamians, regardless of race,
political affiliation, or religious
pe -suasion, must heed the call
to seek ways to build One
Bahamas,” the statement said.

It said that this year’s inde-

a juncture in the nation’s histo-
ry when it is imperative that all

Tribune Feature Writer

APPARENTLY, sharing the
same surname is no proof that
we are related. So if I assumed
that being a Burrows automati-
cally made me family to all Bur-
rows’ | may have to think again.
Who knows ~ I might just be
related to Stephens from
Jamaica, or a Robinson some-
where in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

And the colour of a person’s
skin? Well that is not a fool
proof indication of ones ancestry
either. My brown skin may have
me fooled to believe that ama
descendant of Africa alone,
when I might really share ances-
try with someone in England or
some Roman royalty.

Since June 2004, Bahamians
have been discovering new and
interesting facts about their
geneology. They have been con-
firming their true relatives, and
finding new genetic connections
that go way beyond what is writ-
ten in the family tree list in the
family Bible. ‘Phey have even
been acquainting themselves
with the African tribe from
which they descend.

[his is all being done through
the Bahamas DNA Project, the
brainchild of Peter Roberts, a
Bahamian professor at Georgia
State University, where he has
worked as an archivist for the
past 18 years. Professor Roberts
interned at the Smithsonian's
National Museum of African
Art, and part of his studies
focused on African retentions in
Bahamian culture. He has fasci-
nated with family history for the
past 30 years, he told Tribune
Woman in a recent interview.

A Bahamian who resides in
the United States, and is inter-
ested in his own family origin,
Mr Roberts decided to take the

, oration Is experiencing significant

Y-chromosone test (to deter-
mine his direct see line).
Mr Roberts’ family from Marsh
Harbour enjoys a legend that his
great-great grandfather and two
brothers sailed from Belfast and
were shipwrecked in Abaco,

Despite this tale, Peter con-
tinued to believe that all the
Roberts families in The
Bahamas shared a common
ancestry back to about 1720. But
when he compared test results
with a Roberts from Key West
whose ancestry is from Harbour
Island by way Green Turtle Cay,
and another Roberts with ances-
try from Great Guana Cay, it as
discovered that no two of them
were related.

As it turned out, Mr Roberts’
closest genetic matches have
Scottish heritage. What was puz-
zling is that he also matched a
Reid in Jamaica. Mr Roberts lat-
er found out that that man’s
direct paternal line also led back
to Scotland.

Hoping to share the test with
his fellow Bahamians he initiat-
ed The Bahamas DNA Project.
This project is similar to a much
larger study aimed at mapping
how humankind populated the
earth. That global project is a
five-year research partnership
between National Geographic
and IBM, with public participa-
tion through Family Tree DNA,
the same testing company used
by the Bahamas Project.

In town recently to present
the findings of the project thus
far, Peter Roberts spoke at a
forum hosted by The Bahamas
Historical Society. What he
revealed was just as interesting
as his own personal findings.

Mr Roberts has identified 175
different surnames in the
Bahamas. One third of those sur-
names have been represented
thus far. But of this number, only
7 geneologies have actually been
confirmed. In order to confirm
these geneologies, more people
will need to be tested.



@ THE double helix of DNA

Using a simple DNA test,
participants are subjected only
to a cheek swab which they
order from the Bahamas DNA
Project link. The swab is self
administered, sent back to the
lab, and in two months they have
their results.

The Bahamas DNA Project
will either perform a Y-chromo-
some test on any male with direct
paternal
Bahamas, or a mtDNA test for
men or women with direct mater-
nal ancestry in the Bahamas.
However, the mtDNA test is
more valuable in revealing deep
ancestry and is less suited for
genealogy purposes. Women
may also participate by recruiting
a brother, father, or other male
relative with Bahamian ancestry
to take the Y-chromosome test.
The results will be maintained to
match future Bahamian partici-
pants.

The tests conducted thus far
have revealed much. Of the 129
volunteer participants of the
Bahamas DNA Project, 22 per
cent of them live in the
Bahamas. Eighty-three of the
129 participants have taken the
Y-chromosone test, represent-
ing 57 different surnames.

line ancestry from the Bahamas
or they have direct maternal line
ancestry from the Bahamas,” Mr
Roberts explained.

“Their results can be com-
pared with over 100,000 people
worldwide whose results are in
various databases. National Geo-
graphic's Genographic Project
is currently testing 100,000 peo-
ple from indigenous ethnic
groups worldwide and those
results should also be available
for comparison within about
three years,” he added.

Some people with the Lowe
surname were tested, and based
on their geneology, we know
who the first Lowe was in the
Bahamas. They tested two of his
descendants who match with
people living in Portugal and in
Portuguese colonies. In speak-
ing with two other
Lows since the results were
revealed, Mr Roberts said that
they have also mentioned an oral
history linking them to Portugal.

One Wells family was tested
and their DNA matched persons
from Spain and those from
Spanish colonies.

What was also interesting is
that some people in the
Bahamas who thought that they
had only African ancestry, dis-
covered that they had European
descendants as well.

Two Eldons have been tested
and their DNA match the same
genetic signature. But their
DNA also matches the sole Stur-
rup who was tested — which fur-
ther cements the view that sur-
names do not hecessarily limit
family ties.

There were 46 people of dif-
ferent surnames who took the
mtDNA test. Forty-four of them
had no idea that they were relat-
ed to someone else in the pro-
ject. But the DNA results -
revealed that they did share a
relation.

There were two of them who
suspected that they shared ances-
try with someone in the study.
And that was confirmed.

Of the overall results, three
families had some interesting his-
tory. First, the Sweeting that was
tested appears to be a descen-
dent of a Roman soldier. But Mr
Roberts noted that more Sweet-
ings will have to be tested in
order to confirm this.

Then the Pierce family appar-
ently has Eastern European
roots.

A Major who tested matches
the DNA signature of a Majors
in Baltimore, Maryland who
belong to a rare group of Euro-
peans called K2. Mr Roberts
noted that less than 1 per cent of
Europeans belong to this group.
The most famous person in this
group is Thomas Jefferson.

It was also discovered that
there are two different Maura
families in the Bahamas. Before
testing, there was thought to be
only one Maura family here and
that everyone with that surname
were related.

With a popular surname like
Rolle, history tells us that various
slaves took on that name. But
the test, said Mr Roberts, will
determine which Rolles are tru-
ly related, and which ones simply
share the same name.

The ultimate benefit of this
project, said Mr Roberts, is that it
opens a new dimension to family
history. Before, we only had
paper geneology, which goes back
as far as the early 1800s at best.

He also noted that there are
many people willing to join the
project if there was funding to
help pay for their test since they
cannot afford the full cost of
their test. So donations to the
project are welcomed. Thus far,
$1,290.in donations have already
been spent to help others test.
More than $400 has been ear-
marked to help test certain sur-
names or descendants of partic-
ular ancestors.

The project is especially inter-
ested in testing a male with the
surname of Albury, Bethell,
Bowleg, Cash, Cox, Higgs, Ingra-

-ham, Kemp, Key, Lightbourne

(with an e at the end), Newbold,
Pratt, Rolle, Roker, Sands, or
Thompson.

The project also welcomes
Bahamians of earlier Chinese,
Greek, or Lebanese ancestry (on
their direct paternal line or their
direct maternal line ancestry).

Claim that Harbour Island power:

in the heat" while tourists have
been heard describing the nor-
mally quaint and popular com-
munity as "third world" because
of the ongoing problems. "It is
almost chaotic here," said one
local.

Reports reached The Tri-
bune Monday that over 90 peo-
ple were demonstrating on
Dunmore Street in front of the
BEC office, however this could
not be confirmed. However,
several sources independently
claimed yesterday that some
individuals have even "taken
matters into their own hands",
attempting to turn power back
on at the local BEC plant.

A general manager at one
Harbour Island hotel, Coral
Sands, claims to have lost
$15,000 worth of electrical
equipment as a result of the fail-
ures. The hotel, and several oth-
er major resorts contacted by
The Tribune are spending sig-
nificant funds running their gen-
erators at all hours of the day to
cover the loss of supply, which
can occur up to six times a day
for hours at a time, sources con-
firmed.

Another small local hotel

owner said that two rooms of

visitors checked out last week
after complaining about the
heat in their rooms when their
air conditioning unit went
down.

Ice-making machines are
particularly susceptible to the
fluctuations in supply, according
to reports, with the effect that
ice also became a scarce com-
modity on the island.

FROM page one

In an interview with The Tribune, Mr Rich-

“Tourists think we're stupid
because we don't have any
water, ice or current," said a
hotel worker.

Meanwhile, boaters — major
contributors to the ’Briland
economy — also have been sig-
nificantly affected. According
to a concerned resident, one
yacht owner was among ten that
have left Harbour Island mari-
nas this week because of the
conditions.

"I work every day with
tourists and three say they are
never coming back to ’Briland
because of damage cause to
their boats. One man said he
had a $30,000 repair bill on his
boat system ’cause it got ‘fried’
in power surge. He swore he
will never come back," said the
despairing resident in an e-mail
to The Tribune yesterday.

"It is embarrassing at work
and it is miserable at home,"
said the local.

Resident Martin Lee, claimed
that MP for the area Alvin
Smith, despite being a general-
ly good representative has not
addressed the issue satisfacto-
rily.

Yesterday however, Mr
Smith said that he was in fact
very concerned about the situa-
tion. He added that it was just
one of many utility supply-relat-
ed problems plaguing the Har-
bour Island community in par-
ticular.

While BEC has not provid-
ed, either to the press or resi-
dents, any explanation for the
situation, Mr Smith said that
the local power plant is short
of generators after a fire, and
one of the two that is currently
running is only working at half

its normal rate.

He suggested that the caper
ration has not planned ahead,
for the expansion that has,
occurred on the island and the‘
previous government did not!
make efforts to ensure the over-,
burdened system was upgrad=
ed in a timely manner.

The MP said he spoke to,
Minister of Works.and Trans-
port Earl Deveaux last week’
about the matter, and received,
assurances that Mr Deveaux
was giving his full attention to.
the crisis. However, Mr Smith‘
warned that the problem now:
has no short term solution. It
might even get worse for resi+
dents and businesses before i
gets better, particularly as the
Summer season brings extra,
visitors who will add to the
demand on electricity to power’
air conditioning units. Addi-?
tional water deficiencies may,
be a knock-on effect of pro-
longed power outages, he sug?
gested.

A general manager at one

major resort, who declined to
be named, said that while he
had pleaded with BEC in the
past for compensation for sup-
ply-related equipment failures,
he has now "stopped bother-
ing" because he has never been:
successful.
"Yesterday, BEC placed an,
advertisement in The Tribune:
in which it apologised to resi;
dents for what it described as:
"significant generation prob-
lems."

The advertisement informed
the public that BEC is "working
around the clock to correct the.
problem" and "regrets any:
inconvenience." ’ :

mond — an executive with Vancouver Airport
Services — said that while the Nassau Develop-
ment Company is currently maintaining and oper-
ating the airport, it is also simultaneously working
toward completing its project definition report.

The report, which will include a “very defined”
business plan and about 25 per cent of the air-
port’s new $250-$350 million design plan, will be
presented to Cabinet in mid-September of this
year.

In the meantime, Mr Richmond said, “a whole
host” of projects are being carried out at the air-
port to improve and upgrade the out-dated facil-
ity.

The NAD president said that just under $10
million has recently been earmarked to upgrade
the existing terminals.

“We already have a roof repair contract, | think
people appreciate that, to stop the leaks. We've
approved $2 million in projects to improve the

an adult were involved with
the murder.

“We're not going to say that
it was only two persons as the

And so, as we interview peo-

Mexican gas
explosions
force factories,
businesses to
temporarily
Shut down

li MEXICO CITY

HONDA, Hershey’s and
other multinational compa-
nies temporarily shut down
their factories in western
Mexico on Wednesday after
rebels attacked a key natural
gas pipeline, according to
Associated Press.

The small, left-wing guer-
rilla group that claimed
responsibility for the explo-
sions issued a statement late
Tuesday vowing to continue
the attacks, while the Mexi-
can government scrambled
to increase security at
“strategic installations”
across Mexico.

At least a dozen compa-
nies including Honda Motor
Co., Kellogg Co.’s, The Her-
shey Co., Nissan Motor Co.,
and Grupo Modelo SA were
forced to suspend or scale
back operations because of
the lack of natural gas, the
daily newspaper Excelsior
reported. They said they
faced millions of dollars in
losses.

Vitro SAB, a Mexican
company that makes glass
containers, said the shutdown
of two plants would cost it
about $800,000 a day. Vitro
said in a statement that it was
increasing production at oth-
er plants in Mexico to mini-
mize effects on customers.

Total business losses were
being estimated at more than
70 million pesos ($6.4 mil-
lion) a day, Excelsior report-
ed, citing unidentified
sources. The association rep-
resenting Mexican industry
said Wednesday it was look-
ing into the extent of the
explosions’ financial impact.

Officials from Mexico’s
state-owned oil and gas
monopoly Petroleos Mexi-
canos, or Pemex, said an
explosion Tuesday and two
more last week affected dif-
ferent sections of the same
pipeline. The company sent
150 workers to repair the
line.

The disruption affected
clients in the industry-rich
city of Guadalajara, capital
of the western state of Jalis-
co; the industrial city of
Leon, in the central state of
Guanajuato; and the central
states of Queretaro and
Aguascalientes.

Pemex said the gas would
probably not be restored
until Friday at the earliest,
but was working to
provide alternate means of
delivery.

Tuesday’s explosion
caused no injuries but forced
the evacuation of communi-
ties around the town of
Coroneo, near Queretaro’s
capital, Pemex said. On July
5, two explosions on the
same pipeline in Guanajuato
also forced evacuations but
caused no injuries.

The group that claimed
responsibility for the explo-
sions is the “military zone
command of the People’s
Revolutionary Army,” or
EPR, a tiny rebel group that
staged several armed attacks
on government and police
installations in southern
Mexico in the 1990s, but was
later weakened by internal
divisions.

@ AFTER being moved from the Vehicle Assembly Building by the crawler-transporter, left, space shuttle Endeavour rests oa lauach pad 39b at the Kennedy Space
Center in Cape Canaveral, Fla., Wednesday, July 11, 2007.

Endeavour moves to launch pad
in preparation for NASA mission

@ CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.

THE shuttle Endeavour
arrived at its launch pad early
Wednesday for a flight that will
finally carry teacher-turned-
astronaut Barbara Morgan into
space, according to Associated
Press.

The mission, scheduled to
begin Aug. 7, will take Morgan
and six crewmates to the inter-
national space station.

It’s been a nearly five-year
wait for Endeavour, but the
shuttle has nothing on Morgan:
She’s been waiting 22 years to
reach orbit.

In 1985, Morgan was picked
as Christa McAuliffe’s backup
to become the first teacher in
space under a special NASA
program. Then the Challenger
carrying McAuliffe broke apart
shortly after liftoff in 1986, and
Morgan returned to teaching.
In 1998, she was selected as a
full-fledged astronaut.

On her first mission, the 55-
year-old Morgan will operate
the shuttle’s robotic arm, coor-
dinate the transfer of cargo and
talk from space to students at
three schools, if the mission is
extended.

Talking to students and
teachers Wednesday morning,
Morgan said she was most look-
ing forward to seeing McCall,
Idaho — where she t taught ele-
nientary students — from space.
She said the Endeavour crew
was training hard during their

last few weeks before launch.

“There’s a ton of work to be
done,” Morgan said during the
forum at-dohnson-Space Cen-
ter,

Morgan is far from being the
oldest astronaut ever to fly ona
space shuttle. Astronaut Story
Musgrave was 61 when he flew
his last mission aboard Colum-
bia in 1996, and John Glenn was
77 when he flew aboard Dis-
covery in 1998.

The Endeavour crew will
deliver a new truss segment,
5,000 pounds of cargo and fix a
gyroscope, which helps control
the station’s position. It also

plans four spacewalks if the mis- ,

sion is extended to 14 days.

“It has a little bit of every-
thing,” said Matt Abbott, lead
shuttle flight director.

Endeavour reached the
launch pad shortly after 3 a.m.,
completing a 3.4-mile trip
aboard the massive crawler-
transporter from the Vehicle
Assembly Building in seven
hours. It was a day late because
the weather had nixed plans to
move it early Tuesday.

The launch would be
NASA’s second shuttle flight
this year.

The last ime Endeavour was
at the pad was in November
2002, before its launch on a con-
struction mission to the space
station. It was the last shuttle
flight before the Columbia dis-
aster killed seven astronauts
and grounded the space shuttle

program for 2 1/2 years.

Endeavour has since under-
gone a major tune-up. The shut-
tle’s structure was inspected for
corrosion. Filter and seals were
replaced. More than 1,900 ther-
mal blankets were examined,
and two windows were replaced
with thicker panes.

“We’re really excited to have
Endeavour fly again,” Kim
Doering, NASA’s deputy man-
ager of the space shuttle pro-
gram, said Tuesday. “Obvious-
ly, having brand new belts and
hoses and having just checked
the structure and replaced all
the tiles — they’re brand new
— makes this a very nice vehi-
cle to climb on to.”

Endeavéur also has a new
system'which allows power
from the space station to be
transferred to the shuttle while
docked. If the new system
works properly, the il-day mis-
sion will be extended by an
extra three days.

@ ASTRONAUT Barbara
Morgan discusses her upcom-
_ing space shuttle mission with
students during "Meet an
Astronaut Day," at the Space
Center in Houston, Friday,
Jan. 19, 2007. Morgan, a for-
mer Idaho school teacher, is a
member of the STS-118 space
shuttle crew scheduled to
launch in August.

106 dead at Red Mosque; Pakistan army

At least

says commandos cleared out all militants

@ ISLAMABAD, Pakistan



COMMANDOS cleared the war-
ren-like Red Mosque complex of rebel
fighters Wednesday, ending a fierce
eight-day siege and street battles that
left more than 100 dead. The govern-
ment warned it would not tolerate mil-

itancy in any of Pakistan’s thousands of

religious schools, according to Associ-
ated Press.

Officials found no corpses of women
and children, although seven or eight of
the bodies had been burned beyond
recognition, apparently by the mili-
tants’ gasoline bombs, said Maj. Gen.
Waheed Arshad, a military spokesman.

At least 106 people were killed over-
all since the violence began at the Red
Mosque. They include 10 soldiers, one
police ranger and several civilians who
died in the crossfire.

The dead included the mosque’s pro

‘Taliban cleric Abdul Rashid Ghazi.

Arshad said 73 bodies believed to
be those of the mosque’s die-hard
defenders were found after the final,
35-hour assault that began carly Tues-
day.

“There may be a few more which
may be found in the debris. We don’t
expect there will be many,” Arshad
told Dawn News television. “We have
handed them (the bodies) to the civil-
ian authorities.”

The clite Special Services Group
commandos went in after unsuccess-
ful attempts to get the militants to sur-
render to the siege mounted by the
government following deadly street
clashes with armed supporters of the
mosque July 3.

The extremists had been using the
mosque as a base to send out radical-

ized students to enforce their version of

Islamic morality, including abducting

alleged prostitutes and trying to “re-
educate” them at the compound in the
heart of Pakistan’s capital.

Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz warned
that the government would act against
any other madrassa, or religious school,
found to be involved in militancy.

“Militancy cannot be promoted,
period,” he told reporters. “The law
will take its course, as the law took its
course here.”

President Gen. Pervez Musharrat
vowed five years ago to regulate Pak-
istan’s thousands of religious schools,
but concerns have only grown that
some are used as sanctuaries or train-
ing sites for militants — including ‘Tal-
iban rebels fighting in Afghanistan,

Deputy Information Minister ‘Tariq
Azim conceded it was possible that
other madrassas in Pakistan could be
harboring weaponry like the Red
Mosque, but added that the assault

had sent a strong message that the gov-
ernment “meant business.”

