Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : June 17th 2013 Contents She said on Wednesday she contacted her
pundit Roopnarine Maharaj, of Iere Village,
who read Seenath s patra (horoscope.)
Maharaj said he read the Rashi Mala which
showed that Seenath would be found on the
western side of the forest.
Maharaj told the Guardian he took Singh
to Matura on Wednesday and while driving
they passed Nelson s house.
He said he got a vibration, reversed the
vehicle and drove straight to Nelson s house.
He said he asked him if he saw Seenath and
he said, "No."
Maharaj said they exchanged numbers and
Nelson said he would look for her.
Two days later Nelson found Seenath when
she walked into his yard.
Even after the search was called off, her
daughter Roshnie, 19, did not lose hope that
her mother was alive nor did she give up
Yesterday, a visibly happy and smiling Rosh-
nie could not contain her joy that her mother
She said when she saw her mother at the
Sangre Grande hospital on Saturday night they
broke down in tears.
Roshnie said her mother was in a lot of
pain, her legs were swollen, blistered and her
left shoulder was dislocated.
She said her mother used a mora tree branch
The 19-year-old held on to the branch yes-
terday and said: "This is the reason my mother
survived. Without this she could not move
and walk down the river."
Mohan said he intends to clean and varnish
the branch and hang it in the Palmyra Shiv
Mandhir, which Seenath attends, as a symbol
of inspiration for all. He said the incident has
changed a lot of things for the family.
He said the family was grateful for all the
help the family received as he said, "There
was no better Father s Day gift."
Roshnie also gave her father a wallet for
Father s Day.
Mohan dismissed rumours that his wife had
He said when he looked at Seenath he could
tell she had been through a lot.
"She is a very spiritual person. It was not
easy for her being out there, being alone. I
felt pity when I saw her. When I looked at
her last night (Saturday,) when I looked at her
feet I believe her story. I know it is true," he
Roshnie said her mother told them she
found a stone shaped like a Shiva Lingam
(oval-shaped Hindu symbol) and offered
prayers and flowers to it.
She said her mother also told her that one
night she was sitting with her back against a
tree when she felt a snake touch her ear.
"She scream and move away," Roshnie said.
Mohan admitted that given the ordeal
Seenath experienced she may need spiritual
guidance and counselling.
He said while she was in the forest she said
she prayed "Lord take me."
Mohan said the sad part is no one from the
Government, except Toco/Fishing Pond Coun-
cilor Terry Rondon and Manahambre councilor
Judy Hart came to give the family support
during their ordeal.

being investigated by the police.
The Integrity Commission is
expected to conduct its own inves-
tigation when a new board is
appointed by President Anthony
Carmona in a few days.
"The analysis of this document
provided overwhelming proof of its
fraudulent nature," Berryhill said.
"There are many inconsistencies
and questionable points that by
themselves would easily lead any
analyst to the conclusion that none
of the documents can be trusted."
Berryhill was expected to arrive
in Port-of-Spain last night to release
his forensic report and answer ques-

intentions of the People s Partnership
Government to tap the phone of the
Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP)
and the intimidation of the Guardian
journalist who broke the story about
the early proclamation of Section 34
of the Administration of Justice
(Indictable Proceedings) Act 2011.
That legislation would have made
it possible for two former financiers
of the United National Congress, a
member of the People s Partnership
coalition, to have their court matters

The allegations have been denied
by Ramlogan and other Government
ministers. The executive summary
of Berryhill s report said in part:
"The authenticity of an e-mail mes-
sage requires corroborating infor-
mation from multiple sources.
"If the authenticity of an e-mail
is in question, a single-source printed
copy would never be sufficient to
resolve the issue," it added.
"The analysis of printed e-mails
in the absence of other data can
never prove its authenticity."
Berryhill, in his report said, "If an
analysis discloses multiple fatal flaws
there can be no doubt the document

the television he was "praying hard" for her
to come out of the forest.
Nelson said on Saturday he was supposed
to go to the grocery store, but "my mind tell
me stay home. Then I see this lady walking
in my yard. I recognise her immediately from
the clothes she was wearing.

He said he made her sit, contacted her
sister Champa Singh, who had left her num-

searching for Seenath. He said he also con-

Nelson gave her a meal of rice, bodi and

outside his home.
Seenath s sister, Champa and Pundit Roop-

yesterday where they gave him a hamper
with foodstuff and a gift for his actions.
Singh said they wanted to show their
appreciation for his help.
She said Seenath told them when she was
wandering she came upon a man with a

"He chased her away. He tell her go from
here, I cannot help you, " Singh said.
