Moses Nagamootoo explained : “They would be arrested, they would be detained and they would be charged… These measures become the law and therefore they are punishable by whatever penalties are prescribed within the law… For me, the issue is not how much fine is imposed as a deterrent. The issue is to be able to arrest and detain these violators and make them accountable [to] the law. It’s not the size of the fine, it’s not the length of the imprisonment but it’s the fact that we are going out there to show that the law must be enforced,” External link

stabroeknews Sunday, April 12, 2020 11:07:00 AM EAT

Moses Nagamootoo explained : “The original concern is that government cannot be a monopoly in testing and private institutions should be allowed…the private institutions are being brought into play and they are now a partner. Since they are private institutions, they may very well work out the conditions under which they do such testing with patients who may prefer to go to a private institution rather than to go to a public institution where everything is done free. So, there is a difference between the mode of operation of either of the two institutions but yes in a situation of an emergency, I would think that it is feasible in fact for me it is reasonable for private institutions to seek a kind of support from the state in terms of doing the test and even doing the treatment and management of positive cases,” External link

If the President hadn’t done so they would sing a different tune that he had ignored GECOM. That meeting with the new chairman shows that the President is paying due respect for the independent authority of the commission.

stabroeknews Sunday, April 12, 2020 11:07:00 AM EAT

Moses Nagamootoo explained : “The original concern is that government cannot be a monopoly in testing and private institutions should be allowed…the private institutions are being brought into play and they are now a partner. Since they are private institutions, they may very well work out the conditions under which they do such testing with patients who may prefer to go to a private institution rather than to go to a public institution where everything is done free. So, there is a difference between the mode of operation of either of the two institutions but yes in a situation of an emergency, I would think that it is feasible in fact for me it is reasonable for private institutions to seek a kind of support from the state in terms of doing the test and even doing the treatment and management of positive cases,” External link

If the President hadn’t done so they would sing a different tune that he had ignored GECOM.