“We need to be now much more vig-
ilant, but I hope they (extremist

madrassas) have got the message that if

they are in involved in such activities,
they will have to face action,” he said.

An army officer, who spoke on con-
dition of anonymity because he was
not authorized to speak to the media,
said troops moved from room to room
in basements of the compound, blow-
ing up foxholes where militants had
been entrenched.

Relatives of young women, men and
children who had been in the mosque
waited behind army barricades and
inquired at morgues or a sports stadi-
um where authorities set up an infor-
mation center for those seeking missing
loved ones.

I am looking for my son who was
studying at the madrassa, but I don’t

know whether he is alive,” said Jan
Mohammed, 42, whose son,
Mohammed Khan, could not leave the
mosque during the siege. He was
among about 100 parents who were
gathered at the Sports stadium.

Ghazi’s body was pa oe. in the base-
ment of a women’s religious’ school
after a fierce gunbattle between gov-
ernment troops and militants, said Brig.
Javed Iqbal Cheema, a senior Interior
Ministry official.

Several security officials, who spoke
on condition of anonymity because
they were not authorized to speak to
the media, said Ghazi was wounded
by two bullets and gave no response
when ordered to surrender. Comman-
dos then fired another volley and found
him dead.

Arshad said Ghazi’s body had
been handed over to the Interior Min-
istry.

| Britain’s Brown
meets UN chief
and discusses
urgent need for
Darfur solution

m@ LONDON

BRITAIN'S premier and the

U.N. secretary-general met |

Wednesday and pledged to
intensify efforts to resolve the
crisis in Sudan's western Darfur
region, according to Associat-
ed Press.

Gordon Brown and Ban Ki-
moon told a news conference
they also discussed climate
change, the stalled world trade
negotiations, and the need for a
new drive to meet the United
Nations' Millennium Develop-
ment Goals, which aim to alle-
viate poverty, disease and
hunger around the world.

However, Brown said much
if their discussion focused on
finding a lasting solution to the
conflict in Darfur as "one of

the urgent areas for action in
the next few months."

"We are ready to engage
with Sudan as long as it coop-
erates. We are ready to take

action to protect the people of

Darfur, if it does not," he told
reporters.

The 7,000-strong African
Union force has failed to stop
the violence in Darfur, where
more than 200,000 people have

been killed and 2.5 million have

fled in nearly four years of

fighting between the govern-
ment and ethnic African rebels.

The violence only increased
after the government and one
rebel group signed a peace deal
last year. Other rebel groups
rejected the deal and contin-
ued fighting.

The meeting at Brown's

Downing Street office marked
Ban's first official visit to
Britain since he succeeded Kofi
Annan at the beginning of the
year.

Ban praised Brown for his
work on issues such as Third
World debt during his decade
as Britain's Treasury chief. Ban
also commended the "very
swift, dignified, decisive and
composed" way Brown and his.
new Cabinet dealt with the
recent failed car bomb attacks
in London and Glasgow.

On Tuesday, Ban met in
London with Tony Blair for the
first time since the former
prime minister was named an
envoy for the international
diplomatic Quartet on the Mid-
dle East — the U.S., the EU, the
U.N. and Russia.

China says sizzling economy grew
even faster in 2006 than first reported

@ BEIJING

CHINA’S sizzling economy grew even
faster in 2006 than previously reported, the
government said Wednesday, moving it clos-
er to overtaking Germany as the world’s
third-largest and possibly adding to fears
of overheating, according to Associated
Press."

The National Bureau of Statistics raised
its estimate of China’s 2006 growth rate from
10.7 percent to 11.1 percent.

It nudged up its estimate of total output by
146.4 billion yuan ($18.8 billion) to 21.1 tril-
jion yuan ($2.705 trillion)

The revision brought China closer to Ger-
many, the world’s third-largest economy after
the United States and Japan. Germany’s 2006
output was $3 trillion but its 2.5 percent
growth rate was well below China’s.

Report

The statistics agency routinely issues such
revisions to economic growth rates. But the
latest report could receive special attention
from Chinese leaders, who are trying to rein
in a boom that they worry could ignite a

_ financial crisis.

Chinese leaders want to maintain fast
growth to reduce poverty but are trying to
slow investment in auto manufacturing, real
estate and other areas where supply outstrips
demand. They worry that runaway spending
could ignite inflation or leave banks and bor-
rowers with dangerously high debt levels.

In the most recent official forecast, the

central bank’s research bureau said lasi
month the economy was expected to expand
by 10.8 percent this year.

That was in line with projections by the
World Bank and other economists, and
would be China’s fifth straight year of growth
in excess of 10 percent.

Wednesday’s revision was in line with the
opinions of ouiside economists, who said the
earlier figure seemed too low, suggesting the
economy was slowing despite surging exports
and other indicators.

The change comes amid reports of dou-
ble-digit growth in industrial output. invest-
ment and other economic indicators.

China’s trade surplus soared to a new
monthly high of $26.9 billion in June, the
government reported Tuesday.

That was despite official efforts to narrow
the ballooning trade gap by repealing rebates
of value-added taxes on exports.

The statistics bureau’s brier announcement
on Wednesday said the biggest increase in
China’s estimated output was in secondary
industries, which includes manufacturing,
construction and utilities.

The exact size of China’s economy is a
matter of debate, with foreign analysts saying
the small statistics agency lacks the resources
to provide more than a general estimate.

In December 2005, Beijing raised the offi-
cial size of the economy by nearly 17 per-
cent and retroactively boosted annual
growth figures for the previous decade fol-
lowing the first nationwide census of Chi-
na’s booming service industries such as
restaurants.

what larger than a railroad car,
will be part of a windowless
warren of five linked modules
being built at the institute off a
busy street near central
Moscow.

The institute and the Euro-
pean Space Agency, or ESA —
a "strategic partner" in the
project — are separately con-
sidering applications for the
mock voyage as well as two
shorter, preliminary experi-
ments — also with crews of six.
The ESA last month
announced it was looking for
candidates.

Once the main study begins,
the crew members will,remain
aboard for the duration bar-
ring emergencies, Belakovsky
said. "They will have taken off,
and that's it."

It will then be 250 days to
Mars and 240 days back, with
three participants spending a
month on the planet itself — or
rather, in a module meant to
represent it.

Before they "land," those
three will spend a month in a
separate module, lying on their
backs with their heads slightly
lower than their feet — a posi-
tion Belakovsky said was
meant to simulate weightless-
ness.

There will also be a bio-.

medical module and one for
storage and fitness. But the
crew will spend much of their
time in the 150 cubic meter
(5,300 cubic foot) living mod-
ule, which has a cabin for each
as well as a common room and
a kitchen.

All food will be taken on
before the simulated journey
begins, as will the water. No
alcohol, please, and no smok-
ing.

Scores flee as Lebanese army appears
to gear up for major assault on militants

@ BEIRUT, Lebanon

AT LEAST 150 Palestinians fled a northern refugee camp
Wednesday in anticipation of an assault by the Lebanese army
battling Islamic militants holed up inside, according to Associ-

ated Press.

Most of the refugees left with the help of the Palestinian
Red Crescent, said Samar Kadi, an International Committee
of the Red Cross communications officer.

Those fleeing arrived on foot at the southern entrance of the
Nahr el-Bared camp. They were searched by soldiers at a
Lebanese army checkpoint and then climbed into vehicles sent
by the Palestinian Red Crescent. The Lebanese army held
many of therg for interrogation, Kadi said.

Witnesses said the army was bringing in heavy teinforce-
ments to the camp area near the northern port of Tripoli, sug-
gesting a fresh assault was imminent.

A sniper from inside the camp killed a Lebanese soldier late
Tuesday after the Fatah Islam fighters rejected repeated calls

to surrender.

The mainstream Palestinian Fatah movement was reported
to have called on its guerrillas inside the camp to leave as well.

The latest buildup came as the country prepared to mark the
first anniversary of Israel’s invasion of southern Lebanon on

Thursday.

Fighting between Fatah Islam and the Lebanese army erupt-
ed May 20. Lebanon’s defense minister announced June 21
that the al-Qaida-inspired militants have been defeated and
declared major combat over after soldiers seized militant posi-

tions on the edges of the camp.

However, Fatah Islam fighters fled deeper into the camp
and continue to engage the army in firefights daily.

They have repeatedly ignored calls from the army to surren-
der, and all mediation efforts to end the military standoff have

failed.

The battle to drive the Islamic militants out has led to signif-
icant damage-to parts of the camp, once home to some 30,000
Palestinian refugees. Only a few thousand remain inside, after
most residents fled to the nearby Beddawi refugee camp.

A senior military official said the Lebanese soldier was
killed late Tuesday near the Nahr el-Bared camp by Fatah
Islam snipers inside the settlement.

family — will be complicated
by a delay of up to 20 minutes
in each direction.

The crew's mettle is likely
to be tested with mock emer-
gencies Belakovsky said might
include a radiation scare, a fire
on board or even a death.

The entire structure, private
cabins and bathrooms except-
ed, will be equipped with mul-
tiple cameras constantly mon-
itoring the action — or inaction
— within.

Sound like a reality show?
Belakovsky said the institute
has turned down offers to
make it into one, though a
documentary film is planned.

"It is not a reality show, it is
a serious, pioneering research
experiment," he said.

But with six people cooped
up in close quarters for nearly

a year and a half, sparks are '

likely to fly:

"If you and your girlfriend
were to shut yourselves in a
room for three days, five days,

a month — believe me, you -~
would have a million prob- |
lems. Either she would stran- .
gle you or you would strangle -

her," Belakovsky said.

"We think that in such :

experiments, anything is can
happen," he said.

Finding out just what does
happen is a main purpose of
the project, which Belakovsky
said would provide useful
information about "small-
group psychology."

With an estimated cost of
US$15 million, Mars500 is
being funded largely by the
Russian space agency, Roscos-
mos.

- 2 *# Oe Oe

In addition to the ESA part- *

nership, Belakovsky said, orga-
nizers welcome the participa-
tion of organizations from oth-
er countries — talks have been
held with U.S. apace agency
NASA - and are seeking spon-
SOs.

Applicants to be "human

subjects" for the experiment °
must be college graduates aged |
25 to 50, and must speak Russ- -

ian and English. Doctors, biol-
ogists and engineers are pre-
ferred.

The ESA, mostly accepting
applications from European
countries, is to select two of
the six crew members.

The Russian institute has
received applications from

countries ranging from Arme- |
nia to Australia and Bulgaria ©

to Brazil.

Diversity is key, Belakovsky .

said, "because it is our firm
conviction that it won't be a
Russian crew or an American
crew that travels to Mars, but a

mixed crew representing the *

human race."

at the start of play what course he
will be pursuing at the end. He often
begins with what seems to be a sen-
sible line of play and waits to see
what develops.

Consider this case where South
got to three notrump after West had
overcalled in spades. Declarer won
the spade lead with the king and
could count seven top tricks consist-

ing of a spade, a heart, three dia-

monds and two clubs.
Since he had to score at least one
additional club trick, he led.a club to

the jack at trick two, losing to East’s
queen. South ducked East’s queen-
of-hearts return and won the next
heart with the ace. He then cashed
three club tricks, East and South each
discarding a heart as West parted
with a spade. This was now the posi-
tion, with declarer needing four more
tricks:

#Q10

Gauging the situation perfectly,
declarer cashed the ace and queen of
diamonds, purposely cutting himself
off from dummy’s king, and then
exited with a heart to East’s nine.

East took his two heart tricks,
but had to lead from the J-7 of dia-
monds into dummy’s K-9 at the end,
giving South the contract.

Note that declarer could also
have mdde four tricks in the dia-
grammed position by cashing the Q-
K-A of diamonds and then ducking a
spade to West, endplaying him.
Either way, South was virtually cer-

tain to make the contract, but: he..

~ could hardly have predicted that he
would finish with a choice of end-

plays when the play began: ee

‘No room to squeeze’ on

ahamian proper-

there is little

“room for increases”, the head

of a general insurance carrier

told The Tribune yesterday,

with the high percentage of

personal income devoted to

insurance coverage making it

difficult to “squeeze” further
rate rises from customers.

Patrick Ward, Bahamas

First’s president and chief
executive, said: “My current
reading is that the premiums
are at a level where I don’t per-
sonally see very much room
for [further] increases, given
the overall economic environ-
ment in the Bahamas at this
time.

“As a percentage of house-
hold income, the amount of
insurance for life and non-life
coverage is quite high, and
people have other needs in

THE Bahamian Ship Reg-
istry has again been placed
among the world’s top-ranked
shipping registries for vessel
quality and safety, with less
than 3 per cent of Bahamian
vessels inspected between
2004-2006 detained for failing
in-port inspections.

The Bahamas made the
White List (the highest stan-
dard for port state control) of
the Paris Memorandum of
Understanding (MOU) for
2006, as it had a very low
detention rate for its flagged
vessels.

Out of 3434 Bahamian-
flagged vessels inspected
between 2004 and 2006, only
98 or 2.8 per cent were
detained in port for failing
safety inspections.

Bahamians urged
to push for National
Energy legislation

@ By CARA BRENNEN-
BETHEL
Tribune Business
Reporter

BAHAMIANS were yes-
terday encouraged to seek out
alternative energy sources and
push for the passing of a
National Energy Bill, as the
summer months place a strain
on the Bahamas Electricity
Corporation’s (BEC) power
supply.

Christian Henry, of Cape
Systems (Eleuthera), which is
developing alternative energy
products, told The Tribune that
the easiest way to decrease
pressure on the power supply
is to use less current.

“Customers can take some
immediate steps. Do this by
hanging clothing out to dry
instead of using an electric dry-
er. Do this also by turning off
lights and fans, and setting air
conditioners to only cool, just
enough to stay comfortable,”
he advised.

Other measures included
turning off the water heater
when away from home, or

installing a solar hot water
heater that will pay for itself
in electricity savings within two
years, Mr Henry said.

He also suggested replacing
standard incandescent light
bulbs (that get hot when on)
with compact fluorescent light-
bulbs. These, Mr Henry said,
will pay off their high up-front
cost through electricity savings
in less than a year.

Homeowners should ensure
that their homes are well-insu-
lated to prevent cool air from
leaking out; and prevent sum-
mer heat from penetrating into
the house,” Mr Henry said.

Other measures included
planting shrubs and trees to
shade the walls of the house,
painting the roof and walls
white, choosing light-coloured
roof tiles or metal, or building
a new home by taking these
ideas into consideration.

“For those home or business
owners who might want to do
more than just conserve elec-
tricity, but want to also pro-

SEE page 14

them for specific types of
expenditure.”

Mr Ward said property
insurance prices in the
Bahamian market’ were
already close to their upper
limits, and outside of any gen-
eral increase in household
income, “people will find it
very difficult to carry on” if
there were substantial premi-
um rate increases.

Bahamian general insurance
carriers are thus having to bal-
ance their customers’ need to
keep property insurance pre-
miums affordable, especially

given that this nation is likely
to face a catastrophic event in
the shape of a major hurricane
one every two-three years, with
their requirements to charge
premium rates consistent with
the risk they take.on. Premium
prices that are below the rates
that should be charged leave
general insurance carriers
exposed to potential under-
writing losses.

“There’s a recognition that
prices in the marketplace have
an upper limit, and going
beyond that results in a fall-
off in the amount of take-up,”

Mr Ward said. “I don’t think
anyone is in the business of dri-
ving people out of insurance.”

This, he acknowledged, had
to be balanced with the need
for general insurance carriers
to earn and charge premiums
that were “technically ade-
quate”.

The Bahamian property
insurance market experienced
major premium rate increases
in 2004 and 2005, as the global
reinsurance industry sought to
recoup the massive losses it
suffered in both those years
from devastating storms such

as Charley, Katrina, Rita and
Wilma.

Bahamian general insurance
carriers have relatively smaller
capital bases compared to their
counterparts in many other
countries, in part because the

and retail licensees may seek
pre-paid duty refunds totalling
“millions of dollars” from the
Customs Department, as a
Supreme Court ruling had giv-
en the Home Centre a com-
petitive advantage over its
rivals by allowing it to bring
in its entire inventory bonded.

In that case, Customs was
seeking from the Home Cen-
tre more than $738,000 in
upfront duties as a condition to
permit it to open its new store
- something it has ‘been
blocked from enforcing.

The ruling by Supreme
Court Justice Stephen Isaacs
effectively allows the Home
Centre to bring all the prod-
ucts it is stocking at its West
Atlantic Drive store into
Freeport duty-free, without
having to pre-pay duty on
goods before they are sold.

Yet ail other GBPA
licensees, such as his store,
Dolly Madison, Bellevue Busi-
ness Centre and ‘Bahamas
Copier, are having to pre-pay
custoras duties on the portion
ot imporied: inventory classi-
fied as non-bonded.

This means that Justice

Isaacs’ judgement has major
implication for the way in
which Customs duties - the
Government’s main source of
revenue - is collected in
Freeport, as it opens the way
for all licensees to bring in
their inventory entirely bond-
ed, with no pre-payment of
duty.

The whole controversy sur-
rounding the payment of Cus-
toms duties in Freeport stems
from the fact that the Customs
Management Guide to the
Hawksbill Creek Agreement,
the very foundation on which
the Bahamas’ second city was
built, has never been set in
statute itself.

As a result, all Port Authoti-
ty licensees have developed
their own methods for dealing
with bonded goods and the
issue Of pre-paying and post- :
paying duties to Customs.

Bonded inventory is tax-free
if sold to GBPA licensees for
use in their own businesses.
On post-paid items, the stan-
dard practice that has evolved
is for licensees to go through
with Customs the items that
were sold upon which duty is .
payable, and then submit the
required amount on a certain
date each month:

Customs, though, has fre-
quently sought to clamp down
when it comes to bonded
goods, fearing the Govern-
ment conceded to much in the
Hawksbill Creek Agreement
and that the bond is open to
too much abuse - for example,
inventory brought in as bond-
ed by via Freeport and then
shipped directly to non-GBPA
licensees in Nassau, enabling
businesses to avoid duty pay-
ments.

Yet the courts have fre-
quently slapped Customs
down for exceeding its pow-
ers, or exercising those it does
not have in an arbitrary fash-
ion, when it comes to Freeport
and bonded goods.

Christopher Lowe, the
Grand Bahama Chamber of
Commerce’s president, is
among those who have urged
Customs to go after suspect-
ed individual bond abusers,
rather than attempt to unple-
ment ‘broad brush’ changes
that are then defeated in the
courts.

He and others have repeat-
edly called for Customs and
the Ministry of Finance to sit
down with the licensees and
the GBPA to resolve all the
issues surrounding bonded
goods to the satisfaction of all
concerned.

Beka project has reached in
the government approvals
process, although The Tribune
had been told that the appli-
cations and all associated doc-
uments were about to be
resubmitted imminently.

The Tribune first revealed
the existence of the proposed
Beka project when the Christie
administration was in govern-
ment, but it never went any-
where after a furore over its

‘apparent desire to become ‘the

master planner’ for all Crown
Land in eastern Grand
Bahama, seemingly taking
over all land there.

Concerned

Mr Russell said yesterday
that at the time he was “seri-
ously concerned” about the
Beka project’s intentions and
designs on land in eastern
Grand Bahama. He indicated,
though, that his concerns had
been assuaged by the meeting,
the developers having
explained that the controversy
was caused after one of Beka’s
partner companies, Infinity
Partners, posted incorrect
information on its website.

Mr Russell added that the
initial proposal had involved
Beka seeking an “option to
buy one quarter of the area of
land in eastern Grand
Bahama”.

