Robinson still in hospital
FORMER president Arthur NR Robinson remained hospitalised yesterday, but was "resting comfortably", according to a relative.
The relative, speaking to the Express via telephone yesterday, said there was no word yet when he would be released to return home. Robinson was admitted to St Clair Medical Centre on Monday but no reason has been released.
On Tuesday acting Prime Minister Jack Warner visited him and described as "weak but extremely lucid" and was having problems eating. He said he did not pry into the reason for his hospitalisation as that was a private matter.
In February 2010 the former president and prime minister was taken to St Clair Medical after collapsing during a funeral service in Maraval.
Robinson, 85, has suffered in the past from a number of ailments, including high blood pressure and glaucoma, and has had surgery to correct heart complications and prostate problems. He has been admitted to hospital a number of times over the past few years.
