DNA: Bahamians Duped on BTC - Jun 30, 2015 - 6:43:54 PM

In the months after taking office, this Christie administration made a public spectacle of its efforts to reclaim “controlling interest” in BTC. Negotiations between the government and the principals of Cable and Wireless communications dragged on for months and at the conclusion of those talks, Mr. Christie and his cabinet boasted about the landmark deal which he promised would make the government an equal shareholder with Cable and Wireless and ultimately result in major benefits for Bahamians.

Unfortunately, WE HAVE BEEN DUPED! That new arrangement inked with Cable and Wireless was not worth the paper it was written on! When it was all said and done, the government was only ...

FNM Press Conference Statement after Baha Mar Bankruptcy Announcement - Jun 30, 2015 - 3:44:32 PM


The FNM is deeply concerned with developments at Baha Mar. We are especially concerned for the 2000 plus employees of the Resort whose continued employment is in jeopardy. And we are concerned for all the Bahamian contractors engaged by the developers who have no idea when Baha Mar will be in a position to make good on monies owed to them for work completed and continuing up to a few days ago.

The FNM is alarmed that the project agreement originally negotiated by Christie and rescued from disarray by the last FNM Government is now unravelling before our eyes.

Prime Minister Perry Christie and his Government appear clueless as to their next move. They were caught flatfooted and in the dark...