He said: “In Grand Bahama

any positive developments that
cause our people to be able to
sustain themselves and their
families, whether it’s Fox-
woods, Beka or anyone else.”

The need for sustainable
economic development and
employment in eastern Grand
Bahama, Mr Russell said was
“bad, extremely bad”.

“Most of the people in East
End are fishermen, but there
are no fish around roight now,”
he said. ““They’re having a bad
time living off fish, and need
something to fall back on.

“It would boost the whole
economy of Grand Bahama. I
would like to see the develop-
ment of three economies on
Grand Bahama - East End,
West End and Freeport. If that
happens, Grand Bahama will
be safe for years to come.”

Mr Russell added of Beka
and Foxwoods: “They appear
to be legitimate investors, and
I am sure that when they send
their application in, the Gov-
ernment will do a search on
them to make sure they are fit
and proper people to come
into the Bahamas.”

Foxwoods, has already
signed a non-binding Letter of
Intent to act as the Royal Oasis
resort’s casino operator for
prospective purchaser, Har-
court Developments, although
other things have to fall into
place before the agreement
becomes ‘hard’. The Letter
currently just represents an
agreement in principle.

Foxwoods, as previously
reported by The Tribune, has
always been more interested
in the Beka project.

_ To establish good relations
with the former Christie gov-
ernment and smooth the path
for the Beka project, it was
understood to have indicated
its willingness to help out Har-
court on the Royal Oasis deal,
effectively having communi-
cated: ‘Come and see us when
you’re ready and we will help
you in any way we can’.

China boosts
2006 economic
erowth figure,
says reserves

up to $1.33 tn

@ By JOE McDONALD
AP Business Writer

BEIJING (AP) — China’s
sizzling economy grew even
faster in 2006 than previously
reported, bringing it closer to
overtaking Germany as the
world’s third-biggest, and its
export-fueled foreign reserves
have risen to a new high of
$1.33 trillion, according to offi-
cial figures released yesterday.

The announcements reflect
China’s stunning success but
could fuel fears of overheating
and prompt Beijing to boost
interest rates or tighten eco-
nomic controls to cool the
boom.

The National Bureau of Sta-
tistics raised its estimate of
China’s 2006 growth rate from
10.7 per cent to 11.1 per cent. It
nudged up its estimate of total
output to 21.1 trillion yuan
($2.705 trillion), bringing Chi-
na closer to overtaking Ger-
many as the world’s third-
largest economy after the Unit-
ed States and Japan.

The statistics agency rou-
tinely issues such revisions to
economic growth. rates. But the
latest report could receive spe-
cial attention from Chinese
leaders, who are trying to rein
in a boom that they worry
could ignite a financial crisis.

Chinese leaders want to
maintain fast growth to reduce

poverty but are trying to slow
investment in auto manufac-
turing, real estate and other
areas where supply outstrips
demand. They worry that run-
away spending could ignite
inflation or leave banks and
borrowers with dangerously
high debt levels.

In the most recent official
forecast, the central bank’s
research bureau said last
month the economy was
expected to expand by 10.8 per
cent this year. That was in line
with projections by the World
Bank and other economists,
and would be China’s fifth
straight year of growth in
excess of 10 per cent.

Wednesday’s revision con-
firmed the opinions of foreign
economists who said the earli-
er figure seemed too low, sug-
gesting the economy was slow-
ing despite surging exports and
other indicators.

The change comes amid
reports of double-digit growth
in industrial output, investment
and other economic indicators.

China’s trade surplus soared
to a new monthly high of $26.9
billion in June, the government
reported Tuesday. That was
despite official efforts to nar-
row the ballooning trade gap
by repealing rebates of value-
added taxes on exports.

The flood of export revenues
has forced the central bank to

drain billions of dollars a
month from the economy
through bond sales to reduce
pressure for prices to rise, pil-
ing up the money in United
States Treasurys and other for-
eign securities and helping to
finance Washington’s budget
deficit.

The reserves, already the
world’s largest, rose to $1.33
trillion at the end of June, a
41.6 per cent increase over the
same time last year, the offi-
cial Xinhua News Agency said,
citing the central bank.

The reserves soared by
$266.3 billion in the first six
months of this year, more than
in all of 2006, the bank said.

Beijing is creating a compa-
ny to make more profitable use
of the reserves through com-
mercial investments abroad.
Plans call for the company to
receive an initial injection of
$200 billion in government
money.

The statistics bureau’s brief
announcement said most ofthe
increase in China’s 2006 eco-
nomic output came from sec-
ondary industries, which
includes manufacturing, con-
struction and utilities.

The exact size of China’s
economy is a matter of debate,
with foreign analysts saying the
small statistics agency lacks the
resources to provide more than
a general estimate.

commission that usually ranges
from 15-25 per cent, they take
on no underwriting risk. As a
result, there has. not been as
much capital investment into
the Bahamian general insur-
ance industry.

In turn, this forces Bahamian
carriers to buy huge amounts
of reinsurance to enable them
to take on and cover risks in

this nation.
Dictate

Reinsurers thus largely dic-
tate the property and casualty
premiums rates levied in the
Bahamas, and these were
increased in 2004 and 2005 to
keep them intersted in still cov-

reimburse the massive losses
suffered in those years. Even

though 2006 was largely a cat-
astrophe-free year, losses aris-
ing from man-made or natural
disasters still hit $48 billion, of
which $16 billion was insured.

Mr Ward said yesterday that
maintaining reinsurance cov-
erage for risks in the Bahamas
would only be impacted if
there were a series of large
losses resulting from catastro-
phes elsewhere in the world,
not just in the Bahamas.

“If there’s another hit on the
Bahamas in isolation, I don’t
think it is going to have as
major an impact as a series of
Katrina, Wilma, Rita events,”
he said.

“JT am not sure it would gen-
erate a sufficiently large
enough loss to devastate the
reinsurance world...... But the
combined losses in other parts
[of the world] would defintely
have an impact.”

Settled

Meanwhile, Mr Ward said
Bahamas First had settled on
no method for expanding its
capital base, despite its chair-
man, Ian Fair, writing in the
company’s annual report that it
may have to consider increas-
ing capital to ensure prof-
itability and growth.

“We haven’t ereally fixed
our minds to any form of cap-
ital raising yet,” Mr Ward said.
“It is something we will pay

attention to, and the Board
give consideration to, in the
course of the next few
months.”

Message

He added that Mr Fair’s
statement had been a message
that “if we continue to grow,
this is something we have to
continually review in the light
of the requirements of A. M.
Best, and in light of our
requirements for an acceptable
ratio of capital to net written
premium.”

Bahamas First’s capital base
currently consists of $11 mil-
lion in debt instruments - $5
million in preference shares,
and a $6 million loan from
Bank of Butterfield. On the
loan, Mr Ward said it was an
option “kept open to the end
of the year”.

He added that it was “no
secret” that the business mod-
el Bahamas First was pursu-
ing, and which had influenced
its purchase of Carib Insurance
Agency, was to expand con-
trol of its distribution network
and keep more commission
revenue in-house on the
income statement.:

In this way, Bahamas First
would be able to ‘smooth out’
income fluctuations between
years when hurricanes were
absent, and when they
occurred.

m@ By ANDREW TAYLOR
Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) —
The nation’s budget deficit will
drop to $205 billion in the fiscal
year that ends in September,
less than half of what it was at
its peak in 2004, according to
new White House estimates.

It’s also a gain over the $244
billion predicted by President
Bush in February, but not as
great an improvement as antic-
ipated by other forecasters.

Bush planned to discuss the
figures in an afternoon appear-
ance as the White House’s
Office of Management and
Budget as part of its midyear
update of the budget picture.

The deficit last year was
$248 billion and has closed in
recent years due to impressive
revenue growth from the
healthy economy. Bush and
Democrats in Congress have
both promised to erase the
deficit by 2012, though they
have greatly divergent views
on how to achieve the goal,
with Bush and Republicans
insisting on extension of his
2001 and 2003 tax cuts when
they expire at the end of 2010.

The latest figure is in gener-
ally in line with expectations,
as the early quarters of the
2007 fiscal year that began in
October had shown continued
revenue improvements. But
the pace of such revenue
growth has slowed more
recently, according to the Con-
gressional Budget Office.

CBO, which makes budget
predictions for Congress, has
estimated the deficit for the
ongoing budget year will range
from $150-200 billion.

The deficit peaked at $413
billion in 2004, though econo-
mists say the best way to mea-
sure the deficit is in relation to
the size of the economy. By
that standard, the current
deficit, at 1.5 per cent of gross
domestic product, is the lowest

‘since 2002.

Despite the improvements,
the deficit picture remains
worse than when Bush took
office six years ago. Then, both
White House and congres-
sional forecasters projected
cumulative surpluses of $5.6
trillion over the subsequent
decade.

But a revenue bubble burst,
a recession and the September

11, 2001, terrorist attacks
adversely affected the books.
Several rounds of tax cuts,
including Bush’s signature
$1.35 trillion 2001 tax cut, also
contributed to the return to
deficits in 2002 after four years
of budget surpluses.

“Nothing in the administra-
tion’s deficit announcement
changes the failed fiscal record
of President Bush,” said Senate
Budget Committee Chairman
Kent Conrad, D-N.D. “He has
increased spending by nearly
50 per cent since taking office,
while at the same time repeat-
edly cutting taxes primarily on
the wealthiest.”

Did you know that in 1998, a pound of roast beef recorded an average price
of 3.31? Today, nine years later, that very same item costs an average of
$4.00, an increase of 20.85 percent.

_Did you also know that a 31b bag of onions in 1970 cost 0.78 cent? In 2007,
consumers are required to pay an average price of $3.04 - an increase of
289.74 percent! More recently, an escalating trend in the average price of
a 3lb bag of onions has been noted for the last 3 years.

greenhouse gas footprint, there
are a few options,” Mr Henry
said.

“First, they should write a
letter this week to two people -
their local member of parlia-
ment, and also the Minister of
Works, Earl Deveaux, on JFK
Drive - indicating their sup-
port for a new national energy
policy, which is currently being
drafted as legislation to revise
the 1950s era laws now in
effect.”

He added that the letter
should specifically request a
policy that allows for grid-con-
nected, renewable energy gen-
eration by customers, with a
fair buy-back of electricity
from customers.

“This would mean that any
homeowner could legally

install solar panels at their
home, have their system
inspected by licensed electri-
cians and BEC, and both sell
electricity to BEC during the
day (when the home is mak-
ing excess solar electricity), and
also buy back electricity from
BEC at night (when the home
is not producing its own elec-
tricity),” he said.

Mr Henry pointed out that
this wouldn't keep the home
running during power outages,
unless the homeowner also
invested in a large battery bank
or back-up generator, nor
would this group of customers
make up more than about 2
per cent of the total electricity

“It is a step toward keeping
some of the money that the
working people of the
Bahamas earn from leaving the
country to buy diesel to burn
for electricity,” Mr Henry said.

“Second, they can write a

Mr Sanderman said the
Bahamas Maritime Authority
was committed to enforcing
the highest quality standards
in its fleet.

Despite the ranking, he said
it was not leaving anything to
chance, and will continue to
enforce high standards.

Ricardo Delaney, the

BMA’s ship inspector sta-
tioned between Nassau and
Grand Bahama, added that the
MOUs provide a yardstick for
the quality that ships coming
into international ports should
have. ;
He explained that there
were a number of safety,
health and structural qualifi-

not only to protect the crew,
but the residents of the ports
they are entering.

Mr Henry explained that
renewable electricity made
directly from wind and
sun is often used in the same
place that it is made, so less is
wasted by moving the electric-

“But the most efficient and
cost-effective renewable ener-
gy systems, those without bat-
tery back-up, depend on a reli-
able current from the grid to
be up and running so they can
operate,” Mr Henry said.

“As a safety precaution, our
solar panels do not send out
electricity ont o the grid when
there is a general power out-
age, so linemen fixing the
problem are protected.”

THE TRIBUNE





Ex-Bahamas firm owner
makes $2.4m settlement

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

he former co-own-
er of a Bahamas-
based financial ser-
vices provider has
agreed to hand over $2.4 mil-
lion in assets to settle an invol-
untary bankruptcy petition
brought against him by the
president of an investment
fund that collapsed owing
investors some $214 million.
‘Jon Knight, who was well-
known in the Bahamas as a
shareholder and co-owner of
International Portfolio Ana-
lytics IPA), has agreed to sign
over four properties, a horse
farm and 30-foot boat that he
owns to Bill Cuthill, former

. trustee for bankrupt invest-

ment fund, Evergreen Security.

In a statement, Mr Cuthill
said the settlement was related
to a court-approved involun-
tary bankruptcy petition that
he had filed against Mr Knight
in a bid to collect and enforce a
judgement against him.

He added: “Mr Knight has
agreed to deed over two hous-
es in Florida, two, houses in
Georgia, a horse farm in Geor-
gia and a 30-foot boat. These
have a fair market value of $2.4
million.”

The settlement had been
approved by both the steering
committee representing Ever-
green’s creditors and the US
District Court for the Middle
District of Florida, and both
the properties and boat are
due to be sold to realise sums
for the fund’s investors within
the coming months.

Mr Cuthill, though, said he
was “vigorously pursuing col-
lection” from Anthony Hug-
gins, Mr Knight’s fellow co-
owner and shareholder in
Bahamian-incorporated IPA.

In response to litigation filed
against Mr Huggins, Mr Knight
and another company they
controlled, a Bahamian-incor-
porated International Business
Company (IBC) called Matae-
ka Ltd, the US court ordered
that they pay $7.9 million to
Evergreen plus post-judgement
interest. A further $2.5 million
judgement against IPA’s par-
ent firm, Atlantic Portfolio
Analytics and Management
(APAM), was also entered by
the court, bringing the total
damages awarded to $10.4 mil-
lion.

Meanwhile, Mr Cuthill said

he had also received $1.1 mil-
lion from Gray Robinson, the
US law firm representing Mr
Huggins, which transferred to
him funds it was holding on
Huggins’ behalf for the benefit
of Mataeka.

Mr Cuthill had previously
filed a lawsuit against Gray
Robinson, alleging that Matae-
ka, the Bahamian IBC, had
transferred $1.54 million to the
US law firm on November 27,
2002, to be held in trust in a
segregated account to cover
Huggins’ legal expenses relat-
ing to the Evergreen case.

The remaining $1.1 million
balance was paid to Mr Cuthill,
and he is now seeking some
$510,169 in legal fees and
expenses from those trust
funds, which were disbursed to
cover Huggins’ legal fees.

Mr Cuthill explained that he
had “filed suit against Gray
Robinson for paying over
$500,000 in fees to themselves
with money held in trust for
Mr Huggins for the benefit of
Mataeka. A trial date has not
been set, but should be later
this summer or the fall”.

He added that he had “filed
a motion for sanctions against
Gray Robinson and Peter
Ginsberg, Knight’s counsel, for
over $540,000. This motion
should be heard this summer”.

“The involuntary bankrupt-

Mr Knight and APAM are still

Knight has settled with the

but may have one or two law-
suits to recover fees paid to

Huggins and Mr Knight in
their criminal trials,” Mr
Cuthill said.

Mr Knight had previously
pled guilty to grand larceny

case.

Although neither served jail
time, they did serve probation
and were fined.

The Manhattan District
Court lawsuit had alleged that
in late 1997 that the IPA duo
took a $6.5 million loan from
Evergreen, “ostensibly in part
to pay off an earlier $2 million
loan”. ;

The $6.5 million was then
allegedly transferred to Matae-
ka Ltd, which was “wholly-
owned” by Huggins and
Knight, and described as 4
“Bahamian-based holding
company that had no assets
and no real business interests”,

The indictment alleged:
“The defendants used Matae-
ka Ltd as a conduit to pay off
the earlier $2 million, and
channelled the remaining $4
million to other entities, keep-
ing $500,000 for themselves.

“The defendants used
Mateaka to pay back the orig-
inal $2 million loan to Ever-
green from the $6.5 million
that Evergreen lent out, kept
$500,000 for themselves and
transferred $400,000 to Amer-
ican Bond Partners (ABP):
ABP, an Orlando, Florida-
based financial services admin-
istrative company, was oper-
ated [by Mr Boyd and Mr
Spencer]; the money was used
to buy. a corporate jet [fox
them].”

Huggins and Knight alleged!
ly then transferred $3.6 million
from the $6.5 million loan to
Perdido PCS Servicios, a Cos-
ta-Rican shell firm.

The Manhattan District
Attorney’s office added: “Ulti-
mately, because of the terms
of a buy back agreement
signed by the Evergreen
trustees, Evergreen had to for- ©
give Mataeka’s obligations to

_ repay $4 million of the $6. 5

million loan.”

singing a chorus, while the parishioners applauded
their entrance.

Each mother in the congregation received a gift
and left with a smile. Evangelist Sharon Stuart
preached an encouraging message.

he Valley was the place to be this

past weekend when members of

St George’s Anglican Church

hosted their annual “Thrill of the
Grill and Mini Fair”.

Persons came from all around to support
the major fund raising event of the parish. In
addition to the great steaks and chicken
_ which were on the grill, supporters were able
to feast on native dishes of every type, drink
to their hearts delight and participate in
good clean fun.

One of the highlight of the day was the
dunking tank which saw Father Kirkland
Russell, assistant priest of St George’s,
among others, dunked time and time again
by parishioners, including his own wife,
Jacquelyn Russell.

The day ended with a Junkanoo rushout
by the world famous Valley Boys. Radio
personalities from Love 97, Joy FM and 100

Church family to host sixth annual ‘GIRL:FRIEND’ Conference

WOMEN, it’s time to get real. It’s
time to put the brakes on “church as
usual” and deal with the real issues
we face in our daily lives.

Elder Vernita Josey and the family
of the Commonwealth Baptist
Church are helping Bahamian
women get to this realization with
their upcoming conference. The 6th
annual “GIRL:FRIEND”
Conference runs Wednesday, July 18
to Friday, July 20 at the church in
Elizabeth Estates at 7:30pm nightly.

’ GIRL:FRIEND, an acronym for
“get it real ladies”, tackles issues
related to family, relationships, inde-
pendence, enemies, needs and don'ts.

The conference will also look at help-
ing women understand how biblical
teaching can be applied to each area
of their lives, said Linda Gibson,
assistant co-ordinator of the confer-
ence.

And who better to get this message
across than women. The speakers for
this year’s conference are: Dolly
King, pastor of Hosannah Baptist
Church; Miriam Emmanuel, pastor
of Good Samaritan Kingdom
Ministries; and Elder Vernita Josey,

host of the conference. Each speaker |

is free to tackle any of the issues that
make up the GIJRL:FRIEND
acronym.

“The purpose of this conference is
to help women reach their full poten-
tial in God. We as women have
church down-pat, but when we go out
into our regular lives, do we really
have the information we need?” Ms
Gibson told Tribune Religion.

“The enemy comes in all of these
areas we are talking about in this con-
ference. We’re always dealing with
relationship issues. We’re always
dealing with enemies. So this confer-
ence is helping women to know how
to deal with everything they face in
life,” she added.

The GIRL:FRIEND conference
got started six years ago after Bishop

°° 4.7

Arnold Josey, pastor of
Commonwealth Baptist, developed
the HIM (Health, Image, Manhood)
Conference for men. It was then that
he realized that women also needed a
conference focused on the issues that
they face daily. The goal is to get to
the core of these issues and teach
women how to approach them in a

The cost of freedom

@ By CLEMENT JOHNSON

n Tuesday we cele-

brated 34 years of

independence in the

Bahamas. On that day
we commemorated our freedom,
and we celebrated our nations
birthday. For a moment, let's look
at that freedom and its cost.

