Acting Commissioner of Police, Stephen Williams, gives an update on a case involving a surgery that was conducted last December at the St Augustine Private Hospital to remove cocaine pellets from a patient.
The United Kingdom-based Medical Protection Society (MPS) Ltd recently published the story.
It was alleged that cocaine pellets were removed from a patient’s stomach at the institution.
The issue sparked concern among citizens as to why neither the patient nor the doctor was arrested for the offence.
Speaking at the Trinidad and Tobago weekly police media briefing today, acting Commissioner of Police Stephen Williams persons have been questioned in connection with the matter.
He added that while investigations are ongoing there was no evidence to charge anyone.
