The company that used infected eye injections on at least seven patients – resulting in them being blinded in either one or both eyes – may soon have to answer in court.
Minister of Health Terrence Deyalsingh said a file on the company has been forwarded to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), Roger Gaspard, for his review and decision. The Minister remained tight-lipped about the issue as he did not want to reveal any information that would jeopardise the case. As a result of the allegations, Deyalsigh said, the company will not receive any tenders. However, a source revealed that the company received over $15 million to supply pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical drugs to public hospitals this year.
