Former C.E.O. explains cheques signed to Pharmacol

Story PictureDr. Alvaro Rosado was also recalled today. When he testified on December eleventh, said he did not know that the hospital did business with Pharmacol Limited, a company co-owned by Freddy Mansu, a radiographer employed at the K.H.M.H. Rosado could not remember if the hospital purchased items from that business. So today he was shown copies of the cheques he signed and was asked to explain.

Justice Adolph Lucas, Chief Commissioner
‘Is that your signature on the cheque?”

Dr. Alvaro Rosado, Former, CEO, K.H.M.H.
“Yes sir, it looks like my signature.”

Justice Adolph Lucas
“So having seen the cheque, what can you say now about this Pharmacol Ltd?”

Dr. Alvaro Rosado
“I can say that I signed a cheque on the nineteenth of October 2007 for ten thousand two hundred and ninety-eight dollars and ninety cents in favour of Pharmacol Ltd, based on a requisition which was attached and that requisition has the appropriate authorizing agents for the hospital being Dr. Ghazi who was the Director of Medical Services and a representative from the Finance Department. I cannot make out that signature now. I signed that cheque two years ago and two years ago I must have known who these signatures belonged to. Now, two years later, I cannot tell you who the signatures belong to, now at this point in time. But when I signed that cheque I must have known who they belong to.”

Orvin Nicholas, Commissioner
“In the same token, do you think you must have known who you were paying to two years ago?”

Dr. Alvaro Rosado
“No sir, I don’t know Mr. Edmund Gough, I don’t know Mr. De la Fuente, I don’t know any of these people. Based on the documentation provided to me by the directors and the appropriate agents of Karl Heusner, I signed cheques.”
