We, the leaders of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, the United States, the President of the European Council and the President of the European Commission, join in expressing our grave concern about Russia’s continued actions to undermine Ukraine’s sovereignty, territorial integrity and independence. We once again condemn Russia’s illegal annexation of Crimea, and actions to de-stabilize eastern Ukraine. Those actions are unacceptable and violate international law.

We condemn the tragic downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 and the deaths of 298 innocent civilians. We demand a prompt, full, unimpeded and transparent international investigation. We call upon all sides to establish, maintain and fully respect a cease-fire at and around the crash site, as demanded by UN Security Council resolution 2166, so that the investigators can take up their work and to recover the remains of all victims and their personal possessions.

On July 15, 2014, the Bahamas Real Estate Association (BREA) published a list of real estate agents and brokers in its Gazette, naming persons who were no longer licensed to practice in the Bahamas.

Statement by Bahamas DPM Philip Brave Davis pertaining to the estate of the late Franz Kohlrautz - Jul 30, 2014 - 2:59:51 PM

brave_davis.jpg
Over the past few days there have been several inaccurate and misleading stories in the local newspapers and online regarding the Estate of the Late Franz Kohlrautz and my role as Executor of the Estate.  Generally I do not discuss my private affairs and those of my friends publicly, however, the gross distortions and aspersions being fueled by those who seek to make mischief cannot go unanswered.  I do not take attacks on my character and integrity lightly.

I am the Executor of the Estate of the Late Franz Kohlrautz who was a very close and dear friend. Kenia Baptista Mir married Mr. Kohlrautz, a man 51 years her senior, in 2009 very soon after he met her in Cuba during a brief social visit there.  Their short marriage was very tumultuous, filled with much concern about his young wife’s behaviour and actions and they had been estranged for a considerable period prior to the time of his death in 2011...