Freedom is not a gift, it is some-
thing that is both a challenge and a
responsibility. Freedom is not
licence, we are not free to do what-
ever we wish for freedom requires
that we exercise it responsibly.
That's why the readings within the
Christian Church this past week-
end were most appropriate, it was
the one where Jesus sent 72 disci-
ples out two-by-two. They were to
support each other, to be of use to
each other, to carry the Good
News. Freedom is like that - we
exercise it best when we consider
the other, when we look to what
will benefit all rather than just one.

Our nation 34 years later is both
complex and confusing. It is com-
plex because there are so many
conflicting voices demanding to be
heard, each claiming to present a
truth, each claiming to have a valid
claim on the public's ear, each
espousing a position that seems to
be politically correct. It is confus-
ing because some of these voices
seem to be asking for what is not
Christian, what is not conducive to
the good of the whole. And, yet,
there seems be an underlying
assumption that what is politically
correct must also be good.

“You and I must stand up for

-what is right, we must stand for
freedom against licence. We can-
not be supportive of what only
appears to be fair in our eyes, but
must remember that to be truly
Christian, to be what God calls us
to be, we must take up the battle
for freedom. The cost, if we do not,
is our very souls.

How do we do that? First, let our
votes speak of our commitment to
being Christians who follow
Christ. Let our voices speak out
against injustice where it is found
while speaking the truth to all who
are seeking it. Put your money
where your faith is. We must stand
up to our politicians and tell them
what is wrong morally and ethical-
ly, because most of them talk a
good talk but live and walk a dif-
ferent walk. Like Pastor Myles
Munroe said in his address at the
Independence service on Sunday,

we even need to be careful of what
our children read in their text
books in school because there are
many subtle messages that go
against Christian teachings.

We as Christian must always be
careful to be in the world but not
of the world, that's why it’s impor-
tant for Church leaders not to sell
themselves to-the politicians for a
few pounds or a favour. The gospel
of Christ often times is diametri-
cally opposed to what the world
teaches. While we are not called to
put our lives on the line, we must
remember that our spiritual life is
on the line. Satan's forces are not
content to let things be. The ser-
pents and the demons are, indeed,
subject to us. Through the name of
Jesus we have the power to subdue
them.

A few years ago a few coura-
geous men and women saw the
need to petition for our country to
become an independent nation.

‘They did what they did because of

their love for the Bahamas and its
people. Let us not surrender that
gift and become dependent upon
those who do not trust in the
gospel. Rather, let us "take up
arms and by opposing, end" this
cry for licence.

Freedom carries a responsibility
with it. Let us be responsible citi-
zens, responsible Christians,
responsible to God. Let us look to
our God and seek his guidance.
Let us take up the mantle to look
after our aged, our young, the dis-
enfranchised, those who have no
voice, the PLP's the FNMs for we
are all God’s children. The politi-
cians strive to divide our nation for
their own purposes, but the mes-
sage this week is we are all one
people, “Bahamians” for all of us
serve one God. So we must be like
our fore fathers - to always follow
your dream and be like the 72 dis-
ciples who worked for all mankind.

Our song must be the one by
Isaac Watts, as we move from
strength to strength in our
Bahama-land.

Our God, our help in ages past,
Our hope for years to come,
Our shelter from the

stormy blast,

And our eternal home

Our God, our help in ages past,
Our hope for years to come,

Be thou our guard while
troubles last,

And our eternal home

GCMI celebrating 20 years

of ministry and service

reat Commission
Ministries International
(GCMI) is celebrating 20
years of service and min-
istry to the people of the Bahamas.

A non-profit global non-govern-
ment organisation focused on bring-
ing reconciliation, restoration and
hope to persons affected by poverty,
crime, drug abuse and broken rela-
tionships, the ministry was founded
in 1987 by Bishop Walter S Hanchell
to assist the poor, needy, homeless
and hurting.

In celebration of 20 years of serv-

‘ice, GCMI, with headquarters on
Wulff Road, is organising a Heroes
Ball in November to honour some of
the unsung heroes who have played a
pivotal role in our nation’s develop-
ment. ,

“The greatness of a nation is never
measured by its commercial develop-
ment or how much wealth it amasses,
but by how that nation treats its poor.
Too many persons and businesses
have ignored the plight of the less
fortunate among us or have not done
their best in fighting poverty. It is the
right of each citizen to have the basic
necessities of life,” said Bishop
Hanchell.

Continuing its fight for the rights of
the poor and children, GCMI has
begun construction on. Carmichael
Road of a 70 bed state-of-the-art
facility for homeless persons. The
building is still at the foundation
stage and approximately $700,000 is
needed to complete construction.
Donations of labour aid building
materials are urgently needed to
complete this much needed facility,
which will ease the burden of many
homeless persons in the community.

GCMI is appealing to the business
community, churches, and caring citi-
zens to join in the fight to uplift the
poor and reduce the level of crime
and lawlessness in the Bahamas.
Donors are welcome to tour the min-
istry’s facilities and to become volun-
teers in reaching out to the hurting
throughout our nation.

Ongoing outreach efforts provided
by the ministry include the operation
of homeless shelters for men, women
and children,.a food bank that dis-
tributes grocery to needy families and
a feeding centre that provides daily
meals for the poor and elderly.

‘In all thy getting’

@ By PASTOR MATTHEW K ALLEN



Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wis-
dom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
— (Proverbs 4:7)

f there was éver a time the body of Christ

needed wisdom that time is now; to be a real

man or father in this day and time one needs

the spirit of wisdom to lead and guide him.
Getting wisdom is the most important thing we can
do as men, after which we must get a good under-
standing of how to apply this wisdom. There have
been great men throughout history who have had
wisdom or insight into matters or inventions that
could have made an everlasting impact on the
world.

As we live today all of us can attest to the fact
that at one time or another we knew someone who
said the right thing at the wrong time and got a neg-
ative result. Then we ask the question, “what hap-
pened or where did they go wrong?” This is a clas-
sic case of wisdom without understanding.

The word wisdom in the Hebrew (Proverbs 4:7)
is: chokmah, khok-maw'; which means to operate in
a good sense; to be skillful.

The importance of wisdom and understanding

Watch this! Here is a soldier that has been skill-
fully trained to use a particular weapon or device
on the battle field against the enemy at a set time;
but he/shé used the weapon or device prematurely
and got a negative result.

‘It The enemy is now alert and aware of the
weapon and position of the soldier, therefore he
(the enemy) can make the necessary adjustments
and defence.

2 The premature use of the weapon or device by
the solider can also result in his/her comrades being
injured or even killed (friendly fire).

As leaders in the body of Christ and throughout

the government struc-
ture of this country we
need wisdom and
understanding.

According to James
3:15; There are two
types of wisdom

e From above

e Earthly wisdom

In most cases
because we are of an
earthly mind-set, the
use of our earthly wis-
dom brings about bit-
terness, envy and
strife. It's the use. of
this sort of wisdom that
has brought about such
division and _ strife
within the body of
Christ. It's the use of
this sort of wisdom that
opens the door to every evil work in this country.

The high crimes and other wicked behaviour that
has consumed this country are a clear indication
that we as a people are a more insane nation rather
than a Christian nation. The definition of insanity
is: doing the same thing over and over and expect-
ing a different result. This is exactly how we've
been operating here in the Bahamas for years, then
we get defensive and offended when our method of
operation comes under scrutiny because we really
can't handle the truth.

We've became proficient at applying the band
aid solution to the shot gun wounds in many areas
of our lives and society. No lasting, positive change
will take place until we are ready to face and deal
with the truth which is; we've strayed far away
from Jehovah God, we've got all the forms of
Godliness, but we deny His power.

The criminal elements that are lording over this
country are forever being talked about; we cry out

@ MATTHEW ALLEN



and sound the alarm at the murder rate and other
crimes of which most of our young black men are ©
placed before the courts for and rightfully so. But
there is another level of crime that has existed for
years and which we continue to remain silent
about; the many well dressed, well spoken crimi-
nals that sit in their offices and use their pens and
computers to rape, rob and climb the ladder of suc-
cess, rather than the guns and other weapons most
of our young men of the streets use. These wicked,
sophisticated criminals can be found in various sec-
tors of our country (religious, government, civic,
etc).

It is often said that justice is blind, which implies
that it. applies to everyone. I'm of the view that jus-
tice has regained her sight and those who have the
responsibility to execute justice allow her to see
whom they want her to see. We can no longer lean
on our own way of doing thing, but in all of our
ways we need to truly acknowledge Jehovah
Yahweh.

Proverbs 14:12 says; There is a way which
seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the
ways of death.

I thank God for the educated, qualified profes-
sionals that we've got throughout this country, but
what we need is God's wisdom to bring this nation
back on track.

Religious, government and civic leaders here's
what God is saying to you: If any of you lack wis-
dom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men lib-

_ erally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him

(James 1:5).

Changing a nation

@ By REV ANGELA
BOSFIELD PALACIOUS

everal years ago, I
heard Audrey
Ingraham Roberts
speak on ways to
address and change a con-

text. Once there is a broader |

understanding of a desired
future in a business, for
example, it is necessary to
bring various sections of the
company to own the vision.

Often,. well-meaning persons ©

with well-intentioned actions
have laboured to effect
change for years with no
appreciable improvement.
All too often it is because
there is no exchange between
the various levels.

The term used is to train a
“critical mass”, who in turn

influence their peers, and.

others under their supervi-
sion. If a school were to seek
to motivate the student body
to support a particular pro-
gramme or policy, it would
be more effective to listen to
the input of persons at vari-

ous levels, and then decide to.

train a small group at each
level.

Ifa small group of students
from each grade, along witha
number of teachers
administrators are intro-
duced to the new approach,
and are able to endorse the
position + wholeheartedly,
they. become the “yeast in
the dough”. Their job is to
pass the information along,
keep the momentum going
after motivation strategies
are applied.

Ina family where there is a
need to suppress delinquency
and rebelliousness; it often
helps to discover the special
gift of each child and to des-
ignate tasks that build self
esteem, promote team spirit,
and advance the cause of the
family’s goals. The context
will change as each person is
made to feel appreciated and
heard. The ,allocation of
duties according. to ability,
rather than age or gender,
goes a long way to promote a
higher level of satisfaction.

This, of course, requires

reflection about the present,

and



@ ANGELA PALACIOUS

a review of past accomplish-
ments, and a plan for future
growth. Hence reflection and

action, evaluation and
growth are patterns that are
required in every context.

Churches have been
known to flourish when
authority. for ministry is
shared among all of the peo-
ple according to God-given
gifts. Perhaps members
become~ idle and critical

when allowed to be a specta-

tor. Drawing people into a
position of leadership, or
shared responsibility may be
referred to in some quarters
as “divide and rule”, but God
has ordained it that we devel-
op each person’s capacity for
leadership and self-direction
at different levels.

As we contemplate the
future direction for our coun-
try, we may benefit from this
understanding of participa-
tion. When we share the
common vision, work to
obtain common goals and
objectives, and identify our-
selves as a valuable member |
on the team, making an
important contribution, we
are less likely to feel the need
to sabotage the effort.

Pray for us to allow God to
guide and direct our every
decision.



@ By Universal Truth Ministries



THE Universal Truth Ministries
(UTM) teaches practical Christianity.
We believe that the bible is applica-
ble to daily life in every age, and we
use it as a practical guidebook to
daily living right now.

The bible is filled with easily usable
advice or instructions as to how to
live in this world, and to make the
trip a good one. We use the teachings
of the bible writers as a road map to
the better life. Today, I would like to
consider the prophet's instruction to
“write the vision and make it plain.”

It is well known that people who
have goals and who write them down
have a 50 per cent better chance of
achieving them than people who do
not. Why is this? Could it be that
since God responds to the desires of
our hearts, when we take the time to
write them down, we activate the
promise of God by taking a definite

- Let’s

step toward fulfilling that desire?

It has been said that God helps
those who help themselves; or, faith
without works is dead. Putting your
dream in writing is a definite, practi-
cal step - or work - toward bringing it
to fruition. When you write, you have
to think about what you are writing,
which means that you are developing
your ideas as you write. You begin to
add details and to see the thing in its
completed state. The more you write,
the more real that dream becomes to
you. And when it becomes real to
you, it begins to manifest in your life.

When you have a dream or vision,
there is a period during which you
nurture and protect that vision; you
hold it close to your heart before you
share it with anyone. This is the time
that you write. | recommend that you
write as often as possible.

I have found journaling to be an
extremely useful tool in my walk. It
provides a way to develop your

Talk -

thoughts and ideas and it also pro-
vides a yardstick by which to measure
your progress, which is yet another
benefit of writing the vision down.
You can go back to what you wrote
and see how much you have accom-
plished toward it. It reminds you of
where you originally said you wanted
to go, lets you know if you may have
gone a little off course and have some
corrections to make. Maybe you want
to make some adjustments to your
original goal because it no longer
suits your consciousness. Perhaps you
have achieved it but you forgot you
wanted to do it. In this way, journal-
ing serves as an encouragement.

Sometimes you may feel that you
just are not getting anywhere or
doing anything worthwhile in life. A
quick read through your journal can
show you that you have done some
things to be proud of and encourage
you to set some more goals and do
some more great things.

I've read some of my old journals
and asked myself “what were you
thinking?” I've also seen instances
where I wrote the vision for the first
time on one day and in my next entry
I'm reporting the manifestation of it.
There are also of course some that I
am still working on, but the impor-
tant thing here is that when you write
it down, you can keep it always
before you as a reminder that you are
someone important with somewhere
important to go. It works - if you
work it.

Police ‘committed
to providing
information on
significant crimes’

@ By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter

SENIOR police officers
assured the public yesterday
that they are committed to pro-
viding information about all sig-
nificant crimes.

Speaking with The Tribune
after the publication of an arti-
cle — in which a source claimed
police were trying to keep infor-
mation about a serious incident
"from getting out" — Chief Supt
Glenn Miller and police press
liaison officer Walter Evans
strongly denied that this was the
case. '

"Why would we not want
people to know about that inci-
dent?" Mr Miller asked.

Asst Supt Evans said that, on
the contrary, the police are
transparent in their actions,
have an “open door policy"
with the press, and believe they
have a responsibility to bring
matters to public attention.

about the incident which took
place last week Thursday, ASP

Men held
after cocaine
discovery

denied bail

TWO French-Canadian men
charged in connection with the
seizure of an estimated $3 mil-
lion worth of cocaine were
denied bail yesterday.

The drugs — 226 pounds of
cocaine — were reportedly dis-
covered on board a 42-foot sail-
boat off the coast of Eleuthera
by Drug Enforcement Unit offi-
cers more than a week ago.

Jean Pierre Gagnon, 61, and
Jean Claude Guindon, 57, both
of Quebec, Canada have been
charged with conspiracy to pos-
sess, conspiracy to import with
the intent to supply as well as
possession with the intent to
supply, in relation to the seizure.

It is alleged that the men con-
spired to import and possess the
cocaine sometime between Jan-
uary 2002 and June 2007.

It was further alleged that the
two men, being concerned
together and with others,
between Thursday, June 28, and
Friday, June 29, imported
cocaine with intent to supply
and were found in possession
of a quantity of cocaine.

Both men have pleaded not
guilty to all charges.

The men appeared before
Magistrate Carolita Bethel at
court eight in Bank Lane yes-
terday for a bail hearing and
were denied bail. Prosecutors
claimed that the were flight
risks.

The matter has now been
adjourned to December 12.

Reward is
offered after
dalmatian
goes missing

FREEPORT -_ Grand
Bahama’s famous Dalmatian,
Dottie, who was featured as the
. main character of two books, is
“lost. ,

A reward is being offered for
her safe return.

The public is being asked to
help in locating Dottie.

She was last seen in the vicin-
ity of City Markets (Winn Dix-
ie, Lucaya) on Seahorse Road
on Thursday, July 5.

Local Author Carol Hughes
is the dog’s owner. She had writ-
ten two books, ‘Who Let the
Dog Out?’ and ‘Feeling Hot,
Hot, Hot’.

Anyone who has seen Dottie
or has information about her is
asked to call 373-6977, 727-0551,
or 646-4874.

Vote held to
determine
airport union
leadership

A DISPUTE between the
leadership and two executives
of the Airport Airline and
Allied Workers Union has led
to a special vote to determine
who will lead the union.

Reports indicate that Nere-
lene Harding, the president of
the union, secretary general
Anthony Bain and treasurer
Susan Palmer have been at odds
since January, and no longer
have a working relationship.

Last night’s vote — which was
ongoing at press time — will
determine the officers that stay
on and who will be removed,
thus allowing the union to move
forward.

Ms Harding told The Tribune
that the members of the union
called the meeting, and it is they
who will decide its future.

The contracts between the
Bahamasair, Nassau Flight Ser-
vices and the AAAWU expire
in 2009, and Ms Harding said
that with proposals for new con-
tracts needing to be submitted
six months before the deadline,
she is keen to return her focus
back to the work of the union.

The next scheduled election
for the union was not supposed
to be until June 2009.

Tribune Staff Reporter

THE Ministry of Lands and
Local Government has issued
an apology to the Price Busters
retail chain for publicly identi-
fying the company in connec-
tion with the sale of counter-
feit Colgate toothpaste.

The apology was issued yes-
terday in a press release after
the president of the retail chain,
Craig Walkine, questioned the
ministry for identifying his com-
pany.

The ministry, the statement
reads, “apologises to Price
Busters for this slippage and
error and assures the general
public that Price Busters, as a
good corporate citizen, was and
is in no way engaged in any
activity wherein they knowing-
ly offer adverse products to the
public for their consumption or
usage.

“We therefore take full
advantage of this opportunity
to encourage the management
of Price Busters to continue
their entrepreneurship and
encourage the support of
Bahamian consumers in ensur-

for Price Busters gaffe

Statement issued over toothpaste warning

ing the success of that estab-
lishment,” the statement said.

Price Buster was identified
on July 4, after having been
found carrying the toothpaste
labelled ‘Made in South Africa’,
which reportedly contains low
levels of Diethylene glycol — an
ingredient used in anti-freeze.

Mr Walkine said that his
company had removed coun-
terfeit toothpaste in late June
based on a recall in the US by
the Food and Drug Adminis-
tration. And, he said, when local
authorities informed the com-
pany that additional types of
Colgate toothpaste were also
suspected to be counterfeit, they
were removed immediately.

In explaining the ministry’s
decision to apologise, deputy
permanent secretary Alphaues
Forbes said ihat Price Busters
has faced claims for refunds by
people who did not buy the
counterfeit product from them.

And, when companies are
named publicly, he continued, it
can jeopardise the livelihood of

scores of Bahamians in all levels
of the business if there is a pan-
ic resulting from unproved
claims about the recalled prod-
uct.

Mr Forbes also acknowl-
edged that as a result of his
ministry’s checks of other ven-
dors since this story broke in
The Tribune, a wholesaler was
found with counterfeit tooth-
paste made in China, which has
since been seized, and is being
tested by the ministry.

At this stage, however, Mr
Forbes said that it is unclear if
the toothpaste contains either
the anti-freeze ingredient or
high levels of harmful bacteria —
as was discovered in Canada.

“We have to now go and test
the product that we found to
make sure that it contains this
substance,” he said.

Mr Forbes added that his
ministry will report the findings
of their testing to the public
when it is completed, and that
checks for the counterfeit
toothpaste are still ongoing.

Industrial agreement signed at Morton Salt

Morton Bahamas has signed
a new five year industrial
agreement with Bahamas
Industrial Manufacturers and
Allied Workers Union, it was
announced yesterday.

The Inagua based company
and union have finally agreed
on terms for a contract, bring-
ing an end to two years of con-
frontation and bad blood.

Glenn Bannister, managing

director of Morton Bahamas, ©

and union officials signed the
contract at the Ministry of
Labour and Maritime Affairs
yesterday.

