trina demands govt
build new facility

@ By BRENT DEAN
Tribune Staff Reporter

THE new FNM government
was faced with its first protest
yesterday when more than 50
straw vendors gathered outside
the House of Assembly
demanding that the government
build a new straw market on
Bay Street and improve the



- temporary structure that exists.

Traffic slowed through down-
town Nassau, as motorists.and
passers-by glanced at the plac-
ards and listened to the vendors
sing the hymn: “We shall not
be moved.”

Spokesperson for the vendors
and woodcartvers coalition Tela-

tor Strachan told The Tribune ~

that the vendors have three
main issues they wish to

communicate to the govern- |

ment.

The first is that vendors will
not accept a move to the Prince
- George Dock warehouse} sec-
ondly, vendors would like a new
tent to replace the temporary
covering, along with upgrades

to the temporary site such as a

_ cooling system; and thirdly, the

vendors want government to
build the new market on the
original Bay Street site.

Ms Strachan said that ven-
dors. have only had one meeting
with the minister responsible
fot the market construction,
Earl Deveatix, since the FNM
caine to power, with a subse-
quent meeting being cancelled
by the minister.

“We don’t know why we «u:

haven’t heard from him,” she

said.

The vendors, Ms Strachan —
continued, need to know “what

is happening with our liveli-.
hood.” .

Ms Strachan brought three
petitions signed by 300 vendors
and wood carvers intending to
present it to Prime Minister
Ingraham, Mr Deveaux and the
leader of the opposition.

However, the prime minister,
who was leaving yesterday to
attend the Caricom heads of

Airport union executives file
injunction against president

fi By ALISON LOWE

Tribune Staff Reporter __

- ABOUT half of the executive officers of the Airport, Airlines and
Allied Workets Union have filed an injunction against the president of
the union for allegedly acting contrary to the union’s constitution by
seeking to have certain officers removed.

Secretary-general Anthony Bain, treasurer Susan Palmer, two
trustees and a chief shop steward, claim the president, Nelerene Hard-
ing, is threatening trade-unionism in the Bahamas by seeking to have



the executive body dissolved one year into a three year term.

Russell calls NIB meeting after
continued complaints by staff.

@ By BRENT DEAN
Tribune Staff Reporter



THE mounting claims of
worker dissatisfaction with the
management at the National
Insurance Board — which
include sexual harassment alle-
gations — has led the minister
responsible to call a special
meeting at the department.

spoken with The Tribune over
the last few weeks accusing cer-
tain managers of repeated ver-
bal abuse of staff and illegiti-
mate transfers, while another
manager has been accused of
intimidating staff who do not
agree to provide’ sexual
favours.

ranging from $4,500, to $40,000,

rather than merit — which have
now led workers to appéal to
the cabinet for intervention. *

employee said yesterday tit “i

morale at NIB is “very low”.

“T been. working for the
National Insurance Board for
30 years, and I never experi-
enced this kind of torture,”
another employee said several
days ago.

Yet another frustrated staff

member told The Tribune: “We
feel as if the PLP is still in pow-
er. We ain’t feel like the gov-
ernment changed. Because all
these things that was happening
under them, still are happening.”

This source said that the staff
is not advocating the firing of
any managers, but they are

. demanding some “justice.”




Kenneth Russell, the minis-
fer responsible for NIB,
cknowledged that he has
eceived some of these com-
laints, but said that he needs to
hear both sides before he can
decide what needs to be done to

‘solve the problems.

“I do have some concerns
with NIB. Those concerns will
be placed on the table at the
meeting (today),” he said.

Mr Russell told The Tribune
that it is an open meeting and
workers are encouraged to pub-
licly voice their complaints so
that he can evaluate them with
the managers present.

“If they don’t come and pre-
sent their case then I am put in
a bind because now I got to go
and do a full investigation and
everything else on individuals
and so forth, to-see if what Iam

being told by individuals in the

privacy of my office, ar some-
where else, whether it is true or

not,” he said.

“No one has expressed any
sexual harassment to me,” Mr
Russell continued. But he
acknowledged receiving com-
plaints about how transfers and
promotions were handled.

as it relates to Grand Bahama,
Pineridge MP Kwasi Thomp-



. son said yesterday... o<
Giving his contribution to the
debate on the Speéch from the

Throne in parliaméat yesterday
morning, Mr Thoritpson said
that it is “evident that Grand
Bahama, like the previous 10
years of the FNM administra-
tion will be a priority for this
government.”

Mr Thompson also praised

the focus that was given to the

tourism sector in the Speech
from the Throne.

He said that the Ministry: of
Tourism has already started to

_ implement a plan of action to
‘revive Grand

Jahama’s tourism
industry.

Addressing other areas of —
employment in Grand Bahama,
the Pinetidge MP said that spe-
cific attention must be paid to
the revival of the island’s suf-
fering economy.

“There are unacéeptable lev-
els of unemployment and
under-employement,” he said.

Mr Thompson said that the

bring a $300,000 “injection” to

. the lives of Grand Bahamians.

He further noted that in the
Speech, the government recog-
nised the need to create jobs
and expand Bahamian owner-
ship of the economy.

In Grand Bahama, and the

Test offthe country, he said, peo-

ple are especially looking for- ©

ward to the announced simpli-
fication of the process of obtain-
ing business licences.

“In Pineridge, like the rest of
the Bahamas, we have many
persons who have innovative
ideas and wish to move from
idea to profit-making business.
The procedure unfortunately
can be technical, See
and: long.

“The policy of providing an
omnibus business licence will
no doubt assist small businesses
who wish to move from one
area to another or who wish to
expand,” he said.

Bahamians, he said, can also
look forward to legislation that

. simplifies the government loan

guarantee programme for small
and medium sized businesses.
“Constituents, Grand
Bahamians and Bahamians as
a whole have complained about
the complicated process to
obtain a government guaran-
teed loan for small businesses.
“We have talked about diver-
sifying our economy, to this end
Bahamians must be empowered

to create their own economic.
opportunities,” he said.

Employess
reported in
protest at First
Caribbeam

LATE yesterday afternoon,
The Tribune received uncon-
firmed reports that employees
at all First Caribbean branches
staged a protest in connection
with salary issues.

Bank customers called in
claiming that all employees
came to work wearing casual
clothing instead of their stan-
dard uniforms.

The Bahamas Financial Ser-
vices Union, who represents
bank employees, would not
deny or confirm that a protest
had taken place.

“We choose to reserve com-
ment at this time,” the union’s
treasurer, Linda Evans said yes-
terday.

“I go to the First Caribbean ©

banks all the time and have nev-
er seen anything like it, some-
thing must be going on,” one
customer said.

Another customer claimed
that she was told by employees
that they were protesting over
salary issues.

Despite the alleged protest,
customers yesterday received
normal service at the bank.

The Tribune was unable to
contact First Caribbean man-
agement as the reports about
the protest were made after
banking hours.

Haitian police
say DEA

@ HAITI
Port-au-Prince

HAITIAN police said Tues-
day that US Drug Enforcement
Administration agents carried
out an operation in the
Caribbean country but did not
confirm reports that the target
was an ex-rebel leader alleged-
ly linked to drug trafficking,
according to Associated Press.

National Police spokesman
Frantz Lerebours told Associ-
ated Press that the DEA
worked in conjunction with
Haitian anti-drug agents Mon-
day in the southern coastal town
of Les Cayes, home to former
rebel leader Guy Philippe.

Private broadcaster Radio
Metropole reported Monday
night that agents captured
Philippe after swooping in on
his home with five helicopters
and two planes. But the station
later changed its report and said
he was still being sought.

DEA officials and the US
Embassy in Port-au-Prince have
declined to comment. The US
drug agency has conducted
operations in Haiti in the past.

Lerebours said DEA and Hait-
ian anti-drug officers also arrest-
ed local businessman Lavaud
Francois on Monday in the north-
western town of Gonaives, a grit-
ty port town considered to be a
base for drug traffickers.

Gray criticises government
over response to crime rate

@ By PAUL TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter

FORMER PLP cabinet min-
ister Alfred Gray launched an
all out attack on the govern-
ing FNM yesterday, criticising
the party for their response to
the escalating crime rate.

Mr Gray’s comments caused
him to clash with Minister of
National Security Tommy
Turnquest. It was one of many
angry exchanges that erupted
in a heated morning session of
the House of Assembly.

Mr Gray, who labelled the
FNM a “minority govern-
ment”, mocked’ the FNM’s
campaign slogan “It’s a Mat-
ter of Trust” stating that they
can only be “trusted to do one
thing — victimise.

“You can trust them to
destroy the lives of people,
especially who they think don’t
support them. You can trust
this FNM government to
destroy everything that is good
so long as they had little or
nothing to do with it. Destruc-
tion is their first name. And I
say you can trust them to do
that.

“Mr Speaker, deceit is
almost a sinful word. Crime
in our country is not a politi-
cal issue. I have said it from
the day I entered parliament.
The FNM, though, caused the
Bahamian people to believe
that they had the answers.
And they accepted that lock,
stock, and barrel to only hear
the minister say now that
unfortunately we don’t have
the answers!” Mr Gray
exclaimed.

He said that under the FNM,
crime has only got worse. The
MICAL MP said that “victim-
isation, hate, and spite” can-

not be avoided by the FNM.
“Mr Speaker, I came out of
the belly of Christie, Ingraham
and Co and I know those two
men (PLP leader Perry
Christie, and FNM leader
Hubert Ingraham) like nobody
else in this parliament does.
“And I can tell you when it
comes to spite, you can not dis-
agree with the leadership of
the FNM and don’t get



@ ALFRED Gray

destroyed if he could destroy
you. That’s the nature of the
man,” he said.

Mr ‘Gray added that the
FNM has started its adminis-
tration with victimisation and
has not stopped yet.

He drew attention to some
police officers who he said had
been removed from the
Tourism Patrol division.

This caused Minister of

We applaud Speaker Smith

LEGISLATORS had barely got their feet
under the debating table of the House of
Assembly yesterday morning when one of
their number was threatened with expulsion by
the Speaker. ;

Obviously, newly appointed Speaker Alvin
Smith is on a mission to restore decorum,
respect and dignity to House debates.

Parliamentarians complain of the lack of
respect among this nation’s youth, but fail to
set an example in their televised debates.

“How can you discipline your children
when the country’s leaders show no respect for
themselves, or the Speaker?” asked a com-
plaining parent. “Instead of discussing the
people’s business they end up brawling among
themselves. Having this example set at the
top, what can ‘you expect from those at the
bottom?”

That is a good question.

Yesterday’s argument started when newly
elected Montagu MP Loretta Butler-Turner
drew it to the Speaker’s attention that Golden
Gates MP Shane Gibson was using his laptop
computer. It was her understanding that mem-
bers were not allowed to use electronic equip-
ment in the House. The Speaker asked him to
desist.

Mr Gibson protested. He claimed that the
laptop was just sitting in front of him on the
table. However, in an obvious act of provoca-
tion he defied the Speaker by opening his
computer and starting to fiddle with it.

The Speaker then ordered him from the ~

Chamber for the rest of the day. Again Mr
Gibson challenged the Speaker’s authority by
refusing to leave. As can be expected, there
was an uproar.

Tommy Turnquest, leader of government
business in the House, asked for a five minute
recess. Speaker Smith, Mr Turnquest and Dr
Bernard Nottage, opposition leader of gov-
ernment business in the House, left the cham-
ber. On their return Mr Gibson was quick to
apologise.

Although his apology was dripping with
sarcasm, at least it was an apolo

The electronic debate should have been
settled last month when Mr Gibson again
made a mockery of the House by answering
calls on his Blackberry while on his feet debat-
ing the Budget. During his debate, Mr Gibson
stopped mid-sentence to answer his Black-
berry and read to the House a text message
sent from a member of the public, commenting
on the points he was making in his debate.

When it came time yesterday for the lpm
lunch break, the question was put to the
House that they break for lunch. No debate
starts on this motion, members usually give the
impression that they are just waiting to bolt for
the door. But yesterday a debate was started.
Speaker Smith paid no attention. He rose,
descended from the Chair, and in Speaker’s
procession left the House. He did it so quick-
ly and with such deliberation that members
hadn’t an opportunity to show their respect by
rising to their feet ashe left. —

This is one Speaker who has made it obvi-
ous that he does not intend to entertain any
childish games.

Only one of a small group who used to sit
nibbling food during debate in the last parlia-
ment has been returned to the Chamber. Obvi-
ously this obnoxious discourtesy will no longer
be tolerated by this Speaker. If a member is a
diabetic, and needs'a bite of sustenance, he or
she can discreetly leave the chamber.

Also banned will be the off-colour e-mail
jokes that were often passed around the table
by a certain member. And what about the
pair who scanned pornographic web sites
instead of listening to the debate? These per-
sons are no longer in the House, but just in
case any newcomers get the same bright idea,

‘they should ban the thought.

When the lunchtime newscast came on yes-
terday and reported on Mr Gibson and his
laptop, it was interesting to hear the indig-
nant reaction of several maids. “We ain’t pay
him to go to the House to play with his com-
puter,” said one. “What he got his computer in
the House for?” asked another. These two
ladies were angry at their representatives not
giving their full attention to the people’s busi-
ness.

' The disapproving eye of the public will
now be focused on laptops in the House.

We also expect to see the end of those friv-

olous points of order, which served no useful ~

purpose except to interrupt a speaker’s train of
thought and extend the debate. One member
who was particularly adept at this has taken
the practice to another place.

In the last House PLP parliamentarians
rewrote the House’s rule book. Obviously,
they did not expect to be in Opposition

_ because it-is written especially to curb the

opposition.

We applaud Speaker Smith for his deter-
mination to restore dignity to the Chamber.
We encourage him to strictly enforce the new

this nation back
from the monsters
we have created?

EDITOR, The Tribune.

THE singing prophet sang
“too much murder” this is
what we as a nation are grap-
pling with today. But no one
seems to have a solid solution
or we claim to be baffled at
what we have become.

As a teenager in the early
seventies one was taught to
respect all living things. Daily
chores, Sunday school, thanks,
no thanks and prayer before
bed was a MUST in most
every home on my block. Vio-
lence was something that was
joked or bragged about after it
happened, it almost never
escalated into anything seri-
ous, much less murder. There
were times when there was a
lot of rock and bottle throw-
ing, if one had a bad experi-
ence in a particular area and
was foolish enough to pass
through that corner. But no
one ever looked up anyone for
being chased out of their
neighbourhood, with the intent
to shoot or stab them to death.
We all knew the value of life
and respected that and feared
even the thought or conversa-
tion of killing someone. If you
spoke of killing on the blocks
setting, you would be told
“Boy you mussie crazy, I outa
here” and you would not have
any backup.

- There was ganja selling and
smoking all over, but if Mr or

‘Mrs Jones is passing every-

thing is put on hold until they
pass, that was respect and the
fear of this reaching home.
Monies from the sale of ganja
never made, the many that
sold it very rich, so the loss of
being ripped off never had the
effect of losing so much that
you would want to kill for.

Then came the eighties
along with it cocaine, some-
thing only a few knew about,
back in the late seventies, it
was one of those well kept
secrets.

But like we all know word
travels fast especially when lots
of money is involve, everyone
was turning their heads and
making bread, turning their
backs and making lots of cash.
This was from the politician,
church pastors, policemen,
bankers, grandparents, parents
and yes, the children.

But they were not ready for
the side effects, in came crack
cocaine, everyone was smok-

_ ing it, even grandma and

ed our neighbours to the south.
Now with nobody looking after
the country other things,
including immigration got out
of hand, everybody want the
lavish lifestyle that was going
around. Bahamians got so
greedy they were killing their
neighbours to the far south and
taking their drugs and those
people came here and took
lives.

More than half of this coun-
try knew what was going on,
but greed cast a bright picture
on things “lavish house, pool,
nice furnishing, fat bank
account and fancy cars.” The
majority in this country were
too busy to be neighbourly and
it became a dog-eat-dog world,
in some homes parents were
fighting children for drugs,
accepting monies and gifts
from children who they knew
sold drugs, drugs even been
hidden in the church and pas-
tors receiving monies for it,
bankers allowing large sums to
be deposited knowing it to be
blood money. The family
home as we knew it was com-
pletely turned upside down,
with no love and respect in the
homes and kids not learning
the meaning of forgiveness and
the integration of foreign influ-
ence into these street gangs,
meant that we have a new bred
of Bahamian youths. Youths
who are taught you have to
take what you want and die
trying to take it and if there is
resistance it is kill or be killed.

What baffles me is when I
see the hypocrites on televi-
sion and newspapers question-
ing what is going on with the
youths of this nation, this is
what corruption breeds and

‘this is just the beginning. These

youngsters need jobs, some-
thing to do, other than walking
around with their pants below
their hips and talking about
how many women and guns
they have and who they will
shoot or stab if they look at
them the wrong way.

Drastic measures need to be
taken, this is not the time to
be nice, sympathy is something
these young men are not look-
ing for, power is what they

yearn for, so power has to con- °

Cancer
screenings
to be held
in Bimini

THE Cancer Society of the
Bahamas will hold prostate and
cervical cancer screenings ses-
sion in Bimini next month.

According to the society,
screenings are being held every
month on a different island.

Prostate and cervical cancer
screenings were held in San Sal-
vador earlier this month, and
previous screenings were held
in Long Island, Exuma,
Eleuthera, Cat Island. Screen-
ings will be held in October in
Abaco.

The screenings are carried
out at local clinics. Doctors will
offer free breast examinations
and pap smears for women and
free prostate specific antigen
(PSA) screening for the men.

September is Prostate Can-
cer Awareness Month and
October is Breast’ Cancer
Awareness Month.

US says Cuban
constraints
made visa quota
impossible

HAVANA

The US said Tuesday it will
not be able to meet the quota of
20,000 visas it distributes to
Cubans each year, complaining
that Havana has “placed unrea-
sonable constraints” on Ameri-
can diplomats on the island.

The announcement came sev-
eral hours after Cuba’s Foreign
Ministry chided Washington for
issuing visas too slowly, sug-
gesting the delay was a delib-
‘erate attempt to destabilize its
government.

“The Government of Cuba
has failed to authorise the nec-
essary personnel and materials
the US Interests Section needs
to function effectively,” the US
Interests Section in Havana said
in a statement e-mailed to jour-
nalists.

It accused Cuba of denying

visas to Interest Section per- °

sonal, failing to approve hirings

to fill 47.staff vacancies and ,,

blocking the importation of
materials and supplies.
How many visas the US will
issue for Cubans was unclear,
~ and an Interest Section official
declined to give more details.
_ Under a 1994 accord meant
to discourage Cubans from
attempting dangerous and ille-
gal sea voyages to America,
Washington has used a lottery
system to grant visas to.at least
20,000 Cubans each fiscal year
ending September 30.

Earlier Tuesday, Cuba’s For-

eign Ministry issued a statement
complaining that through June
30, only 10,724 Cubans had
been granted visas — just over
half the annual minimum.

Tribune Freeport Reporter

FREEPORT - Like a
phoenix rising from the ash-
es, the Atlantis II will once
again set sail on a new era of
historical research and explo-
ration — 10 years after it was
retired.

A small group of persons
gathered at the Freeport Har-
bour on Wednesday evening
for the historical re-christening
of the ship, which underwent a
complete $3.2 million restora-
tion at the shipyard in Grand
Bahama.

Instead of the traditional
ceremonial champagne chris-
tening, City of Freeport chief
councillor Anita Doherty, who
performed the official re-chris-
tening with assistance of Cap-
tain Gray Henrikson, broke a
bottle of Kalik across the

ship’s bow after the cham-
pagne bottle accidentally
slipped from her hand over-
board after two failed
attempts to break it.

Father Canon Harry Bain
blessed the vessel, which dis-
played the raised flags of the
United States of America and
the Bahamas.

Ministry of Tourism officials
and several residents were also
on hand for the ceremony.

Gordon Hunsucker, the
owner of Atlantis II, said the
occasion was one of historical
significance not only for the
vessel, but also for the
Bahamas.

“This is a very historic
event. This ship, which was
originally built back 1962 and
has had a very famous history,
is one of the most famous
ships in the scientific and
marine community.





ye ee bE RS

@ THE Atlantis

“For this to take place here in
the Bahamas, where the ship is
being re-christened, is very his-
torical,” he said.

Atlantis IT was originally built

for the Wood Hole Oceano-
graphic Institute (WHOI) for
research and exploration.

It has been around the world
nine times and has logged more

miles — over one million — at sea
than any other research vessel
in history.

The Atlantis II was involved
with the first sighting of the
Titanic. After 33 years, the ship
was retired in 1996. It was sold
to a private party who was °
about to sell it for scrap when
Mr Hunsucker purchased it last
year.

Mr Hunsucker said the newly
restored vessel is in better shape
than it ever was. “We wanted
to re-christen the ship again to
start a new era of exploration
and adventure that will be going
worldwide.”

He said the ship is currently a
US registered vessel. It is about
210 feet long and 44 feet wide.
It is equipped with an explorer’s
lounge, a gym, an extensive dive
walker, two laboratories, retail
space, and a first-class dining
room with a fireplace.

Collie defends calling of Hope Town elections

@ By BRENT DEAN
Tribune Staff Reporter

THE Minister of Lands and
Local Government has
defended his government’s
decision to hold local govern-
ment elections for the Hope
Town Council — arguing that
two councillors were never
properly appointed by the
PLP. government.

Mr Collie told the House that -

there is no record at his min-
istry of the official instruments
of appointment for the two local
councillors that have become
the centre of controversy.

“The only appointment that
could have taken place could
be or would be, by verbal, or
word of mouth,” he said.

Former minister of Local
Government Alfred Gray has
declared that he appointed
Chris and Joe Albury after
only one person nominated
for the three posts in the last
local election, as was his
authority under the law.

In response to Mr Collie’s
latest claim, Mr Gray said:
“Two members under the act
were appointed by this minis-
ter. No community has a right
to. change what the law says.
They may request an election,
but when an election was
called two months before that,

nobody nominated. And so an
abuse of the system was being
sought,” he said.

“JT did not permit it,” Mr
Gray added.

On Tuesday, Chief Coun-
cillor Jeremy Sweeting blasted
the government for calling

~ new elections for the two seats

before the end of the term.

“Unfortunately, in the last .

week, the ministry of local
government under the direc-
tion of Prime Minister Ingra-
ham, is in the process of firing
two councillors on our council,
and hold elections for the two
members. | find this an act of
complete political motivation
and skullduggery of the high-
est order,” he said. :

Mr Sweeting declared that
Mr Collie is only following the
wishes of the prime minister,
and that the move to oust
Messrs Albury comes from a
politically motivated group.

Section 18 of the Local
Government Act gives the
minister the authority to call
elections when councillors are
appointed, rather than elected.

However, the same section
of the Act does not compel the
minister to call an election, if

for example a petition is cir ;
culated, which was doné ‘itr’
2006 by 120 of the 200 eligible’

voters for the council posts, ";

‘according to Associated Press.

There, the press was official-

. ly introduced to Admiral James

Stavridis, commander of the
Southern Command of the
United States Navy.

Also present were Peter
Deveaux-Isaacs, deputy per-
manent secretary in the Min-

istry of National Security; Dr
Brent Hardt, Chargé d’ Affaires
at the US Embassy, and David
Foran, narcotics affairs officer at
the embassy.

’ Earlier, Admiral Stavridis
paid a courtesy call on Prime
Minister Hubert Ingraham.

Praise

Calling the admiral a “great
friend of the Bahamas”, Mr
Turnquest noted that the naval
officer has been very helpful
in assisting the Bahamas in
Operation Enduring Friend-
ship.

