Parents of stillborn baby want answers
Published: 
Monday, September 1, 2014

“Something went horribly wrong and I want answers,” cried 26-year-old Ravi Lal-Ramsingh at the funeral of his baby girl. Lal-Ramsingh and his wife Vishwanie, 25, who are blaming medical negligence their baby’s death bade a tearful goodbye to their firstborn at their Princes Town home. 

The service for baby Sara, who was born dead at the San Fernando General Hospital, was held under Hindu rites. “Everybody rushes to make children, but I waited so long because I wanted to make sure I could give my child everything and look what happen,” cried Lal-Ramsingh as he hugged his mother Sylvia.

The grandmother said she has four grandsons and was anxiously waiting to hold her first grand-daughter.  “But my princess gone. That is God work,” she said. Vishwanie, who was discharged from hospital on Friday could not attend the burial of her baby at Batchyia cemetery in Penal because her pressure was high.

Speaking with T&T Guardian, Lal-Ramsingh said his wife remained home with an aunt, a nurse, who was monitoring her pressure. He called on Health Minister Dr Fuad Khan to intervene because he is not confident that a proper investigation will be done. “No one from the hospital call us yet,” he said. He said the autopsy performed at the hospital’s mortuary on Saturday stated the cause of death was retro placenta haemorrhage, intra uterine asphyxia and maternal hypertension in pregnancy.

Lal-Ramsing said on Wednesday he was assured by a doctor that everything was alright with his wife and child and he had nothing to worry about. He said when his wife began experiencing pain on Wednesday, the nurses gave her injection and told her she was not ready to deliver. “When I come Thursday, (the doctor) tell me it appears the child pass.”  The South West Regional Health Authority has launched an investigation into the death of the baby.

Suriname leader’s son confesses to ‘US attack plot’ countryman remains in T&T prison
Published: 
Monday, September 1, 2014

The son of the president of Suriname has confessed to attempting to facilitate Lebanese terrorism group Hezbollah to establish a South American outpost. While Dino Bouterse waits on his sentencing hearing carded for January next year, his countryman Edward Muntslag, with whom he was jointly charged for conspiring to smuggle 10 kilos of cocaine into the United States, remains detained in T&T pending extradition. 

According to several international reports on a hearing in a United States Federal court last Friday, Bouterse pleaded guilty to the joint drug trafficking indictment in addition to the terrorism charges. 
Bouterse was extradited to the US last year after he was arrested in Panama in relation to the cocaine trafficking which is alleged to have taken place between 2011 and August, last year. He was later slapped with the terrorism charges which emanated from meetings in Greece and Panama with undercover US agents, posing as representatives of the militant organisation.

During Friday’s hearing, Bouterse admitted to agreeing to take US$2 million to provide Hezbollah operatives with fake identities, weapons including surface to air missiles and locations in his country to establish bases to attack US and Dutch targets. As part of the deal, Bouterse also asked that some of the operatives perform “tough guy” duties within Suriname on his request.  Bouterse’s father Desi ruled Suriname as a military dictator from 1980 to 1987 and returned to power when he was elected by that country’s Parliament in 2010. He has since expressed shock over his son’s arrest and has said he was “responsible for his own actions”.

According to the drugs charge both Bouterse and Muntslag were accused of participating in the transportation of a suitcase with the drugs from Suriname to an unnamed Caribbean island aboard a commercial flight in July, last year. A month later, Muntslag, a 30-year-old businessman,  was arrested by officers of the Organised Crime, Narcotics and Firearms Bureau (OCNFB) while shopping at Trincity Mall. During his first hearing before Chief Magistrate Marcia Ayers-Caesar, Muntslag applied for bail, however his request was refused and since then he has remained detained at the Maximum Security Prison in Arouca. 

His extradition proceedings have reached an advanced stage with a hearing in the Port-of-Spain Magistrates’ Court scheduled for tomorrow. Muntslag is challenging his extradition on the grounds that documents sent by US authorities to the Office of the Attorney General had not been properly authenticated. Permanent secretary in the ministry, Marlene Juman has testified to clarify the issue. Attorneys representing the Central Authority and the requesting state are expected to call the police officer who arrested Muntslag on August 29, last year, as their latest witness before making final legal submissions. Muntslag is being represented by Keith Scotland and Asha Watkins-Montserin. Jagdeo Singh and Central Authority head Netram Kowlessar are representing the US interest in the case.

