Investigators are still working on a case against a nurse, who was arrested in December for reportedly providing medical services to known criminals, who were injured during robberies. She worked away from the hospital.
After completing the file, ranks will then forward it to the Director of Public Prosecutions for further advice, according to a credible police official.
As of now, the nurse, who was working at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) up to December 30, last, is out on station bail. She has to report to the police station frequently.
“She hasn’t been charged as yet, but she is assisting the police with investigations. We are building a case against her, so we have her reporting to the station,” the official stressed.
The nurse could be charged with aiding and harbouring a fugitive, since intelligence reportedly revealed that she was the nurse who provided medical assistance to one of five gunmen, who was shot when businessman, Nicholas Coates, returned fire during a robbery on November 23, last.
Coates was also shot to the leg. This newspaper was told that one of the bandits, who was later arrested for the shooting, had exposed the nurse to the cops.
A few days after the shooting, a tape surfaced with one of the gunmen complaining of being shot just as they were fleeing the scene.
One of them spoke of being put in trouble and immediately recommended that they go to ‘Christy’. This suggested that this individual had medical knowledge, was known to the criminal “underworld”, and was a first choice in the case of gunshot wounds.
Kaieteur News understands that the nurse was arrested on December 30, last, at GPHC, after police gathered intelligence that identified her as a nurse who provided assistance to injured gunmen away from the hospital.