Mr Bannister said it was a
pleasure for him to be there
and sign the agreement after
“two years of arduous, and
painstaking negotiations.”

“T would like to say thank
you to the union, the president,
his members and officers and
we look forward to working
together to keep Morton
Bahamas Ltd in Inagua a sol-
vent and productive compa-
ny,” he said.

“After all, the biggest chal-
lenge to the company is the
global competition in the mar-
ket place. We must work
together to keep the company
productive and profitable. I
look forward in the future to
working very closely with the
union in accomplishing this
goal,” Mr Bannister said.

Wilfred Seymour, president
of the Bahamas Industrial
Manufacturers and Allied
Workers Union, said that the
union strongly believes that in

Hi MORTON Salt and union officials at the signing

order for the agreement to
work, there must be equal
respect from both sides.

“We invite management to
use this signing as a new begin-

ning in. the relationship:

between the union, the bar-
gaining unit, members ‘and
employer,” he said.

Obie Ferguson, lawyer for
the union, outlined what he
said were improvements in the
new agreement, including:

e A total wage increase for a
five-year period of 20.3 per
cent including back pay.

e Article 35, which pertains
to allowances, states that acting
pay is to be 40 per cent of the
differential between the
employee’s current rate of pay
and the employees rate of pay
for whom he or she is standing
in for, for all hours worked

e In the same article, respon-
sibility pay is to be 70 per cent
of the differential between the



OW



employee’s current rate of pay
and the employee’s rate of pay
for whom the employee is
replacing for all hours worked

e According to Article 22,
which deals with industrial
accident leave, employees will
be able to get paid time off to
see a physician. .

e Under article 28, should a
holiday occur during an
employee’s week of vacation,
an additional day with pay will
be added to their vacation

Mr Ferguson said that the
meetings held were respectful,
even though at times it was a
“little rough.”

Thelma Beneby, permanent
secretary in the Ministry of
Maritime Affairs and Labour,
speaking on behalf of the Min-
ister Dion Foulkes, congratu-
lated all parties for demon-
strating once again that dia-
logue is the key to lasting
peace and prosperity for all

Professional terrorists

A CHILL went down the spine of the
world when it was discovered that many of
the bomb plotters who mercifully failed in
the recent car bomb attempts in London and
Glasgow were doctors. The basic tenet of
the medical profession going back to the
times of ancient Greece is “do no harm.”
One cannot but sympathize with Dr. Khaled
Hamid in St. Louis when he said: “I felt sick.
The idéa that a physician would participate
in that is incomprehensible to me. We're
hurt as Muslims and as physicians who
believe sacred life must be protected.”

I also heard voices saying that this proves
that poverty, repression, and lack of political
and human rights has nothing to do with the
making of a terrorist. These people were
middle-class professionals, many of whom
had met in Cambridge, England, living in a
free and open society.

They were in no way poor, downtrodden,
or politically repressed.

I believe this to be a basic misunderstand-
ing of not only the rising phenomenon of
Islamic extremism, but the very nature of
political, social, and revolutionary move-
ments in general.

In any militant cause the leaders and
activists are usually better educated and bet-
ter off financially than the mass of people
they claim to represent.

Revolutionaries like to call them the van-
guard.

The famous British traitors of the Cold
War, many of whom met at Cambridge Uni-
versity, joined the Communists not because
they themselves were oppressed by capital-
ism. But they were deeply affected by what
they saw as the great inequalities in Western
democracies that the Great Depression of
the 1930s intensified.

Many of the early leaders of Irish resis-
tance to British rule were Protestants rather
than part of the majority Catholic popula-
tion. Why? Because Protestants were allowed
more participation in British political pro-
fessional life than were Catholics, and were
therefore in a better position to effectively
organize for the Irish cause. The early Bol-
sheviks were seldom from the peasant or
worker classes.

Many terrorists, revolutionaries, and mass-
movement leaders have been professionals.
Mahatma Gandhi, although he dressed in
peasant clothes, was a lawyer. Yasser Arafat
was an engineer. Che Guevara was trained as
a doctor.

Al Qaeda, is a doctor.

Bin Laden himself was a successful busi-
nessman from a rich Saudi family.

When you are on the bottom rung of soci-
ety you are not in a position to do much
more than survive. But if you are educated
and able to look around, you can relate to
the poverty and oppression of your particu-
lar group, even if you are not yourself poor
and oppressed.

Most Muslims in Europe are as horrified
and disturbed by terrorism as the Christian
majority.

But many, even those born in Europe, find
themselves in a half and half world where
they are no longer Asians, Middle Eastern-
ers, or North Africans, but not quite accept-
ed as Frenchmen, Germans, or British. Many
Muslims in Western Europe live in compar-
ative poverty to the general population, and
unemployment is widespread.

The more education young Muslims get
the more they begin to notice that all is not
well in the greater Muslim world. They see
that many of their coreligionists in Europe
are on the lowest economic levels, and every
time they turn on a television set Muslims in
Muslim lands somewhere are getting ham-
mered. A Muslim community leader in Man-
chester, England, once told me that if you
turn on the evening news a bit late, it some-
times takes a moment to figure out whether
smoke, and flames, and gunfire on the screen
are in Lebanon, Gaza, Afghanistan, Somalia,
or Iraq. He said this had a big effect on the
Muslim young.

And then there is the Internet. Experts
on terrorism say that you cannot overesti-
mate the power of the Internet to inflame the
passions of Muslim youth. With a computer
you can connect with all the injustices of the
Muslim world, a once great society that lies
fallow in poverty, political oppression, and
foreign occupation. :

Whereas fiery imams used to be the most
feared recruiting tool for violence, the Inter-
net has now taken over the leading role in
incitement.

A tiny minority turns to extremism, and
today’s young terrorists are self-starting.

So although potential terrorists may not
themselves be poor or oppressed, poverty
in the economic, social, and political sense is
a great motivator for terrorism. Not even
doctors are immune from that virus.

Problems the
Haitian-Bahamian
ommunity face

The following letter was writ-
ten to The Tribune by a
Freeport resident before the
May 2 election. It reflects the
feelings of many in the Hait-
ian community. — Ed.

EDITOR, The Tribune.

THIS letter is to inform you
and your avid readers of the
frustrating problems that we
in the Haitian Bahamian com-
munity face. The first and
main problem is that we have
the hardest time getting our
passports and travel docu-
ments. We were born in this
country many years ago, and
in most cases before this coun-
try became independent in
1973. We still cannot get our
Bahamian passports even
though our constitution guar-
antees us this right.

Because election is fast
approaching us now, everyone
is coming to us talking about
“they are going to help you”.
To all of the Haitian Bahami-
ans who were born in this
country before Independence,
please tell the politicians that
you want your passports
before you are going to vote
for them.

We are tired of voting for
politicians who only come
around at election time. Hait-
ian Bahamians please tell any-
one who wants your support
and your vote where you
stand.

Ask them, what are the
issues they care about, how
and when are they going to
meet with the Haitian Bahami-
an community. We are sick
and tired of politicians saying
one thing and then doing
something else.

We want to know where
they stand on the issues before
we cast our votes for them. We
are tired of them using our
families, our loved ones as
scapegoats and deporting
them.

How can we vote for the
same group of people who
have been abusing, humiliating
and mistreating us for almost
40 years?

We need Human Rights in
the Bahamas, because we have
no rights in the Bahamas. We
need representatives who will
not be afraid to speak out for
us.

We don’t need lip service,
we need action. Shane Gibson
said that he was deporting
Haitians because he was cre-
ating jobs for Bahamians. Up
to now, I have not seen any
jobs yet. For the massive num-

ber of Haitians that have been
deported from Freeport,
Grand Bahama, have him tell
us how many jobs were creat-
ed under his ministry as Min-
ister of Labour. He thinks he
did good. This is the worst for
the Bahamas and Bahamians.
The only persons who spoke
out on our behalf were Hubert
Ingraham and Fred Smith.
After that no one else has spo-
ken up for us in the Bahamas.

If the PLP come to you and
ask you to vote for them, ask
them, when they were deport-
ing the Haitians if there were
any PLP leaders who asked
them to stop. Ask them how
many people they deported?
Tell them to their face, and
don’t. wait till they leave and
speak behind their backs. Ask
them about the 10 Haitians
who were killed in Exuma,
and there are no answers until
now. ;

Ask them about all the Hait-
ian homes that were burned
down in Abaco. What did they
say or do to prevent these fires
which are now a regular thing
in Marsh Harbour? Under the
PLP, Abaco had more
unsolved fires in the Haitian
community than at any other
time in the history of the
Bahamas.

Even the US Ambassador
has noted how evil and preju-
diced the, Bahamians. are
towards Haitians.

This is a shame for the white
man to see and speak out
about the blatant abuses, and
discrimination that our own
black Bahamian brothers and
sisters dish out to their less
fortunate Haitian brothers and
sisters.

The PLP deported the
Haitians in an effort to
impress the Bahamian public,
but this has resulted in the fur-
ther destruction of the
Bahamian economy.

Haitians make so many
valuable contributions to this
country and now we are seeing
it. The stores are closing daily,
because there is no business.
They left no one to patronise
the Bahamian people’s busi-
nesses. When did you ever
hear of volunteers being
harassed by the immigration

department? Only. under the.

PLP administration.
In 1986 we were faced with
Loftus Roker. Now in 2006 we

had Shane Gibson. The sad
fact is that Bahamians have
not figured out yet that
Haitians are here to stay.

Shane Gibson thought he
was God, but whatever a per-
son does on earth, he will have
to pay for it on earth. Even
though he sent the Haitians
back to Haiti, but God has giv-
en us justice anyway in His
way. I will never forget Shane
Gibson because of what he did
to my people. The only party
that all the Haitian Bahami-
ans have to believe in is the
FNM. Our leader is Hubert
Ingraham.

Tell Renae Grant, she needs
to start talking with the Hait-
ian-Bahamians in Eight Mile
Rock.

If she does not come soon,
she will lose big. If we can’t
vote for the FNM, we won’t
vote.

Only one party who cares
for the Haitian people is the
FNM people.

Don’t let the PLP people
buy you, and five years later
you can’t find food to eat.

Look at all the hotels that
have closed down. The PLP
have not been able to open
anyone yet.

Anytime the PLP is in pow-
er, we get no respect.

We cannot find jobs. Please,
my Haitian Bahamian broth-
ers and sisters, don’t let the
PLP come and try to fool you,
telling you they will do some-

‘thing for you, because they -

can’t do anything for them-
selves.
Look at the way they treat.C..

B Moss. If they betrayed his

trust, what do you think they
will do to you?

He was a loyal, faithful
decent PLP Senator, and when
they two-timed him, they
called him everything besides
the child of God.

He was good enough for
them to use him as a PLP Sen-
ator for almost five years, but
he was not good enough when
it was time for them to keep
their promises to him. If PLPs
can’t trust PLP's, why should
you trust them? —

The only reason why I am
writing this letter to the Editor
is because I am a Bahamian
who was born in the Bahamas
before Independence and I
have a right to speak out just
like every one else.

THURSDAY, JULY 12, 2007, PAGE 5







With travel organisers, tourists and resorts consistently complaining
about the state of Nassau’s Lynden Pindling International Airport,
we take a look at the revolving nightmare of the baggage claim...



Another suitcase in another hall?

@ By TANEKA THOMPSON

ANGRY travellers are com-
plaining about the “chaotic”
state of the baggage claim sec-
tion in the Lynden Pindling
International Airport over the
holiday weekend.

According to two travellers,
on Monday afternoon several
of the airport’s luggage convey-
or belts were “out of commis-
sion” leaving only two of the
four belts functional. Report-
edly, baggage from six or seven
different airlines clogged the
belts, while “backed up” bags
from earlier flights littered the
already congested area.

“It was mayhem, I’ve never
seen anything like it,” a
Bahamian passenger who trav-
elled on the Jet Blue airline told
The Tribune. “Basically there
were four or five airlines putting
baggage on one belt. Everything
couldn’t fit on the belts and lug-
gage was toppling over on the
ground,” she said.

The passenger, who asked for
her name to be withheld, said it
took her and her husband over
an hour to locate their bags “in
the maze” of luggage that was
discarded haphazardly on the
ground.

She also expressed embar-
rassment over the way airport
personnel treated locals as well
as tourists, who were all picking
their way through the “maze” in
a tedious effort to locate their
baggage. The source added that
airport baggage handlers pro-
vided little, to no assistance to
the irate and confused trav-
ellers. “When someone would
ask a baggage handler which
belt their luggage might be on,
they would just say ‘go look on
the ground’.”

“There is a problem with our
belts [at the airport],” Mervin
Hutchinson, general manager

of the Airport Authority, admit-
ted yesterday. “We have peo-
ple who come in on a nightly
basis and perform maintenance
duties,” he added.

Upgrade

In March 2007, the Nassau
Airport Development Compa-
ny (NADC) took charge of the
infrastructure and upgrading of
the airport. According to Craig
Richmond, president of NADC,
all of the conveyor belts at the
airport were functional on Mon-
day, but due to overweight lug-
gage and other items, two of the
belts had to be shut down.

“Well actually they were all
operational, but at one point they































had to be shut down because the
bags that were coming in were
too heavy for them and were
they going to burn out,” Mr
Richmond told The Tribune.
“We're finding that a lot of the

objects being put on the

carousels are really heavy, such
as engine blocks, and even a
motorcycle. We’re trying to work
with the airlines to tell them
don’t put those [items] on the
carousels. Even the regular bags
are heavy, and if we don’t stop
[the belts] they will burn out.”
While Mr Richmond con-
tends that incidents like Mon-
day’s are not “happening all the
time”, he says that efforts are
being put in place to upgrade
existing machinery at the air-
port, however the results will

“Expectations are really high
that we are going to be able to
change everything overnight,
and it’s just not that simple. It’s
going to require a little bit of
tolerance on everybody’s part

‘while we get through this. For

example, those carousels are
not cheap, and the area that
they’re in now will be com-
pletely demolished and rebuilt.
We’re doing everything we can
do maintain them, given their
limitations.”

By summer next year, the
NADC plans to start construc-
tion on a new terminal at the
airport, with a projected com-
pletion date of early 2010. Cur-
rently, the organisation is work-
ing on a strategy to better han-

in the baggage terminal and to
ensure that “fallback” measures
are in place to recover from

' these disruptions. “We just have

to make sure recovering from
these things is just as important
as not letting them happen,” Mr
Richmond added.

“We’re working on some con-
tingency plans to bring the
heavy bags around to the Cus-
toms hall, but that will require
the co-operation of baggage
handlers and Customs officers.”
This contingency plan would

The importance of the press to good government

Without the press, the mod-
ern emperor — Whether dictator
or elected president — is insulated,
encapsulated in a cocoon of
many who are either sycophants
or who are truly awed by those in
power. — David Steinberg

It is in the public interest that
everything should come out. —
Tony Benn

Every bureaucracy seeks to
increase the superiority of the
professionally informed by keep-
ing their knowledge and inten-
tions secret. — Max Weber

Pee. I find it difficult
to write about this sub-
ject — it's such a no-brainer, and
so crucial to the good gover-
nance of the country that it
upsets me.

Here are the bare-faced
facts: Public authorities act in the
public interest. There is no legit-
imate interest in keeping public
information private. And with-
out access to information we
cannot hold public authorities to
account.

In fact, colonial authorities
purposely used secrecy to main-
tain their power and pres-
tige. But although we gained our

"freedom" from British rule over
30 years ago, we have yet to per-
suade our homeboy rulers to tol-
erate freedom of information.
On the contrary, they continue
to believe that secrecy (of even
the most trivial information)
equals power.

In Kenya, for example, a file
of newspaper clippings was
marked "very confidential" and
access to it denied without the
permission of the permanent sec-
retary. And we have no doubt
that at this very moment some
Bahamian bureaucrat is refus-
ing to answer a reporter's phone
call or e-mail.

Our 1973 independence con-
stitution guarantees freedom of
conscience, expression, assem-
bly and association. It also says
we are free "to receive and
impart ideas and information
without interference."

Unfortunately, Tough Call
has never been able to "receive
or impart" information without
some pompous civil servant or
politician running "interference",
which indicates to me that the
entire government is unconsti-
tutional.

The principle of freedom of
information — that citizens have
a right to information held by
public authorities — is increas-

ingly accepted in the developed
world, although access laws face
huge implementation problems
and often receive only lip ser-
vice from bureaucrats.

You may think that freedom
of information is an American
idea, but you would be wrong.
It was first legislated in Sweden.
A libertarian parliamentarian
named Anders Chydenius is
regarded as the father of free-
dom of information as we under-
stand it today.

In 1765 he published a pam-
phlet called The National Gain,
calling for the abolition of trade
restrictions, the lifting of cen-
sorship, and freedom of infor-
mation. And the following year
he persuaded the Swedish par-
liament to give the public free
access to all official documents,
as Well as parliamentary reports
and records.

This law required that offi-
cial documents should "upon
request immediately be made
available to anyone" at no
charge. And at the same time,
the Swedes established the
world’s first parliamentary
ombudsman.

It was not until after the Sec-
ond World War that US man-
dated government agencies "to
keep and maintain records open
to inspection by the public."
That was followed by a 1958 law
barring bureaucrats from using
legal precedents to keep the pub-
lic's business secret. But a Free-
dom of Information Act was not
passed in the US until 1966. And

it had to be strengthened in 1974
following the Watergate scan-
dal.

From the 1960s onwards, pres-
sure grew on governments
around the world to legislate
access to public information.
Australia, Canada and New
Zealand all enacted FOI laws in
1982. But the United Kingdom
delayed until 2000, and that law
did not fully kick in until 2005.

I: the English-speaking
Caribbean, Antigua and
Barbuda, Belize, Jamaica, and
Trinidad and Tobago have all
passed access legislation. Others
— including the British Virgin
Islands, the Cayman Islands and
Guyana — are discussing draft
legislation. The Jamaican law
was helped along by the (Jim-
my) Carter Centre at the request
of former prime minister P. J.
Patterson.

Common features of all these
laws include a general right of
access to information held by
public authorities, subject to
exemptions protecting specified
public interests. Disclosure can
be refused only where it can be
shown that the information

would cause harm, and there is
usually a right of appeal to an
independent body.

Freedom of information laws
have turned up some interesting
facts over the years. For exam-
ple, USAToday discovered
that President Gerald Ford gave
Indonesian strongman Suharto
the green light to invade East
Timor in 1975. That invasion
killed 200,000 people and later
had to be reversed by the United
Nations at great cost.

And the Associated Press was
able to substantiate a long-held
African-American allegation
that white people had cheated
them out of their land. In many
cases, documents showed that
white officials had simply
approved the transfer of prop-
erty deeds.

Some of the successful
requests under the Jamaican
Access to Information Act cov-
ered details of contracts and
expenditure relating to infra-
structure projects, staffing lev-
els at a public hospital, and
school test scores.

In Britain, freedom of infor-
mation requests have. found that
scores of police officers have
criminal records; that the prime

such as the probe into the beat-
ing of a foreign journalist by a

Defence Force officer, or the »

ing scandal — just to name a few.

But it's not just about curios- °

ity. The aim of a freedom of
information act is to promote
good governance by
enabling people like you and me
to participate in the making and
administration of our national
laws and policies. And the risk of
government embarrassment is
no justification for keeping pub-
lic information secret.

he British FOI law cov-

ers 100,000 public bod-
ies — including government
departments, schools and coun-

cils, which have 20 working days
to respond to requests for infor-

mation. And no-one has to give ,.

a reason for their request. An

independent authority enforces ,

the law.

In its 2007 manifesto, the Free
National Movement promised
to enact such a law for the
Bahamas. But that commitment
has appeared in earlier election
platforms too. And, as we all
know, the mere passage of a law
is no guarantee that its provi-
sions will not be ignored.