Seetahal relative: Family didn’t ‘blank’ Dana’s Chaconia medal
Published: 
Monday, September 1, 2014

One member of the family of murdered Senior Counsel Dana Seetahal says the family has not “blanked” Seetahal’s Chaconia medal but will collect the award at a later date. In a telephone interview on Saturday, Seetahal’s sister, Susan Francois told a reporter she would not be attending the event, and that she was disappointed as she felt Seetahal deserved the nation’s highest award.
The interview was covered on page A3 of the Guardian yesterday with the headline “Dana’s family blanks award”.

Francois is director of the Financial Intelligence Unit. In a statement on social media website Twitter yesterday, Seetahal’s niece Danielle Francois, who is Susan Francois’ daughter, said statements that the family was “blanking” the National Awards were a blatant distortion of the facts. “The family remains appreciative of the award bestowed (but) we’re simply unable to attend the event, however we will be accepting the award at a later date,” Francois wrote.

She said her mother had expressed disappointment as she had been told that the group, Powerful Ladies of T&T had nominated Seetahal for the Order of the Republic of T&T but was still appreciative of the Chaconia Gold Medal. Seetahal is being given the national award more than three months after she was assassinated on her way home just after midnight on May 3. Her murder remains unsolved. On August 20, David “Junior” Baker, 28, was killed in a shoot-out with police. Senior police officers directly involved in Seetahal’s murder probe said Baker was one of the key suspects involved in Seetahal’s well-planned assassination.

Red, white and black in PoS streets

Monday, September 1, 2014

Thousands gathered at the Queen’s Park Savannah to look on as the 52nd anniversary Independence parade proceeded from the Savannah to St James. Taking to the Port-of-Spain streets, citizens outfitted in red, white and black watched the military receive the traditional inspection by President Anthony Carmona under the early-morning son.

Arriving to cheers and applause shortly before 8 am, Carmona was escorted by Major General Kenrick Maharaj, Chief of Defence Staff, as he inspected members of the T&T Defence Force, standing alert in crisp white uniforms.

For the first time, a woman, Lieutenant Commander Kele-ann Bourne, led the soldiers, who were accompanied by music from the Police, Regiment, Fire and Prisons bands. At around 9 am, the protective services marched from the Savannah along Frederick Street, then onto Park Street before proceeding along Tragarete Road en route to the Police Training College compound in St James.

President’s wife gives award to Ibrahim
Published: 
Monday, September 1, 2014

In an unusual move, Reema Carmona, wife of President Anthony Carmona was forced to present a national award—the Chaconia Medal (Gold) for community service—to Rasheeda Ibrahim. Ibrahim did not shake hands with President Carmona, who presented all the other awards. Instead, she shook the hands of Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar.  Sources say that was due to religious traditions and that such a situation never happened before in the country’s 52 years of independence. 

Several awards were presented posthumously at the national awards ceremony, which took place at Queen’s Hall last evening. Murdered Senior Counsel Dana Seetahal was awarded the Chaconia Medal Gold. Although her family was not present to accept it, a statement from a family member yesterday said that they would collect the award at a later date. One recipient of a national award, Pastor Clive Dottin, told reporters after that the Seetahal family was still hurting from the tragic loss earlier this year. Seetahal was gunned down as she was on her way home in Woodbrook on May 4. No one has been charged with her murder. “The killing of Dana Seetahal must not be lost upon us,” Dottin added. “I think we have to pray for this family. We have to not criticise at this point in time about whether she should have been awarded the Order of Republic (the nation’s highest award) or the Chaconia Medal Gold,” he added.

“I think that family is still hurting (and) the mere idea that a legal luminary could be shot and killed just like that and nobody (charged) as yet shows that international terrorists have violated the space of this country. That is how serious it is.” Dottin was awarded the Chaconia Medal (bronze). Former government minister Dr Daphne Phillips, who also received a national award—the Medal for the Development of Women—acknowledged Seetahal’s significant contribution to the nation.

