Former T&T Transparency head: Doctors, lawyers in cahoots to stop lawsuits

(Trinidad Express) Former Trinidad and Tobago Transparency Institute chairman Victor Hart has severely criticised local lawyers and doctors, claiming that they band together to prevent lawsuits against their colleagues.

Hart also slammed the Law Association and the Medical Association, presumably the Medical Practi-tioners Association of Trini-dad and Tobago (MPATT), though he does not mention it by name, for not speaking out on social issues, including the hunger strike by Highway Re-Route Movement leader Dr Wayne Kublalsingh.

Hart, a retired construction professional and chair of the Cabinet-appointed Extractive Industries Transparency Ini-tiative, made the comments while delivering the keynote address at the Raymond & Pierre Ltd 40th anniversary breakfast meeting held on Friday at Capital Plaza Hotel (formerly Crowne Plaza), Port of Spain.