Experience in other countries
suggests that the key elements
that make an access to informa-
tion law effective are: political
will, information management
capacity, and training to change
the mindset of civil servants as
well as the public. More impor-
tantly, the law needs to be
designed with actual implemen-

tation in mind rather than just «

going through the motions.

* According to Laura Neu-
mann of the Carter Centre:
"Effective implementation is a
joint partnership between the
holders of information (govern-
ment or the private sector) and
the requesters (citizens, civil soci-
ety organizations, media, etc.).
Recognizing that there is dual
responsibility helps us under-
stand the nature of the challenge
and contributes to the design of
viable solutions."

As Richard Calland recently
wrote in the South African Mail
and Guardian newspaper,
"promising transparency is one

‘thing, delivering it is quite anoth-

er."

Pastors call for return
to One Bahamas plan

A GROUP of senior reli-
gious leaders is calling for a
renewed emphasis on the origi-
nal principles of the One
Bahamas programme — saying
that lingering inequalities and
racial divisions must be over-
come in the name of unity.

One Bahamas was begun
many years ago by several
prominent Bahamians, includ-
ing Sir Durward Knowles and
Sir Orville Turnquest, and
aimed at bringing all compo-
nents of Bahamian society
together in the spirit of unity.
A One Bahamas festival is still
held in November every year,
but the pastors feel that its cen-
tral message needs be high-
lighted once again.

“On the occasion of our 34th
year of independence and 40
years since majority rule, we
believe the time is opportune
for us to look again and under-
score the ideals enunciated in
the National One Bahamas Pro-
gramme,” said a statement
issued by the group.

“As we celebrate our inde-
pendence, we believe and
declare that there can be no
nobler pursuit, nor higher call-
ing than for all Bahamians to
work for a united Bahamas.”

The statement was signed by:
Bishop Simeon Hall, senior pas-
tor of New Covenant Baptist
Church; Bishop Samuel
Greene, president of the Zion
Baptist Convention; Bishop
Gregory Minnis, pastor of New

still exist today — “must not

the needed dialogue to bring
about greater social, racial and

Bahamians, regardless of race,
political affiliation, or religious
pe -suasion, must heed the call
to seek ways to build One
Bahamas,” the statement said.

It said that this year’s inde-

a juncture in the nation’s histo-
ry when it is imperative that all

mon good.

Tribune Feature Writer

APPARENTLY, sharing the
same surname is no proof that
we are related. So if I assumed
that being a Burrows automati-
cally made me family to all Bur-
rows’ | may have to think again.
Who knows ~ I might just be
related to Stephens from
Jamaica, or a Robinson some-
where in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

And the colour of a person’s
skin? Well that is not a fool
proof indication of ones ancestry
either. My brown skin may have
me fooled to believe that ama
descendant of Africa alone,
when I might really share ances-
try with someone in England or
some Roman royalty.

Since June 2004, Bahamians
have been discovering new and
interesting facts about their
geneology. They have been con-
firming their true relatives, and
finding new genetic connections
that go way beyond what is writ-
ten in the family tree list in the
family Bible. ‘Phey have even
been acquainting themselves
with the African tribe from
which they descend.

[his is all being done through
the Bahamas DNA Project, the
brainchild of Peter Roberts, a
Bahamian professor at Georgia
State University, where he has
worked as an archivist for the
past 18 years. Professor Roberts
interned at the Smithsonian's
National Museum of African
Art, and part of his studies
focused on African retentions in
Bahamian culture. He has fasci-
nated with family history for the
past 30 years, he told Tribune
Woman in a recent interview.

A Bahamian who resides in
the United States, and is inter-
ested in his own family origin,
Mr Roberts decided to take the

, oration Is experiencing significant

Y-chromosone test (to deter-
mine his direct see line).
Mr Roberts’ family from Marsh
Harbour enjoys a legend that his
great-great grandfather and two
brothers sailed from Belfast and
were shipwrecked in Abaco,

Despite this tale, Peter con-
tinued to believe that all the
Roberts families in The
Bahamas shared a common
ancestry back to about 1720. But
when he compared test results
with a Roberts from Key West
whose ancestry is from Harbour
Island by way Green Turtle Cay,
and another Roberts with ances-
try from Great Guana Cay, it as
discovered that no two of them
were related.

As it turned out, Mr Roberts’
closest genetic matches have
Scottish heritage. What was puz-
zling is that he also matched a
Reid in Jamaica. Mr Roberts lat-
er found out that that man’s
direct paternal line also led back
to Scotland.

Hoping to share the test with
his fellow Bahamians he initiat-
ed The Bahamas DNA Project.
This project is similar to a much
larger study aimed at mapping
how humankind populated the
earth. That global project is a
five-year research partnership
between National Geographic
and IBM, with public participa-
tion through Family Tree DNA,
the same testing company used
by the Bahamas Project.

In town recently to present
the findings of the project thus
far, Peter Roberts spoke at a
forum hosted by The Bahamas
Historical Society. What he
revealed was just as interesting
as his own personal findings.

Mr Roberts has identified 175
different surnames in the
Bahamas. One third of those sur-
names have been represented
thus far. But of this number, only
7 geneologies have actually been
confirmed. In order to confirm
these geneologies, more people
will need to be tested.



@ THE double helix of DNA

Using a simple DNA test,
participants are subjected only
to a cheek swab which they
order from the Bahamas DNA
Project link. The swab is self
administered, sent back to the
lab, and in two months they have
their results.

The Bahamas DNA Project
will either perform a Y-chromo-
some test on any male with direct
paternal
Bahamas, or a mtDNA test for
men or women with direct mater-
nal ancestry in the Bahamas.
However, the mtDNA test is
more valuable in revealing deep
ancestry and is less suited for
genealogy purposes. Women
may also participate by recruiting
a brother, father, or other male
relative with Bahamian ancestry
to take the Y-chromosome test.
The results will be maintained to
match future Bahamian partici-
pants.

The tests conducted thus far
have revealed much. Of the 129
volunteer participants of the
Bahamas DNA Project, 22 per
cent of them live in the
Bahamas. Eighty-three of the
129 participants have taken the
Y-chromosone test, represent-
ing 57 different surnames.

line ancestry from the Bahamas
or they have direct maternal line
ancestry from the Bahamas,” Mr
Roberts explained.

“Their results can be com-
pared with over 100,000 people
worldwide whose results are in
various databases. National Geo-
graphic's Genographic Project
is currently testing 100,000 peo-
ple from indigenous ethnic
groups worldwide and those
results should also be available
for comparison within about
three years,” he added.

Some people with the Lowe
surname were tested, and based
on their geneology, we know
who the first Lowe was in the
Bahamas. They tested two of his
descendants who match with
people living in Portugal and in
Portuguese colonies. In speak-
ing with two other
Lows since the results were
revealed, Mr Roberts said that
they have also mentioned an oral
history linking them to Portugal.

One Wells family was tested
and their DNA matched persons
from Spain and those from
Spanish colonies.

What was also interesting is
that some people in the
Bahamas who thought that they
had only African ancestry, dis-
covered that they had European
descendants as well.

Two Eldons have been tested
and their DNA match the same
genetic signature. But their
DNA also matches the sole Stur-
rup who was tested — which fur-
ther cements the view that sur-
names do not hecessarily limit
family ties.

There were 46 people of dif-
ferent surnames who took the
mtDNA test. Forty-four of them
had no idea that they were relat-
ed to someone else in the pro-
ject. But the DNA results -
revealed that they did share a
relation.

There were two of them who
suspected that they shared ances-
try with someone in the study.
And that was confirmed.

Of the overall results, three
families had some interesting his-
tory. First, the Sweeting that was
tested appears to be a descen-
dent of a Roman soldier. But Mr
Roberts noted that more Sweet-
ings will have to be tested in
order to confirm this.

Then the Pierce family appar-
ently has Eastern European
roots.

A Major who tested matches
the DNA signature of a Majors
in Baltimore, Maryland who
belong to a rare group of Euro-
peans called K2. Mr Roberts
noted that less than 1 per cent of
Europeans belong to this group.
The most famous person in this
group is Thomas Jefferson.

It was also discovered that
there are two different Maura
families in the Bahamas. Before
testing, there was thought to be
only one Maura family here and
that everyone with that surname
were related.

With a popular surname like
Rolle, history tells us that various
slaves took on that name. But
the test, said Mr Roberts, will
determine which Rolles are tru-
ly related, and which ones simply
share the same name.

The ultimate benefit of this
project, said Mr Roberts, is that it
opens a new dimension to family
history. Before, we only had
paper geneology, which goes back
as far as the early 1800s at best.

He also noted that there are
many people willing to join the
project if there was funding to
help pay for their test since they
cannot afford the full cost of
their test. So donations to the
project are welcomed. Thus far,

Claim that Harbour Island power:

in the heat" while tourists have
been heard describing the nor-
mally quaint and popular com-
munity as "third world" because
of the ongoing problems. "It is
almost chaotic here," said one
local.

Reports reached The Tri-
bune Monday that over 90 peo-
ple were demonstrating on
Dunmore Street in front of the
BEC office, however this could
not be confirmed. However,
several sources independently
claimed yesterday that some
individuals have even "taken
matters into their own hands",
attempting to turn power back
on at the local BEC plant.

A general manager at one
Harbour Island hotel, Coral
Sands, claims to have lost
$15,000 worth of electrical
equipment as a result of the fail-
ures. The hotel, and several oth-
er major resorts contacted by
The Tribune are spending sig-
nificant funds running their gen-
erators at all hours of the day to
cover the loss of supply, which
can occur up to six times a day
for hours at a time, sources con-
firmed.

Another small local hotel

owner said that two rooms of

visitors checked out last week
after complaining about the
heat in their rooms when their
air conditioning unit went
down.

Ice-making machines are
particularly susceptible to the
fluctuations in supply, according
to reports, with the effect that
ice also became a scarce com-
modity on the island.

FROM page one

In an interview with The Tribune, Mr Rich-

“Tourists think we're stupid
because we don't have any
water, ice or current," said a
hotel worker.

Meanwhile, boaters — major
contributors to the ’Briland
economy — also have been sig-
nificantly affected. According
to a concerned resident, one
yacht owner was among ten that
have left Harbour Island mari-
nas this week because of the
conditions.

"I work every day with
tourists and three say they are
never coming back to ’Briland
because of damage cause to
their boats. One man said he
had a $30,000 repair bill on his
boat system ’cause it got ‘fried’
in power surge. He swore he
will never come back," said the
despairing resident in an e-mail
to The Tribune yesterday.

"It is embarrassing at work
and it is miserable at home,"
said the local.

Resident Martin Lee, claimed
that MP for the area Alvin
Smith, despite being a general-
ly good representative has not
addressed the issue satisfacto-
rily.

Yesterday however, Mr
Smith said that he was in fact
very concerned about the situa-
tion. He added that it was just
one of many utility supply-relat-
ed problems plaguing the Har-
bour Island community in par-
ticular.

While BEC has not provid-
ed, either to the press or resi-
dents, any explanation for the
situation, Mr Smith said that
the local power plant is short
of generators after a fire, and
one of the two that is currently
running is only working at half

its normal rate.

He suggested that the caper
ration has not planned ahead,
for the expansion that has,
occurred on the island and the‘
previous government did not!
make efforts to ensure the over-,
burdened system was upgrad=
ed in a timely manner.

The MP said he spoke to,
Minister of Works.and Trans-
port Earl Deveaux last week’
about the matter, and received,
assurances that Mr Deveaux
was giving his full attention to.
the crisis. However, Mr Smith‘
warned that the problem now:
has no short term solution. It
might even get worse for resi+
dents and businesses before i
gets better, particularly as the
Summer season brings extra,
visitors who will add to the
demand on electricity to power’
air conditioning units. Addi-?
tional water deficiencies may,
be a knock-on effect of pro-
longed power outages, he sug?
gested.

A general manager at one

major resort, who declined to
be named, said that while he
had pleaded with BEC in the
past for compensation for sup-
ply-related equipment failures,
he has now "stopped bother-
ing" because he has never been:
successful.
"Yesterday, BEC placed an,
advertisement in The Tribune:
in which it apologised to resi;
dents for what it described as:
"significant generation prob-
lems."

The advertisement informed
the public that BEC is "working
around the clock to correct the.
problem" and "regrets any:
inconvenience." ’ :

mond — an executive with Vancouver Airport
Services — said that while the Nassau Develop-
ment Company is currently maintaining and oper-
ating the airport, it is also simultaneously working
toward completing its project definition report.

The report, which will include a “very defined”
business plan and about 25 per cent of the air-
port’s new $250-$350 million design plan, will be
presented to Cabinet in mid-September of this
year.

In the meantime, Mr Richmond said, “a whole
host” of projects are being carried out at the air-
port to improve and upgrade the out-dated facil-
ity.

The NAD president said that just under $10
million has recently been earmarked to upgrade
the existing terminals.

“We already have a roof repair contract, | think
people appreciate that, to stop the leaks. We've
approved $2 million in projects to improve the

A new baggage system and air conditioning

However, he said the infor-

an adult were involved with
the murder.

“We're not going to say that
it was only two persons as the

running all over the place.
And so, as we interview peo-
ple we will know exactly how
many other people, if any oth-
er persons, other than the per-
son we brought to your atten-
tion might be involved in this.

“So at this point I don’t

And as we go on it might be
one, two, or three, or four,”
Mr Millersaid.

He told police that he and
his wife had had a heated argu-

resulted in her getting into

At about 5 pm Saturday Mr
Brown again contacted the

Mexican gas
explosions
force factories,
businesses to
temporarily
Shut down

li MEXICO CITY

HONDA, Hershey’s and
other multinational compa-
nies temporarily shut down
their factories in western
Mexico on Wednesday after
rebels attacked a key natural
gas pipeline, according to
Associated Press.

The small, left-wing guer-
rilla group that claimed
responsibility for the explo-
sions issued a statement late
Tuesday vowing to continue
the attacks, while the Mexi-
can government scrambled
to increase security at
“strategic installations”
across Mexico.

At least a dozen compa-
nies including Honda Motor
Co., Kellogg Co.’s, The Her-
shey Co., Nissan Motor Co.,
and Grupo Modelo SA were
forced to suspend or scale
back operations because of
the lack of natural gas, the
daily newspaper Excelsior
reported. They said they
faced millions of dollars in
losses.

Vitro SAB, a Mexican
company that makes glass
containers, said the shutdown
of two plants would cost it
about $800,000 a day. Vitro
said in a statement that it was
increasing production at oth-
er plants in Mexico to mini-
mize effects on customers.

Total business losses were
being estimated at more than
70 million pesos ($6.4 mil-
lion) a day, Excelsior report-
ed, citing unidentified
sources. The association rep-
resenting Mexican industry
said Wednesday it was look-
ing into the extent of the
explosions’ financial impact.

Officials from Mexico’s
state-owned oil and gas
monopoly Petroleos Mexi-
canos, or Pemex, said an
explosion Tuesday and two
more last week affected dif-
ferent sections of the same
pipeline. The company sent
150 workers to repair the
line.

The disruption affected
clients in the industry-rich
city of Guadalajara, capital
of the western state of Jalis-
co; the industrial city of
Leon, in the central state of
Guanajuato; and the central
states of Queretaro and
Aguascalientes.

Pemex said the gas would
probably not be restored
until Friday at the earliest,
but was working to
provide alternate means of
delivery.

Tuesday’s explosion
caused no injuries but forced
the evacuation of communi-
ties around the town of
Coroneo, near Queretaro’s
capital, Pemex said. On July
5, two explosions on the
same pipeline in Guanajuato
also forced evacuations but
caused no injuries.

The group that claimed
responsibility for the explo-
sions is the “military zone
command of the People’s
Revolutionary Army,” or
EPR, a tiny rebel group that
staged several armed attacks
on government and police
installations in southern
Mexico in the 1990s, but was
later weakened by internal
divisions.

Center in Cape Canaveral, Fla., Wednesday, July 11, 2007.

Endeavour moves to launch pad
in preparation for NASA mission

@ CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.

THE shuttle Endeavour
arrived at its launch pad early
Wednesday for a flight that will
finally carry teacher-turned-
astronaut Barbara Morgan into
space, according to Associated
Press.

The mission, scheduled to
begin Aug. 7, will take Morgan
and six crewmates to the inter-
national space station.

It’s been a nearly five-year
wait for Endeavour, but the
shuttle has nothing on Morgan:
She’s been waiting 22 years to
reach orbit.

In 1985, Morgan was picked
as Christa McAuliffe’s backup
to become the first teacher in
space under a special NASA
program. Then the Challenger
carrying McAuliffe broke apart
shortly after liftoff in 1986, and
Morgan returned to teaching.
In 1998, she was selected as a
full-fledged astronaut.

On her first mission, the 55-
year-old Morgan will operate
the shuttle’s robotic arm, coor-
dinate the transfer of cargo and
talk from space to students at
three schools, if the mission is
extended.

Talking to students and
teachers Wednesday morning,
Morgan said she was most look-
ing forward to seeing McCall,
Idaho — where she t taught ele-
nientary students — from space.
She said the Endeavour crew
was training hard during their

last few weeks before launch.

“There’s a ton of work to be
done,” Morgan said during the
forum at-dohnson-Space Cen-
ter,

Morgan is far from being the
oldest astronaut ever to fly ona
space shuttle. Astronaut Story
Musgrave was 61 when he flew
his last mission aboard Colum-
bia in 1996, and John Glenn was
77 when he flew aboard Dis-
covery in 1998.

The Endeavour crew will
deliver a new truss segment,
5,000 pounds of cargo and fix a
gyroscope, which helps control
the station’s position. It also

plans four spacewalks if the mis- ,

sion is extended to 14 days.

“It has a little bit of every-
thing,” said Matt Abbott, lead
shuttle flight director.

Endeavour reached the
launch pad shortly after 3 a.m.,
completing a 3.4-mile trip
aboard the massive crawler-
transporter from the Vehicle
Assembly Building in seven
hours. It was a day late because
the weather had nixed plans to
move it early Tuesday.

The launch would be
NASA’s second shuttle flight
this year.

The last ime Endeavour was
at the pad was in November
2002, before its launch on a con-
struction mission to the space
station. It was the last shuttle
flight before the Columbia dis-
aster killed seven astronauts
and grounded the space shuttle

program for 2 1/2 years.

Endeavour has since under-
gone a major tune-up. The shut-
tle’s structure was inspected for
corrosion. Filter and seals were
replaced. More than 1,900 ther-
mal blankets were examined,
and two windows were replaced
with thicker panes.

“We’re really excited to have
Endeavour fly again,” Kim
Doering, NASA’s deputy man-
ager of the space shuttle pro-
gram, said Tuesday. “Obvious-
ly, having brand new belts and
hoses and having just checked
the structure and replaced all
the tiles — they’re brand new
— makes this a very nice vehi-
cle to climb on to.”

Endeavéur also has a new
system'which allows power
from the space station to be
transferred to the shuttle while
docked. If the new system
works properly, the il-day mis-
sion will be extended by an
extra three days.

@ ASTRONAUT Barbara
Morgan discusses her upcom-
_ing space shuttle mission with
students during "Meet an
Astronaut Day," at the Space
Center in Houston, Friday,
Jan. 19, 2007. Morgan, a for-
mer Idaho school teacher, is a
member of the STS-118 space
shuttle crew scheduled to
launch in August.

106 dead at Red Mosque; Pakistan army

At least

says commandos cleared out all militants

@ ISLAMABAD, Pakistan



COMMANDOS cleared the war-
ren-like Red Mosque complex of rebel
fighters Wednesday, ending a fierce
eight-day siege and street battles that
left more than 100 dead. The govern-
ment warned it would not tolerate mil-

itancy in any of Pakistan’s thousands of

religious schools, according to Associ-
ated Press.

