"We will enact the law where
we bring criminal charges against
the Minister of Health, against the
CEO in Sangre Grande and maybe
against the Permanent Secretary

This action further stems from
conflict between the staff of the
ERHA and its CEO Ameena Ali.
For more than a year staff mem-

that she be removed.
Ali has previously been moved

writing their reasons for protesting.
"I have indicated to the people
who are protesting to put what they
are protesting about in writing,"
Khan said in a telephone interview.
He stated that he was concerned
about the lack of services being
provided in the hospital and noted

writing and let their voices be

Jaggan, Nicole s mother,

appearance, and intend

months by calls from

JADE'S MOTHER FEELS SAME PAIN
The mother of another missing
child, 12-year-old Jade Peters, has
reached out to Bhagwandass-
Pearl Narine, whose daughter
Jade went missing on December
26, 2014, said she knew how
Jade left her Dow Village,
California, home to purchase a
phone card at a nearby shop and
"My heart really goes out to her. I hope one day she
finds Nicole, that one day she gets back her daughter
and can be able to hear her voice and see her smile
again," said Narine.
Jade has been gone for more than 45 days now but
Narine said her faith had not wavered as she prayed
everyday for Jade's safe return.
"We keep a candle lit with her picture next to it.
Every night I pray for her safe return. I know one day I
will see her walk through my door."
Narine said the search for Jade had taken police
across the country since they believed the men who
had the child kept moving in order to evade capture.
"Police have been tracking them. They recently
showed up in South, but by the time the police hear
about it, they had already moved out."
Anyone with information on Jade's whereabouts
can contact the Couva police station at 636-2333.