Mr Turnquest said the dona-
tion of the vessels fits “perfect-
ly” with the government's poli-
cies on crime and counter nar-
cotics.

“We are very concerned

about the level of crime and the
need to deal with it.

“We are also concerned
about the trafficking of nar-
cotics; we are concerned about
the movement of illegal
migrants and apprehension of
them before they land.

“We are also pleased with the
level of co-operation that we
have received; we’ve always had
an excellent relationship with
the United States of America,”
Mr Turnquest said.

With The Bahamas being a
“staunch ally” in the war on
drugs, Admiral Stavridis said,
the US will “continue to work
with you on a variety of pro-
grammes to enhance both your
security and our security.”

However, Admiral Stavridis

‘warned, criminals will also be
working to devise new strate- .

gies to elude authorities.

260 tons of cocaine seized
last year en route to US

LAST year, 260 metric tons
of cocaine was intercepted en
route to ‘the United States
through the Bahamas..

The bulk of the drugs was dis-
covered through the collabora-
tion between the RBDF and
Operation Bahamas, America,
Turks and Caicos (OPBAT)
programme...

“We havea very strong pro-
gramme and coopération in
place with the Defence Force

“here,” said Admiral Stavridis,

commander of the Southern

-Command of the United States
Navy. “We have very recently

managed to cofiiect: intelligence

efforts opératirig out of our joint
interagency task force in Key

West (Florida), with the
OPBAT efforts:here.

_“If you chip away at anything
and keep working. and adding
intelligence to the problem, you
would start to get some wins,’
he said.

The admiral noted that there
has been a “dramatic upsurge”
in the flights carrying cocaine
from the north coast of South
America into the island of His-
paniola, which is comprised of
Haiti and the Dominican
Republic.

‘the United States, the govern-

ments of Haiti and of the

a sting, ‘Operation Rum Punch’,

which was specifically designed
to interdict aircraft after they
land or drop their cargos.

“This has been very success-

‘ful through the spring and sum-

mer and we intend to continue
that,” the admiral said, adding
that what “gets through suc-

cessfully to Hispaniola, of

course travels by sea and poten-
tially can come. through. the
Bahamas.”

A trend is: also: emerging }:
where drugs are being trafficked”

through Western Africa and
into Europe, said Admiral
Stavridis, adding that govern-
ments in those areas are co-
operating with the US and the
Caribbean.

them to represent the govern-

“The government is not
minded to chase them to Prince
George Dock. That’s always
been their choice and their
option — one of the options we
put before them,” he said.

Mr Deveaux said the govern-
ment has only made one deci-
sion regarding the market. and
that was to cancel the contract

Straw vendors
stage protest

When asked why government
terminated the contract, Mr
Deveaux said that the primary
reason was “money.”

“When we took office and
got a feel for what we needed to
do with the country’s infra-
structure, we did not think it
fair to allocate $23 million, or
possibly $30 million to a single
building without taking stock
of all the other things we have
to do,” he said.

The $23 million expenditure,
Mr Deveaux said, would have
accounted for nearly half the
capital budget of his ministry
for one year.

“We did not think that that
was an option we wanted to
exercise this early in our term,”
he said.

Mr Deveaux did not say how
much money was reasonable to
be spent on the market, but he
said that a cabinet subcommit-
tee on the market construction
is set to report to cabinet in 90
days.

When asked if government
will build a market on Bay
Street, Mr Deveaux merely
said— quoting the FNM mani-
festo — that his government is
committed to building a straw

market. He did not specify
where.

A vendor told The Tribune
that the government’s rchash-
ing of the planned moved to
Prince George Dock after all
the work and planning that
went into the site on Bay Street
is “foolishness”.

“We are not yo-yos. We are
human beings — educated
human beings,” she said.

“It’s not fair what they are

doing to us. They are not treat-
ing the straw vendors with jus-
tice,” she said.

“This is not a political situa-
tion. There are persons here
that support him (the prime
minister),” another male ven-
dor declared.

PLP Deputy leader, Cynthia
Pratt, with six other PLP MPs
spoke with the vendors, and she
told the press:

“The people are concerned.

They have mortgages, they have
school fees, they have bills to
pay.

“They are concerned with
their future. And so I want it
to be clear to me what’s going
to happen to the vendors. I
believe that’s why they are here.
They have a right to know
where their future is, what’s
going to happen to them tomor-
row...they are taxpayers just like
all of us.”

Richard Curry, sales manager
at Lightbourn Trading Compa-
ny, the wholesaler for Gerber
in the Bahamas, said he was
aware of the recall and had
informed all of the stores LTC
supplies to remove the product
from their shelves.

He indicated that there were
a minority of other stores which
his company does not supply,
but, he added, he had also con-
tacted those shops to let them
know about the recall.

However, when The Tribune
carried out a limited random
check at various food stores

employees at some of the stores
claimed they were unawareof a

Bishop Humes said that the law is clear i in this

not go to the election court if they feel that they
have been robbed of an election, but some things
you have to accept as a fact and go on with life.
The time and money you have to spend to get a
court to reverse a decision is only going to make
it worse. What if the court were to reverse the sit-

happen in this country?” Bishop Humes asked.

The highest court in the Bahamas, Bishop
Humes said, is the people and the people on May
2, 2007 have spoken.

In addition, he said that while in a democratic
society a person has the right to dispute or protest
the outcome of anythins, he pointed out that
what may be lawful is noi always expedient.

This dispute in the election court he said has
only served to increase the lawlessness in the
country which is manifesting itself at all levels,

matter. The choice of senators was up to the
prime minister after consultation with the leader
of the opposition.

This too, he said, the leader of the opposition
should accept and move on.

When asked by host Michael Pintard what was
his reaction to criticism by members of the former
government that despite their support of the
church, the Christian Council failed to come to
their aid when they needed it.

“I know the former government would have
liked us to go on their platform to campaign, but
I will not do it. The Christian Council was not
formed to support any political platform. Our
job is not to put our stamp on a political party.
The effectiveness of the Christian Council can
only be maintained by remaining neutral. We
are the moral gate keepers of the country,” Bish-

leader of opposition business
in the House, said that Mr
Gibson’s perceived reluctance
to remove the computer was
because he was seeking to find
in the rule book of the House
where it was stated that per-
sonal computers were not
allowed.

“T have asked for the mem-
ber of Golden Gates to with-
draw himself from the cham-
ber and that is for the rest of
today’s proceedings,” Mr
Smith said.

After a number of persons
in the opposition threatened
that if one of them was dis-
missed, the entire opposition
would walk out, Tommy
Turnquest, leader of govern-
ment business in the House,
called for a quick recess of
Parliament.

During the recess, Mr Turn-
quest, and Dr Nottage met
with Mr Smith in the Speak-
er’s chambers. Following the
recess, the MP for Golden
Gates made a full apology to

the Speaker before the House’

was finally allowed to contin-
ue with its business.

Mr Gibson: “Mr Speaker, I
accept your ruling, on the use
of computers and I regret hav-
ing not followed your instruc-
tions in terms of the use of the
computer. But, as I said, dur-
ing my Budget presentation,
Iused you, and the Member
for Lucaya as my mentors.

‘ “JT really admired the way
you carried yourselves in Par-

. liament and I thought it would

be appropriate for me to
always mentor somebody in
terms of whatever you do in
life. And I regret not having
followed your instructions
about the computer,” he said.

The Speaker then withdrew

his order for Mr Gibson to _ E

remove himself from the
chamber.

_ Airport union

executives
FROM page one

They and their lawyer,
Fayne Thompson, allege that
the president’s behaviour is
“unheard of” in the history of
trade unionism in this coun-
try.

According to a sworn affi-
davit, Ms Harding has physi-
cally “locked out” Mr Bain —
one of several officers she is
said to want removed — pre-
venting him from entering the
building to carry out union
business.

The affidavit stated that the
officers experienced a “wors-
ening relationship” with Ms
Harding after a September
2006 meeting in which they
raised concerns about a
$78,000 deposit, constituted
of union funds, made by the
president on the union’s
behalf for a new building. The
$78,000 deposit was subse-
quently lost “due to the pres-
ident’s unilateral negligent
actions,” the statement
claimed, and has not been

' recovered to date.

The meeting also saw the
officers seek clarification on
significant “discrepancies” in
the union’s operating account,
according to the affidavit.

The document states that
the questions on these mat-
ters by the executive officers
“clearly annoyed” Ms Hard-

ing.
Ms Harding is quoted in the
affidavit as having said: “I do
not trust the executive, and
us executive do not trust
” It was at this point, ina |
Tue 6 meeting, that she then .
indicated that she would “dis-
solve the union’s executive
.and that she would take the
executives off the union,” the
affidavit said.

Mr Thompson said that the

president has no power to do

. this, as the officers have been

elected by the members to

-serve.a three-year term. vig taat

‘Yésterday, Mr Bain, Msi.
Palmer and trustee Fredericka ee

‘Baker, convened.a press con-

ference at Mr Thompson’s ©
office, to fully inform

i AAAWU members why they » eM

are filing the injunction — in.

- which five officers are named

as plaintiffs.
‘They claim reports leaked

to the press beginning in Jan-

uary: of a coup plot against the ©
president by certain executive
officers are untrue.

‘Reports have been appear-

‘ing in the media since the start

of the year indicating that the
working relationship between .
-Ms Harding and certain other

union executives had “broken «... »...

down.” au

They claim that the presi-. ~
dent has. been working “uni-
laterally”, without consulting
other executive members as
dictated by the union’s-con- .
stitution; and has on numer-
ous occasions used a “bogus
power” to call meetings.

Mr Thompson claims the.
legal action is not a “hostile”
one, but an effort to ensure
the union’s constitution is not
abused and that unionism in
this country is.“‘safeguarded.”

The: matter is complicated
by. the fact that in February,
Ms © Harding ~~ publicly
announced her intention to
resign by June but has as yet

MEMBERS of Taiwan s

Also on Wednesday, Tai

Questions raised after plane crash in Brazil

@ BRAZIL
Sao Paulo

BRAZIL’S deadliest jetliner
crash was an accident foretold.
For months, air safety concerns
have been aired in congression-
al hearings, and pilots and traf-
fic controllers have worried for
years about the short, slippery
runways at Brazil’s busiest air-
port, according to Associated
Press.

Landing on the 6,362-foot-
long runway at Sao Paulo’s
Congonhas airport is so chal-
lenging that pilots liken it to an
aircraft carrier — if they don’t
touch down precisely within the
tarmac’s first 1,000 feet, they’re
warned to pull up and circle
around again. The ungrooved
runway becomes even more
treacherous in the rain when it
turns into a slick landing sur-
face.

The runway appears to have
been a key factor in Tuesday’s
crash, and critics condemned
President Luis Inacio da Silva’s
government Wednesday for fail-
ing to invest in safety measures
adopted by other urban air-
ports.

International air safety

(AP Photo/Victor Caivano)

experts have long warned of the
danger of just such an accident
on the short runway at Sao
Paulo’s airport, especially in
heavy rain. Only the day before,
two other planes skidded off the
runway’s end.

But Bologna said it was too
early to say what went wrong.

“We have to wait for the
results of the investigations to
know the cause,” he said. “It
would be premature to make
any assumptions about the run-
way.”

Like many congested urban
airports, Sao Paulo’s domestic
air travel hub is surrounded by
development and has no room

- for thé runway extensions rec-
- ommended by air safety groups.

New York’s LaGuardia Air-
port, by contrast, has a 7,003-
foot runway.

But the International Feder-
ation of Air Line Pilots’ Asso-
ciations said Wednesday the
accident shows the need for the

next best thing _ braking sys-
tems of soft cement beyond the
runway, where wheels can sink
in and slow the jets to a safe
stop.

The soft cement is strong
enough to support airport emer-
gency vehicles, but disintegrates
into fragments when a heavy
aircraft runs over it, thus acting
as a brake.

Known as an arrestor bed,
the system has prevented sev-
eral planes from ending up in
the bay next to New York’s
John F. Kennedy International
Arrport, said Gideon Ewers, the
pilot group’s spokesman.

Critics condemned Silva’s
government for its failure to fix
Brazil’s air traffic problems in
the months since 154 people
were killed in the September
collision of a Gol Airlines Boe-

ing 737 with a small jet over the |

Amazon rainforest.

“Tt’s been 10 months since the
last worst air accident in Brazil-
ian history and now we’ve had
an accident worse than that,”
said David Fleischer, a politi-
cal scientist at the University of
Brasilia. “If you look at what’s
happened since September, the
answer is nothing.”

Silva has-been unable to
wrest control of the civil avia-
tion system from the military,
which oversees Brazil’s air traf-
fic controllers and has filled top
positions at the national avia-
tion agency with political
appointees with little or no
experience. |

The accident is certain to

have political ramifications, if. *

ed Rep. Julio Redecker, 51, a
leader of the opposition Brazil-
ian Social Democracy Party and

vocal critic of Silva’s handling of ‘

Port authority and

@ By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter

FREEPORT - As reports
continue to circulate regard-
ing the closure of Pegasus
the company’s
lawyer and Grand Bahama
Port Authority officials say
they are “unaware” of the sta-
tus of the operation.

According to reports, the
staff has been significantly
reduced, and office furniture
and equipment has been
removed from the warehouse
building on Settler’s Way.

Company CEO Jasper
Knabb, who opened the wire-
less manufacturing plant in
January, is not on island and
could not be reached for com-
ment.

Attorney Pleasant Bridge-
water said that she is not
aware of the status of the busi-

ness in Freeport.

“I am not involved in the
business’s day-to-day opera-
tion, and my involvement with
the company is restricted just
to my legal role. I have no idea
about Mr Knabb’s where-
abouts,” she said.

Mr Knabb had initially

indicated that Pegasus Wire- .

less Corporation is a public
traded company, with manu-
facturing plants in China and
Taiwan. The company report-
edly manufactured wireless
products.

The Grand Bahama Port
Authority granted the compa-

ny a business licence some-

time during last quarter of
2006.

“We don’t know any thing
about it closing down, or what
is going on down ai the ware-
house,” said a reliable source
at the Port Authority.

GRANDMASTER Carl Cul-
mer, head of the Prince Hall
Grand Lodge of the Free and
Accepted Masons, says that his
organisation plans to play a
larger role in the socio-eco-
nomic development of the
Bahamas.

Mr Culmer was recently
elected as grand master of the
lodge. He previously served as
district deputy grandmaster for
District I (New Providence).

The new grand master said
he plans to take some of the
programmes established by his
predecessors “one step further”
and will allow “the masonic
body to play an improved role
in society”.

He said that one of his pri-
orities as grand master will be to
ensure that the body and its

subordinate lodges play a larger

role in working with the coun-
try’s youth — particularly the
young men — at a time when
crime and immorality appear to
be on the rise.

Mr Culmer said it is his belief
that the masonic teachings of
spirituality, morality, equality
and brotherly love can have an
impact on the nation’s young
men and women.

He said it is time that
Bahamian men of good moral
fibre took the lead in helping
to bring about the turnaround
needed, especially among the
youth and that as masons, the
Prince Hall Affiliated family is
prepared to stand in the gap
and “speak up” atid to make a
difference “whenever neces-

sary”.

“Masons and good men
throughout this country have to
stand up and show the nation
that there are still a lot of men

of good character in this country’

who would like to see this coun-
try move from where it is espe-
cially in terms of the social ills
that are impacting our country,”
Mr Culmer said.

He said the Prince Hall Asso-
ciation fraternity is filled with
both veteran and young masons
who are positive role models
and who, because they “come
from all facets of society”, have

“T don’t see our youth — par-

of these very same problems.

“This committee is comprised _

of young, energetic examples in
the community and some of our
veteran masons who will work

help stem the tide of crime and
immorality that is facing our

Mr Culmer said the plan will
be implemented throughout the
10 districts that comprise the
Prince Hall Affiliated family,
including the Family Islands, to
ensure. “the universality of our
projects and that all Bahamiaris

that filling the void and énsuring

Choreographer puts on poetry and
dance show at National Theatre |

@ By Arthia Nixon-Stack

MINISTER of Culture
Charles Maynard joined writer
and choreographer Paul Whyl-
ly on-stage at the National The-
atre for Performing Arts on
Sunday to congratulate him on
his production “Diary of the
Spirit - His Emancipation”.

Mr Whylly also took the
opportunity to sign copies of his
book of the same name.

With performances by Tami-
ka Smith, Ricardo Knowles and
the Voices of Zion, songs filled
the theatre only to be followed
by dancing by Revere Dance
Academy’s principal dancers.

Mr Whylly’s choreography
was displayed through jazz and
ballet, with a stand-out perfor-
mance by one of his protégés,
Adenecia Kemp.

Despite all the laughter and
crowd pleasing antics by Mr

Whylly’s sister Michaela, who °

served as mistress of ceremo-

will vie for the title of Miss Bahamas 2007 at the
Crystal Palace Resort and Casino's Rainforest Theatre.

Anya, 21, studied pre-pharmacy at Palm
Beach Atlantic University and is currently —
working at Lowe’s Pharmacy while pursuing

a marketing degree at St. Thomas University.

Her ambition is to own an array of
businesses and launch them internationally,
while remaining in the Bahamas no matter
how successful she becomes. Anya enjoys
swimming, reading and cooking and is
motivated by her family and by her desire to
help others in the community.

Her biggest inspiration is her mother, who
has always found time to give back to the

ny, deeper emotions were
unveiled as the life of a man
who nearly died at 13 months
old after being hit by a car, then
struggled to overcome the sins
of the world, particularly drugs,
was portrayed.

Mr Maynard congratulated
Mr Whylly, who said he took

pleasure in sharing his family:
history dating back to his ances- -

tor Cudjoe, who arrived from
Togo, West Africa to- work on
the Clifton Plantation, and
Esther, a slave who adopted the
surname Whylly.

“Paul, you made a statement
not about you but about the
men in this country,” said the
minister. “When you first
approached me with the idea
for the show I saw your passion
and at a time in our nation
when young men are fighting
with so many demons, you told
your story about overcoming
your own demons and I knew I

had to give you my full support.

community. While pursuing her studies in
Palm Beach, Anya volunteered for Habitat
for Humanity and Locks of Love. She also
volunteered to work in soup kitchens for the
les¢ fortunate at First Baptist Church.

If she wins the Miss Bahamas crown, Anya
says she will be fully dedicated to her
platform and will do everything in her power

‘ to represent the Bahamas to the best of her

ability.. Motions wishes Anya, Miss Motions,

the best of luck on July 22!

young men should read because
you’ve been there and you are
not preaching to the converted
but rather from experience and
the people here who have come

under the alias Alvin Ailey,

Abbas hacks early
Palestinian elections,
deepening hostilities
with Hamas

m@ RAMALLAH,
West Bank

PALESTINIAN Presi-
dent Mahmoud Abbas on
Wednesday endorsed the
idea of early elections,
deepening animosities
with Hamas following the
Islamic militant group’s
violent takeover of the
Gaza Strip, according to
Associated Press.

Abbas did not say when
he might hold new elec-
tions or how he would
organize a vote in Hamas-
ruled Gaza. Abbas has
come under criticism for
taking tough measures
against Hamas in the
West Bank, and talk of
holding a new vote might
be a way of silencing his
critics.

Abbas made the
announcement ahead of a
gathering later in the day
of a top decision-making
body of the Palestine Lib-
eration Organization, the °
PLO’s Central Council.
The PLO is an umbrella
group of Palestinian © |
groups, but Hamas is not *
represented.

The council, dominated
by Abbas’ Fatah move=")-
ment, was expected to call :
for early elections asia hs
way toward ending 'its. bit-
ter power strugels with ‘
Hamas.

“This issue will be dis-
cussed in the council and
when there is a decision
for early elections, it is
my responsibility to issue
the decree for that;” :
Abbas said.

Abbas spoke at a joint
news conference with the
European Union’s foreign
policy chief, Javier
Solana, who voiced his
support for the Palestin-
ian leader.

“Some initiatives are
going to be taken in the
coming days that may
lead to the dream of all of

us, especially if the Pales- | .

tinians. start a political
process,” Solana said.

NELSON Mandela celebrated
his 89th birthday Wednesday with
a star-studded soccer match and
the launch of a humanitarian cam-
paign, joined by former U.S. Pres-
ident Jimmy Carter, former U.N.
Secretary-General Kofi Annan
and other elders of the global vil-
lage, according to Associated
Press.

The elders event kicked off
with about 250 people taking to
their feet to sing "Happy Birth-
day" as Mandela beamed with
delight before being helped to the
stage by his wife and Carter.

“How God must love South
Africa to have given us such a
priceless. gift," Desmond Tutu,
South Africa's former Anglican
archbishop and chairman of the
elders group, told Mandela. "You
bowled us all over by your gra-
ciousness, magnanimity and gen-
erosity of spirit."

Mandela was imprisoned for
nearly three decades for his fight
against apartheid. Released in
1990, he led negotiations to end
decades of white rule. In 1994, in
South Africa's first fully democ-
ratic elections, he was elected
president. .

He left office in 1999 but has
continued to work to reduce
poverty; illiteracy and AIDS in
Africa. ° ;

The Elders stems from an idea
of British entrepreneur Richard
Branson, who shares a birthday
with Mandela, and musician Peter
Gabriel, who were present at
Wednesday's launch.

The Elders, who include sever-

..al Nobel peace laureates — among

them Mandela — are dedicated to
finding new ways to foster peace
and resolve global crises, and to
supporting the next generation of
leaders.

The Elders are Annan; Ela
Bhatt, a women's rights cam-
paigner from India; former Nor-
wegian Prime Minister Gro
Harlem Brundtland; Carter; Li
Zhaoxing, a former Chinese
envoy to the U.N. who started his
diplomatic career in Africa; Man-

time campaigner for children's

Addressing concerns about how

Carter said: "My prayer is that
the great potential of The Elders
might be realized though sound
judgment and through dedication
and courage."

Britain says main suspect in Litvinenko
poisoning death must be tried in UK

mj LONDON

BRITAIN said Wednesday
it would not accept a trial in a
third country of a former KGB
agent accused of using radioac-
tive poison to kill a Kremlin
critic, according to Associated
Press.

Prime Minister Gordon
Brown’s office earlier appeared
to have opened the way to a
possible compromise deal in
another country or- territory,
but later confirmed it would
only consider a trial in Britain.

“We want the trial to be ina
British court, on British soil,”
his spokesman Michael Ellam
said.

The spokesman earlier said
only that the trial should take
place in a British court — rais-
ing the prospect of a hearing
’ in a third country as in the case
of a Libyan suspect convicted

for the 1988 airliner bombing :

over Lockerbie, Scotland.

That trial was held by a Scot-
tish court specially convened
in the Netherlands after Libya
accepted the proposal of a trial
in a neutral country.

Brown’s Downing Street
office said any confusion was
unintentional and stressed it



“We want the trial to be in a
British court, on British soil.”



Michael Ellam, spokesman for
British Prime Minister Gordon Brown

was seeking a trial in Britain.

Britain this week ordered
four Russian diplomats to leave
the country because of Russia’s
refusal to extradite Andrei
Lugovoi, who was named by
British prosecutors as the chief
suspect in the killing of Alexan-
der Litvinenko, a Kremlin crit-
ic and former KGB agent poi-
soned with a radioactive iso-
tope in London in November.

Russia has. threatened
unspecified measures in
response, leading to concerns
that both sides are taking
extreme positions that could
make resolution of the dispute
difficult.

