The Department of Social Welfare is investigating the case of a baby girl abandoned outside St Christopher’s Home in Naulu last Thursday night.
Meanwhile, Assistant Minister for Health Veena Bhatnagar visited the infant and confirmed she was in good health and well looked after by nurses and doctors.
COVER UP: Did Ministers Akbar and Bhatnagar mislead Public with their Cuddling of the 'Miracle Baby' while privately persuading the family and the new mother to take the baby home irrespective of cultural backlash?
Police: Anyone with information that could help police locate baby Nabiahah's mother is requested to call the nearest police station
Fijileaks: If baby 'Nabiahah' was born, as Bhatnagar claimed, in the hospital then why was Inspector Sokomuri asking the public to come forward with any information regarding the identity of the family - didn't CWM Hospital take the name and address of the expectant mother before she gave birth? Who took the baby out of the hospital? Was it the same person (s) who abandoned the baby outside the gate of St Christopher's Home in Nakasi? Or was it that the CWM had not followed the right procedures - to take the name and address of the mother and her next of kin?
Fiji Times: The nurses [at CWMH] yesterday had the privilege to name baby Nabiahah, something they would remember for the rest of their lives. "We are attached to her and the bond we share with this little angel for the past two days is something we will never forget," the nurse said. Social Welfare Minister Rosy Akbar said the Ministry of Health had informed them about baby Nabiahah and they were hoping to take action as soon as everything was settled. She said the ministry would do everything to ensure that she (baby Nabiahah) was safe. Police spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri said they were still trying to identify baby Nabiahah's family. "Anyone with information that could help police locate baby Nabiahah's mother is requested to call the nearest police station," Insp Sokomuri said.
Fijileaks: If Police were still struggling to locate the mother and her family then on what evidence did the nurses give the so-called 'Miracle Baby' as Fiji Times screamed in its headline, a Muslim name - Nabiahah Romeesah Hussein?
Fiji Sun: Abandoned Baby Back With Mother And Family. Sources also confirmed that the baby was seen at the family’s home in Western Division (Sigatoka) last week.
The identity of the announcer is well known now after her mother walked into CWM hospital and walked out with the baby. She took the baby to Sigatoka without authorization. While the Minister for Women Rozy Akbar appears daily in the media to talk about all other issues, why isn't she pushing for Police to charge the radio announcer for abandoning the baby and also the lady who "stole" the baby from the hospital. We fully sympathize with the radio announcer but law has to take its course!
There ought to be an Independent Commission of Inquiry into the 'Miracle Babygate' and roles of CWM staff, the two Ministers and Police!
The Ministry of Health is appealing to the mother of baby Nabiahah Romessah Hussein to come forward and take the new born home.
Assistance Health Minister Veena Bhatnagar visited baby Nabiahah at the CWM’s High Dependent Unit at the Children’s ward.
Baby Nabiahah was abandoned outside St Christopher’s Home in Naulu on Thursday night and is believed to be less than a week old.
‘Of course i would like to request the mother where ever you are you carried the baby for nine months in your womb and you must be feeling for the baby for whatever reasons or for whatever cultural constraints or for whatever fear you’ve have left ore abandoned you baby ,i request you to come and take your baby home with you and i even request the family to accept the baby in the family because most times i believe these young girls who are pregnant they hide it from their parents actually ."
A woman who was walking nearby heard the baby’s cry and found her wrapped in a cloth.
She then alerted police.
