THE body of Massy Energy Engineered Solutions Ltd (MEES) employee Allan Lane Ramkissoon has been returned to Trinidad.

This was confirmed by his employers in a statement on Sunday afternoon.

Ramkissoon was severely injured in a fire on June 15 at NiQuan Energy Trinidad Ltd's Pointe-a-Pierre plant, and died while being treated in Colombia on June 18.

The Occupational Safety and Health Agency (OSHA), the Energy Ministry and NiQuan have since launched investigations.

OSHA has also since shut down operations at the plant.

The statement said Ramkissoon's body was returned home "following the tragic event," and added that it would continue to help his family with funeral and other arrangements.

"The company also continues to participate in ongoing investigations to determine and understand the cause of the tragic incident," it said.

One of Ramkisoon's relatives told Newsday that the family's main priority at the moment was laying him to rest.

"It is since father's day this happened," the relative said. "Since father's day to now is more than a month. They could have managed this quicker so that the family could have gotten closure."

The relative said funeral arrangements would be co-ordinated by Ramkissoon's wife.