Europe Minister Jim Mur-
phy told the Foreign’ Affairs
select committee on ‘Wednes-
day that Britain had made a
targeted and, measured
response to Russia.

already outlined, he told law-
makers.

Murphy also said Brown’s
government would not accept a
trial of Lugovoi outside Britain.

Murphy told the panel that
London and Moscow were con-
tinuing to cooperate in many
fields. “It’s our intention to
emphasize that we see Russia
as a strong ally,” he said.

Boris Berezovsky, a London-
based Russian tycoon sought
by Russia for trial on embez-
zlement and money-launder-
ing charges, said Tuesday he
would agree to a trial in a third
country, though it was not clear
whether he would accept a
Russian court convened else-
where.

Britain’s refusal to extradite
Berezovsky, who was granted
British citizenship after fleeing
Russia, has long angered the

Kremlin.

_London’s Foreign Office said
in a document Wednesday that

- relations with Moscow have

been “overshadowed by ten-
sions” over asylum granted to
Russian dissidents.

Moscow has not “fully

accepted that these questions

are matters of law, not of poli-
tics or diplomacy,” said the doc-
ument, prepared by officials as
part of a parliamentary inquiry
into Russian-British relations.

Berezovsky, a one-time
Kremlin insider who has fall-
en out with Russian President
Vladimir Putin, said Wednes-

day that he fled Britain briefly .

last month because British
intelligence services told him
his life was in danger. ,

“TI was informed by Scotland
Yard that there was a plot to
kill me, and they recommended
to me to leave the country,”
Berezovsky told The Associat-
ed Press. He said he left Britain

for about a week and returned —

when Scotland Yard told him
the plot had been foiled.

Berezovsky was granted
political asylum in Britain in
2003. His visibility has
increased since Litvinenko’s
murder.

Scotland Yard declined to

comment on Berezovsky’s
claim and on newspaper
reports saying a suspect seized
at a London hotel allegedly
intended to lure Berezovsky
there in order to shoot him.

A British security official also
declined to confirm or deny the
claim, but stressed that the MIS
domestic intelligence agency
has no powers to arrest sus-
pects.

“Berezovsky is a very high-
profile critic of the Putin

regime, and history does show
that it would appear that the
Russians are prepared to take
action against their critics
abroad,” said the official, who
demanded anonymity to
discuss sensitive intelligence
work.

The official could not say
whether British intelligence ser-
vices believe Russia has tried
to attack dissidents in London
since Litvinenko’s murder. But
the official confirmed that
about 30 Russian spies are
believed to be based in Lon-
don to monitor exiles in the
city.

Russian Ambassador Yury
Fedotov told BBC radio that
Berezovsky’s claim about a plot
to assassinate him was “quite
strange information, and I have

nothing that could confirm it.”
He alleged that Berezovsky
is linked “to many criminal
international schemes of mon-
ey laundering, corruption and
organized crime.”
Berezovsky said he first
learned of the plot through
contacts within Russia’s Fed-
eral Security Service.
“They told me that someone
I knew would come and kill me
openly and present it as a busi-
ness matter. He would say
there was a disagreement over
the business,” he said.
Litvinenko died Nov. 23 after
ingesting radioactive poloni-
um-210. In a deathbed state-
ment, he accused Putin of being
behind the poisoning. Litvi-
nenko said he fell ill after meet-
ing Lugovoi and his business

partner, Dmitry Kovtun, at
London’s Millennium Hotel on
Nov. 1.

A waiter who was working
at the hotel told a British news-
paper on Sunday that he
believed a poison had
been sprayed into a pot of
green tea.

Lugovoi, also a former KGB
officer, gave a television inter-
view Tuesday in which he said
Britain had provoked the diplo-
matic conflict.

“The British officials have
backed themselves into a cor-
ner by proposing to extradite
me, although it was obviously
prohibited by the (Russian)
Constitution,” he said on Rus-
sia Today, an English-language
satellite channel under Kremlin
control.

§ Korea: N Korea agrees to disclose and

@ BEWING

NORTH Korea followed up
the shutdown of its sole oper-
ating reactor with a pledge
Wednesday to disclose all its
nuclear weapons programs
and disable them by the end
of the year, South Korea’s
nuclear envoy said, according
to Associated Press.

The North’s chief nuclear

a negotiator, Vice Foreign Min-

ister Kim Kye Gwan, made
the promise during the open-
ing session of six-nation talks

in Beijing, Chun Yung-woo

said.

“North Korea expressed its
intention to declare and dis-
able (its nuclear facilities)

within the shortest possible

period, even within five or six
months, or by the end of the
year,” Chun said.

In separate talks with South
Korea on Wednesday, Kim
said his country was willing to
declare its nuclear programs
“without omitting a single
one,” Chun said.

That implied North Korea
will also mention a uranium
enrichment program that it
has never publicly acknowl-

- . edged. The U.S. accused

Pyongyang in 2002 of embark-
ing on such a program in vio-
lation of an earlier disarma-
ment deal — touching off a
nuclear crisis.

The arms talks — which
include Japan, Russia and the
U.S. — began Wednesday
with an infusion of optimism
after North Korea shut down
its reactor Saturday.

The atmosphere was “as

...' bright as Beijing’s skies and
. was more serious and busi-

nesslike than any other time,”
Chun said Wednesday after
the meeting of all six coun-
tries at a Chinese guesthouse
in a city bathed in sunshine.

The main U.S. envoy
declined to give specifics on
the discussions, but said the
Chinese hosts were expected
to issue a statement at the end
of the meetings Thursday lay-
ing out a target date for the
North’s declaration and dis-
ablement of its nuclear pro-
grams.

“There was a very good and
positive discussion on all of
the issues,” Assistant Secre-
tary of State Christopher Hill
told reporters.

Japan also said it was
impressed by North Korea’s
positive attitude.

“I had the impression that
North Korea is prepared to
implement the initial stage
steps,” Tokyo’s envoy
Kenichiro Sasae said, refer-
ring to the list and disable-
ment.

Chun said the North’s dec- :

laration should also include
bombs the North has built.
“If North Korea has some-
thing, whether it be a nuclear
weapon or a nuclear detona-
tion device, it should declare
all of them,” he said.
Earlier Wednesday, the
U.N. nuclear watchdog con-
firmed that North Korea shut-
tered all remaining facilities

_ at its main nuclear complex in

addition to its only working
reactor.

“We have verified all the

five nuclear facilities have
been shut down,” Mohamed
ElBaradei, chief of the Inter-
national Atomic Energy
Agency, told reporters during
a visit to Kuala Lumpur,
Malaysia.

Some of the facilities have
also been sealed by U.N.
inspectors, ElBaradei said.

ElBaradei announced ear-
lier in the week that inspec-

tors had verified the shutdown .

of North Korea’s only work-
ing nuclear reactor at Yong-
byon, 60 miles north of
Pyongyang.

His announcement Wednes-
day confirmed four additional
facilities were also shuttered,
including two long-dormant
construction sites for larger
reactors, and facilities for
making reactor fuel and repro-
cessing it to harvest plutoni-
um for bombs.

ElBaradei said having the
facilities listed and dismantled
by year-end could only hap-
pen if there was progress in
the six-nation talks and the
North’ remains cooperative
with inspectors, who may be

required to travel across the

secretive nation to other sites.

“What is really important is
full transparency,” ElBaradei
said. “The more transparen-
cy we get, the quicker we will
be: able to verify that every-
thing in (North Korea) has
been declared to us.”

North Korea has begun
receiving 50,000 tons of oil
from South Korea as a reward
for the reactor shutdown, and
is to eventually receive the
equivalent of a total 1 million
tons for disabling its nuclear
facilities.

But Pyongyang has also
demanded the U.S. and Japan
end their “hostile” policies
against the regime, such as

’ other economic sanctions and

being named on a USS. list of
terrorism-sponsoring states.
The countries involved in

the arms talks last met in-

March, although the main
U.S. envoy Hill made a sur-
prise trip to Pyongyang in
June — his first ever — to
urge the North to comply with
its pledges.

Man made hunk of
metal crashes
through NJ roof,
officials perplexed

m@ BAYONNE, N.J.

A HUNK of metal that
crashed through the roof ofa
home has NASA, Federal
Aviation Administration and
New Jersey Transit officials
scratching their heads,
according to Associated
Press.

The man who lives in the
house was watching televi-
sion Tuesday when he heard
a crash and saw a cloud of
dust. In the next room, he

found a hunk of gray metal,

3 1/2 inches by 5 inches, with
two hexagonal holes in it.

Experts say it’s manmade,
but nobody can say where it
might have come from.

New Jersey Transit has
railroad tracks about 100
feet from the house, but
spokesman Dan Stessel said
the object isn’t something
that would have flown off a
train.

FAA officials said it was-
n’t a part that would have
fallen from a plane headed
into or out of nearby Newark
Liberty International Air-
port.

“Tt doesn’t look very
‘space-y,”’ said Henry Kline,
a spokesman for NASA’s Jet
Propulsion Laboratory in
Pasadena, Calif. “It’s obvi-
ously made for something ...
But we wouldn’t know what
to do with it.”

U.S. Air Force Major
Costas Leonidou at the Pen-
tagon said he couldn’t identi-
fy the fallen object, either.
“It could be Air Force,
Navy, Marines, commercial.
It could be anything,” he
said.

Authorities in Bayonne, as
well as the home’s residents,
just want to get it identified.

“It belongs to somebody,”
Police Director Mark Smith
said.

17 soldiers and eight suspected
militants killed in Pakistan clashes

@ ISLAMABAD, Pakistan

MILITANTS bombed and
strafed an army convoy with
gunfire Wednesday, killing 17
troops and continuing a wave
of violence that has stirred
doubts about Pakistan's stabili-
ty, according to Associated Press.

At least eight suspected mili-
tants also died in clashes with
security forces in North Waziris-
tan, a Taliban and al-Qaida
stronghold on the Afghan bor-
der where a disputed peace deal
has collapsed and troops have
moved in.

President Gen. Pervez
Musharraf urged moderate Pak-
istanis, many of whom are press-
ing him to resign and restore
civilian rule, to help him take
on the extremists.

However, the military-led

government also challenged -:

U.S. claims that al-Qaida. is
regrouping near the Afghan
border as lacking substance.

Suicide attacks, bombings and
shootings blamed on Islamic
extremists and a bloody army
siege of radicals in Islamabad's
Red Mosque have killed more
than 240 people so far this
month.

Adding" to the tension, a sui-
cide bomber on Tuesday killed
16 people at a rally for Pak-
istan's suspended chief justice,
whose legal battle with Mushar-

raf has galvanized opposition to .

military rule. A verdict in the
case is expected as early as Fri-
day.

Critics accuse Musharraf of
leading the country toward civ-
il war and using the crisis to
shore up U.S. support for his
eight-year-old military regime.
There is growing concern that
year-end elections will be post-
poned.

However, Musharraf insisted

Wednesday the ballot would go

ahead and dismissed specula-
tion he would declare a state of
emergency.

He claimed that al-Qaida was
on the run.

"Al-Qaida has weakened

because of the actions taken by -

Pakistani forces," Musharraf

@ A PAKISTAN para-military soldier stands guard witha road sign reads "Avenue of Democra-
cy, " in Islamabad, Pakistan, Wedneday, July 18, 2007. Authorities beefed up security in capital after
Tuesday’ s suicide bombing which killed 16 people before a rally in support of Pakistan's chief justice
’ who is suspended by Pakistan's military ruler Gen. Pervez Musharraf.

was quoted by spokesman
Rashid Quereshi as telling a
group of local newspaper edi-
tors.

"We are in direct confronta-
tion with the extremist forces —
moderates versus extremists,"
said Musharraf, according to the
state-run news agency Associ-
ated Press of Pakistan.

The army said militants
attacked one of its convoys
about 40 kilometers (25 miles)
west of North Waziristan's main
town of Miran Shah with a
remote-control bomb and then
opened fire on the surviving sol-
diers.

Seventeen soldiers were killed
and more than a dozen injured
in the ambush, army spokesman
Maj. Gen. Waheed Arshad said.

The. army said several "mis-
creants" were killed in retalia-
tory fire by the surviving troops,
while another five militants were

killed in a clash in the town of

Mir Ali. -

Two local security officials
said security forces also shot and
killed men in a car after they

refused to stop near Miran
Shah. Weapons were found in
the vehicle, according to the offi-
cials, who said they were not
allowed to speak on the record.

Earlier, an explosion hit
another convoy near Miran
Shah, wounding one soldier and
up to six civilians, Arshad said.

The bloodshed has clouded
government efforts to resurrect
a peace pact that militants dis-
avowed over the weekend.

Musharraf insists the accord —
under which the military scaled
back its operations in the U.S.-
led war on terror in return for
pledges from tribal leaders to
contain militancy — offers the
best long-term hope of pacifying
the region.

However, U.S. officials have
expressed concern that it gives
Islamic extremists breathing
space that they have used to
strengthen their operations in

Pakistan, Afghanistan and.

beyond.

In an intelligence report
unveiled in Washington on
Tuesday, analysts said the pact

had given al-Qaida new oppor-
tunities to set up compounds for
terror training, improve its inter-
national communications with
associates and bolster its opera-
tions.

Al-Qaida was using its bur-
geoning strength in Pakistan, as
well as Iraq, to plot terror strikes
on American soil, according to
the latest U.S. National Intelli-

_ gence Estimate.

Pakistan's Foreign Ministry
rejected that. assessment

Wednesday as unsubstantiated.

"We would firmly act to elim-
inate any al-Qaida hide-out on
the basis of specific intelligence
or information," a ey
statement said.

"It does not help simply to
make assertions about the pres-
ence or regeneration of al-Qaida
in bordering areas of Pakistan.
What is needed is concrete and
actionable information and
intelligence sharing," it said.

It also reiterated that no for-
eign security forces would be
allowed to pursue militants in
Pakistan territory. ‘

National fide knew no
bounds this year for
employees of Citi in
celebration of Independence
Day for The Bahamas.







The concept, “All Tings
Bahamian”, began as a
decorating contest among
business units of the local

- franchise here in Nassau but
_ quickly took on a life of its
own. Business teams
corralled their creative
energy and turned the
Thompson Boulevard offices
_ of Citi into a sea of turquoise,
yellow and black. Displays
included a technology unit |
turned’ into a scaled down >
version of Bain Town,
cubicles turned into siayen
houses. complete with |

; gingham curtains, and a
myriad of historic items. Staff
performed poe aco rush
out. :



































Even a live crab and chicken
in cages found their way into
displays. On hand to judge
the displays were four well-
known Bahamian cultural
_ personalities and activists,
Ms Fernern Hanna, William
R. Deveaux, Val Maura and











ona scrubbing board,
clothes line strewn wit
bloomers, gospel singing,
rake ‘n’ scrape, jack stone
and ring play. The room was

rich with the scent of old- ©
fashioned pea soup, stew
fish, potato bread, flour cal
and a variety of other
Bahamian treats.














“At Citi, we are known for our
globality and presence in
more than 100 countries, ©
however we know that our ~
commitment to the local
communities within which we
operate is what makes us
successful. We value our
presence in The Bahamas
and this type of event is just
one way in which we can give
back and honour the
country”, said Margaret A.
Butler, Citi Country Officer.
She went on to say that, “It
_| was wonderful to see the
1 teamwork and camaraderie

1 | among our employees. We

had a really fun time with this!
| don’t know how we will top
it next year.”

US military: Top
al-Qaida in Iraq

figure seized,
said bin Laden
inner circle

Wields control

B BAGHDAD

THE highest-ranking
Iraqi leader of al-Qaida in
Iraq has been arrested
and told interrogators
that Osama bin Laden’s
inner circle wields consid-
erable influence over the
Iraqi group, the U.S. com-
mand said Wednesday,
according to Associated
Press.

Khaled Abdul-Fattah
Dawoud Mahmoud al-
Mashhadani, who was
captured in Mosul on July
4, carried messages from
_bin Laden, and his deputy
Ayman al-Zawahri, to the
Egyptian-born head of al-
Qaida in Iraq, Abu Ayub
al-Masri, said Brig. Gen.
Kevin Bergner, a military
spokesman.

“Communication
between the senior al-
Qaida leadership and al-
Masri frequently went
through al-Mashhadani,”
Bergner said. “There is a
clear connection between
al-Qaida in Iraq and al-
Qaida senior leadership
outside Iraq.”

The relationship
between the two groups
has been the subject of
debate, with some private
analysts believing the for-
eign-based leadership
plays a minor role in day-
to-day operations.

Some have suggested
that linking al-Qaida in
Iraq to bin Laden is sim-
ply an attempt to justify
the Iraq war as an exten-
sion of the global conflict
that began with the Sept.
11, 2001, attacks.

But the U.S, military
has insisted that there are
links between the local al-
Qaida group and the bin
Laden clique and has
released captured letters
from time to time, sug-
gesting the foreign-based
leaders provide at least
broad direction.

Bergner said al-Mash-

hadani had told interroga- —

tors that al-Qaida leaders
outside the country “con-
tinue to provide direc-
tions, they continue to
provide a focus for opera-
tions, they continue to
flow foreign fighters into
Iraq.”

Pointing to the foreign
influence in al-Qaida
undermines support for
the organization among
nationalistically minded
Iraqis, including some in
insurgent groups that
have broken with al-Qai-
da.

In the latest violence, a
series of roadside bombs
exploded early Wednes-
day in separate areas of
east Baghdad, killing 11
people and wounding
more than a dozen, police
said. The U.S. military
reported three more
American soldiers had
died in action in the Iraqi
capital.

Bergner said that al-
Mashhadani and al-Masri
had used an Iraqi actor to
put a local stamp on their
foreign-run organization,
by co-founding “a virtual
organization in cyber-
space called the Islamic
State of Iraq in 2006.”

In Web postings, the
Islamic State of Iraq has
identified its leader as
Abu Omar al-Baghdadi, a
name indicating Iraqi ori-
gin, with the Egyptian al-
Masri as minister of war.
There are no known pho-
tos of al-Baghdadi.

wa nuclear power plant in Kashiwazaki, northeastern Japan, Wednesday, July 18, 2007. A top power company official defended safety standards at an earthquake-ravaged

nuclear plant Wednesday, even as the company said a radioactive leak was bigger than first reported and came under international pressure for details.

Company says radioactive leak at Japan nuclear
plant was bigger than previously announced =<

BB KASHIWAZAKI, Japan

THE operator of an earth-
quake-ravaged nuclear plant
said Wednesday.a radioactive
leak from the plant was 50
percent bigger than first
reported two days ago. The
mayor ordered the facility
closed until its safety could be
confirmed, according to Asso-
ciated Press.

Tokyo Electric Power Co.
also said about 400 barrels
containing low-level radioac-
tive waste at the Kashiwazaki-
Kariwa plant were knocked
over, and the lids had come
off 40 of them, as a result of
Monday’s deadly 6.8-magni-
tude quake. The announce-

: . ment revised the company’s

earlier estimate of 100 tipped
barrels.

“We made a mistake in cal-
culating the amount that
leaked into the ocean. We
apologize and make correc-
tion,” Tokyo Electric said in a
statement. Spokesman Jun
Oshima said the amount of
radioactive water that leaked
into the Sea of Japan was still
“one-billionth of Japan’s legal
limit.”

Tokyo Electric spokesman
Tsutomu Uehara said no radi-
ation has been detected out-
side the nuclear plant.

Japanese automakers,
meanwhile, called production
halts Wednesday at factories
because of quake damage at a
major parts supplier. Produc-
tion was scaled back at Toyota
Motor Corp., Nissan Motor
Co. Mitsubishi Motors Corp.
and Fuji Heavy Industries.

Mayor orders closure until



safety can be confirmed

Toyota, Japan’s No. 1
automaker, will stop produc-
tion lines at a dozen factories
centered in central Aichi pre-
fecture Thursday afternoon
and Friday. The shutdown was
due to the temporary closure
of Riken Corp.’s plant at
Kashiwazaki, near the epicen-
ter of Monday’s quake.

’ Toyota will assess the situa-
tion at Riken, supplier of key
transmission and engine parts,
before deciding whether to
resume production Monday,
he said.

Charred

Repair workers on Wednes-
day climbed over the Kashi-
wazaki-Kariwa’s three-story
transformer building, which
was charred from top to bot-
tom in a fire Monday.

A tour given to Japan’s
Communist Party chief,
Kazuo Shii, and reporters
revealed widespread damage
across the sprawling com-
pound, including large cracks
in roads, toppled concrete
fences and buckled sidewalks.

“This is unforgivable,” Shii

told TEPCO Deputy Super- .

intendent Masakazu Minami-
date. “You say there’s no leak
before you really know. ... The
delay in information was espe-

cially inexcusable.”

TEPCO President Tsune-
hisa Katsumata toured the site
earlier, declaring it “a mess”
and apologizing for “all the
worry and trouble we have
caused.”

“We will conduct an inves-
tigation from the ground up.
But I think fundamentally we
have confirmed that our safe-

ty measures worked,” he said.

Hiroshi Aida, mayor of
Kashiwazaki, a city near the
epicenter that is home to the

. plant and 93,500 people,

ordered operations at the
plant halted Wednesday for
“safety reasons.”

The malfunctions and a
delay in reporting them fueled
concerns about the safety of
Japan’s 55 nuclear reactors,
which have suffered. a string
of accidents and cover-ups.
Nuclear power plants around
Japan were ordered to con-
duct inspections.

Adding to the urgency of
any investigation was new
data from quake aftershocks
that suggested a fault line may
run underneath the mammoth
power plant.

The Kashiwazaki-Kariwa
plant, located 135 miles north-
west of Tokyo, has been
plagued with mishaps. In 2001,
a radioactive leak was found
in the turbine room of one

reactor. It is the world’s largest
nuclear plant in power output
capacity.

Signs of problems after the
quake Monday came first not
from the officials, but in a
plume of:smoke after the
quake triggered a small fire at
an electrical transformer.
Twelve hours later, the com-
pany announced the quake
also caused a leak of about
315 gallons of water contain-
ing radioactive material. _

Reactors .

Later Tuesday, it said 50
cases of “malfunctioning and
trouble”. had been found. Four
of the plant’s seven reactors
were running at the time of
the quake, and they were all
shut down automatically by a
safety mechanism.

Meanwhile, TEPCO

spokesman Hiroshi Itagaki

said that information accu-
mulated by studying after-
shocks shows that a fault line
stretches under the ocean near
the coast, which is not far from
the plant. He declined to say
how close to the plant the
fault might come.

Osamu Kamigaichi, an offi-
cial at Japan’s Meteorological
Agency, which monitors
earthquakes, said it was pos-

sible the fault line stretched
to underneath the plant
grounds.

Across the town, more than :
8,000 residents hunkered
down for their second night
in shelters. Late Wednesday,
police discovered a 76-year-
old man crushed to death
under a temple in Kashiwaza-
ki, bringing the quake’s fatal-
ities to 10.

For residents, thousands of
whom work at the plant, the
controversy over its safety
compounded already severe
problems, which included
heavy rains and the threat of
landslides, water and power
outages. .

“Whenever there is an
earthquake, the first thing we
worry about is the nuclear
plant. I worry about whether
there will be a fire or some-
thing,” said Kiyokazu Tsuna-
jima, a tailor who sat outside
with his family, afraid an after-
shock might collapse his dam-
aged house.

