CEO of the South West Regional Health Authority (SWRHA) Keith McDonald is promising that if any employee is found culpable in denying a 13-month-old baby care at the Marabella Health Centre on Friday, he or she will be sanctioned.
McDonald said he had a preliminary report before him yesterday, but there were still outstanding details that are needed. He said the investigator will be speaking with staff at the health centre soon.
US President Donald Trump is issuing a strong warning to anyone trading with Iran. This is following his re-imposition of sanctions on the country. He tweeted "Anyone doing business with Iran will NOT be doing business with the United States.” Re-imposed sanctions took effect overnight and tougher ones relating to oil exports will begin in November. Iran's president said the measures were "psychological warfare" which aimed to "sow division among Iranians".
The European Union has issued a warning to Trinidad & Tobago of possible sanctions, with a yellow card for being uncooperative in the fight against illegal fishing.
It was announced via a statement issued by the European Commission in Brussels today.
Kiribati and Sierra Leone have also been yellow-carded.
The statement says that "Trinidad and Tobago also has a large fleet operating internationally where authorities do not control or inspect foreign vessels, nor cooperate with relevant flag States."
