Giving Sep 20, '08 Occupation:
The request for this statement was made at an Emergency Meeting of the Board held on March 16, In that capacity, I report to and take instructions from the Chief Executive Officer of the Authority.
I apologized for the delay and promised to send the letter out later that day. I completed the letter and was about to transmit a copy to the Chief Executive Officer, when I observed that she had sent an email on the matter.
The email was dated Sunday March 13, and time stamped The hard copy of the email is attached as Appendix 1.
I arrived at the Conference Room on or about 7. I explained to her that I had not sent the letter on Sunday because of her email of that day, but that I had in my possession a printed copy of the letter. She also enquired about the status of the letter appointing the persons to investigate the death of the patient.
I informed her that the appointment letter would be completed in accordance with the contents of her email of Sunday, following the meeting.
After glancing at the letter the Chief Executive Officer then tore it up. I asked why it was torn up, to which the Chief Executive Officer replied that the letter was too harsh and that she wanted to take a softer approach.
I advised her of the need to ensure that all staff had the required amounts and type of leave to cover the period of the investigation and that the staff remained available for the investigation. In the Conference room, the Chief Executive Officer welcomed the group of persons present, made the introductions and then began to address the group.
Among the other persons present, were a number of doctors and the President of the Medical Professionals Association of Trinidad and Tobago.
I am in the process of transcribing those notes. However, I also recalled that that option was firmly rejected by the Board. Therefore, I wondered whether there had been a change in the position of the Board of Directors over the weekend. However, I did not question the Chief Executive Officer on the decision to pursue this approach and remained resolved to follow her direction.
Following the meeting with the doctors and at about 9. There again, I took notes. I immediately did so, by email. Over the ensuing hours and into Tuesday morning, I discussed with the Chief Executive Officer several instructions for changes to the suspension letter, including the fact that I had prepared the suspension letter for execution by the General Manager, Human Resources.
I was then instructed to make the executing party, the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Authority. The letter appointing the Investigative Panel was abandoned, because I had been advised at about 7.
By Tuesday afternoon, I had prepared and sent to the Chief Executive Officer the package of final suspension letters, for signature by the Chairman. Sometime later, I was informed by the Chief Executive Officer that the Chairman had either instructed her to execute the letters or had refused to sign the letters.
I therefore changed the letters and sent them letters to the Chief Executive Officer, for her signature. I was then asked to send the letters to the General Manager, Human Resources, for transmission.
I urged the Chief Executive Officer to expedite the service of the suspension letters as the delay now risked violating the directives of the Board and compromising the announcement of the Honorable Minister.
On Wednesday morning I was asked to make a further change to the suspension letter, which I asked my Professional Secretary to effect and transmit to the Chief Executive Officer, as I was on my way to a meeting. A copy of the final suspension letter is annexed hereto as Appendix 3. On my way to that meeting, I met the Chief Executive Officer and enquired as to the status of the letters.
I was informed that the letters were be hand delivered that morning Wednesday March 16, I heard nothing about the letters until I was called to the Emergency Meeting of the Board later that day.
