We are responsible for crime problem

Dear Editor,

Much of our crime, including murder, is done by repeat offenders, quite a number of who are out on bail. Incidents of crime and murder would be fewer, and the rate of crime would be lower had we addressed earlier how to deal with this class of criminals.
Several years ago, the Privy Council in London made a judgement on how long someone can be held on remand before being allowed bail. After that, the clock started ticking on a potential surge in crime from known criminals who were now going to be free to walk the streets and commit new crimes.
There are things the FNM government could have done better on the crime­front. But for the PLP to continually and conveniently lay ...

Insurance business'fairly flat'

By INDERIA SAUNDERS
Guardian Business Reporter
inderia@nasguard.com
The increasing number of accidents, natural disasters or a levelling off in the recession appears not to have convinced the public to stick with their insurance payments.
Head of the Bahamas General Insurance Association confirmed yesterday that premium collections are still down. And the recent tax hikes in the 2010/2011 Budget did not help the matter any, said BGIAâ President Timothy Ingraham.
He said that most insurers in the industry would describe business as"fairly flat"as Bahamians continue to grapple with tough economic pressures.
"A few things are happening right now,"he toldGuardian Business." ...

MSC truck plan 'misunderstood'

By DENISE MAYCOCK

Tribune Freeport Reporter

dmaycock@tribunemedia.net

FREEPORT - The new trucking policy implemented on Monday by Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) may have been "misunderstood" by some truckers who feared the company was attempting to impose a monopoly.

Last week, several independent truckers and members of the opposition expressed concern over a notice sent by MSC to merchants, shipping agents and brokers in Freeport. PLP MPs Fred Mitchell and Alfred Sears claimed that the notice issued by MSC sought to control the movement of containers at the port, and increase delivery charges from $120 to $295.

They believed it was an attempt by the company to monopolise ...

FNM accuses PLP of seeking to 'score political brownie points'

The FNM has accused the PLP of seeking to "score political brownie points" by opposing government plans to allow 200 Chinese workers come to New Providence to help build a new highway.

Carl Bethel, FNM chairman, suggested that in opposing in parliament a resolution seeking approval to get almost $60 million in funding from China for the "airport gateway project" and the 200 Chinese workers that would come with it, the PLP is engaged in "political pandering, with a clear eye to the next general election."

"The PLP are not worried about the high level of debt or the Chinese loan, they are worried about one thing alone: putting themselves in best position to fight the nex ...
