Gas stations cut diesel supply

The Bahamas Petroleum Retailers Association (BPRA) yesterday placed a ban on the sale of diesel for several hours – a measure taken to demonstrate to the government how serious it is about agitating for a marginal profit increase.
The petroleum industry operates on fixed margins controlled by the government.
Diesel retailers initially planned not to sell diesel for a full day. However, most gas stations began to sell the fuel again at noon yesterday. This move came after Minister of State for the Environment Phenton Neymour agreed to meet with the association to discuss its concerns.
The BPRA also met with the government earlier this week. According to Neymour, the government has requeste ...

PROTESTERS against the sale of BTC to Cable & Wireless Communications plan to march on Parliament 10,000 strong when the House of Assembly reconvenes to debate the controversial deal.

The final step in the acquisition process is a debate and vote in Parliament scheduled for March 21.

"We will continue to fight and protest on all fronts until a receipt is generated by the Treasury to sa ...

Senator makes case for BTC sale

Many questions remain regarding the government's planned sale of a majority stake in the Bahamas Telecommunications Company (BTC), but Senator Tanya Wright says businesses should be clear on the need to open the industry for competition.
Wright, who is president of World Cooperation Group, wrote Guardian Business as a member of the private sector and said that businesses and entrepreneurs had been locked out of the lucrative industry for too long, and the sooner the state-owned monopoly is privatized, the better.
"While the jury is still out on the eventual majority owner of BTC, advocates of the business community should be steadfast in support of the liberalization of telecommunications ...

By NOELLE NICOLLS

Tribune Staff Reporter

nnicolls@tribunemedia.net

TWO weeks to scrutinise "all the facts and documentation" relating to the sale of BTC to Cable and Wireless is a "slap in the face", opponents claimed last night

"Two weeks notice is after the fact. For a document you have already signed, several weeks ago, you are going to set the date for its release two weeks prior to its debate in the House of Assembly," said Terry Miller, president of Civil Society Bahamas, an umbrella body for civic organisations.

"In the absence of all the facts, what we can clearly say is that memorandums of understanding made on behalf of the people of The Bahamas should not ...

Cabinet Office Statement on Sale of BTC

Nassau, Bahamas - Enclosed is a Statement by Cabinet Office on Sale of BTC.

It is time to bring an end
to the deceit that is now becoming a national debate regarding the
Government's decision to sell 51% of the Bahamas Telecommunications
Company (BTC) to Cable and Wireless Communications (CWC) and its
comparison to an earlier decision to sell 49% of BTC to Bluewater
Ventures.

there was a net balance of approximately $70 million of BTC's cash in
its bank account at the end of May 2007.  There was no allowance in
Bluewater's offer for this cash to be removed from BTC...

THE Progressive Liberal Party is not organising protesters to flock to Parliament next week for an anti-privatisation demonstration, said party chiefs yesterday.

If PLPs do protest it will be because of their personal beliefs not party affiliation or on orders from the upper echelons of the official opposition, they added.

Workers' Party Leader Rodney Moncur has called on PLP leader Perry Christie to rally 6,000 supporters for a planned protest against government's $210 million sale of BTC to Cable & Wireless Communications.

Unions granted leave to appeal judge's BTC decision

THE unions attempting to block the sale of 51 per cent of BTC to Cable and Wireless were granted leave yesterday to appeal a judge's decision which stated that they lacked the legal standing to bring a suit.

In January, the Bahamas Communications and Public Officers Union (BCPOU) and the Bahamas Public Managers Union (BCPMU), filed a joint action in the Supreme Court raising a number of issues. An appeal hearing in the Court of Appeal is set for Monday, March 21 - the same day as the House of Assembly debate on the BTC sale.

The unions contend that the government does not have the legal right to sell BTC.

Justice Neville Adderley in a ruling on the matter last month stated, "This case appea ...
