TRINIDAD: Anand and Ramdeen fall sick: Taken to hospital

(TRINIDAD EXPRESS) – Both former attorney general Anand Ramlogan and Opposition Senator Gerald Ramdeen have been taken to hospital for a medical checkup after they complained about feeling ill.

The Express understands that Ramlogan was taken to a hospital on Thursday night.

Sources said he was taken back to the Anti Corruption Investigations Bureau (ACIB) on Independence square, Port of Spain this morning where police questioning resumed around 11 a.m.

The Express learnt that this morning, Ramdeen who is being detained at Riverside Plaza, Port of Spain complained about feeling unwell.

He was taken by police in a police vehicle to the Port of Spain General Hospital where he is to be medically examined.

The Express understands that Ramdeen’s attorneys had threatened to file a habeus corpus writ in the High Court challenging his detention if he was not charged by lunch time today.

However, this move has since been withdrawn. Both men have been in police custody since Wednesday.

On Wednesday morning Ramlogan was detained at the Piarco International airport by officer of the ACIB before he was scheduled to board a flight to Miami en route to the British Virgin Islands where he had a court matter.

On that same day Ramdeen turned himself in to the Chaguanas Police station.

Both attorneys are being questioned in relation to corruption with respect to legal fees during the period 2010-2015.