Officials found no corpses of women
and children, although seven or eight of
the bodies had been burned beyond
recognition, apparently by the mili-
tants’ gasoline bombs, said Maj. Gen.
Waheed Arshad, a military spokesman.

At least 106 people were killed over-
all since the violence began at the Red
Mosque. They include 10 soldiers, one
police ranger and several civilians who
died in the crossfire.

The dead included the mosque’s pro

‘Taliban cleric Abdul Rashid Ghazi.

Arshad said 73 bodies believed to
be those of the mosque’s die-hard
defenders were found after the final,
35-hour assault that began carly Tues-
day.

“There may be a few more which
may be found in the debris. We don’t
expect there will be many,” Arshad
told Dawn News television. “We have
handed them (the bodies) to the civil-
ian authorities.”

The clite Special Services Group
commandos went in after unsuccess-
ful attempts to get the militants to sur-
render to the siege mounted by the
government following deadly street
clashes with armed supporters of the
mosque July 3.

The extremists had been using the
mosque as a base to send out radical-

ized students to enforce their version of

Islamic morality, including abducting

alleged prostitutes and trying to “re-
educate” them at the compound in the
heart of Pakistan’s capital.

Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz warned
that the government would act against
any other madrassa, or religious school,
found to be involved in militancy.

“Militancy cannot be promoted,
period,” he told reporters. “The law
will take its course, as the law took its
course here.”

President Gen. Pervez Musharrat
vowed five years ago to regulate Pak-
istan’s thousands of religious schools,
but concerns have only grown that
some are used as sanctuaries or train-
ing sites for militants — including ‘Tal-
iban rebels fighting in Afghanistan,

Deputy Information Minister ‘Tariq
Azim conceded it was possible that
other madrassas in Pakistan could be
harboring weaponry like the Red
Mosque, but added that the assault

had sent a strong message that the gov-
ernment “meant business.”

“We need to be now much more vig-
ilant, but I hope they (extremist

madrassas) have got the message that if

they are in involved in such activities,
they will have to face action,” he said.

An army officer, who spoke on con-
dition of anonymity because he was
not authorized to speak to the media,
said troops moved from room to room
in basements of the compound, blow-
ing up foxholes where militants had
been entrenched.

Relatives of young women, men and
children who had been in the mosque
waited behind army barricades and
inquired at morgues or a sports stadi-
um where authorities set up an infor-
mation center for those seeking missing
loved ones.

I am looking for my son who was
studying at the madrassa, but I don’t

know whether he is alive,” said Jan
Mohammed, 42, whose son,
Mohammed Khan, could not leave the
mosque during the siege. He was
among about 100 parents who were
gathered at the Sports stadium.

Ghazi’s body was pa oe. in the base-
ment of a women’s religious’ school
after a fierce gunbattle between gov-
ernment troops and militants, said Brig.
Javed Iqbal Cheema, a senior Interior
Ministry official.

Several security officials, who spoke
on condition of anonymity because
they were not authorized to speak to
the media, said Ghazi was wounded
by two bullets and gave no response
when ordered to surrender. Comman-
dos then fired another volley and found
him dead.

Arshad said Ghazi’s body had
been handed over to the Interior Min-
istry.

| Britain’s Brown
meets UN chief
and discusses
urgent need for
Darfur solution

m@ LONDON

BRITAIN'S premier and the

U.N. secretary-general met |

Wednesday and pledged to
intensify efforts to resolve the
crisis in Sudan's western Darfur
region, according to Associat-
ed Press.

Gordon Brown and Ban Ki-
moon told a news conference
they also discussed climate
change, the stalled world trade
negotiations, and the need for a
new drive to meet the United
Nations' Millennium Develop-
ment Goals, which aim to alle-
viate poverty, disease and
hunger around the world.

However, Brown said much
if their discussion focused on
finding a lasting solution to the
conflict in Darfur as "one of

the urgent areas for action in
the next few months."

"We are ready to engage
with Sudan as long as it coop-
erates. We are ready to take

action to protect the people of

Darfur, if it does not," he told
reporters.

The 7,000-strong African
Union force has failed to stop
the violence in Darfur, where
more than 200,000 people have

been killed and 2.5 million have

fled in nearly four years of

fighting between the govern-
ment and ethnic African rebels.

The violence only increased
after the government and one
rebel group signed a peace deal
last year. Other rebel groups
rejected the deal and contin-
ued fighting.

The meeting at Brown's

Downing Street office marked
Ban's first official visit to
Britain since he succeeded Kofi
Annan at the beginning of the
year.

Ban praised Brown for his
work on issues such as Third
World debt during his decade
as Britain's Treasury chief. Ban
also commended the "very
swift, dignified, decisive and
composed" way Brown and his.
new Cabinet dealt with the
recent failed car bomb attacks
in London and Glasgow.

On Tuesday, Ban met in
London with Tony Blair for the
first time since the former
prime minister was named an
envoy for the international
diplomatic Quartet on the Mid-
dle East — the U.S., the EU, the
U.N. and Russia.

China says sizzling economy grew
even faster in 2006 than first reported

@ BEIJING

CHINA’S sizzling economy grew even
faster in 2006 than previously reported, the
government said Wednesday, moving it clos-
er to overtaking Germany as the world’s
third-largest and possibly adding to fears
of overheating, according to Associated
Press."

The National Bureau of Statistics raised
its estimate of China’s 2006 growth rate from
10.7 percent to 11.1 percent.

It nudged up its estimate of total output by
146.4 billion yuan ($18.8 billion) to 21.1 tril-
jion yuan ($2.705 trillion)

The revision brought China closer to Ger-
many, the world’s third-largest economy after
the United States and Japan. Germany’s 2006
output was $3 trillion but its 2.5 percent
growth rate was well below China’s.

Report

The statistics agency routinely issues such
revisions to economic growth rates. But the
latest report could receive special attention
from Chinese leaders, who are trying to rein
in a boom that they worry could ignite a

_ financial crisis.

Chinese leaders want to maintain fast
growth to reduce poverty but are trying to
slow investment in auto manufacturing, real
estate and other areas where supply outstrips
demand. They worry that runaway spending
could ignite inflation or leave banks and bor-
rowers with dangerously high debt levels.

In the most recent official forecast, the

central bank’s research bureau said lasi
month the economy was expected to expand
by 10.8 percent this year.

That was in line with projections by the
World Bank and other economists, and
would be China’s fifth straight year of growth
in excess of 10 percent.

Wednesday’s revision was in line with the
opinions of ouiside economists, who said the
earlier figure seemed too low, suggesting the
economy was slowing despite surging exports
and other indicators.

The change comes amid reports of dou-
ble-digit growth in industrial output. invest-
ment and other economic indicators.

China’s trade surplus soared to a new
monthly high of $26.9 billion in June, the
government reported Tuesday.

That was despite official efforts to narrow
the ballooning trade gap by repealing rebates
of value-added taxes on exports.

The statistics bureau’s brier announcement
on Wednesday said the biggest increase in
China’s estimated output was in secondary
industries, which includes manufacturing,
construction and utilities.

The exact size of China’s economy is a
matter of debate, with foreign analysts saying
the small statistics agency lacks the resources
to provide more than a general estimate.

In December 2005, Beijing raised the offi-
cial size of the economy by nearly 17 per-
cent and retroactively boosted annual
growth figures for the previous decade fol-
lowing the first nationwide census of Chi-
na’s booming service industries such as
restaurants.

what larger than a railroad car,
will be part of a windowless
warren of five linked modules
being built at the institute off a
busy street near central
Moscow.

The institute and the Euro-
pean Space Agency, or ESA —
a "strategic partner" in the
project — are separately con-
sidering applications for the
mock voyage as well as two
shorter, preliminary experi-
ments — also with crews of six.
The ESA last month
announced it was looking for
candidates.

Once the main study begins,
the crew members will,remain
aboard for the duration bar-
ring emergencies, Belakovsky
said. "They will have taken off,
and that's it."

It will then be 250 days to
Mars and 240 days back, with
three participants spending a
month on the planet itself — or
rather, in a module meant to
represent it.

Before they "land," those
three will spend a month in a
separate module, lying on their
backs with their heads slightly
lower than their feet — a posi-
tion Belakovsky said was
meant to simulate weightless-
ness.

There will also be a bio-.

medical module and one for
storage and fitness. But the
crew will spend much of their
time in the 150 cubic meter
(5,300 cubic foot) living mod-
ule, which has a cabin for each
as well as a common room and
a kitchen.

All food will be taken on
before the simulated journey
begins, as will the water. No
alcohol, please, and no smok-
ing.

Scores flee as Lebanese army appears
to gear up for major assault on militants

@ BEIRUT, Lebanon

AT LEAST 150 Palestinians fled a northern refugee camp
Wednesday in anticipation of an assault by the Lebanese army
battling Islamic militants holed up inside, according to Associ-

ated Press.

Most of the refugees left with the help of the Palestinian
Red Crescent, said Samar Kadi, an International Committee
of the Red Cross communications officer.

Those fleeing arrived on foot at the southern entrance of the
Nahr el-Bared camp. They were searched by soldiers at a
Lebanese army checkpoint and then climbed into vehicles sent
by the Palestinian Red Crescent. The Lebanese army held
many of therg for interrogation, Kadi said.

Witnesses said the army was bringing in heavy teinforce-
ments to the camp area near the northern port of Tripoli, sug-
gesting a fresh assault was imminent.

A sniper from inside the camp killed a Lebanese soldier late
Tuesday after the Fatah Islam fighters rejected repeated calls

to surrender.

The mainstream Palestinian Fatah movement was reported
to have called on its guerrillas inside the camp to leave as well.

The latest buildup came as the country prepared to mark the
first anniversary of Israel’s invasion of southern Lebanon on

Thursday.

Fighting between Fatah Islam and the Lebanese army erupt-
ed May 20. Lebanon’s defense minister announced June 21
that the al-Qaida-inspired militants have been defeated and
declared major combat over after soldiers seized militant posi-

tions on the edges of the camp.

However, Fatah Islam fighters fled deeper into the camp
and continue to engage the army in firefights daily.

They have repeatedly ignored calls from the army to surren-
der, and all mediation efforts to end the military standoff have

failed.

The battle to drive the Islamic militants out has led to signif-
icant damage-to parts of the camp, once home to some 30,000
Palestinian refugees. Only a few thousand remain inside, after
most residents fled to the nearby Beddawi refugee camp.

A senior military official said the Lebanese soldier was
killed late Tuesday near the Nahr el-Bared camp by Fatah
Islam snipers inside the settlement.

family — will be complicated
by a delay of up to 20 minutes
in each direction.

The crew's mettle is likely
to be tested with mock emer-
gencies Belakovsky said might
include a radiation scare, a fire
on board or even a death.

The entire structure, private
cabins and bathrooms except-
ed, will be equipped with mul-
tiple cameras constantly mon-
itoring the action — or inaction
— within.

Sound like a reality show?
Belakovsky said the institute
has turned down offers to
make it into one, though a
documentary film is planned.

"It is not a reality show, it is
a serious, pioneering research
experiment," he said.

But with six people cooped
up in close quarters for nearly

a year and a half, sparks are '

likely to fly:

"If you and your girlfriend
were to shut yourselves in a
room for three days, five days,

a month — believe me, you -~
would have a million prob- |
lems. Either she would stran- .
gle you or you would strangle -

her," Belakovsky said.

"We think that in such :

experiments, anything is can
happen," he said.

Finding out just what does
happen is a main purpose of
the project, which Belakovsky
said would provide useful
information about "small-
group psychology."

With an estimated cost of
US$15 million, Mars500 is
being funded largely by the
Russian space agency, Roscos-
mos.

- 2 *# Oe Oe

In addition to the ESA part- *

nership, Belakovsky said, orga-
nizers welcome the participa-
tion of organizations from oth-
er countries — talks have been
held with U.S. apace agency
NASA - and are seeking spon-
SOs.

Applicants to be "human

subjects" for the experiment °
must be college graduates aged |
25 to 50, and must speak Russ- -

ian and English. Doctors, biol-
ogists and engineers are pre-
ferred.

The ESA, mostly accepting
applications from European
countries, is to select two of
the six crew members.

The Russian institute has
received applications from

countries ranging from Arme- |
nia to Australia and Bulgaria ©

to Brazil.

Diversity is key, Belakovsky .

said, "because it is our firm
conviction that it won't be a
Russian crew or an American
crew that travels to Mars, but a

mixed crew representing the *

human race."

Opening lead — jack of spades.

Declarer frequently has no idea
at the start of play what course he
will be pursuing at the end. He often
begins with what seems to be a sen-
sible line of play and waits to see
what develops.

Consider this case where South
got to three notrump after West had
overcalled in spades. Declarer won
the spade lead with the king and
could count seven top tricks consist-

ing of a spade, a heart, three dia-

monds and two clubs.
Since he had to score at least one
additional club trick, he led.a club to

the jack at trick two, losing to East’s
queen. South ducked East’s queen-
of-hearts return and won the next
heart with the ace. He then cashed
three club tricks, East and South each
discarding a heart as West parted
with a spade. This was now the posi-
tion, with declarer needing four more
tricks:

#Q10

Gauging the situation perfectly,
declarer cashed the ace and queen of
diamonds, purposely cutting himself
off from dummy’s king, and then
exited with a heart to East’s nine.

East took his two heart tricks,
but had to lead from the J-7 of dia-
monds into dummy’s K-9 at the end,
giving South the contract.

Note that declarer could also
have mdde four tricks in the dia-
grammed position by cashing the Q-
K-A of diamonds and then ducking a
spade to West, endplaying him.
Either way, South was virtually cer-

tain to make the contract, but: he..

~ could hardly have predicted that he
would finish with a choice of end-

plays when the play began: ee

time for you to be away from the
homefront.

‘No room to squeeze’ on
_ property premium rises

@ By NEIL HARTNELL

ahamian proper-

ty insurance pre-

there is little

“room for increases”, the head

of a general insurance carrier

told The Tribune yesterday,

with the high percentage of

personal income devoted to

difficult to “squeeze” further
rate rises from customers.

Patrick Ward, Bahamas

First’s president and chief
executive, said: “My current
reading is that the premiums
are at a level where I don’t per-
sonally see very much room
for [further] increases, given
the overall economic environ-
ment in the Bahamas at this
time.

“As a percentage of house-
hold income, the amount of
insurance for life and non-life
coverage is quite high, and
people have other needs in

THE Bahamian Ship Reg-
istry has again been placed
among the world’s top-ranked
shipping registries for vessel
quality and safety, with less
than 3 per cent of Bahamian
vessels inspected between
2004-2006 detained for failing
in-port inspections.

The Bahamas made the
White List (the highest stan-
dard for port state control) of
the Paris Memorandum of
Understanding (MOU) for
2006, as it had a very low
detention rate for its flagged
vessels.

Out of 3434 Bahamian-
flagged vessels inspected
between 2004 and 2006, only
98 or 2.8 per cent were
detained in port for failing
safety inspections.

Bahamians urged
to push for National
Energy legislation

@ By CARA BRENNEN-
BETHEL
Tribune Business
Reporter

BAHAMIANS were yes-
terday encouraged to seek out
alternative energy sources and
push for the passing of a
National Energy Bill, as the
summer months place a strain
on the Bahamas Electricity
Corporation’s (BEC) power
supply.

Christian Henry, of Cape
Systems (Eleuthera), which is
developing alternative energy
products, told The Tribune that
the easiest way to decrease
pressure on the power supply
is to use less current.

“Customers can take some
immediate steps. Do this by
hanging clothing out to dry
instead of using an electric dry-
er. Do this also by turning off
lights and fans, and setting air
conditioners to only cool, just
enough to stay comfortable,”
he advised.

Other measures included
turning off the water heater
when away from home, or

installing a solar hot water
heater that will pay for itself
in electricity savings within two
years, Mr Henry said.

He also suggested replacing
standard incandescent light
bulbs (that get hot when on)
with compact fluorescent light-
bulbs. These, Mr Henry said,
will pay off their high up-front
cost through electricity savings
in less than a year.

Homeowners should ensure
that their homes are well-insu-
lated to prevent cool air from
leaking out; and prevent sum-
mer heat from penetrating into
the house,” Mr Henry said.

Other measures included
planting shrubs and trees to
shade the walls of the house,
painting the roof and walls
white, choosing light-coloured
roof tiles or metal, or building
a new home by taking these
ideas into consideration.

“For those home or business
owners who might want to do
more than just conserve elec-
tricity, but want to also pro-

SEE page 14

them for specific types of
expenditure.”

Mr Ward said property
insurance prices in the
Bahamian market’ were
already close to their upper
limits, and outside of any gen-
eral increase in household
income, “people will find it
very difficult to carry on” if
there were substantial premi-
um rate increases.

Bahamian general insurance
carriers are thus having to bal-
ance their customers’ need to
keep property insurance pre-
miums affordable, especially

given that this nation is likely
to face a catastrophic event in
the shape of a major hurricane
one every two-three years, with
their requirements to charge
premium rates consistent with
the risk they take.on. Premium
prices that are below the rates
that should be charged leave
general insurance carriers
exposed to potential under-
writing losses.

“There’s a recognition that
prices in the marketplace have
an upper limit, and going
beyond that results in a fall-
off in the amount of take-up,”

Mr Ward said. “I don’t think
anyone is in the business of dri-
ving people out of insurance.”

This, he acknowledged, had
to be balanced with the need
for general insurance carriers
to earn and charge premiums
that were “technically ade-
quate”.

The Bahamian property
insurance market experienced
major premium rate increases
in 2004 and 2005, as the global
reinsurance industry sought to
recoup the massive losses it
suffered in both those years
from devastating storms such

as Charley, Katrina, Rita and
Wilma.

Bahamian general insurance
carriers have relatively smaller
capital bases compared to their
counterparts in many other
countries, in part because the
market here has evolved as.
one driven largely by agents

_ and brokers.

While they sell policies to
clients and take in premium
revenues on behalf of the

insurance carriers, earning a

and retail licensees may seek
pre-paid duty refunds totalling
“millions of dollars” from the
Customs Department, as a
Supreme Court ruling had giv-
en the Home Centre a com-
petitive advantage over its
rivals by allowing it to bring
in its entire inventory bonded.

In that case, Customs was
seeking from the Home Cen-
tre more than $738,000 in
upfront duties as a condition to
permit it to open its new store
- something it has ‘been
blocked from enforcing.

The ruling by Supreme
Court Justice Stephen Isaacs
effectively allows the Home
Centre to bring all the prod-
ucts it is stocking at its West
Atlantic Drive store into
Freeport duty-free, without
having to pre-pay duty on
goods before they are sold.

Yet ail other GBPA
licensees, such as his store,
Dolly Madison, Bellevue Busi-
ness Centre and ‘Bahamas
Copier, are having to pre-pay
custoras duties on the portion
ot imporied: inventory classi-
fied as non-bonded.

This means that Justice

Isaacs’ judgement has major
implication for the way in
which Customs duties - the
Government’s main source of
revenue - is collected in
Freeport, as it opens the way
for all licensees to bring in
their inventory entirely bond-
ed, with no pre-payment of
duty.

The whole controversy sur-
rounding the payment of Cus-
toms duties in Freeport stems
from the fact that the Customs
Management Guide to the
Hawksbill Creek Agreement,
the very foundation on which
the Bahamas’ second city was
built, has never been set in
statute itself.

As a result, all Port Authoti-
ty licensees have developed
their own methods for dealing
with bonded goods and the
issue Of pre-paying and post- :
paying duties to Customs.