The area around Kashi-

: wazaki was hit by an earth-

quake three years ago that
killed 67 people, but the plant °
suffered no damage. -

The plant’s safety record
and its proximity to a fault line
prompted residents to file law-
suits claiming the government
had failed to conduct sufficient
safety reviews when it
approved construction of the
plant in the 1970s. But in 2005,
a Tokyo court threw out a
lawsuit filed by 33 residents,
saying there was no error in
the government safety
reviews.

their mutually growing busi-

‘Builders Mall’ development at ©

Andrew Higgs, of M. R. Hig-

M. R. Higgs, formerly located

the launch of the new and

The ‘Builders Mall’ concept

ment for its cables.

‘Caribbean Crossings alleged
that when the break in its cable
system occurred, testing by its

technicians indicated the fibre -

split was between Hunters,
Grand Bahama, and Boca
Raton, Florida.

Further tests on July 31 by its

technicians confirmed this, and
that “the break was within the
territorial waters of the
Bahamas”. Tests conducted by
New World Networks, which is

Bahamas’ largest and control-

firmed the nature, extent and

Caribbean Crossings alleged

that it hired a contractor, IT

aged cable. The repair vessel,
CS Intrepid, was assigned and
mobilised on August 3, 2006,
leaving the Canadian port of
Halifax on August 6, 2006, and

Upon receipt of the forego-
ing documents, the Bahamas
Maritime Authority will issue a
Carving and Marking Note,
which must be certified by
either a classification society
surveyor, a Bahamas Maritime
Authority nautical inspector,
a Bahamian customs or con-
sular officer, or a Bahamas
Maritime Authority registrar.

The Act allows permanent
registration, provisional regis-
tration and dual registration.
Provisional registration per-
mits a ship owner to register
his ship on a provisional basis



for up to six months while the
necessary surveys and other
formalities are being complet-
ed.

This registration also allows
a ship registered on a provi-
sional basis to have all the priv-
ileges and erititlements of a ful-
ly-registered Bahamian ship

Dual registration is primari-
ly used in instances where a
charterer, whose ship was orig-
inally registered in the
Bahamas, wishes to use a dif-
ferent flag for the same ship.

The mortgages of this ship
may still be recorded in the
Bahamian register during the
period of the charter. Howev-
er, the Baharnian registration
for the ship will be suspended
for any other activity. The
same procedure applies for
those ships that have been reg-
istered, originally, in a foreign-

jurisdiction and wish to use the -

Bahamian flag.
It is important to note that

ships holding a foreign tonnage
certificate and wishing to be
transferred to the Bahamas
flag do not need to be re-mea-
sured for tonnage. Similarly,
ship owners who wish to trans-
fer their ships to the Bahamas
flag and possess valid safety
certificates issued by one of
the Bahamas Maritime
Authority's classification-soci-
eties are not required to have
their ships re-surveyed for safe-
ty.

It should be mentioned that
all Bahamas-registered ships
must be inspected upon regis-
tration, and on an annual basis

_ after the initial inspection.

Fees

The initial registration fees
for Bahamian ships are rela-
tively higher than some ship
registers. However, lower
annual fees, which are compa-
rable to other jurisdictions nor-
mally, help to balance these

high registration fees. It is
believed that the purpose of
creating such a high fee struc-
ture is to attract more rep-
utable ship operators to the
jurisdiction.

Initial Registration Fee

Ships of 5,000 net tons or less

US$1.20 per ton (minimum
$2,400)

Ships of over 5,000 net tons
but under

25,001 net tons

over

Commenting on the. admis-
sion by Tommy Turnquest, min-
ister of national security and
immigration, that in hindsight
the FNM government should
not have approved the Bimini
Bay Resort & Casino project
because its size was not in pro-
portion to that of Bimini or its
ecosystem, Fred Smith said the
current administration should
enact environmental protection
legislation that had been draft-
ed under the first Ingraham
administration.

- “T call on the FNM govern-
ment not to be approving any
more new developments before
they pass an. Environmental
Protection Act,” Mr Smith said.

“If the FNM government
were serious about protecting
the environment, they would
enact an Environmental Pro-
tection Act immediately. I call
on them to do so.”

The Callenders & Co attor-
ney and partner said the
Bahamas also needed to devel-
op a National Land Use Policy
to act as a guide in developing
an environmentally sustainable
and sound development policy.

“Given the explosion in
unbridled development, espe-
cially development by foreign



@ TURNQUEST

investment companies for the
purpose of exploiting the
Bahamas for sale, almost exclu-
sively, to affluent non-citizens,
the issue of environmental man-
agement becomes more urgent,
pressing and critical,” Mr Smith
said.

He pointed out that the Envi-
ronmental Health Services Act
1987 provided little regulatory,
management or enforcement
powers, with no provisions for
Environmental Impact Assess-
ments (EIAs).

Describing the Bahamian
coastline as being just like the

“gold” discovered in the 19th |

century US mid-west, which
brought a rush of prospectors
to those areas, Mr Smith said
the shortage of beachfront land
in Florida - most of it now built-
up - had forced developers to

turn their attention to the |

Bahamas.

He added: “Like the Florida
Gold Coast, the entire Bahamas
is a gold coast, and it is being
mined for profit, for the most
part by and for others, not by
and for Bahamians.

‘“Bahamians today receive
very little consideration in
return for the Great Giveaway
that has gone on. Future gen-
erations of Bahamians will be
left with the scraps of our gold
mine, and we will be left with

- scarred mine pits after the

coastal zones have been degrad-
ed and the reefs destroyed.

“Not only that, very few
Bahamians will own any coast-
line or even have access to
beaches or water for recreation,
or even accessing water.”

. Mr Smith told The Tribune
that the ‘anchor projects’ policy,
which was taken-to new heights
by Perry Christie’s government,

-had “no long-term thinking

underpinning them”.

Pointing to Bimini Bay, he
pointed out that the develop-
ment’s 3,000 homeowners
would effectively outnumber
the island’s 2,500 Bahamian res-

_idents. He questioned what the

Government’s future planning
and immigration policies would
be, as while these homeowners
would enjoy the Bahamian
lifestyle, they would have-no
influence or role in “participat-
ing in the development of these
communities”.

“This is the same situation
relplicated in Exuma, Abaco,

Eleuthera and Mayaguana,” Mr ~

Smith said.

He added that the Save Gua-
na Cay Reef Association, which
he is representing in its battle
against Discovery Land Com-

pany’s Baker’s Bay Golf & —

Ocean Club project, was “very
pleased that the FNM is
acknowledging the misguided
anchor property policy of the
PLP..... the failure and perver-

-sity of these anchor projects.”

the CS Intrepid, and there
appeared to be a structure on
the barge.

“The structure was very sim-
ilar to what had been discov-
ered under the water near the
fibre break. In making inquiries,
[Caribbean Crossings] was
advised that it was BORCO’s
material that was being
dumped. One of the tug boats
was named Russell A Gisclaer,
being registration number
367074030.

“BORCO was contacted and
provided co-ordinates and times
of the dumps.”

Caribbean Crossings said IT
Marine Ltd completed repairs
on 17 August, 2006, and the CS
Intrepid returned to Halifax.

The Cable Bahamas sub-
sidiary alleged: “The defendant
[BORCO] knew that undersea
structures were located on the

sea bed, and therefore owed a
duty of care to those owners.

“The fibre break was caused
by the negligence of the defen-
dants, their servants or agents,
or by persons for whom the
defendants are vicariously
liable.”

The lawsuit could not have
come at a worse time for BOR-
CO or its parent, the Venezue-
lan state-owned firm PDVSA,
which is trying to sell its
Bahamian subsidiary.

The potential liability from
this case is likely to have been

disclosed to prospective buyers -

who have qualified for the sec-
ond round of bidding on BOR-
CO, involving access to a data
room on the company’s finan-
cials and detailed due diligence,
such as Site visits, inspections
and meetings with management.

The lawsuit is also likely to
raise environmental questions
about whether BORCO had the

relevant permits and approvals
to do the “dumping”, and the
impact such activities might
have on the sea and marine
environment, integral to the
Bahamian tourism industry.

Caribbean Crossings alleged
that BORCO failed to check
“the location of marine struc-
tures in the area” where it was
dumping; did not consult charts
that would have shown where
its fibre-optic cable was located;
and “failed to obtain permis-
sion or the requisite permissions
to conduct the dumping”.

Caribbean Crossings said it
had obtained a Crown licence .
from the Department of Lands
and Surveys on December 15,
2000, giving it permission to use
the sea bed between .the three-
mile limit and the shore for its
fibre-optic cable system.

Caribbean Crossings also
alleged that BORCO failed to
supervise the dumping or give
adequate warning to affected
parties.

As a result, it had suffered
damages of $996,160, some
$911,244 of that sum coming
from having to hire an IT
marine specialist to effect the
repairs.

In addition, Caribbean Cross-
ings alleged: “The plaintiff has
suffered a diminution in the use
of the property for which it has
a licence. The presence of the
structures now makes it more
likely that anchors from sea ves-
sels will hook in the structures,
causing damage to its cable.”

The company also claimed
that through dumping these
“structures”, BORCO had tres-
passed and caused a “nuisance”,
and through their presence on
the sea bed left Caribbean
Crossings in violation of its
licence with the Government.

Caribbean Crossings said it
was also seeking the removal of
the structures dumped by BOR-
CO from its property.

The case is still live before
the Supreme Court, and hear-
ings are continuing. BORCO

made by Caribbean Crossings,

\ing into hiring,a company to '

Biminite Lloyd Edgecombe

told Tribune Business that the
recent admission by National
Security minister, Tommy
Turnquest, that the first FNM
government should not have
approved the Bimini Bay
resort; the receivership issues
surrounding the Four Seasons
at Emerald Bay resort on Exu-
ma; and the concerns raised by
the size of the Valentine’s
Reésort’s marina on Harbour
Island, were all indications the
Government needed to reeval-
uate its policy on Family Island
developments.

Urging that the integrity of
these islands was not compro-
mised, Mr Edgecombe said
condo hotels should not be
approved for Family Islands
because they were too big and
did not fit into island life.

Properties

“The only properties that
should be approved for small
Family Islands are the small
‘Mom and Pop’ operations,”
he said.

Mr Edgecombe said it was

for Biminites, namely the

5.5 per cent
sales gain

@ By HARRY R WEBER
AP Business Writer

ATLANTA (AP) — Delta
Air Lines Inc., the nation’s
third-largest carrier, cited a 5.5
per cent gain in sales as it
reported Wednesday that it
swung to a profit in the second
quarter, which saw it emerge
from bankruptcy after shaving
billions of dollars in costs.

The Atlanta-based compa-
ny’s results beat Wall Street
expectations when one-time
items are excluded.

Also Wednesday, outgoing
Chief Executive Gerald Grin-
stein told investors and ana-
lysts during a conference call
that Delta’s board will likely
choose his successor by the end
of the summer, at which point
he will retire. He had initially
said he planned to leave soon
after Delta emerged from
Chapter 11, but later extended
that timeline. He said during
the call the board is taking a
deliberative approach to find-
ing his replacement “given the
‘magnitude of this decision.”

The top internal candidates

.for CEO are Chief Financial

Officer Ed Bastian and Chief
Operating Officer James
Whitehurst. No external can-
didates have been mentioned
publicly.

Delta shares rose five cents
to $21.24 in morning trading.

For the three months end-
ing June 30, Delta said it
recorded net income of $1.77
billion, or $4.49 a share, com-
pared to a loss of $2.21 billion
in the same period a year ear-

United States’ third-largest carrier
reports profit in second quarter

lier. The corresponding per-
share figure for the year-ago
loss was not provided in
Delta’s balance sheet.

Excluding reorganization
and related one-time items,
Delta said it had a profit of
$274 million, or 70 cents a
share, in the second quarter.
On‘a comparable basis, ana-
lysts surveyed by Thomson
Financial were expecting a
profit of 59 cents a share.

The reorganization and
related one-time items Delta
accounted for in the second
quarter of this year stemmed
from $1.5 billion of income pri-

income was $1.64 billion, com-
pared to a loss of $4.28 billion
for the same period a'year ear-

to $9.24 billion, compared to

In bankruptcy, Delta shed
billions in costs and restruc-
tured the carrier’s operations.
It also survived a hostile
takeover bid by Tempe, Ariz.-
based US Airways Group Inc.

After exiting bankruptcy,
Delta unveiled plans for a new.
paint job for its planes, featur-
ing the company’s three-
dimensional red logo flying
across a blue background on
the tail of aircraft.

Besides finding a new CEO,
Delta’s board also must decide
whether to sell or spin off
regional feeder carrier Comair.

The airline has not provided a

specific timetable for that deci-
sion.

Bush moves to ensure safety of
food, products shipped into US

High-level government panel to recommend steps to improve policing of imports

@ By TOM RAUM
Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) —
President Bush yesterday
established a high-level gov-
ernment panel to recommend
steps to guarantee the safety
of food and other products
shipped into the United States
and to improve US policing of
those imports. The White
House denied the effort was
aimed primarily at China.

The president was to meet
later Wednesday with his new
Import Safety Working Group.
The panel will be chaired by
Health and Human Services
Secretary Michael Leavitt.

“The administration is con-
cerned about the safety of

imported products that Amer- -

icans eat and use and we'll start
working on concrete steps to
address whatever problems
they may uncover,” said White
House spokesman Tony Snow.
The Food and Drug Admin-
istration’s ability to monitor
the nation’s food supply has
come under sharp criticism
from Congress and others
amid a string of high-profile
cases of foodborne illness,
including E. coli-tainted
spinach and salmonella-cont-
aminated peanut butter and
snack foods, as well as con-
cerns about drug-laced, farmed
fish imported from China.
“This is not a slap at China,”
said Snow when asked if he
thought China would be
offended by Bush’s action.
“This is in fact a normal piece
of business. We ‘get food
imports from 150 countries
around the world. It’s impor-
tant to monitor them all.”



@ PRESIDENT Bush gestures in the Roosevelt Room of the
White House in Washington yesterday during a meeting with the
Import Safety group on to discuss ways to protect all imports

coming into the United States.

Members of Congress have
criticized the FDA’s plan to
close half of its laboratories.

Bush created the new panel
with an executive order.

Nancy Nord, acting chair-
woman of the Consumer Prod-
uct Safety Commission, called
the formation of the panel “a
wonderful step.

“The administration is mov-

ing aggressively to address the

issue.”

Earlier, she told a Senate
hearing that the rapid growth
of imports is putting a strain
on her agency. The intense
pressures on regulatory agen-
cies was also emphasized by
officials from the FDA and the

National Highway Traffic Safe-

&

Security & General

ty Administration at the hear-
ing by the Senate Commerce,
Science and Transportation
Committee.

Bush took the action as Chi-
na announced that teams of
food safety officials from the
US and China would meet in
Beijing at the end of this
month to discuss the safety of
China’s seafood exports.

The FDA announced last
month that it would detain
Chinese catfish and several
other categories of fish as well
as shrimp and eel after repeat-
ed testing turned up contami-
nation with drugs that have not
been approved in the United

States for use in farmed.

He added of the move to
extend British American
beyond its life and health insur-
ance heritage: “It’s in keeping
with the direction that the finan-
cial srevices industry is going
in, and we think we have a lot
more strengths than our com-
petitors.”

Mr Wilson, who is also an
attorney and partner in McK-
inney, Bancroft & Hughes,
revealed that British American
Financial was also actively con-
sidering branching out into the
capital markets business, via a
brokerage agency.

He said: “That is under dis-

“That'll be supported by the *
independent Board that we
have put together.”

Basil Sands has already been
named as British American
Financial’s chairman, and The
Tribune understands that oth-
er directors include Peter Carey;
former FNM MP Anthony
Rolle; and Vincent Vanderpool-
Wallace, the former Ministry of
Tourism director-general and
current Caribbean Tourism
Organisation (CTO) secretary-
general.

Mr Wilson said that BAB

_ Holdings and the new Board

wanted to “send a message”
about British American Finan-
cial’s independence and integri-
ty.
“It is our intention to set the
standard for corporate gover-
nance, and the cast of characters
wé have assembled for our

Board fully reflect that,” he
added.

Mr Wilson said British Amer-
ican Financial’s performance
since BAB Holdings acquired
the company was “trending in
line with Budget, which again
is very good, given that the first
quarter was in the middle of the
acquisition. We had some one-
off costs with respect to re-
branding, and if we didn’t have
those we would be much ahead
of budget”.

-Mr Wilson said the compa-
ny’s re-branding as British
American Financial and the
opening of its Abaco branch
office had been received “very
well”, and that once the acqui-
sition was completed “staff, cus-
tomers and clientele supported
and rallied around us”.

“The business has really now
started to do quite a bit better
than it did under the old own-
ership,” Mr Wilson said.

BAB Holdings, via a man-
agement buyout, purchased
British American Insurance
Company from British Ameri-
can International Corporation,
whose chairman was Mauritius-’
based Dawood Rawat. The deal
was part-financed by First-
Caribbean International Bank
(Bahamas).

At the time of the acquisi- |
tion, British American had
more than 200 employees and
agents spread between its three
offices on. New Providence,
Grand Bahama, Exuma and
Abaco.

The company had “more
than” 70,000 policies spread
across:its life and health insur-
ance, investments division and
all products, and 50,000 policy-
holders.

BAB Holdings was led by Mr
Wilson and Chester Cooper,
British American’s president

CARD OF THANKS FOR THE LATE

KETURAH FRANCINE WRIGHT
A Bright New World
by: Helen Steiner Rice,

We feel so sad when those we love
Are touched by deaths dark hand,
But it would ease our sorrow
Lf we could but understand
That death is just a gateway
That all men must pass through
And on the other side of death,
In a world that's bright and new,
Our loved ones wait to welcome us

' To that land free from tears
Where joy becomes eternal
And time is not counted by years.

On behalf of the Wright and Bain families, we want to thank the following

THE TRIBUNE OBITUARIES —

Josephine Virginia Bain
31 January 1929 — 15 July 1999

We can feel You, But we can't see you
hear you in our minds —
We dream o of you nightly,
It's so real we don't want to be awaken.
We see you in our children, your eyes, those cheeks. os
We remember when we said we'll never part cause we —
dreamed the same dreams.
Spiritual experiences that you and us only know of.
We feel as if we are crazy at times for we
one to be with you.
One day Dad & Mom we will be there with you,
Until then we will be waiting,
as you waited for us for nine months.
You loved us before you had us,
And we love you for having us,
with everything you went through for us to be.
Thank you for wanting to be our PARENTS...
_ Remember you said we'll s be together always and
Sorever......

We love n feel and we miss you More!

‘Many religious leaders are
prophet-lying in His name’

FROM page 24

invited to attend or speak at
your conferences, but this one
thing I’m committed to do, I
will boldly declare what thus
said the Lord, and not what’s
said any organisation.

Here’s respect and rever-
ence at work:

A man that works for BEC
or FPL, no matter how many
years he’s been employed by
his employers, when it comes
to him climbing up a utility
pole he has the utmost respect
and reverence for the high ten-
sion wires on that pole. This
worker makes sure his com-
munication is always clear with
the power plant as he adheres
to all the directives, rules and
regulations of his company.
Otherwise, the end result
could be very unhealthy for
him. ee

There are many who say
they are working for God but
have very little respect and
reverence for Him. Their com-
munication with Him, that’s if
they’ve got one, is often one-
sided. -As_ they’re accus-
tommed to begging and plead-
ing for this or that, as a pastor
I do believe with all of my
- heart that it is the will of God

for His children to prosper, but
the church and religious lead-
ers have become so prosperity-
driven to the point that the
respect and reverence for God
has been watered down. Many
religious conferences are
financially motivated. The host
and guest speakers of these
conferences are often the ‘fat
cats’ that leave set financially.
The attendees are there to
hear a good word on how God
is going to bless and prosper
them, as they sow and give.

Watch this!

Let’s look at a conference
that’s held and led by the Spirit
of God versus the many that
are held by the spirit of reli-
gion.

Acts.4:32. And the multi-
tude of them that believed
were of one heart and of one
soul: neither said any of them
that ought of the things which
he possessed was his own;,but
they had all things common.

4: 33. And with great power
He gave the apostles witness of
the resurrection of the Lord
Jesus, and great grace was
upon them all. _

4:34. Neither was there any
among them that lacked, for as
many as were possessors of
lands or houses sold them, and
brought the prices of the things



@ MATTHEW ALLEN

that were sold.

4:35. And laid them down at
the apostles’ feet, and distribu-
tion was made unto every man
according as he had need.

4:36. And Joses, who by the
apostles was surnamed
Barnabas, (which is being
interpreted, The son of conso-
lation,) a Levite, and of the
country of Cyprus,

4:37. Having land, sold it,
and brought the money, and
laid it at the apostles' feet.

Whenever the respect and
reverence for God is brought
back into our churches, the

.body of Christ would need not

travel the world chasing pros-
perity via conferences. With
man’s ordained religious con-
ferences, it’s
Apostles, Pastors and other
guest speakers that are finan-
cially blessed for- their few
hours of entertainment, while
the multitude are left on an
emotional high.

In a Spirit-led conference
there will be no lack among
the believers as that which
took place in (Acts.4:32-37).
The problem that the church
today faces is that there is void
of Apostles with integrity that
God can trust to care for the
needs of His people, and fairly
distribute to every man
according as he had need
(Acts.4:35).

The prosperity that’s being
preached in the church today is
one-sided. Everything is cen-
tred on blessing and sowing
into the man of God (the shep-
herd’s life), and no doubt there
are many, many scriptures to
support this. But as shepherds
our first priority should be the
care, well-being and condition
of the sheepfold, so that when
winter (hard times) comes the
sheep would have enough
wool to cover and protect
themselves and supply the

the Bishops,-

shepherd also. The pursuit of
prosperity through man’s reli-
gious mind-set has brought
about a great fleecing of the
sheepfold within the body of
Christ, rather than God’s pros-
perity from a kingdom mind-
set. Join Pastor Brendalee and

I, along with the family of

Kingdom Minded Fellowship
Center International, every
Sunday Morning at 10.30am

Let’s get the.respect and rev-
erence for God back into our |
lives, and then this country will
truly be a place where He
resides. So, rather than boast-
ing about the Bahamas being a
Christian (religious) nation
where every other religion has
its roots known and unknown,
we would be able to say that
the Bahamas is a nation that’s
dedicated to Jehovah Yahweh
and its citizens are disciples of
Yeshuwa Messiah.

Come on Bahamas, let’s get
back into the FOG (Favor of
God) :

Commonwealth Baptist Church family
hosting sixth annual 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 conference.
The 6th annual “GIRL:FRIEND”
Conference, which started yesterday,
runs 7:30pm each night until Friday,

July 20, at the church in Elizabeth

Estates.

GIRL:FRIEND, an acronym for
“get it real ladies”, tackles issues relat-
ed to family, relationships, independ-

ence, enemies, needs and don’ts. The
conference will also look at helping
women understand how biblical teach-
ing can be applied to each area of their
lives, said Linda Gibson, assistant co-
ordinator of the conference.

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 confer-
ence. Each speaker is free to tackle any
of the issues that make up the
GIRL:FRIEND acronym.

“The purpose of this conference is to
help women reach their full potential
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 deal-
ing with enemies. So this conference is
helping women to know how to deal
with everything they face in life,” she
added.

The GIRL:FRIEND conference got

“HIM (Health,

started six years ago after Bishop
Arnold Josey, pastor of
Commonwealth Baptist, developed the
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 way that is
pleasing to God.

ference registration interested persons

Vatican: Pedophilia is not
specific to Catholic Church

@ By NICOLE WINFIELD
Associated Press Writer



Says other institutions should also take
responsibility in fight against problem

VATICAN CITY (AP) — The- Vatican said
Tuesday it was committed to leading the fight
against pedophilia, but said the problem was not
specific to the Catholic Church and that other
institutions should take responsibility as well.

