Editorials


Dr. Editor,

The plot, the plan and the procedure for the killing of Sir Harry Oakes (perhaps the richest man in the world at the time) along with SHAH of Persia (Iran), Howard Hughes, Harlington Hartford and many princes of Saudi Arabia, was all because of power and property in The Bahamas and what is now called Turks and Caicos Islands.

As I have become more spiritual recently, (not Christian), I am Muslim-Rastafarian, the physical world looms large.

A former noted resident of East Street, Nassau, whose only son was summarily â lost⠝ was an integral part of this plot. Also involved, was a famous real estate firm with its army of agents who were at the heart of it. Two books that I recently acquired gives me details that I have not acquired in the past. The Bahamas and Nassau was the playground for the rich and famous. Miss. Bahamas makes the front page of Ebony Magazine as did my father's good friend, who is recently demised, Sir Etienne Dupuch's black son-in-law.

Turks and Caicos was thought by many to be much involved in the plot, plan and procedure in the death of Sir Harry Oakes. In fact, along with the salt contract of Morton Salt with Bermuda, this is one of the main reasons for the secession of the Turks and Caicos Islands from The Bahamas. Prior to 1936, (when marijuana was still legal), the flag of The Bahamas was flown over those southern islands of paradise.

My research shows no official document (in Britain or elsewhere) was ever produced removing those fair islands from the purview of the Bahamas, (expulsis pirates restitute commerce) - More of this later.