Bonded inventory is tax-free
if sold to GBPA licensees for
use in their own businesses.
On post-paid items, the stan-
dard practice that has evolved
is for licensees to go through
with Customs the items that
were sold upon which duty is .
payable, and then submit the
required amount on a certain
date each month:

Customs, though, has fre-
quently sought to clamp down
when it comes to bonded
goods, fearing the Govern-
ment conceded to much in the
Hawksbill Creek Agreement
and that the bond is open to
too much abuse - for example,
inventory brought in as bond-
ed by via Freeport and then
shipped directly to non-GBPA
licensees in Nassau, enabling
businesses to avoid duty pay-
ments.

Yet the courts have fre-
quently slapped Customs
down for exceeding its pow-
ers, or exercising those it does
not have in an arbitrary fash-
ion, when it comes to Freeport
and bonded goods.

Christopher Lowe, the
Grand Bahama Chamber of
Commerce’s president, is
among those who have urged
Customs to go after suspect-
ed individual bond abusers,
rather than attempt to unple-
ment ‘broad brush’ changes
that are then defeated in the
courts.

He and others have repeat-
edly called for Customs and
the Ministry of Finance to sit
down with the licensees and
the GBPA to resolve all the
issues surrounding bonded
goods to the satisfaction of all
concerned.

Mr Roberts said.

constantly run their generators
to accommodate their guests.

Mr Roberts said many of the

ment, seeking to attract cruise

Beka project has reached in
the government approvals
process, although The Tribune
had been told that the appli-
cations and all associated doc-
uments were about to be
resubmitted imminently.

The Tribune first revealed
the existence of the proposed
Beka project when the Christie
administration was in govern-
ment, but it never went any-
where after a furore over its

‘apparent desire to become ‘the

master planner’ for all Crown
Land in eastern Grand
Bahama, seemingly taking
over all land there.

Concerned

Mr Russell said yesterday
that at the time he was “seri-
ously concerned” about the
Beka project’s intentions and
designs on land in eastern
Grand Bahama. He indicated,
though, that his concerns had
been assuaged by the meeting,
the developers having
explained that the controversy
was caused after one of Beka’s
partner companies, Infinity
Partners, posted incorrect
information on its website.

Mr Russell added that the
initial proposal had involved
Beka seeking an “option to
buy one quarter of the area of
land in eastern Grand
Bahama”.

He said: “In Grand Bahama
right now, we would welcome

any positive developments that
cause our people to be able to
sustain themselves and their
families, whether it’s Fox-
woods, Beka or anyone else.”

The need for sustainable
economic development and
employment in eastern Grand
Bahama, Mr Russell said was
“bad, extremely bad”.

“Most of the people in East
End are fishermen, but there
are no fish around roight now,”
he said. ““They’re having a bad
time living off fish, and need
something to fall back on.

“It would boost the whole
economy of Grand Bahama. I
would like to see the develop-
ment of three economies on
Grand Bahama - East End,
West End and Freeport. If that
happens, Grand Bahama will
be safe for years to come.”

Mr Russell added of Beka
and Foxwoods: “They appear
to be legitimate investors, and
I am sure that when they send
their application in, the Gov-
ernment will do a search on
them to make sure they are fit
and proper people to come
into the Bahamas.”

Foxwoods, has already
signed a non-binding Letter of
Intent to act as the Royal Oasis
resort’s casino operator for
prospective purchaser, Har-
court Developments, although
other things have to fall into
place before the agreement
becomes ‘hard’. The Letter
currently just represents an
agreement in principle.

Foxwoods, as previously
reported by The Tribune, has
always been more interested
in the Beka project.

_ To establish good relations
with the former Christie gov-
ernment and smooth the path
for the Beka project, it was
understood to have indicated
its willingness to help out Har-
court on the Royal Oasis deal,
effectively having communi-
cated: ‘Come and see us when
you’re ready and we will help
you in any way we can’.

China boosts
2006 economic
erowth figure,
says reserves

up to $1.33 tn

@ By JOE McDONALD
AP Business Writer

BEIJING (AP) — China’s
sizzling economy grew even
faster in 2006 than previously
reported, bringing it closer to
overtaking Germany as the
world’s third-biggest, and its
export-fueled foreign reserves
have risen to a new high of
$1.33 trillion, according to offi-
cial figures released yesterday.

The announcements reflect
China’s stunning success but
could fuel fears of overheating
and prompt Beijing to boost
interest rates or tighten eco-
nomic controls to cool the
boom.

The National Bureau of Sta-
tistics raised its estimate of
China’s 2006 growth rate from
10.7 per cent to 11.1 per cent. It
nudged up its estimate of total
output to 21.1 trillion yuan
($2.705 trillion), bringing Chi-
na closer to overtaking Ger-
many as the world’s third-
largest economy after the Unit-
ed States and Japan.

The statistics agency rou-
tinely issues such revisions to
economic growth. rates. But the
latest report could receive spe-
cial attention from Chinese
leaders, who are trying to rein
in a boom that they worry
could ignite a financial crisis.

Chinese leaders want to
maintain fast growth to reduce

poverty but are trying to slow
investment in auto manufac-
turing, real estate and other
areas where supply outstrips
demand. They worry that run-
away spending could ignite
inflation or leave banks and
borrowers with dangerously
high debt levels.

In the most recent official
forecast, the central bank’s
research bureau said last
month the economy was
expected to expand by 10.8 per
cent this year. That was in line
with projections by the World
Bank and other economists,
and would be China’s fifth
straight year of growth in
excess of 10 per cent.

Wednesday’s revision con-
firmed the opinions of foreign
economists who said the earli-
er figure seemed too low, sug-
gesting the economy was slow-
ing despite surging exports and
other indicators.

The change comes amid
reports of double-digit growth
in industrial output, investment
and other economic indicators.

China’s trade surplus soared
to a new monthly high of $26.9
billion in June, the government
reported Tuesday. That was
despite official efforts to nar-
row the ballooning trade gap
by repealing rebates of value-
added taxes on exports.

The flood of export revenues
has forced the central bank to

drain billions of dollars a
month from the economy
through bond sales to reduce
pressure for prices to rise, pil-
ing up the money in United
States Treasurys and other for-
eign securities and helping to
finance Washington’s budget
deficit.

The reserves, already the
world’s largest, rose to $1.33
trillion at the end of June, a
41.6 per cent increase over the
same time last year, the offi-
cial Xinhua News Agency said,
citing the central bank.

The reserves soared by
$266.3 billion in the first six
months of this year, more than
in all of 2006, the bank said.

Beijing is creating a compa-
ny to make more profitable use
of the reserves through com-
mercial investments abroad.
Plans call for the company to
receive an initial injection of
$200 billion in government
money.

The statistics bureau’s brief
announcement said most ofthe
increase in China’s 2006 eco-
nomic output came from sec-
ondary industries, which
includes manufacturing, con-
struction and utilities.

The exact size of China’s
economy is a matter of debate,
with foreign analysts saying the
small statistics agency lacks the
resources to provide more than
a general estimate.

result, there has. not been as

this nation.

Reinsurers thus largely dic-

though 2006 was largely a cat-
astrophe-free year, losses aris-
ing from man-made or natural
disasters still hit $48 billion, of
which $16 billion was insured.

Mr Ward said yesterday that
maintaining reinsurance cov-
erage for risks in the Bahamas
would only be impacted if
there were a series of large
losses resulting from catastro-
phes elsewhere in the world,
not just in the Bahamas.

“If there’s another hit on the
Bahamas in isolation, I don’t
think it is going to have as
major an impact as a series of
Katrina, Wilma, Rita events,”
he said.

“JT am not sure it would gen-
erate a sufficiently large
enough loss to devastate the
reinsurance world...... But the
combined losses in other parts
[of the world] would defintely
have an impact.”

Settled

Meanwhile, Mr Ward said
Bahamas First had settled on
no method for expanding its
capital base, despite its chair-
man, Ian Fair, writing in the
company’s annual report that it
may have to consider increas-
ing capital to ensure prof-
itability and growth.

“We haven’t ereally fixed
our minds to any form of cap-
ital raising yet,” Mr Ward said.
“It is something we will pay

attention to, and the Board
give consideration to, in the
course of the next few
months.”

Message

He added that Mr Fair’s
statement had been a message
that “if we continue to grow,
this is something we have to
continually review in the light
of the requirements of A. M.
Best, and in light of our
requirements for an acceptable
ratio of capital to net written
premium.”

Bahamas First’s capital base
currently consists of $11 mil-
lion in debt instruments - $5
million in preference shares,
and a $6 million loan from
Bank of Butterfield. On the
loan, Mr Ward said it was an
option “kept open to the end
of the year”.

He added that it was “no
secret” that the business mod-
el Bahamas First was pursu-
ing, and which had influenced
its purchase of Carib Insurance
Agency, was to expand con-
trol of its distribution network
and keep more commission
revenue in-house on the
income statement.:

In this way, Bahamas First
would be able to ‘smooth out’
income fluctuations between
years when hurricanes were
absent, and when they
occurred.

US budget

eficit

drops to
S250bn

m@ By ANDREW TAYLOR
Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) —
The nation’s budget deficit will
drop to $205 billion in the fiscal
year that ends in September,
less than half of what it was at
its peak in 2004, according to
new White House estimates.

It’s also a gain over the $244
billion predicted by President
Bush in February, but not as
great an improvement as antic-
ipated by other forecasters.

Bush planned to discuss the
figures in an afternoon appear-
ance as the White House’s
Office of Management and
Budget as part of its midyear
update of the budget picture.

The deficit last year was
$248 billion and has closed in
recent years due to impressive
revenue growth from the
healthy economy. Bush and
Democrats in Congress have
both promised to erase the
deficit by 2012, though they
have greatly divergent views
on how to achieve the goal,
with Bush and Republicans
insisting on extension of his
2001 and 2003 tax cuts when
they expire at the end of 2010.

The latest figure is in gener-
ally in line with expectations,
as the early quarters of the
2007 fiscal year that began in
October had shown continued
revenue improvements. But
the pace of such revenue
growth has slowed more
recently, according to the Con-
gressional Budget Office.

CBO, which makes budget
predictions for Congress, has
estimated the deficit for the
ongoing budget year will range
from $150-200 billion.

The deficit peaked at $413
billion in 2004, though econo-
mists say the best way to mea-
sure the deficit is in relation to
the size of the economy. By
that standard, the current
deficit, at 1.5 per cent of gross
domestic product, is the lowest

‘since 2002.

Despite the improvements,
the deficit picture remains
worse than when Bush took
office six years ago. Then, both
White House and congres-
sional forecasters projected
cumulative surpluses of $5.6
trillion over the subsequent
decade.

But a revenue bubble burst,
a recession and the September

11, 2001, terrorist attacks
adversely affected the books.
Several rounds of tax cuts,
including Bush’s signature
$1.35 trillion 2001 tax cut, also
contributed to the return to
deficits in 2002 after four years
of budget surpluses.

“Nothing in the administra-
tion’s deficit announcement
changes the failed fiscal record
of President Bush,” said Senate
Budget Committee Chairman
Kent Conrad, D-N.D. “He has
increased spending by nearly
50 per cent since taking office,
while at the same time repeat-
edly cutting taxes primarily on
the wealthiest.”

consumers are required to pay an average price of $3.04 - an increase of
289.74 percent! More recently, an escalating trend in the average price of
a 3lb bag of onions has been noted for the last 3 years.

Bahamians urged to push for National Energy legislation

duce electricity as a way to
reduce their dependence on

fossil fuel or reduce their
greenhouse gas footprint, there
are a few options,” Mr Henry
said.

“First, they should write a
letter this week to two people -
their local member of parlia-
ment, and also the Minister of
Works, Earl Deveaux, on JFK
Drive - indicating their sup-
port for a new national energy
policy, which is currently being
drafted as legislation to revise
the 1950s era laws now in
effect.”

He added that the letter
should specifically request a
policy that allows for grid-con-
nected, renewable energy gen-
eration by customers, with a
fair buy-back of electricity
from customers.

“This would mean that any
homeowner could legally

install solar panels at their
home, have their system
inspected by licensed electri-
cians and BEC, and both sell
electricity to BEC during the
day (when the home is mak-
ing excess solar electricity), and
also buy back electricity from
BEC at night (when the home
is not producing its own elec-
tricity),” he said.

Mr Henry pointed out that
this wouldn't keep the home
running during power outages,
unless the homeowner also
invested in a large battery bank
or back-up generator, nor
would this group of customers
make up more than about 2
per cent of the total electricity

this nation’s flag would be tar-

generated in the Bahamas, so
BEC would continue to play
as important a role as ever.

“It is a step toward keeping
some of the money that the
working people of the
Bahamas earn from leaving the
country to buy diesel to burn
for electricity,” Mr Henry said.

“Second, they can write a
letter to the Inter-American
Development Bank on East
Bay Street. This organisation is
funding studies that will inform
government on energy options
for this new legislation.

He also invited Bahamians
to learn more about the work
that Cape Systems is doing
towards renewable energy.

Mr Sanderman said the
Bahamas Maritime Authority
was committed to enforcing
the highest quality standards
in its fleet.

Despite the ranking, he said
it was not leaving anything to
chance, and will continue to
enforce high standards.

Ricardo Delaney, the

BMA’s ship inspector sta-
tioned between Nassau and
Grand Bahama, added that the
MOUs provide a yardstick for
the quality that ships coming
into international ports should
have. ;
He explained that there
were a number of safety,
health and structural qualifi-
cations each vessel must have,
not only to protect the crew,
but the residents of the ports
they are entering.

Mr Delaney further
explained that in most cases,
ships on a particular registry
may be inspected once every
six months. However, in the
case of a targeted registry,
inspectors may choose to con-

Mr Henry explained that
renewable electricity made
directly from wind and
sun is often used in the same
place that it is made, so less is
wasted by moving the electric-
ity to where it is needed.

“But the most efficient and
cost-effective renewable ener-
gy systems, those without bat-
tery back-up, depend on a reli-
able current from the grid to
be up and running so they can
operate,” Mr Henry said.

“As a safety precaution, our
solar panels do not send out
electricity ont o the grid when
there is a general power out-
age, so linemen fixing the
problem are protected.”

The Paris MOU consists of

27 participating maritime |

administrations, and covers the
waters of the European coastal
states and the North Atlantic
basin from North America to
Europe. It aims to eliminate
the operation of sub-standard
ships through a harmonised
system of port State control.
The Bahamas is currently
the third largest shipping reg-
istry in the world, and has
grown to more than 1,500 ves-
sels weighing collectively more
than 27 million gross tons .
Among ships flying the
Bahamian flag are Chevron,
Exxon International, Maersk
Line, Cunard Lines, Texaco,

Holland-America Cruises,

Finnlines, Teekay Shipping,
Lauritzen Reefers, Smit Inter-
national and the East Asiatic
Company. The Bahamas is
number one in cruise ship reg-
istry, and has more passenger
ships listed on its registry than
any other jurisdiction.

THE TRIBUNE





Ex-Bahamas firm owner
makes $2.4m settlement

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

he former co-own-
er of a Bahamas-
based financial ser-
vices provider has
agreed to hand over $2.4 mil-
lion in assets to settle an invol-
untary bankruptcy petition
brought against him by the
president of an investment
fund that collapsed owing
investors some $214 million.
‘Jon Knight, who was well-
known in the Bahamas as a
shareholder and co-owner of
International Portfolio Ana-
lytics IPA), has agreed to sign
over four properties, a horse
farm and 30-foot boat that he
owns to Bill Cuthill, former

. trustee for bankrupt invest-

ment fund, Evergreen Security.

In a statement, Mr Cuthill
said the settlement was related
to a court-approved involun-
tary bankruptcy petition that
he had filed against Mr Knight
in a bid to collect and enforce a
judgement against him.

He added: “Mr Knight has
agreed to deed over two hous-
es in Florida, two, houses in
Georgia, a horse farm in Geor-
gia and a 30-foot boat. These
have a fair market value of $2.4
million.”

The settlement had been
approved by both the steering
committee representing Ever-
green’s creditors and the US
District Court for the Middle
District of Florida, and both
the properties and boat are
due to be sold to realise sums
for the fund’s investors within
the coming months.

Mr Cuthill, though, said he
was “vigorously pursuing col-
lection” from Anthony Hug-
gins, Mr Knight’s fellow co-
owner and shareholder in
Bahamian-incorporated IPA.

In response to litigation filed
against Mr Huggins, Mr Knight
and another company they
controlled, a Bahamian-incor-
porated International Business
Company (IBC) called Matae-
ka Ltd, the US court ordered
that they pay $7.9 million to
Evergreen plus post-judgement
interest. A further $2.5 million
judgement against IPA’s par-
ent firm, Atlantic Portfolio
Analytics and Management
(APAM), was also entered by
the court, bringing the total
damages awarded to $10.4 mil-
lion.

Meanwhile, Mr Cuthill said

he had also received $1.1 mil-
lion from Gray Robinson, the
US law firm representing Mr
Huggins, which transferred to
him funds it was holding on
Huggins’ behalf for the benefit
of Mataeka.

Mr Cuthill had previously
filed a lawsuit against Gray
Robinson, alleging that Matae-
ka, the Bahamian IBC, had
transferred $1.54 million to the
US law firm on November 27,
2002, to be held in trust in a
segregated account to cover
Huggins’ legal expenses relat-
ing to the Evergreen case.

The remaining $1.1 million
balance was paid to Mr Cuthill,
and he is now seeking some
$510,169 in legal fees and
expenses from those trust
funds, which were disbursed to
cover Huggins’ legal fees.

Mr Cuthill explained that he
had “filed suit against Gray
Robinson for paying over
$500,000 in fees to themselves
with money held in trust for
Mr Huggins for the benefit of
Mataeka. A trial date has not
been set, but should be later
this summer or the fall”.

He added that he had “filed
a motion for sanctions against
Gray Robinson and Peter
Ginsberg, Knight’s counsel, for
over $540,000. This motion
should be heard this summer”.

“The involuntary bankrupt-
cy cases against Mr Huggins,
Mr Knight and APAM are still
pending. Mr Huggins is vigor-
ously defending his case. Mr
Knight has settled with the
trustee. APAM has no assets,
but may have one or two law-
suits to recover fees paid to
law firms who represented Mr
Huggins and Mr Knight in
their criminal trials,” Mr
Cuthill said.

Mr Knight had previously
pled guilty to grand larceny

him in the Manhattan District
Court in relation to Evergreen

case.

Although neither served jail
time, they did serve probation
and were fined.

The Manhattan District
Court lawsuit had alleged that
in late 1997 that the IPA duo
took a $6.5 million loan from
Evergreen, “ostensibly in part
to pay off an earlier $2 million
loan”. ;

The $6.5 million was then
allegedly transferred to Matae-
ka Ltd, which was “wholly-
owned” by Huggins and
Knight, and described as 4
“Bahamian-based holding
company that had no assets
and no real business interests”,

The indictment alleged:
“The defendants used Matae-
ka Ltd as a conduit to pay off
the earlier $2 million, and
channelled the remaining $4
million to other entities, keep-
ing $500,000 for themselves.

“The defendants used
Mateaka to pay back the orig-
inal $2 million loan to Ever-
green from the $6.5 million
that Evergreen lent out, kept
$500,000 for themselves and
transferred $400,000 to Amer-
ican Bond Partners (ABP):
ABP, an Orlando, Florida-
based financial services admin-
istrative company, was oper-
ated [by Mr Boyd and Mr
Spencer]; the money was used
to buy. a corporate jet [fox
them].”

Huggins and Knight alleged!
ly then transferred $3.6 million
from the $6.5 million loan to
Perdido PCS Servicios, a Cos-
ta-Rican shell firm.

The Manhattan District
Attorney’s office added: “Ulti-
mately, because of the terms
of a buy back agreement
signed by the Evergreen
trustees, Evergreen had to for- ©
give Mataeka’s obligations to

_ repay $4 million of the $6. 5

million loan.”