Vatican spokesman the Rev Federico Lombardi
spoke to Vatican Radio after the Los Angeles
archdiocese reached a US$660 million settlement
with more than 500 alleged victims of clergy sex
abuse, the largest payout yet in the United States
scandal.

_ Lombardi said the agreement “closed a painful
page” and allowed the Church to look ahead to
prevention efforts and creating a secure environ-
ment for young people in the Church.

“The Church is obviously above.all saddened by
the suffering of the victims and their families, by
the profound wounds caused by the inexcusable
and grave behaviour of various church members,
and is determined to commit itself in every way to
prevent the repettion of such wickedness,” he
said.

However, he said, other institutions should also
take similar responsibility, since sex abuse of
young people is not exclusive to the Catholic
Church. “They too should take decisions and nec-
essary measures,” he said, without naming the
institutions.

Regardless, Lombardi said the Church would
“participate as a leader in the fight against
pedophilia, which today involves growing sectors
of society in many countries of the world.”

Pope Benedict XVI has spoken out strongly
against the clergy sex scandal, endorsing efforts to
find the truth about allegations and help the vic-
tims heal.

In an October 2006 meeting with bishops from
Ireland — an overwhelmingly Roman Catholic
country where all but one seminary closed follow-
ing repeated sex scandals — Benedict urged the
bishops to do what was necessary to rebuild confi-
dence and trust among the faithful.

“It is important to establish the truth of what
happened in the past, to take whatever steps are
necessary to prevent it from occurring again, to
ensure that the principles of justice are fully
respected and, above all, to. bring healing to the
victims and to all those affected by these egregious
crimes,” he said then.

While they were his most explicit remarks as
pope, Benedict made his views known in March
2005, when as Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger he
denounced what he called “filth” in the Church
“even among those ... in the priesthood.”

Those words, part of the meditations he com- : . ;
posed for the Ces Friday Via Crucis procession, @ POPE Benedict XVI has spoken out strongly against the clergy sex scandal, endorsing

were seen by many as a denunciation of the clergy efforts to find the truth about allegations and help the victims heal.

one she told about how, after one of
her preaching engagements, she was
invited by a certain well-placed lady
to dinner. The lady’s words of wel-
come as she arrived were: “My dear
Mrs Booth, that meeting was dread-
ful.” “What do you mean, dear?”
asked Mrs Booth. “Oh, when you
were speaking, I was looking at
those people opposite to me. Their
faces were so terrible, many of them.
I don’t think I shall sleep tonight!”
“Why, dear, don’t you know them?”
Mrs Booth asked. “Certainly not!”
the hostess replied. “Well, that is
interesting,” Mrs. Booth said. “I did
not bring them with me from
London; they are your neighbours!”

The Golden Rule, “Love your
neighbour as yourself” (Luke 10:27),
which we hear in today’s gospel is
not just a Christian thing. Every con-
ceivable religion and culture in the
world has the Golden Rule in one
form or another. Here is a sampling:

Judaism: “What is hateful to you,
do not to your fellow man. That is
the law: all the rest is commentary.”

Islam: “No one of you is a believer
until he desires for his brother that
which he desires for himself.”

Hinduism: “This is the sum of
duty: do naught unto others which
would cause you pain if done to
you.”

Buddhism: “Hurt not others in
ways that you yourself would find
hurtful.”

Confucianism: “Do not unto oth-
ers what you would not have them

do unto you.”
Rule

If the Golden Rule was so well-
known in ancient cultures, why then
did Jesus spend so much time teach-
ing it as if it was a new thing? It is
because Jesus brought a comptetely
new understanding to the command-
ment.

The Golden Rule is understood
differently in different religions and

~ cultures. And the key to its under-

standing lies in the question that the
lawyer asks Jesus in today’s Gospel:
“Who is my neighbour?” (verse 29).
Who is my neighbour that I have an
obligation to love?
The new thing in Jesus’ teaching

’ of neighbourly love is his insistence

that all humanity is one big neigh-
bourhood. Thus he broke down the
walls of division and the borders of
prejudice and suspicion that humans
erected between “us” and “them”.
To bring home this point he tells the
story of the Good Samaritan. This

man, regarded as Enemy Number
One by the Jewish establishment
simply because he is Samaritan, is
the one who finally proves himself to
be neighbour to the Jewish man in
need. Thus to the question “Who is
my neighbour”, Jesus’ answer is:
Anyone and everyone without

exception.
Lady

The lady, who invited Mrs Booth
to dinner, understood her “neigh-
bour” to be limited only to those on
her social and economic level. Mrs
Booth reminded her that her “neigh-
bour” should include the nobodies
of society. Like this lady, we all need
to be reminded that the Christian
understanding of “neighbour”
admits of no borders. Today must be
that day in our country when we tear
down the walls of racial divides,
political indifference, social injus-
tices, the economic gap, religious
intolerance.

Over the weekend I went to visit a
sick relative of mine in Princess
Margaret Hospital. There were at
least a dozen family members and
friends around her bed, while the
lady not to far away from us was
totally alone. I inquired about it only
to be told she hardly has visitors. It’s
amazing in our country why we ask
such obvious questions like: Why is
the crime rate is so high? Or why are
so many murders being committed?
Why so many cases of teenage preg-
nancy? :

I am convinced that it all goes
back to the family and how we treat
each other. I am still amazed that on
this island 21 miles wide and seven
miles long we live in subdivisions for
years and do not know the person
who lives in the two houses down
the road. Why is it we have so many
children in homes run by the state?
Why aew you are not able to get a
bed in any senior citizen care facility
in this country?

All these questions are difficult
ones, but they are difficult to accept
because we live in a country that is
suppose to be Christian. The gospel
challenges us all to dismantle our
walls, so as to live in peace and har-
mony with our brothers and sisters,
and become neighbour to one anoth-
er. We must try harder to become
the Catherine Booths of our land.
We must strive harder to help eradi-

-cate the root of poverty, indiffer-

ence, apathy and a certain religiosity
that is fast becoming popular in our
land replacing Christianity.

Church Cathedral.

The daughter of.Canon Neil
Eric Roach, former rector of
Holy Cross Parish, Ms Roach’s
ordination was an_ historic
moment in the life of the local
church, creating the first
father/daughter team in the
diocese.

Paulette Cartwright was

- temporary structure that exists.

Traffic slowed through down-
town Nassau, as motorists.and
passers-by glanced at the plac-
ards and listened to the vendors
sing the hymn: “We shall not
be moved.”

Spokesperson for the vendors
and woodcartvers coalition Tela-

tor Strachan told The Tribune ~

that the vendors have three
main issues they wish to

communicate to the govern- |

ment.

The first is that vendors will
not accept a move to the Prince
- George Dock warehouse} sec-
ondly, vendors would like a new
tent to replace the temporary
covering, along with upgrades

to the temporary site such as a

_ cooling system; and thirdly, the

vendors want government to
build the new market on the
original Bay Street site.

Ms Strachan said that ven-
dors. have only had one meeting
with the minister responsible
fot the market construction,
Earl Deveatix, since the FNM
caine to power, with a subse-
quent meeting being cancelled
by the minister.

“We don’t know why we «u:

haven’t heard from him,” she

said.

The vendors, Ms Strachan —
continued, need to know “what

is happening with our liveli-.
hood.” .

Ms Strachan brought three
petitions signed by 300 vendors
and wood carvers intending to
present it to Prime Minister
Ingraham, Mr Deveaux and the
leader of the opposition.

However, the prime minister,
who was leaving yesterday to
attend the Caricom heads of

Airport union executives file
injunction against president

fi By ALISON LOWE

Tribune Staff Reporter __

- ABOUT half of the executive officers of the Airport, Airlines and
Allied Workets Union have filed an injunction against the president of
the union for allegedly acting contrary to the union’s constitution by
seeking to have certain officers removed.

Secretary-general Anthony Bain, treasurer Susan Palmer, two
trustees and a chief shop steward, claim the president, Nelerene Hard-
ing, is threatening trade-unionism in the Bahamas by seeking to have



the executive body dissolved one year into a three year term.

Russell calls NIB meeting after

THE mounting claims of
worker dissatisfaction with the
management at the National
Insurance Board — which
include sexual harassment alle-
gations — has led the minister
responsible to call a special
meeting at the department.

spoken with The Tribune over
the last few weeks accusing cer-
tain managers of repeated ver-
bal abuse of staff and illegiti-
mate transfers, while another
manager has been accused of
intimidating staff who do not
agree to provide’ sexual
favours.

employee said yesterday tit “i

morale at NIB is “very low”.

“T been. working for the
National Insurance Board for
30 years, and I never experi-
enced this kind of torture,”
another employee said several
days ago.

Yet another frustrated staff

member told The Tribune: “We
feel as if the PLP is still in pow-
er. We ain’t feel like the gov-
ernment changed. Because all
these things that was happening
under them, still are happening.”

This source said that the staff
is not advocating the firing of
any managers, but they are

. demanding some “justice.”




Kenneth Russell, the minis-
fer responsible for NIB,
cknowledged that he has
eceived some of these com-
laints, but said that he needs to
hear both sides before he can
decide what needs to be done to

‘solve the problems.

“I do have some concerns
with NIB. Those concerns will
be placed on the table at the
meeting (today),” he said.

Mr Russell told The Tribune
that it is an open meeting and
workers are encouraged to pub-
licly voice their complaints so
that he can evaluate them with
the managers present.

“If they don’t come and pre-
sent their case then I am put in
a bind because now I got to go

everything else on individuals

“No one has expressed any

Russell continued. But he

as it relates to Grand Bahama,
Pineridge MP Kwasi Thomp-



. son said yesterday... o<
Giving his contribution to the
debate on the Speéch from the

Throne in parliaméat yesterday
morning, Mr Thoritpson said
that it is “evident that Grand
Bahama, like the previous 10
years of the FNM administra-
tion will be a priority for this
government.”

Mr Thompson also praised

the focus that was given to the

tourism sector in the Speech
from the Throne.

He said that the Ministry: of
Tourism has already started to

_ implement a plan of action to
‘revive Grand

Jahama’s tourism
industry.

Addressing other areas of —
employment in Grand Bahama,
the Pinetidge MP said that spe-
cific attention must be paid to
the revival of the island’s suf-
fering economy.

“There are unacéeptable lev-
els of unemployment and

Mr Thompson said that the

He further noted that in the
Speech, the government recog-
nised the need to create jobs
and expand Bahamian owner-
ship of the economy.

In Grand Bahama, and the

Test offthe country, he said, peo-

ple are especially looking for- ©

ward to the announced simpli-
fication of the process of obtain-
ing business licences.

“In Pineridge, like the rest of
the Bahamas, we have many
persons who have innovative
ideas and wish to move from
idea to profit-making business.
The procedure unfortunately
can be technical, See
and: long.

“The policy of providing an
omnibus business licence will
no doubt assist small businesses
who wish to move from one
area to another or who wish to
expand,” he said.

Bahamians, he said, can also
look forward to legislation that

. simplifies the government loan

guarantee programme for small
and medium sized businesses.
“Constituents, Grand
Bahamians and Bahamians as
a whole have complained about
the complicated process to
obtain a government guaran-
teed loan for small businesses.
“We have talked about diver-
sifying our economy, to this end
Bahamians must be empowered

to create their own economic.
opportunities,” he said.

Employess
reported in
protest at First
Caribbeam

LATE yesterday afternoon,
The Tribune received uncon-
firmed reports that employees
at all First Caribbean branches
staged a protest in connection
with salary issues.

Bank customers called in
claiming that all employees
came to work wearing casual
clothing instead of their stan-
dard uniforms.

The Bahamas Financial Ser-
vices Union, who represents
bank employees, would not
deny or confirm that a protest
had taken place.

“We choose to reserve com-
ment at this time,” the union’s
treasurer, Linda Evans said yes-
terday.

“I go to the First Caribbean ©

banks all the time and have nev-
er seen anything like it, some-
thing must be going on,” one
customer said.

Another customer claimed
that she was told by employees
that they were protesting over
salary issues.

Despite the alleged protest,
customers yesterday received
normal service at the bank.

The Tribune was unable to
contact First Caribbean man-
agement as the reports about
the protest were made after
banking hours.

Haitian police
say DEA

@ HAITI
Port-au-Prince

HAITIAN police said Tues-
day that US Drug Enforcement
Administration agents carried
out an operation in the
Caribbean country but did not
confirm reports that the target
was an ex-rebel leader alleged-
ly linked to drug trafficking,
according to Associated Press.

National Police spokesman
Frantz Lerebours told Associ-
ated Press that the DEA
worked in conjunction with
Haitian anti-drug agents Mon-
day in the southern coastal town
of Les Cayes, home to former
rebel leader Guy Philippe.

Private broadcaster Radio
Metropole reported Monday
night that agents captured
Philippe after swooping in on
his home with five helicopters
and two planes. But the station
later changed its report and said
he was still being sought.

DEA officials and the US
Embassy in Port-au-Prince have
declined to comment. The US
drug agency has conducted
operations in Haiti in the past.

Lerebours said DEA and Hait-
ian anti-drug officers also arrest-
ed local businessman Lavaud
Francois on Monday in the north-
western town of Gonaives, a grit-
ty port town considered to be a
base for drug traffickers.

Gray criticises government
over response to crime rate

@ By PAUL TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter

FORMER PLP cabinet min-
ister Alfred Gray launched an
all out attack on the govern-
ing FNM yesterday, criticising
the party for their response to
the escalating crime rate.

Mr Gray’s comments caused
him to clash with Minister of
National Security Tommy
Turnquest. It was one of many
angry exchanges that erupted
in a heated morning session of
the House of Assembly.

Mr Gray, who labelled the
FNM a “minority govern-
ment”, mocked’ the FNM’s
campaign slogan “It’s a Mat-
ter of Trust” stating that they
can only be “trusted to do one
thing — victimise.

“You can trust them to
destroy the lives of people,
especially who they think don’t
support them. You can trust
this FNM government to
destroy everything that is good
so long as they had little or
nothing to do with it. Destruc-
tion is their first name. And I
say you can trust them to do
that.

“Mr Speaker, deceit is
almost a sinful word. Crime
in our country is not a politi-
cal issue. I have said it from
the day I entered parliament.
The FNM, though, caused the
Bahamian people to believe
that they had the answers.
And they accepted that lock,
stock, and barrel to only hear
the minister say now that
unfortunately we don’t have
the answers!” Mr Gray
exclaimed.

He said that under the FNM,
crime has only got worse. The
MICAL MP said that “victim-
isation, hate, and spite” can-

not be avoided by the FNM.
“Mr Speaker, I came out of
the belly of Christie, Ingraham
and Co and I know those two
men (PLP leader Perry
Christie, and FNM leader
Hubert Ingraham) like nobody
else in this parliament does.
“And I can tell you when it
comes to spite, you can not dis-
agree with the leadership of
the FNM and don’t get

destroyed if he could destroy
you. That’s the nature of the
man,” he said.

Mr ‘Gray added that the
FNM has started its adminis-
tration with victimisation and
has not stopped yet.

He drew attention to some
police officers who he said had
been removed from the
Tourism Patrol division.

We applaud Speaker Smith

LEGISLATORS had barely got their feet
under the debating table of the House of
Assembly yesterday morning when one of
their number was threatened with expulsion by
the Speaker. ;

Obviously, newly appointed Speaker Alvin
Smith is on a mission to restore decorum,
respect and dignity to House debates.

Parliamentarians complain of the lack of
respect among this nation’s youth, but fail to
set an example in their televised debates.

“How can you discipline your children
when the country’s leaders show no respect for
themselves, or the Speaker?” asked a com-
plaining parent. “Instead of discussing the
people’s business they end up brawling among
themselves. Having this example set at the
top, what can ‘you expect from those at the
bottom?”

That is a good question.

Yesterday’s argument started when newly
elected Montagu MP Loretta Butler-Turner
drew it to the Speaker’s attention that Golden
Gates MP Shane Gibson was using his laptop
computer. It was her understanding that mem-
bers were not allowed to use electronic equip-
ment in the House. The Speaker asked him to
desist.

Mr Gibson protested. He claimed that the
laptop was just sitting in front of him on the
table. However, in an obvious act of provoca-
tion he defied the Speaker by opening his
computer and starting to fiddle with it.

The Speaker then ordered him from the ~

Chamber for the rest of the day. Again Mr
Gibson challenged the Speaker’s authority by
refusing to leave. As can be expected, there
was an uproar.

Tommy Turnquest, leader of government
business in the House, asked for a five minute
recess. Speaker Smith, Mr Turnquest and Dr
Bernard Nottage, opposition leader of gov-
ernment business in the House, left the cham-
ber. On their return Mr Gibson was quick to
apologise.

Although his apology was dripping with
sarcasm, at least it was an apolo

The electronic debate should have been
settled last month when Mr Gibson again
made a mockery of the House by answering
calls on his Blackberry while on his feet debat-
ing the Budget. During his debate, Mr Gibson
stopped mid-sentence to answer his Black-
berry and read to the House a text message
sent from a member of the public, commenting
on the points he was making in his debate.

When it came time yesterday for the lpm
lunch break, the question was put to the
House that they break for lunch. No debate
starts on this motion, members usually give the
impression that they are just waiting to bolt for
the door. But yesterday a debate was started.
Speaker Smith paid no attention. He rose,
descended from the Chair, and in Speaker’s
procession left the House. He did it so quick-
ly and with such deliberation that members
hadn’t an opportunity to show their respect by
rising to their feet ashe left. —

This is one Speaker who has made it obvi-
ous that he does not intend to entertain any
childish games.

Only one of a small group who used to sit
nibbling food during debate in the last parlia-
ment has been returned to the Chamber. Obvi-
ously this obnoxious discourtesy will no longer
be tolerated by this Speaker. If a member is a
diabetic, and needs'a bite of sustenance, he or
she can discreetly leave the chamber.

Also banned will be the off-colour e-mail
jokes that were often passed around the table
by a certain member. And what about the
pair who scanned pornographic web sites
instead of listening to the debate? These per-
sons are no longer in the House, but just in
case any newcomers get the same bright idea,

‘they should ban the thought.

When the lunchtime newscast came on yes-
terday and reported on Mr Gibson and his
laptop, it was interesting to hear the indig-
nant reaction of several maids. “We ain’t pay
him to go to the House to play with his com-
puter,” said one. “What he got his computer in
the House for?” asked another. These two
ladies were angry at their representatives not
giving their full attention to the people’s busi-
ness.

' The disapproving eye of the public will
now be focused on laptops in the House.

We also expect to see the end of those friv-

olous points of order, which served no useful ~

purpose except to interrupt a speaker’s train of
thought and extend the debate. One member
who was particularly adept at this has taken
the practice to another place.

In the last House PLP parliamentarians
rewrote the House’s rule book. Obviously,
they did not expect to be in Opposition

_ because it-is written especially to curb the

opposition.

mination to restore dignity to the Chamber.

this nation back
from the monsters
we have created?

EDITOR, The Tribune.

THE singing prophet sang
“too much murder” this is
what we as a nation are grap-
pling with today. But no one
seems to have a solid solution
or we claim to be baffled at
what we have become.

As a teenager in the early
seventies one was taught to
respect all living things. Daily
chores, Sunday school, thanks,
no thanks and prayer before
bed was a MUST in most
every home on my block. Vio-
lence was something that was
joked or bragged about after it
happened, it almost never
escalated into anything seri-
ous, much less murder. There
were times when there was a
lot of rock and bottle throw-
ing, if one had a bad experi-
ence in a particular area and
was foolish enough to pass
through that corner. But no
one ever looked up anyone for
being chased out of their
neighbourhood, with the intent
to shoot or stab them to death.
We all knew the value of life
and respected that and feared
even the thought or conversa-
tion of killing someone. If you
spoke of killing on the blocks
setting, you would be told
“Boy you mussie crazy, I outa
here” and you would not have
any backup.

- There was ganja selling and
smoking all over, but if Mr or

‘Mrs Jones is passing every-

thing is put on hold until they
pass, that was respect and the
fear of this reaching home.
Monies from the sale of ganja
never made, the many that
sold it very rich, so the loss of
being ripped off never had the
effect of losing so much that
you would want to kill for.

Then came the eighties
along with it cocaine, some-
thing only a few knew about,
back in the late seventies, it
was one of those well kept
secrets.

But like we all know word
travels fast especially when lots
of money is involve, everyone
was turning their heads and
making bread, turning their
backs and making lots of cash.
This was from the politician,
church pastors, policemen,
bankers, grandparents, parents
and yes, the children.

But they were not ready for
the side effects, in came crack
cocaine, everyone was smok-

_ ing it, even grandma and

“That’s. where we lost our-

ed our neighbours to the south.
Now with nobody looking after
the country other things,
including immigration got out
of hand, everybody want the
lavish lifestyle that was going
around. Bahamians got so
greedy they were killing their
neighbours to the far south and
taking their drugs and those
people came here and took
lives.

More than half of this coun-
try knew what was going on,
but greed cast a bright picture
on things “lavish house, pool,
nice furnishing, fat bank
account and fancy cars.” The
majority in this country were
too busy to be neighbourly and
it became a dog-eat-dog world,
in some homes parents were
fighting children for drugs,
accepting monies and gifts
from children who they knew
sold drugs, drugs even been
hidden in the church and pas-
tors receiving monies for it,
bankers allowing large sums to
be deposited knowing it to be
blood money. The family
home as we knew it was com-
pletely turned upside down,
with no love and respect in the
homes and kids not learning
the meaning of forgiveness and
the integration of foreign influ-
ence into these street gangs,
meant that we have a new bred
of Bahamian youths. Youths
who are taught you have to
take what you want and die
trying to take it and if there is
resistance it is kill or be killed.

What baffles me is when I
see the hypocrites on televi-
sion and newspapers question-
ing what is going on with the
youths of this nation, this is
what corruption breeds and

‘this is just the beginning. These

youngsters need jobs, some-
thing to do, other than walking
around with their pants below
their hips and talking about
how many women and guns
they have and who they will
shoot or stab if they look at
them the wrong way.

Drastic measures need to be
taken, this is not the time to
be nice, sympathy is something
these young men are not look-
ing for, power is what they

yearn for, so power has to con- °

trol them. The power of the

Cancer
screenings
to be held
in Bimini

THE Cancer Society of the
Bahamas will hold prostate and
cervical cancer screenings ses-
sion in Bimini next month.

According to the society,
screenings are being held every
month on a different island.

Prostate and cervical cancer
screenings were held in San Sal-
vador earlier this month, and
previous screenings were held
in Long Island, Exuma,
Eleuthera, Cat Island. Screen-
ings will be held in October in
Abaco.

The screenings are carried
out at local clinics. Doctors will
offer free breast examinations
and pap smears for women and
free prostate specific antigen
(PSA) screening for the men.

September is Prostate Can-
cer Awareness Month and
October is Breast’ Cancer
Awareness Month.

US says Cuban
constraints
made visa quota
impossible

HAVANA

The US said Tuesday it will
not be able to meet the quota of
20,000 visas it distributes to
Cubans each year, complaining
that Havana has “placed unrea-
sonable constraints” on Ameri-
can diplomats on the island.

The announcement came sev-
eral hours after Cuba’s Foreign
Ministry chided Washington for
issuing visas too slowly, sug-
gesting the delay was a delib-
‘erate attempt to destabilize its
government.

“The Government of Cuba
has failed to authorise the nec-
essary personnel and materials
the US Interests Section needs
to function effectively,” the US
Interests Section in Havana said
in a statement e-mailed to jour-
nalists.

