Still to get official word about the findings of an investigation into the death of Corentyne mother Vanessa Lewis-Sahadeo, who died last month after alleged negligence by medical officials, her family angry yesterday staged a protest across the street from the New Amsterdam Public Hospital to call for justice.

Although Health Minister Dr Frank Anthony has announced the suspension of a doctor and two nurses as a result of the investigation, it was only after yesterday’s protest that Lewis-Sahadeo’s family heard from Regional Chairman David Armogan that the suspended doctor was sent back to Cuba, while the two nurses remain suspended pending a further investigation.
