[www.inewsguyana.com] – The alleged raped prisoner, 23 – year – old Colwyn Harding in a brief chat with iNews on Friday (January 17) from his hospital bed, admitted that he did not inform doctors at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) that he was sodomized.
When asked why, following accusations by medical professional mere hours ago, the young man with tears in his eyes said he was too embarrassed to relate the information.
Doctors of the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GHPC) in a shocking and contradicting statement on Friday (January 17) said the alleged raped prisoner never informed them that he was raped and examinations of that ilk were never conducted.
The Medical Professionals said the possibly of making that determination now is highly improbable since the incident allegedly occurred between November 15 -18 and he would most likely have already healed.
According to Director of Medial and Professional Services at the GPHC, Sheik Amir up until this point, and despite the many publications in the media where Harding and relatives allege that he had a baton forced up his anus by Police Constable 31 – year – old Devin Mahendra Singh, while in custody, no such report has been made directly to doctors.
Amir said Harding was brought to the GPHC for the first time on December 13, 2013 (almost a month after the alleged rape occurred) and was diagnosed with hernia and referred to the clinic. Doctors say they saw him again on December 17, at the Accident and Emergency (A&E) Unit where he complained of having severe pains, was vomiting and there was an increased swelling around is private.
The Director said on examination he was found to have a strangulated hernia which resulted in the death of his bowels, on December 18 he underwent his first surgery.
He said this is a case that they had seen many times in the past and didn’t think something was odd until they first say the reports in the media about a week ago. “Most men get it; we have seen plenty other cases many times before, usually coming out of the interior.”
When quizzed, Amir said that it is very likely that the hernia could have resulted from having been hit in the abdomen. He said if the patient had informed them of the allegations, examinations in that regard could have been carried out.
Doctors say the young man who is still a patient at the GPHC, would need a final and definite surgery. According to Amir Harding is eating but has lost a lot of weight and is currently using colonoscopy bags to defecate.
