Doctors have performed a
second operation on the leg of
57-year-old Premnath Rampaul
because it was not healing prop-
erly, his daughter Meera said
"He is in a lot of pain now,"
she said in a telephone interview
with the T&T Guardian.
Rampaul s leg was fractured
after one of the vehicles in the
Attorney General s security detail
ran over it on July 29 during the
Chaguanas West by-election.
Rampaul was initially taken to
the Gulf View Medical Centre,
San Fernando, where he under-
went surgery and ten steel
implants were inserted in his leg.
However, two Sundays ago he
was transferred to the San Fer-
nando General Hospital.
His daughter told T&T
Guardian yesterday that on Fri-
day doctors performed a second
surgery on his right leg.
She added: "The doctors said
the healing process was taking
"They took out the pins and
steel inside and put it outside so
he has an external fixation.
That s what the doctors called
blood sugar went to 300. He is
a diabetic so you know it s a lot
of complications...one thing after
the other but the surgery was
successful. It s just a matter of
"We have to wait and see how
it s healing."
Told that Dr David Ali, head
of the private nursing home that
first treated her dad, had decided
to waive his medical bill, Meera
said she did not trust his word.
She said Attorney General
Anand Ramlogan, who arranged
for her father to be admitted to
the hospital, had told her that
either he or the State would pay
the bill. She said the next day
her father was transferred.
Meera said, however, she felt
disgusted over the entire situa-
tion, since she felt the politicians
had turned their backs on her
father because they no longer
needed support from Chaguanas
West constituents because they
had already lost the seat.
Contacted yesterday on the
matter, Chaguanas West MP Jack
Warner said he was waiting to
hear Ramlogan say whether or
not he was paying the bill before
he stepped in. (SW)

A woman s arm was broken and an
elderly man ended up in hospital

for the purpose of committing an
indictable offence. The cutlass and
piece of wood were taken to court.
Charges were laid by PC Ogunsheye
The facts, however, were not taken.
Magistrate Stroude said the prose-
cution had requested time to trace him

and remanded into custody until
tomorrow. The matter was transferred
to the Fourth Court.
