Nassau, Bahamas — Bahamas Press is zooming in on this Land Grab now taking place in the country. The raid now leaves the Bahamas like a naked woman exposed for the entire world to see.
We have heard about Earl’s island hop on the private helicopter of an investor. That investor we are told, now has before the Ingraham Cabinet plans to dredge almost nine acres of protected land near Bell Island in the Exumas.
When Earl Deveaux is not flying around the Bahamas in one investor’s helicopter, we see the Prime Minister, Hubert Ingraham, catching a ride on Butch Stewart’s plane, but this is not the heart of the story.
Bahamas Press understands the same investor’s helicopter Earl was seen getting a joy ride on is the same investor who supposedly dished out $1 million to the Bahamas National Trust [BNT] and here is where the story gets interesting.
Eric Carey and Neil McKinney are the two goons who head up the Trust and are supposed to be protecting land and wildlife in the country. They are supposed to be the ones stopping land grabbers from coming into our boarders; making sure all the protected land stays safe for generations to come. They are the ones who should be telling the government to stop dredging, to stop fishing, to band trolling and stop shooting in protected areas of the country. They are the ones who make recommendations to governments on where to stop development all in the name of ‘PROTECTING THE ENVIRONMENT’. But let’s look at what they have been doing.
It is alleged the Aga Khan gave Carey and Mckinney a donation in the name of the BNT of $1 million last year to assist in their undertakings at the Trust. Khan now wants to dredge 9 acres of protected land for his development. The receivers of funds are now hushed and say not a ward about the proposed dredging. But there is more.
