As promised, here are the documents – this is the first tranche as the files are large, it took a while to get them scanned and if you don’t act soon? Someone else will as not only Caribbean but every news entity across the globe has been told. This is the background below:
A few weeks ago a story broke but the traditional media hardly seemed interested. Don’t they want the truth? Don’t they care when the innocent is being abused and un-faired? While the traditional media seem totally disinterested, Barbados Underground was running a blog asking: “Is the Barbadian Population being properly served by its news media.” But if the truth of the recent issue between Sparman, the Health Minister and Dr. Ishmael are know, the answer to this question would have been obvious.
The question is, does the traditional media want the truth? Secondly, exactly how committed to the proposed Freedom of Information legislation are the members of the ruling DLP government, especially since not long ago, we were being told that government ministers are: “squeaky clean,” now this!
Why would the Director of Medical Services (DMS) of the Barbados QEH be acting on behalf of the Health Minister of that country and seeking to get a heart patient transferred from the QEH, to a private clinic ran by a man, who is not a surgeon?
Is the Barbados Health Minister a director of the said Sparman’s clinic? And why the scare tactics to sue when Dr. Ishmael seems to be asking reasonable questions in the interest of patient care.
Is there a mold in the A&E? How did Sparman know that a heart patient was at the QEH? Why did the DMS call on behalf of the Health Minister to convince Mr. Cotterell’s wife to have her critically ill husband transferred to Sparman’s clinic, knowing full well that Mr. Cott**** (a UK visitor to Barbados) was seriously ill and that he was on non-invasive ventilation and was in no condition to be transferred out of the QEH to Sparman‘s Clinic in Belleville?
And to think that the Barbadians health officials would suspend Dr. Ishmael and then try to silence him to hide this ugliness by threatening to sue him. What an enormous abuse of power? Surely this warrants an investigation and the dismissal of the Minister. Having reviewed all to documents and facts associated with this fiasco, you will agree that it is not Dr. Ishmael, against whom criminal proceedings ought to be immediately initiated.
Corruption comes in various forms. Nude news of television and now being fingered in a serious medical health scandal. And the ruling Democratic Labour Party Government of Barbados says that its ministers are “squeaky clean!”
