Witness Contradicts Medical Council

first_imgDoctor Vuyu Kanba Golakai, the vice president and Dean of AM Dogliotti College of Medicine at the University of Liberia (UL), yesterday told Civil Law Court ‘A’ that the Liberia Medical and Dental Council (LMDC) did not authorize Dr. Nyaquoi Kargbo’s committee to probe the John F. Kennedy Medical Center (JFKMC).Dr. Golakai’s testimony contradicted the LMDC’s claim that the hospital was responsible for the death of Rep. Edward Forh’s daughter Nakita.Dr. Golakai testified as defense expert witness, but alleged that the Dr. Kargbo Committee’s recommendation was never accepted by members of the LMDC, and that such a report should not have been used by Rep. Forh to institute a US$25 million lawsuit against the JFK.Dr. Kargbo, the Registrar General of the council, and another doctor only identified as Pewee, was the pair that investigated several medical doctors assigned at the JFKMC including its Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Billy Johnson, Dr. David Okoru and nursing staff. They then forwarded a recommendation calling for strong punishment against those they investigated.The Kargbo Committee claimed that the health workers were liable for Nakita’s death, which they described as “negligence.”It was based on that report that Rep. Forh instituted a US$25 million negligence lawsuit against the hospital for damages.In his testimony, Dr. Golakai said whenever a committee is set up to investigate such professional matters, their findings and recommendations are expected to be approved by members of the LMDC, which he claimed did not happen in Kargbo’s case.According to Dr. Golakai, the procedure used by the LMDC chairman to appoint members of the committee was contrary to their normal practice.He said that LMDC’s procedures stipulate that a member serving on an investigative committee should be an official on the Grievance and Ethics Committee, of which he alleged Kargbo and Pewee were not members.“They ignored the functions of the Grievance and Ethics Committee and did their own thing,” the expert witness claimed.“The chairman erred to have appointed both Kargbo and Pewee, who were not statutory members of the LMDC that would have made an important decision for the council,” he alleged, adding, “they were only administrative staff, and should not have been on any committee to investigate that matter.”According to Dr. Golakai, their chairman also erred to have constituted a two-member investigative committee.“Our policies provide that investigative committees should constitute three or more members, and not two,” Golakai told the court.He denied that the report was presented to the LMDC for discussion on its merits and demerits.“The LMDC did not evaluate the draft report before it reached the public,” he said.“They released the report without being given the authority to do so. Those were some of the concerns we raised as council members, and they are yet to address them before the matter reached this far,” Golakai told the court.Besides, he claimed that the report was marred by several ethical breaches.Nakita Forh, who was asthmatic, was on September 26, 2014 taken to the JFK, to use its nebulizer (oxygen) to help stabilize her breathing condition, and was allegedly refused service. She later died on the hospital’s compound for which her father is seeking US$25 million as damages.The case continues.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Enbridge CEO says changes to Bill C 69 are ‘critical’ for Canadian energy sector

first_img“I think it’s great news that people are going to take the extra effort to ensure that people really understand the role that energy plays and what it does for our quality of life,” he said.Enbridge pipelines handle about 62 per cent of Canada’s exports of crude oil into the U.S. and move about 18 per cent of all natural gas consumed in the U.S. CALGARY, A.B. – The CEO of Enbridge Inc. says it’s “critical” to Canada’s energy future that substantive changes are made to proposed federal legislation to revamp how big resource projects win federal approval.Speaking after his company’s annual shareholders’ meeting in Calgary, Al Monaco says there are three or four major problem areas in Bill C-69 that must be addressed.His comments come as the Senate considers amendments to the bill that would repeal the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act and retire the National Energy Board, leaving the Impact Assessment Agency of Canada and the Canadian Energy Regulator as authorities responsible for assessments of the environmental, health, social and economic impacts of designated projects.- Advertisement -Earlier in the day, following a speech at a solar conference in Calgary, Natural Resources Minister Amarjeet Sohi said it’s vital that the bill be passed as soon as possible because it replaces a broken system that is preventing projects from being built.But critics including the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers have demanded changes designed to prevent public policy debates from being part of project assessments, restrict application interveners to those directly affected by the project or with expertise, set firm timelines and limit government ministers’ discretionary powers.Monaco says he applauds the aggressive stance of Alberta’s newly elected United Conservative Premier Jason Kenney in support of energy projects.Advertisementlast_img read more

Basket fall: Asia and Africa out of World Cup at first hurdle

first_imgThat came hours after Tunisia surrendered a spot in the next round, and a guaranteed place at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, with an agonising 67-64 loss to Puerto Rico.Nigeria thrashed South Korea 108-66 at the same time, but the fate of Africa’s highest-ranked team already been sealed after losing both their opening games.The last time there was no team from Asia or Africa in the second round was in 1998, when the championship had only 16 teams.Now it has a record 32 but it is almost exclusively teams from the Americas, led by reigning champions the United States, and Europe who will compete for the medals.Outside of those only Australia, nominally Asian in the FIBA rankings are concerned, have also reached the second round and they could be joined by New Zealand if they beat Greece on Thursday.Paolo Povia, coach of the Ivory Coast, said there were “a lot of factors” why African sides had failed to make their mark in China.“There’s definitely a difference in experience and knowledge of the game,” said Povia after his team lost 80-63 to Poland on Wednesday, their third defeat in three games.“The development of the game (in Africa) is a little inconsistent. In our team we have some guys who have learned to play the game in different places all over the world.“So you don’t get the same continuity all the time in how the game is learned.”Basketball is hugely popular in the Philippines but the national team — the joint-shortest at the competition — have lost all three of their matches.They were drubbed 108-62 and 126-67 by Italy and title-contenders Serbia respectively before narrowly succumbing to already eliminated Angola on Wednesday.Serbia’s plain-speaking coach Sasha Djordjevic said that the Philippines’ lack of physicality and athleticism “might be the problem”.“Obviously you are missing quality,” he told a reporter from the Philippines.After easy wins over the Philippines and Angola, Djordjevic also questioned the format of the enlarged World Cup, containing eight groups of four countries in the first phase.“There are some groups that from the start you practically know which two teams are going to advance,” he said, shaking his head.“I don’t know if that’s a good thing for the World Cup in general because what does it serve us?“What does it serve the Philippine team losing by this points difference?” he said, of Serbia’s 59-point win.Ousted teams such as the Philippines need to rally themselves, because they now face a low-key “classification” round with Olympic qualifying in play.0Shares0000(Visited 22 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000It is the largest basketball World Cup ever but there will be no teams from Asia or Africa in the second round of the sport’s global showpiece © AFP / Ye Aung ThuSHANGHAI, China, Sep 5 – It is the largest basketball World Cup ever but there will be no teams from Asia or Africa in the second round of the sport’s global showpiece.Hosts China with their 1.4 billion population crashed out of contention on Wednesday with a 72-59 defeat to Venezuela.last_img read more
