The fate of a local doctor, who made racist comments to an employee via a recorded telephone message, will be determined later today, when the Council of the Medical Board of Trinidad and Tobago meets.
The doctor in question owns a private practice in south Trinidad. In one of the audio recordings that went viral, the doctor can be heard instructing the employee to ask people applying for a job to attach a photo of themselves to ensure that they were not black. He said a lot of his patients were racist and preferred East Indian nurses over African nurses.
In another audio, the doctor also referred to police officers as “uneducated” and “dunce n*****”, and threatened to fire the employee if she ever mentioned going to the Labour Board over outstanding wages.
President of the Medical Board Dr Kenneth Charles, revealed that the findings of today’s meeting would be made available to the public.
