Guyana to aggressively pursue Jeetindra Sookram case- consul general

(Trinidad Guardian) The Guyana government has expressed concern over an incident in which one of its nationals, Jeetindra Sookram, died after he was denied urgent medical attention at the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex, Mt Hope, on Thursday. Guyana consul general Ernie Ross said yesterday that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Guyana is now liaising with the T&T authorities to ensure that something like this never happens again.

“We will be aggressively pursing the matter with the authorities here with a view to determine what happened and the consequences of the action and to ensure that it never happens again,” Ross told the T&T Guardian. He also promised financial help to Sookram’s wife Vidya Bachu, who has appealed for help to take her husband’s body back to Guyana.
