JFK Suffers Setback in US$25M Damages Lawsuit

first_imgA request to drop charges against several medical doctors at the John F. Kennedy Memorial Center (JFKMC) on trial for alleged negligence that caused the death of Representative Edward Forh’s daughter Nakita, was yesterday denied by Judge Yussif Kaba of Civil Law Court‘A’ at the Temple of Justice in Monrovia.Forh is claiming US$25 million from the defendants for Nakita’s death on September 27, 2014, on the hospital’s compound.JFK lawyers submitted their demand immediately after Rep. Forh and his witnesses rested with the production of documentary and oral evidences.They in their documentary and oral evidences claimed that none of the witnesses’ testimonies linked any of the defendants to the commission of wrongful death of Forh’s daughter and as such Judge Kaba should not allow their clients to take advantage of the opportunity to testify and exonerate themselves from the claim.Those sued and are expected to testify are Munah Tarpeh, Tannie G. Sneh, Mary G. Howard Nyaquie, Dr. Korto Dorbor, Dr. Billy C. Johnson, Dr. David Okiror, Prof. Joseph Njoh, Korzu B. Koryan-Browne and Dr. Wvannie Scott-McDonald all of whom are employees of the JFK.It was the argument Judge Kaba refused to accept yesterday, thereby authorizing all of the defendants to testify beginning today, October 4.When he denied the appeal, Judge Kaba declared that the jury and court under his jurisdiction have every legal authority to ensure that the parties (Forh and the defendants) give accounts of what led to the death of Nakita.“We are not going to render any judgment now unless we have heard all of the evidences before the court. It is by those evidences that we can determine the merit of the case,” Kaba said.He then scheduled the defendants’ testimonies to today, Tuesday.Before he denied the defendants’ appeal, Forh’s legal team on July 31, 2015, filed a lawsuit for “Action of Damages for Wrongful Death” of his daughter at the facility due to their alleged refusal to accept and treat her in September 2014.In a 26-count complaint, Forh prayed the court to grant him US$10 million for general damages, US$5 million for punitive damages, US$5 million in compensatory damages and US$5 million in consequential damages.He said the hospital first refused to accept Nakita D. Forh on Friday, September 26, 2014, until she died on Saturday, September 27.“Despite the critical state of my daughter, the hospital insisted that we bring Ebola clearance while I continued to tell them that my daughter had asthma, but they did not listen to me until she died,” Forh said in his lawsuit He alleged that they arrived early Saturday morning at JFK, but none of the individuals he sued gave attention to his daughter when they simply needed to allow her use the Asthma Nebulizer to restore her breathing to normalcy.In their response, JFK lawyers argued that considering the circumstances, neither of the defendants is liable for the death of Nakita D. Forh as Representative Forh himself refused to listen to the advice of doctors and took his daughter home despite the fact that he had no medical knowledge.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Come on Mr President, call an election… you are at the end of your…

first_imgDear Editor,President Granger has sent a letter to the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) urging them to begin preparations for General and Regional Elections in Guyana. While this seems to be a commendable act on his part, you have to read on to see the nefarious plan in that so called elections preparation bid. The rest of his statement says, “The Government of Guyana is committed to doing everything possible to ensure that the Commission is provided with the financial resources and have sufficient time to conduct credible elections.”Now, let us stop there and analyse the last part of that sentence, “give the Commission sufficient time to conduct credible elections”, that “sufficient time” he is insinuating is time for GECOM to hold a long drawn-out house-to-house process which in actuality is a People’s National Congress (PNC) election campaign process to rig the elections.So, the sinister plan is tag funding for the Commission on to a house-to-house campaign, then summon a parliamentary session in which he would somehow coerce the Opposition into voting on one unitary whole. In essence, the PNC would have gotten what they wanted; that is, outsmart the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) with a well prepared list of fake SOPs to gain that one-seat majority again.Well, I have news for them that is not going to happen because that plan rests on the Opposition and the Government coming together on a two-thirds majority plan to grant GECOM those privileges. So, let me assure Granger that the PPP/C is not giving in to that plan, no never! If Granger and his rigging partners think that the PPP/C is going to buy into that foolishness they need to disabuse their minds of the thought!So, to Granger and his PNC controlled GECOM this is the situation, we will go into a constitutional crisis because you folks have made it possible with that corrupt rigging attitude of yours. You still believe that you can pull it off with a one-seat majority win and foist yourself on the Guyanese people yet again, but that is not going to happen. To Mr Granger, your nefarious tricks have exposed you; please call the election?The way forward will be the following; except the President call an election as required by law, there can be no extension to the March deadline. The funding Granger is talking about has already been budgeted for in the last “early budget” read and successfully passed in Parliament. Ample provisions for the holding of an election by GECOM was provided for in that budget. No allocations were made for house-to-house registration which in our case is unnecessary and improbable, because there is a valid voters list, valid up until April 30.Which is more costly a house-to-house exercise coupled with an election or an election? The answer is an election and that we must have within the 90-day period. We still have time because March 19, is the deadline date, come on Granger do the honest thing stop pussyfooting you are at the end of your tether.You have to realise that Granger is trying his utmost to stave off that constitutional crisis which comes into immediate effect in the coming weeks. This is what has him in a bind. The simple solution to all of this Mr Granger is for you to call an election, the Constitution requires that of you.Respectfully,Neil Adamslast_img read more