It accused Cuba of denying

visas to Interest Section per- °

sonal, failing to approve hirings

to fill 47.staff vacancies and ,,

blocking the importation of
materials and supplies.
How many visas the US will
issue for Cubans was unclear,
~ and an Interest Section official
declined to give more details.
_ Under a 1994 accord meant
to discourage Cubans from
attempting dangerous and ille-
gal sea voyages to America,
Washington has used a lottery
system to grant visas to.at least
20,000 Cubans each fiscal year
ending September 30.

Earlier Tuesday, Cuba’s For-

eign Ministry issued a statement
complaining that through June
30, only 10,724 Cubans had
been granted visas — just over
half the annual minimum.

Tribune Freeport Reporter

FREEPORT - Like a
phoenix rising from the ash-
es, the Atlantis II will once
again set sail on a new era of
historical research and explo-
ration — 10 years after it was
retired.

A small group of persons
gathered at the Freeport Har-
bour on Wednesday evening
for the historical re-christening
of the ship, which underwent a
complete $3.2 million restora-
tion at the shipyard in Grand
Bahama.

Instead of the traditional
ceremonial champagne chris-
tening, City of Freeport chief
councillor Anita Doherty, who
performed the official re-chris-
tening with assistance of Cap-
tain Gray Henrikson, broke a
bottle of Kalik across the

ship’s bow after the cham-
pagne bottle accidentally
slipped from her hand over-
board after two failed
attempts to break it.

Father Canon Harry Bain
blessed the vessel, which dis-
played the raised flags of the
United States of America and
the Bahamas.

Ministry of Tourism officials
and several residents were also
on hand for the ceremony.

Gordon Hunsucker, the
owner of Atlantis II, said the
occasion was one of historical
significance not only for the
vessel, but also for the
Bahamas.

“This is a very historic
event. This ship, which was
originally built back 1962 and
has had a very famous history,
is one of the most famous
ships in the scientific and
marine community.





ye ee bE RS

@ THE Atlantis

“For this to take place here in
the Bahamas, where the ship is
being re-christened, is very his-
torical,” he said.

Atlantis IT was originally built

for the Wood Hole Oceano-
graphic Institute (WHOI) for
research and exploration.

It has been around the world
nine times and has logged more

miles — over one million — at sea
than any other research vessel
in history.

The Atlantis II was involved
with the first sighting of the
Titanic. After 33 years, the ship
was retired in 1996. It was sold
to a private party who was °
about to sell it for scrap when
Mr Hunsucker purchased it last
year.

Mr Hunsucker said the newly
restored vessel is in better shape
than it ever was. “We wanted
to re-christen the ship again to
start a new era of exploration
and adventure that will be going
worldwide.”

He said the ship is currently a
US registered vessel. It is about
210 feet long and 44 feet wide.
It is equipped with an explorer’s
lounge, a gym, an extensive dive
walker, two laboratories, retail
space, and a first-class dining
room with a fireplace.

Collie defends calling of Hope Town elections

@ By BRENT DEAN
Tribune Staff Reporter

THE Minister of Lands and
Local Government has
defended his government’s
decision to hold local govern-
ment elections for the Hope
Town Council — arguing that
two councillors were never
properly appointed by the
PLP. government.

Mr Collie told the House that -

there is no record at his min-
istry of the official instruments
of appointment for the two local
councillors that have become
the centre of controversy.

“The only appointment that
could have taken place could
be or would be, by verbal, or
word of mouth,” he said.

Former minister of Local
Government Alfred Gray has
declared that he appointed
Chris and Joe Albury after
only one person nominated
for the three posts in the last
local election, as was his
authority under the law.

In response to Mr Collie’s
latest claim, Mr Gray said:
“Two members under the act
were appointed by this minis-
ter. No community has a right
to. change what the law says.
They may request an election,
but when an election was
called two months before that,

nobody nominated. And so an
abuse of the system was being
sought,” he said.

“JT did not permit it,” Mr
Gray added.

On Tuesday, Chief Coun-
cillor Jeremy Sweeting blasted
the government for calling

~ new elections for the two seats

before the end of the term.

“Unfortunately, in the last .

week, the ministry of local
government under the direc-
tion of Prime Minister Ingra-
ham, is in the process of firing
two councillors on our council,
and hold elections for the two
members. | find this an act of
complete political motivation
and skullduggery of the high-
est order,” he said. :

Mr Sweeting declared that
Mr Collie is only following the
wishes of the prime minister,
and that the move to oust
Messrs Albury comes from a
politically motivated group.

Section 18 of the Local
Government Act gives the
minister the authority to call
elections when councillors are
appointed, rather than elected.

However, the same section
of the Act does not compel the
minister to call an election, if

for example a petition is cir ;
culated, which was doné ‘itr’
2006 by 120 of the 200 eligible’

voters for the council posts, ";

Castro says
rich nations
causing
brain drain
MHAVANA

.FIDEL Castro blamed the
United States and other rich
nations on Wednesday for
olicies that encourage an
‘international brain drain of
doctors and scientists from
Africa and Latin America,
‘according to Associated Press.
“Encouraging this type of
‘emigration has become an
gfficial state policy in a num-
ebeér of (developed) countries,
which use incentives and pro-
_. scedures especially tailored to

_ jsuit this end,” Castro wrote
'in the latest of the essays he
has been writing every few

Castro cited a 2000 US law
‘that increased the number of
temporary work visas issued

Ito highly qualified immigrants :

“Canada, Australia, Germany

IT’S MORE THAN JUST OIL.
IT’S LIQUID ENGINEERING!

THE Defence Force is to
receive the first of four high-
tech vessels to aid in the joint
counter-narcotics © efforts
between the Bahamas and the
United States of America.

The 48-foot dauntless inter-
ceptor craft will be equipped
with the latest in technology and
manned by highly trained offi-
cers. The first will sail from
Florida on October 15. .

This was announced by Min-
ister of National Security Tom-
my Turnquest at a press con-
ference Tuesday at the Cabinet
Office.

There, the press was official-

. ly introduced to Admiral James

Stavridis, commander of the
Southern Command of the
United States Navy.

Also present were Peter
Deveaux-Isaacs, deputy per-
manent secretary in the Min-

istry of National Security; Dr
Brent Hardt, Chargé d’ Affaires
at the US Embassy, and David
Foran, narcotics affairs officer at
the embassy.

’ Earlier, Admiral Stavridis
paid a courtesy call on Prime
Minister Hubert Ingraham.

Praise

Calling the admiral a “great
friend of the Bahamas”, Mr
Turnquest noted that the naval
officer has been very helpful
in assisting the Bahamas in
Operation Enduring Friend-
ship.

Mr Turnquest said the dona-
tion of the vessels fits “perfect-
ly” with the government's poli-
cies on crime and counter nar-
cotics.

“We are very concerned

about the level of crime and the
need to deal with it.

“We are also concerned
about the trafficking of nar-
cotics; we are concerned about
the movement of illegal
migrants and apprehension of
them before they land.

“We are also pleased with the
level of co-operation that we
have received; we’ve always had
an excellent relationship with
the United States of America,”
Mr Turnquest said.

With The Bahamas being a
“staunch ally” in the war on
drugs, Admiral Stavridis said,
the US will “continue to work
with you on a variety of pro-
grammes to enhance both your
security and our security.”

However, Admiral Stavridis

‘warned, criminals will also be
working to devise new strate- .

gies to elude authorities.

260 tons of cocaine seized
last year en route to US

LAST year, 260 metric tons
of cocaine was intercepted en
route to ‘the United States
through the Bahamas..

The bulk of the drugs was dis-
covered through the collabora-

them to represent the govern-

“The government is not
minded to chase them to Prince
George Dock. That’s always
been their choice and their
option — one of the options we
put before them,” he said.

Mr Deveaux said the govern-
ment has only made one deci-

that was to cancel the contract

Straw vendors
stage protest

When asked why government
terminated the contract, Mr
Deveaux said that the primary
reason was “money.”

“When we took office and
got a feel for what we needed to
do with the country’s infra-
structure, we did not think it
fair to allocate $23 million, or
possibly $30 million to a single
building without taking stock
of all the other things we have
to do,” he said.

The $23 million expenditure,
Mr Deveaux said, would have
accounted for nearly half the
capital budget of his ministry
for one year.

“We did not think that that
was an option we wanted to
exercise this early in our term,”
he said.

Mr Deveaux did not say how
much money was reasonable to
be spent on the market, but he
said that a cabinet subcommit-
tee on the market construction
is set to report to cabinet in 90
days.

When asked if government
will build a market on Bay
Street, Mr Deveaux merely
said— quoting the FNM mani-
festo — that his government is
committed to building a straw

market. He did not specify
where.

A vendor told The Tribune
that the government’s rchash-
ing of the planned moved to
Prince George Dock after all
the work and planning that
went into the site on Bay Street
is “foolishness”.

“We are not yo-yos. We are
human beings — educated
human beings,” she said.

“It’s not fair what they are

doing to us. They are not treat-
ing the straw vendors with jus-
tice,” she said.

“This is not a political situa-
tion. There are persons here
that support him (the prime
minister),” another male ven-
dor declared.

PLP Deputy leader, Cynthia
Pratt, with six other PLP MPs
spoke with the vendors, and she
told the press:

“The people are concerned.

They have mortgages, they have
school fees, they have bills to
pay.

“They are concerned with
their future. And so I want it
to be clear to me what’s going
to happen to the vendors. I
believe that’s why they are here.
They have a right to know
where their future is, what’s
going to happen to them tomor-
row...they are taxpayers just like
all of us.”

Richard Curry, sales manager
at Lightbourn Trading Compa-

aware of the recall and had
informed all of the stores LTC

He indicated that there were
a minority of other stores which
his company does not supply,
but, he added, he had also con-
tacted those shops to let them
know about the recall.

However, when The Tribune

In addition, he said that while in a democratic

This too, he said, the leader of the opposition
should accept and move on.

When asked by host Michael Pintard what was
his reaction to criticism by members of the former
government that despite their support of the
church, the Christian Council failed to come to
their aid when they needed it.

“I know the former government would have
liked us to go on their platform to campaign, but
I will not do it. The Christian Council was not
formed to support any political platform. Our
job is not to put our stamp on a political party.
The effectiveness of the Christian Council can
only be maintained by remaining neutral. We
are the moral gate keepers of the country,” Bish-

leader of opposition business
in the House, said that Mr
Gibson’s perceived reluctance
to remove the computer was
because he was seeking to find
in the rule book of the House
where it was stated that per-
sonal computers were not
allowed.

“T have asked for the mem-
ber of Golden Gates to with-
draw himself from the cham-
ber and that is for the rest of
today’s proceedings,” Mr
Smith said.

After a number of persons
in the opposition threatened
that if one of them was dis-
missed, the entire opposition
would walk out, Tommy
Turnquest, leader of govern-
ment business in the House,
called for a quick recess of
Parliament.

During the recess, Mr Turn-
quest, and Dr Nottage met
with Mr Smith in the Speak-
er’s chambers. Following the
recess, the MP for Golden
Gates made a full apology to

the Speaker before the House’

was finally allowed to contin-
ue with its business.

Mr Gibson: “Mr Speaker, I
accept your ruling, on the use
of computers and I regret hav-
ing not followed your instruc-
tions in terms of the use of the
computer. But, as I said, dur-
ing my Budget presentation,
Iused you, and the Member
for Lucaya as my mentors.

‘ “JT really admired the way
you carried yourselves in Par-

. liament and I thought it would

be appropriate for me to
always mentor somebody in
terms of whatever you do in
life. And I regret not having
followed your instructions
about the computer,” he said.

The Speaker then withdrew

his order for Mr Gibson to _ E

remove himself from the
chamber.

_ Airport union

executives
FROM page one

They and their lawyer,
Fayne Thompson, allege that
the president’s behaviour is
“unheard of” in the history of
trade unionism in this coun-
try.

According to a sworn affi-
davit, Ms Harding has physi-
cally “locked out” Mr Bain —
one of several officers she is
said to want removed — pre-
venting him from entering the
building to carry out union
business.

The affidavit stated that the
officers experienced a “wors-
ening relationship” with Ms
Harding after a September
2006 meeting in which they
raised concerns about a
$78,000 deposit, constituted
of union funds, made by the
president on the union’s
behalf for a new building. The
$78,000 deposit was subse-
quently lost “due to the pres-
ident’s unilateral negligent
actions,” the statement
claimed, and has not been

' recovered to date.

The meeting also saw the
officers seek clarification on
significant “discrepancies” in
the union’s operating account,
according to the affidavit.

The document states that
the questions on these mat-
ters by the executive officers
“clearly annoyed” Ms Hard-

ing.
Ms Harding is quoted in the
affidavit as having said: “I do
not trust the executive, and
us executive do not trust
” It was at this point, ina |
Tue 6 meeting, that she then .
indicated that she would “dis-
solve the union’s executive
.and that she would take the
executives off the union,” the
affidavit said.

Mr Thompson said that the

president has no power to do

. this, as the officers have been

elected by the members to

-serve.a three-year term. vig taat

‘Yésterday, Mr Bain, Msi.
Palmer and trustee Fredericka ee

‘Baker, convened.a press con-

ference at Mr Thompson’s ©
office, to fully inform

i AAAWU members why they » eM

are filing the injunction — in.

- which five officers are named

as plaintiffs.
‘They claim reports leaked

to the press beginning in Jan-

uary: of a coup plot against the ©
president by certain executive
officers are untrue.

‘Reports have been appear-

‘ing in the media since the start

of the year indicating that the
working relationship between .
-Ms Harding and certain other

union executives had “broken «... »...

down.” au

They claim that the presi-. ~
dent has. been working “uni-
laterally”, without consulting
other executive members as
dictated by the union’s-con- .
stitution; and has on numer-
ous occasions used a “bogus
power” to call meetings.

Mr Thompson claims the.
legal action is not a “hostile”
one, but an effort to ensure
the union’s constitution is not
abused and that unionism in
this country is.“‘safeguarded.”

The: matter is complicated
by. the fact that in February,
Ms © Harding ~~ publicly
announced her intention to
resign by June but has as yet
not stepped down.

Six other executive officers
are said to be in support of
Ms Harding in the dispute.

Yesterday, Ms Harding said
that she and the members had
been advised by secretary ‘gen-
eral of the National Congress
of Trade Unions, Robert Far-

-quharson not.to speak to the ~

public about the matter until
today.

She did say, however, that a
meeting was to be held last
night in which the five execu-
tive officers would have to
“explain why they should be
allowed to remain.”

Ms Harding stated that she
would speak openly on the
matter today, bringing docu-
mentation to support her case.

Questions raised after plane crash in Brazil

@ BRAZIL
Sao Paulo

BRAZIL’S deadliest jetliner
crash was an accident foretold.
For months, air safety concerns
have been aired in congression-
al hearings, and pilots and traf-
fic controllers have worried for
years about the short, slippery
runways at Brazil’s busiest air-
port, according to Associated
Press.

Landing on the 6,362-foot-
long runway at Sao Paulo’s
Congonhas airport is so chal-
lenging that pilots liken it to an
aircraft carrier — if they don’t
touch down precisely within the
tarmac’s first 1,000 feet, they’re
warned to pull up and circle
around again. The ungrooved
runway becomes even more
treacherous in the rain when it
turns into a slick landing sur-
face.

The runway appears to have
been a key factor in Tuesday’s
crash, and critics condemned
President Luis Inacio da Silva’s
government Wednesday for fail-
ing to invest in safety measures
adopted by other urban air-
ports.

International air safety

(AP Photo/Victor Caivano)

experts have long warned of the
danger of just such an accident
on the short runway at Sao
Paulo’s airport, especially in
heavy rain. Only the day before,
two other planes skidded off the
runway’s end.

But Bologna said it was too
early to say what went wrong.

“We have to wait for the
results of the investigations to
know the cause,” he said. “It
would be premature to make
any assumptions about the run-
way.”

Like many congested urban
airports, Sao Paulo’s domestic
air travel hub is surrounded by
development and has no room

- for thé runway extensions rec-
- ommended by air safety groups.

New York’s LaGuardia Air-
port, by contrast, has a 7,003-
foot runway.

But the International Feder-
ation of Air Line Pilots’ Asso-
ciations said Wednesday the
accident shows the need for the

next best thing _ braking sys-
tems of soft cement beyond the
runway, where wheels can sink
in and slow the jets to a safe
stop.

The soft cement is strong
enough to support airport emer-
gency vehicles, but disintegrates
into fragments when a heavy
aircraft runs over it, thus acting
as a brake.

Known as an arrestor bed,
the system has prevented sev-
eral planes from ending up in
the bay next to New York’s
John F. Kennedy International
Arrport, said Gideon Ewers, the
pilot group’s spokesman.

Critics condemned Silva’s
government for its failure to fix
Brazil’s air traffic problems in
the months since 154 people
were killed in the September
collision of a Gol Airlines Boe-

ing 737 with a small jet over the |

Amazon rainforest.

“Tt’s been 10 months since the
last worst air accident in Brazil-
ian history and now we’ve had
an accident worse than that,”
said David Fleischer, a politi-
cal scientist at the University of
Brasilia. “If you look at what’s
happened since September, the
answer is nothing.”

Silva has-been unable to
wrest control of the civil avia-
tion system from the military,
which oversees Brazil’s air traf-
fic controllers and has filled top
positions at the national avia-
tion agency with political
appointees with little or no
experience. |

The accident is certain to

have political ramifications, if. *

ed Rep. Julio Redecker, 51, a

ian Social Democracy Party and

vocal critic of Silva’s handling of ‘

Port authority and
Pegasus lawyer

@ By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter

FREEPORT - As reports
continue to circulate regard-
ing the closure of Pegasus
the company’s
lawyer and Grand Bahama
Port Authority officials say
they are “unaware” of the sta-
tus of the operation.

According to reports, the
staff has been significantly
reduced, and office furniture
and equipment has been
removed from the warehouse
building on Settler’s Way.

Company CEO Jasper
Knabb, who opened the wire-
less manufacturing plant in
January, is not on island and
could not be reached for com-
ment.

Attorney Pleasant Bridge-
water said that she is not
aware of the status of the busi-

ness in Freeport.

“I am not involved in the
business’s day-to-day opera-
tion, and my involvement with
the company is restricted just
to my legal role. I have no idea
about Mr Knabb’s where-
abouts,” she said.

Mr Knabb had initially

indicated that Pegasus Wire- .

less Corporation is a public
traded company, with manu-
facturing plants in China and
Taiwan. The company report-
edly manufactured wireless
products.

The Grand Bahama Port
Authority granted the compa-

ny a business licence some-

time during last quarter of
2006.

“We don’t know any thing
about it closing down, or what
is going on down ai the ware-
house,” said a reliable source
at the Port Authority.

GRANDMASTER Carl Cul-
mer, head of the Prince Hall
Grand Lodge of the Free and
Accepted Masons, says that his
organisation plans to play a
larger role in the socio-eco-
nomic development of the
Bahamas.

Mr Culmer was recently
elected as grand master of the
lodge. He previously served as
district deputy grandmaster for
District I (New Providence).

The new grand master said
he plans to take some of the
programmes established by his
predecessors “one step further”
and will allow “the masonic
body to play an improved role
in society”.

He said that one of his pri-
orities as grand master will be to
ensure that the body and its

subordinate lodges play a larger

role in working with the coun-
try’s youth — particularly the
young men — at a time when
crime and immorality appear to
be on the rise.

Mr Culmer said it is his belief
that the masonic teachings of
spirituality, morality, equality
and brotherly love can have an
impact on the nation’s young
men and women.

He said it is time that
Bahamian men of good moral
fibre took the lead in helping
to bring about the turnaround
needed, especially among the
youth and that as masons, the
Prince Hall Affiliated family is
prepared to stand in the gap
and “speak up” atid to make a
difference “whenever neces-

sary”.

“Masons and good men
throughout this country have to
stand up and show the nation
that there are still a lot of men

of good character in this country’

who would like to see this coun-
try move from where it is espe-
cially in terms of the social ills
that are impacting our country,”
Mr Culmer said.

He said the Prince Hall Asso-
ciation fraternity is filled with
both veteran and young masons
who are positive role models
and who, because they “come
from all facets of society”, have

capability, understanding and
professional expertise to assist
in alleviating a number of the
negative issues impacting soci-
ety.
“T don’t see our youth — par-

ticularly our young men — as’
being lost. I see them as being’:
misguided and in need of direc-

tion,” Mr Culmer said. “That’s

why I have established a com-

mittee responsible for working

with the country’s youth and

whose focus is to address some

of these very same problems.

“This committee is comprised _

of young, energetic examples in
the community and some of our
veteran masons who will work
hand-in-hand with the various
organisations in an attempt to
help stem the tide of crime and
immorality that is facing our
society and our youth.

Mr Culmer said the plan will
be implemented throughout the
10 districts that comprise the
Prince Hall Affiliated family,
including the Family Islands, to
ensure. “the universality of our
projects and that all Bahamiaris

- will be able to benefit. from

whatever programmes that are
already in place or will be put in

He said the fraternity. will

untary blood donations, cancer
awareness and healthy living in
addition to the continuation of
many of its social outreach pro-

grammes that have positively |

impacted a number of children’s
homes, in addition to homes for
the elderly.

“We are a group that does
not brag about the things that
we do; we just go out there and
do it because we believe that if
there is a need in our society
that we can assist with, we
should just go out there and do.
it without any fanfare or media
attention,” Mr Culmer said.

“And while that approach
may not have generated the
kind of publicity other organi-
sations receive, it is our belief
that filling the void and énsuring
that society benefits from our
functions, is the most important
contribution we can make to

helping make the Bahamas,a;>

Abbas hacks early
Palestinian elections,
deepening hostilities
with Hamas

m@ RAMALLAH,
West Bank

PALESTINIAN Presi-
dent Mahmoud Abbas on
Wednesday endorsed the
idea of early elections,
deepening animosities
with Hamas following the
Islamic militant group’s
violent takeover of the
Gaza Strip, according to
Associated Press.

Abbas did not say when
he might hold new elec-
tions or how he would
organize a vote in Hamas-
ruled Gaza. Abbas has
come under criticism for
taking tough measures
against Hamas in the
West Bank, and talk of
holding a new vote might
be a way of silencing his
critics.

Abbas made the
announcement ahead of a
gathering later in the day
of a top decision-making
body of the Palestine Lib-
eration Organization, the °
PLO’s Central Council.
The PLO is an umbrella
group of Palestinian © |
groups, but Hamas is not *
represented.

The council, dominated
by Abbas’ Fatah move=")-
ment, was expected to call :
for early elections asia hs
way toward ending 'its. bit-
ter power strugels with ‘
Hamas.

“This issue will be dis-
cussed in the council and
when there is a decision
for early elections, it is
my responsibility to issue
the decree for that;” :
Abbas said.

Abbas spoke at a joint
news conference with the
European Union’s foreign
policy chief, Javier
Solana, who voiced his
support for the Palestin-
ian leader.

“Some initiatives are
going to be taken in the
coming days that may
lead to the dream of all of

us, especially if the Pales- | .

tinians. start a political
process,” Solana said.

NELSON Mandela celebrated
his 89th birthday Wednesday with
a star-studded soccer match and
the launch of a humanitarian cam-
paign, joined by former U.S. Pres-
ident Jimmy Carter, former U.N.
Secretary-General Kofi Annan
and other elders of the global vil-
lage, according to Associated
Press.

