KINGSTON---Three years after mem-
bers of the security forces went into
Tivoli Gardens in search of Christo-
pher "Dudus" Coke, who was wanted
in the United States on gun running
and drug trafficking charges, the fam-
ily of a businessman who was shot
and killed during the exercise has filed
a multimillion dollar lawsuit against
the Jamaica government.
Businessman and accountant Keith
Clarke was at his home in the upscale
Corporate Area community of Kirkland
Heights on May 27, 2010, with his wife
and daughter when several members
of the Jamaica Defence Force (JDF) and
the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF)
descended on the family home.
Attorney Leonard Green, who is rep-
resenting Clarke's widow Claudette
and daughter Brittini in the J$18 million
(one Jamaica dollar = US$0.01 cents)
lawsuit, claims that the joint police
military personnel cut the metal grill
to the entrance of the house and then
unleashed a barrage of gunshots.
The lawsuit notes that the military
and police were engaged in sustained
gunfire on the house, while the
deceased and claimants were inside.
The family reportedly made several
phone calls to the police, other emer-
gency services and neighbours for help,
but received no assistance.
Clarke reportedly went for his
licensed firearm, but was unable to
withstand the sustained assault of the
Clarke was shot 21 times in the back.
The claimants argue that at no time
were they attacking the soldiers who
were later charged in connection with
The lawsuit also claims that at no
time was the family hosting Coke
and/or eight heavily armed men in their
home on the day the security forces
attacked the house.
Coke, who later surrendered to law
enforcement officials and was extradited
to the US, was sentenced to 23 years
in federal prison. He received the max-
imum sentences on one count of rack-
eteering conspiracy and one count of
conspiracy to commit assault with a
dangerous weapon in aid of racketeer-
ing. He had pleaded guilty to the

SANTIAGO---Chile issued a red alert yesterday for
the Copahue volcano on the border with Argentina
that has become increasingly active.
Chile's Interior and Security Minister Andres Chad-
wick said the increased activity could lead to an
eruption and officials will soon begin evacuating
2,240 people, or 460 families, in a 25-kilometre
"This evacuation is obligatory; it's not voluntary,"
Chadwick told reporters.
Chile's Emergency Office says the evacuation could
last about 48 hours, but could be delayed because
of heavy rains.
The nearly 2,965-metre volcano sits in the Andes
cordillera, straddling the border with Argentina's
Argentine officials have issued a yellow alert. They
overflew the area during the weekend and are mon-
itoring the volcano with a network of web cameras.
Access to the volcano is closed within a four kilometre
radius on the Argentine side, but nearby towns are
open for business.
The Copahue started spewing ash and gas in Decem-
ber, prompting a red alert then.
The volcano had a major eruption in 1992, according
to the Mining Ministry's Sernageomin geology unit.
It became highly active with blasts and gases in 2002,
in its strongest activity in more than 20 years. (AP)

BELMOPAN---Prime Minister Dean Barrow says
the government will assist in sending neonatal cases
to private hospitals following the death of 12 babies
at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital (KHMH)
that had been linked to the outbreak of enterobacter
cloacae---an organism that is said to be responsible
for major outbreaks in Neonatal Intensive Care
Units (NICU) all over the world.
In a statement, Prime Minister Barrow has "agreed
to assist with any interim arrangements needed to
outsource urgent neonatal cases to private hospitals
while the KHMH unit is being made completely safe
Director of Medical Services at the hospital, Dr
Adrian Coye, said that the enterobacter cloacae organ-
ism is not a superbug.
"The problem lies in the fact that it is very fas-
tidious, difficult to clear and there is transmission
by direct contact and also by indirect contact. So it
can be on the skin of any of us right now in this
room, on your clothing material, on stethoscopes,
on IV drip stands, the surfaces in the clinical area,
etc," he said.
"The profile of the resistance pattern within the
organism we have found is sensitive to antibiotics
that we do have in the hospital and made available
through the Ministry of Health."
He said due to the nature of the outbreak, help
will be coming from the Washington-based Pan
American Health Organisation (PAHO).
In the aftermath of the deaths, the hospital's NICU
has been closed and an independent contractor has
ordered an assessment of the air quality in the unit.
This will be followed by the removal and disinfection
of all equipment and terminal cleaning of the entire