52 years of sporting excellence
Published: 
Monday, September 1, 2014
Sportification

As the country celebrates 52 years of Independence, it is timely to remind ourselves of some of the outstanding contributions of our sportswomen and sportsmen in their respective sporting disciplines locally, regionally and internationally. 

In athletics, Hasley Crawford won the 100 metres gold medal at the Montreal Olympics in 1976, 36 years after, Keshorn Walcott became the country’s second Olympic gold medallist when he won the javelin event at the London Olympics in 2012. Jehue Gordon won gold in the men’s 400 metres hurdle at the IAAF World Championship in Moscow, Russia in 2014. Other notable track and field athletes are Cleopatra Borrel, Michelle-Lee Ahye, Wendell Mottley, Ato Boldon, Richard Thompson, Lalonde Gordon, and Richard Thompson. 

This country has produced four boxing world champions. Claude Noel became this country’s first world champion in 1981, when he defeated Mexican Rodolfo Gonzalez to win the WBA World Lightweight title. Leslie Stewart won the WBA World Light Heavyweight title in 1987 defeating Marvin ‘Pops’ Johnson at the Jean Pierre Complex. Ria Ramnarine became the country’s first female world champion when she defeated Ana Fernandez in 2005 at the Jean Pierre Complex to win the WIBA Mini Flyweight World title. At the time of her shocking, untimely death in 2009, Giselle Salandy was a multiple World champion holding the WBA, WBC and WIBA middle weight titles.

Debra O’Connor could be considered as one of the best badminton players of all time in T&T and the Caribbean. The four-time sportswoman of the year won the Caribbean Regional Badminton Confederation singles title on five occasions (1984, 1985, 1990, 1993 and 1995). She was also single and doubles champion in 1984, 1985 and 1995. In 1990 and 1993 she was a Triple Crown winner, being crowned singles, doubles and mixed doubles champion.

Cycling has produced outstanding riders such as Roger Gibbon, Gene Samuel, Maxwell Cheeseman, Michael Phillips, Hylton “Barracuda” Mitchell, Roger Smart, Njisane Phillip and Emile Abraham.

Brian Lara, is by far the greatest cricketer this country has produced. The world record holder for the highest first class score (501 not out) and highest test score (400 not out) conquered all bowlers and thrilled the cricketing world with superb timing and stroke play. Other noteworthy cricketers are Sir Learie Constantine, Jeffery Stollmeyer, Sonny Ramadhin, Gerry Gomez, Deryck Murray, Rangy Nanan, Inshan Ali, Ian Bishop, Ann Browne-John and Anisa Mohammed. 

Dwight Yorke is the most celebrated footballer, having won several championships in England and Europe with Manchester United. Other outstanding footballers from T&T are Alvin Corneal, Bobby Sookram, Sedley Joseph, Lincoln Phillips, Everald “Gally” Cummings, Richard Chinapoo, David Nahkid, Russell Latapy, and Shaka Hislop. The “Strike Squad”, 1989, “Soca Warriors”. 2006, and “Soca Princess”, 2014, have all given the population a lot be proud Trinbagonians. 

Stephen Ames, Carlos “Sexy” Baynes and Maria Nunes have all represented the golf with greater distinction. 

Hockey has provided players such as Stacey-Ann Sui Butts, Kwandwane Browne and Dwain Quan Chan. 

T&T was crowned joint World Netball Champions with Australia and New Zealand in 1979. During the 1980s the “Calypso Queens” dominated the Caribbean championship and were among the top five countries in the world. Some of the outstanding netballers of the past are Jean Pierre, Janet Bailey, Sherill Peters and Sharon Castanada. 

Road running has become a very popular sport in recent years. Some of the outstanding road runners have been Moses Ranghell, Bernard Mungroo, Michael Alexander, Curtis Cox, Richard Jones, Lynette “Granny” Luces, Richard Jones and Tonya Nero.

