The Express visited the Scarborough General Hospital, where Dabbourah is fighting for his life, and spoke to a relative who was among a number of family members gathered.


One man is dead following a confrontation with police yesterday evening. While up to press time last night details were still coming in, the Express was reliably informed that the incident took place at about 5 p.m. at Maturita Extension, Arima.

GERONTOLOGIST and former director of the Division of Ageing of the Ministry of Social Development Dr Jennifer Rouse is concerned that families are shuffling their elderly relatives into homes without checking to ensure proper care is being provided.

Police are seeking the urgent assistance of the public in locating 21-year-old Kesha Daniella Darlington. Darlington, of Longden Street, Arima, was last seen at Jenny’s Bar located near her home about 11 a.m. on Monday.