The elders event kicked off
with about 250 people taking to
their feet to sing "Happy Birth-
day" as Mandela beamed with
delight before being helped to the
stage by his wife and Carter.

“How God must love South
Africa to have given us such a
priceless. gift," Desmond Tutu,
South Africa's former Anglican
archbishop and chairman of the
elders group, told Mandela. "You
bowled us all over by your gra-
ciousness, magnanimity and gen-
erosity of spirit."

Mandela was imprisoned for
nearly three decades for his fight
against apartheid. Released in
1990, he led negotiations to end
decades of white rule. In 1994, in
South Africa's first fully democ-
ratic elections, he was elected
president. .

He left office in 1999 but has
continued to work to reduce
poverty; illiteracy and AIDS in
Africa. ° ;

The Elders stems from an idea
of British entrepreneur Richard
Branson, who shares a birthday
with Mandela, and musician Peter
Gabriel, who were present at
Wednesday's launch.

The Elders, who include sever-

..al Nobel peace laureates — among

them Mandela — are dedicated to
finding new ways to foster peace
and resolve global crises, and to
supporting the next generation of
leaders.

The Elders are Annan; Ela
Bhatt, a women's rights cam-
paigner from India; former Nor-
wegian Prime Minister Gro
Harlem Brundtland; Carter; Li
Zhaoxing, a former Chinese
envoy to the U.N. who started his
diplomatic career in Africa; Man-

time campaigner for children's

Britain says main suspect in Litvinenko
poisoning death must be tried in UK

mj LONDON

BRITAIN said Wednesday
it would not accept a trial in a
third country of a former KGB
agent accused of using radioac-
tive poison to kill a Kremlin
critic, according to Associated
Press.

Prime Minister Gordon
Brown’s office earlier appeared
to have opened the way to a
possible compromise deal in
another country or- territory,
but later confirmed it would
only consider a trial in Britain.

“We want the trial to be ina
British court, on British soil,”
his spokesman Michael Ellam
said.

The spokesman earlier said
only that the trial should take
place in a British court — rais-
ing the prospect of a hearing
’ in a third country as in the case
of a Libyan suspect convicted

for the 1988 airliner bombing :

over Lockerbie, Scotland.

That trial was held by a Scot-
tish court specially convened
in the Netherlands after Libya
accepted the proposal of a trial
in a neutral country.

Brown’s Downing Street
office said any confusion was
unintentional and stressed it



“We want the trial to be in a
British court, on British soil.”



Michael Ellam, spokesman for
British Prime Minister Gordon Brown

was seeking a trial in Britain.

Britain this week ordered
four Russian diplomats to leave
the country because of Russia’s
refusal to extradite Andrei
Lugovoi, who was named by
British prosecutors as the chief
suspect in the killing of Alexan-
der Litvinenko, a Kremlin crit-
ic and former KGB agent poi-
soned with a radioactive iso-
tope in London in November.

Russia has. threatened
unspecified measures in
response, leading to concerns
that both sides are taking
extreme positions that could
make resolution of the dispute
difficult.

Europe Minister Jim Mur-
phy told the Foreign’ Affairs
select committee on ‘Wednes-
day that Britain had made a
targeted and, measured
response to Russia.

already outlined, he told law-
makers.

Murphy also said Brown’s
government would not accept a
trial of Lugovoi outside Britain.

Murphy told the panel that
London and Moscow were con-
tinuing to cooperate in many
fields. “It’s our intention to
emphasize that we see Russia
as a strong ally,” he said.

Boris Berezovsky, a London-
based Russian tycoon sought
by Russia for trial on embez-
zlement and money-launder-
ing charges, said Tuesday he
would agree to a trial in a third
country, though it was not clear
whether he would accept a
Russian court convened else-
where.

Britain’s refusal to extradite
Berezovsky, who was granted
British citizenship after fleeing
Russia, has long angered the

Kremlin.

_London’s Foreign Office said
in a document Wednesday that

- relations with Moscow have

been “overshadowed by ten-
sions” over asylum granted to
Russian dissidents.

Moscow has not “fully

accepted that these questions

are matters of law, not of poli-
tics or diplomacy,” said the doc-
ument, prepared by officials as
part of a parliamentary inquiry
into Russian-British relations.

Berezovsky, a one-time
Kremlin insider who has fall-
en out with Russian President
Vladimir Putin, said Wednes-

day that he fled Britain briefly .

last month because British
intelligence services told him
his life was in danger. ,

“TI was informed by Scotland
Yard that there was a plot to
kill me, and they recommended
to me to leave the country,”
Berezovsky told The Associat-
ed Press. He said he left Britain

for about a week and returned —

when Scotland Yard told him
the plot had been foiled.

Berezovsky was granted
political asylum in Britain in
2003. His visibility has
increased since Litvinenko’s
murder.

Scotland Yard declined to

comment on Berezovsky’s
claim and on newspaper
reports saying a suspect seized
at a London hotel allegedly
intended to lure Berezovsky
there in order to shoot him.

A British security official also
declined to confirm or deny the
claim, but stressed that the MIS
domestic intelligence agency
has no powers to arrest sus-
pects.

“Berezovsky is a very high-
profile critic of the Putin

regime, and history does show
that it would appear that the
Russians are prepared to take
action against their critics
abroad,” said the official, who
demanded anonymity to
discuss sensitive intelligence
work.

The official could not say
whether British intelligence ser-
vices believe Russia has tried
to attack dissidents in London
since Litvinenko’s murder. But
the official confirmed that
about 30 Russian spies are
believed to be based in Lon-
don to monitor exiles in the
city.

Russian Ambassador Yury
Fedotov told BBC radio that
Berezovsky’s claim about a plot
to assassinate him was “quite
strange information, and I have

nothing that could confirm it.”
He alleged that Berezovsky
is linked “to many criminal
international schemes of mon-
ey laundering, corruption and
organized crime.”
Berezovsky said he first
learned of the plot through
contacts within Russia’s Fed-
eral Security Service.
“They told me that someone
I knew would come and kill me
openly and present it as a busi-
ness matter. He would say
there was a disagreement over
the business,” he said.
Litvinenko died Nov. 23 after
ingesting radioactive poloni-
um-210. In a deathbed state-
ment, he accused Putin of being
behind the poisoning. Litvi-
nenko said he fell ill after meet-
ing Lugovoi and his business

partner, Dmitry Kovtun, at
London’s Millennium Hotel on
Nov. 1.

A waiter who was working
at the hotel told a British news-
paper on Sunday that he
believed a poison had
been sprayed into a pot of
green tea.

Lugovoi, also a former KGB
officer, gave a television inter-
view Tuesday in which he said
Britain had provoked the diplo-
matic conflict.

“The British officials have
backed themselves into a cor-
ner by proposing to extradite
me, although it was obviously
prohibited by the (Russian)
Constitution,” he said on Rus-
sia Today, an English-language
satellite channel under Kremlin
control.

§ Korea: N Korea agrees to disclose and

@ BEWING

NORTH Korea followed up
the shutdown of its sole oper-
ating reactor with a pledge
Wednesday to disclose all its
nuclear weapons programs
and disable them by the end
of the year, South Korea’s
nuclear envoy said, according
to Associated Press.

The North’s chief nuclear

a negotiator, Vice Foreign Min-

ister Kim Kye Gwan, made
the promise during the open-
ing session of six-nation talks

in Beijing, Chun Yung-woo

said.

“North Korea expressed its
intention to declare and dis-
able (its nuclear facilities)

within the shortest possible

period, even within five or six
months, or by the end of the
year,” Chun said.

In separate talks with South
Korea on Wednesday, Kim
said his country was willing to
declare its nuclear programs
“without omitting a single
one,” Chun said.

That implied North Korea
will also mention a uranium
enrichment program that it
has never publicly acknowl-

- . edged. The U.S. accused

Pyongyang in 2002 of embark-
ing on such a program in vio-
lation of an earlier disarma-
ment deal — touching off a
nuclear crisis.

The arms talks — which
include Japan, Russia and the
U.S. — began Wednesday
with an infusion of optimism
after North Korea shut down
its reactor Saturday.

The atmosphere was “as

...' bright as Beijing’s skies and
. was more serious and busi-

nesslike than any other time,”
Chun said Wednesday after
the meeting of all six coun-
tries at a Chinese guesthouse
in a city bathed in sunshine.

The main U.S. envoy
declined to give specifics on
the discussions, but said the
Chinese hosts were expected
to issue a statement at the end
of the meetings Thursday lay-
ing out a target date for the
North’s declaration and dis-
ablement of its nuclear pro-
grams.

“There was a very good and
positive discussion on all of
the issues,” Assistant Secre-
tary of State Christopher Hill
told reporters.

Japan also said it was
impressed by North Korea’s
positive attitude.

“I had the impression that
North Korea is prepared to
implement the initial stage
steps,” Tokyo’s envoy
Kenichiro Sasae said, refer-
ring to the list and disable-
ment.

Chun said the North’s dec- :

laration should also include
bombs the North has built.
“If North Korea has some-
thing, whether it be a nuclear
weapon or a nuclear detona-
tion device, it should declare
all of them,” he said.
Earlier Wednesday, the
U.N. nuclear watchdog con-
firmed that North Korea shut-
tered all remaining facilities

_ at its main nuclear complex in

addition to its only working
reactor.

“We have verified all the

five nuclear facilities have
been shut down,” Mohamed
ElBaradei, chief of the Inter-
national Atomic Energy
Agency, told reporters during
a visit to Kuala Lumpur,
Malaysia.

Some of the facilities have
also been sealed by U.N.
inspectors, ElBaradei said.

ElBaradei announced ear-
lier in the week that inspec-

tors had verified the shutdown .

of North Korea’s only work-
ing nuclear reactor at Yong-
byon, 60 miles north of
Pyongyang.

His announcement Wednes-
day confirmed four additional
facilities were also shuttered,
including two long-dormant
construction sites for larger
reactors, and facilities for
making reactor fuel and repro-
cessing it to harvest plutoni-
um for bombs.

ElBaradei said having the
facilities listed and dismantled
by year-end could only hap-
pen if there was progress in
the six-nation talks and the
North’ remains cooperative
with inspectors, who may be

required to travel across the

secretive nation to other sites.

“What is really important is
full transparency,” ElBaradei
said. “The more transparen-
cy we get, the quicker we will
be: able to verify that every-
thing in (North Korea) has
been declared to us.”

North Korea has begun
receiving 50,000 tons of oil
from South Korea as a reward
for the reactor shutdown, and
is to eventually receive the
equivalent of a total 1 million
tons for disabling its nuclear
facilities.

But Pyongyang has also
demanded the U.S. and Japan
end their “hostile” policies
against the regime, such as

’ other economic sanctions and

being named on a USS. list of
terrorism-sponsoring states.
The countries involved in

the arms talks last met in-

March, although the main
U.S. envoy Hill made a sur-
prise trip to Pyongyang in
June — his first ever — to
urge the North to comply with
its pledges.

Man made hunk of
metal crashes
through NJ roof,
officials perplexed

m@ BAYONNE, N.J.

A HUNK of metal that
crashed through the roof ofa
home has NASA, Federal
Aviation Administration and
New Jersey Transit officials
scratching their heads,
according to Associated
Press.

The man who lives in the
house was watching televi-
sion Tuesday when he heard
a crash and saw a cloud of
dust. In the next room, he

found a hunk of gray metal,

3 1/2 inches by 5 inches, with
two hexagonal holes in it.

Experts say it’s manmade,
but nobody can say where it
might have come from.

New Jersey Transit has
railroad tracks about 100
feet from the house, but
spokesman Dan Stessel said
the object isn’t something
that would have flown off a
train.

FAA officials said it was-
n’t a part that would have
fallen from a plane headed
into or out of nearby Newark
Liberty International Air-
port.

“Tt doesn’t look very
‘space-y,”’ said Henry Kline,
a spokesman for NASA’s Jet
Propulsion Laboratory in
Pasadena, Calif. “It’s obvi-
ously made for something ...
But we wouldn’t know what
to do with it.”

U.S. Air Force Major
Costas Leonidou at the Pen-
tagon said he couldn’t identi-
fy the fallen object, either.
“It could be Air Force,
Navy, Marines, commercial.
It could be anything,” he
said.

Authorities in Bayonne, as
well as the home’s residents,
just want to get it identified.

“It belongs to somebody,”
Police Director Mark Smith
said.

17 soldiers and eight suspected
militants killed in Pakistan clashes

@ ISLAMABAD, Pakistan

MILITANTS bombed and
strafed an army convoy with
gunfire Wednesday, killing 17
troops and continuing a wave
of violence that has stirred
doubts about Pakistan's stabili-
ty, according to Associated Press.

At least eight suspected mili-
tants also died in clashes with
security forces in North Waziris-
tan, a Taliban and al-Qaida
stronghold on the Afghan bor-
der where a disputed peace deal
has collapsed and troops have
moved in.

President Gen. Pervez
Musharraf urged moderate Pak-
istanis, many of whom are press-
ing him to resign and restore
civilian rule, to help him take
on the extremists.

However, the military-led

government also challenged -:

U.S. claims that al-Qaida. is
regrouping near the Afghan
border as lacking substance.

Suicide attacks, bombings and
shootings blamed on Islamic
extremists and a bloody army
siege of radicals in Islamabad's
Red Mosque have killed more
than 240 people so far this
month.

Adding" to the tension, a sui-
cide bomber on Tuesday killed
16 people at a rally for Pak-
istan's suspended chief justice,
whose legal battle with Mushar-

raf has galvanized opposition to .

military rule. A verdict in the
case is expected as early as Fri-
day.

Critics accuse Musharraf of
leading the country toward civ-
il war and using the crisis to
shore up U.S. support for his
eight-year-old military regime.
There is growing concern that
year-end elections will be post-
poned.

However, Musharraf insisted

Wednesday the ballot would go

ahead and dismissed specula-
tion he would declare a state of
emergency.

He claimed that al-Qaida was
on the run.

"Al-Qaida has weakened

because of the actions taken by -

Pakistani forces," Musharraf

‘ THE TRIBUNE



@ A PAKISTAN para-military soldier stands guard witha road sign reads "Avenue of Democra-
cy, " in Islamabad, Pakistan, Wedneday, July 18, 2007. Authorities beefed up security in capital after
Tuesday’ s suicide bombing which killed 16 people before a rally in support of Pakistan's chief justice
’ who is suspended by Pakistan's military ruler Gen. Pervez Musharraf.

was quoted by spokesman
Rashid Quereshi as telling a
group of local newspaper edi-
tors.

"We are in direct confronta-
tion with the extremist forces —
moderates versus extremists,"
said Musharraf, according to the
state-run news agency Associ-
ated Press of Pakistan.

The army said militants
attacked one of its convoys
about 40 kilometers (25 miles)
west of North Waziristan's main
town of Miran Shah with a
remote-control bomb and then
opened fire on the surviving sol-
diers.

Seventeen soldiers were killed
and more than a dozen injured
in the ambush, army spokesman
Maj. Gen. Waheed Arshad said.

The. army said several "mis-
creants" were killed in retalia-
tory fire by the surviving troops,
while another five militants were

killed in a clash in the town of

Mir Ali. -

Two local security officials
said security forces also shot and
killed men in a car after they

refused to stop near Miran
Shah. Weapons were found in
the vehicle, according to the offi-
cials, who said they were not
allowed to speak on the record.

Earlier, an explosion hit
another convoy near Miran
Shah, wounding one soldier and
up to six civilians, Arshad said.

The bloodshed has clouded
government efforts to resurrect
a peace pact that militants dis-
avowed over the weekend.

Musharraf insists the accord —
under which the military scaled
back its operations in the U.S.-
led war on terror in return for
pledges from tribal leaders to
contain militancy — offers the
best long-term hope of pacifying
the region.

However, U.S. officials have
expressed concern that it gives
Islamic extremists breathing
space that they have used to
strengthen their operations in

Pakistan, Afghanistan and.

beyond.

In an intelligence report
unveiled in Washington on
Tuesday, analysts said the pact

had given al-Qaida new oppor-
tunities to set up compounds for
terror training, improve its inter-
national communications with
associates and bolster its opera-
tions.

Al-Qaida was using its bur-
geoning strength in Pakistan, as
well as Iraq, to plot terror strikes
on American soil, according to
the latest U.S. National Intelli-

_ gence Estimate.

Pakistan's Foreign Ministry
rejected that. assessment

Wednesday as unsubstantiated.

"We would firmly act to elim-
inate any al-Qaida hide-out on
the basis of specific intelligence
or information," a ey
statement said.

"It does not help simply to
make assertions about the pres-
ence or regeneration of al-Qaida
in bordering areas of Pakistan.
What is needed is concrete and
actionable information and
intelligence sharing," it said.

It also reiterated that no for-
eign security forces would be
allowed to pursue militants in
Pakistan territory. ‘

National fide knew no
bounds this year for
employees of Citi in
celebration of Independence
Day for The Bahamas.







The concept, “All Tings
Bahamian”, began as a
decorating contest among
business units of the local

- franchise here in Nassau but
_ quickly took on a life of its
own. Business teams
corralled their creative
energy and turned the
Thompson Boulevard offices
_ of Citi into a sea of turquoise,
yellow and black. Displays
included a technology unit |
turned’ into a scaled down >
version of Bain Town,
cubicles turned into siayen
houses. complete with |

; gingham curtains, and a
myriad of historic items. Staff
performed poe aco rush
out. :



































Even a live crab and chicken
in cages found their way into
displays. On hand to judge
the displays were four well-
known Bahamian cultural
_ personalities and activists,
Ms Fernern Hanna, William
R. Deveaux, Val Maura and











ona scrubbing board,
clothes line strewn wit
bloomers, gospel singing,
rake ‘n’ scrape, jack stone
and ring play. The room was

rich with the scent of old- ©
fashioned pea soup, stew
fish, potato bread, flour cal
and a variety of other
Bahamian treats.














“At Citi, we are known for our
globality and presence in
more than 100 countries, ©
however we know that our ~
commitment to the local
communities within which we
operate is what makes us
successful. We value our
presence in The Bahamas
and this type of event is just
one way in which we can give
back and honour the
country”, said Margaret A.
Butler, Citi Country Officer.
She went on to say that, “It
_| was wonderful to see the
1 teamwork and camaraderie

1 | among our employees. We

had a really fun time with this!

US military: Top
al-Qaida in Iraq

figure seized,
said bin Laden
inner circle

Wields control

B BAGHDAD

THE highest-ranking
Iraqi leader of al-Qaida in
Iraq has been arrested
and told interrogators
that Osama bin Laden’s
inner circle wields consid-
erable influence over the
Iraqi group, the U.S. com-
mand said Wednesday,
according to Associated
Press.

Khaled Abdul-Fattah
Dawoud Mahmoud al-
Mashhadani, who was
captured in Mosul on July
4, carried messages from
_bin Laden, and his deputy
Ayman al-Zawahri, to the
Egyptian-born head of al-
Qaida in Iraq, Abu Ayub
al-Masri, said Brig. Gen.
Kevin Bergner, a military
spokesman.

“Communication
between the senior al-
Qaida leadership and al-
Masri frequently went
through al-Mashhadani,”
Bergner said. “There is a
clear connection between
al-Qaida in Iraq and al-
Qaida senior leadership
outside Iraq.”

The relationship
between the two groups
has been the subject of
debate, with some private
analysts believing the for-
eign-based leadership
plays a minor role in day-
to-day operations.

Some have suggested
that linking al-Qaida in
Iraq to bin Laden is sim-
ply an attempt to justify
the Iraq war as an exten-
sion of the global conflict
that began with the Sept.
11, 2001, attacks.

But the U.S, military
has insisted that there are
links between the local al-
Qaida group and the bin
Laden clique and has
released captured letters
from time to time, sug-
gesting the foreign-based
leaders provide at least
broad direction.

Bergner said al-Mash-

hadani had told interroga- —

tors that al-Qaida leaders
outside the country “con-
tinue to provide direc-
tions, they continue to
provide a focus for opera-
tions, they continue to
flow foreign fighters into
Iraq.”

Pointing to the foreign
influence in al-Qaida
undermines support for
the organization among
nationalistically minded
Iraqis, including some in
insurgent groups that
have broken with al-Qai-
da.

In the latest violence, a
series of roadside bombs
exploded early Wednes-
day in separate areas of
east Baghdad, killing 11
people and wounding
more than a dozen, police
said. The U.S. military
reported three more
American soldiers had
died in action in the Iraqi
capital.

Bergner said that al-
Mashhadani and al-Masri
had used an Iraqi actor to
put a local stamp on their
foreign-run organization,
by co-founding “a virtual
organization in cyber-
space called the Islamic
State of Iraq in 2006.”

In Web postings, the
Islamic State of Iraq has
identified its leader as
Abu Omar al-Baghdadi, a
name indicating Iraqi ori-
gin, with the Egyptian al-
Masri as minister of war.
There are no known pho-
tos of al-Baghdadi.

wa nuclear power plant in Kashiwazaki, northeastern Japan, Wednesday, July 18, 2007. A top power company official defended safety standards at an earthquake-ravaged

nuclear plant Wednesday, even as the company said a radioactive leak was bigger than first reported and came under international pressure for details.

Company says radioactive leak at Japan nuclear
plant was bigger than previously announced =<

BB KASHIWAZAKI, Japan

THE operator of an earth-
quake-ravaged nuclear plant
said Wednesday.a radioactive
leak from the plant was 50
percent bigger than first
reported two days ago. The
mayor ordered the facility
closed until its safety could be
confirmed, according to Asso-
ciated Press.

Tokyo Electric Power Co.
also said about 400 barrels
containing low-level radioac-
tive waste at the Kashiwazaki-
Kariwa plant were knocked
over, and the lids had come
off 40 of them, as a result of
Monday’s deadly 6.8-magni-
tude quake. The announce-

: . ment revised the company’s

earlier estimate of 100 tipped
barrels.

“We made a mistake in cal-
culating the amount that
leaked into the ocean. We
apologize and make correc-
tion,” Tokyo Electric said in a
statement. Spokesman Jun
Oshima said the amount of
radioactive water that leaked
into the Sea of Japan was still
“one-billionth of Japan’s legal
limit.”

Tokyo Electric spokesman
Tsutomu Uehara said no radi-
ation has been detected out-
side the nuclear plant.

Japanese automakers,
meanwhile, called production
halts Wednesday at factories
because of quake damage at a
major parts supplier. Produc-
tion was scaled back at Toyota
Motor Corp., Nissan Motor
Co. Mitsubishi Motors Corp.
and Fuji Heavy Industries.

Mayor orders closure until



safety can be confirmed

Toyota, Japan’s No. 1
automaker, will stop produc-
tion lines at a dozen factories
centered in central Aichi pre-
fecture Thursday afternoon
and Friday. The shutdown was
due to the temporary closure
of Riken Corp.’s plant at
Kashiwazaki, near the epicen-
ter of Monday’s quake.

’ Toyota will assess the situa-
tion at Riken, supplier of key
transmission and engine parts,
before deciding whether to
resume production Monday,
he said.

Charred

Repair workers on Wednes-
day climbed over the Kashi-
wazaki-Kariwa’s three-story
transformer building, which
was charred from top to bot-
tom in a fire Monday.

A tour given to Japan’s
Communist Party chief,
Kazuo Shii, and reporters
revealed widespread damage
across the sprawling com-
pound, including large cracks
in roads, toppled concrete
fences and buckled sidewalks.

“This is unforgivable,” Shii

told TEPCO Deputy Super- .

intendent Masakazu Minami-
date. “You say there’s no leak
before you really know. ... The
delay in information was espe-

cially inexcusable.”

