Health Minister denies editorial claims


    Health Minister Terrence Deyalsingh is denying a newspaper editorial which claims he made certain statements about the recent lavish wedding in Valsayn.

    The piece alleged that he confirmed the attendance of another Minister at the wedding.

    It claims Mr Deyalsingh stated that he advised the person not to do what he did, since he knew the individual and had been approached for advice.

    The Minister denies making any such statements and has since clarified that the person he was referring to was the host of the wedding, and the advice given was to not hold such a large event.

    A call was made for a retraction, and the newspaper has since added a note of clarification to the editorial in question.
