BLOOD samples of the late Lawrence Anthony have been sent abroad for tests to determine the cause of his death.

Father Anand Lal Anthony said this was confirmed by the Health Minister, Dr Neil Sharma, during their meeting on Tuesday.

"The minister said they would be able to provide me with an update once results have been brought back," Mr Anthony said.

"However, if the results are negative, they will have to take his tissues across for further tests.

"I'm just hopeful that something positive will prevail and that my family will be told of a genuine reason of Lawrence's death."

Anthony, 18, passed away at the CWM Hospital last Wednesday after being admitted for two days.

His family had claimed they were not told of what happened to him before and after his passing.
