Vibert Small

DEFAMATION OF CHARACTER: The Ministry of Health ID belonging to Vibert Small.

THE Ministry of Health employee whose image was plastered over social media earlier this month and labelled as a “bandit” has instructed his attorneys to issue a pre-action protocol letter to the woman who made the original post, seeking a public apology and “significant” monetary compensation for defamation of character.

Should she fail to do so within the next seven days, then legal action will be instituted against her at the High Court in Port of Spain. Yesterday afternoon, attorneys Keith Scotland, Asha Watkins-Montserin, Keisha Kydd-Hannibal and Sarah Ramsingh issued the letter to the woman, Sharon Meighoo-Gildharry, on behalf of 39-year-old Vibert Small.
