MP for St Augustine Khadijah Ameen’s legal team has issued a pre-action protocol letter to social media blogger Rhoda Bharath’s Newsauce to remove and apologise for her post where she alleged MP Ameen played a role in procuring fake vaccination cards for her constituency staff.

In a press release issued by Ms Ameen this afternoon, she stated that “I usually do not directly respond to these reprehensible comments and accusations especially from PNM trolls, but we cannot allow persons to shamelessly attack an individual’s character without any substantiations and without consequences.”

The following is a press release from MP Ameen:

MP Ameen’s legal team issued a Pre-Action Protocol Letter to social media blogger Rhoda Bharath’s Newsauce to remove and apologise for her post where she alleged MP Ameen played a role in procuring fake vaccination cards for her constituency staff.

Although, Miss Bharath could not be found by the server yesterday and the day before that (Wednesday and Thursday), MP Ameen said she received a call from her attorney this morning (Friday 14th January 2022) confirming that Miss Bharath was in fact served at 11:02 am. 


MP Ameen has adamantly denied the serious allegations circulating from the paid PNM blogger. The blogger accused MP Ameen of participating in a criminal offence of procuring fake Covid-19 vaccine cards without a shred of evidence. 


MP Ameen stated, “I usually do not directly respond to these reprehensible comments and accusations especially from PNM trolls, but we cannot allow persons to shamelessly attack an individual’s character without any substantiations and without consequences.”


Throughout these allegations, MP Ameen has maintained that vaccination is not a requirement for employment or for constituents to access services at her office unlike in the public service where thousands are being threatened with job loss in the government’s vaccine mandate that it labels a “Quasi safe zone policy”.


MP Ameen rendered, “In the face of these baseless accusations, I wish to thank those who have expressed support publicly, and personally either in person or via phone. I wish to assure the constituents of St. Augustine that I will continue to serve with integrity and I will not be intimidated in my representation of their needs.”


MP Ameen maintained that she will not be intimidated by these utterly disgraceful tactics by the PNM.
