“JUSTICE must be tempered with mercy.” These were the words of Health Minister Terrence Deyalsingh as he announced there was a second chance being offered to the young female intern who cried wolf after claiming she was held up at gunpoint and robbed while on duty at the Port-of-Spain General Hospital, last month.

In this space yesterday, Dr Sherene Kalloo launched a broadside against Health Minister Terrence Deyalsingh and his almost jokey war against the Zika virus, pre-empting a column I had already half-written, titled “Man vs Mosquito”.
Dr Kalloo argued that Minister Deyalsingh’s declaration of war against Zika and the Aedes Egypti mosquito by deploying soldiers, as hard-hit Brazil has done, as being a failed strategy.
It has not worked in Brazil and it will not work here.

Deyalsingh’s nearest rival was the United National Congress (UNC)’s Ian Alleyne who, at some points in the night, appeared in the lead. The Independent Liberal Party (ILP)’s Om Lalla managed the third largest share of votes but was not really in the contest.
