‘Somebody has to do something.’
Those are the words of Dr Andre Alleyne, a doctor who was named by a media house as a complainant against Dr Avinash Sawh, who admitted to making ‘offensive and derogatory remarks’ against ethnic groups and members of the police service.
Dr Sawh later apologised for his comments and an investigation which was raised by the Medical Board of Trinidad and Tobago was withdrawn, to allow for persons to file formal complaints, the Board said.
Dr Alleyne told Loop News that he delivered his formal complaint today, signed and dated, on the Board’s official form.
Dr Alleyne, a practising physician since 2012, questioned how he was identified as a complainant when he was told by the Board that he had not filled out the official form.
