Nunez-Tesheira awarded $18m in medical negligence case

FORMER Government Minister Karen Nunez-Tesheira will receive more than $18 million in compensation from Gulf View Medical Centre and one of its doctors. This after the Privy Council upheld the ruling of a High Court judge and the local Appeal Court. The judgement was delivered today.

Attorneys: A money trail of millions, Faris has to account

The millions of dollars in taxpayers’ money spent in the persecution of former attorney general Anand Ramlogan raises issues of misbehaviour in office on the part of former attorney general Faris Al-Rawi.