TEPCO President Tsune-
hisa Katsumata toured the site
earlier, declaring it “a mess”
and apologizing for “all the
worry and trouble we have
caused.”

“We will conduct an inves-
tigation from the ground up.
But I think fundamentally we
have confirmed that our safe-

ty measures worked,” he said.

Hiroshi Aida, mayor of
Kashiwazaki, a city near the
epicenter that is home to the

. plant and 93,500 people,

ordered operations at the
plant halted Wednesday for
“safety reasons.”

The malfunctions and a
delay in reporting them fueled
concerns about the safety of
Japan’s 55 nuclear reactors,
which have suffered. a string
of accidents and cover-ups.
Nuclear power plants around
Japan were ordered to con-
duct inspections.

Adding to the urgency of
any investigation was new
data from quake aftershocks
that suggested a fault line may
run underneath the mammoth
power plant.

The Kashiwazaki-Kariwa
plant, located 135 miles north-
west of Tokyo, has been
plagued with mishaps. In 2001,
a radioactive leak was found
in the turbine room of one

reactor. It is the world’s largest
nuclear plant in power output
capacity.

Signs of problems after the
quake Monday came first not
from the officials, but in a
plume of:smoke after the
quake triggered a small fire at
an electrical transformer.
Twelve hours later, the com-
pany announced the quake
also caused a leak of about
315 gallons of water contain-
ing radioactive material. _

Reactors .

Later Tuesday, it said 50
cases of “malfunctioning and
trouble”. had been found. Four
of the plant’s seven reactors
were running at the time of
the quake, and they were all
shut down automatically by a
safety mechanism.

Meanwhile, TEPCO

spokesman Hiroshi Itagaki

said that information accu-
mulated by studying after-
shocks shows that a fault line
stretches under the ocean near
the coast, which is not far from
the plant. He declined to say
how close to the plant the
fault might come.

Osamu Kamigaichi, an offi-
cial at Japan’s Meteorological
Agency, which monitors
earthquakes, said it was pos-

sible the fault line stretched
to underneath the plant
grounds.

Across the town, more than :
8,000 residents hunkered
down for their second night
in shelters. Late Wednesday,
police discovered a 76-year-
old man crushed to death
under a temple in Kashiwaza-
ki, bringing the quake’s fatal-
ities to 10.

For residents, thousands of
whom work at the plant, the
controversy over its safety
compounded already severe
problems, which included
heavy rains and the threat of
landslides, water and power
outages. .

“Whenever there is an
earthquake, the first thing we
worry about is the nuclear
plant. I worry about whether
there will be a fire or some-
thing,” said Kiyokazu Tsuna-
jima, a tailor who sat outside
with his family, afraid an after-
shock might collapse his dam-
aged house.

The area around Kashi-

: wazaki was hit by an earth-

quake three years ago that
killed 67 people, but the plant °
suffered no damage. -

The plant’s safety record
and its proximity to a fault line
prompted residents to file law-
suits claiming the government
had failed to conduct sufficient
safety reviews when it
approved construction of the
plant in the 1970s. But in 2005,
a Tokyo court threw out a
lawsuit filed by 33 residents,
saying there was no error in
the government safety
reviews.

TWO Bahamian companies
' have joined forces to expand
their mutually growing busi-

‘Builders Mall’ development at ©

188 Wulff Road, a site that for-
merly housed The Bahamian
Lumber Company.

Andrew Higgs, of M. R. Hig-

Mark Roberts, of Tile King &

companies.

M. R. Higgs, formerly located
on Dowdeswell Street, is poised

new location will also symbolise
the launch of the new and
improved M. R. Higgs Co busi-

The ‘Builders Mall’ concept
was born from the experience

and some adjoining and neigh-
bouring land parcels, he saw the

ocean, and upon the seabed it
had leased from the Govern-
ment for its cables.

‘Caribbean Crossings alleged
that when the break in its cable
system occurred, testing by its

technicians indicated the fibre -

split was between Hunters,
Grand Bahama, and Boca
Raton, Florida.

Further tests on July 31 by its

technicians confirmed this, and
that “the break was within the
territorial waters of the
Bahamas”. Tests conducted by
New World Networks, which is

. majority-owned by Cable

Bahamas’ largest and control-
ling shareholder, Columbus
Communications, also “con-
firmed the nature, extent and

Caribbean Crossings alleged

that it hired a contractor, IT

aged cable. The repair vessel,
CS Intrepid, was assigned and
mobilised on August 3, 2006,
leaving the Canadian port of
Halifax on August 6, 2006, and
arriving in Nassau on August

Upon receipt of the forego-
ing documents, the Bahamas
Maritime Authority will issue a
Carving and Marking Note,
which must be certified by
either a classification society
surveyor, a Bahamas Maritime
Authority nautical inspector,
a Bahamian customs or con-
sular officer, or a Bahamas
Maritime Authority registrar.

The Act allows permanent
registration, provisional regis-
tration and dual registration.
Provisional registration per-
mits a ship owner to register
his ship on a provisional basis



for up to six months while the
necessary surveys and other
formalities are being complet-
ed.

This registration also allows
a ship registered on a provi-
sional basis to have all the priv-
ileges and erititlements of a ful-
ly-registered Bahamian ship

Dual registration is primari-
ly used in instances where a
charterer, whose ship was orig-
inally registered in the
Bahamas, wishes to use a dif-
ferent flag for the same ship.

The mortgages of this ship
may still be recorded in the
Bahamian register during the
period of the charter. Howev-
er, the Baharnian registration
for the ship will be suspended
for any other activity. The
same procedure applies for
those ships that have been reg-
istered, originally, in a foreign-

jurisdiction and wish to use the -

Bahamian flag.
It is important to note that

ships holding a foreign tonnage
certificate and wishing to be
transferred to the Bahamas
flag do not need to be re-mea-
sured for tonnage. Similarly,
ship owners who wish to trans-
fer their ships to the Bahamas
flag and possess valid safety
certificates issued by one of
the Bahamas Maritime
Authority's classification-soci-
eties are not required to have
their ships re-surveyed for safe-
ty.

It should be mentioned that
all Bahamas-registered ships
must be inspected upon regis-
tration, and on an annual basis

_ after the initial inspection.

Fees

The initial registration fees
for Bahamian ships are rela-
tively higher than some ship
registers. However, lower
annual fees, which are compa-
rable to other jurisdictions nor-
mally, help to balance these

high registration fees. It is
believed that the purpose of
creating such a high fee struc-
ture is to attract more rep-
utable ship operators to the
jurisdiction.

Initial Registration Fee

Ships of 5,000 net tons or less

US$1.20 per ton (minimum
$2,400)

Ships of over 5,000 net tons

Smith: ‘No more

projects’ until
environment
laws enacted

@ By NEIL HARTNELL

Tribune Business Editor .

he Bahamas must
“urgently engage” a
National Land Use
Policy to guarantee
sustainable economic develop-
ment, a Bahamian attorney
argued yesterday, urging the
FNM government not to
approve any more investment
projects before enacting an
Environmental Protection Act.

Commenting on the. admis-
sion by Tommy Turnquest, min-
ister of national security and
immigration, that in hindsight
the FNM government should
not have approved the Bimini
Bay Resort & Casino project
because its size was not in pro-
portion to that of Bimini or its
ecosystem, Fred Smith said the
current administration should
enact environmental protection
legislation that had been draft-
ed under the first Ingraham
administration.

- “T call on the FNM govern-
ment not to be approving any
more new developments before
they pass an. Environmental
Protection Act,” Mr Smith said.

“If the FNM government
were serious about protecting
the environment, they would
enact an Environmental Pro-
tection Act immediately. I call
on them to do so.”

The Callenders & Co attor-
ney and partner said the
Bahamas also needed to devel-
op a National Land Use Policy
to act as a guide in developing
an environmentally sustainable
and sound development policy.

“Given the explosion in
unbridled development, espe-
cially development by foreign



@ TURNQUEST

investment companies for the
purpose of exploiting the
Bahamas for sale, almost exclu-
sively, to affluent non-citizens,
the issue of environmental man-
agement becomes more urgent,
pressing and critical,” Mr Smith
said.

He pointed out that the Envi-
ronmental Health Services Act
1987 provided little regulatory,
management or enforcement
powers, with no provisions for
Environmental Impact Assess-
ments (EIAs).

Describing the Bahamian
coastline as being just like the

“gold” discovered in the 19th |

century US mid-west, which
brought a rush of prospectors
to those areas, Mr Smith said
the shortage of beachfront land
in Florida - most of it now built-
up - had forced developers to

turn their attention to the |

Bahamas.

He added: “Like the Florida
Gold Coast, the entire Bahamas
is a gold coast, and it is being
mined for profit, for the most
part by and for others, not by
and for Bahamians.

‘“Bahamians today receive
very little consideration in
return for the Great Giveaway
that has gone on. Future gen-
erations of Bahamians will be
left with the scraps of our gold
mine, and we will be left with

- scarred mine pits after the

coastal zones have been degrad-
ed and the reefs destroyed.

“Not only that, very few
Bahamians will own any coast-
line or even have access to
beaches or water for recreation,
or even accessing water.”

. Mr Smith told The Tribune
that the ‘anchor projects’ policy,
which was taken-to new heights
by Perry Christie’s government,

-had “no long-term thinking

underpinning them”.

Pointing to Bimini Bay, he
pointed out that the develop-
ment’s 3,000 homeowners
would effectively outnumber
the island’s 2,500 Bahamian res-

_idents. He questioned what the

Government’s future planning
and immigration policies would
be, as while these homeowners
would enjoy the Bahamian
lifestyle, they would have-no
influence or role in “participat-
ing in the development of these
communities”.

“This is the same situation
relplicated in Exuma, Abaco,

Eleuthera and Mayaguana,” Mr ~

Smith said.

He added that the Save Gua-
na Cay Reef Association, which
he is representing in its battle
against Discovery Land Com-

pany’s Baker’s Bay Golf & —

Ocean Club project, was “very
pleased that the FNM is
acknowledging the misguided
anchor property policy of the
PLP..... the failure and perver-

-sity of these anchor projects.”

the CS Intrepid, and there
appeared to be a structure on
the barge.

“The structure was very sim-
ilar to what had been discov-
ered under the water near the
fibre break. In making inquiries,
[Caribbean Crossings] was
advised that it was BORCO’s
material that was being
dumped. One of the tug boats
was named Russell A Gisclaer,
being registration number
367074030.

“BORCO was contacted and
provided co-ordinates and times
of the dumps.”

Caribbean Crossings said IT
Marine Ltd completed repairs
on 17 August, 2006, and the CS
Intrepid returned to Halifax.

The Cable Bahamas sub-
sidiary alleged: “The defendant
[BORCO] knew that undersea
structures were located on the

sea bed, and therefore owed a
duty of care to those owners.

“The fibre break was caused
by the negligence of the defen-
dants, their servants or agents,
or by persons for whom the
defendants are vicariously
liable.”

The lawsuit could not have
come at a worse time for BOR-
CO or its parent, the Venezue-
lan state-owned firm PDVSA,
which is trying to sell its
Bahamian subsidiary.

The potential liability from
this case is likely to have been

disclosed to prospective buyers -

who have qualified for the sec-
ond round of bidding on BOR-
CO, involving access to a data
room on the company’s finan-
cials and detailed due diligence,
such as Site visits, inspections
and meetings with management.

The lawsuit is also likely to
raise environmental questions
about whether BORCO had the

relevant permits and approvals
to do the “dumping”, and the
impact such activities might
have on the sea and marine
environment, integral to the
Bahamian tourism industry.

Caribbean Crossings alleged
that BORCO failed to check
“the location of marine struc-
tures in the area” where it was
dumping; did not consult charts
that would have shown where
its fibre-optic cable was located;
and “failed to obtain permis-
sion or the requisite permissions
to conduct the dumping”.

Caribbean Crossings said it
had obtained a Crown licence .
from the Department of Lands
and Surveys on December 15,
2000, giving it permission to use
the sea bed between .the three-
mile limit and the shore for its
fibre-optic cable system.

Caribbean Crossings also
alleged that BORCO failed to
supervise the dumping or give
adequate warning to affected
parties.

As a result, it had suffered
damages of $996,160, some
$911,244 of that sum coming
from having to hire an IT
marine specialist to effect the
repairs.

In addition, Caribbean Cross-
ings alleged: “The plaintiff has
suffered a diminution in the use
of the property for which it has
a licence. The presence of the
structures now makes it more
likely that anchors from sea ves-
sels will hook in the structures,
causing damage to its cable.”

The company also claimed
that through dumping these
“structures”, BORCO had tres-
passed and caused a “nuisance”,
and through their presence on
the sea bed left Caribbean
Crossings in violation of its
licence with the Government.

Caribbean Crossings said it
was also seeking the removal of
the structures dumped by BOR-
CO from its property.

The case is still live before
the Supreme Court, and hear-
ings are continuing. BORCO

_ has responded to the allegations

made by Caribbean Crossings,

\ing into hiring,a company to '

Biminite Lloyd Edgecombe

told Tribune Business that the
recent admission by National
Security minister, Tommy
Turnquest, that the first FNM
government should not have
approved the Bimini Bay
resort; the receivership issues
surrounding the Four Seasons
at Emerald Bay resort on Exu-
ma; and the concerns raised by
the size of the Valentine’s
Reésort’s marina on Harbour
Island, were all indications the
Government needed to reeval-
uate its policy on Family Island
developments.

Urging that the integrity of
these islands was not compro-
mised, Mr Edgecombe said
condo hotels should not be
approved for Family Islands
because they were too big and
did not fit into island life.

Properties

“The only properties that
should be approved for small
Family Islands are the small
‘Mom and Pop’ operations,”
he said.

Mr Edgecombe said it was

Concerns

He noted that Bimini Bay

for Biminites, namely the
amount of Bahamians who

5.5 per cent
sales gain

@ By HARRY R WEBER
AP Business Writer

ATLANTA (AP) — Delta
Air Lines Inc., the nation’s
third-largest carrier, cited a 5.5
per cent gain in sales as it
reported Wednesday that it
swung to a profit in the second
quarter, which saw it emerge
from bankruptcy after shaving
billions of dollars in costs.

The Atlanta-based compa-
ny’s results beat Wall Street
expectations when one-time
items are excluded.

Also Wednesday, outgoing
Chief Executive Gerald Grin-
stein told investors and ana-
lysts during a conference call
that Delta’s board will likely
choose his successor by the end
of the summer, at which point
he will retire. He had initially
said he planned to leave soon
after Delta emerged from
Chapter 11, but later extended
that timeline. He said during
the call the board is taking a
deliberative approach to find-
ing his replacement “given the
‘magnitude of this decision.”

The top internal candidates

.for CEO are Chief Financial

Officer Ed Bastian and Chief
Operating Officer James
Whitehurst. No external can-
didates have been mentioned
publicly.

Delta shares rose five cents
to $21.24 in morning trading.

For the three months end-
ing June 30, Delta said it
recorded net income of $1.77
billion, or $4.49 a share, com-
pared to a loss of $2.21 billion
in the same period a year ear-

United States’ third-largest carrier
reports profit in second quarter

lier. The corresponding per-
share figure for the year-ago
loss was not provided in
Delta’s balance sheet.

Excluding reorganization
and related one-time items,
Delta said it had a profit of
$274 million, or 70 cents a
share, in the second quarter.
On‘a comparable basis, ana-
lysts surveyed by Thomson
Financial were expecting a
profit of 59 cents a share.

The reorganization and
related one-time items Delta
accounted for in the second
quarter of this year stemmed
from $1.5 billion of income pri-
marily due to the discharge of
claims and liabilities in con-
nection with its bankruptcy
proceedings and the adoption
of fresh-start reporting.

Revenue in the April-June
quarter rose to $5 billion, com-
pared to $4.74 billion recorded
in the same period a year ear-
lier.

- At the end of the quarter,
Delta had $3.7 billion in cash,
cash equivalents and short-
term investments, of which
$3.4 billion was unrestricted.
Delta also has an additional $1
billion in unrestricted liquidity

available under its undrawa ;

revolving credit facility...

million in cash gains*on fuel’

hedge contracts settled during
the quarter.

For the first six months of
the year, Delta said its net
income was $1.64 billion, com-
pared to a loss of $4.28 billion
for the same period a'year ear-
lier. Per-share figures were not
given. Six-month revenue rose
to $9.24 billion, compared to
revenue of $8.54 billion in the
same period a year earlier.

Grinstein said he was
pleased by the results.

“We are focused on the
future,” Grinstein said.

Delta entered Chapter 11 on
September 14, 2005. The com-
pany emerged on April 30.

In bankruptcy, Delta shed
billions in costs and restruc-
tured the carrier’s operations.
It also survived a hostile
takeover bid by Tempe, Ariz.-
based US Airways Group Inc.

After exiting bankruptcy,
Delta unveiled plans for a new.
paint job for its planes, featur-
ing the company’s three-
dimensional red logo flying
across a blue background on
the tail of aircraft.

Besides finding a new CEO,
Delta’s board also must decide
whether to sell or spin off
regional feeder carrier Comair.

The airline has not provided a

specific timetable for that deci-
sion.

Bush moves to ensure safety of
food, products shipped into US

High-level government panel to recommend steps to improve policing of imports

@ By TOM RAUM
Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) —
President Bush yesterday
established a high-level gov-
ernment panel to recommend
steps to guarantee the safety
of food and other products
shipped into the United States
and to improve US policing of
those imports. The White
House denied the effort was
aimed primarily at China.

The president was to meet
later Wednesday with his new
Import Safety Working Group.
The panel will be chaired by
Health and Human Services
Secretary Michael Leavitt.

“The administration is con-
cerned about the safety of

imported products that Amer- -

icans eat and use and we'll start
working on concrete steps to
address whatever problems
they may uncover,” said White
House spokesman Tony Snow.
The Food and Drug Admin-
istration’s ability to monitor
the nation’s food supply has
come under sharp criticism
from Congress and others
amid a string of high-profile
cases of foodborne illness,
including E. coli-tainted
spinach and salmonella-cont-
aminated peanut butter and
snack foods, as well as con-
cerns about drug-laced, farmed
fish imported from China.
“This is not a slap at China,”
said Snow when asked if he
thought China would be
offended by Bush’s action.
“This is in fact a normal piece
of business. We ‘get food
imports from 150 countries
around the world. It’s impor-
tant to monitor them all.”



@ PRESIDENT Bush gestures in the Roosevelt Room of the
White House in Washington yesterday during a meeting with the
Import Safety group on to discuss ways to protect all imports

coming into the United States.

Members of Congress have
criticized the FDA’s plan to
close half of its laboratories.

Bush created the new panel
with an executive order.

Nancy Nord, acting chair-
woman of the Consumer Prod-
uct Safety Commission, called
the formation of the panel “a
wonderful step.

“The administration is mov-

ing aggressively to address the

issue.”

Earlier, she told a Senate
hearing that the rapid growth
of imports is putting a strain
on her agency. The intense
pressures on regulatory agen-
cies was also emphasized by
officials from the FDA and the

National Highway Traffic Safe-

&

Security & General

ty Administration at the hear-
ing by the Senate Commerce,
Science and Transportation
Committee.

Bush took the action as Chi-
na announced that teams of
food safety officials from the
US and China would meet in
Beijing at the end of this
month to discuss the safety of
China’s seafood exports.

The FDA announced last
month that it would detain
Chinese catfish and several
other categories of fish as well
as shrimp and eel after repeat-
ed testing turned up contami-
nation with drugs that have not
been approved in the United

States for use in farmed.

The architects, Alexiou &

The facility will be able to off-

“Success of a development of
this size and magnitude can only
be realised with old-fashioned
hard work, and a concerted
effort by a group with the same
vision,” said Mark Roberts.

“Without a solid team there
would be no point in me step-

He added of the move to
extend British American
beyond its life and health insur-
ance heritage: “It’s in keeping
with the direction that the finan-
cial srevices industry is going
in, and we think we have a lot
more strengths than our com-
petitors.”

Mr Wilson, who is also an
attorney and partner in McK-
inney, Bancroft & Hughes,
revealed that British American
Financial was also actively con-
sidering branching out into the
capital markets business, via a
brokerage agency.

He said: “That is under dis-

* the moment.

“That'll be supported by the *
independent Board that we
have put together.”

Basil Sands has already been
named as British American
Financial’s chairman, and The
Tribune understands that oth-
er directors include Peter Carey;
former FNM MP Anthony
Rolle; and Vincent Vanderpool-
Wallace, the former Ministry of
Tourism director-general and
current Caribbean Tourism
Organisation (CTO) secretary-
general.

Mr Wilson said that BAB

_ Holdings and the new Board

wanted to “send a message”
about British American Finan-
cial’s independence and integri-
ty.
“It is our intention to set the
standard for corporate gover-
nance, and the cast of characters
wé have assembled for our

Board fully reflect that,” he
added.

Mr Wilson said British Amer-
ican Financial’s performance
since BAB Holdings acquired
the company was “trending in
line with Budget, which again
is very good, given that the first
quarter was in the middle of the
acquisition. We had some one-
off costs with respect to re-
branding, and if we didn’t have
those we would be much ahead
of budget”.

-Mr Wilson said the compa-
ny’s re-branding as British
American Financial and the
opening of its Abaco branch
office had been received “very
well”, and that once the acqui-
sition was completed “staff, cus-
tomers and clientele supported
and rallied around us”.

“The business has really now
started to do quite a bit better
than it did under the old own-
ership,” Mr Wilson said.

BAB Holdings, via a man-
agement buyout, purchased
British American Insurance
Company from British Ameri-
can International Corporation,
whose chairman was Mauritius-’
based Dawood Rawat. The deal
was part-financed by First-
Caribbean International Bank
(Bahamas).

At the time of the acquisi- |
tion, British American had
more than 200 employees and
agents spread between its three
offices on. New Providence,
Grand Bahama, Exuma and
Abaco.

The company had “more
than” 70,000 policies spread
across:its life and health insur-
ance, investments division and
all products, and 50,000 policy-
holders.

BAB Holdings was led by Mr
Wilson and Chester Cooper,
British American’s president

THE TRIBUNE OBITUARIES

CARD OF THANKS FOR THE LATE

KETURAH FRANCINE WRIGHT
A Bright New World
by: Helen Steiner Rice,

We feel so sad when those we love
Are touched by deaths dark hand,
But it would ease our sorrow
Lf we could but understand
That death is just a gateway
That all men must pass through
And on the other side of death,
In a world that's bright and new,
Our loved ones wait to welcome us

' To that land free from tears
Where joy becomes eternal
And time is not counted by years.

On behalf of the Wright and Bain families, we want to thank the following
persons for their continuous support during our time of grief. Though we are
saddened by Keturah's death, we rejoice knowing that she fought a
good tight and is now present with the Lord!!!

THE TRIBUNE OBITUARIES —

Josephine Virginia Bain
31 January 1929 — 15 July 1999

We can feel You, But we can't see you
hear you in our minds —
We dream o of you nightly,
It's so real we don't want to be awaken.
We see you in our children, your eyes, those cheeks. os
We remember when we said we'll never part cause we —
dreamed the same dreams.
Spiritual experiences that you and us only know of.
We feel as if we are crazy at times for we
one to be with you.
One day Dad & Mom we will be there with you,
Until then we will be waiting,
as you waited for us for nine months.
You loved us before you had us,
And we love you for having us,
with everything you went through for us to be.
Thank you for wanting to be our PARENTS...
_ Remember you said we'll s be together always and
Sorever......

We love n feel and we miss you More!
