Ameena Ali wins her lawsuit against the NWRHA

Thursday, December 19 2013

CHIEF Executive Officer (CEO) of the Eastern Regional Health Authority (ERHA) Ameena Ali – who has been at the centre of controversy recently – was yesterday victorious in a court matter stemming from a 2005 decision to transfer out of another regional health authority, the North Western Regional Health Authority NWRHA.

A panel of the Court of Appeal, comprising Chief Justice Ivor Archie and Justices of Appeal Rajendra Narine and Maureen Rajnauth-Lee, dismissed an appeal by the NWRHA of a 2005 decision by then High Court Judge Justice Sebastien Ventour who ruled that a decision to make Ali’s job redundant, ending her secondment from the Ministry of Health, and to transfer her back to the ministry to hold a pharmaceutical job was unjust. The NWRHA appealed and that appeal was dismissed with costs.

Ali’s own appeal of the case in relation to the quantum of damages to be paid to her was, however, rejected by the court. In this regard she was ordered to pay costs of the ministry.

Ali was last week issued a termination letter by the ERHA board after reports of interpersonal problems and resignations.

However, that letter was withdrawn by the same ERHA board after the intervention of the Minister of Health Dr Fuad Khan. Ali reportedly missed a retreat which had been planned for Tuesday between the ERHA board and management.

Khan could not be reached yesterday.
