Nassau, Bahamas — Bahamas premier faces test when graft inquiry resumes
Sir Lynden Pindling may be facing the strongest political challenge in his 17 years as prime minister of the archipelago off Florida. A Royal Commission of Inquiry resumes its six-month-old hearings tomorrow. It has received testimony linking Bahamian officials to payoffs from drug traffickers. The commission recessed partly because of a July 4-7 Caribbean Community summit to which Sir Lynden played host.
Opposition leaders are preparing for new elections they think will be inevitable after the inquiry ends.
