Jack: I'll never
betray the PP
FROM PAGE A1
Warner said he has contracted English lawyers to
review the Concacaf report that reportedly led to his
demise and people will "hold their heads and bawl"
when they hear what the lawyers have to say.
He told the crowd of some 1,000 people: "Let not
your hearts be troubled. Yesterday I met with English
lawyers who reviewed the Concacaf report.
"When you are told (the outcome of the review)
by these English lawyers, and a few locals, you will
hold your head and bawl.
You have nothing to worry about," he said.
Warner said he has been president of Concacaf
for 20 years and he never signed a cheque or agreement
or opened a bank account in the US."
Speaking above a banner that read, "The Black
king from Africa has arrived," Warner sent mixed
signals about his political affiliations.
He pledged his loyalty to the UNC and urged his
constituents to reject the PNM but had some advice
for Persad-Bissessar about MPs who were only con-
cerned about themselves.
He said he still sees the People s Partnership as
the best option for T&T because the PNM under
Opposition Leader Dr Keith Rowley is out of sync
with the people.
"T&T will fare much better under Persad-Bissessar
than Rowley," Warner said.
"I remain fully committed to its (the PP) cause.
"Never will I betray or be disloyal to the PP. Nobody
has defended the Prime Minister more than I."
In the same breath, Warner asked the crowd since
when suspicion and allegations were the basis for
hounding someone out of office.
He said against the advice of political pundits, he
returned to contest the Chaguanas West seat for val-
idation from his constituents.
He said he spent 35 months as Minister of Works
and Transport and Minister of National Security and
no one can accuse him of any corrupt activity.
Warner said he had asked for a salary of $1 for his
political services and for the next year, he will take
He said two weeks before his resignation, he wrote
Persad-Bissessar telling her to let him resign and go
after Rowley whom he blamed for the main attack
on him, and return to his constituents for validation.
"Everything I said I will do I am doing," he said.
"Why this hatred and spite and venom from some
of her key ministers?"
Warner promised to hold the PM s hand and walk
in the East-West Corridor to help her win the area.

Baby Persia Meleigh Lee Foon-Cum-
mings has pneumonia, a medical source
The source, who described the baby s
condition as critical, said Persia developed
the condition last weekend and is being
carefully monitored in a ventilator at the
Neo-natal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), Eric
Williams Medical Sciences Complex, Mt
Baby Persia is the fifth-born of T&T s
first sextuplets born to Petra Lee Foon and
Kieron Cummings on March 4.
Contacted yesterday, chairman of the
North Central Regional Health Authority
(NCRHA) Dr Shehenaz Mohammed said
doctors and nurses are working round-the-
clock to ensure the baby gets the best care.
"We have a team of doctors and nurses
who continue to be dedicated to baby Persia.
They are carefully monitoring her day and
night. Baby Persia, like her siblings, has
been receiving the best care possible. Hos-
pital staff have also grown very close to the
babies," Mohammed said.
Medical sources said baby Persia began
to show little signs of improvement but said
she is not "out of the woods."
They said although the pneumonia was
"at a low level" every day blood has to be
taken from the infant to be tested. She was
also given antibiotics and intravenous flu-
ids.Baby Persia was also earlier diagnosed
with a gastro-intestinal disease called necrot-
ic enterocolitis (NEC) that mostly affects
A few weeks ago, medical sources added,
baby Persia began intravenous feeds and
staff were hopeful she would join her three
other siblings who are said to be doing well
On March 30, the first born and biggest
baby boy, Kaelon Nasir Lee Foon Cummings,
died from upper gastro-intestinal bleeding.
His brother Paeton Christopher Cummings,
who was the last born, died on April 17
from the same condition.
A doctor at the hospital said because the
babies were taken from the womb so early
there was a very high possibility they would
have difficulties, as their organs were not
properly developed and they would be sus-
ceptible to infection.

Pneumonia is an inflammatory
condition of the lung affecting primarily
the microscopic air sacs known as
alveoli. It is usually caused by infection
with viruses or bacteria and less
commonly other microorganisms,
certain drugs and other conditions such
as autoimmune diseases.
Typical symptoms include a cough,
chest pain, fever and difficulty
breathing. If the pneumonia is severe,
the affected person is generally
admitted to hospital.