George Bovell III is the country’s most celebrated swimmer. His greatest accomplishment has been winning the bronze medal in the 200IM at the 2004 Athens Olympics. Other notable swimmers over the years are Paul Newallo, Sebastian Paddington, Sioban Cropper and Shantol Ince.

Some of the outstanding table tennis players are Mansingh Amarsingh, Derek DeSilva, Steve Ragbir, Seamus Clarke, Dexter St Louis and Rheann Chung. Tennis has provided players in the calibre of Lystra Lewis, Allan and Lindsay Price, Beverly Corbie and Shane Stone.

Bert Manhin and Roger Daniel have dominated the sport of shooting, while Jason Gooding and Ancil Greene have been outstanding triathletes. Cheryl Sankar stood tall in Taekwondo. 

Weightlifter Rodney Wilkes was the country’s first medallist at the Olympics winning the silver medal in the featherweight category at the 1948 London Games. At the 1952 Helsinki Games, he won bronze at the same event.

It is evident that the country’s Independence can also be measured by the contribution that sportswomen and sportsmen have made not only to their respective sports but also in ensuring that the rest of the world know that T&T is a force to be reckoned with. 

As we continue to grow as a society, every effort must be made to support our sportswomen and sportsmen.

Watch Soldier in Independence Cup
Published: 
Monday, September 1, 2014

Owner Dave Chadee, invigorated by the performances of his string in the last two months, will be expecting his five-year-old gelding Buffalo Soldier, to continue the winning tradition of the stable in today’s co-feature Grade I – Bernard Dulal-Whiteway Independence Cup over 1,800 metres on the turf, at Santa Rosa Park, Arima.

As the nation celebrates it’s 52nd Anniversary of Independence, Buffalo Soldier can strike on Massy Day At The Races.

The son of Sharp Humor/Quarteria has scored only one win for the season but has been knocking down the door to get back into the winner’s circle. Last time out, he finished second to a wound-up Bigman In Town but today he has no rival of last year’s Derby winner in the field. In addition, this event is on the turf track where he went down to Kidz Ro by one and a half length. This time, he is five kilos better off.

Jose William-Samaroo’s Sacred Trust has been prepared for this event and with Keiron Khelawan astride will go close. Glenn Mendez’s-trained Urban Knight scored a minor upset last time out when he defeated the hitherto-unbeaten Momentum over 1,350 metres, but this will be his first venture on the grass track. 

Fly Junior, from the Maniram Maharaj, stables will be hoping of landing the stable’s second win in this event in three years. The stable was successful with First To Fly in 2011. Fly Junior has won over 1,700 metres but today’s distance could find him out especially if it rides slower than good. Bergeron Rodeo must have a great shot in the event with Prayven Badrie astride. This horse keeps improving and could upset the favourites.

Jamaican-bred filly Princess Popstar will be all the rage for the Massy Oaks Stakes. The unbeaten Princess Popstar will attempt to maintain her unbeaten tag in the 1,800-metre event. The 2Penyu-owned Jamaica-bred filly has will have as her main contender today, another Jamaican Triple Crown Leg winner Raeven Renae which is owned by Merlin Samlalsingh.

Princess Popstar has won her six starts by an accumulated 56 1/2 lengths and will be difficult to beat.

Glorious Country and Market Rally should be within hailing distance at the end of the event.

Also in the jockey’s room at Santa Rosa today will be Emile Ramsammy, making a return home from his base at Woodbine in Canada.

The Arima Race Club (ARC) has put together a very competitive programme with more than $800,000 in purse money on offer.

Slump puts out Ames
Published: 
Monday, September 1, 2014

CALGARY—A final nine slump left T&T’s Stephen Ames with a three-over 73 in the second round of the Shaw Charity Classic here Saturday, and languishing at 70th on the leaderboard.

The 50-year-old Calgary resident shot three bogeys to follow up a bogey and a double bogey on the first nine, as he lost his way in the Champions Tour event at the Canyon Meadows Golf and Country Club.

Following his even-par 70 on Friday’s opening day, Ames is now three-over 143, 13 strokes adrift of leaders Bob Tway, Joe Durant and Joe Daley of the United States—all at ten-under. CMC
