Michael Jackson’s ex-doctor fights for Trinidad and Tobago license

Dr.Conrad Murray

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad – Grenada-born cardiologist Dr Conrad Murray who was one of Michael Jackson’s personal physicians, is calling on  the Medical Board of  Trinidad and Tobago (MBTT) to  confirm his registration status as a member of the Board.

Murray was reported to have sought confirmation since last May as he wishes to practice in Trinidad.

But  according to a local media report, he has not received a response  from the  MBTT and  is threatening legal action.

In a letter dated May 1, 2017, Murray’s attorney, Kiel Taklalsingh, wrote to the MBTT regarding his registration status with the board. The letter stemmed from certain inquiries being made of the Medical Board, which he described as “disseminating erroneous information” with respect to his registration status. Those misrepresentations, Taklalsingh said, “have the potential to cause serious economic harm to my client, with such harm being reasonably foreseeable to the persons perpetuating them.”

The letter claimed that Murray continues to be a bona fide registered MBTT member and the board was called upon to acknowledge and confirm  his legal status in writing.

However, to date the MBTT has not responded to Taklalsingh’s letter although it was given 21 days to do so, failing which legal action was threatened against board members who were alleged to have spread malicious information about Murray’s status.

Murray was jailed in 2010 for four years for involuntary manslaughter after the  death  of United States pop singer Michael Jackson but served two  years in prison before being released. His Texas, California and Nevada medical licenses were suspended.
