GBHA: Mitchell warned the world is watching - Aug 27, 2015 - 11:27:38 PM

(Statement) The comments of Minister of Foreign Affairs and Immigration Fred Mitchell have become so unhinged and extremist of late that it is difficult not to find the spectacle amusing.

At the end of the day, however, it is no laughing matter. In his continued attempts to label members of the Grand Bahama Human Rights Association (GBHRA) as disloyal to The Bahamas and guilty of defaming law enforcement officers, the minister is playing a very dangerous game.

Such unbalanced and misleading public comments are bound to spark unwarranted anger and hostility towards human rights defenders...

Darville: Mitchell’s claims are ‘the height of hypocrisy’ - Aug 26, 2015 - 11:29:19 AM

(Statement) I suppose it should come as no surprise at this point that Minister of Foreign Affairs and Immigration Fred Mitchell would stoop to the level he has to silence those he believes are a threat to his political ambitions.

There was a time when I had extremely high hopes about Mitchell’s ability to make a positive and lasting contribution to the democracy of this beloved nation. Sadly, I can no longer say I hold that view.

Mitchell’s latest claim is that the GBHRA is exaggerating when we say he is trying to stifle free speech. This, to put it bluntly, is the height of hypocrisy...

Nassau, Bahamas - The following is a statement by the Minister of the Environment and Housing, Hon. Kenred Dorsett:

It has come to my attention that there is a story being circulated via social media concerning the Government's fleet of garbage trucks. The story also infers that I own garbage trucks. Although I have addressed this issue before in the House of Assembly and in the media. I again state emphatically for those who did not hear or read my previous statements and for those who are only interested in creating political mischief, that I do not own nor have I ever owned a garbage collection truck or company...

Bahamas Insurance Association: Who Does Sanigest Speak For? - Aug 17, 2015 - 9:45:21 PM

Sanigest Internacionale, a company that most Bahamians have never heard of, has been described as the architect of our proposed National Health Insurance scheme, and lately has been commenting to the press on the scheme's  implementation.
By responding to Sanigest's recent public comments, the Bahamas Insurance Association (BIA) does not want to unjustifiably attribute their statements to the government. However, we note that Sanigest was engaged by the Ministry of Health, and there haas been no effort to distance the government from the company's provocative and divisive comments...

Bahamas Coke bottle logos bearing popular Bahamian names - Aug 14, 2015 - 6:33:22 AM

New Providence, Bahamas - In 2011 Coca-Cola Australia started a “debranding” campaign that personalized Coca-Cola bottles like never before. The campaign removed “Coca-Cola” from one side of the can/bottle and replaced it with a person’s name. Since 2011 this campaign has grown momentum and been replicated worldwide. Countries including the United States, Canada, Mexico, United Kingdom, and Colombia have placed popular local names on Coca-Cola bottles. This year Share a Coke is being personalized for Bahamians by Caribbean Bottling Company (CBC), the local producer of Coca-Cola products.

Smith: Anchor projects are the bane of The Bahamas - Aug 13, 2015 - 5:30:37 PM

The practice of government forging secret agreements with the foreign developers of mega-resorts has become an existential threat to both the environment and the rule of law in The Bahamas, Fred Smith, QC told College of The Bahamas (COB) students.

Speaking at a workshop for COB’s Environmental Law Clinic, he said that thanks to these shrouded deals, known as Heads of Agreements, the Family Islands are now strewn with the “rotting” remains of dozens of failed resort ventures.

“The Bahamas is littered with the decaying carcasses of white elephants,” he said. “A white elephant is a possession that is useless or troublesome...

GBHRA: Mitchell trying to use fear to stifle free speech - Aug 12, 2015 - 8:49:39 PM

The Grand Bahama Human Rights Association (GBHRA) has noticed of late a disturbing trend in the public pronouncements of Foreign Affairs and Immigration Minister Fred Mitchell.

For some reason, Mitchell seems to have become suspicious – perhaps even downright afraid – of the exercise of free speech and open discussion in this society. Especially when he feels the message is potentially critical of himself, his government, or the PLP party in general.

Displays of intolerance by those in power are nothing new; there have been countless examples on both sides of the political divide over the years. That said, I find it personally disappointing to watch Mitchell...
